Islam, by the commands of Allah and the Prophet, is engaged in a perpetual battle with Western civilization, which can end only with Islam's total defeat or complete victory.
["Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from its readiness to fit in with our instinctual wishful impulses." -- Sigmund Freud]
A religious war started a long, long time ago, between two civilizations, namely the civilization based on Biblical views and the one based on Koranic views. And this must be clear to all. So, let’s take a look deep into it.
Trusting GOD is the most reasonable thing which comes to a human mind. How is your organized religion different from Catholics, Hindus, Jews and Muslims?
A lie is a lie! And, religion is based on these four pillars:
Look around and observe the followers of Islam to understand what they are doing now and what they did in the past?
Islam’s message is simple and clear.
Hate and kill... Hate and kill… Hate and kill…
‘Hate and Kill’ kuffar as well as each other; also subjugate and degrade women by putting them in harems and by marrying underage girls. If someone disagrees, then kill him/her. Look at Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, etc. (indeed, in almost all Islamic countries); the same message: Hate and Kill.
There is no fundamental Islam
"Fundamentalism" is a word that came from the heart of the Christian religion. It means faith that goes by the word of the Bible. Fundamental Christianity, or going by the Bible, does not mean going around and killing people?
There is no fundamental Islam! There is only Islam period.
The question is how the Koran is interpreted?
All of a sudden we see that the greatest interpreters of Islam are politicians in the West. They pretend to know better than speakers and imams in the mosques, who deliver terrible sermons against anything that is either Christian or Jewish (kafirs). Western politicians tell us that there is good Islam and bad Islam. They know even how to differentiate between the two, except that none of them know how to read an Arabic word.
The Language of Islam
You see so much is covered by a politically correct language that the truth, in fact, has been lost forever. For example, when we speak about Islam in the West, we try to use our own language and terminologies. We speak about Islam in terms of democracy and fundamentalism, in terms of parliamentarianism, and all such kinds of terms. Doing this, which we do from our own dictionary, is like a cricket reporter describing a cricket game in baseball terms. We cannot use the language of one culture or civilization for another. For Islam, you've got to use the language of Islam.
Driving Principles of Islam
Let me explain the principles that drive the religion of Islam. Every Muslim has to acknowledge the fact that, there is only one God. But, it's not enough to say that there is only one God! A Muslim has to acknowledge the fact that, there is one God and Muhammad is his prophet. These are the fundamentals of Islam; without them, one cannot be a Muslim. But beyond that, Islam is a civilization. It is a religion that gave, first and foremost, a wide and unique legal system that engulfs the individual, society and nations at large with rules of behavior. If you are a Muslim, you have to behave according to the rules of Islam as set down in the Koran and are very different than the teachings of the Bible.
Let me explain the difference here. The Bible is the creation of the spirit of a nation over a very, very long period, if we talk from the point of view of the scholar (and let me remain scholarly here); but, there is only one thing that is important in the Bible: it leads to salvation.
It leads to salvation in two ways.
In Judaism, it leads to national salvation, not just a nation that wants to have a state, but a nation that also wants to serve their God. That's the idea behind the Hebrew text of the Bible. While the New Testament, which took from the Hebrew Bible, moves its adherents toward a personal salvation with God. So, we have these two kinds of salvation, which, from time to time, meet each other in respects. But the ‘keyword’ here is salvation
Secondly, there is another point in the Bible, which is highly important. This is the idea that man was created in the image of God. Therefore, you don't just walk around and obliterate the image of God in question, followers of the Bible have historically slaughtered in the name of God. Yet, honoring the image of God and the hope of salvation are the two basic fundamentals in these religions.
The Essence of Islam
Now let's move to the essence of Islam. In contrast to the essence of Biblical faiths discussed in the previous section, Islam was born with the idea that it should rule the world. I can quote here in Arabic, but there is no point in quoting Arabic, so let me quote a verse in English. "Allah sent Mohammed with the true religion so that it should rule over all other religions" (see Quran 2:191-94, 8:39).
The idea is not to turn the whole world population to Muslims right away, but to subdue it under the rule of Islam, initially! Muhammad founded Islam (632 CE), within eight years (by 640 CE), the core of the Islamic empire was created. The rules that were taken from the Koran and from the Pagan Arab traditions, but credited to the Prophet of Islam, were translated into a real legal Islamic System. The Jews and Christians could live under Islam provided they paid poll-tax (Jaziyah) and accepted Islamic superiority with willing humiliation (Q 9:29), i.e. they had to suffer humiliation in their everyday life.
Prophet Mohammed Held That All the Biblical Prophets Were Muslims
Muhammad did accept the existence of all the Biblical prophets before him. However, he also said that all these prophets were Muslims. Abraham was a Muslim. In fact, Adam himself was the first Muslim. Isaac and Jacob and David and Solomon and Moses and Jesus were all Muslims as well, and all of them preached messages similar to the Koran. Therefore, world history is Islamic history because all the heroes of history were Muslims. Can we believe that?
Furthermore, Muslims accept the fact that each of these prophets brought with him some kind of a revelation: Moses brought the Taurat (Torah), and Jesus brought the Ingeel (the Evangelion or Gospel).
Bible vs. Koran
Why then is the Bible not similar to the Koran, one may ask? Indeed, the Jews and Christians of Muhammad’s days did the same question, and Muhammad’s answer was: they had forged their holy books! Had these not been changed and forged, these books would have been identical to the Koran.
Nevertheless, the holy laws are very clear: the Jews and the Christians have no rights, whatsoever, to independent existence!!! They can live only under complete subjugation to Islam.
Islamic Rule and Jihad
What happens if the Jews and Christians don't want to live under the same rules of Islam? Then, Muslims must fight them and this fighting is called Jihad! Jihad means ‘holy war against the Kafirs (unbelievers), who do not want to accept (submit) the Islamic superior rule! They may be Jews; they may be Christians. While Jihad against Polytheists (also atheists etc.) demands their complete annihilation! For now, given that not too many Polytheists left, especially not in the Middle East, their Jihad is mainly directed against the Jews and Christians.
A few days ago, I received a pamphlet that was distributed in the by the Talibans. In it, Osama bin Laden calls for the ‘Islamic Jihad against America as the leader of the Christian world, not because America is the supporter of Israel, but because Americans are desecrating Arabia and Islam with their filthy feet! There are Americans in Arabia were no Christians should be’. In this pamphlet, there is not a single word about Israel, but the Kafirs that are desecrating the home of Islam’s prophet.
The Two Houses
The Koran sees the world as divided into two houses: the ‘Dar al-Islam’ or the ‘House of Peace’ that has come under Islamic rule, and the ‘Dar al-Harb’ or ‘House of War’ (i.e. non-Islamic world) that is yet to come under the rule. of Islam through any means needed There is a division of the world which is very clear here. Every single person, who studied Islam, knows this cardinal principle of Islam.
Note the term, “House of War” meaning that Muslims must be in perpetual war with the non-Muslim world until been conquered and subjugated to Islam. A civilization war must continue until the entire world comes under Islamic rule. This is the normative view in Islam. Why? Because, Allah says it's so in the Koran.
God has sent Mohammed with the true religion in order that, the Islamic truth will overcome all other Kafir religions.
Within the Islamic vision of this world, there are rules that must strictly govern the lives of Muslims. There are four major schools of Islamic law, although differences among them, in essence, are very little.
Countries of the Islamic world have favored one or a mix of these schools of Islamic law. The strictest school is called Hanbali, implemented mainly in Saudi Arabia.
If the Koran speaks about war, then it's war
There are various perspectives in Islam with different interpretations over the centuries. There were good people that were very enlightened in Islam, who tried to understand things differently. They even brought traditions from the mouth of the prophet that women and children should not be killed in war. These more liberal streams do exist, but there is one thing that is very important for us to remember. The Wahabi School of Law is very severe, and this school is behind most of the terrorist powers today. Even if we talk about the existence of other schools of Islamic law, when we're talking about fighting against the Jews and Christians, a world led by America, the Wahabi School is the main instigator of that war today.
Islam and Territory
The Islamic civilization created one very important, fundamental rule about territory. Any territory that comes under Islamic rule cannot be de-Islamized. Even if, at one time or another, the Kafirs take back, or the enemy takes over, a conquered Islamic territory, it is still considered Islamic, and a relentless war must be waged with utmost urgency to bring it under Islam. This is why whenever you hear about the Arab/Israeli conflict, you constantly hear about occupied Islamic territory! There are other aspects to the conflict, but territory is highly important.
Islam sees the Christian civilization not only as a religious opponent, but also as a dam stopping Islam from achieving its final goal for which it was created.
Islam was born to create an army of God, the army of Allah. Every single Muslim is a soldier in this army. Every single Muslim that dies in wars, fought for spreading Islam is a Shaheed (martyr), no matter how he dies in battle, because [and this is very important] this is an ‘eternal war’ between the two civilizations. It's not a war that stops. This war is there, because it was created by Allah. Islam must be the ruler. This is a war that will not end.
Islam and Peace
Peace in Islam can exist only within the Islamic world; peace can only be between Muslims.
With the non-Muslim world or the non-Muslim opponents, there can be only one solution: a ceasefire until Moslems can gain more power. It is an eternal war until the end of days! Peace can only come if the Islamic side wins. The two civilizations can only have periods of ceasefire. And this idea of ceasefire is based on a very important historical precedent, which, incidentally, late Yasser Arafat referred to when he spoke in Johannesburg after he signed the Oslo agreement with Israel.
A few weeks after signing the Oslo Agreement, Arafat, faced with criticism from Muslims for signing a peace agreement with the Jewish state, told a congregation in a mosque in Johannesburg that "Do you think I signed something with the Jews, which is contrary to the rules of Islam? That's not so. I'm doing exactly what the prophet Mohammed did."
Here’s Arafat was pointing a prophetic precedent, a Sunnah, namely the "story of Hudaybiya”. When Muhammad arrived in Mecca with some 1500 fighters in 628 to capture the city, he faced a stronger and determined Meccan opponent, and to avoid a suicidal confrontation, he signed 10-year peace agreement, the so-called Treaty of Hudaibiyya, with the Meccans. But then he quickly strengthened his army to 10,000 soldiers within two years, he threw away the treaty, marched toward Mecca and captured it. This treacherous act of the prophet, in Islamic jurisdiction, later became a legal precedent, which states that Muslims are only allowed to make peace with infidels for a maximum of 10 years. And secondly, at the first instance that you are able, you must throw away the treaty and renew the jihad.
Peace agreement or ceasefire in Islam is only a temporary tactical choice in a situation of weakness or difficulty; it can’t be permanent.
Signing the Oslo Peace Accord was an essential lesson for Israel. And Israelis has taken over 50 years to understand that they cannot ever have [permanent] peace with Muslims. It will take another 50 years or more for the Western world to understand that they have found themselves in a state of war with the Islamic civilization that is virile and strong.
This should be understood: When we talk about war and peace, we are not talking in Belgium, French, English, or German terms. We are talking about war and peace in Islamic terms!
Wherever You Have Islam, You Will Have War
The reason that we have wars in Yugoslavia and other places, where the Muslims live in minority, is because of the nature of Islam that pits Muslim, as explained already, in a perpetual state of war with infidels for establishing Islamic dominance/rule. And we saw, they succeeded in establishing Islamic rule in Kosovo; more such successes for them are on the way. Wherever you have Islam, you will have war. It grows out of the attitude of Islamic civilization.
Why are the poor people in the Philippines being killed for? What's happening between Pakistan and India?
Furthermore, there is another fact that must be remembered. The Islamic world has not only the attitude of an ‘open war’, but there's also another: war by infiltration, which is currently occurring in the West! While the Western world not paying enough attention, Islam is fast building its power there. What happened in America and to the Twin Towers is not something that came from the outside! And, if America and the West at large don't wake up soon enough, they will, one day, find themselves in difficult, a potentially losing war with its fastest-growing Muslim infiltrators.
The End of Days
Biblical doctrines see the ‘end of days’ as having 'peace between nations, not just one nation, but between all nations. People will not have any more need for weapons and nature will be changed -a beautiful end of days and the kingdom of God on earth’ (Isaiah) and all sources of evil obliterated. But, Islam sees the ‘end of days’ as having world that is totally Islamic, completely Muslim and under the rule of Islam—complete and final victory of Islam! The Jews, Christians, Polytheists, and Unbelievers will be utterly destroyed.
I’m quoting from Islamic sources about how the Last Days will come:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him… [Bukhari Book 041, Number 6984].
Is There a Possibility of End to This War Dance?
The question which the Jews in Israel are asking is what will happen to their country? Is there a possibility to end this war dance?
As far as Islamic doctrine is concerned, the answer is, "no”; and as far as reality is concerned, ‘not in the foreseeable eyes of the Islamic future!"
We can only reach a situation, where we may have relative quiet for a few years. But Muslims, the establishment of Israel is a reversal of Islam’s history. First, Islamic territory was taken away by Jews. You should know by now that this can never be accepted by Muslim. So, everyone, who thinks Tel Aviv is safe, is making a grave mistake! The territory, which was once dominated by Islamic rule, has now become a non-Muslim state (Apes & Pigs Land). Non-Muslims can’t have independent rule of their own in Islam. But Jews have taken away Islamic land, and then, have created an independent state. It is anathema in Islam!
The worse is Jewish Israel is ruling over a sizable population of Muslims. It is unthinkable (for a Muslim!!!) that non-Moslems should ever rule over Muslims.
I believe that the Western civilization should hold together and support each other. Whether this will happen or not, I don't know. As Israel finds itself on the frontlines of this war, it needs help from its sister civilization. It needs the help of America and Europe.
