And apparently, the group sang songs too. Check out this video from MEMRI:
‘Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jews, the army of Muhammed will return’
And what is so special about Khaybar?
Andrew Bostom writes:
Muhammad's failures or incomplete successes were consistently recompensed by murderous attacks on the Jews. The Muslim prophet-warrior developed a penchant for assassinating individual Jews, and destroying Jewish communities ”by expropriation and expulsion (Banu Quaynuqa and B. Nadir), or massacring their men, and enslaving their women and children (Banu Qurayza). Just before subduing the Medinan Jewish tribe Banu Qurayza and orchestrating the mass execution of their adult males, Muhammad invoked perhaps the most striking Koranic motif for the Jews debasement--”he addressed these Jews, with hateful disparagement, as "You brothers of monkeys." Subsequently, in the case of the Khaybar Jews, Muhammad had the male leadership killed, and plundered their riches. The terrorized Khaybar survivors ”industrious Jewish farmers ”became prototype subjugated dhimmis whose productivity was extracted by the Muslims as a form of permanent booty. (And according to the Muslim sources, even this tenuous vassalage was arbitrarily terminated within a decade of Muhammad's death when Caliph Umar expelled the Jews of Khaybar.)Gee, I wonder what they had in mind when they were singing that song?
That ain't Kumbaya, and no--these are not humanitarian activists.
And we know exactly what they were thinking while singing that song:
Technorati Tag: Gaza Flotilla and Khaybar.
