Mr Rabbani said:

As for the 18th century Egyptian and Van Gogh's murder, these are, again, actions of small groups of people for which you are indicting the whole of Islam.

I have to disagree. Such actions are more representative of real Islam on 2 levels. The Quranic teaching, and the Prophetic example. (Sunnah)

Whenever Mohammed encountered resistance, opposition, he dealt with it militarily/violently. He engaged in political Assassination (Ka'b Bin al Ashraf to name but one) and Genocide (Banu Qurayza) Torture and bodily mutilation (Camel thieves) and unbridled sexual lust (Saffiya wife of newly tortured and decapitated Kanana chief of Banu Al nadi Jews at Khaibar) He desired her after her BEAUTY was reported to him. How Muslims can sanitize this event where she and her cousin were brought past the bloodsoaked ground and decapitated corpse of her husband by Bilal, to Mohammed as anything other than an example of the worst inhuman treatment of fellow human beings comparable to the worst atrocities of the Nazi's toward Jews, is beyond my comprehension.

Mohammed CURSED Christians and Jews on his deathbed. (Bukhari volume 4, book 56, number 660)

The Quran CURSES Christians in surah 9:30 "Allahs curse be on them, they are deluded, away from truth"

Mohammed and his Generals PLANNED INVASIONS.

Bukhari vol 4 book 53 number 386

Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans. When Al-Hurmuzan embraced Islam, 'Umar said to him. "I would like to consult you regarding these countries which I intend to invade."Further down it says: (Al Mughara speaking, a Soldier/General sent by Umar, close companion of Mohammed)

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."

So, here we see the planned aggression of the Muslims AND its justification based on their understanding of the Quranic verses as 'territorially expansionist". Not only this, but we see the beginnings of the homicide bomber in embryo form -"luxury" in the afterlife.

So, what we in the West are politely terming 'terrorism' in reality we mean ISLAM and MUSLIMS and not just the radical kind, we mean those who are true Muslims. It may be that this is coincidently the radicals, but let us be under no illusions that they are some kind of political abberation of true Islam, they ARE the true Muslims.

SO, we must gird up out loins, and be prepared to take on the challenge. We must encourage the 'Emperor' (Romans13) to do his duty, and we must do ours. Christian or not, if the State rightly calls on us to defend justice and freedom, we must do it as unto God. Just as we resisted Hitler and Tojo, we must not only resist, but bring actively down totally the Islamic threat, and apply their own laws to them. The Jizya or they may choose to convert.

Mohammed attacked whenever he received intelligence to the effect that plots were being made against him. This we are also doing, and justly so. We are surrounded by plots. But we must go further, if there are no Muslmis, there will be no threat. So, we should seek to be annointed in the Spirit of God, and proclaim Christ, repentance and forgiveness to those who are citizens, and deny access to those who seek to become citizens, save they deny mohammed and Islam.

Our goal must be to stop, but not to stomp or trample. Our task must be to advance freedom and justice, not to acquire territory as the Muslims did. Let us be as God intended us to be, free, just and honest and may we promote these values in His mighty name even to the end of the age.
