The First Step in Winning a War is Identifying the Enemy

Our politicians have enslaved themselves to Political Correctness. Both parties refuse to identify the enemy and that is Islam and the devout followers of Islam. Terms like “Radical Islam” or “Islamic Extremist” just further obscure the truth. Trying to separate the ideology of Al Qaeda from Islam is a distinction without a difference. Al Qaeda are doing exactly as Mohammad commanded. They are following the teachings and example of Mohammad.
There is no such thing as “Radical Islam” or “Moderate Islam”. Islam is only radical relative to Western Culture. As the Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Erdogan, said, “Islam is Islam, and that’s it!”
Islam is about Law, Sharia Law. All devout Muslims are required to put Sharia Law above man made law, e.g., the US Constitution. Therefore devout Muslims cannot be loyal citizens of the United States.
Mohammad was a politician, a warrior, a thief, a slave holder, a murderer, a torturer, a rapist, and a pedophile. Mohammad and Islam’s success came not from teaching peace as Mohammad did in Mecca but from violent conquest by Mohammad after he moved to Medina. It is quite telling that year 1 in the Islamic Calendar is 622 AD, the year in which Mohammad established the first Islamic political community in Medina.
Mohammad is the highest Moral Authority on Islam. He is Islam’s sacred Prophet. Criticizing Mohammad is blasphemy punishable by death under Sharia Law. Mohammad is the “Ideal Muslim” which all devout Muslims are commanded to emulate.
Mohammad advocated Jihad of the sword (warfare) and Jihad of the pen (war propaganda) against all Kuffar or Kafir (non-believers). He deemed Jihad the highest moral activity (as opposed to farming or trading) for a Muslim to engage in.
There is only one Quran and one Sunnah (the Hadith & the Sira – words and deeds of Mohammad). 2/3’s of the occurrences of the term “Jihad” in the Quran refer to violent warfare against the Kuffar (non-believers). The Hadith and the Sira are even more violent.
Sharia Law is derived from the Quran and the Sunnah. There is no separation of church from state in Islam. The only accepted form of government in Islam is despotic rule by Sharia Law. Voting is shirk (unforgivable sin) unless it serves the end goal of bringing about an Islamic government. As Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Erdogan said, “democracy is a train where you can get off when you reach your destination.”
There are “Moderate Muslims” but the term, “Moderate Muslim,” is a misnomer. One should never confuse the actions of a professed Muslim with the Doctrine of Islam. A “Muslim” is a human being and humans profess to be many things without their actions being consistent with what they profess. “Moderate Muslims” are cultural/secular Muslims who have adopted the ways of the West, i.e., they do not adhere to Sharia Law. Therefore they are NOT practicing some enlightened form of Islam. They are not practicing Islam at all.
The absence of ISLAM is NOT ISLAM.

    is the religion of peace – right ?

    Islam Does Not
    Mean Peace


    Islam only means peace to Muslims who blindly submit. To Christians
    Islam means war, persecution and death.

    The Qur’an says: “Fight and slay the pagans [Christians] wherever ye find them and
    seize them, confine
    them, and lie in wait for them in every place of
    ambush” (Surah 9:5)

    Kill the unbelievers wherever you
    find them. Koran 2:191

    Make war on the infidels living in
    your neighborhood. Koran 9:123

    When opportunity arises, kill the
    infidels wherever you catch them. Koran

    Any religion other than Islam is not
    acceptable. Koran 3:85

    The Jews & Christians are
    perverts, fight them. Koran 9:30

    Maim and crucify the infidels if
    they criticize Islam. Koran 5:33

    Punish the unbelievers with garments
    of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water

    & melt their skin &
    bellies. Koran 22:19

    The unbelievers are stupid; urge the
    Muslims to fight them. Koran 8:65

    Muslims must not take the infidels
    as friends. Koran 3:28

    Terrorize & behead those who
    believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.
    Koran 8:12

    Muslims must muster all weapons to
    terrorize the infidels. Koran 8:60

    • The Quran and the Sunnah is definitely not overflowing with peace, love, or tolerance for non-believers.

  • A few more verses:

    Hadith Al Buhkari vol. 9:57 “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”

    Sura 2:190 “Slay them wherever you find them. Fight against them till idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme”

    Sura 4:89 “seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Sura 4:103 “Seek out your enemies relentlessly”

    Sura 5:51: “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them.”

    Sura 8:36 “Make war on them till idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme”

    Sura 9:121 “Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you”

    Sura 33:64: “Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers (whom he defined as Christians in the 5th surah “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends.) and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior. That Day their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire. They will say: ‘Woe to us! We should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!’ ‘Our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!’”

    Sura 47:3 “When you meet the unbelievers on the battlefield strike off their heads”

    Sura 66:7 “Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate”

    Sura 72:15 “The disbelievers are the firewood of hell.”

    Sura 86:17 “Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile).”

    Sura 98:6 “Surely those who disbelieved from among the People of the Book and the polytheists shall be in Hell fire, abiding therein forever; they are the worst of creatures.”
