Words and Death: The Influence of Instruction and Taqiyya (Deception)

Neville Chamberlain's inability to detect deception cost the lives of millions.  Reports of rape of non-muslim women in Europe are in epidemic numbers. As we saw with the UK's response, there is a fear of being labeled a "racist" in connecting rape to religion, even though Muslim is not a race.  The "no-go zones", ridiculed on technicalities, but nonetheless real to those living near them, and the yielding to Iran's demands, all speak to a single source of influence:  words.  

There are roots for the misogyny, the sexual assaults and the overall violence, and these roots are all seen in the words.  
Words have power.  

Rape is close to murder, with the ramifications lasting a lifetime.  It not only has the desensitised of violence, as an element, but actual sexual arousal associated with violence.  Whereas sexual arousal is associated with tenderness, gentleness, welcomeness, and intimate sharing, rape has intrusion, pain, violence, bullying, unwelcomeness, in the very locale of its opposite:  intimacy.  This makes rape the ultimate irony, as it turns good into evil.   

Nazi Desensitization Process through words and pictures.  

Adolf Hitler sought to bring youth into a collision course with Jews, in the "Hitler Youth" training.  For example, a Jew would not be called for specific death, but a rat would be shown, and then a Jew, with the unnecessary answer to the question, "What do we do with rats?" 

Hitler Youth program, however, did not call outright for the death of Jews.  The people were desensitized to the point of accepting the 'unwritten' (with regard to Hitler's own signature) policy of "extermination." 

In other words, a "good German" accepted that Europe needed to be "cleansed" of its Jewish population. 

These words were powerful and they led to approximately 6 million Jewish deaths.  

German soldiers committed suicide over the atrocities and the traditional German military often resented the presence of the SS and the "special actions" they did among civilian populations.  

The words Hitler used were to de-sensitize German youth towards animosity towards Jews with the thought of eradication. 

ISIS, today, is not only different, but in regards to persuasion, is much more powerful.  

Islamic teaching does not seek to de-sensitize people to killing of Jews, the way Hitler did by demonizing Jews and associating them with rats;

The Koran teaches conquest by death, and reward by death and finally, "certainty" by death.  

This is very different than what Hitler orchestrated. 

I.  The Use of Uncertainty

Life is uncertain. 

This is not in debate.  No one knows what tomorrow will bring and those that do find themselves embarrassed.  We may do educated guesswork, based upon patterns, but, even if all of the factors are present and tomorrow, we are certain such and such will happen, we may not awake tomorrow morning to learn if we were correct. 

Death comes to everyone.  

"There are no atheists in foxholes" is the mentality that even atheists recognize that there are times when the uncertainty in life can be overwhelming, especially as one gets older, there is a philosophical despair that most people confront:

What was the purpose of my life?

What becomes of all my labors in life?

What was the meaning of every day I lived in this life, and what will now become of me?

Is there life after death?

If not, was it worth it?

This sometimes is referred to as "Pascal's wager" and it is something that people, in general, seem to talk about at some point in life, even if it is delayed in life.  

We share, as human beings, certain attributes that Statement Analysis recognizes.  We are, for example, possessive creates, therefore, the pronoun "my" is not only something we use millions of times, but is something important to us, and how we relate to life.  

Even in denial, the pronoun "my" will come rushing to the tongue in a moment of emotion. 

Hitler had to overcome resistance to a culture that had a belief of "thou shalt not", no matter how watered down it had become, along with "do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."  This is often referred to as "western thought" with the major "thou shalt not" being a prohibition of murder.  Memorized in school or taught to children pre schooling, it was something Hitler had to overcome.  It took time to demonize the Jews, and it took persuasive language.  

                                            Not all societies were like this.  

Americans in World War II were stunned at the barbarity of the Japanese soldier, and it took awhile for them to realize that the Japanese did not have this "western" thought.  

Not all societies are like this today, either. 

Islam is different in that the religion is not a "religion or philosophy of persuasion" as is Christianity and Judaism.  Islam is a "religion, philosophy or ideology of coercion", that is, one in which force is not considered a pragmatic tool, but is prescribed. 

The violence is prescriptive.  

There is no need to overcome western thought, for western thought is foreign to Islam.  When an American official tweeted something about seeing American values in the Koran, it was laughed at, as if Hitler's top man was saying "Hitler loves Jews!"  Yet when the head of the FBI stumbles over words in defense of Islam, and Europe is awash in sexual violence and degradation of women, it begs the question of "Why?", but better to first learn:

Where does this come from?

When Obama says that Muslims were part of the founding fathers, people can laugh at such foolishness, but they fail to realize that words have consequences.  He mandates that his followers take the word "Islam" out of Islamic violence, or Islamic terrorism, that is, terrorism in the name of Islam. 

American values?

Here is the uncertainty.  Do not misinterpret this as a defense of Jihad activists.  It is not.  It is, however, an attempt to understand how the words persuade its followers, since its beginning, to violence and to sexual perversion.  

The teaching of Islam teaches that its god, "Allah" is allowed to change his mind.  Even if you follow the 5 principles of the Muslim religion, you are not guaranteed eternal life.  There are but two that are guaranteed certainty upon death:

1.  Jihad "martyrs"

2.  Women who die in childbirth.  

Beyond this, so that "Allah is not restrained from sovereignty", he can, at any time, change his mind on every other person than these two. 

So, from childhood on, the youth are taught that, for males, the only way they can be certain of eternal life is to kill for Islam.  

The reward?  Sexual bliss.  Think of this:  eternal reward and sexual activity are linked together.  How might this work itself out in life?  

What does "dying in childbirth" say about Islam's value of women?

Rape and Islam

Mohammad had many wives, including a little child of whom he consummated with by her 9th birthday. 

In Western thought, this is pedophilia; that is, sexual attraction to a child.  

Muslims are to imitate the "holy prophet's lifestyle" in their own, in order to please their god, Allah. 

If you look at websites that are dedicated to bringing news reports that main stream media are afraid to, for fear of being called "Islamaphobic", you will see, not weekly reports of mass murder, but daily reports.  Jihad Watch is a good place to begin your education and find out if this threat is real, or is it just hype.  

Sex and the Muslim 

The Koran says that they can not only have multiple wives, but they can, while out in conquests, take non muslim women for sexual reward:


Denmark, for instance, had as its national god, or principle passion, "multiculturalism."

Multiculturalism is neither good nor bad, it is just what it says:  a multitude of cultures.  Yet, in submitting to this ideology, they were forced to accept what a non-western culture held to be dear, including the teaching of the Koran.  

Islam is not only a coercive religion or ideology, but it is a static one, which opposes progress.  When we use the word "medieval", there is an inherent insult because they consider the time of Mohammad as "pristine" or "the best" time frame in history.  This is what is behind the overall degradation and insult to women.  Yet, women's groups are strangely quiet in this regard.  Are they also afraid of  the "racism" charge?

They are permitted to use deception, in conquest, but not to one another, but non muslims. 

This is why a mosque will not publicly speak against pedophilia, or 9-11, because it means speaking out against their own ideology, even if they personally find it to be wrong.  

As Europe has opened up the borders, with the European Union, they have not only lost or are losing their cultural identity, but they are finding their own laws being used against them by Islam.  Islamic conquest of Europe has been through colonization of Europe.  Massive migration left cities unprepared for the inevitable clash of cultures:  they projected their "western" belief to Islam. 

They were wrong. 

They did not see how powerful the influence of the words of the Koran or Mohammad's own life would be.  

Daily, we read of homosexuals being killed, women being raped (including those of intellectual disabilities), women denied basic rights, with the deaths all coming in the name of Islam, while Obama says it is not Islam.  

When the Egyptian coptic Christians were murdered, with crosses upon them, he said it was not about religion.  

Iran, we were told in past administrations, could not be allowed to develop the atomic bomb.  It has, since 1948, in an uninterrupted way, said it would destroy Israel off the map.  Israel has done many things to keep Islamic countries from gaining this weapon, including the use of military intervention.  

Ideologies drive us.  Words reveal us.  

The Soviets, even in communism, did not want to go to war with President Kennedy over Cuba, while Castro, in defeatist thinking, thought otherwise. 

Since 1945, no nuclear or atomic bomb has been detonated in anger.  The countries wish to live and have no death wish contrary to life.  

The number of deaths by war in the history of the world, going by population percentage, dropped dramatically since Nagasaki and Hiroshima.  Thus, the argument that it is a deterrent. 

People want to live and this is why President Kennedy was able to stare down the Soviets, and why President Reagan talked about "mutually assured destruction", knowing:  they want to live as much as we do. 

It is not so in Islam.  

In Islam, death is actually preferred since it promises "sexual bliss" to those who die for Allah. 

The words have meaning. 

This is an ideology that is not steeped in "thou shalt not murder" and "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
This is not an ideology that says "equal pay for equal work for women."

Women are arrested and flogged for...

uncovering their faces, or walking without a man, or seeking an education.  

In religions of persuasion, "voting" is the expected and converts are won by persuasion, which is why so many millions of dollars are flowing through religious programs to feed the hungry, for example.  

This is not an interest of Islam. 

Hitler had to overcome the resistance of "western" thought in his people in order to carry out death. 

In Islam, the children are raised to believe that death is their salvation and their certainty. 

Studies have shown, contrary to what the president has said, that those who become "radical", are actually not "radical" but have, on average, a 2 year span of "awakening and personal piety", that is, they become "serious about their religion" and are not disillusioned with the lack of employment.  

This is not the case, as we were told, where westerner "theft" (in oil prices?) has brought about such resentment. 

Nor is it the case of the Crusades, from a thousand years ago.  

Nor is it that Judaism calls for the death of followers of Mohammad, nor do we find Christians strapping themselves with bombs and killing non Christians.  

Islam was founded on violence and conquest, and has, consistently, acted upon this, and continues to do so.  Its words reveal its ideology.  

"Islam is a religion of peace" and if you disagree, you will quickly be taught a violent lesson.  This is no different than "coal in the mouth" of the German who dares not speak against Hitler, for fear of a violent and deadly reaction. 

That "Islam is a religion of peace" being even needed to be said, shows how it is a sensitive statement, itself.  Its own ideology calls for violence, and its history is uninterrupted violence since the first days.  

When Obama said that Muslims were part of the founding of our country, there were more than a few chuckles, but these were his words.  What country was he referring to?  The founding fathers of our country had a lot to say about Islam, including dire warnings to the "military religion", and barbaric practices.  Thomas Jefferson read the Koran to better learn how to defeat them.  

Obama is not stupid, and he knows Taqiyya, but could it be that he perceives the country as different than you and I do?

The Quran's Verses of Violence

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.  Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.  Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.  The spectacular displays are designed to get attention; something it does when a plane is hijacked and crashed into a building like in New York City.  

Is this Islam?  Is this its teaching?  If so, it must be in words.  

The target of Islamic violence is in order of priority:

1.  Unfaithful Muslims
2   Jews 
3  Christians
4.  Pagans, including homosexuals, unreligious, agnostics, atheists, and 'other' religions (Hindu, Buddhism).  

The belief that Israel has no right to live, nor any right to its own land, is a pathological hatred of Jews and all things Jewish.  Iranian leaders, just like Turkish, Iraqi, and other Muslim nations, use words which reveal their intentions to destroy Israel.  

The world held its breath in 1948, as soon as Israel was recognized as a "nation", when all the Muslim nations around them gathered together to make war and destroy them.  The same people who escaped Hitler's extermination attempts just 3 -10 years earlier, were now fighting for their lives, again, this time, surrounded, not by Nazis, but by all the nations in their vicinity, with little geographical and population asset from which to mount a defense. 

Now, the United States is engaged in sabotaging our ally, and arming its sworn enemy.  

The president's devotion to Islam is no longer something wondered about.  

Will Europe awaken and believe the words of the ideology, or must they lose their own lands?  Reports from some of the countries say that even reporters are afraid to identify Islamic rape or Islamic violence for what it is, with threats of losing their own careers. 

Remember how many Germans said, in 1945, that they had to join the Nazi party, or lose their jobs?

History has a way of repeating itself for those of us unwilling to learn from it.

Think of Winston Churchill’s statement to Neville Chamberlain after Munich in which Chamberlain, after meeting with Adolf Hitler, came home waving the agreement declaring it, "peace for our times."  Hitler was quoted as saying the agreement wasn't worth the paper it was written upon.

Churchill said,  “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.”

The Nazi ideology, as expressed in their words and in their actions, had devastating effects upon the lives of millions, yet they were up against 'western influence.'
How much more influential are direct words, especially when given to those who's brains are in development?

Muslim children are taught that Mohammad was the "perfect man", which includes all the ramifications for women and for violence, and that the Koran is perfectly divine, with its immediate call to death to unbelievers, and its targeting of women for degrading treatment 

The doctrine of deception:  Taqiyya

Taqiyya was first codified by Shia Muslims, primarily as a result of their historical experience. Long insisting that the caliphate rightly belonged to the prophet Muhammad's cousin and son-in-law, Ali (and subsequently his descendents), the Shia were a vocal and powerful branch of Islam that emerged following Muhammad's death. After the internal Islamic Fitna wars from the years 656 AD to 661 AD, however, the Shia became a minority branch, persecuted by mainstream Muslims or Sunnis – so-called because they follow the example or 'sunna' of Muhammad and his companions. Taqiyya became pivotal to Shia survival.

The Koran and Islam calls for subjugation by violence, and teaches a low value of women, including "eternal reward" of "virgins", setting the stage for the marriage of violence and sexuality.   The words, themselves, warn us.  
The data from Europe signals a major shift in populations, crime and a refusal to assimilate.  It is a colonialization of Europe by Islam.  

The Quran:

Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing... 
but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.  But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"  (Translation is from the Noble Quran)  The historical contextof this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries.  In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did).  The use of the word "persecution" by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution - "idtihad" - and oppression - a variation of "z-l-m" - do not appear in the verse).  The actual Arabic comes from "fitna" which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation.  Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until "religion is for Allah" - ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.
Quran (2:244) - "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."

Here is one that recognizes that some natural resistance might exist:  

Quran (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not." 

 Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time.  From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."

Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority".  This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be 'joining companions to Allah').

Quran (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."  

The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, who were led meekly to the slaughter.  These Muslims are killed in battle as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah.  This is the theological basis for today's suicide bombers.

Quran (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"

Quran (4:89) - "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."

Quran (4:95) - "Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward "  This passage criticizes "peaceful" Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah's eyes.  It also demolishes the modern myth that "Jihad" doesn't mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle.  Not only is this Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption.  (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man's protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).  Allah will allow the disabled into Paradise, but will provide a larger reward to those who are able to kill in his cause.

Quran (4:104) - "And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain..."  Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

Quran (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"  

Quran (8:15) - "O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey's end."

Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah"  

Note:  the critical part of this verse is to fight until "religion is only for Allah", meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the opposition.  According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) 
Muhammad further explains that "Allah must have no rivals."

this is why the US kept top secret Israel's nuclear program.  

Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."   

Quran (8:67) - "It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land..."

"And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah's Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape.  Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy."

Quran (8:65) - "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight..."

Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."  

According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam (prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religion's Five Pillars).  

Quran (9:14) - "Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people." 

Please note:  Humiliating and hurting non-believers not only has the blessing of Allah, but it is ordered as a means of carrying out his punishment and even "healing" the hearts of Muslims.

Quran (9:20) - "Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah's way are of much greater worth in Allah's sight. These are they who are triumphant." 

 The Arabic word interpreted as "striving" in this verse is the same root as "Jihad".  The context is  holy war.

Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."  

"People of the Book" refers to Christians and Jews.  According to this verse, they are to be violently subjugated, with the sole justification being their religious status.  Verse 9:33 tells Muslims that Allah has charted them to make Islam "superior over all religions." This chapter was one of the final "revelations" from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad's companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in the next 100 years.  Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths. 

Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah 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; how they are turned away!" 

Quran (9:38-39) - "O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place."  

This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.  Some call them "moderate" muslims, which is like "moderate nazis"
It is the ideology.  

Quran (9:41) - "Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew."  See also the verse that follows (9:42) - "If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them"  
This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians). 

Quran (9:73) - "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination."  

Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that unbelievers are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter.  It also explains why today's devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

Quran (9:88) - "But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper." 

Quran (9:111) - "Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme."  How does the Quran define a true believer?

Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

Quran (17:16) - "And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction."  Note that the crime is moral transgression, and the punishment is "utter destruction."  (Before ordering the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden first issued Americans an invitation to Islam).  

Quran (18:65-81) - This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion.  The story (which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source) tells of Moses encountering a man with "special knowledge" who does things which don't seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation.  One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74).  However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would "grieve" his parents by "disobedience and ingratitude."  He was killed so that Allah could provide them a 'better' son.  (Note: This is one reason why honor killing is sanctioned by Sharia.  Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al-Saliq) says that punishment for murder is not applicable when a parent or grandparent kills their offspring (o.1.1-2).)

Quran (21:44) - "We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?" 

Quran (25:52) - "Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness..."   "Strive against" is Jihad - obviously not in the personal context.  It's also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

Quran (33:60-62) - "If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while.  Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter."   This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered "merciless" and "horrible murder" in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to "fight in the way of Allah" (3:167) and hence don't act as Muslims should), those with "diseased hearts" (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and "alarmists" or "agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad's biographers.  It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today's terrorists do.  If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah's eternal word to Muslim generations.

Quran (47:3-4) - "Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)... If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost."  

Those who reject Allah are to be killed in Jihad.  The wounded are to be held captive for ransom.  The only reason Allah doesn't do the killing himself is to to test the faithfulness of Muslims.  Those who kill pass the test. 

Quran (47:35) - "Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: "have the upper hand") for Allah is with you,"    

Quran (48:17) - "There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom."  

Quran (48:29) - "Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves"  

Quran (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way"  Religion of Peace, indeed! The verse explicitly refers to "battle array" meaning that it is speaking of physical conflict.  This is followed by (61:9): "He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist."  (See next verse, below).  Infidels who resist Islamic rule are to be fought.

Quran (61:10-12) - "O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn - Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success."  This verse refers to physical battle in order to make Islam victorious over other religions (see above).  It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

Quran (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end." 

 The root word of "Jihad" is used again here.  The context is holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include "hypocrites" - those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

I wonder about the role of women in the Koran. Most of the mslim women that I have met are meek and quiet. Are they required to kill? Should I assume that they secretly hate me and want to kill me?

I ask this in all sincerety, to start a discussion.

This case more bizzare day by day.

Lawyer: Woman talking to police, kidnapping wasn't hoax


Attorney Doug Rappaport said the abduction of his client, Denise Huskins, was not staged as police have suggested.

Huskins met with Vallejo Police detectives for several hours Thursday "with the hope of clearing her name because she is absolutely, unequivocally, 100 percent, positively a victim," Rappaport said. "This is no hoax."

This has more qualifiers than a world cup group stage.

The shortest sentence is always the best. Take out "absolutely, unequivocally, 100 percent, positively" and we have a strong straight to the point sentence ""she is a victim," the need to over qualify his statement to persuade, weakens it ?

If he believes in what she has said happened then, then above "she is a victim is all that is needed ?

Wow! It seems she would want the coverage for her daughter, regardless!? Maybe she isn't buying WH's story either?

What a freak show these people have turned the search for this poor girl into! Is there a transcript of the rest of this interview?

It is getting to the stage where not every terrorist is a muslim, every muslim is a terrorist based on the edicts of their religion.

Most religions advocate peace, goodwill, charity and forgiveness in varying degrees.
They use words to persuade and also performing good deeds to convert non believers,
Those who leave the faith face no real physical penalty, only the loss of access to heaven (depending on religion)

Islam uses force to convert non believers, the only words a non believer will hear is convert or die.
There is no peaceful persuasion nor acceptance that the person does not wish to embrace islam.
If you try and leave islam you die.
The only way that is guaranteed access to paradise is as a martyr or a woman dying in childbirth.
No other way will guarantee it so doing good deeds, living a good life, even just believing in god will not get you in.
By its own rules you have to kill unbelievers and apostates as a martyr to get in.
You have to die in childbirth to get in.
It is now the case that women can no longer have caesarians, they have to give birth naturally even if it mans the mother, the child or both dying.
This again places women below that of animals. ( as an aside do female martyrs get 72 virgins?)

Daesh wants to live back in the time when mohhamed was around and they were pretty much the top civilisation.
They are stuck and have never progressed mentally past that era.

it strikes me as hypocritical that they slam the west, call The USA the great satan, and want us, israel and pretty much everyone in the world erased yet as soon as there is a disaster they want aid from us.
I never hear about islamic countries rendring aid to another muslim country.

Their own book tells them it is ok to lie to non believers, it is ok, nay, demanded they kill unbelievers,
How can you reason with someone who wants you dead, is required by their god to kill you and is happy to die in the process of killing you or having killed you because they will go to heavan.

I think there will come a stage when every muslim will be kicked out of the west and sent to a muslim country where they can live the life they want how they want whilst the rest of the world can happily move on with democracy, peace and knowledge that their neighbor isn't going to kill them because they don't believe in allah, are jewish, are gay, are female or any other number of reasons.

As an aside obama made mention of the many muslims building the fabric of the nation.
Many assume he refers to America, what if he isn't a natural born American and instead refers to the true nation of his birth?

I also wonder what is going to come out once obama leaves office and what laws will be brought in to stop it ever happening again?

Is this a serious question? In America you look at a Muslim women and think they want to secretly kill you?

We are in a lot of trouble.

Tania the Catholic Church did the same thing, inquisition. Auto da fe. Not all Muslims are truly following the Koran the way a lot of self proclaimed Catholics don't follow every word of the gospel.

Therein lies the problem.

The two religions are totally different and cannot be compared.

Catholicism and any christian religion uses word and deed to convert,, by it's nature christianity is a religion of peace.
Catholicism prohibits suicide, it prohibts murder, to commit either mans condemning to hell.

Islam advocates war, forceful conversion with convert or die, suicide if in the cause of jihad makes the suicide a martyr and thus guaranteed paradise.

Tes there are muslims who do not go around shouting for stoning and sharia law, at least not in public.
To do so in public would draw attention to them and their religion.
They have learned that force will be met with force and they cannot win.
Take germany as an example, it lost 2 world wars where it tried to take over europe using force,
Now they have pretty much achieved the same aim using politics.
Islam is the same, complain make small demands that will invariably be granted and keep doing it until islam becomes the dominant religion and thus government.
Today no peppa pig on tv, tommorow changing all the christian festivals to generic holidays, the day after force dietry restrictions such as halal and so on.

Once a law is enacted or something becomes the accepted norm, it is difficult if not impossible to change it back.

You say not all true muslims are following the koran.
They are, they have to or face aposty.
It is not just a religion, it is a government, a life.
If push came to shove i will guarantee every muslim will do what they are commanded to in the koran, they have no choice.

the muslims they call radicalised are not radicalised, they are following islam the way it is commanded they do so in the koran.

For us to delude ourselves that there are moderate muslims is wrong.
A muslim has to follow the koran and its teachings, this not only includes prayers and dress and diet, it also includes dealing with crimes, apostates, infidels, all the sensitive stuff they want to minimise and which our governments are trying to ignore.

Chritianity doesn't tell you to go and kill the infidels unless of course you start with the old testement in which case good luck with living life according to the old testement as it is full of fun contradictions ( much the same as the new testement.

A catholic will say let's talk about god and how he loves you even when you do something wrong, he is a forgiving god.

A muslim will say believe in my allah or else i will kill you. if you do wrong we will torture you or kill you in interesting ways. Eve4n if you do believe in allah here is no guarantee of paradise unless you die a martyr or giving birth.>
By the way, women will have no rights, they will be used solely to provide care for their family and have babies.
Females have no worth.
if you are a muslim of different sect or tribe we will kill you.

You have seen what daesh is doing, the torture the murders, the rapes, the slavery.
This is all included in the koran.
it sadly is the honest brutal face of islam.
It is the islam western governments want you to believe is not the norm.
The west is in denial, e saw what happened in nazi germany when the world denied the truth, this is history repeating itself.

As a christian you would be permitted to live life as you wish, if you lived in any of the lands occupied by daesh or their fellow movements, you would either be dead, a sex slave or if you were lucky and converted maybe wife #whatever completely covered, uneducated, limited to the house and treated as a 3rd class citizen simply because of your gender.

Islam is a warrior religion, it does not promote peace or dialogue, there is only one way, their way or death

A couple thoughts in regard to the Catholic comparison: in the case of the Catholics, the leaders were in defiance of what their own religion taught when they engaged in violence and oppression, while Islam embraces these things as a legitimate means to an end. Secondly, in neither case do the "nice" followers of the religion hold any power to save the innocent or change the course of the powers that be.
Jenny, I'm sure they do not secretly hate you or wish to kill you. But they would not stand up for you or save you, either.
My grandfather came to this country after his first family was slaughtered in the Armenian holocaust by Muslims while he was away. The Armenian people have withstood the pressure to bow to Islam for centuries and they have suffered terribly for it.

The problem that you seem to have along with ISIS and the other crazies, not saying you are one of the crazies, is understanding that the Quran is linear, what I mean by that is parts are for those people and that time, not for latter use. Here is an example of the progression of Islamic action/thought.

This is a message from Muhammad ibn Abdullah, as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity, near and far, we are with them.

Verily I, the servants, the helpers, and my followers defend them, because Christians are my citizens; and by Allah! I hold out against anything that displeases them.

No compulsion is to be on them. Neither are their judges to be removed from their jobs nor their monks from their monasteries. No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the Muslims' houses.

Should anyone take any of these, he would spoil God's covenant and disobey His Prophet. Verily, they are my allies and have my secure charter against all that they hate.

No one is to force them to travel or to oblige them to fight. The Muslims are to fight for them. If a female Christian is married to a Muslim, it is not to take place without her approval. She is not to be prevented from visiting her church to pray. Their churches are to be respected. They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants.

No one of the nation (Muslims) is to disobey the covenant till the Last Day (end of the world).

("Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Monks of Mount Sinai", CE 628)

So it is linear...that is, contextual to a certain period of time?

Islam is a military force, combined with religion. Its followers have always understood that it is "marching orders", century after century.

The ideology is conquest by coercion, not peaceful admonitions.

They understand its interpretation.

History understands its interpretation.

Only when a Muslim tells us that they are a "religion of peace" do we see the absurdity of the statement.

It is one that should not need to be said, but because it does, it is "eery."


PS: Gays protesting over cake, should consider what happens to them in Muslim nations.
