“The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mohamet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud or by force.” —John Quincy Adams, 1829
Preserving Western Freedom by Opposing Political Islam
Parents need to know what their children are learning about Islam in school these days. The news is not good. Islam is generally being taught as a religion of peace. And students are often being required to learn the Five Pillars of Islam and to recite the Shahada, the faith declaration that makes one a Muslim if said before two Muslim witnesses. And, besides all of this—bad as it is—students are being taught that the Crusades were an unwarranted aggression against a peaceful Muslim world and are also learning to doubt whether the Holocaust ever happened. This is anti-Christian and anti-Semitic indoctrination, and its roots are to be found in the propagandistic notions of the Islamic world. The movement to Islamize American schools, by teaching the religious tenets of Islam to American students, under the auspices of the Common Core Curriculum, is reprehensible. But what else is to be expected, given the fact that so much of the funding for Common Core came from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Libya? (Read more here.)
While many schools are now encouraging daylong, or even weeklong, experiences in Islamic learning—including days when students are being asked to engage in Islamic role-playing in their dress and behavior—equivalent activities for Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, or Hindu learning are not being offered. Nor should there be any such offerings. In keeping with the language of the United States Constitution—“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”—Americans still believe that, while students are allowed the freedom to express their religious views and exercise their conscientious beliefs in state-run schools, the state is to have no role in the official sponsorship of any religion. In public schools, it is permissible to teach the history of different religions, but it is not allowable to proselytize on behalf of any religion.
Islam Kills Freedom
One of the terrible truths about Islam is that it kills freedom wherever it takes root. Islam is expansionist, and its adherents—once they Islamize a region of the world in numbers great enough to control the governmental policy-making apparatus—impose their totalitarian ideology on all others within their political control. This Islamic modus operandi of literally forcing people to lose their freedom and submit to a Muhammadan way of life—the root word for Islam, al-Silm, means “submission” or “surrender”—enforces a fascist philosophy that brooks no opposition. Questioning Islam is often considered apostasy—abandonment of, or conversion out of the faith—and is punishable by death. For this reason, among others, the political ideology of Islam must be exposed and fought against vigorously, lest the future of America become a totalitarian one.
Islam: Is It Really a Religion?
Islam is not a religion in the sense of being a non-coercive, constructive philosophy based upon a Golden Rule to be universally applied to all people across humanity. Islam is chauvinistic and destructive, advocating deeds that no Golden-Rule religion allows. The reason this is true is because Muhammad, the religion’s founder, is, to this day, considered to be the Uswa Hasana—the perfect example to follow. In Koran 68:4, Allah says to Muhammad, “And lo! thou art of sublime morals.” So wherein lies the problem?
The problem is Muhammad himself, a warlord who used violence and assassination, as well as banditry and warfare, to achieve wealth, conquest, and Islamization. Muhammad endorsed using women as sex objects, giving them few legal rights. Muhammad was an enslaver and a pedophile who married his child-bride Aisha at six lunar years of age and had sex with her at the age of nine lunar years. (A lunar year is 354 days in length.) Muhammad also lied, and even broke entire treaties, to advance Islamic causes. And, although Muhammad would punish the murder of a fellow Muslim, there was no penalty for the murder of a non-Muslim—a Kafir. In fact, Muhammad believed that killing a Kafir in the act of jihad was the highest form of worship. According to a hadith in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Hadith 2785, the following insight into Islam is offered: “Narrated Abu Huraira: A man came to Allah’s Messenger and said, ‘Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad [in reward].’ He [Muhammad] replied, ‘I do not find such a deed.’” (Read more here.)
Islamic Worldwide Hegemony
Islam will prosecute the jihad—both overtly and covertly—until the entire world is brought under the banner of Islam. Islam erases non-Muslim culture and history, destroying entire museums full of relics and artwork that are considered jahiliyya—that is, not guided by Islamic inspiration. A commitment to the Islamic worldview is a commitment to a dogma of genocide, murder, and the destruction of all that is non-Islamic.
Because of the threat Islam poses to your, your children’s, and your grandchildren’s lives, liberty, and pursuits of happiness, it is important to enlighten others as to the dangers posed by Islam, we must be able to break the ideology down into its component parts and explain how they all work together to destroy safety, freedom, and joy in the pursuit of slavish submission to Allah.
