Response to SOP Reader on Islam
I am Mr. Pat
I am not confused as to what Islam`s position on terrorism is. If you ask me if Islam is a religion of peace I will answer that, yes it is, in that Islam teaches that once the entire world succumbs to Islam there will be peace in the world. In other words, kill or enslave all those who refuse to succumb. That is not the peace I believe in, it is a perverted peace.
My last book, Christians Under Siege address the issue. Propaganda is not historical fact. People like your SOP reader pervert the facts burying Islamic history under a veil of propaganda.
The Qur`an is a book of war and hate, not a book of peace. One simply needs to read it as translated pre 1933. Islam understands force and teaches the recruit by any method, " forced conversion, enslavement, or slaughter, is acceptable to spread the faith. Muhammad converted less than 150 to his peaceful message in his first 10 years of public life. However, once he turned Islam into a religion of war and conquest, and after slaughtering the Quarish Jews who stood in his way, , he managed to conquer all of Arabia by the time he died 10 or 12 years later.
The problem is that once the oppressed overpowers the oppressor, he often becomes the oppressor. How else can anyone interpret Surah 2:190, instructing a new member of the Muslim ummah how to live his newly found way of life?
And slay them wherever you catch them and turn them out from where they have turned you out. Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter, but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, but if they fight you, slay them, such is the reward for those who suppress faith. "
Surah 2:193 makes it a war without end, Jihad.
And fight them until justice and faith in Allah prevails. "
Muslim is not a term for a race of people it is a term for a cult of people and a way of life, hence the term ummah " meaning family. You cannot argue religion with a Muslim, so I do not try. Islam is not just a religion, it is a form of government. What you can argue is that most Muslims, such as your SOP reader, do not know what they are professing to believe.
Islam is growing at the rate of 3.5 to 4 % a year, doubling every 16 to 20 years. However, Islam is not concerned with quality of life, simply quantity of life. What is happening in the world is not a war between Islam and the west, it is a war within Islam as to who is going to lead the next chapter of Islam. Sunni Al-Qaeda, or Shiite Iran. America simply stands in their way of settling the fight.
Existing Conflicts by the Terrorists of the So-called "Radical Islam" I think the author Mr. Pat has misunderstood many root causes of the existing conflicts by the terrorists of the so-called "radical Islam".
