Three years ago I embarked on a quest with my mate Peter, to learn all we could about Islam BEFORE demonstrating credibility destroying ignorance in our various online comments and opinions. Neither of us wanted to be dismissed with the label of Islamophobe or told that we were taking Islamic scripture “out of context”. We have shared resources, literature, Islamic source materials, translated sermons, hundreds of subtitled videos of Islamic clerics, academics and jurists, read the works of famed Islamic commentators – past and present, found and digested hundreds of magazines, journals and newspapers written in English for Diaspora Muslims, attended lectures by visiting experts, listened to the words of former Muslims, former terrorists and Muslim leaders, spoken with reformist Muslim friends and kept abreast of all the political machinations involving Islam’s relations with the West, particularly the U.S., Britain and Australia, where we live. Being atheists and rationalists with science based educations, neither of us carried conflicting religious beliefs that might cloud our assessment of Islam’s fundamental aims and underpinnings.
Of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, 800,000 are illiterate and their knowledge of Islam is entirely based on the spoken word of family, community, religious leaders, etc. Of the 800,000 literate Muslims, a large number do not speak or understand Arabic, an impediment to a deep understanding of Islam, according to Qur’an scholars. A very large proportion of the global Muslim population, have only a very superficial understanding of Islamic scripture, commentary and law and are extremely vulnerable to manipulation, misinformation and self-serving, shallow or frankly false information regarding their religion.
When these facts are combined with the permission to deceive in the service of Islam using four distinct, named forms of deception that is unique to Islam, the religion becomes an highly effective form of propaganda, perfectly placed in adherents’ lives to bind them to the faith for life with guaranteed compliance with Islamic observance, law, political goals and social structure. Why is Islam so intent on living up to the meaning of its name…….”to submit”? Why is submission central to Islam and why is Islam so uniquely focused on becoming the one world religion, by whatever means possible?
Islamic Scholars and Clerics are universally obsessed with avoiding an open, honest discussion or debate about the ethical basis of Islam, its aims, the tasks that must be completed in order to allow Judgement Day to even be possible and the role of violent struggle and warfare as integral to the achievement of Islam’s central goals. The more knowledge one gains of the founder of Islam, Muhammad, the more understanding one gains of why this religion is fundamentally different to the other main world faiths. Of one fact you can be certain, Islam is NOT a “religion of peace” and Muhammad was definitely not an average man.
Regarded by Muslims as “the perfect man” in every way, from how he ate and dressed to his morals and ethics, the reality is that Muhammad’s life was characterised by behaviour indicative of severe psychopathy. Despite a myriad of excuses offered by Islamic apologists, Muhammad’s actions in the area of matrimony and sex offer proof of his total disregard for the lives and rights of other human beings. He displayed narcissism and egocentrism on a grand scale and used violence or threats of violence and death to control his followers. The violence he perpetrated and mandated as required for punishment for any protest or non-compliance, was extraordinarily depraved and is probably best known in our lifetimes in the depravity of ISIS, the NAZIS, STALIN & other TYRANTS and DICTATORS.
Muhammad had 11 wives and many concubines. His favourite wife was 6yrs old when betrothed to the 55yr old Muhammad and this marriage was consummated when his bride was aged 9yrs. Another of his wives was once his daughter-in-law. His lust for her led him to exile his adopted son and prohibit all future adoption under Islamic Law so that his theft of her could never be challenged. Another wife was a married mother & member of a neighbouring Jewish tribe. To satisfy his depraved lust, Muhammad murdered all the men of the tribe, over 900 Jewish men and did away with her children. He took her as his wife and consummated his marriage to her, on the same day as he murdered her husband and children. See links for full information. Apart from his love-life, Muhammad spread Islam by the sword, leading his soldiers in constant aggressive wars against neighbouring peoples evermore distant from his home, until Islam had been established over an amazingly large area.
By promising his followers an afterlife of perpetual sexual pleasure in return for martyrdom, Muhammad preached a religion that prefers death over life, where ensuring a good death has become far more important than living a good life. To ensure that such an horrific philosophy would survive the millennia unchallenged, Muhammad named Science and Maths as “Satanic”, immediately leading to a cessation of scientific progress in the Muslim World that would continue to beggar Islamic nations, were it not for their oil reserves.
If all this was not enough, Muhammad ensured that the source scripture of Islam, the Qur’an, claimed to be of Divine Origin, was almost incomprehensible, with later chapters abrogating earlier ones on similar themes and the entire work ordered not by chronology but by number of words per chapter. The final chapters e.g.. Sura 9, are increasingly vicious, violent, murderous and depraved. They call for death to all Infidels who fail to convert to Islam or accept 2nd class but protected status in return for the payment of a special tax. The Arab nations once had 1million Jewish residents, all of whom were forced to flee under the Ottomans, because of violent discrimination and genocidal actions.
Islam prohibits reform under penalty of death and leaving Islam provides one a death sentence too. Apart from the Qur’an, Muhammad’s Commentaries and some from his disciples (Hadiths) are viewed as central planks of the religion that must be followed. In more recent times, certain highly regarded scholars have seen their works on Islamic Law gain widespread acceptance and devotion……eg. The Reliance of the Traveller, which provides the detailed context that underpins Islamic Law. The Al Azhar University in Cairo, established in 962 AD, remains today as the centre of islamic jurisprudence for all for schools of Sunni islamic legal thought. It is this institution that Egypt’s President has called upon to begin the process of reforming Islam and bringing Islamic violent subjugation of the rest of the world, to a halt! Halting the Islamic quest for the elimination of all non-Muslims, especially the Jews, will require a fundamental shift in Islamic thought and tradition.
To complicate matters, Muhammad’s succession was anything but smooth and the disputes that arose led to the split between Sunni and Shia versions of Islam, each with its own disputed line of succession that Muslims have been killing each other over for centuries. Since Muhammad’s emergence, Islam has been responsible for the death of 275,000,000 people, mainly Muslims. It has been the most murderous entity in the entire history of Humanity.
A great deal more could be written and I encourage everyone to read, read and read some more to gain a thorough understanding of Islam and its motivations, goals and aims. Islam mandates conquest and conversion of the entire population of the world. That’s the bottom line!! For that reason, deliberately refusing to call Islamic Extremism, Islamic, is working for the enemy……..an enemy that hates non-Muslims and wants the whole planet to be Muslim. Barak Obama understands this all very very well. He has chosen to defend Islam and to deceive Americans. When he ceased Qur’anic studies at age 12yrs, he was top of his class. He grew up in those early years, learning Jew Hatred and the underpinnings of violence. His hatred of Netanyahu is born of jew Hatred, especially of a brave, decorated Jewish commando with several Ivy League U.S. degrees to his name……a genius and an Israeli War Hero…….leaving Obama as unable to hold his own in Netanyahu”s company. Obama’s nastiness is simple ENVY!
It is Israel that is so much maligned. Recent commentary on a NYT article on Israel was so shockingly, horribly vicious and based on a grossly ignorant historical knowledge base. NYT should be ashamed of its readers’ ignorance of readily available historical facts and should seek to educate the public consuming their product. Huge gaps exist in Americans’ understanding of Iran and its leadership. Make no mistake, Obama and Kerry’s frantic obsession with getting an Iran deal, has led to the formulation of a terribly anti-Israel deal that will indeed threaten Israel’s very survival……no doubt! But let me be clear: Obama et al do not give a damn if Israel and the Jews cease to exist. Every move in the last 7yrs tells Jews that he is quite willing to see Israel destroyed. American Jews have still to fully wake…..there is not much time left to be complacent! I’ll publish this now. Please come back in 24hrs for great links to teach you everything you need to know about Islam but were afraid to ask!!
