Tom Holland points to the “black hole” of the origins of Islam and investigates as a detective on the inconsistencies of muslim sources, the absence of ancient sources, the absence of any mention of Muhammad or Mecca before the end of the 7th century , the very late nature of the 1st biography of Muhammad (dated from 200 years after his death). He meets specialists, scholars and archaeologists (Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Patricia Crone, Guy Stroumsa, Fred Donner and Tali Erickson-Gini), visits the sites, contemplates the vestiges, looks for historical material, which he confronts with the Islamic discourse.

3 Het probleem met de islam is…

7 nov. 2010.

Etienne Vermeersch licht het probleem van de islam toe, zijnde de Caïro-verklaring i.v.m. de Universele Verklaring van de Rechten van de Mens door de Organisatie van de Islamitische Conferentie. Naar het einde toe gaat het over hoe alles begint met kennis van de feiten en hoe de waarheid (zeggen) ons kan verlichten. Interview afgenomen door Siegfried Bracke in Bracke op vrijdag (2/4/2010). Meer info op: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caïro-ve… en zie hier voor de volledige uitzending: http://video.canvas.be/bracke-op-vrij…
 
Links bron i.v.m. Aisha:
 
Op de Al-Azhar universiteit in Egypte wordt geleerd dat Mohammed op 9e jarige leeftijd trouwde met Aisha… wat niet zo ongebruikelijk was voor die tijd. Gelieve dit gegeven niet telkens af te strijden a.u.b. Het is altijd al aanvaard geweest in de moslimgemeenschap en staat in de gezaghebbende hadith van Al-Bukhari:
 
Zie The Correct Books of Bukhari vol.7 boek 62 nr 88: http://i-cias.com/textarchive/bukhari…
 
Al-Bukhari geldt onder moslims als de belangrijkste bron over het leven en de boodschap van Mohammed: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Bukhari
 

4 Wat zegt de Koran echt over de hoofddoek van een moslima? | Samina Ali | TEDxUniversityofNevada

10 feb. 2017

De recente heropleving van de ‘hidjab’, de hoofddoek van de moslima, samen met het verplicht stellen ervan in sommige landen, heeft ertoe geleid dat velen geloven dat het dragen ervan wordt opgelegd door hun geloof. In deze informatieve talk neemt schrijfster Samina Ali ons mee, terug naar de tijd van de profeet Mohammed om ons daar te laten zien wat de term hidjab echt betekent — en het is geen hoofddoek voor een vrouw! Dus wat betekent de term dan wel? En hoe kan het dat fundamentalisten de term gebruiken om vrouwen hun rechten te ontzeggen? Haar verhaal verandert wellicht niet alleen je mening over de hidjab, maar ook je beeld van moslima’s.
 
Samina Ali is een gevierd schrijfster, activist en cultureel commentator. Haar debuut-roman ‘Madras in de regen’ won de prestigieuze Franse Prix Premier Roman Etranger en was finalist voor de PEN/Hemingway Award in Fiction.
 
Deze talk werd gehouden op een TEDx-evenement, in de stijl van de TED-conferenties, maar onafhankelijk georganiseerd door een lokaal team. Meer informatie hierover op http://ted.com/tedx
 

5 Matthew Handley | Islam Is A Peaceful Religion | Oxford Union

3 jul. 2013

Matthew Handley gives his argument for Islam being a peaceful religion.
 

Matthew Handley started the debate by grounding it in recent events, deploring the previous day’s “reprehensible act in Woolwich”, a sentiment that he was sure would be shared by Muslims around the world.

Handley continues by separating the religion of Islam from the individuals who “violently hijack faith for violent and maniacal ends” and maintains that the Qur’an has an “overwhelmingly peaceful character.”

In the light of the “decade long surge of violence and aggression” against Islam since 9/11, he summarises the debate as a choice between “love and hate and rejection, peace and conflict” and concludes: “I hope you make the right choice.”

MOTION: THIS HOUSE BELIEVES ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE.

7 Islam is a Religion of Peace

21 jul. 2011

Is the rise of terrorism and violence justifiably traced to the teachings of Islam, or is this call to war a twisted interpretation of the true Muslim faith? Most of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims are moderates who see Islamic terrorism as a violation of their sacred texts. Is it wrong to let a radical minority represent authentic Islam? Has fear blinded us to its lessons of tolerance and peace?

8 Mehdi Hasan | Islam Is A Peaceful Religion | Oxford Union

3 jul. 2013

Mehdi Hasan gives his argument for Islam being a peaceful religion.
 

Muslim journalist Mehdi Hasan, political editor of the Huffington Post, warns Anne-Marie Waters that her “astonishing claims” might endanger her future as a Labour Party candidate, but assured her “don’t worry, the BNP will take you”.

Hasan asks why, if Islam is “responsible for killing,” such a tiny percentage of believers actually participate in violence. He asks the audience if they really believe that 1.6 billion people are all “followers, promoters and believers in a religion of violence”.

Hasan urges them not to “fuel the arguments of the phobes and bigots and legitimise hate”, but to “trust the Muslims that you know and that you hear.”

3 jan. 2012

For once it’s actually the “It’s not what it looks like” excuse is actually the truth. Innocent men looking for a new shirt get more than they bargained for when their wives and girlfriends notice some red lipstick on their neck. Things go from bad to worse when a sexy girl comes out of the change room with a satisfied look on her face
