The true nature of Islam is revealed in its sacred texts and its history. But, there is another Islam–Official Islam–that has been revealed by Obama in Cairo. He made official what the media, politicians (including Bush) and the universities have pushed since 9/11.
Here are the major points of Official Islam:
· Islam is a religion similar to Christianity and Judaism. They all worship the same god.
· Good Muslims prove that Islam is good
· There are no jihadists, just extremists
· Islam must be accommodated in as many ways as possible
· One of the proofs of Islam’s greatness is the Islamic Golden Age, humanity’s best days
· Violence by Muslims is due to their being poor and abused
· Islam gave the West its basis for our intellectual world
· The Crusades were a great evil by Christians
· There are moderate Muslims and a few extremist Muslims
· “Extremists” cause the violence
· Islam is found in the Koran (never discuss Mohammed)
· The “bad stuff” in the Koran is only due to its interpretation
· Good Muslims will reform the “extremists”
· Islam is the religion of tolerance
· Islam has a Golden Rule
· Islam is the religion of freedom and justice
But the official version of Islam is a *Big Lie. The fact that the Official Islam does not agree with the Koran, Sira and Hadith is of no importance, since it is not based upon them. Official Islam is based upon the propaganda of the Muslim Brotherhood. Not one line of the Official Islam is totally true and many of the points are complete fabrications.
At best, some assertions are partially true. A half-truth is a lie. When you testify in our courts you have to swear an oath: I swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Official Islam is not only made up of half-truths, but it also has points that contain no truth, e.g. Islam is the religion of tolerance, so it contains both half-truths and total lies. There is not a single statement in it that it completely true. It is a Big Lie.
Anyone who does not agree with these points is labeled a bigot and will be condemned by all of the official non-bigots, those who believe the Big Lie. The oddest thing is that they make moral judgments about those who do not believe. They say that if you don’t believe in the Big Lie, you are a bigoted Islamophobe.
Official Islam cannot be proven and is delivered by “authorities.” It is based upon authoritarian thinking–believe it because those who have more power that you say it is true. We must use truth and critical/scientific thinking to destroy the Big Lie of Official Islam. Official Islam is the mind of denial and delusion. As long as you believe Official Islam, you will never learn about the Islam found in the Koran, Sira and Hadith–the true Islam.
* BIG LIE: Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, MA, 1971, pgs. 231, 232.
All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.
