It is not politically correct to speak certain things.

There is evil in this world.

Not all religions are the same.

Most Muslims are truly good people.

Islam itself is evil.

Evil is always packaged in beauty (The Five Pillars of Islam). 

The Issue and its Facts

Mohammed, 570-632AD, the founder of Islam

  • Born in Mecca, Arabia,
  • Orphaned at an early age, raised by his uncle, worked as a merchant,
  • Described as a sweet man: dignified, seldom laughed, delicate, nervous, impressionable, given to melancholy, pensive and illiterate, but with a distinguished ancestry,
  • Married at age 25 to Khadija, a 40 year old wealthy widow with several children,
  • A “seeker” genuinely searching after God,
  • He studied Judaism, Christianity and the pagan religions of Arabia,
  • Occasionally retreated to a cave for several days of seclusion and prayer,
  • Remained monogamous, Khadija bore him daughters but no sons,
  • At age 40, he reported that he was visited by the Archangel Gabriel and received his first revelation from God, many more visions followed,
  • Khadija believed-in and encouraged him,
  • Three years later Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly,
  • Proclaiming that “God is One”, that complete “surrender” to Him (Islam) is the only way acceptable to God, and that he was a prophet and messenger of God,
  • Muhammad gained few followers early on, and met hostility from some Meccans,
  • Khadija died in 619AD,
  • After 12 years of struggle and persecution in Mecca, Mohammad and his followers (approximately 70 of them) moved 200 miles north to the town of Yathrib (later to be named Medina),
  • These last 10 years of Mohammed’s life are tell-tale,
  • His migration to Medina is known as the “Hijra” and marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar (622AD),
  • He had trouble early on feeding his followers,
  • He then authorized the raiding of caravans (violence, murder and theft),
  • He defined rules for dividing up the spoils of war (80% for the raiders, 20% Mohammed),
  • He authorized the destruction of three Jewish villages,
  • Mohammed planned 65 military campaigns (i.e. caravan raids and battles) and personally led 27 of them,
  • He took on ten wives (one eight years old) and two concubines,
  • He was said to have two big indulgences – women and power,
  • He condoned the assassination of three poets who had mocked him,
  • He condoned the practice of vendetta and revenge (already in the Arab culture),
  • He approved of the killing of anyone (including sons and daughters) who rejected Islam,
  • He broke a treaty with his main enemy, the Quraish tribe.
  • He rebuilt the Kaaba which was originally dedicated to a pagan idol.
  • He conceived the five pillars of the Islam: Submission, Prayer (5x daily), alms giving, Fasting (Ramadan), and the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca),
  • He died in 632A.D. at the age of 63.

“…and, you will know them by their fruits.”

What are the fruits of Islam? Arabs and Muslims are generally considered among the most hospitable people in the world – exceedingly gracious and charming. In the 11th century Islam and the Arabs led the world is virtually every professional endeavor. Since then it has been all downhill. For the last eight centuries, Islam has produced backward medieval societies with stifled economies, considerable poverty and largely illiterate citizens. Its governments are invariably monarchies or dictatorships holding power through repression, terror and Sharia law.

Sharia law is the legal code of Islam that stones prostitutes, beheads adulterers and homosexuals and allows polygamy, slavery and honor killings (even today). Religious intolerance is the norm of today’s Islam.

Power, might-makes-right, is the antithesis of rule-of-law (America).

Terror is the efficient “weapon of choice” for power seekers.

A little knowledge of religion is necessary. Compare and contrast Mohammad with Jesus. The contrast tells you everything you need to know about Mohammad and Islam.

Over a billion beautiful people caught up in the biggest lie of all times – can it be so?

The Liberal Position

All religions are the same. It is politically incorrect to mix religion and politics. Religion and the affairs of State are separated by an impenetrable wall. We are an enlightened and scientific people who do not coddle superstition and witchcraft. As intellectuals we dismiss all religion as “adult fairy tales.”

The Conservative Position

We cherish freedom and self-government and pity monarchy and dictatorships. Religious tolerance is one of our noblest virtues. Rule-of-law, by the People, is the only power we will accept. We will never submit to might-makes-right or religious intolerance.

Right and wrong have been well defined in our Judeo-Christian heritage. Multiculturalism is a discredited loser’s game. We have natural rights to life, liberty, property, the pursuit of happiness…)[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container][fusion_builder_container backgroundcolor=”#333333″ backgroundimage=”” backgroundrepeat=”no-repeat” backgroundposition=”left top” backgroundattachment=”scroll” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_preview_image=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_opacity=”0.5″ video_mute=”yes” video_loop=”yes” fade=”no” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderstyle=”solid” paddingtop=”18px” paddingbottom=”9px” paddingleft=”0px” paddingright=”0px” menu_anchor=”” equal_height_columns=”no” hundred_percent=”no” class=”” id=””][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][fusion_text]
