The Annihilation of Civilizations

posted in: Newsletter | 23

By the time Mohammed died in 632 AD, Islam had used persuasion and jihad to subjugate Arabia. The annihilation of native Arabic culture is Sunna, the perfect example for all times and all Muslims. Said another way, the political theory of Islam is annihilation of Kafir civilization. How well did this political theory work out in history? Is this theory of annihilation at work today?

We have records of Mohammed’s last jihad against the Christians north of Arabia. After he died, Umar, the second caliph, took Mohammed’s jihad against the Christians and developed it into a war that conquered half of the Christian world. But this conquest was only the beginning of the political transformation. Sharia law was put into place and the Christian Kafirs became dhimmis. But Umar was not able to conquer Anatolia, the site known today as Turkey. For centuries, Islam attacked Anatolia and finally took Constantinople, now known as Istanbul, Turkey.

Take a look at the demographic history of the annihilation of the Greek Christian civilization:

This demographic growth chart of Islam has many things to teach us. The first is that the process of annihilation took centuries. Some people think that when Islam invaded, the Kafirs had the choice of conversion or death. No, absolutely not. Sharia law was put into place and the Christian dhimmis continued to have their “protected” status as People of the Book who lived under the Sharia law. The dhimmi paid heavy taxes, could not testify in court, hold a position of authority over Muslims and was humiliated by social rules. A dhimmi had to step aside for the Muslim, offer him his seat, could not carry a weapon and defer to a Muslim in every way. In all matters of society the dhimmi had to yield to the Muslim. Over the centuries, the degradation, lack of rights and the dhimmi tax caused the Christian to convert. It is the Sharia that destroys the dhimmis.

Notice where the curve is headed—100% Islam, just like Arabia. Today, Turkey is 99.7% Muslim. The Christian and Greek civilization of Anatolia is gone. It is annihilated.

What is tragic is that it seems that no one knows or cares. The Fethullah Gülen Movement (Turkish Muslim Brotherhood) of today pays for Christian ministers to go to Turkey and see an Islamic tolerant country where Christians live in beautiful harmony with Islam. And the ministers come back talking about what a wonderful society Turkey is and how well Christians are treated. After all, 0.3% of the Christians are still there in wonderful Turkey.

Look at two more Christian lands—Lebanon and Kosovo. This data only covers modern times and we do not see the beginning as we did in Turkey. See where these areas are going. In short decades, Lebanon and Kosovo will be 100% Islamic and two more Kafir civilizations will be annihilated.

It is a terrible irony that some Christians look at the destruction of Christianity and say that “those” were not real Christians. Indeed, that was the first reaction to the Islamic conquest of the first Christians, condemning those “other” Christians as heretics and saying that the jihad just pruned the garden of false doctrine.

Now, look at the next two demographic growth charts:

Pakistan and Bangladesh used to be Hindu cultures. Now they are Islamic and the few Christians and Hindus left are persecuted every day. While non-Muslims make great distinctions between religions, Islam sees them all as Kafirs. Orthodox Christians are Kafirs, Evangelical Christians are Kafirs, Hindus are Kafirs and atheists are Kafirs. ALL KAFIR civilizations must be annihilated. It is Sunna.

Let us look at one last feature of these curves. Once it starts, it never reverses. Islam never retreats. Slowly, year by year, century by century, the native Kafir civilization vanishes and is never able to fight back, never reverses Islam’s gains.

There is one exception to this law—force and the acceptance of war. Twice in history Islam has been driven out in Spain and Eastern Europe.

Today we see another approach to dealing with the Islam of annihilation. We ignore the history of annihilation and say that all we need to do is love Muslims and we will live in harmony, a wonderful multicultural civilization. A history of 1400 years without a single exception to the rule of annihilation and we will repeal it with a smile and a hug. All you need is love; love is all you need; all you need is love; love is all you need. Repeat that again and again, it will make a doctrine and history of annihilation go away. Actually, the way it works is that the history is never known. It is a cliché to say that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. It is a cliché but it is true. We have our foot on the path to annihilation today because we refuse to know history.

What is the lesson? Islam, peaceful Islam, is about destruction of all Kafir civilization. Only if the Kafirs realize the goal of Islam is annihilation of their culture, can the destruction be stopped. Islam is at war with Kafirs, and Kafirs are trying to “nice” their way out of destruction. Islam is at war, we are at nice. Mohammed has a dream that is coming true while we sleep.

    pittige: you have no clue at all what is the Tea Party. It is non-religious, non-excusionary, and even non-partisan. However, your distorted vision of it is exactly what the useful idiots if Islam want you to believe.

    There is not a single drop of racism in the Tea Party, whereas the Democratic Party cannot exist without drawing tracial lines between people.

    Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy’s long comment is the face of modern Islamic proselytizing and perfidy. Despite all attemnpts to dress it up as just another Abrahamic religion, Islam is anything but.

    For starters, Islam is NOT a religion and cannot be compared to any other religion, especially Judaism or Christianity.

    Muslims like El-Guindy are skilled in the ways of taqiyya – lying to the infidel for the betterment of Islam.

    In the West, we call what El-Guindy is peddling, a crock of camel dung known as Islamic supremacism.

    Islam is right and all other religions are wrong. They all strayed off message. This is coming from the tenets of a totally false religion. A pagan religion of Allah, the Moon god.

    Like I said, Islam is not a religion but a totalitarian ideology that controls every molecule of human existence from life to death. It has a religious component just as it has a component for everything else a human is commanded to do under Sharia Law.

    For the uninformed, Sharia = Islam = Sharia.

    You cannot get one without the other.

    Islam means “submission.”

    Jews pray, “You shall love your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your might, and with all your being.”

    Muslims pray, “Allah commands you to kill all the Jews. Kill them wherever you find them. Man, woman, mother, baby -none are innocent. Kill them all.”

    Why? Because Jews recognized that the last of God’s prophets died a millenia before this charlatan appeared.

    The differences between the religious precepts of Islam could not be more different than Judeo-Christian precepts.

    Central to Judaism and Christianity is a love relationship between humans and God.

    There is no love relationship between the Muslim and Allah. Unless you call honor killing an expression of that love.

    “Free will” – a Judeo-Christian concept central to the relationship between Man and God is nonexistent in Islam. Islam means “Submission,” which is the antithesis of free will.

    Under Sharia Law, belief in any another religion is equivalent to questioning the will of Allah or Mohammed and your reward for your free will is crucifixion or being burned alive.

    Yes, Catholics did that, too, but they stopped doing it 500 years ago. Nothing in Islam has changed in 1,400 years.

    Even questioning Islam in general will get you a death warrant. It is the perfect Catch-22 and the reason why Sharia Law has not changed and will never change.

    There are many Muslims who are decdent, loving people, but they were that way before Islam or in spite of Islam. They would be better off without it because Islam is incapable of reform.

    Bascially, you would have to start from the end and work your way to the beginning – because Mohammed introduced the concept of abrogation where everything said at a later date invalidated everything said at an earlier date.

    All of the hateful passages directed specifically at Jews, along with the other fatwas directed at Christians and kafirs would have to go. The concept of jihad would have to be changed, along with anything that justified treating non-Muslims as being less than Muslims.

    Muslims invented the African slave trade 600 years before exporting it to Europeans.

    What former Muslims learned was that it more realistic and truthful to abandon Islam entirely and to accept Christianity. Whenever a Muslim tells you how great is Isam, they are talking about its early years, before it went on to conquer 3/4 of the known world and kill 270 million people in the process.

    In reality, Mohammmed co-opted Judiasim and Chistianity in creating Islam as an Abrahamic religion. However, Allah is not the same god as the God of Israel.

    The Muslim’s claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god.

    To the Jews and Christians, Islam was rejected because it was seen as a false religion based on idolatry. Muhammed’s irrational hatred of Jews arose from their refusal to accept him as the last true Prophet of God at a time when both Jews and Christians accepted Malachi as being the last of the minor Prophets.

    Primarily because of its messianic promise, the book of Malachi is frequently mentioned in the Christian Bible.

    “Behold I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day.”(Malachi 3:23)

    Malachi probably lived during the times of Ezra and Nehemiah as his writings correspond with events which Nehemiah found on his 2nd visit to Jerusalem in 432 BC (Nehemiah 13:7) that it seems Malachi prophesied shortly before that date or sometime between 445 and 432 BC, or an entire millenia BEFORE Muhammed.

    So, you can imagine the skepticism of the Jews of Media and Mecca to what Muhammed was selling them.

    Muhammed then began drawing followers from caravan raiders and with promises of great wealth and power. The pattern of rape, plunder, murder, and proselytize began in his lifetime, but it was after his death that the Umayyah dynasty of Caliphs began and conquered half of the Christian world with the sword, and not the word.

    The spread of Islam by the sword has only recently been replaced by political propaganda and societal subterfuge.

    It is not “Islamophobia” when Islamists really are out to kill you.

    The genocidal march of Islam was defeated by the Crusades. But, not permanently. It was defeated by the first World War.

    But, not permanently.

    With the rise of Nazism in the 1940’s also came the rise of Wahabbism and Salafism – the fascistic versions of Islam.

    Enter the Muslim Brotherhood. founded in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna, its most famous leader was Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

    TheGrand Mufti was Hitler’s personal friend and also the co-architect of the Holocaust. After Adolf was to finish off the Jews of Europe, the Mufti would be allowed to finish off the Jews of Arabia.

    El-Guindy’s triumphalism is a not-so-veiled threat.

    -” he shall be thrust into the Crusher!”

    Birth rates in Islamic countries are plummeting, in fact.

    People are leaving Islamic countries in droves as well, because Islam has made them so unstable and impoverished.

    Christians are leaving Islamic countries in droves as well due to the non-stop persecution and evil dictators who wrap their dictatorships with the halo of Sharia.

    Islam is harmful to progress, prosperity and human rights as a political philosophy.

    We really need to stop being so nice. Our media, politicians, infrastructure etc is all working against our own cultures it needs to stop right now. We need an uprising and not one of words but one of action and physical action if required to rid this cult from the planet not only from the west or we are doomed as are our children.

  5. James

    Muslims are apt to say things such as “Jesus is a slave of Allah” and to deny that he (Jesus) should receive worship.

    However, in John 9: 35-41 of the New Testament in the Bible, Jesus accepts worship from a formerly blind man whom he had healed, and he doesn’t rebuke the man for doing so.

    If Muslims want to believe that only the Quran is authoritative and the Bible isn’t, then fine. Still, Muslims shouldn’t claim that they believe the Bible (both the Old and New Testaments) when they really don’t.

    Also, note that how, if Bibles are intercepted in some Islamic theocracies such as iran and Saudi Arabia, then the books are usually confiscated and destroyed.

    Moreover, many Muslims believe that music is haram (forbidden), although King David (“Dawud” in Arabic) was an avid musician and even sang and danced when the ark of the covenant was returned to him.

    As for alcohol: I don’t wish to impugn Mohammed or Joseph Smith for being against alcohol, nor do I condemn Muslims or Mormons from being teetotalers. I do note however, that Jesus and other Biblical figures consumed moderate amounts of alcohol, according to the Bible (both Torah and NT).

    Islam’s blasphemy laws, taqiyya and repression of women are the greatest obstacles to progress imaginable.

    Islam has no future. Moslems are leaving Islam quietly everywhere around the world. They have eyes and they are reading the foundational materials of Islam: the Trilogy where the truth about Islam is found. The Trilogy is the writing of immoral, violent and barely literate Bedouins glorying in rape, plunder and pillage. Islam is for barbarians.

    To second BJ’s analogy – how many Nobel Prize winners has the Arab/Muslim world contributed and in which fields of endeavour? I can think of a few in literature but are there ANY in the sciences or medicine? How many Christian or more to the point how many Jews overall have been awarded the Nobel for their contributions to mankind? The answer to that question speaks volumes for the contribution of Islam to the benefit of humanity!

    To Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy and pittige maki,

    Belief systems matter. I found this to be a great article, even if it is a bit long:
    http://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/why-the-arabic-world-turned-away-from-science

    It is a good tracing of the rise and fall of Islamic scientific inquiry, and how that compares to Christian scientific projects. I think he touches on some pretty eye-opening spots for those who like to slag Christian thought/history/etc. He also explores whether Islam ever can get back to what they once were (hint: no – not without a top-to-bottom reworking of their whole belief system).

    To me, it isn’t an accident that most of the world’s scientific progress has come via societies built on Bible-based belief systems. Islam definitely is not one of these, in spite of apparent references to biblical characters in the Koran.

    Bill, i fully support your concerns, so well put and documented.

    As i see it, there’s no question that the intention of mohammedan jihad is to eliminate Western Culture. As a Christian, i’m concerned that the societies of America and Europe have not only put their heads in the sand, but have abandoned their Judeo-Christian heritage, which could have acted as their bulwark against the raging forces of the mohammedans. Martin Luther wrote: ‘A mighty fortress is our God’. Political ‘multi-culturalism’ and leftist pandering to the mohammedans will only exacerbate and speed the demise of the civilization of our Western world. And woe to the women of that world who will become enslaved as trinkets of pleasure to the mohammedans. The compound term ‘Peaceful Islam’ is an oxymoran. The ‘peace’ of which this term speaks is the peace of the grave! The robust immigration of mohammedans into the societies of the US and Europe are an integral part of mohammedan jihad, and once those infiltrations have attained sufficient statistical power within those societies, there’s no question but that they’ll replacee the Consitutions of the host nations, and quickly turn the legal system of these societies into sharia-based countries. The plague of mohammedanism is truly a global cancer, and the measures required to extirpate this disease from the world body will be similar to those required to do the same regarding the dreaded malady itself. Sadly, time for such mitigation may well have passed, and i fear for the world my daughters will have to inhabit.

    Best regards in your courageous efforts.

    Dr. Martin Lee Collin.

    I agree with the most articles but i must admit that what is NOW correct for islam was once and is still evidence for Christianity. Look at this website :
    http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/
    I think every religion is sick in the same bed, the Teaparty is an even great danger as Islam, and the teaparty = christianity. Remeber Roosevelt who said :”The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes strong than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism ” ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” This goes up for the Teaparty as well as for Islam. The 60 million slaves deported to the cottonfields had to work for christians, and WWII has killed 60 million people and it were christians who killed eachother. So not only islam is dangerous, EVERY religion is dangerous.

    To Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy and pittage make,

    Let me see…what words come to mind when I read your comments about Mr. Warner’s excellent piece entitled “The Annihilation of Civilizations?” Misguided! Confused! Ignorant! Uneducated! Taqiyya! Propaganda! Brainwashed! Arrogant! Jihadi! Anti-Western! Bullshit! Pathetic! etc., etc.

    It really is a shame that the two of you do not understand the very totalitarian ideology of hatred that you are attempting (and failing) to defend. All of your smoke, mirrors, and rhetorical bullshit cannot obfuscate the horrible truth about the sick and morally bankrupt ideology of Islam. Did you notice that I did not call it a “religion?”

    From the oasis cities of Makkah and Madinah in the Arabian desert, the message of Islam went forth with electrifying speed. Within half a century of the Prophet’s death, Islam had spread to three continents. Islam is not, as some imagine in the West, a religion of the sword nor did it spread primarily by means of war. It was only within Arabia, where a crude form of idolatry was rampant, that Islam was propagated by warring against those tribes which did not accept the message of God–whereas Christians and Jews were not forced to convert. Outside of Arabia also the vast lands conquered by the Arab armies in a short period became Muslim not by force of the sword but by the appeal of the new religion. It was faith in One God and emphasis upon His Mercy that brought vast numbers of people into the fold of Islam. The new religion did not coerce people to convert. Many continued to remain Jews and Christians and to this day important communities of the followers of these faiths are found in Muslim lands.

    Moreover, the spread of Islam was not limited to its miraculous early expansion outside of Arabia. During later centuries the Turks embraced Islam peacefully as did a large number of the people of the Indian subcontinent and the Malay-speaking world. In Africa also, Islam has spread during the past two centuries even under the mighty power of European colonial rulers. Today Islam continues to grow not only in Africa but also in Europe and America where Muslims now comprise a notable minority.

    Because religion with Allah is only Islam, Islam was destined to become a world religion and to create a civilization which stretched from one end of the globe to the other. Already during the early Muslim caliphates, first the Arabs, then the Persians and later the Turks set about to create classical Islamic civilization. Later, in the 13th century, both Africa and India became great centers of Islamic civilization and soon thereafter Muslim kingdoms were established in the Malay-Indonesian world while Chinese Muslims flourished throughout China.

    Islam is a religion for all people from whatever race or background they might be. That is why Islamic civilization is based on a unity which stands completely against any racial or ethnic discrimination. Such major racial and ethnic groups as the Arabs, Persians, Turks, Africans, Indians, Chinese and Malays in addition to numerous smaller units embraced Islam and contributed to the building of Islamic civilization. Moreover, Islam was not opposed to learning from the earlier civilizations and incorporating their science, learning, and culture into its own world view, as long as they did not oppose the principles of Islam. Each ethnic and racial group which embraced Islam made its contribution to the one Islamic civilization to which everyone belonged. The sense of brotherhood and sisterhood was so much emphasized that it overcame all local attachments to a particular tribe, race, or language–all of which became subservient to the universal Brotherhood and sisterhood of Islam.

    The global civilization thus created by Islam permitted people of diverse ethnic backgrounds to work together in cultivating various arts and sciences. Although the civilization was profoundly Islamic, even non-Muslim “people of the book” participated in the intellectual activity whose fruits belonged to everyone. The scientific climate was reminiscent of the present situation in America where scientists and men and women of learning from all over the world are active in the advancement of knowledge which belongs to everyone.

    The global civilization created by Islam also succeeded in activating the mind and thought of the people who entered its fold. As a result of Islam, the nomadic Arabs became torch-bearers of science and learning. The Persians who had created a great civilization before the rise of Islam nevertheless produced much more science and learning in the Islamic period than before. The same can be said of the Turks and other peoples who embraced Islam. The religion of Islam was itself responsible not only for the creation of a world civilization in which people of many different ethnic backgrounds participated, but it played a central role in developing intellectual and cultural life on a scale not seen before. For some eight hundred years Arabic remained the major intellectual and scientific language of the world. During the centuries following the rise of Islam, Muslim dynasties ruling in various parts of the Islamic world bore witness to the flowering of Islamic culture and thought. In fact this tradition of intellectual activity was eclipsed only at the beginning of modern times as a result of the weakening of faith among Muslims combined with external domination. And today this activity has begun a new in many parts of the Islamic world now that the Muslims have regained their political independence.

    The above is incorporated from the Magazine “Islam: A Global Civilization”, prepared by Islamic Affairs Department, The Embassy of Saudi Arabia, Washington, D.C.

    This tremendous spreading of Islam and its continous growing in all parts of the world is a mercy from Allah, because Allah loves His servants and wants to take them to paradise. Allah defends His religion of pure monotheism and no power can stop that. He wants to guide His servants one last time to the right path of Islam, his only true religion, and not the wrong path of polytheism, trinitarianism, vicarious atonement, cricifixion, original sin .Jesus is God or son of God etc).

    Islam is widely considered Europe’s fastest growing religion, with immigration and above average birth rates leading to a rapid increase in the Muslim population.

    To give a simple example:

    Macedonia
    Total population 2.1 million
    Muslim population 630,000

    Netherland
    Total population 16.3 million
    Muslim population 945, 000

    France
    Total population 62. 3 million
    Muslim population 5-6 million

    Germany
    Total population 58.4 million
    Muslim population 3 million

    Austria
    Total population 8.2 million
    Muslim population 339,000

    Belgium
    Total population 10.3 million
    Muslim population 0.4 million

    Bosnia
    Total population 3.8 million
    Muslim population 1.5 million

    Denmark
    Total population 5.4 million
    Muslim population 270,000

    Albania
    Total population 3.1 million
    Muslim population 2.2 million

    Spain
    Total population 43.1 million
    Muslim population 1 million

    Sweden
    Total population 9 million
    Muslim populatiion 300,000

    Switzerland
    total population 7.4 million
    Muslim population 310, 000

    Turkey (the former capital of the Roman eastern empire – Constantinople – )
    Total population 65.7 million
    Muslim population 68 million

    America
    Total population 259 million
    Muslim population 7 million

    Canada
    total population 31.6 million
    muslim population 940,000 – predicted to triple over the next 20 years

    Well Bill Warner and those applauding your silly and false articles about Islam, what can you do about that?! Can you defy your Creator and stops His divine plans to spread His religion to the whole world?

    The overwhelming numbers of westerners embracing Islam in the West is a clear indication that Islam is a true religion and people find in it the road to salvation.

    How true is this phrase?
    Those who do not learn from History are condemned to repeat it.

    Hold that phrase in your mind and think of this:
    Francisco Pizzaro the Spanish Conquistador, who conquered the Inca Empire of 30 million people with just 2 boatloads of Spaniards. 632 Spanish soldiers of fortune against 30 million Incas, who had a standing army of 400,000 soldiers.

    How on earth was that possible? How could just 632 men bring down a civilization of 30 million?
    The answer is that by making alliances with subversive elements within the Inca Empire he encouraged the Incas to conquer themselves. And then he took over and the Inca Civilization was no more

    Islam has the oil revenue at it’s disposal and is making alliances with our subversive elements
    1. The media
    2. The govenrment
    3. The Left
    4. Converting prisoners in the Jails

    Islam has 31 Million people in Europe and they are going to do to European Civilization what Francisco Pizzaro did to King Atahualpa and his Incas.

    The implications for the future of Europe are so profound that we are going to find ourselves going the way of the Incas

    We can only survive by standing with the other Nationalist peoples of Europe

    Those who do not learn from History are condemned to repeat it.

    Great Article.
    we need to start verbal and written criticism of all individuals, writers in newspapers and politicians, that are writing and speaking in public of the religion of peace. We, the public need to call them to task when in public speaking attempt to humanise and defend Islam

    The biggest problem is our leaders keep calling Islam a religion of peace. U.S. president invites American Muslims at the White House and praises them. We are all ignoring the bloody and colonial history of Islam. If we call Islam a religion of peace then Nazis should be called saints too.

    Bill Warner’s essay is clear and fact-based, like always. People like Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy only contribute to the interpretation part. Servile apologists of the totalitarian Islam like him are ready for playing the propaganda music for the new rulers of the West – thereby illustrating how real the “Sharia thread” indeed already is.

    It is terrifying how easy the 270 million victims of brute force who didn’t find Islam as overwhelming and electrifying as Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy does, can be ignored.

    But: To be silent about them, means to kill them a second time.

    Just the facts Bill Warner, just the facts!

    Today, the Christians and the Jews in the West have deserted their faith wholesale leaving -the churches and synagogues almost empty while the newly-built mosques and Islamic centers are attracting rapidly growing numbers. As it seems, Judaism and Christianity have failed them, and turning towards Islam became their refuge. Most of these converts are young, educated and intelligent. No longer is Islam foreign to Europe or American scenes. There are already millions of Muslims in Europe and America today and their numbers are increasing fast.

    The question then arises: What attracts people in the West to Islam?

    People in the West are rich, well educated, blessed with surplus of food and high technology. They spend their lives working non-stop to the extent of having no time to think in any other matter than achieving success and seeking worldly pleasures. They entertain themselves by throwing plenty of money on gambling, wine and women thus committing sins forbidden in every religion. As time goes by, and death hovers over their heads, those of them who have been touched by Allah’s guidance slow down and think: Where do we come from? Why are we here? Where do we go from here? Is it possible to defeat the angel of death by amassing enough power and wealth? What would be our fate in the Hereafter, is it Heaven or Hell? Is the wealth amassed and power gained in the worldly life would be sufficient to rescue us from Hell fire, or Allah’s parameter in judging the deeds of His servants in the Hereafter is rather different?

    The Koran says concerning the love of man to earthly life and his neglect of the Hereafter:

    Woe unto every backbiter, slanderer, who has gathered riches and counted them over thinking his riches have made him immortal!
    No indeed; he shall be thrust into the Crusher!
    And what shall teach thee what is the Crusher?
    The Fire of Allah kindled roaring over the hearts.
    Covered down upon them, in columns outstretched (Al-Humazah 1-9).

    People are converting to Islam for a number of reasons; the following is some key aspects that draw Jews and Christians to the Islamic faith:

    1- Islam is the faith of equality and justice for all. Islamic religion states that people all over the world, regardless of their races, are born slaves of Allah, equal and similar. One Koranic verse eliminated all traces of racial superiority from the hearts of the believers. All human beings are created by the same One God – Allah – and are descendants of the same one couple. Allah creates every child as pure and sinless. Racial or ethnic background or socio-economic status carries no weight in His eye; the most honorable in the sight of Allah are the most god-fearing of His servants.

    O mankind, We have created you male and female, and appointed you races and tribes, that you may know each other. Surely the noblest among you in the sight of Allah is the most god-fearing of you. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware (Al-Hjurat, 13).

    1200 years before the American constitution was drafted, Islam established the equality of all human beings in unambiguous terms. Prophet Muhammad said:
    “People are like the teeth of a comb. You are all from Adam, and Adam is from dust. There is no superiority of white over black or of Arab over non-Arab, except by piety.”

    Converts to Islam say that Christian discrimination left them disconnected and disfranchised, but now after they embraced Islam, they have the distinction, purpose and empowerment that even the Civil Rights movement did not give them. As Bruce Fields notes in “Introducing Black theology: Three Critical Questions for the Evangelical Church”, it is unfortunate, that “because the issue of racism still exists in our society, it still exists in the church. He adds that “if the world does not see true unity among those who claim allegiance to Jesus Christ, the church should not be surprised when the world is unimpressed with our proclamation that the Father has sent the Son.”

    2- Islamic supreme authority is the Holy Koran – the Word of Allah. It is brief and to the point, yet holds detail of every subject related to the daily life on earth and beyond. Arabic being ever popular language, with translations available in most modern languages around the globe, the Koran is easy to read and straightforward to understand therefore, new comers find it simple to comprehend.

    3- The Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, holds a paramount position in Islamic Faith, yet he is not considered as a god, his place in Islam is rather of a man, a Messenger, and a servant of Allah. As a person Muhammad was an incredible man, and people see in him a perfect example to follow.

    4- Islam is monotheistic religion. It calls upon people to believe in One True God only. People are told in the Koran:

    Say: ‘He is Allah, He is One; The Self-Sufficient, The Eternal God; He begets not, nor was He begotten; There is none equal to Him (Al-Ihklas, 1-4).

    5- Islam considers Jesus as a human and a Prophet of Allah sent to the Children of Israel. This Islamic belief rather than as a divine figure appeals to those who find the Christian concept of the Trinity too confusing to understand.

    6- Islamic basic beliefs are relatively straightforward and easy to understand as well as to perform, compared with other fundamental religions percepts. For example, the five pillars of Islam: Shahada, obligatory prayers, fasting in the month of Ramadan, paying Zakat (Charity) to the poor, and traveling to Makkah to perform the Hajj; even the younger followers can comprehend them without hardship or confusion.

    7- Islam’s great civilization and rich history has an intellectual appeal for many people. Converting to Islam means that the new comers will also become part of the Muslim Ummah (nation).

    8- Islam’s emphasis on the importance of family life and social values is one of the key aspects that attract men and women from various cultural backgrounds, particularly those serious in true and traditional family values and moral teachings.

    9- Islam is not only a religion but also a complete way of life, where everything is detailed in the Koran very clearly, and further explanation is available through the Sunna of the Prophet.

    10- Many of the Prophets and stories found in the Bible such as the creation of Adam and Eve, the story of Noah and the flood, the events in the life of Abraham and his sons, the Psalms of David, and the kingdom of Solomon, the Exodus of Israelites from Egypt led by Moses, Jesus preaching the Injeel (Good News) to the Children of Israel – are present in the Koran as well. Christians and Jews who convert to Islam often comment they are attracted to the faith partly because of its similarities to Christianity and Judaism.

    11- Disgrace and shame undermining the Catholic Church.
    People in the West also embrace Islam because of the bad example the Catholic Church has set to its adherents. The Roman Catholic Church has been rocked by a series of clergy sex scandals around the globe.
    The Catholic Church in the United States is facing mounting criticism following allegations that it covered up cases of abuse for decades. The Catholic cardinals were charged of sex abuse. The cost to the U.S. Roman Catholic Church of sexual predators in the priesthood has climbed past $ 1 billion, according to tallies by American bishops and an associated Press review of known settlements. This figure is guaranteed to rise, probably by tens of millions of dollars, because hundreds more claims are pending.
    Allegations of sexual misconduct by priests and cases of sex abuse were launched by the victims against the archdioceses of Boston, Dallas, Davenport, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Louisville, Portland, San Diego, Spokane and Tucson.
    Dioceses around the United States have spent at least $ 1.06 billion on settlements with victims, verdicts, legal fees, counseling and other expenses since 1950. In December 2006 the Archdiocese of Los Angles agreed to pay out of 60 million dollars to settle 45 of the over 500 cases pending concerning abuse by priests. In July 2007 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed to pay $660 million settlement to hundreds of people who claimed to have been abused by clergy.
    At least 325 priests of America’s 46,000 priests were removed from duty or resigned since the scandal began in January, 2002.
    There have been allegations that the church tried for years to cover up cases of abuse, rather than admit the problem.
    The crimes committed by priests have physically, psychologically and spiritually damaged thousands of children and their families. In his annual letter to priests, Pope John Paul II referred to the “sins of our brothers”, and admitted that some priests had succumbed to “the most grievous form of evil”. He said in another occasion that the sexual abuse rocking his church caused “a deep sense of sadness and shame,” but he urged Catholic youth to support the vast majority of priests who do good. Advocates for victims of sexually abusive priests, however, complained that the pope’s comments seemed to sympathize more with priests than with Roman Catholics who were molested. The church was accused of covering up misconduct by priests, in some cases by moving known abusers from job to job.
    Scandals of sex abuse are not only related to priests and bishops of the Catholic Church in the United States, but also to TV evangelists and Christian leaders who are important members of the Christian Coalition.

    Allah infuses security and peace into man, yet the Christian religion falls short of giving him this sense of peace. It is the Islamic religion, alone, that teaches man the greatness of Allah and which, at the same time guides him in regard to where the human soul will go after death. The Islamic religion guides man not only in the world, but also in the Hereafter. It teaches in a plain and logical manner what should be done in the world in preparation for a comfortable life in the Hereafter. An awareness of the fact that Allah will subject human beings to an equitable interrogation in the Hereafter on what they have done in the earthly life, will urge them that they should abide by justice and integrity in the present life.

    In Islam belief and logic do not contradict each other, which is the common blemish of other religions. Islam resolved a number of theological questions and issues of belief which Christianity could not satisfactory address.

    Islam is attractive to non-Muslims because of its universal Message. In Islam the faithful believe that everyone is born Muslim and thus call the transformation reversion, not conversion. Islam is also attractive because its teachings incorporate other traditions, honoring Jesus Christ, the Patriarch Abraham and other Biblical figures as prophets. Though missionary work is rare in Islam, spreading the Message is demanded by the Koran. Conversion to Islam is as simple as reciting one sentence: “I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger” – in front of witnesses, a ceremony known as Shahadah.

    All worldly goods are but a shadow that will pass away. Its intrinsic and eternal value is small. But those who work righteousness in faith are on the true path of self-development. The reward they will get will be intimately more than their merits entitle them to, for they will partake of the boundless bounties of Allah. Their happiness will not only be multiplied, but it will be of a magnificent sublime quality, and it will endure without any chance of its loss or diminution.

    It is not your wealth nor your children that shall bring you near to Us, except of him who believes, and does righteousness; those – there awaits them the double recompense for that they did, while secure they (reside) in the dwellings on high (Saba’, 37).

    Those who are guided to Islam have been actually touched by Allah’s care and are in fact blessed with His grace and Mercy. Allah guides to His light whomsoever He wills, and sets on the right path whomsoever He pleases.

    We have sent not Messenger save with the tongue of his people, that he might make (the Message) clear to them, then Allah leads astray whomsoever He will, and He guides whomsoever He will; and He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise (Ibrāhim, 4).

    Had Allah so willed, He would have guided all humanity to His right path, but He gives light according to His wisdom and guides to His light whomsoever He wills.

    Say: ‘To Allah belongs the argument conclusive; for had He willed, He would have guided you all.’ (Al-An’ām, 149).

    Thou guidest not whom thou likest, but Allah guides whom He wills, and knows very well those that are guided (Al-Qasas, 56).

    The media in the United States and also in Europe classifies Muslims as terrorists, highjackers and kidnappers. False and brutal accusations are launched every day by the biased media against Muslims and Islam.

    But why then would anyone even look at Islam? Why thousands of Christians embrace Islam in Europe and America every day? Moreover, why Christian priests and missionaries also embrace Islam?

    Abdullah al-Faruk, a priest converted to Islam, forwarded the reasons for his conversion as follows:

    “I soon discovered that there was a great deal of jealousy prevalent in the ministerial hierarchy. Things had changed from that to which I was accustomed. Women (in the church) wore clothing that I thought was shameful. People dressed in order to attract attention, usually from the opposite sex.

    I discovered just how great money and greed play in the operation of church activities. There were many small churches struggling, and they called upon us to hold meetings to help raise money for them. I was told that if a church did not have a certain number of members, then I was not to waste my time preaching there because I would not receive ample financial compensation. I then explained that I was not in it for the money and that I would preach if there was only one member present”and I do it for free! This caused a disturbance.

    I started questioning those whom I thought had wisdom, only to find that they had been putting on a show. I learned that money, power and position were more important than teaching the truth about the Bible.

    As a Bible student, I knew fully well that there were mistakes, contradictions and fabrications. I thought that people should be exposed to the truth about the Bible. The idea of exposing the people to such aspects of the Bible was a thought supposedly attributable to Satan. But I began to publically ask my teachers questions during Bible classes, which none of them could answer. Not a single one could explain how Jesus was supposedly God, and how, at the same time, he was supposedly the Father, Son and Holy Ghost wrapped up into one and yet was not a part of the trinity. Several preachers finally had to concede that they did not understand it but that we were simply required to believe it.”

    Abdullah al-Faruk goes on:
    “Cases of adultery and fornication went unpunished. Some preachers were hooked on drugs and had destroyed their lives and the lives of their families. Leaders of some churches were found to be homosexuals. There were pastors even guilty of committing adultery with the young daughters of other church members. All of this coupled with the failure to receive answers to what I thought were valid questions was enough to make me seek a change.”

    Another Egyptian priest by the name of Ibrahim Khalil was asked after converting to Islam about the salient features of Islam which have attracted his attention most. And he answered:

    “My faith in Islam has been brought about through reading the Holy Koran and the biography of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him. I no longer believed in the misconceptions against Islam and I am especially attracted by the concept of unity of God, which is the most important feature of Islam. God is only One. Nothing is like Him. This belief makes me the servant of God only and of no one else. Oneness of God liberates man from servitude to any human being and that is true freedom. I also like very much the rule of forgiveness in Islam and the direct relationship between God and His servants.”

    Say: “O my people, who have been prodigal against yourselves, do not despair of Allah’s mercy; surely Allah forgives sins altogether; surely He is the All-forgiving, the All-Compassionate.
    Turn unto your Lord and surrender to Him, before the chastisement comes upon you, then you will not be helped.” (Al-Ahzab 53, 54).

    By the way Bill dear, I have written few articles in your wretched bulletin ‘Burning the Koran’. Read them haply you may be guided.

    I tried to send this article to vatican radio but don’t know how. there is no sign email it to a friend. Do you think it is possible to add such a thing to your website. I believe it is urgent that important institute such as the Catholic Church should know that. The Pope does. he knows about the true, criminal nature of Islam, but he was silenced by the left wing in the vatican and the church in general. the left wing, dear Sir, is the Judah, the islam enabler. Even in vatican radio they dominate and things are presented as if there is no problem whatsoever. all comes to be our fault because we don’t share enough our wealth with them or because we don’t love them as much as we should, etc. But fortunately there is a radio called radio Maria where its directors, padre Levio, knows also the dark murderous nature of islam and he sometimes speaks out against it.
    if you could send this article to vatican radio it would be good. this is also a part of our work. we need to press our point, drive it to those who are in a position of influencing others, don’t you think so. Thank you.
    the other day I sent a strong, very strong message to the bbc. we cannot afford to be silent anymore.

    I just wrote a piece today entitled, “Why Do Some Choose to be Blind?” Now I read this excellent article steeped in the history and projection of Islam with Shariah destroying cultures slowly but surely. The appeasing leaders of nations are leading their people into Islam if this trend continues. I shall fervently share this information and and continue to learn what it is I can do to drive this evil culture out of ours. This is the classic Good vs Evil.

    Awsome! Here we are in the midst of asymmetrical warfare, and our ruling class of liberals haven’t a clue that anything serious is even going on. This coming election may be our last chance to turn this around.
    It is all important that knowledgeable Americans gain the controlling positions in government. We must study this situation carefully to determine how to turn the forces of this war around toward victory. We must have conservatives (esp. Christian) in power to carry out the new and necessary strategies.
    Since the power of the Islamists is based on terrorism and our aversion to death, we must develop a willingness to kill and die as necessary. This would require quite a change for some of us conscientious objectors. Of course, we could all follow Matthew 10:28 and die and go to heaven (are you ready?).
    Because of our nation-wide rejection of God, this sword of the prophet may turn out to be the Sword of the Lord! In that case, it’s every man for himself — in his prayer chamber!
