Case 2: The Kafir
There is a second division that overwhelms the reader of the historical Koran. A majority of the text concerns the Kafir (unbeliever). It is not about being a Muslim, but about the Kafir. A note: most Koran translations use the word “unbeliever” instead of Kafir, but Kafir is the actual Arabic word.
This term is so important and so unknown that the meaning of Kafir must be defined. The original meaning of the word is one who covers or conceals the known truth. A Kafir knows that the Koran is true, but denies it. The Koran says that the Kafir may be deceived, plotted against, hated, enslaved, mocked, tortured and worse. The word is usually translated as “unbeliever” but this translation is wrong. The word “unbeliever” is logically and emotionally neutral, whereas, Kafir is the most abusive, prejudiced and hateful word in any language.
There are many religious names for Kafirs: polytheists, idolaters, People of the Book (Christians and Jews), atheists, agnostics, and pagans. Kafir covers them all, because no matter what the religious name is, they can all be treated the same. What Mohammed said and did to polytheists can be done to any other category of Kafir.
Islam devotes a great amount of energy to the Kafir. Not only is the majority (64%) of the Koran devoted to the Kafir, but also nearly all of the Sira (81%) deals with Mohammed’s struggle with them. The Hadith (Traditions) devotes 32% of the text to Kafirs.

With good reason, the Koran has been called ‘a troop motivator’, since so much of it (64%) is composed of hate-filled messages that exhort and command Moslems to bring the kafirs under the political domination of Moslems.
Mohammed’s official biography is the ‘Sira’. It is astounding that 81% of it is devoted to describing Mohammed’s techniques for suppressing the freedom and human rights of kafirs.
When Moslems are told that Mohammed is the perfect man, they understand that they must imitate his supposed perfection by repressing women and ‘the other’.
Thanks for your good work Bill. Will
you please name the surahs that
allow the believer to craft his put- down actions upon the kafir….it will help to be able to answer ugly arrogant and “intolerant” Islamics who accuse the rest of the world when they want to have their extreme perfidity and infantile/ arrested adolescent pseudo
superiority slavishy acquiesced to.
A year ago I had felt an overdue
saturation of how much more I was going to tolerate…..so I started tracking them and studying them. You have answered a lot of what needs to be known.. Your work is a great blessings, and you are super
hero to those seeking truth.
