Understanding Islam #1: Unlike any Enemy America, has Encountered

As a nation, we are facing an enemy unlike any in our history. This enemy is not like the Nazis of WWII or the Japanese, who attacked Pearl Harbor. This enemy is one that has mastered the fine art of using our fear of appearing judgmental and close-minded against us. Every day we hear those in the media and elected to the highest offices of government speak of how Islam is a Religion of Peace. They talk about how those attacking innocent people are only a small percentage of Muslims around the world so should not be lumped in with the jihadists.

Well, I felt it was time to clear the muddy waters on the truth of Islam and its teachings. This is the first of several posts that will tackle the truth and dispel the falsehoods spread by those with a political agenda. It’s time that we understand just who it is we are facing in The War on Terrorism.

Ten simple reasons why Islam is Not a Religion of Peace

#1– There have been approximately 18,000 deadly terror attacks committed in the name of Islam in just the last ten years worldwide.

#2 – Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion. It did not matter who they were; women and children were not excluded. Muslims are commanded to emulate the example of Muhammad.

#3 – Muhammad had said several times that he was ordered by Allah to fight men until they testified there is no god but Allah. He also said Allah had chosen him as his messenger. In the last nine years of his life, Muhammad ordered no less than 65 military campaigns to fulfill that command. Muhammad inspired his men to war by using captured loot, sex and the promise of paradise as incentives. He beheaded captives, enslaved children and raped women captured in battle. This is something we need to understand fully; Muslims are commanded to emulate the example of Muhammad.

#4 –After Muhammad had died; the people who lived with him and knew his religion best immediately fell into war with each other. 10,000 Muslims were killed in a single battle waged less than 25 years after Muhammad’s death. In fighting and power struggles between Muhammad’s family members, closest and their children intensified with time with several being murdered. Within 50 short years of Muhammad’s death, even the Kaaba, which had stood for centuries under pagan religion, lay in ruins from internal Muslim war, and that’s just the fate of those within the house of Islam.

#5 –Muhammad directed Muslims to wage war on other religions and bring them under submission to Islam. Within the first few decades following his death, his Arabian companions invaded and conquered Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Zoroastrian lands. A mere 25 years after Muhammad’s death, Muslim armies had captured land and people within the borders of over 28 modern countries outside of Saudi Arabia.

#6 –Muslims continued their Jihad against other religions for 1400 years, checked only by the ability of non-Muslims to defend themselves. To this day, Islamic fundamentalists continually attempt to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists in the name of Allah.

#7 – Islam is the only religion that retains its membership by threatening to kill anyone who leaves. This was set forth by Muhammad and continues today.

#8 –Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human. Muhammad stated that Muslims can be put to death for the murder of a believer, but a Muslim would never be put to death for killing a non-believer.

#9 –The Quran never speaks of Allah’s love for non-Muslims, but it speaks of Allah’s cruelty toward and hatred of non-Muslims more than 500 times.

#10 –Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!” were the last words heard from the cockpit of Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania on 9-11-2001.

As you can see, we are being lied to daily. Islam does not teach to love those of other religions. My friends, we must arm ourselves with the facts of Islam. We must not allow the Political Correctness crowd to control the narrative. I hope you have found this post informative and will share it with your friends and family.

In our next post, I will be covering the truth of the Crusades.
