The current conflict between Islam and the West — from human rights issues in Muslim countries, to anti-Western violence by radical Muslims, to their campaigns against liberal lifestyle and ethos and for instituting Sharia law in Western countries — should be seen not as separate from the historical Islam-West conflicts. Theologically, Islam was born to create a global Islamic state governed by laws of the Quran and Sunnah, i.e. Sharia. But most Muslims understand that the age-old campaign for the imposition of Sharia law through violent means in the West is unrealistic under current circumstances. However, current demographic trends suggest that Muslims would become — resulting from high birthrates and their increasing influx from overpopulated Muslim countries amidst decline in the native population — the dominant religious group in many Western countries by the middle of this century. The current ratio of Muslim to non-Muslim birthrate is 3:1 in Europe; Muslims constitute only 10% of the population in France, but 30% of the youths under the age of 20 are Muslims. Lewis predicted in 2004 that ‘Current trends show Europe will have a Moslem majority by the end of the 21st century at the latest… Europe will be part of the Arabic West, of the Maghreb.’
With the Muslim population growing in leaps and bounds, the campaign for instituting Sharia laws, and, therefore, Islamic governance in Western countries will, in all likelihood, intensify over the coming decades. Whether or not would this campaign succeed remains to be seen. If it does, Islam will overcome its long-standing hurdle to Islamize the globe resolutely held back by the West for so many centuries.
Death Fatwa is an Islamic religio-judicial ruling, based on Sharia law, calling for the death of those, who oppose or criticize Islam or Prophet Muhammad, which is deemed a capital crime in Islam publishable by death. There have been series of death fatwas by Islamic clerics and politicians in recent years and decades, the latest being against American makers of the film “Innocence of Muslims”, which amounts to calling for death of someone for practicing Freedom of Speech, which is one’s Human Rights in Western Constitutions and the UN Charter.
Is Allah real? Well there is no physical evidence of God, but billions of people are convinced that God exists. So if not by physical evidence, then why are they convinced? There are many reasons that people use to justify their religious beliefs, similar to the way they justify any beliefs. I’ll be focusing on the reasons that Muslims use.

Islam survives only by maintaining a noble and sacred aura surrounding Muhammad's person and character, which Muslims do via unbridled lying and deception to hide the truths of Muhammad's life and even by terror. When the sacred aura is dismantled through true depiction of Muhammad life in movies, Islam implodes with it... And the countdown to that has started....
Once again black smoke in the sky (from burning U.S. embassies), another episode of loss of innocent human lives, and destruction of world peace. Caused by who? No doubt, and unsurprisingly, by Muslims.
A movie trailer was uploaded on Youtube from the U.S., which showed how Muhammad falsely created his religion, Islam, how he used to kill people in the name of his made-up God, and how he lusted for women and sex.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called the movie, Innocence of Muslims, "disgusting and reprehensible", "inflammable and despicable"?
Is that so? I guess it is. After watching the movie, I too found it disgusting, despicable, reprehensible and offensive. Although this is no academy award winning movie to say the least, the acts of Muhammad as seen in the movie are indeed horrifying. The only thing Clinton didn't probably realize is that the movie, disgusting and horrifying as it is, is a rather a true portrayal of the life of Prophet Muhammad, a monster of history.
Given recent events in the Islamic World, such as attacks on American Embassies and other American interests, and the tragic death of American diplomats in Libya and soldiers in Afghanistan, you will soon hear a rising chorus of voices asking: What went wrong with our policy in the Middle East and North Africa? The answer is: American policy toward the Islamic world is simply inherently flawed and never had the slightest chance of success from the start. So we are not surprised about its failure as we see happening.
One can rarely understand the great triumph that can be achieved through freedom and liberty. The case of America is the finest example of this. In our freedom documents (Constitution), we can see secularism, pluralism, recognition of the age-old yearnings of men for liberty and dignity, a set of guarantee for the protection of individual rights against abuse and the reservation in the people of the ultimate power to their form of government by democratic procedures.

Recently, a film on the Prophet Muhammad was circulated in the Internet provoking furious ongoing protests in the Islamic world. Setting aside the Hollywoodian style of such blockbusters, let us see why it provokes a jiadist outrage in the non-Muslim world. Was Muhammad a true messenger of God or was it all a myth?

Muslims have turned Lebanon, once a Christian-majority nation, into an Islamic state by murdering, converting and driving away the Christians through persecution and terror. In Egypt today, incidents of oppression, torture and murder of Christians, demolishing their businesses and churches, and kidnapping and raping Christian women have become a regular feature. Christians of Nigeria have become the most horrible victims of Islamic jihad in recent years. This should give a clear idea about how the Hindus, Christians, Buddhists and other non-Muslim groups would be treated in Islamic countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan. Presently, the oppression of the Hindus in Pakistan, abduction of minor girls and forcibly converting them to Islam, raping them or forcibly marrying to Muslim thugs, have become commonplace, attracting the global attention.
The Arabic newspaper Lebanon News is reporting that Muslim protesters, who stormed the American Embassy in Libya in reaction to the Muhammad movie, The Innocence of Muslims, actually raped Ambassador Christopher Stevens, before killing him.
There are many reasons Ex-Muslims have for not going public. For some, they fear retaliation because Islam instructs Muslims to kill apostates. For others, they are concerned that Muslims in their communities will gossip about them. And for some it’s about wanting to teach their kids morals while believing that religion is only way to teach morality. I'll explain why these last two ideas are wrong, and how they are both caused by another much more general problem that applies to all people, not just Ex-Muslims.
As the United States observed the commemoration of the tragic 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people in America, a massive mob of Muslims attacked the US Embassy in Egypt – chanting "We are all Osama" – referring to the al-Qaeda leader, who masterminded the 9/11 attacks.
9/11 may soon be regarded as a proud event for Islam in modern history. As things have progressed over the past 11 years since the 9/11 attacks, it's just a matter of time before the Statue of Liberty in the USA will be replaced by a Statue of Osama bin Laden. Millions of Muslims may be pouring into New York on every September 11 to pray for the perished 9/11 attackers as well as to celebrate their conquest of America.
Aasma Riaz: "Thank you so much for your book "Islamic Jihad" and showing me the "Big Picture". For 7-8 days, I was glued to your book, absorbing so much information that I did not know existed. You have crisply covered so much in your book and quoted historical references extensively. I am just overwhelmed with different emotions after reading your book..., a priceless tome."
