"Reformation" of Islam is impossible due to close adherence to [their] scripture.

"Islam neither can be changed nor can be wiped out of the pages of the world's history or from the future. Islam would be there to challenge all evil forces and Satan's partners.

I must exhort once again....Muslims would never put their guns down, never stop to stare into the eyes of the enemy and would never end their war against those who brought suffering to Muslims since the last century.

Better understand it as quickly as you can!!!"

LISTEN UP ALL NON-MUSLIMS!!! THIS IS THE TRUE FACE OF ISLAM!!!

THE GOAL OF EVERY MUSLIM IS THE COMPLETE AND TOTAL REPLACEMENT OF EVERY BELIEF (AND NON-BELIEF) SYSTEM WITH THE ADHERENCE OF SUBMISSION TO ALLAH.

SOME WILL PRESCRIBE MILITANT ACTION AS OUR ‘FRIEND' MANSOOR.

OTHERS (SO-CALLED MODERATES) WILL ‘PLAY' THE INOSCENT BY-STANDER WHILE THEIR FRIEND MANSOOR AND HIS BROTHERS-IN-ARMS DO THE DIRTY WORK.

Better understand it as quickly as you can!!!

THE QUICKER WE IDENTIY THE TRUE ENEMY – THE QUICKER WE WILL BE ABLE TO ERADICATE IT.

Islam neither can be changed nor can be wiped out of the pages of the world's history

I AGREE WHOLE-HEARTED – THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR NAZISM AND COMMUNISM.

FRIENDS AND COUNTRYMEN, WE CANNOT AFFORD

"to stare into the eyes of the enemy"

NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT THE TASK MAY SEEM

WE MUST SIMPLY BE WILLING TO

‘PULL THE TRIGGER'!!!

THEY WILL NOT STOP, OF THEIR OWN ACCORD, FOR ISLAM MANDATES THEY CONTINUE UNTIL ‘ALL RELIGION (AND NON-RELIGION) IS FOR ALLAH'.

Allow me to quote one great American:

"This is no time for ceremony. The questing before [US] is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility, which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings … Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt … In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! … Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? … The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. … The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave … It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!

I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
