From Elsewhere: An Ex-Muslim tells it like it is.
An ex-Muslim, commenting on a story over at JihadWatch has really condensed into words what is wrong with the ideology of Islam and shows categorically that it is a path of “injustice, intolerance, hatred, and violence “. I find very little to disagree with both in his assessment of Islam and the threat that it poses to ex-Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
The commentator, going by the name of SaleemSmith said:
“French authorities have detained four suspected extremists accused of robbing a fast food restaurant in order to finance their planned travel to fight alongside Islamic extremists in Syria.”
Four more “slaves of Allah” wanting to “kill and be killed” for Islam alongside their jihadi brothers in hopes of turning Syria into the next Sharia paradise/hell hole on earth.
And of course if the thousands upon thousands of Sunni fundamentalists now in Syria are able to turn Syria into another Islamic Sharia State, things will end up far worse for both the non-Muslims and Muslims alike than they ever were under Assad.
We ex-Muslims know that the more Islam that gets applied to a society the worse things will inevitably become. Too bad that so many Muslims and their supporters are in denial of this obvious fact.
Few would argue that much of what is contained within the various schools of Sharia law is evil and disastrous. But what is the Sharia?
The Sharia is simply the product of devout and learned Islamic scholars earnestly pouring over Islam’s canonical texts – The Qur’an, hadith and sira.
The 164 jihad Verses in the Qur’an that make jihad is a central tenet of the Islamic creed is in large part why devout Muslims from all over the globe are trying to get to Syria to wage jihad.
Mohammedanism is a cruel hoax and Muslims are killing and dying for nothing. Worse than nothing.
At least 75% of the Sira (biographies of Muhammad and quotes attributed to him) is about jihad.
The largest part of the Islamic texts (the Qur’an, hadith and sira) relate to the treatment of unbelievers, kafirs. Approximately 67% of the Qur’an written in Mecca is about the unbelievers, or politics. Of the Qur’an of Medina, 51% is devoted to the unbelievers.
Mohammed preached his religion for 13 years and garnered only 150 followers. But when he turned to politics and war, in 10 years time he became the first ruler of Arabia by averaging an event of violence every 7 weeks for 9 years. His success did not come as a religious leader, but as a political leader.
Political Islam asks: What is the real jihad? The jihad of inner spiritual struggle, or the jihad of war?
Statistical analysis of the Bukhari hadith (considered by Muslims to be the most authentic of the hadith collections) show that Muhammad repeatedly speaks of jihad. In Bukhari, 97% of the jihad references are about war, and 3% are about the inner struggle. So the statistical answer is that jihad is 97% war and 3% inner struggle.
There are 146 references to Hell in the Qur’an. Only 6% of those in Hell are there for moral failings — murder, theft, etc. The other 94% of the reasons for being in Hell are for the intellectual sin of disagreeing with Mohammed, a political crime.
Islam is no “the religion of peace”. Islam is primarily a religion of “injustice, intolerance, hatred, and violence.” The fact is, if we non-Muslims were to say about Muslims what the Qur’an says about us, we would be arrested for hate speech. The Qur’an largely preaches discrimination, death, and imposition of its dogma on everyone. Certainly some Muslims will be offended by such statements, but frankly, so what? Judaism and Christianity, the world’s two other major monotheistic religions, have had to face the harshest of scrutiny and criticism for several hundred years which continues to this day. Islam must not be granted any special privileges or be exempt from such treatment – the implications are of tremendous importance.
We ex-Muslims living with Islam’s formal and informal death penalty for apostasy know that the cruel, über violent cult of Mohammedanism is a despicable fraud.
Here is a recent statement from a group of Bangladeshi apostates living in the UK explaining the reasons why they have abandoned Islam:
“One who claims to be a messenger of God is expected to live a saintly life. He must not be given to lust, he must not be a sexual pervert, and he must not be a rapist, a highway robber, a war criminal, a mass murderer or an assassin. One who claims to be a messenger of God must have a superior character. He must stand above the vices of the people of his time. Yet Muhammad’s life is that of a gangster godfather. He raided merchant caravans, looted innocent people, massacred entire male populations and enslaved the women and children. He raped the women captured in war after killing their husbands and told his followers that it is okay to have sex with their captives (Qur’an 33:50). He assassinated those who criticized him and executed them when he came to power and became de facto despot of Arabia. Muhammad was bereft of human compassion. He was an obsessed man with his dreams of grandiosity and could not forgive those who stood in his way…
The statement continues,
Muhammad was a narcissist, like Hitler, Saddam or Stalin. He was astute and knew how to manipulate people, but his emotional intelligence was less evolved than that of a 6-year-old child. He simply could not feel the pain of others. He brutally massacred thousands of innocent people and pillaged their wealth. His ambitions were big and as a narcissist he honestly believed he is entitled to do as he pleased and commit all sorts of crimes and his evil deeds are justified.”
end of quoted comment.
Those who have escaped from Islam know how evil it is. We must not allow their account of Islams evil nature be ignored. Back in the 1930’s we didn’t listen to those voices which said: ‘look this Hitler guy is setting up death camps’ or ‘Stalin is sending people to the Gulag’. Today we should make good those mistakes by listening to, and believing those, like Saleem Smith, who have lived as prisoners of Islam, and are in a position to tell us the truth about it.
