In a religion that believes in an eye-for-an-eye, not turning the other cheek, just what is ‘blasphemy’ against Islam? Vengeance is the mantra of the Muslim. They are commanded by their god, Allah, to administer ‘death to the infidels.’ The methods used suggest that acts of bloodshed occur only after Muslims are persecuted. They are a defense mechanism simply waiting patiently for a reason to apply taking an eye-for-an-eye. More on that later.
From the Internet, the website: http://www.thinkandask.com/2006/011306islam.html, I provide the following, quoted directly. The author: Amil Imani
“Understanding what “Islamic Terrorism” is and identifying the signs or association those who are or may become Islamic terrorists, may help the society to detect and prevent or capture the terrorists before they commit crimes against the innocent civilians. A better understanding of the true nature of Islam will alarm people of the dangers of “Islamic Terrorism.” (This is their understanding of Islam from the Quran, the manifesto of Muslims)(this parenthetical is not of the author, but provided for clarity)
- Islam rewards those who are willing to die for “Allah.” “Everybody hates death, fears death. Only those, the believers who know the life after death and the reward after death, would be the ones who would be seeking death.
- Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.
- If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them.
- Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to hell.
- Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. The holy Quran.
Everyone eventually will face death. However, the destination after death is not the same. Those who believed in Allah –and followed what Allah’s messenger said– will be in paradise. In other words, those who commit crimes against humanity, murder the infidels, rape little girls or boys, burn the cities of disbelievers, hijack airplanes to fly them into buildings, and bringing down the towers and casting terror in the lives of people, will spend their eternal rest in heaven. To top it all off, 72 virgin women will greet them at the gate with a bottle of French wine.
For those who deviate from executing the words of Allah, an eternal blazing Fire (Hell) will be awaiting them. In other words, every good person, kind person, giving person and innocent person on earth will taste eternal fire.
Muslims still insist that “Allah” is the same as the Eternal God, Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, yet he needs blood and lots of it.
Since its inception fourteen hundred years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literary butchered with the sword of Islam. Some may argue that all religions at one point in time in have committed crimes against humanity. That may be so, but none of the existing world religions’ foundations have been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent victims. Islam lives, breaths and grows on blood. Once we take away this red element from Islam, Islam will vanish completely. Islam cannot possibly live in the hearts and minds of its believers. Islam needs to shed the blood of the infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. Islam is about world domination. It is utterly part of being Muslims.”
Sura Supports the claims:
“until…religion is only for Allah.” (sura 2.193)
“So obey not the disbelievers (do not even listen to them), and strive against them a mighty striving with it.” (sura 25.52) This is Jihad.
Muslims are taught by the Qur’an and Allah’s messenger to ‘fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them.’ (sura 9:5)
Here is a most interesting passage from the Qur’an, sura 10:94, “If you were to doubt as to what We have revealed unto you, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before you: the Truth has indeed come to you from your Lord: so be it no wise of those who doubt.” The “Book” referred to is the Bible. (Discussed in Part 4 – blogged on December 15, 2009)
During Muhammad’s life there were many overt violent acts against those counter to the beliefs preached by Muhammad. After his wife, Kadhija, died Muhammad focused on the calling he felt compelled to follow. Revelations (dreams) gave him a monotheistic passion which he applied to a polytheistic Arab world. His actions caused a stir in Mecca against the impact his proclamations were having on those respecting other idols; their religions, faiths, beliefs were being bombarded by the Quranic claims of the messenger. Note that as a result of his preaching (proselytizing) he felt persecuted. This element, cause, of persecution has become part of the Islamic Strategy of Conquest. I will discuss this Strategy in a later Blog. But you will get the idea here.
Muhammad took a small band of followers and left Mecca, claiming ‘persecution made me do it.’ Destination Medina. In Medina factions were in dispute. Muhammad was seen as an independent voice that might properly arbitrate the differences. The City was not just Arabs, but Jews also, the Diaspora from as far back as the Babylonian Captivity growing in a number of locations, including Medina. Muhammad was trusted, became a leader in the city. He then took steps to make Medina the first (1st) Muslim City. Jews were executed. They may have raised objections to Muhammad’s proclamations after a time, Muhammad claimed persecution, the result jihad justified. After time Muhammad’s forces, followers, grew and he saw the opportunity to return to Mecca. Muhammad never forgot his treatment there and the reason for leaving. Now justified he took as many as 10,000 and went to claim Mecca for Allah. What is fair is fair, since persecuted years before, having done nothing except preach, Muhammad’s position then was one of justification for retribution, vengeance against those not accepting his monotheistic religion and honoring Allah. The cycle of conquests, model cities for Islam, and revenge only against those who oppose Islam, began. Without opposition, so the Muslim’s claim, all can remain peaceful. What, then, is considered opposition?
Something to consider. More to follow.
Grace and peace and may the world be enlightened as to the history of Islam, the intent of Islam, have discussions about Islam, and be aware of the nature of Islam. Is it a religion or an ideology? Is there justification for jihad against those that may simply criticize or express concerns for this message of Muhammad?
