Ideology: Ideas; Moderate

Reader comment on item: An Arab Prince Denounces Islamism

Submitted by Dajjal (United States), Dec 11, 2014 at 22:17

The ideology is Islam: normative, off the shelf Islam as preached and practiced by Moe and the four rightly guided caliphs.

The ideas: "only Allah has the right to be worshiped", "only Allah has the right to rule", "disbelief must be removed by death or Islam".

The terms: "fight them until", "kill them wherever you find them" "to make it superior", "when Allah and his Messenger have decided a matter".

Al-Baqarah 2.85 ...Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. ...

So much for moderates & moderation: malignant maundering malarkey.

Surah Al-An'nam 6.115 ...None can change His Words...

Surah Ar-Rum 30.30 ...No change let there be in Khalq­illâh (i.e. the Religion of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not....

Sahih Bukhari 9.88.174 ...' Then I will say, 'Far removed (from mercy), far removed (from mercy), those who changed (the religion) after me! " ...

So much for reform: it is expressly forbidden.

Kindly prove me wrong.

Submitting....
