Peaceful Muslims Do Exist! (Ahmadi Muslims)
Your humble blogger knows that all Muslims are not evil, despite what one might conclude from the violent acts of Islamic Jihadists and Islamic apologists’ attempts to cover up the true nature of their brand of Islam. Thusly, when I come across mainstream reportage about a peaceful Muslim “sect”, it is my duty as a Counter Jihadist to share the good news. It is important to educate the uninitiated that not all Muslims are our enemy. The more we understand this simple point, the better we can concentrate on educating ourselves about violent Jihadists.
…Ahmadi Muslims, [are] a small sect of Islam with followers spread across the globe and concentrated in Pakistan, Southeast Asia and West Africa.
There are an estimated tens of millions of Ahmadi Muslims throughout the world—a minority within the global estimated 1.6 billion Muslims. In the U.S., Ahmadis number only about 25,000.
The catch: Most Muslims say Ahmadis are not Muslim.
The sect, founded in India more than 100 years ago, is viewed as heretical among much of the Muslim world because of a theological dispute that started with their founder, who claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus Christ, sent to reform the practice of Islam and press for nonviolence. That contradicts a central tenet of Islam that says Muhammad was the last prophet.
In speeches, sermons and interviews the khalifa [the “Muslim Pope”, 62-year-old Mirza Masoor Ahmed, the Ahmadi spiritual leader] has advocated for the separation of religion and government, and urged Muslims in the U.S. to “be loyal to this country.” (Block quote credit “Clamoring for the Khalifa- Thousands Gather East of Los Angeles to See the ‘Muslim Pope’ of Small Sect That Promotes Peace” Wall Street Journal 5/13/13)
A “heretical” Muslim leader preaching that American Muslims should be loyal to the United States! Listen gang, with so few in the Muslim community willing to speak publicly against Islamic Jihad and the multitude of Muslim Brotherhood organizations in our country, we must embrace those Muslims who swim against the Jihadist tide despite the risk to their own safety. I submit that the mere fact that “most Muslims say Ahmadis are not Muslim” makes these folks our friends. By “Grizzly Joe”
