By Land, By Sea, By Air: Prehistoric Migration Troubles

By Land, By Sea, By Air: Prehistoric Migration Troubles

Author’s Notice: The situations inside are those people of a timeframe from about 13,000 to 200,000 several years prior to the present, and therefore way prior to the era of agricultural settlements. We are dealing with our nomadic hunter-gatherer ancestors right here. Crucial dates are: African origin of present day human beings, Homo sapiens, at about 200,000 several years in the past an Out-of-Africa migration started off about 70,000 several years in the past our world wide colonization (other than for Antarctica and Oceania) was finished by 13,000 several years in the past.

When it arrives to human beings, right here defined as Homo some thing or other, not necessarily just Homo sapiens, colonizing the world from Ground Zero, which is Africa, nicely numerous problems arise.

People (as in Homo sapiens) originated in Africa and some finally did, little by little, at any time so little by little, migrate Out-of-Africa (not that they actually had been conscious of this), sooner or later spreading out and colonizing the world (apart from Antarctica and Oceania east of Australia and west of South The united states) by at the very least 13,000 several years in the past. Precisely how is not absolutely understood, the very least of all by me. The central, but not exceptional, problem I have is with regard to our ways and implies of investing in becoming exclusively nomadic land-lubbers for obtaining innovative maritime skills as nicely skills needed if our world wide colonization circumstance is to be thought.

Trouble A person: Boats Demanded but No Present-Boats Uncovered

When it arrives to human migrations, there are sure lands that have been colonized by both of those Homo sapiens and Homo erectus that included crossing moderately vast expanses of ocean – vast at the very least for those people cultures that existed more than 60,000 several years in the past, when, for instance, Australia was colonized by what is actually currently identified as the Australian Aborigine. Even earlier, Homo erectus island-hopped the numerous Indonesian islands as attested to by fossil evidence. In both of those circumstances, these ancient cultures experienced to have acquired somewhat extensive boat-making, sailing and navigation capabilities that would allow a huge ample inhabitants to cross more than the ocean waters, given that even in the course of Ice Age circumstances, these Indonesian islands, and Australia, had been continue to isolated by oceans.

Sailing the oceans blue: which is a rather large talk to for primitive human beings all those people tens on tens of thousands of several years in the past. But, there is a further way of crossing the ocean blue – we do it all the time currently. We will not sail, we fly. Perhaps our ancient ancestors had been flown to Australia and the Indonesian isles! Due to the fact aerial technological know-how is even additional outlandish than maritime technological know-how, nicely, maybe the aerial technological know-how belonged to highly developed beings – ancient aliens or ancient astronauts. A person other observation in favour – there are fossil finds of this or that hominid species at A, B & C. Alas, geographical details A, B, & C are divided by thousands on thousands of miles. No fossils are located at any details in-involving A & B, or B & C. An obvious explanation, they didn’t migrate involving A & B and B & C at numerous tens of kilometres per technology they had been flown from A to B to C, therefore conveying the lack of fossils in-involving – but additional about that soon.

Quicker or later in your nomadic hunter-gatherer wanderings you might be likely to intersect the seashore! Rivers and streams you can wade throughout or swim throughout, possibly use a buoyant log to hold on to if require be. Lakes can be walked close to. But the ocean!!! The oceans offshore must have been terrifying to our quite ancient ancestors, and rightly so. The ocean is practically nothing if not unpredictable and harmful: from massive waves, gales, riptides, robust currents, razor-sharp rocks and shoals, sharks, jellyfish, hypothermia, and just all kinds of unknowns lurking beneath the surface area to incorporate to your terrors. The tides must have seemed to be a purely supernatural manifestation, devoid of all-natural explanation, an unexplainable motion of the gods by some means declaring “this is our domain, keep away”.

Would you somewhat be high and dry 10 miles inland or 10 miles out to sea making an attempt to keep your head above water and not ending up as fish-meals? It requires way significantly less exertion sit on the seaside than to swim or sail in or on the ocean, and it’s a whole lot safer too!

More, in most circumstances with no other land in sight, you haven’t a clue what is actually on the other side of the ocean, if nearly anything (possibly it goes on eternally and eternally), or how much throughout it is to the other side, and in any celebration you and your band of nomad hunter-gatherers have additional pressing desires, like acquiring present day meals and tonight’s shelter. The coastlines and seashores provides an abundance of meals stuffs and means: shellfish, crabs, turtles, seals, seabirds, fish, even seaweed (dried for gas). Coastlines and seashores are excellent.

Are you really likely to stop, make a raft and go sailing out into the pure unfamiliar out of pure curiosity, though curiosity you in all probability have? No, in the day-to-day hunt for survival you are going to in all probability overlook the ocean and just adhere to the shoreline – which sooner or later will deliver you to most sites. If you arrive to an impassable barrier, it’s in all probability less difficult and much safer to trek inland for awhile than divert means to swimming or rafting close to the barrier with all the dangers that could entail. In any celebration, it’s not all that east building and sailing and navigating a seaworthy boat or raft from scratch devoid of any handy-dandy how-to handbook obtainable. More, you are not able to drink the seawater so freshwater would have to be carried on any hypothetical voyage. Do you have leak-evidence containers? If so, how significantly do you require to get? Who knows?

There are 4 probable or real looking routes out of Africa. Even in the course of the Ice Ages when sea amounts had been reduced, three involve an ocean crossing, which, I recommend our ancient ancestors would stay away from. I assume it is much less difficult, and safer, to just adhere to the shoreline, so I choose for the sole land route, up the west coastline of the Pink Sea and on up possibly into the Levant, or again down the east coastline of the Pink Sea and on into Arabia. You can adhere to the African shoreline ‘Out of Africa’ and sooner or later reach China, but not Australia, or Japan, or tons of S.E. Asian islands, the Channel Islands (off Southern California), Sri Lanka, and so forth. Yet you discover ancient human and human artefact remains in these sites, so our migrating nomadic ancestors of course did establish boats or rafts and sail the ocean blue and fulfill that curiosity, but the real why is unexplained – curiosity is not motive ample to put yourself in harms way. The fly in the ointment, in any celebration, and alas and alack, there are no boats or rafts to be located, precise remains or pictorial representations, in the prehistoric archaeological report. Boats and rafts are all possible boats and rafts boats and rafts are assumed but nor tested by any precise evidence. It truly is a kind of’Catch-22′. Boats and rafts must be, yet we are not able to discover them!

It must be said that simply because of the Ice Ages, ancient coastlines then are now underwater and presumably related telltale archaeology (as in remains of boats) is consequently also underwater. Even so, the problem remains that I discover it tough to imagine our ancient ancestors would have been brave ample to stick their toes in the oceans devoid of a damn excellent reason, yet, there had been sites colonized by early male that even at the top of the Ice Ages there existed no land bridges for them to cross more than, say to Australia, New Zealand, Oceania, Japan, tons of S.E. Asian islands, and presumably tons of other islands, huge and tiny. Conclusion: Which is a large anomaly that desires a resolution.

Trouble Two: Paradise Dropped

Crossing the oceans blue is just the start off of anomalous migration difficulties. If dollars, language boundaries, cultural variances, political units, passports and visas, and so forth. had been of no issue and you could travel to and are living anywhere you wished, the place would it be? Nicely, in all probability somewhere not too scorching, not too cold, not too damp, nor too dry, a place the place there are considerable all-natural means of meals, new water, wood, stone, and in all probability some kind of ascetically pleasing surroundings, and so forth. With the exception of the surroundings, all those people other geographical and climatic things would be even additional pressing for our ancient ancestors with no access to supermarkets, components retailers, air conditioning, central heating and tap water on desire. So the concern occurs, supplied a lack of inhabitants tension way again when, a lack of tension not driving migration away from paradise and toward hell, why did some of our ancient ancestors adopt a nomadic life style in what we’d contemplate serious environments, like arid locations, the tundra, and so forth.? 

Unlike present day travellers, when our quite distant ancestors roamed the plains of Africa, their nomadic wanderings or migrations had been not geography directed. In an era the place there was no radio and Tv set, newspapers and journals, GPS and the Internet, encyclopaedias and travel agents, there was no know-how of what was more than the hill, beyond the horizon. Food stuff availability directed your travels and migrations. You exhausted a person patch of turf – you moved on to the subsequent, and the subsequent, and the subsequent in a kind of random drunkards walk. Logic dictates that even so you didn’t wander out of paradise or a reason facsimile thereof. But sooner or later, like a drop of ink diffusing via a glass of water, the relaxation of the world, paradise, hell and details in-involving, bought invaded by our African out-of-towners – an invasive pest species that was to deliver full loss of life and destruction in their wake, but which is a further tale. In any case, why we colonized incredibly hostile environments when additional pleasurable solutions had been obtainable desires a resolution.

Trouble A few: Hook up the Dots

There are two primary kinds of clues that expose our most likely migration patterns. To begin with, there are those people archaeological websites and from those people skilled professions can ordinarily deduce what hominid species was present and from a variety of relationship procedures, when. The dilemma is that this kind of websites are all too couple of and much involving. So, possibly you have an Australian Aboriginal website close to the Perth area (S.W. coastline) dated to say 30,000 several years in the past. Then say you have a further website close to the Sydney area (S.E.Coastline) dated to 20,000 several years in the past. So the conclusion is that some Aborigines migrated from Perth to Sydney more than the 10,000 yr interval. But there is no websites in-involving, so you will not really know if they migrated in a straight line involving the two locations or was it all just a full zigzag. Perhaps neither if there is yet an undiscovered third website, say in Darwin (mid-North Coastline) from 40,000 several years in the past, and some Darwin Aborigines followed the west coastline route to Perth taking 10,000 several years and some others the east coastline trek to Sydney taking a span of 20,000 several years. You can just about link the dots anyway you damn nicely make sure you if it provides evidence to your pet principle.

The next line of evidence is working with mitochondrial DNA located in present day human beings to try out and perform again migration routes. For instance, if mitochondrial DNA in present day Australian Aborigines has a closer mitochondrial DNA match to present day Indonesians than to present day Fijians, then a person might conclude that the Aborigines migrated to Australia from Indonesia and not from Fiji. I individually will not like this kind of genetic evidence. To begin with, DNA mutates more than time. Evolution would be screwed if it didn’t. Secondly, there is been an awful whole lot of comings and goings given that these preliminary Out-of-Africa migrations commenced. Thirdly, there is been an awful whole lot of breeding involving the races so that by now rarely anyone is ‘pure’ nearly anything. Nevertheless, the professionals put a whole lot of faith in the testing, so who am I to dispute their ways and implies?

So, how do you get from Place A to Place B tens of thousands of several years in the past when Factors A and B are divided by vast ocean distances? Why do you go from Place A to Place B when Place B is comparatively undesirable? How in fact do we really know that Factors A and B are the be-all-and-end-all of start off and finish?

Let us say Place A is beautiful Hawaii, and Place B is the vast arid desert of outback Central Australia. How do you get from A to B? You are not able to walk and adhere to the shoreline. You are not able to travel or ride a horse. You could establish a boat and sail but which is a hell of a leap of courage you have bought to learn, and in any celebration you haven’t any idea what route to head in or that Australia even exists. And even if you did, why would you want to depart Hawaii (Web site A) for the Australian Outback and if you did reach the Outback (Web site B) why wouldn’t you transform appropriate close to and head again to Hawaii once more?

Nicely, you could be flown non-stop from Hawaii to Central Australia. We crossed more than ocean boundaries simply because we had been airlifted more than them. You could be flown to Central Australia and stranded there. For the same reason, we didn’t voluntarily adopt the tundra as household – it was pressured on us as an adapt do-or-die experiment. Flight would also describe the lack of related archaeological websites involving A and B. If our ancient ancestors nomadically walked thousands of miles involving Place A and Place B, you’d anticipate archaeological evidence to be located together the assumed link-the-dots route. But if you fly, or are flown, then of course you wouldn’t discover any in-involving websites made up of any related archaeological evidence.


Appropriate about now each individual physical anthropologist examining this is sticking quite very long and quite sharp pins in J.P. voodoo dolls and contacting me all kinds of unprintable names. Of course our ancient ancestors didn’t have the technological know-how at hand to fly, so of course no flying equipment have been located in the prehistoric archaeological report possibly. My obvious suggestion right here is that ancient astronauts, the ‘gods’ of outdated (and there is some evidence that even 30,000-50,000 several years in the past our ancient ancestors experienced grasped the concept of the supernatural and of supernatural entities), genetically engineered all of the a variety of Homo some thing or other from earlier hominids which in transform had been artificially picked and bred from African primates, like the chimpanzee. We collectively, Homo some thing or other, had been genetically engineered and supplied all those people anomalous qualities connected with Homo some thing or other, like a super-high IQ, bipedal gait, racial facial and unique facial uniqueness.

From their central African laboratory, Homo some thing or other was then dispersed more than thousands of several years as distinct and unique experiments in colonization. We had been transported right here and there, remaining to our own gadgets to endure or not – sink or swim.  In most circumstances it was sink and extinction. But, now and once more, it was survival – we floated and we swam. In the long run just about all of the Homo some thing or other went kaput, but Homo sapiens realized a good result. We had been that sturdy species (us – present day human beings) the end product or service of all of the engineering and colonization experimentation. At that stage, we had been supplied or taught the items of civilization, specially agriculture about 10,000 several years in the past then remaining petty significantly alone and to our own gadgets, with only at-a-length surveillance – present day UFOs – though some experimentation carries on – alien abductions.

There are, IMHO, a couple of other anomalies supporting this wacky idea.

A person other anomaly, if we are so crash-scorching excellent to colonise the world (apart from Antarctica and Oceania) and cross some ocean boundaries to get to some elements, that’s why finishing the position in the Americas by 13,000 several years in the past, possibly even way earlier, why didn’t we colonize the Pacific Islands, Oceania east of Australia and west of South The united states, till really pretty a short while ago – starting off only some about 4000 several years prior to the present, ending off with New Zealand (other than for Antarctica), very last cab off the rank way following the start off of the Common Era, or A.D. to some. Australia was very first populated 50,000 to 60,000 several years in the past, and New Zealand is just throughout the road and more than the hill, at the very least in contrast to the length again to our African stage of origin. Dependent on source, it took but 10,000 to 20,000 several years to get from Africa to Australia, yet some 70,000 several years to get from Africa to New Zealand. Something’s screwy somewhere, but that reinforces the idea that ocean voyages are a comparatively latest potential of ours, and consequently, way again when, we didn’t sail cross the oceans blue to Australia, Japan, Sri Lanka, and so forth. but had been taken there.

Yet another evident anomaly – while it requires but about 60,000 several years to colonize the world at the time we’re Out-of-Africa (other than Antarctica and Oceania), it took about 130,000 several years just to get Out-of-Africa, as if some thing or anyone was blocking our route till they had been excellent and ready to release us into the world wide wild!

Now reports of aerial equipment, flight technologies, are not unfamiliar in the archaeological and/or historical report, albeit not prehistorically much again, somewhat in the era of recorded ancient historical past, say the very last 10,000 several years or so. From the ‘Star’ of Bethlehem, to the Wheel of Ezekiel, to the ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ that Joshua stood continue to (Biblical Mythology) to Vimanas which are Hindu mythological flying equipment (mythical self-relocating aerial cars, a flying chariot of the gods) as linked in a variety of Sanskrit epics to ‘airplane’ products uncovered in both of those ancient Egypt (dated to about 200 BCE) and minor gold design ‘airplanes’ from Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican and South American locations, relationship from about 500 to 800 CE. Scaled-up replicas of these American and Egyptian ‘aircraft’ have located them to be aerodynamically flight deserving. There are also no shortages of artwork works from antiquity that at confront value surface to present what currently would be called Traveling Saucers, or Daylight Discs, or just plain Unknown Traveling Objects. Eventually, aerial ‘chariots’ and incredibly huge ‘birds’ that ferry the ‘gods’ close to are additional the norm than not in several mythologies.

Abrogation in Islam

Abrogation in Islam


The acts of pre-meditated massacres committed by Muslim extremists against Christians in the Muslim world, has become a phenomenon that needs to be addressed by the United Nations and the Arab League as well as the United States, Europe, and other nations.

We have seen the massacre of Christian worshippers by Muslim extremists in late October of 2010 in the church of Our Lady of Salvation in Baghdad. In the New Year, the world witnessed another massacre against Christians in the Church of the Saints in Alexandria, Egypt, committed by Muslim extremists.

In March 2010, Muslim men from the Fulani tribe in Nigeria, armed with swords and machetes, arrived at the Christian villages in the early hours of the morning killing several hundred of Christians.

There are 35-40 million Christians living in countries whose majority are Muslims. Some 15 million live in Indonesia; 12 million live in Egypt; 3 million in Pakistan; less than one million in Iraq and 2 percent in Jerusalem. In Turkey, the Christian population numbers around 1% of the total population of 75 million. In Syria, Christians count for less than 10 percent of the population. In Lebanon the number went down from about 55 percent 75 years ago to under 30 percent today. At present rate in the Middle East, the Christians will, in a decade, have been substantially reduced to the point that they will loose their cultural vitality and political significance. The exodus is a result of the unprecedented persecution of Christians by Muslim extremists as we have seen in the last few months.

Islamic Invasion of the Middle East in the 7th Century

On the eve of Islamic invasion of the Middle East in the seventh century, more than 95 percent of the population, not including Persia, was Christians. The rest were Jews, pagans and others. Back then, the Muslim attitude toward the People of the Book, as Christians and Jews are called in the Quran, does not entail any obligation on the part of the Muslims either to convert or to exterminate them.

Following the death of the Prophet of Islam in 632, the second successor, Calipha ‘Umar, had a covenant with the Christian majority of the Middle East; it is known as the Covenant of ‘Umar. The Covenant was in the form of a letter presented by the Christian community; it reads the following: “When you (i.e. ‘Umar) came to us, we asked you for safety for our lives, our families, our property, and the people of our religion on the conditions: to pay tribute out of hand and be humiliated; not to hinder any Muslim from stopping in our churches by night or day, to entertain him there three days and give him food there and open to him their doors; to beat the ‘naqus’ (the wooden board which serves as ‘bell’ amongst the Eastern Christians) only gently.…and not to raise our voices in them in chanting;. . . .not to build a church, convent, or hermitage, or cell, nor repair those that are dilapidated; nor assemble in any that is in a Muslim quarter, nor in their presence; not to display idolatry, nor invite to it, nor show a cross on our churches, nor in any of the roads or markets of the Muslims; not to learn the Quran nor teach it to our children, nor to prevent any of our relatives from turning Muslims if he wishes it;. . . .Not to resemble the Muslims in dress, appearance, saddles . . .; to honor and respect them, to stand up for them when we meet together;… not to make our houses higher (than the Muslim houses); not to tip weapons or swords, nor wear them in a town or on a journey in Muslim lands;. . .not to strike a Muslim; not to keep slaves who have been the property of Muslims. We impose these terms on ourselves and on our co-religionists; he who rejects them, has no protections.” (A.S. Tritto, The Caliphs and Their Non-Muslim Subjects, London, 1930).

Favorable Verses to Christians and Jews in the Quran

Many Muslim commentators tell half-baked explanations, often appeasing the Western audience, claim that Islam is a ‘peaceful religion’ or ‘tolerant religion’. These terms are used to show that Islam and Christianity can ‘co-exist’ in harmony. Muslim writers quote the Quran to present the religion as ‘peaceful’. They present verses from the Quran showing the peaceful, respectful and tolerant nature of the Quran; one verse reads: “You have your religion and I have mine” Quran 109:6, and “There is no compulsion in religion” (Quran 2:256).

Indeed, when you read the Quran, you come across verses that are tolerant to non-Muslims. One verse says: “If thy Lord had pleased, all those who are in the earth would have believed, all of them. Will thou then force them till they are believers?” (Quran 10:99). Another verse reads: “May thou will kill thyself with grief, sorrowing after, if they believe not in this argument (non-believers)” (Quran 18:6).

Some Muslim commentators defend the notion that Islam can ‘co-exist’ with other religions; they refer to a statement made by Ibn Ishaq, the biographer of Muhammad, who in the 8th century, stated that “The Negus of Abyssinia had given refuge to Muslim migrants to Ethiopia before they migrated to Medina.” The biographer stated that “a Christian delegation from Najran (Yemen) met the Prophet inside the mosque at Medina and the Prophet treated them with respect and in friendly way. All these events, Muslim spokesmen say, show signs of tolerance in Islam.

Another verse says: “Those who believe (in the Quran) and those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures) and the Sabian (another sect lived in Arabia before Islam), any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord: on then shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” (Quran 2:62).

One verse refers to Christian priests and monks as humble and engage in worshipping God: “…Wilt thou find those who say, we are Christians; because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant” (Quran 5:8).  

Muslim commentators state that the Quran treats all human beings on equal plain, whatever their creed or color or nation or tribe. They refer to the following verse: “And surely we have honored the children of Adam, and we carry them in the land and the sea, and we provide them with good tiding, and we have made to excel highly most of those whom we have created.” (Quran 17:70).

One verse exhorts the believers (Muslims) to uphold justice and treat non-Muslims generously: “Exempted are those who join people with whom you have signed a peace treaty, and those who come to you wishing not to fight you, nor fight their relatives. Had Allah willed, he could have permitted them to fight you. Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then Allah gives you no excuse to fight them” (Quran 4:90).

Another verse reads: “For every one of you we appointed a law and a way. And if Allah had pleased he would have made you a single people, but that he might try you in what He gave you. So vie one with another in virtuous deeds” (Quran 2:148).  

Muslim commentators state that Allah did not create all human beings as one community, but rather different sects, distinctively. They state that plurality of religions and ways of life and different laws co-exist peacefully with the Muslim community.

Anti Christian Sentiments in the Quran

But the same Quran calls Christians ‘Dhimmi’, an Aramaic word [DMM] means ‘the insulted ones’, who must pay “jizya” (a head tax for protection) and be humiliated (Quran 9: 29).

The Quran calls its followers to smite the necks of the unbelievers (non-Muslims): “When you meet those who disbelieve, smite at their necks until when you have killed and wounded many of them, then take them as captives, (Quran 47:4).

The Quran calls its followers to smite the unbelievers (non-Muslims) above their necks and smite their fingers; it reads: “Remember thy lord has inspired the angels with the message. Give firmness to the believers and instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers (non-Muslims). Smite them above their necks and smite the fingertips of them.” (Quran 8: 12).

The Quran commands the believers (i.e. Muslims) to wage Jihad (holy war) on non-Muslims, it reads: “Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows you don’t” (Quran 2:216).

The Quran says: “The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger (non-Muslims) and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hand and feet at alternate side cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom. . .” (Quran 5:33-34).

The Quran says: “These twains (the believers, i.e. Muslims and the disbelievers, i.e. non-Muslims) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve (non-Muslims), garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down their heads. Whereby that which is in their bellies and their skins too, will be melted; and for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning” (Quran 22:19-22).

The Quran says: “Lo! We have prepared for disbelievers (non-Muslims) chains, yokes and a blazing fire” (Quran 76:4).

The Quran says: “Therefore, when you meet the unbelievers (non-Muslims, in fight), smite them at their necks. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them)” (Quran 47:4-6, 15).

The Quran says: “Verily Allah has cursed the unbelievers (non-Muslims) and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior. That day their faces will be turned upside down in the fire; they will say: Woe to us! We should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger! (i.e. Muhammad), our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a very great curse!” (Quran 33:64)

In another verse the Quran says: “Truly Allah loves those who fight in His cause in battle, as if they were a solid cement structure . . . that you believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad), and that you strive in the cause of Allah, with your property and persons. That will be best for you, if you but knew! He (Allah) will forgive you your sins, and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in gardens of eternity. That is indeed the supreme achievement. And another (favor will He bestow), which you do love – help from Allah and a speedy victory. So give the glad tidings to the believers (Muslims)” (Quran 61:4, 11-13).

The Quran calls Muslims not to befriend Christians and Jews; the verse reads: “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors; they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them [for friendship] is of them. Verily Allah guides not a people unjust” (Quran 5: 51).

The Quran commands Muslims to fight a jihad against non-Muslims, it reads: “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fights in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We [Allah] shall bestow a vast reward” (Quran 4:74).

The Quran calls Muslims to kill the “mushrikeen” (those who associate gods with God, such as Hindus and Christians); it reads: “Seize them and slay them wherever you find them; and take no friends or helpers from their ranks” (4: 89).

The Quran calls the Jews “apes” (2: 62-65); and calls the Christians “swine” (Quran 5:59-60). The disbelievers (non-Muslims) are a folk without intelligence, (Quran 8: 65).

The Quran reads: “Say, Shall I tell you who, in the sight of Allah, deserves a yet worse retribution than these? They whom Allah has rejected and whom He has condemned, and whom He has turned into apes and swine (Jews and Christians) because they worshipped the powers of evil…” (Quran 5:60).

“And then, when they (the Jews) disdainfully persisted in doing what they had been forbidden to do, We [Allah] said unto them: Be ye apes. Despised and rejected.” Quran 7:166, Yusuf Ali translation).

“And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: Be ye apes, despised and rejected” (Quran 2:65, Yusuf Ali translation).

The Doctrine of Abrogation in Islam

Faced with these contradictory verses from the Quran, and instead of explaining these contradictions, Muslim theologian started looking into another mechanism to solve these contradictions. They adopted a doctrine known as “the doctrine of abrogation”, a legal method that allows annulment of seemingly contradictory verses from the Quran, without deleting them from the text.

When speaking in the West, Muslim commentators, deliberately hide this major Islamic doctrine, called in Arabic “Al-Nasikh wal-Mansoukh” (the abrogator and the abrogated). The Arabic etymology of the word is “naskh” means a legal method that allows annulment of certain verses from the Quran.

Abrogation is an integral part of Islamic Shari’a and is mentioned in the Quran. It simply means that in situations wherein verses conflict one another, the early verses are overridden by the latter verses. This means the abrogated verses remain part of the Quran, but are cancelled out by other verses; both, the abrogated verses and the abrogating verses are retained in the Quran. In Arabic the term used is: al-Nasikh wal Mansukh.

The concept of “abrogation” is stated in the Quran, it means that Allah chose to reveal verses that supersede earlier verses in the same Quran. The central Quranic verse that deals with abrogation is the following:

“None of Our revelations (verses) do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar; knowest thou not that Allah hath power over all things? (Quran 2:106, Yusuf Ali translation). This means that when Allah decides to abrogate a verse from the Quran, He simply replaces the abrogated verse by a new and better one.

Since its inception, abrogation has been a central element in the Islamic religion. The Quran asserts the doctrine of abrogation in the following verses: “God abrogates or confirms whatsoever he will, for he has with him the Book of the Books (the Quran)” (Quran 13:39). The Quran further states that “If we [Allah] please, we could take away what We have revealed to you. . .” (Quran 17:86).

Apparently, Muslim theologians were unable to explain away the inconsistencies in passages from the Quran. Some believe that the language of the Quran is Aramaic, not Arabic. The earliest copies of the Quran were written, not in the modern Arabic script as most of the Arab speaking people believe, but were written in a script borrowed from the Aramaic script, and a language closely related to Eastern Syriac, the original language of Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and parts of Egypt.  This means that the alleged contradictions, claimed by Muslim interpreters of the Quran, may not, after all, be contradictions, if these verses were interpreted in Aramaic rather than Arabic. (For more on this subject, see The Qur’an: Misinterpreted, Mistranslated and Misread. The Aramaic Language of the Qur’an by Gabriel Sawma, available on

Aramaic, not Arabic, was the language of the inhabitants of the Middle East in the seventh century. Even the Arab kingdoms of Palmyra in northeast Damascus, and the Nabataean kingdom of Transjordan had all their literature and epigraphic material written in Aramaic and Greek; not a single inscription of those Arab kingdoms was written in Arabic. The classical Arabic language of the modern Quran did not exist in the seventh century. 

But Muslim theologians consider the verses revealed to Muhammad in Medina contradict those verses revealed in Mecca and as a result, they established the doctrine of abrogation, whereby those verses revealed in Medina, would abrogate those revealed earlier in Mecca.

Nevertheless, Muslim jurists insist that the language of the Quran is Arabic and that the Arabic interpretation of the Quran renders these differences, and consequently, they use the doctrine of abrogation to take away divine verses revealed to the Prophet of Islam during his missionary. Abrogation allows the verses, which came late, to annul earlier verses. (John Burton, The Encyclopedia of Islam, vol. 7, s.v. “Naskh,” p.1010.)

In addition to the Quran, the Hadith (sayings attributed to the Prophet) confirms the use of the doctrine of abrogation in early Islam. We see this doctrine being applied during the time of the third successor of the Prophet of Islam, ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan. The doctrine is recorded in the second divine book in Sunni Islam, Sahih al-Bukhari, written more than two hundred years after the death of the Prophet,  reads the following: “I said to ‘Uthman bin ‘Affan (while he was collecting the Qur’an) regarding the verse:–Those of you who die and leave wives…” (Quran 2:240) “This verse was abrogated by another verse. So why should you write it? (Leave it in the Qur’an)? ‘Uthman said: “O son of my brother! I will not shift anything of it from its place.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, vol. 6, book 60, number 53.  

Abrogation is shown in the most important and reliable source of Islam, second only to the Quran, Sahih al-Bukhari (846AD); it reads:  “They had a choice, either fast or feed a poor for every day… and added, “This verse is abrogated.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, vol. 6, book 60, number 33. See Abrogation)

Abrogation is attested in another important and reliable source of Islam, Sahih Muslim; it reads: “The Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) abrogated some of his commands by others, just as the Qur’an abrogates some part with the other.” (Hadith, Sahih Muslim, Book 3, number 0675). See also, Muhammad Abu-al-Hussain Muslim bin al-Hahhah al-Nissapuri, Sahih Muslim, International Islamic Publishing House, 1971, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, book 003, no. 0675.

More testaments to the existence of the doctrine in early Islam is attested by Sahih Muslim; it reads: “…I recited to him this verse of Sura al-Furqan…And those who call not upon another god with Allah and slay not the soul which Allah has forbidden except in the cause of justice…He said: This is a Meccan verse (i.e.verse came to Muhammad in Mecca) which has been abrogated by a verse revealed at Medina…” (Hadith, Sahih Muslim, book 43, number 7173).

Another Hadith book in early Islam, the Muwatta, confirms the use of the doctrine of abrogation in early Islam; it reads: “Yahya related to me from Malik from Abdullah ibn Hazm from Amra bint Abd al Rahman that A’isha, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Amongst what was sent down of the Qur’an …—then it was abrogated by…” (Hadith al-Muwatta, book 30, number 3.17b).

The doctrine of abrogation was taught for the judges in early Islam. This is attested by ‘Ali ibn Abi Taleb, son-in-law of the Prophet of Islam and cousin, who later declared himself the fourth successor of the Prophet. ‘Ali talked about the doctrine of abrogation as a precondition for qualifying an individual to be an Islamic judge, (He said to ‘Abdul Rahman, can you differentiate between abrogating and abrogated verses? ‘Abdul Rahman said, “no.” Thereupon ‘Ali said “You are damned and cause others to be damned.” (Annashikh wal-Mansukh by Abul Qasim, published by Hindia Press, Cairo, p. 6. A similar saying is found in Al-Nasikh wal Mansukh by Abu Ja’far al-Nahhas, Beirut, 2003, p. 9).

One saying attributed to the Prophet in particular addresses abrogation; it cites Abu al-A’la bin al-Shikhkhir, considered by Muslim theologian to be a reliable source of knowledge about the Prophet’s life, as saying, that “The Messenger (Muhammad) of Allah abrogated some of his commands by others, just as the Quran abrogates some part of it with the other.” The Prophet of Islam accepted that Allah would invalidate previous revelations, often making ordinances stricter. (Anwar al-Tanzil wa-Asrar al-Ta’wil by ‘Abdallah Ibn ‘Umar al-Baydawi, published by Dar al-Tiba’ah, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 1997, pp.116-7).

In his book, Tafsir: The Commentary on the Qur’an, Abu Ja’far al-Tabari (d.923) a distinguished  authority on Islamic history and one of the early interpreters of the Quran, confirms that abrogation can be used in connection with “commands and prohibitions,” (Tafsir: The Commentary on the Qur’an by Abu Ja’far bin Jarir al-Tabari, Oxford University Press, 1987, pp. 471-2).

In the eleventh century, Muslim theologians insist that verses from the Quran may substitute other verses, (See for example, Al-Naasikh wal Mansukh by Ibn Hazim, Dar al-Kutub al-‘Ilmiyyah, Beirut, 1986). They also agreed that the Prophet changed his rules according to circumstances, (Sahih al-Bukhari by Muhammad al-Bukhari, vol 6, Kazi, Lahore, 1979, book 60, p. 31; See also, Al-Kashshaf ‘an Haqa’iq al-Tanzil wa-‘Uyun al-Aqawil fi Wujuh al-Ta’wil, Dar al-Kitab al-Arabi, Beirut, 1967, part I, pp 337).

Modern Muslim commentators confirm the doctrine of abrogation; they state that the laws might differ across time but that there should be no shame in the same lawgiver replacing temporary law with permanent ones (i.e. abrogating). (Tafsir al-Qur’an by Abdul Majid al-Daryabadi, Idara Islamiyyat, Lahore, 1985, p. 36).

Muslim theologian divide the Quran into verses revealed to Muhammad by the Angel Jibril in Mecca when his community of followers was weak and more inclined to compromise with Christians, Jews and the pagans of Arabia. It is during this period in Mecca that the earlier, peaceful, compromising, and lenient verses were revealed to Muhammad. But as his authority grew strong after he and his followers migrated to Medina, other verses came down to him; it is those defiant, insulting, attacking, and calling for jihad against non-Muslims verses that abrogate the previous verses.

Muslim theologians insist that anyone who studies the Quran without mastering the doctrine of abrogation would be “deficient” (See Al-Nasikh wal-Mansukh by Abu al-Kasim Hibat-Allah Ibn Salama, Dar al Ma’arif, Cairo, 1966, pp. 4-5. On page 142-3, he lists the abrogated verses. See also pp. 7, 11, 26-27, 37, 46.).

Western readers may not have heard with this fundamental doctrine in Islam. Muslim commentators refer to the peaceful, compromising, and tolerant verses from the Quran; they do not tell their Western audience that these verses have been annulled and have been replaced by verses which are defiant, insulting, attacking and calling for jihad against non-Muslims. So far this tactic, used by Muslim commentators, has been successful in the Western media. Western journalists and scholars, although—some of them studied Arabic—are not capable of understanding the old Arabic language, in which the Arabic literature and history is originally documented, and they may not have access to these books which deal with abrogation. Muslim commentators avoid any discussion of the abrogation in the Quran.

Al-Suyuti, (1445-1505), an authoritative Muslim scholar said in his Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Quran that everything in the Quran about forgiveness and peace is abrogated by verse 9:5. The verse orders Muslims to fight the unbelievers and to establish Allah’s kingdom on earth. Verse 9:5 reads the following:

“When the sacred months are over, slay the ‘mushrikoon’ (those who associate gods with Allah) wherever your find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful” (Quran 9:5).

Muslim theologians call this verse, “The Verse of the Sword.” Some Muslim writers call it “the Ultimatum”. Chapter 9 of the Quran, in which the Verse of the Sword is written, is the only chapter that does not begin “in the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.” All other chapters of the Quran begin with this opening statement. (See Al-Itqan fi ‘Ulum al-Quran by Al-Suyuti, part 1, pp.60, 65, 164).

Muslim commentators confirm that the Prophet received this revelation (9:5) in the year 631, one year before his death, when he had returned to Mecca, triumphant. (See, The History of al-Tabari, vol. 8, pp. 160-87). The most reliable source in the Hadith collection of Sahih al-Bukhari, states that chapter 9 of the Quran was the last chapter revealed to Muhammad. (Sahih al-Bukhari, vol. 6, book 60, # 129).

Prior to receiving The Verse of the Sword, Muhammad had reached agreements with various pagan tribes of Arabia. But all these agreements were nullified after that verse. The Verse of the Sword creates license for Muslim extremists to kill non-Muslim, solely on the basis of their refusal to accept Islam.

Al-Dahhak Ibn Muzahim, an authentic transmitter of Hadiths, said that The Verse of the Sword “abrogated every agreement of peace between the Prophet and any idolater, every treaty, and every term. The Shafi’i School of Jurisprudence in Sunni Islam took this as a justification for killing anyone who abandoned prayer and for fighting anyone who refused to pay religious “Jizya” (head tax for protection paid to Muslims by non-Muslims).” (See Islamic Jurisprudence: Shafi’i Risalah by Khadduri, pp. 333-52, notes, pp. 33-9).

Muslim fundamentalists cite this verse to justify their violent jihad against non-Muslims. The Quranic term ‘mushrikeen’ or “mushrikoon” means those who associate gods with Allah; this applies to the Hindus and Christians. Christians’ belief in the Trinity implies that Jesus is God. This has been interpreted by Muslim theologians that Christians believe in two Gods: God the father and God the Son. Such a belief is called, in Arabic, “ishrak”, the etymology of the Quranic word, “mushrikeen”.

Since Chapter 9 of the Quran came late during the life of the Prophet, therefore,  it abrogates previous peaceful verses of the Quran. According to Sahih al-Bukhari, Allah revealed this chapter to the Prophet in order to discard any restraint on Muslims, and to command Muslims to fight against all the pagans as well as against the People of the Book (i.e. Christians and Jews) if they do not embrace Islam, or until they pay the “Jizya” (which is a religious tax). The verse says: “But if they (non-Muslims) repent and establish worship and pay the alms to the needy…” This is an ultimatum to non-Muslims to convert to Islam.

Al-suyuti states that one hundred twenty four verses in the Quran have been abrogated by “The Verse of the Sword”. According to Shaidalah, a Muslim source of jurisprudence, the Quranic verse that we mentioned earlier which states: “You have your religion and I have mine” (Quran 109:6), and “Let there be no compulsion in religion” (Quran 2:256), both verses have been abrogated, long time ago. (See al-Itqan fi ‘Ulum al-Quran by al-Suyuti, cited earlier).

A contemporary, Muhammad Sa’id Ramadan Al-Buti, a PhD holder from al-Azhar University in Egypt,  and dean of the Faculty of Religion at Damascus University, Syria , wrote the following commentary: “Verse 9:5 does not leave any room in the mind to conjecture about what is called defensive war. This verse asserts that holy war, which is demanded in Islamic law, is not a defensive war because it could legitimately be an offensive war. That is the apex and most honorable of all holy wars. Its goal is the exaltation of the word of Allah, the construction of Islamic society, and the establishment of Allah’s kingdom on earth regardless of the means. It is legal to carry on an offensive holy war.” (Jurisprudence in Muhammad’s Biography by Muhammad Sa’id Ramadan al-Buti, Dar al-Fikr, Damascus, 2001, pp. 323-4).

Western readers, who read the Quran, will not notice this distinction between the abrogated and non-abrogated verses. The abrogated verses were kept in the Quran. So, Western readers do not know that those verses, which are considered nice, peaceful, reasonable, loving and tolerant toward non-Muslims, are in fact abrogated, i.e. overridden and annulled by later verses which validate such things as terrorism, hatred and violence toward other religions.

Muslim commentators, who appear on TV programs or write essays on this subject, do not disclose to their Western audience that these verses are in fact abrogated and could not be used as a reference of Islamic peaceful dealings with other religions. Only the remaining verses which have threatening tones against non-Muslims are not abrogated, because they came to the Prophet at a later time.

The current phase of Jihad against non-Muslims stems from the doctrine of abrogation, which commands Muslims to “Fight those who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the People of the Book (i.e. Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizya (head tax for protection) with submission and feel themselves humiliated” (Quran 9:29). “And those who disbelieve (non-Muslims) will be gathered unto Hell” (Quran8:36). “If thou couldst see how the angels receive those who disbelieve (non-Muslims), smiting faces and their backs and (saying): Taste the punishment of burning” (Quran 8:50).

The Verse of the Sword abrogates the following verse: “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob and his children (i.e. the twelve children of Jacobs), and what is given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to all other prophets from their Lord. . .” (Quran 2:257).

Abrogation has ramifications, one of which is manifested in the lack of condemnation by the Muslims in general to the persecution of Christians in Islamic countries. This explains why Muslims around the world have little or no enthusiasm to mobilize demonstrations in the streets of Washington DC, or Paris or London to condemn Muslim terrorists. The mild reaction by Muslims to the attack of September 11 on the United States is just one example of lack of interest in condemning Muslim terrorists. The attackers of September 11 did what they did in compliance with “The Verse of the Sword”. The doctrine of abrogation drops any sense of remorse, or mercy by Muslim extremists towards non-Muslims. There is a popular saying in the Muslim world in Arabic: “You must defend your brethren (Muslim) under any circumstances, whether he is aggressor or victim” (Wansur akhaka idha kaana dhaliman aw madhluman).

The doctrine of abrogation creates hatred by Muslims towards non-Muslims. It is impermissible for a Muslim to attend the celebration of Christian festivals and congratulate them. Here is a Fatwa issued by Sheikh Muhammed Salih al-Munajjid; it reads the following: “…It is not permissible for the Muslims to attend the festivals of the mushrikeen (those who associate gods with Allah), according to the consensus of the scholars whose words carry weight . . .Do not enter upon the mushrikeen in their churches (i.e. Christians) on the day of their festival, for divine wrath is descending upon them. . .Avoid the enemies of Allah on their festivals. . .Whosoever settles in the land of the non-Arabs (non-Muslims) and celebrates their new year and festival and imitates them until he dies in that state, will be gathered with them on the Day of Resurrection” ( Last time viewed Jan. 5, 2011.

Treatment of Christians under Islam

The doctrine of abrogation gives license to Muslim extremists to persecute non-Muslims. From the beginning, Islam regarded both Christians and Jews as second-class citizens. Time and again, the Muslim texts, which are represented in the Quran and the second source of the Islamic law, known as the “Hadith” (sayings of the Prophet) and “Sunnah” (deeds of the Prophet), assert the intention of humiliating Christians and Jews. Never was a Christian or a Jew to be left in doubt about his inferior status. And it must be said that, on the whole, Christian communities were massacred and their churches were taken away and turned into mosques; to add insult to injury, Christian men and women were forced to wear special garments in order to identify themselves in public as “dhimmi”, i.e. the insulted community.

History of persecutions of Christians and Jews under Islamic Sharia has been going on since the early Islamic invasion of the Middle East in the seventh century. During the reign of al-Mutawakkil (847-61), a wave of anti-dhimmi (anti-Christian) feeling swept the Middle East. The Calipha, Barhebraeus (d. 1286) reports, “was a hater of the Christians, and afflicted them by ordering them to bind bandlets of wool round their heads; and none of them was to appear outside his house without a belt and girdle. And the new churches were to be pulled down. And if they should happen to have a spacious church, even though it was ancient, one part of it was to be made into a mosque.

The Massacres of Armenians in 1915, which killed more than 1.5 million Christian Armenians in Turkey, in addition to half a million Syriac Orthodox, Syrian Catholics, Assyrians (i.e. the Church of the East), Chaldeans and other Christian minorities, who were massacred by the Muslim Turks and Kurds in the region of Tur ‘Abdin in Southeast Turkey, is a reminder to what extent Muslim extremists can do to annihilate Christians, Jews and Hindus, if they have power and the upper hand.

In modern days, Pakistan’s blasphemy law is one of the main causes of persecution against Christians and other religious minorities in that country. It was enacted into law during the Islamization process under the military dictatorship of General Muhammad Zia ul-Haq in the 1980s. Under the law, anyone who speaks ill of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad commits a crime and faces the death penalty. The law stipulates that “derogatory remarks, etc., in respect of the Holy Prophet either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.” (See the Blasphemy Law in Pakistan. 

Christians who make up 4 percent of Pakistan’s population have been especially concerned about the law saying it offers them no protection. Convictions hinge on witness testimony and often these are linked to personal vendettas. Under this law, a Pakistani court sentenced in November, 2010, Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of four to death, in a case that has exposed deep rifts in the troubled Muslim nation of more than 170 million people. On Tuesday, January 4, 2011, the governor of the most populous state of Punjab, Salman Taseer, who had strongly opposed the law and sought presidential pardon for the 45-year-old Christian woman, was gunned down by one of his bodyguards.

In Sudan, it is estimated that more than 1.5 million Christians have been killed by the Janjaweed, the Arab Muslim forces in northern Sudan since 1984. (Source, Wikipedia).

In Ghaza, under the auspices of Hamas, Christian citizens, Christian establishments and religious institutions are singled out and attacked by Muslim extremists belonging to the Islamic  Hamas movement.

In 1999, anti-Christian violence erupted by local Muslims in Indonesia. Tens of thousands died when Muslim gunmen terrorized Christians who had voted for independence in East Timor. (See The Faith: A History of Christianity by Brian Moynahan, Random House, 2003, p. 728.)

Saudi Arabia regularly imprisons Christians from other nations. Christians are arrested and lashed for practicing their faith in public. No one is allowed to be a citizen in this nation unless he or she is Muslim. Prayer services by Christians are broken up by the police, and people who convert to Christianity are often arrested and may be sentenced to death.

Confiscation of Churches

The spread of Islam was always associated with confiscating churches and turning them into mosques. One of the major shrines in Eastern Christianity was the Church of St. John the Baptist in Damascus, Syria. Pope John Paul II visited the Great Mosque of Damascus) popularly known as al-Masjid al-Umawi) in 2001; he was aware that he was visiting the site of the Great Church of St. John the Baptist.

Muslim Turks annexed the great church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, which became the principal mosque of the Ottoman Empire. The Church of Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom), constructed between 532 and 537 on the orders of the Byzantine Emperor, Justinianus. It was a former patriarchal basilica, later a mosque. It was officially turned into a museum in 1935 by Ataturk.

The great Jacobite Church of Amida (modern-day Diyarbakr in Southeast Turkey, became the courtyard of the Great Mosque of Diarbakr.

The tomb of a Jacobite Patriarch at Niveveh, near Mosul in Iraq, was confiscated and turned into the mosque of Jonah (Nabi Yunis). (See the Decline of Medieval Hellenism, by Speros Vryonis, 1899, p. 197.)

The Ottoman Empire never stopped confiscating churches and converting them into mosques. When they occupied Budapest, all the churches but one became mosques. In Cyprus, the Gothic Cathedral of Famagusta became the Turkish mosque of Lala Mustafa Pasha. Originally, it was known as the Saint Nicolas Cathedral, and later as Ayasofya Mosque of Magusa, the largest medieval building in Gamagusta. Built between 1298 and 1400, it was consecrated as a Christian cathedral in 1328.

A significant surge in churches converted into mosques followed the 1974 Turkish Invasion of Cyprus. Many of the Orthodox churches in Northern Cyprus were confiscated, and many are still in the process of becoming mosques.

The Armenian Cathedral of Edessa, which was lost during the 1915 massacres of the Armenians, Syrians, Nestorians (modern day Assyrians), and Chaldeans, became a mosques, with a mihrab (direction of prayer to Mecca) punched into the south wall to indicate the direction of Mecca. There are no churches in Edessa in use today.

In Egypt, the columns of an older Christian Church was confiscated by the Muslims of Egypt and converted into Ibn Tulun Mosque; considered one of the world’s largest mosques.

In many instances mosques were established on the places of Jewish or Christian sanctuaries associated with Biblical personalities. The second Calipha ‘Umar, laid down the foundation of al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Temple Mount is the most sacred site in Judaism. Its location was the site where Abraham offered his son Isaac in sacrifice. It was built by King Solomon in the tenth century BC.


To make things worse for the Christian communities throughout the Middle East, every single state in the Arab League, except Lebanon, inserted in their constitutions provisions indicating that “Islam is the religion of the state”; or ” the laws of the state must be based on Islamic Sharia”; or the “president must be Muslim”. All these provisions in the constitutions of the Muslim countries demonstrate disrespect and discrimination against the original Christian inhabitants of these states. Such provisions encourage Muslim states and individuals to commit acts of violence and murder against the Christian minorities. Such constitutional provisions make it possible for fanatic parties to flourish and instigate riots and violence against the Christian minorities as we see in Iraq, Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Indonesia, and other Muslim nations.

As if these discriminating constitutions are not enough, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), an international organization with a permanent delegation to the United Nations, with 57 member states is adding more troubles to the minorities in the Muslim states. While it attempts to safeguard the interests and ensure the progress and well-being of Muslims all over the world, not a single resolution taken by this organization addressed the status of the minorities in the Muslim states or condemning the massacres and violence against them. I might add that the U.S. has a permanent representative to this body.  So far no meeting was held by the OIC to look into these massacres, or to condemn them.

The Arab league (consists of twenty-two Arab states) holds meetings to discuss issues related the Middle East, or involving Islam. The Arab league refuses to meet or discuss the execution of Christians and other minorities living in its Member States.

Arab Heads of States and their foreign ministers meet or a regular basis to discuss policies related to the Middle East. So far not a single meeting was held to discuss the persecution of the Christians living in their states.

Sorts of Wine: Decide Your Grape

Sorts of Wine: Decide Your Grape

I will admit that I am somewhat picky. I will only eat certain types of meals, seldom ingesting dishes entitled with terms I won’t be able to pronounce or created up of animals I feel are cute. And, I will only day certain styles of guys, limiting myself to individuals who are good wanting, charming, effective, or, at the quite the very least, respiratory. But, my pickiness will not quit there. Transcending quite a few classes, I are likely to be picky when it comes to almost everything from what variety of clothes I don to what variety of cleaning soap I use. However, oddly enough, when it comes to wine, my pickiness subsides: I have never ever fulfilled a style of wine I didn’t like or wouldn’t consume.

Irrespective of my willingness to type a loving partnership with any style of wine that seeps into my life, you could not be as significantly as a booze flooze as myself: some of you could choose certain styles over other individuals. Simply because of this, it really is vital to have an understanding of the diverse styles of wine that exist: the additional aware you are of all the kinds, the additional probably you will locate a wine you actually like.

However, I won’t be able to examine all the styles of wine – listing each vintage and taste and mentioning each grape under the sunshine. Executing so would just take endlessly and by the time I finished, I, myself, would start off to ferment. But, I can provide an overview to assist you, the loyal drinker, locate a thing to quench your thirst, a style of wine you will want to invite over to fill your glass at evening meal.

Apéritif: Recognised as appetizer wines, these are the rooster fingers and mozzarella sticks of the wine planet. They are flavored wines commonly intended to encourage the appetite right before eating a substantial meal. They can include sherry, and Madeira.

Barley Wine: Though in possession of the term “wine,” Barley Wine isn’t really actually wine, masquerading as this kind of simply because of a substantial alcoholic beverages material that reaches up to 12 % by volume. Designed from grain rather of fruit, Barley Wine is just robust beer, like an ale that frequently performs out. When it originated in England, Barley Wine is out there planet wide. However, when sold in the US, Barley Wines are required to be sold with the label, “barely wine-style ales,” thus preventing confusion for the wine-looking for consumer.

Cooking Wines: Wine of extremely weak good quality is usually labeled “Cooking Wine,” as if becoming poured into a pan is just one move up from becoming poured down the drain. Typically containing a substantial total of salt, Cooking Wine isn’t really created to be consumed by by itself. Rather, it is intended to be employed as a way to increase a dish, bringing out certain flavors and seasonings.

Place Wine: It could seem like Place Wines are wines in possession of a laidback lifestyle and a southern drawl. But, in actuality, they are just wines that are created from a fruit other than a grape and supplemented with sugar and honey. However, simply because the term “wine” legally insinuates a consume created from grapes, Place Wines are usually fruit-specific in their definitions. They include styles this kind of as “plum wine” and “apple wine.”

Dessert Wines: Recognised for becoming served beside a piece of carrot cake or a slice of apple pie, Dessert Wines are wines that range among medium sweet to extremely sweet on the spectrum of sugar.

Red Wine and White Wine: It could seem like Red Wine and White Wine are always in competitors with each other, with bottles of each snapping in unison as the other methods. But, the real truth is that Red Wine and White Wine are so diverse in taste, and go very best with this kind of diverse dishes, that the two never need to have to contend. When Red Wines are commonly good at maximizing meals created of crimson meat or tomato sauce, White Wines are commonly good at maximizing meals created of white meat or white sauces. They are also diverse in taste simply because Red Wines are created with grape skins during the fermentation approach, triggering them to have “tannin,” a feeling you get that makes your tongue feel as nevertheless liquid is evaporating off of it. White Wines, on the other hand, are created without having grape skin and never ever have “tannin.”

Rose Wine: Rose Wines are also referred to as “Pink Wines” and, simply because they are usually refreshing in mid-summer time heat, “Summer season Wines.” Like a beverage that won’t be able to rather make up its head, Rose Wines usually are not actually crimson and usually are not actually white. Rather, they possess characteristics of both equally real crimson wines and real white wines. They are usually very best served with seafood, salad, chilly cuts, and pork.

Rice Wine: Just like Barely Wine, Rice Wine is a bit of an imposter, an ale that wishes it was a wine. Designed from rice rather of grapes, Rice Wine possesses a higher alcoholic beverages material than most beer and wines put together weighing in among 18 and 25 %. Rice Wine is known as Sake to the Japanese.

Glowing Wines: In all probability the most famed member of the Glowing Wine loved ones is Champagne, a consume that routinely fills the glasses at wedding day receptions and banquet halls. But, Champagne won’t be able to hog all the sparkling spotlight, Glowing Wines can be any style of wine infused with Carbon Dioxide. Simply because Glowing Wines do not usually pair nicely with meals, they are very best served on your own or with appetizers.

Desk Wine: Desk Wine is wine that is not fortified and not sparkling, creating it erroneously seem like the most basic of wines. By technical definition, Desk Wines consist of at the very least 7 % alcoholic beverages and no additional than 14 %. When quite a few persons equate Desk Wine with weak tasting, low cost wine, quite a few Desk Wines usually are not low cost, and certainly never taste like it either.

Irrespective of whether your favourite style of wine is Red or you, acquiring misplaced your salt lick, really do like to take in Cooking Wine, wine has a wide range of flavors. This makes it just one of the most versatile alcohols, possessing the potential to adapt to almost everything from cocktail hrs to State dinners and enabling you, no issue your style or your degree of pickiness, to always locate a thing with which to fill your glass.

Survival Strategies – The Finest Emergency Foods Kit

Survival Strategies – The Finest Emergency Foods Kit

On the other hand, assembling the finest emergency food kit for your self or your relatives really should be some thing each individual responsible adult takes seriously. Just a handful of of the “usual” predicaments that could crop up, when obtaining emergency rations for your relatives would make sense, include: loss of a task, temporary lay off, extended storm problems or electric power outage that traps your relatives at house.

Whatsoever your good reasons for on the lookout forward and environment up emergency rations against a difficult time in advance, we are right here to support you develop the extremely finest emergency food kit for your relatives.

Identifying Your Desires

Very first, lay out your preparation technique. If you might be just acquiring commenced in emergency preparation, you may perhaps not have additional than a working day or two well worth of food in your cabinet. If that’s the scenario, setting up up a thirty working day offer of food is a great put to start. If you already have 30 times of emergency rations laid by, the up coming move may perhaps be setting up up a six thirty day period or calendar year emergency food kit. The essential issue is to start someplace, and develop your supplies up until finally you have assembled the finest emergency food kit that you might be in a position.

Who Are You Feeding?

Do you have young children in the residence? Teens? More mature or elderly older people? Infants will involve distinctive feeding lodging like milk or method, even though the elderly may perhaps have some exclusive dietary wants, as nicely. Map out on paper who you might be setting up a food offer for and any distinctive points you require to get ready for them, or for your self. Then look at what it takes to feed that human being for a one working day.

How A lot of?

When you have created down what it takes to feed one human being for one working day, you can require to multiply that by the variety of people today, and the variety of times for which you might be getting ready.

What Do They Like To Consume?

There is certainly no require to dwell for a thirty day period on almost nothing but rice and beans. You don’t want to stock up on a few months well worth of food that your relatives will never touch with a six-foot pole, just simply because it was inexpensive. It may perhaps maintain you alive in a pinch, but you want to take pleasure in it, if probable. So choose the likes and dislikes into thought as you system. Never forget to look at food allergic reactions, as nicely. In an emergency condition, you wouldn’t want to deal with an allergic reaction from cross contamination, so much better to keep away from difficulty foodstuff entirely, if probable.

Styles Of Emergency Rations

There are dozens of ways to develop up a terrific emergency food kit. The least complicated, even though surely not the the very least highly-priced, is to make investments in commercially prepared emergency rations, available by a variety of businesses. These kits occur as one servings, or a month’s well worth of food for a one human being. There are dozens of selections to decide on from.

A different strategy, requiring a little organizing and management, is to merely choose what you purchase and use on a weekly foundation, and start setting up up a offer that will past. If you ordinarily use a few cans of beans and two boxes of mac ‘n’ cheese and a jar of peanut butter just about every 7 days, then begin acquiring double that, and established the further apart for your emergency food kit. Then regulate your stock by rotating it so that your food stays as clean as probable. Freshness would be a significant advantage in a extended-term disaster, where by you might be relying on your emergency rations for months, or even years.

When you have built up a handful of months offer of food, arrange your cans and boxes with the soonest expiration day in the entrance and the furthest out in the back again. Then, when you do your grocery buying, place the new stuff in the back again and use from the entrance. This keeps your stock clean and all set to use if and when the require arises.

Household canning is another a lot less highly-priced way to develop up your emergency food kit. Canning is starting to be a misplaced art, so if you might be not common with how to do it, you might be not by yourself. Canning food in glass jars involves a little mastering and effort but can enable you to maintain tasty, do-it-yourself food for years. Be certain to master which foodstuff involve stress cooking versus drinking water-bathing methods of preservation. Properly canned items maintain finest in great, darkish spots among 50 and 70 *F (10 – 21 *C) and are protected to consume for years just after canning.

For bulk dry items that are intended for extended term storage, wheat, beans, rice, sugar and other dry items can be vacuum sealed and stored in five gallon buckets with O2 absorbers to past for thirty years and additional. For the truly prepared minded, a handful of buckets of wheat and corn will go a extended way toward peace of thoughts.

A vacuum sealer is a great expense for anyone critical about their emergency rations. Sealing foodstuff in lesser quantities not only preserves them for a longer period but permits you to use them a little at a time, instead than obtaining to use a substantial container up speedily once you have opened it.

If you might be nervous about the expiration day on retail outlet-purchased canned items, maintain this tale in thoughts. A steamboat named the Bertrand was hoping to arrive at Montana in 1865 when it sunk to the base of the Missouri river. A person hundred years later, canned items from that wreck were recovered. In 1974, 109 years just after the accident, the food was analyzed by chemists and identified protected to consume. You really should use great sense when consuming canned foodstuff that have passed their expiration dates. If it looks odd, smells undesirable or tastes undesirable, don’t consume it!

Symptoms That The Foods In Your Emergency Foods Kit Has Gone Undesirable

Symptoms canned items have long gone undesirable: the can is bulging, or the lid has occur unsealed. Check for mildew or fermentation bubbles in the liquid. If the food rushes out of the can or jar when you open up it, there is stress on the contents that wasn’t there when the can or jar was sealed. This is a great indicator of bacterial activity resulting in a chemical reaction.

Comfort Foodstuff

When you have established a great foundation for emergency rations, you could want to start contemplating about including some consolation foodstuff to your retail outlet. In stress filled predicaments, we all switch to food for consolation, and yummy food could not be simple to occur by in the celebration of a disaster. Some points to retail outlet include:

  • Chocolate – powdered cocoa keeps the finest, but chocolate bars above 70% cocoa will maintain for numerous months, and a lot for a longer period if frozen. Sizzling chocolate mix has a shelf daily life of numerous years, and could simply be extra to the rotation of your emergency food kit.
  • Mac n’ cheese – Finest preserved dried by separating the noodles and cheese, and then vacuum sealing them with O2 absorbers. If you might be nervous about getting in a position to prepare dinner macaroni and cheese, it can be canned, but it will never have the exact same texture as freshly produced. Underneath cooking the noodles ahead of canning will support it to be a lot less mushy.
  • Honey – produced with natural preservatives, honey will maintain indefinitely, as extended as drinking water by no means will get close to it. Store in extremely thoroughly clean, extremely dry glass jars. If it crystallizes, you can return it to its liquid condition with a little warmth.
  • Freeze dried fruit or dehydrated fruit can be a terrific power booster and will maintain nicely when stored properly.

  • Spices – if you get to a put where by you might be obtaining to make all of your food from what you have on hand, you can be extremely happy for some further spices to… nicely… spice points up.
  • Alcohol – Naturally, a comforting product, but it serves lots of uses in a disaster state of affairs and it keeps nicely. Higher liquor content material (above 20%) will maintain the longest and above 40% can provide as a disinfectant if needed.
  • Tea – keeps nicely without distinctive lodging. To maintain it the extremely freshest, retail outlet in compact quantities with an O2 absorber.
  • Coffee – For those who actually require their cuppa to maintain their chin up, espresso will be an essential part of the extremely finest emergency food kit. Roasted espresso keeps, vacuum sealed in Mylar luggage, for up to two years. If you rotate it via your emergency rations, you will have great espresso for some time. For preparation outside of that, you can retail outlet eco-friendly espresso beans in Mylar luggage with O2 absorbers, then roast and grind them as needed.

What To Select?

How to choose what goes into the extremely finest emergency food kit? A great rule of thumb is six months to a calendar year of food that you would consume each individual working day. This is simply managed via great buying and rotation. For preparation outside of that time body, vacuum sealed Mylar luggage will maintain dry items for years. A lot of businesses and even faith-primarily based relatives preparation packages provide dry items preserved in #10 cans that will maintain up to 30 years. Making an emergency food kit that can past numerous years in a pinch is probable, with organizing and forethought.

Water will be vital to surviving specific varieties of disaster eventualities. When organizing for emergency predicaments, one liter of drinking water for each human being for each working day is a great beginning level. You’ll require some further for sanitation and cooking, as nicely. Be certain you have a great deal of drinking water on hand, or a way to get drinking water and sanitize it. Sanitation tablets and filtration techniques would be a important part of the finest emergency food kit.

Sorts of Wine: Pick Your Grape

Sorts of Wine: Pick Your Grape

I will admit that I am relatively picky. I will only try to eat sure types of food, almost never ingesting dishes entitled with terms I are not able to pronounce or designed up of animals I believe are lovable. And, I will only date sure styles of gentlemen, limiting myself to all those who are superior searching, charming, prosperous, or, at the extremely minimum, respiratory. But, my pickiness does not quit there. Transcending numerous groups, I are likely to be picky when it arrives to anything from what sort of dresses I dress in to what sort of cleaning soap I use. Even so, oddly sufficient, when it arrives to wine, my pickiness subsides: I’ve hardly ever satisfied a type of wine I did not like or would not consume.

Inspite of my willingness to variety a loving romance with any type of wine that seeps into my lifestyle, you could not be as much as a booze flooze as myself: some of you could favor sure styles in excess of many others. Mainly because of this, it is really significant to comprehend the distinctive styles of wine that exist: the additional mindful you are of all the versions, the additional very likely you will discover a wine you definitely like.

Even so, I are not able to go over all the styles of wine – listing each vintage and flavor and mentioning each individual grape under the sunshine. Performing so would consider eternally and by the time I completed, I, myself, would start off to ferment. But, I can offer an overview to help you, the faithful drinker, discover something to quench your thirst, a type of wine you are going to want to invite in excess of to fill your glass at evening meal.

Apéritif: Known as appetizer wines, these are the rooster fingers and mozzarella sticks of the wine planet. They are flavored wines typically meant to promote the appetite prior to having a huge food. They can include sherry, and Madeira.

Barley Wine: While in possession of the word “wine,” Barley Wine is just not definitely wine, masquerading as these types of simply because of a higher alcohol written content that reaches up to 12 p.c by quantity. Made from grain as an alternative of fruit, Barley Wine is basically strong beer, like an ale that on a regular basis is effective out. While it originated in England, Barley Wine is obtainable planet huge. Even so, when sold in the US, Barley Wines are demanded to be sold with the label, “barely wine-style ales,” hence keeping away from confusion for the wine-trying to find buyer.

Cooking Wines: Wine of incredibly weak top quality is generally labeled “Cooking Wine,” as if remaining poured into a pan is just one phase up from remaining poured down the drain. Generally that contains a huge volume of salt, Cooking Wine is just not designed to be eaten by by itself. Instead, it is meant to be used as a way to enhance a dish, bringing out sure flavors and seasonings.

State Wine: It could look like State Wines are wines in possession of a laidback way of life and a southern drawl. But, in actuality, they are basically wines that are designed from a fruit other than a grape and supplemented with sugar and honey. Even so, simply because the word “wine” legally insinuates a consume designed from grapes, State Wines are frequently fruit-certain in their definitions.

Aside from baked goods and fruity creations, dessert wines also go extremely very well with numerous styles of cheese.

Red Wine and White Wine: It could look like Red Wine and White Wine are always in levels of competition with each other, with bottles of each snapping in unison as the other approaches. But, the fact is that Red Wine and White Wine are so distinctive in flavor, and go very best with these types of distinctive dishes, that the two do not need to have to contend. While Red Wines are typically superior at enhancing meals designed of red meat or tomato sauce, White Wines are typically superior at enhancing meals designed of white meat or white sauces. They are also distinctive in flavor simply because Red Wines are designed with grape skins all through the fermentation course of action, producing them to carry “tannin,” a feeling you get that can make your tongue feel as nevertheless liquid is evaporating off of it. White Wines, even so, are designed without grape skin and hardly ever carry “tannin.”

Rose Wine: Rose Wines are also called “Pink Wines” and, simply because they are frequently refreshing in mid-summer heat, “Summer time Wines.” Like a beverage that are not able to pretty make up its mind, Rose Wines are not definitely red and are not definitely white.

Made from rice as an alternative of grapes, Rice Wine possesses a bigger alcohol written content than most beer and wines combined weighing in among 18 and 25 p.c.
