the Greatest Threat Facing America
10 January, 2006
intention of this article is to provoke a much needed debate on
the nature of a phenomenon called Islamic Terrorism. Most people
that the phenomenon called Islamic Terrorism started after the
September 11, 2001 attack on the
New York City
. Actually, the world was in a deep coma about the nature of
Islamic Terrorism before the events of September 11, 2001. In some
cases, people still are in denial of Islamic Terrorism. However,
this phenomenon did not start on or about September 11, 2001. This
event was conceived and put into action 1400 years earlier on the
hot sands of
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 Quran, thus a Muslim is a person who must do
what the book says. If he or she does not follow the Quran, he or
she is not considered to be a Muslim. Muslims insist that the
almighty Lord of all living things is synonymous with what is
known in Arabic as Allah. Muslims confess that every word in the
Quran is the word of Allah. It contains 114 Surahs (chapters) and
over 6000 verses. Ironically, the greatest enemy of Islam is this
very book which Muslims vow to be pure from 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 even to a dot over the past fourteen
hundred years. However, they won't allow any one to question any
parts of it. 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
Nowadays, we hear from the Muslim apologists that Islam has been
hijacked by the militant Muslims. Even some Americans utter the
same thing. Muslims keep repeating that Islam means "peace",
something my American friends 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 thing called good Muslims or bad Muslims. "Good
Muslims" are nominal Muslims, the ones who have never read the
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 with those who may become Islamic terrorists, may
help us 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.
1-Islam rewards those who are willing to die for Allah. Everybody
hates and fears death. Only those who believe in a life after
death and its promised rewards would be seeking death.
2-Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you
3-If the unbelievers do not "offer you peace" (submit) kill them
wherever you find them.
4-Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to
5-Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have
a painful doom.
These are the messages of the Quran.
Everyone eventually will face death. However, the destination
after death is not the same for those who believe and those who
don't. Those who believe in Allah and follow what his messenger
said will be in paradise. In other words, those who commit crimes
against humanity, murder the infidels, rape little girls, burn the
cities of disbelievers, hijack airplanes, fly them into buildings
and bring down towers and cast terror in the hearts of people will
spend their eternal rest in heaven. To top it, 72 virgins 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,
the Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings,
Most Compassionate, Most Merciful, yet he needs blood and lots of
Since its inception 1400 years ago, Islam has been at war with the
people of this planet. Millions of people have been literary
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 one takes 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.
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
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?
Americans are slowly waking up from their long winter sleep.
However, there are still millions of Americans who are extremely
nave about the dangers of Islamic terrorism. Americans 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 a faith can make wild animals
out of humans.
The greatest threat facing
today is Americans' ignorance about Islam. Until Americans
understand the threat of Islam on its society and its soil, people
will continue to die. Until there is a true understanding of this
faith and means to control it, Americans, along with other people
will continue to die. The threat of Islam is real. Until the
Americans understand that all violent Islamic fundamentalist
groups, including al-Qaeda and Hezbollah and others are true
Muslims who wish to kill all Americans, they will continue to die.
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 about it, innocent people, including
Americans, will continue to die.
