Islam: The Religion of War (I)

images (1)

The hoary slogan of “Islam is peace” has been drowned by the shrill cry of deaths and destruction amidst chants of “Allahu Akbar!” in places like Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Central Africa, northern Nigeria and other parts of the world.

For years, many people have argued that Islam is basically a good religion but has been hijacked by some “hot headed” radicals.

Some Christians who have neither read the Quran nor the hadiths even assert that “Islam is peace because I have peaceful Muslim friends and neighbours!”

It must be noted however, that it is the examples and teachings of religion’s founder that determine whether these peaceful adherents are the norms or exceptions. The basic question is, is Islam really a religion of peace? In order to answer that question, let’s take a brief look at the life of Muhammad and his teachings.

Muhammad began his Medinan career by attacking rich Meccan caravans passing near his base. The first three assaults failed but the fourth succeeded because his victims didn’t expect an ambush during Ramadan.

Arab tribes refrained from aggression during their pagan “holy month,” but Muhammad received a “revelation” authorizing him to plunder and murder in Allah’s name (Sura 2:217).

It’s quite intriguing that the same Allah who commanded Muhammad to raid people didn’t teach him how to do it. He had to learn it by trial and error just like any greenhorn thief.

On March 16, 624 near Badr, he led 300 warriors in a vicious attack against a large Meccan caravan protected by 800 men.

At last, 40 Meccans were killed and 60 taken as prisoners. Only 14 Muslims died. Verses quickly “descended” to absolve his men of the murders: “Ye slew them not, but Allah slew them” (Sura 8:17).

Muhammad proved his prophethood with the sword and sealed his apostleship with blood.

One of the Meccans captured at the battle of Badr was Al-Nadir – Muhammad’s enemy – desperately pleaded with his tribesmen, now Muslims, to spare his life (the Quraish don’t kill war captives). He was told that the tribe bonds are now broken by Islam and since he had ridiculed Muhammad years before, it’s payback time.

After Al-Nadir was killed, Muhammad recited a verse to justify it: “It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he had made slaughter in the land” (Sura 8:67).

Muhammad arrived at Medina a poor man, but within a few years, he and his gang became wealthy. Their wealth came by robbing and killing the Jews in Medina, causing the disappearance of the Jewish communities from Arabia. This genocide was also justified by some verses (Sura 33:26-7).

Poets who criticized Muhammad were not spared – from Asma bint Merwan to Abu Afak, to Kab Al-Ashraf. Muhammad justified their assassination by reciting that all poets were “inspired by Satan” (Sura 26:221-7).

Some Muslims in Medina (who apparently didn’t agree with jihad) built a mosque and invited Muhammad to bless it. He burnt down this mosque and recited:

“As for those who put up a mosque by way of harming and disbelief, and to disunite the believers, and as an outpost for those who warred against Allah and his messenger aforetime … Allah bears witness that they are certainly liars. Never set foot in it” (Sura 9:107-108).

This set a precedent for Muslims to destroy mosques that they judge to have deviated into heresy.

Allah’s dogmas in the Quran are clear:

Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that ye hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, ye know not” (Sura 2:216).

And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.” (Sura 2:191-193)

Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority” (Sura 3:151)

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

Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil. Lo! the devil´s strategy is ever weak” (Sura 4:76)

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

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

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

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

And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah.” (Sura 8:39)

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

O Prophet, exhort the believers (Muslims) to fight…” (Sura 8:65).

Lo! Allah loveth them who battle for His cause in ranks, as if they were a solid structure” (Sura 61:4).

In total, there are 100+ verses related to war in the Quran. Some Muslims try to evade these by saying: “These verses are only for the battlefield.” This argument is demonstrably false. Here’s why:

1. These Quranic violent verses are explicitly offensive e.g

Sura 4:77 “Have you not seen those to whom it was said: Withhold your hands, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; but when fighting is prescribed for them, lo! a party of them fear men as they ought to have feared Allah, or (even) with a greater fear, and say: Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us? Wherefore didst Thou not grant us a delay to a near end? Say: The provision of this world is short, and the hereafter is better for him who guards (against evil); and you shall not be wronged the husk of a date stone

From this, it can be deduced that even Muhammad’s followers were initially reluctant to wage war against non-Muslims, but Muhammad convinced them to believe that this was Allah’s injuction which must be obeyed.

Sura 47:4  “Now when ye meet those who disbelieve, smite their necks until when ye have slain them greatly, then make fast the bonds; then, thereafter let them off either freely or by ransom, until the war layeth down the burthens thereof. That ye shall do. And had Allah willed, He would have vindicated Himself against them, but He ordained fighting in order that He may prove you one by the other. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He shall not send their works astray

Some English translators have slotted in “in war” after “when ye meet those who disbelieve” to make it seem like defensive war, but such an effort lacks textual basis and is self-defeating.

In this verse, we are told that if Allah willed, he could have fought his own enemies himself to defend his name, but he just choose to use human slaves for his nefarious works. That is a self-admission of how weak Allah is.

Sura 9:41 “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew

This is by no means self-defense but a call to offensive war.

Sura 9:5 “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free…”

This is indicting that unless the non-Muslims embrace Islam they are to be slain. Note also that the Arabic word “quateloo” which means “kill” was used here. Some English translators have censored the text to read: “Fight against the idolaters.”

2. From the contexts behind these verses, Muhammad and his army were the aggressors. They were the ones who initiated battles against non-Muslims.

It is recorded that they fought a total of 63 battles with Muhammad personally leading 27 raids. Of all these wars, only two were defensive – the battle of Uhud and the battle of the Trench (or Confederates).

3. From an overall look of the Quran, it’s clear that the god of Islam relishes wanton destruction of lives and it is inconceivable that such a violent god would inspire a religion of peace.

4. The early Meccan verses which call for peace have been abrogated by the later verses commanding war and raids. The earlier verses typify when Muslims are a minority while the latter exemplify when they become a majority.

Therefore, Islam has a bifurcated form, depending on its political or military strength in a geographical location.

The feeble attempts of Muslims to project their jihad mentality onto Christianity does not stand up to Biblical knowledge, theology and sound interpretation.

The Quran says Muhammad is the “perfect example” for all Muslims and all Muslims who love Allah must follow him (33:21). Therefore, true Muslims must fight as he fought, kill as he killed and take women captives as he did, otherwise they are hypocrites (munafiq).

No rational mind should expect anything better from a billion people who not only take a terrorist as a role model, but also follow, condone and defend his crimes.

On the other hand, Christians have a perfect example in Jesus Christ who told no lie nor murdered His critics (1Pet. 2:22-3). Those who follow Him act like Him and for a Muslim to truly follow Christ, he must reject Muhammad.

The Cult of the Slave Masters

Some weeks after over 200 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by Boko haram in 2014, a video was released on YouTube. “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market by Allah,” said the Boko haram leader. “There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women.”

In consonance, Egyptian sheikh, Abu Ishaq al-Huwayni said:

“Spoils, slaves and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels … The milk al-yamin are the sex slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex slave, and buy her. She becomes your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman.”

Kuwaiti politician, Salwa al-Mutairi admits:

“Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman.”

Recently, an ISIS recruit in London, Patrick Kabele, wrote in his diary:

“In our religion, Islam, it is OK to have slaves. The prophet had slaves so I’m talking if I ever possess slaves … It’s an integral part of our religion.”

Indeed, there have been reports of Yazidi women captured and used as sex slaves by ISIS fighters.

A Christian woman narrated how she was “married,” raped and simultaneously divorced by 10 different Muslims in one single night.

In its official publication, Daqib, the Islamic State says:

“After capture, the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to Sharia among the fighters of Islamic State … Before Satan sows doubt among the weak-minded and weak hearted, remember that enslaving the kuffar [infidels] and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of Sharia” (BBC News, Dec. 22, 2014).

When Muslims from different social status, cultures and regions uniformly and confidently affirm slavery as an integral part of their religion, it shows that they all drink from a collective ideological fountain.

They draw their inspirations from the same poisoned stream of the Quran and hadiths creating an outflow of barbarism and wickedness.

Features of Islamic Slavery

1. Islamic slavery is basically directed at non-Muslims who are not immediately killed in jihad.

Sura 47:4 says:

So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e free them without ransom) or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden.

Sura 8:69 also says: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good; but fear God…

In essence, after each raid, the men, women, children and wealth captured during as spoils of war are to be distributed among the Muslim fighters.

A Saudi Islamic scholar, Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzana said: “Slavery is a part of Islam. Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam.”

2. Sura 16:75 highlights the mindset that drives Islamic slavery:

“Allah coineth a similitude: (on the one hand) a (mere) chattel slave, who hath control of nothing, and (on the other hand) one on whom we have bestowed a fair provision from Us, and he spendeth thereof secretly and openly. Are they equal? Praise be to Allah!”

This means Allah ordained slavery as a means of enriching the Muslim and punishing the infidels who are subhumans to be sold in markets like salt and onions. Verse 71 says:

Then, those who are preferred will by no means hand over their wealth and properties to those (slaves) whom their right hands possess, so that they may be equal with them in respect thereof. Do they then deny the Favour of Allah?

You see, the god of Islam is opposed to human equality. Wouldn’t it have been noble if Allah condemned slavery? Why did Muhammad not create a society of freedom and equality?

I recently had an exchange with a Muslim who wrote: “Equality is exercised practically in Islam and all differences before Islam vanished among Muslim communities.”

I pointed out to him that since slavery is endorsed by his religion, all humans aren’t equal in Islam. He replied, “Slaves are regarded as properties [sic], so who has the right to blame Muslims for the use of their properties? Human beings must have different roles to play in life. Some must lead others.

This response reveals the extent to which Islam destroys human conscience and empathy.

I then asked him: “So would you like to play the role of a slave? How would you feel if you were killed and your wives and children were taken as sex slaves by a gang of people who believed that their god has approved of slavery?”

He had no answer.

3. Islam grants Muslim masters the rights to sexually prey on their slaves as they wish. This precedent was set when Allah allegedly said to Muhammad:

O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom God has assigned to thee…” (Sura 33:50)

At a point, Muhammad sent his soldiers to wage wars against the people of Awtas:

“They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions were reluctant to have [sexual] relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allah, the exalted, sent down the Quranic verse: “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand possess.” That is to say that they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.” (Muslim 11:2150)

The rape of slaves is allowed because Islamic Law stipulates that:

“When a child or woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled” (Umdat al-Salik 9.13).

In the Muslim mind, slaves are Allah’s provisions to accommodate their helpless libido.

Many liberal Muslims try to hide this legalised depravity by quoting Sura 24:33 which says “Force not your slave girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world, if they would preserve their chastity.”

This doesn’t hold water. First of all, there’s no moral justification for capturing, enslaving or sexually preying on any human being. One doesn’t need a prophet from a dusty cave to tell one that. It’s inherently sinful and morally deplorable.

Second, why is the chastity of a female slave a priority higher than the salacity of her Muslim captor? This is like telling a rapist not to force his victims to get raped by other rapists or telling a victim to abstain from sex with other molesters so she can fully please her rapist!

This is not a divine revelation but a cogitation of a depraved mind.

The hypocrisy of that verse quickly fades off in the hadiths:

“We got female captives in the war booty and we used to to coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said ‘Do you really do that?’ repeating the question thrice. ‘There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence till the Day of Resurrection” (Bukhari 62:137).

Muhammad encouraged them to rape and impregnate their slaves. When Maimuna bint Al-Harih told him she had set her slave free, Muhammad replied:

“You would have got more [heavenly] reward if you had given her (i.e the slave girl) to one of your maternal uncles.” (Bukhari 47:765) This would have predisposed the slave to become a sexual prey.

4. Muslims quote Sura 90:13 that says “the freeing of slaves” is a good act, but they neglect the fact that this was an early Meccan sura.

Many of Muhammad’s early converts were slaves, so it was convenient for him to preach freedom to them to gain their support.

Later when he attained power in Medina, he and his followers enslaved others and sold them for gain. He said “The freed slave belongs to the people who have freed him” (Bukhari 80:753).

Sura 24:33 says “And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation) write it for them if ye are aware of aught of good in them.” This means a slave’s freedom is arbitrarily determined by his/her master.

A scholar pointed out that:

“In Islamic tradition slavery was perceived as a means of converting non-Muslims. One task of the master was religious instruction and theoretically, Muslims could not be enslaved. Conversion (of a non-Muslim to Islam) did not automatically lead to emancipation, but assimilation into the Muslim society was deemed a prerequisite for emancipation” (Transformations in Slavery: A History of Slavery in Africa, Cambridge Univ. Press, 2000, p. 17).

5. Allah so much approves of slavery that even in his paradise – his “gardens of pleasure” – there will be around Muslim men “eternal youths with goblets and awers and a cup of flowing wine” serving them (Sura 56:12-18).

This is probably why slavery wasn’t abolished in Saudi Arabia until 1962; it was interwoven with the warp and woof of their cult.

Some Muslims shamelessly admit that Islamic slavery was better because it mandates the master to take good care of his slaves. Anyone parroting this narrative lacks either human empathy or reflectivity. From Islamic records it can be seen that:

a) Slaves captured by Muslims were sexually abused.

Rayhana for example, was captured during the raid of the Bani Quraiza tribe and made a sex slave by Muhammad.

Ibn Ishaq records that “She remained with him until she died in her power. The apostle had proposed to marry and put a veil on her, but she said: ‘Nay, leave me in your power, for that will be easier for me and for you.’ So he left her. She had repugnance towards Islam when she was captured and clung to Judaism” (Sirat Rasulallah, p. 466).

Do we expect her to love a man who killed her father, brothers and exterminated her tribe?

b) These slaves were dehumanised.

They were only spared to be enslaved and used to ransom Muslim hostages.

The hadith records how some non-Muslims were killed and some “that consisted of women and children” were taken as prisoners. The prettiest girl among them was sent to Mecca and used as a ransom for Muslims prisoners in Mecca (Muslim 19:4345). This is still practiced today.

c) Their slaves were beaten.

When Abu Bakr’s slave lost his camel, “He then began to beat him while the Apostle of Allah was smiling…” (Abu Dawud, 4:1814).

Ibn Ishaq recorded that a slave girl was given a “violent beating” by Ali in Muhammad’s presence and he did nothing about it (Sirat, 734).

d) Their slaves were sold as merchandise.

Ibn Qayyim, says “Muhammad had many male and female slaves. He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased more slaves than he sold. He once sold one black slave for two” (Zad ad-Ma’ad, 1:160).

e) Their slaves can’t own any property or choose when to get married.

Muhammad said “If a slave marries without the permission of his master, his marriage is null and void” (Abu Dawud 2074).

The slaves were usually manumitted when they are too old to sexually satisfy their masters.

No Slavery, No Islam!

The Encyclopedia Britannica notes that:

“Slaves were owned in all Islamic societies, both sedentary and nomadic, ranging from Arabia in the centre to North Africa in the west to what is now Pakistan and Indonesia in the east. Some Islamic states, such as the Ottoman Empire, the Crimean Khanate and the Sokoto Caliphate [Nigeria] must be termed slave societies because slaves there were very important numerically as well as a focus of the polities’ energies.”

Slavery was a political tool with which Islam spread its wings. As the Muslim armies conquered nations, they not only acquired spatial territories but also took over the bodies of women as an extension of their rule.

So on the one hand, they could eliminate multiple lives of the infidels, and on the other, use their women to multiply themselves in great numbers. It’s a war strategy utilized by all fascistic ideologies.

As Muslim armies subdued other nations and replaced their cultures with that of Islam, a higher form of slavery resulted. Those spared were not only physically imprisoned but also mentally enslaved to despise their ancestors, bow to the savage god of Islam and adore the depraved prophet of Arabia.

North Africans and Northern Nigerians today will need to dig very hard to unearth their original cultural identity before the Islamic colonizers.

To be a Muslim, you have to be an Arab. You have to chant Arabic, dress Arabic, mimic Arab polity and travel to an Arab country to kiss an Arabian pagan stone. It’s a cult of the slave masters.

Yet, Africans are on the lowest rung of the Islamic ladder. It’s a well-noted fact that many of Muhammad’s slaves were blacks.

After the armies of Umar invaded Egypt and conquered the Makurian Christians, one of the terms of their treaty included supplying Muslims an annual payment of 360 “high quality” African slaves.

Till date, slavery is still legalised in Sudan, Mauritania, Niger and other Islamic nations. On March 7, 2012, South Sudan officially demanded the liberation of 30,000 slaves still held by Arabs in North Sudan.

For centuries, many African Muslims were coached to emigrate to Saudi Arabia by Arab overlords who promised to take them to Islamic “holy sites” and teach them to read the Quran in Arabic only to end up as their slaves. This is now disguised as millions of “guest workers” leaving Africa to chase a rainbow in Saudi Arabia.

Ali Ahmed, Director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, says “The monarchy’s religious tradition still views blacks as slaves.” As of 2012, Saudis were selling castrated black men on Facebook – a reminiscence of the the 1960’s slave trade which an eye-witness recorded:

“Ten [African] boys were ranged in a circle on the dais (used to display the slaves), their buttocks toward us. They were all naked, and I saw with horror that five had been castrated. The (slave dealer) said that usually 10% of the boys are castrated, being purchased by Saudi homosexuals or by Yemenis, who own harems, as guards” (Sean O’ Callaghan, The Slave Trade Today, 1961, p  75).

The god of Islam is a slave master who spiritually enslaves humanity. Muhammad was a slave master whose teachings still hold millions of people in mental and physical fetters.

True freedom is in Christ Jesus. He says: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

The Seeds of Jihad

images (13)

The current global resurgence of Islamic militancy in many parts of the world today is hinged on several reasons.

From the Islamic standpoint, the whole world is divided into two- the house of Islam (Darl-ur-Islam) and the house of Unbelief (Darl-ur-Harb).

It doesn’t matter what religion you adhere to or whether you have no religion at all, so long as you are outside the fold of Islam, you are in the fold of kafirdom, the house of unbelief – you are an infidel. Therefore, Islam is basically at war with the whole world.

Professor Bernard Lewis points out that:

“The greater part of the world is still outside Islam, and even inside the Islamic lands, according to the view of the Muslim radicals, the faith of Islam has been undermined and the law of Islam has been abrogated. The obligation of holy war therefore begins at home and continues abroad, against the same infidel enemy” (The Atlantic Monthly, 266.3: 49).

This is what motivates Islamic militant groups to arise with the agenda of imposing a pure Islam – free from all Western influences – on others.

Many of the Western teens who join these Islamic terrorist groups didn’t suddenly become bloodthirsty jihadists. Their indoctrination had lasted over a period of time until they were “ripe” for the task.

Interestingly, the so-called “moderate Muslims” are often at the forefront of justifying jihad. One of them said “Muslims kill a lot because they are killed a lot.”

This statement alone highlights the mindset of a typical Muslim: blame shifting. Finger-pointing is a nature of Islam. It’s a mentality Muslims got from Muhammad. He was always accusing his opponents of plotting against him, of persecuting him, or speaking against him till he killed everyone of them.

Muslim think-tanks argue that jihad is for the liberation of the Arab world from the oppression and injustices of their enemies. Of course, this is a more safer excuse than admitting that Islam is a religion of hate that divides and conquers.

It’s these perceived “injustices” Muslims think they are suffering from that serve as the ingredients and tools that recruiters of Muslim terrorists utilize to train, manipulate and motivate new jihadists for the cause of Allah.

These are tactics the Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Shabbab and the Hamas use to brainwash and pollute the minds of Muslim youths to make them join the jihad train.

Muhammad too used this tactic to incite hostilities against the Meccans. The Meccans didn’t drive out the Muslims or kill them, rather, it was Muhammad who insisted they must migrate with him even resorting to death threats:

“…And those who believed but did not leave their homes, ye have no duty to protect them till they leave their homes” (Sura 8:72)

They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them and choose no friend nor helper from among them.” (Sura 4:89)

Muhammad’s goal was to make his followers be willing to fight the Meccans. He forced them to go on exile to make them feel persecuted.

He used the hardship, isolation and “oppression” they experienced to instill in them hate and rage so they will be ready to fight and kill their fellow Arabs. He kept inciting their emotions to commit murder by telling them: “Oppression is worse than slaughter” (Sura 2:217).

To rule over ignorant people and make them side with you, you have to give them an enemy. The same is applied on today’s jihadists.

They are lectured about the imaginary and often exaggerated “oppression” and “injustices” Muslims suffer from the West and Israel. This is sometimes done through Islamic media outlets (like Aljazeera).

They are first programmed to see themselves as the victims and the Jews or West as the “oppressors.” They are then called upon to “play their part” in the Islamic struggle.

When these recruits go to the Quran with this new worldview, and they realize from many of its verses that murder of non-Muslims is a binding decree on the Muslim faithful, their hate and hostility against Jews, Christians and pagans is increased.

These evil verses of the Quran have inspired Islamic militancy for 14 centuries now.

There are some Muslims that go to the Quran, but do not become terrorists, because there are still some other conditions.

For instance, personal frustration or crises in the lives of Muslim youths (since Islam fails to address vital questions of life) makes suicide a viable option.

Combine this with the hate that the Quran has already instilled into them, they reach a point where they see suicide as a means of both killing the infidels and at the same time as a route of escape from their squalid lives. This is why most suicide bombers are losers. They seek glory through martyrdom.

Muhammad also appealed to his followers’ carnal desires by promising them sex with many beautiful virgins in paradise and rivers of wine. These same promises used to gear up young jihadists today. To them, to leave this bad world is to be comforted with sex in paradise.

Muhammad made obedience to Allah and himself the ultimate priority: “…and whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then verily for him is the Fire of Hell, he shall dwell therein forever.” (Sura 72:23)

If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline or the dwellings in which ye delight- are dearer to you than Allah or his messenger  or the striving in his cause; then wait until Allah brings about his decision; and Allah guides not the rebellious.” (Sura 9:24)

Total obedience to Muhammad and his deity and striving in their cause are the main priorities of Islam. All its other rites – pilgrimage, fasting, salat or alms giving are just mere window dressing to give Islam a look of “piety.”

When it comes to jihad, Muslims are to lay aside all morality, ethic, family or societal bonds and sanctity of human life in order to obey Allah’s dogmas. This is what emboldens jihadists to kill and rape with such impunity.

Jihadists-to-be also have people who encourage them and embolden them, and this often comes from various underground terrorist networks, Islamic leaders, mosques and even Muslim relatives.

This is what motivates so much rejoicing in the Islamic world each time many of their enemies (Jews or westerners) are killed.

Like that mother who received the news of her daughter who had died as a suicide bomber. When she learnt some Jews were also killed, she jumped up with joy and began to sing to her daughter’s picture, saying “Today is your wedding day.” Poor demon-possessed woman.

I saw a documentary about a Palestinian suicide bomber who bombed up a place in Israel. When his wife was interviewed, she was smiling with joy. She said:

He had long told me how he was going to be a shahid [martyr] and he finally did it. I hope our children too emulate his example. Alhamdulillah!

These ones have lost their humanity and are filled with pure evil. By means of lies, threats of Hell or fury from a sadistic Allah, Islamic leaders raise these mindless killing zombies for Allah.

Maya Gebelly, a journalist, conducted an online interview with some ISIS recruits to know what inspired them to become jihadists. One of them said:

We are friendly! Unless you are an enemy. Just because people are in ISIS doesn’t mean that they go around on a killing rampage. They are humans, they laugh, they joke, they goof with each other. The beheading, execution in public are messages to ISIS enemies, but are also part of Sharia law and shows they implement it fully.”

This man’s mind has been so warped by Muhammad’s evil teachings that he doesn’t even see anything wrong with people being killed, so long as they are “enemies” or “infidels.”

All jihadists have their minds held by an evil grip. Until a Muslim’s heart is changed by Christ, anger, hate and violence are his trademarks.

There is no amount of peace talk or presidential appeal that can quench the fire of hate that rages in the heart of a real Muslim. This is why the war against radical Islam can’t succeed until the evil mindset sustaining and motivating Islamic terrorism is totally demolished through the Truth.

However, God has promised those who leave Islam: “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 11:19).
