Growing up I was always taught to be respectful of others and the way they chose to follow their religion or set of beliefs. Religion was never forced on me, however I was raised with Christian values and the teachings of Jesus Christ to love thy neighbor and be a forgiving person. I was raised with ethical, civil, and moral obligations as a human being. We all grow up with certain ethical and moral beliefs, some more ethical than others. This is a fact of life.
I briefly learned about the basics of Islam in Junior High and in High School. I never thought much of this belief system until I was in college years later. My World History professor, born in Africa, condemned Islam and taught us the truth about Muhammad their prophet, a hallucinogenic pedophile warlord who claimed “Allah” would speak to him. After many lessons, I knew that Islam was not a religion of peace but a “religion” of terror, subjugation, and conversion by force or death. I sincerely questioned these beliefs and did not agree with such barbarism. Nobody called me a racist, bigot, or an Islamophobe then, 7 years ago. In fact, the whole class agreed that Islam was incompatible with Western values and beliefs. We all agreed that such a barbaric way of life was not acceptable. So what has changed?
Fast forward to November 18th, 2015 Paris is attacked by Islamic terrorists resulting in the brutal murder of 130 people. Paris is special to me and I was completely heartbroken for the victims, their families, and France. Closer to home, The United States deeply mourns the 2996 lives lost during 9/11 due to Islamic terrorists. It was very difficult to comprehend such indifference to human life. Islam apologists everywhere where quick to defend Islam rather than condemn the Islamic teachings in the Quran. Seemingly more worried about how Islam and Muslims would be viewed than the victims themselves.
Quran 9:29: Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdue.
Daily Mail UK: At least 129 people died in Paris on Friday night after eight terrorists, including one as young as 15, carried out the co-ordinated attacks. They struck the Stade de France, restaurants, and the packed Bataclan concert hall armed with AK-47s, grenades and wearing suicide vests.
Serbian media claim Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, whose Syrian passport was found on the body of a suicide bomber, allegedly blew himself up at the Bataclan concert hall.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks across Paris, saying ‘eight brothers wearing explosive belts and carrying assault rifles’ conducted a ‘blessed attack on… Crusader France.
I read the Quran, I read my notes on Islam, researched Islam, and Muslims around the world. Islamic terrorism has resulted in gross violence, murder, and complete disregard for human life, especially for women and children. Staying silent was not an option for me, this is why I speak out against Islam with such vigor. Islam teaches terrorism, verse after verse it speaks of Jihad and to terrorize the nonbelievers until they convert or kill them if they don’t. This isn’t a myth. There are at least 109 terror verses in the Quran. Why anyone would negate this obvious connection or say its false is beyond me. You are lying to us and to yourself. Would you believe a murderer’s innocence as they stand above their victim’s body bathed in blood?
Quran 47:4: So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost,
Is this not Islam? The Quran then goes on to say that if you deny any verses you will forever be in torment referring to hell.
Quran 78:24-30: They will not taste therein [any] coolness or drink. Except scalding water and [foul] purulence an appropriate recompense. Indeed, they were no expecting an account and denied Our verses with [emphatic] denial. But all things We have enumerated in writing. So taste [the penalty], and never will We increase you except in torment.
As a woman, I am especially sickened by Islamic teachings. It is incomprehensible how any woman or any so called “feminist” would ever defend the gross oppression against women that Islam teaches. In fact, a woman’s word is worth half of a man. Women are slaves to men and they must obey them or suffer the brutal consequences. Honor killings is a disgusting evil practice in Islam where women who do not comply, for example with a marriage, are killed to preserve the families so called “honor.”
Surah 4:15: “If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four (reliable) witness from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them. Or God ordain for them some (other) way.”
CNN A British woman murdered in a suspected “honor killing” incident in Pakistan was raped before her death, Pakistani police say.
Shahid’s former husband, Chaudhry Muhammad Shakeel, was held on suspicion of murder, and confessed last month to having strangled her to death with her scarf, Ghazanfar said. Shakeel was also Shahid’s first cousin.
The dead woman’s father, Chaudhary Shahid, has also been remanded on suspicion of having been an accessory to her murder, Ghazanfar said.
I find it truly bizarre that any person in their right mind would defend Islamic teachings. Men are in charge of women and are allowed to beat them? Am I supposed to be okay with this?
Quran 4:34 Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
Women are stoned to death for committing adultery or for simply being accused of it. If a woman is raped it requires 4 eyewitnesses from men for her to be believed and even yet she will still be stoned to death. This is practiced in majority Muslim countries and yet the left is silent on it.
Quran 4:15: Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.
CNN- WATCH Men surround the woman as she stands in a hole dug into the stony ground, only her head pokes above the surface. Then they begin to pick up rocks and hurl them at her again and again from close range.
Her agonized cries grow louder as the barrage of stones intensifies.
I have a few question for liberals, why do you remain silent and cover your eyes and ears with the truth about Islam? Women and child brides in Muslim countries are suffering. In fact, Muhammad married 9 year old Aisha. The practice of marrying children in Muslim countries remains and nobody talks about this disgusting violation of human rights. Furthermore, this practice is sneaking into Western countries. The left conjures up any criticism of Islam as racist or lslamophobia when Muslim is not a race, it’s a way of life. At what cost are you willing to ignore and turn a blind eye to violations of human rights?
Breitbart: The trend of underage migrant girls entering Germany married to older men is on the rise, with the city of Berlin recording 100 child marriages this year alone.
There have been reports that in Germany in total there could be well over 1,000 child marriages, the vast majority of them between young girls and older men
We must reject and not be willing to allow hijrah, which is Muslim migration to advance and spread Islam, it is proven that assimilation doesn’t work. Liberals, does it make you feel better to pretend that Sweden is not a rape capital due to the influxes of Muslim migrants? Or the rapes that have been happening across Germany? Ignorance is bliss until that ignorance causes human suffering as a result of turning a blind eye to the barbarism that is Islam. Perhaps, you wish to brag about humanitarian efforts and how good it feels to accept Muslim refugees under these false pretenses. Why did the Muslim men fleeing Syria leave their women behind? The true cost of being called tolerant is denouncing basic human rights.
Gatestone Institute: In 1975, the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the former homogeneous Sweden into a multicultural country. Forty years later the dramatic consequences of this experiment emerge: violent crime has increased by 300%.
If one looks at the number of rapes, however, the increase is even worse. In 1975, 421 rapes were reported to the police; in 2014, it was 6,620. That is an increase of 1,472%.
Sweden is now number two on the global list of rape countries. According to a survey from 2010, Sweden, with 53.2 rapes per 100,000 inhabitants, is surpassed only by tiny Lesotho in Southern Africa, with 91.6 rapes per 100,000 inhabitants.
Female genital mutilation is something rarely discussed and yet is an essential stepping stone for young girls to undergo this disgusting practice.
WHO – Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. The procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths. More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia where FGM is concentrated1. FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15. FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.
WHO claims that female genital mutilation has no religious basis, however it is clear that Islamic jurisprudence allows this per the Hadiths. This practice is prevalent in majority Muslim countries and is definitely a cultural issue.
Sunan Abu Dawud 5251–Umm Atiyyat al-Ansariyyah said: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet said to her: Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.
Liberals champion themselves as firm believers and supporters of human rights, women’s rights, and LGBTQ rights, however if Islam violates these rights that is perfectly acceptable in the name of tolerance? Hillary Clinton says that Muslims are peaceful tolerant people but upon closer observation, where is the peace and tolerance? The Quran condemns gays and demands for their death and calls them criminals. In fact, they are thrown off buildings and brutally murdered for being gay. This isn’t happening in The United States, you may think refusal to bake a cake is disturbing but being thrown off a building? Where is the outrage? Where is the condemnation?
Quran 7:80-84 And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, “Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.” But the answer of his people was only that they said, “Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure.” So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; she was of those who remained [with the evildoers]. And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.
Understand what is said here, gays are to be stoned until death for they are criminals.
Express UK: Saudi government ‘wants to EXECUTE gay people who show their sexuality in public & online’
Saudi law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media
Let’s not forget that Hillary Clinton receives millions from Saudi Arabia, a country that wants to execute gays and oppresses women, then she claims to be pro LGBTQ and pro Women’s rights.
If not agreeing with the practices and teaching of Islam means being intolerant, then call me bigot. I will not denounce my moral and ethical obligations as a human being and accept such a violent and oppressive ideology. I will not listen to Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama tell me that Islam is peaceful as the world burns and US suffers with three terror attacks in one day at the hands of Muslims. There is a point where we as a nation must choose America first, the American people first. We have reached that pivotal moment. What will you choose?
