The Enemy of Islam

Reader comment on item: Iran's Final Solution Plan

Submitted by John Bastile (Malaysia), Nov 2, 2005 at 01:36

May the peace of Islam be unto the muslims.

Allow me to share a verse from the muslims' holy book – the quran. "Quran's Surah 5.72 says "Christians will be burned in the Fire.".

Before "we" act upon the message of Iran's president, we must understand why he made a statement – short of declaring war on Israel.

There are plausible reasons – such as a diversion from the local politics, seeking appeasement money from the West (more aid will come to Iran's way when you're the child with special attention). I'd reckon, North Korea will start to throw tantrum again – I mean, she's becoming a neglected child especially with so many spoilt muslims children around. It may be a strategy to increase the bargaining power for their on-going nuclear disarmament discussions. Perhaps, some aid money from the wahabbist Arabs

One reason that may stand the test of time, substantiated with history, is that Islam needs enemies. The Quran is replete with hate-messages. The dark god that the muslims worship is obsessed with hell-fire and eternal damnation for his enemies.

I refer to my recent weblog with a muslim. He concurred with me that the muslims believe in a god that willfully create humans, pre-destine them to either become muslims or infidels, purposely lead the infidels astray, veil their eyes and ears away from the "truth", order the muslims to convert or kill the infidels (wherever ye may find them), then send the infidels to eternal hell-fire. The muslims that kill will have their rewards in paradise. A paradise with perpetual virgins. No mention of any commune with their god.

If Islam has no enemies, their Quran will be useless. What will the mullahs preach? What verse will they use in their sermons? The dark god that they worship talks nothing of love for mankind, only hell-fire for his enemies. The dark god that they worship calls for blood. If they shed non-muslims' blood, they will shed their own. There are some peaceful verses in the Quran but they concern only of muslim brotherhood (never about universal mankind). Too few to sustain a peaceful religion. There are many more verses to sustain wars.

With the surrendering of the Gaza strip to the Palestinians, the muslim world is losing the reason d'etre for their violence hatred against Israel and the West. With terrorists rushing into the Gaza strip and start shooting rockets from there, Israel will now be seen as defending their land instead on encroaching on other. Therefore, the Iranian president must act swiftly to start something fresh with Israel.

The only way for Islam to co-exist with the rest of the world is when one party is significantly dominant than the other. For it has, the past 1400 years.
