“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society.  When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”  ~Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

 

When dealing with Islam it is extremely important that we are aware of the tactics the cult employs when communicating with our culture and when relating to the Muslims we happen upon in our daily lives.  Although Islam advocates truthfulness among Muslims, it does not advocate honesty in dealing with unbelievers.  Just the opposite is true, several verses in the Quran and the historical record of Muhommad’s dealings with the unbelievers of his day encourage lying.  The Muslims accomplish this through two forms of lying called taqiyya and kitman.  The word “taqiyya” literally means “concealing, precaution, guarding.”  It is used to disguise Muslim beliefs, ideas, feelings, convictions, opinions and strategies.  We see taquiyya used extensively in our media when Muslim interviewees lie, deceive, confound, dissimulate, vex and contend while never providing straight answers to questions and dancing around the truth.  The word “kitman” means lying by omission.  The Muslims do this a great deal also.  Consider the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) insisting that it “has not now or ever been involved with the Muslim Brotherhood, or supported any covert, illegal, or terrorist activity or organization” yet they conveniently failed to mention that their organization was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, that they bankrolled Hamas, and that nine board members of the ISNA have been accused by prosecutors of supporting terrorism.  Further, consider the “American” cleric Anwar al-Awlaki who was regularly sought out by the NPR, PBS and government leaders to consult regarding the “peaceful nature of Islam” prior to engineering the Fort Hood massacre and attempting to blow up a Detroit bound airliner.  Yet, these are just certain individuals who have corrupted Islam, right?  No!  This method of deception was common in the tribal culture present in Muhommad’s day, and was both encouraged and practiced by the prophet himself.

Muhammad used deception when he signed a 10 year peace treaty with the Meccans which allowed him access to their city.  During the two years that he adhered to the treaty, he used that time to prepare his forces for a takeover.  He broke his treaty with the Meccans, and promptly executed many who had trusted him at his word.  Many times Muhammad pretended to use peace so that he could take his enemies off guard, such as with Usayr ibn Zarim, who was attempting to gather an armed force against the Muslims.  Muhammad sent “emissaries” that pursuaded Usayr ibn Zarim with promises of peace to leave his stronghold.  Once exposed and vulnerable Usayr and his thirty companions were massacred by the Muslims.  There is also the example of Jadhima which trusted the Muslim’s leader that they would not be harmed if they offered no resistance and converted to Islam.  They laid down their arms and the men of the tribe were promptly tied up and beheaded.  Muslim’s try to justify Muhammad’s murder of everyone that criticized him by saying that his victims broke treaties with their actions yet they say nothing of the countless treaties broke by Muslim’s.  Their actions historical and in today’s world demonstrate that Muslim’s cannot be trusted.  Leaders in the Muslim world routinely say one thing to English-speaking audiences and then say something entirely different to their own people in Arabic. 

Muslims maintain that Islam teaches honesty yet their is an almost complete absence of verses in the Quran and the Hadith that encourage truthfulness.  First, lets look at what the Quran says:

  • Quran 3:28 – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”
  • Quran 9:3 – “…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…”  The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture.  They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.
  • Quran 40:28 – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.
  • Quran2:225 – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts” the context of this remark is marriage, which explains why Sharia law allows spouses to lie to each other for the greater good.
  • Quran 66:2 – “Allah has already ordained for you, (oh men), the dissolution of your oaths.”
  • Quran 3:54 – “And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.”  The Arabic word used here for scheme is makara, which literally means deceit.  If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same.

Taken together, these verses stipulate that there are circumstances when a Muslim is not only allowed to lie, but are encouraged to do so if it serves to accomplish a greater purpose.  If the Muslim god Allah is deceitful, how much so is it acceptable for his followers to also be deceitful?

Further, Islam sanctions lying in the Hadith (books from the 8th and 9th centuries referred to by Islamic scholars in matters of Islamic law and history).

  • Bukhari 52:269 – “The Prophet said,’War is deceit.'”  The context of this is thought to be the murder of Usayr ibn Zarim and his thirty unarmed men after he “guaranteed” them safe passage.
  • Bukhari 49:857 – “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things is not a liar.”  Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.
  • Bukhari 84:64-65 – Speaking from a position of power at teh time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.”
  • Muslim 32:6303 – “…he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to bring reconciliation between them).”
  • Bukhari 50:369 – Recounts the murder of the poet, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad’s insistance.  The men who volunteered for the assasination used lies to gain his trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad.  They slaughtered him when he came out of his fortress.

    Finally, in Islamic law “Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746-8.2) – “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives.  If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it.  When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory…it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”.  In other words, “One should compare the bad consequences entailed by lying to those entailed by telling the truth, and if the consequences of telling the truth are more damaging, one is entitled to lie.

All this by a “religion” labelled as “One of the great religions of the world?”  In Islam you have a deceitful, lying deity, an oath breaking liar for a prophet, a holy book that condones lying and deceit, and a system of laws that condone lying.  It is no wonder that western people are baffled by the doublespeak employed by Islamists as they use every imaginable method to avoid plainly speaking the truth about their goals, beliefs, and views regarding human rights.  The religious writings of the Muslims tell us plainly that we cannot trust them, the actions of the Muslims tell us that we cannot trust them, and the history of the Muslims tell us that we cannot trust them.  All of this is not to say that there are some Muslim individuals who are in fact trustworthy, but they are trustworthy in spite of Islam not because of it.

“Congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or prohibiting the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  US Constitution

In the present climate of “hate speech” and “politically incorrect” ideas and statements I wonder if all these new terms are not just attempts to stifle debate and silence critics?  After all, who exactly defines what is politically correct and what is hate speech?  What is hate speech anyway?  Much of these terms seem to border on insanity when observed by a rational mind.  Political Correctness manifests itself in our society in three ways.

  1. Political correctness is a set of attitudes & beliefs divorced from mainstream values.
  2. The politically correct person has a prescriptive view on how people should think & what they are permitted to discuss.
  3. Political correctness is embedded in public institutions, which have a legislative base, & which have coercive powers.

The third manifestation is what makes political correctness so powerful.  If they didn’t have coercive powers it would just be another view discussed in classrooms etc.  It is interesting to note that politically correct politicians have ceased to represent the interests of the majority.  Rather, they are fixated on the cares & concerns of minority groups.  It is interesting to watch the liberal media, and the liberal politicians as they labor to establish anything contrary to their views as politically incorrect.  This is not surprising, since political correctness was birthed in Marxism at the Institute for Social Research (originally known as the Institute for Marxism) in 1923 Germany.  Thus, it is not surprising that Liberals and their ilk are the ones espousing “Political Correctness” so vehemently.  To disagree with them is to be hateful, intolerant (abandon all your opinions?), racist etc.  It flows so naturally with Marxist ideology, since in Communism (and Islam)  the individual is abandoned for the collective. 

The course of battle against this intellectual parasite is to demand Free Speech be regarded as more important than Political Correctness and the restrictions it wishes to impose on our freedom.  Further, Political Correctness is the enemy of Free Speech and only one can prevail.  These disgusting Marxist codes must be cast out and we must all embrace our ancestral liberties and rights!  If we don’t, we will be helpless to battle the forces that wish to enslave us and steal our freedom.

“Islam is itself destiny and will not suffer destiny” – Muhammad Iqbal

Many of my prior posts have referred to various aspects of Islam, such as its judicial side and its political side.  By just discussing the political and Sharia aspects of Islam, I don’t want to imply in any way that there exists a religious Islam that is fine.  There is not.

 I know that Islam appeals to the religious impulse; but I could easily argue that communism and Nazism also harnessed the religious impulse and that millions of people believed in those ideologies with religious devotion and fanaticism.  The fact that faith is exhibited by its adherents does not confer religious status on an ideology.  In order to do battle with an enemy, we must learn all we can about him.  We must understand what Islam is and what it is not. 

When we hear about religion in the west we automatically assume that it conforms to certain criteria.  We assume that religion has as its goal the moral development of the person.  We assume that religion by nature treats all human beings with dignity and respects their right to choice.  We base these assumptions on the Judeo-Christian heritage of our western society.  Even our laws and the U.S. constitution give specific rights and protection to religion and its practice in our society at large.  When we consider these laws, we must remember that they were framed in a time when Islam was unheard of in western societies.  These laws were framed to protect religions that meet certain criteria.  There are four major tests that religions must pass in order to be offered religious protection.  These tests are as follows: 

  1. Adherence to the religion must be a personal choice.
  2. No religion should demand that those who leave it be killed.
  3. A religion must never mandate the killing and subjugation of those who choose not to belong.
  4. A religion must be in accord with basic human rights.

Islam fails all four of these crucial tests.  Islam rejects the principle of voluntarism that is common to all authentic religions.  Islam has spread through war and slaughter.  There has never been peace in Islam.  The moderate Muslims can claim that Islam is peaceful, but they do not have anything other than their opinion to shore up their arguments.  How can they argue with the Koran which explicitly says “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” and “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”   Considering that the writings of the Quran are considered the very words of God, they are immutable, and not subject to individual interpretation; they must be interpreted literally.  The moderates don’t have a leg to stand on, and the fundamentalists know this. 

Islam demands that those that leave the faith must be killed.  Once a person is a Muslim, they are always a Muslim.  Many of the apostates that have turned from this faith live in hiding, cannot trust that their own families won’t murder them, and oftentimes end up as political refugees in the west.  Often we read in the news of immigrant Muslims killing their daughters that become westernized seemingly without remorse.  This is a direct result of Quranic brainwashing that teaches adherents that those that don’t follow Allah are not human beings and thus it is not murder to kill them.  What kind of twisted ideology justifies a man killing his own daughter?  Islam turns family member against family members.  Islam turns nations against nations.  Just look at my post on  “Peaceful Islam”   for a record of the deeds of Islam. 

Islam is the only “religion” that requires territorial sovereignty.  Its laws are not laws of the heart but rather laws of the land.  This makes Islam totally incompatible with western civilization.  Sharia law is the only law for Muslims, and their religion does not allow submission to nonbelievers. 

Islam does not adhere to equality under law.  They believe that women are less than men, and they believe that unbelievers are less than believers.  The only way for nonbelievers to live peaceably with Muslims is if they pay the Jizya tax (a tax on Christians and Jews in Islamic societies).  Unfortunately, even paying the Jizya tax is no guarantee you will not be butchered or hunted to extinction.  Muslims can renege on their agreements with unbelievers any time. 

The Quran does nothing to build the moral quality of the believers.  The Muslim submits to the rules and ordinances of Allah, nothing more and nothing less.  Material obedience is elevated above all considerations of Truth, Goodness, and Morality.  Control of the body is everything to the Muslim.  The Muslim mind is totally focussed on the material world. 

Worship is defined in Islam as obedience to Islam and Islam represents the entire will of God for all men.  In Islam God is unknowable, and his will is all things.  This is the equivalent of saying there is no God.  If God’s will is everything that happens, that means that even the will of man is God’s will, and if that is the case there is no difference between God’s will and man’s.  Since there is no difference between God’s will and man’s then there is no God.  Thus, the only god the Muslim’s have is Islam itself.

The broadest definition I can give to religion is that it is the pursuit of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.  These values stand apart from the world, in fact, they evaluate the world.  When we pursue value we incorporate those values into ourselves.  In pursuing Goodness we become good, in pursuing Truth we reflect truth, in Beauty we reflect and appreciate the beauty of creation.  True religion leads us to God and allows us to experience God’s love. 

Islam subordinates everything to itself.  Islam is considered the highest value; thus Truth, Beauty, and Goodness are considered contained within Islam itself.  There is no higher truth than Islam, no higher good than Islam, nothing more beautiful than Islam.  Islam, Islam, Islam, Islam, Islam!  Islams goal is not to lead men to seek those higher values; it is considered those higher values itself.  Islam exists only to perpetuate itself.  Islam is like the cancer of religion.  It is anti-religion.  When we talk of Faith, we refer to a growing trust in a loving God as we know him, when the Muslim speaks of faith he speaks of trust in Islam itself (since God cannot be known in Islam).  When we pray it is an intimate and personal communication with our Creator, when a Muslim prays it is communal and a rote formula.  They all pray the same prayers at the same time facing the same direction while doing the same movements.  These prayers serve only to cement communal solidarity and provide no intimacy between man and God.  When we worship God we adore His beauty, are thankful for his love, and express our gratitude.  In Islam worship is defined as obedience to Islam.

Islam is not a religion as we understand religion.  Islam has more in common with communism and totalitarian government systems than it does with religion.  What makes Islam unique is that it does contain some primitive spiritual elements.  Islam should not be given religious protection in the West, it does not qualify as a religion, nor does it merit such protection.  Islam has nothing positive to contribute to our society.  Just as in Europe, we are going to see Muslims press for their laws to become the laws of our land, and they have already begun by suppressing criticism of Islam.  Considering the effect that Muslims have in society, we have every right to critically analyze Islam.  Islam is clearly a threat to our way of life, our culture, and our safety.  If we continue to classify Islam as a religion and give it the full protection and benefits religions receive in America, we will be helpless to contain it and it will continue to grow and spread.
