      oh no! he internalized Anti-Semiticism and sadly, judging by his utterances, its clear where they shoved it.

      he still has a head, just saying.

      "Mearsheimer" it does sound faintly fecal, can one say that, i am wearing my Mankini and am ready for a good Frenching.

      I am too depressed to talk to Americans after Bill Blum's latest idiocy. I started this shit after B. Ehrenreich janjaweed racism.

  • The politics of Jewish ethnocentrism
    • "That Jews “despise” each other proves to you Jewish ethnocentricity is baloney. To me it shows how pernicious it is. "

      in Islam man we love each other but we don't lose our heads

  • Palestinian anti-racist struggle against Zionism and Black anti-racist struggle against White supremacy are crucial to building a just world
    • should like to 'second' all of that if I may and International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, the name alone connotes your wit and brazen courage.

      bravo, bravissimo

  • The last Gaza war worried Scotland's Jews-- for all the wrong reasons
    • "Remember, the councils in question were flying the Palestinian flag not the flag of Hamas. But the Jewish respondents don’t want to make those distinctions."

      whats the distinction and why is it of import.

      Hamas in its conflict with Zionism is 100% in the right, you will feel better when you can acknowledge that and has made numerous laudable proposals to their Zionist assailants.

      "that represents a government that is dedicated to getting rid of Jews not only from Israel but elsewhere, I found offensive and an abandonment of a community that they represent.” "

      this is just contemptible, woeful you think Arabs, Muslims, Black people or leftists are going to dialogue with this kind of crap.

      "Our secular and religious leaders have done a superb job"

      but in the end you must take responsibility because you will experience the consequences of this vicious inhumanity,

      there is no safe level of Zionism if you let it have the Jewish community you have no one to blame but yourselves for the consequences, you can't hide behind Hamas as you have for decades behind, suicide bombers, Islam, terrorists, militants, Arafat or the whole grotesqueries you have created to absolve yourselves and through which you view us or even "antisemitism".

      "How do we create an Israel that respects and protects the history, culture, religion of all the people in the land?" and punish the crimes that have been committed, return what has been stolen, sure we and the Palestinians get no say, UK Jews are going to sort it.

      " Let’s ask ourselves why being Jewish in Scotland and everywhere else, including Israel, can’t be a whole lot better than it is today."

      as Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse writes in "Not for Happiness" of real religious engagement it " will not bring the kind of comfort and ease most worldly people crave."

      I am just listening to the conviction of the Choudary nutter in the UK, tough to be Jewish though.

      thats transgressive compositional disorder welcome to my world

      as to funny names i am now tormented by the need for Yorubalao, but you are right funny names are to be avoided Roha, not for everyone, the Yorubalao have no funny name privileges.

    • "with Yoruba words and Lao grammar."

      typical Japhite you have to contradict the Semito- Nilo-Hamite.

    • " ” Semitic DNA “

      Imagine that! A spurious grouping of language origins, "

      absolutely what's wrong with Afro-Asiatic language family and coincidentally many Jews wish to get a bit colourful and Afro these days, here is your chance Hebrew an Afro-Asiatic language see you at Kwanzah (and in the dungeons and on the burning barricades?)

  • Zionists and anti-Zionists march together for two hours in New York
    • "She added that a strong Zionist could march alongside an anti-Zionist, if they were committed to supporting Black Lives Matter."

      political action as tribal therapy, maybe the NYPD could hunt up those thousands of Arab Jewish babies stolen by the Zionist state, ambassadors of colour will not normalize Zionism anywhere but in the NYT or Jewish community press, but not in the emerging Black movements.

      " a leftwing political community that included Zionists"

      the anti-racism of racists, i don't think too many black people as opposed to those of colour, whatever they are, will be buying this.

  • White Jews and uppity blacks
    • "I’m done. I’ve lost patience with this shit."

      what! no sumud my Semitic brother?

      and there you were all Arab Manque imagining yourself like a dusky Yiddish Amr Ibni Kulthum, the Id on horse back, Pere Ubuing your way through this "they treat Jews like shit " wasteland,

      but we just Ubu Goi

      oh only looks like one ..try Arab, Black Arab its the real thing.

    • "There is no absolution. There is no god, and people are fragile stupid things."

      yeah everything sucks

    • That was very interesting

      "looks like a pale faced Egyptian."

      you know when the British state murdered Jean-Charles de Menezes, Brazilian electrician on the grounds of perhaps being Somalia...or Pakistani Tariq Ali pointed out that about 3/4 of humanity "look Pakistani"

      white is not a colour Woody Allen looks no less like a Norwegian nebbish than Lebanese one,

      my erstwhile boss for 25 years Dr. Muhammad Shariff at the Jama'ati ad Dawa, Tripoli, he vanished when The US destroyed Libya I don't think he made it, he was at that 1968 Democratic convention, was it Mayor Daley the one where they beat so many Black people, he described to me walking out in to that melee

      "Because I am so white the Police ignored me and no one attacked me" he looked Scandinavian but no doubt died like a dog somewhere, as you seem to be saying Seth white ain't all its cracked up to be when other factors come in to play, now you Jews are non-white because of your looks? its not your looks its the extraordinarily privileged position of Jewishness within the doctrinal system, Phil Weiss still suspects you all might be clever than us

      Americans are very weird on the subject of "race", looking like an Arab means nothing women, as I am sure your father realizes go crazy for Arab man looks do you have any idea how mixed we are, who ever you are somewhere is an Arab who looks just like you, its no claim to fame. My cousins range from black African looking to "grey' eyed blondes all pure Egytpian.

      There is another view of the story about Jewish involvement in the NAACP etc current among African American and Caribbean folks you could look in to it.

      my main problem is that this attempt to gain some kind of absolution by donning the mantle of oppression is not how Black people view themselves, its a very white guilt laden view, I as an "Arab" or "Black Briton" know my history we are not poor innocent victims not just anybody can be one of us Seth all that neurosis and doubt won't get you far with us, some of the blackest people i have known were little "white" cockneys incorrigibly anti-authoritarian, utterly despised socially, if there is to be couth they are the very definition of uncouth, we always got along fine with them, some of them were Jews, you know the real kind with backbone, substance and principles.

      "the oppressed" contrary to popular prejudice is not an easy club to join you will need both acuity and courage and you will be tested, sorely tested do you know how fucking unruly and exasperating we are.

      I always tell white people i am black and black people that i am white, seriously, because its true but you need to stop looking at the surface.

      there is something that white people always miss, i have been watching the "intersectionality" stuff here, its very funny you really don't see it, the crucial part of Crenshaw's piece was

      " But the legacy of struggle among US Black women suggests that a collectively shared Black women’s oppositional knowledge has long existed. This collective wisdom in turn has spurred US Black women to generate a more specialized knowledge, namely, Black feminist thought as critical social theory."

      "women’s oppositional knowledge"

      the system causes you to misread us do you know how brilliant and realized we are you can only dream to be one of us, better start developing yourself, imagine the shame of being rejected by the despised, we can see you coming from a billion miles away.

      don't tell an Egyptian he is pale faced it will worry him and his wife might lose respect for him

  • Settler on motorcycle kills 85-year-old Palestinian shepherd and his donkey
  • When the language of genocide offends us more than ghettoizing another people
    • "Someone who is very well equipped to make such judgments."

      Roha you are so kind ( I will do my best I swear with the grammar punctuation, i will fuck up so badly, shit i don't need a safe place)

      really from my heart because you touched me Roha, this is how religion happened for me, daddy was a sheikh so one day he was teaching these hausa dudes in the garage where they had shade, i was 5 it was my habit to run around naked, it was hot,

      i could see that class was finished my father motioned me over, i ran up in to the cool of the concrete garage naked and sat down between my fathers legs

      have you ever been in the heat when they pen a herd of cows and its hot and they make a series of low shuffling noises, not rhythmic but constant,

      well the arfrican dudes shuffled about there were 10 or so guys my father leaned down to me and said they will sing you will like it, how good is your hausa?

      for a long time they just relaxed shuffled its not a performance, the first voice that leads here said of me laughing at my Scholar father "we killed the boy, give him a drum" laughter etc this is if you are now, here it this is "it", the good "it",

      to accomplish the spiritual path there is nothing more important than other beings, you know people and animals that you know, insects, don't start, that's it care for them like women do with young babies they don't mean that shit they do to you,

      but as i was taught from young sarkin muri, real religion benefits everything touches effortlessly hear them a real thing with the sacred like they have in Judaism and with the enlightenment, that thing, that kind and gentle thing there

    • "Modesty prevents me from naming the reviewer"

      Modesty is an especially vengeful deity, i have seen white people blush red when they violate Her dictates, which is apparently very painful for them.

      unfortunately the Dao that you can define is not the Dao, and yet "we saw you from day one with a Bible in one hand and guns in the other one" from day one mind you

      Modesty commands you dance to this and blush because " now everything has changed"

    • "One could even say that these people laid the foundation of the liberal humanistic philosophy that underlies modern Western societies."

      yes as you've demonstrated you can say that, now what?

      you are saying liberal humanistic philosophy underlies modern Western societies its that that makes them so murderous and avaricious, though no one can deny their "exceptionalism",

      yeah Islam done good.

    • "Meaning that religion in its original form was good but the clerics messed it up?"

      not at all, what is its original form? ( my "it" is without form)

      "One of the clerics’ jobs is to interpret holy writ"

      you don't say how can i have missed that, i can see i am going to get a damn good spanking.

      "so taken as a whole would you expect their interpretations to be so awful if the texts they are interpreting are so wonderful? "

      do you ever get the feeling that if you have 4 apples that you can eat the four and leave the apples.

      give me your text and i will make it wonderful for you, by the power of nothing,

      "Anyway, quite a lot of holy writ was the work of clerics, e.g. Judaic temple priests."

      perhaps but I mean the good stuff, you slipped in holy writ, what is that?

      "Of course you can ignore the interpreters and try to return to the source."

      again not the ones i like, why would i ignore them? they are shit hot.

      'and try to return to the source' try? its in your pocket, try not returning to it, you have never been separate from it, it wouldn't be interesting if it needed looking for, you have time for that,

      "That is the basic idea behind what is called ‘fundamentalism’ "

      things look bad for me there's no denying it

      "but you don’t want “pitiless fundamentalism,” you’d sooner have compassionate fundamentalism."

      is that wrong of me? i like compassion like chips with everything, i have no proof.

      "Well, so would I,"

      shit Stephen you have got me all excited, is something going to happen, eventually

      "but the possibility of such a thing depends on how much compassion there is in the source"

      you know man i see that shit everywhere in everything, including in this my much deserved takedown, i am so rooting for you.

      "how much compassion there is in the source" no compassion is the interpreter where it belongs ( this not an error get Roha to tell you about Dogen and language, i am too ignorant), "the source", Stephen you are so clinical i know what is in store for me.

      "Are prophets and messiahs" are you imputing ludicrous beliefs to me just because i am irrational and crazed, that's not fair, i have ignored prophets and messiahs what are they? and who cares?

      messiah is not a religious notion, its fucking sick, like saviour

      prophets again no for me no thanks you have as many you like though, and spare me..even though i richly deserve the refutation that you are going to get to

      "Are prophets and messiahs more compassionate than clerics?"

      i think they all made each other up, seriously Stephen i would like to concede the argument and humbly accept that I am wrong and that you are Sir the finest intellect to grind my blunt little mind in to the dust. (not sarcasm)

      "Take defeat upon yourself

      Give victory to others"

      (not a prophet not holy writ not gods law, a professor just suggests it and some other things)

      oh come its a little bit sweet isn't it,

      and now i can't be sarcastic because demons will shove molten brass rods up me if i am,

      i am unencumbered with beliefs Stephen, do you find them useful?

      its big world out there you can't grasp it reductively or at all, you don't need to its all yours anyway, sitting there unnoticed in the palm of your hand, the most wonderful thing (not a thing, not sitting not in the hand, not wonderful)

      as to me you have dispatched me logically if not compassionately ( fuck it i can take a bit of molten brass roding because

      "i cum frum Pudsey where birds fly back'ards to keep muck outa there eyes" allegorically.

      because i do not see any of us even me as problem that has to be solved, and if there is going to any solving it won't be by me as you have so ably demonstrated.

    • " Could it be that Black Lives Matter, on behalf of its own community, decided to slap the face of Jewish innocence by dramatically entering the hugely symbolic and crucially important aspect of the Jewish witness to the world?"

      could it be that you are not the center of the universe

      "Variations of the Black Power movement have been taking on American and Israeli Jewish establishments in this way for years. For the most part, these attacks have been beaten back through invocations of the Holocaust, Jews as at the forefront of the Civil Rights movement and Israel as a beacon of democracy in the Middle East"

      and vociferous denunciations of Black antisemitism, why leave that out

      "The fallback position of Jewish defense against charges of dislocation, oppressing and ghettoizing the Palestinians has worn thin"

      it was always threadbare

      "The slap across the face of Jewish innocence stings."

      "Jewish innocence" more properly racist obliviousness

      "When the language of genocide offends us more than ghettoizing another people"

      who likes being roused roughly from a profound slumber

      "The Movement for Black Lives has placed Jews on notice that we have arrived at the end of ethical Jewish history. What can be done, if anything, at the end, is the almost impossible question before us."

      right go back to sleep,

      i see the "prophetic" is excitingly solipsistic,

      no wonder so many Jews turn to Buddhism, which doesn't pretend to innocence or some vacuous "moral" mission.

      "What can be done, if anything, at the end, is the almost impossible question before us."

      you know Marc one day Tsong Rinpoche was walking on Pig Alley in Kathmandu being berated by an irate American denouncing him for sitting up on high expensive thrones while we prostrated to him, Rinpoche a little grizzled old man listened quietly to the increasingly incensed American,

      Pig Alley is a slaughter house the gutters run with a mixture of blood, shit and filth, Lama's often go about with skull cups hidden in the folds of their robes, they hold, being a human cranium about a litre,

      Rinpoche stooped down and filled his cup to the brim with this revolting black scummy fluid, the American stepped back in disgust as Rinpoche drank the whole lot down in one

      and smiling said "but i'm not proud", you should try it, being free of self regard is real freedom and its very good for Jews, it makes you interesting, you will definitely have more sex and lose weight, you want abs?

      Islam. Judaism and Christianity have no mission other than to help beings we owe them nothing, Priests, Alim and Rabbi's have together raped religion over many centuries you all seem united by your miraculous ability to court irrelevance at best or depravity more consistently, you and all the other "divines' are more responsible for the growth of pitiless fundamentalisms within the Middle Eastern origin faiths than any other single factor, i am genuinely surprised when any of you have the gall to speak this hopeless confusion, its time you represent or hold your peace.

      1st ed said

      "SR: You also talk about a photo-article in a fashion magazine, under the headline ‘Terrorist Couture’, which claims that the Palestinians are not really Palestinians because they have simply hijacked Arab dress and renamed it Palestinian.

      ES: We do it all the time!

      SR: The article also claims that this supposedly distinctive dress is not that of the people but of the upper middle class. Referring to the American author of the article, Sharon Churcher, you write: ‘In the larger scheme of things . . . she is somebody doing a hack job on a hack fashion magazine.’ And yet, you say you feel the need to go right back to the beginning, to explain the whole history of Palestine in order to unmake Sharon Churcher’s lie and show that this is in fact genuinely popular Palestinian dress. Doesn’t this need to go back again and again over the same story become tiring?

      ES: It does, but you do it anyway. It is like trying to find the magical moment when everything starts, as in Midnight’s Children. You know midnight, and so you go back. But it is very hard to do that because you have to work out everything and get past a lot of questions in the daily press about why Palestinians don’t just stay where they are and stop causing trouble. That immediately launches you into a tremendous harangue, as you explain to people: ‘My mother was born in Nazareth, my father was born in Jerusalem . . . ’ The interesting thing is that there seems to be nothing in the world which sustains the story: unless you go on telling it, it will just drop and disappear.

      SR: The need to be perpetually told.

      ES: Exactly. The other narratives have a kind of permanence or institutional existence and you just have to try to work away at them.

      SR: This is one of the things that you criticize from within Palestinianness: the lack of any serious effort to institutionalize the story, to give it an objective existence.

      ES: That’s right. It is interesting that right up to 1948, most of the writing by Palestinians expressed a fear that they were about to lose their country. Their descriptions of cities and other places in Palestine appeared as a kind of pleading before a tribunal. After the dispersion of the Palestinians, however, there was a curious period of silence until a new Palestinian literature began to develop in the fifties and, above all, the sixties. Given the size of this achievement, it is strange that no narrative of Palestinian history has ever been institutionalized in a definitive masterwork. There never seems to be enough time, and one always has the impression that one’s enemy—in this case the Israelis—are trying to take the archive away. The gravest image for me in 1982 was of the Israelis shipping out the archives of the Palestine Research Centre in Beirut to Tel Aviv."

      he's not sharqiyan and neither is this guy but check it out, could help with the whiteness, and this concludes the sharqian response. enjoy and Dizzy fight the white.

According to an eyewitness, Mr. Asim was subjected to degrading treatment while in custody: he was reportedly forced to strip and stay outside in the rain for several hours. Shari Al Kawasmi, a Palestinian detainee, reported that his 22-year old brother Hamid, who had recently undergone surgery before his arrest and detention in April 28th, 2002, has been severely beaten.

      According to the report, a Palestinian minor, Abdul Salam Abu al-Hajja, who was captured at the Jenin refugee camp, was subjected to sleep deprivation and long hours of interrogation at the al-Jalami detention centre, in Jerusalem. Several other detainees at al-Jalami prison have reportedly been subjected to torture.

    • this has good intro brief concise history, as to origins there is some argument but sprengling? is the guy who pointed out that some of the most important dai's were from the Tamim, Quraish and Tay, thats ultra-Arab, historically the Druze have boasted of their pure Arab origins, not intermarrying like the general Arab, with Turks, Persians and such, but as Mooser teaches the present changes the past

    • as to Arab society, one of the ways that people fail to understand the history of the middle east is by failing to grasp that it was not trouble in Islam but was Arabs revolting against their Turkish overlords, they never stopped century after century.

      that Arab revolt often had very important Druze elements, prior to the British the Druze had been ruled by Turks not Arabs, it was the general Arab condition.

      they shouldn't be called Druze because they rejected Duruz and went with the other guy but kept Duruz's name,

      Ahmed Pasha was non-other than Claude-Alexandre Comte De Boneval, he taught Ottoman soldiers mathematics

      one of Palestine's most noted nationalist poets was a Druze, he didn't feel protected you remember he was tormented by bats.

      and of course a General Arab knows only two dimensions what spreads out is a battlefield and whatever rises is a fort.

      "general Arab" society? of course now all specific Arabs are the victims of the mythical general Arab, the Arabs have been a colonized subaltern and resistant people for the last 1000 years or so, and come in kaleidoscopic array of flavours, and we know that we do.

      like the Kurds now the {insert sect} Arabs are now eternal victims of the Arab because no one bothers to attend to even recent history, a bedouin ottoman Soldier recorded the depredations of the Kurds (they Turkic, used to be Turks thus from the ruling sector of general Arab society) during the Armenian genocide Rayyan linked to it here years ago,

      general Arab society is a fiction I have never encountered it, but its a useful ideological tool outside that i can't see its usefulness, even the Ur Arab is hyphenated, all Arabs are something else as well,

      leading Arab nationalists came from the Alawi, Druze, Christians etc

      the west is obsessed with Arab sects which they are also determined to know nothing whatsoever about,

      anyway i am just talking nonsense because i give up, the Druze ruled Beirut and Sidon didn't they quite recently they were famous for not paying their taxes one Turkish ruler of Egypt invaded the Shouf and ....made them pay their back taxes, they recovered soon enough, sure though he was no General Arab that bloody Turk was doing the same to us, and we aren't general Arabs either.

    • "From a historical standpoint, as minorities within the Arab community, the “favored other” status in Israel is still better than the minority status the Druze historically had in general Arab society. Indeed, Israel serves as a sense of security the Druze people never had before."

      really?

      Fakr al Din al Maani et al?

      "Despite the small size of their community, the Druze have figured prominently in Middle Eastern history. During the Crusades, Druze soldiers aided the Ayyūbid and later Mamlūk forces by resisting Crusader advances at the Lebanese coast. The Druze enjoyed considerable autonomy under the Ottoman Empire and often rebelled against it, protected from direct Ottoman control by the mountainous terrain of their homelands. From the 16th to the 19th century, a series of powerful feudal lords dominated Druze political life.

      One of the most famous of them was the 17th-century ruler Fakhr al-Dīn II of the house of Maʿn, who forged a coalition with the Maronite Christians of the Lebanon Mountains and challenged Ottoman authority by allying with Tuscany. In the 20th and 21st centuries the Druze in Lebanon have mostly been represented in national politics by two families, the Jumblatts and the Arslans."

      remind you of Alexandre de Marenche, BCCI and the Safari club, plus ca change

      "The CIA’s Drug-Running Terrorists and the “Arc of Crisis” "

      "n 1976, a coalition of intelligence agencies was formed, which was called the Safari Club. This marked the discreet and highly covert coordination among various intelligence agencies, which would last for decades. It formed at a time when the CIA was embroiled in domestic scrutiny over the Watergate scandal and a Congressional investigation into covert CIA activities, forcing the CIA to become more covert in its activities.

      In 2002, the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Turki bin Faisal gave a speech in which he stated that in response to the CIA’s need for more discretion, “a group of countries got together in the hope of fighting Communism and established what was called the Safari Club. The Safari Club included France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Iran [under the Shah].

      ”[1] However, “The Safari Club needed a network of banks to finance its intelligence operations. With the official blessing of George H.W. Bush as the head of the CIA,” Saudi intelligence chief, Kamal Adham, “transformed a small Pakistani merchant bank, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), into a world-wide money-laundering machine, buying banks around the world to create the biggest clandestine money network in history.”[2]

      As CIA director, George H.W. Bush “cemented strong relations with the intelligence services of both Saudi Arabia and the shah of Iran. He worked closely with Kamal Adham, the head of Saudi intelligence, brother-in-law of King Faisal and an early BCCI insider.” Adham had previously acted as a “channel between [Henry] Kissinger and [Egyptian President] Anwar Sadat” in 1972. In 1976, Iran, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia formed the Safari Club “to conduct through their own intelligence agencies operations that were now difficult for the CIA,” which was largely organized by the head of French intelligence, Alexandre de Marenches.[3]

      The “Arc of Crisis” and the Iranian Revolution

      When Jimmy Carter became President in 1977, he appointed over two-dozen members of the Trilateral Commission to his administration, which was an international think tank formed by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller in 1973. Brzezinski had invited Carter to join the Trilateral Commission, and when Carter became President, Brzezinski became National Security Adviser; Cyrus Vance, also a member of the Commission, became Secretary of State; and Samuel Huntington, another Commission member, became Coordinator of National Security and Deputy to Brzezinski. Author and researcher Peter Dale Scott deserves much credit for his comprehensive analysis of the events leading up to and during the Iranian Revolution in his book, “The Road to 9/11”,* which provides much of the information below."

      you wrote

      "with the deliberate intention of increasing civilian casualties among their own people."

      so and Arabic is fine do you have the Hamas policy statement indicating that this is their deliberate "strategy" (tactic would have been better) why do you insist on making a fool of yourself, extraordinary claims Jon require just a little evidence and your own self serving lying interpretations and 'memory' don't really cut it.

      do you remember the missiles being loaded on a red crescent ambulance (stretchers), Gaza in under a suffocating cloud of drones, do you not see that your claim can not be proven, because its ridiculous,

      If you are unable to see that in your second para you are repeating a self serving racist slur on a par with Golda's 'if they loved their children' crap and as free of evidence as same, Hamas don't use their extensive military bases to launch missions, the PAF is still on the ground because they don't exist, like the evidence to back either of your claims,

      "In our view the man who rapes a woman, regardless of whether she is a virgin or not, if she is a free woman he must pay a "dowry" like that of her peers, and if she is a slave he must pay whatever has been detracted from her value. The punishment is to be carried out on the rapist and there is no punishment for the woman who has been raped, whatever the case. (Imam Malik, Al-Muwatta', Volume 2, page 734)"

      and

      ""If a man acquires by force a slave-girl, then has sexual intercourse with her after he acquires her by force, and if he is not excused by ignorance, then the slave-girl will be taken from him, he is required to pay the fine, and he will receive the punishment for illegal sexual intercourse." (Imam Al Shafi'i, Kitabul Umm, Volume 3, page 253)"

      and this is only Umar

      "In an authentic narration from Sunan Al Bayhaqi, Volume 2, page 363, Hadith no. 18685 we read the following story:

      Abu al-Hussain bin al-Fadhl al-Qatan narrated from Abdullah bin Jaffar bin Darestweh from Yaqub bin Sufyan from al-Hassab bin Rabee from Abdullah bin al-Mubarak from Kahmas from Harun bin Al-Asam who said: Umar bin al-Khatab may Allah be pleased with him sent Khalid bin al-Walid in an army, hence Khalid sent Dharar bin al-Auwzwar in a squadron and they invaded a district belonging to the tribe of Bani Asad. They then captured a pretty bride, Dharar liked her hence he asked his companions to grant her to him and they did so. He then had sexual intercourse with her, when he completed his mission he felt guilty, and went to Khalid and told him about what he did. Khalid said: 'I permit you and made it lawful to you.' He said: 'No not until you write a message to Umar'. (Then they sent a message to Umar) and Umar answered that he (Dharar) should be stoned. By the time Umar's message was delivered, Dharar was dead. (Khalid) said: 'Allah didn't want to disgrace Dharar'

      Notice that Umar ibn Al Khattab (the second caliph) ordered the man who captured the slave girl and had sex with her to be stoned for this crime, for he took the slave girl unjustly."

      oh ok an actual hadith then

      "Saheeh Muslim

      Book 015, Number 4082:

      Hilal b. Yasaf reported that a person got angry and slapped his slave-girl. Thereupon Suwaid b. Muqarrin said to him: You could find no other part (to slap) but the prominent part of her face. See I was one of the seven sons of Muqarrin, and we had but only one slave-girl. The youngest of us slapped her, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) commanded us to set her free.

      Book 015, Number 4086

      Abu Mas'ud al-Badri reported: "I was beating my slave with a whip when I heard a voice behind me: Understand, Abu Masud; but I did not recognise the voice due to intense anger. He (Abu Mas'ud) reported: As he came near me (I found) that he was the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and he was saying: Bear in mind, Abu Mas'ud; bear in mind. Abu Mas'ud. He (Aba Maslad) said: threw the whip from my hand. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Bear in mind, Abu Mas'ud; verily Allah has more dominance upon you than you have upon your slave. I (then) said: I would never beat my servant in future."

      the Rabbi going to be in shit come Judgement.
