I Saw a Term Today That I Had Not Seen For A While, So I Went To A Web Site And~

Did some additional reading on the matter so that I could share with you. The term is Wala Wal Bara...It is the arabic term for the relationship of arabs to each other and to infidels. "Love is the source of wala, and hate is the source of bara". "Wala inspires intimacy while bara invokes rejection." So the saying Wala wal bara, basically means keep your muslim brothers close, but do not befriend the infidel. The first web site led me to a very interesting web site that supports my above statement and much much more... http://www.islamicthinker.com/index.php?option=com_content&task_view&id=445&Itemid=74 I have been saying for a very long time that the muslims worship a different god than the other major "monotheistic" faiths. Their allah is the ancient pagan tribal moon god, not the Creator of Adam and Eve and the Torah. I believe this Quote below shows their true colors: "As for 'enmity for the sake of Allah', it includes the obligation to declare enmity for His sake: opposition for the sake of Allah. it is to declare opposition in deed, to take up arms against His enemies, to shun them, and to stay far from them both in word and deed. This proves that simple opposition of the spirit is not enough, and that it must be a complete honouring of your commitment, for Allah says: "There is a good example for you in Ibrahim and those with him, when they told their people: 'Surely we disassociate ourselves from you and all that you worship beside Allah. We have done with you. And there has arisen between us and you enmity and hate for ever until you believe in Allah only'." [60:4] (5)" Their allah is a different god... They are inventing a new world... Only their political system (sharia) is the right way to live... What say you?

"Al Wala Wal Bara" simply means love and hate for the sake of Allah.It means that you should chose your friends well.You should befriend Muslims in preference to non-Muslims,and good Muslims over hypocrites.It does not necessarily mean to hate everyone who does not who have the same religion as you,as what stated in this Quranic verse: Quran 60:8 Allah forbiddeth you not those who warred not against you on account of religion and drove you not out of your homes, that ye should show them kindness and deal justly with them.Allah loveth the just dealers.

Al-walaa means loyalty and al-baraa means disownment. In the context of Islam al-walaa is loyalty to Allah and whatever He is pleased with as well as friendship and closeness to the believers, whereas al-baraa is freeing oneself from that which is displeasing to Allah and disowning the disbelievers. it is not the Arabic term for the relationship of Arabs to each other and to infidels, it refers to the relationship of Muslims to each other and to infidels. I don't know why you (as a Jew) have a problem with such a term? Here are some of your holy book the Torah [Deuteronomy 12:1-3] (1) [i]These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. [/i] (2) [i]Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: [/i] (3) [i]And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. [/i] [Deuteronomy 7:1-6] (1) When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; (2) [i]And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: [/i] (3) Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. (4) [i]For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. [/i] (5) But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. (6) [i]For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. [/i] [Deuteronomy 14:21] Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk. [Deuteronomy 23:19-20] (19) [i]Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury: [/i] (20) Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. also the new testament contains a verse where the people of Israel are considered children while others are considered dogs!! [Matthew 15:22-26] (22) [i]And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. [/i] (23) [i]But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. [/i] (24) [i]But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. [/i] (25) [i]Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. [/i] (26) But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. now, tell me what is the problem you find in Al-walaa wa al-baraa?

I don't know much about this religion and also not much about Adam and Eve. I knew only this that Adam and Eve were the first humans on the earth according to the Christians I think. I am from different religion where there are a number of stories about our God. I do not have complaints with any religion because I never took time to study much about them but the last lines are somewhat odd. The line "Only our political system is the right way to live." is not a right line because politics does not run with the religions. It is the way of making other people fight in the name of the religion. Politics must run free from the grips of religion.

I do not know much about the Allah worshippers, but your research points out the hard facts that people must remember. It is the politicians who run around saying that Islam is a religion of peace. However, the Koran is quite open with animosity toward the infidels. Furthermore, if you pay attention to what goes on in the mid-east, there is a lot of hatred toward the infidels, even though they have given so much to the muslims. Seldom does a good Muslim express any issue with 911 terrorist attacks.
