Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Islam and the Iranian Dilemma

Since its inception fourteen hundred years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literally 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' foundation has been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent victims. Islam lives, breaths and grows on blood. Once we take 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. It is utterly part of being Muslims.

Muslims are radical even in their intrafaith dealings. Various sects and sub-sects pronounce other sects and sub-sects as heretics worthy of death; women are treated as chattel, deprived of many rights; hands are chopped for stealing even a loaf of bread; sexual violation is punished by stoning, and much much more. These are standard day-to-day ways of the mainstream “moderate” Muslims living under the stone-age laws of Sharia.

The “moderate” mainstream of Islam has been outright genocidal from inception. Their own historians record that Ali, the first imam of the Shiite and the son-in-law of Muhammad, with the help of another man, beheaded 700 Jewish men in the presence of the Prophet himself. The Prophet of Allah and his disciples took the murdered men’s women and children in slavery.

Ali, who is the successor of Apostle of God on the earth, and known to fight with a double edged sword, ordered the warriors to cut off the heads of the nonbelievers. Zobair assisted him in finishing this job. Ali also ordered the distribution of the captives and their property [i.e. the ‘booty’] among the Muslims, in accord with Sa’ad’s (b. Mu’adh) decision regarding the fate of the defeated Jews [i.e., the Qurayzah]. After the battle [and executions], Ali ordered everyone [of the Muslims] to return home. Sa’ad (b. Mu’adh) who had been very anxious during the battle, was now happy and praised God upon completion of his task. Then [later] they [i.e., the Muslims] celebrated and enjoyed beautiful women.”

Muslims are taught deception and lying in the Quran itself—something that Muhammad practiced during his life whenever he found it expedient. Successive Islamic rulers and leaders have done the same.
Khomeini, the founder of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, for instance, rallied the people under the banner of democracy. All along his support for democracy.

was not a commitment of an honest man, but a ruse. As soon as he gathered the reins of power, Khomeini went after the Useful Idiots of his time with vengeance. These best children of Iran, having been thoroughly deceived and used by the crafty phony populist-religionist, had to flee the country to avoid the fate of tens of thousands who were imprisoned or executed by the double-crossing imam.

“Throughout centuries, Iranians continued to prevent Islam from making inroads into their cultural identity and divesting them of their heritage. Knowing their culture well, they influenced events and paved the way for posterity to turn the tide. From the beginning, three lines of resistance are distinct: administrative manipulation, political resistance, and intellectual nonconformity.”

Almost three decades after the tragic Islamic Revolution of 1979, the suffocating rule of Islam casts its death-bearing pall over Iranians. A proud people with enviable heritage is being systematically purged of its sense of identity and forced to think and behave like the barbaric and intolerant Muslims.

Iranians who had always treated women with equality, for instance, have seen them reduced by the stone-age clergy to sub-human status of Islamic teaching. Any attempt by the women of Iran to counter the misogynist rule of Muhammad’s mullahs is mercilessly suppressed. Women are beaten, imprisoned, raped and killed just as men are slaughtered without due process or mercy.

One must pay attention to how Islamists engage others in discussion. When they don't like what they hear, they resort to ridicule, accusations and name-calling. Wouldn't it be wonderful if these people would, for once, were to abandon their primitive mindset and use a civilized method of dialogue?

What are the facts the Islamists dispute? Is it the truth that they don't like? Well, that's tough. Truth is often unwelcome. Yet, it is light to our feet. We really must be truthful even if it hurts and often it does.
Are there any questions about the facts?

1. Muhammad died and did not leave a written will (he was illiterate, that's understandable). So, his high-ranking disciples began scheming for leadership. The Shias claim that Muhammad verbally indicated that Ali was to lead his Ummah. Well, 90% of the Muslims say, no he did not and the Caliphate system was the way to go.

2. Shortly after Muhammad's death, Ali was killed by some disgruntled Muslim, for whatever reason. Violence was part and parcel of Islam from the very outset.

3. Then there was a battle between Yazid's forces and Hussein. Wasn't there? Hussein and his band of relatives-followers got butchered. Well, friends, that's the nature of the beast called war.

4. To this day, Shias bloody themselves, their children, even their babies with self-flagellation in a most horrid way in aza dari (morning) for what happened to Hussein. What good does this do, other than perpetuate a sense of defeatism and fanaticism that mitigates against Iranians freeing themselves from the yoke of the conniving mullahs?

The long-suffering Iranian people must put the past behind them and use their excellent talents to not only join the advanced world, but lead it. What a shame to remain stuck in this horrid mentality of victimization. Iranians deserve better than being manipulated by a bunch of mullahs who have been having a great ride on the back of the ignorant poor. They have been deceiving the poor and the ignorant with empty promises all the goodies that they are promised in the afterlife.

Forget the afterlife and pay attention to the plight of the suffering masses. Stop playing politics with the life of the people. Those responsible for this sham have no heart and no shame. Let the bad bygones be bygones and use the marvelous human potential of Iranians to provide them with the opportunities to better themselves and their families.

The most important step in the direction of emancipation of our people is the establishment of the rule of law -- not the barbaric Sharia -- to grant all Iranians, male and female, young and old, of any and all beliefs equal rights.

We Iranians don’t have a dog in this fight. In fact we should rid ourselves of all Islamic stains, Shia, Sunni, or whatever, and with it stop playing victims of one power or another. Playing victim may give psychological relief but doesn’t solve any problems on the ground. And problems on the ground we have aplenty.

Let's look forward and do something about the sorry plight of Iranian people today so that future generation recall this generation of Iranians as trailblazers who had the courage to break from the bleak past and launch a bright future.

His recent anti-Muslim racist film "Fitna" on the Quran, based on pure lies and deceptions, can be considered as a Million-Dollar Advertisement on behalf of Muslims! Non-Muslims are, in fact, helping Muslims to spread the Message of the Quran - no matter what it is. Because after publishing his film, more and more Dutch people are going to Islamic centers to learn about the Quran, out of curiosity, and many of them are converting to Islam! The same was happened after 9/11 drama performed by Bush-Cheney terrorist gang. Because Quran is indeed a Revelation from God. So, racist and liar non-Muslims are, in fact, working as true slaves of Muslims!

*Quran is the only non-Jewish scripture in the world where Jews have been honored and protected [Quran 2:40; 2:47; 10:93; 44:30-32; etc.], and they have also been offered salvation if they follow their own scriptures [Quran 2:62, 5:69 and 22:17]. *Quran is the only non-Christian scripture in the world where Jesus and Mary have been honored with very high regard [Chapter 19: Mary], and they (Christians) have also been offered salvation if they follow their own scriptures [Quran 2:62, 5:69 and 22:17]. #On the other hand, there is no salvation for non-Jews in Judaism! There is no salvation for non-Christians in Christianity either! According to Christianity, all non-Christians (Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Pagans, etc.) will be burned in hell for eternity! *Verse 3:28 and 5:51 address to terrorist/intolerant Jews and Christians, not ALL. See 5:57 and 60:8-9 for clarification. *Majority Christians do not follow the true teachings of Jesus. For example: Jesus himself never claimed to be God or the begotten Son of God; He never preached absurd Trinity; He never told his followers to worship him; In fact, he used to pray to God; and so on. *Muslims already believe in Moses and Jesus as Prophet of God, and as such they (Muslims) have nothing to be afraid of Judaism and Christianity!

Quran is the only holy writing which claims that humans are made from clot. Beleive it or believe it not, we all are made by god from clot. Period.

"Because embryos look like clot, at one stage and also look like a leech...." You are really a genius! It's amazing! But let me give you the REAL story. Looking like something IS very different from being. Let me whisper in your ear: " On one side is a liddle, wiggly sperm....and on the other side is a big, big OVA, in English it's called an EGG. Now, the liddle sperm travels a great, great distance to join this big, big egg. As soon as the sperm enters the egg, the egg surrounds itself with a protective shell. Then it starts to divide into cells, and starts growing......."

Somebody, truly enlightened, noticed: ""Because embryos look like clot, at one stage and also look like a leech...."" I've seen the ultrasounds of my son before birth, and I can say that he also looked: like a peach, like a peanut, like a piggy, like a little Pac-Man phantom, like an amoeba and like a frog. Neither of which comparisons bear the slightest scientific value, but, nonetheless, are MORE complete than the Quranic description, since they encompass a longer period of fetal development, and are the result of direct witnessing through scientific equipment. :) So, should I initiate a new religion today, I guarantee you that MY embriology will be better that the Qur'an's :) :)

Adding to my last post - consider: "the Islamization of Iran was to yield deep transformations within the cultural, scientific, and political structure of Iran's society: The blossoming of Persian literature, philosophy, medicine and art became major elements of the newly-forming Muslim civilization. Culturally, politically, and religiously, the Iranian contribution to this new Islamic civilization is of immense importance. Indeed, the culmination of Iran caused the "Islamic Golden Age"."

It is a defeatist idealogy to thinks that such exposure can whip off sentiment and embarassement of the barbaric and demonic nature of Islam by thinking the film will promote Islam. In the first Place no rational and well informed person can commit his souls to such a delusion and demented ideology based on hate and violent as being spiritual road map to heaven. It is because of force,the ignorance,and the oppression of people in Islam that keep people under such bondage. I believe enlightment, and knowledge of Islam will expose the misconception and deceipt that Islam is a religion of peace, the rest is a matter of time Islam will be dismantled, distroyed and vanquised like comunism,nazism and any antihuman Ideology in the past

"Re:Re: Quran on Jews and Christians" : You nut humans are not created from clot- your Quran is a bullshit. The only clot is in the empty spaces between the ears of muslims- a bunch of brainless zombies. You have contributed nothing to the human race except HATE and MORE HATE with a closed and insular mind that cannot accept Truth, Knowledge and Progress ,all of which flows from the non-muslims' efforts and brains. Quran is just a book of some 6,666 verses of trash , and not Knowledge and Science as you muslims fraudulently claim.At best it has some distorted stories plagiarised from the Bible.It is a barbaric recipe fit for cruel mafias and middle-eastern barbarians- nothing more - to herd the populace like dumb cattle ,filling their heads with the Quranic Garbage and taking them into the deep dark hole of misery, strife, bloodshed and death. It is a Total Recipe for Disaster. See the islamic countries - Iran, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc -You cannot call them an enlightened Society by any standard or measure . They are all a cesspool of corruption, human misery ,mistrust, turmoil, exporters of terrorism around the World and all the negative aspects and vices like drug-smugling, gun-running, illegal human-trafficing, slavery, gross human exploitation, huge discrimination between muslims and non-muslims, prosperty for a few handful and poverty and ignorance for the rest- that is an :islamic Country" or "islamic Ummah" for you! Can anybody question that without imperiling their life and property??? Nay! THat is islam and its Barbaric cult that goes in the name of Religion! There is no free thinking or spiritualilty. Spirituality emanates from free thinking and not from closed minds regimented and imposed strictures ,regulating human mind to a set of faulty ,fabricated pack of LIES with Death threats if anyone deviates! That's Islam and the Cult of Mohamad! How can Knowledge and human Progress come about without free thinking? So you clot keep your LIES and BULLSHIT to yourself!
