I had "islam" as a grad student in the early 1970s...before PC...I can tell you in detail all about Mo's life and also the "conversion by the sword"...the sad thing is the islamists never removed from ALL their books this insane murderous tenet...which of course is denied...
Amanda - this is an outstanding book that has been very well researched and documented by Robert Spencer! I highly recommend it to anyone that really wants to understand the roots and history of Islam! Great book!
Not much to understand Jim accept they don't belong in the USA. This is suppose to be a free country and they do not subscribe to the freedoms we have, only the discipline of there religion. The rest of us have learned to live a free life with a dual consensus for our liberty and freedom to practice religion. Islam will not allow those two differences to exist because like our latest terrorist they have no allegiance other than there way of life. I do believe with all my heart that they are here to take down our USA not to co exist. Keeps going the way it is they will have to fight the socialists who would surrender in a second and become Muslim in a second because they are a gutless conniving bunch of cowards. Give me liberty or give me death rings a bell on my side.
Did I get this from you (I can't remember). But anyway, we should be putting a stop to this business ourselves. Our worthless government never will so we should be getting in their faces. They shouldn't feel comfortable pulling this crap in our nation. The guy sounds like he has a New York accent too. You would think New Yorkers would give them hell.
Then we have this sort of thing happening in Texas...on 9/11 no less!!!:
This sign was posted at Harwin Central Mall in Houston, Texas by Muslim shop owners on the anniversary of 9/11. Iman Ali was one of the terrorists that flew a plane into the World Trade Center.
Yeah they're really feeling victimized and stereotyped here -- can't you tell? I say we give them a reason to feel victimized once in a while. This makes my blood boil!
I've heard reports of Tea Party parafinalia merchants being ran out of malls but apparently no one in Harwin Central Mall was outraged enough to raise a stink over this! Why not!?!
With terrorism now here at home no one is safe even on military bases I guess Chuck Schmuer /Feinstein / Dodd and the rest of these terrorist helpers will make a larger sign in all languages known to mankind
"This is a gun free zone" thus these signs should stop future massacres as criminals will follow the rules of sign reading..These people should be tried for treason as they prevented citizens from the God Given right to protect ones family and self protection.
Another "Gun Free Zone" Tragedy.
Apparently it’s not enough for our government that the heroes in America’s armed forces risk their lives overseas defending our freedom.
These days, our soldiers aren't even safe here at home stationed on secure military bases.
On November 5th, a lone gunman murdered 13 fully-trained, ready to deploy soldiers, and wounded 29 more, in the most shocking terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11.
How was Nidal Hasan, a psychologist, able to take down so many trained soldiers? Because the government thinks its better to keep it’s armed service members unarmed . . .
That’s right. Our military men and woman are banned from carrying the weapons they are trained and trusted to use in the heat of combat.
President Clinton authored this asinine policy back in 1993 when he declared all military bases “Gun Free Zones.”
As you know, “Gun Free Zones” do nothing but assure criminals, and now terrorists, that they will find unarmed victims defenseless against a homicidal rampage.
Maybe I’m crazy, but I’d rather the soldiers delivered a barrage of bullets to end Hasan’s attack the second he opened fire.
I’d rather Hasan was dead and the heroes he murdered were still alive.
But because of Clinton’s ingenious policy of an unarmed armed forces, this psychopath methodically executed soldier after soldier before a local traffic cop could arrive on the scene.
If we didn't have “Gun Free Zones” and our armed forces were . . . I don't know . . . ARMED, Nadir Hasan would have met bullets instead of bodies.
On this Veteran’s Day, remember that the safety of our armed forces is of paramount importance whether it’s on the battlefield or here at home.
Please join the National Association of Gun Rights in our battle against "Gun Free Zones."
LIVING “BY THE BOOK”…
“The most relevant point is that here is a man (Hasan) doing exactly what it says in his “holy book”
Here he is following these things it says in his book:
“Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]…
until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.” (Surah 9:29)
“When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters [non-moslims] wherever you find them.
Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” (Surah 9:5)
“Believers! Know that idolators [non-moslims] are unclean.” (Surah 9:28)
“If you fear treachery from any of your allies, you may fairly retaliate by breaking off
your treaty with them.” (Surah 9:12)
“Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends.” (Surah 5:51)
“Fight unbelievers [non-moslims] who are near to you.” (Surah 9:123)
“Unbelievers [non-moslims] are enemies of Allah and they will roast in hell.” (Surah 41:14)
“The Day of Resurrection will not arrive until the Moslims make war against the Jews and
kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say:
‘Oh Moslem, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’”
(Sahih Bukhari 004.52.176)
“Unbelievers [non-moslims] are those who say: ‘God is one of three.’ There is but one God.
If they do not desist from so saying, those of them that disbelieve shall be sternly punished.”
“The Christians say: The Christ is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths;
they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them.” (Sura 9:30)
“The unbelievers [non-moslims] are the firewood of hell.” (Surah 72:15)
“When you meet the unbelievers [non-moslims], smite their necks, then when you have made
wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom,
until the war lays down its burdens.” (Surah 47:4)
“Prophet make war on the unbelievers [non-moslims] and the hypocrites [non-literalist moslims]
and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home.” (Surah 9:73)
THAT’s the relevant issue here.
Anyone who believes these things are true, is BY DEFINITION a threat to whatever country they reside in.
If islam were a small cult of a few 1000 people, they would be persona non-grata in ANY civilized country.
But since there’s a billion of them, some people think it’s politically expedient to allow people with such beliefs into America?”
A post on newsbusters.org Nov 13, 2009 by notonmywatch
(how many centuries has islam had to remove or greatly modify these statements…well, how many?) http://conservablogs.com/theconservativecrawfish
Geez. I made some posts last weekend sticking up for Islam, mainly because my Christian faith demands I forgive, and also that I judge only my the meaure of which I expect to be judged.
Another reason I defended the general faith of Islam is also a naive good will on my part. I refuse to stereotype and to stick an entire religion into a shoebox. I believe in the distinguishment of religion, and extremism, and that bad people do not represent the collective. I base this upon my time I spent fighting in Iraq with the 3rd Infantry US Army division in 2005.
We fought extremists, people who were blinded by hate. But yet were greeted by smiling faces and warm expressions by the majority of people who were happy they were experiencing freedom. These same Muslims would pray to Mecca, and do all the traditions of the Qu'ran, yet were peaceful to us, so I quickly distinguished the fact there are good and bad Islam.
But I'm furious now. These extremists are COWARDS! They fight like the purest form of low-life yellow pukes I've ever seen. If you have a coviction, if you think that Allah has charged you with fighting infidels, then take up arms and fight them man to man, face to face. Don't open fire on helpless troops doing paperwork, dont set up IED's on roadsides to blow up cooks, quartermasters, clerks, and whoever else is just driving by not fighting you, don't shoot innocent people, and kids from a h*** in a trunk of a car, The muslim extremists are so weak, so pathetic, and so cowardly it makes me sick. They have no guts. They cannot stand and fight the forces of good face to face, and they never will. I can't even put it into words how much I hate these muslim extremists, I am ready for my next deployment so that I can show them how it's done.
The picture above of the business closing for the "martyrdom" on 9/11....it...makes me furious the likes of which I haven't been since I enlisted in the Army for the sole purpose of killing these guys!! I have a constant battle within my own heart. Of hate, pure black hatred, and peace. God's peace and love for all people. They battle every moment of everyday. I try to be reasonable, hence my posting defending freedom of religion and such, but these days I feel we have to draw a line in the sand. Can Muslims openly serve in the military? They certainly have a right too, and many Muslims with foreign sounding names have died fighting for the USA. But we have to be careful so no other Maj. Hasans go Jihad crazy and kill 13 people ever again.
In a speech the other day, J McCain said something to the effect of, "we must'nt let political correctness impede national security", and that pretty much sums it up. Although defining this and enforcing it present complications.
So I guess in closing I haven't really made much sense with this post. But it reflects my heart, which is just as muddled with emotions. Are ALL Muslims evil? No. Are all Christians perfect? No.
But as far as Evil is concerned it's much more prevalent with the faith of Islam. It's getting harder and harder to defend the concept I believe in. These acts of murder, these extremists, they are evil. We need to fight them, we will fight them. The murderers of Allah will not stand, they will fall like the weak and baseless souls they are.
Why are all Muslims (Islamists) world wide supporting the Islamic Nations move to create a new World Wide Caliphate through donations at their Mosques - this includes donation to Terriorist Organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood, al Quida, etc, etc.
Don't you find it strange that a so called Peaceful Religions practices are as hideous as any Marxist or Fascist Regime? ? ?
I can however say this. I'm beginning to bow to the notion that while not all Islam is evil, the one's who aren't evil are willing to bow to the ones who are before siding with the good.
I respect your input, and opinion. They are both highly validated and based in facts, and above that you strongly believe what you say and you state it fearlessly and with convition! These are important qualities in life. But I cannot subscribe wholesale to the notion that Islam = Evil. (Altough it's beginning to look that way).
If all Muslims worldwide are supporting the Islamic Nations move to create a "World Wide Caliphate", I don't know about it. Trust me, the vast majority of Iraqi and Afghani people have no interest in these politics, and they hate Al Quaeda more than you and I! The average citizen of Iraq and Afghanistan HATES the extremists, for they have brought war and destruction on that region via the most powerful military on the planet for almost nine years! These countries are populated by people who are farmers, cattle herders, and simple peaceful people.
There's just a scattered collective of Taliban left, mostly based out of Syria, Turkey, Yemen, Egypt, and some others. They are smart. They are clever, and very hard to find and kill. Hence we have not captured the Prince of Darkness himself Osama.
I think you and I are thinking very similar here, I hate AlQuaeda, and the Taliban, and Muslim extremists with all my heart. They are evil and gutless and if we let them they will kill all of us. We are charged with upholding our constitution and defending our nation, and our families.
