An introduction to Islam.


Public figures and pundits across the political spectrum, from George Bush to Barack Obama and Shawn Hannity to Alan Colmes, suggest that the global war "on terror" - which actually describes a tactic rather than an enemy - is against some rogue "radicals" that have "hijacked" an otherwise peaceful religion. Islamic groups in the U.S. even rent billboard space on the side of public buses to advertise that Islam is simply another Abrahamic faith, suggesting kinship, to Judaism and Christianity. With public displays of one pope kissing the Quran and the next bowing toward Mecca from inside a Mosque, while indicating that Muslims do indeed worship the same God, it might give one pause to wonder.

Most Muslims in the U.S. seem peaceful enough, so why are so many in the middle east cradle of their religion, so violent? How is the Islamic violence in England, France and the rest of Europe to be explained? What about Africa, India, and Indonesia? How can there be so much blood spilled, all around the world, at the hand of a so-called "peaceful" religion? With some counts as high as two million killed, in the Sudan alone, why does the peaceful Islamic, presumed majority, remain so stunningly silent in regard to Muslim atrocities committed throughout the world? Where's the public outcry from their Imams and other leaders condemning the violence?

Some Muslims proof text verses out of the Old Testament and New, to try to find Mohammed in scripture, and even suggest that they follow the "law" because they don't eat pork and skip lunch for a month, but seem to miss the fact that there are 613 Mosaic laws, and that Muslims are almost universally born Gentile, not Jew. Others suggest that you have to read the Quran in Arabic in order to understand Islam, but a Christian only needs to know A SINGLE VERSE from their book, in any language, to recognize that Islam is the PERFECT OPPOSITE of the new covenant:

Surah 4.157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

While blindness to the Gospel that God gave some Jews is discussed in the book of Romans, everything a Christian needs to know about Mohammed's religion is revealed through this single verse that rejects ALL of the prophets, apostles, and the WHOLE SUBJECT of the new covenant, that brought salvation unto Gentiles.

Even as ALL Muslims are required to deny Jesus' blood, many believe that the first drop of blood shed by a Muslim so-called "martyr", may provide propitiation for the sins of seventy of his nearest and dearest friends and relatives. But Mohammed prevents them from believing that a loving God could manifest Himself in the flesh of a man, to do the very same, for all who have faith in His shed blood.

Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

It is easy to understand why Muslims go to desperate measures, to imagine Mohammed as a prophesied prophet, but to no avail.

Thus they are left with a stand-alone 6th century religion, recited by a single individual, who received "revelations" from a spirit while alone in a cave that even Mohammed came away believing was a demon, because he thought it tried to squeeze the life out of him three times. Christians understand such an event:

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

From the single verse in the Quran denying Jesus' shed blood, Christians can readily recognize where to find Mohammed, in the Word of God:

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.    
But Mohammed even came as a ravening wolf.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

But Mohammed cannot deceive God's elect. Any so-called Christian "converts" to Islam are only those that deluded themselves into believing they had been Christian.

One of the most blessed verses in all of Christianity is:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

No surprise then that Mohammed's answer is:

Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

Mohammed's "Allah" even curses Christians and Jews for it:

Surah 9.30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

If "Allah" were the same as the Christians and Jews God "Yahweh" He would seem both schizophrenic and bi-polar! So perfectly opposite to Christianity is Islam that it should give even a devout atheist pause to wonder.

Western Muslim apologists for the Islamic violence we see all around the world, either know very little about their own religion, or are engaging in Islamic subterfuge - known as taqiyyah - or lying in the way of Allah. They certainly should know that if they lived in the cradle of their religion, and protested Islam's fourteen hundred year lust for conquest of all the kingdoms of the world, they could be killed as apostate, or at a minimum shunned by the Muslim community.

Practicing taqiyyah some will suggest that Islam is peaceful by partially quoting a verse near the beginning of the Quran:

Surah 2:256 "Let there be no compulsion in religion:..."

But that verse is abrogated by many later verses that suggest violence against non-Muslims such as:

Sura 8:12 I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.

We find this verse manifest, for example, in Indonesia where three teenage girls were beheaded on their way to their Christian school and one of their heads left on the steps of a Church. The note left behind reads:  "We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents."

Regarding no compulsion in religion, we find a practical example of what happens, once Islam is in control:
AP - December 06, 2006 MOGADISHU, Somalia - "Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an Islamic courts official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days."

If a Saudi Arabian doesn't show up for prayers in the morning the religious authorities may show up at their home to find out why. This is the same enforcement authority that killed 15 girls by sending them back into a burning school, because the girls were emerging without head coverings, in their panic to escape the flames.

At least 18% of the world's Muslim population holds views that the vast majority of non-Muslims would consider radical. No small number with a global Muslim population of about 1.5 billion suggesting that minority is close to 300 million. A practical view is that the non-apostate 18% of the Muslim community is doing the heavy lifting of Islamic conquest, while the remaining 82% are satisfied to remain quietly on board for the ride. This would explain their silence in regard to the violence perpetrated by their brethren. While generally subdued in their cheers for Islamic victory when around non-Muslims - except perhaps on U.S. college campuses - we witnessed jubilant celebration throughout the Islamic world, in the wake of the innocents killed in the World Trade Center's destruction.



Over it's first 13 years, Mohammed's was a reasonably peaceful religion, but he was barely able to win a hundred converts, and was frequently ridiculed. Then he picked up the sword and began "conversion" through an Islamic reign of terror that included the murder of poets asleep in their beds, who had critiqued his "revelations", as well as caravan pillage and plunder and slaughter of an entire village of Jews who didn't buy into his new religion, but preferred their 2000 year old religion.

From the conquest of nearly the whole known world of the Islamic First Jihad, to Ahmadinejad, the 1400 year goal has remained the same: "Do not doubt Allah will prevail, and Islam will conquer mountaintops of the entire world.". The dar el salaam, or house of peace, conquest of the dar el harb, or house of war. If you are a non-Muslim you may not be at war against Islam, but Islam has been at war against you for fourteen hundred years. No surprise that they lust after the kingdoms of this world, since these kingdoms became Satan's legal possession at Adam's fall. In stark contrast, Christians are specifically called out of these earthly kingdoms, and into the kingdom of God.

Many Muslims put on a facade of being peaceful Mecca style Muslims when around non-Muslims, in areas where Islam is not in control, but become militant Mohammed-Medina style Muslims, when in the company of their own, or in countries controlled by Islam.

Is it reasonable to suggest that Muslims that preach peace will be the ones that prevail in Islam, or will it continue to be the ones that would cut the heads off of those who preach peace, believing them to be apostate? Even now we see Sunni and Shiite murder of each others innocent men, women, and children, for believing each other to be apostate. Some Muslim fathers behead their own daughters and wives as a means of preserving their "honor".
