Bush’s Blood Halal

Nov 19th, 2006, in News, by

Habib Rizieq of the Islam Defenders' Front says it is religiously permissible to murder George Bush.

During a speech given to a large crowd protesting against the upcoming visit by George Bush to Indonesia Habib Rizieq said at Jakarta on Sunday 19th November:

Bush can be killed by anyone who has the chance to kill him. It's not just that it is permissible to kill him, he must be killed. I am prepared to be responsible for [saying] this in the hereafter.
(Bush halal dibunuh bagi siapa saja yang punya kesempatan untuk membunuhnya. Bush bukan saja boleh dibunuh tapi wajib dibunuh. Saya bertanggung jawab dunia akhirat.)

Upon saying these words Habib, who is the leader of the Front Pembela Islam (FPI), a radical Islamic group, was greeted with cries of "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) from the tens of thousands of people present at the demonstration outside the Istana Merdeka palace.

Habib Rizieq
Habib Rizieq.

Habib said that Bush could legitimately be murdered because he has committed crimes against humanity, not because he is of a different religion and race. More blood-curdling cries of "Allahu Akbar" ensued. detik

    This is an openly subornation/invitation to do a criminal act (never mind who becomes the target) and this shouldn’t be tolerated by a democratic judificial government, but I become more and more pessimistic.

    It is more and more difficult for me as a neutral person to find more arguments pro Islam, except saying: this is not Islam, these are just the words of an obsessed, clouded soul.
    May Allah s.a.w. forgives him.

    what is so difficult about it? arrest him, lock him up in the jail.
    I just can’t understand why the police have never stepped up and f*ck that sh*t.

  4. avatar Andrew says:

    Ah, that moron in sorban again.

    May God forgive him, and bless him with the much needed intelligence to differentiate right from wrong.

  5. avatar Tomaculum says:

    Andrew,
    maybe there is no more place in his skull for such negligibility. I think his head is already full of hate and foolishness, which are (as I know) dominant and virulent garbages and have the nature to squeeze out the “weak making” attributes like understanding, tolerance and intelligence.

    Islam is what Islam does people.

  7. avatar the Moelem says:

    As a moeslem, I fully disagree with the statement of the Habib. Also, it must not justify that the majority of Indonesian moeslem have the same opinions to him. In my opinion, this guy has not deep understanding about how the Islam face the pluralitiy and diversity. He just take the moment to publish and popularize his organization, FPI, in order to be exist. Only a stupid moeslem follow his arguments and so it is just sensation based on the Islamic lable.
    I suggest to Habib voluntary move out from my beloved homeland Indonesia into Afghanistan, Irak, or Pakistan so that you can examine your belief.

  8. avatar sontoloyo says:

    This can happen only in a lawless and idiot country where encouraging people to kill others is tolerated. While on the other hand they are expecting foreign investors

    I say its permissable to take that bullhorn and stick it up his ass sideways, then see how loud he can yell

    Do I have to say it again that SBY is a fag?
    Hey SBY, if you’re a macho, do something about it.

  11. avatar Satireist says:

    Lets look at this rationally…oh ooops, sorry I forgot that is impossible…just kill him, ends problems fast.

    and by him, I mean Habib.

  12. avatar Molisan Tono says:

    this crazy sh*t head habib definiltely don’t understand what he is talkin about. he is unfortunately declare war with a president of other country…

    he just don’t get what he brought this country into… war? I prefer let his sh*tly brain to be chop off.

  13. avatar Hassan says:

    nah, killing bush is not the solution, the poor bastard had only 2 more years to go and he will have the democrats on his tail all the time. let’s just focus on strengthening our own country instead of wasting our efforts on some has been like bush.

    Tomaculum: I think you should’ve said “Allah SWT” instead of “Allah s.a.w”

  14. avatar Tomaculum says:

    Sorry Hassan, my mistake, off course swt. Thanks 🙂

  15. avatar Rockstar says:

    what a trash..

  16. avatar ali says:

    nah, killing bush is not the solution, the poor bastard had only 2 more years to go

    You can’t touch him whether or not you want to kill him. Fact of life.

    Cursing him only confirms your frustration.

  17. avatar Ismail says:

    Hassans position is clear ……cause I think you can deduce this from his words.

    from Hassans words……

    Muslims its ok(halal) to kill bush, but don’t bother because, Bush the bastard has only 2 years to go. is anyone surprised!. that is Muslim heart talking. love is the fartherest thing from the mind because its hate infested.

    Islam is satanic i say!!

    I hear someone twisting others opinion…

  19. avatar Philly Mcfadden says:

    Thanks to our Lord Jesus for His great love and mercy for President Bush. I Thank Him for His protection over him during his visit in Indonesia. Praise the Lord Almighty! President Bush safely arrived in US!

  20. avatar Miss Indo 07 says:

    well Ismail I think the point is not always to blame Islam this n Islam that, ppl like u make us all look bad.
    frankly speaking, if u stay the way u r, then there’s no difference between u n that stupid FPI leader.
    stop spreading hatred pls, even this time Hassan can make a nicer opinion.

  21. avatar Ismail says:

    Miss Indo 07, Hi I am sorry you feel that way, all you need to do is point out to me where i went wrong and i will admit, please go to the Quran and hadith and show me that I am wrong.

    I have nothing against anyone, but i speak the truth in love, I was a Muslim and I have taken time to read the text (al-Quran and sahih hadith bukhari and Muslimi and others..) for myself, the question really is have you. in Christianity we are encouraged to read the bible not to memorize it, like i did in Islam, but after i saw lots of Christians killed by Muslims while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ I had to find out for myself if this is indeed Islam or they are just plain wicked.
    but they are not, that is precisely what Islam teaches.

    please dear go read.

    sura 9:29

    Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures were given as believe not in God nor in the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His apostle have forbidden, and do not embrace the true Faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.

    please read the preceding and proceding verses so as not to be acused of cherry-picking.

    please tell me what you understand by it, because Muslims have quoted it as a justification for this despicable acts, but if you have another interpretation, i will be glad to consider it.

    I believe that if when don’t explore the truth, I am not sure we will make much difference, something is motivating jihadist and blowing up people and beheading,is not by people who are not convinced and sincere about there belief and i see all there ideology in the Islamic text.

    the truth they say is bitter but better, and we have to tell it, but if I am wrong i will admit and let go. just prove me wrong. yes I want people to see this ideology Islam for what it truely is.

    please read the books for yourself and conclude for yourself, as it is, Islam will destroy the world except we stand up to it, not hating people because they are victims too but the ideology.

    1ndra, its not twisting at all, its what i understood by what he said, because he could simply have said killing Buch is wrong but he did not.

  22. avatar Tomaculum says:

    What about the many Moslems and Muslimahs which are against these zealotism and hate yells? They understand the teaching of Islam surely different than such brainless people like Habib.
    What about the Jews which are agains the aggressive inhuman politics of Israel?
    What about the westerners who are trying to understand the east and the Islam without prejudice?
    I know, they (me including) don’t count, they are just disturbing factors in the hatred generalising community. So it is easier to argue with generalising and hate.
    The “truth” is that what we believe, isn’t it? Islam is not only Sura 9:29.

  23. avatar Andrew says:

    Hi Ismail, I just learned something yesterday, and maybe – just maybe, it will answer a lot of questions. There is this thing called progressive revelation in Koran, which means that whatever is said or written in one part, may be overridden by subsequent verses that chronologically came after that. Sort of amendments.

    The problem is, it’s not that easy to tell which came later, because the Koran isn’t written in chronological order (or so the source said).

    So if our Muslim brothers got confused and do funny things, I can now start to understand it – but it still doesn’t justify all the lost lives – including the Muslims’.

    who created Islam? microsoft?
    I’m desperately waiting for the patch…. damn you bill gates, release it, now!

    “¦ ah, whatever, i’m tired of this closed source thing”¦.
    I don’t want to wait for the “corporation” to release the patch”¦..

    Let’s switch to the open source one(s)”¦: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source_religion

  25. avatar Daniel says:

    Ismail, for what reason do you continuously hurl insults at Islam? You lack grace and you are far from winning the heart of any Muslim to your cause. Or are you trying to “open their eyes”. You will fail to have any impact on Muslims because you are offensive and insulting.

    You do not win someones heart by telling them that everything they believe in is wrong. That just causes anger and hostility. Put yourself in a Muslims position. would you like to have your religion insulted in such a way?

    Why, guys, always think in terms of Islam, Christianity, etc.?
    Can’t we think by OURSELVES?
    Finding answers in books? Yepp! Change the book : you change the answer, but you haven’t found a solution to your problem! Books are all contradictory, but actual experience is unique.

    Peace, love & freedom! (from the Hippie I-Think-for-You Kit, maybe)

    By the way, Munafik.dll,
    I’ve been to the Open Source Religion thing : I think it’s as dangerous as the Proprietary One. In religion, the principle is that truth cannot be changed : the disciple is inferior to the master. In “science”, the principle is that truth evoluates : the disciple may find new things. If religion does not help & inspire LOVE, patience, etc., just forget it !

  28. avatar 1ndra says:

    Ismail:

    The verses means that Muslim must fight scriptures because they spread hatred and make fighting with Muslim, causing instability.
    They (Scriptures) arent forbid what God and His apostle (Moses, Isa) forbid and twisting the real Injil/Bible.

  29. avatar 1ndra says:

    Fanglong:

    Right!

    If you learn by hatred then you’ll find the hate, even twisting the one those arent supposed to be, or worse, creating one…

    Make love (but use condom)…, not warcraft ™.
