|The Gospel writers have noted that Jesus called his disciples to a way of life in which any act of violence can be overcome by love. We must not return evil for evil, Jesus taught, but must return good for evil; we must not hate those who wrong us but must love our enemies and pray for those who hate us. The Qur’an never says this. Instead it explicitly declares that Allah does not love those who do not believe in him:
“For He loves not those who reject Faith” (30:45)
Although many Muslims become angry about anyone “insulting” their religion, but here is what the Qur’an says about Jews and Christians:Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! (9:30) (See also Bukhari 8:427), one of the last things Prophet Muhammad ever said on his deathbed was “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians.”)
Drawing a distinction from the Gospel writers are a few brushstrokes suggesting ubiquitous and intrinsic Islamic extremism and also let us keep in mind that the basic difference between Islam and Christianity is that only Islam has a tradition and doctrine that sanctions war against unbelievers:
“Allah, deal with the Jews, your enemies and the enemies of Islam. Deal with the crusaders, and America, and Europe behind them, O Lord of the worlds.” Ahmad Abu Halabiya
Hadith says that Muhammad believed rats to be “mutated Jews” (Bukhari 54:524, also confirmed by Sahih Muslim 7135 and 7136).
“To push the enemy – the greatest kufr – out of the country is a prime duty. No other duty after Belief is more important than [this] duty. Utmost effort should be made to prepare and instigate the Ummah [community of Muslims] against the enemy, the American-Israeli alliance – occupying the country of the two Holy Places.” Osama bin Laden
“Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. …Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors.” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
Complacency and appeasement on the part of the free world can only serve Islamic hatred. There is absolutely no chance for co-existence with Islamic dogma. All one needs to see is what is happening in Islamic countries. That is exactly what is in store for free people of the world if Islam is not held in check.
My fellow human beings, reforming Islam is not about prosperity, it is about the survival of the human race, and the ability for all non-Islamic ideologies to survive. However, in the absence of evangelism, and without the ability to reveal peace-loving belief to the Muslim world, people just don’t wake up and suddenly denounce it. Does a seed grow in infertile soil? The brave are the ones who enable personal conversion, not those who justify Islamic slavery by alluding to salvation in nations possessed by evil.
Our Western liberals who actively aid and support evil regimes are in fact “Useful Idiots” and their strange but pleased Islamist bedfellows use them as pawns. In the recent past it was the socialist evils of Nazism and Communism that also used Muslim hatred to further their goals. Apparently evil wears many masks.
Islam is not compatible with Christianity and Western morality. Currently, Islam has dominated American public life. Unfortunately, you can’t reason with people blinded by centuries of hate and violence. You can’t debate with people blinded by Islamic faith. Islam takes away the power of the individual. Islam prevents women from achieving of their potential. Islam does not believe in the religious freedom of others. Islam loathes the pre-Islamic heritage of other nations, as though, the world did not exist before the arrival Islam. Islam is an invader with its creeping Sharia law into our system of governance. Islam is against free will and disregards democracy, liberty and justice for all man.
A true Muslim does not and cannot believe in liberty. Everything is up to Allah, so says Mohammad. Everything that a Muslim does is contingent upon the will and decree of Allah. It is for this reason that the phrase inshallah (Allah willing) always accompanies any promise or commitment that a believer makes. By embracing Muhammad as the unerring and eternal emissary of Allah, a Muslim surrenders his liberty to decide for himself.
The Muslims’ surrender of Liberty is not merely a matter of personal choice. The Muslims, having abandoned their most precious rights, are out to make all non-Muslims also do so, by hook or crook. It is said that misery loves company. And the type of misery that Islam has visited on the Muslims and the Islamic lands is a rapidly spreading plague that must be resisted by all who cherish their God-given Liberty.
Until citizens, as well as other people of the world, must understand the threat of radical Islam to its society and culture is real. If we simply ignore this threat, people will continue to die in these sporadic attacks. Until there is a true understanding of this faith and a means to control its fire, we, along with other people will continue to die as a result of its teaching. There are many Maj. Nidal Malik Hassan, (who killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, and hurt 30 others) are running around in our country. But our “Useful Idiots” look the other way. America, the threat of Islam is real. Until the United States citizens understand that all violent Islamic fundamentalist groups and all devout Muslims wish to kill all non-believers, we will continue to remain at the mercy of the Islamic terrorists.
So, who is right? What are the facts about Islam and how does Islam impact the ever-shrinking village Earth and its inhabitants? Can Islam ever be reformed? What can the civilized world do to diminish this threat to its survival? How can we take out the militant Islam out of the book? Admittedly, this is a huge question and cannot be answered satisfactorily in one article.
The idea of reforming Islam is not new. Islam cannot be reformed. Keep in mind that Islam claims that it is the perfect eternal faith for mankind. Splits have occurred and will continue to occur in Islam. Yet, reformation has not happened in nearly 1400 years and is not going to happen. Islam is carved in granite, just the way it is. No change. Allah’s book is sealed.
About the only universal agreement that exists among Islamic authorities is that every word of the Qur’an is the word of God and is not subject to human modification, ever. The ‘Hadith’ also enjoys a similar sacrosanct standing. And of course, the faithful Muhammad’s conduct as recorded in the Sunna is the model to be emulated. Hence, one can pick and choose, but one cannot discard or revise any part of the scripture. For this reason a Martin Luther type reformation has not happened and will not likely ever happen within Islam.
Numerous people have tried it in every imaginable way. The Mu’tazelis tried it, the Sufis tried it, hundreds of old and new schools tried it and they all failed. Islam is not reform-able for at least the following reasons:
* At the heart of the problem is the Quran, Islam’s sacred book, considered as the literal perfect and immutable words of Allah.
* Islam is a perfect religion:
Quran.5:3 : Today have I perfected your religious law for you, and have bestowed upon you the full measure of My blessings, and willed that self-surrender unto Me shall be your religion.
How can fallible limited humans possibly reform or improve the handiwork of the all-knowing, all-wise author of the universe?
* Freedoms of all forms are anathema to Islam, which is squarely based on total submission to the dictates and will of Allah. Muslims must obey Allah and His Messenger.
Quran.33:36: And it behoves not a believing man and a believing woman that they should have any choice in their matter when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he surely strays off a manifest straying.
* Violence is part and parcel of Islam.
Quran 2: 216: Fighting is ordained for you, even though it be hateful to you; but it may well be that you hate a thing the while it is good for you, and it may well be that you love a thing the while it is bad for you: and God knows, whereas you do not know.
* Reforming Islam, requires discarding Sharia, but also purging the Quran itself from enormous suras that are not only patently false, but totally repugnant to a civilized humanity. This line of thinking, to sanitize Islam is explicitly forbidden in the Quran:
Quran 2:85: Do you, then, believe in some parts of the divine writ and deny the truth of other parts? What, then, could be the reward of those among you who do such things but ignominy in the life of this world and, on the Day of Resurrection; they will be consigned to most grievous suffering? For God is not unmindful of what you do.
* Islam is a super religion:
Muslims consider Islam, a super-religion and final religion of Allah. Judaism and Christianity are the only other two religions that are granted a grudging minimal recognition by Islam. All other religions and those without religion are blasphemy and blasphemous. In short, Islam is not reform-able. Reforming Islam requires purging of its sacred book, the Quran. By so doing, then, we have a different religion, not Islam.
Let us look at some other points by explicit provisions of the Quran:
* Islam is misogynist. Men are superior to women. Women are to obey men and are to be beaten when disobey or misbehave.
* Islam is racist. The Quran stipulates that the Arabs are superior to all others and it clearly condones slavery. It explicitly stipulates discriminatory laws for slaves.
* Islam denounces other belief systems and marginally recognizes the validity of only two religions, Judaism and Christianity.
* Islam is violent. It not only condones jihad, it recommends it and promises great reward for the jihadist.
* Islam is already splintered in a number of major sects and innumerable numbers of secondary sects that harbor huge disagreement and animosity toward one another as well as toward all infidels.
* Those who claim that they want to reform Islam, want to transform it by stripping it of a great many provisions that are anathema to civilized humanity. These people are, in fact, trying to make a new religion out of the old with no divine authority that was, supposedly, bestowed upon Muhammad to launch his religion.
If a reform should occur, the Islamic religious high authorities play a critical role in steering the masses toward or away from hate. The late Pope’s public pronouncement, for instance, absolving the Jews as the Christ killers has reduced anti-Semitism among the rank and file Christians. Fatwas—religious decrees—by Islamic Moftis and Ayatollahs carry considerable weight with their respective followers. Sadly, most decrees and adjudications of these high Islamic authorities are exclusionary and even hostile toward the out-groups.
These high divines are the suppliers of opinions as well as the teachers of the rank and file clergy who take the same ideas to the masses in villages and cities. Madresehs in Pakistan, schools in Saudi Arabia and Maktabs—religious schools—in Iran, as well as numerous mosques serve as places where the disease of hate can be transmitted with considerable success to the just too willing believers.
In Islam’s theocracy, religious authority is conferred by an informal consensus of the peer group. One becomes an Ayatollah, for instance, by demonstrating to other ayatollahs his undeviating devotion to the dogma they hold. If one deviates from the accepted line, he is not likely to make a village mullah, much less an Ayatollah. This is a systemic problem that is not amenable to change. It is a pathological theological inbreeding.
The Islamists, with the help of our liberal leftists, take advantage of the provisions of the most benign system known to humanity, democracy, to implode it from within. Islamists, by sheer numbers, will soon be in a position to vote out democracy in many countries and eventually in the U.S. They will elect Muslims to all positions of local influence, who will create and enforce policy according to the Quran. Once they have control over a town, they will begin to establish informal Sharia, and there’s nothing the government can (or will want to) do about it. Multicultural diversity is the elephant in the room allowing the ultimate incursion and inclusion of Sharia law into the United States government and into the way of our lives. To put it mildly and nakedly, the West is on the road to Sharia.
Sharia is the brutal means by which Islam controls its populations by force, intimidation, and punishments for offenses against Allah. Already, in many European countries, national governments have, out of fear, given Islamofascists the right to establish their own shadow governments within the borders of countries like Sweden, England and Netherlands where they can control their own populations without accountability. Proposals for Sharia are being taken seriously by Canada. Politicians, hungry for votes and devoted to the practice of political correctness, bend backward to accede to Islamists’ demands.
The current U.S. administration must represent the people of America rather than catering to Muslims and Muslim organizations and keep repeating the same mantra of its peacefulness while Americans soldiers die by the religion of peace. Appointing Muslims in high and sensitive governmental places is simply a risky business and a threat to our national security.
“In 1991, Mohamed Akram wrote a memo for the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood that explained its work in America as “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
One thing is certain, those who are not willing to speak up for fear of being called a racist or an Islamophobe or afraid of losing their prestigious jobs, should be discharged from their offices immediately. The lesson is clear. Beware of the liberal pacifists who live in our democracies. Knowingly or unknowingly, they serve as the greatest volunteer and most effective soldier of Islam. They pave the way for the advancement of Islam and they will assuredly be among the very first victims of Islam as soon as it assumes power.
