As an apostate his mission is to raise the clarion call about the imminent and present danger of expansionistic theocratic Islam. Having witnessed first-hand the horrors and indignity that Islamofascism visits on people it subjugates, he have taken it upon himself to do his part in defeating this ideology of oppression, hate and violence.
Since the September 2001 (9/11) Jihad attacks in the USA, there has been a steady rise in Islamic radicalism and violence in Islamic countries all over the globe. But one predominantly Muslim nation, Bangladesh, stands as the only exception to that trend.
My name is Amil Imani, and I am a former Muslim from Iran. I am often asked why I left Islam and how did it happen. Looking back, I see no particular time or event that suddenly severed my link with Islam. There was nothing nearly as dramatic as what reportedly happened to Paul on the road to Damascus, transforming him from a rabid Christian persecutor to a devoted follower of Jesus.
My alienation from Islam had its seed in the way I was raised. My parents encouraged me to ask questions and to question everything, rather than telling me to shut up, as children are often told.
Islam, according to newly released data from the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies, is now the fastest growing religion in America, verifying President Barack Obama's claim that the United States is "no longer a Judeo-Christian country."
How many Muslims now live within the country remains anyone's guess, since the U.S. Census Bureau neglects to collect data on religious identification. A 2008 study by Cornell University projected that the number of Muslims in America had climbed from 1.6 million in 1995 to 7 million.[i] A U.S. News and World Report survey, which was conducted at the same time, placed the figure at 5 million,[ii] while the Pew Research Center set the number at 2.35 million.
The most influential Sunni leader in the Middle East has just admitted what many of us who grew up as Muslims in the Middle East have always known: that Islam could not exist today without the killing of apostates.
Yusuf al-Qaradawi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood and one of the most respected leaders of the Sunni world, recently said on Egyptian television, "If they [Muslims] had gotten rid of the punishment [often death] for apostasy, Islam would not exist today."
Islam and Liberalism today are the two leading socio-political systems, competing with each other to dominate the global society. And Islam is proving to be Liberalism's Achilles heel, with no clue about how to tame and undermine it effectively. Unless effective measures are devised quickly, Liberalism, instead of globalizing itself, may face a crisis of its own survival even in the West, engendered by a fast-globalizing Islam.
It is time to establish a Religious Review Board (RRB.) Is this an outlandishly absurd proposal? Not at all. Serious problems require equally serious solutions. The call for establishing a Religious Review Board may be seen as an attempt to curb Islam. The truth is: it is.
Encroaching Islam with its rule of Sharia presents an imminent threat to subvert and replace the Constitution that governs our lives. Unlike Muslims who practice Taqiyyah—lying or dissimulation—I proudly speak the truth. Truth should never be sacrificed at the altar of any goal. I firmly believe that truthfulness is indeed the foundation of all virtues.
Sitting at Noble Coffee in Ashland, Oregon, reflecting on the day I had coffee here with David Hayden, author of Muhammad and the Birth of Islamic Supremacism: The War With The Jews 622-628 A.D. As I read that book, I was awed by the tenacity and integrity with which the author had researched for a decade before beginning to write, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to talk with him about various elements of his studies.
In his book “The 100”, which lists history’s top-100 most influential people, author Michael Hart declared Prophet Muhammad to be No. 1, while Genghis Khan came 21st, Hitler 35th and Stalin 63rd. Why was Prophet Muhammad given the top position, although he only mass murdered thousands while the other three had killed in millions. Because Muhammad’s was way smarter and his cult and memory flourished, but the other three are forgotten along with their cult. Today, even after 1,400 years of his passing, his cultists continue to love and adore him and passionately, would kill any one who insults Muhammad or draws his cartoon.
Since the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., The Religion of Peace website has maintained a daily log of Islamic terror attacks, and many Internet blogs post the daily scorecard. It is also important to reflect on the trends over time with annual summaries, which this author has been doing for several years. While Islamic terrorism continues unabated in Afghanistan and Iraq, the new focus seems to be North Africa. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently acknowledged before Congressional hearings: “We now face a spreading jihadist threat. We have to recognize this is a global movement.”
The Koran is idiotic and infantile, yet an excellent but vain example of mankind's yearning to approach practical holiness and to delusional imaginations – that is, fantasy for the positional attainment of personal sanctification and redemption.
Over Pakistani soldiers' killing and mutilating dead-bodies of Indian soldiers, Muslims are claiming that mutilation of dead-bodies is prohibited in Islam. But this is a sacred tradition in Islam, which was initiated by Prophet Muhammad himself.
"What is wrong with inciting intense dislike of a religion if the activities or teaching of that religion are so outrageous, irrational or abusive of human rights that they deserve to be intensely disliked." -- Rowan Atkinson

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."
