Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaeda's No. 2, George Habash of the PLO and Mahmoud al-Zahar, the Hamas strongman in Gaza, as Thomas Wagner from Associated Presspoints out....are all medical doctors.
As all good people who love freedom, I read Investors Business Daily. Something there caught my eye.....after I read something on The Herald (UK). We'll get back to the IBD in a minute, but let's look what Dr Majid Katme had to say in The Herald about how loving and peaceful everyone is,
Muslim doctors, nurses and other health professionals have faithfully served the British public for many years. Surely it would be wrong to stigmatise all Muslim doctors in Britain because of the few accused.This is sad. There are many doctors who are Muslims, many of them refugees from Iran, who are great citizens, doctors and neighbors - but it isn't Islam that makes them this way. This doctor does them no justice.
Their commitment is illustrated in the oath taken by Muslim physicians, which is as follows:
Praise be to Allah (God), the Teacher, the Unique, Majesty of the heavens, the Exalted, the Glorious, Glory be to Him, the Eternal Being Who created the Universe and all the creatures within, and the only Being Who contained the infinity and the eternity. We serve no other god besides Thee and regard idolatry as an abominable injustice.
Give us the strength to be truthful, honest, modest, merciful and objective.
Give us the fortitude to admit our mistakes, to amend our ways and to forgive the wrongs of others.
Give us the wisdom to comfort and counsel all towards peace and harmony.
Give us the understanding that ours is a sacred profession that deals with your most precious gifts of life and intellect.
Therefore, make us worthy of this favoured station with honour, dignity and piety so that we may devote our lives to serving mankind, poor or rich, literate or illiterate, Muslim or non-Muslim, black or white, with patience and tolerance, with virtue and reverence, with knowledge and vigilance, with Thy love in our hearts and compassion for Thy servants, Thy most precious creation.
Hereby we take this oath in Thy name, the Creator of all the Heavens and the earth and follow Thy counsel as Thou has revealed to Prophet Muhammad.
The Koran, chapter 5, verse 32, reads: "Whoever kills a person (soul) . . . It is as if he killed all mankind, and whoever saves a life, it is as if he saved the life of all mankind . . ."
This medical oath, which is a composite from the historical and contemporary writings of physicians of the Islamic world, was officially adopted by the Islamic Medical Association of North America in 1977.
The cover-up always looks bad. Let's look back at the IBD - an editorial from 5 July, notice something?
"If anyone has killed one person -- except in lieu of murder or mischief on earth -- it is as if he has killed the whole of mankind. And if he has saved one life it is as if he saved the whole of mankind."Yep, Dr. Katme and IMANA edited their Koran. That is one heck of a caveat. IBD keeps going.
Muslim scholars define "mischief" as treason against Islam, which covers infidel occupation of Muslim lands. In other words, a Muslim doctor is not bound to save a life -- and may even be justified in taking a life -- if he perceives his potential patient base to be guilty of crimes against Allah.Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Pagan (as Hippocrates was), and Buddhist doctors all take the Hippocratic oath - why do the Muslims feel the need to have their own?
Or if he believes they share blame in the murder of fellow Muslims anywhere in the world.
(Orthodox Muslims are united in a kind of blood pact under the "ummah," the worldwide Muslim brotherhood. If an infidel hurts one Muslim, they believe it's like hurting all Muslims. Therefore, it's the duty of all Muslims to take an eye for an eye.)
Setting such a condition on treatment is unique among doctor's oaths. But then, many things are unique about Islam, most of all its militancy.
The London car-bomb case "should be the final proof that an idea that those involved in these type of attacks are all young, angry and poorly educated is a mistake," said British terror expert Paul Cornish. "They are often middle or upper class and well educated."
One of the suspects in the Mercedes Jihad, Dr. Mohammed Jamil Abdelqader Asha, is described as a "brilliant" neurologist.
He was arrested along with his wife, a medical assistant working in the same hospital. She also is described as "a very educated person."
The father of Dr. Asha, in denying that his son is a terrorist, said, "My son is a moderate Muslim" who "carried out his religious duties." Too well, it seems.
Hey, don't take my word or the IBD. Read it yourself.
[5:32] Because of this, we decreed for the Children of Israel that anyone who murders any person who had not committed murder or horrendous crimes, it shall be as if he murdered all the people. And anyone who spares a life, it shall be as if he spared the lives of all the people. Our messengers went to them with clear proofs and revelations, but most of them, after all this, are still transgressing.Like all good Evangelicals - I was warned early on to always read a complete Chapter and Verse someone quotes at you - and those 10 up and 10 down to make sure you get the full picture.
Boy, howdy! Do I now have the full picture!
[5:33] The just retribution for those who fight GOD and His messenger, and commit horrendous crimes, is to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or to be banished from the land. This is to humiliate them in this life, then they suffer a far worse retribution in the Hereafter.Over to you Doc - over to you.
