This is what Islam does to you. When you are
in it, your life is nothing but living in the fear of hell,
and once you leave it, it is not less than hell because you are constantly
scared to lose your life.
The Koran commands that Muslims who convert to another
religion must be killed. Those who hear about this may think "well it's
intolerant but at least it doesn't affect non-Muslims". Muslims
forcefully convert Christian girls to Islam and if they escape and convert
back the Muslims go on a rampage. Sometimes they never converted in the
first place. In one
rampage Muslims claimed that a Christian girl converted to Islam and the
Coptic Church responded by abducting her and torturing her into renouncing
Islam. Raymond Ibrahim wrote:
That these Coptic women have publicly insisted that they
never converted to Islam does not seem to matter much;

In a Pakistani village in the Punjab
province, Christian families were forced to leave because a Christian married a
Muslim woman. The Muslims in this village became
enraged when this occurred and began threatening them. This occurred 2

couple had been working there when they were accused of blasphemy.
In Iran, a 32-year old convert to
Christianity named Youcef Nadarkhani was sentenced to hang for
abandoning Islam for Christianity – a State crime. Nadarkhani
has been in jail since October 2010 and has, so far, refused to
recant his Christian faith. If he is hung, he would become the
first Iranian to be put to death for
apostasy since 1990.
Saudi Arabia, an alleged ally of the U.S.,
forbids any kind of non-Muslim religious ceremony – public or
private. If caught with a Bible, violators are sent to prison
and then deported. A story in the Washington Times (11/14/05)
underscored the religious intolerance of Saudi Arabia when
stating that: “A court
sentenced a teacher to 40 months in prison and 750 lashes
for “mocking religion” after he discussed the Bible and praised
Jews, a Saudi newspaper reported yesterday.”
In Iskenderun, Turkey, the personal driver
of Bishop Luigi Padovese, head of the Catholic Church in Turkey,
was a Muslim named Murat Altun, who repeatedly stabbed and
decapitated the Bishop and then proceeded to shout “I killed the
great Satan. Allahu Akhbar.” The brutal murder of Bishop Luigi
Padovese, on June 3, 2010, shocked the small and hard pressed
Christian community in Turkey. The 62 year-old bishop had been
spearheading the Vatican’s efforts to improve Muslim-Christian
relations in Turkey...

There is something very ominous about Pastor Youcef
Nadarkhani's trial for apostasy and that is that Youcef Nadarkhani was never a
Muslim. According to mainstream Islamic teaching however all people are
born Muslims. Islam also
teaches that all who
leave the faith should be killed. According to this rationale all people
who don't believe in Islam should be killed because they were all Muslims and
all left Islam.
Muslim Imam's in the West portray Islam as a tolerant
religion to Westerners. Actions, however, speak louder than words and when
Muslims are in control as in Saudi Arabia, non-muslims are persecuted. A
good article about this

return for Shalit but Hamas kept refusing to release him and would not let the
Red Cross see him. On Thursday Jan 20th 2011 French Foreign Minister
met with the
parents of Gilad Shalit. The kidnapped soldier holds French
citizenship. Alliot-Marie assured his parents that “France has not forgotten
Shalit,” and said she would insist that the European Union ask Hamas to allow
Red Cross representatives to visit Shalit, as required by international law. The
hatred of the Jewish non-believer is so great that Alliot-Marie was mobbed as
she entered Gaza, with a crowd surrounding her car, pounding on its windows, and
throwing shoes at the vehicle. One person jumped on the car. Two children were
pushed in front of the first car in Alliot-Marie's convoy, forcing the convoy to
a stop while the attack continued. Why, because of her sympathy with Gilad
Shalit and his parents and her allegiance to French citizens and because she
asked Gaza to obey a humanitarian International Law. Eventually Israel
gave Hamas an offer they could not refuse and released a large number of
terrorists in return for Shalit.

On August 22, 2010, Gregory Luke a 64 year old retiree
from California living in the island of Lombok Indonesia, walked into a
neighboring mosque and
asked them to turn the volume down. A group of local youths then
pushed him to the ground and pelted him with rocks. He fled and a mob
chased him to his home and ransacked it as police looked on. Gregory Luke,
needed a police escort from his home as the mob tore it to pieces around him. No
one from the mob was prosecuted, instead prosecutors said Luke had blasphemed
against Islam, when he complained that the nightly Ramadan prayer reading was
too loud. "We recommend a sentence of seven months' jail as he is guilty
of blasphemy and committing an act of hatred," prosecutor Baiq Nurjanah told a
court in Praya, Lombok. The recommended sentence would have been greater but
Gregory had apologized and groveled in order to get a reduced sentence.
a farm hand from the village of Ittan Wali in Sheikhpura
District, of Pakistan was asked to fetch water; and did so. According to
accounts from witnesses heard by the Pakistani court, Asia Bibi, a 45 years old
mother of 5, drank from the glass of two Muslim children who then stopped
drinking because they considered Christians unclean. Angered, it was
alleged that Bibi verbally abused the two, their religion, and the Islamic
prophet Muhammad. My guess is that this led to a row with other women because
another source she responded to their taunts telling them of her love of
Jesus Christ and how much her LORD had done for her. She then asked them
"What has Mohammad done for you?" The Muslim women reacted by throwing
stones at her for "questioning Mohammad." A few days later, a group of
Muslims decided they had to teach Asia another lesson. Joining together, they
severely beat her up. Seemingly in a coordinated fashion, the Muslim officers
showed up and arrested the Mom who was being beaten up. Then they took Asia to
jail to await a public hanging after a trial. The
owner of the farm where the incident occurred forwarded the incident to the
village Imam who forwarded it in turn to the village council ('panchayat'). Asia
reaffirmed that she had uttered remarks against Muhammad and then restated her
remarks in front of the council. She argued in defense of her remarks and made
no attempts at an apology. Arrested Bibi told other female prisoners while in
custody that she was "proud" of her remarks. Many from her village and almost
her entire village council testified against her as to having heard her make the
remarks and reaffirm them twice. The Governor of Punjab, Salmaan Taseer,
spoke up in support of Asia Bibi and in opposition to the blasphemy law and as
is to be expected in the tolerant Islamic nation of Pakistan was assassinated by
Malik Mumtaz, a member of his security team.
Malik was arrested and then

Creators of religious throughout
history have created doctrines of hatred against people who will not
convert. Muhammad, angry because he could not convert the Jews, wrote
into the Koran that the Jews should live in humiliation and misery. He
also wrote about Holy War against the Infidel. The fundamentalist Moslem
world is against people of all other beliefs
Muslims. This has caused endless
wars in the Middle and Far East and will undoubtedly cause many more.
There is a widespread misconception that oppression of the Palestinians is the
cause of Arab hatred against the West. Yet what propagandists call
oppression, is often simply self defense measures taken by people oppressed by
Muslims. This is diagrammed in the Creation
of Oppression web page. Jihad against an infidel who defends himself
is at the root of most Islamic misery in the world. Dr. Walid Phares in an article
in Frontpagemag.com (October 20, 2003) said that Bin Laden's own words confirm
this. Dr. Phares wrote:
the attempts by a sea of intellectuals who have, and still attempt to read
"social injustice" into the roots of the 9/11, the sultan of al-Qaida

During Operation Iraqi Freedom,

About 5 days after the Sunni
demonstration, Iraqi Shiite Muslims celebrated their holy festival in honor of
Hussein, grandson of Muhammad described by the New York Daily News as follows:
the first time in three decades, Iraq's Shiites were free to mark their holiest
festival - free to crawl on bleeding knees, to whip themselves raw and to cut
their own heads open with swords.
With Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein no longer able to
torment them, millions of Shiite Muslims flooding into the holy city of Karbala
eagerly tormented themselves in a remarkable explosion of long pent-up
"This year is particularly important because
we're free to do what we want," cried Jamella Mousawi, 50, a housewife who
walked for five days from Baghdad.
Many also used their new freedom to express strong
anti-Americanism, a bad sign for Washington's hopes of installing a government
that is both democratic and pro-American.
Under a blazing sun, the faithful dripped sweat and
gore as they circled Imam Hussein's golden mausoleum in dense crowds.
They whipped themselves with chains, sprayed blood
from gashed scalps and waved flags - black for mourning and green for Islam...
The annual pilgrimage to Karbala marks the A.D. 680
beheading of Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Muhammed, at the battle that
split the Muslims into the Shiite and Sunni sects. Abandoned by his followers,
Hussein faced down a massive army practically alone and was martyred.
The Shiites are still beating themselves up for
failing to come to his aid - literally.
The ritual self-abuse is meant to express their
"Imam Hussein suffered and died for the Shiites.
We hope this visitation eases our path to heaven," Mousawi said...
As the Shiites flexed their new political muscle,
there was little gratitude for their liberation...

the eyes of Islam, the very notion of democracy is demonized. In Islam, after
all, Allah is sovereign, which means that humans constructing their own laws is
sinful. The Koran and Sharia Law give Muslims all the laws they need...
Islam, democracy, as well as the very notion of the freedom of human
conscience, represents a dangerous deviation from the Koran and the Sharia.

enforced imposition of retrograde Sharia law is central to the project of
Islamist terrorists worldwide, whether in Iraq, Nigeria, Tajikistan or
Indonesia. Their explicit, continually reiterated, program is, in brief, to
restore a politically unified worldwide Muslim community, the ummah, ruled by a
single ruler, a Caliph, governed by the most reactionary version of Islamic
law, Sharia, and organized to wage jihad on the rest of the world. We are in a
battle with what is most accurately called the Caliphate movement.
A key element of their program and appeal is the replacement of democracy, legislatures
and “man-made law” with what they regard as the immutable divine law declared
by God to Mohammed. As MEMRI has recorded, bin Laden’s December 16, 2004
“Statement to the Saudi Rulers” said the regime must be overthrown for “ruling
by laws other than those which Allah has revealed” and implementing “man-made
laws.” His December 27 “Letter to the Iraqi People” told them not to
participate in the January 30 election since Muslims are allowed only to elect
a leader for whom “Islam is the only source of the rulings and laws.”

rule of the people…. This concept is apostasy."
Andrew Bostom in an article titled Radical
Islam’s Goal is Global Conquest (frontpagemag.com
7/2/2007) quoted Islamic scholars about the totalitarian leanings of Islam.He wrote:
Ibn Warraq has observed
aptly that the most fundamental conception of a Caliphate, “...the constant
injunction to obey the Caliph-who is God's Shadow on Earth”, is completely
incompatible with the creation of a “rights-based individualist philosophy.”..
six decades ago (in 1950), G.H. Bousquet (pp.
104-5), a pre-eminent modern scholar of Islamic Law, put forth this
unapologetic, pellucid formulation of the twofold totalitarian impulse in
Islam first came before the world as a doubly
totalitarian system. It claimed to impose itself on the whole world and it
claimed also, by the divinely appointed Muhammadan law, by the principles of
the fiqh, to regulate down to the smallest details the whole life of the
Islamic community and of every individual believer....the study of Muhammadan
law (dry and forbidding though it may appear to those who confine themselves to
the indispensable study of the fiqh) is of great importance to the world today.

are incompatible that doesn’t mean that oppressed Muslims don’t want democracy
for themselves.Zawahiri wrote a now
famous letter to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of al Qaeda in Iraq, in July 2005
in which he says how democracy can be used to impose Sharia. Ephraim
Karsh wrote that:
If, Zawahiri instructed his
lieutenant, al Qaeda’s strategy for Iraq and elsewhere were to succeed, it
would have to take into account the growing thirst among many Arabs for
democracy and a normal life, and strive not to alienate popular opinion through
such polarizing deeds as suicide attacks on fellow Muslims. Only by harnessing
popular support, Zawahiri concluded, would it be possible to come to power by
means of democracy itself, thereby to establish jihadist rule in Iraq, and then
to move onward to conquer still larger and more distant realms and impose the
writ of Islam far and wide.
used to impose Sharia in the West.Danish Muslim Ahmad Abu Laban,
was recorded stating that the West gives his radical co-religionists “a margin
of freedom” in which to lobby politically to impose Islamic law on Western and
Danish society, and “we use it.”(PBS
Democracy is like a streetcar,You ride it until you arrive
at your destination and then you step off."
Abul A'la Mawdudi, founder of the
Jamaat-i Islami in India, has argued that if democracy is conceived as a
limited form of popular sovereignty, restricted and directed by God's law,
there is no incompatibility with Islam, but Mawdudi concluded that Islam is the
very antithesis of secular Western democracy based solely on the sovereignty of
the people. (Quoted in Esposito and Piscatori, Democratization and Islam,
p. 436. See also Abul A'la Mawdudi, A Political Theory of Islam, in, Donohue
and John Esposito, eds. Islam in Transition: Muslim Perspectives (New York:
Oxford University Press, 1982), pp. 253-54.) On the other hand, Sayyid
Qutb, a leading traditionalist theoretician of the Muslim Brotherhood, executed
by the Egyptian government in 1966, objected to the idea of popular sovereignty
altogether: Qutb believed that "the Islamic state must be based on the
Quranic principle of consultation or shurah [on the interpretation of Shari'a],
and that the Islamic law or Shari'a is so complete a legal and moral system
that no further legislation is possible or necessary." (Quoted in
Hudson, "After the Gulf War," p. 436. For more on Qutb's views on
Islam, see John L. Esposito, ed., Voices of Resurgent Islam (New York: Oxford
University Press, 1983)) Khomeini's successor and Supreme Leader Ayatollah
Ali Khamenei called liberal democracy "the source of all human
torment." (Michael Rubin, The Radioactive Republic of Iran, The Wall
Street Journal, 1/16/2006)
Amir Taheri (New York Post
9/4/03) quoted an excerpt from "The Future of Iraq and The Arabian
Peninsula After the Fall of Baghdad" by Yussuf al-Ayyeri, one of Osama bin
Laden's closest associates since the early 90s as follows:
is not the American war machine that should be of the utmost concern to
Muslims. What threatens the future of Islam, in fact its very survival,
is American democracy."
Taheri explains that:
Al-Ayyeri sees now is a "clean battlefield" in which Islam faces a
new form of unbelief. This, he labels "secularist
democracy." This threat is "far more dangerous to Islam"
than all its predecessors combined. The reasons, he explains in a whole
chapter, must be sought in democracy's "seductive capacities."
form of "unbelief" persuades the people that they are in charge of
their destiny and that, using their collective reasoning, they can shape
policies and pass laws as they see fit. That leads them into ignoring the
"unalterable laws" promulgated by God for the whole of manind, and
codified in the Islamic shariah (jurisprudence) until the end of time...If
established in any Muslim country for a reasonably long time, democracy
could lead to economic prosperity, which in turn, would make Muslims
"reluctant to die in martyrdom" in defense of their faith.
Al Ayyeri is making a very
interesting point which is that it is not in the interest of radical Muslims
for Muslims to prosper economically. This is why the Arab countries and
the Palestinian Authority allow Arabs to suffer in refugee camps. Those
camps become a source of violent Jihadis which is exactly what they want.
This also explains the efforts of Al Qaeda and other radical Islamic groups to
sabotage U.S. efforts to rebuild Iraq. Oil pipelines could bring
prosperity to Iraq so radical Muslims blow them up. Improved medical care
might actually lead to some Iraqis liking the infidel which is why on October
27, 2003, a suicide bomber drove a bomb packed ambulance into the Red Cross
headquarters in Baghdad and detonated it. Health care for Iraqis is bad
when you Iraqis to be suffer and to blame that suffering on the Americans.
Amir Taheri wrote another
article (New York Post 8/18/04) in which he points out that democracy is
actually prohibited in the Koran. He wrote:
Koran includes a chapter entitled "Parties" (Ahzab) to warn against
splitting the Umma (the community of the faithful) into rival political groups
vying for power.
Taheri writes about widespread sermons in the
Arab world the United State and Europe in August 2004. Taheri writes that
the sermons say:
Prophet did not run for office in any election. He did not win any
political debate. [Instead] he won the war against the infidel."
The implication here is that to be
like the prophet we shouldn't have democracy and debate issues like those
infidel Americans but should instead fight those infidel Americans.
In another article titled The
Islamic Urge to Vote (New York Post 10/11/04) Amir Taheri wrote that the
traditional position of Islam is that it is opposed to any election, however
some Muslim theologians have declared voting an obligation for Muslims in
non-Islamic lands. He wrote:
argument is that, though Muslims owe no loyalty to non-Islamic states, they
must be free to decide when their participation in elections serves the
interests of Islam.
insisting that voting is an "obligation" include Yussuf al-Qaradawi
(an Egyptian based in Qatar), the Lebanese Faisal al-Mawlawi and the Iranian
Makarem Shirazi. Their argument is that Muslims living in non-Muslim
lands should regard themselves as missionaries whose task is to convert the
citizenry to Islam adn in time, establish an Islamic state. Thus if
taking part in elections is a means of achieving those goals, it is incumbent
on Muslims to do so...
support for Kerry is not inspired by any love for the senator but by the
perception that he would withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, thus allowing the
establishment of Islamic regimes in Baghdad and Kabul.

that’s the extent of the value of democracy for them.The following is a picture of a child pissing on the statue of
liberty who is holding a book with democracy written on it.It appeared in the Hamas weekly Al Risala
5/5/2006 (Palestinian Media Watch Bulletin, 5/31/2006).Clearly elections brought Hamas to power but
that did not instill respect for democracy in Hamas and elections will not
remove Hamas from power.
Benjamin Netanyahu, in a speech
to the House Government Reform Committee on September 20, 2001, also argued
that hatred of democracy fuels hatred of the West. He explained:
soldiers of militant Islam do not hate the West because of Israel, they hate
Israel because of the West. They see it as an island of Western democratic
values in a Muslim Arab sea. This is why they call Israel the Little
Satan, to distinguish it clearly from the country that has always been and will
always be the Great Satan -- the United States of America.
better illustrates this better than Osama bin Laden's call for Jihad against
the United States in 1998. He gave as his primary reason not Israel, not
the Palestinians, not the "peace process" but rather the very
presence of the United States "occupying the Land of Islam in the holiest
of places." And where is that? "The Arabian peninsula

to its rulers and humiliating its people." Israel by the way, comes

Malaysian prime minister
Mahathir Mohamad expressed the view that Jews invented democracy to gain
control of the world. He told a summit of Islamic leaders on Oct 16, 2003
that "Jews rule the world by proxy" and that "they get others to
fight and die for them." (New York Post Oct, 17,2003) He said
Jews "invented socialism, communism, human rights and democracy" to avoid
persecution and gain control of the most powerful countries. The leaders
gave Mahathir a standing ovation afterwards. Jeff Jacoby (Boston Globe
1/23/03) wrote that:
included not only the Muslim world's dictatorial fanatics, but also its reputed
moderates, including President Megawati Sukarnoputri of Indonesia, General
Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, and Jordan's King Abdullah. Even America's Muslim
allies and clients admired Mahathir's views. The foreign minister of Egypt -- a
country that receives $2 billion a year in US aid -- pronounced the speech
"a very, very wise assessment." Hamid Karzai, the US-installed
president of Afghanistan, praised it as "an eye-opener to a lot of us and
. . . what the Islamic world should do."
warlord Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has declared, "a bitter war against democracy
and all those who seek to enact it." "Democracy is also based on the right
to choose your religion," he said, making it "against the rule of
God." He said if freedom of expression is allowed "even cursing God.
This means that there is nothing sacred in democracy." He said Islam
requires the rule of God and not the rule of "the majority or the
people."Islamic clerics must protect the people from politicians who might
enact laws that contradict the Koran.
Such a system exists in Iran. In June's election, the Guardian Council, a body
of 12 Muslim clerics and religious jurists, excluded from the ballot all women
and all candidates critical of the current regime. The Supreme Leader,
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, appoints six members of the Guardian Council and the
other six are nominated by the Judiciary. The Guardians can also veto legislation.
Their job is to make sure that democracy does not allow the people to stray
from the fundamental principles of Islamic society and faith. The result of
such orchestrated elections was the coming to power of President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, who denies the Nazi Holocaust took place, believes Israel should
be "wiped off the map" and wants nuclear weapons.
The foolish Muslims who attack
democracy fail to realize that democracy is the key to their gaining power in
countries where they do not have it. Robert Baer in his book, Sleeping
With the Devil wrote about the folly of the American idea that democracy would
cure Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia of their radicalism. He wrote:
start by taking a look at the last time there were true democratic elections
held in an Arab country: Algeria in late 1991 and early 1992. When it
became clear the fundamentalists were about to win an overwhelming majority and
impose an Islamic constitution, the army stepped in. The country was immediately
plunged into a civil war that killed hundreds of thousands of people.
It's still going on today.
would we expect Saudi Arabia to be different? According to one poll
conducted in October 2001, 95 percent of educated Saudis between the ages of twenty
five and forty one support bin Laden. ...In October 2002 I asked a leader
of the Saudi opposition, Muhammad al-Masari what he thought. There was no
doubt in his mind that an Islamic government would succeed the Al Sa'ud if the
Saudis were allowed to decide their own political destiny.
Jeffrey Nyquist wrote an excellent column 1/12/2007
Things Are Impossible which explained how lack of free speech in Muslim
lands makes democracy impossible and how free speech is impossible in Muslim
lands because of their violent reaction to speech they don’t like.

insurgents ate lunch at the restaurant and then began executing
non-Muslims. Al Nashmi said.

One of many sources of Islamic
hostility to the United States in addition to hatred of the infidel, is U.S.
support of Israel, which they hate because they hate the Jewish infidel, yet
when Richard Reid the shoe bomber was sentenced to life in prison on Jan. 30,
2003 he told the judge:
American flag will come down and so will your country. You will be judged by
Allah!... Your government has

their money and weapons.
This sentence does not mention
Israel at all. Richard Reid in his statement was holding the United
States responsible for the actions of Egypt, Turkey, Syria and Jordan, all of
whom are Muslim countries.

If you, dear reader have

isn't easy, by the way, to satisfy this kind of curiosity. While you,
regardless of your religion or ethnicity, would be welcome in any church,
synagogue, or Buddhist temple, mosques do not normally extend their hospitality

“infidel” on the premises desecrates the mosque. Furthermore, some of them
seriously think that until the violator is killed for his crime, the mosque
cannot be cleansed. I suppose that different mosques exercise different
strictness in defending themselves from unwanted visitors, and, in some of
them, your life will not be threatened with imminent extinction. Nevertheless,
I strongly recommend that you do not attempt to visit a friendly mosque in your
multicultural neighborhood: better safe than sorry.

Islamic schools teach hate. Marc Fisher wrote an article called
"Teaching Teenagers to Hate" (New York Post 10/19/01) about the
Muslim Community School in Potomac, Maryland. Marc Fisher wrote:
no matter what they were asked, the students' answers often included something
about how the United States should focus not just on bin Laden's terror network
but on "the real terrorists," which is their code for Israel, which
they refer to as "the illegitimate Zionist regime... The principal
[of the school] would not denounce bin Laden because he does not trust the U.S.
government to judge the evidence. "Being cautious doesn't mean we
are turncoats," said Kareen (the principal). "It means we want
to wait until there are sufficient facts. I don't know Osama bin
Laden. But whatever is said about him, I want it said about the Israeli
prime minister. If we're going after terrorism, let's go at it at the
roots, not the branches."
According to Marc Fisher several
leaders of Muslim groups in Washington who wished to remain anonymous, said
that this school is not typical. Yet the Washington Post reported on Feb
25, 2002 that in the elite Islamic Saudi Academy in Northern Virginia the
textbooks tell the students that the Day of Judgment can't come until
Jesus Christ returns to Earth, breaks the cross and converts everyone to Islam,
and until Muslims start attacking Jews. The 11th-grade textbook, for
example, says one sign of the Day of Judgment will be that Muslims will fight
and kill Jews, who will hide behind trees that say: "Oh Muslim, Oh servant
of God, here is a Jew hiding behind me. Come here and kill him."
Several students of different ages, all of whom asked not to be identified,
said that in Islamic studies, they are taught that it is better to shun and
even to dislike Christians, Jews and Shiite Muslims. Some teachers
"focus more on hatred," said one teenager, who recited by memory the
signs of the coming of the Day of Judgment. "They teach students that whatever
is kuffar [non-Muslim], it is okay for you" to hurt or steal from
that person. Other teachers present more tolerant views, students said.
In the same article the
Washington Post reports how in the Al-Qalam All-Girls School in Springfield
maps of the Middle East hang on classroom walls, but Israel is missing.
According to the article:

liberate Palestine" were frequently uttered by speakers and the crowd.

speaker at the rally, Dr. Ayman Sirajuldeen, a member of the Muslim American

"There is no difference between Barak and Sharon and Hitler. All are
the same," Sirajuldeen said... Comparisons of Jews to Nazis, probably the

looked around. "Khaibar, Khaibar?" Did the journalists gathered
here know how chillling this was? Obviously not. In the next day's
papers it got written up as "a peaceful pro-Palestinian rally."
Muslim woman was standing next to me with her three children. She was
holding a baby not more than two months old. Her other two children,
perhaps three and four years old, looked terribly miserable in the cold and rain
and congestion. I pitied them. Throughout the four hours of the
rally, the mother kept screaming, "Death to Jews!" and,
"Khaibar, Khaibar!" at the top of her lungs. Looking
at her baby, thinking of my own, sadness overwhelmed me. I saw a four
year old child wearing a T shirt emblazoned with a print of Hassan Nasrallah,
the leader of Hizballah. The child was chanting along with everyone else.
Khaibar" was chanted at that rally and at many others. It echoed all
over the country, as Israeli flags burned in the background, from Florida to
Texas, New York to California, and back to Washington, D.C. To an
outsider, this chant, "Khaibar, Khaibar, Ya Yahud, Jaish Muhammad
Safayood," sounded perhaps like a cheerful freedom song. Many
journalists told me that this was what they thought they were hearing.
But its meaning is somewhat different: "Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews, the army
of Muhammad is coming for you." This song originates in a tale from
the days of the Prophet Muhammad. As part of his campaign to conquer the
Arabian peninsula, Muhammad laid siege to the city of Khaibar, which was
inhabited by Jews. After losing several battles to the city's powerful
army, Muhammad decided to try a new tactic. He sent emmissaries to
Khaibar's leaders with a message of peace. As soon as a peace treaty was
signed and the gates of the city were opened, Jaish Muhammad, Muhammad's army,
stormed the city and butchered every last one of its inhabitants.
"Khaibar, Khaibar" means "Let's trick the Jews into making peace
with us, and when they accept our offer, let's go ahead and kill them

after so many emotional rallies lately, I still couldn't believe my ears.
Was this guy for real, to publicly support terrorist organizations such as
Hizballah, the terrorist organization that is second only to al-Qaeda in the
amount of American blood on its hands? The organization responsible for
the murder of of hundreds of United States soldiers in Beirut and at the Khobar
Towers in Saudi Arabia?
American Muslim Council was considered by many a moderate Muslim
organization. Al-Amoudi had made a name as a Muslim moderate. He
was a regular visitor at the White House. And he publicly supported two
designated terrorist organizations - right in front of the White House.

long as imams preach violence, violence won't be eradicated. These imams
live with us; they're our neighbors. They preach in the mosque around the
corner. Their followers listen, absorb, and learn. Some of them,
albeit not many, will decide to take the next step and turn words into actions.
Assassinations in the West of Non-believers
Those who dare to expose the dark side
of Islam risk assassination. Khalid Duran, the author of Children
of Abraham: An Introduction to Islam for Jews had a fatwa issued against
him for writing the book by a sheik who called for Duran's blood to be shed in
the Jordanian Arab language weekly newspaper Al Shahed on June 6, 2001.
He has gone into hiding. In an interview with the Jewish Week on July 6,
2001 he explained:
am certainly not taking this lightly..I have had so many friends and associates
Aaron Cohen told the New York
Post (Oct 18, 2001) how there is a fatwa against him because of his campaign to
stop Muslims in the north of Sudan from enslaving the Christian/animist tribes
in the south. He learned of the fatwa after returning from a fact-finding
mission to Sudan where he videotaped exidence of slavery and gave his footage
to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Soon after Cohen's name
appeared on a death list in an extremist publication linked to al Qaeda.
He has changed his name.

Bishop Dolli, an Episcopal bishop from
Sudan was in Washington in the week of Oct 15-19 2001 at the invitation of the
Institute on Religion and Democracy. He attempted to warn Congress and anyone
else who would listen of the dangers to his country and the United States posed
by Islam, especially in its militant form. The Bishop said that The
congregation of All Saints Cathedral in Khartoum, a peaceful assembly of
Christians, was recently disbanded and many members were arrested, tried in
kangaroo courts and either imprisoned or punished by caning.
In Sudan, says Bishop Dolli, many Christian church
buildings have been either bulldozed or bombed from the air. Non-Muslims
suffer persecution in employment, and all women, whether Muslim or not, are
forced to wear the black chador and veil. The government army has been renamed
"Jundy Allah" (the Army of Allah) and they fight Jihad (holy war)
against those in Southern Sudan and non-militant Muslims.
Slavery continues to be practiced by the murahaleen,
members of government-backed militias who regularly conduct raids against Christians
in Southern Sudan. The murahaleen have killed thousands, enslaved children and
young women, stolen cattle, plundered and burned food stores and crops and are
reported by various human-rights organizations to have raped both men and
women. According to the New York Post (10/21/02) up to 15,000 people are
held as slaves in the Sudan, and more have been traded to other Arab countries.
More than 2 million Sudanese civilians are estimated
to have died since 1983 as a result of the continuing warfare, according to the
IRD. Many millions more have been forced to flee their homes. Bishop Dolli says
radical Islam's goal is to dominate the entire African continent with its
militant, oppressive, dangerous and increasingly popular brand of religion.
So-called "Islamic moderates," in the bishop's view, are among the
first targeted for extermination by the extremists, even before they go after
Jews and Christians.
According to Middle East News Line (10/16/01)
"Moderate" Saudi Arabia arrested least 15 Christians from
Africa in August to October of 2001 for conducting non-Islamic services in
private homes. Three of them are said to have been tortured in prison. Saudi
Arabia does not allow the worship of any other religion other than Islam. Jews
are not allowed in the kingdom and Christians are warned that they risk arrest
if they participate in private prayer gatherings.
According to Islam those who
convert from the faith must be killed. Jeff Jacoby in his article Durban,
racism, and Islamism (Boston Globe, 9/3/2001) wrote how:
Islamist dictators, the Taliban, announced that six international aid workers
who have been jailed on charges of preaching Christianity will be put on trial.
As for the 16 Afghans arrested with them, they will face the death penalty if
they are found to have converted from Islam.
Luckily the workers were saved by the

Muslim regimes oppress their own
people if their own people support the infidel. After the September 11th
attacks there were candlelight vigils in Iran in solidarity with the
victims. Jack Kelly (Who Hates Us? New York Post 9/13/02) wrote that:
most courageous and least reported, Sept. 11 observance took place in
Iran. Thousands of Iranians, most of them young people, braved arrests
and beatings by the secret police to hold candlelight vigils in memory of those
who died in the World Trade Center, in the Pentagon and in a field in Somerset
(Student Mobilization Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran) reported
dozens of arrests and beatings and that police had opened fire on demonstrators
in the Western Iranian city of Mahabad.
