Christian man sentenced to life for blasphemy in Pakistan


images(Thanks to Indian Express) A Christian man in Pakistan’s Punjab province has been sentenced to life imprisonment for sending blasphemous mobile phone text messages to some Muslim clerics.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Mian Shahzad Raza of Toba Tek Singh district slapped the sentence and a Rs 2 lakh fine on Sajjad Masih yesterday.

Masih, a resident of Pak pattan district, was arrested in December 2011 for allegedly sending blasphemous mobile phone messages to Muslim clerics of Gojra in Toba Tek Singh, some 200 kilometres from Lahore.

The judge heard the case in the district jail and handed down the sentence to Masih after several ulemas (clerics) of Gojra testified against him.

A forensic record of the accused’s mobile phone messages was also presented in the court.

The court was informed that Masih was engaged to his relative Ruma Masih of Gojra Christian Colony but she contracted marriage with a Christian man living in the UK.

Masih had with him a mobile phone SIM belonging to Ruma and he sent blasphemous messages to the clerics from it.

Police said Masih wanted to land Ruma in trouble to teach her a lesson for her ‘betrayal’.

The police initially registered a case against Masih under Section 25-B of the Telegraph Act but then added the controversial blasphemy law to the FIR on the demand of the clerics.

Muslims and clerics of Gojra also pressured police to try Ruma under the blasphemy law.

The police finally succumbed to their pressure and registered a case against her under the law.

On the request of police, the federal interior ministry sought a red corner notice from Interpol for the arrest of Ruma in the UK but she is yet to be traced.

Pakistani police have declared her a ‘proclaimed offender’ or fugitive.

  1. All the enemies of Islam! Come and debate with me. This is my Id. I will give you all the answers. “m_tauqeer@ymail.com”. You do not have basic knowledge of Islam. First, improve your own religion which is full of rapes.

  2. I bear witness that Islam IS The Religion of Rape

    Muhammad Would Never Approve of Rape?

    It is against Islam to rape Muslim women, but Muhammad actually encouraged the rape of others captured in battle. This hadith provides the context for the Qur’anic verse (4:24):
    The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives.
    Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah were reluctant to have sexual intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Sura 4:24)
    “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” (Abu Dawud 2150, also Muslim 3433)
    Actually, as the hadith indicates, it wasn’t Muhammad, but “Allah the Exalted” who told the men to rape the women in front of their husbands – which is all the more reason not to think of Islam as being the same as other religion.
    Note also that the husbands of these unfortunate victims were obviously alive after battle. This is important because it flatly contradicts those apologists who like to argue that the women Muhammad enslaved were widowed and thus unable to fend for themselves. (Even if the apologists were right, what sort of a moral code is it that forces a widow to choose between being raped and starving?)
    There are several other episodes in which Muhammad is offered the clear opportunity to disavow raping women – yet he instead offers advice on how to proceed. In one case, his men were reluctant to devalue their new slaves for later resale by getting them pregnant. Muhammad was asked about coitus interruptus in particular:
    “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.” (Bukhari 34:432)
    As indicated, the prophet of Islam did not mind his men raping the women, provided they ejaculated within the bodies of their victims.
    As one might imagine, Muhammad’s obvious approval of raping women captured in battle and his own personal participation as recorded in many places is of intense inconvenience to the Muslim apologists of our time. For this reason, some of them attempt to explain away these many episodes and Qur’anic references to sex with captives by pretending that these are cases in which women have fled bad marriages and sought refuge with the Muslims. Some apologists even refer to them as “wives,” even though the Qur’an makes a clear distinction between “those whom thy right hand possesses” and true wives (see Sura 33:50).
    Beyond the desperation of the 21st century apologist however, there is absolutely nothing in the historical text that supports this rosy revision of Muslim history. The women of the Banu Mustaliq were sold into slavery following their rape:
    “We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid-conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter” (Sahih Muslim 3371)
    In fact, female slaves were traded like any other simple commodity by Muhammad and his bad of devoted followers:
    “Then the apostle sent Sa-d b. Zayd al-Ansari, brother of Abdu’l-Ashal with some of the captive women of Banu Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham/Hisham 693)
    Is it Islamic to sell one’s wife for horses? Clearly these were not wives!
    More importantly, by definition a “captured” woman is not one who is fleeing her husband. She is fleeing her captor (ie. the Muslim slave raider). This hadith describes a typical raid, in which the women and children are captured as they are attempting to flee the attacking Muslims:
    “…and then we attacked from all sides and reached their watering-place where a battle was fought. Some of the enemies were killed and some were taken prisoners. I saw a group of persons that consisted of women and children [escaping in the distance]. I was afraid lest they should reach the mountain before me, so I shot an arrow between them and the mountain. When they saw the arrow, they stopped. So I brought them, driving them along” (Sahin Muslim 4345)
    The Muslim narrator (who happens to be Muhammad’s adopted son) sees the women trying to escape (following the massacre of their men) and cuts off their route by shooting an arrow into their path. These aren’t women trying to seek refuge with the Muslims. They are trying to avoid capture by the Muslims.
    The same hadith goes on to recount that Muhammad personally demanded one of the captured women for his own use:
    I drove them along until I brought them to Abu Bakr who bestowed that girl upon me as a prize. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: “Give me that girl.” (Sahih Muslim 4345)

    The prophet of Islam and his companions used war to collect women for personal sexual use and for trading. Unless she was arbitrarily declared as someone’s wife, the woman became a sex slave. In no case was her fate tied to anything that she had personally done, nor was she given a choice about her future.

    The Religion of Rape
    From the Islamic scriptures I will start with:
    Koran verse 004.024

    YUSUFALI: Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.
    The meaning of what “right hands possess” is explained in Islamic Law, the Koran, and the ahadith.
    “The Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Scared Law”
    This book has the stamp of approval of Al Azhar, the highest learning Islamic school in the world.
    Justice Chapter: Jihad

    THE RULES OF WARFARE
    o9.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.
    This is backed up by other Koran verses.
    033.050
    YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee;and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
    008.069
    YUSUFALI: But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good: but fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
    While Islam does not consider this rape, it sure sounds like kidnapping, slavery, and rape to me.
    The ahadith even go into more detail on how Mohammad approved of him, and his merry men raping women.
    Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:
    Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:
    I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, “We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and
    we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, ‘How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among us?” We asked (him) about it and he said, ‘It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”
    By Mohammad’s words we can see that he did not care that his men raped the women, nor did he care if the women were impregnated by their rapist. What a guy.
    After raiding a town and defeating the “enemy”, Mohammad picked a female captive of his own.
    Volume 3, Book 34, Number 437:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    The Prophet came to Khaibar and when Allah made him victorious and he conquered the town by breaking the enemy’s defense, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtab was mentioned to him and her husband had been killed while she was a bride. Allah’s Apostle selected her for himself and he set out in her company till he reached Sadd-ar-Rawha’ where her menses were over and he married her. Then Hais (a kind of meal) was prepared and served on a small leather sheet (used for serving meals). Allah’s Apostle then said to me, “Inform those who are around you (about the wedding banquet).” So that was the marriage banquet given by Allah’s Apostle for (his marriage with) Safiya. After that we proceeded to Medina and I saw that Allah’s Apostle was covering her with a cloak while she was behind him. Then he would sit beside his camel and let Safiya put her feet on his knees to ride (the camel).
    Are we really supposed to believe that Safiya willingly married Mohammad, after him and his army killed her husband? Only a blind following Muslim would believe that.
    Volume 5, Book 59, Number 513:
    Narrated ‘Abdul ‘Aziz bin Suhaib:
    Anas bin Malik said, “The Prophet took Safiya as a captive. He manumitted her and married her.” Thabit asked Anas, “What did he give her as Mahr (i.e. marriage gift)?” Anas replied. “Her Mahr was herself, for he manumitted her.”
    Here we read of the official rape, of what was obviously a petrified girl. (She was a Jewish girl that was 17 at the time.)
    Volume 5, Book 59, Number 523:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    The Prophet stayed with Safiya bint Huyai for three days on the way of Khaibar where he consummated his marriage with her. Safiya was amongst those who were ordered to use a veil.

    Kuwaiti Activist: “I Hope that Kuwait Will Enact a Law for…Sex Slaves”

    Translated from the original Arabic by Al Mutarjim

    This video (transcript below) was translated from a video posted on YouTube on May 25, 2011, by a female Kuwaiti activist and former candidate for Kuwaiti parliament, Salwa al-Mutairi, in which she called for a revival of the Islamic law for sex-slaves.
    Later she was interviewed about this by the Kuwaiti paper al-Siyasa; the translation of a story on that interview from al-Arabiya is also included below the transcript from the video.

    For more on this story, you can also read the articles posted by Raymond Ibrahim and Nonie Darwish a couple of weeks ago (special thanks to Nonie Darwish as well for sending this in and helping out with the translation).

    Peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you. My name is Salwa al-Mutairi. I received a message that was a little strange. A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth. The topic that he brought up is an old topic. I have been working on it for two years now.

    I was working with this man, a young man, who (liked) women a lot. I was sympathetic to his situation, and also dedicated to my work. I was given the opportunity to visit Mecca, and when I did so, I brought up (this man’s) situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?”
    The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”
    “Is this forbidden by Islam?,” I asked.
    “Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not–she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”

    Of course, I also asked religious experts in Kuwait (about this issue), and they told me about the problem with the passionate man, or even the man who is committed to his religion. For every good man in our religion, the only solution for him–when forbidden women come around, if he’s tempted to sin, then the solution to this issue is for him to purchase sex slaves. I hope that Kuwait will enact the law for this category, this category of people–the sex slaves.

    I have also seen a situation in Kuwait, where a woman was abandoned by her family and so forth. She was given a home in Kuwait, where she cooked, and took care of the house, and helped out, and so forth. She was very much in a situation where she was like a slave. It is better to follow the shari’a like this than to go about doing that which is forbidden. Thankfully this house took her in, because her family abandoned her, and failed to shelter her.

    I hope that a law will be enacted for this category, and they will open the door for this, just as they have opened the door for servants (to come into the country). They should open the door for sex slaves, by enacting a sound law, so that our children don’t waste away in the abyss of adultery and moral depravity. Allah-willing, this will work out. I believe, look, the (sex slaves could come from) a country like Chechnya, where there is a war between an (Islamic) state and another state. Certainly there are prisoners. These prisoners could be purchased. They could be purchased and sold to the merchants in Kuwait. This is better than (the merchants) committing that which is forbidden. There is nothing wrong with this.

    Harun al-Rashid had many more sex slaves than this. When he died he had 2,000 sex slaves. But he only had one wife. This was not forbidden. Our shari’a permits such a thing as this. Praise be to Allah, here in Kuwait there are many merchants who are committed (to Islam). I hope the best for Kuwait, Allah-willing.
    Article translated from al-Arabiya, June 4, 2011:

    A female activist and former candidate for the Kuwaiti People’s Assembly, Salwa al-Mutairi, called for “the enactment of a law for sex-slaves, to protect men from corruption, and to prevent children from falling into the abyss of adultery.”

    Al-Mutairi said to the Kuwaiti journal “al-Siyasa, on Saturday, 4 June 2011, that “Many Kuwaitis resort to becoming (too) close with women, and forgetting their religion, and taking mistresses for themselves without marrying them. This leads to sin, the spread of disease, and children being born out of wedlock. This issue needs to be dealt with in a way that does not contradict the religion (of Islam), and in which men’s desires are provided for. This is something which cannot be accomplished except by resurrecting the system of sex slaves, and putting legal controls on its use.”

    She added that, “The female sex-slaves existed for the policy, because the religion (of Islam) permitted their possession, on condition that they were prisoners from raids carried out by Islamic countries against non-Muslim countries.” She suggested that the sex slaves be taken from Russian prisoners held in Chechnya, or from Russia or other countries.

    According to the former candidate, the law should be put in place quickly to establish an organization to bring the sex slaves and take ownership of them, in order to preserve the rights of both parties. Wherefore, she suggests that, “The one who desires to own the sex slave, should pay a price of 2,500 dinars. He should pay to the offices which bring the sex slaves, which will quickly establish offices which employ workers, 500 dinars. Two thousand dinars would be placed in an account for the sex slave, which she would not be able to access until 5 years after entering the care of her owner.”

    Al-Mutairi also proposes that, “A monthly salary be set at 50 dinars, to be withdrawn monthly from the account of the sex slave’s owner. Knowing that any citizen can own whatever sex slave he wants, this is done aiming to get rid of any motive for jealousy between (the sex slaves). It also would not be permitted to bring any sex slave under the age of 15, or over the age of 25. In the proposed law, these sex slaves would be termed “girlfriends of the house.” They should be treated with justice, and their rights to salary, care, and to pursue education, if they desire, should be maintained.”

    Al-Mutairi recorded her position on sex slaves in a video which was broadcast on the internet. To support the truth of her position, she cited the fact that Harun al-Rashid was married to one woman but had 2,000 sex slaves.

    Egyptian Shaykh:
    Jihad Is Solution to Muslims’ Financial Problems

    Translated from the original Arabic by Al Mutarjim

    In this short audio file, prominent Egyptian Shaykh Abi-Ishaq al-Huwayni explains that Muslims’ financial difficulties are due to the fact that they have abandoned jihad.
    The solution? Go on jihadist raids a few times a year, and bring back prisoners, including women and children, which can be sold in the market “like groceries” to bring in extra income when times are tough.
    The subtitled video is below, and the transcript follows that (thanks to Nonie Darwish for sending this one in):
    We are in the era of jihad. The era of jihad has come over us, and jihad in the path of Allah is a pleasure. It is a real pleasure. The companions (of the Prophet) used to compete to (perform jihad). The poverty that we’re in—is it not due to our abandonment of jihad? But if we could conduct one, two, or three jihadist operations every year, many people throughout the earth would become Muslims. And whoever rejected this da’wa, or stood in our way, we would fight against him and take him prisoner, and confiscate his wealth, his children, and his women—all of this means money. Every mujahid who returned from jihad, his pockets would be full. He would return with 3 or 4 slaves, 3 or 4 women, and 3 or 4 children. Multiply each head by 300 dirhams, or 300 dinar, and you have a good amount of profit. If he were to go to the West and work on a commercial deal, he would not make that much money. Whenever things became difficult (financially), he could take the head (i.e. the prisoner) and sell it, and ease his (financial) crisis. He would sell it like groceries. Of those who are–(cuts off)

    Shaykh al-Huwayni:
    “When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her”
    Translated from the original Arabic by Al Mutarjim

    After Egyptian Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni’s controversial comments about jihad and slavery (see above) were published on YouTube, Facebook, and also in Egyptian press, he was given the opportunity to respond in a telephone interview aired on the Islamic satellite television station al-Hikma on May 22, 2011. In his approximately 20-minute response, he contended that his words in that clip were taken out of context–he was talking within the larger topic of offensive jihad. In this interview he explained the meaning of offensive jihad, and established through sources in the Qur’an and sayings of Muhammad that both offensive jihad and the taking of spoils of war, namely slaves and “sex-slaves,” are legitimate under Islam.

    The 20-minute interview has been condensed down to about 8 and a half minutes; the subtitled video is below, and the transcript follows:
    […] It is clear that offensive jihad, which I was talking about in that interview, that its purpose is to call people to Islam, and it is not permissible for anyone to hide the divine guidance from the people, under any name. They rejected Islam and the jizya, that’s it. The Prophet (PBUH) said:

    “If they refuse, then seek Allah’s aid and fight them.” If fighting occurs, there is going to be a winner and a loser. If the army of the Muslims is victorious, it will take spoils. Taking spoils is a fixed ruling in the Qur’an. Allah permitted it at the day of the Battle of Badr, as it is (recorded) in Surat al-Anfal.

    Allah Almighty said: “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah,- and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer,- if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things” [Qur’an 8:41].

    This (position) on spoils is clear. There is also the saying in the two Sahihs [Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim] from Abi-Hurayra, the first of which is, “One among the prophets (PBUH) raided…” In the other hadith from Yush’a bin Nun, the Prophet (PBUH) said, “When Allah saw our weakness, he made it permissible for us,” meaning spoils. The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Spoils were not permitted for any masters besides you.” Allah Almighty forbade (the taking of) spoils for all nations before us. He permitted it on the day of the Battle of Badr, as agreed to by all scholars. Not a single Muslim scholar has a problem with this.

    ‘Spoils’ refers to what? It refers to people and wealth. The people are those who are taken prisoner. I want to say that it is not at all permissible to take prisoners from among Muslims, even if they are heretics, because the rule for Muslims is that they are free, and not prisoners. Jihad, as I stated in the beginning, is between Muslims and non-Muslims, from among the infidels. But if two Muslims fought each other, like from Iraq and Iran for example; if Iraq invaded Iran to occupy it, it would not be permissible for an Iraqi man to take a Shi’ite woman captive, because she is Muslim, even though she’s a heretic. Likewise if Iran invaded Iraq, it would not be permissible for one of their men to take a Muslim woman captive, because she is free.

    Therefore jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. That between Muslims and Muslims is called oppression, or fighting: “If two parties among the believers fall into a quarrel…” [Qur’an 49:9]. They are called ‘believers,’ and this name is not taken from them, even though they are fighting. “If one of them transgresses beyond bounds against the other, then fight ye (all) against the one that transgresses…” Here they are called transgressors, but the name of believers is still not taken away from them. In the verse directly following this one, Allah Almighty says: “The believers are but a single brotherhood…” They were brothers, even though a party of them transgressed against the other, and some of them fought each other. But the name of believers was not taken from them.
    Do you understand what I’m saying? Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars–there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

    When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Qur’an 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point–there is no disagreement from any of them.
    These are called slaves. The Prophet (PBUH) talked about them in the hadith narrated by al-Bukhari in his Book of Jihad:

    “Allah is delighted at a people who enter the Garden in chains.” Also as narrated by Abu-Dawud: “They are led to the Garden in chains.” Naturally, many people might not understand someone being jerked along in chains in order to enter the Garden. This is because all people, even the worst of the unbelievers, say the garden is for them and no others. They run to the Garden without anybody pulling them in chains.
    The meaning of the hadith is this: these slaves were in a religion other than Islam. However, when they were conquered, and defeated, and taken prisoner, they came to live in the land of Islam. Then when they witnessed the justice, compassion, and mercy of Islam, they became Muslims. These did not convert to Islam except in the chains of war. If they had not been chained, bound, and had their freedom taken from them, they would not have converted to Islam. Therefore this hadith is referring to these slaves.
    I am very shocked and surprised at those who say that we permit slavery. We don’t call people to become slaves. In fact, there are vows to free the necks (i.e. slaves). The same Islam which permits us to take slaves, also urges us to free their necks.
    […]
    I am very shocked, for example, by a country like the United States or others like it which occupies the inhabitants of the earth. It doesn’t enslave individuals, but rather it enslaves entire countries. What is being done in Afghanistan? What is being done in Iraq? What is being done with regards to dividing up Sudan? Those who are in Chechnya, or Eritrea, or any Muslim country are being burned, and taken and thrown in prisons and in Guantanamo and so forth. They say that this is a war against terrorism. This action is the same as slavery, but it is injustice and aggression. But Islam in the case of Chosroes was not like that.

    I have entered into the well-known conditions and restrictions (on offensive jihad), of which I mentioned only a few, because it is a long topic. I know that I am in an interview, and perhaps I have carried on too long for your guests. But I will close Allah-willing, and I won’t go on more than a couple of minutes. I say that this is requisite with the justice, mercy, and care of Islam for the slaves. Yet they still come and blame us for this supposed blemish, while they are guilty of the same thing many times over. They are tyrants and oppressors who attack the lands of the Muslims especially, more than they do any others. Now when I say spoils, it does not refer only to money, but it also means slaves.

    When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her. I choose the man I like, one with strong muscles, or if I want a boy to work in the house, and so forth. I choose one, and pay him a wage. I employ him in a variety of different tasks, and then I sell him afterwards. Now, the country that I entered and took captive its men and women–does it not also have money, gold, and silver? Is that not money? When I say that jihad–offensive jihad–with the well-known conditions that I already mentioned from the hadith of the Prophet (PBUH), from the hadith of Burayda in Sahih Muslim, the coffers of the Muslims were full. Would someone who is pious and intelligent–would he say that this is a type of poverty? Or that it is a type of wealth? No–this will fill the coffers of the Muslims with riches and wealth, but as we said, with the recognized conditions. […]

    MUSLIMS DEMANDS

    Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The
    Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

    Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a
    complete, total, 100% system of life.

    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military
    components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other
    components.

    Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to
    agitate for their religious privileges.

    When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree
    to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other
    components tend to creep in as well.

    Here’s how it works:

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given
    country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving
    minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

    United States — Muslim 0.6%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1.8%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and
    disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among
    street gangs.
    This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their
    percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the
    introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing
    food preparation jobs for
    Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal
    on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is
    occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to
    rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The
    ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase
    lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we
    are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and
    results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to
    Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily,
    particularly in Muslim sections, in:
    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia
    formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and
    Jewish synagogues, such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks,
    and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all
    other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic
    cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax
    placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run
    ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the
    infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in
    some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of
    Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the
    Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most
    radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by
    killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

    ‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me
    against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against
    my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the
    world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘TheAdapted from Dr.
    Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam Haj’

    It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100%
    Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in
    ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by
    Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are
    no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In
    such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The
    children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with
    an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of
    certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the
    national average would indicate.

    Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But
    their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists,
    Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s
    population by the end of this century.

    Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The
    Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

    Islam :Do not Question the Religion
    Sure we see some Muslims say that they are against “terrorism”, which they never really define. But have you ever seen many Muslims actually condemn the Islamic scriptures, or Mohammad? I have not, and the reason is that the Islamic scriptures warn them not to.
    The Koran warns Muslims not to ask too many questions.
    005.101
    YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if ye ask about things when the Qur’an is being revealed, they will be made plain to you, Allah will forgive those: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Forbearing.
    If Muslims do ask too many questions, the Koran states that they have lost their faith.
    005.102
    YUSUFALI: Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith.
    Now I will take this a step further, to lose one’s faith is to apostate from Islam, and under Islamic Law this can be a death sentence. The “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Scared Law”, teaches us that even denying a Koran verse is to apostate from Islam, and apostates should be killed.
    Justice: Apostasy from Islam
    ACTS THAT ENTAIL LEAVING ISLAM
    (7) to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it:
    Justice: Apostasy from Islam
    o8.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
    o8.4 There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die)
    For the record, “The Reliance of the Traveller”, has the stamp of approval from Al Azhar, the highest Islamic learning school in the world.
    Now I will point out in the ahadith were it states not to question the religion, and questioning overall is not encouraged.
    From the Bukhari hadith, we can see that Mohammad did not like to be questioned.
    Volume 1, Book 3, Number 92:
    Narrated Abu Musa:
    The Prophet was asked about things which he did not like, but when the questioners insisted, the Prophet got angry. He then said to the people, “Ask me anything you like.” A man asked, “Who is my father?” The Prophet replied, “Your father is Hudhafa.” Then another man got up and said, “Who is my father, O Allah’s Apostle ?” He replied, “Your father is Salim, Maula (the freed slave) of Shaiba.” So when ‘Umar saw that (the anger) on the face of the Prophet he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We repent to Allah (Our offending you).”
    From Bukhari volume 2, we see the same pattern.
    Volume 2, Book 24, Number 555:
    Narrated Ash-sha’bi:
    The clerk of Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba narrated, “Muawiya wrote to Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba: Write to me something which you have heard from the Prophet (p.b.u.h) .” So Al-Mughira wrote: I heard the Prophet saying, “Allah has hated for you three things:
    1. Vain talks, (useless talk) that you talk too much or about others.
    2. Wasting of wealth (by extravagance)
    3. And asking too many questions (in disputed religious matters) or asking others for something (except in great need). (See Hadith No. 591, Vol. Ill)
    Here is volume 3 verse 591.
    From the Bukhari hadith 3:591
    Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba:
    The Prophet said, “Allah has forbidden for you, (1) to be undutiful to your mothers, (2) to bury your daughters alive, (3) to not to pay the rights of the others (e.g. charity, etc.) and (4) to beg of men (begging). And Allah has hated for you (1) vain, useless talk, or that you talk too much about others, (2) to ask too many questions, (in disputed religious matters)and (3) to waste the wealth (by extravagance).
    Finally the Koran states that Mohammad’s actions are to be followed for all time.
    033.021
    YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.
    If anyone is waiting for the Islamic world to tear apart the Islamic scriptures, and condemn the actions of Mohammad, they are only fooling themselves. “Moderate” Islam is not coming to the rescue, and it will be our way of life or theirs. Take a side, the freedom of our families future generations is depending on us.
    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
    “Those who know nothing about Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those people are witless. Islam says: ‘Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!’ Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by the infidel? Islam says: ‘Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter them.’ Islam says: ‘Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword.’ The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”
    What Islam REALLY Says About Jesus and His Return…
    I frequently have conversations with Islamic apologists who say that their Muslim “friends” have the utmost respect for Jesus. Well, perhaps they do, but it is not in the same vein as Christians’ respect for their Saviour! From the viewpoint of Muslims, Jesus is returning as a Muslim, and he will break the cross (destroy Christianity) and be a slave to Islam. Muslims believe that Jesus will also abolish the jizya, which will leave Jews and Christians with only two options: convert to Islam or die!
    Koran verse 9:29 calls for the extortion of Jew and Christians. (Jizya)
    009.029
    YUSUFALI:
    Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
    The following is what the Islamic scriptures (the ahadith) say about the return of Jesus.
    Muslims believe that Jesus will come back to fight for Islam, not Christianity!
    Book 37, Number 4310:
    Narrated AbuHurayrah:
    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
    Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” Abu Huraira added “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): — ‘And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them.” (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)
    So, according to the Muslim belief, when Judgment Day arrives, Jesus will judge the people by the words of the Koran and not of the Holy Bible.
    Volume 4, Book 55, Number 658:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    Allah’s Apostle said “How will you be when the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you and he will judge people by the Law of the Quran and not by the law of Gospel (Fateh-ul Bari page 304 and 305 Vol 7)
    PLEASE do not be fooled when Muslims says that they respect Jesus! They are manipulating you with semantics…
    Koran Verse 5:32~
    A License to Kill
    I am sure that many of us have heard Muslims make the following statement.
    “To kill one innocent man or woman is to kill all of humanity; to save one human is to save all of humanity.”
    When they say this they are being verydeceptive. They are leaving out the most important part of the verse, which is “unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land” Here it is in its entirety.
    005.032
    YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land- it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.
    Obviously “mischief in the land” is a very open statement, and “mischief” can be defined as almost anything.
    Merriam-Webster Dictionary-mischief
    3 a : action that annoys or irritates
    As I said, this verse is a license to kill which is proven in this video. (Video from 2009)
    005.033
    YUSUFALI: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
    For the sake of our families future generations, we need to fightSharia with all we have, otherwise they will suffer.
    Muslim Majlis~ Jesus Taught Islam
    The name “Islam” simply means “Self-surrender to the Will of God.” It is the way of life that all Prophets throughout history have taught, from those known in the Western world such as Abraham, Moses and Jesus to those sent to other parts of the earth like Salih, Shu’ayb and Luqman, the African. The last and final Guide was Muhammad, may he be blessed, who lived in sixth century Arabia. A “Muslim,”(i,e. a self surrendered one,) is a follower of this faith. Nearly one in every five persons alive today is a Muslim.
    Right off the bat, the deception begins! Jesus did NOT teach people to kill, rape, and enslave. However, Koran verse 33:50 shows us that Mohammad indeed WAS a rapist!
    Koran verse 033.050
    YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
    Does anyone have any evidence that Jesus was a rapist? To make matters worse, numerous verses in the Koran state that the actions of Mohammad are to be followed for posterity. Here is one example thereof:
    Koran verse 007.157
    YUSUFALI: “Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper.”
    Let’s take a look at what else they are trying to sell to us! From their “About Islam” page:
    What does Islam teach?
    Islam calls humanity to the service of the One, Omnipotent Creator, Who is known as “Allah”, (The Deity) in the Arabic language. It further instructs people on how they may live together in peace and harmony regardless of race, class or beliefs.The unity of purpose brought by all previous religious guides is highlighted as well as traditional morality, the equality of the sexes before God and the virtues of patience and humbleness.
    Yes, Islam does instruct people on how we may live in “peace”. Unfortunately, this includes instructions to be obeyed by non-Muslims as well. Convert, pay the jizya, be put into slavery, or die.Sounds fair…
    Equality of the sexes?
    From Islamic Law.

    PERMITTING ONE’S WIFE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE
    m10.4 The husband may forbid his wife to leave the home (O: because of the hadith related Bayhaqi that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
    “It is not permissible for the woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to allow someone into her husband’s house if he is opposed, or to out if he is averse”).
    Moving on…
    From where do these teachings come?
    Muslims have two major sources from which they derive their religious teachings. The first is a book known as “the Quran,” the direct Revelation of God to His last Prophet, the blessed Muhammad. The second source is the collection of sayings and pronouncements of the Prophet which are complimentary to the Revelation. This second source is known as “the Hadith.”
    What about Mohammad? Who was he?
    Muhammad (pbuh) was born in Arabia in the year 570. His father’s name was Abdullah and his mother’s was Aminah. Abdullah died before his son was born and his mother died when he was yet a small child. He was first placed under the care of his grandfather and then later his uncle, who raised his nephew as his own. As a boy, Muhammad (pbuh), disliked the prevailing custom of idol worship practiced by his people. How many a night he must have paused to watch the stars and endless plains, while tending his uncle’s flocks, and wondered at the real Creator of it all. He shunned the mischief of his fellow youth and soon developed a reputation for honesty, generosity, and compassion.
    This man Muhammad (pbuh) is truly the hero of his age as well as an inspiration to ours.
    The following verse from the Hadith shows us who Mohammad was:
    Bukhari Hadith Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:
    Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
    Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”
    Well, there it is! Submit to Islam, or Mohammad the terrorist/warmonger would have killed you. Some hero.
    Now, let’s go back to see what else the Islamic salesmen have to say:
    How does Islam compare with Christianity and Judaism?
    Islam, or, the Way of Self-Surrender to God, was taught by all Prophets whether their race was Jewish, Chinese, African, Arab or Cheyenne. Accordingly, Moses, who is regarded as the pivotal figure in Judaism, and Jesus, who is the central personality of Christianity, both taught Islam to their peoples. The teachings of these great Messengers of God did not go unchanged, however, over the centuries, and one can find that many practices, beliefs, and customs practiced by the adherents of those faiths today differ from the original purity of their founder’s message. Muhammad (pbuh) simply brought the last installment of self-surrender (Islam) to the world in order to correct earlier corruption in humanity’s knowledge of the truth. So, if the roots of Judaism and Christianity are the same as Islam, why does Islam seem so exotic and strange? The problem is two-fold. On the one hand, there are people in the world who claim to be Muslims, but who do not follow the ethical or religious teachings of the faith. Unfortunately, the media has a universal fascination with negative news and a reluctance to highlight the positive.
    I am used to Muslims lying, but this Mosque is just outrageous. Besides being outrageous, their argument can be easily refuted. The Mosque claims that Jesus taught Islam. Since the Islamic scriptures proclaim that Muslims should not befriend Jews and Christians, then Jesus was also spreading the message to Muslims to shun Jews and Christians. Their argument does not make any sense at all!
    Koran verse 005.051
    YUSUFALI: O ye 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 amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
    According to Muslim Masjlis, Jesus was also fine with Christians being beaten into submission. OK, sure…
    Koran verse 009.029
    YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
    That wasn’t too hard! But, of course, all the negative publicity Islam gets is the media’s fault. Right.
    The reason Muslims attempt to make Islam and Christianity sound so similar is that Muslims want Christians to think that it is not a very big deal to convert to Islam.

    • Laila/ pseudo Raj, first improve your “lovely” Hindu brutes who rape and murder minors and innocent daughters on daily basis in India rather than victimizing Islam and trying to find faults of individuals living within the Islamic communities.

      Were it not for foreign instigation and greed for the control of natural resources in others’ lands due to scarcity in their own lands, especially the USA, the Muslim world would have remained peaceful.

      The aim of the USA and UK is three fold. 1. Deplete the resources 2. target Islam and impoverish Muslims and 3. Have political dominance over all Islamic nations.

      But do you think that works for over a longer period?? Let’s watch and see knowing very well that things do not remain on status quo for ever and the equation does tilt!!

      There is no raping allowed in Quran or Islam and stop propagating your own interpretations of Quran and Islam. I am a Muslim, living in a very large Islamic community and would advise you to put a period to your bulls!!

  3. FANATIC SIDES OF THE QURAN, MUHAMMAD, MUSLIMS, ISLAM, AND ALLAH

    http://www.1000mistakes.com

    Not to be panegyric about Muhammad is bad, according to Muslims. To ask critical questions about him is heresy and carries a death penalty. And to draw conclusions about him Muslims do not like – it counts nothing that the conclusions may be 100% true – makes it a duty for all and every Muslim to murder him. Or her. Muhammad had also women murdered when they opposed him, and he is the great idol – everything he did is right and ethically and morally correct. One can ask questions about Allah and one can disbelieve Allah, but not about the semi-saint Muhammad – he has to be an unquestioned saint even though he cannot be called a saint formally, because the Quran prohibits it. Why has he got to be without doubt the perfect and infallible saint? Simply because the historical Muhammad was a doubtful person with a doubtful morality, not the glorious picture Muslims paint – and all the same all Islam rests only, and absolutely and utterly only, on such a man’s words.
    Are you angry because of my words? But can you be angry because of things Islam itself tells? My words here are correct quotes and logical conclusions from reading the Quran, some strengthened Hadiths and Islam’s own history about Muhammad – f. ex. Muhammad Ibn Ishaq “The Life of Muhammad”. Can you be angry because I believe what Islam itself tells? Did you yourself really read the Quran and the Hadihs and Ibn Ishaq – read it with your brain and with all your knowledge about history, geography, archaeology, astronomy, psychology, etc., not only with your eyes and/or your imprinted old ideas – so that you saw the mistakes before you sentenced me to death?
    There is no doubt that Muhammad raped at least two women. There is no doubt that he liked many wives – mainly young wives – and may be some other women (there are f. ex. half a dozen known “connections” where one does not know if there was a marriage or just lustful sex. There is no doubt that Muhammad took slaves and also accepted and took part in slave trade (was it some 2000 women and children that were taken as slaves only in Khaybar and sold or used as gifts or “gifts” from the last Jewish tribe in/outside Yathrib/Medina – in Khaybar?). There is no doubt that he for the last 10 years lived from stealing/robbing, extorting and murdering (the years in Medina). There is no doubt that he used torture. There is no doubt that he betrayed people – he himself said that war was betrayal (and that what is not Muslim area, is war area). There is no doubt he was a murderer (he had many opponents murdered). There is no doubt he was a mass murderer (f. ex. the some 700 men in Khaybar). There is no doubt that Islam was very much changed (it is easy for anyone to see if they read the surahs chronologically) around/after 622 AD (what was wrong with his milder teachings in Mecca?). There is no doubt that Islam as thought in the Quran switched from a relatively benign one in the Mecca period, to an Islam that in Medina became a religion of hate, stealing/robbing, rape, suppression, and war. All this I have learnt from esteemed Muslim books – as I said: From among others Ibn Ishaq, Hadith and the Quran.
    Can you be angry with me because I quote such thoroughly Islamic books?
    Can you be angry with me because I point out that ALL of Islam is built only on this man’s word?
    Can you be angry with me because I mention this man’s merits as told in Islamic books?
    Can you be angry with me because I mention these plain ISLAMIC truths?
    Do you really want to murder me because I tell what the Quran and Hadith and Islamic history books really tell?
    Do you claim that I am making up things, when it is so easy to check if I quote and tell the truth?
    The thing is that freedom – also the freedom to tell what is true, not only what a terrorist or a dictator likes that you tell – has to be defended. And a sure way to loose that freedom, and all other freedom, is to give in to terror, be it from states or murderers. One can be careful because of danger. But one has to be able to face one’s own mirror in the morning.
    There were two reasons for our decision to start this work:
    1. There is a real chance that in the future Islam will become dominant, simply because of its militancy and use of different kinds of threats, pressure and terror. That will in case be a stagnant world – for more than 900 years Islam has been unable to bring forth a single new idea benefiting humanity. You can date the total stagnation to 1095 AD (ca. 1198 AD in Mahgreb/Spain) and a book by “the greatest Muslim after Muhammad” – Al-Ghazali.
    It also will be a world of scarcity and hunger, because a system where the most religious, not the best qualified, have the final word on many levels, will not be able to feed so big a population – Muslims produce many children. This even more so as such closed systems are very open to corruption and consequently to more inefficiency.
    Another reason for scarcity, will be that in Muslim countries, one cannot teach people critical thinking – they may start thinking about and asking questions about some of the mistakes and the nonsense logic many places in the Quran. And without critical thinking there is little progress.
    Well, maybe I am too pessimistic – in 1941 it looked like the Nazis were winning. But true information and a stronger will among the democracies to fight when they really had to, than the brainwashed Nazi religion – because it became a religion to many – believed, turned the tide. (Islamic ideology has many similarities to Nazism).
    2. 2. All the mistaken facts in the Quran prove that something is wrong – it cannot be made by an omniscient god. And all the invalid “signs”, statements, contradictions, and not to mention “proofs”, etc. are even worse, because to make mistakes can happen (though not to an omniscient god), but active use of invalid statements and invalid proofs, are not honest mistakes – that is the hallmark of cheats, deceivers and swindlers – – – and knowing the real character and moral of Muhammad according to ISLAMIC history (not the later religious gloss some Muslims have painted him with), that is sinister. Especially as there have been so many self-proclaimed “prophets” quite similar to Muhammad through history, though not as successful as him, that one recognize the picture. It also tells something that Muhammad “borrowed” the title “prophet” – he never was a prophet. May be he was a messenger or an apostle to something or someone, but not a real prophet – he neither had, nor claimed to have, not pretended to have the gift of being able to make prophesies.
    If Islam is a made up religion, and if there somewhere exists a real religion (which we honestly have come to doubt during our studies of the Quran), Islam blocks the road to that religion for all Muslims. It will in case be a rude awakening for them if there is a Last Day when they expect to enter the honestly primitive Paradise described in the Quran, and find – – what?
    My only request before you murder me – or anybody else – is that you first read all the Quran, and read the some 22-24 surahs from Medina separately or preferably all the surahs in the Quran chronologically, and thus control if my information about mistakes and contradictions and logically unfounded statements and “signs” and claims (remember that I said logically unfounded, because it is the foundation under them all that is lacking – Allah is a great god if he made the sun – – – but there nowhere really is proved that he made it). But during your reading you shall use your knowledge – not just what someone or the imams tell you, but real, checked knowledge – and your brain, not just your eyes or ears.
    It is not possible for an intelligent, educated person used to asking questions, not to see the mistakes and the logical wrongs in the Quran. (Why do you think the Quran and some educated Muslim so strongly stress that you should believe blindly and without questions and without asking for proofs or real indications? – but you have to be very naïve to accept blind belief impressed on you by leaders who like their leading positions, or by your parents who only has been told so by others who base their words just on claims, in such serious questions as religion and eternity – especially in a religion based only on the words (words that frequently collides with and are killed by harder demands and deeds – and deeds and demands are more reliable than words) of a man with as doubtful ethic and moral and a strong lust for power like Muhammad.
    A disturbing fact: 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 are no ptoof for Allah and impossible to ptove him, automatically there also is no proof for, and impossible to prove Muhammad’s claimed connection to Allah. If there is no Allah and/or no connection between Muhammad and a god, what then is Islam? And in this case: What are you murdering for?
    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 Islam?
    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 the thread “What is it with http://www.1000mistakes.com ?” (or make a page containing “1000 mistakes” in the title yourself if you want) on that forum will be read by us – it is a big international debate page.
