Islam is a Deception
I sometimes wonder if anyone is listening when I write about Islam. I have already been accused of perpetuating hatred and misunderstanding of the “true Islam.” I am not trying to disparage the religion of Islam. I have questions about it, and I went looking for answers. I am learning new information all the time and I intend to speak the truth about what I have discovered concerning Islam. I am compelled to do this, but I have to tell you, I am not finding much good. I have searched high and low and I cannot find any fruit upon the tree of Islam. We were attacked repeatedly by radical Islam several times leading up to the events of 9/11 and I make no apologies for my suspicions concerning the radical Muslim motive. We were not attacked by the Belgians, or the Huns, or the Ethiopians; we were attacked by radical Muslims.
Islam complains that Americans are Islamophobic–that we do not do enough to accommodate their culture (a ridiculous claim). Even when their requests are met, they are not satisfied. When Islam decrees that I, a citizen of the United States (and a Christian infidel–a kuffaar), must submit to it or face punishment, aren’t my rights being violated? Does my Constitution not protect my freedom to pursue the religion of my choice? I don’t remember it saying that I could be coerced into submitting to the religion of another foreign nation? How is it justice for a citizen to be held to the redresses of Sharia law when this citizen has already been accorded the Rights our Constitution declares for us–inalienable, God given , Natural Rights.
Why is it that Christianity and Judaism are the suspect elements of society that are said to be the purveyors of injustice and imposition? The Progressive Left and their news media cohorts have devoted enormous energy to the derision of Christians and Jews–belittling our belief in the Bible by referring to it as a collection of fairy tales, while simultaneously ignoring archeological evidence thereof.
Why do many Americans ignore the obvious? Appeasement is, of course, the first road the news media attempts to steer us onto; they go out of their way to put Islam in a better, softer light. As the harbingers of pacifism, they tow the line for groups like CAIR–who proclaim the patronizing slogan “Islam is a religion of peace.” If they just paint a prettier picture, then it helps make it all better, won’t it now?
All of that said, much of my presentation here is audio/visual. I offer the following as the first of several examples of Islam’s ambiguity:

Whitewashing Islam: 20 Errors on 20/20 (ABC News)
Qur’an 48:29 – Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.
Of course I haven’t learned much of anything from the MSM. I have had to scour the internet in search of information about Islam and I have discovered no examples of love, no compassion, no charity. Islam is a theocracy; it is their law. Islamic law declares women to be inferior and they have few rights. I can imagine nothing worse than losing our rule of law to the cancer of Sharia.
The Qur’an declares Muslims are superior to Christians and Jews, who are considered swine and an affront to Allah. Imams are preaching jihad in mosques within the borders of our own country and openly criticizing parents who shield there children from the “love of martyrdom.” Hello? That is barbaric! Any Muslim who might decide to convert to Christianity is subject to extreme punishment–as severe as beheading. Additionally, if you are a Muslim, then Taqiyya (deception for the purpose of advancing the cause of Islam) is your Islamic duty. There are no innocent kuffaar, it is perfectly fine to dupe them for the purposes of honoring Allah. Their placation is a deception.
Sahih al-Bukhari 6922 – Allah’s Messenger said, “If anyone changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.”
All of these things should be alarming and revolting to even the most devout lefty–who is so concerned that Christians are obstructing Gay Marriage they could care less about what Islam might be doing. By the way, homosexuality is illegal under Islamic law and punishable by death. “Religion of peace” … my pale center of gravity!
Qur’an 6:114 – Shall I seek for a judge other than Allah, when He it is Who has sent down to you the Book fully explained?
There are moderate Muslims, but there is not a moderate Islam. Those that say the “true Islam” ignores the violent dictations of the Qur’an are not practicing Islam as dictated by Muhammad. They are the useful idiots who are privately condemned by the fundamentalist Imams, but tolerated for the time being because they perpetuate the illusion that Islam is a “religion of peace.”
Robert Spencer writes about Muslim feminist Musdah Mulia, who blames Muslims for gender inequality and the “misconceptions” that surround Western understanding of Islam. She explains that after growing up in a strict Muslim environment that she traveled to other Muslim nations and realized that “Islam had many faces. It opened my eyes. Some of what my grandfather and the ulema [clerics] had taught me was right but the rest was myth.” She might want to believe it is a myth, but I doubt that ulema will agree with her.
Victor Davis Hanson wrote about the non-existence of Islamophobia in an article titled, “There really isn’t a phenomenon like ‘Islamophobia’”:
“… There really isn’t a phenomenon like “Islamophobia” — at least no more than there was a “Germanophobia” in hating Hitler or “Russophobia” in detesting Stalinism. Any unfairness or rudeness that accrues from the “security profiling” of Middle Eastern young males is dwarfed by efforts of Islamic fascists themselves — here in the U.S., in the U.K., the Netherlands, France, Turkey, and Israel — to murder Westerners and blow up civilians. The real danger to thousands of innocents is not an occasional evangelical zealot or uncouth politician spouting off about Islam, but the deliberately orchestrated and very sick anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism that floods the airways worldwide, emanating from Iran, Lebanon, and Syria, to be sure, but also from our erstwhile “allies” in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.” [...]

Dispatches – Undercover Mosque
There was a great deal to absorb there, but I didn’t see anything that makes me believe they have good intentions for any of us in the Western Hemisphere. They want to usurp the crown and parliament in the UK and make it an Islamic state. They are not happy with just being left alone and keeping to themselves; they want to force the rest of us to live like they do–as in the whole of the world.
So, we have come full circle now back to the realization that America is under attack from two forces: Islam and Progressivism. Islam is a political religion that claims it condemns anyone who politicizes Islam. So when are they going to condemn themselves?
Sahih Muslim 30 – Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”
Again, there are moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam. Many self declared Muslims describe the “true Islam” as a pluralistic, noble and compassionate and tolerant culture. If you have yet to listen to Frank Gaffney’s presentation on the Muslim Brotherhood in America, I strongly suggest you do so. They describe orthodox Islam as mythological, yet as you have seen (or will see) in these videos, that this is simply not the case.
