Radical Islamism or Islam?

In the last days God's judgment will befall all man made religions. There is only one true God. He alone created the heavens and the earth. Because of the tumultuous days in which we live, there are many who believe that the world we know today is coming to an end. Bible theologians refer to this prophetic time, as the glory of the Second Coming of Christ. (Revelation 1:7)

There are no new concepts of religion loosened upon this earth. The devil has impacted mankind to believe his wicked deceit and lies. "If it were possible, Lucifer would deceive even the most elect." (Mark 13:22)

Within the hearts of all human beings there is a desire to believe in a higher power. We were created with this desire from the very beginning by God Himself. Because of the fall of man into sin, there came confusion and falsehoods that surrounded the claims of the Almighty. However, The Ten Commandments of God point to His wisdom, love and deity.

There should be no tiptoeing lightly while seeking the truth. We need to be open while dialoguing matters of differing faiths. Let's put the disclaimer up front: "Not all Muslims are terrorists." However, is it a reasonable question to ask: Is Islam radical because of its teaching found in its holy book called the Koran?

America, the United Kingdom, and the rest of the free world could be facing a very real threat and dilemma. Mosques are sprouting up with every passing day, all across the United States and Europe. The Pew Research Institute reported that there is a substantial number of young American Muslims. who could cause chaos in our own country because of their religious beliefs.

Everyone should know what Islam's holy book calls for pertaining to infidels. It demands murder, torture, rape, and plunder of all infidels. It teaches that all who do not embrace this belief system will suffer and be meted out the cruelest of treatment, even death by beheading or stoning. The Koran teaches a holy war called a jihad.

Excerpts from American Thinker:
The Missing Moderate Muslims

Islam is the fasted growing religion in the word. People are born into the faith in countries where there are no other choices allowed.

As a nation under attack, we must ask many questions. Because Muslims believe in their book of faith, it is understandable why many people perceive the Koran as a manual for terrorism. It would also be reasonable to believe that only those who discarded a faith fettered upon them have become rational and peaceful people and eager to embrace the country that has given them a place to live and have their being. Indeed, one would think that they would be content and happily assimilated.

As long as practicing Muslims continue to believe in Islam's prophet and the book he put forth, they most likely are extremists at heart. There are too many living in our homeland who embraces terrorists groups. Thousands of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, rally around Hezbollah. What's with that?

There are 7,000 plus in the area who are active members of the Bint Jbeil cultural center, a Lebanese American Heritage Club of Hezbollah supporters. The club is frequented by the Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah.

The war on terror must be seen as a fight for our own peaceful way of life. Islam, therefore, will need to reform in order to live side by side with Judeo-Christian believing Americans. When will true reform take place? One homegrown Jehadist is one too many.

We already have been warned by Al Qaeda what they have in store for our great nation. Believe what you hear from Osama Ben Laden's own lips. A fatwa entitled "Declaration of War against the Americans," is all you need to understand how serious matters have become.

Instructions to Muslims about Unbelievers from the Koran:

Koran 9:29
Fight those who do not profess the true faith (Islam) till they pay the jiziya (poll tax) with the hand of humility.

So here Prophet Mohammed is instructing a true Muslim to fight people of other religions until the unbelievers debase themselves and pay tax for their existence. So the greatness of Islam is revealed only when followers of other religions are humiliated.

Koran 8:12
Remember Thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers, I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them.

Here Mohammed is giving step by step instruction on how to torture and kill Kafirs if they don't follow Islam.

Koran 9:5
Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

In the above verse Prophet Mohammed is clearly instructing his followers to kill the idolators in any brutal way possible until the idolators submit themselves to Islam. Allah is indeed merciful.

Koran 9:73
Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their Home: an evil fate.

Here Mohammed is trying to justify his brutal acts. He conveniently claims divine justification for the expression of his hatred by saying Allah himself revealed to him personally that people of other religions are evil and belong in Hell. Therefore, according to Mohammed any barbaric act against the unbelievers is completely justified.

Koran 4:144
Believers, do not choose the unbelievers rather than the faithful as your friends. Would you give Allah a clear proof against yourselves?

This verse clearly states that a Muslim can only befreind a Muslim. Mohammed in order to ensure that his followers will not befriend and get influenced by people of other religions, revealed this verse. This verse illustrates that if a Muslim befriends a Non-Muslim than the wrath of Allah will be on him. Therefore in Islam, people of other religions should be treated with contempt, disrespect and cruelty. The Koranic verses have been taken from works of Abdullah Yusuf Ali and N.J. Dawood (Koran verses )

Because our Constitution supports freedom of religion, we must be extremely prudent and cautious. Unfortunately, if another attack takes place in the United States, we will demand surveillance of all mosques by our government. Just asking radical Islamism or Islam?

As a nation under attack, we must ask many questions. Because Muslims believe in their book of faith, it is understandable why many people perceive the Koran as a manual for terrorism. It would also be reasonable to believe that only those who discarded a faith fettered upon them have become rational and peaceful people and eager to embrace the country that has given them a place to live and have their being. Indeed, one would think that they would be content and happily assimilated.
