What qualifies Islam as a religion? What is the criteria for deciding that an ideology is a religion? An illiterate Arab some 1500 years ago claimed he was commissioned by Allah as his emissary. What’s the proof for his claim? The Quran, the book that took him 20 years to put together and bill as the word-for-word utterances of the creator of the universe, Allah? It just so happened that he came up with a tremendously attractive proposition to the forever fighting and plundering Arabs: join me, war along with me, and your winning is guaranteed. You kill our adversary, you personally get to keep 80% of his possessions, including his women and children. You get killed, your destination is Allah’s glorious sensual paradise, where you will reside forever.
The offer caught like wildfire, and over time, engulfed the world.
There is absolutely no proof that Muhammad was indeed chosen and commissioned by the author of the universe for this mission called Islam. So Islam is a religion because it has a prophet? Why not Nazism? Oh, because Adolf Hitler did not claim so? What about Marx and Engels, or Mao? No, they did not claim to be emissaries of a supernatural being.
It is true that most religions are intended to attenuate human fears. They are based on natural fears, many of which are irrational…but natural nonetheless. For example, many pagan religious practices were focused on the seasonal cycles related to the harvest. Why? Because if the harvest was poor, their entire civilization could perish, or be weakened to the point where a neighboring tribe would kill them off.
While they misunderstood the scientific basis for weather, they created natural (yet irrational) religious beliefs about weather and harvest. In this sense, religions were psychologically useful and inevitable in addressing natural conditions. But some religions establish for themselves fears of things which do not exist…which the religion itself invented in order to create and perpetuate fear, and then artificially addressed it in order to establish a political regime.
The political nature of Islam transcends personal spiritualism and becomes a cult of oppression. This is fraud. This is evil. This is Islam.
Islam essentially invents the idea that Christians, Jews, and pagans are abominations and offensive to Allah, and that their very existence represents an attack upon the self-defined Islamic right to reign over the world. Allah thus enlists Muslim believers to eradicate by force those who offend him, and by disbelieving, prevent his rule.
True Muslim believers therefore become the enforcers, hit men and mercenaries for their god, in order to establish a global Caliphate for their parasitic clergy. Their targets are artificially constructed adversaries. Believers are instructed to fear the “great Satan,” and are told that if they do not live up to Allah’s calls to Jihad, they are themselves offensive to Allah and to their families. It’s a “you’re either for me or against me” strategy. Contrast this with say, Christian fears. Christians, too, fear offending God, because they believe that God will judge their lives when their bodies die. So their fears are reduced by atoning in personal alignment with the teachings of the Bible.
So as a political religion, Islam creates artificial fear of alien groups, and then eliminates the fear through war and coercion. Islam pleases Allah with brutality and Jihad. Islam seeks to instill a political regime to enforce its provisions. When such a political doctrine declares that “resistance is futile,” it is referring to corporeal enforcement by people. Personal religions acknowledge natural fears, and then use light, wisdom, and the capacity for human nobility to eliminate them through a positive, spiritual exercise.
Islam can work by brute force and by the lengths to which the believers will go to perpetuate it. Its theology and practices make it inherently evil and dangerous to all of mankind. It has already spread throughout the world. How do you eradicate it? You can’t…in fact, they will nuke us first, I am sure of that.
Warning to free men and women: remain a spectator at your own peril. It is imperative that you take a stand and do your part at denouncing the fraud of Islam, and do all you can to prevent the Islamic fire from devouring our civilized democratic system.
