More Love & Kisses from the Religion of Peace
If there is anyone left who believes that Islam is “a religion of peace”, then read on. It is propaganda and a mouthing of the
government’s geo-political strategy to spout this nonsense. US
The following quotes are not from some wacko fringe of Islam. It is the core of Islam. These thoughts and the worldview from which they bubble up are quite normal within Islam. We know, we deal with Islam all around the globe where they persecute Jews, Christians, and your average garden-variety infidel.
Islam has always been violent. It is coded into the religion by way of the Qur’an and Hadith. No matter how many reformers come, the fundamentalists will always rise to the occasion to follow their prophet Muhammad who was violent and a murderer. We are not name-calling, these are historical facts. The Quran and Hadith themselves show this side of Muhammad.
Many Muslims don’t really understand who Muhammad was. Cases like this one serve as a wake up call to all Muslims that truly love peace and humanity to look objectively at the historical Muhammad and Islam itself. They either need to embrace Islam with all it’s murder, oppression, and violence, or they need to say enough is enough. No more oppression, violence, and murder.
Senior Muslim clerics are demanding Rahmans head for converting from Islam to Christianity. They warned that if the government caves in to Western pressure and frees him, they will incite people to “pull him into pieces.”
“Rejecting Islam is insulting God. We will not allow God to be humiliated. This man must die,” said cleric Abdul Raoulf, who is considered a moderate and was jailed three times for opposing the Taliban before the hard-line regime was ousted in 2001.
Government officials are looking for a way out and saying Rahman is insane and therefore cant be tried.
But three Sunni preachers and a Shiite one interviewed by The Associated Press in four of Kabul`s most popular mosques said they do not believe Rahman is insane.
“He is not crazy. He went in front of the media and confessed to being a Christian,” said Hamidullah, chief cleric at Haji Yacob Mosque.” The government is scared of the international community. But the people will kill him if he is freed.”
Raoulf, who is a member of the country`s main Islamic organization, the Afghan Ulama Council, agreed. “The government is playing games. The people will not be fooled.”
“Cut off his head!” he said outside Herati Mosque. “We will call on the people to pull him into pieces so there`s nothing left.” Raoulf said the only way for Rahman to survive would be for him to go into exile.
Said Mirhossain Nasri, the top cleric at Hossainia Mosque, said Rahman must not be allowed to leave the country.
“If he is allowed to live in the West, then others will claim to be Christian so they can too,” he said. “We must set an example. … He must be hanged.” The clerics are angry with the United States and other countries for pushing for Rahman`s freedom.
“We are a small country and we welcome the help the outside world is giving us. But please don`t interfere in this issue,” Nasri said. “We are Muslims and these are our beliefs. This is much more important to us than all the aid the world has given us.” Afghanistan`s constitution is based on Shariah law, which is interpreted by many Muslims to require that any Muslim who rejects Islam be sentenced to death.
Hamidullah warned that if the government frees Rahman, “there will be an uprising” like one against Soviet occupying forces in the 1980s. “The government will lose the support of the people,” he said. “What sort of democracy would it be if the government ignored the will of all the people.”
