A lengthy essay on the 1400-years of jihad warfare and conquests against the world.Â
But first, an exchange between a poster named ROB and Hugh Fitzgerald:
Christianity may be the religion of love, freedom and reason but it will need to depend on force to defeat Islam. As soon as Islam is militarily strong enough it will engage America militarily. The west survived because of Charles Martel, the Hungarians at Vienna and the Jesuits and Capuchins who fought, yes fought, in the rigging of the ships at Lepanto. I have no hope for Europe and its an even money bet (at best) for America.
“Christianity may be the religion of love, freedom and reason but it will need to depend on force to defeat Islam.”– from ROB’s comment
Yes. I like to remind people of what Vladimir Nabokov said, addressing a rally at Wellesley College in the middle of World War II — a “Why We Fight”Â rally. This is what he said:Â
“Morally, democracy is invincible. Physically, that side will win which has the better guns.”
That’s what counts: who is more powerful, militarily powerful. Moral superiority can only get you so far. You need to have better guns, tanks, planes, missiles,, and the hard-headed willingness to use them, as a supplement to otherwise dividing and demoralizing the Camp of Islam. There are so many things to be done, but it requires superior strength, including superior military strength.

Prof. Dr. Hans Jansen is a Professor in Leiden, the Netherlands, and a specialist in political Islam. He was Houtsma professor for Contemporary Islamic Thought in the Department of Arabic, Persian and Turkish at the University of Utrecht until his retirement in 2008.
The essay “De opmars van de islam” (“The advance of Islam”), was published in: Profetisch Perspectief, Volume 14, Spring 2009, Number 62, pp. 45-50; and on the Dutch website HoeiBoei, March 20, 2009. Though highly skeptical of Islam, Dr. Jansen makes an unusual argument on tackling the advance of Islam. From theÂ International Free Society:
In less than four centuries Christianity was able to win the Roman Empire over to itself. This happened from the bottom up, without force or violence, without government intervention or support. On the contrary, the government of the Roman Empire, by persecuting Christians from time to time, hindered Christianization with force and violence.
During the period the Roman Empire was being Christianized, the process occurred more or less in what is now known as the Middle East, plus in Europe up to the Danube and the Rhine. That doesn’t mean to say that there were no Christians outside that area. By about 300-350, to the east of the Roman Empire in Persia, a fair number of Christians could be found (later known as the Nestorians). Also just outside the borders of the Roman Empire there lived the Armenians and Georgians, who by about 300 were not only majority Christian, but had adopted Christianity as a state religion. In the Roman Empire that happened shortly thereafter.
The Muslims managed to conquer roughly the same area as that of the ancient Roman Empire in about a century, with the exception of Western Europe, where they were stopped in France by Charles Martel (732), and with the exception of Turkey and the current Balkans, where the Muslims were stopped by the Eastern Roman Empire, the Byzantines, until the middle of the fifteenth century.
Nevertheless it was a tremendous military achievement for the Muslims to conquer in such a short time a territory that stretched from Toledo to Gibraltar, Tunis, Cairo, Damascus, Baghdad, Mecca, and beyond. According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad, who was the beginning of this wave of violence, died in 632. Exactly a century later, a temporary end came to the military expansion of Islam because of the defeat of the Muslims at Poitiers in central France.
There is not a single Muslim who is unaware of this century of conquests. The military successes of that time are generally perceived by Islamic theologians as proof of the truth of Islam and the correctness of the statements made by Muhammad about himself and his mission. This century of conquest plays a major role in Islamic apologetics. If Islam were not God’s own religion, Muslims reason, and if Muhammad were not the messenger of God, they think, then these conquests would not have taken place and would not have been so successful. These conquests can be considered as akbar dalaala alla Sidq muHammad, “the best proof of the sincerity of Muhammad,” as a comment in the Qur’an at one point expresses it.
Europeans who are not used to employing this kind of reasoning in a debate are sometimes left mute when they are for the first time confronted with this assertion. At some of the meetings that purportedly contributed to the dialogue between Christianity and Islam, this argument was used. Perhaps that is, after all, a good thing, because what is the use of having a quarrel?
But it is a ridiculous Islamic fallacy. When Christianity was able to win the Middle East and Europe over, it was without using violence. Should the Christians then be impressed that others, namely the Muslims, have managed to conquer such an area using brute military violence? No, of course not. On the contrary.
We should not enter into silly contests of miracles, but may establish that a religion like this needed to make use of the force of arms to achieve approximately the same thing that Christianity managed to achieve without violence. This of course proves nothing, but does make one think, and takes away from their hands one of their main “pieces of evidence” for Islam. In their propaganda, therefore, Muslims are eager to point to the later violent nature of churches and Christianity, in the centuries after Emperor Constantine, the emperor who made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. That of course is true. Man is inclined towards all kinds of evil. Once the power of the state during the fourth century AD came into Christian hands, it was obviously made use of in a way that was considered normal in those days. But that was only after the triumph of Christianity.
Those who wish to may apologize for the later Christian violence, even though their personal share in the mistakes that were committed during those centuries is small. Because of the “confession” that is part of the Christian liturgy, Christians are perhaps trained too well in the confession of guilt, and that contrasts with the views of most Muslims, who are in fact proud of the warfare of Islam against the Christians, and of the military triumphs that were achieved, at least in the early days. Later the balance of power changed in favor of Christianity. But we need to understand fully that the Muslims could have stayed at home in Medina. They did not do so; they marched out to battle. According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad settled in Medina in 622, and since then the Muslims have increasingly engaged their neighbors with the use of arms. Time and again, the Muslims declared war on their neighbors at the borders of their ever growing empire.
That is their choice. It might also have turned out differently. They could have tried the same way which allowed Christianity to flourish in its first three centuries. That is what the Muslims did not do, instead following Muhammad as example as they went into one after another armed conflict with their neighbors, to increase the area where Islam rules. The imperialist wars of conquest these fights and battles have been part of are not something for which Muslims will ever pardoned for. To this day they consider â€” and this is what modern people find the strangest â€” that the success that the early Muslims were able to obtain on the battlefield is a proof of God’s favor. Oddly enough, the defeats suffered by the Muslims are not seen by them as a proof to the contrary. For if God is interfering with their wars, then, for example, in the conflict between Israel and the Arabs he is on the side of Israel.
Once the Muslims were the masters of the Middle East, they started â€” and it can not be said otherwise â€” to Â harass and bully powerless Christians who were in the majority in their captive nations. For the Christians of Egypt, for example, this has been defined in the History of the Patriarchs of the Egyptian Church, a book in many parts, attributed to Bishop Severus ibn al-Mukaffa. How unfortunate, sad, and incomprehensible that no one at the top of the Christian Democratic parties is prepared to read this book (which is translated into English). Did not the Romans state that the gods first blind those they want to pervert?
For the Jews in Egypt this bullying is demonstrated beyond any doubt by the so-called Genizah documents, a vast collection of correspondence, fragments of accounts, receipts, etc., from the medieval Jewish community in Cairo. Israeli intellectuals and politicians are to some extent familiar with this so-called Cairo Genizah; they at least consider it a part of the history of Judaism, unlike Christian intellectuals, theologians, priests, bishops and politicians who have never even heard of Severus ibn al-Mukaffa.
The Muslims themselves write very openly about this harassment in the manuals of the sharia and in fatwas. Historically therefore, there is no doubt whatsoever. The literary tradition in chronicles of the victims (Severus), archeology (Genizah), and the administration and reporting (Sharia) of the perpetrators totally agree. That is not often so, and therefore you might think that a crowd of scientists would have focused on this episode in history.
But that seems not to be the case. Research with a scientific approach that might anger the Muslim elite is usually ignored by Western scholars. Not because the members of that elite might raise arms themselves, for they are all nice civilized people without blood on their hands. For the bloodshed they have radicals like Mohammed B. at their disposal. They do not need to do that themselves. Light and in all ways civilized pressure on Western researchers and colleagues (to whom half a word will do) is enough to create a wall of silence.
What does the harassment consist of according to the Muslims themselves? The core of it is summed up on a list that is known as “the Pact of Omar”. There were two Caliph Omars; the first from 634 to 644, the second from 717 to 720. Both are mentioned as the monarch under whom these rules were issued. In Arabic, this list has a bit clearer name: the “conditions”, shuruuT of Omar. These are on the conditions under which the Christians, the Samaritans, and the Jews within the areas that are conquered by Islam may hold on to their religion. They must distinguish themselves by the color of their clothing or headgear as non-Muslim. This is where the yellow star for the Jews derives from. They are not allowed to carry arms or own them (and are therefore completely helpless). Riding horses is prohibited. In combination with the prohibition on possession of weapons this obviously made a trip of any magnitude impossible in the early days.
Annually every non-Muslim person had to pay a personal tax. When it was handed over, the tax collector had to strike a blow on the neck of the non-Muslim, which was meant as a symbolic beheading. The purpose of this was to remind the non-Muslim that he had been overcome by the superior Muslim armies, and even though he was spared from being a prisoner of war, enslaved or decapitated, this would only be as long as the Muslim rulers were pleased to do so. Whoever thinks that this is all a theory should read the books of Bat Ye’or, or the forthcoming book by the Australian theologian Marc Durie*. Whoever could not pay the tax had the choice between becoming Muslim or death. Even under all these humiliations the oriental Christians prefer to remain silent, and we in the West owe the greatest respect to all those who have managed to endure this century after century without becoming disloyal to their church.
The Sharia, the Islamic law, as revealed in the manuals written by Muslims for Muslims, adds a few nice things to this. Major maintenance to church buildings is no longer needed and therefore forbidden, because Islam is coming to replace Christianity. It is not permitted to build new churches and synagogues. When a Muslim accuses a Christian or Jew of “insulting the prophet”, the Christian or Jew in question usually can only be saved by becoming a Muslim. Children whose father is unknown are considered Muslim. Muslim children must be raised by Muslims, so the churches never had the opportunity to care for the children of unmarried mothers, for example, by hiding them in a monastery. The list is long, and nowadays can be found in many reference books, and it gives a pretty good idea of how false and mean people can be to one another, while always looking up piously and muttering that it is only about the implementation of the laws of God.
Christians are not allowed to marry Muslim women, although Muslims are allowed to marry Christian women. This has led to many hormone-driven conversions of young Christian men. For Christian and Jewish girls who were married off to their Muslim lord and master, this brought a lot of humiliation with it. Christians cannot be a witness for the prosecution in court cases against Muslims. This has and had enormous consequences for criminal law in Sharia. The Muslim prohibition of music and wine also affects church music and the Eucharistic wine. It is almost unbelievable, but Christians and Jews who grew up under Islamic supremacy have usually fully internalized these rules. The Dutch also internalize these rules more and more and find it self-evident that the Muslim demands in this area must be met, and according to good Dutch custom, they sometimes are even ahead of the requirements that Islam demands.
What is nice about the game is that Islam does not even explicitly make such demands. That forces Christians who live under the authority of Islam to constantly ask themselves what is allowed and what is not allowed. The inhabitants of the Middle East have developed a good feel for that, but nevertheless sometimes get it wrong. Someone who has been raised in a free country may possibly never learn this; think of the British teacher in Sudan who gave a teddy bear the name Muhammad, and then only with the greatest difficulty managed to save her life. The wonderful Roman rule nulla poena sine lege, “no punishment without [clear] law” is obviously not the case under Islamic law.
This vagueness of the rules of Sharia is highly praised by the friends of Islam as the “flexibility” of the Sharia. From the Islamic perspective this flexibility is very effective, because it forces Christians to constantly ask themselves what their Muslim masters desire of them. And it’s bizarre to see how much trouble the Dutch also go to prevent their Muslim neighbors from feeling displeased. Islam, unlike most other religions, is capable of having a decisive influence on the lives of those who do not adhere to that religion. Just grab a newspaper and see the examples.
With so many juridical rules that favor the Muslims and Islam, it is a miracle that about the year 1000 AD Muslims and Christians were still equal in number in the Middle East. Only in remote areas has Christianity managed to survive, as with the Maronites in the mountains of Lebanon. After the Crusades the percentage of Christians in the Muslim world dropped further, to about ten to fifteen percent; it remained roughly the same until the eighties of the last century. Only in exile, in the United States of America and Australia, have the Christian traditions that formed under Islamic supervision managed to maintain themselves.
After 9-11 and the millennium a lot quickly changed in this respect. In Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Turkey, the last of the remaining native Christians are trying ho get out. The hurricane of Sharia fanaticism â€” mostly called Islamic fundamentalism or radicalism by us â€” was noted by many of them much earlier than by us in the West. It will not take more than a few years before the last Arabic, Turkish or Syrian Christians will have left Nazareth, Bethlehem, Greater Syria, Turkey and Iraq. In Muslim eyes this is a historically important development, which coincides with the peaceful conquest of Europe by Islam. To us here in Europe this doesn’t matter at all; on the contrary, with boundless naÃ¯vetÃ© we are building mosques for our immigrants from the Islamic world. While the elite plays the fiddle of multiculturalism, the suburbs are already burning.
Mosques play a central role in the rise of the Islam. The mosque is not only the prayer house, it is also the command center of jihad. The daily commands to order must be issued from the pulpit in the mosque. The stoning for adultery and beheading of apostates takes place in front of the mosque. The army that marches out on jihad departs from the mosque. Since the relief of Vienna in 1683, jihad against unbelief and unbelievers is no longer practiced by states, but by private organizations like the elusive Al-Qaeda, because a state that wages jihad would be destroyed by the Western military. In contrast, masked individuals who shoot from an ambush are harder to combat.
The shame about their own cowardice has disappeared; to come out in the open to fight is characterized as simply stupid. The hiding of the heroes of the jihad between defenseless citizens is a routine maneuver. Intense complaints if the enemy also happens to hurt those citizens belong to the daily game with the ignorantly stupid Western news agencies. Kamikaze-artists who in addition to themselves bring death to dozens of others receive from the hands of Islamic clergymen like Al-Qaradawi the crown of martyrdom. This Al-Qaradawi also preaches that God’s last punishment of the Jews was carried out “by Hitler against the Jews, but the next punishment must be at the hands of the Muslims” (January 30, 2009). This Al-Qaradawi is brought to Amsterdam by influential PvdA politicians [Socialists, Labour] and seen as their mentor. Deeper than this the Netherlands cannot fall, you maybe think. But then you are mistaken.
The advance of Islam can still go much further than is the case in Western Europe at the moment, and can only be stopped when we ensure that future victims of the jihad (i.e., the population of the Netherlands and the rest of Europe) retain their freedom of expression. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, always took special care to silence his possible critics first, usually by assassination, just like his namesake Mohammed Bouyeri who carried out the assassination of Theo van Gogh. The Islamic tradition itself teaches that only after Muhammad had silenced his opponents with violence could the process of Islamization begin. It is therefore of the utmost importance that we in the Netherlands (and anywhere else in the Free World) do not go any further towards the prohibition of criticism of Islam, because Islamic ideology is not resistant to the free word.
Christianity on the contrary, is. Christianity is the religion of the word, reason, love, and freedom. Islam on the contrary is the religion of violence, coercion, fear, and obedience. The nature of man is such that it will be a close contest as to which the two religions will win.
Raymond Ibrahim: Are Judaism and Christianity as Violent as Islam?
“There is far more violence in the Bible than in the Qur’an; the idea that Islam imposed itself by the sword is a Western fiction, fabricated during the time of the Crusades when, in fact, it was Western Christians who were fighting brutal holy wars against Islam.” So announces former nun and self-professed “freelance monotheist,” Karen Armstrong. This quote sums up the single most influential argument currently serving to deflect the accusation that Islam is inherently violent and intolerant: All monotheistic religions, proponents of such an argument say, and not just Islam, have their fair share of violent and intolerant scriptures, as well as bloody histories. Thus, whenever Islam’s sacred scripturesâ€”the Qur’an first, followed by the reports on the words and deeds of Muhammad (the Hadith)â€”are highlighted as demonstrative of the religion’s innate bellicosity, the immediate rejoinder is that other scriptures, specifically those of Judeo-Christianity, are as riddled with violent passages.Â
More often than not, this argument puts an end to any discussion regarding whether violence and intolerance are unique to Islam. Instead, the default answer becomes that it is not Islam per se but rather Muslim grievance and frustrationâ€”ever exacerbated by economic, political, and social factorsâ€”that lead to violence. That this view comports perfectly with the secular West’s “materialistic” epistemology makes it all the more unquestioned.
Therefore, before condemning the Qur’an and the historical words and deeds of Islam’s prophet Muhammad for inciting violence and intolerance, Jews are counseled to consider the historical atrocities committed by their Hebrew forefathers as recorded in their own scriptures; Christians are advised to consider the brutal cycle of violence their forbears have committed in the name of their faith against both non-Christians and fellow Christians. In other words, Jews and Christians are reminded that those who live in glass houses should not be hurling stones.
But is that really the case? Is the analogy with other scriptures legitimate? Does Hebrew violence in the ancient era, and Christian violence in the medieval era, compare to or explain away the tenacity of Muslim violence in the modern era?
Violence in Jewish and Christian History
Along with Armstrong, any number of prominent writers, historians, and theologians have championed this “relativist” view. For instance, John Esposito, director of the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, wonders,
How come we keep on asking the same question, [about violence in Islam,] and don’t ask the same question about Christianity and Judaism? Jews and Christians have engaged in acts of violence. All of us have the transcendent and the dark side. … We have our own theology of hate. In mainstream Christianity and Judaism, we tend to be intolerant; we adhere to an exclusivist theology, of us versus them.
An article by Pennsylvania State University humanities professor Philip Jenkins, “Dark Passages,” delineates this position most fully. It aspires to show that the Bible is more violent than the Qur’an:
[I]n terms of ordering violence and bloodshed, any simplistic claim about the superiority of the Bible to the Koran would be wildly wrong. In fact, the Bible overflows with “texts of terror,” to borrow a phrase coined by the American theologian Phyllis Trible. The Bible contains far more verses praising or urging bloodshed than does the Koran, and biblical violence is often far more extreme, and marked by more indiscriminate savagery. … If the founding text shapes the whole religion, then Judaism and Christianity deserve the utmost condemnation as religions of savagery.
Several anecdotes from the Bible as well as from Judeo-Christian history illustrate Jenkins’ point, but two in particularâ€”one supposedly representative of Judaism, the other of Christianityâ€”are regularly mentioned and therefore deserve closer examination.Â
The military conquest of the land of Canaan by the Hebrews in about 1200 B.C.E. is often characterized as “genocide” and has all but become emblematic of biblical violence and intolerance. God told Moses:
But of the cities of these peoples which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, you shall let nothing that breathes remain alive, but you shall utterly destroy themâ€”the Hittite, Amorite, Canaanite, Perizzite, Hivite, and Jebusiteâ€”just as the Lord your God has commanded you, lest they teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done for their gods, and you sin against the Lord your God.Â
So Joshua [Moses’ successor] conquered all the land: the mountain country and the South and the lowland and the wilderness slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord, God of Israel had commanded.
As for Christianity, since it is impossible to find New Testament verses inciting violence, those who espouse the view that Christianity is as violent as Islam rely on historical events such as the Crusader wars waged by European Christians between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries. The Crusades were in fact violent and led to atrocities by the modern world’s standards under the banner of the cross and in the name of Christianity. After breaching the walls of Jerusalem in 1099, for example, the Crusaders reportedly slaughtered almost every inhabitant of the Holy City. According to the medieval chronicle, the Gesta Danorum, “the slaughter was so great that our men waded in blood up to their ankles.”Â
In light of the above, as Armstrong, Esposito, Jenkins, and others argue, why should Jews and Christians point to the Qur’an as evidence of Islam’s violence while ignoring their own scriptures and history?
Bible versus Qur’an
The answer lies in the fact that such observations confuse history and theology by conflating the temporal actions of men with what are understood to be the immutable words of God. The fundamental error is that Judeo-Christian historyâ€”which is violentâ€”is being conflated with Islamic theologyâ€”which commands violence. Of course, the three major monotheistic religions have all had their share of violence and intolerance towards the “other.” Whether this violence is ordained by God or whether warlike men merely wished it thus is the key question.
“Kill every Jew.”
Â Thanks to the Prophet of Doom
Â Â Â Passions inflamed by the atrocities perpetrated at Badr, Muhammad and his henchmen immediately turned a covetous eye toward the Yathrib Jews. The prophet besieged them and established the Nazi mindset of Islam.
Â Â Â Hitler behaved the same way. After using violence and deceit to disrupt the German political system, he schemed himself into power, opening the first concentration campâ€”Dachauâ€”within weeks of his appointment as Chancellor. The implements of his pathological rage were Storm Troopers. Steeped in the hatemongering rhetoric ofÂ Mein KampfÂ they mercilessly besieged the Jews for political and economic gain, offering them a one-way ticket to hell.
Â Â Â I believe that Adolf Hitler was influenced by Islam and inspired by the same spirit that possessed der prophet. Their doctrines were indistinguishable, as were their deeds.Â Tabari VII:85Â “After Muhammad killed many Quraysh polytheists at Badr, the Jews were envious and behaved badly toward him, saying, ‘Muhammad has not met anyone who is good at fighting. Had he met us, he would have had a real battle.’ They also infringed the treaty in various ways.”Â Since the Jews never defended themselves against Muhammad, it is inconceivable that they picked a fight. As for Jews being envious of a pirate, now terrorist, I don’t think so. But Muhammad needed an excuse. It’s hard to square genocidal rage with being God’s messenger.Â
Â Â Â According to Ishaq, the treaty:Â Ishaq:231Â “established the Jews in their religion and gave them rights to their property.”Â Consider the arrogance and ignorance of these words. An anti-Semite claimed to haveÂ “established the Jews in their religion.”Â Not only was he 1,800 years late, his “religion” was the antithesis of their Covenant. As for him granting their property rights: the Jews had lived in Yathrib for a thousand yearsâ€”they built the town into a thriving community. Muhammad had just slithered in.Â
Â Â Â Ishaq:231Â “The document stated reciprocal obligations: ‘In the name of Allah, Ar-Rahman, and Ar-Rahim. This is a treaty from Muhammad the Prophet governing relations between Muslims. They are one ummah (community) to the exclusion of all men.”Â Chairman Mo had formed his commune and named himself dictator. He told his comrades:Â “Believers are friends of one another to the exclusion of all outsiders. No separate peace shall be made when Muslims are fighting in Allah’s Cause and Muslims must avenge bloodshed in Allah’s Cause.”Â So far it’s intolerant, violent, and dictatorial…“Whenever you differ about a matter it must be referred to Allah and Muhammad.”Â But since Allah never spoke, obeying the latter sufficed.
Â Â Â Ishaq:232Â “The Jews shall contribute to the cost of war so long as they are fighting alongside the believers. The Jews have their religion, the Muslims have theirs.”Â Holy camel wreck, don’t these boys think? Allah and Muhammad have told us a hundred times that Judaism was Islam. The Torah was said to have been Islamic scripture foretelling the blessed arrival of the Arab prophet.Â
Â Â Â But not to worry about these little religious misunderstandings, Muhammad had become a warlord.Â “None of them shall go out to war unless they have Muhammad’s permission. The Jews must pay, however, for as long as the war lasts. If any dispute or controversy should arise it must be referred to Allah and Muhammad, His Apostle. If the Jews are called to make peace they must, except in the case of Holy War. Allah approves of this document. Fear Allah, and Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah.”Â The manifesto was signed with these egotistical words:Ishaq:233Â “Allah’s Apostle, the Lord of the Muslims, Leader of the Allah Fearing, Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds, the Peerless and Unequalled.”Â The egotistical Hitler had nothing on this guy.
Â Â Â The political treaty was allegedly drawn up after Muhammad’s fifty “Emigrants” invaded Yathrib, a town of some forty thousand inhabitants. Muslims claim that the Jews, who were craftsmen, merchants, and farmers, not warriors, signed the quasi-military accord. Further, they attest that the Jews agreed to acquiesce to Muhammad’s supreme authority on all matters. But since the 2nd surah said that the Jews had mocked Muhammad’s every word, a total suspension of reason is required to trust this absurd position.
Â Â Â And let’s be clear. By the seventh century the Jews had been pummeled by the best and sent into diaspora, away from their land. They had no army, and it had been 900 years since they had last scored a military victory. So the reason the first Muslims tried so hard to establish this impossible scenario was that Muhammad’s behavior toward the Jews was impossible to justify without it. And the prophet’s wanton behavior must be excused, or at least explained, or he couldn’t have been a prophet.
Â Â Â The real motivation for what was about to occur was directly related to the failure of Badr. The caravan got away. Muhammad needed money. The 8th surah was namedÂ “The Spoils of War”Â because Islam was being established through piracy. The sword had replaced words. And once a mercenary machine is built, it must be fed. Its ravenous appetite requires ever larger and more frequent fixes.
Â Â Â And the Jews were right in a way. Badr was an over-hyped temper tantrum in a man-sized sandbox. It was a clash of misfits and merchants, not titans. Muhammad, in an effort to establish his authority, oversold the whole bloody affair. A thousand angels in white turbans decapitating out-of-shape businessmen was a little hard to swallow.Â
Â Â Â Ishaq reports:Â Tabari VII:85/Ishaq:363Â “What happened to the Banu Qaynuqa [the wealthiest Jewish tribe in Yathrib] was that Muhammad assembled them in their Marketplace and said, ‘Jews, beware lest Allah brings on you the kind of vengeance which He brought on the Quraysh. Accept Islam [submit] and become Muslims [surrender]. You know that I am a Prophet. You will find me in your Scriptures and in Allah’s Covenant with you.’”Â Muhammad was proclaiming himself to be the Messiah, once again. Yet in actuality, he had become the seventh-century embodiment of the Anti-Christ.Â
Â Â Â Let’s compare Muhammad and Yahshua to see who better reflected the nature of the Biblical God, and thus had Messianic qualities. Based upon the Scriptures, Yahshua was the perfect reflection of Yahweh. He was loving, rational, miraculous, prophetic, truthful, sacrificial, and wise. Everything he said and did was in perfect harmony with the Torah, Psalms, and Prophets. He neither abused, attacked, enslaved, nor robbed anyone. Anger was demonstrated only when it was justifiedâ€”and even then it was directed against religious institutions, not men. He hated false doctrines, false gods, and false prophets to be sure. These things separated men from him. Yahshua was like Yahweh because he is Yahweh.
Â Â Â Muhammad, in contrast, was the perfect reflection of Allah. Like his spirit, he was lustful and hateful; he couldn’t perform a miracle. Nor could he conceive or fulfill a prophecy. He was irrational, deceitful, self-serving, violent, and foolish. Everything he said was a gross corruption of the Bible or a regurgitated version of his pagan past. Anger was his trademark, and he despised anyone who challenged him. He led billions away from Yahweh. He abused tens-of-thousandsâ€”stealing property, raping women, selling children into slavery, and massacring men. Muhammad was like Allah because he was Allah.
Â Â Â Recognizing this,Â Tabari VII:85/Ishaq:363Â “The Jews of the Banu Qaynuqa replied, ‘Muhammad, do you think that we are like your people? Do not be deluded by the fact that you met a people with no knowledge and you made good use of your opportunity.’”Â The Jews knew right from wrong because they were literate and schooled in their Scriptures. They knew that Muhammad was a charlatan, a false prophet pursuing his own ambition. Pirate and terrorist didn’t mesh with the Biblical profile of a prophet, much less the Messiah.Â
Â Â Â But as with all insecure liars, Muhammad attacked those who had the will and sense to expose him.Â Ishaq:363Â “Say to those who do not believe you: ‘You will be vanquished and gathered into Hell, an evil resting place. You have already had a sign by way of the two forces which met, the Apostle’s Companions and the Quraysh. One side fought in Allah’s Cause. Verily that was an example for the discerning.’”Â Indeed it was. And that’s why understanding Badr is essential if we are to discern the truth about Muhammad and thereby predict how Muslims will respond today.Â
Â Â Â Although we are never told how or why, Islamic apologists insist:Â Tabari VII:85/ Ishaq363Â “The Banu Qaynuqa were the first Jews to infringe the agreement between them and the Messenger.” “The campaign of the Prophet against the Banu Qaynuqa was in Shawwal (March 27, 624) in the second year of the Hijrah [migration from Mecca].”
Â Â Â Demonstrating the pattern that would be followed for all time by Muslim statesmen, Muhammad unilaterally reneged on the treaty he claimed governed the affairs of Yathrib. As you read these words consider the wisdom of forcing Israel to sign a land-for-peace accord with its Muslim neighbors.Â Tabari VII:86Â “Gabriel [Lucifer] brought down the following verse to the Messenger: ‘If you apprehend treachery from any people (with whom you have a treaty), retaliate by breaking off (relations) with them.’ [Qur’an 8:58] When Gabriel had finished delivering this verse, the Prophet said, ‘I fear the Banu Qaynuqa.’ It was on the basis of this verse that Muhammad advanced upon them.”Â The Qur’an from this point forward is simply a series of situational scriptures. Allah stands ever ready to endorse whatever his prophet desires. Further, Muhammad just confirmed that my interpretation of the “breaking treaties” verse was accurate. In Islam, treaties are used to lure nations into a false sense of peace so that they become easy prey.
Â Â Â Tabari VII:86/Ishaq:363Â “Allah’s Apostle besieged the Banu Qaynuqa until they surrendered at his discretion unconditionally.”Â These are just words; they look so benign on the page. Yet consider what lies beneath them. The Qaynuqa township was comprised of several thousand families, maybe more. These Jews had lived among Arabs without incident for a thousand years. They had built a life worth living. Then one day a bloodthirsty thug returned from a terrorist raid and knocked on their door. He ordered them to surrender their lives, their property, and their souls to him.Â
Â Â Â When they said no, Muhammad had his militants surround their homes. The Muslims deprived the Jews of water and food. We can appreciate their suffering because this is exactly what der fuhrer did to Jews in the Warsaw Ghettos.Â Tabari VII:86/Ishaq:363Â “Abd Allah [a Yathrib chief] rose up when Allah had put them in his power, and said, ‘Muhammad, treat my ally well, for the Qaynuqa are a confederate of the Khazraj.’ The Prophet ignored him, so Abd Allah repeated his request.”Â
Â Â Â For the centuries before Muhammad’s arrival, tribal alliances had formed the foundation of peace in the Arab world. There were no policemen or courts, as none were needed. Caravans traveled safely and people lived in harmony because they had established a means to work together and to work things out. But Muhammad was a breath away from destroying all of that. He would transform his world into a killing machine poised to plunder Arabia and then all mankind.Â Ishaq:363Â “The Prophet turned away from him so Abd Allah put his hand on the collar of the Messenger’s robe. Muhammad said, ‘Let go of me!’ He was so angry his face turned black. Then he said, ‘Damn you, let me go!’ Abd Allah replied, ‘No, by God, I will not let you go until you treat my ally humanely. There are seven hundred men among them, some with mail, who defended me from my foes when I needed their help. And now, you would mow them down in a single morning? By God I do not feel safe around here any more. I am afraid of what the future may have in store.’ So the Messenger said, ‘You can have them.’”Â Muhammad would not tolerate any affront to his supreme authority, which is why he turned black with anger. And make no mistake; he was ready, willing, and able to mow the Jews down.
Â Â Â There is a subtlety in the unabridged version of this dialog that I would like to bring to your attention. The Jews were described as having armor and coats of mail but not swords. And that is because the Qaynuqa were gold and metal smiths. They made jewelry for their wives and armor for the Arabs. And that’s why Muhammad targeted them first. They had what he covetedâ€”money and the implements of war.Â
Â Â Â When trying to understand or predict Muhammad’s behavior, always keep the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses in mind. Muhammad’s kin knew him better than we do. They successfully tempted him with money, power, and women. The “holy” prophet was even willing to renounce his god and his prophetic authority to acquire these things.
Â Â Â If you doubt the veracity of the Quraysh assessment, listen to what happened next:Â Tabari VII:87Â “The Prophet said, ‘Let them go; may Allah curse them, and may he curse Abd Allah with them.’ So the Muslims let them go. Then Muhammad [went back on his word and] gave orders to expel the Jews. Allah gave their property as booty to his Messenger. The Qaynuqa did not have any farmland, as they were goldsmiths. The Prophet took many weapons belonging to them and the tools of their trade. The person who took charge of their expulsion from Yathrib along with their children was Ubadah. He accompanied them as far as Dhubab, saying: ‘The farther you go the better.’”
Â Â Â Bukhari:V5B59N362Â “He exiled all the Qaynuqa Jews from Medina.”Â For good measure, Muhammad claimed Allah revealed this Hitlerish warning to leaders like Abd Allah:Â Ishaq:364Â “Muslims, take not Jews and Christians as friends. Whoever protects them becomes one of them, they become diseased, and will earn a similar fate.”Â In reply, Abd Allah said:Â Ishaq:364Â “‘I fear this change of circumstance may end up overtaking us.’ So Allah replied, ‘He will be sorry for his thoughts. True believers perform prostrations, they pay the tax, they bow in homage, and renounce their agreements with the Jews. They are Hezbollahâ€”Allah’s Party.’”Â Yes, it’s true: the terrorist organization “Hezbollah” is “Allah’s Party.” Surely, you are not surprised.
Â Â Â It’s a simple story with haunting repercussions. A self-proclaimed prophet fled his flea-infested mud hut of a town in shame and shuffled into a city filled with literate, moral, and prosperous Jews. The profiteer convoluted their scriptures, proclaimed himself their Messiah, and commanded them to submit to his authority. Then he besieged them, forcing them, men, women and children, into the desert to die. He stole their treasure, dividing their homes among his militants. Islam had hit a new low. But rest assured, this would not be its darkest hour.
Â Â Â Tabari VII:88Â “Some say there were three Ghazwa [Muslim raids] led by the Messenger himself and one Maghazi raiding party which he dispatched between his expedition to Badr and the campaign against the Qaynuqa.”Â Others say: one event followed the other. I share this so that you might know that I have not jumped from the viciousness of Badr to the wanton immorality of the Qaynuqa siege, skipping over a sea of pious religious activity. There was none. One “battle” followed the next. Muhammad dropped all pretenses of religious trappings. He became a pirate pursuing plunder, a terroristâ€”nothing more.
Â Â Â Before we leave this troubled time, let’s return to the surah that “approved” exiling Jews. In this passage, Allah takes “credit” for Muhammad’s actionsâ€” something that is both bizarre and sinister.Â 059.002Â “It was Allah who drove the (Jewish) People from their [Yathrib] homes and into exile. They refused to believe. You did not think that they would go away. And they imagined that their strongholds would protect them against Allah. But Allah’s Torment came at them from where they did not suspect. He terrorized them. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson, men who have eyes. This is My warning. Had I not decreed the expulsion of the Jews, banishing them into the desert, I would have punished them in this world, and in the next they shall taste the punishment of Hell Fire.”Â 059.004Â “That is because they resisted Allah and His Messenger. If any one resists Allah, verily Allah is severe in Punishment, stern in reprisal.”Â Their only crime was “resisting Islam.” By that logic all non-Muslims are fair game.Â
Â Â Â The obviously powerless, and thus delusional Islamic spirit said:Â 059.006Â “What Allah gave as booty to His Messenger, He has taken away from the Jews. For this you made no raid. Allah gives His Messenger Lordship over whom He will. Whatever booty Allah has given to Muhammad and taken away from the (Jewish) people of the townships, belongs to Allah and to His Apostle…. So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds. And fear Allah, for He is severe in Punishment.”Â
Â Â Â This all-in-one Islamic verse is the reason the “religion” cannot be fixed. It features: racism, violent hostility, banishment, destruction, thievery, wrath, terror, forced exile, severe punishment, and threats for those who resist. A doctrine this perverse will continue to fester and grow. It will infect men’s minds and souls until the whole world is consumed in war.

Â Â Â Year three of the Islamic Era opens with a story. The headline reads: “The Murder of Ka’b bin Ashraf, The Evil Genius of the Jews.” The drama begins with some boasting:Â Tabari VII:94Â “The Prophet sent messengers to the people of Medina announcing the good news of the victory granted to him by Allah at Badr. They listed the names of the polytheists they had killed.”Â Only a sick man gloats over the death of others.Â
Â Â Â I recognize that you have been overwhelmed with a steady diet of revolting stories. But I want to remind you that I am not avoiding “religious” stuff to prove Muhammad was a terrorist. There hasn’t been a single nurturing, loving, positive, tolerant, or even remotely religious thought presented in the Islamic Hadith since we arrived in Yathrib/Medina.
Â Â Â While there is no message of salvation in Islam, there is an overwhelming need for one. Simply stated: Muhammad was unable to give Muslims a reason to live so he gave them a reason to kill.Â Ishaq:365Â “Ka’b bin Ashraf was from the Jewish clan of Banu Nadir. When he heard the news, he said, ‘Can this be true? Did Muhammad actually kill these people? These were fine men. If Muhammad has slain them, then the belly of the earth is a better place for us than its surface!’”Â Ka’b understood the danger of mixing false religion, booty, and swords. The future looked ominous. For Muhammad, the only good non-Muslim was a dead one.Â
Â Â Â Ishaq:365Â “When the enemy of Allah became convinced the report was true, he set out for Mecca. He began to arouse people against Muhammad [i.e., he exposed him]. He recited verses in sympathy for the Quraysh men Muhammad had cast into the pit. Ka’b Ashraf composed the following poetic lines: ‘The blood spilled at Badr calls to its people. They cry and weep. The best men were slain and thrown into a pit.’”Â Poets were the journalists of Muhammad’s day. Apart from the Jews, most Arabians were illiterate, so poetry became the most effective means of disseminating a message. The poem Ka’b wrote on this occasion was seven lines long, and there wasn’t a violent word among them. Ka’b urged the good people of Yathrib to:Â Ishaq:365Â “Drive off that fool of yours so that you might be safe from talk that makes no sense. Why do you taunt those who mourn over their dead? They lived good lives, and as such we must remember them. But now you have become like jackals.”Â Astute, concise, and accurate.
Â Â Â Tabari VII:94Â “Then Ka’b composed poetry about some Muslim women.”Â As we have learned, chivalry had no place in Islam, so this made the prophet angry. If Ka’b had written of lust, pedophilia, and incest, I’m certain Muhammad would have been more understanding.
Â Â Â With these next words, Muhammad ordered his first assassination. While only two men were slain, the nature of his crime has far-reaching implications. Every detail haunts us today.Â Tabari VII:94Â “The Prophet said, ‘Who will rid me of Ashraf?’ Muhammad bin Maslamah, said, ‘I will rid you of him, Messenger of Allah. I will kill him.’ ‘Do it then,’ he said, ‘if you can.’”Â One of the things that makes Islam lethal is that men are ever ready to kill on the prophet’s command.Â
Â Â Â Ordering the assassination of a journalist for exposing a false prophet, a pirate, and a terrorist, is serious business. Let’s check another source to make sure we have this right.Â Bukhari:V4B52N270Â “The Prophet said, ‘Who is ready to kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has really hurt Allah and His Apostle?’ Muhammad bin Maslama said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Do you want me to kill him?’ He replied in the affirmative.”Â
Â Â Â That wasn’t any better. Let’s see what the earliest source has to say:Â Ishaq:365Â “‘Who will rid me of Ashraf?’ Maslama said, ‘I will deal with him for you. O Apostle, I will kill him.’ Muhammad said, ‘Do so if you can.’”
Â Â Â Returning to Tabari:Â Tabari VII:94Â “Muhammad bin Maslamah was quiet for three days, neither eating nor drinking more than would keep him alive. The Prophet summoned him and said, ‘Why have you given up food and drink?’ ‘O Prophet, I said something and do not know if I can fulfill it.’ ‘All that is incumbent on you is to try,’ Muhammad replied.”Â This response is chilling when you consider the subject was assassination.Â
Â Â Â Ishaq:365/Tabari VII:94Â “Muhammad bin Maslamah said, ‘O Messenger, we shall have to tell lies.’ ‘Say what you like,’ Muhammad replied. ‘You are absolved, free to say whatever you must.’”Â The moment this man walked out of the room, Muhammad must have doubled over laughing. The stooge was willing to commit murder yet he was concerned about lying. And while that’s hilarious in a macabre sort of way, consider the value of Muhammad’s absolution. Since he had just approved lying, it couldn’t have been worth the air it took to offer it. But Muhammad’s assassin believed him. And that is why false prophets and corrupt doctrines are so diabolical. Muslim militants still believe him.
Â Â Â While the circumstances are as bizarre as the orders are vile, we do have another first. Islam was the first “religion” to command its faithful to murder and deceive. But since that’s a serious charge, let’s triple-check our sources.Â Bukhari:V5B59N369Â “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?’ Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslamah got up saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like me to kill him?’ The Prophet said, ‘Yes,’ Maslamah said, ‘Then allow me to say false things in order to deceive him.’ The Prophet said, ‘You may say such things.’”
Â Â Â Returning to Tabari, we are told that MaslamahÂ “made a plan to kill Ka’b, the enemy of Allah. Before they went to him, they sent Abu ahead. When he arrived, they spoke together for a while. They recited verses to one another, for Abu was something of a poet.”Â Consider the depth of the corruption necessary for a man to lure another to his death by reciting poetry. And as you read on, think of how the Palestinians use their “we are suffering under Israeli oppression” tale of woe to deceive us today, drawing us ever closer to war.Â TabariÂ VII:94/Ishaq:367Â “Then Abu said, ‘Ka’b, I have come to you about a matter which I want you to keep secret.’ ‘Go ahead,’ he replied. ‘The arrival of the Prophet Muhammad has been an affliction for us.’ Abu said, ‘Most Arabs are now hostile to us. We cannot travel along the roads, and the result is that our families are facing ruin. We are all suffering.’ Ka’b replied, ‘I warned you, Abu, that things would turn out like this.’ Abu said, ‘I would like you to sell us some food. We will give you some collateral and make a firm contract. Please treat us generously.’”Â The Arabs who call themselves Palestinians delivered this same message to Bill Clinton during the Oslo negotiations and he gave them the guns they now use to kill Jewish women and children. Bush is following in his footsteps. Lies remain seductive.Â
Â Â Â Returning to al-Bukhari, we find Maslama having a similar chat with Ka’b.Â Bukhari:V5B59N369Â “Muhammad bin Maslama went to Ka’b and said, ‘The Prophet Muhammad demands payment of the zakat tax from us, and he has brought us nothing but trouble. I have come to borrow something from you.’ On that, Ka’b said, ‘I knew you would tire of him!’ Maslama said, ‘But since we have followed him, we do not want to leave until we see how all of this is going to turn out.’”
Â Â Â Although, Ka’b Ashraf was but one man, the circumstances surrounding his assassination provide us with an unparalleled window into the Islamic mindsetâ€”their means and motives. The deception that is being presented on behalf of Muhammad should be a warning to us today. When Muslim spokespeople deceive our media, they are following their prophet’s orders and relying on his absolution.Â
Â Â Â Now, as then, economic interests cloud our judgment.Â Tabari VII:95Â “Abu said, ‘I have some companions with me who think the same way I do. I would like to bring them to you so that you can do business with them as well. We will deposit sufficient weapons with you to guarantee the payment of our debt.’ Abu wanted to fool the Jew so that he would not be suspicious about the weapons when they came bearing them. Ka’b replied, ‘Your weapons will be a satisfactory guarantee.’ Abu went back to his companions, informed them of what had happened. He told them to grab their swords and join him. Before leaving, they went to the house of the Messenger. Muhammad walked with them as far as Baqi al-Gharqad.Â Â Â Then he sent them off, saying, ‘Go in Allah’s name; O Allah, help them [assassinate the outspoken Jew]!’ Then the Prophet went back home. It was a moonlit night, and they went forward until they reached Ka’b’s house.”Â I believe we will see Muslims use this same strategy to kill millions of Jews. They will bring American, Russian, Saudi, Syrian, Iranian, and Egyptian weapons into the West Bank under the ruse of “guaranteeing” to protect Jews from Islamic terrorists. Yet they will be used by the Islamic terrorists to slaughter Jews. It is why the “land-for-peace process” is the most direct path to World War.
Â Â Â Before we go on, recognize what Ashraf represented. Ka’b was a poet, a journalist. The reason Muhammad singled him out for assassination was to control the public debate. This murder was about politics, not religion. It was about power and controlâ€”nothing else. The model Muhammad established still performs as intended. Virtually every member of the American media is afraid to do what Ashraf did; they are afraid to expose Islam. They know that Muslims assassinate men and women with the courage to denounce their doctrine. As a result, true Islam remains a well-guarded secret.Â
Â Â Â Ishaq:368Â “Then Abu called out to him. He had recently married, and he leapt up in his bed. His wife took hold of the sheets, and said to the strange voice, ‘You are a fighting man; as only a man of war leaves his house at an hour like this.”Â Ignoring his bride’s advice, Ka’b got out of bed with all the best intentions. He walked into a trap.Â Bukhari:V5B59N369Â “His wife asked him, ‘Where are you going?’ Ka’b replied, ‘Out with Muhammad bin Maslamah and my brother Abu.’ His wife said, ‘I hear evil in his voice as if his words are dripping blood.’ Ka’b said. ‘They are my brother and my foster brother. A generous man should respond to a call at night even if invited to be killed.’”Â Islam is so corrosive, Muslims think nothing of murdering their kin.Â
Â Â Â Under the cover of darkness…Muslim:B19N4436Â “Muhammad said to his companions: ‘As he comes down, I will extend my hands towards his head, I will touch his hair and smell it. When you see that I have got hold of his head, strip him. When I hold him fast, you do your job.’ Ka’b bin Ashraf came down wrapped in his clothes.”Â Tabari VII:97Â “He spoke with them for a while. Then they said, ‘Would you like to walk with us, Ka’b, so that we can talk?’”Â Bukhari:V5B59N369Â “Muhammad said. ‘I have never smelt a better perfume than this,’ so that Ka’b would relax his guard. ‘Will you allow me to smell your head?’ Then Abu thrust his hand into the hair near his temple. When Muhammad got a strong hold of him, he said, ‘Strike the enemy of Allah!’ So they smote him.”Â
Â Â Â Ishaq:368Â “Their swords rained blows upon him, but to no avail. Muhammad bin Maslamah said, ‘When I saw that they were ineffective, I remembered a long, thin dagger which I had in my scabbard. I took hold of it. By this time the enemy of Allah had shouted so loudly lamps had been lit in the homes around us. I plunged the dagger into his breast and pressed upon it so heavily that it reached his pubic region. Allah’s enemy fell to the ground.’”
Â Â Â But dead was not enough.Â Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:368Â “We carried Ka’b’s head and brought it to Muhammad during the night. We saluted him as he stood praying and told him that we had slain Allah’s enemy. When he came out to us we cast Ashraf’s head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been assassinated and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah’s Cause. Then he spat upon our comrade’s wounds (in occult fashion) and we returned to our families. Our attack upon Allah’s enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.’”Â The last line is especially repugnant. It is not enough to murder Jews; Muslims must terrorize them as well.Â
Â Â Â The assassins recited these lines:Â Ishaq:368Â “Ka’b’s body was left prostrate [humbled in submission]. After his fall, all of the Nadir Jews were brought low. Sword in hand we cut him down. By Muhammad’s order we were sent secretly by night. Brother killing brother. We lured him to his death with guile [guile is cunning, craftiness, or deviousness]. Traveling by night, bold as lions, we went into his home. We made him taste death with our deadly swords. We sought victory for the religion of the Prophet.”Â The guile of Islam is so evil it takes your breath away.
Â Â Â Only two men in human history have spoken and then implemented the words you are going to read next: der fuhrer and der prophet.Â Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:369Â “The next morning, the Jews were in a state of fear on account of our attack upon the enemy of Allah. After the assassination, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill every Jew.’”Â It’s hard to imagine the lone prophet of a billion people uttering such words. But recognizing he did may serve to save us from the men “his religion” has poisoned. Exposing Muhammad is the surest way to protect the world from his legacy.
Â Â Â Along these lines we find another blunt reminder of Islam’s violent hatred.Â Bukhari:V1B1N6Â “Just issue orders to kill every Jew in the country.”
Â Â Â Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:369Â “Thereupon Mas’ud leapt upon Sunayna, one of the Jewish merchants with whom his family had social and commercial relations and killed him. The Muslim’s brother complained, saying, ‘Why did you kill him? You have much fat in you belly from his charity.’ Mas’ud answered, ‘By Allah, had Muhammad ordered me to murder you, my brother, I would have cut off your head.’ Wherein the brother said, ‘Any religion that can bring you to this is indeed wonderful!’ And he accepted Islam.”Â
Â Â Â Over the course of these pages we have progressed from silly creation accounts to devilish encounters with rascally spirits, from laughable corruptions of Biblical stories to lustful renditions of a perverse paradise. But we have left all that now. Muhammad has been empowered to implement Islam, and his method of choice is murder. Yet there is something far more sinister lurking behind every word. Throughout the Islamic depiction of these hell-bent activities, Team Islam consistently championed behavior we would expect from Satan. The Gospel of Christ, this is not.

Â Â Â I realize that Muhammad’s demonic nature has become oppressive. So I’m going to switch gears and see what Allah has to say for himself. Five relatively short surahs were revealed during this hellish time. Let’s begin by reviewing the passages I previously omitted fromÂ “The Confrontation.”
Â Â Â By way of introduction, in the first six verses Allah confessed to being a terrorist and pirate. He claimed responsibility for exiling the Jews, and he gave his apostle the booty. Then in the 8th verse, Allah played favorites. The Emigrants were preferred over the Ansar. Having been Muslims longer, they were better terrorists.Â 059.008Â “The spoils are for the Emigrants who were expelled from their homes and from their belongings while seeking the bounty of Allah, and aiding His Messenger: such are the sincere ones. They are loyal.”Â Mercenaries are motivated by money. When it comes to killers, you get what you pay for. Whether in business or piracy, war or terror the principle holds true today. In this light, suicide bombings are not sacrifices, simply selfish acts. The bomber is expecting dual rewards: his family will be enriched monetarily and he will be given a lifetime pass into Allah’s brothel. The first Muslim militants didn’t rob Jews and Arabs for Islam; they did it for the money.
Â Â Â When you come to understand the nature of the relationship between warlord and mercenary, all of Islam becomes clear. Muhammad was ensnared by the monster he had created. He lured disgruntled and covetous thugs into his lair by promising booty. Terror became a jobâ€”one that required ever more revenue. Mercenaries sell their souls for money. It’s as simple as that. The most loyal killers are the highest paid and the most corrupt. But when revenues run dry, as they did when the militants missed the merchants at Badr and were forced to fight the warlord became desperate. A poor tyrant is a dead one. So the Jews were robbed in lieu of the caravan. And the most loyal mercenaries received the lion’s share.Â
Â Â Â Hitler played the same game, as do all dictators. The only difference is that with early Islam, the justification was attributed to God. And that is what makes Islam more lethal than any other doctrine.
Â Â Â Reminding us that a peaceful Muslim is a hypocrite, Allah says that they are no better than the Jews:Â 059.011Â “Have you not observed the Hypocrites saying to their unbelieving brethren among the People of the Book, ‘If you are expelled [from your homes by the Muslims], we will go with you? We will never listen to anyone who acts to harm you; and if you are attacked we will help you.’ But Allah is witness that they are liars. If the Jews are expelled, never will the Hypocrites go with them; if they are attacked, they will not help them defend themselves. In truth you [good jihadist Muslims] are more fearful and awful (than they) because they are afraid of you. This is a result of the terror (sent) by Allah. They are men devoidÂ of understanding.”Â Good Muslims are to be feared. They are awful terroristsâ€”their scriptures say so.Â
Â Â Â Occasionally, I find myself checking the cover of the book just to make sure I haven’t replaced the Qur’an withÂ Mein Kampf.Â 059.014Â “The Jews will not unite and fight against you except from behind walls. They hate themselves. You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided. That is because these [Jews] are a people devoid of sense. Like those who recently preceded them [the Meccans at Badr], they [the Jews who were just sent into the desert to die] have tasted the evil result of their conduct. And (in the Hereafter there is) for them a grievous punishment.”Â Replace ghettoes with townships, Poles for Meccans, and the evil result of exile with a concentration camp and this could easily have been one of Hitler’s rousing recitals. Makes you wonder if they had the same speechwriter.Â
Â Â Â This next verse perplexed me until I came to know the nature of the spirit named “Lucifer” and his derogatory title “Satan.”Â 059.016Â “They [the Jews] are like Satan when he tells man, ‘Not to believe,’ When (man) denies, Satan says, ‘I have nothing to do with you. I fear Allah, the Lord of men and jinn!’”Â While it’s fascinating that Satan “fears Allah” and sees him as the “Lord,” this isn’t the most important insight.Â 059.017“Both [Jews and Satan] will go into the Fire of Hell, dwelling therein forever. Such is the reward of the Zalimun (disbelievers and polytheists).”Â At first blush, this is a house divided. We have seen time and again that the only spirit dark enough to have inspired Islam is Lucifer. But this verse condemns Satan to hell. How is that possible if they are one in the same?
Â Â Â For the answer to that question, let’s turn to the book that introduced the world to this demonic spirit. The name Lucifer is only mentioned once in the entire Bible. In the midst of his prophecy on World War IIIâ€”the all Islamic war to be launched against Israel in the last daysâ€”Isaiah says this about Islam and its dark spirit: “The rule of the oppressor [nagras: one who uses tyranny to harass, tax, and oppress, i.e., Islam] will come to an end. Those who smote [nakah: to strike, exile, murder, punish, or slaughter] the Jews in rage and anger with unceasing blows, and in fury subdued [terrorized] the nations with relentless aggression, will be prosecuted. Hell itself will be moved. The pompous gloating leaders, arrogantly swelling with pride and boastful speech will be brought from their graves like maggots spread out. How you have fallen, cast out of heaven, O Lucifer, the one with the brightness of the morning star. You have been cast down to the earth and diminished. You used prostration to weaken the Gentile nations. You boasted ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above God. I will abide in the meeting place on the most sacred Mount [Moriahâ€”home of Lucifer’s most flamboyant shrine: the Dome of the Rock]. You said, ‘I will make myself like the Most High.’ But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit…. The offspring of the wicked will not rise up to inherit the land [Israel] or rule over the earth.” (Isaiah 14 amplified from the original Hebrew.)Â
Â Â Â The prophet Isaiah connected many of the dots for us. He reveals that Lucifer was a fallen angel and that pride led to his ruin. He is destructive, leading men to their doom. And he wants to be worshiped in place of Yahweh. Further, he connects Lucifer to Islam by saying that he is the inspiration of those who oppress the Jews and covet their land. The fact he uses “prostration” to weaken the Gentile nations is quite a clue.
Â Â Â “Satan” is Lucifer’s title. It means “The Adversary.” John, in Revelation, writes: “I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, or Satan. He bound him for a thousand years. He shut him up so that he could no longer deceive the nations.” (Revelation 20) Satan is a derogatory title for Luciferâ€”a spirit who deceives and leads men astray. Lucifer, of course, detests “The Adversary” title, as he wants to be God, not God’s opponent. Adverse means unfavorable, unpleasant, poor, or undesirable. It’s not the kind of image a spirit who wants to be worshiped would be fond of having hung around his neck.
Â Â Â Understanding Lucifer and his disdain for the Adversary, or Satanic title, is central to understanding the spirit that underlies Islam, the spirit that enticed and inspired Muhammad to such egregious behavior. Paul, speaking to the Corinthians of the false doctrine and prophet to come said: “I am concerned that just as Eve was deceived and beguiled by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may someday be corrupted. For if someone comes and preaches another Yahshua who is different, if you receive another spirit, or hear a different Gospel, you may be susceptible. I may not possess eloquent speech or be an Apostle who requires your obedience, but I know what is true and have manifest it to you…. The truth of Christ is in me. And I will continue doing this in order to cut the ground from under those who would seize the opportunity to boast about. For such men are false prophets, deceitful teachers, masquerading as messengers of God. And no wonder, for Satan transfigures and disguises himself into an angel of light [i.e., Lucifer pretends to be Gabriel].” (2 Corinthians 11 amplified from the original Greek.)Â
Â Â Â Paul is saying that Lucifer will transform himself into the image of an angel and deceive men using a false prophet. The messenger will be boastful, yet speak eloquently; he will be deceitful, yet require obedience. He will come with a new Gospel. He is speaking of Muhammad and his Qur’an.Â
Â Â Â By putting these things together we discover that Lucifer, as presented in the Bible, is a perfect match for Allah, the demented and deceitful spirit of the Qur’an. And we know that Lucifer hates the Satanic title. So now, the only pieces of the puzzle that remain are why Lucifer chose to disguise himself as Gabriel and why he chose Muhammad to be his prophet.Â
Â Â Â The Hebrew word for “angel” means “messenger.” And the angel named Gabriel was only called to deliver three messages. The first is to Daniel. He told the prophet the exact day the Messiah would enter Jerusalem, five hundred years in advance of the occasion. He spoke of the destruction of the Temple, which followed Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. Then Gabriel told Daniel that Satan would cause great devastation that he would defile Mount Moriah in the last days. The second and then final time we hear from Gabriel is in the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke. Gabriel relays a message heralding the birth of John the Baptistâ€”the one who announced the Messiah’s arrival. And he told Mary she would give birth to Yahshua, the Son of Yahweh. In other words, Gabriel had only one job: announce the arrival of the Messiah. Lucifer chose to impersonate him because his Muhammad was the counterfeit Messiah. So now we know who the players are and why they are acting so devilishly.Â
Â Â Â Returning to the Qur’an we learn that even the mountains fear Allah.Â 059.021Â “Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, verily, you would have seen it humble itself, turn desolate and cleave asunder, splitting in two for fear of Allah. Such are these parables which We propound to men, that they may reflect.”Â Sounds like Yahweh on Sinai; so Allah whines, “Me too!”
Â Â Â The “Confrontation” ends with a self-indulgent love fest. Since the Qur’an is supposed to be Allah speaking, he sure seems to have a lofty view of himself. It’s no wonder pride was Lucifer’s undoing.Â 059.022Â “Allah is He, no other Ilah may be worshiped; Who knows both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. He is Allah, Whom there is no other Ilah; the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Security, the Guardian of Faith, the Majestic, the Irresistible, the Superb, the Compeller: Glory to Allah! He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colors). To Him belong the Best Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth declares His Praises and Glory: and He is the Mighty, the Wise.”Â Pretty flowery language for a demon impersonating a rock idol. And it’s a wholly deceptive, even beguiling, description of the author of the opening salvo of this very surah. As I recall, Allah confessed to being a racist, terrorist thief. In fact, he was proud of it.
Â Â Â Moving on, we find that the 61st surah is equally violent and delusional. Its opening salvo blasts away at the prophet’s favorite subject, “fighting.”061.002Â “O Muslims, why say one thing and do another? Grievously odious and hateful is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not. Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in a battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.”Â While that might explain why there were so many concrete statues of Saddam Hussein, “Allah “loving those who fight” destroys the myth that Islam is a religion.Â
Â Â Â Coveting that which is Yahweh’s, Allah claimed that Moses was really Muhammad, practicing Islam, in an earlier life.Â 061.005Â “And (remember), Moses said: ‘O my people, why do you annoy and insult me, when you well know that I am Allah’s Messenger?’ Then when they turned away, Allah caused them to be deceived.”Â
Â Â Â According to Allah, even Jesus was converted to Islam…061.006Â “And Jesus, the son of Mary, said: ‘Children of Israel, I am the Messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming that (which was revealed) before me in the Torah, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad, the Praised One.’ But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, ‘this is sorcery!’”Â Search as I might, I can’t find this in my Bible. But it sure makes Paul’s warning ring true.Â
Â Â Â 061.007Â “Who does greater wrong than one who invents falsehood against Allah, even as he is being summoned to Islam? And Allah guides not the disbelievers. Their intention is to extinguish Allah’s Light (by blowing) with their mouths: But Allah will complete His Light, even though the Unbelievers detest (it). It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), that he may make it conquer all religion, even though the disbelievers hate (it).”Â The phrase “conquer all religion” should be fair warning to the ecumenical movement, those who say all faiths present different paths to the same God, and should therefore be approached with respect and tolerance. Further, in light of what we just read in Isaiah, this pronouncement is a dead ringer for Lucifer.
Â Â Â It’s time to make a deal. Sell your soul to this devil and he will escort you into the gardens of delight.Â 061.010Â “Believers, shall I lead you to a bargain or trade that will save you from a painful torment? That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive and fight in the Cause of Allah with your property and your lives: That will be best for you, if you but knew!”Â Since Allah’s Cause is defined as fighting or jihad, this is a call to martyrdomâ€”it’s the anthem of suicide bombers.Â 061.012Â “He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Eden: that is indeed the Supreme Achievement. And another (favor) which you love: help from Allah for a speedy victory over your enemies.”Â Yes, Muslim militants love a speedy victory. Time is money.
Â Â Â 061.014Â “O Muslims! Be helpers of Allah: As Jesus the son of Mary said to the Disciples, ‘Who will be my helpers (in the Cause) of Allah?’ Said the disciples, ‘We are Allah’s helpers!’ Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the victorious.”Â Allah is saying, “Fight for me and I will give you the power to kill my enemiesâ€”the Children of Israel.”
Â Â Â So that we might know why the Qur’an was so poorly written, Allah began the 62nd surah proclaiming:Â 062.002Â “It is He Who has sent to the unlettered ones a Messenger from among them, to rehearse and recite to them His Verses, to purify them, and to instruct them in the Book and Sunnah (of Muhammad); they had been in manifest error.”Â The Qur’an is an illiterate rehearsing scripture to the unlettered. Perfect.
Â Â Â This next verse is vintage Muhammad. It’s proof he and his wannabe god were racists.Â 062.005Â “The likeness of those who are entrusted with the Taurat (Torah), who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of an ass which carries huge books (but understands them not). Wretched is the likeness of folk who deny the Verses of Allah. And Allah guides not disbelievers.”Â Allah just had his illiterate prophet call the literate Jews “asses” for carrying books they did not understand. Astonishing. And not that it’s important, but there’s a contradiction. Earlier, Allah said that Jews were swine and monkeys, not asses.Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â For a “book” so dependant on the Jews and their scripture, Allah and his unlettered pen pal sure don’t seem to like them very much.Â 062.006Â “Say: ‘You Jews! If you think that you are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then desire death, if you are truthful!’ But never will they long (for death), because of what their hands have done before them! Allah knows well the polytheists! Say: ‘The Death from which you flee will truly overtake you. Then will you be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open, and He will tell you the things that you did!’”Â How’s that for a bottom line? Desire death if you are truthful.
Â Â Â Now that Allah has helped his prophet condemn Jews, it’s time to turn on the “bad” Muslimsâ€”those nasty hypocrites. In a surah named in their honor, we read:Â 063.001Â “When the Hypocrites come to you they say, ‘We bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of Allah.’ Allah knows you are His Messenger, and Allah bears witness the Hypocrites are indeed liars.”Â Which means they were liars when they: “bore witness that Muhammad was the Messenger of Allah.”Â
Â Â Â 063.002Â “They have made their oaths a screen, thus they obstruct (men) from the Path of Allah: truly evil are their deeds. That is because they believed, then they rejected Faith: So a seal was set on their hearts: therefore they understand not.”Â I’m curious. If Muhammad was so wonderful, how could so many of those who lived in his presence have rejected him and his religion? This avalanche of abandonment was clearly the reason Muhammad had to tell his militants:Â Bukhari:V4B52N260Â “If a Muslim discards his faith, kill him.”Â Islam must be forced on people. No one in their right mind chooses it. And once in, no one leaves this club alive.Â
Â Â Â 063.004Â “When you look at them, their bodies please you; and when they speak, you listen to their words. They are pieces of wood propped up. They think every cry is against them. They are the enemies; so beware of them. The curse of Allah is on them! Allah will destroy them. How are they deluded and perverted?”Â Since Allah repeatedly defines “bad” Muslim hypocrites as those unwilling to leave their homes to fight, peaceful Muslims ought to know that their god has “cursed” them, that they are his “enemy,” and that he wants to “destroy” them because they’re “perverted.”Â
Â Â Â So how does all of this square with predestination?Â 063.006Â “It is equal to them whether you ask forgiveness or not. Allah will never forgive them. Allah does not forgive the transgressing people.”Â Then whom, might I ask, does he forgive? Perfect people like Muhammad? Think about the absurdity of this statement. Only transgressors need forgiveness, yet they will receive none. So only those who don’t need to be forgiven will be forgiven for what they didn’t need to be forgiven for. No one is going to accuse Allah of being smart.
Â Â Â The Qur’an suggests that Muhammad and his Meccan emigrants had overstayed their welcome.Â 063.007Â “They are the ones who say, ‘Spend nothing on those who are with Allah’s Messenger so that they will desert him.’ But to Allah belong the treasures of the earth; but the Hypocrites understand not. They say, ‘If we return to Medina, surely the more honorable (element) will expel the meaner (i.e., Muhammad).’ But honor, power and glory belong to Allah and His Messenger.”Â It’s interesting that the first Muslims considered Muhammad “mean.” They also recognized that his parasites, or mercenaries, were only hanging around for the money. And why, if the “treasures of the earth” belonged to Allah, did Abu Bakr prowl the streets begging Jews to “give Allah a good loan?”
Â Â Â Since the established families of Yathrib were unwilling to finance the prophet’s piracy, Allah repeatedly ordered Muslims to pay the zakat, a tax of which Muhammad was beneficiary.Â 063.010Â “Spend out of the substance [booty] which We gave you before death comes and you say, ‘My Lord, why didn’t You give me respite for a little while? I wish I had given (more).’”Â Financing the prophet’s terrorist campaigns was now on Allah’s list of “good deeds.”
Â Â Â The Noble Qur’an footnotes a Bukhari Hadith to explain this verse.Â “The Prophet said, ‘Everyday two angels come down from heaven. One says, “O Allah, reward every person who spends in Your Cause.”Â The other says,Â “O Allah, destroy every miser.”’”Â
Â Â Â Moving on to the 64th surah, we discover that the prophet is losing believers in droves. He remains fixated on those who are rejecting of Islam:064.005Â “Has not the story reached you of those who disbelieved before? They tasted the ill effects of their unbelief. They tasted a painful torment because there came to them messengers with Clear Proofs, but they said: ‘Shall (mere) human beings direct us?’ So they rejected and turned away. But Allah can do without (them): Allah is Rich, the Owner of Praise. Those who reject Faith and treat Our Signs as falsehoods, they will be Companions of the Fire, to dwell therein forever: an evil resort.”Â If Allah is indeed Satan, he can’t do without man. He needs men to doing his bidding.Â
Â Â Â The following verse establishes Allah as the lord of disasters, pain, and suffering, of disease, failure, and heartache.Â 064.011Â “No calamity occurs, no affliction comes, except by the decision and preordainment of Allah.”Â 064.012Â “So obey Allah, and obey His Messenger (Muhammad): but if you turn back, the duty of Our Messenger devolves only to convey. Allah! There is no ilah but He.”Â
Â Â Â Returning to the hypocrites, we are told that they are lurking everywhere.Â 064.014Â “Believers, truly, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you: so beware of them! … Your wealth and your children are only a trial.”Â Islam is twisted and inverted. Wives and children are a blessing, not enemiesâ€”a joy, not a trial.
Â Â Â Ever eager to fleece his flock, the profiteer recited:Â 064.016Â “Fear Allah as much as you can; listen and obey. Pay the zakat. Those saved from covetousness prosper. If you loan to Allah a beautiful loan, He will double it. He will grant Forgiveness: for Allah is most ready to appreciate.”Â Just think of what this guy could have done with cable TV. “Step right up and buy your forgiveness here.”

Â Â Â Against this backdrop of money-grubbing scriptures, the terrorist raids continued.Â Tabari VII:98Â “The Messenger ordered Zayd [the prophet’s former slave turned adoptive son] out on a raid in which he captured a Quraysh caravan led by Abu Sufyan at a watering place in Najd.”Proving that they were civilian businessmen, and thus a terrorist target…“A number of their merchants set out with a large amount of silver since this was the main part of their merchandise. They hired a man to guide them along this route. Zayd captured the caravan and its goods but was unable to capture the men. He brought the caravan to the Prophet.”Â If this isn’t piracy and terror the words need to be redefined.
Â Â Â Tabari VII:98Â “The reason for this expedition was that the Quraysh said, ‘Muhammad has damaged our trade, and sits astride our road. If we stay in Mecca we will consume our capital.’ …The news of the caravan reached the Prophet, as did the information that it contained much wealth and silver vessels. Zayd therefore intercepted it and made himself master of their caravan. The fifth (khums) was twenty thousand dirhams; Allah’s Apostle took it and divided the other four fifths among the members of the raiding party. Furat was taken captive. They said to him. ‘If you accept Islam the Messenger will not kill you.’”Â Submit or die has been the modus operandi of Islam ever since. It is a most interesting form of evangelism.
Â Â Â Another terrorist raid under their belts, it was time for murder.Â “The Killing of Abu Rafi the Jew”Â is the next Hadith.Â Tabari VII:99Â “In this year, it is said, the killing of Abu Rafi the Jew took place. The reason for his being killed was, it is said, that he used to take the part of Ka’b bin Ashraf against the Messenger. The Prophet is said to have sent Abd Allah bin Atik against him in the middle of Jumada (November, 624).”Muhammad had a rougher time controlling the media than today’s terrorists do. Now Muslims just lie, and the press laps it up. There aren’t five journalists in the Free World with the will and wisdom to expose Islam.
Â Â Â “The Messenger sent some Ansar under the command of Abd Allah and Abd Allah against Abu the Jew. Abu Rafi used to injure and wrong the Prophet.”Â Bukhari:V4B52N264Â “One of them set out and entered their fort. He said, ‘I hid myself in a stable for their animals. They closed the gate. Later they lost a donkey. I went out with them, pretending to look for it. They found the donkey and went home. I went with them.”Â
Â Â Â Tabari provides a slightly different twist, one more in keeping with today’s jihadists:Â “Abd Allah said to the others, ‘Stay where you are, and I will go and ingratiate myself with the doorkeeper to gain entrance.’ When he was close to the door, he wrapped himself in his cloak as though he were relieving himself. The doorkeeper called, ‘You there, if you want in, come now because I want to shut the gate.’ I went in and hid myself in the donkey pen.”
Â Â Â Returning to Bukhari:Â “They closed the gate at night, and kept its keys in a small window where I could see them. When the people slept, I took the keys and opened the door. Abu Rafi had company that night but when they left I went to him.”Â Then, revealing the reason that Islam must be exposed, Tabari reports:Â Tabari VII:100Â “Every time I opened a door, I shut it behind me from the inside, saying to myself, ‘If they become aware, they will not have time to stop me from killing him.’ When I reached Rafi he was in a dark room with his family. As I did not know where he was in the room, I said, ‘O Abu Rafi.’ When he replied, I proceeded toward the voice and gave him a blow with my sword. He shouted and I came back, pretending to be a helper. I said, ‘O Abu,’ changing the tone of my voice. He asked me, ‘I don’t know who came to strike me with his sword.’ Then I drove my sword into his belly and pushed it forcibly till it touched the bone. I hit him again and covered him with wounds, but I could not kill him, so I thrust the point of my sword into his stomach until it came out through his back. At that, I knew that I had killed him [in front of his wife and children].”
Â Â Â “I came out, filled with puzzlement, and went towards a ladder in order to get down but I fell into a moonlit night and sprained my foot. I bound it with my turban and moved on. I came to my companions and said, ‘By Allah, I will not leave till I hear the wailing of their women.’ So, I did not move till I heard them crying for Abu, the Jewish merchant. I said, ‘Deliverance! Allah has killed Abu Rafi.’ I got up, feeling no ailment, and proceeded till we came upon the Prophet and informed him.”Â Each time Muslims kill they absolve themselves of the crime and blame their “god.” While calling Allah an assassin seems odd, it proves my theory. Allah needs men to do his bidding. Satan is helpless without stooges.
Â Â Â And, lest we forget, Muhammad had now become a serial killer. Usually such men are condemned, locked up, and repudiated. This one was followed.
Â Â Â The next Hadith turns murder into a contest.Â Tabari VII:101Â “Abu Rafi was one of those who had mustered ahzab against the Prophet. The Aws had killed Ka’b Ashraf on account of his enmity to the Messenger and his inciting people against him, so the Khazraj asked the Prophet for permission to kill Sallam Huqayq, who was in Khaybar. He granted this.”Â The Ansar were comprised of Aws and Khazraj. They were vying for the prophet’s attention by killing Jewish poets. It was an ungodly game.
Â Â Â Tabari VII:101/Ishaq:482Â “One of the favors which Allah conferred upon his Prophet was that these two tribes of the Ansar, the Aws and the Khazraj, used to vie with one another like stallions to carry out the will of Muhammad. The Aws did not do anything which benefited him without the Khazraj saying, ‘By Allah they will not gain superiority over us in Islam in the eyes of the Messenger by doing this.’ And they would not cease until they had done something similar. Thus when the Aws killed Ka’b Ashraf on account of his hostility to Muhammad, the Khazraj conferred to find a man comparable to Ka’b in hostility and called to mind Sallam Huqayq in Khaybar. They asked the Prophet for permission to kill him, and it was granted.”Â Proving, once again, that the best Muslims are killers.Â
Â Â Â Deception was a hallmark of this assassination as had been in the others. So was cowardice.Â Tabari VII:101/Ishaq:483Â “His wife came out and we told her that we were Arabs in search of supplies. When we entered, we bolted the door on her so she gave a shout to warn him of our presence. We rushed upon him with our swords as he lay in his bed. He took his pillow and tried to fend us off. Abd Allah thrust his sword into his stomach and transfixed him while he was shouting, ‘Enough! Enough!’ At once we went out but Abd Allah had bad eyesight, and he fell off the stairway, bruising his leg or arm. ‘How shall we know that the enemy of Allah is dead?’ one of us asked. ‘I will go and look,’ one replied. He set off and mingled with the people. He said, ‘I found him with the men of the Jews, and with his wife, who had a lamp in her hand, peering into his face. She said, ‘By the God of the Jews, he is dead.’ I never heard any more pleasing words than these. We went to the Messenger of Allah and told him that we had killed the enemy of Allah. We disagreed in his presence about the killing of Sallam, each of us claiming to have done it. The Prophet said, ‘Bring me your swords.’ We did and he looked at them. He said, ‘This sword of Abd Allah killed him. I can see the marks left by bones on it.’”
Â Â Â There are no words more pleasing to a good Muslim than “a Jew is dead.” The first followers of this perverse doctrine, Muhammad’s Disciples, had been so corrupted by Islam they believed they were doing “god” a service by eliminating Jews. They fought over who should be given “credit” for the kill. It is why Christ warned his disciples: “A time is coming when everyone who kills you will think that he is offering service to God.” (John 16:2)
Â Â Â To celebrate Sallam’s murder, Muslim militants sang the following chorus:Â Ishaq:483Â “Allah, what a fine band you have, one willing to kill Sallam and Ashraf! We went with sharp swords, like fighting lions. We came upon their homes and made them drink death with our swift-slaying swords. Looking for the victory of our Prophet’s religion, we ignored every risk.”

Â Â Â The “poligious” doctrine of Islamâ€”that caustic blend of politics and religionâ€”was the motivation behind the forced banishment of the Qaynuqa, a Jewish township larger than Mecca. It enabled Muhammad to instigate the murder of two Jewish journalists. It inspired the grotesque slaying of a Jewish merchant. Muhammad, in cahoots with his demonic spirit, lured men into hellish duty with the dual enticements of worldly booty and heavenly lust. Islam corroded minds and corrupted souls beyond salvation. The Islamic economy and governance was based upon piracy and militancy. Muslim mercenaries could no longer distinguish right from wrong, truth from deceit. Their “religotic” (politicized religion) created the culture needed to motivate men to madness and murder. It still does.Â
Â Â Â Hopefully, you have not felt the sting of Islamic terror personally. As such, you may be able to compartmentalize the horror of these events. And that’s understandable. We do not know how many Qaynuqa women and children died after being thrown into the desert. We can only imagine how they suffered. And up to this point, Muhammad’s militants had slaughtered barely a hundred innocent souls. By the close of the second year of the Islamic Era, the first Muslim marauders were still small-time tyrants. Close your eyes, set down the book, and they’ll all just fade away…
Â Â Â Sorry. It won’t work that way. We ignore Islam at our peril. Undiagnosed and untreated, evil festers and grows. Like a cancer, it leaves nothing but death and destruction in its wake. Whether you view the world through the prism of the Islamic scriptures, the Bible, or history, the inevitable consequence of our present course will lead to World War III. I believe over a billion people will die in the first third of the twenty-first century as a result of our ignorance and our tolerance of Islam. Biological and nuclear weapons will be unleashed in a war started by Muslims in pursuit of Jews. It will create hell on earth and destroy the world as we know it.
Â Â Â The Qur’an and Hadith serve as proof that Islam is destructive. With every page, this is made abundantly clear. Left to its own devices it’s obvious where Islam will lead. Muhammad’s legacy is terror. From the Biblical perspective, the prophecies pertaining to World War III are laid out in the last chapter, so for now, let’s focus on the historical justification for my rather dire prediction. To stress the consequence of tolerating Islam, I’m going to share some quotations from the “gospel” of the twentieth century’s most famous poligious doctrine. The prophet’s name was Adolf Hitler. His book wasÂ Mein Kampf. His religotic was Nazism. The consequence was World War II.
Â Â Â Even in the tolerant realm of political correctness, Nazism is rebuked. So, if I can demonstrate that apart from time and place, Nazism is virtually identical to Islam, I will have removed the veil of religiosity that protects Islam from scrutiny. Even pacifists understand the consequence of ignoring Hitler. By showing thatÂ Mein KampfÂ and the Qur’an were authored by the same spirit, and that their motives, mission, and means were indistinguishable, I will have made exposing and rebuking Islam relevant, asÂ Mein KampfÂ led to the Holocaust and the brutal death of 55 million people. By proving that Nazism was founded as a religion, as a tool a covetous man used to satiate his personal craving for power, sex, and money, I will have awakened an unquenchable desire to eradicate the poligious dogma that inspired itâ€”Islamâ€”before it obliterates all mankind. In that light, I beg your indulgence.
Â Â Â Mein KampfÂ is a 1000-page rant. I will be revealing passages (edited of verbosity) found in the 1939 English translation I urge you to read: Reynal & Hitchcock, by Houghton Mifflin. We have already reviewed the introduction, one written immediately after the “land for peace” treaty severed Czechoslovakia, starting World War II. The translators warned that ignoring the “Nazi Gospel” would have catastrophic consequences. They were right. To discover why they came to that conclusion and to see why I’m convinced that ignoring the “Islamic Gospel” will lead to World War III, let’s dive into the words, world, and mind of Adolf Hitler and compare them to Muhammad’s.
Â Â Â Mein KampfÂ was written from Landsberg on the Lech prison in 1924, precisely 1300 years after the Qaynuqa Jews were abused so horrifically in 624 A.D. It was dedicated to sixteen martyrs, men Hitler praised as:Â Mein Kampf:DedicationÂ “Dead heroes, blood witnesses who continue to serve as brilliant examples for the followers of our movement. They were steadfast in their belief in the resurrection of their people.”Â The Muslim martyrs at Badr served Muhammad just as aptly. And I’m sure you noticed Hitler’s predilection for religious terms. In his opening salvo he unleashed: “witnesses,” “serve,” “examples,” “followers,” “movement,” “steadfast,” “belief,” and “resurrection.” It wasn’t by chance.Â
Â Â Â Although better written and more insightful, the object and style ofÂ Mein KampfÂ is identical to the Qur’an and Hadith.Â Mein Kampf:PrefaceÂ “I resolved to set forth, in two volumes, the object of our movement and to draw a picture of its development. From this more can be learned than from any purely doctrinary treatise.”Â Mein Kampf, like the Qur’an, was written in first person. The royal “our” in the preceding quote was collective because Hitler saw himself as being spiritually guided. Although much ofÂ Mein KampfÂ was plagiarized, its formulation and proclamation, like Islam, was the work of a solitary manâ€”one inspired by a dark, deceitful, hateful, and violent spirit.
Â Â Â The Qur’an and Hadith were never meant for non-Muslims to read.Â Mein Kampf:PrefaceÂ “With this work I do not address myself to strangers, but to those adherents of the movement who belong to it with their hearts and whose reason now seeks a more intimate enlightenment.”Â Muhammad ordered Muslims not to take the Qur’an with them when they conquered new lands.Â Bukhari:V4B52N233Â “Allah’s Apostle forbade the people to travel to a hostile country carrying copies of the Qur’an.”Â He said:Â “Unbelievers will never understand our signs and revelations.”
Â Â Â Muhammad also claimed that nothing should be written if it could be spoken. He believed that eloquent speech had been the magic that had enabled his destiny. His Qur’an was, after all, an oral recital. The Hadith remains nothing more than an oral report. Hitler tells us why:Â Mein Kampf:Preface“I know that one is able to win people far more by the spoken word than by the written word. Every great movement on this globe owes its rise to great speakers and not to writers.”Â Muslims and Nazis alike report that men swooned in their founder’s presence as he so passionately called them to his cause. But I must say in Hitler’s defense, he was a much more coherent writer than was Allah.Â
Â Â Â But alas:Â Mein Kampf:PrefaceÂ “Nevertheless, the basic elements of a doctrine must be set down in permanent form in order that it may be represented in the same way and in unity.”Â In other words: “I want my prophetic words to survive me.” And that’s because both men wanted to outlive those who tormented, mocked, and rejected them.Â Mein Kampf:PrefaceÂ “Mein Kampf will serve to destroy the evil legends created about my person by the Jewish press.”
Â Â Â Muhammad and Hitler saw themselves and their followers as a nation in distress, one that could, should, and would righteously steal what belonged to others. Hitler said:Â Mein Kampf:1“The distress of the nation gives us the moral right to acquire foreign soil and territory. The sword is then the plow. From the tears of war there grows the daily bread for generations to come.”Â Muhammad said:Â 013.041Â “Do they not see Us advancing from all sides into the land (of the disbelievers), reducing its borders (by giving it to believers in war victories)?”Â Inspiring militants to become plundering pirates, both religotics turned their adherents into parasites. Their economies became dependent upon booty. Honest labor was confined to fighting.
Â Â Â Mein Kampf:PrefaceÂ “That also gave me the opportunity to describe my own development as far as it is necessary to understand these volumes.”Â The Qur’an screams out to us today, testifying that Muhammad was an abused child, hating all who withheld the power and wealth he craved.Â Mein KampfÂ is more direct. Hitler admits to being abused, orphaned, and poor. He tells us how this led him to create his new religion, and how he would use it to attack both his powerful peers and the defenseless Jews. As such, readingÂ Mein KampfÂ is like having a conversation with Muhammad.Â
Â Â Â Hitler and Muhammad rose from tiny towns they ultimately attacked.Â Mein Kampf:1“Today I consider it my good fortune that Fate designated the small town of Braunau as the place of my birth.”Â Der fuhrer called his guiding spirit “Fate” and “Nature.” Both were always capitalized as if divine and used interchangeably with “Lord” and “God.” The latter words are found throughout English translations of the Bible and Qur’an. And both have pagan origins. “Lord” was the title of “Baal,” the Canaanite god. The English “God” is derived from the Germanic “Gott.” Pagan Aryans coined the term in reference to the dark spirits they worshiped. Lucifer would be honored with either moniker.
Â Â Â Like Muhammad, Hitler was orphaned and abused. He described his youth in these terms:Â Mein Kampf:6Â “endless poverty, misery and hardship, want and sorrow.”Â Mein Kampf:7Â “I was a quarrelsome boy.”Â Mein Kampf:29Â “Hunger was my faithful guard, the only friend who never left me.”Â Mein Kampf:33Â “I have felt poverty’s grip, a murderous viper with poisonous fangs.”Â Mein Kampf:32Â “The relentless struggle killed all pity. My painful existence suffocated any feeling of sympathy.”Â Remember these words.
Â Â Â Hitler described his torment:Â Mein Kampf:43Â “I was familiar with nothing but filth and despised all authority.”Â Mein Kampf:39Â “What grew out of this unhappiness and misery, of this filth and decay, was no longer a human being. I possessed a ruthless resolution to destroy the incurable social tumors.”Â I believe that this is how Muhammad felt as he endured the anguish of poverty and the unrelenting harshness of the Arabian desert. He came to despise all authority except his own.
Â Â Â Understanding Hitler’s motivation is important because ultimately the two most diabolical doctrines ever conceived by man were the direct result of an abused childhood. A festering rage caused both founders to covet what they were denied and hate those they viewed responsible for their torment.
Â Â Â Speaking of his abusive father, Hitler said,Â Mein Kampf:14Â “The old man became embittered. I got the worst of it as he relentlessly began to enforce his authority.”Â Mein Kampf:38Â “He became familiar with alcohol, coming home drunk and brutal. God have mercy on the scenes which followed. I witnessed it all personally, hundreds of times with disgust and indignation. Even now I shudder when I think of those pitiful times. The pictures are haunting. But Fate will take its revenge.”Â The most telling line is:Â “Fate will take its revenge.”Â Hitler, like Muhammad was fatalistic. Der fuhrer named his guiding spirit “Fate” while the prophet usurped every characteristic of Manat, the Arab goddess of fate. Both believed that their “god” would help them avenge their tormented youth. They preached predestination because it eliminates choice.
Â Â Â Being abandoned shaped the boys who would become tyrants:Â Mein Kampf:24Â “When I was thirteen my father died quite suddenly.Â Mein Kampf:25Â “Two years later my mother’s death put a sudden end to all my plans. Her illness exhausted our meager funds. The orphan’s pension I received was not nearly enough for me to live on. I hoped to wrest from Fate some success; I needed to become something.”Â This was Muhammad’s motivation. It resonates throughout the Qur’an and Hadith. He was insecure and needed to prove to the world that he was somebody.Â
Â Â Â Although his behavior was criminal and immoral, der fuhrer, like der prophet, saw himself as a bastion of virtue.Â Mein Kampf:41Â “I was shocked by the ethical and moral crudity of my comrades, and by their low level of spiritual development.”Â Mein Kampf:41Â “Not a shred of humanity is left, not a single institution is unattacked, from teacher to head of state, from religion to morality. Everything is abused, pulled down in the nastiest manner into filth and depravity.”
Â Â Â Muhammad saw Arabs as either good fighters in his cause, useless hypocrites, or enemy infidels. Hitler’s view was no different.Â Mein Kampf:16Â “I saw the world in three groups: the fighters, the lukewarm, and the traitors.”Â Both doctrines were uncompromising, intolerant, born in blood, and propelled by sword.
Â Â Â The means to Hitler’s madness was his corruption of history and his wanton disregard for facts and chronology. This was identical to Muhammad’s dimwitted rape of the Bible.Â Mein Kampf:18Â “I learned how to forecast the future by recalling the past…. The chronology of history does not matter. It is the search for forces which cause effects…. Remember that which is important and forget the rest.”Â
Â Â Â The Aryan dictator twisted the past to serve his future, just like the Arab pirate before him.Â Mein Kampf:47Â “Content is registered in the mind, not according to the sequence it happened or the sequence in which the books were read, but just as small pieces of a mosaic that must be put into place.”Â While Muhammad wasn’t this articulate or philosophical, he did have a penchant for taking unrelated pieces of Jewish history and rearranging them to his liking.
Â Â Â Mein KampfÂ and the Qur’an were comprised of the same raw material and crafted in the same fashion.Â Mein Kampf:49Â “As soon as the knowledge is gained it finds its due place in the picture the imagination has created. It acts as a supplement, enhancing truth and clarity.”Â Both men used their twisted histories to befuddle their assailants.Â Mein Kampf:49Â “A public speaker will never convincingly confront a contradiction without such information. A knowledge of history can be used to confound an adversary.”Â And they used the Bible to make the ungodly sound religious.Â Mein Kampf:51Â “The more the linguistic tohuwabohu (Hebrew, Genesis 1:2â€”meaning chaos, confusion, and hubbub) ate into the existing government, the faster they heralded a day of doom for their Babylonian realm.”Â Muhammad’s favorite prediction was of the Day of Doom. And it was in the Babylonian realm that Islam was molded into a poligious doctrine capable of seducing a billion souls.Â
Â Â Â Hitler’s next line provides a wonderful insight into the mindset of Muhammad as his demonic spirit welled up inside him, causing him to chafe at the Hebrew Scriptures.Â Mein Kampf:55Â “An inner voice now urged me on…the effect was like a spiritual vitriol [anger, wrath, fury, rage, ire]. I had to fight down the rage rising in me. The enemy’s wretched papers comprised a concentrated solution of lies.”Â
Â Â Â Hitler said of the Jewish inspired Socialist doctrine he would both emulate and hate:Â Mein Kampf:56Â “Everything was written with an iron-faced prophetic certainty. Contained in the literature was a doctrine of salvation for a new mankind. Yet they operated in the most base manner with brutal forces of calumny [slander and defamation].”Â The master of propaganda said,Â “They possess a virtuosity for lying that is outrageous!”Â Der fuhrer must have shared der prophet’s speechwriter.Â
Â Â Â While the populations of Austria and Germany were ten thousand times larger than Muhammad’s Mecca, der fuhrer despised his rulers as much as der prophet disdained his chiefs. The empowered held what these men coveted.Â Mein Kampf:20Â “I have become an enemy of the ruling dynasty which has so disastrously influenced the state. The imperials have betrayed the cause of the people for their own ignominious ends.”Â Mein Kampf’sÂ never-ending argument rivaled the Qur’an’s.Â Mein Kampf:21Â “The hypocrisy of the Habsburgs [Quraysh] fanned the flames of hatred, indignation and contempt.”Â Mein Kampf:42Â “The rats of political poisoning gnaw away at the masses.”Â
Â Â Â Hitler and Muhammad stole the preponderance of their “new” poligious doctrines from established sources. Hitler borrowed from Islam and then usurped the writings of Nietzsche and Marx (both funded, interestingly enough, by the Illuminatiâ€”a religotic founded to serve and worship Lucifer). He was dependent upon Muhammad for his intolerance and terror, Nietzsche for his philosophy, and Marx for his politics. Yet der fuhrer, like his mentor, wasn’t into sharing power or praise with anyoneâ€”especially a Jew. Muhammad plagiarized the style of Zyad and the stories of Moses. Then, in identical fashion, both demagogues turned on the sources of their inspiration. And, as a not-so-coincidental aside, Yahweh’s chosen people, the Jews, played a significant role in both men’s revelation and rage.Â
Â Â Â The National Socialist German Workers Party, better known as Nazis, cloaked themselves in Marxist jargon.Â Mein Kampf:51Â “When I was young, Marxism, Social Democracy, and Socialism were identical ideas to me. But here, too, the hand of Fate opened my eyes to this betrayal of the people. I learned about the Social Democratic Party from a spectator’s point of view without having the slightest insight into the meaning of their doctrine. But suddenly I came into contact with their view of life and realized that it was a pestilential whore masked in social virtue. I knew that I must rid the world of her.”Â Hitler’s Reich was more controlling than Lenin’s Russia. Labor, production, and all things economic were socialized, making his attack on Marxism as hollow as Muhammad’s swipes at paganism and Judaism. And in like fashion, Muhammad initially saw no difference between his pagan past, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Qur’an says,Â “We make no distinction between them.”Â But then, when they wouldn’t surrender, Muhammad became enraged. His final surahs proclaim:Â “Wipe the Infidels out to the last.”Â
Â Â Â Hitler blamed the Jewish Marx for having turned unions into his personal playground just as Muhammad attacked the Quraysh for hoarding the Ka’aba Inc.Â Mein Kampf:52Â “When I was told to join a union, I refused and was thrown out immediately…. At first I was annoyed. I drank my bottle of milk and ate my piece of bread pondering my miserable fate. It annoyed me extremely. The Marxists were exploiting workers, suppressing the proletariat. The institution raised slaves for the new slave drivers. Religion was a means of doping the people destined for exploitation. It dragged people down into the dirt and filth of the lowest depths.”Â Nazism, like the religion named submission, was designed to exploit and suppress slaves on behalf of their new master, doping people by way of religion into submission. As such both condemnations were hypocritical. The perpetrators were worse than those they were assailing. If I were to compress Islam into a single sentence, it would be: “Religion was a means of doping the people destined for exploitation.”Â
Â Â Â The tactics of the three religoticsâ€”Islam, Communism, and Nazismâ€”become indistinguishable:Â Mein Kampf:53Â “I argued till finally one day they [the Marxist union] applied the one means that wins the easiest victory over reason: terror and force. The leaders gave me the choice of either leaving the job or being thrown from the scaffold. I was alone and resistance seemed hopeless.”Â This is Islam in its purest form. Terror and force compel the hopeless to forfeit their money or life. Like Muhammad, Hitler would build his religotic on this formula.Â Qur’an 009.029Â “Fight those who do not submit to Islam until they pay the tribute tax in abject humility.”Â
Â Â Â While Hitler was trying to condemn Marxism with this next slogan, the line works equally well for the victims of Nazism or Islam.Â Mein Kampf:55“Aware of the terrible working of this poison, only a fool would condemn the victim.”Â This reminds me of the quote from Renan, the Islamic scholar, who wrote: “Muslims were the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him.”
Â Â Â The Qur’an, likeÂ Mein Kampf, acknowledges the source of its inspiration.Â Mein Kampf:55Â “My eyes were opened to the inner causes of Social Democratic successes. I understood the brutal demand to subscribe, to only read red newspapers, red books, and to exclusively attend red meetings. Marxism was a doctrine of intolerance.”Â This is no different than the Qur’an’s command for Muslims to shun contact with the Christians and Jews who had provided Muhammad’s scripture.Â
Â Â Â Having studied Islam, Hitler explained the strategy that propelled Muhammad’s rise.Â Mein Kampf:56Â “Like women, men will submit to a strong man. They are far more satisfied with a doctrine which tolerates no rival. With freedom, men feel at a loss as what to do with it. They feel deserted, spiritually terrorized. They will not recognize the outrageous curtailment of their human liberties, for in no way does the delusion of an intolerant doctrine dawn on them. They see force, brutality, and the aim of the doctrine to which they finally and always submit.”Â Once again, we see that Islam and Nazism are cut from the same cloth. Force and brutality are the tools of submission. Terror and the outrageous curtailment of human liberties lie at the heart of both doctrines. Neither tolerates a rival.Â Qur’an 008.039Â “Fight them until all religion is for Allah alone.”Â
Â Â Â The tyrants’ methods were identical, as were their means:Â Mein Kampf:56Â “If Social Democracy [Marxism] is confronted by a doctrine of greater truthfulness, carried out with the same brutality, then the latter will be victorious.”Â Truth is not relative, thus “greater truth” only means: “My way is better (for me) than yours.” This statement, which coincides entirely with Islam, means that the tyrant’s way will be imposed on any conflicting doctrine by brutal force. Since Nazism wasn’t “greater truth,” it failed, but it took 55 million souls down with it. And since Islam isn’t “greater truth” either, it will also fail, but the price will be higher still.Â Bukhari:V4B53N386Â “Our Prophet ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or pay us the Jizyah tax in submission. Our Prophet informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead a luxurious life, and whoever survives shall become your master.’”
Â Â Â Speaking of the Socialist doctrine he emulated, Hitler announced what he would do what Muhammad did:Â MeinÂ Kampf:56Â “The technical tools of Social Democracy became clear to me. I understood the infamous mental terror which this movement exercised on the population which could neither morally nor physically resist such attacks. There was a bombardment of lies and calumnies toward the adversary who seemed most dangerous [threatening to the doctrine], till finally the nerves of those who had been attacked gave out and they, for the sake of peace, bowed down to the hated enemy. But these fools will not find peace after all.”Â Unless I’m mistaken, this sounds similar:Â Ishaq:461Â “Muhammad besieged them for twenty-five nights. When the siege became too severe for them, Allah terrorized them. Then they were told to submit to the judgment of Allah’s Messenger.”Â Bukhari:V5B59N448Â “They surrendered to the Prophet. ‘I give my judgment that their men should be killed, their women and children should be taken as captives, and their properties distributed.’”Â Muhammad, Hitler, Lenin, and Mao, poligious prophets all, deployed the same tactics to suppress their people and terrorize the world.
Â Â Â Mein KampfÂ foreshadows the future that awaits those who tolerate evil, for those who seek peace with terrorists:Â Mein Kampf:57Â “The play begins again and is so often repeated the fear of the mad dog paralyzes suggestion. The Social Democrat [read Muslim or Nazi] knows from his own experience the value of strength. The doctrine praises every pacifist. Marxism is only afraid of strength.”Â
Â Â Â Hitler said that tyrannical regimes thrive on ignorance.Â Mein Kampf:57Â “Most of all it recommends those who are weaklings in mind and power. Social Democracy knows how to create the appearance that it is the only way in which peace can be maintained, yet relentlessly it conquers.”Â Yes, even today, those who promote peace with Islam simply facilitate their conquests.
Â Â Â Hitler, as we shall see, linked Judaism to Marxism. With that in mind consider these prophetic words:Â Mein Kampf:58Â “These [terror] tactics are based on an exact calculation of all human weaknesses. They will lead to success with mathematical certainty unless the other side learns to fight poison gas with poison gas.”Â
Â Â Â As with Muhammad and Islam, terror was the central ingredient in Hitler’s Nazi religotic:Â Mein Kampf:58Â “The importance of physical terror against the individual and the masses also became clear to me.”Â Muhammad agreed:Â Bukhari: V4B52N220Â “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror.’”
Â Â Â Der fuhrer emulated his mentor:Â Mein Kampf:58Â “Here, too, we find exact calculations of the psychological effect. Terror in the workplace, in the factory, in the assembly hall, and on occasion in the mass demonstration, will always be accompanied by success as long as it is not met by an equally great force of terror.”Â I find it stunning that America sent emissaries to work with this man throughout the 1930s. I find it stunning that Great Britain capitulated to his will. It’s as if they had never read his manifesto. It’s as if they were ignorant of his motives and means. But it’s understandable: it’s directly analogous to Americans negotiating with Saudis, Egyptians, Iranians, and the so-called Palestinians without having read the Qur’an or Hadith.Â
Â Â Â Seventy-five years ago America’s best and brightest ignored the words on these pages; in fact, they denied them, as did the nation’s media. And this allowed a demented, violent, and hateful poligious cancer to fester. Rather than expose and eliminate it when it was weak, we allowed it to garner money, arms, and men. Nazis used them to kill us. And while that’s inexcusable, there is something far more disturbing, immoral, and foreboding here. We are doing it all over again.
Â Â Â We are just fifty-eight pages intoÂ Mein Kampf, and yet we know what Hitler is going to do and how he is going to do it. You wouldn’t think that it would have been too much to ask our leaders to have read fifty-eight pages and thereby saved the lives of fifty-five million people. Yet they didn’t, and he lashed out as promised. And this is not just a lesson in comparative historyâ€”Nazism to Islamâ€”for our leaders haven’t cracked the covers of the terrorist manifesto that is motivating killers today. I can only hope and pray that this comparison between Hitler and Muhammad,Â Mein KampfÂ and the Qur’an, will awaken free peoples before terror succeeds once again.Â
Â Â Â Some may protest that Hitler was more ruthless, and thus a comparison is unfair. But one man’s comparative “success” was merely a function of time and place, not doctrinal depravity. With swords and spears rather than tanks and planes, Muhammad was forced to be considerably more deliberate and homespun in his application of terror. Working with freedom-loving and peaceful Arabs rather than disciplined and warlike Aryans, early Islam was a less efficient killer. Without the population density of Europe in the twentieth century, the first Muslim militants were less murderous, as well. But transfer a billion dollars a day to the Islamic cause, give them time to develop nuclear and biological weapons and time to indoctrinate millions of martyrs to use them, and see what happens in a world of six billion souls.Â
Â Â Â The Bible says a quarter of the earth’s population will die in the ensuing war, a third of the planet’s surface will be scorched, and pestilence will render even more uninhabitable. Knowing what you know now, do you want to bet against it, risk your freedom and your life on the off chance that Muslims will not act like Muhammad?Â
Â Â Â Der prophet identified Jews with plagues:Â Bukhari:V4B56N679Â “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Plague is a means of torture sent on the Israelis.’”Â Hitler spoke of the terror he wished to impose on Marxists (who like the Jews were both his inspiration and his rival): Â Mein Kampf:58Â “Then, of course, the Marxists will cry havoc; scornful of the state [for not protecting them]. With the resulting disorder they will reach their goal of finding some idiot official who in the stupid hope of gaining something for himself, a favor from the dreaded enemy, will help break the adversary of this dreaded plague.”Â Hitler is implying that confronted with a terrorist doctrine like Islam, a nation like America is likely to comfort the terrorists and attack those with the courage to thwart them. He’s right.
Â Â Â Just as Muhammad taught his militants to attack infidels, Hitler said:Â Mein Kampf:58Â “Only those who know the soul of a people, not from books but from life [his abused youth], can understand the impression such success [terrorism] makes on the sensibilities of adherents and adversaries. In the ranks of their adherents the victory gained is looked upon as the triumph of the righteousness of the cause. While the beaten adversary despairs entirely, viewing all further resistance futile.”Â As we have discovered in the Hadith and Qur’an, the terrorist raids perpetrated by militants against merchants, and by Muslims against Jews, had this very effect on both ally and adversary.Â Qur’an 033.022Â “When the faithful saw the retreating allied armies this enhanced their faith and obedience…Allah drove the infidels back in their fury so that their resistance was futile.”
Â Â Â Mein Kampf:59Â “The more I became acquainted with the methods of physical terror, the more I asked forgiveness from the hundreds of thousands who succumbed to it.”Â They say that confession is good for the soul. Of course you need to have one for it to work. Muhammad didn’t so he said:Â Qur’an 8:12Â “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”Â Qur’an 8:57Â “If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.”Â Then speaking of the abuse that gave rise to Islam and Nazism, der fuhrer proclaimed:Â Mein Kampf:59Â “I owe [my inspiration] to that period of suffering because I learned to distinguish between victims and seducers.”Â Like Muhammad, Hitler, having been a victim, became a seducer so that he might victimize.
Â Â Â Both tyrants personified evil. Yet in their twisted minds, it was their enemies who:Â Mein Kampf:60Â “sowed the seeds of hatred, creating the justification for their actions…. Fate gave me these lessons.”Â Mein Kampf:62Â “The battle against them has to be fought with weapons to have any hope of success…. The struggle for the abolition of evil will be decided in favor of the stronger force.”Â The prophet loved weapons too:Â Qur’an 8:59Â “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.”Â Both justified their actions by redefining good and evil. Fighting was good; pacifists were evil. Anything that served to satiate their cravings for power, sex, and money was good; anything that precluded them from taking these things was bad.
Â Â Â This next line explains how Muhammad enticed his mercenaries, building an economy based upon piracy and plunder. It’s why everyone in Islam’s path ultimately submitted.Â Mein Kampf:63Â “In politics, the application of economic means of pressure permits extortion so long as the doctrine is reckless and the people are stupid and sheepish.”Â Muhammad promoted similarly reckless odds by inferring that all non-Muslims were stupid.Â Qur’an 008.065Â “O Prophet, urge the Believers to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred. If a hundred, they will slaughter a thousand infidels: for these are a people devoid of understanding.”Â
Â Â Â Mein Kampf:64Â “So great was the fear [of terror] that people dreaded war. So the doctrine can ratchet up demands higher and higher. It’s a devilish attempt to weaken or even paralyze the victim’s holiest claims. Considering the limited thinking power of the masses, the success of this strategy is not surprising.”Â This is precisely what we have been reading about. The first Muslims used terror to paralyze everyone within their reach.Â Qur’an 059.002Â “It was Allah who drove the People from their homes and into exile. They refused to believe. You did not think that they would go away. And they imagined that their strongholds would protect them. But Allah came at them from where they did not suspect, and terrorized them. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson, men who have eyes. This is My warning.
Â Â Â Hitler said this of Communism, but it is equally true of Islam:Â Mein Kampf:64Â “They fear actually lifting people from the depths of their present cultural and social misery because it would wrench from them their base of power.”Â So long as the militancy of disgruntled men can be channeled at an external enemy, tyrants retain power. Claiming to liberate men, Nazism and Islam:Â Mein Kampf:65Â “profane liberty with these words, ‘If you don’t join with us, we will crack your skull!’”Â In the Hadith, we find:Â Ishaq:470Â “We attacked them fully armed, sharp swords in our hand, cutting through heads and skulls.”Â Ishaq:471Â “We were steadfast trusting in Him. We have a Prophet by whom we will conquer all men.”Â
Â Â Â Der fuhrer was as fixated on Marxism as the prophet was on Judaism.Â Mein Kampf:65Â “I had a longing to penetrate the nucleus of this doctrine, but the official literature was of little use, for it lies.”Â Muhammad falsely condemned the Jews for lying too.Â Ishaq:240Â “The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.”Â
Â Â Â Sounding like Muhammad and his never-ending argument, Hitler protested like a schoolyard bully:Â “I was disgusted by their pettifogging methods and writing. Words with unclear content or unintelligible meaning were piled up ingeniously and meaninglessly. It is a dung heap of literary Dadaism. Theoretical untruth and nonsense, combined with sad, foreboding, and depressing fear form a doctrine comprised of egoism and hatred. It could bring about the end of mankind. It is a doctrine of destruction.”Â This is an exacting description of the Qur’an.Â 002.059Â “The [Jewish] transgressors changed and perverted the word from that which had been spoken to them to a word distorted; so We sent a plague upon them from heaven, for their evil-doing.”Â Muhammad and Hitler epitomized what they protested.Â
Â Â Â One rant followed another:Â Mein Kampf:66Â “Understanding Jewry alone is the key to comprehending the real intention of Social Democracy. He who knows race will raise the veil of false conceptions, and out of the mist and fog of empty phrases, there rises the grinning, ugly face of Marxism.”Â Why do you suppose these men chose to annihilate Yahweh’s chosen people? Coincidence? Jews had neither army nor country. They represented a tiny fraction of one percent of the earth’s population. Yet one of these men ordered his followers to kill every Jew. The other nearly did.Â Ishaq:463Â “I pass judgment that their men shall be killed, their women and children made captives, and their property divided.”Â Bukhari:V5B59N362Â “So the Prophet killed the Qurayza men. He distributed their women, children and property among the Muslims.”
Â Â Â Hitler said:Â Mein Kampf:66Â “When I came upon the word ‘Jew’ I felt a slight dislike and could not ward off a disagreeable sensation which seized me whenever they were in my presence. Their external appearance had become human, but they had a strange religion.”Â Hitler would call them:“halfwits, nags, malicious, envious annoyances,”Â andÂ “dangerous disgusting liars”Â whoseÂ “smell makes me ill.”Â Mein Kampf:75Â “The physical uncleanliness of the chosen people was as repelling as their moral blemishes.”Â
Â Â Â Muhammad said Allah committedÂ “bestiality, turning Jews into apes and swine.”Â He said that the Jews wereÂ “deaf, dumb, and blind.”Â And referring to the People of the Book he said,Â “They are a people in whose hearts is a disease.”Â Hitler said,Â Mein Kampf:75Â “The little Jew, blinded by the sudden light, was like a maggot in a rotting corpse.”Â Mein Kampf:76Â “Jews are a spiritual pestilenceâ€”infected with a disease worse than the Black Plague. They are spiritual and moral poison, the carriers of the worst sort of germs, infecting the minds of the world.”Â Bukhari:V4B56N679Â “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Plague is a means of torturing the Israelis.”Â
Â Â Â Muhammad’s “Allah” and Hitler’s “Fate” hated Yahweh’s chosen. It’s as if they thought they could hurt him by hurting them.Â Mein Kampf:79Â “Jews were cursed by Fate. They were hit so hard by Fate they have no understanding…. Their boundless hate for themselves soiled their history and abused their heroes.”Â Â Â Â Ishaq:264Â “The Jews denied what they knew. They were obstinate. So Allah revealed, ‘People of the Book, believe in what we have sent down or We will efface your features, turning your face into your ass, cursing you.’”
Â Â Â Der fuhrer justified his racism by suggesting that the Jews controlled the world press and Marxism. Muhammad simply sent out assassins to murder Jewish poets.Â Mein Kampf:80Â “I traced the names of the authors of Marxist papers and they were all Jews. I became acquainted with their doctrine and used it as a weapon in the battle for my own internal conviction.”Â With every word, Hitler became more like Muhammad.Â Mein Kampf:81Â “It isn’t possible to free a Jew from his convictions. I naively tried to make clear to them the madness of their ideas. I talked until my tongue was weary but it only served to strengthen their determination. They refused to understand…. Their glibness of tongue and skill for lying caused me to hate them.”Â
Â Â Â The Qur’an also claimed that the Jews would never believe.Â Ishaq:248Â “Allah has sealed their hearts and their hearing, blinding them so that they will never find guidance. And that is because they have declared you a liar and they do not believe in what has come down from their Lord. For opposing you they will have an awful punishment.”Â
Â Â Â Islam and Nazism were devoted to dehumanizing Jews.Â Mein Kampf:82Â “They are seducers who condemned truth and denied the word. They are not to be pitied, but to be given their dueâ€”to smash the seducer and corrupter against the wall.”Â This is the central message of the Medina surahs.Ishaq:248Â “Allah increases their sickness. A tormented doom awaits the Jews. Allah said, ‘They are mischief makers. They are fools. The Jews deny the truth and contradict what the Apostle has brought. I will mock them and let them continue to wander blindly.’”Â
Â Â Â Mein KampfÂ and the Qur’an spew similar venom.Â Mein Kampf:82Â “Jews are victims of error, instigators of illness, led by devils incarnate, with the brains of a monster. They would destroy the world if not for the salvation of a fight with all the weapons at our disposal. They veil their thoughts and conceal their intentions.”Â Qur’an 2:64Â “But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers.Â So become apes, despised and hated. We made an example out of you.”Â Ishaq:240Â Â “The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.”Â Qur’an 59:14Â “The Jews are devoid of sense. There is a grievous punishment awaiting them. Satan tells them not to believe so they will end up in Hell.”Â Â
Â Â Â Muhammad changed his Qiblah from Jerusalem to Mecca, from pretending to be a Jewish prophet to being their most ardent enemy. Hitler said:Mein Kampf:83Â “This was the greatest change I was ever to experience inside me. I had turned into a fanatical anti-Semite…. Destiny itself gave me the answer. The Jewish doctrine of Marxism is chaos. If the Jew is allowed to conquer humanity, his crown will be man’s funeral wreath.”Â For der fuhrer and der prophet, the elimination of the Jewish race was inspired:Â Mein Kampf:80Â “Eternal Nature inexorably revenges the transgressors of her laws. I am acting on behalf of the Almighty Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord’s work.”Â This leaves us with a rather unpleasant choice. Either there are two “Lords” who despise Jews or the Nazi and Islamic god is the same spirit.
Â Â Â Hitler, like Muhammad, hated choice as much as he despised freedom:Â Mein Kampf:99Â “Democracy is a universal plague. It creates a monstrosity of filth and fire. Fate showed me how ridiculous a parliament is as an institution.”Â Mein Kampf:104Â “The invention of democracy is a crying shame…. A majority can never replace the Man.”Â Never forget: Nazism, like Islam, was created to serve one man.Â Mein Kampf:106Â “The one true leader, provided by Fate, is to be placed in that position.”Â Muhammad said on behalf of his god:Â 002.104Â “You of [the Islamic] Faith, say not (to the Prophet) words of ambiguous import like ‘Listen to us,’ but words of respect; and obey (him): To those who don’t submit there is a grievous punishment.”The core message of the Medina surahs is: submit and obey, fight and pay.
Â Â Â Muhammad and Hitler thought that they were superior to the people they controlled. The prophet called his people every derogatory word he knew. Hitler was slightly more refined.Â Mein Kampf:107“The mass of people are not sufficiently developed to arrive at a political opinion by themselves and thus are not suited to select the leader.”Â Mein Kampf:113Â “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a great man to be discovered in an election.”Â Mein Kampf:116Â “Democracy shuns sunlight. Only a Jew could praise such a dirty and false institution.”
Â Â Â Muhammad chose the grandiose titles of prophet and apostle. Hitler followed suit, suggesting that he was called to be the oracle or messenger of God.Â Mein Kampf:117Â “The word “fuhrer” (leader) has a very special connotation. Der Fuhrer is a man who gives expression to the divinity enshrined in his people. Der Fuhrer speaks as the Oracle or Messenger of his dreams. Der Fuhrer must have a feeling of certainty. He must not shrink from bloodshed or even war in pursuit of his goal. Der Fuhrer is the German Messiah whose kingdom is to last a thousands years. He is like Christ. He must allow Fate to dictate the course he is to pursue…. Any German who resists Der Fuhrer is a pariah, a blasphemer against Providence.”Muhammad wasn’t the only tyrant with a messiah complex.
Â Â Â Muhammad wasn’t the only dictator to found a religion.Â Mein Kampf:120Â “By using religious forces for political purposes, Der Fuhrer awakens a spirit most would not have believed possible.”Â Mein Kampf:123Â “But once it is in danger of being oppressed, it is justified in fighting with all available weapons…. For any man who is not willing to fight, righteous Providence has already decreed his doom. The world is not intended for the cowardly.”Â Good Nazis, and good Muslims, fight.Â Qur’an 002.191Â “Oppression is worse than killing.”Â Bukhari:V4B52N50Â “The Prophet said, ‘A single endeavor of fighting in Allah’s Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it.’”Â Qur’an 9:88Â “The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.”Â Qur’an 9:5Â “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”
Â Â Â Hitler, like someone else we know, possessed a delusional self image.Â Mein Kampf:134Â “Only the best and the most courageous characters are suited to act as leaders. If the fight for the new view of life [religotic] is not led by heroes then death-defying fighters will not be found.”Â Both men had a rather nasty habit of over-hyping themselves and their causes in hopes of attracting warriors.Â Mein Kampf:135Â “The mission of a successful movement is to gain leaders and fighters. It must embrace its destiny with force, defiance, and martyrdom. It must fight, not negotiate.”Â Qur’an 008.057Â “Inflict on them such a defeat as would be a lesson for others that they may be warned. If you apprehend treachery from a people with whom you have a treaty, retaliate by breaking it off.”
Â Â Â Continuing to connect fighting to religion, Hitler proclaimed:Â Mein Kampf:127Â “With religious conviction…the bearers of the new doctrine must declare themselves ready and willing to fight.”Â Mein Kampf:128Â “The will to fight using all instruments of power gains favor and draws the greatest possible advantage to the movement.”Â Mein Kampf:132Â “Greatness wins new fighters for the cause and they are rewarded with success.”Â Qur’an 008.065“O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight.”Â Qur’an 009.005Â “Slay the infidels wherever you find them. Take them captive and besiege them.”Â Qur’an 008.069Â “Know that the use of spoils is lawful and good.”
Â Â Â Suggestive and impassioned speech served both men. Their lives became a performance in which they played the staring role.Â Mein Kampf:136Â “The masses will always succumb to the force of the spoken word. They need volcanic eruptions of passion and spiritual sensations stirred by the cruel God of Misery and the fiery word.”Â Hitler’s words, like Muhammad’s before him, served as a confession. The “cruel God of Misery” was Lucifer. He seduced men with fiery-tongued accomplices.Â
Â Â Â Passions bubbled to the surface and men succumbed to their own desires.Â Mein Kampf:137Â “Only a storm of burning passion can turn people’s destinies. Only he who harbors passion in himself can arouse passion [cravings]. Passion will be given to him by the cruel God of Misery. He will choose him, and will give him the words that beat like a hammerâ€”words that will open the hearts of men. The passionate speaker has been chosen by Heaven as a prophet to do his will.”Â Hitler saw himself as a “prophet chosen by the cruel God of Misery,” one called to recite the Heavenly revelations of a “new view of life,” one called to incite violent passions so that men would fight for his cause. As such, he was the very reincarnation of Muhammad.Â Ishaqq:233Â “Allah’s Apostle: the Lord of the Muslims, Leader of the Allah Fearing, Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds, the Peerless and Unequalled.”Â Qur’an 4:65Â “They can have no Faith, until they make you (Muhammad) judge in all disputes, and find in their souls no resistance against Your decisions, accepting them with complete submission.”
Â Â Â Hitler could have saved himself a lot of trouble. Had he dusted off the Qur’an’s War surahs, he could have dispensed withÂ Mein Kampf. Replace Arabs with Aryans, Mecca with Munich, and prophet with fuhrer, and the rest remains the same. The “cruel God of Misery” is a more fitting title for Allah’s tormented spirit, anyway. Fear, submission, and obedience take their rightful place in both men’s quest to gratify their flesh. The Qur’an andMein KampfÂ were inspired by the same spirit and for the same purpose. They are equally false, intolerant, racist, hateful, and violent. While the original disciples of both men conquered much of the world, one poligious doctrine lives on. It continues to inflame terrorists everywhere.
Â Â Â As the beneficiary of the largest transfer of wealth in historyâ€”a billion dollars a dayâ€”Islam is on the verge of acquiring the weapons of mass destruction it needs to fulfill its destiny. Hitler,Â Mein Kampf, and Nazism gave us a taste of what awaits us. Unless we come to see Muhammad, the Qur’an, and Islam in the same light and eliminate their influence, the world will erupt in a war more hellish than we can imagine.
