Islam teaches its followers to “embrace death and the culture of martyrdom” (public exhortation by Abu Hamza, UK Islamic cleric). A religion that encourages martyrs via rewards in heaven worships death. Muslims are currently engaged in 90% of the fighting going on around the world, and virtually all terrorists globally have been Muslim, so the connection can be safely made. The scripture and culture permits, even demands, violence. So-called “moderate” Muslims literally have to change the true teachings of Islam.
Does this culture of death affect the majority of Muslims, rather than just a small radical subset? Is this fundamental reading of the word shared by the majority? The answer must be yes, that is their belief. Fundamentalist Christians believe in the in-errant nature of biblical scripture. Despite the somewhat disconcerting early commandments to the Jews to acquire territory and smite the enemy in the Old Testament, there are no ongoing day-to-day commandments to kill, conquer, subjugate, to behead all non-believers. Christianity truly is a religion of peace in principle, whatever its followers may choose to do, while Islam is a religion of harsh commandments that followers would have to essentially disobey in order to become a religion of peace.
Evangelism in Islam is called “dawah” and it does not imply peaceful proselytization but violent takeover of allegiances and local and national governments. Dawah is part of Jihad, a war for the forcible submission of the individual to Islam. To Muhammed, “War is Deception.”
The notion that lying is a part of Islam is true, though contradictory. Surah 2:42 “and cover not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth when you know what it is” implies a standard of honesty. There is an impression that lying is permitted only to protect life, when the Muslim is in danger of or under pressure of persecution. But in Jihad, all is permitted. And even in normal living, deception is easily justified.
Permitted and encouraged dishonesty (kithman concealment and taqiya dissimulation) in the pursuit of Muslim objectives is a hallmark of Mohammedan Islam. Purposeful exaggeration in talking about Islam is a core element in the deception of the West, whose open principles are based on completely different standards. When a Christian teaches his faith, honesty and forthrightness is assumed, a sharing of light and truth. Trust is involved, and a culture of trust is ill-equipped to deal with a culture of deception. That deception is not there to bring the truth to light, but to hide it. Sinfulness or error is therefore not admitted nor confessed, but concealed. Taqiya is sometimes characterized as “diplomacy,” which again emphasizes the modification of truth in order to reach an objective. All dishonesty is permitted in speech, even denial of their own faith, so long as the heart continues to serves Allah. Christians on the other hand are taught not to renounce their faith even under duress, for Christians, persecution is their form of martyrdom.
The danger of a future world dominated by Islamofascism is palpable and visible all around the globe. Sharia law promoteswomen being treated as property under virtual slavery.
