Ticking Timebombs (Sudden Jihad)

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)

Submitted by Susan Petre (United States), Mar 14, 2006 at 10:38

Your article about "Sudden Jihad" was long overdue. This phenonenon is something we must all be concerned about because it seems to occur on a regular basis.

We have absolutely no way of knowing to what extent individual Muslims embrace the jihad doctrine, or when they will pick up a weapon, strap on a bomb, or use unconventional methods to wreak mass casualties and destruction. The Qur'an is replete with exhortations calling Muslims to jihad, and jihad is considered every able-bodied Muslim's solemn duty. If they cannot participate in holy war, they are expected to support it financially or in any way they can.

It is also the duty of Muslims to spread Islam and they believe Islam will eventually choke out all other religions and the world will be ruled by a Caliphate. Imams and mullahs in the U.S. and Europe have published guidelines for Muslims on how to hasten the downfall of decadent Western societies and governments so the "rightful rulers of the world", Muslims, can take over and impose Shariah. Those who refuse to accept Islam will be subjugated as dhimmis. Muslims believe that they are inherently superior to non-Muslims and are forbidden to befriend them. How can we trust people who adhere to this xenophobic, triumphalist doctrine of superiority, who have no respect or tolerance for plurality, individual freedoms, and human rights?

One cannot fully grasp the bellicose, violent, and imperialistic nature of Islam without some knowledge of Islam's bloody history of conquest, genocide, and iconoclasm. Islamic doctrine is immutable, "the final word of God for all men, for all time," and reform is unlikely.

The Qur'an contains 403 verses engendering religious intolerance, 529 verses exhorting injustice, 331 verses espousing cruely and violence, 51 verses exhibiting Islam's intrinsic disrespect and mistreatment of women, and only 62 verses related to morality and values. The verses that do not contain blatant hatred for non-Muslims generally refer only to how Muslims treat other Muslims. Disbelievers, non-Muslims, are only treated with kindness and respect for the purpose of "warding off evil" and to win them over to Islam. Genuine friendships between non-Muslims and Muslims are forbidden.

.Wife beating is divinely approved, (4:34). In verse 22:15, Allah says that those who don't want Mohammad to succeed in his mission in the world (i.e., to conquer all religions, destroy polytheism, vanquish disbelief) and in the hereafter should go hang themselves. There are dozens upon dozens of vicious insults against non-Muslims (e.g., "worst beasts in Allah's sight", evil, wicked, perverse, ignorant, fools, liars, etc.). The Koran says to never befriend the disbelievers. Over 250 separate verses condemn all non-Muslims, for all time, to hell fire/eternal torture. Christians and Jews are called "disbelievers" (9:32, 5:17) and are not protected but must be put to the sword unless they convert to Islam or accept dhimmi status (9:29-9:35).

How is it possible for Muslims to co-exist peacefully with non-Muslims? It my opinion, it is not possible. While Muslims are a tiny minority of a population, they will quietly live in their secluded enclaves, separated from the immoral, decadent infidels they despise. They will exploit our many freedoms and opportunities to empower themselves and when there are enough of them, they will attempt to impose their ideals on us, violently if necessary. Muslims are ticking timebombs.
