It is time to take the Bull of Islam by the Horns and call it out for what it is.
“There is no such thing as “radical Islam.” I have refused to accept several organizations that seek to combat or expose the antics of “radical” or “extreme” Islam, because I know that it is not extremism that is causing the violence…it’s mainstream, typical, normal, traditional, specified, canonical [based on religious law] Islam.” Amil Imani (See more below.) [emphasis added]
“Making Allah the author of the Quran, I think, is the prime lie perpetrated on mankind for more than a millennium. We can, with certainty, say that it was not even Muhammad alone who authored the Qur’an. In fact, the major part of the Qur’an was either composed by or inspired and written by a few other individuals. Abul Kasem at FaithFreedom.org Kasem lists at least 15 people instrumental in compiling the Quran (Koran). [emphasis added]
Taqlid (or taqleed): explained: Taqlid is the belief that Allah is the One God. Mohammad was his prophet. The Quran (and the Hadith and Sira) are eternal and perfect. No questions will be entertained. It will always be as it has always been. Masha Allah. (God has willed it).
There are nuances in taqlid. Certain special people are more knowledgeable and are to be followed but there are many confusing exceptions if they put out contradictory statements.
Generally Taqlid means that Islam cannot be reformed or changed or improved or altered. It is perfect as is.
Ponder that. Take in fully what it means.
The Quran on Violence: Excerpts –
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”
Quran (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.”
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned;
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah”
Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord… So, when you meet those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them)
Sahih Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
Sahih Bukhari (11:626) – [Muhammad said:] “I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those, who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.”
Sahih Muslim (1:149) – “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”
Sahih Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite.'” [A sentence to Hell in Islam.]
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”
Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.
Contemporary Sunni theologian al-Qaradawi: “It has been determined by Islamic law that the blood and property of people of Dar al-Harb [ie. non-Muslim people who resist Islamic conquest] is not protected… In modern war, all of society, with all its classes and ethnic groups, is mobilized to participate in the war, to aid its continuation, and to provide it with the material and human fuel required for it to assure the victory of the state fighting its enemies. Every citizen in society must take upon himself a role in the effort to provide for the battle. The entire domestic front, including professionals, laborers, and industrialists, stands behind the fighting army, even if it does not bear arms.”
Is al-Qaradawi clear enough that ALL Muslims are to support jihad?
If you cling tenaciously to Islam then you can never be a moderate, no matter how much you keep your mouth shut. Islam is as Islam does.
ARE THE ROSE COLORED GLASSES OFF YET?
So, shall we join a beheading in progress? Religiously it is preferred that they start with the front of the neck in order to release large quantities of blood, praying to Allah, while then using a sharp blade and brute force to shatter bones that get in the way.
Here and Here and Here are Muslim beheading videos from the Net. I do not recommend watching these if you enjoy sleeping the sleep of bliss or if you are a Snowflake… And I seriously recommend AGAINST watching any of these if you have PTSD.
The middle link is to Walid Shoebat’s site. Walid is a converted Christian Palestinian Arab who has lots more moxy than I do. With his intent and intense ongoing war against Islam I find it hard to believe that he still walks this earth.
His site is always pro-Christian. And his site is often graphic, or horrific, if you prefer, as he chronicles the gut wrenching, vicious, brutal, barbaric attacks of Muslims against others.
VICIOUS IS AS VICIOUS DOES
If beheadings aren’t your interest, how about “female genital mutilation”? That’s what the media euphemistically call it. The UN has estimated that 200 million women in 30 countries have been mutilated.
Clitorectomy (or clitoridectomy) is the complete – or partial – removal of the girl’s clitoris. This can be done with old broken glass shards, used razors, or anything else that’s sharp enough to cut into her.
And this unbelievably cruel “cutting” is usually done between the ages of 5 and 15 so the memory will always be there. There is no medical reason for doing this.
There is however a male Islamic religious reason for this: to insure sexual fidelity. If she cannot enjoy sex, then she will be less likely to wander into a dalliance.
It is always stunningly amazing that the “Pink Bonnet Sisters” – that noisy enraged, crazed bastion of pseudo-liberated clitorally-intact foul mouthed fulminating feminists – still eagerly embrace Islam; and Muslim refugees; and the tired old moniker “The Religion of Peace”.
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES (and we’ve got plenty of it…)
Let’s return to Amil Imani . He is an Iranian-American who recently published a piece at NewsWithViews.com called CHRISTIANITY AND RADICAL ISLAM: BREAKING THE SILENCE.
With his permission I have pulled some salient quotes which are meant to roust the sleeping, pierce the shield of Political Correctness, crack the polished veneers of the “Tolerant”, and otherwise offend fence-sitters.
“As for democracy, the rule of the people, Muslims have no use for it whatsoever. Muslims believe that Allah’s rule must govern the world in the form of a Caliphate. Making a mockery of democracy, subverting its workings, and ignoring its provisions is a Muslim’s way of falsifying what he already believes to be a sinful and false system of government, invented by the infidels.” [emphasis added]
“I argue that any belief system that licenses murder in the name of Jihad and the conquering and subduing of the world of the infidels by the Umma [the Muslim community], should be outlawed. The prophet Mohammad brewed up a militant, radical and extremely irrational imperialistic cult that sought world dominance. My fellow travelers, let us make one thing clear; Islam is no more a religion deserving our respect or legal recognition than is cannibalism.” [emphasis added]
In Amil’s article he lists 7 “moderate” quotes about Islam from
George W Bush and from Obama. It is very illustrative to see what these gents had to say about an archaic, cruel, 7th century, violent, never-to-be reformed (it is forbidden in the Quran) religion that opposes any laws or Constitution other than Sharia, combined with abject prostration to Allah. Allahu Akbar!
By the way, according to Robert Spencer what Allahu Akbar really means is,
“God is greater!” emphasizing that Allah is superior to all, without exception.
“Islamic terrorists are doing exactly what the prophet Muhammad demanded. And his demands were not suggestions and were not ephemeral. They were “perfect,” eternal ultimata. Islamic terrorists are faithful and true to what is written in the book of Quran.” From Amil.
The point here is, so are all practicing Muslims. TAQLID is the unquestioning imitation of precedent. They are not allowed to “reform” their religion. Muhammad was the perfect example. Mohammad was the Prophet of Allah. Allah wrote the Quran (Koran).
Any Muslim openly disagreeing with Taqlid would at the very least be an apostate – a denier of the tenets of Islam – offensive in the eyes of Allah, and likely headed to a quick and possibly very awful death.
But remember always that the Quran allows lies, deceit, cruelty, machinations, and anything else that a Muslim believes will advance Islam. No Muslim is bound to any honor in dealing with the infidels, the unbelievers, the Kafir.
The upshot here is that ALL Muslims – Muslims being anyone who has embraced the religion of Islam – are bound to Sharia, the Code of Law derived from the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sira. It is not for them to question but to obey without question. True, some are more militant than others but the universal truth is that Islam must rule the world by Caliphate; that all will be Muslims; or tax-paying subordinates to Muslims; or dead.
“I know that it is not extremism that is causing the violence…it’s mainstream, typical, normal, traditional, specified, canonical Islam.” Amil Imani
ISLAM IS AS ISLAM DOES. Masha Allah. [God has willed it so.]
