      Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, I’ve heard said. I don’t think any of them were concerned about anything but the truth of their message.

    as a Muslim who happens to be an Arab as well, I find the definition of the “innocent” here surprising and very wrong. The innocent doesn’t have to be a Muslim or a believer.
    The innocent is anyone who has done no crime to be punished for. And being a non believer is not a crime for man to decide about.

    And about the book your reading from, could you tell me the name of the author , please.

    Thank you

      Ms or Mr. Hind: How do we know that you are not just implementing Taqiyya or Katman here? Because the presenters here rely upon text from the Koran and Sharia legal sources.

      Fundamentally, Islam cannot accept separation of religion and state, and intends to convert the entire world or have dominion over the world to implement sharia law. There are Muslim mosques in Rome, the Dome of the Rock sits upon the site of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem: when I see a Roman Catholic church in Mecca, and Muslims embracing separation of church and state, then I’ll believe that Islam is a religion of peace.

      I grew up with Roman Catholic ethical training, but my parents made sure that I understood that I am free to choose my own religion. When I was still very young, and I accepted catholicisim because the priest at mass said that Catholics believed in separation of church and state – from the reading in Mathew where Jesus says render to God what is God’s and to Ceasar what is Caesars. I was already convinced of the soundness of the principle of separation of Church and state, and so when the Priest said this, at it was less than 10 years after Kennedy had been assassinated, I decided I could be and would be a Catholic. I then enjoyed all the cultural aspects of being a Catholic, including Christmas celebrations, midnight mass, fish fries on fridays during lent and so on. But then in 2004, the Bishop in my town said that if I voted for John Kerry, a catholic, then it was a grave sin and I couldn’t go to communion. At that point I realized that the Catholic church had become politicized. As a result, I couldn’t consider myself a catholic at that point, I felt estranged from my religion. This was very difficult, because after a half of lifetime inside the tradition, I was suddenly cut off from the religion. Had I changed? Had the religion? All the old customs I marked the passing of the calendar were now distanced from me. I felt a huge part of my life missing. I was and still am a cultural catholic. I saw Michael Moore, once a seminarian, refer to himself as a recovering Catholic. I would refer to myself as an Avignon Catholic. Now with Pope Francis I have some cautious comfort again in Catholicism, but I am saying this to make the point – I know what it means to separate one from one’s religion is psychologically and emotionally quite difficult. This would be made much worse if all one’s family, friends, society and country even insist upon it. So I am not envious of people who are raised as Muslims. They are trapped in a system. But if they become objectively educated on what their faith really means, who really created it and why, what that person who founded their religion did: deception, banditry, extortion, assassination, murder, genocide, (Mohammed ran Medina like a mafiosa – if you want to get an idea of what that is like watch “Goodfellows”). That’s the reality of the received history of Mohammed (no one knows the actual history), that is who Muslims are expected to follow, then one wakes up to the objective fact that this is terrible religion to be in.

      Muslims of course are in denial of all of this and what it potentially could mean. I understand that, from my difficulties with Catholicism. And I know its way worse for Muslims, because awakening to reality is essentially an act of apostasy, which is subject to the death penalty in real Islam.

      Psychologically, then, I believe the spread of Islam, especially over the Christian areas that it conquored in Syria, Palestine and Egypt in the 7th century, was a result of a mass form of Stockholm syndrome. We know Stockholm syndrome is where captives positively identify with the ideology, or beliefs of their captors. It is psychological submission under a state of capture and terror. Deep down inside, I believe profoundly, that most muslims are trapped into Islam as a function of Stockholm Syndrome. They know killing people for having different beliefs is wrong, and so the religion of Islam must be wrong, but they can’t leave, because they are captives, and so they develop a blind eye to Islam’s deficiencies.

      Keep in mind, Mohammed, after preaching Islam for 12 years in Mecca, only converted about 150 people. It was a deficient religion. It could not thrive on persuasion alone. It only began to thrive with the introduction of coercion at Medina. That was great for Mohammed, but fundamentally undermines the validity of Islam as a religion. Christianity spread without reliance upon coercion for 300 years, until it became obvious that it would soon become the religion of Rome (and areas outside of Rome). In that case the state coopted Chritianity in order to not be left behind. Buddhism spread the same way – without reliance on coercion. Islam can’t exist without coercion. It can’t even stand the drawing of a cartoonist of Mohammed.

      In Western civics, founders of religions are generally revered. You won’t see anyone drawing provocative pictures of Buddha in the west. But politicians must be lampooned. This makes democracy and peaceful transfer of power possible. Mohammed was a founder of a religion, and to that extent he should be revered, but he was also a politician and the founder of a political movement and ideology, and to that extent he is highly subject to lampooning. If Mohammed can’t tollerate being lampooned, then maybe he was not so great after all, right?.

        Mr or Ms Tmka,
        liars may lie all the time, but they wont fool everyone.. and even if they do for a while, it cant last forever.
        I’m not here to convince you, or to learn about my religion from you.

        The thing is that i found the information here very wrong, so i said so. If you want to learn the truth, i believe youll have to work hard on it.

          Dear Hind:
          Have you read Honor Killing by Daniel Akbari. He is a mujtahid capable of performing ijtihad. You know that this means he has advanced education and training in Shariah and is qualified as an Islamic jurist (attorney). He is classified as a Number One Attorney and certified to appear before the Supreme (Shariah) Court of Iran. He covers the same issues Dr. Warner discusses and they are in agreement. He also indicates that Muslims who pretend that Islam considers and treats non-Muslims the same as Muslims are simply lying or ignorant about their own religion. Quranic verses and ahadith advocating kindness compassion towards others are exclusively meant to be applied to other Muslims, not the koffar (unbelievers).

          • Hind

            Dear Veritas Now,
            I cannot say i read this book or even heard of the author. and I’m afraid my knowledge of the Shia laws and ways are not to be counted on. But basically, in social matters as marriage or inheritance, “koffar” are not treated equal to muslims! On the other hand, you might find that some verses from the Quraan state that its not forbidden on muslims who want to marry virtuous non-muslim ladies to do so, if the lady is Christian or Jew ( a believer).

            you wrote he agrees on : “Quranic verses and ahadith advocating kindness compassion towards others are exclusively meant to be applied to other Muslims, not the koffar ”
            and I honestly don’t know what kind of learning he got if he has no knowledge of the prophet’s life .. since childhood I (like many others) was brought up on stories about the prophet Mohammad’s kindness towards even those who ill treated him, like his neighbour in Makkah before going to alMadinah. His kindness towards non believers also shows in the hadith when he order muslims to treat P.O.W. kindly. And in “Sahih al-Bukhari” , there is a touching story about how the prophet himself looked for clothes to put on one of the prisoners of “Bader” battle (who was a non believer).

            And on the matter of “Quranic verses advocating kindness compassion towards others are exclusively meant to be applied to other Muslims” I believe that any one who could read Quraan will know how false this claim is. there is no room for guessing. the language of Quraan is precise when it speaks of :Muslims, ahl al-kitab, moshrikeen or koffar.

            In Quraan God says: “wa ma arslnak illa rahmatan lil alameen” (al-anbiaa verses no.107) which means: we (God) sent you (the prophet Mohammad) only as compassion to the world”

    Bill.. fantastic video, though could have done better with a tad of editing. But the concepts were lucidly explained. Thanks.

    I’m taking the liberty to reproduce one more horror inflicted on Hindus from the sordid annals of Mughal history in my country…

    the year 1565,, place Sothern Bhaarath… ps C what Jehaadis did to a great peaceful civilization.
    After three days, Muslim troops entered the city of Vijaynagara (1565). There was no one to stop them.. They looted, plundered and destroyed the city. Men, women and children were killed without any mercy. Shops, temples and houses were burnt and the sacred Hindu idols were destroyed. This destructive episode continued for six months relentlessly. The havoc was complete. The scenes showed the magnitude of hatred Muslims had for Hindus. Robert Sewell [8] in his book “The Forgotten empire” concludes thus – With fire and sword, with crow bars and axes, they carried on day after day their work of destruction. Never perhaps in the history of the World has such havoc been wrought, and wrought so suddenly, on so splendid a city, teeming with a wealthy and industrious population in the full plenitude of prosperity one day, and on the next seized, pillaged and reduced to ruins, and scenes of savage massacre and horrors begging description. The looting is supposed to have gone on for six months, after which the sultans fired the city. The heat from the burning of the city is supposed to have been so intense that it left cracks in the granite hills on its periphery. Ramaraya’s skull was taken by Nizam Shah to Ahmednagar and was fitted to the spout of a drain[citation needed]that opened out of the fort. This grotesque gargoyle bearing the fallen Hindu king’s skull was seen for several years after the event. Robert Sewell (1845–1925)[citation needed] worked in the civil service of the Madras Presidency during the period of colonial rule in India.[1] He was Keeper of the Madras Record Office[2] and was tasked with responsibility for documenting ancient inscriptions and remains in the region,

    ”After capturing the old King Rama Raya, Adil Shah ordered him to say that there is no other God other than Allah. But the Hindu King refused and said Narayana Krishna Bhagavanta… The beastly Jehaadi immediately slit the old King’s throat and beheaded him screaming Allah O Akbar and then paraded the severed head throughout the kingdom. Later he used the skull as a spout for sewage effluence from his fort. This was the true nature of the Jehaadi beast called Adil Shah

    • Hind

      Dear RCH

      if u have ever heard of the siege of Baghdad (1258) , you would know that what you describe here as “the horrors inflicted on Hindus” has nothing to do with jehad or muslims. It was the Mughal.

      And who ever read this but doesnt know about it , should look it up instead of taking it from me or anyone here.. after all any one could be using ketman or tugiah however they spell it or call it.

      • RCH

        But these mad barbaric Mughals did it in the name of Islam.. Ps do not sugar coat and do taqiyya. U people are the greatest threat to world peace today and even in the times of old. Aren’t U ashamed to constantly defend atrocity after atrocity after atrocity committed in the name of Allah. SHAME ON U from the bottom of my heart. I have always held that other then twin interrelated threats of Global Warming and Climate Change, Jehaadi Islamic terror is the 3rd threat that has the potential to completely wipe out humanity as we see it today.

  5. Hind

    I have looked up the book this video is quoting from, with no success. One would think i ought to read it (at least know about it) if it was intended to be read by muslims.

    It would help if the name of the author was shown.

    The Islamic invasions of Europe and the barbaric Mughal Islamic invasions of Bhaarth were the PRECISE reason for the retardation of scientific progress in these lands. When a whole set of populace is terrorized on a daily basis by fiendish invaders, how the hell can they concentrate on knowledge and scientific advancement? Self preservation then becomes the key. Luckily Europe thwarted these intolerant savages and pushed them back and ushered in relative peace, where its populace could go back to its retinue of economic activity and scientific progress. Result: The Industrial revolution, which propelled Europe to the top of the world and helped them in their conquest of colonies the world over. As for Bhaarath, the brutal stranglehold of the Islamic Mughal invaders, their wanton destruction of temples and Universities like Nalanda and even giant cultural centres like Vijayanagara, took a sordid toll in the scientific temperament of the land. Self preservation from the marauding beasts again became the primary issue. In a way the British colonial rule, which started in 1747 but an end to this Islamic tyranny because to some extent the Hindus got some breathing space as the British were not hell-bent on Christianizing the land by violence as the beastly Islamic Mughals. Even though Bhaarath was still a colony, scientific enquiry in its land started again and that is why we had the likes of Sir CV Raman and Jagadish Chandra Bose in the colonial era. At least the British were not anti-knowledge. In a way, the rise of European colonialism all over the world was a blessing in disguise for humanity as it put a huge spanner in the expansion of Islam in the free world. However, post colonialism, the ugly head of Jehaadi Islamic expansion has started to raise its intolerant head again all over the world and that is why we see this non-stop terror all over the world. Had it not been for the Industrial revolution and the global domination of Christian Europe for close to 2 centuries, one shudders to think what would have happened as there was no other force to contain Islam other than the brute force of advanced technology. Alas, the free world today is increasingly looking to lose that technological edge too…
    (These observations of mine are based on Bill’s brilliant theory of the real cause of Europe’s dark ages. In this light, it is logical to apply the same to India… Thanks Bill.. Humans In the future will surely be indebted to U for ur brilliant historical paradigm shifting piece of work in this regard)

  7. RCH

    To add further Bill.. I once again fear (logically) that scientific progress is once again going to pay a heavy price due to the current rise of Jehaadi activities all over the world and this in fact is only going to increase with time. Will there be a start of a global dark age?? Because once again the free world will expend itself in self-preservation from barbaric Jehaadi beasts and would have very less resources left over for science and technology.

  8. RCH

    In this light, it is imperative that the free world continues to maintain the edge in technology and modern weaponry, else we might as well write its epitaph now.

  9. RCH

    Bill, I have one more observation which ties neatly into your theory of the dark ages… my observation as to why the Islamic philosophy is retrograde to progress, productivity, and the economy.. Ps read on..

    Islam and Muslims are not very tax friendly as the Koran prohibits giving money to a Khafir civilian Govt, What is encouraged in the Koran is Zakat contribution to the mosque and this contribution, after funding for maintenance and upkeep of the Imams, unfortunately goes for Jehaad against non-Muslims. That is why Islamic countries like Pak and Bangla are bankrupt. A very weak tax base as most Muslims refuse to pay tax and consequently their Govts have very little money left over for infrastructure development and nation building. Talk about how an entire national priority goes wrong. In the so called oil rich Gulf Islamic nations, again there is no tax, but fortunately for them there is the surplus revenue from oil which helps to fund nation building. But that will last only as long as the oil lasts and once the oil is exhausted, these Gulf Islamic nations will run themselves down to bankruptcy and become the usual dens of terror. And then we have Islamic nations like Malaysia, which are again relatively prosperous. Again here, if we do look closely, most of the nation building is done by the hardworking tax contributing non-Muslim Chinese and Tamils. The Malays are famous for their laziness and many of them get lots of subsidies from the Islamic Malaysian Govt on the Bhumiputra scheme. So in this case, as well as in Bhaarath which has the biggest Muslim population in the world, it is seen that Muslims need the purchasing power and tax base of non-Muslims to live in apparent prosperity, else they would need something like oil which they can lazily dig out and sell. And then there is also the retrograde system of Islamic banking in Islamic countries which usher nothing but financial ruin in the long run. There is unfortunately no logical and scientific approach to tackle economical problems as the Koran is held as the model or everything. Here in Bhaarath, most Muslims own small businesses like shops which run entirely on cash and which do not believe in paying taxes and which entirely runs on the purchasing power of Hindus. And in almost all nations where they live, they contribute absolutely NOTHING to nation building. They also do not take up occupations like agriculture that require hard work and instead most of them are involved in the business of lena dena.. taking things from here and giving it there and making money in the middle. And consequently in this lena-dena business. many of them cross legal limits. Is it any surprise, that some of the top smugglers and bootleggers in the world are Muslims?? Smuggling is after all an illegal form of lena-dena. Moreover, the tendency to overbreed without paying any attention to the available resources also contributes to the acceleration of the economic ruin. One could always argue that Islamic societies have a healthy surplus base of young productive people in their populations unlike in the West where an aging population and a declining populations are posing severe future challenges to their economies . But what use is the youth that is brainwashed and lazy and involves only in Jehaad and not in any nation building. There are other retrograde economic policies like Islamic banking that also endangers the economy in the long run. The Islamic system only goes to enrich the coffers of the Imams making them not only powerful politically, but also extremely strong from a financial angle. Besides all their pernicious effects on the economic scene, there is always an atmosphere of social tension and unrest and riots which also very badly affects the progress of the nation and this is entirely a consequence of the increasing financial clout of the mullahs. And to top this, none of the Islamic leaders speak anything about progress and jobs and confine themselves to sectarian politics of fear and hate. And all this in total, makes the Islamic philosophy the complete antithesis of modern economic and scientific progress. These slovenly parasitic habits have already been espoused by Churchill way back in 1920. I’m willing to openly debate any Muslim that is willing to challenge me on these points. It is high time that global leaders openly debate on this topic without bothering about political correctness, else future generations will pay a heavy price in terms of global resources as well as global security.

    • AtWar

      @RCH – I’ve enjoyed reading your comments here and have learned a thing or two.

      My question for you: after living with centuries of Islamic aggression, why do you suppose that the people of India have not been able to identify the source of their problem today?

      • RCH

        Thanks for ur comments. To answer ur Q as to why the people of Bhaarath (India) have not been able to identify the source of the problem is that MOST HINDUS DO NOT WANT TO IDENTIFY THE problem in spite of being aware of the stark evidence that faces them in this regard. That is also because we have been CURSED by dhimmi politicians who prostitute themselves for the bloc votes of Muslims. I hope U are familiar with the concept of bloc-votes by Muslims. If not, let me take the liberty to speak to U about it. U see when Muslims live in free democracies as in the west, they almost always form slovenly impoverished ghettos. But these same impoverished ghettos form powerful voting blocs for aspiring politicians, esp the crony types who are ready to do/compromise anything in order to get elected. How this happens? If U live in the West, U know that during election time, the local candidate visits each and every home in his/her constituency and convince each and every one about his electoral credentials. But in a free democracy, opinions vary a lot and even in a single home the votes get split over different candidates as each and every single voter in that house makes up his/her own mind as to whom to vote. But this is not the case with Muslims. They will vote en-mass for the candidate whichever their local Mulla recommends. So the electoral candidate has to go straight to the local mosque and sit at the feet of the Mullah as a lap-dog during their Friday Jumma prayers and become a complete dhimmi. Once the Mulla gets convinced that the candidate’s dhimmitude is for real, he will issue an electoral fatwa from his pulpit in the mosque urging his faithfuls to vote for the candidate. And come election time. ALL MUSLIMS in that constituency, right from grandparent to grandchild will vote in COMPLETE UNISON for this dhimmi candidate. And these bloc votes are extremely powerful and allow Muslims to PUNCH ABOVE THEIR WEIGHT in dictating the politics and policies of the land. These bloc votes are what I term as ELECTORAL MARIJUANA….. very easy to deploy and get to power as long as the politician compromises and becomes a dhimmi. But like any drug, the user and more importantly. the people connected to him pay a heavy price in the long run. It is akin to making a pact with the devil.. Once the dhimmi candidate gets elected, he HAS TO BE at the constant beckoning and call of the Mullah who helped him to get his bloc votes. He has to criticize and attack strongly anyone that even makes a statement remotely critical of Islaam and Muslims. He has to make favorable statements on Muslims who are in jail or under the radar regarding Jehaadi terror activities. He has to CONSTANTLY speak against those politicians from opposition as well as his party that believe in taking strong action against Jehaadi terror and has to constantly apologize for Jehaadi terror acts. He should also put his entire political weight in the approval of construction of huge new mosques on lands which are in legal dispute. And the local Mulla does not give a damn about creating jobs, technology, progress etc etc. All he cares about is the advancement of Islaam and his own political and financial fortunes. This is how Islaam effectively muscles into the political fortunes of a land EVEN WHEN IT IS IN A MINORITY and the electoral-marijuana addicted dhimmi politicians become UNWILLING to give up their habit even in the face of deadly danger for the security of the entire nation. This behavior is so typical of drug addicts who can never give up their habit even though they know that it is ruining them and their families. In my country, such unscrupulous muslim vote addicted dhimmi politicians abound and they are unwilling to give up this poisonous shortcut to power. That is why this lethal inaction that U see reg my country. UNFORTUNATELY, this disease is now creeping up in the west too and that is why U see SHAMELESS leaders like Cameron and other leaders like Hollande REFUSING to squarely address this grave problem. Hope this made it clear to U.

  10. RCH

    Bill, this was a brilliant comment made by one Mr. Max from Germany on
    I’m taking the liberty to reproduce it here as I strongly believe that this is an
    EYE-OPENER and STRONGLY ties with what U have got to say reg the Jehaad of Words…

    Abdallah Bulgasem Zehaf-Bibeau, the drug addict turned Jihadist spawned by the mating of a Canadian immigration official and a Libyan Muslim Jihadist, just wanted peace.

He told a co-worker, There can’t be world peace until there’s only Muslims. Then he tried to usher in peace, the Islamic way, by opening fire near the Canadian parliament.

 Meanwhile in Israel a reporter interviewing Arab Muslim settlers in Jerusalem found that they too wanted peace. On their terms. Yes we want peace, one of them said, but peace means no Jews. When negotiating peace with other cultures it’s a good idea to make sure that the words you are using mean the same thing. Most Muslims and Westerners want peace. But to Westerners peace means co-existence. To Muslims, peace means the end of your existence. Ideas carry heavy cultural baggage. . The Jihad is at the heart of Islam. To question the holy war is to also question the faith. When war is religion then peace through setting aside war is heresy. 

The Western idea of peace is a wholly alien one to Islam. In Islam, peace does not come from men transcending their differences, but from destroying men who think and live differently.

The Islamic idea of peace however affirms a structure and separation based on the Koran. It believes that there will be peace when everyone is forced to live within the strictures of Islam.

Islam has a history of over a thousand years of continuously dehumanizing non-Muslims and identifying peace and their enslavement as one and the same. It is impossible to live in peace with Muslims who think that there can be no peace as long as non-Muslims continue to live independent lives. 

In the Muslim worldview, war happens because non-Muslims exist. War is caused by the infidel, the disbeliever and the Muslim hypocrite who does not truly commit to the practice of Islam. Islam seeks a world without conflict by killing anyone who might disagree with its totalitarian ideology. 

Proposing the peace of co-existence to an ideology to which peace means its own supremacy is a foolish and deranged act. (Reproduced from comment made by Max from Germany)

    Great work here, and something I definitely want to share. Before I do, though, please edit this by adding some text to introduce Clare when she comes on screen, like you did for the other speakers. Because I first was introduced to this video on FB, there wasn’t any wording under the video like there is when it is seen here, or strictly on a YouTube page; I had to wait until the end credits to find out who she was. I don’t want to do that to my family when I share it on FB. Thanks.
