Islam Religion of Peace


If you believe that, you are dead wrong.
You know what ‘they’ say, every picture tells a story…
Cue slide show.

Islamophobia be damned!
Do you notice the recurring theme?
How about common denominators?
Many of the demonstrations displayed took place on Western soil.

I rest my case.

    Litsen up, whoever made this doesn’t know half of it. These terrorists are going against all of the teachings that Islam teaches. You have to keep an open mind when it comes to religion. There can be many perspectives one has when it comes to religion, a misunderstanding of something a religion teaches can cause problems between people with different perspectives. The people you see in the slide show have misunderstood what it says in the Holy Qur’an and what Islam teaches. Because of these people, now when you hear the word Islam, instead of thinking religion of peace, you think religion of war, terrorism, chaos and so on, when in fact Islam is truly a religion of peace, and you would agree if you learned the true meanings of what is said in the Holy Qur’an and what is taught in Islam. Next time you accuse a religion of being something remember that there may be a whole different side to the story.

    You listen up rude dude.

    ”Islam means Peace” is part of the Jihad.

    Peace: Submission to Allah is the only peace recognized in Islam. Anything else is worthy of justified retaliation. –”When Muslims say peace, they mean non-Muslims should be subdued and humiliated to the extent that they have no strength to rebel. Peace, according to Islam, is therefore achieved through subjugation” (Ali Sina). Many Islamic flags show weapons. See Dar-al Islam and Dar-al Harb.

    Dar-al-Islam (or Dar’ul Islam -arab. House of Peace):
    […]Whenever Muslims talk about Islam as peaceful, they really mean the entire world ruled by Allah, nothing less. Places or lands of infidels aren’t so pacified until they are ruled solely by the Sharia.

    Link

    Jihad is not always carried in a violent manner. Soft jihad or legal jihad is as much a part of it as the violence.

    Some of us are not so blind.

    Okay….so I’m sorry if I sounded rude, it was just that I was shocked that someone accused a religion of being violent. Just think about it…if a normal person thinks that violence is wrong how could anyone ever think that a prophet taught his followers to act violently? (When I say a prophet I’m referring to Hadhrat Muhammad (saw) who brought the religion of Islam.) It would take me a long time to explain everything about Jihad and the true Islam so you could speak with true knowledge and not just an opinion and the lies you see. If you want to know the truth about Islam go to any true AHMADI Muslim who has enough knowledge and hopefully he/she will be able to shed some light on this matter and answer your questions to the fullest of their ability. Or, watch MTA (Muslim Television Ahmadiyya)-there are different programs on that channel which talk about the religion of Islam, constantly tune in to that channel and you will find true knowledge. Again, I apologize for being rude and I know that this is a bit off topic but I was wondering what your religion is or if you are an atheist and well how old you are? If that’s too personal then it doesn’t matter. Oh and in case anyone is wondering who I’m talking to it would be Velvet Hammer. Thanks for your time.

    Come on Akira, if you think that is what Islam is about, then don’t consider it a religion, because no religion would teach someone that they should be violent to serve God. Islam is a religion of peace-if you don’t believe me well fine, I have tried telling you the truth, tried to change your minds and tried to make you think positive, but if you won’t even think and consider what I have to say-you’re being stubborn and I’m not going to waste my time anymore. I don’t want to hear you insult my religion, I don’t want to get hurt every time I go on the internet and see people making fun of my religion. So bye.

And if not I hope that in the afterlife you’ll get some sense-oh and by the way I just want to tell you this-don’t ask why or what the point is, I just want to tellyou…..I’m 13 years old and I love the religion of Islam!

    First of all, I don’t even know the definition of buggered-I searched for the definition but I couldn’t find a satisfying answer. That other website you posted on your comment, I agree is sickening and totally wrong-no one in their right mind could think otherwise-but I don’t believe it has anything to do with Islam, maybe that person just came from the religion of Islam and is a complete maniac-because no one following the true-and notice how I have been trying to emphasize true-religion of Islam, could even think of doing that. Also, l I have never been abused in my entire life, so don’t be sympathetic when there’s nothing to be sympathetic about. Not all Christians follow their religion, and you don’t see me saying that Christianity is messed up because I judge it according to those people. So even if there are some people in Islam that don’t follow their religion-don’t judge the whole religion according to those people. And I know that there is a lot of stuff out there explaining Islam and people of that religion explaining it-but not all of it is true. One extremely reliable source that I know of, and whom you may know of as well, is our beloved Khalifa (Successor) Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (ra). But it isn’t like you can just go and talk to him, so go on alislam.org and search it thoroughly-you may find all the true answers your looking for.

    Tex,

    I used “bugger” rather than sexual intercourse, since the former seems to be more of an Arab habit than is the latter.

    Re: “maybe that person just came from the religion of Islam and is a complete maniac”

    “That person” is Mohammad, your alleged Prophet. You are saying that The Pedophile Moham is “a complete maniac” just ’cause he screwed a 9-year-old girl? Not that I disagree with you, but it’s a bit surprising to hear a Muslim acknowledge what a sick twist Moham was. I guess there’s hope for you.

    If you actually read that linked article carefully, then you should have noticed that it is all based on the most respectable and accepted Hadith and the History of Bukhari etc.

    Re: “Not all Christians follow their religion.”

    Right, of course. These are “bad” Christians, because they fail to live up to the highest ideals.

    Do you get it?

    A Christian who truly follows the teachings of Jesus Christ is a good person.

    One who does not, will be more or less a bad human being.

    On the other hand, a good Muslim — one who follows the standards set by The Pedophile Moham — will be a bad human being being.

    And a “bad” Muslim — such as, I guess, yourself — will probably be a good human being.

    Allow me to illustrate.

    Q: Are you a Muslim?

    A: I guess you still are.

    Q: Do you want to kill anyone who abandons this deviant cult, or cut off the arms or legs or heads of non-Muslims who refuse to submit to Islam, or want to rape your war-booty slaves?

    A: I guess not, unless you’re in a bad mood.

    Therefore, you see, you are not following the example of The Pedo Moham, and are therfore a “bad” Muslim, and a good human being, because two negatives make a positive.

    I hope this has clarified things for you.

    God bless you.

    Texas, re: “no prophet would ever do that- … Get your facts straight before telling anyone anything like that.”

    Listen, why don’t you follow your own advice and get YOUR facts straight. It is a well-established fact, based on Muslim scriptures that Mohammad was 49 years old when he married Aiasha, who was 6. And them — according to her very own testimony, she was 9 years old and he was 52 when he penetrated her little Muslim vagina with the mighty man-root of Allah.

    Go and find it out for yourself.

    In fact, in that very article I provided the citations from Muslim scriptures. Go there your self and find out if I have quoted accurately:

    http://brianakira.wordpress.com/2008/02/02/52-year-old-man-fucked-9-year-old-girl/

    First of all you will deny it, and then you will makes excuses for that pedophile scumbag, and then you will either:

    – Just accept it and remain a Muslim because you are too weak to face reality, bu you will hate yourself for being so weak and for following a “prophet” tht you know was filth, or

    – Actually defend “The Prophet” and say that it was good that he screwed the little girl, that he was doing her a favor and that he was just doing the will of Allah when he got a hard-on, and you will start screaming “ALLAHU AKHBAR ALLAHU AKHBAR PERDITION AND SUFFERING TO THE INFIDEL SLAY THE UNBELIEVER ALLAHU AKHBAR!” and you will be some sort of Jihadi nutcase, or

    (c) Face facts and grow up and all the other evil or weak Muslims will hate you for becoming a decent and brave human being.

    Good luck, and God (the real one) bless you.

    1. THE HADITH OF SAHIH BUKHARI

    Bukhari’s Hadith (English translation by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, Islamic University, Medina) is second to the Quran in terms of importance. The central figure to approve and sign the translation is Dr. Amin Al-Masri, Ph.D. Cambridge University, Advisor and Head of the Sharia Dept., The College of Sharia and Islamic Studies, Mecca.

    Bukhari vol. 7, #65:

    “Narrated Aisha that the prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: “I have been informed that Aisha remained with the prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death).””

    Bukhari vol. 7, #88:

    “Narrated Urwa: “The prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).””

    Bukhari vol. 5, #234:

    “Narrated Aisha: The prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six. We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Harith Kharzraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became all right, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s messenger came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.”

    2. THE HADITH OF SAHIH MUSLIM

    Sahih Muslim, vol. 2, no. 3309: “Aisha reported: Allah’s Messenger married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine….”

    3. THE HADITH OF THE SUNAN OF ABU DAWUD

    Abu Dawud’s Hadith is the third most respected Hadith in Islam.

    Abu Dawud, Vol. 2, #2116:

    “Aisha said, “The Apostle of Allah married me when I was seven years old.” (The narrator Sulaiman said: “Or six years.”). “He had intercourse with me when I was 9 years old.”

    4. THE HISTORY OF TABARI

    Vol. 7, p. 7: “….my marriage (to Muhammad) was consummated when I was nine…..”

    Vol. 9, p. 131: “Then the men and women got up and left. The Messenger of God consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old. Neither a camel nor a sheep was slaughtered on behalf of me”……(The Prophet) married her three years before the Emigration, when she was seven years old and consummated the marriage when she was nine years old, after he had emigrated to Medina in Shawwal. She was eighteen years old when he died.”

    5. THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ISLAM

    The Islamic Encyclopedia [pub. E.J. Brill], along with other Islamic texts, all acknowledge Aisha’s age of Mohammedan penetration as being 9:

    “Some time after the death of Khadija, Khawla suggested to Muhammad that he should marry either Aisha, the 6 year old daughter of his chief follower, or Sawda Zama, a widow of about 30, who had gone as a Muslim to Abyssinia and whose husband had died there. Muhammad is said to have asked her to arrange for him to marry both. It had already been agreed that Aisha should marry Djubayr Mutim, whose father, though still pagan, was friendly to the Muslims. By common consent, however, this agreement was set aside, and Muhammad was betrothed to Aisha…. The marriage was not consummated until some months after the Hidjra, (in April 623, 624). Aisha went to live in an apartment in Muhammad’s house, later the mosque of Median. She cannot have been more than ten years old at the time and took her toys to her new home.”

    From “Women in Islam,” by Said Abjullah Seif-Al-Hatimy (Islamic Publications, Lahore Pakistan): “…(Aisha) She was the youngest of his wives. . It is said that she was nine years of age when he married her.”

    * * * * *

    N.B. DEFINITION OF THE WORD TRANSLATED AS “CONSUMMATE”

    In Sahih Bukhari, vol. 7, #64, the root word used is dakhala. According to The Hans-Wehr Arabic-English Dictionary, p. 273, dakhala means, “to enter, to pierce, to penetrate, to consummate the marriage, cohabit, sleep with a woman.”

    Dear Texas,

    Obviously I don’t believe or accept that Moham was a prophet [perhas a prophet of Satan …] or in any way doing anything holy at all. Therefore I have no problem describing him as a filthy human being — which, considering the FACTS that he robbed, maimed, tortured, raped and killed, seems a reasonable adjective.

    I see you either just stuck your head in the sand, like an Ostrich, and completely ignored all of the Muslim scriptures I cited that prove beyond a doubt that Moham was a pedophile. Either that, or you don’t care, If that’s the case — if you k=now know very well what kind of filth Moham was, and still chose to follow this deviant and lowlife — then you can no longer say that you were uninformed, or plead ignorance, and you, unfortunately, are now in the same league as the Pedophile Mohammad.

    That’s quite sad.

    Texas-Ostrich,

    I understand that as a follower of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, you reject the violent aspects of Jihad, but you must be aware that your sect is illegal and/or suppressed in much of the Muslim world.

    In fact Amadiyya is not orthodox Islam. It is heteredox and syncretic. In trying to appease everyone Mirza Ghulam Ahmad offended everyone.

    Just last month many Ahmadityya were attacked in Indonesia, for daring to teach that Islam is peaceful. The real Muslims found that very offensive, and set about proving that Islam is not at all peaceful when it comes to dealing with “infidels” such as yourself and your co-religionists.

    By claiming that Islam is non-violent, or is now non-violent, Ahmed ofended all orthodox Muslim teachings, and insulted Mohammad [“the prophet”], since Ahmadiyya teachings are non-Koranic, and are contrary to the Sunnah.

    Likewise, his attempts to conform Christ to Islam are offensive to Christian teachings — first of all by dragging Jesus down into the Mohammadan swamp, and also by contradicting the gospels [e.g. claiming that Jesus Christ died a natural death and was neither crucified nor resurrected].

    Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s movement has some similarities to Bahai, Sufiism, Dervishism, etc — all attempts to break away from Muslim ideological tyranny by syncretic attempts to create “One Big All-Inclusive Path” [TM]

    In some respects I think that movements like Ahmadiyya are more dangerous that al-Qaeda or the Ayatollah’s Islamic Republicanism.

    Both al-Qaeda and the Ayatollahs are correct in their understanding of Islam, but differ in their attitudes toward the nature and role of the ummah etc.

    But groups such as yours serve the useful function of providing a civilized cover for the real Muslims [i.e. the Muslims who want to subjugate or kill the non-Muslim].

    I hope one day you manage to completely break free from this evil grip of Mohammad.

    – Akira

    P.S. I understand according to Ahmadiyya teachings, Aisha was 15 when she felt the penetrating force of Mohammad. However this is just wishful hostorical revisionism, and is contrary to all of the scriptural citations i proveded above.

    From Ahmadiyya texts:

    “It will be recalled that the ceremony of marriage between the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, and Aisha, younger daughter of Abu Bakr, had been performed in Mecca approximately three years before the Migration to Medina. The wedding took place two years after the Migration, when Aisha’s age had approximated to fifteen years. Some historians have fallen into error with regard to her age at the time of the wedding. Thorough research has, however, established that at the time of the ceremony of marriage in Mecca, Aisha was between ten and eleven years of age, and that the wedding took place in Medina between four to five years after the ceremony of marriage. This puts beyond doubt that, at the time of the wedding, Aisha’s age was at least fifteen years.”

    Therefore, your sect teaches that the following are all wrong:

    The Gospel of Matthew
    The Gospel of Mark
    The Gospel of Luke
    The Gospel of John
    The Acts of the Apostles
    The Epistles of St Paul, etc
    The Book of Revelations
    The Hadith of Bukhari
    The Hadith of Sahih Muslim
    The Hadith of the Sunan of Abu Dawud
    The History of Tabari

    They’re all wrong?
    And the Koran is wrong?
    And Jewish scriptures are wrong?

    Interesting theology you have…

    Texan Ostrich,

    If you speak Arabic, click “play” here:

    http://www.islamexplained.com/DaringQuestionEpisode82/tabid/1117/Default.aspx

    Translation:

    Life TV’s “Daring Question,” hosted by Rashid and Ahmed, recently ran a show dedicated to examining “Islam and the Arts.” Rashid initiated the program by asking a simple and straightforward question: Would there ever have been a Bach or Beethoven or Mozart if they were born Muslim and raised in Muslim countries?

    As typical with the show, Rashid asked the Arabic viewers the central question: “Is Islam against the Arts?” Viewers interested in responding call in and press one digit for yes, another for no. (Rashid went on to say that those interested in learning more about Christianity or simply looking for counseling can press digit X. He then added, somewhat whimsically, that those interested in calling to tell us to “burn in hell” can press digit, “May God forgive you!”)

    The show began by depicting various video clips of prominent sheikhs and ulema, including Muhammad Hassan, Muhammad Zughbi and Hussein Ya’qub all condemning music and song from an Islamic paradigm. Ya’qub concluded his diatribe against song by saying “If the whole world approves of something, but Islam condemns it, that settles it. Are music and song forbidden? Yes they are—according to both the book [Koran] and Sunna. The matter is settled.”

    Rashid’s colleague Ahmed next provided some of the Islamic texts that forbid music. He quoted from Ibn Taymiyya, who, in his Fatwas, asserts that all four madhhabs (schools of jurisprudence) forbid song and music—except during weddings and in the jihad (an odd dichotomy to say the least, and one recently alluded to by Hamas). He further quoted a hadith of the caliph Omar reportedly plugging his ears with his fingers whenever he heard a pipe being played, saying that that’s what Muhammad used to do, and thus eschewing music is “sunna.”

    As a former Muslim, Ahmed discussed how he used to buy music tapes in the past, only to grow pious and throw them away, and then “as the dog returns to his vomit,” go buy more tapes. He explained how difficult it was for him as a Muslim, since he was naturally drawn to music, but simultaneously felt that he was sinning.

    The hosts further stressed that the reprobate status of music within Islam has nothing to do with whether the music and lyrics are “good” (peaceful, glorifying of God) or not. They are evil in principle. Rashid quoted Bach saying that one of the most sublime aspects of music is to worship God: “So why does Allah forbid it?”

    They went on to indicate that the Bible—both Old and New Testaments—is supportive of song and music. They offered anecdotes such as David singing and dancing for “joy in the Lord,” and offered textual evidence such as Psalms 33 and 150.

    Ahmed indicated that when he converted to Christianity and began visiting various churches, his instincts were appalled at the free use of music in churches—drums and guitars even! He was very uncomfortable, and even sternly asked his Christian friends how they can worship in such a setting. During these early church visits, all that came to his mind were certain hadiths of Muhammad condemning musical pipes, saying they are instruments of Satan, as well as a Sahih Bukhari hadith asserting that Allah’s angels cannot come near those who have dogs or bells around them.

    Here, Rashid freely, and somewhat sheepishly, admitted that during his life as a Muslim, he was very much fixated on this question of angels and bells: whenever he wanted to sin, he used to wonder if he could just ring a bell, thereby dispersing the angels who would not see and record his transgressions. He used to wonder if he could perpetually defy the Angel of Death by wearing a bell around his neck. Later in life, with the ubiquity of the cell phone, he began wondering if angels were fleeing in panic all over the globe; it was then that his doubts about Islam became severe.

    Ahmed added an interesting reminder: for all the condemnation bells receive in Islamic tradition, Muhammad himself used to say that Gabriel’s “visitations” to him were preceded by the sounds of loud bells. If angels fear bells, and Gabriel was supposed to be an angel, how is it that his visitations were announced by, of all things, bells—Satan’s instruments?

    Next Ahmed and Rashid briefly moved to the concept of pictorial art, which even most non-Muslims are aware is forbidden. Again, they depicted several videos of prominent ulema discussing pictures. Muhammad Hassan said that hanging a simple portrait of anything live, say, a beloved family member, is tantamount to shirk (polytheism, idolatry), and is seen in Islam as a form of worship, according to both Bukhari and Muslim (al-Sahihin, the “two authentic”). Hassan said angels cannot enter homes containing pictures. The sheikh then added quite dryly, “And don’t tell me how we are living in the modern era, that it shouldn’t matter, etc.—repent and istaslam (resign yourself).

    Here Rashid expressed his sympathy for angels: “I pity them, truly; anything makes them flee.” He then asked the (predominantly Muslim) viewers: “If the two angels that accompany us to record our deeds are always fleeing, does my entering a concert hall full of portraits mean that I can sin with impunity?”

    Thus all pictures—minus mandatory ones, such as licenses, passports—are forbidden, even simple vacationing pictures. The hosts said that other ulema allow certain pictures, provided these are intentionally situated ignobly, such as on the floor (perhaps Saddam’s famous portrait of Bush on the floor was meant to be both offensive but also in keeping with Islam?).

    Near the close of the show, viewers called in; some tried to protest. The hosts, however, kept asking them to explain the jurists’ decrees regarding Islam and the arts, as well as the hadiths mentioned throughout the program. They were unable to respond, opting instead to make much noise, accusing Rashid and Ahmed of “distorting,” to which Rashid burst out with, “Due to the inherent problems of Islam, every Muslim today wants to tailor-make their own Islam, prohibiting and permitting only those things they agree to!”

    At the close of the show, the polls of the original question—“Is Islam against the Arts?”—were revealed: 84% said yes, 16% no.

    A long time ago the religion of Islam was formed, by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw)-but then people started acting against the teachings of Islam. The Holy Prophet received revelations from God, and put them all together in a book we call the Holy Qur’an. Successors of the Holy Prophet came to preach the religion of Islam truthfully and most Muslims did not believe them. They started misinterpreting the Holy Quran’s teachings. You have to look for the deep meanings to understand The Holy Qur’an correctly-those Muslims didn’t. So they wrongfully fought in the name of Islam. That group of Muslims divided into their own sects and wrongfully preached Islam. They fought, they killed and they are who you see in the slide show. Then there’s us, the Ahmadies, we believed the successors who came to remind us of the real Islam, we interpreted the Qur’an correctly, we didn’t take it as literally as the others. We were taught to respect, love and create peace-our motto explains who we are: “Love for All Hatred for None.” All of the other Muslims hated us and decided we were not Muslims. When in fact, they are the misguided souls. So the next time you think about Islam, think about us, the Ahmadies, not the other Muslims who put the name of Islam in shame and made our Holy Prophet look like the opposite of who he was. Sure he married Aisha when she was a teenager, but that was just tradition, it was how they did it back then, I don’t even like the fact people got married so young, but that’s just how things were. Now it’s different, for the most part. I know this whole thing sounds choppy..sorry.

    Texan Ostrich,

    Apart from your distortion of the Aisha rape [she was 6 at marriage, 9 when she got screwed, and Moham was 49 then 52], you just confirmed everything I just wrote:

    – Ahmadiyyas such as yourself are peaceful.

    – Therefore you are not Muslims.

    You just twist the Koran — a vile and hatefilled document — to make it peaceful and decent in your mind.

    Tex, God gave you a mind for a reason. Use it.

    You still don’t get it. First off, let me clarify that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) did not rape anyone. He is a real and pure Prophet. How can you say we are not Muslims, we are Muslims, and not just any Muslims, but the best and truest. The Holy Qur’an is not an evil book, it is like the Bible, they have teachings from God written in them. No teaching of God’s can be evil. It is the people who misinterpret them, making them seem evil, when in fact that is impossible for it to be. I am a Muslim, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) is my pure prophet and the Holy Qur’an is my Holy Book-just as the Holy Bible is yours. My religion is so peaceful that we are taught to respect each religion and believe in all the prophets. Something you aren’t doing. You aren’t accepting the fact that Islam, our Holy Prophet and the Holy Qur’an are all peaceful. I just hope you’ll come to learn that. I’m not asking you to convert to Islam, all I’m asking of you is to accept that Islam is a peaceful religion.

    I know what you mean. It’s so easy to misinterpret passages like:

    “I shall cast terror into the hearts of those who are bent on denying Islam; strike, then, their necks, O believers, and strike off every one of their finger-tips!”

    Re: “all I’m asking of you is to accept that Islam is a peaceful religion.”

    Evidence? Proof? Ot just coz your fragile psyche is invested in this myth of a peaceful Islam?

    Re: “My religion is so peaceful that we are taught to respect each religion and believe in all the prophets.”

    Interesting. And that’s why you’re not a Muslim, right?

    I understand why you don’t believe me yet and if I were you I would have asked for proof too, but I don’t have the experience or knowledge to prove to you that Islam is a peaceful religion, but I know that there is proof. I’m too young to be able to explain what that verse from the Holy Qur’an means either, but there is a reasonable explanation. And when I know I’ll tell you, and even though that may not be soon, I’ll still tell you.

    Eyes have been opened.

    Faith Freedom International is a grassroots worldwide movement of ex-Muslims and all those who are concerned about the rise of the Islamic threat.

    Faith Freedom International is a grassroots movement of those who asked prohibited questions and on that account lost their faith. We came to see that Islam is a hoax, an imperialistic ideology, disguised as religion, invented by a narcissist for his own personal gains. We found out that Muhammad was a conman, a ventriloquist who projected his own words into his imaginary dummy deity to fool the gullible. With a promise of a carnal and orgiastic paradise (just for men) and threat of hell he goaded his foolhardy followers to raid and slay innocent people under pretext that they were infidels. He and his merry band of terrorists looted villages and cities, raped the women, and enslaved all who were not killed outright. To this day, Muslim jihadis are following the footsteps of their prophet who bragged, “I have been made victorious with terror” . No other cause is responsible for more deaths than Islam. Our goal is to expose this religion of terror and warn of its danger. We also want to help Muslims see the absurdity of it, end their “us” vs. “them” ethos and embrace the human race in amity. No one is their enemy; it is they who are the enemy to everyone else. We strive for the unity of mankind through the elimination of Islam, the most insidious doctrine of hate. Humanity is one. Let not charlatans like Hitler and Muhammad divide us with their big lies.

    The following was written by a member of Faith Freedom International
    Islam 101: A Lexicon For Dummies A-Z
    Regarding “peace”

    Peace: Submission to Allah is the only peace recognized in Islam. Anything else is worthy of justified retaliation. –”When Muslims say peace, they mean non-Muslims should be subdued and humiliated to the extent that they have no strength to rebel. Peace, according to Islam, is therefore achieved through subjugation” (Ali Sina). Many Islamic flags show weapons. See Dar-al Islam and Dar-al Harb.

    How many times do I have to say this!? IT IS NOT ISLAM THAT IS EVIL! IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY ARE ACTING UPON THE ISLAMIC TEACHINGS, WHILE THEY ARE NOT REALLY DOING SO, WHO ARE EVIL. It is those Muslims who make you think that Islam’s translation is terrorism, those Muslims are not acting upon what Islam and the Holy Prophet have taught them. They don’t understand or interpret the teachings of Islam properly, they use violence instead of peace-and that is absolutley the opposite of what our religion teaches the. Now I know you are probably going to bring up some verses from the Holy Quran and say, “Explain what’s so peaceful about this?” Well, I know that there is a reasonable explanation for each of the verses. But I don’t know what the explanation is-why? Because I haven’t been taught, I haven’t lived very long yet, so I don’t have enough knowledge to give you a proper explanation. But remember-it’s not Islam that is evil, but the people who practice it wrong.

  29. November 3, 2008 7:25 pm

    Texas – you can keep up the ‘religion of peace” nonsense ’til you are blue in the face, it won’t matter. The simple fact is that you are mistaken.

    Each of us here has spent probably more time analyzing the Islamic “scriptures” than you have. The conclusion is inescapable if you are paying any attention at all.

    Everyone did it wrong, including the Companions and Mohammed himself, according to your Ahmadiyya doctrines. I urge you to get a copy of Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul-Allah and read about the real accepted history of your “prophet” and his “rightly guided” caliph successors. The violence and sexual degradation was there at the beginning – it’s not a new concept invented by a few misunderstanders. I also urge you to listen at http://the-koran.blogspot.com – a native Arab speaker explains it all in plain English. One more while I’m at it – http://islam-watch.org – a site run by former Muslimum who have discovered the truth of the “religion”.

    Open your eyes while you are still young.

    Good luck to you.

    Texan Ostrich [just kidding – don’t go all Jihad about the nickname, okay?],

    Further to Godegroi’s comment, I’d also recommend you watch Walid Shoebat’s videos and google his name for his bio and writings etc.

    That’s a very brave man, who has a great big Jihadi target on his back/head/neck 24-7 365.

    http://www.metacafe.com/watch/298476/walid_shoebat_on_fox_news_oreilly_factor/

    Also, are you aware that the word “radical” is derived from “radic” which means “root”?

    Therefore “radical Muslims” = Muslims who return to the roots of Islam, as Moham intended it to be.

    And people like you are very useful as cover for these Real Muslims. In Muslim countries they kill and persecute Amadiyyas, but in the west the say “look, these people are proof that Islam is peaceful and tolerant!”

    Tex-Os,

    From “Islam Caused Islamic World’s Decline”

    “We see Ahmadiyya Muslims, many Sufi Muslims, and Bahai Muslims all believing they are “Muslims” when they have deviated so far from the religion Muhammad preached and practiced that Muhammad would hardly consider them Muslims. Muhammad once ordered a mosque, whose members were practicing a heretical form of Islam, burned and his followers burned it to the ground with the heretical Muslims inside thereby establishing in Islamic doctrine that schisms were not only not to be tolerated, but should be violently suppressed.”

    Mohamed Ibn Guadi, Islamologist at Strasbourg University, researcher in Semitic Philology, Director of the Islamology Program at the French Center of Middle East Studies (AFEMO):

    “Osama Bin Laden is a good Muslim. … Radical Islam is not an ex nihilo creation. The so-called “radical Muslims” draw their sources in 14 centuries of Islamic history as well as hadiths and Muhammad the Prophet’s life that must be an example for Muslims. The Jihad is theologically correct.”

    The Ayatollah Khomeini, Marja al-Taqlid:

    “The Quran says; kill, imprison! Why are you only clinging to the part that talks about mercy? Mercy is against God. The prophet had a sword to kill people. We need a Khalifa who would chop hands, cut throat, stone people. In the same way that the messenger of God used to chop hands, cut throats, and stone people.”

    Tex,

    Never mind — for now — Muslim hatred and violence?

    How about what the Koran teaches about plain tolerance?

    Do you, or would you, have Christian or Jewish friends?

    If you answered “yes”, then you are not a Muslim.

    Check out the following passage, see it in context, read it in Arabic or whatever is your mother tongue. You will see the meaning is clear as day, and undeniable:

    Koran 5:51:

    “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends.”

    Our religion is complicated-why? Because, like a lot of religions there are many different sects, so what makes it different from other religions? There is a big difference between Ahmadies and the other Muslims, they interpreted the Holy Qur’an-as you are doing- incorrectly, us Ahmadies on the other hand, interpreted correctly. We went for peace -they went for extremism. There’s one thing I haven’t mentioned that maybe you’ve already considered. Think about the time, in which Jihad was introduced, or when the Holy Qur’an was revealed. It was a long time ago, where many things, that are not allowed now were allowed then. Ahmadies understand that, and do not act upon Jihad so violently, like other Muslims. Don’t think we are some crazy people trying to twist the Quranic verses into peaceful verses, we’re just human interpreting the Holy Quran the way it’s supposed to be interpreted. Sorry-this comment may be hard to follow….

    Brainwashed.

    Sad.

    You started out with, “You have to keep an open mind,” but you’re mind is as closed as Bin Laden’s.

    You wrote, “No religion would teach someone that they should be violent to serve God,” and now you just wrote that “early Islam” taught Muslims to be violent for Allah, but it was okay then.

    You wrote about how disgusting Mohammad was, when you didn’t realize it was Moham being discussed. Now you know it was him who fucked the little girl, but you just make excuses for him.

    You’re a sad case, and it seems you’ll just grow up to make excuses for all the filthy Muslims in the world, until one day they take over and cut your head off for being an “infidel”. Even then you’ll be pathetically arguin, “Oh Brothers, you don’t know the real Islam. Grrsggyyttgjggurrggle”

    Pathetic.

    Comment no. 35 is the Ayatollah Khomeini, the chief Persian Imam, who spent his entire life studying the Koran and Hadith and teaching it. Ad he’s correctly characterizing the Koran, which he read and you obviously haven’t.

    I haven’t explained my story properly to you, and I thought the story about that Muslim who happened to be my prophet was true…but when you said it was my prophet I knew it couldn’t be. And if someone were about to chop my head…I would probably just be pissed off because it is those people who have made you think the way you do about Islam…..and then I would cry because I’d figure out I’m about to die. I’ll pray that one day, someone, an Ahmadi, or even another Christian who understands Islam better than you do, will be able to explain what Islam is really about, and why so many people think of it as a religion of terror.
