Dutch Politician Repeats the Statements of the Ignorant Arabs

The politician wishes to draw the people's attention to the condition that Islam 'is the biggest danger threatening us'. According to his opinion, 'Everything we are proud of, we sell to the devil. Also, He has earlier already expressed his fear of a 'tsunami of "Islamification" in Holland'.

This is because Islam is the first wide-spread religion allover the world.

The Dutch politician said : 'Go along the street and look where it leads to. You feel you're no longer in your own country. A fight has started, and we must defend ourselves. Soon there are more mosques than churches!'

When I heard this news I laughed and said what a funny and unfortunate fact that the history of man returns itself back.

The statement of the Dutch politician reminds me with the statements of the Arabs before Islam.

Condition of the Arabs before Islam:

There was no education worthy of mention among the Arabs. Ignorance bred superstition, and they were given to all sorts of queer beliefs. They had faith in the existence of genii and evil spirits, whom they would conjure up in solitary places. The Arabs were ignorant of the very rudiments of social virtues. Their manner of life made the evolution of any social virtue impossible. Tribal feuds engaged their whole attention. A settled and peaceful mode of life, indispensable to the cultivation of social qualities, was unknown to them. The prospect of hostilities with another clan that might break out at any time was ever present before their minds. They used to bury their daughters alive to dispose the dishonor of the girls.

How did those Ignorant Arabs deal with the Quran?

17:41 We have explained (things) in various (ways) in this Qur-an, in order that they may receive admonition, but it only increases their flight (from the Truth)!

17:82 We send down (stage by stage) in the Qur-an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss.

17:89 And We have explained to man, in this Qur-an, every kind of similitude: yet the greater part of men refuse (to receive it) except with ingratitude!

10:15 But when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, say: "Bring us a Reading other than this, or change this," say: "It is not for me, of my own accord, to change it: I follow naught but what is revealed unto me: if I were to disobey my Lord, I should myself fear the Penalty of a Great Day (to come)."

41:26 The Unbelievers say; "Listen not to this Qur-an, but talk at random in the midst of its (reading), that ye may gain the upper hand!"

34:31 The Unbelievers say: "We shall neither believe in this scripture nor in (any) that (came) before it." Couldst thou but see when the wrong-doers will be made to stand before their Lord, throwing back the word (of blame) on one another! those who had been despised will say to the arrogant ones: "Had it not been for you, we should certainly have been believers!"

However, I do not blame the Dutch politician because he just expresses clearly what is inside his heart May be other politicians hide their exact feeling in order not to ruin the diplomatic and the commercial relations with the Arabs and Muslim countries?

But That Dutch politician and many of his alike give a good proof about the prophecy of the Quran which says"

3:118 …..They only desire your ruin: rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: what their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom.

3:186 …..and ye shall certainly hear much that will grieve you, from those who received the Book before you and from those who worship many gods. But if ye persevere patiently, and guard against evil, then that will be a determining factor in all affairs.

However, I am not sure what part of the holy book he wants to tear out?

May be this part?

11:4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: (11:4-6) These verses clearly show that the mass murder of innocent children by God (see 12:29-30) was premeditated.

11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

(Exodus 11)

Or may be this one?

12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

(Exodus 12)

I bet, it may be these parts?

6:24 And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.

(Joshua 6)

7:24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

7:25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

7:26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.

(Joshua 7)

3 So Joshua and the whole army moved out to attack Ai. He chose thirty thousand of his best fighting men and sent them out at night

4 with these orders: "Listen carefully. You are to set an ambush behind the city. Don't go very far from it. All of you be on the alert.

5 I and all those with me will advance on the city, and when the men come out against us, as they did before, we will flee from them.

6 They will pursue us until we have lured them away from the city, for they will say, 'They are running away from us as they did before.' So when we flee from them,

7 you are to rise up from ambush and take the city. The LORD your God will give it into your hand.

8 When you have taken the city, set it on fire. Do what the LORD has commanded. See to it; you have my orders."

18 Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Hold out toward Ai the javelin that is in your hand, for into your hand I will deliver the city." So Joshua held out his javelin toward Ai.

19 As soon as he did this, the men in the ambush rose quickly from their position and rushed forward. They entered the city and captured it and quickly set it on fire.

20 The men of Ai looked back and saw the smoke of the city rising against the sky, but they had no chance to escape in any direction, for the Israelites who had been fleeing toward the desert had turned back against their pursuers.

21 For when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city and that smoke was going up from the city, they turned around and attacked the men of Ai.

22 The men of the ambush also came out of the city against them, so that they were caught in the middle, with Israelites on both sides. Israel cut them down, leaving them neither survivors nor fugitives.

23 But they took the king of Ai alive and brought him to Joshua.

24 When Israel had finished killing all the men of Ai in the fields and in the desert where they had chased them, and when every one of them had been put to the sword, all the Israelites returned to Ai and killed those who were in it.

25 Twelve thousand men and women fell that day—all the people of Ai.

26 For Joshua did not draw back the hand that held out his javelin until he had destroyed [a] all who lived in Ai.

27 But Israel did carry off for themselves the livestock and plunder of this city, as the LORD had instructed Joshua.

28 So Joshua burned Ai and made it a permanent heap of ruins, a desolate place to this day.

29 He hung the king of Ai on a tree and left him there until evening. At sunset, Joshua ordered them to take his body from the tree and throw it down at the entrance of the city gate. And they raised a large pile of rocks over it, which remains to this day.

After Joshua kills all the inhabitants of Ai, burns their city, and hangs their king on a tree, he kills some animals and burns them as a "peace offering" to his warlike God.

30 Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the LORD, the God of Israel,

31 as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded the Israelites. He built it according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses—an altar of uncut stones, on which no iron tool had been used. On it they offered to the LORD burnt offerings and sacrificed fellowship offerings.

(Joshua 8 )

Or it may be this one :

28 That day Joshua took Makkedah. He put the city and its king to the sword and totally destroyed everyone in it. He left no survivors. And he did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho.

29 Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Makkedah to Libnah and attacked it. 30 The LORD also gave that city and its king into Israel's hand. The city and everyone in it Joshua put to the sword. He left no survivors there. And he did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.

31 Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Libnah to Lachish; he took up positions against it and attacked it. 32 The LORD handed Lachish over to Israel, and Joshua took it on the second day. The city and everyone in it he put to the sword, just as he had done to Libnah.

(Joshua 10)

But certainly he should tear out this part:

5 They go up the way to Luhith, weeping bitterly as they go; on the road down to Horonaim , anguished cries over the destruction are heard.

6 Flee! Run for your lives; become like a bush [e] in the desert.

7 Since you trust in your deeds and riches, you too will be taken captive, and Chemosh will go into exile, together with his priests and officials.

8 The destroyer will come against every town, and not a town will escape.

The valley will be ruined , and the plateau destroyed, because the LORD has spoken.

9 Put salt on Moab, for she will be laid waste , her towns will become desolate, with no one to live in them.

10 "A curse on him who is lax in doing the LORD's work!

A curse on him who keeps his sword from bloodshed!

(Jeremiah 48)

Indeed, I may advice him to tear out the verse which says:

"Cursed by he that keepeth back his sword from blood."

Nevertheless, I may remind him with the Golden teachings of the Great Prophet Jesus who was talking about "Judging the others" and said:

1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged.

2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?

5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. (Matthew 7)

Is not amazing that an intellectual man living in the 21st century still recalling what the Ignorant Arabs used to say more than 1400 years ago?

Cast Iron Cookware Maintenance   by Richard Murray

Cast iron cookware has been with us for hundreds of years and with good reason; it work extremely well, it is inexpensive and once seasoned, it requires very little maintenance. Millions of cooks, whether amateurs or professional; prefer to use cast iron as their cooking tools of preference. You would be hard pressed to find a modern kitchen without at least one cast iron skillet or Dutch oven in their cupboard.

If you love to cook, you definitely need the right tools to be successful and cookware should be categorized as tools. Just as a carpenter needs a hammer and saw, the cook needs the best cookware to achieve great cuisine. Properly cared for cast iron cookware will last for years, as a matter of interest, some people haunt yard sales and antique shops searching for old unusual pieces to restore and cook on once again.

A cast iron utensil needs to be seasoned before it is fit to use. The metal must be coated with a thin layer of protection to prevent food sticking, to eliminate the metallic taste of the raw cast iron and to stop the formation of rust. Most manufacturers tell you to wash the new skillet or pan by hand using hot water and a good brand of dish washing detergent. NEVER put a cast iron utensil in the dishwasher! After washing, rinse and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. I place mine on the stove and heat just enough to drive off all the moisture.

Now is the time to ignore the manufacturer's instructions. Apply a thin coating of grease such as bacon fat or lard. Vegetable oils work but do leave a sticky surface. Some people will recommend food safe mineral oil which should not get tacky; the choice is up to the user. Heat the oven to 450 or 500 degrees and place the pan in the oven upside down over a cookie sheet or some aluminum foil to catch any drips. Bake the pan for at least 1 to 2 hours and let cool. The reason for a higher temperature than what the manufacture recommends is to create a film of carbon on the surface of the pan.
Remember to turn the kitchen exhaust fan on in case it starts to smoke.

To care for the pans, try to clean when the pan is still fairly hot, Rinse with very hot water from the faucet and scrub with a stiff natural bristled brush. A nylon or plastic bristle brush may melt. Never rinse a red hot cast iron skillet with cold water, it may crack on you. I know because this happened to my favorite griddle.

Hints....

Never cook at a higher heat than necessary.

Don't use a brand new stainless or copper scrubber or a SOS pad; it will scrape the seasoning off.

If it becomes necessary to wash your cast iron, be brave and do it. Modern dish detergents are primarily wetting agents which when used with a stiff brush will remove the left on grunge, but not the coating. Be sure not to soak the utensil in soapy water. When you are finished, put a few drops of oil on a paper towel and wipe until dry.

Do not store with the lids on, condensation can form cause rusting. If rust occurs, reseasoning is the only cure.

The more you use your cast iron utensils, the better they will get. The thin layer of carbon you have created will become just like Teflon or Silverstone and require very little oil for cooking.
