This article can be described as inflammatory, angry, and a list of other adjectives. Many Westerners cannot consider whether what is in it is true because, they cant get past its harshness and definitive statements that go against their egalitarian and relativist worldviews. They will immediately say I know many peaceful Muslims. We too know many peaceful Muslims. We would perhaps argue (like this author) that they are not good Muslims. In other words, our problem is not with Muslims (the branch), but rather with the Quran and Hadith (the root).
For example, where did Jihad come from. Is it something that misguided, off target Muslims dreamed up or does it have a root in Islam?
Well besides all the verses in Quran and Hadith on Jihad, Muslims are being obedient in following Muhammed.
Did you know that Muhammad was a warrior? Did you know that all 67 out of the 68 wars of Muhammad were offensive. They are called qazwah (raid, ambush, sudden attack). That is how Muhammad waged his wars. He raided, massacred and looted civilians with no warning. The one defensive war, ‘ditch’ was not fought. That is why the Islamic terrorism ‘jihad’ will continue until the West “offers peace” or that because of disincentives the radicals decide to table Jihad as one of their weapons for the moment.
What we would challenge people to do is to decide if the statements contained in this article are true or false. Then, proceed from there.
Being in the business of supporting and sustaining the persecuted Church around the world we are well acquainted with Islam and its practices. Specifically, its treatment (ordained by the Quran and Hadith) of believers from other religions. In fact, much of the persecution of Christians around the world comes from peace loving Muslims.
The challenge we face as Christians is to expose the evils of Islam and yet not hate Muslims. Jesus calls us to love our enemies. He also says the truth will set us free. While He was speaking of Himself, there is much to be said about taking that verse literally when dealing with Islam. So let us hold onto love and hold onto the truth and see where it takes us.
Ignorance, the Greatest Threat Facing
By: Amil Imani
The intention of this article is to provoke a much needed debate on the nature of a phenomenon called Islamic Terrorism. Most people in
The word Islam means submission. One may ask submission to what or whom? A Muslim is a person who is obedient to the will of Allah. According to the words of the Prophet of Islam, Allah is the author of the Quran, thus a Muslim is a person who must do what the book says. If he or she does not follow the Quran, he or she is not considered to be a Muslim. Muslims insist that the almighty Lord of all living things is synonymous with what is known in Arabic as Allah. Muslims confess that every word in the Quran is the word of Allah. It contains 114 Surahs (chapters) and over 6000 verses. Ironically, the greatest enemy of Islam is this very book which Muslims vow to be pure from errors.
Islamic scholars proudly state that the Quran is unrivalled in its recording and preservation. They proudly say that the holy book has remained unchanged even to a dot over the past fourteen hundred years. However, they won’t allow any one to question any parts of it. Questioning any part of the holy book will result in death. As we have witnessed, the Islamic zealots do not tolerate opinions contrary to their own. For Qurans teachings you may go to http://www.faithfreedom.org/Quran.htm.
Nowadays, we hear from the Muslim apologists that Islam has been hijacked by the militant Muslims. Even some Americans utter the same thing. Muslims keep repeating that Islam means peace, something my American friends say as well. In reality though, Islam means war. It is through so many wars that Islam established itself as another religion. It is through fear, intimidation and indoctrination of innocent people that Islam has made its loyal follower to adhere to this ideology of hate. It is through sacrifices and the killing of innocent people that Islam has lasted as long as it has. It is with the sword of Islam that people became Muslims.
There is no such thing called good Muslims or bad Muslims. Good Muslims are nominal Muslims, the ones who have never read the Quran and do not understand or do not want to understand the nature of Islam. They merely were born into a Muslim family. Those who think Islam has been hijacked by the bad Muslims are not true Muslims. Bad Muslims are those who execute the words of Allah. Therefore, the bad Muslims are the true believers who follow the path of the prophet of Islam. In other words, the Islamic Terrorists are the true sons and daughters of the Islamic faith.
Understanding what Islamic Terrorism is and identifying the signs or association with those who may become Islamic terrorists, may help us detect and prevent or capture the terrorists before they commit crimes against the innocent civilians. A better understanding of the true nature of Islam will alarm people of the dangers of Islamic Terrorism.
1-Islam rewards those who are willing to die for Allah. Everybody hates and fears death. Only those who believe in a life after death and its promised rewards would be seeking death.
2-Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.
3-If the unbelievers do not offer you peace (submit) kill them wherever you find them.
4-Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to hell.
5-Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom.
These are the messages of the Quran.
Everyone eventually will face death. However, the destination after death is not the same for those who believe and those who dont. Those who believe in Allah and follow what his messenger said will be in paradise. In other words, those who commit crimes against humanity, murder the infidels, rape little girls, burn the cities of disbelievers, hijack airplanes, fly them into buildings and bring down towers and cast terror in the hearts of people will spend their eternal rest in heaven. To top it, 72 virgins will greet them at the gate with a bottle of French wine.
For those who deviate from executing the words of Allah, an eternal blazing Fire (Hell) will be awaiting them. In other words, every good person, kind person, giving person and innocent person on earth will taste eternal fire.
Muslims still insist that Allah is the same as the eternal God, the Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, yet he needs blood and lots of it.
Since its inception 1400 years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literary butchered with the sword of Islam. Some may argue that all religions at one point in time have committed crimes against humanity. That may be so, but none of the existing world religions foundations have been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent victims. Islam lives, breaths and grows on blood. Once one takes away this red element from Islam, Islam will vanish completely. Islam cannot possibly live in the hearts and minds of its believers. Islam needs to shed the blood of the infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. Islam is about world domination.
You cant reason with people blinded by hate. You cant argue with people blinded by Islamic faith. Islam hates the power of the individual. Islam hates the achievements of women. Islam hates progress. Islam hates the religious freedom of others. Islam hates the pre-Islamic heritage of other nations. Islam hates the light of truth. Islam is against free will and hates democracy, liberty and justice for all. Islam simply loves to eat you alive. That is what Islam does and that is what Islam is. Worshipping that? NEVER!
Americans are slowly waking up from their long winter sleep. However, there are still millions of Americans who are extremely naïve about the dangers of Islamic terrorism. Americans are good people; they are sympathetic people. They are giving people. They like to see the goodness in human beings and for that; they unconsciously refuse to believe that a faith can make wild animals out of humans.
The greatest threat facing
No, Islam has not been hijacked by the Islamic militants. The cult of Islam has hijacked humanity for almost 14 centuries. Until we digest this and do something about it, innocent people, including Americans, will continue to die.
