The hadith Biden is quoting is this one: “On the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say, ‘Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.'” (Nawawi 34)
Anyway, note Biden’s reference to “the Prophet Muhammad.” It’s standard journalistic practice today to assume that everyone is a Muslim and believes Muhammad is a prophet, so Biden is just following along with the crowd and pandering to his constituency, but it’s still a manifestation of Islamic supremacism. Biden’s handlers would never, ever give him a statement that referred to “our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” But Islam is the Left’s preferred religion, and Islamopandering is the order of the day, so Biden refers without hesitation to “the prophet.”
As long as he is quoting hadith, when will Biden get around to this one? A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them…. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294)
“Biden quotes Prophet Muhammad’s hadith, wishes US schools taught about Islam,” Yeni Şafak, July 21, 2020 (thanks to Darcy):
Former American Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has vowed to address the needs and concerns of Muslim-American communities in the U.S. once he becomes president during an online summit hosted by the organization “Emgage Action.”
Biden’s remarks came on Monday after several prominent Muslim-American leaders endorsed him for president.
Praising Islam as “one of the great confessional faiths,” Biden told attendees of the Million Muslim Votes that he wished U.S. schools taught more about Islam.
“One of the things I think is important, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” he said, blaming President Trump for “fanning the flames of hate.”
“A hadith from the Prophet Muhammad instructs, ‘Whomever among you sees a wrong, let him change it with his hand,’” Biden quoted. “‘If he is not able, then with his tongue. If he is not able, then with his heart.’”
The 77-year-old leader vowed to repeal the Trump administration’s three-year-old travel ban that primarily target Muslim-majority countries, in what he described as “vile.”
“If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on day one, day one,” he pledged….
“Muslim communities were the first to feel Donald Trump’s assault on Black and brown communities in this country with his vile Muslim ban,” Biden added.
Denouncing Trump’s treatment of religious minorities, Biden promised to appoint Muslim personnel in his would-be administration and work with Congress to pass stalled hate crime legislations if elected to the Oval Office in November….
Biden wants schools to teach more about Islam, vows to stamp out “Islamic-phobia”
BY ROBERT SPENCERrepublished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:
I’m all for teaching more in schools about Islam, but Biden wants a fantasy version that is entirely positive to be taught, while I would prefer an accurate presentation that explains the theological and ideological roots of jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women.
Note also that he vows to end the “Muslim ban,” which does not exist. What does exist is a ban on immigration from several countries, most of which are Muslim, that cannot or will not provide accurate information about prospective immigrants. The list of countries was devised during the Obama administration, while Biden was Vice President. Most Muslim countries have no such restrictions.
“Islamophobia,” which is what the addled Biden means by “Islamicphobia,” is defined in the New York Post article as “prejudice against Muslims.” Prejudice against any group is never justified. All too often, however, the term is used to refer to honest and accurate analysis of the ways in which jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims. Biden would end all that, and effectively criminalize criticism of Islam, including all opposition to jihad terror.
I hope y’all will bake me a cake with a file in it.
“Biden wishes schools taught more about Islam,” by Kathryn Krawczyk, The Week, July 20, 2020:
Former Vice President Joe Biden received endorsements from several Muslim American leaders before addressing the Million Muslim Votes summit on Monday.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, and Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.), were among several Muslim American officials who signed a letter endorsing Biden on Monday. Omar’s endorsement was especially notable seeing as she was a big supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and continues to be a leading progressive voice in the House.
Biden then went on to open his speech with a request: “I wish we were taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” calling it “one of the great confessional faiths” that “come[s] from the same root” as Christian religions.
Later in his video speech, Biden promised viewers he would end President Trump’s ban on travel from several Muslim-majority countries “on day one.”
The Million Muslim Votes Summit is organized by Emgage Action, the U.S.’s largest Muslim American PAC. Hillary Clinton didn’t attend any Emgage events during her 2016 run, The Washington Post notes, and former President Barack Obama was “cautious” about doing so.
“Biden vows to end Trump travel ban, ‘Islamicphobia’ in call with Linda Sarsour,” by Ebony Bowden, New York Post, July 20, 2020:
Joe Biden railed against what he called “Islamicphobia” and vowed to end the Trump administration’s travel ban on his first day in office during a call Monday with the nation’s largest Muslim-American PAC — including anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour.
“If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on day one, day one,” Biden said during the “Million Muslim Votes Summit” call hosted by Emgage Action which endorsed his White House bid in April.
The travel ban signed by President Trump in January 2017 blocks most immigrants and travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.
But Biden didn’t stop there, also lamenting that US schools don’t teach more about Islam.
“One of the things I think is important, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” he said, while accusing President Trump of “fanning the flames of hate.”
In a rambling speech, the presumptive Democratic nominee also railed against what he called “Islamicphobia” in the call attended by a handful of Muslim political activists — including anti-Zionist Sarsour who told Americans to rise up against what she called a “fascist administration.”
The correct term for prejudice against Muslims is Islamophobia.
“Under this administration, we’ve seen an unconscionable, an unconscionable rise in Islamicphobia and incidents including kids being bullied in schools and hate crimes in our communities,” Biden said, repeating the misnomer over and over.
“He’s named people with a history of open Islamicphobia — open, straightforward, who have no business serving in high positions in our government — to key leadership roles in our Department of Defense and the US Agency of International Development,” he continued….
“Our community is committed to ending the occupation of the Palestinian people, our community is committed to Muslims who are oppressed all over the world,” Sarsour said, vowing to push Biden to support her anti-Israel agenda.
“We want to see Joe Biden in the White House but we also want Joe Biden to know that we will hold him accountable to our communities,” she continued.
“We will be at his doorstep to ensure that we are heard in this administration and we will fight for the things that we believe in and we are not going to end our work on election day,” she said.
Sarsour on Biden: “I want him to defeat Trump so we can mobilize our movements to hold him accountable”

That’s a decidedly tepid endorsement. But it makes it clear that Sarsour and the Islamic and Leftist organizations in the U.S. that support the “Palestinian” jihad (and the jihad elsewhere) will be keeping President Biden on a tight leash. If he doesn’t jump to do their bidding, they’ll turn on him, not with the fury with which they hate and wish to destroy Trump, but certainly they will have no sense of loyalty or trust, and not let him make him one misstep. This means that Biden in the White House will essentially be their tool.
“‘Nation’s Largest’ Muslim PAC Embraces Biden, But Activist Sarsour’s Endorsement is Tepid,” by Patrick Goodenough, CNS News, July 21, 2020:
(CNSNews.com) – Thanking a Muslim American PAC for supporting his presidential bid, Joe Biden said Monday he wished U.S. schools taught more about Islam, and pledged to scrap, on his first day in office, what he called President Trump’s “vile Muslim ban.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee gave a virtual address to Emgage Action, three months after “the nation’s largest Muslim American political action committee” endorsed him, following the decision by its first choice candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders, to end his campaign.
Some high-profile Sanders supporters in the Muslim community have not been enthusiastic about moving their support to Biden, as seen in a series of tweets later Monday by Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour, a controversial former co-leader of the Women’s March.
“I choose Biden,” Sarsour said. “But I choose him as my opponent in the White House. I want him to defeat Trump so we can mobilize our movements to hold him accountable and push him to do and be better. We can’t do that with Trump.”
Sarsour said most of “our people” backed Sanders in the primary “because he earned our votes & we need Biden to continue to do the same.”
She recalled that Sanders had addressed “the plight of the Palestinian people,” and had “vehemently criticized the Netanyahu Government, opposed the moving of the embassy [to Jerusalem], called for an end to occupation, a conditioning of military aid, etc.”
‘One of my avocations is theology’
Addressing the Emgage Action event earlier in the day, Biden began on a theological note.
“Look, one of the things that I think is important is I wish – I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith,” he said. “I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It [Islam] is one of the great confessional faiths.”
“And what people don’t realize – as one of my avocations is theology – don’t realize is we all come from the same root here, in terms of our fundamental basic beliefs.”
He thanked the PAC for endorsing him, noted it has launched a campaign aimed at boosting the Muslim vote, and made his case for why Muslims should support him over Trump in November.
“Muslim communities were the first to feel Donald Trump’s assault on black and brown communities in this country with his vile Muslim ban,” he said, vowing to undo the move “on day one,” should he become president….
Biden, who spoke for a little over ten minutes, accused Trump of “fanning the flames of hate,” through his words, deeds, policies and appointments, and charged that there has been “an unconscionable rise in Islamicphobia [sic]” under his administration….
“I won’t fail to speak out against the abuses of human rights including targeting for violence and prosecution Muslim minorities around the world,” he said, citing Uighurs in China and Rohingya in Burma.
Biden said he would work with partners “to meet the moral demands of the humanitarian crises in Syria, Yemen, and Gaza,” and would “continue to champion the rights of Palestinians and Israelis to have a state of their own, as I have for decades.”…
Sarsour, an ardent BDS supporter, took part in Monday’s Emgage Action video event, where she spoke about the importance of holding a President Biden accountable after the election.
“When Joe Biden does the right thing, you better believe Linda Sarsour’s going to say, ‘You know what? Thank you so much President Joe Biden for doing the right thing.’ And when President Joe Biden doesn’t do the right thing our community needs to come together and hold him accountable.”…
