HOUSTON, April 29, 2013 — For many Americans, it is almost reflexive to feel like a racist or a bigot when questioning why so much of the violence directed against our culture is perpetrated by Muslims. We no longer have the luxury of burying our collective heads in the sand and pretending that all cultures and religions are the same. While reading the following article, please put political correctness aside and focus on the facts and direct quotations from the Koran.
The truth is that the Koran directly compels Muslims to commit violent acts against disbelievers. While the ultimate goal of Judaism and Christianity, the most prominent Western religions, is individual salvation, the ultimate goal of Islam is collective domination and for the entire world to be under Islamic control and Sharia law. Muslims are instructed to do all that they can to facilitate this goal, including to kill and subjugate disbelievers and America MUST understand this or watch as our culture crumbles and our citizens continue to die.
Islam is more than a religion, it is a totalitarian ideology. Islam compels its followers to comply with Sharia law and to advance Sharia law in any way possible, including through violence against infidels (non-believers).
Sharia law not only governs religious practice but also every aspect of civil law, dress, public speech, women’s rights (or lack thereof), diet, marriage, economics, education, and literally every other minutiae of everyday life. Additionally, unlike other religions, Islam does not recognize secular government. It only recognizes a Theocratic government under Sharia law.
Islam teaches that the Koran is the direct word of God (Allah) as revealed through his prophet on earth, Muhammad, over a 23 year period in the seventh century. Unlike the Torah, the Bible and other religious texts, the Koran is said to be the express word of Allah and every directive is an order from Allah. The Koran is understood to be a perfect text that does not teach through morals and parables but rather through direct commands to its followers.
The Koran, although said to be a perfect text and the ultimate and divine word of Allah, contains many contradictions. Islam deals with this through an Islamic doctrine called “al-Nasikh wal-Mansoukh” (the Abrogator and the Abrogated), which means that verses that were revealed to Muhammad later in his life that contradict verses that were revealed to him at an earlier time, are abrogated, or considered void by the later verses. http://www.islamreview.com/
With the understanding that there are many contradictions in the Koran and that the later verses abrogate the earlier conflicting verses, the next task is to determine the chronological timeline of the revelation of verses. This is not very easy because the Koran is not in chronological order in terms of when Allah’s commands were revealed to Muhammad.
There is almost universal opinion amongst Islamic scholars though, that Sura 9 was either the very last or the second to last Sura revealed to Muhammad http://www.answering-islam.
Two verses, in particular, in Sura 9 most clearly sanction and command violence against non-believers.
The “Verse of the Sword” (Sura 9:5) according to many Muslim scholars, is the most common abrogating verse in the Koran. http://www.answering-islam.org/Silas/abrogation.htm#_Toc155617277 It states, “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the Jizya, leave their way free to them.”
Sura 9:29 states, “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.”
The “Jizya” is a tax that infidels would be required to pay if they chose to live as second class citizens rather than die.
These two verses in conjunction explain how Muslims must treat infidels. They must first offer a choice: to either convert to Islam, pay the extortion tax and live as second class citizens, or die. If infidels refuse to convert or subjugate themselves, violence is compelled in order to further Islamic domination.
Additionally, there is another Muslim concept, called “taqqiya” that allows Muslims to lie under one condition only: to further the cause of Islamic domination and rule over the entire world. http://www.answering-islam.
There are verses of the Koran that are often quoted to promote the idea that Islam is a religion of peace. The most common of them are probably the two listed below.
“Let there be no compulsion in religion” 2:256
“Therefore expound openly what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with Allah” 15:94
Unfortunately, these verses are abrogated by Sura 9:5, because there is overwhelming agreement amongst Islamic scholars that these peaceful verses were revealed to Muhammad a very long time before the ninth Sura. http://www.answering-islam.
Muslims, like followers of every other religion, often choose how much of their religion they will practice. Many Muslims do not advocate for, or adhere to, many of the tyrannical and/or violent mandates of Sharia law, including: the death penalty for apostasy, the subjugation of women, and stoning as punishment for adultery. A majority of Muslims disregard those mandates that conflict with their morals and their desired way of life.
Many Muslims though, including the governments of entire countries (Saudi Arabia, Iran,etc), strictly follow every directive in the Koran, including the call to kill non-believers in order to spread the goal of the entire world living under Sharia law and Islamic control.
The Muslims that practice fundamental Islam see the United States and Israel, and the allure of individual freedoms and liberty in these societies, as the largest obstacles to worldwide Islamic dominance. Short of sacrificing our freedoms and liberties and adopting Sharia law, there will never be anything we can do that will stop fundamental Muslims from trying to destroy our culture and way of life using any method available.
The difference between violence committed in the name of Islam and violence committed in the name of other religions is that Islam directly commands violence. Therefore, followers must manipulate Islam in order to NOT commit violent acts. Followers of other religions must manipulate the teaching of those religions in order to justify violence. Islam is the only religion that openly sanctions and encourages violence.
America must understand that although a large portion of Muslims do not condone violence to spread Islam, many more than American leaders are comfortable recognizing, do. It is not just a “tiny minority.”
A 2011 study by the Pew Research Center shows that 8% of Muslims in the US believe suicide bombing to be justified http://www.people-press.org/
As of 2010, there were 2.6 million Muslims in America (up from 1 million in 2000) http://www.nydailynews.com/
Fundamental Islam is intent on destroying our society and will use any technique available to do so. America may not be at war with fundamental Islam, but it is at war with us. It is not racism or bigotry to ask these questions, it is common sense. Our society and our way of life is at stake and there is not much time to wake up to this threat.
This is the strongest and most hardened enemy America and the freedoms and liberties offered by our way of life have ever faced. Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany and other previous enemies of our country were all motivated by nationalism. Fundamental Islam, and its giant army of worldwide followers, is motivated by the word of their God, Allah.
Violence by Muslims against Infidels has been going on for over 1400 years, and with the technological evolution of international travel and the simplification of weapons of mass destruction, fundamental Muslims can, and will continue to, cause violence on American shores. How many more Americans must die before this truth is fully recognized and acted upon?
