Ex-Muslim: Not All Muslims Are Bad, But…


Are all Muslims bad? Of course not, but I have also never seen anyone claiming that every single person who believes in Islam is a horrible human being. This issue is brought up much more by Muslims and Western progressives or apologists than by critics of Islam.

The short answer to this would be: No, of course they are not ALL bad, because there is every type of person in this world, and someone who comes from a horrible background can be better than one with a great background, but as said, I also probably never heard anyone sincerely claiming that every single Muslim is a horrible terrorist. There are significant numbers of Muslims, however, much more so than people of any other belief, who have horrible views about basic human rights that we have in the West today. They have unacceptable views about women, about free speech, about freedom of religion, about homosexuals and so much more. The mainstream media in the West and their supporters are never tired of bring up the 1%, claiming that radicals are only 1% of the world’s Muslim population. The problem is that they refer to armed terrorists who actually participate in terrorist activity as “radicals”. Well, radicals are not only those who actually kill people. What I, together with many others, would define as radical are those who clearly say that people who choose a different belief should be killed, that women have to be obedient creatures, that homosexuals should be persecuted and killed, that any form of criticism of Islam needs to be punished violently. Radicals would be people who want to implement sharia law because the sharia includes these and many more disgusting things.

There are so many Western people who think it is somehow their humane duty to protect Islam and Muslims from any kind of criticism and blame. They are everywhere on social media, they think by knowing one person they have all the wisdom in the world, and they tell you to shut up when you say a word about Islam. I’m talking about those who want to talk against “Islamophobia” because they know a few seemingly friendly Muslims. They think: “Oh, I have this Muslim friend and he has been my friend for the last 5 years. He is so nice, so Muslims are good and Islam is peace.”

Well, don’t you have Christian friends? Don’t you have white people as friends? As teachers, colleagues or neighbors? They are everywhere around you and most of them are friendlier than people you find anywhere in the Islamic world. I’m saying this because so many of those who jump into the defense when Islam is criticized are also those who want to blame every single thing that happens in their country on white men and Christians or conservatives, because what drives them to defend Islam and Muslims is not social justice, it is their irrational rebellious attitude that they have against their own societies and norms.

You might have Muslim friends that are pretty nice. That’s no surprise, because especially if you are in America or in Canada and you research a bit, you will find out that North American Muslims are the least religious Muslims and consequently the most peaceful ones in the world, because moving to North America, especially to the US, is much harder than moving to Europe, and Muslims who actually choose to move to the US are usually more secular people who really want to move out of the Islamic world. [1] Not all, of course. If you live in Europe, Muslims are usually less peaceful but still better than in Pakistan. The reason is very clear. Muslims in the West are usually people who moved to the West for a better life, which also changed their perspectives, but your Muslim friend who is quite nice with you, doesn’t really mean anything in this discussion. Second generations and younger ones usually don’t learn much about their religion from their parents, and learn basic Western values when they grow up. They are usually only cultural Muslims. Those will also easily deny every negative fact that you mention about Islam, because they don’t know about Islam. They only know that they are supposed to be proud Muslims, that insulting and criticizing Islam is horrible, and they combine or confuse Islamic teachings with basic Western values. As a result they are still usually antisemitic, misogynistic and homophobic, but they also don’t believe that Islam teaches anything that would be too bad from a Western perspective. They don’t even want to look into it, because they are afraid of the truth.

Your Western Muslim friend doesn’t mean anything, and knowing them doesn’t make you an Islamic scholar. Your Muslim friend is an individual that is very far from knowing everything about Islam. Muslims are still disproportionately active in crimes, Muslims are still disproportionately hateful. I just mentioned how Muslims in the West are different from those in the Islamic world, but they are not as different as people think they are. If you grow up in a Muslim family (I did) you still grow up with massive hatred of Jews, of the West, of anyone who criticizes Islam, of “the kuffar” – the disbelievers. As a German-Turkish Ex-Muslim, I can tell you that Turkish Muslims still use the word gavur, which is an extremely derogatory term for non-Muslims, and they use it everywhere among each other. They don’t see that as a problem. They don’t consider it “hate speech”. That’s the norm. Just imagine that such a thing was the norm in America.

As said, Muslims in the West still quite different. The Islamic world is by far the worst when it comes to basic human rights, and it doesn’t seem to get better as quickly as Western civilization does. In the Islamic world there is no free speech. There is almost no Muslim majority country where it is legal to say anything bad about Islam, the country or the government. So, dear Western liberals who can freely say whatever they want about the president, the dominant religion or the country, can you imagine living in fear whenever you criticize any of the things mentioned? Can you imagine being fined, jailed, tortured or killed if you say anything about white people, Christians, the government or the country? Horrible for you, right? Well, that is the truth in the Muslim world, and the majority of Muslims approve of it. That’s why you don’t hear of Ex-Muslims speaking out about Islam while in the Islamic world. They have to move to the West to do that. Free speech doesn’t exist in the Muslim world, it exists in your Western world. That’s why you should appreciate it and protect it.

I made a series of videos where I shared numbers, all based on authentic polls, that show that scary numbers of Muslims think that women should always obey their husbands, homosexuals should be persecuted, blasphemy should be punished, apostates like myself should be killed or persecuted, that wife beating is a right, that religious judges should rule over families, that sharia law should be implemented, and so on. All of those numbers exist and are only seconds away if you have internet access.

For starters: There is a Pew poll that shows us terrifying facts about Muslims. Those numbers raise the number of “radicals” from a pathetic 1% to much higher than 50%. An example is that the majority of Muslims think that a woman should always obey her husband. I don’t see loud feminists speaking up against such a mindset. They speak out about other things, such as “mansplaining” or “manspreading” or the right to have hairy armpits. [2]

The problem is that Western, self-proclaimed humanists think that Islam is treated unfairly because people are ignorant about Islam, but it’s usually the opposite. People embrace Islam as a culture to take care of because they are ignorant. Many Western Islam apologists have no idea about the religion, and think that very easily accessible, horrible Quran verses and hadiths are just Islamophobic propaganda, because they don’t want to spend an hour to inform themselves about the religion. I see so many claiming that Islam is peaceful, but refusing to engage in an intellectual debate with you. They don’t care about facts, they care about their political agenda, and the media doesn’t really help educating people about the matter because the media doesn’t want to educate people. The mainstream media feeds on people, and they want to confirm the feelings and thoughts of those who praise, pay or follow them. They don’t care about the truth. That’s why Western mainstream media doesn’t make per capita calculations when it comes to Islamic terrorism or Muslim criminals, because the results would look pretty bad for Muslims. That would make the Western left feel uncomfortable, which results in the news agency losing support. But they talk immediately about per capita statistics when the subject is police shootings and the demographics of white and black victims, because that suits their agenda.

As an Ex-Muslim who grew up in a religious family and lived for more than a decade in the Islamic world, I can tell you that Muslims grow up with a deep hatred of Jews, Christians, Atheists, homosexuals, transgender people and equality, women’s rights activists, critics of Islam, apostates and so on. And I’m talking about Turkey, which is among the most “moderate” Muslim countries. They are not like you and probably never will be like you unless they leave Islam, which puts a target on their forehead and a killing order that is a fundamental Islamic rule: the killing of apostates. [3]

As said, I’m not saying that every single Muslim out there is a horrible human being and a terrorist. That would be absurd, but I have also probably never seen anyone making such a claim. People talk about how Muslims on average are disproportionately hateful and radical. That’s not racism. When they leave Islam, they usually become quite normal and open-minded people. We’re not talking about a race, something that people have to live with forever, we are talking about a religion, an ideology that gives people horrible ideas and views. Just take a normal Western person for example, who makes wrong decisions and becomes a Nazi. The same person realizes years later that Nazism is horribly wrong, regrets everything, speaks out against Nazism and starts to fight against Nazism. Just a human being with flaws right? Well, would you take millions of such people as neighbors while they are Nazis? No. Would you take them after they abandon Nazism? Probably yes. Now apply the same to Islam.
