Truth Be Told

By Amil Imani


Are you fed up with numerous daily horrific acts that are clearly committed under the banner of Islam throughout the world? Are you tired of hearing it? Well, so am I. However, I have to inform you that it is only going to get worse before it finally disappears into the dustbin of history. The savagery and variety of actions of Islamic extremists are seen daily around the globe committed under the banner of Islam, have become so commonplace that the world has come to view them as the normal part and parcel of a troubled humanity. And, from time-to-time, the world is shocked into a passing and momentary realization of the evil deeds these Islamist robots commit and quickly gets over it and does nothing to seriously address this affliction of humanity.

Numerous criminal acts are also committed on a daily basis, by non-Muslims. The critical difference is that non-Muslim criminals do not hoist a religious banner to justify their misdeeds, while Muslims proudly claim that they commit their heinous acts in obedience to the dictates of their religious faith.

Humanity is facing a deeply troubling dilemma. On the one hand is the desire of enlightened people whose aim it is to forge a world of diverse people into one universal society ruled by peace and justice for everyone while, on the other, Islamists are hell-bent on imposing their Stone-Age system on everyone. Tellingly, the Muslims themselves are at one another’s throat[1] regarding which of dozens of Islamic sects’ dogma should rule.

Right from the start, violence served as the engine of Islam under the command and supervision of Muhammad himself. For one, the Prophet’s son-in-law cousin, Ali, was titled the Commander of the Faithful for his unsurpassed feats of butchery. Ali with the assistance of one or two of his thugs, beheaded some seven hundred captives, most of them Jews, in only one day. This man, highly esteemed by the prophet of Allah, had a sword that had its own name—Zolfaquar. Ali’s portrait, holding the menacing sword, adorns the homes and shops throughout Shi’a’-lands. And the Shiites, at the same level as Muhammad, revere Muhammad’s executioner, Imam Ali.

On the Sunni side, Muhammad’s co-revered is Umar, another unabashed killer of untold numbers. And of course the choice weapon of these champions of the religion of peace was the sword. And to this day, a sword adorns the flag of the birthplace of the religion of peace, Saudi Arabia.

And Islam, by the nature of its very doctrine, appeals to man’s baser nature. It promotes intolerance, hatred, discrimination, and much more:

Qur’an:61:2 “O Muslims, why say one thing and do another? Grievously odious and hateful is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not. Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in a battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.

Truth be told as bitter as it may be. Islam is a violent ideology. Islam is anything but a religion of peace. Violence is at the very core of Islam. Violence is institutionalized in the Muslim’s holy book, the Quran, in many suras:

Qur’an:9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Qur’an:9:112 “The Believers fight in Allah’s cause; they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

Qur’an:8:39 “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”

Qur’an:8:65 “O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.”

Truth is not always welcome and can often be greatly disturbing. But truth is the best weapon against evil and falsehood. When I point out the horrific teachings of the Quran, I don’t make them up. I cite surahs from their holy book, surahs that exhort Muslims to carry out all kinds of evil deeds against non-Muslims. This book of Allah is a license to kill. When I point out that Muhammad set terrible examples for his followers by his own deeds, I cite from their own sources to document my assertion.

Is there anyone in this messed-up world who doesn’t read, see, or hear about the daily Islamic atrocities performed by these savages, with every act justified on the basis of Allah’s holy book?

Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

Self-described doctors of Islamic ideology universally practice sugarcoating the cult of Islam. They keep ranting about the importance of accepting things on faith, denigrate reason, dangle carrots and sticks, and demand unconditional surrender in return for guaranteed bliss and salvation. The masses toe the line, support the clergy’s lavish parasitic lifestyle and the charade continues. It works like a charm. Use the Jihad of the sword when it can and use the “Soft Jihad” until the sword can be unsheathed to finish the job. And don’t forget, the end justifies any and all means, Islam apologists keep on preaching to the hordes.

Islam apologists never present the naked face of Islam. They never speak of the Islam that thrives on hate, throws acid[2] in the face of women who fail to don the hijab or girls going to school; flogging people for sporting non-Islamic haircuts, stoning to death,[3] violators of sexual norms and other forms of Islamic brutalities such as Honor Killing.[4] They never talk about institutionalized pedophilia in Islam.

Moderate Muslims dilemma

Wishy Washy and Real Muslims

In my opinion, cultural Muslims (Muslims in name only), or better known in the west as “Moderate Muslims” are a wavering segment who are caught between their imprinted belief in Islam, their disillusionment and problem with many aspects of the secular society, and their personal fantasies.

These people will continue wavering and reach for any straw to balance themselves. Not an easy task. Being a Muslim, no matter how little a Muslim, gives these vast numbers of people, many bewildered and overwhelmed by modern life’s complexities and contradictions, a kind of refuge. They yearn for safety, for immortality of the soul if not the body; they want all the pleasures of physical life, yet they want to make sure that they are also providing for the life after death by pleasing Allah. So, as you can surmise, this whole thing is extremely complicated. It is a most difficult task to give up the concocted and imaginary life vest that Islam seems to provide for these people. They have nothing else to grab onto.

Another religion? Would it be any better? Would it serve them both in this world and the next? Would it relieve their personal existentialistic crises? These are all tough issues. Most humans need to believe in something. Something bigger than themselves, something that would give them, or at least hold the promise of granting them, their wishes at little cost.

Religion of one form or another seems to be the most attractive source for the masses to turn to. Of course there are other sources. Many to be sure. Yet, all exact a price. Becoming a nihilist, for instance, and not believing in anything and leading life on a moment-to-moment basis is one way to go. A life that is akin to a rudder-less ship that drifts in circles until it sinks. This kind of life is extremely disturbing to the person and may lead him to resort to auxiliary activities such as excessive drinking, use of mind-numbing drugs, sexual promiscuity, and much more.

Yet, for one and all, there is a price to pay. Humans seem to be unable to exist in a psychological and spiritual vacuum. They need to believe in something to maintain a degree of self-sanity and stability. Islam provides a degree of this highly sought stability and security. For this reason leaving it altogether, even for the highly educated and for a person who knows better is extremely difficult.

It is indeed baffling to me that a particular tyrannical group of fanatics claim to represent the Creator of all and pass judgment who is to live in peace and who is to suffer horrific treatments. This mentality is the ultimate form of arrogance and the world must confront and erase it by a united effort. Enough is enough. This is the 21st century and people all over the world must be afforded the freedom to lead their lives, pray as they like, and be protected under fair laws.

It is truly sad that these people are driven by a horrific lower nature trait of hate. Love is alien to them, justice only limited to their own, and tolerance is something that they have nothing to do with. Sad, very sad indeed. They are like bats — beasts of darkness. They hate the light of love. How sad, indeed. We should do what Christ said: Pray for them, for they do not know better.

In short, Islam is busy with what it did from the time of its birth, fighting non-Muslims and infighting. Truth be told: Violence is the animating force of Islam. Islam is a religion born through violence, raised by violence; it thrives on violence and dies without violence.

Respected all here in this forum,

I respect every bodies opinions but unfortunately I need to tellyou that many here are not even aware of Islam and what it is. They are just going away and flowing away with what media is propagating due to vested interests of some But factually Islam as a religion is not violent neither it teaches violence. It is in whole a complete religion with state and personal both dictated in clear terms. And what my dear friends above have given certain versus from Quran cannot be taken in that sense at all since it is a whole book and not one verse can give a meaning. You need to read the whole book and understand and analyze it the proper sense and in what sense or circumstance these have been told and to be executed. You cannot judge a movie with one dialogue said by an actor in it. You need to see the whole movie to have a feeling of what exactly it is. Like any religion started they had to defend themselves from the major reigning religions of that time. Please respect sirs above don’t try to create hatred more in this some bunch of fanatics are doing and making the world unpeacefull. Let us all unite and try to eliminate these from the society and exist together peacefully. After all we are all humans and not animals who are not civilized. I hope the efforts here you all are putting to hate Islam if put for humanitarian causes will at least help the world and mankind…..

I am sorry if I am hurting a few here…and I am there always if anybody wants to know the truth instead of falling pray for the western media which is just in the interests of a few greedy and for their own interests.

This your whole movie: Facts bout muhammad you aren’t taught by the imams: -

1) Muhammad ordered raids on innocent caravans and stole their stuff to pay for his “ummah”‘s expenses

2) Muhammad murdered people and stoned people to death

3) Muhammad cut people’s hands and feet off for petty theft but himself robbed from innocent caravans

4) Muhammad said only have 4 wives but disobeyed his own allah (coz he knew he made up allah) and married 12 wives one of which was 9 YEARS OLD when he was 53 YEARS OLD

5) Muhammad asked muslims to constantly be scared and live a life of fear from allah and always hate non-muslim kuffar infidels

6) Most people left islam when muhammad died but abu bakar wen

MUHAMMAD’S CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY: - ============================

When he [Muhammad] asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so Muhammad gave orders to Zubayr, “TORTURE HIM until you extract what he has.” So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to bin-Maslama and HE STRUCK OFF HIS HEAD.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 764)

“When Muhammad ordered him to be killed, Uqba said, “But who will look after my children, O Muhammad?” [Muhammad’s reply] “Hell.” The man was put to death. (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 458)

Magic: I don’t know where you hale from, but your English is execrable. You’re not hurting anyone. Amusing them, perhaps, but any pain we might feel comes from laughing too much. I suspect you are a Muslim troll. That being said, allow me to correct you on a few of your points:

1. To counter your last point, the Western media are largely on the side of Islam. When Muslims murder, rape non-Muslim women, engage in crime to raise money for jihadists, go on car-bombing rampages and the like in the West, they are usually portrayed as “victims” of one thing or another: unemployment, “intolerance,” “Islamophobia,” “misunderstanding,” and so on. They use terms such as “Muslim fanatic,” “extremist,” “Asian,” “youth,” to disguise the fact that the perpatrators are Muslims acting out the Koran and Islam’s basic aggressive imperatives.

2. The “whole book” of the Koran is horrendous, with the later, violent, anti-Semitic, anti-non-Muslim verses (not “versus”) abrogating the earlier ones. Islamic scholars confirm this. The Hadith is a collection of barbarous anecdotes and homilies of a brigand, thief, robber, rapist, killer otherwise known as Mohammad. There are evidence and arguments that the Koran is a work of fiction, because the first compilation of it occurred a century after Mohmmad’s death (632), and it is very likely that he did not even exist, but was concocted by tongue-in-cheek imams to centralize a bizarre cult. So, the Koran has indeed been judged in its entirety.

3. Islam is a totalitarian system dressed in religious garb. Its advocates seek power for the sake of power. There is no other reason for them to advance it. Everything in the Koran sanctions their every depredation against Jews and other non-believers. Mr. Imani makes that quite clear in his article here. Because it is, as you put it, a “whole a complete religion with state and personal both dictated in clear terms,” that makes it totalitarian and incompatible with life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.

4. Islam is a cancerous doctrine that must be opposed, repudiated, and extinguished before it makes further inroads in the West.

I think everyone in this forum sees islam for what it is, we are after all the ‘converted’ in this matter. I remind every one I know quietly of what islam is and have a copy of the koran in my phone and memory stick so I can transfer it to anyone who is unsure or inquisitive. I always insist that I am not a credible witness, let the prophet speak for himself.

It cannot be made to ‘go away’, islam has been here for 1400 years and like Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism or Hinduism they will persevere because they are spiritual. They survive everything, think of the upheavals of the world over the last few *thousand* years.

I think many believing (and unbelieving) people are starting to see islam for what it is – the physical incarnation of the blackest and basest evil the world has ever seen. It can be defeated very, very easily – quarantine these people in their lands, do no allow them entry to our countries, no not sell them the technological tools we offer, repatriate all who already live in our midst. Yes this will never happen, so now we ask, it will get worse, worse then we can imagine, when will we make our stand ? islam offers no inspiration, hope or enlightenment to humanity, its followers flock to the nations of people they despise, and we stand and watch and do nothing. What do we leave for our children ?

Reply Herman says: April 5, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Indeed Robert: “What do we leave for our children ?”

It sometimes looks like an endless fight we are going to loose. Not only do we face this criminal 7th century barbaric cult, that has nothing given to the world but the lowest of life: robbing, murdering, raping and pedophilia.

But worst of all: mostly if not always leftist idiots (be it socialists in Europe, liberals (libtards) in Canada or democRATs in the US keep on defending this cult: all of them seem to have the same agenda: Get all religion out of (public) life and then defending islam by way of ‘freedom of religion’.

I have worked with a few Muslims over the years and as every day people they seem pretty normal. But when they are seen as a group they take on different attributes. The once humble soft spoken person or neighbor now is more outspoken and more demanding of respect. Any questions about their religion are viewed as insults and are met with frowns. If this is the macro version of Islam what in the hell can we expect of the world wide view? ANY religion that teaches supremacy is wrong and dangerous to all others of different faiths or no faiths. There is no good version of Islam and the sooner we as free people of the world rise up and tell them NO MORE violence or else, the sooner the world will be stable again.

RUTH says: March 31, 2012 at 11:48 am

The truth is that islam is a radical expansionist, militaristic, seditious faux-religion. There are no moderate muslims any more than there are moderate Nazis or moderate KKK members, or moderate white supremecists. By pretending to be a religion, islam gets a free pass from the well-meaning Judeo-Christians who understand bigotry, persecution and the evil of the Holocaust. Those believers understand how important freedom of religion must be for the world to survive. The bottom line is simple: if you read and understand the koran and sharia law, you know the truth of islamic sophistry.

Army says: March 31, 2012 at 11:44 am

I cannot say this enough times, but Islam is a political system MASQUERADING as a religion. It’s an evil system and is a far cry from a benevolent, “religion of peace.” In Islam, there is no concept of sin, such as exists with Christians and Jews. A Moslem can commit any act of barbary, rape, theft, MURDER as long as it promotes Islam, or is against an Infidel or non-believer.

Mohammed (AKA U’bul Kassim) invented Islam as a recruiting tool for pirates, brigands and cutthroat thieves and as a means of keeping them in line. Islamics have been at war with all others since the invention of Islam.

Only by a serious, horrendous defeat on the battlefield, can Islam ever be tamed. And then, only until they gain strength again. The continued transfer of TRILLIONS of petro-dollars to the Moslem world has only strengthened Islam and once again set it off on a path to world conquest. Wake-up folks! No such thing as a “moderate Moslem.” To deny this or pretend otherwise is to risk conquer via Jihad and forced conversion to either death or Islam.

A fascinating article Mr. Imani. Here is my thoughts about the so called Moderate Muslims. In medieval times, people created fairy tales and magical creatures to make sense of their world. One of the most endearing is the unicorn, a horse with a single horn that symbolized purity and wholesomeness. In our modern times, people in Europe and the United States consider themselves more sophisticated and rational than people from the Middle Ages, but we still create myths, albeit more subtle ones.

Daily we hear reports of violent acts committed by Islamic terrorists on every inhabited continent. We try to wish it away with the myth of the ‘Moderate Muslim’, telling ourselves the Islamic agenda has been’ hijacked’ by a ‘tiny minority of extremists’ and that soon the huge, silent, moderate majority of Muslims will take charge and change things. However, post 9/11 very few Muslims have condemned terrorist actions. We are still waiting for moderates to stand and deliver, identifying and removing extremist thugs from their mosques and their communities. Waiting for this self-correction is our modern version of searching for unicorns.

Moderate Muslims will not be able to wrest control of the agenda for several reasons. First of all, Mohammad, the Messenger of Allah’s eternal word, was not moderate. No moderate can legitimately tell another Muslim to stop doing the extremist things Mohammad himself did. Also, the Qur’an condones violence and coercion to further the Islamic agenda. People whom we call moderates are labeled hypocrites by Allah Himself in the Qur’an. Moderates will always lose the argument because, as ex-Muslim author Ibn Warraq says, “There may be moderates in Islam but Islam itself is not moderate.”

Islamic expert Daniel Pipes and others estimate ten percent of the Islamic world to be militant. In 1933 when the Nazi party took control of Germany it had 2 million members, comprising only three percent of Germany’s sixty-six million citizens. A tiny minority of extremists can control a vast number of moderates, making them irrelevant. Placing hope in ‘The Moderate Muslim’ is like searching for unicorns in the forest.
