Muslim Cleric: “Einstein Was Muslim”


A Iranian cleric is  claiming that the proud Jew and fierce Zionist Albert Einstein was actually a Shi’ite Muslim. And not just any cleric. No sir. This genius is a member of The Assembly of Experts in the Islamic Republic of Iran, no less.

They steal everything else — so why not Einstein? It’s what they do, and while it may seem utterly and completely ridiculous now, so are most of the claims of Islamic invention. But in time and after repeating the big lie enough, it, too, will gain traction, much the way the lies about Jerusalem and Israel have.

It’s what they do. Falsify truth. Falsify religions. Falsify human thought.

Islamic supremacism on steroids.

Someone email this to the *ahem* esteemed cleric:

“Long before the emergence of Hitler I made the cause of Zionism mine because through it I saw a means of correcting a flagrant wrong.” (Letter to Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India, June 13, 1947)

Regarding “the nature of [the] Arab opposition. Though the Arab of Palestine has benefited…economically, he wants exclusive national sovereignty, such as is enjoyed by the Arabs of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria [sic]. It is a legitimate and natural desire, and justice would seem to call for its satisfaction.” But at the end of the first world war, the Allies gave the Arabs 99% of the “vast, underpopulated territories” liberated from the Turks to satisfy their national aspirations and five independent Arab states were established. One percent was reserved for the Jews “in the land of their origin.” “In the august scale of justice, which weighs need against need, there is no doubt as to whose is more heavy.” What the Jews were allotted in the Balfour Declaration “redresses the balance” of justice and history. Brush aside “the rivalries of power politics and the egotism of petty nationalist appetites” and support “the glorious renascence which has begun in Palestine.” (Letter to Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India, June 13, 1947)

“Iranian Cleric: Einstein Was Muslim, and So Is Relativity Theory,” Israel National News, March 9, 2014

An Iranian cleric has embraced the Jewish scientist, Albert Einstein, claiming he was actually a Shi’ite Muslim

Iran, which has embraced all things nuclear, has apparently decided to embrace the man who is seen as one of the fathers of nuclear power – the Jewish scientist, Albert Einstein, who was once nominated to be president of the newly-created State of Israel.

However Einstein, according to the Iranians, was no Jew; he was actually a Shi’ite Muslim, a follower of the eighth-century Shi’ite Imam Ja’far Al-Sadiq.

Iranian cleric Ayatolla Mahadavi Kani made the claim in a video that has been circulating in Iran. Kani, who says he is head of a group called Assembly of Experts in the Islamic Republic of Iran, cited documents that claims that Einstein converted to Shi’ite Islam, and that he got the idea for his Theory of Relativity from Islam. The ascension of Mohammed to heaven was “a process which was faster than the speed of light,” and it was from this story that Einstein developed his theory, the cleric said in the video.

According to the ayatollah, “Einstein said, ‘when I heard about the narratives of the prophet Mohammed and that of the Ahle-Beit [prophet’s household] I realized they had understood these things long before us.’”

Iranian clerics have made this claim in the past as well. In 2012, the late Ayatollah Hossein Borujerdi said that he had had a relationship with Einstein, who wrote to him that “Shi’ite Islam was the most scientific and just religion in the world.”

Albert Einstein, the German-Jewish theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, was offered the presidency of the State of Israel in 1952, even though he was not an Israeli citizen.

“I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel [to serve as President], and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it,” Einstein wrote, citing as a reason his discomfort with diplomatic matters as his main concern, and his age.

“I am the more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world,” he wrote in a letter turning down the offer. Einstein died three years later, in 1955.

    what’s the real name
    of allah

    • NoCrud

      Real, original name of Allah is al-ilah. Allah is a contraction of al-ilah. It meant Moon God, as proved by archeology.

      Muhammad was Allah, and Allah was Muhammad! There yuh go.

    I always had the impression Einstein was a gentle soul. That alone gives the lie to this hogwash.

    The only thing that travels faster than light is a muslim lie.

      LOL! Very clever. And so is your nickname. ;-)

  • Larry S.

    But Pamela is correct, If this Big Lie is repeated often enough, some people will accept is a truth. I have no doubt that those people will make very good Moslems.

      Of course. Expect one of them to photoshop a zebiba on his forehead and offer it as proof.

    Albert Einstein; 14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955 was a German-borntheoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics).[2][3]

    Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, in the Kingdom of Württemberg in the German Empire on 14 March 1879.[10] His father was Hermann Einstein, a salesman and engineer. His mother was Pauline Einstein (née Koch). In 1880, the family moved to Munich, where his father and his uncle foundedElektrotechnische Fabrik J. Einstein & Cie, a company that manufactured electrical equipment based on direct current.[10]

    The Einsteins were non-observant Jews.

    I wonder why Muslims are claiming that a Jew is a Muslims, hmm

    • guest

      With no education, they make up stuff. Like the koran, for example.

  • Lysy2

    With a name like Einstein… you’ve got to be a muzzie… :)

    • Gary Rumain

      It doesn’t take a genius to work that out. ;-)

  • Mark McDonald

    yea right and a Muslims was the first to sign the Decoration of Independence in The United States BAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Gary Rumain

      Yes, all 2 billion of them.

    • Gary Rumain

      Did you say decoration? LOL

        Q. Did you hear about the Muslim family living in the US who are making every effort they can to integrate themselves into the local community, thereby contributing to worldwide peace and harmony and a greater understanding of their faith?

        A. Nope me neither!

        • Gary Rumain

          Nobody has! ;-)

    • guest

      But thats what obama says……. Our muslim forefathers, etc.

  • Beth

    Oh fabulous! Let’s call out more famous Muslims… George Washington, Plato, Mozart, Da Vinci, Edison… Why not Elvis? Shakespeare? Christopher Columbus? Anyone else? Surely we’ve forgotten a few important names throughout time.

    • NoCrud

      The Muzlim Cleric? should go full bore and claim that Hitler was also a Muzlim. Think of all the Common Core textbooks that can be rewritten, reprinted and sold into the Public School systems… Problem is, though — we taxpayers end up paying for it.

    • guest

      They have a jesus christ. He is coming back with the 12th imam to kill infidels.
      Thats why o can call himself a christian. Small j and c.

    • Gary Rumain

      Neil Armstrong. Mucka, we have a problem.

    • Esteban Sperber Frankel

      You forgot Leonardo da Vinci, hahahahaha, this Ayatollah should go to a madhouse.

    • ZZMike

      Don’t forget – they also claim Jesus Christ, and more recently (since the movie), Noah. It won’t be long before we find out that Adam and Ever were Muslim.

  • JacksonPearson

    Other than death and destruction, is there anything whatsoever that Muslims have contributed to the betterment of mankind? Anyone???

    • Gary Rumain

      Suicide vests. Shoe bombs. Underpants bombs. These inventions usually kill other arselifters, which is for the betterment of mankind. ;-)

    • Larry S.

      Yes, Jackson-
      One could quite reasonably make the claim that Muslims contributed significantly to the advance of Europe by bringing zero …. from the Hindus, I believe. Of course, Europe proved it was possible to make something out of nothing …

  • Patti York

    He was Jewish. PERIOD!

    • Mark McDonald

      I think that the Muslims really wished that they were Jewish too

    Hey Muslims, you can have Glen Greenwald or Peter Beinart, but Einstein is ours.

      They can have Obama too.

      • H. Schalk

        I think he’s already one of them.

  • Charlie Hammer

    This reminds me of that line in the second Superman movie with Christopher Reeve. In the scene where Superman rescues the little boy from almost drowning at Niagara Falls, as he’s flying away you can hear a lady saying “of COURSE he’s Jewish!” (which was a nod to Superman’s Jewish creators Siegel and Shuster).

    The place where Islam was born has really not changed much since the 7th century mentally or culturally. The fabulous wealth that the oil that the West extracts produces for the Saudi royal family, allows them to hire Western expertise that with no exaggeration, practically runs their country for them. I know MANY ex-pat workers who function in different government jobs who tell me that without foreign expertise, the country would cease functioning in a week! A friend of mine who worked in logistics with the RSAF said that influential Saudi’s would get their moron family members jobs as “overseers” of the ex-pat workers. They could barely manage to sit at their desks and pick their noses for eight hours a day. When the oil dries up, the people of Arabia who aren’t royals are going right back to being Bedouin camel herders because that really is all they are capable of. And the biggest reason for this? Their backwards and repressive religion. Islam may have been state of the art in the 7th century but in the 21st century, it is about as necessary or helpful as a caveman banging on a pot like a moron. Islam, in it’s present form offers NOTHING of value to th9is modern world.

    The Muslims will only produce an Einstein when they make the much needed reforms to that very violent and repressive religion. This will prove VERY difficult as this book actively prevents this by warning that it is the literal word of God.

    It may take a few centuries before this happens. That is IF the religion survives that long. The 1.5 billion or so Muslims in the world are seemingly hell bent on angering the 4.5 billion NON-Muslims in the world lately.

  • ZZMike

    As they have produced nothing of value for centuries (where are the Nobel science prizes? Where the hospitals? Where the areas of desert reclaimed for agriculture?), they have to steal what others have done. We are not surprised.

  • Richard

    That’s true. Einstein became a Muslim on his deathbed. He was so impressed with the Quran that has revealed the Earth is Flat, the Sun moves around the Earth and sets at night in a muddy pool on Earth, that men cannot travel in Outer Space without the permission of Allah, that the flat Earth is covered by 7, (no less), “perfect” domed heavens all miraculously being held up without any pillars. So miraculous are all these things that, according to the Quran, even the shadows bow down to allah.

    But Einstein is not the only one to convert to Islam on his deathbed, so did Pope John Paul II, Napoleon, and just about every Nobel prize winner there ever was, who has died, (on their deathbeds of course).

  • ishkabibul

    They are getting -desperate -they are running out of discoveries -they apparently -discovered -Australia -America -the earth is -flat and now Einstein was a muslim -so -sad they can’t claim -anything ;

    What an imbecile!
