The Truth about Islam: Removing the Politically Correct Camouflage
Peace and Jihad
I have made some claims about Islam on the RNL, and while I’ve tried to support those claims with sound evidence, I have been met with strong opposition from many RNL readers. I stand by everything I have ever said about Islam because I have taken the time to do my homework. I have read the Qur’an. I have read many of the Hadith. I even understand why the Hadith are important. I also understand the truth about jihad, and that most of what the Western world knows about Islam is not true. This is why I have continuously urged people to do their own homework: so they can find out for themselves that I am speaking the truth. Unfortunately, the continued attacks against my well-researched and thoroughly documented posts have indicated that a more direct approach is in order. Therefore, I hereby present the first of what will likely be many posts detailing the truth about Islam that no one will tell you: not Islam, not our schools, not our media – not even our own government.
However, before I begin, there is a very important point I want to make, and you need to understand. I am not attacking individual Muslims. I fully understand that there are many Muslims who are otherwise well-meaning people who just want to live in peace and raise their families. My objection is to Islam and what it teaches. In my opinion, Islam is not what it claims to be, and has deceived hundreds of millions of people throughout history.
Now, let’s address two of the most pressing issues about Islam as they relate to the security of the United States.
Islam is not a religion of Peace
Islam directs the faithful to wage war against anyone who refuses to convert to Islam until they are dead and there is only one religion in the world: Islam. I want to start with the following passages from the Qur’an because they show that Islam is not the religion of peace that it and its apologists claim it to be:
Qur’an:4:77 “Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?”
Qur’an:8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.'”
Qur’an:8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”
Ishaq:208 “When Allah gave permission to his Apostle to fight, the second Aqaba contained conditions involving war which were not in the first act of submission. Now we bound themselves to war against all mankind for Allah and His Apostle. He promised us a reward in Paradise for faithful service. We pledged ourselves to war in complete obedience to Muhammad no matter how evil the circumstances.”
The Qur’an is not the only holy book in Islam: the Hadith are equal to the Qur’an
The Hadith, or sayings and acts of Muhammad, are important to Islam because they make it possible to make an operable religion from the incoherent and often self-contradictory collection of “revelations” in the Qur’an. However, the Hadith draw their authority from several clear passages in the Qur’an, among the strongest being:
Qur’an 33:21 “You have indeed a noble paradigm in the Apostle of Allah.” [A second translation reads:] “You have in (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for anyone to follow.” [A third reads:] “Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day.” [A fourth reads:] “Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent prototype.” [A fifth says:] “You have indeed a noble paradigm [archetype, exemplar, standard, model, or pattern] to follow in Allah’s Apostle.”
The Qur’an goes on to command the Muslim faithful to obey the words and actions of Muhammad:
Qur’an 4:65 “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.”
Qur’an 33:36 “No Muslim has any choice after Allah and His Apostle have decided a matter.”
Qur’an 33:56 “Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. So believers, send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect – a worthy salutation. Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger and speak evil things of them – Allah has cursed them and prepared a humiliating torment.”
Qur’an 33:57 “Those who speak negatively of Allah and His Apostle shall be cursed.”
So, please understand, when I quote from the Hadith, it is as good as quoting the Qur’an. However, to avoid creating a straw man as much as I can, I will only quote from four of the most respected authors of the Hadith: Ibn Ishaq, Sahih Muslim, Bukhari and Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari.
Jihad in America
I took the time to establish that fighting anyone who does not submit to Islam is decreed by Allah, through Muhammad and is written in the Qur’an and Hadith to show that jihad is not just some internal struggle as Muslim apologists often claim. We will deal more specifically with Jihad later; the important part you need to understand now is that fighting all infidels until they submit or are killed and making Islam the only religion on earth are both commanded by Allah. These are not myths, misunderstandings or lies. And this is important to understand because jihad is being waged against America from within our own borders. It has been for a long time now.
“I think if we are outside this country [America], we can say, ‘Oh, Allah, destroy America, but once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it.”
He is also reported to have told a Muslim audience that the goal of Muslims in America is to turn the U.S. into an Islamic State, even if it take a hundred years.
“In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.” (From the transcript of an audio tape sermon by Wahhaj, as quoted by Paul M. Barret, “One Imam Traces the Path of Islam in Black America,” Wall Street Journal, 24 Oct 2003, A1)
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.” (Lisa Gardiner, “American Muslim Leader Urges Faithful to Spread Word,” San Ramon Valley (CA) Herald, 4 July 1998)
Now, I have already posted about the Islamic links to the current Administration, and, if this series continues, I will return to them. But I want it known that these links pre-date President Obama. Alamoudi’s deputy, the same Alamoudi who was convicted for funding terrorism, had nearly unfettered access to the White House through Karl Rove (“Infiltration” by Paul Sperry, Nelson Current, Nashville TN, 2005, pg. xviii).
So, I hope the point you will take from this post is that Islam does command war against infidels, and that it intends to conquer and establish Shari’a Law in America.
