Islam and Terrorism

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Alec (United States), Jan 31, 2004 at 09:34

Must read book called "Islam and Terrorism" by Mark A. Gabriel, a Muslim who has converted to Christianity.... his own father tried to kill him for trying to leave Islam. This book was very eye opening. The author grew up in Egypt and by the age of 12 memorized the Koran. He became a professor at the top Islamic University in Cairo. This book explains why the Muslims hate and want to destroy the west and the verses from the Koran that tell them to.

This book should be read by all Americans to understand where this hatred comes from. It's from the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad... called the Koran.

It appears that Muslims suffer the most from these radical teachings of Islam. There are 150 million Muslims that believe the Koran and want to attack Americans. The main reason appears to be that Muslims are guaranteed to get to heaven through Jihad, by killing in the name of Allah of the non-believers.

Another thing I've learned is that Muhammad teaches his followers to deceive the enemy through lies and trickery. Don't fall for the religion of peace argument. It is a religion of war, deceit and murder if you don't follow the rules.

Another book by the author explains why Israel is a holy place to Muslims. It turns out that Muhammad had a dream about flying on a horse to Israel and at the site of the holy temple in Jerusalem he went up to heaven. There he talked Allah into reducing the number of times to pray per day from 50 to 5. Two years after he died a Mosque was built there where, the Jewish temple stood.
