The Myths of Islam, Part 1

Islam Means ‘Peace’

The Myth:
Lesser educated Muslims sometimes claim that the root word of Islam is “al-Salaam,” which is “peace” in Arabic.

The Truth:
The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” There is no controversy about this among Islamic scholars.

Submission and peace can be very different concepts, even if a form of peace is often brought about through forcing others into submission.

In truth, the Qur’an not only calls Muslims to submit to Allah, it also commands them to subdue people of other religions until they are in a full state of submission to Islamic rule. This has inspired the aggressive history of Islam and its success in conquering other cultures.

Islam Respects Women as Equals

The Myth:
The Qur’an places men and women on equal foundation before Allah. Each person is judged according to his or her own deeds. Women have equal rights under Islamic law.

The Truth:
Merely stating that individuals will be judged as such by Allah does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards. In fact, Sura 37:22-23 implies that women will be punished on Judgment Day for sins committed by their husbands.

There is no ambiguity in the Qur’an, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men, despite the efforts of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically held no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women were made into sex slaves by the very men who killed their husbands and brothers.

There are at least three Qur’anic verses in which Allah makes it clear that a Muslim master has full sexual access to his female slaves, yet there is not one that prohibits rape.

The Qur’an gives Muslim men permission to beat their wives for disobedience. It plainly says that husbands are “a degree above” wives. The Hadith says that women are intellectually inferior, and that they comprise the majority of Hell’s occupants.

Under Islamic law, a man may divorce his wife at the drop of a hat. If he wishes to remarry her, then she must first have sex with another man. Men are exempt from such degradations.Muslim women are not free to marry whomever they please, as are Muslim men. Their husband may bring other wives into the marriage bed. She must be sexually available to him at all times (as a field ready to be “tilled,” according to the holy book of Islam).

Muslim women do not inherit property in equal portions to males. Their testimony in court is considered to be worth only half that of a man’s. Unlike a man, she must cover her head and often her face.

If a woman wants to prove that she was raped, then there must be four male witnesses to corroborate her account. Otherwise she will be jailed or stoned to death for confessing to “adultery.”

Given all of this, it is quite a stretch to say that men and women have “equality under Islam” based on obscure theological analogies or comparisons. This is an entirely new stratagem that is designed to appeal to modern tastes, but is in sharp disagreement with the reality of Islamic law and history.

Jihad Means ‘Inner Struggle’

The Myth:
Islam’s Western apologists sometimes claim that since the Arabic word, Jihad, literally means “fight” or “struggle,” it refers to an “inner struggle” rather than holy war.

The Truth:
This is extremely difficult to reconcile with the Qur’an, which, for example, exempted the disabled and elderly from Jihad (4:95). This would make no sense if the word is being used merely within the context of spiritual struggle. It is also unclear why Muhammad would use graphic language, such as smiting fingers and heads from the hands and necks of unbelievers if he were speaking merely of personal development.

With this in mind, Muslims themselves usually admit that there are two meanings to the word, but insist that “inner struggle” is the “greater Jihad,” whereas “holy war” is the “lesser.” In fact, this misconception is based only on a tiny handful of extremely weak and unreliable Hadith.

By contrast, the most reliable of all Hadith is that of Bukhari. The word, Jihad, is mentioned over 200 times in reference to the words of Muhammad and each one is a clear connotation to holy war. By contrast, Bukhari does not contain a single reference to Jihad within the context of “personal struggle.”

Islam is a Religion of Peace

The Myth:
Muhammad was a peaceful man who taught his followers to be the same. Muslims lived peacefully for centuries, only fighting in self-defense when it was necessary. True Muslims would never act aggressively.

The Truth:
Muhammad organized 65 military campaigns in the last ten years of his life and personally led 27 of them. The more power that he attained, the smaller the excuse needed to go to battle, until finally he began attacking tribes merely because they were not part of his growing empire.

After Muhammad’s death, his most faithful followers and even his own family turned on each other almost immediately. There were four Caliphs (leaders) in the first twenty-five years. Three of the four were murdered. The third Caliph was murdered by the son of the first. The fourth Caliph was murdered by the fifth, who left a 100-year dynasty that was ended in a gruesome, widespread bloodbath by descendants of Muhammad’s uncle.

Muhammad’s own daughter, Fatima, and his son-in-law, Ali, who both survived the pagan hardship during the Meccan years safe and sound, did not survive Islam after the death of Muhammad. Fatima died of stress from persecution within three months, and Ali was later assassinated. Their son (Muhammad’s grandson) was killed in battle with the faction that became today’s Sunnis. His people became Shias. The relatives and personal friends of Muhammad were mixed into both warring groups, which then fractured further into hostile sub-divisions as Islam grew.

Muhammad left his men with instructions to take the battle against the Christians, Persians and Jews. For the next four centuries, Muslim armies steamrolled over unsuspecting neighbors, plundering them of loot and slaves, and forcing the survivors to either convert or pay tribute at the point of a sword.

Companions of Muhammad lived to see Islam declare war on every major religion in the world in just the first few decades following his death – pressing the Jihad against Hindus, Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, and Buddhists.

By the time of the Crusades (when the Europeans began fighting back), Muslims had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world by the sword, from Spain to Syria, and across North Africa. The Arab slave-trading routes would stay open for another 1300 years, until pressure from Christian-based countries forced Islamic nations to declare the practice illegal (in theory).

Today, there is not another religion in the world that consistently produces terrorism in the name of religion as does Islam. The most dangerous Muslims are nearly always those who interpret the Qur’an most transparently. They are the fundamentalists or purists of the faith, and believe in Muhammad’s mandate to spread Islamic rule by the sword, putting to death those who will not submit.

The holy texts of Islam are saturated with verses of violence and hatred toward those outside the faith. In sharp contrast to the Bible, which generally moves from relatively violent passages to far more peaceful ones, the Qur’an travels the exact opposite path. The handful of earlier verses that speak of tolerance are overwhelmed by an avalanche of later ones that carry a much different message. While Old Testament verses of blood and guts are generally bound by historical context within the text itself, Qur’anic imperatives to violence usually appear open-ended.

By any objective measure, the “Religion of Peace” has been the harshest, bloodiest religion the world has ever known.

Refutation of Idiocy-Part 2

The above pictures should ring a bell. The one on the left is what the lame stream media allowed us to see before Nick Berg was beheaded. The one on the right was after his head had been sawed off, essentially with a kitchen butter knife, while he screamed in pain and terror. A total innocent. And, if you think it can’t, WON’T happen to YOU, freakin’ think again. THIS is what the media doesn’t WANT you to know about, what all the appeasers, surrender monkeys and idiots in congress don’t want you to see or realize. This is what the talk of “religion of peace” is meant to cover up; what the terms such as “radical” or “extremist” are meant to convey, when in fact, it is what ALL good muslims believe and will do.

Notice the lack of “moderate”, “peaceful” muslims stepping up to the plate and denouncing these so-called “radicals” and “extremists”? THAT’S BECAUSE THERE AREN’T ANY—THEY DON’T EXIST!!!

Well, it’s time to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!

Of course not. All murderers should be pursued regardless of race or religion.1

“Should we wait until a school bus is seized or a school taken over?”Of course not. I disagree with your notion that the religion of Islam in itself kills people2. People kill people. Just like the Catholic church didn’t molest children… The priests themselves within the Catholic church molested children. Handguns don’t go off by themselves either and so on so forth. Murderers come in all religions… Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, White-supremacist religions, Black-supremacist religions etc etc it doesn’t matter. Just because a terrorist or murderer is religious, doesn’t mean that religion promotes terrorists.3

I don’t believe all 1.some billion Muslims are radical extremists4. Just like I don’t think all Christians are radical extremists.5 Yes, there are radical Christians and Muslims that pervert religion to fit their radical and murderous agendas6. You shouldn’t broad brush the entire religion just because a few murderers choose to slit throats while chanting “Allah Akbar”.7

Please do drop the references to Christianity or Buddhism when talking about Islam.

Islam is not a religion as we understand it in the west.8

Christians don’t go around cutting heads off and making a video of it. Neither do they strap bombs to children to blow up and kill people.

Islam is not a religion of peace. The teachings of Muhammed specifically call for all manner of violence against the infidel.

When was the last time you recall a Christian pastor exhorting his congregation to go out and kill people?9 Or a Buddhist chanting death to America and then strapping a bomb around himself with the intent of killing people indiscriminatly…men, women and children?

I sincerely do hope you take the time to educate yourself.

“Christians don’t go around cutting heads off and making a video of it. Neither do they strap bombs to children to blow up and kill people.”

Neither do 99.99% of peaceful Muslims.10

When was the last time you recall a Christian pastor exhorting his congregation to go out and kill people?”

Pat Robertson – “You know, I don’t know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we’re trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it,”… “We have the ability to take him (Chavez) out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability”… “We don’t need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator,”… “It’s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.”11

********************
1. Irrelevant. Islam is subornation of murder. “kill them wherever you find them”; “fight them until”; “I am commanded to fight”; “so that they kill others and are killed”. Exactly what part of this do you not comprehend?

2. Islam motivates Muslims to murder; that is its purpose: to enrich Muhammad through conquest. Islam has no other function. This is why Al-Anfal & At-Taubah are entirely dedicated and devoted to warmongering.

3. The Conquistadors acted in contravention of Christ’s teaching and example. Priests who molest children do so in contravention of Christ’s teaching and example. Muslims who engage in terrorism & genocide do so in obedience to Allah and in emulation of Muhammad. Only damn fools ignore this critical difference.

4. ‘Radical’, ‘extremist’ & ‘fundamentalist’ are diversionary fabulisms. Islam is literalist, absolutist, supremacist & triumphalism. Allah set the standard; Muhammad exemplified it; that is Islam: conquest, genocide & terror.
5. Show me the New Testament Book, Chapter & Verse in which Jesus Christ sanctified & exemplified conquest, genocide & terrorism! Exceptions are not the rule; deviation does not establish doctrine, scripture does.
6. Islam is Muhammad’s agenda: obtaining wealth, income, power and sex slaves through the professional practice of piracy and extortion. Christians who murder contravene Christ’s teaching & example. Muslims who conquer, terrorize, rape, pillage & plunder obey Allah & emulate Muhammad.
7. Allah commanded & Muhammad exemplified the conduct described. They define Islam, I don’t! Its what Muslims do because its what Islam is!

8. Islam is a continuing criminal enterprise with a fabulistic, plagiarized faith component. The false faith component has two functions: to camouflage Islam’s true purpose and to motivate men to enrich Muhammad through piracy.

9. Irrelevant: such an act would be in contravention of orthodox Christian doctrine.

10. Offensive Jihad is fard kifaya; defensive Jihad is fard ayn. Learn the difference.

11. Islam requires its believers to kill and be killed. Islam is all about making war for Muhammad’s enrichment & empowerment. Christianity is about God’s plan of salvation through repentance & forgiveness. You have proved nothing of value.

Refutation of Idiocy-Part 1

This post comes from Snooper’s place here and here. It came about through a comment thread going on over there and a particular commenter just wasn’t getting the message.

Normally, this commenter is extremely antagonistic, but through this thread he seemed to genuinely want to understand and just wasn’t getting it. So, our wonderful guest poster put this and Part 2 together for him.

The Myth vs Fact series has drawn blood from Barack in ’08 . In order to deal adequately with several points raised in the comments, I reproduced them here in a block quote, inserting superscripts at the end of each significant point.

My responses are in an ordered list, keyed to the superscripts.

Keep it real…. Should we shut down mosques across the country and
deport all non-citizen Muslims here in America?1 What about internment camps for Muslims here in America2 until the end of the so-called “war on terror”? Is this “war on terror” a war against the terrorists that want to harm us or a war against Islam itself?3 […]

You call the Islam “peaceful” slogan a “myth”4. How will
that kind of talk win hearts and minds5 of “peaceful” 6Muslims in that region that may want to help us?7 […]

If terrorist are using the name of Islam, Christianity, Budhism etc etc, it doesn’t mean that Islam, Christianity, Budhism etc etc promotes terrorists.8 […]

Muslims (approx 1 billion) in general don’t preach hate and death to
America. If one does do that, he/she must be doing that for his own
interests.9 […]

1. Barack has jumped ahead, assuming a conclusion which does not automatically flow from the fact presented. The fact: Islam is not peaceful, does not imply Barack’s reductio ad absurdum.
In reality, Islam’s founder declared perpetual war & open season on all Kuffar. Pursuant to declaration of war contained in At-Taubah 29, Usama bin Ladin and others have carried out attacks on our soil and declared an intent to carry out further attacks. Al-Qaeda is simply “the base”, another name for the Ummah al-Islamiyya: the Nation of Islam.
The bottom line is this: Islam has declared and is prosecuting a genocidal war against us. Islam does not give up. Islam does not quit. When it loses a battle, Islam regroups, rearms and resumes fighting.
Islam does not fight by sword alone, but by heart, tongue and pen; it also fights demographically, by reproducing like rats.
There is an Islamic fifth column on our soil, segments of which have been detected plotting to perpetrate mass casualty attacks. They don’t advertise; they do not wear uniforms. They are identified only when they attack or when they blunder. Should we wait impatiently for the next beltway sniping, mall shooting or vehicular homicide? Should we wait until a school bus is seized or a school taken over? Is there some reason why we should give Islam a lever, fulcrum and place to stand?
2. Given two alternatives: deportation and internment camps, the choice is obvious, on humanitarian grounds as well as cost and security. deportation is the best choice.
3. Terror is a tactic, not an enemy. Terror neither declared nor prosecuted war against us; Islam did. The war is one of Islam against us.
Every Muslim wants to harm us. Every Muslim wants Dar Ul-Harb reduced to nothing; entirely supplanted by Dar Ul-Islam.
Muslims are those who submit to Allah’s will; who believe in Allah, obey his commands and emulate his Apostle. In Part 1 (“Know Thine Enemy Series”) I gave you links to Muhammad’s Sunnah as well as what Allah commanded. Read the definition of believers given in 33:23. Read of the relationship between Allah and the believers in 9:111. None but a damn fool or a traitor can read those verses without cursing Islam!
4. Islam is neither a religion nor peaceful. Those are facts, not assertions. Islam’s purpose is Muhammad’s enrichment and empowerment through the profession of piracy and extortion. Those facts are proven in the “Know Thine Enemy Series”.
5. “Winning the hearts and minds” of Muslims is the mindless babble of an AssIdiot! Muslims are Allah’s slaves; essentially zombies. Follow the link to 9:111 and read it carefully.
Allah has purchased of the believers their lives… so that they kill others and are killed. They believe that only Allah has the right to rule; the right to be worshiped.
Rebellion against Allah is, to them, the worst offense: an injustice to be punished by death in this world and fire in the next.
6. If they are peaceful, they are hypocrites or apostates, not Muslims. Islam is not peaceful, it is violent, terrorist & genocidal.
7. No Muslims want to help us. If they want to help us, they are hypocrites or apostates, Muslim in name only.
8. Islam sanctifies terrorism. I refer you to its accursed canon of scripture: 3:151, 8:12, 33:26-27, 59:2, Bukhari1.7.331 and Bukhari4.52.220.
All of those citations were quoted in the “Know Thine Enemy Series”. You should read it!! That is original text, not hijacking, perversion nor distortion. Islam is piracy!!! Terrorism is an Islamic sacrament!!! Click the links; read the proof, the ample testimony of Allah and his Apostle.
9. Preaching hatred of all Kuffar was in Muhammad’s interest: to persuade Muslims that their eternal destiny; admission to the celestial bordello and avoidance of Hellfire is dependent on killing and subjugating us so that our property would accrue to Muhammad.
That is exactly what the Qur’an is all about. Any Imam who preaches what Allah commanded and Muhammad exemplified in his Sunnah preaches hatred, piracy, rape, pillage, plunder, terror and genocide. That’s what Islam is; what Muslims do in obedience to Allah; in emulation of Muhammad.

The hyperlinks in this article give you access to the entire Qur’an, as translated by Yusuf Ali, Shakir & Pickthall, and to Sahih Bukhari as translated by Kahn. From there, you can easily access three other collections of hadith. Read them and curse Islam!!! Don’t take my word for it. Don’t take anyone’s word for it! Follow those links and the other links contained in the “Know Thine Enemy Series”. Read and learn. Then share your knowledge with others as I am doing.

Refutation of Idiocy-Part 1

This post comes from Snooper’s place here and here. It came about through a comment thread going on over there and a particular commenter just wasn’t getting the message.

Normally, this commenter is extremely antagonistic, but through this thread he seemed to genuinely want to understand and just wasn’t getting it. So, our wonderful guest poster put this and Part 2 together for him.

The Myth vs Fact series has drawn blood from Barack in ’08 . In order to deal adequately with several points raised in the comments, I reproduced them here in a block quote, inserting superscripts at the end of each significant point.

My responses are in an ordered list, keyed to the superscripts.

Keep it real…. Should we shut down mosques across the country and
deport all non-citizen Muslims here in America?1 What about internment camps for Muslims here in America2 until the end of the so-called “war on terror”? Is this “war on terror” a war against the terrorists that want to harm us or a war against Islam itself?3 […]

You call the Islam “peaceful” slogan a “myth”4. How will
that kind of talk win hearts and minds5 of “peaceful” 6Muslims in that region that may want to help us?7 […]

If terrorist are using the name of Islam, Christianity, Budhism etc etc, it doesn’t mean that Islam, Christianity, Budhism etc etc promotes terrorists.8 […]

Muslims (approx 1 billion) in general don’t preach hate and death to
America. If one does do that, he/she must be doing that for his own
interests.9 […]

1. Barack has jumped ahead, assuming a conclusion which does not automatically flow from the fact presented. The fact: Islam is not peaceful, does not imply Barack’s reductio ad absurdum.
In reality, Islam’s founder declared perpetual war & open season on all Kuffar. Pursuant to declaration of war contained in At-Taubah 29, Usama bin Ladin and others have carried out attacks on our soil and declared an intent to carry out further attacks. Al-Qaeda is simply “the base”, another name for the Ummah al-Islamiyya: the Nation of Islam.
The bottom line is this: Islam has declared and is prosecuting a genocidal war against us. Islam does not give up. Islam does not quit. When it loses a battle, Islam regroups, rearms and resumes fighting.
Islam does not fight by sword alone, but by heart, tongue and pen; it also fights demographically, by reproducing like rats.
There is an Islamic fifth column on our soil, segments of which have been detected plotting to perpetrate mass casualty attacks. They don’t advertise; they do not wear uniforms. They are identified only when they attack or when they blunder. Should we wait impatiently for the next beltway sniping, mall shooting or vehicular homicide? Should we wait until a school bus is seized or a school taken over? Is there some reason why we should give Islam a lever, fulcrum and place to stand?
2. Given two alternatives: deportation and internment camps, the choice is obvious, on humanitarian grounds as well as cost and security. deportation is the best choice.
3. Terror is a tactic, not an enemy. Terror neither declared nor prosecuted war against us; Islam did. The war is one of Islam against us.
Every Muslim wants to harm us. Every Muslim wants Dar Ul-Harb reduced to nothing; entirely supplanted by Dar Ul-Islam.
Muslims are those who submit to Allah’s will; who believe in Allah, obey his commands and emulate his Apostle. In Part 1 (“Know Thine Enemy Series”) I gave you links to Muhammad’s Sunnah as well as what Allah commanded. Read the definition of believers given in 33:23. Read of the relationship between Allah and the believers in 9:111. None but a damn fool or a traitor can read those verses without cursing Islam!
4. Islam is neither a religion nor peaceful. Those are facts, not assertions. Islam’s purpose is Muhammad’s enrichment and empowerment through the profession of piracy and extortion. Those facts are proven in the “Know Thine Enemy Series”.
5. “Winning the hearts and minds” of Muslims is the mindless babble of an AssIdiot! Muslims are Allah’s slaves; essentially zombies. Follow the link to 9:111 and read it carefully.
Allah has purchased of the believers their lives… so that they kill others and are killed. They believe that only Allah has the right to rule; the right to be worshiped.
Rebellion against Allah is, to them, the worst offense: an injustice to be punished by death in this world and fire in the next.
6. If they are peaceful, they are hypocrites or apostates, not Muslims. Islam is not peaceful, it is violent, terrorist & genocidal.
7. No Muslims want to help us. If they want to help us, they are hypocrites or apostates, Muslim in name only.
8. Islam sanctifies terrorism. I refer you to its accursed canon of scripture: 3:151, 8:12, 33:26-27, 59:2, Bukhari1.7.331 and Bukhari4.52.220.
All of those citations were quoted in the “Know Thine Enemy Series”. You should read it!! That is original text, not hijacking, perversion nor distortion. Islam is piracy!!! Terrorism is an Islamic sacrament!!! Click the links; read the proof, the ample testimony of Allah and his Apostle.
9. Preaching hatred of all Kuffar was in Muhammad’s interest: to persuade Muslims that their eternal destiny; admission to the celestial bordello and avoidance of Hellfire is dependent on killing and subjugating us so that our property would accrue to Muhammad.
That is exactly what the Qur’an is all about. Any Imam who preaches what Allah commanded and Muhammad exemplified in his Sunnah preaches hatred, piracy, rape, pillage, plunder, terror and genocide. That’s what Islam is; what Muslims do in obedience to Allah; in emulation of Muhammad.
