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.
Muslims are reasonably happy with their fate in the afterlife because, on the judgment day, they do not have to answer Allah’s question: Why you did not believe in Muhammad and his message?
As a young Muslim, I occasionally tested some of my friends and asked them how would they respond if Allah rephrases the question as follows: Why did you believe Muhammad and his claims? Their responses were variable but were always preceded by a period of shock because they never thought of such possibility.

...Ramadan and other serious Islamic scholars, enjoying the benefits of that heritage, are offering Islam as an alternative to the West's loss of faith and excess worldliness. Western leaders, in the name of political correctness, denigrate their own honorable traditions -- both religious and secular. Sensitivity to its past mistakes lingers even after they have been remedied. The many past and present benefits the West has brought to mankind are ignored. Tolerance has lost its true meaning of allowing for all ideas to get an airing. It has been replaced with a definition of tolerance that allows only for ideas that are currently politically correct. How convenient for Tariq Ramadan’s purposes is such a society so guilt-ridden and infected with political correctness that it often stands wide-eyed and accepting of the alternative, absolutist faith that is Islam.
Do you Australian infidels know that you might be paying another extra tax – an Islamic religious tax when you buy products from shops and supermarkets? Do you want to make more informed choices about the products you buy?
I am thankful to you for opening my eyes to see the real Islam. I had almost apostatised from Islam after reading Mr Ali Sina's debate with Mr Ghamdi (Pakistani scholar). I felt Islam was indefensible, all along I knew about issues like sex slaves and slavery, polygyny , subjugated women etc. I tried to keep my faith but all my doubts were like punctures in a big balloon which was patched up with half convincing answers to keep my faith afloat. When I read the realities of Islam, which were supported by Sahih Hadith, my faith bubble burst leaving me shattered.
It is not uncommon to see someone in the neighborhood, who makes the claim that he/she is a Muslim, and proud of it. Sometimes, I see comments on articles in FaithFreedom.org and Islam Watch website, under the nick “Muslim & Proud”. In this article, I try to understand this statement based on a straightforward look at the basic facts found in the Sirat, Hadith, and Qur’an.
A new book has been published in German and English by author Zahid Khan, titled “The Criminal Acts of Prophet Mohammed.” The author demonstrates that Muhammad, instead of being a true Prophet of God, was misguided by his own evil pursuits and ambitions. His success was not due to the depth of his religious insights, but rather due to animating thousands of idled Arabs by the prospect of spoils and sex-slaves on earth and even more virgins and material pleasures in the hereafter.
Allah has ordered Muslim husbands to beat the crap out of his wives (word used is “scourge”, meaning “whip”) for insubordination or disobedience. Thus when a kinky husband demands sex from his wife on a camel’s back and she refuses it, it is insubordination on her part, and the husband is permitted by Allah to flog her like a slave... (Quran 4:34)
In the eyes of Assange and his devotees, all liberal-democratic capitalist nations of the West, including Sweden, Britain, Australia and America, are curse to humanity, whilst nations like Putin-ruled Russia, Correa-ruled Ecuador and Asad-ruled Syria are humanity's proudest crowns. It's hard to understand the mind of Assange and his devotees. After his 19 August speech from the Ecuador Embassy, Sweden's Svenska Dagbladet wrote: "Assange has evolved into a megalomaniac rhetorician, who seems to have very little contact left with reality.”
One, who consider himself above law and justice and in whose mind, the world is exactly opposite of what it reality is, it's not unreasonable to call him a 'megalomaniac'. If improving the health of freedom of expression for humanity was Assange's real purpose, countries Russia, Ecuador, China and Bangladesh could have been his primary targets, Western nations could be the last. But it's a matter of regret that in the world of Assange, countries like Russia and Ecuador are the "holy land" of freedom of expression, while nations like those of Western Europe, America, Canada and Australia are its graveyard.
The Democratic Party should be commended for defending the rights and liberty of women against the so-called declaration of war on women by the Republican Party. But they also deserve greater condemnation for promoting, with great fanfare and extravaganza, the Islamic declaration of war not only on women, but also on all non-Muslims of the world by organizing a giant Jumah prayer congregation at its National Convention to be attended by 20,000 invited Muslim devotees.
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."
