The title of this post is a take-off on the title of the essay I'm about to rip to shreds.
Some idiot named Sonia Bailley writing in American Thinker...

It is crucial that Westerners discover what Muslims are saying when they recite the Islamic mandatory prayers before sharing their places of worship.
* I'D GO EVEN FURTHER AND PROMOTE ACTUALLY READING AN AUTHORITATIVE ENGLISH-TRANSLATION OF THE KORAN.
A few days ago, an Ontario synagogue invited Muslim worshipers to lead the Friday prayer. This article explains what the Islamic daily prayers mean, with focus on the Friday prayer within the context of Islamic law (or Sharia).
Being better informed will make Westerners think twice before opening the doors to Muslim for prayer.
* NOT SURE ABOUT THAT... THE CLOSING OF DOORS THING... BUT I'M ALL FOR PEOPLE BEING BETTER INFORMED.
Canadian Muslims in southern Ontario were invited to preach the supremacy of Islam...
* THE "SUPREMACY..."
* YA MEAN... LIKE HOW WE CHRISTIANS PREACH THE "SUPREMACY" OF JESUS...? LIKE JEWS PREACH THEIR "SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP" WITH YHWH...?
...at a local synagogue and church.
In a goodwill gesture, Peterborough’s Mark Street United Church and Beth Israel Synagogue opened their doors to Muslims for prayer following the recent fire damage of the Masjid al-Salaam mosque. President of the Beth Israel Synagogue and his board of directors hosted two Islamic prayer sessions this past Friday with not even a suspicion that the underlying theme in Islamic prayer is to curse and do away with non-believers like them.
* Er... NOT REALLY... (BUT, HEY... KEEP READING; I'LL ILLUSTRATE THE LIE.)
A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran.
* ANYONE READ THE OLD TESTAMENT LATELY?
* LISTEN... "HATRED" AND "REJECTION" ARE NOT ONE AND THE SAME. I'M ALL FOR HATING THE HATE... BUT AS FOR THE REJECTION... ONE CAN'T REALLY CALL FOR "INCLUSION" ABSENT BELIEVING IN "EXCLUSION" WHEN IT COMES TO MOST RELIGIONS. (AGAIN... "ACCEPT CHRIST"... OR...)
* GET IT?
Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. The very first Koranic chapter, considered the most exalted of all chapters, is a prayer directed to Allah asking him to keep Muslims away from the misguided path of Jews and Christians.
* YEAH? AND? SO...???
* I DON'T SEEM TO RECALL THE PASSAGES FROM THE GOSPELS CALLING FOR CHRIST'S FOLLOWERS TO FOLLOW THE PATH OF JUDAISM... OR ANY OTHER RELIGION FOR THAT MATTER. INDEED... HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION? MAN... THOSE PAPISTS (CATHOLICS) WERE PISSED!
(*SNORTING AS I SMIRK*)
This chapter is a necessary part of the five mandatory daily prayers, and is recited not once, but anywhere from 17 to 100 times a day by devout Muslims (or in a broader sense, 6200 to 36,500 times a year).
Repetition priming inculcates the notion of superiority over non-Muslims into the minds of all Muslims...
* CATHOLICS BELIEVE ONE HAS TO BE CATHOLIC IN ORDER TO GAIN ENTRANCE INTO HEAVEN IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN; CHRISTIANS IN GENERAL BELIEVE ONE NEEDS TO ACCEPT CHRIST; JEWS BELIEVE... (WELL... POINT MADE... NOT NEED TO BELABOR.)
...instilling a deep mistrust of non-Muslims: “Guide us along the right path, the path of those whom you favored (referring to Muslims), and not along the path of those who earn your anger (referring to Jews), or those who go astray (referring to Christians).
* WELL... KINDA MAKES SENSE IF ONE BELIEVES THAT ISLAM IS THE TRUE RELIGION!
(*SNORTING AS I ROLL MY EYES*)
The references to Jews and Christians...
* WHO ELSE WOULD THEY REFERENCE?! ANYONE GOT A MAP HANDY? SOME HISTORY BOOKS?
...are in accord with Al-Tirmidhi’s authentic hadiths (or Islamic narrations attributed to Mohammed) and other venerated Islamic interpretations, as reflected in some English translations of the Koran.
* SO FAR I'M NOT FEELING THREATENED...
* IS ANYONE FEELING THREATENDED BASED ON THIS?
* HEY... MY FRIENDS WHO ARE "CHOSEN" - ANY THOUGHTS?
Friday prayers also include recitation of Koranic chapters 62 and 63 where Jews who reject Allah’s commandments in the Torah are loathed and compared to “the likeness of a donkey carrying books but understands them not.” Jews are told to “long for death” if they pretend to be Allah’s favorite.
* SOUNDS LIKE PRETTY STANDARD STUFF... (HAS ANYONE EVERY ACTUALLY READ THE OLD TESTAMENT?) ONLY... IN THE OLD TESTAMENT IT WAS THE JEWS vs. NON-JEWS.
* ANYONE WANNA CHAT ABOUT THE INQUISITION?
(*ANOTHER RUEFUL CHUCKLE*)
Non-believers are condemned to a state of error...
* OOH...!!! SCARY...!!!
...until Mohammad is sent by Allah to purify them “from the filth of disbelief and polytheism” with his verses or revelations from Allah.
* SO... IN THE FUTURE. (KINDA LIKE OUR WAITING FOR THE SECOND COMING... AND THE JEWS WAITING FOR - IN THEIR VIEW - THE FIRST COMING, I GUESS.)
“Hypocrites” or apostates from Islam are considered enemies, “so beware of them, may Allah destroy them!"
* MAY "ALLAH." NOT "MAY MUSLIMS." NOT "MAY THOSE OF THE MUSLIM FAITH." KIND OF A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT THE AUTHOR OBVIOUSLY INTENDS FOR READERS TO TAKE FROM THIS PIECE AND WHAT ONE GETS WHEN ONE REALLY CONSIDERS WHAT ONE IS READING.
Is it any wonder why many Muslims are prohibited from being friends with Jews and Christians?
* SO... TELL ME ABOUT YOUR HASIDIM FRIENDS, FOLKS...
* SERIOUSLY... WHAT ABSOLUTE BUNK.
The Koran condemns them to hell (which melts their skin and bellies) in nearly 500 verses for not believing in Mohammad and for not converting to Islam.
* SO? THAT'S THE AFTERLIFE. (WE'LL FIND OUT - WON'T WE?!)
* AGAIN... THE AUTHOR NEEDS TO READ THE OLD TESTAMENT... AND THE NEW TESTAMENT AS WELL.
* ANYWAY... THERE'S MORE. FEEL FREE TO READ IT. BUT SERIOUSLY... DON'T TRUST ME... DON'T TRUST THE AUTHOR OF THE SCREED... INSTEAD READ THE KORAN FOR YOURSELF IF YOU'RE FOCUSED UPON WHAT ISLAM DOES AND DOESN'T CALL FOR. AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT... READ THE TORAH... THE OLD TESTAMENT... THE NEW TESTAMENT.
* HAPPY HANUKKAH...
