Video: The Koran challenge

posted at 8:04 pm on February 19, 2009 by Allahpundit

Yes, it’s the Canadian ‘Zo, a.k.a. Steven Crowder, begging for a fatwa. Bravery like this deserves to be rewarded, but I’m compelled to note that merely quoting the Koran won’t save you from expulsion from YouTube. As atheist Nick Gisburne learned the hard way, it’s hate speech on YT even to regurgitate Islamic scripture. Bow your head, infidel.

Real Cool! Felt good to laugh.

Silence!

I keel you.

heh.

I was on his youtube page.
His abortion video is great too.

annoyinglittletwerp on February 19, 2009 at 9:56 PM

I am urging all Zionist and Christian forces who are working with Steven Crowder against the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah to submit immediately.

Otherwise, we will hold them responsible for their actions. Any attempt to fight the Islamic Holy forces of Allah is pointless. We are committed to putting all of the world under our jurisdiction.

You cannot commit blasphemy and act against the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah. Any individual or group that tries to fight the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will be destroyed. The Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will overcome Steven Crowder and the Zionist and Christian infidels and their Hotair stooges.

Allah willing.

The great dream of Islam will come true. Muslims dream to see flags that read: “There is no god but Allah” fluttering in the wind over Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Parliament Hill in Ottawa and over Hotair, Allah willing.

That video was absolutely hysterical.

I blew coloa out of my nose reading this. Great satire really. I mean, I just blackened the eye of my 6 year old bride, beheaded my wife of 8 years after divorcing her with the triple threat, and ajaxed the community footbath. I needed that laugh!

daesleeper on February 19, 2009 at 10:16 PM

Nothing in there about beheading your wife being ok? Weird.

The “Sling Blade” reference was awesome. Damn good.

All religions need to be put into perspective as irrelevent. Mankind is smarter than religion, we don’t need any of them anymore.

Chook on February 19, 2009 at 11:03 PM

Crowder, I hope you don’t have any trips to Great Britain planned. Those cowards are not letting anyone onto their shores who display any attempt at freedom of expression. By the way, did you hear about the upstate New York Muslim who committed “domestic violence” on his wife by beheading her. I guess not since most of the MSM don’t want to touch that story. Any commentary about the Koran or Sharia law could get you….

Spot on. Much easier to wade through than R. Spencer’s amazing work. Any Spencer stuff is and automatic must read though.

See, here’s the main problem with that. As of today, non-Muslims are, for the most part, still unaware of your goals. Once they become aware of your goals, their superior firepower will render your goals unattainable. It’s a catch-22, really. Hitler used to dream of some “superweapon” that would stave off the Nazis’ enemies, kind of how like Muslims seem to think Allah will save them.

If Allah really loved Muslims, he would have given you the bomb first.

Marxists have their very own religion. It’s called dialectical materialism.

So, has he been banned from visiting the UK yet?

aero on February 20, 2009 at 1:42 AM

Really well done. I went to youtube to find more. I enjoyed ‘Drugs are Awesome’. It reminded me just how much I don’t like circuses

Whatever you do, do not try searching youtube for ‘the qur’an challenge’ because you will get the opposite of steven crowder

entagor on February 20, 2009 at 1:42 AM

Didn’t someone already make a video just quoting verses from the Koran and how Muslims were quoting those verses as justifications for jihad? Oh yeah that was Fitna. Worked out real well for Geert Wilders. It’s all hate speech, but they got all the verses from the Koran…wouldn’t that make the Koran hate speech….I’m confused….Someone clarify?!?

nazo311 on February 20, 2009 at 1:47 AM

Seriously, that guy is brave.

Where does he live? Canada? Wherever he lives, I hope he’s taken measures to protect his safety.

paul006 on February 20, 2009 at 2:12 AM

Are all of us who liked this and pass it along in equal danger of a fatwa? Let us be brave and do just that. Islam is a false religion and Liberalism is tolerating it more than Christianity these days, acquiescing to Sharia Law.

Blue Collar Todd on February 20, 2009 at 2:19 AM

I think we just found the new president of Bridges TV.

Captain Scarlet on February 20, 2009 at 3:25 AM

Seriously, I thought from the last vid (health care) that he had some rather Steve Martin-esque timing and expressions. He also reminds me of Josh Radnor from “How I Met Your Mother,” but he’s much funnier than that show, which isn’t anymore (alas).

Captain Scarlet on February 20, 2009 at 3:27 AM

He’s going to die… The video was great though…Great expressions, quick (he’ll need that last part).

And why would anybody report this, the guys giving every hate mongering muslim out there the opportunity to make lists. Why issue one fatwa when you can issue – 6.6 billion minus all the muslims – fatwas?

PresidenToor on February 20, 2009 at 3:53 AM

Nice and right on.

In America we celebrate those cinematic “masterpieces” like The Last Temptation of Christ and whatever that Tom Hanks flick was.

If your religion is real, then you have nothing to fear from a guy on Youtube

Dpet on February 20, 2009 at 5:48 AM

Outstanding, fatwa coming in 3…2…1…

Viper1 on February 20, 2009 at 6:34 AM

The Lenos, the Lettermens, the Stewarts, and all the other political pundits/comics can’t find anything funny about islam? They can’t find anything funny about Obama? Those in themselves are rather humorous positions to take, however unfunny. I guess jocularity only goes so far.

1) islam is not a religion, it’s a political ideology with an attendant mythology.

2) Your statement is as moronic as it gets.

The great wet dream of Islam will come true be destroyed.

rockyp on February 20, 2009 at 9:43 AM

Whenever I’ve tried to ask about a copy of the Qu’ran to read, I’m always told by a Muslim that no English translation will suffice. I have to learn Arabic to truly get the meaning of the words.

You know, I’ve often thought that learning Hebrew would make studying the Bible easier – to get the root of the meanings, and I am sure it does.

But if you cannot translate something and get across the meaning of the message – then there is probably something wrong with the message.

I tried about four versions of the Qu’ran and found them to be just about the same. There is a lot of hate and anger in that thing.

kybowexar on February 20, 2009 at 10:00 AM

Excellent and very funny!!

Thank you for that. Botros sounds like a guy who’s making a lot of media waves. Here’s a bit on his technique:

When Al Jazeera began broadcasting about a decade ago as the only independent channel in the Middle East, the Qatar-based news station opened a door to the free flow of information no Arab dictator could close. Until about 2000, state-sponsored news broadcasts and censorship were the norm (satellite dishes remain illegal in Iran, and were banned until the early 2000s in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere). As more Arabs could own televisions and the programming grew, all it took to outsmart the censors was a tuner and a set.

What followed was a burst of Arabic-language programming. Islamic teachers of every type leapt to the airwaves, hoping to expand the teaching of the mosque-once reserved for Friday prayer services and male-only audiences-to 24/7 preaching and propaganda piped directly into the Muslim living room. Botros is turning their campaign on its head.

By culling from what’s now a bloated archive of televised remarks from the Islamic world’s leading sheikhs and imams, he has found a potent way to expose the war within Islam, including raging debates between reformers and traditionalists, and to force Muslims who for generations took its teaching at face value to examine it at its roots.

If I get that right, he culls his material from the same airwaves he occupies. Cool.

unclesmrgol on February 20, 2009 at 12:13 PM

I watched this and yep it will get banned by the leftist traitors at youtube..

These liberals cannot be trusted..
I want to start making videos openly
Mocking and showing how the liberals are activly working
WITH the enemies of the USA ..

then post them on youtube..

jrab01 on February 19, 2009 at 10:22 PM

You’ve obviously misinterpreted the Koran, Quaran, Kuaran, Korn, or something.
Those beheadings were an unfortunate result of your wife being beaten about the head and shoulders with a very sharp bladed implement.
That’s all.
Clear now?
