The intention of this article is to provoke a much-needed debate on the nature of a phenomenon called "Islamic Terrorism." Most people in the United States assume that the phenomenon called "Islamic Terrorism" started after the 11 September 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.
Actually, the world was in a deep coma about the nature of Islamic Terrorism before the events of 11 September. In some cases, people still refuse to accept that there is such reality called "Islamic Terrorism." However, this phenomenon did not start on or about 11 September 2001. This event was conceived and put into action fourteen hundred years earlier across the hot, sandy deserts of Arabia.
The word "Islam" means "submission." One may ask submission to what or whom? A Muslim is a person who is obedient to the will of "Allah." According to the words of the Prophet of Islam, Allah is the author of the holy book of Quran, thus a Muslim is a person who must do what the book says to do. If he or she does not follow the words of the Quran, then he or she is not considered to be a Muslim.
Muslims insist that the almighty Lord of all living thing is synonymous with what is known in Arabic as "Allah." Muslims confess that every word in the holy book of Quran is the word of Allah. It contains 114 Surahs (chapters) and more than 6,000 verses. Ironically, the greatest enemy of Islam is this very book, which Muslims vow to be free of errors.
Islamic scholars proudly state that the Quran is unrivalled in its recording and preservation. They proudly say that the holy book has remained unchanged to the letter -- even after fourteen hundred years. However, they won't allow any one to question any part of the teaching. Questioning any part of the holy book will result in death. As we have witnessed, the Islamic zealots do not tolerate opinions contrary to their own. For Quran's teachings you may go to:
Nowadays, we all hear from the Muslim apologists that the holy religion of Islam has been hijacked by the militant Muslims. Even some friends in the United States utter the same thing.
Muslims keep repeating that Islam means "peace," something my friends in the states say as well. In reality though, Islam means war. It is through so many wars that Islam established itself as another religion. It is through fear, intimidation, and indoctrination of innocent people that Islam has made its loyal follower to adhere to this ideology of hate. It is through sacrifices and the killing of innocent people that Islam has lasted as long as it has. It is with the sword of Islam that people became Muslims.
There is no such phenomenon called good Muslims or bad Muslims. Good Muslims are nominal-Muslims, the ones who have never read the holy book of Quran and do not understand or do not want to understand the nature of Islam. They merely were born into a Muslim family. Those who think Islam has been hijacked by the bad Muslims are not true Muslims. Bad Muslims are those who execute the words of Allah. Therefore, the bad Muslims are the true believers who follow the path of the prophet of Islam. In other words, the Islamic terrorists are the true sons and daughters of the Islamic faith.
Understanding what "Islamic Terrorism" is and identifying the signs or association those who are or may become Islamic terrorists, may help the society to detect and prevent or capture the terrorists before they commit crimes against the innocent civilians. A better understanding of the true nature of Islam will alarm people of the dangers of "Islamic Terrorism."
Islam rewards those who are willing to die for "Allah." "Everybody hates death, fears death. Only those, the believers who know the life after death and the reward after death, would be the ones who would be seeking death.
Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them. If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them. Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to hell. Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. The holy Quran Everyone eventually will face death. However, the destination after
death is not the same. Those who believed in Allah --and followed what Allah's messenger said-- will be in paradise. In other words, those who commit crimes against humanity, murder the infidels, rape little girls or boys, burn the cities of disbelievers, hijack airplanes to fly them into buildings, and bringing down the towers and casting terror in the lives of people, will spend their eternal rest in heaven. To top it all off, 72 virgin women will greet them at the gate with a bottle of French wine.
For those who deviate from executing the words of Allah, an eternal blazing Fire (Hell) will be awaiting them. In other words, every good person, kind person, giving person and innocent person on earth will taste eternal fire.
Muslims still insist that "Allah" is the same as the Eternal God, Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most
Compassionate, Most Merciful, yet he needs blood and lots of it. Since its inception fourteen hundred years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literally butchered with the sword of Islam. Some may argue that all religions at one point in time have committed crimes against humanity. That may be so, but none of the existing world religions' foundations have been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent victims. Islam lives, breaths and grows on blood. Once we take away this red element from Islam, Islam will vanish completely. Islam cannot possibly live in the hearts and minds of its believers. Islam needs to shed the blood of the infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. Islam is about world domination. It is utterly part of being Muslims.
Islam is worse than a plague, worse than leprosy, worse than hunger and famine, which cause bodily damage to humans. Islam slowly, like a canker, gnaws at the soul and the spirit. Islam stops your brain from thinking, and empties out your love and kindness for others. Islam will turn you into a killing machine. We may be able to cure the plague, leprosy and other diseases, but we are unable to deal with Islamists. We can't cure them with medical technology. We can't take them to a doctor to see where it hurts. Once you become an Islamist, no earthly medicines are able to cure you. True Muslims literally have turned into walking missiles.
You can't reason with people blinded by hate. You can't argue with people blinded by Islamic faith. Islam hates the power of the
individual. Islam hates the achievements of women. Islam hates progress. Islam hates the religious freedom of others. Islam hates the pre-Islamic heritage of other nations. Islam hates the light of truth. Islam is against free-will and hates democracy, liberty and justice for all. Islam simply loves to eat you alive. That is what Islam does and that is what Islam is. Worshipping that? NEVER!
Citizens of the United States are slowly waking up from a long winter sleep on this issue. However, there are still millions who are
extremely naïve about the dangers of Islamic terrorism. Those in the states are good people; they are sympathetic people; they are giving people; they like to see the goodness in human beings and for that, they unconsciously refuse to believe that in a faith -- teachings can make wild animals out of its believers.
The greatest threat facing the United States today is its own ignorance about Islam. Until citizens of the United States understand the threat of Islam to its society and on its own soil -- people will continue to die in these sporadic attacks. Until there is a true understanding of this faith and a means to control it, we, along with other people will continue to die as a result of its teaching. The threat of Islam is real. Until the United States understands that all violent Islamic fundamentalist groups, including al-Qaeda and Hezbollah and others are true Muslims and wish to kill all non-believers, we will continue to be at their mercy.
No, Islam has not been hijacked by the Islamic militants. The cult of Islam has hijacked humanity for almost 14 centuries. Until we digest this and do something to circumvent the trend, our risk and exposure grows greater in between each attack.
