Islamic Art

* Bloodcult of ‘Martyrdom’- nothing to do with Islam or terrorism, right?

Islam Lesson for Today:


As anyone who has read Prophet of Doom knows, Islam is a declaration of war against all mankind. It is a terrorist manifesto. We have provided a thousand pages of documented and contextual evidence proving this. Here is a small sample of some of this evidence:

From Prophet of Doom - Chapter 21, Blood and Booty

Muhammad said such things too, as did his god. Each of the following quotes is from the “Spoils of War” surah. It explains why Muslims are willing to kill to achieve their monopoly. Qur’an 8:1 “They ask you about the benefits of capturing the spoils of war. Tell them: ‘The benefits belong to Allah and to His Messenger.’ So fulfill your duty to Allah and the Prophet.” Qur’an 8:5 “Your Lord sent you from your homes to fight for the true cause.” Qur’an 8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.'” Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.” Qur’an 8:15 “Believers, when you meet the unbelievers in battle, do not turn your back on them for any Muslim who retreats will bring the wrath of Allah on himself and will abide in Hell.” Qur’an 8:72 “Those who accepted Islam and left their homes to fight in Allah’s Cause with their possessions and persons, and those who gave them shelter and aided them are your allies. You are only called to protect Muslims who fight.” Qur’an 8:73 “The infidels aid one another. Unless you do the same there will be anarchy in the land. Those who accepted Islam and left their homes to fight in Allah’s Cause are good Muslims.” Qur’an 8:57 “If you meet them in battle, inflict on them such a defeat as would be a lesson for those who come after them, that they may be warned.” Qur’an 8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.” Qur’an 8:71 “He will give you mastery over them.” Qur’an 8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”

From Prophet of Doom - Prologue

The Islamic Sira proclaims: Ishaq:587 “Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace.”

Qur’an 5:51 “O believers, do not hold Jews and Christians as your allies. They are allies of one another; and anyone who makes them his friends is one of them.” Qur’an 2:10 “As for those who deny Islam…they shall be the faggots for the Fire of Hell.” Islam’s god is a spirit of an entirely different color. Ishaq:327 “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.'” Bukhari:V5B59N512 “The Prophet had their men killed, their children and woman taken captive.” Qur’an 33:26 “Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.”

So that you might know what Islam does to men, I have organized 2,000 Islamic scriptures by topic in the “Muhammad’s Own Words” appendix. Here are some excerpts from the Fighting, Terrorism, War, and Jihad sections:

Ishaq:576 “Allah and Muhammad humiliated every coward and made our religion victorious. We were glorified and destroyed them all. By what our Apostle recites from the Book and by our swift horses, I liked the punishment the infidels received. Killing them was sweeter than drink. We galloped among them panting for the spoil. With our loud-voiced army, the Apostle’s squadron advanced into the fray.”

Tabari IX:69 “Arabs were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.”

Muslim:C20B1N4597 “The Prophet said at the conquest of Mecca: ‘There is no migration now, but only Jihad, fighting for the Cause of Islam. When you are asked to set out on a Jihad expedition, you should readily do so.'”

Qur’an 61:4 “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His Cause.”

Ishaq:300 “I am fighting in Allah’s service. This is piety and a good deed. In Allah’s war I do not fear as others should. For this fighting is righteous, true, and good.”

Bukhari:V4B52N63 “A man whose face was covered with an iron mask came to the Prophet and said, ‘Allah’s Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first?’ The Prophet said, ‘Embrace Islam first and then fight.’ So he embraced Islam and was martyred. Allah’s Apostle said, ‘A Little work, but a great reward.'”

Bukhari:V4B53N386 “Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.'”

Qur’an 47:4 “When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”

Ishaq:315 “It was so criminal, men could hardly imagine it. Muhammad was ennobled because of the bloody fighting. I swear we shall never lack soldiers nor army leaders. Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!”

Ishaq:208 “When Allah gave permission to his Apostle to fight, the second Aqaba contained conditions involving war which were not in the first act of submission. Now we bound ourselves to war against all mankind for Allah and His Apostle. He promised us a reward in Paradise for faithful service. We pledged ourselves to war in complete obedience to Muhammad no matter how evil the circumstances.”

Eighty percent of the mosques in America and the West were built and are staffed by the Fahd warlords. They also provide their terrorist manufacturing facilities with their reading material. The official Qur’an for the English speaking market bears the stamp of the Fahd Foundation. In it, right below surah Qur’an 2:190, the Qur’an’s first mention of Jihad, you’ll find this passage: “Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s Cause with full force of numbers and weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars. By Jihad, Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior (which means only Allah has the right to be worshiped), and Islam is propagated. By abandoning Jihad, Islam is destroyed and Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape from this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.”


4 thoughts on “Islamic Art”



    Suppose you stumbled upon the Constitution of an organization that was terrorizing the world. Would you ignore such a document, or would you read it? Suppose you discovered that this Constitution’s most prominent themes were pain and punishment, thievery and violence, intolerance and war. If the regime’s charter ordered its devotees to kill, plunder, and terrorize, would you sound an alarm?

    What if this Constitution was supported by a manifesto that contained the only authorized biography of the regime’s founder, and the first devotees of this doctrine, its co-founders, said that their leader was a sexual predator, a pirate, and a terrorist? If you found such evidence, what would you do with it? What if this leader motivated his mercenaries to murder and mayhem by allowing them to keep what they had stolen in the name of the cause – their victim’s homes, businesses, money – even their women and children?

  2. I have not read the quran but reading the above, ther eis much of vengeance preached; I one reads the bible jesus preached love and forgiveness- what a contrast.

  3. The “Islamic Art” Hoax

    The push to credit Islam for so-called “Islamic Art” is beginning to look as feeble as the Obama administration’s mandate to the National Aeronautic and Space Administration to showcase the Arab contributions to space exploration.

    Talking about Islamic art is rather like talking about the art of the Khanates. The Imperial Kingdom of Genghis Khan was the largest contiguous empire on earth. But just because different lands and cultures were conquered by Genghis Khan doesn’t mean that there is a significance to grouping their art. The sphere of power of the Muslim Empire stretched from the borders of China and the Indian subcontinent across Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, Sicily, and the Iberian Peninsula, and on to the Pyrenees. There needs to be a further rationale for calling art collections from lands conquered or subdued by the forces of Islam “Islamic Art.”

    Then why all the impetus, which started in earnest some almost a decade ago, for all the “Islamic Art” openings at prestigious museums, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Victoria and Albert Museum in England? The creation of departments of Islamic art at prestigious universities and museums? The support of prestigious foundations like Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art?

    It is political correctness.

    The idea is that the kinder, gentler artistic side of Islam needs to be promoted to disabuse the hopelessly bigoted perception, held by various troglodyte crypto-neo-cons, that Islam is an aggressive, imperialist, expansionist, and repressive “religion.” But even at the start of the “Islamic Art” movement there were, as we shall see, art critics who doubted that Islam provided the inspiration or the continuity for collections of art from lands under Muslim control. The push to credit Islam for so-called “Islamic Art” is beginning to look as feeble as the Obama administration’s mandate to the National Aeronautic and Space Administration to showcase the Arab contributions to space exploration.

    Writing in 2004, the NYT art critic Souren Melikian had this to say about the ménage of “Islamic Art”:

    Refashioning the image of cultures you know precious little about to fit preconceived ideas that suit your purpose is not a good recipe in art history any more than it is in international relations. That is just about what the Western world has been doing for the last hundred years vis-à-vis what it calls “the Islamic world.”

    In 2006, as regards contemporary “Islamic Art,” the art critic Holland Cotter, also of NYT, wrote:

    By far the most prominent exhibition of contemporary art on the subject yet seen in New York opens today at the Museum of Modern Art. You would never guess that subject, though, from its title – “Without Boundary: Seventeen Ways of Looking” – in which the word Islam does not appear.

    All but three of the featured artists were born in some part of the so-called Islamic world: Algeria, Egypt, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Palestine and Turkey. But they all live and work in the West and have made their careers in the mainstream international art scene, which means in Europe and the United States. Despite their Western positioning, they are routinely tagged as Islamic artists by an art world addicted to marketable categories.

    By 2008, the Metropolitan Museum of Art offered the following rationale for the extensive renovation it was undertaking for the future opening of its “Islamic Art” collection. It is a superb tap-dance on the unity and diversity of its so-called Islamic collection:

    Successive rooms in the new galleries will illustrate the rapid emergence of a new aesthetic from the cultural heritage of Byzantine Syria, Coptic Egypt, and Sasanian Iran; continual artistic interconnections with neighboring cultures, ranging from medieval Western Europe to Ming China; and finally, the impact of Islam’s own abstract forms upon the arts of the modern world. The objects exhibited will emphasize the unity of vision underlying the rich diversity of regional styles while underscoring the distinct artistic character and cultural heritage of each individual area.

    There is a unity of vision between medieval Europe and Ming China?

    In October 2011 the same NYT critic, Holland Cotter, reviewed the long-awaited opening of the “Islamic” collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the “Islamic” aspect is being totally downplayed:

    In 2003 the Islamic galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art closed for renovation, and one of the world’s premier collections of Islamic art more or less vanished into storage. … The Met’s Islamic collection returns to view in what are now being called the galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia and Later South Asia. … Rather than presenting Islamic art as the product of a religiously driven monoculture encompassing centuries and continents, the Met is now – far more realistically – approaching it as a varied, changing, largely secular phenomenon, regionally rooted but absorptively cosmopolitan, affected by the intricacies and confusions of history, including the history that the art itself helped to create.

    Even art critics at the NYT could not bring themselves to buy into the PC-promoted rubric of “Islamic Art” as if Islam promoted the arts — or independent scientific thought, for that matter. And, looking at Islam itself, it is more accurate to say that “Islamic Art” survived in spite of Islam rather than because of it.

    Muhammad was no more an art aficionado than was Attila the Hun. The Islamic hadiths forbid artistic expression from music to dance to painting — other than abstract or “Arabesque” designs.

    Muslims believe hadiths to be canonical texts of Islam. Muslims believe such hadiths to be authentic utterances of the Islamic prophet, therefore to be obeyed.

    Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said: Those who paint pictures would be punished on the Day of Resurrection and it would be said to them: Breathe soul into what you have created. (Sahih Muslim vol.3, no.5268)

    This hadith has been reported on the authority of Abu Mu’awiya though another chain of transmitters (and the words are): Verily the most grievously tormented people amongst the denizens [inhabitants] of Hell on the Day of Resurrection would be the painters of pictures[.] (Sahih Muslim vol.3, no.5271)

    Narrated [Muhammad’s wife] Aisha: “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The painter of these pictures will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be said to them, Make alive what you have created.'” (Bukhari vol.9, book 93 no.646)

    Narrated Aisha: “The Prophet entered upon me while there was a curtain having pictures (of animals) in the house. His face got red with anger, and then he got hold of the curtain and tore it into pieces. The Prophet said, ‘Such people as paint these pictures will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection.'” (Bukhari vol.8, book 73, no.130)

    The PC thesis of “Islamic Art,” promoted presumably in the interest of inter-cultural respect and combating what is seen as the demonization of Islam, has exploded. We were somehow supposed to accept the meme that he art of the Islamic world was enriched by the influence of Koranic passages extolling art and music and independent scientific investigation, and by contact with Muhammad’s warriors. It is almost as if we are supposed to believe that whenever the illiterate, nomadic warrior tribes of Islam could take a break from the hard work of expanding Dar al Islam by invading infidel lands and demanding dhimmitude or death for kafirs, they would break out their brushes and pallets and produce great works of art.

    “Islamic Art” is taxonomically incoherent and attributively the inverse of reality. It is all part of the Cordoba myth, which has been masterfully taken apart by Andrew Bostom and others.
