Kuwaiti Activist: ‘Islam is tyrannical and never contributed anything to humanity’


A small minority group of free thinkers are gradually waking up to reality, but how long will they be allowed to speak like this?

The factual highlights:

… They are incapable of proving that ISIS is not connected to Islam. Whenever there is an immoral and inhuman crime, they say: “These people do not represent Islam. They are kharijites. They misinterpret Islam.” Show us your own model! No Islamic religious model has ever contributed anything to humanity.

Even the culture of the land ruled by Islam in Al-Andalus [Spain] developed and prospered thanks to the cultural openness to the Greek books, the translation of which began in the days of Khaled ibn Yazid. This prosperity did not derive from the Quranic text or the Sunna.

Who burned the books of Averroës? Who banished Alhazen? Who accused Avicenna and Ibn Al-Khwarizmi of heresy? Was it Israel or America?! They didn’t even exist back then. We did. Let’s be honest about it.

Kuwaiti Activist Nasser Dashti: Islamic Conquests Constitute Colonialism; the Arab Mentality Is Sectarian, Dictatorial, Tyrannical

Kuwaiti activist Nasser Dashti, speaking on the Kuwaiti Al-Shahed TV channel, recently said: “On the cultural level, we are sectarian, dictatorial, and tyrannical. Sadly, that is the Arab mentality.” On the practical level, he said, “our ruling system is democratic, we are liberal and secular in our daily lives, using everything that was ever produced by the secular European mind.” Dashti, a member of the Tanweer Cultural Center, further said that in political science, “those Islamic conquests constitute colonialism.” The show aired on March 26.

Following are excerpts

Nasser Dashti: When the religious text reached the Muslims, it addressed them in accordance with their own culture and environment. The religious text is absolute. It differs from the ideas that we humans devise in order to organize our lives. These ideas are mutable. They are dynamic by nature. That is why the secular and democratic constitutional states in the world are the more advanced in all aspects of life. There are six main readings and hundreds of exegises of the Islamic shari’a. Each theological school claim to have a monopoly over the shari’a.The Muslims today worship the sect more than they worship God. They worship their religion more than they worship the Lord. This is a problem. An absolute text makes everybody claim to have a monopoly on the absolute truth. We are experiencing a purely sectarian crisis everywhere.

People feel that everything that has to do with religion is a provocation. If you avoid presenting religion as an ideological enterprise, all will be fine, but if you present it as such and impose it upon the people, it becomes even more dangerous.

Interviewer: Do you believe that a secular state is better for all nations?

Nasser Dashti: On the cultural level, we are sectarian, dictatorial, and tyrannical. Sadly, this is the Arab mentality. But on the practical level, our ruling system is democratic, we are liberal and secular in our daily lives, we are liberal and secular in our daily lives, using everything that was ever produced by the secular European mind. So long as one’s liberties do not reach the point of bodily or psychological harm, he should be allowed to talk. On the contrary, when he talks, it makes life easier for me, because I can expose his ideas to society.

Interviewer: Would you allow ISIS in our midst?

Nasser Dashti: No, because they cause bodily harm… I think that anyone who claims that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam is a liar. They cannot prove…

Other guest on the panel: They cannot prove…

Nasser Dashti: The Prophet Muhammad said… Let me just complete my point. They are incapable of proving that ISIS is not connected to Islam. Whenever there is an immoral and inhuman crime, they say: “These people do not represent Islam. They are kharijites. They misinterpret Islam.” Show us your own model! No Islamic religious model has ever contributed anything to humanity. Even the Islamic culture of… Let me rephrase this: Even the culture of the land ruled by Islam in Al-Andalus developed and prospered thanks to the cultural openness to the Greek books, the translation of which began in the days of Khaled ibn Yazid. This prosperity did not derive from the Quranic text or the Sunna. Look what happened in the era of the Rightly Guided Caliphs, as evidence that the constitutional state has no basis in the shari’a. The transition of power between the four Rightly Guided Caliphs was unclear. Abu Bakr came to power following the Saqifah gathering. He was followed by Omar, who was elected by six men, chosen by Abu Bakr. Then came Othman…

Other guest on the panel: What does this prove?

Nasser Dashti: It proves that there was no system for the transition of power.

Other guest on the panel: The only thing it proves is that the Islamic system is flexible.

Nasser Dashti: This is a catastrophe. It is not flexibility. Can the transition of power be subject to flexibility?! Imagine it in our times – one day you are a democracy and the next a dictatorship.

[…]

What you call “conquests” we in political science call “colonialism.”

Other guest on the panel: You consider the Islamic conquests to be “colonialism”?

Nasser Dashti: In political science, those Islamic conquests constitute colonialism. Only in Islamic history are they called “conquests.”

[…]

Who burned the books of Averroës? Who banished Alhazen? Who accused Avicenna and Ibn Al-Khwarizmi of heresy? Was it Israel or America?! They didn’t even exist back then. We did. Let’s be honest about it. All the nations progress if they criticize their history. We do nothing but glorify our history. This is inconceivable. Our present is so wretched because we live in this lethal duplicity.

  1. ” …. on the practical level, our ruling system is democratic …”
    There is nothing democratic in islam. islam says that the perfect laws for society were revealed by *allah* to humanity via mohammad in the koran.
    In a democracy, the laws are created by the people, and are not determined by some fictional deity, such as *allah*.

      • Then it’s just not democracy as seen in the West.
        This the way that islam/muslims have a different meaning for Western concepts, to make it look as if we share a common world view.
        In no way does islam view the world and its citizens as the way the West views.
        There is nothing that the West can take from the world view of this individual that cannot be better found elsewhere.
        islam, the doctrine followed by this individual, is intellectually and morally bankrupt.
        What he says here does not change that fact one iota.

  2. One more attempt to convince us that a muslim can be trusted.
    This man still believes that the universe was created by an irrational ignorant fool called *allah*, and that justice is dispensed by *allah*, the sadistic psychopath.

    Do not trust him as *allah* has told him that islam is the perfect system and that *allah* intends for us all to submit to islam.

  3. “secular European mind”

    Actually virtually everything we’ve done in the last thousand years has been under Christianity. The development of western thought has been hand in hand with Christianity since the beginning. Including Hippolytus of Rome in the 3rd century who wrote The Refutation of All Heresies.

    It was only roughly when all European countries decided it was a fantastic plan to import infinite amounts of non-Europeans that everything was just all secular all the time.

    Before anyone starts misstating ‘Separation of Church and State’ firstly, that is not in the Constitution in any way. They only talked about it. There is only one reason they even were talking about it:
    That’s because back when the Catholic Church was running Britain, indeed everywhere it was, essentially the Church ran court-type functions and the King ran executive-type functions. There already was a separation of powers. This changed when the English King became the head of the Anglican Church. Now both were run by him alone.

    This is why they wanted checks and balances.

    It’s also why they discussed Separation of Church and State. They wanted to be sure there would be no State-controlled Church. That’s it. They didn’t want to remove all religion from the State.

    • Isn’t it time to admit that Science which is based on evidence has superceded religious dogma which is tantamount to believing in green fairies at the bottom of the garden. It is only a very naive and simplistic mind that can possibly believe the religious crap that they plead with us to accept.

      • Hahahaha, you’re one of those. I already showed both are intertwined. Science is nothing but the exploration of God’s Creation. Science is not itself a religion, the way you seem to be treating it.

        I don’t take advice from proselytizing fedora tipping atheists.

  4. Applause applause! There are many who speak the truth in the Arab world and that can only be a good thing! Notice that the other speakers got very silent when he was talking about islam contributing nothing to humanity. They can try and conceal the truth about islam’s devious nature but the truth about islam will be exposed by muslims themselves! And many pathetic muslims believe that the refugees going to Europe will turn it into an islamic continent, on the country many will leave islam as they had enough of it! Mark my words!
