Also see chapters “Muslims are better”, “Make no friends with non-Muslims”, and “Incitement to dislike, hate and suppression”. This chapter overlap with those, but the others are about promotion of general dislike, distance from others and own superiority - making an "enemy-picture" - whereas this chapter mainly is about the direct incitement and motivation for war.
As shown in this book, Islam like it is thought in the Quran is a religion of hate, robbery, enslavement, discrimination and suppression, blood and war - in some ways good for male Muslims, but in principle at war with everyone else - at war to such an extent that according to Islam the world is split in just two parts, the area of Islam and the area of war. Believe it or not, but that is the official name in Islam for all area not dominated by Islam. This should give reason for thinking - we had an as honest book in the 1930s that too many did not want to believe in. That cost some 50 million lives and enormous destructions. “Mein Kampf” by Adolph Hitler.
It also should be reason for deep thinking why it suddenly changed from relatively benign and peaceful, to war and murder and rape and terrorism - not to forget discrimination and hate against all outsiders, and especially the Pagans – in and after 622 AD. Was it Allah who found he had made a mistake, or was it Muhammad who needed warriors?
As for the situation today, no Muslim country or combination of countries can meet the world in “normal” war - though a few would like to be able to do so, at least for “killing” Israel - a thing that is not possible today, because neither USA nor Europe can accept that Israel is destroyed. Like it or not.
There are at present only two ways of warfare open for them except for in local wars: Atomic weapons/weapons of mass destruction and terrorism.
Pakistan has atomic weapons - and is unstable. If militants are able to grab the power in Pakistan, atomic weapons may be used. If Hitler had had atomic weapons in 1944 and 1945, he had used them. A number of Muslim militants are more fanatic than Hitler - and are in addition sure they are fighting for a god that will take them directly to Paradise if they are killed. May be they would not bomb the west first - Europe is not essential enough for them, and USA far off for their rockets. But perhaps India. Or Israel after all. Or explode an atomic bomb in the hull far below all cargo in a ship in the harbour of New York or London or somewhere.Iran is aspiring for atomic weapons. They have huge reserves of oil - no. 5 in the world, as far as we know - and do not need atomic electricity. May be they would like to make it, but they do not need it. Besides: If they honestly were going only for electricity, there was no reason for not cooperating with the international communities. They have rockets to reach parts of Europe - and Israel. They at present may or may not be working towards that goal - at least for once in the future.
And then there are the terrorists - the other way of war open to them. The popular and politically correct theory is that terrorism derives from poverty. Get rid of poverty, and you get rid of terrorism.
Wrong. Terrorism derives from idealism - idealism run amok. Run by political and/or religious idealists and fanatics.
Neither is it mostly the poor that become terrorists. That simply is propaganda and wrong - they are youths from the middle class and sometimes the upper class. Often well-educated youths with one-tracked minds. This even more goes for self-murder terrorists - though for “local work” also others are recruited. Actually the leaders recruit any such terrorist they can find - some places even the poor and uneducated can bomb and kill. They even have schemes and psychology for how to handle possible prospects - youths one-tracked enough to do it, and others. Strangely enough the leaders - even at lower level - never practise self-murder bombing themselves (we have heard about just one exception and not high up).
One will never get rid of terrorism as long as:
End of poverty may help, but only help - and hardly when it comes to the religious terrorism, that even may grow stronger as they get more money from richer supporters.
In the short run, one has to fight terrorism with what weapons one has got. In the long run one can only become safe from Muslim terrorism by weakening the hate and killing side of the religion. Communist terrorism f. ex. was only reduced when it became clear that something was wrong with communism.
There is no other way for the world to really get rid of Muslim terrorism than to try to reduce the fanatic and hateful way of thinking many Muslims represent. It will take years and generations, but there will always be single-minded Muslim warriors and terrorists if not. Most likely it will never come to an end before the day Muslims start thinking about the reality behind their religion and the obvious fact they refuse to face: All that is wrong with and in the Quran - mistaken facts, other mistakes, invalid "signs" and "proofs", invalid logic, contradictions, etc. - prove 110% that something is seriously wrong with the religion.
But there is a good side to the problem: No one has to tell the Muslims anything but the full truth: There are so many mistaken facts, so many contradictions, and so many invalid statements, “signs”, and “proofs”, and so much else which is wrong in the book, that it is absolutely obvious that something is wrong with the Quran and hence with the religion. Especially many of the mistaken facts and the contradiction are easy to show. But also how logically invalid many of the “signs” and “proofs” are, and how illogical it is for an omniscient god to use such ones. That and the question: Why the fast and very marked change of the teaching around 622 AD from a peaceful religion to a religion of hate, suppression, rape, robbery, and blood? Was there perhaps a benevolent Allah leading Muhammad for 12 years, but then Muhammad had to highjack the religion to gain enough warriors to stay alive and gain power?
At least at one point there is no discussion: There are lots and lots mistaken facts and contradictions in the book. Every devout Muslim protest, but the mistakes are easy to see anyhow for anybody with some education and able to read. That should do some job, if one could only get it through the religious blindness of many Muslims.
But also beware of what George Bush did not take notice of: The fanatic minds. And the fatalism towards setbacks. Not to mention the imprinted and imprinted statement: Persevere and the enemy give in. F. ex. Spain killed many humans in the future by backing out of Iraq - it “proved” that terrorism works against soft western regimes and people.
And the fact that it sometimes works, sometimes seems to work, and sometimes can be claimed works (f. ex. the economical depression in 2008 and onwards was because of the expenses the West had had because of the Muslim warriors and terrorists according to some claims), is one of the reasons why it continues.
But do not be naïve enough to believe poverty is the main reason – neither for the way of thinking, nor for Islam’s ability to produce “normal” terrorists or self murderer ones.
And also remember the word Muslims are impressed and impressed and impressed: Persevere, persevere, persevere, persevere – and the opponent or enemy gives in in the end.
Below we add some of the incitements behind the terrorists’ ways of thinking. If you look in the chapters about incitements to war and war, you will find more.
001 2/45: “Nay, seek (Allah’s) help with patient perseverance - - -”. Then you win in the end.
002 2/153: “Seek help with patient perseverance and Prayer, for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.” Keep struggling and the enemy gives in.
003 2/191: “- - - tumult (from non-Muslim underlings against Muslims*) and suppression (of Muslims*) are worse than slaughter (of non-Muslims*) - - -.” Plain speech: Kill the non-Muslims if they want (to stay in) ruling positions or try to suppress you. (The just situation is that Muslims shall rule and non-Muslims be suppressed underlings, according to the Quran). Kill them if they will not let you be the rulers.
004 2/193: “And fight them (non-Muslims*) until there is no more tumult or oppression”. (A state not obeying sharia – Muslim – laws, or a state prohibiting hijab, etc. according to many Muslims are oppressing and suppressing Muslims and Islam).See 2/191 just above.
005 3/15 + 17: “His (Allah’s*) servants (Muslims*) - - - who show patience, firmness, and self-control - - -”. They are good people and Allah will help them in the end.
006 3/146: “And Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast (in battle*)”. Another mighty incitement to primitive warriors – and terrorists - with strong belief.
007 3/151: “Soon shall We (Allah*) cast terror into the heart of the unbelievers - - -.” Of course. One more good pep-talk.
008 3/186: “You shall certainly be tried and tested - - -”. Difficulties are just Allah’s way of testing you, and you do not pass the test unless you keep fighting. (But why does an omniscient god need to test you - he knows everything already?)
009 3/186: “But if ye persevere patiently - - - then that will be a determining factor in all affairs”. Keep fighting and you will win.
010 3/200: “Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper”. If George Bush had read this, he had listened to his generals and used more troops - for once USA used too few troops in an invasion when they invaded Iraq.
011 4/76: “- - - fight ye against the friends of Satan - - -“. Of course you want to do that – and of course all non-Muslims are friends of Satan.
012 4/95: “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive in the cause of Allah with their goods and their person. Allah hath granted a grad higher to those who strive with their goods and their persons”. Clear words: Go to war or terrorism and end in a better part of Paradise. Incitement “de luxe”.
013 4/95 + 96: “- - - those who strive hath Allah distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward – Ranks specially bestowed by Him (Allah*), and Forgiveness (for anything if you are killed in battle*) and Mercy.” No doubt who is the best Muslim and what is the best deed in Islam – the warrior and the war are most pleasing to Allah. (To call Islam “The religion of peace” is an insult to the intelligence of everybody that has read the surahs from Medina.)
014 8/12: “I (Allah*) will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them (making them unable to use a bow*) - - -.” A good incitement to the warriors and terrorists.
But is this really “The god of Peace" heading "the Religion of Peace”? To call this religion like it emerges from the Quran, for “the Religion of Peace” is an insult to the word and to the world – and the reason why the world does not laugh at the claim, is lack of knowledge.
015 8/39: “And fight with them (the Unbelievers who will not convert to Islam*) on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere”. Comments should be unnecessary. Fight war till Islam dominates everywhere. A never-ending order and incitement.
016 8/41: “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah (/Muhammad*) - - -.” Which means that 80% is for the warriors and leaders of the war – an economical incentive that for many a poor man counted much more than the religion – war and terror = good business. Many became well-to-do, many became rich, and some became very rich – and dream models for new generations of robber warriors and robber barons. But Muslims and Islam never mentions the cost in destruction and destroyed lives that was the price many had to pay for this unjust prosperity of the robbers and destroyers. It frequently took (the surviving) locals 200 years and more just to regain their standard of life, not to mention freedom. The warriors of the good and benevolent god of “the Religion of Peace” frequently mass murdered and massacred and enslaved “en gross” – and stole everything. The price the victims had and have to pay is totally uninteresting - Islam and its Muslims have never reached a cultural level where the suffering of the victims have counted one iota. Perhaps because empathy, moral philosophy, and philosophy of ethics was and is totally absent - the only moral codex is: What did (the morally degenerated highwayman, rapeist, and robber baron) Muhammad do?
017 8/46: “- - - be patient and persevering, for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.” Keep fighting, keep fighting - sooner or later you win. Or the enemy tires and pulls out.
018 8/65: “If there are twenty of you (Muslims*) patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred (non-Muslims) - - -”. Well, sometimes it is right.
019 8/65: “O Prophet! (Allah says*) Rouse the Believers to the fight.” Some words for a presumably good and peaceful and benevolent god. And some task for a god and perfect kind man representing a religion insisting to be a good, human and peaceful one. And terrorism is war, they say.
020 8/74: “Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith, in the cause of Allah as well as those who give (them) asylum and aid – these are (all) in very truth the Believers - - -.” A good verse also for terrorists.
021 8/66: “- - - Allah is with those who patiently persevere”. With or without Allah, the tactic may succeed if the opposition consists of soft persons.
022 9/19 “Do ye make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque (Kabah in Mecca*), equal to (the pious service of) those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and strive with their might and mind (= make war*) (see 9/16*) in the cause of Allah?”
Of course the active warriors – or terrorists - are best. F. ex. the warriors in Darfur and terrorists anywhere think they are doing a pious service by killing and murdering - - and gang raping like in Darfur and other places where it is more like normal wars, not hit and run - and of course stealing and robbing for “good and lawful” reward also in this world.
Yes, a good and human and benevolent religion.
And some future for non-Muslims - one place in the Quran, the warriors are reminded that there are places with rich spoils of war not taken yet. In the West? – or other places? It does not matter where – this verse tells once more that the warriors are the best Muslims - - - and spoils of war are tempting.
023 9/20a: “Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with their might and main (= fight with weapons*), in Allah’s cause, with their goods and their persons (= fighting personally in war or terrorism - “any stratagem of war”*), have the highest rank in the sight of Allah - - -”.
Terrorists and other warriors are doubtlessly the very best Muslims. Become one of them!
024 9/20 “- - - they (terrorists/warriors*) are the people who will achieve (salvation)”. At least the Quran is honest about some things - just like Hitler was in “Mein Kampf” - - - and few did believe Hitler until it was too late.
And not least: It is repeating one of the main incitements for war for Muhammad/Allah.
025 9/21: “Their (terrorists/warriors*) Lord (Allah*) doth give them glad tidings of a Mercy (that terrorists/warriors for Allah are forgiven practically any sin*) from Himself (from Allah personally*), of His good pleasure (for the fighting and murdering they have done for the good and kind god*), and the Gardens for them, wherein are delights (earth-like riches and women*) that endures”. The ultimate pep talk for war, terror and murder? In the name of a presumably peaceful religion and a kind and good god?
One question though: How do the women like to be sex toys for often primitive, uneducated, and "raw" warriors? We know Islam does not care for underdogs - only for the rough and brave good Muslims, and mainly Muslim men, but anyhow; how do those women and houries like this paradise?
026 9/22: “They (terrorists/warriors*) will live therein (in Paradise) for ever. Verily in Allah’s presence is a reward, the greatest (of all)”. Warriors/terrorists are in so high esteem in the eyes of Allah, that they will be invited to live in the parts of paradise that has Allah’s presence. (In the Muslim paradise some parts are even better than others - Jesus f. ex. only lives in the 2. heaven, whereas Moses was a better prophet and lives in heaven number four, and top prophets like Abraham and Muhammad of course in number seven, closest to Allah, who resides above number seven. In addition some regions of the heavens are better than others. (This mainly according to Hadiths.)
Compared to 9/21 just above this may be an even more ultimate pep talk.
***027 9/29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - -.” Not even an incitement, but a most clear order - - - in spite of “no compulsion in religion” (2/256).
028 9/40: “If ye help not (your Leader (then Muhammad - today any religious leader?*)), (it is no matter (for Allah helps*)).” This is said partly on a special background, but like so many places in the Quran, it may mean all Muslims at any time. Help your leaders in war and atrocities – just like what Muhammad needed help for.
029 9/95: “So leave them (the ones not wanting to wage war*): for they are an abomination, and Hell is their dwelling-place - a fitting recompense for the (evil) they did”. Not to hate and kill and steal and rob and rape and enslave and murder is an abomination and evil. In that way the raise of power for Muhammad and Islam would go slower?
To wage war is the absolute duty for any fit Muslim who can afford it. No misunderstanding possible.
Brave future world.
Do you still believe that Allah is the same god as the Yahweh in NT? Or that "Islam is the Religion of Peace?"
But it is a weighty incitement to naive, uneducated primitives.
030 11/49: “So persevere patiently: for the End is for those who are righteous.” The Muslims will win in the end if they keep fighting.
****031 47/4: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks - - -.” A clear order. AND BEWARE: ACCORDING TO OUR SOURCES THE WORDS "IN FIGHT" DOES NOT EXIST IN THE ARAB TEXT. IN THAT CASE THE REAL TEXT IS FAR MORE OMNIOUS AND "PEACEFUL": KILL THE UNBELIEVERS WHENEVER YOU CAN.
032 66/9: “O Prophet (Muhammad*)! Strive hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell - - -.” A clear order and a clear explanation why they are sub-human, and thus deserve to die. “Untermench” always are ok to kill – they deserve it. It also is the right of the “Übermench” to do so – and in the Quran no doubt the Muslims are the “Übermench”. (Quite like the Nazi philosophy - except that according to the Nazis, Arabs were "Untermench".(Übermench = super humans, Untermench = subhumans.)
033 64/17: “If you loan to Allah, a beautiful loan, He will double it to your (credit), and he will grant you Forgiveness - - -“. Very similare thinking to the worst medieval excesses made by the Roman Catholic Church once upon a time. But good slogans for recruiting warriors – and money.
There is a lot more like this - much of it just with other words. Add this to all the other pep talk for warriors in the Quran, and you get something that should never be forgotten - not even by USA.
And of course there is the problem of never knowing who the few are who will turn terrorists, and the not few who are willing to help them - with money at least. The 5. column. Some 30% of Muslims at least have sympathy or “understands why” terrorists are at work, international polls show - more and much more in some places.
And all the same: Never forget that the majority of Muslims absolutely do not want anything but peace and a quiet family life. The ideology of hate and war and suppression is detestable, but not so all the ones of them who are normal people.
It is too late to keep Islam at a distance - too many have immigrated to the west. The absolute majority have moved vest for economical reasons, but for Muslims to move into “enemy” territory and then later to try to take control, is a strategy of war frequently advocated in the Quran. That f. ex. was what happened in Indonesia. Besides a scattered few may move west because of or partly because of that ideology - but then it only takes a few to wreak havoc. May be one should not make the problem bigger until we see how the ones already here will develop - how the integration and the culture will develop. Though Paris and other places may be sinister warnings.
There are sides with Islam that are not good - and also with Muslim culture and societies. Sides that derive from the hate, rape, blood, and not least the suppression and discrimination that is propagated in the Quran and in the religion towards all outsiders. (If the Quran had been a normal book, it had been prohibited long time ago - and with a reason. One good reason - or many good reasons.)
For now one will have to fight those sides or aspects - and perhaps try to reduce or stop the immigration till one gets more knowledge and experience. Honestly speaking the experience till now is mixed, and the teaching of the Quran is as honest as in “Mein Kampf”, which also too many did not want to believe until it was too late. (In 1938 the world famous psychologist Carl Gustav Young compared the Nazi ideology with just Islam, and Nazism was quite popular in Muslim countries - though partly because they fought the British and the French, who both had colonies in Muslim area).
But for the future: To eliminate the risk of terrorism - or at least reduce it - the only way is to reduce the bloody sides of Islam. And one of the few ways to do it, is to make them understand that there really are lots of mistakes and other wrongs in the Quran, and that that means that something is wrong in the religion.
The good thing is that we as mentioned only need to tell them the very plain truths:
It will at best take time - one have to work and “patiently persevere”. And perhaps in the meantime “hurry slowly” with immigration.
That was the optimistic side. The pessimistic and likely realistic one, is that it is not likely that the problems will disappear until Muslims really see that something is wrong with the book and the religion – not only start asking questions, but understand. And that will not happen with the educational system Islam and Islamic nations have today.
Cairo, 17. April 2009.
NB: If you find any mistakes anywhere, please inform us. If it is a real mistake, it will be corrected.
NB, NB, NB:
1. Read first the 2 small chapters "Some Essentials for how the Quran is to be read and understood" (VII-10-1) and "The Quran is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated" (VII-10-2).
2. http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked by many Muslim authorities. To debate with persons in such areas, cut and paste what you want from the pages and send it under titles different from http://www.1000mistakes.com.
3. http://www.1000mistakes.com is one of 9 pages which Muslim organisetions warned especially against in 2008 and 2009 - it could make especially procelytes lose their belief in Islam; correct and "down-to-the-earth" information works. In this connection it is worth noting that in the "warning" http://www.1000mistakes.com was one of 3 which neither was accused of bringing wrong facts, nor of being a hate page.
4. Comment 141 (to verse 6/149) in “The Message of the Quran” (see point 5) explains (translated from Swedish) about Allah's claimed omniscience vs. man's claimed free will:
“With other words: The real connection between Allah’s knowledge about the future (and consequently about the unavoidable in what is to happen in the future*) on one side and man’s relatively (!!*) free will on the other – two statements that seems to contradict each other – lies outside what is possible for humans to understand, but as both statement are made from Allah (in the Quran*) both must be true”. Unbelievable. Blind belief is the only correct and intelligent way of life, even in the face of the utterly impossible!!
5. And an afterthought: In the book “The Message of the Quran”, certified by Al-Azhar Al-Sharif Islamic Research Academy in Cairo (one of the 2-3 top universities in the Muslim world on such subjects) in a letter dated 27. Dec. 1998, it is admitted rather reluctantly that there are no proofs for Allah, and that it is not possible to prove him. An additonal point here is that if there is no proof for Allah and impossible to prove him, automatically there also is no proof for, and impossible to prove Muhammad's claimed connection to a god. And if there is no Allah and/or no connection between Muhammad and a god, what then is Muhammad? - and what than is Islam? - a made up, invalid religion?
6. Further: All the mistakes, contradictions, etc. in that book prove 100% that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no god makes such and so many mistakes, etc. If then Islam is a made up religion, what then about all the Muslims who have been prohibitted from looking for a real religion (if such one exists)? And where will they in case wake up after living and practising such an inhuman war religion like Islam is according to the Quran (and to Hadiths), if there is a second life somewhere? - Hell or Paradise?
7. NB and PS: No matter how sure you are about something, if it is not proved, it is not knowledge, only belief or strong belief, and can be wrong. Only what is proved or possible to prove is knowledge.
(As http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked in many Muslim areas - which shows they are afraid of it and lack arguments (if they had real arguments for http://www.1000mistakes.com is wrong, blocking was unneccessary) - "cut and paste" whatever you want from it and send if you want to inform or to debate there. Remember to omit the name http://www.1000mistakes.com).
PS: If we are blocked centrally - f. ex. by spam (there is too much at times already from unfriendly sources) we will reopen with new address somewhere else, and announce the new address om f. ex. http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam. Also if your comments to us do not reach us, any comments posted on a thread with "1000 mistakes" in the title on that forum will be read by us - it is a big international debate page. We cannot answer on that page, though, as it is not safe enough - we have had death threaths (better to kill an opponent, than to check if a religion brainwashed into you only on the word of a man who even practised lies (f. ex. "war is deceit") and advocated breaking even your oaths if that gave a better result, is true ot made up - old beliefs are hard to question).
Please inform all and everybody and all relevant fora - f. ex. Internet pages for debate or information - about the address http://www.1000mistakes.com. It is information that is urgently needed by many, not least by Muslims. No god made a book with so many mistakes and other wrongs - and if the Quran and Islam are made up by humans or dark forces, where are the followers of this inhumanly dark and brutal war religion heading for in a possible next life?
