To understand Islam, you have to accept certain facts about this religion. The impact of Islam on the daily life of Muslims is far greater than that found in the Western Culture since the Middle Ages.
Muslims advance a definition that Islam is a shinning beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance, and racism.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
Islam has no fundamental concept of Inalienable Rights as mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Islam does not permit the individual to enjoy the freedoms of action and association characteristic of the Democracy that so many Western cultures currently enjoy today.
Islam is a religion in name only because of a reference to “Allah” as their Deity. A well known fact is that Islam is a totalitarian ideology that rejects Democracy, personal freedom, and every other religion. The ideals of anti-Semitism and anti-Western Culture run rampant throughout Islam. The Laws of Man are meaningless and have absolutely no relevance in Muslim culture because they are without any direct reference to the Koran or Shariah Law and therefore they have no place in Muslim life.
Islamic law/Shariah Law is completely incompatible with Freedom, Democracy, and Liberty, or any other government where the people have an actual voice in government or the will of the people matters.
For example, in Saudi Arabia, a country ruled by Islamic law, sorcery, witchcraft, and blasphemy are all crimes punishable by death… they behead people convicted of these “crimes” in the public square. This is what Islamic law advocates. Saudi Arabia holds to Shariah Law and has a Religious Police to enforce all the aspects of Shariah Law. Christian Bibles are destroyed by the thousands like book burnings in Nazi Germany. This is not a religion of tolerance as so many Muslims claim.
“True Islam permits neither elections nor democracy.”
— Sufi Mohammed, Muslim Cleric
THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL CONTRADICTION BETWEEN BEING A DEVOUT MUSLIM AND RESPECTING THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND ITS GUARANTEES OF VARIOUS FREEDOMS!
Saudi Arabia infuses Islam in all aspects of daily life. The practice of any other religion is against the law and there is an actual Religious Police to enforce this law. This ends any discussion concerning Islam’s tolerance of other religions. All laws come from Shariah Law and with its foundation in the Koran, it is the law.
Muslims are convinced that this is the way all life should be lived. The belief is, “If Shariah Law is good for now, then it is good for all times,” and they firmly believe that concept because Shariah Law comes directly from the Koran, which they believe is the direct word of Allah.
Islam, as practiced by the “Radical” fundamentalists that lead the religion, does not encourage the pursuit of knowledge outside of itself as can be seen by their attitude toward other cultures especially Western Culture. This is the reason Islam is often referred to as “the religion which has produced nothing but religion”.
Essentially, anything that is not Islamic is not encouraged and in many instances, it is outright forbidden. Ideals Americans take for granted such as Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of the Press have absolutely no meaning or place within Islamic culture.
Islam with Shariah Law constitutes a totalitarian means of ruling society at EVERY level, including ritual worship, transactions and contracts, morals and matters, beliefs and punishments, the servitude of women, etc, etc, etc…
The words “peace” and “tolerance” are not defined in Islam as it is defined in the West.
It does not mean ceasefire or compromise. That is a temporary illusion that people of the western culture are encouraged and fooled into believing.
The Prophet Muhammad defined the state of peace and tolerance as a moment when the entire world submits to Allah and embraces Islam and that is the way that Islam defines “peace” and “tolerance”.
In Islam, the way to achieve peace is through settlement, jihad, and the institution of the Sharia (Islamic law)… not compromise… not tolerance of other religions… not allowing non-Muslims to exist and live their lives as they wish.
And before the State of Universal Islamization, “It is the duty of every Muslim male to wage war against Infidels” – not just by preaching and persuading, but by any means necessary and as the world has seen, by extreme violence whenever possible. It is one of the core beliefs of Islam.
The idea that Islam has any real degree of tolerance as defined in the Western World is not only fallacious but it is dangerous, especially to non-Muslims.
“If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir (leader) and give allegiance to him… Take my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”
— Siraj Wahaj, a black convert to Islam and the recipient of some of the American Muslim community’s highest honors, had the privilege of becoming the first Muslim to deliver the daily prayer in the U.S. House of Representatives
Three Things You (Probably) Don’t Know About Islam
In Islamic states, where there is no formally recognized separation between religion and law, mosque and state, Shariah Law is a cornerstone and is often implemented as the final and ultimate formulation of the law of God, not to be revised or reformulated by mere mortal and fallible human beings.
Freedom does not exist in Islam. Only Islam exists in Islam. Ideally, Islam and its teachings would run the State and all laws would be based on criteria from the Koran.
“Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam doesn’t look for a nation to be in better condition than another nation. Islam doesn’t care about the land or who own the land. The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power in this world that tries to get in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.”
— Mawlana Abul Ala Mawdudi, founder of Pakistan’s Fundamentalist Movement
Their goal is to make Islam a Worldwide State sanctioned religion led by religious leaders having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all aspects of life based on Islamic teachings, and emphasizing Islam to the detriment of any and all other religions and secular beliefs.
For people that have grown up with Freedom and Liberty, this is often a hard realization to comprehend. Islam as a religion requires mandatory implementation and participation as a way of life and is the goal of all Muslims.
For Muslims, Islam is the only true religion. All other religions are false and an insult to Allah, Islam, “the prophet”Muhammad, and all Muslims. Under Islamic law, infidel religions and beliefs will not be tolerated.
With Islam, there is no Freedom of Religion, there is no Individual Freedom; there is only Islam and the Islamic way of life.
“He who fights that Islam should be superior fights in Allah’s cause.”
— Muhammad, Prophet of Islam
“By their acts, we shall know them and so we know them.”

Once you understand this concept, it is easy to comprehend what Islam really is. As a religion, Islam is run by Radical Muslims. They are the loudest and most vocal on Islam. The Radical Muslims are the true Muslims that dictate and control Islam. They are the ones that fight to get what they want based on Islamic Law.
The term “Radical Islam” is often used when describing Islam. It is a deceptive term in that it assumes there is a more moderate and peaceful version of Islam… there is not!
Islam is a Radical ideology on its own as can be seen in its doctrine. There is no need to use the word “Radical” as though there was a “Non-Radical” form of Islam.
There is only one Islam and it is at war with the rest of world for planetary control and domination. It is not just a war with an ideology, but with a people, including their elderly, their women, and their children. There is no war with a separate entity of Islam called “Radical Islam”... THE WAR IS WITH ALL OF ISLAM.
Whether you like it or not, whether you agree with it or not, whether you believe it or not, Islamic Terrorists are the cause for almost all of the world’s terrorist attacks. There are always detractors that will advance the notion that these “Islamic Terrorists” are not true Muslims, but such is not the case. These terrorists are dedicated Muslims and serious students of Islam and its teachings.
They understand what Islam is, what it means to be a defender of Allah and of Islam, and what is required to be a good Muslim. Remember, Muslims believe that Islam is the only true religion, superior to all other religions and beliefs.
They also believe there are no innocent people other than Muslims therefore killing non-Innocents is acceptable to Allah as some legitimate form of retribution as they believe they are on a mission with orders directly from Allah as written in the Koran to destroy anything they see as a threat or an insult to Islam and Allah. Unbelievers are not worthy of living; they deserve to die.
Examine a somewhat hidden concept of Islam. To advance the cause of Islam is to implement the complete domination of Islam over all other religions with the goal being the eventual elimination of other religions.
When a Muslim dies while attempting to advance the cause of Islam, including by warfare and killing, it is not considered suicide, but a glorious act worthy of a secured place in Paradise. Islam is unique among major world religions in this concept. The Koran teaches salvation through fighting and killing non-Muslims.
We see this reality whenever a suicide bomber strikes, Muslims are quick to heave praise on the terrorist and on the family of the suicide bomber. There is nothing but contempt given to the victims.
There is one historical precedent rarely discussed about Islam that helps to explain the terrorist mentality commonly associated with Islam. The bloody legacy of Muhammad is a constant challenge for anyone living within the borders of Islamic belief.
The violence that Muslim armies would level on people across North Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia as far as India is a tribute to a founder who condoned slavery, rape, murder and forced conversion in the cause of spreading the rule of his religion.
This concept established by Muhammad as a fundamental tool to spread Islam is certainly the basis for terror campaigns against Western infidels and the general apathy that Muslims around the world have to the violence against non-Muslims.
There are a lot of myths about Islam as to whether it is a Religion of Peace and Tolerance and what that actually means. The following link addresses ten of those myths.
Why We Fear Islam,
Why We Should Fear Islam
As Americans and Europeans who were brought up in a prodominately Judeo-Christian society, when we look at others, it is common to see other people that worship other religions as just peaceful people and we want to believe they only want to live in peace as we do.
They live their day to day lives much like us… going to work, coming home, spending the weekends doing chores that could not be done during the week. We see pretty much all people as equal.
That is not the way Muslims see us. Make no mistake, non-Muslims are clearly seen as Kafirs… second class citizens that should be subjugated under the control of Islam.
After all, Islam means “Submission” and that is exactly what the religion means to do to non-Muslims. And until we have the courage to understand and know the real history of Islam and how Muslims have treated non-Muslims, we are going to continue to die by the edge of the Islamic sword.
Very few Americans actually know anything about how Islam has changed the world and how many hundreds of millions of non-Muslims have suffered and died under the tyrany of Islam. The following video will explain this history and the extremely violent nature of Islam. Just remember, Islam is the only religion that proudly makes videos of the beheading non-Muslims.
Under Islamic Law, There Are Guidelines For Beating Your Wife
For those Liberals that love to make excuses for Muslims and blame the Jews, America, or anyone else they like to blame for Islamic hatred, please enjoy this explanation of the guidelines for beating your wife entitled “How To Beat Your Wife”.
Believe it or not, there is actually a specific etiquette for a man to beat his wife. In Islam, a woman must be honored by a good beating for her own good. This is necessary in order to instill disipline.
Just see what Islam has to say on the subject in this very enlightening video broadcasted on MEMRI-TV.
If you are Pro-Islam, then you, by definition understand the necessity for beating your wife when she does not perform as she should. This makes training your new 9-12 year-old bride to service her new husband when he wants to be serviced, as is the custom in Islam, very easy.
As an Islamic man, if your wife ever refuses to have sex when you want, you are free to beat her until she will never entertain the thought of refusing to have sex with you again.
For you Liberal women, expecially those associated with CodePINK, reading this article, this observation might be eye-opening if you really want to see the truth.
Islam And Muslims Are Responsible
For The African Slave Trade
What most people do not realize is that the slave trade that brought Africans from Africa to North and South America and throughout parts of Europe was due to the tireless efforts of Muslims and in accordance with Islamic Law.
Just another set of facts illustrating the truth about Islam.
