Qur'an 95:1[edit]

By the fig and the olive.

Qur'an 95:1 Notes[edit]

The fig tree represents Syria...where currently the sky-God's warriors are butchering thousands, raping little girls and imposing misery in the name of the religion of peace.

Qur'an 95:2[edit]

And Mount Sinai.

Qur'an 95:2 Notes[edit]

Mount Sinai is currently in an extremely unstable condition with various belligerent factions hoping to ensure harsh punishments for those who think they can get away with freedom of thought, of body, of expression, of love and all those other pesky decadent western poisons that the religion of peace say should be met with brutal suppression and violence.

Qur'an 95:3[edit]

And this safe land.

Qur'an 95:3 Notes[edit]

Yes. If there is one thing that is undeniably true in this book...it is the statement that Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and the Sinai are safe.

Qur'an 95:4[edit]

We created man in the best design.

Qur'an 95:4 Notes[edit]

Yes. I can look now to these lands and applaud their happy citizens for acting with patience and calm and difference and wisdom and dignity.

Qur'an 95:5[edit]

Then reduced him to the lowest of the low.

Qur'an 95:5 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 95:6[edit]

Except those who believe and do righteous deeds; for them is a reward without end.

Qur'an 95:6 Notes[edit]

Now or in the afterlife?

Qur'an 95:7[edit]

So why do you still reject the religion?

Qur'an 95:7 Notes[edit]

Stay away from those who don't buy this manipulative blackmail.

Qur'an 95:8[edit]

Is God not the Wisest of the wise?

Qur'an 95:8 Notes[edit]

I don't know. I can't tell you that until judgement day...and by then I'll be pretty screwed if it turns out correct.
