I’m tired of hearing that the majority of Muslims are peace-loving and that they are not like the radical Islamic terrorists.
In true fact, the only difference between so-called peaceful Muslims and the radical Muslim terrorists, is that the violent actions of the radical Muslims are more sensationalistic and theatrical, and are waged against civilized people within civilized countries, not against Muslims within Muslim communities. But to be a Muslim is to wage war on infidels. Period. Terrorists’ acts against infidels is just more outrageous and newsworthy when it is an attack on us.
You think the average Muslim is peace-loving and tolerant? Look at the majority of Muslim countries: There are 7 countries in the world which execute you just for being an atheist — all are Islamic. Each year over 1000 Muslim women are buried up to their necks in sand and brutally stoned to death for such “crimes” as being raped. Over 3 million young women each year suffer the horrors of FGM (Feminine Genital Mutilation). The purpose of this barbarism is to discourage women’s promiscuity. No anesthetics are provided to the victims. Legal punishments for minor crimes include severe whippings, amputations and beheadings. Islam denies women basic human rights, justice, education and respect, because they are women.
Clearly, any distinction between radical-Islamic beliefs and practices, and those of “peace-loving” Muslims is blurry at best.
In our zeal to appear tolerant of Islam, let us never forget that this is a religion of absolute intolerance — not a religion of peace. Their “holy” book, the Koran (Quaran, Qu’ran) is very explicit as to what a Muslim must do—murder non-Muslims (infidels, unbelievers, idolaters, atheists):
– “Muslims are harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another.” – (Surah) 48:25
– “Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme.” – 8:39
– “On unbelievers is the curse of Allah.” – 2:161
– “When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. – 9:5
– “Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme.” – 2:193
– “Allah will humble the unbelievers. Allah and His apostle are free from obligations to idol-worshipers.
– “Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers.” – 9:2-3
Next time you see a harmless Muslim in your grocery store or on a street corner, remain tolerant of their human rights, but keenly aware of what their religion demands of them.
