U.S. City named after Muslim Hero: Biography of Emir 'Abd al-Qadir
RELIGION & SPIRITUALITY JUNE 8, 2009BY: J. SAMIA MAIR



According to the official website of Elkader, Iowa (founded in 1846), the town was named after Emir 'Abd al-Qadir, whom they describe as "a young Algerian hero who led his people in a resistance to French colonialism between 1830 and 1847."

http://www.elkader-iowa.com/History.html

Emir 'Abd al-Qadir was an amazing person from what I have read. He responded to French savagery with incredible magnanimity, becoming the personification of Islamic virtues.

Reza Shah-Kazemi writes in his article about Jihad:

http://www.zaytuna.org/seasonsjournal/seasons4/45-68%20Spirituality%20of%20Jihad--Reza%20Kazemi.pdf

"At a time when the French were mutilating Arab prisoners, wiping out whole tribes, burning men, women, and children alive; and when severed Arab heads were regarded as trophies of war--the Emir manifested his magnanimity, his unflinching adherence to Islamic principle [by refusing] to stoop to the level of his 'civilized' adversaries.'"

When the Algerian resistance failed, the Emir eventually was exiled to Damascus where he saved the lives of thousands of Christians against Muslims whom he believed were acting against Islam.

During his lifetime, the Emir achieved somewhat of a celebrity status. His noble character was celebrated around the world by French prisoners, Christians, Muslims, and others--and apparently the founders of Elkader, Iowa.

Author John W. Kiser recently published a biography about the Emir, Commander of the Faithful: The Life and Times of Emir Abd el-Kader (2008). The book has been well-received by Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

http://www.amazon.com/Commander-Faithful-Times-el-Kader-1808-1883/dp/0979882834/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1244374603&sr=1-1

For example, Daisy Khan, Executive Director, American Society for Muslim Advancement, writes "an extremely important book for both Muslim and non-Muslim audiences...in Abd el-Kader, we can look to a leader--as scholar, spiritual master, and warrior--who struggled for justice in his own society without transgressing the limits of a just war."

http://www.asmasociety.org/about/b_dkhan.html

Kiser notes in his book that "Abd el-Kader's humanitarianism, and specifically, his rules for the treatment of prisoners anticipated the Geneva Code of 1949." (p. 322, fn)

I did not agree with everything Kiser had to say or his characterization of some events. For example, Kiser writes, "There was only one compass for the emir: Islam." (p. 264). Later, he mentions a couple of reports that the Emir had 5 wives, but notes that it "would not have been characteristic of the emir to violate the limit of four wives permitted in the Koran, yet neither was he perfect." (p. 321)  While no human is perfect, it seems extremely unlikely that the Emir would have had 5 wives, given his strict adherence to Islamic law.

Kiser also includes an improbable story of how the Emir met his first wife. The story includes a secret rendezvous, an embrace, and a voyeur, whom the 15-year-old Emir tracks down and apparently kills in a river struggle. Although Kiser questions its veracity, nevertheless he states that the story is conceivable. (pp. 22-23)

Overall, I tremendously enjoyed reading about this great man and his adherence to Islamic principles when faced with abominable horrors. His exemplary character is a testament to the beauty of Islam.

Racists Totally Freak Out Over Muslim ‘Batman of Paris’





“Another day, another racist freakout over non-white superheroes. But unlike the hilariously dishonest racism we saw when the Council of Conservative Citizens called for a boycott of Marvel’s Thor movie on account of a mythical Norse god’s depiction as a black man, a recent round of conservative attacks on Nightrunner — DC’s Muslim Batman of Paris — are prejudicial in a more insidious way. While the CCC put forth a laughably tenuous justification for their outrage, it was with respect to one specific character in one specific context. The argument against Nightrunner, led by conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston, is based on the bigoted belief that a Muslim superhero is by definition an exercise in deceitful political correctness, and that Muslims are natively evil.

Introduced in this month’s Detective Comics Annual #12 and Batman Annual #28, Nightrunner is a 22-year-old Algerian Muslim who’s lived in Paris his entire life (it seems reasonable to assume he was born in France, but at the very least he was raised there). Born Billai Asseiah, the character is uncommonly adept at the highly YouTubeable gymnastic form known as parkour. That and Asseiah’s sense of justice make him an ideal recruit for Bruce Wayne’s new Batman, Inc. initiative, whereby he franchises Batmen to cities all over the world.

Huston views French Muslims — which is to say, immigrants or those descended from immigrants — as inauthentically French, and, as such, that Batman would choose a Muslim as Paris’ champion is gravely offensive to him and his loathsome ilk….”

1930, from Ger. Nazi, abbreviation of Ger. pronunciation of Nationalsozialist (based on earlier Ger. sozi, popular abbreviaton of "socialist"), from Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei "National Socialist German Workers' Party," led by Hitler from 1920. The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c.1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, Ger. form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean "a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person." Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in WWI Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary. An older use of Nazi for national-sozial is attested in Ger. from 1903, but EWdS does not think it contributed to the word as applied to Hitler and his followers. The NSDAP for a time attempted to adopt the Nazi designation as what the Germans call a "despite-word," but they gave this up, and the NSDAP is said to have generally avoided the term. Before 1930, party members had been called in Eng. National Socialists, which dates from 1923. The use of Nazi Germany, Nazi regime, etc., was popularized by German exiles abroad. From them, it spread into other languages, and eventually brought back to Germany, after the war. In the USSR, the terms national socialist and Nazi were said to have been forbidden after 1932, presumably to avoid any taint to the good word socialist. Soviet literature refers to fascists.

You see the reason in a few pages back I mentioned 'your family' I was being sarcastic, trying to demonstrate how you talk and how stupid it sounds... if I took the same undertone of speech but say.. talked about your family and kept saying how 'real' it all is.

lol we don't have to deny anything, because it's not true to begin with.

It has nothing to do with Jewish teachings or Jesus' teachings but later teachings including that of Paul's we've been over this already Smiley

Without Paul and the roman church you have no trinity. As was already mentoined the early christians, true followers of Jesus were executed. Anything deemed heretic to the roman church was done away with.

You said Paul was commanded on God's authority as a prophet. We see him as a false prophet. Jesus warned of false prophets who would speak in his name and Paul certainly fits the criteria.

Trinitarianism was enforced by the sword.

Of course God does not enter his creation or becomes his creation. lol. THIS is a concept you can't grasp. That is why I made this thread, you are preaching PANTHEISM not monotheism.

The concept in monotheism is that God is without beginning or end, everlasting, eternal, never changing. He does not lose or get something extra of knowledge or otherwise.

God 'becoming' something else means God changes. Jesus certainly had a beginning and an end. God does not.

I found it funny when I thought about it. 'God' being in the womb of a woman for 9 months.

Adam had no mother or father, but our creator God and was formed from the earth.
Eve had no mother or father, but our creator God and was formed from man.

Jesus had no father but a mother, but God created him and he was born through a miracelous birth through a woman.

3845  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Steroids Info & Hardcore / HGH and T4 supplementation, does the same rule apply for GHRPs? on: November 05, 2012, 09:07:57 PM
I read that with HGH T4 to T3 conversion is accelerated which results in T4 depletion and then less T3 in the long run too.

I've also read that using T3 instead of HGH negates some of the anabolic effects of HGH while 'natural conversion' supplementing T4 retains TSH levels and the enzymes 'do their magic' with all benefits of higher t3.

Now my actual question is whether the same rules apply with use of ghrp2/6/ipamorelin variants and mod-grf? They are suppose to raise endogenous HGH levels. I am on year round. Would that mean T3 and T4 would go down in the same fashion? Would 100mcg T4 benefit ipamorelin/mod?

An interesting read from the Jewish encyclopaedia:

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/13912-son-of-god#3111

Quote
The Pious as Sons of God.
The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha contain a few passages in which the title "son of God" is given to the Messiah (see Enoch, cv. 2; IV Esdras vii. 28-29; xiii. 32, 37, 52; xiv. 9); but the title belongs also to any one whose piety has placed him in a filial relation to God (see Wisdom ii. 13, 16, 18; v. 5, where "the sons of God" are identical with "the saints"; comp. Ecclus. [Sirach] iv. 10). It is through such personal relations that the individual becomes conscious of God's fatherhood, and gradually in Hellenistic and rabbinical literature "sonship to God" was ascribed first to every Israelite and then to every member of the human race (Abot iii. 15, v. 20; Ber. v. 1; see Abba). The God-childship of man has been especially accentuated in modern Jewish theology, in sharp contradistinction to the Christian God-sonship of Jesus. The application of the term "son of God" to the Messiah rests chiefly on Ps. ii. 7, and the other Messianic passages quoted above.

The phrase "the only begotten son" (John iii. 16) is merely another rendering for "the beloved son." The Septuagint translates  ("thine only son") of Gen. xxii. 2 by "thy beloved son." But in this translation there is apparent a special use of the root , of frequent occurrence in rabbinical literature, as a synonym of  ("choose," "elect"; see Bacher, "Die Aelteste Terminologie der Jüdischen Schriftauslegung," s.v.); the "only begotten" thus reverts to the attribute of the "servant" who is the "chosen" one.

It has been noted that the Gospel of John and the First Epistle of John have given the term a meta-physical and dogmatic significance. Undoubtedly the Alexandrian Logos concept has had a formative and dominant influence on the presentation of the doctrine of Jesus' sonship in the Johannean writings. The Logos in Philo is designated as the "son of God"; the Logos is the first-born; God is the father of the Logos ("De Agricultura Noe," § 12 [ed. Mangey, i. 308]; "De Profugis," § 20 [ed. Mangey, i. 562]). In all probability these terms, while implying the distinct personality of the Logos, carry only a figurative meaning. The Torah also is said to be God's "daughter" (Lev. R. xx.). At all events, the data of the Synoptic Gospels show that Jesus never styled himself the son of God in a sense other than that in which the righteous might call themselves "sons" or "children" of God.

The parable of the faithless husbandmen and the vineyard (Mark xii. 1 et seq.) certainly does not bear out the assumption that Jesus described himself as the "son of God" in a specific theological sense. The parable recalls the numerous "son" stories in the Midrash, in which "son" is employed just as it is here, and generally in similar contrast to servants. If these considerations create a strong presumption in favor of the view that the original gospel did not contain the title, the other Synoptics do not veil the fact that all men are destined to be God's children (Matt. v. 45; Luke vi. 35). The term is applied in Matt. v. 9 to the peacemakers. God is referred to as the "Father" of the disciples in Matt. x. 29, xxiii. 9, and Luke xii. 32. Several parables illustrate this thought (Luke xv. 11 et seq. and Matt. xxi. 28 et seq.). Much has been made of the distinction said to appear in the pronouns connected with "Father," "our" and "your" appearing when the disciples are addressed, while "my" is exclusively reserved to express the relation with Jesus, and then, too, without the further qualification "who art [or "is"] in heaven" (see Dalman, "Worte Jesu," pp. 157, 230). But in the Aramaic this distinction is certainly not pronounced enough to warrant the conclusion that a different degree or kind of sonship is conveyed by the singular pronoun from what would be expressed by the plural. In the Aramaic the pronoun would not appear at all, "Abba" indiscriminately serving for the apostrophe both in the prayer of a single individual and in the prayer of several.

The title occurs with a distinct theological significance in Rev. ii. 18 and xxii. 13, as it does in the Pauline documents (Rom. i. 3, 4; viii. 3, 4, 32 [Jesus is God's ἴδιος, i.e., own son]; and in Heb. i. 2, 3, 6; v. 5, Cool. These writings indicate that the rise of the dogma was subsequent to the decades marked by the ministry of Jesus and his immediate disciples. See Fall of Angels; God, Children of.

Pretty sure bigbobs mentioned this before about servants of God.

Since the romans had no problem with gods and gods having children, it is understandable how something figurative would be turned literal to appeal to the pagan romans.

Based on your quotations of verses and interpretations you are propagating that either God is bipolar or that you have to be bipolar as it goes against common sense and rationally acceptable logic.

Absolute monotheism would mean God is one, unchanging, eternal and that there is nothing in the heavens or earth or beneath that can resemble God (as is in the commandments in the verses of OT).

Pantheism on the other hand is the idea that God can dwell in animate and inanimate things. As was demonstrated by certain writings of Paul, what you and onetimehard have said (his sayings that God can even become satan, can be a tree that can be chopped up and burnt, become a human or 'anything').

Polytheism is that there is more than one God. Now you dwell a fine line between that, you claim that God is 'three persons'. You have concluded that based on Pauline teachings. Apocrypha books lack this and teach of a Jesus as a servant of God but these are 'unofficial' and therefore unacceptable, but since the NT is mostly Paul's letters and writings you base your teachings on this.

Remember Jesus' disciplines didn't accept Paul, they rejected him and doubted his intentions as he was a pharisees Jew and a servant of the Romans, persecuting Jesus' followers.

Jesus' followers held the law, while Paul like the Romans wanted to rid themselves of Jews and the law.

As I mentioned in the first paragraph, your interpretations of verses basically make God out as bipolar or you have to be bipolar to accept these claims.

Such as:

-'god' praying to God; as in one example three times with the companions falling asleep the third.
-'god' sitting at the right hand of God.
-'god' not knowing but God only knows the time of the hour
-'god' crying out to God for help
-'god' saying that he cannot do anything but without God
-not 'god' 's will but God's will be done?

Etc...

There doesn't need to be a specific pagan belief to be identified although Mithraic paganism was accepted between the 1st and 4th century, not 'later' it was a 'rival' to the christian faith. And as we know much of christianity blended with paganism.

Jesus was not born on december 25th and christmas has nothing to do with Jesus. Easter has nothing to do with Jesus. Although something quite later, but it should be acknowledged.

Nor the traditions revolving around christmas with the tree, shoe, door decorations, star, etc... all pagan things. Although again later pagan additions, none the less shows the nature how christianity has moulded through paganism.

The faith of the Jews was not accepted by Romans, they wanted to destroy the Jews and their law. Hence it is quite convinient for Paul to try to lead the early followers including disciples of Jesus to abandon the law. An almost early conspiracy to do away with the holders of the law, the jews and their law and replace it with something acceptable to the roman empire.

Why do you think the Pope is called the 'holy father'?
