* The above quote, as you may be aware, is attributed to the Ayatollah Khomeini who started the Islamic ‘revolution’ in Iran which resulted in the revival and upsurge of the global jihad which is terrorizing us now.
* Today Â we have discovered an article in the Pakistan Daily that pulls all the registers of Islamic taqiyya and deceit, without ever addressing the obvious: the 1400 years of jihad against the world. Talk aboutÂ clichÃ©s, here you get it all on a silver platter: involuntary humor, stupidity, denial of the obvious, Tu Coque and brazen lies. And if you ever wondered why Muhammedans always tell you that there are several billion of them who will all be coming to get you if you draw a Muhammad cartoon, they’ll tell you in the same sentence that the ‘terrorists are only a tiny minority of extremists’- so tiny in fact, that you can’t even see them under a microscope, and that all of that has -of course- nothing to do with Islam. What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?
“Do not be fooled by the west’s propaganda on Islam”
“There is an ongoing slander campaign against Islam, claiming that it is a religion that promotes violence and hinting that it seeks world conquest.”
* Really? Who would have thought…?
Winds of Jihad Reality Check:
“The chief weapon in the quiver of all Islamist expansionist movements, is the absolute necessity to keep victims largely unaware of the actual theology plotting their demise.Â To complete this deception, a large body of ‘moderates’ continue to spew such ridiculous claims as “Islam means Peace” thereby keeping non-Muslims from actually reading the Qur’an, the Sira, the Hadith, or actually looking into the past 1400 years of history.Â Islamists also deny or dismiss the concept of ‘abrogation’, which is the universal intra-Islamic method of replacing slightly more tolerable aspects of the religion in favor of more violent demands for Muslims to slay and subdue infidels”
“You do it too..”
Compare the history of Islam with the history of Europe, which for centuries was called Christendom. An objective look will show you that Christendom wins by a landslide when it comes to violence and wars. After all, Europe and its offspring did not come to dominate the world, including the Islamic countries, because they practiced the gentle virtues of Jesus.
* A common Muhammedan claim, but false. Most of the wars in Europe were not faught about or because of Chistianity…
As for the common practice of cherry-picking Scripture from holy writings and presenting it out of context, just check out what Christians call the Old Testament. There you will find God advocating a double standard of morality, condoning slavery, ordering the Israelites to commit genocide and committing infanticide himself on a mass scale. I don’t believe you will find anything comparable in the Quran.
* The Old Testament is at best a historical record. Its about what happened then and there. It is not meant to be taken literally like the Koran, which Â commands perpetual warfare against unbelievers until the world is Islamic and genocide on Jews. Slavery? Â Islamic countries are the worst offenders in the world today.
* Â “Jihad is inner struggle”
The word “jihad,” which is so over-used these days, has, like a lot of words, more than one meaning. It means basically to struggle, but this can be personal or spiritual, or a peaceful political struggle. Only if Islam is attacked are Muslims required to defend it. As for that obnoxious propaganda term “Islamo-fascist,” just recall that fascism is a European invention by nominal Christians. To my knowledge, the only fascist governments ever to exist on this planet were all European and nominally Christian.
* 1400 years of ongoing jihad-warfare against the rest of the world and the global jihad in more than 30 theaters of war around the world are proof that jihad is offensive not defensive warfare. The Islamic scriptures have only one reference re ‘greater jihad’ versus 164 jihad verses in the Koran and uncounted hadiths that make the ‘inner struggle’ apologies a mockery of anyones intelligence.
Another canard is that Islam promotes forced conversion. Not so. Even when the Arab empire was expanding, rarely were any of the conquered people forced to convert. The Quran even forbids it, as I recall. Naturally, once Muslims were in charge, a lot of people decided it was in their own self-interest to convert, but this is just one of the sleazy aspects of human nature.
* Â Here is just ONE example of kidnapping and forced conversion, something that’s been going on since the days of Muhammad. More than a million white women were kidnapped from the shores of Europe when the Barbary pirates went on their raids. No Abdullah, you cannot blow smoke our way, we are too well informed to buy into your distortions.
I remember when Florida elected its first Republican governor of the 20th century. I saw plenty of people crawl out from under their rocks and convert to the Republican Party, drawn by the smell of patronage. With some rare exceptions, human beings always act in what they perceive, rightly or wrongly, to be in their self-interest.
* Unreleated to this subject. Stay on topic, Abdulla…
It was Christian Europe that slaughtered the Jews, and nothing remotely resembling the Holocaust is to be found in the history of Islam. In fact, during the past, when Jews were being persecuted by Christian Europe, they frequently fled to and found sanctuary in the Muslim countries. Until Israel was established, practically every Muslim country had sizable Jewish populations dating back centuries. And there are still Jews and Christians in some Muslim countries.
* First of all: Â these Jews were mereley ”allowed to live’ as dhimmi’s, in abject poverty and without any rights, there were regular purges and mass-murder on Jews, check Maimonides, etc…and the Mufti of Jerusalem who was such a great friend of Hitler established the Handschar brigades, who wiped out the Jews in the Balkans.
* Genocide on Jews dates back to Muhammad. The Â Genocide on other peoples (80 million Hindus under Mughal rule in India) and the genocide on the Christian Armenians and Greeks in Turkey may be denied by Muhammedans, but the evidence is undeniable. The complete annihilation of the Zaroastrians and the Bahai are real and undeniable, as well as the ongoing attacks and oppression of theÂ ChristianÂ Copts in Egypt.
* The ‘tinyÂ minorityÂ of extremists’ canard
A final suggestion is that when you hear some individual radical Muslim being quoted, just remember he is one of a billion people and speaks only for himself and his small following. And be wary of the quotations he uses, for they are often deliberately fabricated or distorted.
* Hardly, Abdullah: When there is cartoon-rage or Teddy-Bear rage or Pope or Koran rage we hear from the Muslims everytime that the whole ummah of billions will all come out to get us. You can’t have it both ways and now tell us they are just a ‘tinyÂ minorityÂ of extremists’.. that doesn’t wash. We have seen enough.
If Muslims really desired to conquer the world, don’t you think it’s strange that we’ve been living in peace with them for nearly a millennium and a half, except for those times when we attacked them (the Crusades, the European colonial movement and our invasion of Iraq)? Don’t forget either that some of the countries the Bush administration calls allies are themselves Muslim â€” Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, etc.
* You’ve lost the plot, Abdulla. Who’s been living in peace with whom? Who attacked whom?Â
“Go back to sleep..”
You have nothing to fear from Islam. The al-Qaida movement is a tiny percentage of Muslims and wouldn’t be the force it is except for the fact that the Bush administration has gone out of its way to make all of Osama bin Laden’s propaganda become true.
* Al Qaeda, al Schmaeda. Every Muslim who takes his religion seriously is a mortal danger to us and to himself. The Bush administration showed a lack of resolve and knowledge to deal with the Islamic onslaught, but that is only a matter of time now. People are becoming increasingly aware about what’s in store for them if MuhammedanÂ barbarityÂ has its way. We cannot coexist. Islam must be eradicated, destroyed, ridiculed and exposed just like Communism. It will be: it is only a matter of time…
