Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Islam Demands Surrender

What’s in a name? A great deal. Democracy, fascism, and communism represent different systems of government. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are also titles for different religious systems.

Whereas democracy is defined as the rule of the people, by the people, for the people, Islam is defined as the rule of Allah, by Allah and his emissaries, for the pleasure of Allah. And when people, out of concern for political correctness or ignorance, describe Islam as a religion of peace, they are, at the very least, guilty of misrepresenting it.

The word “Islam,” is derived from the word “taslim,” which means surrender. The word for peace is not “taslim,” but it is “solh.” Hence, when Muslims behave in violent barbaric ways, they are only doing so in obedience to the dictates of their creed. They are surrendering and sacrificing anything and everything in service to the will and pleasure of Allah, as they see it.

Of course, not every Muslim surrenders fully to the will of Allah. The great majority of Muslims are only partial Muslims. They may say their daily obligatory prayers, they may tithe some, and they may keep the fast from time to time. Yet, they may also have a few drinks now and then, and do many things that they are not supposed to do.

But Islam can be a “forgiving” religion, specifically for the male. If you neglect to say your prayers or you simply don’t want to, you can hire someone, preferably an imam or a mullah, to pray on your behalf. Going to the Hajj is too onerous and takes you away from the pleasures and comforts of your life? You can deputize someone else to go in your stead. You have a few drinks of the forbidden brew and it is time to say your prayer? Simply rinse your mouth and go ahead with praying. But, always remember the will of Allah and serve him. Do your duties to vanquish the unbelievers, promote the rule of the Sharia, and make the earth Allah’s.

If only the masses of Muslims arise and carry out the orders of Allah, then we would have the promised paradise of Islam on earth as exemplified by such rules as that of the Taliban, Saudi Arabia, the Sudan, and of course the Shiite nirvana of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In these model Islamic societies, freedom of expression, worship, and assembly are taken away. Women are treated as chattel. Young girls are subjected to barbaric genital mutilation to make them sex slaves and birth channels without the ability to enjoy intercourse. Minors are executed, adulterers are stoned to death, thieves have their limbs amputated, and much much more. Isn’t that everyone’s idea of paradise?

This misogynist religion of Allah is custom-made for the savage male. A faithful follower of Allah is allowed to have as many as four permanent wives – and replace any of them at any time he wants -- as well as an unlimited number of one-night or one-hour-standers that he can afford to rent. But, woe unto a woman if she even has a single love affair with another man. Nothing less than death by stoning is her just punishment.

The partial-Muslims are seemingly harmless, may appear normal, and are under the radar. What gets our attention is the die-hard, the real Muslims who are a small minority. Yet this virulent combative minority is campaigning simultaneously on two major fronts. It works to herd the partial-Muslim majority into its fold and vanquish all other non-believers by any and all means.

It is prudent to keep in mind that all important events in the history of humanity have been instigated by either an individual or a small group. These individuals or groups have been the sheep-dogs that have directed the movements and activities of the masses, the sheep.

This is exactly what the real Muslims, the Islamists, are doing in the world today. It is suicidal to dismiss the Islamists as a bunch of zealots of no consequences or as a fringe group that will burn itself out. Sadly enough, it is the bulk of the Muslims that pundits portray as “peaceful” who is either irrelevant or often serves as an instrument in the hands of the Islamists. A couple of examples from recent history conclusively prove the point that it is the fanatical minorities that launch and implement campaigns that inflict immense suffering on the larger society.

In the 1930s, very few Germans were Nazis, but many basked in the resurgence of German pride and many others were too busy with their own lives to care. Thus, Germany presented a wide-open unchallenged opportunity for the Nazis to push forward their agenda and gather power to a point that it was too late for any other force to stem their tide.

And we all know what suffering this gang of radical supremacists inflicted on millions of people before their own demise.

The Khomeinism of Iran was started by a band of Shiite fanatics who rode the tide of opposition to the rule of the Shah and promised the masses the Islamic nirvana. No sooner had the Khomeinists ascended to power than they made the entire nation captive by murdering tens of thousands of the complacent and the late-to-awaken opposition, imprisoning and torturing untold thousands more, and creating a state of Islamic menace that threatens the entire free world.

The fact is that too many die-hard Islamists continue leaving the failed Islamic states and settling in the lands of the Kafir. These new arrivals bring with them the deeply engrained hatred of the infidels and believe that they are indeed the rightful owner of the entire earth and all other non-Muslims are mere squatters that must be either subjugated or eliminated all together. In this relentless campaign, the Islamists have a vast cadre of “experts,” “talking heads,” and for-purchase politicians who keep endlessly broadcasting the false mantra that Islam is religion of peace. This latter bunch is criminally complicit in making the populace complacent and furthering the work of the Islamists.

Islam may be a religion of peace. It is the kind of peace imbedded in its very name: Surrender. Free people shouldn’t be cowed by the Islamist savages and should take into account their accomplices who are shamelessly deceiving the public regarding the true nature of Islam

Islam demands surrender of all that free people cherish and hold sacred. It is Islam, a pathological doctrine and a vestige of archaic barbarism that must surrender to the wholesome principles of freedom and free people.

Many Muslims despise the West as "decedant" and "liberal." Yet, they are flocking west en masse. If you don't like the West; stay the hell out! Live in your backwards "paradises" - I hear there's a new one being set up in Swat. Don't miss out. Seriously though, stop Muslim immigration!

An excellent article. One of the best i'v come across. It is obvious this man knows His business and speaks from experience. My brief comment is: Good people with good intentions who are putting their efforts into promoting Islam and furthering its cause would be well advised to stop such efforts. Nothing could be further from the truth to believe that what the world needs is more Islam and its depraved/puritanical falsehoods.

"The partial-Muslims are seemingly harmless, may appear normal, and are under the radar."...The (allegedly) "moderate peace-loving Muslim majority" are the fetid pool in which the active jihadi pirhanas spawn, grow, swim around, from which they venture forth to tear and rend Kafir flesh and to which they return to find protection.

It means to give up thinking and to follow brainless rulings from the quran. Logic surrenders against Superstition. Muslims, in other words, are to lazy to think and that´s why they need Islam. They need to be taught in which direction they are allowed to s**t and in what direction they have to pray.

Islam means surrender of human intellect and creativity. No wonder Muslim countries are the most backward in all fields of human endeavor.

Freedom is despised by Islamists, freedom of body and mind is the enemy of Islam. All oaths and allegiances made by Muslims entering free democratic countries are null and void due to Muslims being permitted to lie for the prosperity of Islam. The word of Allah is higher than any country or foreign law, the basis of our countries ideological foundations “FREEDOM” is being used against free minded peoples. MY RITES MY RITES, where the fuck is responsibility for the privilege of having these rites! ONE DAY OUR FREEDOM WILL BE TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE OF ISLAM. They know it and they exploit it.

I fully agree with the author that Muslims never surrender fully to the will of Allah. It is by chance rather by choice, we are Muslims. We are following certain traditions of Islam, because we are subjected to from sides of life as Muslim. The Muslims are not fully aware of the duties expected of them. They are human and they err conveniently over looking the tenets of Islam when the personal stake is involved. They are not united. They are not pious by and large. They go to mosque more for fear rather than as a duty. They seek Allah's guidance in time of need. They violate rules, they never mind smoking or wining or dining much against the practices. They never bother whether the food served is a halal or not. They never mind getting interet from the Bank credited to their account, for they called it sharing of profit. They fight among themselves for trivial matters in mosque during or after every prayer in all mosques. It is quite unfortunate that while some follow radical jamats like Tableeqi or Jamate Islami. Both these Jamats imparts training but their members are short of practicing. They are most hypocritic lot I have seen. They do not practice what they preach. Such is the state of affairs of Muslim every where. I went to Arabia thinking Muslims would be respected. But there they need people who work and not the religion to which they belong. Very frustrating experience indeed. Muslims have taking up arms in the name of voicing their concern at the plight of muslims in Gujarat. The kind of radicalisation of society is quite embarrassing for one and all. The extremism practiced by these radical jamaats have tarnished the fair image and name of Islam. They have almost destroyed the future of the Muslims in India. Thanks to the unprecedented unity shown by Musmim in Mumbai, a catestrophy in the form of retaliatory riots averted. I must also thanks the Mullahs and Clericks who assembled in Hydrabad to condemn terrorism and issued a fatwa. These and more such actions would bring them back from the morass.

<chuckle> Not all of us savage males would choose to shackle and control our women in the way of the Saracens. I served in Iraq and sent my fair share of jihadists to meet their false god. Submit? Not while I have breath in my body.
