Islamophobia 101: Episode 32– Frank Gaffney calls Islam A Virus More Deadly than Swine Flu

Posted on October 1, 2009


Frank Gaffney demonstates his ignorance of and his bias towards Islam. He says that according to the Shariah, “Allah’s Will says that you need to force others to submit to Islam”. Clearly, he has never read the Qur’an. Here are two verses and a chapter from the Qur’an that contradict Frank Gaffney and expose his complete ignorance of Islam:

Verse 1: “If it had been the Lord’s Will, they would all have believed all who are on earth! Will you then compel mankind against their will to believe!” The Qur’an, Chapter 10 verse 99.

Verse 2: ” Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error; whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.” The Qur’an, Chapter 2, verse 256

Chapter 109, verses 1-6 : “Say: O you that reject Faith! I worship not that which you worship. Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which you have been wont to worship Nor will you worship that which I worship. To you be your Way and to me mine.”
