Reader comment on item: Islamic London: "Run, Hide, Tell"
in response to reader comment: Amin Refaat's suggestion is definitely impractical and probably incorrect

Dear Prashant,

Thank you very much for your detailed comments. I'll try to respond to each of your concerns in brief:

1. Popular Islam really needs reform there is no doubt about that. Current Muslims are following a disfigured religion. Implemented few years after the death of Mohammed by Muawiya Ibn Abi Sufian in order to rule in a monarchy way and to profit of invading other countries in the name of Islam. After him rulers followed his ways and started producing a false Islam to support their ways and to silence any opposition. This Frankenstein Islam later became the foundation of the religion and unfortunately people believed in it and followed it blindly till now.

2. The Mohammed specific verses are clear in the Quran but the so called "Elder Scholars" managed to fabricate rules they said told by Mohammed to justify using those verses after his death.
You have to keep in mind that Arab Tribes' main source of income was raiding each other and looting their possession and enslaving their women and children. After Mohammed died those tribes united and started invading other countries in the name of Islam for economic reasons only.

3. There is noting in real Islam about rules against non Muslims. Those are fabrications. They made Islam the religion of hate and violence while it is the religion of peace and coexistence.

4. Regarding Mohammed attacking caravans, you need to examine your sources because that didn't happen as the way you described it. Mohammed and his companions used to meet their attackers far away from Medina to protect it and its people from the horrors of war. In one time when the coalition of their enemies was too big to confront in the desert so they stayed in Median and fortified it by digging a wide ditch around the city. It was called the Coalition Invasion.

5. I don't know why you do not like the "Self Defense Policy"!! It is the most civilized way which is now implemented by all countries. In America they have Department of Defense.

6. Islam has tow folds: the first is the relationship between the person and God and those are the so called 5 pillars of Islam: Testimony, 5 daily prayers, paying arms, fasting Ramadan and Pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime. As you see they are all deeds to gain the love of the Lord and they are nobody else's business.

The other pillars of Islam are being justfull, being charitable, being close to your kin and to avoid bad deeds, adultery and not to transgress against others. This are the main social rules of Islam made to make the Muslim peaceful and safe to live with. This very important part of Islam is being ignored because it defies the Jihady approach.
Most of the rules applied in the so called Muslim countries are fabrications to use religion to control the masses. And as you can see, the result is that all Muslim countries no matter how rich are retarded filled with poverty, chaos, injustice, bribery, discrimination and a lot of other social crimes.

And finally, there is nothing in real Islam saying that the country must be Muslim. Islam only applies to individuals, Islamic countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are a big lie, they are using Islam to manipulate the people and to advance their aggressive agendas.
