Posted August 28, 2018

I ran into a couple of posts from the G+ Community Islam: The Truth penned by Michael Lederman. I like Lederman’s post because he believes the information he provides about Islam is educational rather than confrontational. “Confrontation” is probably what I’m more often accused of because I can be a bit hostile by detractors of my blog posts.

 

For you Counterjihadists and Conservatives as well as you Leftist Multiculturalists and pro-Islam Apologists, prepare to discover the Lederman Education Program.

Questioning Islam

Islam: The Truth

Quran

 

Muhammad and His Captives: Massacres, Atrocities, and Torture

An important test of a man’s character is his conduct towards those who are weak or in a vulnerable position. In Muhammad’s case, the group to which this description could be most readily applied was the captives who came under his control when their tribes were defeated by the Muslims. Muhammad may have been teaching his followers to call upon Allah as the ‘Merciful and Compassionate’, but his treatment of those whom his forces captured was often exactly the opposite of these values. In this section, it will be shown how Muslim forces engaged in human trafficking, rape, torture and genocide with his full approval and sometimes active participation. It should be stressed once again that what is related here comes from highly respected Muslim sources and not from raving critics of Islam. Full references are provided in case you are interested in verifying the accuracy of what is being related.

Muhammad ordered the torture of a man who had custody of a treasure.

In the aftermath of the Battle of Khaibar, Muhammad was desperate to get his hands on some of the wealth of the Jewish tribes that were vanquished by the Muslims. So desperate, in fact, that he did not shrink from torture as a means of gaining information. Ibn Ishaq106 relates the following:

 

Kinana al-Rabi, who had the custody of the treasure of Banu Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came, to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, “Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?” He said “Yes”. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr Al-Awwam, “Torture him until you extract what he has.” So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud.”

Little more needs to be added to Ibn Ishaq’s account of this horrible incident and the way in which it gives us an insight into the character of Muhammad. Suffice it to say that lighting a fire on the chest of a fellow human being to satisfy your greed is not something that we would readily associate with a “beautiful pattern of conduct” (Qur’an 33:21107).

Muhammad “married’ a woman on the same day her husband and most of her family were killed.

As if the fate that befell Kinana al Rabi was not bad enough, Muhammad also had his wife in his sights. In line with the practice of the Muslim armies, the women of the Jewish tribe were captured after the Battle of Khaibar. One of his followers named Dihya came to Muhammad and asked:

 

O Allah’s Prophet! Give me a slave girl from the captives.” Instead of scolding Dihya for seeking to enslave a vulnerable fellow human being, Muhammad says: “Go and take any slave girl.”

 

He took Safiya bint Huyai. It should be noted at this point that the man who requested a slave girl was probably not looking for someone to clean his house. The Qur’an makes it clear that Muslim men are allowed to have sex with “those whom your right hand possesses” (Qur’an 4:24). What is in view here is sexual slavery in other words. Encouraged by Muhammad, Dihya goes and picks a slave girl. It is, however, pointed out to Muhammad that she was the wife of the, now dead, “head of the tribe of Jews”:

 

“A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! You gave Safiya bint Huyai to Dihya and she is the chief mistress of the tribes of Quraiza and An-Nadir and she befits none but you.’ So the Prophet said, ‘Bring him along with her.’ So Dihya came with her and when the Prophet saw her, he said to Dihya, ‘Take any slave girl other than her from the captives.’ Anas added: ‘The Prophet then manumitted her and married her.’” (Sahih Bukhari 8:1:367)

So on the very day when her world is destroyed by the violent actions of the Muslims (including the horribly violent and gruesome murder of her husband) and while she was no doubt still deeply in shock she is ‘married’ to Muhammad: The leader of the group who carried out the atrocities against her and her people. It is clear that she had no say in the matter. This is confirmed by the fact that Muhammad changes her name to Safiya, a humiliating word play indicating that she is part of the fifth of the booty that is due to Muhammad (Qur’an 8:41108). This is related as follows in Sunan Abu Dawud 2987:

 

“Qatadah said: When the Apostle of Allah participated in a battle, there was for him a special portion which he took from where he desired. Safiyyah was from that portion.”

 

It is interesting to note that the memory of the shocking and terrible circumstances under which Safiya was married to Muhammad lingered on in the Muslim community, often manifesting in questions about her loyalty. At least some members of the community clearly thought that it would be only natural for her to take revenge for what was done to her.

Muhammad allowed his followers to rape captive women.

In one of the most disturbing hadiths of the Sahih Muslim collection, some of Muhammad’s followers came to him with a question about the treatment of captive women. His answer was staggering in its callousness and its implications for later Muslim conduct during war:

 

“We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing “azl” (withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it (withdraw before climaxing), for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.” (Sahih Muslim 3371, see also Sahih Bukhari 34:176:2229109)

So here we have a group of Muslim men raping captive women while taking care to withdraw before they reach the point of climax. Instead of furiously commanding them to stop such vile conduct and taking the women into his protection, Muhammad cheerfully instructs his followers to do to the women whatever they desired! To make matters even worse, Muslim tradition states that the following verse of the Qur’an was revealed precisely to ease the qualms of Muslim warriors about having sex with enslaved captives:

 

“Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess” (Qur’an 4:24)

 

So according to the world of Allah if “your right hand possesses” a woman, sex with her is totally lawful even if she is married!

Muhammad participated in a massacre where boys were killed simply for having pubic hair.

In the course of his campaigns, Muhammad came across the Jewish tribe of the Banu Qurayza. This tribe surrendered to him. After being disarmed, it was judged that the men of the tribe had to be put to the sword. Muhammad declared that this was in line with Allah’s judgment (Sahih Bukhari 5:59:447110). He then proceeded to actively participate in the massacre of these unfortunate unarmed men. According to Ibn Ishaq111:

 

“The apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches.”

At least 600 unarmed males were killed in this way. It is clear that this massacre did not only include men of fighting age but also young boys. This is the testimony of a survivor:

 

“Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi: I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.” (Abu Dawud 38:4390)

 

The common response by Muslim apologists to charges related to this terrible massacre is to point to the alleged treachery of the tribe and to say something along the lines of ‘They deserved it’. This assertion can be challenged, but I will not do so here. I want to, instead, focus on the fact that boys of around 10-11 (the average age of the onset of male puberty) were massacred. The following questions should be asked to those who attempt to defend Muhammad’s actions in this instance:

Points To Ponder

What influence could these poor children have had on the policies of their elders that would justify their execution?

Why was such an utterly arbitrary measure (looking for pubic hair) used to decide who will die?

Is this kind of rough justice really what we would expect from a ‘perfect example’?

It’s in the Quran

Michael Lederman Owner of Islam: The Truth

 

You can post all the lovely portions of the Quran you like but we know about Islamic Abrogation and how most of these, if not all, have been replaced. Now let us not discuss what the Quran says but how Muslims, many of whom would find you to be less Islamic than they actually show the Quran’s teachings by their actions.

The fighting and killing in Islam. Well, let me tell you something. It is very interesting, really interesting that in the US we have a different kind of Islam. Muslim clerics in the US want to present to us a kind Islam, Islam of brotherly love, Islam of friendship. Is that the Islam in the Quran? It is not! The Quran is very explicit to tell the Muslims, “Go fight and kill.” And if we see a young man, 20 years, or 18 years in Palestine, and putting a bomb around themselves, and making a suicidal bomb, and kill himself and kill some Israelis, it is not an invention of the Hamas, or the Hezboulah, or anybody. It is the Quran.

 

The Quran says, “Go fight, fight, fight.” So if we want to see fighting, and the killing, in the Quran, let us read the words of the Quran. And I will begin with the words in surat Al Anfal, that is surat 8, and verse 65, “Oh, prophet Mohammed.” Listen, Allah is talking to Mohammed because this is what the Muslims believe. “Oh, prophet Mohammed. Urge the Muslims to fight.” What? “Oh, prophet Mohammed. Urge the Muslims to fight?

 

When Jesus spoke to His disciples, He said, “Love your enemy. Pray for those who persecute you.”

 

But here, “Oh, prophet Mohammed. Urge the Muslims to fight,” fighting is by inciting Muslims to fight.

 

And then, we go to another surat, and that is in the Quran, in surat (Al Bakara, that is surat number 2, verse 216, “Jihad (this is fighting, holy fighting in Allah’s name) is ordained for you, Muslims.” Now, if someone will come and say that those who are fighting, Jews and Christians are fighting then because they are fanatics, they do not know Islam. No! When I went on the national TV, years ago, and I said in very plain words, “If you are a faithful Muslim, you are obliged to fight Jews and Christians, because Jihad, the holy fighting in Allah’s name is ordained for you, ” you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which it is good, and that you like a thing which is bad for you. But fighting is ordained for Muslims.

Then we go to another verse, in the very same surat, in verse 244, “And the fight in the way of Allah (that is in surat number 2, verse 244), and know that Allah is all hearer, or knowing.” Fight in the name of Allah? Well, in one of my books I said that, if God is almighty then he should fight for himself. In fact, one time I talked to a Muslim cleric in Egypt, and he said to me, “If I had the power, I would make all Egypt Muslim.” I said, “But what mean?” He said, “By force, by sword. Fight in the name of Allah.” And I looked at him and I said, “Listen, your god is so weak!” “What?” “Listen, let us use our brains for one second, if you will. Who will fight for whom? The weak will fight for the strong, or the strong will fight for the weak?” He said, “Of course that the strong will fight for the weak.” I said, “Then, if God is almighty, He doesn’t need you to fight for him. Leave him to fight for himself. He can do it! But to fight for him, this is an indication that god is weak. Forgive me, but this is my understanding.” But this is what the Quran is saying.

Then we continue, and we will see, in surat(Al Taouba), that is surat number 9, and verse 29, you see, Allah is telling the Muslims to fight the Jews and the Christians in particular. Sometimes when I read the Quran I think, why didn’t he insight the Muslims to fight against Buddhists, Hindus? Why Jews and Christians? Whose wars? Well, we read in surat(Al Anfal), that is surat number 8, verse 63, no, I think I misplaced that. I’ll go back to that surat (Al Taouba), surat number 29, verse 29,

 

“fight against those who believe not in Allah; nor in the last day, nor forbid that which have been forbidden by Allah and his messenger Mohammed; and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth, Islam, among the people of the scripture.”

 

Who are the people of the scriptures? Jews and Christians. “you fight them until they pay the Gizia, the poll tax, the elevated tax, with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” This is very clear command for Muslims to go and fight Jews and Christians until they defeat them. And if the Christian and the Jew want to keep his religion, he should pay taxes to the Islamic government with his feeling of inferiority. I am a Christian but I am inferior. You, the Muslim, are superior. I am inferior. And you are protecting me, so I pay a poll tax, here is my tax. You buy your religion with taxes?

Well, I commented on that verse in one of my books, and I said, “You can exchange Islam with taxes.” It is very plain. Pay taxes, keep your Jewish religion or Christian religion. You can exchange Islam with taxes, money with Islam. And this is here, kill, kill, kill. See, and in many other verses, the Quran is saying what is the punishment of those who are against Allah and his messenger, Mohammed: to be crucified, to cut their hands and their legs, or to be cast away from the society. What kind of religion is that? Killing, killing, killing.

 

Killing is not an invention of fanatics. Killing is in the Quran, and I want to let, to get anybody who is really honest to himself, and tell him, “Tell me, don’t talk about friendship.” It is very interesting to notice one thing, that in one of the verses of the Quran it says, “Muslims, do not befriend Jews or Christians.” Period. But it came of the invasion of Iraq, of Kuwait. The Muslims forgot all about that.

 

And they came to the Christian country, to the US, and said, “Please, help us.” But the Quran said don’t befriend them, don’t ask for their protection, don’t go to them for help! How come that you are coming now to the US and England, and France, “Help us!” Because when it comes to politics, the Quran is forgotten, especially in the high places. And I want any Muslim to think about it seriously. This is not an attack on Islam, this is to open the minds and the eyes of the people to think. And I want people to think. God gave us brains to use it. And if I am not going to use my brain, I will give an account. If this is light I’d say it is light. If this is darkness, I’d say it is darkness. But to say that darkness is light and light is darkness, gray places, it is not that way.

 

There is killing in the Quran, there is torture in the Quran; there is much pain for the people living under the Islamic society if they are Jews or Christians. They are! They are always looked at as second-class citizens. And they don’t have the right to stand up and raise their head. They are inferior, and we are the superior, and that is it. I don’t think that anybody who reads the Quran could deny what I have said. I mentioned the verse, verse after verse, after verse. But let me tell you, I didn’t mention all the verse. There are a lot of verses that tell, that is telling the Muslim, “Go, torture, kill, go, fight, kill.”

Remember Holocaust NAZI Death Camps

Today – January 27, 2015 – is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the NAZI death camp of Auschwitz located in Poland. January 27 is the infamous day commemorated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

When he was 21, Ivan Martynushkin was a lieutenant in the Soviet Red Army, commanding a machine-gun unit. By the start of 1945 they had walked thousands of kilometres in Stalin’s drive to defeat Hitler, in this war where civilians suffered untold brutalities.

On January 27 the troops were in Poland.

Martynushkin: “We were moving around Krakow. We didn’t know a thing about any concentration camps in Auschwitz. Our unit had just been told to go to a certain line and set up our position. After …

 
Auschwitz was the worst death toll of murdered people under the German NAZI superiority policy:
 
… A complex of camps, Auschwitz included a concentration camp, killing center, and forced-labor camps. It was located 37 miles west of Krakow (Cracow), near the prewar German-Polish border.
 
… Nearly 60,000 prisoners were forced to march west from the Auschwitz camp system. Thousands had been killed in the camps in the days before these death marches began. Tens of thousands of prisoners, mostly Jews, were forced to march to the city of Wodzislaw in the western part of Upper Silesia. SS guards shot anyone who fell behind or could not continue. Prisoners also suffered from the cold weather, starvation, and exposure on these marches. More than 15,000 died during the death marches from Auschwitz. On January 27, 1945, the Soviet army entered Auschwitz and liberated more than 7,000 remaining prisoners, who were mostly ill and dying. It is estimated that at minimum 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz between 1940 and 1945; of these, at least 1.1 million were murdered.
 
 
The Holocaust was a horrific occurrence aimed primarily Jews but also included Gypsies (Romani), homosexuals, various Slavs and the physically and mentally challenged. Here is a Youtube video showing explicit original filmography of Holocaust survivors (a little than 14 minutes):

[Work Will Set You Free]

Auschwitz gate - Arbeit Macht Frei
 
“Work will set you free.” This was above the gate at Auschwitz 1. Why do we remember what has happened so long ago? Why do we explore the evil that exists in the minds of men? Because to forget is to lose the ability to learn from history. History has a habit of repeating itself. If we, as a people, do not learn from the history we are doomed to repeat it, be it good or bad.

 

On January 27th, 1945, Soviet troops of the First Army of the Ukrainian Front, happened upon the gates of Auschwitz. Auschwitz is a name that is synonymous with the evil that was Nazi Germany. What horrors were found by the troops as they and other allied units came upon camp after camp established by the SS to deal with those that were deemed “racially undesirable.” Those who had been left as ‘survivors’ were nothing but walking skeletons. Emaciated human beings, some with blank stares, with obvious signs of disease present.

The bodies of those who died horrible inhuman deaths were stacked like cord wood. Other victims, in mass graves bore witness to the inhumanity that was suffered by so many. The stench of the living, and of the dead. Seeing for themselves the inhumanity that was perpetrated on others because they were deemed inferior because of their race, religion, and other reasons that marked them as needing to be eradicated from the earth.

Information had leaked out as early as 1942 if not before that these camps were operating in the countries of Europe under German occupation. “Relocation” of whole families from throughout Europe meant that many would be used as slave labor, horrible experiments such as what was done by SS officers such as Joseph Mengele. As one of many camps that the Germans established as a place to carry out the “final solution” in the extermination of those the Nazis deemed substandard.

Many camps, including Auschwitz, were located in the country of Poland. The deaths of Jews, Gypsies, and those who were deemed “racially undesirable” from throughout Europe, met evil at the hands of those who hated them. Some were dissidents who objected to the evils of the Nazis. Some were mentally unfit, the physically handicapped. Some died because of ethnic origins.

 
Anne Frank, a German born Jew who had lived in the Netherlands for most of her life and her sister Margo existed in the horrors ofAnne Frank Auschwitz, were evacuated to another camp in late 1944 and died just weeks prior to the liberation of the camps throughout Europe. 

Approximately 1,200 camps were running throughout Europe. Some camps had sub-camps, camps such as Auschwitz had areas that were for the slave labor and other areas for the extermination of of those who were too young or too old to be of use. An estimated 15 to 20 million people were interned in the camps, many of them never experienced freedom again. Auschwitz was just one camp, but represents through its name what we know of that era. 

We are now living in a time when we see a repeating hatred of Jews. The anti-Semitic rhetoric we are seeing now in countries across the world including in our own country is disheartening. It exhibits that the memories of what happened not so long ago are not being remembered by our civilization. That we have forgotten the horrors of not only WWII but other times of persecution of people. After WWII many said we will never forget. Then they said we should never never forget.

 Holocaust Survivors

Now it is evident that we have forgotten.  Many deny that it occurred, others say that they got what they deserved. Still others will say that it doesn’t concern them. Well it does concern each of us, and humanity as a whole. We should never forget what has occurred to millions of men, women and children starting as early as the late 1930s until the end of WWII.   

January 27, 1945 is a date that we should remember. January 27, 2015 marks 70 years since the liberation of Auschwitz. It is also recognized as the International Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust. For all those who died; for those who survived; we must remember! We need to educate those who do not know what happened during those years. There are many books, and movies that are recorded history of what was endured. There still are some who are survivors of a terrible time in history.  For all of those living and long dead, we must never forget.

 Mountain of shoes from Auschwitz

Shoes! Countless thousands of shoes that form a small mountain at Auschwitz. Those shoes are still there, standing as a mute reminder of the men, women, and children, that once wore them. Yes, the shoes remain long after their owners died as victims of the Final Solution. If they could only speak!

Editor’s [Danny Jeffrey] note… Want to know more?
The biggest prisoner escape of WWII occurred at the secretive extermination camp in Sobibor Poland. While no movie can accurately portray the horrors these people knew, this movie goes a long way as a voice for the dead.

The facts presented on this website are the Historical research and first-hand account of Holocaust survivor Thomas ‘Toivi’ Blatt, who escaped from the Nazi death camp Sobibor during the prisoner-led Revolt on October 14, 1943. The Sobibor revolt was the most successful revolt and escape from any Nazi camp during World War II. In his search for the truth about Sobibor, Mr. Blatt has extensively researched, investigated and written about its history – the results of which are also presented in two extraordinary books Sobibor – The Forgotten Revolt and From The Ashes of Sobibor. Additionally, the story of the revolt was told in Escape From Sobibor, the award-winning Chrysler Corporation film special of 1987.

Counterjihad Exposes Islam


Islam- What the West Needs to know

John R. Houk

© July 12, 2014

 

I am one of those guys that many would describe as a Counterjihad writer. Muslims and Leftists would look at the word “Counterjihad” and visions of an Islamophobic Muslim-hater enters into their mind. For Leftists and Muslims the word “Islamophobe” is meant to be a pejorative word to describe a person that should be reviled.

 

Here’s a thought that is sure to rile Leftists and Muslims: I do not view myself as a person that hates Muslims as people. It is true I do hate the religion that is known as Islam. As a Christian I am not a big fan of any religion that has an antichrist spirit about it. Islam specifically calls non-Muslims infidel (kafir) AND the Quran specifically singles out Jews and Christians as untrustworthy dudes worthy of death. It is true the Quran describes Jews and Christians as the “People of the Book” meaning the Bible. However, Islam teaches that the Holy writings of Jews and Christians are a corruption of Allah’s original message and hence an error that will lead to whatever Islam calls hell.

 

While Mohammed preached in Mecca before fleeing to Medina from persecuting polytheistic Arabs who were displeased about being told their pantheon of gods were non-existent idols and that only Allah is worthy of worship. Mo’s followers in the early Mecca days ONLY numbered in the hundreds at that time. In those days of Mecca preaching he thought of ways to entice two of the monotheistic religions Judaism and Christianity to join him as the true prophet of Allah (God). It is one of the reasons you will read of Old and New Testament Patriarchs, Prophets, Kings, Jesus and Mother Mary as true Muslims. In other words Mo stole the content of the Holy Bible and rewrote (or retold) them from a perspective that favors Arab superiority and indicating the Holy Bible had become corrupted from the truth. Unfortunately for Mo Jews were already pros at having kings and nations trying to change their Judaic faith typically in not a nice way. Christians had become the dominant religion of the Middle East by Mo’s early 700s; however they also experienced a bit of harassment from Romans trying stamp them out as not being Roman enough such as viewing Caesar-Emperor as a divine entity. So Mo had little success with getting adherents from Jews and Christians.

 

Thus as People of the Book, Jews and Christians were initially not to be recipients of the convert or die imperative. Polytheists on the other hand were to be completely reviled as idolaters worthy of death for not seeing the truth of submitting to Allah and the prophet Mohammed.

 

AS A CHRISTIAN I have a problem as being singled out along with Jews to be tolerated as long as I don’t practice my faith openly or don’t act out or say anything deemed insulting to Islam or Mo. The nail in the coffin of looking the other way to Islam is that religion’s treatment of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

 

Mo steals Jesus as one of the great prophets just before Mo’s revelation. Furthermore Mo denies the death on the Cross, burial and the Resurrection all occurred within three days. AND Mo tells his followers specifically that Jesus was just a man the human son of Mary and not the Son of God both equally man and equally God as the third person of the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit as three persons and ONE God simultaneously.

 

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

 

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. (1 John 4: 1-6 NKJV)

 

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend[a] it.

 

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son,[a] who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. (John 1: 1-5, 14, 18 NKJV)

 

30 I and My Father are one.”

 

Renewed Efforts to Stone Jesus

 

31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”

 

33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.”

 

34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’?[a] 35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe[b] that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”39 Therefore they sought again to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand. (John 10: 30-39 NKJV)

 

13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. (1 John 4: 13-15 NKJV)

 

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”[a] (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”[b] 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”[c] (Romans 8-13 NKJV)

 

30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. (John 20: 30 NKJV)

 

Now I realize a Muslim devoted to the Quran will quote suras in an attempt to show the Holy Bible is corrupted in the same way I quote the Bible to the Quran is an antichrist document. Yet here’s the thing to think about. The Lord Jesus of the Bible asks those who believe in Him to share and not coerce or threaten. If you freely and willing choose to believe that Jesus is the Christ (the anointed ONE of God) and the Son of God the new believer has life in the name of Jesus.

 

Islam does not mean peace as apologists and propagandists tell us non-Muslims. The true meaning of Islam is submission. The context of Islamic submission is the acceptance of the way of life as governed by Sharia Law. What this means for a non-Muslim none of the benefits Islam defines for its adherents is applicable to the non-Muslim. If you are lucky enough to be a part of the People of the Book there are a set rules that are acceptable for a non-Muslim to live under. PRIMARILY even as a non-Muslim you must submit or face severe consequences. This means especially in a Muslim dominated society the severe consequences is usually death. And even a Muslim nation’s authorities fail to enforce these consequences many interpret the Quran, Hadith and Sira (Sunna) to allow Muslims not associated with law enforcement to exact the consequence of death themselves.

 

That friends (and enemies) is the difference between “believe” and “submit”. I will never submit to the directives of Islam.

 

I have to go back to the pejorative meant term of Islamophobe. My Christian faith precludes me to hate people whether believing Christians or non-believers in the Risen Savior. Admittedly my particular personality places me in a position that challenges me to prevent being angry at unjust people. I too often find myself in the position of having to repent from not nice thoughts I may place into unseemly words. I pretty much have overcome the urge to express violence toward ideological idiots and antichrist-minded individuals. In writing this full disclosure I rarely hold back in denouncing Left Wing ideologies, overtly antichrist religious individuals and venom spewing antichrist atheists. BUT I will never make plans to harm individuals or groups of people for their open thoughts. On the other hand I am a firm believer in self-defense.  I will not be a doormat rug in which individuals violently stomp me down and I will call for duly representative authorities to protect the public good from violent individuals or groups of peoples. God has ordained authorities to exist to protect law abiding Christians.

 

1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. (Romans 13: 1-7 NKJV)

 

The term Islamophobe used as a pejorative although accepted today is actually greatly misused. In breaking the word down Islam refers to the religion and phobe comes from phobia. Phobia means fear. Thus Islamophobia really means an unnatural fear of Islam.

 

1. I do not fear the religion of Islam, I loathe it.

 

2. Neither do I have an unnatural fear of the adherents of Islam i.e. Muslims. Rather I feel sorry for them for being blinded by an antichrist spirit and thus pray for the eyes of their understanding become enlightened.

 

3. I have no problem with defending myself from adherents of Islam when they embark in acting nutso-crazy.

 

4. I have no problem with the ordained authorities to use lethal force against the perpetrators of violence and the protectors of the violent whether it be civil police or the duly trained military.

 

Points three and four will undoubtedly be twisted by Leftists and Muslim apologists will harangue me for being an unchristian hypocrite. I do disagree. I do believe in the principle of turning the other cheek and the Christian Golden Rule of doing for others as you would have them do for you. Turning the other cheek does not mean being an unwilling target for violence when God has ordained the authorities of a government exist by the Hand of God to protect me with the rule of law. Turning the other cheek has is designed for insults and individuals that desire to brawl. Insults are provocative and brawling indicates participating in a heated argument between an individual and/or individuals. Turning the other cheek does not mean putting yourself in a position to be a victim of crime, terrorism and war between nations.

 

Another accusation delivered by Leftists and Muslim apologists is the documented history of nations that have called themselves Christian perpetrating atrocities in the name of Christ. Trust me there are plenty of examples of atrocities committed in the name of Christ. The two most common by Muslim apologists seem to be the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition.

 

History shows the Crusades being initiated by Pope Urban II under the reasoning that Muslims were attacking Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land and Byzantine Emperor Alexius I Comnenus asked the Pope for help. The Muslim Seljuk Turks had conquered the Levant and Anatolia away from the Byzantine Empire and was threatening Constantinople. The city built and named by Constantine that ended Roman civil wars and made Christianity the State Church after hundreds of years of Roman persecution of Christians. The Europeans that cared realized that Constantinople was a block to Muslim conquest invasions to Europe that would end Medieval Christian culture of the time.

 

The pride problem the Byzantine emperor faced is that Constantine was the leader of the Eastern (Greek) Orthodox Church which split from the Latin Churches of Europe largely over the issue of Ecclesiastical primacy between Latin and Greek Churches (See HERE and HERE). Frankly I believe Urban II was less interested in aiding Emperor Alexis I Comnenus and more interested in preventing Muslim lunatics from ending Christendom in Europe.

 

So Pope Urban II gave one of the most famous (or infamous depending on perspective) sermons of the Medieval Church inspiring European Nobleman from typically warring kingdoms (but French leadership) to unite and march to deliver Byzantine and the Holy Land from Saracen (Muslim) control.

 

There is currently a bit of scholar war going on pertaining to the actual historical motives of the Crusades but that is simply to weighty to address here. For the sake of clarification I’m on the side that Muslim conquest and raiding was more responsible than the politically correct historians that distort history to make it appear the Crusaders were marauders purely interested in unprovoked booty and land conquest.

 

No matter the perspective scholars promote there is no getting around the facts that all the Crusader incursions into the Holy Land was followed by the bloody slaughtering of Muslims, Jews and even occasionally Byzantine Greek Orthodox Christians. The atrocities occurred in the name of Jesus. BUT should we blame the Biblical theology pertaining to Jesus Christ as a part of Christian doctrine toward non-Christians? NOT AT ALL!

 

The entire New Testament is about sharing the Love of God to humanity to choose freely to be in Christ or reject Christ. There is NO WHERE in the New Testament that calls for the death or execution of non-believers in Christ. The treatment of rejection I think is best by said by the Son of God Jesus Christ:

 

15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but[a] have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

 

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (John 3: 15-21 NKJV)

 

51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”[a]

 

55 But He turned and rebuked them,[b] and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.[c] And they went to another village. (Luke 9: 51-56 NKJV)

 

Jesus did not favor destroying the lives of humanity that rejected Him. Contrast Jesus with the words of Mohammed for those who rejected him:

 

191 And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.

 

192 But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 

193 And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrong-doers.  (Quran 2:191-193 – Pickthal)

 

56 As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers. (Quran 3:56 – Pickthal)

 

89 They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor helper from among them, (Quran 4:89 – Pickthal)

 

12 When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. (Quran 8:12 – Shakir)

 

29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Quran 9:29 – Yusafali)

 

Well you get the idea. Mo is fairly intolerable to people who deny Allah and his antichrist prophet Mohammed. (Hat Tip: The Religion of Peace)

 

The next most cited accusation against Christianity is the Reconquista of Spain and the Spanish Inquisition. The Reconquista lasted 700 years with Isabella and Ferdinand delivering the final blows around 1492. Yes the violence and atrocity toward Jews and Muslims was horrendous. BUT again no, it is not what Jesus commanded to do. The reassertion of the Catholic Church over the land conquered by invading Muslims was just as brutal as that of the Muslims. The greater tragedy is that the Catholic Christians exacted some ethnic cleansing to rid Spain of the Jewish and Muslim presence.

 

The biggest losers in discrimination against non-Christians were definitely the Jews. After Muslims faced expulsion from recaptured land by Christian leaders, the Muslims ultimately had a land to fall back on for an Islamic way of life. Unfortunately for the Jews, the losing of a few religious related rebellions against the Romans between roughly 66 AD and 135 AD. Romans grew weary of suppressing the Jewish national identity in their own homeland; hence the Romans expelled the Jews. Thus the Jews were without their God Promised homeland until they were restored in 1948 AD.

 

Nations that called themselves definitely were not innocent of violence and atrocities. BUT I need to reiterate, atrocities committed in the name of Christ was absolutely contrary to Christian Scriptures.

 

On the other hand if you look at the atrocities committed in the name of Allah and his prophet Mohammed were executed directly as a result of the writings considered holy in the Quran, Hadith and Sira (and Sunnah a part of the Sira).

 

As far as religious atrocities go, Islam far outstrips all atrocities committed by any other religions that have had periods of intolerance. AND as far as the world’s major religions goes, Islam is the only religion that demands to make all other non-Muslim cultures and non-Muslim religions extinct:

 

These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad.

 

 

This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad. (Bold-Underlined emphasis is mine – Tears of Jihad; By Bill Warner; Political Islam; 3/3/08)

 

This is one of those posts in which my meandering thoughts could me a badly written unpublished book. I think you get the point. Islam as a whole is an antichrist religion bent on intolerant domination forcing society to mold its every action under the theo-political doctrine of Islam and Sharia Law. Islam is evil. Non-Muslims and Islamic adherents who do not see this are blinded be the Deceiver Christians call Satan.

 

I have to be honest. This post actually was to be an introduction to a short Bill Warner video posted on Political Islam entitled “Good Muslim, Bad Muslim” posted three days ago. The video is only four minutes and fifteen seconds long. The mini-lecture is there questions about a Moderate Muslim and a Radical Muslim or perhaps your nice Muslim friend as compared to the Muslim that wants to chop your head off for being a kafir.

 

Bill is sure to irritate Leftists, Muslim Apologists and Muslims who consider themselves law abiding citizens of the USA. Bill simply tells it like it is according to Islam’s own considered holy writings.

 

Astonishingly Bill Warner pulls out one nice Muslim’s name that is a loyal American, a Medical Doctor, who served time in the U.S. Navy and actively is one of the few Muslims of note that denounce Radical Islam as evil – M. Zuhdi Jasser MD. It is people like Dr. Jasser that I have wavered back and forth over years that Islam has a shot of abandoning the Mohammed of Medina and emphasize the Mohammed of Mecca before he went nuts with power. Then Bill Warner brings me back to the belief that Islam is unredeemable as a religion of peace and tolerance.

Good Muslim, Bad Person

Political Islam

 

A good Muslim is one who practices Islam. Since there is no unmitigated good in Islam for the Kafir, it follows that someone who practices Islam has no unmitigated good for the Kafir. There are good people who call themselves Muslims, but their goodness comes from something other than Islam.
