Not a day goes by without newscasters, commentators, or social media chatter using the phrases, “a faction of radical Islamists,” or “Islam is a peaceful religion.” Because the majority of Americans include the non-religious and self-identifying Christians who know little to nothing about Christianity, it’s not surprising that these statements go largely unchallenged.
Americans know little to nothing about Islam. Few non-Muslims have read the Qur’an or the Hadith. If they had, they would know Islam is neither peaceful nor a religion as the West defines either of these terms.
The Qur’an, unlike the Bible, was written by one man, Muhammad, over the course of his lifetime. Knowing what and when text was written is essential. Passages written later supersede passages written earlier. Because the “peaceful” or “tolerant” passages of the Qur’an are in the beginning and the violent and “intolerant” passages are written later, the latter are prioritized.
While many people proof-text the Bible, picking and choosing texts to justify an argument, the Qur’an cannot be misinterpreted in that way. Muhammad’s commands are to be taken literally. The Qur’an’s syntax and epistemology do not include parables, anthropomorphic analogies or symbolism, phonology, morphology, poetry, hymnic, apocalyptic or wisdom literature as found in the Bible. Muhammad explicitly states that no Muslim can alter or ignore any part of his clear and direct commands. If they do, he warns they will burn in torment forever.
Muhammad’s commands refer interchangeably to Islam and Shari’a Law. They are one in the same and are considered the law of Allah. Shari’a ideology outlines a very specific and mandatory legal and political plan to infiltrate every area of society. It is a Muslim’s duty to convert all governments to Shari’a Law.
Islam, a totalitarian system, orders religious worship, financial transactions and contracts, morality, philosophical and other beliefs, and criminal and civil law. Under Shari’a, drinkers, gamblers, and unmarried sexual partners must be whipped, and domestic violence, child marriage, and honor killings are supported. Shari’a exacts equal punishment against a perpetrator; such as requiring the cutting off of a thief’s hand, or killing an adulterous wife. Gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender people must all be executed.
As Belgian leader Abu Imran explains, “democracy is the opposite of Islam. A Muslim who supports democracy is equivalent to a Jewish Muslim. It’s impossible to be both Jewish and Muslim and impossible to be a Muslim against Shari’a.”
Through immigration and a birth rate of 2:1 to all others, Muslims are patiently, deliberately, and methodically advancing Islamic law in non-Muslim countries. Whether Islamists are Shi’ite, Sunni, Wahhabi, or another sect, they all seek to eliminate individual freedom and free speech.
· In the UK, Shari’a courts, public schools, no-go zones and street patrols ignore and violate British law.
· In Holland and Belgium momentum is gaining to dominate central cities and eradicate all Jews.
· In Norway, Muslims advocate decapitation and jail for those who reject Islam.
· In Germany, Muslims reject existing law, causing increased crime and civil unrest.
· In Spain, Saudi Wahhabis are funding schools for immigrants against Spanish law.
· In France and Moscow entire streets are illegally shut down by thousands of men praying, who also demand more space to pray.
These are only a few of many examples of Shari’a.
More importantly, the Qur’an instructs Muslims to lie to non-Muslims about their beliefs and political ambitions.
Known as Taqiyya, Muslims make claims in English to the West, but state the opposite in their Mosques and to those in their native tongue. Non-Muslims are considered enemies to be conquered as in a war, which is why the Qur’an encourages deceit as a method to spread Islam. Numerous “humanitarian” organizations and businesses act as fronts to fund Jihad. Some downplay Jihad, stating it means “struggle.” But the Qur’an defines it as “Holy War.” The Qur’an and Shari’a both order death for anyone who criticizes Muhammad, the Qur’an and Shari’a.
When Muslims state, “Islam is a religion of peace,” they mean something entirely different from that of a Westerner’s concept of peace. According to the Qur’an, the world will only be at peace when every country is Shari’a-ruled.
Any American who claims that Islam is a “religion of peace,” need only research how women and children live in any of 57 Islamic countries. Americans should also visit one of thirty Jihad training camps on American soil. Jamaat ul-Fuqra (Muslims of America) has purchased or leased hundreds of acres of land to conduct “the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.”
ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda and many others are not “extremist groups.” They simply adhere to what the Qur’an teaches: “Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Qur’an is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
Promoting peace means, peace will exist when all non-Muslims are converted or dead.
