The enemy of Islam is information - Spread it! The largest Christian cathedral in the world was converted into a mosque in 1453.....The Turks, over the course of three centuries, pushed their way out of Asia Minor and into the Balkans, encircling and finally conquering Constantinople in 1453. Their conquest of Constantinople, the lone remaining bastion which had withstood their assaults in the Balkans, was one of the utmost brutality and viciousness. When the walls of the city were finally breached by Turkish cannon, the few defenders were overwhelmed as the Sultan's troops poured into the city. For three days, the troops were given free reign to murder, rape, and pillage, which they did with gusto. Men, women, children - young and old alike - who gathered in churches in that dark hour to pray for deliverance were mercilessly cut down by the Muslim invaders where they knelt. The Hagia Sophia, the Church of Holy Wisdom, the greatest work of religious architecture in Western Christendom, was defiled and converted to a mosque. An entire race of people, an entire civilization, were savaged, and the remnants brought into a slavery that was to last for centuries. In the 16th - 19th centuries, perhaps 1 million west European men, women and children were kidnapped (sometimes from their homes) by Muslim pirates and sold into torture, rape and slavery in the Islamic world....One of Islam's most revered modern scholars, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, openly sanctions offensive Jihad: "In the Jihad which you are seeking, you look for the enemy and invade him. This type of Jihad takes place only when the Islamic state is invading other [countries] inorder to spread the word of Islam and to remove obstacles standing in its way." Elsewhere, he notes: "Islam has the right to take the initiative…this is God’s religion and it is for the whole world. It has the right to destroy all obstacles in the form of institutions and traditions … it attacks institutions and traditions to release human beings from their poisonous influences, which distort human nature and curtail human freedom. Those who say that Islamic Jihad was merely for the defense of the 'homeland of Islam' diminish the greatness of the Islamic way of life." Islam is not a religion of peace. This is clear to anyone who reads the Quran or reads the history of the expansion of Islam.There is no moderate Islam.The Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, who said in 2007 in response to the term “moderate Islam”: “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” Islam was born with the idea that it should rule the world. Most people are simply unaware that Islam is NOT just another religion but a totalitarian political cult-like ideology, which compels its followers into blind obedience, teaches intolerance, brutality and locks all Muslims and non-Muslims in a struggle deriving directly from the 7th century nomadic, predatory, Bedouin culture.Islam means “submission” to the will of Allah and the teachings as depicted in the Qur’an which include jihad – the genocidal slaughter of infidels by the sword, killing by beheading, intolerance of other religions, as well as forcing submission to Islam. I have heard Muslims actually say the word "Islam" means peace, trying to put a kinder gentler wrapping paper on their horrible religion. Lesser educated Muslims sometimes claim that the root word of Islam is “al-Salaam,” which is “peace” in Arabic.The Truth:An Arabic word only has one root. The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” There is no disagreement about this among Islamic scholars. al-Silm (submission) does not mean the same thing as al-Salaam (peace), otherwise they would be the same word.Unfortunately, Muslims in debate or negotiations are forced to LIE to preserve Islam’s integrity. This noble Islamic activity is called “Al-taqiyya ”.It is the duty of every Muslim to strive until all governments are converted to Shari'a Law.Al-taqiyya is a policy whereby a Muslim may lie, deceive or omit critical truths if it promotes the spreading of Islam AND the conquest of the non-Muslim world. We know from Islamic history and by looking around us at the world today, Islam is not a religion of peace. The talk of Islam being the religion of peace is just talk."Jihad," while best translated as "struggle," as represented in the Koran and the life of Muhammad, means nothing less than organized warfare against unbelievers.According to the Concise Encyclopedia of Islam jihad means: "Holy war, a divine institution of warfare to extend Islam into the Dar-al-Harb (non-Islamic territories)." This is a driving doctrine of Islam that is responsible for its violent expansionist history. Muhammad was not only a religious leader, but a military leader who waged war against his enemies as soon as he had the means.Muhammad organized 65 military campaigns in the last ten years of his life and personally led 27 of them.Islam was established through force and bloodshed. Jews were massacred and exiled by Muhammad in Medina and Kheibar; their belongings were distributed among the “believers”, their women and children taken as slaves. This heinous act of barbarism was repeated time and again throughout history with Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and in recent years with Ahmedies, Baha’is and other minorities in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, India, Syria and everywhere Islam reined. Islam has long proven itself to be a religion of violence and hatred that commonly inspires its adherents to commit acts of obscene bloodshed and intolerance.The term "Radical Islam" is often used when describing Islam. It is a deceptive term in that it assumes there is a more moderate and peaceful version of Islam... there is not! There is only one Islam and it is at war with the rest of world for planetary control and domination.The vast majority of Muslims do not control the direction of Islam. They are not in control of their religion.The Radical Muslims are the true Muslims that dictate and control Islam. They are the ones that fight to get what they want based on Islamic Law. Fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history as they always have. It is the fanatics who march and protest. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. You cannot eliminate terrorism unless you eliminate the ideology behind it. It is time that we focus on the cause and not the symptom. The politically correct apologists for Islam claim that it is a “religion of peace” with the numerous acts of terror and murder perpetrated by Islamists being dismissed as the misguided acts of a minority. One must consider however that the majority of Germans during World War II were not active members of the Nazi party, were not waging war, and were not involved in the Holocaust. The leaders, though, were active members of the Nazi party, were waging war, and were involved in the Holocaust.Some Germans embraced a passive longing for Germany to be victorious; some few actually despised fascism, and some, an almost non-existent few acted against it. So it is with Islam and the Muslims.A man whose family was a member of the German aristocracy prior to World War II owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. "Very few people were true Nazis," he said, "but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen.......http://europenews.dk/en/node/46162 The Koran or Qur'an was written by one man in one life time. It does not confine itself to religion. It gives direct commands. Striving to institute Shari'a Law is a religious duty. Quran is full of violent and bloody instructions.The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.What Qur'an Teaches:
Quran tells us to: "not to make friends with Jews and Christians"(5:51), fight them "until they pay the Jizya (a penalty tax for the non-Muslims living under Islamic rules) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" ( 9:29). "kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (2:191), "murder them and treat them harshly" (9:123),"fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem" ( 9:5).
Qur'an:9:112 "The Believers fight in Allah's cause; they slay and are slain, kill and are killed."
Qur'an:8:39 "So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)."
Qur'an:8:65 "O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding."......Talking honestly and critically about Islam can be deadly because Muslims are the noblest of mankind (Koran 3:110), while we are pigs and apes (Koran 2:65, 5:60, 7:166), being the vilest of creatures who will burn in hell for eternity. (Koran 98:6) We are not only pigs and apes, but we non-Muslims are also cattle, no, we are worse than cattle. (Koran7:179). Muslims are required to fight and kill us non-Muslims, even though some Muslims might not want to. (Koran 2:216).Some will say these verses are taken out of context, unaware that Muslims are allowed to lie (Taqiyaa) to strengthen and spread Islam. (Koran 3:28, 16:106)…. This book is the very foundation upon which this religion is founded. This just doesn’t wash with the ‘peace-loving people’ rhetoric but it does begin to explain the motivation and the actions we see on the TV and now in our own backyards..... Apologists in the West often shrug off the Quran's many verses of violence by saying that they are relevant only in a “time of war.”To this, Islamic terrorists would agree. They are at war.Moreover, more than 4,600 terrorist attacks carried out since 9/11 share ties to Islam......Is this the Islam you believe in? Is this your Most Merciful, Most Compassionate Allah whom you worship daily? Could God incite us to kill other peoples? Please understand that there is no terrorist gene but there could be a terrorist mindset. That mindset finds its most fertile ground in the tenets of Islam. Denying it and presenting Islam as a religion of peace similar to Buddhism to the lay public is suppression of truth.I wonder when the world is going to wake up and respond to MUSLIM BIGOTRY! Isn’t it time that we stopped this pee cee game and start looking at the harsh reality that the problem with Islamic terrorism is Islam itself? We have two kinds of Muslims: Terrorist Muslims and ignorant Muslims. The former are those who know Islam well and live by its dictums. The latter have no clue about their religion and have an idealized image of Islam that has no bases in facts. Ex-Muslim Ali Sina : "Muslims are victims of a huge lie. This lie is the cause of terrorism, upheavals, barbarity, much bloodshed, dictatorship, misogyny, discrimination, human rights violations, poverty, backwardness and misery of a billion people and fear and terror for the rest."...... Wafa Sultan: ”If Islam really treated women with honor, we would see the positive consequences of that honor over the course of the past 14 centuries. Islam did not treat women with honor. On the contrary, it has distorted the concept of honor..http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/3065.htm Many Muslims claim that “Islam honors women,” just as they claim that Islam is a “Religion of Peace.” The truth however, is just the opposite. Islam does not honor women, but rather, holds their very lives in absolute bondage. Freedom does not exist in Islam. Only Islam exists in Islam.......... Men are superior to women (Surah 2:228, the Qur'an).This verse is the seed in Islamic doctrine for gender discrimination. There are many other examples of discrimination toward women in the Hadith...... Women are deficient in intellect and understanding (the Hadith, Al Bukhari Vol. 3:826).Men are permitted to beat their wives. (Quran, chapter 4, verse 34). Islamic law (Sharia) prevents Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men (al-Baqarah 2: 221).However, it permits Muslim men to marry non-Muslim women (al-Ma’idah 5: 5). The children of this mixed marriage are required to be Muslim. This is one aspect of the double standard of Islamic Sharia which discriminates against women. A Muslim wife is considered her husband’s property and sex object (al-Baqarah 2: 223). Islam forbids certain professions to women. A Muslim woman cannot become a head of state, a head of the armed forces, an imam, or a judge. There is no age limit for marriage of girls under Sharia.In the Koran there is no specific age of marriage... In many Islamic countries, child marriages are common practice. According to figures from the justice ministry in Morocco, over 31,000 under-age girls were married in 2008, compared with 29,847 in 2007.In Afghanistan, despite the law against child brides, more than half of all girls are married before they turn 15, usually to settle disputes.According to the “State of the World’s Children-2009” report, 63% of all women aged 20–24 were married before the age of 18.Every year in the Muslim world and in third world countries, some 60 million girls (often around the age of 11, but sometimes younger) are forced into marriages with older men (often around the age of 40, but sometimes older).Slavery is seen as a process that brings kafirs to Islam. "Islam does not prohibit slavery but retains it for two reasons. The first reason is war (whether it is a civil war or a foreign war in which the captive is either killed or enslaved) provided that the war is not between Muslims against each other - it is not acceptable to enslave the violators, or the offenders, if they are Muslims. Only non-Muslim captives may be enslaved or killed. The second reason is the sexual propagation of slaves which would generate more slaves for their owner." The text is plain that all prisoners of war must either be killed or become slaves. The ancient scholars are in full agreement over this issue, such as Ibn Timiyya, Ibn Hisham, Malik etc. Ibn Timiyya says (Vol. 32, p. 89).The Quran also instructs Muslims NOT to force their female slaves into prostitution (24:34). Islam is the only religion in the world that condones, even encourages, rape of female captives taken as slaves or held for ransom as a tactic of war and a reward for victorious soldiers who conquer "infidels" (Surah 4:24, the Qur'an). A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women since he “could be married to the woman he was caught with.Criticism of Islam is a capital offense, a death penalty gladly carried out by Muslims worldwide. .http://www.meforum.org/2646/worldwide-trends-in-honor-killings http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article- Children in the service of terror… Islamic terrorists are always looking for new ways to escape detection and carry out their attacks. One of their latest ideas is using children as suicide bombers. From Afghanistan to Pakistan, from Iraq to Palestine, [terror] organizations are recruiting boys (some under 15) and training them to carry out suicide bombings. Suicide is against Islam. Martyrdom is not."Suicide bomber" is a derogatory term invented in the West to try and describe what in Islam is known as a Fedayeen or Shahid... a martyr. The point of the bomber isn't suicide - it is to kill infidels in battle. This is not just permitted by Muhammad, but encouraged with liberal promises of earthy rewards in heaven, including food and sex.
Qur'an (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."
Qur'an (2:207) - "And there is the type of man who gives his life to earn the pleasure of Allah..."....
Although Muslims are to face the Last Day, where their time in hell is to be determined (with sins weighed against good deeds) Muhammad laid down an exception for martyrs - those who are slain in the cause of Allah - at a time when he conveniently needed them. They get the fast track to Paradise where they wait on the rest (Qur'an (3:169-170)).Additional Notes:
When a Muslim dies while attempting to advance the cause of Islam, including by warfare and killing, it is not considered suicide, but a glorious act worthy of a secured place in Paradise. When Muslim apologists in the West say that Islam is against such practices by pointing to the hadith that oppose killing oneself, such as Bukhari (23:446), they are being disingenuous. Muslims in the Arab world, who are less concerned about public relations, celebrate and revere suicide bombers, knowing that martyrdom in battle is glorified by their religion. As the Ayatollah Khomeini once put it, "The purest joy in Islam is to kill and be killed for Allah."
According to Muhammad, the only sure path to paradise is through Jihad.More than 95 percent of all suicide bombing attacks conducted worldwide are carried out by Muslim extremists.
