About Daniel Shayesteh

Dr Daniel was born into a Muslim family in Northern Iran. He became a radical Muslim leader and teacher of Islam in the militant Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini. However, after falling out of favor with Khomeini’s political group, he escaped to Turkey where there began an amazing journey to faith in Jesus Christ.

Daniel's mission is to help others understand and lovingly respond to those who do not know Christ. He is also deeply concerned for the future of Western societies, their loss of confidence in Judeo-Christian values, and their persistent naivete about the implications of the world-wide Islamic revival.

Is Moderate Islam a Solution?

In the last days of his mission on earth, Muhammad left an unchangeable legacy for his followers to reject, humiliate and even kill moderate Muslims in addition to the annihilation of non-Muslims. Chapter 9 of the Quran is the last revelation that instructs the faithful followers of Muhammad on how to triumph over moderate Muslims, their disbelieving relatives and strangers.  Allah perfected his revelation to Muhammad by revealing the verses of this chapter, thus bringing the Quran to its completion. This chapter promotes the assumption that if there was moderation prior to this text, it can no longer apply.  It is Allah and Muhammad’s will that Muslims erase every kind of moderation among themselves and fight until a time when there is no more disbelief in the world and all submit to the religion of Allah.

Regarding the war against moderate Muslims, the Quran says:
O you who believe [Muslims]! Take not for protectors (guardians) your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong (Q.9:23).
We know that the word infidel in this verse refers to disbelieving Muslims, not literal relatives, as the same chapter later on gives instructions about disbelieving relatives:
You who believe [Muslims], kill any disbeliever who are close to you (relatives and neighbors) so that they may find out how harsh you are.  Allah is with those who are pious (Q.9:123).
Verse 23 targets those Muslims who do not take their faith seriously, do not pray or fast, or take part in jihad, or in other Islamic rituals and events. They must be fought. Moderation in Islam was unbearable for Muhammad. He said:
I was about to order for collecting firewood and then order someone to pronounce the Adhan [call] for the prayer and then order someone to lead the people in prayer and then I would go from behind and burn the houses of men who did not present themselves for the prayer (Bukhari V.9, Book 89, 330).
This hadith implies that moderate Muslims must be rejected, humiliated and burned by pious (harsh) Muslims. In verse 23, Allah and Muhammad order even the immature children of the moderate Muslims, who need protectors or guardians, to rebel against their fathers’ and brothers’ guardianship and disregard it. In other words, children are called to fight against their moderate parents and siblings in moderate Muslim families.

Many young boys who have been arrested for plotting terrorism in the western countries have been the children of moderate Muslims. One factor that has contributed to this is that the Quran, the only holy book for both moderate and radical Muslims, which is believed to be the most superior book in the world and wherever they go they proudly carry it with them. And as long as the Quran and Islam are with them, there will be much opportunity for radicalism to arise.

The kingdom of the Shah, the deceased ruler of Iran, was the height of freedom in the whole period since the start of Islam's occupation of the country.  He lost to radicalism after four decades of resistance in 1979, through the radical son of moderate Muslims, the Ayatollah Khomeini.

In the time of war between Iran and Iraq, boys, as young as 12 years old, were encouraged to disregard the guardianship of their moderate parents to take part in the war against the so-called ‘national’ and ‘international infidels’. Some of these young children lost their lives in this war and fulfilled the call of Ayatollah Khomeini for jihad and martyrdom without the consent of their parents.

Eight decades ago, Ataturk, the leader of Turkey, established a system to push the radicalism of Islam back. He promoted marshal law so that moderates could defeat radicalism. In respect to this law, a coup d’├ętat took place in 1960 which resulted in the hanging of the ruling Prime Minister, Menderes, who aimed to regulate life in Turkey by the Shari’a, the law of Islam. Yet even the giant moderate army in Turkey has been unable to democratize Turkey in its real sense as the current Prime Minister, Tayyip Erdogan, a committed Muslim, has successfully pushed back moderation in order to establish radical Islam. On September 17, 2010, in a memorial speech for deceased Prime Minister Menderes, Erdogan declared that Menderes and his friends were killed for Allah. He recently got the approval of his nation with 58 percent vote in order to amend the judiciary that protects Turkey’s secularism. Even Obama, the US President, congratulated him for this progress in the name of democracy, without being concerned that he has been paving the way for further Islamization of Turkey.

Now, despite all this clear evidence,  Western leaders, intellectuals and media not only trust moderate Islam, but the radicals too, as long as they claim that they are moderate! In the name of moderation, Muslims are now able to block the roads in Paris illegally in order to hold their prayers in groups, to build a mosque at Grand Zero, and to fight against those who aim to educate people about Islam.

If Islamic countries have been unable to establish democratic nations with their own moderate Islam, how will the West be able to establish such an Islamic community within itself? Islam has already regulated all aspects of life for all present and future Muslims. No Muslim has the right to cross the boundaries of Islam and adapt himself to other values; if he does, he will come face to face with family and community punishments.

Islam, either moderate or radical, is a barrier to true freedom.  How superior to know and abide by the values of Christ, which uphold freedom and love.  It is the beauty of such values that we must share, in word and deed, with Muslims.
Nor do they [the followers of Christ] light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all ...  Matthew 5:15 (NIV)

Allah the Opportunist and the Veiling of Women

The veil in Islam is described as protecting women’s modesty, so that they do not tempt men or bring dishonor to their families. Is this what it means in practice?

For about 14 years, from the birth of Islam in Mecca until the rise of Islam as an authoritarian religion in Medina, Muslim women were walking uncovered and Allah did not worry about their modesty or their families’ honor. He only stepped in after 14 years, when Muhammad and his pious followers attacked Jews and Pagans, and slaughtered their men, but spared their wives and girls for themselves as wives and slaves. Before Muhammad came, the Jews of Medina were 75% of its population. Some Jewish men were forced to flee Arabia but the others were all killed. Imagine the number of Jewish women and girls that were left behind for Muhammad and his followers! Added to this were the many pagan girls and women whose tribes did not want to follow Islam and lost their men fighting the Muslims. The resulting abundance of women for an inexperienced leader, Muhammad, and his followers created great disarray. Wherever he went or invaded he made himself overridingly busy with women. He even slept with a 17 years old Jewish woman called Safiyah in the same night after her husband was beheaded in front of her own eyes. Her father and brothers had also been killed by Muhammad’s order in another massacre a few months before this (Muhammad’s biography by Ibn Hisham, p.755ff; Ibn Sa’d, p.77f).

Not only non-Muslim women and girls were victims of the pious followers of Allah: Muslim women were too. We read in chapter 33 of the Quran of how Muhammad fell in love with his own daughter-in-law, Zeynab (the wife of his own adopted son), and eventually got her to become his own wife. Antoher time, he called a Muslim girl to his bed, slept with her at night, did not like her body so sent her back to her home the following morning. As a result, he gave the right to every Muslim man to check the private parts of a Muslim girl first before marrying her. As an ex-Muslim, I know how disgusted Muslim girls are by this practice, but in the meantime pious Muslims still honor this teaching.

Such abuses were all fine according to Allah and did not bother his so-called philosophy of modesty, as long as everything was according to the desires of his beloved prophet, Muhammad. Since Allah was being created in Muhammad’s own image, this god was ready to do everything for Muhammad’s pleasure. He revealed to Muslims in the same chapter 33 that Muhammad could not be called a father to Muslims but his wives were like mothers to them. In other words, Muslims were forbidden to take any of Muhammad’s abandoned wives as wives for themselves, but Muhammad had right to take any of their wives if he desired. This was the kind of example Muhammad set for his followers; he had more rights than other. Others did not have the same rights toward Muhammad as Muhammad had to them. Despite all this, Allah still calls him the best model in the Quran: In Allah’s messenger, you have a fine model… (Q33:21).

Every Muslim leader or scholar believes that Allah’s presence was more active in the time and life of Muhammad than for any other leader before or since. Allah never left Muhammad alone: he was present in everything he did in order to present him as a good role model to his surroundings. What was done to women by Muhammad was all done in the presence of Allah and by his permission. It was in Muhammad’s time that Allah revealed his so-called eternal and practicable words in the Quran, saying that Muhammad’s wives were like mothers to Muslims. Despite the presence of Allah, and his eternal Quran and Muhammad being the best role model, one of Allah’s pious followers had an affair with Muhammad’s most beloved wife, Aisha, who was called a mother to him. In other words, the Islamic cover for protecting the modesty of women did not work despite the active presence of Allah and his using his best man Muhammad. Why? Because Muhammad himself was not able to live according to the law of covering women: so he legitimized that boys had right to check the bodies of girls with whom they wanted to get married, exposing the modesty of women to threat again. Muhammad had always an exemption so that men could break the law. Now, Muslims want to keep the modesty of their women via covering them up. What nonsense!

Some of Muhammad’s own followers, who were exhausted and unable to correct Muhammad, asked him to force ladies to stay at home (Q33:33) or to cover themselves fully if they went out. They were not able to restrain Muhammad and therefore showed the edges of their swords to the already depressed women. He did not listen to them immediately, but after things got really unbearable, his Allah stepped in and decided to protect women’s honor and therefore decreed veiling. Interestingly, Allah revealed his decree in the same chapter where he allowed Muhammad to have his daughter-in-law as his wife, or any other women he desired to have, as recorded in chapter 33:

O Prophet! Speak to your wives and to your daughters, and to the wives of the faithful, that they let their veils fall low.  Thus they will not be known more easily, and they will not be affronted (Q33:59).

In the verses 60-62 of the same chapter, Allah says this is his way, and anyone (especially non-Muslims) who comes against this must be slaughtered.

Can you imagine that despite such a harsh decree there is a way provided for Allah’s pious followers to satisfy their fleshly desires at the cost of women’s modesty?

We learn from the Qur’an itself that women are not compelled to guard their private parts from their fathers, father-in-laws, their own sons or stepsons, brothers, nephews, slaves or even their sterilized male attendants.  They also can show their private parts to children who have not yet shown any interest in women’s nakedness:

And speak to the believing women that they refrain their eyes, and observe continence; and that they display not their [private parts and] ornaments, except those which are external; and that they throw their veils over their bosoms, and display not their ornaments, except to their husbands or their fathers, or their husbands’ fathers, or their sons, or their husbands’ sons, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male domestics who have no natural force, or to children who note not women’s nakedness. And let them not strike their feet together, so as to discover their hidden ornaments.  And be ye all turned to God, O ye Believers! that it may be well with you (Q24:31).

This Arabic verse of the Qur’an uses the word “foroujahonna” which clearly implies the private and sexual parts of women.  The word “foroujahonna”, which is missing in translation, comes before the word “ornaments”.  Rather than translating the exact meaning of the Arabic word in this specific passage of the Quran, the majority of translations use much milder words. In English, words such as ‘private parts’ or ‘continence’ are used. The Noble Quran’s English translation includes the “private parts”, but places them inside brackets, confusing readers so that they will not understand that this could be a part of the Quran itself.  Moreover the word “farj” (the singular of the term “foroujahanna”) is used in reference to Mary, Jesus’ mother, in Q66:12, referring to her private parts:  the angel Jibril (Gabriel) is said to have breathed into Mary’s vulva when allegedly causing Jesus to be conceived.

What is this bizarre covering which Muhammad and the god of his image, Allah, have created for people? What are these two extremes: On one hand, Allah forces women to cover themselves in order to protect themselves from tempting men, but on the other hand, he exposes their nakedness to their male relatives? Isn’t this mocking women? Isn’t this opportunist? Isn’t this saying that even a veil is not able to protect women’s modesty?

How will people be able to escape sexual immorality if Allah’s prophet was not able to stay away of it, or if the Qur’an teaches women to neglect protecting their private parts from most male relatives and others close to them? Consider a city or village whose population is only made up of relatives and others who are mentioned in the above verse. If women in the streets of that city or village were encouraged to follow the teaching of the Qur’an, how would she be looked upon? What kind of moral message would the children of the families from that village or city take out to the rest of the world?  Wouldn’t the boys of that village feel justified in raping their family members or going to rape the women and girls of other villages?

All the evidence points to the fact that Muhammad was not ready in his heart to protect women’s modesty. If his heart was ready, he would not have needed a veil to protect women’s honor; his heart was not ready and for this reason he was not able to find a real tool for combating the urge to immorality. Muhammad, therefore, has not left a genuine legacy for Muslims to protect the modesty of their women through the veil.

Islamic history provides great testimony of veil’s uselessness. So many ladies have been stoned and hanged over 14 centuries of Islamic history because Muhammad’s decrees were impractical. Pious Muslims ignore this fact and are hesitant in putting an end to Muhammad’s mistakes. Instead they march ahead to establish their Islam everywhere and bring dishonor to all women in the world with their veil.

Do Not Let Pious Muslims Dictate What We Do

Muslims in Western countries are benefiting from all aspects of democracy more than the followers of any other religion.  This is evident in their push for westerners to live in an Islamic way. How would it be if the tables were turned and non-Muslims fell under the rule of Islam? Would Muslims treat non-Muslims as equal to themselves?

Non-Muslims will never achieve equal rights with Muslims a country ruled by Islamic law. The Quran asks Muslim rulers to humiliate the non-Muslims who are under their rule (Q.9:29). The following set of principles is called the Pact of Umar.  They reveal the Islamic legal structures for to dealing with the so-called ‘People of the Book’ — such as Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians — living among communities ruled by Islamic law. The Pact is attributed to Umar ibn al-Khattab, the second successor to and father-in-law of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam:
  1. Christians and Jews shall not build, in their cities or in Muslims’ neighborhoods, new monasteries, churches, convents, or monks’ cells, nor shall they repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.
  2. Christians and Jews shall keep their gates wide open for passersby and travelers. They shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass their way for three days.
  3. Christians and Jews shall not give shelter in their churches or in their dwellings to any spy, nor hide him from the Muslims.
  4. Christians and Jews shall not teach the Koran to their children.
  5. Christians and Jews shall not manifest their religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. They shall not prevent any of their kin from entering Islam if they wish it.
  6. Christians and Jews shall show respect toward the Muslims, and they shall rise from their seats when Muslims wish to sit.
  7. Christians and Jews shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments.
  8. Christians and Jews shall not mount on saddles, nor shall they gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on their persons.
  9. Christians and Jews shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on their seals.
  10. Christians and Jews shall not sell fermented drinks.
  11. Christians and Jews shall clip the fronts of their heads. [An Arab sign of being conquered and having your life spared.]
  12. Christians and Jews shall always dress in the same way wherever they may be, and they shall bind the zunar [a distinct kind of belt] round their waists.
  13. Christians and Jews shall not display their crosses or their books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. They shall use only clappers [and not bells] in their churches very softly. They shall not raise their voices when following their dead.  They shall not take slaves who have been allotted to Muslims.
  14. Christians and Jews shall not build houses higher than the houses of the Muslims.
  15. Whoever strikes a Muslim with deliberate intent shall forfeit the protection of this pact.
(Source: Al-Turtushi, Siraj al-Muluk, pages 229-230, and http://www.conservapedia.com/Pact_of_Umar.)

Imagine what has been happening to non-Muslims in Islamic countries throughout the 1400 years of Islamic history since the rise of Islam! They have faced unceasing persecutions of every kind, and even genocidal attacks whenever a member of a non-Christian community was unable to follow the above instructions, ignored or rebelled against them.

It is too soon for committed Muslims to reveal the contents of the above Pact in the West. This is what they did in their dominated lands. At first, they did not rush to establish the above legal structure in a non-Muslim country when they were the minority. They started with laws that concerned their own personal or community life. They began by establishing:

  • The Islamic practice of polygamy in which a man may have four legal wives, if he wishes.
  • Islamic family law which gives men authority to rule over their wives and children, and if necessary to banish them.
  • The Islamic family court, so that Muslim men are not interrogated for their bad behavior against their wives and children in a non-Islamic court. (Islamic law explicitly forbids questioning a man about such abuses.)
  • The cry of Adhan, the call from the minarets of mosques for gathering and group prayers.
The list goes on …

After they established themselves with the above in their ghettos and grew in strength, they then put pressure on officials to limit non-Muslims from entering or running activities in the ghettos.  Once successfully achieved, they continued to extend the exercise of their power in other areas also.

A few years ago, we all witnessed through the media how Muslim mobs asked police officers in France not to enter their zones when they were rioting and burning in many places. In Birmingham, England, police officers stopped two Christian evangelists, who were spreading the message of Christ, informing them that Birmingham was a Muslim area and that, consequently, they were not allowed to speak about Christianity there. (Source: http://theapostolicreport.wordpress.com/category/evangelism/).

One of the Muslim leaders in England was quoted as saying: “we will not submit to any man-made law, any government, or any Prime Minister — Bush or Brown — or Jacqui Smith. We submit to Allah.”  (Source: http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=29455). 

Gordon Brown was the only Prime Minister among all Prime Ministers in England who uniquely spoke in favor of Islam and allowed the establishment of Islamic Courts in England in order to please Muslims. Yet see how this Muslim leader disregards even Gordon Brown’s servant-hood to Islam, simply because Brown was still following a law shaped by Judeo-Christian values.
Shahid Malik, a Muslim MP, is another prime example of one who is actively seeking the establishment of Islamic law in the UK through an undermining of democracy. As a Labour MP for Dewsbury and a Justice Minister, he addressed Muslims in a Muslim gathering, saying that Muslims’ community in England had only one Muslim MP in the House of Lords in 1997, in 2001 they had two Muslim MPs and in 2005 they had four Muslim MPs. He continued to say that Muslims were aiming to have ten Muslim MPs in 2009, fourteen MPs in 2014, twenty MPs shortly after that, and eventually a Muslim UK Prime Minister.

(Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZM2SA4QOXw).

The restrictions on Christians and the problem of anti-Semitism have already become a concern, with just a handful of Muslim representatives in the UK parliament. What should be expected when they achieve an Islamic Prime Minister? The result will be the above-mentioned Pact of Omar and Quran’s verses of humiliation of non-Muslims. Not only have the Labor Party leaders in England been closing their eyes to the plans of committed Muslims, but they have also been paving the way for committed Muslims to establish themselves in a stronger and stronger position at the expense of democratic values.

Pious Muslims have an agenda that directly jeopardizes the Judeo-Christian values of the West.  We must exercise wisdom and not be fooled by the pseudo-democratic tactics of these pious followers of the Islamic way.

When We Are Less Wise Than Pious Muslims!

It is so dangerous when we become busy with our present mission and do not see what the future holds for us according to the intentions of our enemies, whose tasks are to destroy and devour.  When we become too preoccupied with superficial things, and stay unaware of or indifferent to our enemies' plans, then the future we portray in our minds or to our nations will remain a fantasy. 

Relativism is running our media and academia today and they, therefore, do not see it as necessary to worry about enemies, because enemies and friends are alike. But this will not last much longer.  When pious Muslims get into power they will send their narrators to the media, academic world, and to everyone everywhere in order to shout messages from the blood-stained pages of the Quran, and say that relativism is over because Islam is now in power. This is what pious Muslims have been doing for generations throughout history. After they moved to new areas where they were not yet in power, they deceivingly said ‘your god and our god is the same’ or ‘your beliefs and ours are the same’. Ignorant natives believed them and the pressure of this false belief caused them to ignore their own beliefs and cultural values, and eventually surrender to Islam. Pious Muslims are very talented in confusing people and in taking advantage of that confusion. Their talents are obviously at play in the West. For instance, if pious Muslims were pro-democracy why do they not tolerate the critics of Islam and instead make every effort to sideline them? How would radicalization grow in the West if these pious Muslims taught tolerance and rejected hatred? How is it that Islamic terrorism has become an increasing concern in the West nearly a decade after September 11, despite the presence of so-called 'moderate' pious Muslims? 

Not only are pious Muslims not fighting against terrorism, but they themselves are trying to tie the hands and legs of our policy makers in the West to stay indifferent to terrorism. Who has caused our politicians, media and educators to avoid using terms such as "Islamism," "Islamic fundamentalism," "Islamic radicalism," or “Jihadists”? Aren’t they pious Muslims? Pious Muslims are convincing our officials that these terms have nothing to do with Islam and they must not be used in public. These Muslims know that the majority of our politicians, media and leaders do not wish to resist terrorism personally for fear of risking their position or greater support, all under the pressure of political correctness. For this reason, these Muslims are trying to convince leaders to give up the fight in public too, so that terrorists can gain better opportunities or more energy for jihad. On the other hand, if pious Muslims are successful in removing the blame of terrorism on Islam, then onto whom will the blame of terrorism fall? Clearly, it will be on America and/or the West! This is why the pious Muslims have already voiced that the Fort Hood shooting, the Times Square bomb plot and England’s train disaster were all caused by the West’s own citizens, having nothing to do with Islam or their background or country of origin. Isn’t this clever? It is of great concern that these minority Muslims have been able to force and manipulate our politicians, university leaders and others to issue laws in favor of Islam, while hindering us from discovering the real threat to the values of our communities and countries.

It seems that many of our politicians and leaders are hypnotized and unable to grasp the fact that crime and terrorism cannot be analyzed without understanding a people’s way of life, beliefs and the methodical terms which are established to reflect the meaning of their beliefs. How can we understand the meaning of Hitler’s, Stalin’s, or Ayatollah Khomeini’s words and actions without analyzing the beliefs, revolutionary movements, and strategic terms attached to their movements and beliefs? Can we deny the relevance of the link between their ideologies and their actions, when they themselves have confirmed that their motivation is their own beliefs? My goodness! Some of our politicians, editors and journalists, who call themselves modern and are intellectually brilliant people, act as insensible entities when it comes to their political and social responsibilities. They deliberately try to misunderstand, avoid, or censor  facts in order to direct people’s minds elsewhere. What a great achievement these pious Muslims have made! They are good servants to their prophet, Muhammad, who taught his followers to dominate their opposition and critics in any possible way, and eventually slaughter them. It is truly shocking to see evidence of this at the center of the West, the heartland of freedom.

Terms like “Islamism,” “Islamists,” “Jihadists,”  and the like were not devised by the West. Such terms have always been associated with pious Muslims wherever they have been active. For centuries, nominal Muslims and non-Muslim natives have been using such terms in order to describe pious Muslims.  Even pious Muslims themselves identified themselves proudly with these terms. One of the Iranian chief revolutionary army members called jihad 'Holy Terrorism', a terrorism ordained by Allah (Q. 8:59). Phrases like these describe the identities of pious Muslims. We will not be able to know them and have an accurate picture of them unless we analyze their actions in the light of such terms. So many pious Muslims are pro-terrorism because Islam asks them to be so.

It is blasphemy for pious Muslims to have peace with non-Muslims unless it is for the purpose of deception. They introduce themselves as moderates under the guise of democracy in order to gain momentum for establishing and strengthening themselves, for their eventual domination. In the West, they are exactly following the footsteps of their prophet, Muhammad. After fleeing from Mecca to Medina as a refugee, Muhammad portrayed himself as a peaceful man and prophet of a god.  The democratic atmosphere of Medina provided a safe haven for him and any one else to believe in and say anything they wished. He did not experience any opposition for calling himself a prophet. He only met with opposition when he later got involved in looting caravans. His unethical actions shocked the inhabitants of Medina as a peaceful prophet of a peaceful religion sanctioned the invasion of caravans, looting others and terrorizing those who criticized him for his actions. Medina had never before heard that looting and terrorizing could be sanctioned by Allah, the contemporary pagan’s chief god. Some highly respected natives, who cared for their communities and worried about the insecurity Muhammad was creating in their homeland, criticized him of his strange teaching and actions. In response, he sent his pious followers to assassinate them secretly. We can find in Muhammad’s own biography, The Life of Muhammad, how a peaceful Muhammad changed into someone who ceased to tolerate his critics and opposition after he further established his roots. An elderly man named Abu Afak expressed his dissatisfaction through a poem, calling his patron tribe to withdraw from being under the leadership of the prophet of Islam and follow someone who cared for the communities in Medina. Muhammad, unable to bear Abu Afak's criticism, sent his devoted followers at night to stab him to death in his sleep. This hostile attitude towards an elderly man outraged the inhabitants of Medina, who valued the presence of elderly people highly. As a result, a woman named Asma requested retaliation, as the law of the land necessitated. Muhammad again sent his messengers at night and they slaughtered her in front of her young children (The Life of Muhammad, by Ibn Ishaq, PP. 675-676).

Western countries are like Medina for pious Muslims. In their migration to the West, they follow the exact footsteps of Muhammad. The best contemporary example is the Muslim Brotherhood. The members of the Muslim Brotherhood were rejected and persecuted in Egypt because of their strong stand for Islam. Some of them were able to escape and take refuge in Europe and America. We can see now how the members of the Muslim Brotherhood are dealing with Europeans and Americans who sheltered them. They have been terrorizing western values, ways of life and people. They have pushed for:

1.    Shari’a courts, disregarding the sovereignty of western laws.
2.    Separate swimming pools and school rules, imposing their way of life in the West.
3.    Removing pork menus from cafeteria menus, pushing westerners to live in an       
       Islamic way.
4.    Special treatment in work areas, disrespecting and disregarding Judeo-Christian 
       Work Ethic.
5.    Laws excluding Muslim taxi drivers from carrying those who are drunk,  
       carrying alcohol or dogs.

Once, the members of the Muslim Brotherhood were homeless and desperate for a country to give a shelter to them, but now they are aiming to destroy the life of the country that took pity on them and sheltered them kindly.  Why? Because deception is their religion and spiritual identity.

We must exercise more wisdom against the clever tactics of pious Muslims. Why should we allow our countries to be easy prey for those who are striving for the destruction of our freedom? Why shouldn’t we say “no” to them and to those who stand behind these dictatorial gurus?

Let us not keep quiet and expose ourselves to a noxious and tormenting future. Let us wake up, speak out and live for freedom.

The Name of Israel Will Be Remembered No More!?

I never cease to be amazed at how the enemies of Israel have been trying to destroy her for thousands of years, aiming to annihilate her, so that no record of her name, Biblical values and God would remain in history.  Yet amazingly she still survives.  As an ex-fundamentalist Muslim, reading the following passage for the first time, I was astonished by what the Psalmist wrote:
They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, so that the name Israel may be remembered no more.” For with one heart they have plotted together; they have made a covenant against You-- the tents of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarites; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the people of Tyre; and Assyria has joined with them; they have helped the sons of Lot (Psalm 83:4-8).
Who are these nations who were drawn into such unity against Israel? To my amazement, they are the forefathers of the Saudi Arabians, Palestinians, Jordanians and non-Aryan Iraqis, who were living in the area centuries before the rise of Islam.

Eventually, Islam revealed itself as the best servant of hostility and established itself as the political religion of these nations, employing all available means to destroy Israel and remove her name from the face of the earth. It is quite remarkable that despite millennia of opposition to Israel, she is still a nation, has a land to govern with the rule of law, and will be around until the end of history.

Why? What is the secret behind the survival of Israel?

The answer is in the Bible. God chose Israel and set her aside for Himself in order to fulfill His eternal plan for the nations through her. Throughout history, God has proven that Israel’s protection, judgment, punishment, blessing and deliverance all were, are and will be according to God’s plan as laid out in the Bible. Time and time again, nations united against Israel, but God crushed them because their confederacies were against God’s plan. They were ignorant and did not know that they would not be able to destroy the ones whom God has decided to preserve for Himself, even if the forces of the earth unite against them.

What a lesson this is for the Church of God! We see and experience how the enemies of today’s Church unify to destroy the body of Christ, yet they are unaware that they are face to face with the Most High God. This is what must encourage the children of God and unite them to take refuge in God, whose almighty love has preserved the Church for Himself.

The enemies of the God of Israel failed to understand the true reason for the failure of their schemes. This is the same intelligence our contemporary world lacks. The Islamic world thinks that the so-called Great Satan, America and the West, is behind Israel and Christianity.  So, too, do the Leftists, who think that it is Capitalism that benefits from the survival of Israel and Christianity, and this is supposed to explain attempts to preserve them. Those who hold such views do not consider the irrationality of their beliefs, in light of the fact that neither America nor Capitalism were present throughout the millennia to protect the name of Israel or stand behind God’s Church.

Israel is the Israel of God, whether the world likes this or not. God wants the world to respect her existence. If the world respects God’s Israel, this is absolutely an act of respect for God, but if it does not, this is, in effect an act against the God of Israel. The life of Israel is hid with Christ in God in a mysterious way. If the world knew this, it would not want to hate them as it does.

Ignorance has filled the world and many are unable to understand how a tiny community, Israel, survived through thousands of years despite the hostility of many nations towards its people. Unfortunately, it is regarded as politically incorrect to desire to wake up the West to the truth of God’s plan for Israel. You may be called a racist, fascist or Nazi by pious Muslims, as well as by many leftists or humanists. Yet by no means has God rejected Israel. God has a covenant with her, and at the end He will send His deliverer to Zion to save her from her sins and enemies (Romans 11:1, 26).

The leaders of some nations have turned against Israel and exposed their countries to the wrath of God. Because of economic dependency, they are aligning their plans with the plans of cruel Islamic leaders who follow Muhammad.  They have already brought the wrath of God on themselves by fighting against the existence of Israel (Zacharia 9). The Allah of Muhammad is quite opposite to the God of Abraham and Israel. They are opposites of each other in every aspect. While the God of Israel guarantees freedom, Allah ordains war against freedom and threatens those who stand for freedom. Biblical values are in stark contrast to the authoritarian god of Islam, and it is for this reason that pious Muslims are nervous about our task of awakening the world to their plans.  They are doing everything they can in order to prevent us, for they know that the growth of freedom means the death of Islam.

Therefore, let us pray for those of our leaders who have, consciously or unconsciously, united with the enemies of Israel. Let us express our concerns to these leaders and the world; that we love our nations and countries and do not want to unite with the enemies of Israel, exposing our nations to the wrath of God. Let us pray for the enemies of Israel. so that they can see the plan of God for Israel. Let us pray for a change in Israel’s enemies, so they will respect her right as a nation and understand that their plans cannot prevail against the plan of God for Israel. Let us pray for the salvation of Jews so that they, like the Psalmist, might rely on God’s wisdom and leadership, and not on their own limited human power:
Keep not silence, O God; … Your enemies roar; and those who hate You have lifted up their head (Psalm 83:1-2).

Pious Muslim are not Allowed to Befriend Non-Muslims

On March 10, 2010, Mr. Abraham Wishnoff wrote an article against my talk in the The Citizen newspaper in Auburn/NY, calling me “ignorant, an opportunist and the promoter of hatred similar to that of Nazi Germany”.

Why did the young Mr. Wishnoff attribute such malicious labels to me, especially when he knew that I had Islamic references for each part of my talk? After the talk, I also had the privilege of talking to Mr. Wishnoff personally. As part of our conversation, he said that he had studied Islam but hadn’t seen anything concerning the degradation of women and killing infidels. He was keen to know the references and, per his request, I sent several to him. It is hard to believe that the writer of the article in The Citizen is the same young Mr. Wishnoff I met on the evening of Feb 21. He expressed a little concern for the way I was exposing Islam, but his total response expressed disappointment about Islam especially when I kindly challenged him, “How could you follow Islam without knowing Islam?”

Unfortunately, this is a problem with many young Muslims like Mr. Wishnoff. When you talk to them individually, they show courage to investigate and learn, but after they go back to their mentors they have no choice but to follow the instruction of the Quran about opposition. A person who disputes the Quran or challenges Muhammad and questions his authority or blames him for borrowing from other beliefs (Q8:6,13,31) is called hostile (v.15), deaf, dumb and worst of beasts (v.22). The penalty for such a person is that his finger tips and head must be chopped off (v.12).  The Quran also says: They who dispute the signs of Allah without authority having reached them (non-Muslims) are greatly hated by Allah and the believers. So Allah seals up every arrogant, disdainful heart (Q40:35).

Islam teaches Muslims how to prepare the way for dominance. It starts with slandering others. Pious Muslims are called to accuse others first in order to prepare the mind of their followers for invasion, terrorism and finally dominance. This is what some parents do with their children or leaders do with their followers in Islamic communities. They accuse Jews and the West in front of their own children and followers, preparing their young Muslims for martyrdom in order to go and persecute, or even kill those hated by their parents and leaders. False accusations work when people are ignorant.

Mr. Wishnoff and his mentors are very well aware that most Americans do not know Islam personally and therefore they are able to fulfill Allah’s instruction to deceive them. The Quran says: The best of deceivers is Allah (Q8:30) and Swifter to deceive is Allah (Q.10:21). Muhammad said to use your property, your persons and your tongues in striving against the polytheists (Sunan Abu-Dawud : Book 14 : Hadith 2498). Since Allah and Muhammad encouraged deception and lies, how can their call to Islam's followers lead to genuine peace and truth? 

Non-Muslims need to read the Quran and know Islam personally in order to understand Islam. No matter how well pious Muslims act in their relationship with non-Muslims, their goal is destruction and dominance. Many people in the West are deceived by Muslims’ interfaith dialogues and peace plans without knowing their motivations. Their motivation cannot be friendship and peace, for the Quran says:
  • Christians and Jews are animals and unclean (Q2:65; 5:60; 62:5; 9:28).
  • Allah’s curse be on those who call Jesus the Son of God (Q9:29).
  • Allah has sent his apostle (Muhammad) with a religion of the truth, that he may make it victorious over every other religion (Q9:33).
  • He (Allah) gave you (Muslims) their (non-Muslims’) lands, and their dwellings, and their wealth, for an heritage – even a land on which you had never set foot: for the might of Allah is equal to all things (Q33:27).
  • Prepare against the infidels (Christians and Jews) whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them (Q8:59).
  • Muslims must not befriend non-Muslims (Q4:89,144; 5:51).
How could pious Muslims, including Mr. Wishnoff, try to build a sincere friendship with others against the will of their Allah, Quran and Muhammad? They could if they followed a principle of Islam called taqiyya. Taqiyya is a deceptive tactic used to successfully penetrate or invade a non-Muslim community by creating an image of Islam as peaceful and non-threatening, for gaining the community’s trust. Politically, socially and morally taqiyya means that Muslims have to use every lie they can in order to spread Islam and win the war against opposition from non-Muslims. Muhammad commanded Muslims to deceive non-Muslims. The Quran also instructs Muslims to "Accept anything the messenger (Muhammad) may give you, and keep away from anything he withholds from you" (Q59:7). Not only are pious Muslims unable to have peace with others, but also they pose a danger to peace as long as they call themselves faithful and pious.

These pious Muslims call us bigots, Nazis or racists, simply because we have been exposing the plans of their religion, Islam, to the world. They are following the exact footsteps of their prophet who first accused his opponents falsely, then destroyed them and finally established the authoritarian law of Islam, Shari’a.

I am so fortunate that I am face to face with Mr. Wishnoff and his pious brothers in America (and in other non-Islamic countries) where Islam is not dominant, otherwise, he would have to obey his mentors and take my head to them. God forbid, if one day Islam dominates America, then every deceived American will see the reality according to the Quran:
You who believe (Muslims), kill any disbeliever who are close to you (relatives and neighbors) so that they may find out how harsh you are.  Allah is with those who are pious (Q.9:123). 
A pious Muslim is very harsh in his heart. If he shows himself as gentle, that is not what he believes.

What a privilege for us to reveal the true identity of pious Muslims to the world. They are inwardly tearing wolves that come to people in sheep's clothing. If Jesus did not transform us from the piety of Islam into His kingdom and if we did not have the love of Christ in our hearts for the world, we wouldn’t want to expose ourselves to the hostilities of pious Muslims. To express our love towards the world, we have no choice but to reveal the schemes of enemies, even if it may cost our lives.

In the meantime, we are hoping and praying that our revelation about Islam will help these pious Muslims to wake up and understand that with Islam they cannot be in the service of God. Islam is an authoritarian political system that ignores peoples’ rights. It cannot reconcile Muslims to God and to people.  Rather, it is faith in Christ, whose sacrifice has brought down the walls of hostility between nations, which brings us true reconciliation:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him (John 3:16-17).
The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work (1John 3:8b), establish justice in the hearts of nations (Matthew 12:20-21), and create peace among nations and between nations and God (Colossians 1:20).
Brothers and Sisters, let us remember that “… whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.  And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:16-18)

Who Are the Protectors of Freedom?

To respond to this question we need to know what freedom is and then examine our communities, schools, universities, leaders and governments and see their stand towards freedom.

What and where is freedom? How do we receive and protect freedom?

The Bible says:
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).
By setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God (1 Corinthians 4:2).

When a prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah, if the thing does not follow nor come to pass, that is the thing which Jehovah has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You shall not be afraid of him (Deuteronomy 18:21).
The Bible believes that man is capable of knowing the truth and allowing the truth to free him from untruth. So, freedom means knowing the truth, being occupied by the truth and being freed from untruth. The Bible gives responsibility to man to investigate, compare and discover the truth and eventually allow the truth to take possession of him, enabling him to protect freedom.

To know the truth, we have no choice but to read the beliefs in the world and embrace the one which is true.

Let us see how Islam, atheism, secular humanism and the New Age describe freedom:

Allah is the leading force in Islam, and he says:
No one knows its (Quran’s) hidden meanings except Allah (Quran 3:7).

…they (unbelievers) dispute about Allah.  And he is mighty in strength and severe in punishment (Q.13:13).
It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Apostle to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Apostle, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path (Quran 33:36).
The Quran neither believes in human beings' capacity for understanding nor in their capacity for decision making. It is Allah and Muhammad who decide for us all. In other words, people must follow Allah without knowing him and receive whatever Muhammad gives to him. If we rejects or question Muhammad’s authority (Q.8:6, 13, 31) we will be called hostile (v.15), deaf, dumb and worst of beasts (v.22) and our finger tips and head will eventually be chopped off (v.12).

Atheism (communism) also believes that:
It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, The Individual and Society, Moscow: Progress, 1984, P.162).
For atheists, people's understanding is secondary to the decisions of their society. In other words, society will establish an authoritarian government and the government will decide for people what to speak, wear, eat, drink and believe. We all are aware of what happened to those who spoke in opposition to the ruling authorities in communist countries. Freedom is evil in communism.

Today, the most dominant beliefs in the West are secular humanism and the New Age.  These ideologies believe that everything and everybody has their own personal truth. If this is the case, then there is no need for people to worry about freedom or lack of freedom, because the terms become meaningless in a context of coexisting belief systems, where anything and everything goes if it is true for you.

We see how the humans heart, mind and conscience are degraded in all the above non-biblical belief systems, in which spiritual oppression is veiled by so-called ‘freedom’.  Human beings are given freedom in these ideologies to surrender blindly to nothingness.

Imagine a time, maybe it has already arrived,  when the followers of Islam, atheism, humanism and the New Age establish strong roots in a society and have more rights than the followers of the Bible. Not only will it be that freedom cannot be protected in such a society, but it will also be progressively uprooted. This is where the Western societies are now being led.  The God of the Bible, who is all-knowing and rejects blind obedience, is replaced by blinding gods and blinding beliefs.

How can people have freedom if God, the author of freedom, is not allowed to live among them? How can they have freedom if they harbor and nurture authoritarian beliefs among themselves, against the God of the Bile?

For this reason we need to give place to God. We need to be the temples of His holy presence, so that His Spirit can come and reside in us, reflecting the light of His perfect law of liberty to people around the world. When He is in us, we can live and speak in the name of Freedom.  It is this freedom which gives us the courage to speak out against its enemies.

Nobody can protect freedom without God. It is only through God that true freedom can be received and upheld. It is our responsibility to receive and proclaim that truth and freedom.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly (Eph.6:20b)

The sworn enemies of the Gospel do not give up. We, therefore, must expect to be bothered, confined, imprisoned, persecuted and killed. They persecuted and killed the One who revealed the glories of heaven. If they are so against the Prince of Peace, obviously they will act the same towards His followers.

What we can do in the face of all the above pressures in this world?

Every person in the world can only make one of two choices:  follow the Prince of absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness; or follow His sworn enemy.

We are full of excitement that we have a new identity in Christ and are able to stand for His absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness and hold them as the standard of our lives, no matter how angry His enemies will be. We have solid reasons to be excited; our sins are forgiven; we are free and have the hope of glory.

On the other hand, the enemies of Christ are chained by their man-made traditions.  Sadly they are not able to see their bondages. This means it is not easy to talk to them. Some of them are full of anger and are even taught to practise anger and avoid listening. The Lord has chosen and called us to deal with these very hard ones. Please hold us firm in your prayers so that we might be always able to remember our identity in Christ and declare His saving message fearlessly.

Why are you so determined to kill?

Does anyone have a sound solution for a hostile person or religion? Is anyone other than Christ the solution? The biblical response is "No", and the Bible gives a reason for it.

The purpose of Christ's revelation in reaching out to the nations was first to reconcile them to God (John 3:16; 2Cor.5:18) which is called "salvation", and  second to reconcile them to each other (Col.1:20) which is called "peace". We see that spiritual newness is the base for political and social peace and tolerance:
He (Christ) himself is our peace, who has made the two (Jews and Gentiles) one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility (Eph.2:14).
The unifying mission of Christ is unique and perfect and no one or religion in the world is able to unite the nations with one another and with God as Jesus does.

He said to those who were determined to kill Him:
"... you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word....If you were Abraham's children, then you would do the things Abraham did. As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the things your own father does....you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him" (John 8:37,39-41,44). 
“But, if you give room to my words in your heart, I will set you free from killing and hostility, and then you will become the true children of Abraham; "Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother's were righteous" (1John 3:12).
 For Jesus, only people who are strangers to God can be hostile toward others. His plan in coming to this world was to set people free from hatred, hostility and killing and to make them friends of one another. We can confess that we are his living examples who have been freed from hatred and hostility. The glory of freedom belongs to Him our Lord, but to no one else (Acts 4:12).

Speak out, the Threat of Islam's One-Way Freedom Is Huge

Islam is undertaking multidimensional warfare against your country.

Saudi Arabia, the most active country in financing terrorism, has already started the war with your country and has endangered its national security. It has supported mosques and other organizations which are spreading Wahhabism, the state religion of Saudi Arabia.  They are establishing hot-beds of terrorism, everywhere. They preach hatred, teach jihad, and encourage polygamy, as well as child marriages and forced marriages. Saudi officials do not allow you to take your  holy book to Saudi Arabia if you are a non-Muslim, but Saudi Arabians have been free to build thousands of Islamic centers, schools and mosques in Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Asia and Africa in less than a decade. It is Islam that teaches them this One-Way Freedom.

Islamic One-Way Freedom is anything but freedom; it is the enemy of true freedom. It slyly enters free societies in order to destroy real freedom. Islamists abuse freedom in democratic countries in order to establish their authoritarian religion at the cost of free values. They are now paving the road for the full establishment of Islamic law in your country. Once it is established, your country will become like Saudi Arabia or Iran, where Islam is the ruler, and humanity crushed under its dictatorship.

Many giant financial institutions in western countries are expanding their regulations to cater to the financial principles of Islamic states, purely to make more money. Islamic banking principles are not only for banking: they are a weapon for financial warfare. Their goal is to establish the Islamic community’s supremacy gradually, until everything in the country falls into Islamists’ hands. Great Britain is the outstanding contemporary example of this. Leaders in this country opened the door to Islamic financing decades ago. Now Islamic courts have become part of judiciary system in England. In Great Britain, the Islamists’ money has  carried with itself a religion which is establishing itself in England and is aiming at the erosion of all other religions and beliefs in this country. If English people do not wake up and speak out, it will not take long for their country to become an Islamic nation.

Please do not wait for your presidents, prime ministers and politicians. Many of them have fallen into a pit of political correctness and multiculturalism.  They are paralyzed with fear and ignorance, and unable to confront the Islamic threats. They value their jobs more than their (your) country and therefore keep quiet against Islamic conspiracy. They do not recognize that their silence and indifference is a betrayal to their own nation.

If they loved their country, Islamists would not be able to disregard democratic values and impose themselves on the majority. Your politicians are ignoring the fact that all Islamic countries disregard Reciprocity, Equal Opportunity, Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech, even though they are legally accountable to the world through their signatures to the United Nations international agreements. Yet your politicians turn a blind eye when the servants of these Islamic countries spread their inhumane principles in your country and breach the rights of others. The money of the petrol lords has blinded many of these politicians to such a degree that they are unable to ancitipate the  disasters which loom in the future as a result of the Islamists’ investments.

What can you do in such a situation, where many politicians are unwilling to solve or address the problem of Islam imposed on your country? If ever there was a moment for you to speak out against the Islamist vision for your nation, and stand for the democratic values  that moment is now.

You need to:
1. Speak out and show that you care for the rights of your fellow citizens.
2. Stand behind those who are courageous and speak out.
3. Help your community to know the truth and act on the truth, before it is too late.

Who Can Care for the World and Maintain Order in It?

Do people from diverse nations care for each other? Do they know the chapters of each others’ lives and beliefs? Have they discovered the hidden barriers among themselves in order to work out the solution and remove the barriers? If yes, to what extend? If not, why not?

Do they know where the world is heading to? Are they happy with what the world is? If not, do they have any goal for the well being of the world? What values and channel have they discovered to be the best in order to remove their unsatisfaction and lead the world to a better future? Are they interested to contribute toward the well being of the world?

Do they know whether or not their ideas and beliefs are able to avoid dictatorship and conflict amongst nations and lead them to a peaceful relationship? Do they have peace-making values in their beliefs that can create willingness in them for the enforcement of peace in the world? Do they know that misunderstanding and misinterpretations sometimes lead to hostility and bloodshed?

Do they believe in real change that leads to high achievement? Do they know that through understanding they can create and generate better ideas? Do they know that understanding enhances creativity in every level of life? Do they know that there is capacity in each person to achieve the best value and thereby make a glorious change in their lives and relationship with others? Are they willing to exert high levels of effort towards understanding and change?

Do they know the real meaning of democracy and freedom? Do they know that the freedom of one is not at the expense of others? Have they ever been able to make time and come out from their personal zones and evaluate their beliefs globally with other ideas and beliefs? Do they know whether or not they have a universal value to accept every member of human race no matter of their beliefs, races, nationalities, etc.?

One reason for peoples’ disinterest in contributing genuine efforts for the well being of others and the world is their lack of knowledge. They do not feel obligated for understanding the chapters of each others’ lives and beliefs. However, the case is different with Christians. Christians are called to understand, discover the real meaning of freedom, taste it, and thereby maintain order in the world. The Bible says;

When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order (Prov.28:2).

Choose…knowledge rather than choice gold…I have understanding and power (Prov.8:10).

Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. But now… you know God (Gal. 4:8-9).

He will punish those who do not know God…They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed (2Thes.1:9-10b).

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32).

Without understanding, we will not be able to lead nations to peace for the world and to the eternal peace. We need to take this issue more seriously than ever in this modern era of 'globalization' that has brought people from diverse nations together. EFD has committed itself to this ministry; to wake up the churches in Australia and the world to learn on how simply to address the eye opening words of Christ to the consciences of people from other nations and prepare them to have peace in their hearts and to contribute for maintaining a peaceful order in the world.

What if we compromise with Islam (2)?

Why do some westerners want to compromise with Islam? What kind of future will our children have if Islam is rewarded and praised in our societies? Has any Islamic country done so well with Islam that we want to compromise with Islam in order to share in the same benefits?
Let us see what picture of Islam is given in the Qur’an:
Spiritually: Sin is inspired in man by Allah (Q.91:7-8). In other words, man has been corrupted by Allah’s own hands. Doesn’t the sin inspired by Allah affect Muslims’ spiritual, social, moral, political and economic life? It does.
Socially: Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110), and among Muslims men are superior to women (Q.4:34). Wives are asked to abide at home and not to go in public (Q.33:33). Husbands beat their wives (Q.4:34; 38:44). Non-Muslims are unclean (najis in Arabic) (Q.9:28). Those who reject Islam are dogs and evil (Q.7:175-177). Jews are called monkey, pig and donkey (Q.2:65; 5:60; 62:5) and Christians are called monkey (Q.5:60). Muslims are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind… (Q.3:110).
Politically: Muslims are called not only to avoid friendship with Christians and Jews and others (Q.5:51), but also to avoid friendship with their own fathers and brothers who are not committed to Islam (Q.9:23). Other religions and believers are fully unacceptable (Q.3:85). And Jihad is ordained for Muslims against the followers of other religions and beliefs (Q.2:216). Allah loves those who do battle for his cause (Q.61:4). So, the imposition of the Islamic Law (Shari’a Law) is the global vision of the Qur’an.
Morally: The Qur’an states that Allah has inspired sin (immorality) in humankind (Q.91:8). There are shocking and shameful statements about both Muslim and non-Muslim women in the Qur’an (i.e. Q.33 and 24:31,33). Such statements become even uglier in the Islamic traditions where they are even applied to infant girls. In addition, Islam teaches lying and deceiving as legitimate tools for the sake and progress of religion (Q.2:225; 3:28; 16:106). These verses establish that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
Economically: The Qur’an says, “It is not for a believer, man and woman, to have any choice in their affairs, when Allah and his apostle have decreed a matter…(Q.33:36). That is why there is not a definition for work in Islam. Everything you earn belongs to Muhammad (and his representatives) and Allah. If even Muslims do not have any choice in their relationship with Muslims, what about non-Muslims who are called animals?
Committed Muslims and the Qur’an have already responded to the opening question. They will not compromise with the values of unclean West, but they are delighted if the West chooses to compromise with Islam and put itself under Islam’s yoke.
Islam is challenging not just our democratic values but additionally is forcing us to surrender to its bondage? Sadly, unwillingness to solve the problem of Islam has penetrated almost every aspect of life in the West and non-Islamic countries? Are we waiting for Muslim leaders to do something? Aren’t we aware that the Qur’an teaches Muslims to erode the life values of non-Muslims?
Do we feel responsible for the well being of our family, community and country? Do we believe our lives should reflect that there is a difference between good and evil? Do we? If yes, then let us stand against Islamic intimidation by living for Christ, attaching ourselves strongly to His holiness, justice, love and victory.

What if we compromise with Islam (1)?

There are three sources of information that we can use to answer the above question:
1. Muslims,
2. The Qur’an, the holy book for Muslims, and
3. The West.
Almost all Muslims (some under the weight of cultural pressures) will respond that Islam is spiritually, socially, morally, politically, economically (in all dimensions of life) superior to and ahead of all other religions and beliefs. In asserting this view they will introduce you to a picture of Islam that is completely strange to the pages of the Qur’an.
Let us see what picture of Islam is given in the Qur’an:
Spiritually: Sin is inspired in man by Allah (Q.91:7-8), in other words, man has been corrupted by Allah’s own hands, and therefore no one, even Muhammad himself, has the assurance of salvation (Q.46:9). We all know that spiritual corruption or uncertainty is the root of all other corruptions and uncertainties in life. For this reason, uncertainty is huge in the Islamic world and has penetrated every dimension of life.
Socially: Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110), and among Muslims men are superior to women (Q.4:34). Wives are asked to abide at home and not to go in public (Q.33:33). In the April 9, 2002 issue, The Wall Street Journal published about the concept of blood money in Saudi Arabia, the heartland of Islam, referring to the inferiority of women and people from religious groups other than Islam. If a person has been killed or caused to die by another, the latter has to pay blood money or compensation, as follows;
– 100,000 riyals if the victim is a Muslim man
– 50,000 riyals if a Muslim woman
– 50,000 riyals if a Christian man
– 25,000 riyals if a Christian woman
– 6,666 riyals if a Hindu man
– 3,333 riyals if a Hindu woman
Politically: Muslims are called not only to avoid friendship with Christians and Jews and others (Q.5:51), but also to avoid friendship with their own fathers and brothers who do not follow Islam (Q.9:23). Other religions and believers are fully unacceptable (Q.3:85). And Jihad is ordained for Muslims against the followers of other religions and beliefs (Q.2:216). Allah loves those who do battle for his cause (Q.61:4). The imposition of the Islamic Law (Shari’a Law) is the global vision of the Qur’an.
Morally: The Qur’an states that Allah has inspired sin (immorality) in humankind (Q.91:8). There are shocking and shameful statements about both Muslim and non-Muslim women in the Qur’an (i.e. Q.33 and 24:31,33). Such statements become even uglier in the Islamic traditions where they are even applied to infant girls. In addition, Islam teaches lying, deceiving, etc. as legitimate tools for the sake and progress of religion.
Economically: The Qur’an says, “It is not for a believer, man and woman, to have any choice in their affairs, when Allah and his apostle have decreed a matter…(Q.33:36). That is why there is not a definition for work in Islam. Everything you earn belongs to Muhammad (and his representatives) and Allah. If even Muslims do not have any choice, including economic choices, what about non-Muslims?
Why, then, do some westerners want to compromise with Islam, if this is the case with Islam? What kind of future will our children have if Islam is rewarded and praised in our societies? Has any Islamic country done so well with Islam that we want to compromise with Islam in order to share in the same benefits?
What about us? Do we feel responsible for the well being of our family and community with a desire to have a better quality of relationship with others? Do we have any standards in our hearts that make us want to stand whole-heartedly for the best values in life? Do we believe our lives should reflect that there is a difference between good and evil?
Muslims and the Qur’an have responded to the opening question. They will not compromise with the West, but they are delighted if the West chooses to compromise with Islam. The West however is not certain about how to answer the question. They are yet to make up their mind.
Sadly, many in the West have forgotten about our Lord Jesus Christ and the spiritual disciplines upon which our freedom is based. Often Christians have been more darkness than light and have not reflected the glory of Christ to those who are in darkness.
“….. when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
By his grace alone, he will still find in some! Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord!

What a shocking proposal the Muslims in England have made?!

The So-Called Moderate Muslim Leaders in England have proposed that the British Government accept that the only solution to combat the threat of terrorism in Great Britain is the “Shari’a”, the law of Islam.

After reading this, I was shocked at how manipulative the Muslim leaders in England are. They are even more destructive than the terrorists in trying for the legitimization of the “Shari’a”. In Islam, this manner of destruction is called Taqiyya, which is one of the most efficient arms of jihad, for winning the war against infidels.

These Muslims do not have even a little mercy towards Britain despite using the advantages of this nation. How do you get rid of terrorism through “Shari’a”? Is “Shari’a” a real solution to terrorism, or is it the real gate-way to terrorism? Let us closely and briefly see what these Muslims mean by proposing “Shari’a” as the solution?

1. Shari’a says: The true religion with Allah is Islam (Q.3:19). No religion other than Islam shall be accepted (Q.3:85). Christians and Jews and polytheists are the worst among creatures and they go to hell (Q.98:6). So, Shari’a means, as in all Islamic countries, that Islam must be the only dominant religion at the cost of demolishing all other religions and beliefs.
2. Shari’a says: You (Muslims) are the best folk that has been raised up unto mankind (Q.3:110). Muslims must not befriend non-Muslims (Q.4:89,144; 5:51). Christians and Jews must pay to Muslims in order to stay alive. They have to be humiliated. They belong to hell (Q.9:29-30, read the whole chapter). Pagans (or the holders of other beliefs other than Christianity and Judaism) have not choice but to die or to embrace Islam (Q.9:5). Take therefore none of them for friends, till they have fled their homes for the cause of Allah. If they turn back, then seize them, and slay them wherever you find them (Q.4:89). So, Shari’a means that the only solution for Christians and non-Muslims to overcome this humiliation is to become Muslim.
3. Shari’a says: Prepare against the infidels whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them (Q.8:59). Both the Qura’an and the Shari’a commands Muslims to prepare themselves for terrorizing (Hujum in Arabic) Christians and non-Muslims.

If you are a committed Muslim or you are able to understand what is in the heart and mind of a committed Muslim, you will be able to understand the real meaning of these Muslims’ proposal. It means that these younger Muslims want you to accept Islam as your religion; otherwise, they are not going to stop terrorism. To stop fighting against infidels is a sin in Islam.

However, if you do not understand Islam and the will of its followers, your only choice is to be deceived by these sorts of Muslims. This is the reason that England and other European countries have lost a great deal to Islam.

Why Are Committed Muslims Trying to Get Polygamy Legalized in the West?

Committed Muslims in the West have declared polygamy in Islam as grounded in science and humanitarianism in order to make it more acceptable. These Muslims claim that it is both scientific and humanitarian for a man to have more than one wife when the population of women is greater than men. Do they really believe their solutions are scientific or humanitarian? No. They are saying this because they know there are so many people who simply will not trouble themselves to consider whether or not this is based on truth but will simply believe whatever may seem pleasing or enticing at the moment, thus enabling the establishment of the Islamic agenda in the West with their support. This is an opportunity that committed Muslims will not miss.

Why aren’t these Muslims willing to call it scientific or humanitarian for a woman to marry two or more men when the male population exceeds that of the female population in a society? Why won’t they allow Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men, even though Muslim men are allowed to marry non-Muslim ladies? Why do they kill Muslim girls for loving and marrying non-Muslim boys? They are oppressed or killed because Allah’s declaration regarding polygamy seeks only to please the fleshly desires of Muslim men and to eradicate all non - believers, which undermines every allusion to anything scientific or humanitarian.

The United Nations’ 2005 gender statistic (http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/products/indwm/ww2005/tab1a.htm) proves that the population of men in most Islamic countries is typically greater than that of the female population. What is the scientific solution of Islam in this case? There are no scientific applications to be found here. Instead, Allah decreed war against all non-Muslim societies, calling all Muslims, as a matter of religious obligation, to brutishly invade these societies, and to slaughter all non-Muslim men who refuse to accept Islam, in order that there may be a majority of women, which would allow for every Muslim man to have up to four wives and as many slaves as he desires.

It is a fact that never once, during the first thirteen years of Muhammad’s ministry, before he came to power as a statesman and Commander of the Islamic Army, was there any decree given by Allah that Muslims should engage in polygamy. It was only in the last ten years of Muhammad’s ministry, after he became rich by looting Meccan caravans and Jews, and after war (jihad) against non-Muslims became obligatory, that polygamy was mentioned. Thousands of Jewish and pagan girls and women were taken captive for the pleasure of Muslim men. There is also evidence that even some of Muhammad’s own friends and followers were embarrassed by his hostile decrees and eventually left Muhammad and Islam. Some of these men were murdered for deserting Muhammad after the Islamic Army became sovereign over Saudi Arabia, but those who were not killed were given the opportunity to redeem their lives by returning to service in the Army of Islam.

Committed Muslims are also obtaining wives in non-Islamic countries via financial and cultural jihad. An important example of how completely effective this tactic is, can be traced back seven hundred years ago to Indonesia when Muslim merchants began targeting Indonesia, and attracting its authorities’ attention to their wealth. Muslim men were able to obtain the consent of these unwary authorities to marry Indonesian women, focusing on demographical increase and, eventually, Muslims replaced a Hindu-Buddhist Indonesia with the Islamic Indonesia we know today.

Clearly, the scientific and humanitarian solutions so loudly proclaimed by committed Muslims are not really scientific or humanitarian at all, which is why they work so persistently to keep Islam’s anti-women legacies alive: If women were given any value as humans in Islamic countries, Muslims could not hold on to their polygamist traditions. The reality is that they have closed themselves off from the Truth. In the Truth, only a man and a woman can join together in marriage and establish real love. For this reason, God created one Adam and one Eve, not many Eves for one Adam. Sadly, some in the Bible have also ignored this truth. To justify Muhammad’s polygamy, committed Muslims have started to use biblical references of polygamy. For their own purposes in discovering logic and truth, they declare the Bible to be distorted and useless, but for the justification of polygamy, the Bible seems to hold value for them.

The reality behind the committed Muslims’ motives for polygamy in the West is to increase their numbers by having many children, thereby achieving a dominant majority as speedily as possible, while imposing themselves on Westerners, as their forefathers did to other non-Muslim societies in the Middle-East. Polygamy was not commonly used by Muslims as a primary tool for domination, but the use of force and violence was used first in order to bring people under submission, making them ripe for domination through the use of polygamy. Now, it is being used in contemporary society as a form of spreading Islam in a subtle, yet effective way.

The contemporary army of Islam does not have the war power to invade western countries, and dominate them by killing their men and taking their wives. They have, therefore, chosen cultural and financial fighting approaches for which the contemporary mind of the West is ready. First, the establishment of Sharia (Islamic law) under the pretence of multiculturalism which will gradually, but inevitably, lead to total domination. The Western liberal and altruistic attitude has become a poison to its own people. A poison which will quickly spread until Islam has gathered as many supporters as it needs to accomplish its ungodly mission.
Decades ago, committed Muslims realized that a bloodless victory over passive non-Muslim societies was an investment in demographical increase and domination by numbers. The increase of the Muslim population in western countries in recent decades is proof of their success. If polygamy is legalized in western countries, success will be highly rewarding for the Islamic agenda: Within a span of 7 to 14 years, every committed Muslim man could potentially add as many as 28 children to the Islamic population in any Western nation. That is, if each of a possible four wives bears the average seven children per household, which is fairly standard for traditional Muslim families. This will not be the end of the story: When polygamy is established, committed Muslims will certainly push hard to legalize concubines, referred to as mistresses in the West, and short term marriages.

Western countries do not know the hidden agendas behind the requests of committed Muslims. There are some humanists and atheists who have sided with committed Muslims because of their own ideologies, uniting to establish a stronger anti-Christian stand in the West. Sadly, these people do not know that once Islam gains power they will no longer have the freedom to exercise their rights. Since the rise of Islam, many humanists, atheists and others have been burned and killed, as has been the case in the contemporary radical Islamic countries, including the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is no doubt when committed Muslims take over the West they will first kill their non-Muslim western supporters, who once opened their arms to them in the name of ideology or democracy. Almost all communists in Iran supported Ayatollah Khomeini against the Shah in the years prior to the 1979 Revolution, but they were either killed or imprisoned, or were forced to escape after the Revolution. Escaping did not mean that they were completely out of danger. Some who did manage to escape as far away as Europe were quickly discovered and brutally murdered by the agents of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

There is a trap behind every Islamic value that committed Muslims proclaim as righteous, and Westerners will be in a much safer place if they recognize the hidden agendas in Islam before it is too late. Committed Muslims can be easily compared with the Angel of Darkness: They outwardly appear to be a people of light and peace, but inwardly they are dark and hostile (“…for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14). These men who seek to dominate the West through polygamy and violent extermination have deceived westerners with their pious disguises, but Jesus Christ warned men such as these: “Woe to you…hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also appear outwardly righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Matthew 23:27-28).

Polygamy: Embarrassing to Middle-Easterners Too

The Muslims who press for polygamy in the western countries are a source of embarrassment to millions of their own fellow Muslims throughout the world. 1400 years after the domination of Islam, not even one percent (1%) of Muslims supports polygamy. One reason for this is that since Muhammad, the best man humanity has ever known according to Islam, was unsuccessful with his multiple wives, it would be very unlikely, almost impossible, for his followers to be successful with their wives. To rescue themselves and their societies from the Islamic decree of polygamy, Muslims in the Middle-East have shown that the actions of Muhammad and his immediate successors are irrelevant to their own lives. Because of fear from Islam, Muslims do not have any choice but to justify what Muhammad and those after him did, but even the way they justify the polygamous lives of their prophet and other leaders is done in such a way as to excuse their families from polygamy. Their justification is that Muhammad and his successors were righteous men closer to Allah than they themselves are, and therefore able to treat their multiple wives equally.

Polygamy wouldn’t be practiced in the Middle-East if the religious leaders did not impose themselves on people, as they are trying to do in the western countries. Due to the influence of the western life in Middle-Eastern countries throughout the previous decades and Muslims’ strong disinterest in polygamy, almost all Islamic countries have made polygamy conditional, ignoring the expectation of Islam. One condition is that you need to get permission from your wife for the second marriage. Did Muhammad or his successors ask permission from any of their wives for their next marriage? The other one is that the age of marriage is higher than the recommendation of Muhammad. Time and time again he encouraged his followers to marry little girls in order to justify his marriage with the little girl, Aisha.

The reality is that if a Muslim man aims to have a second wife, he will receive extreme opposition from his own family members. Why? Because polygamy among Muslim leaders was the cause of political, social, moral and economic disasters in Islam’s history since the rise of Islam.

The following verses and comments of Muhammad regarding women give some insight into why he was unsuccessful in his polygamous marriage and did not leave a good legacy for Islamic societies. Once Muhammad said, “The best of you is he who is best to his wife” (Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah). As he offers no specific answer for this, allow me to provide you with some statements directly from Muhammad and his Qur’an:

  • Among the Believers (Muslims) are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah… (Q.33:23).
  • They ask thee (Muhammad) concerning women’s courses. Say: They are a hurt and a pollution: … (Q.2:222).
  • Women are discouraged from going outside the house (Q.33:33), but if they go, they must cover themselves in order not to be recognized (Q.33:59).
  • Muhammad once said to a woman: ‘Watch how you treat your husband for he is your Paradise and your Hell (Suyuti, commenting on Q.4:34)
  • Husbands can beat their wives (Q.4:34; 38:44)
  • Wives should not be saddened for anything you may give/tell them (Q.33:51)
  • Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, "He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.” (Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2127 )
  • Muhammad said: “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler” (Bukhari: Volume 9: Book 88: Hadith 219).
  • If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some (other) way (Q.4:15).

But the punishment for men with the same crime is so different if they simply repent:

  • If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-returning, Most Merciful (Q.4:16)

There are hundreds of other references which I am not able to refer to here, some of which are highly disrespectful towards women.
1400 years of bloodshed between Sunnis and Shiites started with the problems arising from Muhammad’s polygamy. As Abraham’s problem in marriage caused hatred and bloodshed between the descendents of Ishmael (Arabs) and Isaac (Jews), the polygamous marriage of Muhammad has also caused innumerous bloody wars that Sunnis and Shiites were not able to get over.
There were a number of things which Muhammad did that made his wives unhappy, one significant thing being that throughout war time, Muhammad slept with some of the female captives, even in the war zone. Sometimes, he had a wife only for a night (called temporary marriage). As a result of his wives’ discontent, Allah revealed verses to him threatening his wives with divorce if they did not keep quiet (Q.66:3-5). Even his most favorite young wife, Aisha, said to Muhammad several times that Allah was always interested in pleasing himself alone. In one case, two men found Aisha guilty of adultery, which created the chaos between the later established Sunnis and Shiites. This made Muhammad unhappy of course and he did not speak to his wife for a month. He consulted his son-in-law, Ali, who was in favour of a divorce (Bukhari :: Volume 9 :: Book 92 :: Hadith 462). On the other hand, Muhammad was under pressure from her father, Abu Bakr, who was Muhammad’s right hand man and therefore did not dare to apply the punishment for adultery on her. He was trying to find a way to release himself from his duty. He eventually received a verse from Allah that four men are needed to witness adultery (Q.24:13), not two. This made Ali unhappy and eventually created a huge chasm between the family of Ali and Abu Bakr and thereby between Shiites and Sunnis. Just immediately after the death of Muhammad, there was a bloody war between friends of Ali and of Aisha.
Shiites still call Aisha an adulterer. I have even witnessed ceremonies, in Iran, where scarecrows of Abu Bakr (Aisha’s father) and Omar (the second successor and father-in-law) are burnt to express hatred towards these top leaders. No Shiite would name his daughter Aisha. For practicing Sunnis, Shiite women and girls are categorized as slaves, as is also the case for practicing Shiites towards Sunni women and girls. This explains why Zarqavy, the master mind of Al Qaedah, issued in an internet order in Iraq that female Shiites (including wives) are the property of Sunni men and belong to them.
The above will attest to the influence of Muhammad’s polygamy within the Middle-Eastern communities. The affects of polygamy in Muhammad’s time has largely contributed to the wars among Muslims throughout the history of Islam. Coming from a polygamous family, I know from my own experience that the injustice, discrimination, jealousy and unfairness towards ladies in Islam do not match the marital values of Christianity. Westerners need to wake up and reject the lies of those Muslims who press on for polygamy in the West.

No Truth, rather Fantasy

In my trips to western countries, I discovered that some Muslims spread false news that the invasion of Muslims into Spain and India were very peaceful, resulting in the liberation of those nations.

For those of us who were once committed Muslims and know the motivation behind Islam’s invasions, we can see the falsehood of this claim. Surprisingly though, there are some in the West who actually believe this, despite the contradiction of history. Obviously, one of the things that has encouraged these Muslims to be bold in their deception is the writings of some westerners who have chosen to live as dhimmis of Islam; who ignore the facts and serve Islam at the cost of their own national values. No wonder these servants of Islam are under the pressure of their Muslim associates and friends to blame Christians and Jews for every crisis among Muslims. Whatever happens among Muslims within Islamic lands is attributed to the West.

There is no doubt that these Muslims and their dhimmis are also trying to leave a false legacy for future Muslims, to create a picture of righteous deeds in the name of liberation, veiling the reality of the present bloodshed so prevalent in India and Spain today. The followers of Muhammad have learnt that if they can manage to cover the facts for a generation, the following generations are unlikely to question what is now being presented as ‘historical facts’. A present day example of such deception can be seen in Iran. Though all Iranians know that Arab Muslims came and slaughtered millions of their forefathers and took their wives, daughters and wealth for themselves, there is also a lie which has been driven ahead from the first day of invasion that says, ‘It was Iranians who called Arabs to come and liberate them.’ This lie is still in Iran and it has been kept by both committed Muslims and their non-Muslim dhimmis to mislead Iranians. The people of Iran will not be rid of this lie until they rid themselves of Islam and its driving forces.

It is the same with Spain and India. From 710 AD, Christians and Jews were persecuted, slaughtered and burned alive because of their objection to Islam. No only that, Muslims also passed discriminatory legislations in order to humiliate them according to the Qur’an. The Andalusian Maliki jurist, Ibn Abdun (AD.1134) followed the footsteps of his prophet Muhammad and decreed:

No…Jews or Christians may be allowed to wear the dress of an aristocrat, nor of a jurist, nor of a wealthy individual; on the contrary, they must be detested and avoided. It is forbidden to greet them with “Salam” (Peace be upon you). In effect, ‘Satan has gained possession of them, and caused them to forget Allah’s warning. They are the confederates of Satan’s party; Satan’s confederates will surely be the losers! (Referring to the Qur’an 58:20-21). A distinctive sign must be imposed upon them in order that they may be recognized and this will be for them a form of disgrace.

This is just one example among many. Christian and Jews in Spain suffered what others have been suffering in Egypt, Iraq and Iran, among others. Actually, the situation in Spain was even worse than Egypt, so much so that some non-Muslims escaped to Egypt because of the severity of humiliation in Spain.

The case of Islamic aggression towards Indians proves even more severe than Spain. Muslims in India were more blood thirsty than those in Spain. They did not spare any Hindu man they found until they dominated. Muslims in Spain based their philosophy of invasion on the humiliating decrees of the Qur’an 58:20-21. Any who revolted against this humiliation were killed. But Muslims’ philosophy of invasion over Hindus was based on the Qur’an 47:4, which orders the killing of all unbelievers until complete domination. Hajjaj, the Muslim Governor, orders (AD 712) his commander Muhammad Qasim:

The great God says in the Koran [47.4]: "0 True believers, when you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads." The above command of the Great God is a great command and must be respected and followed. You should not be so fond of showing mercy, as to nullify the virtue of the act. Henceforth grant pardon to no one of the enemy and spare none of them, or else all will consider you a weak-minded man."

In just a few centuries of Muslim domination, India’s civilization and prosperity suffered. India was once one of the world’s greatest civilizations with its high quality of education and scientific discoveries. However, nomadic Islamic culture soon brought this to an end.

Why would Muslims go against these historical evidences which are recorded in their own books? It is because of their god, Allah. The Qur’an says: “Allah is the best of deceivers” (3:54; 7:99; 8:30; 10:20). It is Allah who has made them fervent deceivers. Their fervency in deception is so high that they can lie despite hundreds of killing decrees recorded in the Quran, Hadiths and Muhammad’s biography, which led to hundreds of massacres throughout the Islamic history for the establishment of Islam. These massacres are even praised in schools and mosques in the Middle-East.

We do not need to go far into history in order to be able to prove the cruelty of Islam. We have today's Islamic governments of Saudi-Arabia (the heartland of Islam), Iran, Sudan and some others with their anti-Semitic and anti-Christian laws. One example of such laws is contained in the website http://www.saudiairlines.com/services/travelguide.jsp of Saudi Arabia’s Airline asks you not to carry your Bible or Cross or David’s Star with you if you travel to this country.

Why, instead of drawing from contemporary Islamic life, are these Muslims trying to draw people’s attention to centuries ago? Because they know that the majority will not take the trouble to investigate their words in depth and test their accuracy. They also know that because of Islam, not one of the contemporary Islamic countries can tolerate freedom. For this reason, they direct peoples’ attention to the past rather than to contemporary Islamic reality. Among the present Islamic countries, which one has allowed the freedom of religion to Jews and Christians and others? Even Turkey, who has been attempting to enter the European Union, has not been able to adapt itself to the values which promote reason, progress and equality in Europe. Why? Because these qualities are Christian values that are rejected by Islam. It was just last year (2007) when three Christians were beheaded in Turkey for the sake of their faith. It is interesting that in their attempt to soften the severity of this attack, the lawyers placed blame on the martyrs, accusing them of proselytizing Muslims. The Islamic domination and discrimination in Turkey have prevented its people from seeing why and how Christianity contributed to political, social, cultural and economic progress in the West. As long as they attach themselves to Islam, they will waste their God given choice for freedom with the fantasy of life in Islam. You cannot hold Islam and freedom in one heart. Islam is against freedom.

Where is the sense in all this deception? Why the necessity to cover the truth, when faced with the opportunity to embrace the Truth? A number of reasons, really: fear, loyalty, tradition, heritage, identity, and so on. While I criticize these Muslims, in the depth of my heart I cry for their closed minds and pray that they might be able to see the light of Christ and humble themselves to Him in order to be blessings to all others rather than deceiving.
