We have all seen the horror inflicted in New Zealand,
with 50 innocent people murdered in two mosques by white
nationalists. Countless others were wounded in the
attacks. Why did they do it? According to one of the
assailants, they were inspired by their hero, Donald Trump.
Not because of his policies, but because of what he stood
Here is a rant I found by a writer who publishes his
books on Smashwords, a site for indie authors. How many
agree with the author's POV? How many find his views
Islam - Religion of Peace? <rant by Francis Porretto>
There is no slightest possibility of a true, sincere,
"dialogue" with Islam. Here's why: "I will instill terror
into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their
necks and smite all their fingertips off them."
[Koran, Sura 8:12]
"But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and
slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them,
beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem
[Koran, Sura 9:5]
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day,
nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited,
nor follow the religion of truth of the people of the Book,
until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel
[Koran, Sura 9:29]
"Fighting is prescribed upon you, and you dislike it. But
it may happen that you dislike a thing which is good for
you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad
for you. And Allah knows and you know not."
[Koran, Sura 2:216]
"Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those
who disbelieve fight in the way of the Shaitan. Fight
therefore against the friends of the Shaitan; surely the
strategy of the Shaitan is weak."
[Koran, Sura 4:76]
"O Prophet! Struggle against the unbelievers and hypocrites
and be harsh with them."
[Koran, Sura 9:73]
"Jihad is the best method of earning, both spiritual and
temporal. If victory is won, there is enormous booty and
conquest of a country, which cannot be equaled by any
other source of earning. If there is defeat or death,
there is everlasting Paradise and a great spritual benefit.
This sort of Jihad is conditional upon pure motive."
"Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam
counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless.
Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would
kill you all! Does that mean that Muslims should sit
back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]?
Islam says: Kill the [non-Muslims], put them to the
sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean
sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us?
Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who
may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should
surrender [to the enemy]?
Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks
to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People
cannot be made obedient except with the sword!
The sword is the key to paradise, which can be
opened only for holy warriors! "There are hundreds
of other [Koranic] psalms and hadiths [sayings of
the prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight.
Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that
prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those
foolish souls who make such a claim."
[Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, speech, 1942]
"The spread of Islam has gone through several phases,
secret and then public, in Mecca and Medina. God then
authorized the faithful to defend themselves and to
fight against those fighting them, which amounts to
a right legitimized by God. This...is quite reasonable,
and God will not hate it....
[Muhammad] gave three options: either accept Islam,
or surrender and pay tax, and they will be allowed to
remain in their land, observing their religion under
the protection of Muslims."
[Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdel Aziz al-Sheikh,
9/17/2006, reported on the Saudi News Service] Islam is
not a religion; it is a totalitarian creed bent upon world
conquest. It seeks total domination over all lands and all
persons, and in all things. It has embraced deceit
(taqiyya and kitman), violence, and every form of
subterfuge to gain its ends. There can be no "dialogue"
The above rant was a book review. About a book promoting
dialogue between Muslims and Christians. It seems to me
the author of the book review had his mind all made up
before he even started reading the book. Talk about real
dialogue. Dialogue with a closed fist.
We are all of the blood of Abraham. Jews, Christians, and
Muslims. Why should any believer promote hate? Is that
what any of the Jewish/Christian/Muslim prophets promoted?
