The USC MSA database removed several hadiths from their database. One of them that has been deleted is this one:
Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
The reason for this removal was that USC said that this verse was racist, and advocated genocide.
The sad thing is that the MSA quickly relented and removed this verse.
I, by no means, advocate the message of the above hadith, but believe it should ultimately have been kept on the USC web page.
This is part of Islam's dogma. Muslims believe this. To know Islam, one must know all their beliefs. One cannot cherry pick what they like or dislike about faith. Otherwise, they themselves create a new faith, a new ideology.
Islam believes that the end of humanity will not occur until rocks call out to Muslims to annihilate Jews. (Coincidentally, Allah was the supreme rock god of the Kaba). This should not be hidden from the masses. Anyone who wants to make an informed decision about Islam should be able to find out.
Is a religion whose truth must be hidden worth believing in? If you do not know the tenets of your own religion, how can you expect to enter heaven and meet the 72 virgins?
Secondly, deleting this verse on a website will not make Muslims who hate Jews less aware of the existence of this verse.
However, deleting this verse on a website WILL MAKE MUSLIMS who do not hate Jews, ignorant of the brutality and cruelty that their religion advocates, and ultimately prevent Muslims, with common sense, from the requisite facts necessary to make informed decisions about their faith, and to question what they believe in.
But, then again, this may be part of Allah's master plan to prevent sensible Muslims from questioning their religion, and making an informed choice about their faith.
"O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith." (Quran. 5:101-102)
