Pentagon is waking up to the reality, but...

Reader comment on item: The Pentagon Looks at the Koran

Submitted by Mohan (India), Nov 1, 2006 at 11:54

...I am delighted to know that Pentagon is waking up to the reality. However, nothing short of wiping out Islam is required to eliminate Islamic suicide bombing and terrorism. Quran and Hadith are full of references where it has been mentioned that Islam must prevail over all other religions; that the world belongs to Allah and Allah wants Islam to rule the world; that unbelievers must be made either to pay taxes or should be converted to Islam or be killed; that unbelievers would be put to eternal fire in hell etc. To give a few examples:

Quran

8.39. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah does see all that they do.

9.29. Fight those who believe neither in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

48.28. It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religions: and enough is Allah for a Witness.

48.29. Muhammad is the apostle of Allah and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other.

66.9. O Prophet! Strive hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, - an evil refuge (indeed).

Hadith --

1:125 -- A man came to the Prophet and asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What kind of fighting is in Allah's cause? (I ask this), for some of us fight because of being enraged and angry and some for the sake of his pride and haughtiness." The Prophet raised his head (as the questioner was standing) and said, "He who fights so that Allah's Word (Islam) should be superior, then he fights in Allah's cause."

1:387 -- Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' …..

Inspired by this violent ideology, throughout history, Muslims, wherever they could, have been killing, plundering and subjugating unbelievers and destroying their places of worship. Such a violent ideology has no place in a civilized, secular and democratic society.

Actually, Muhammad invented this story of Allah, hell, heaven etc to justify his cravings for plundering wealth and women of others. He openly justified this as war booty. Just read the following verses of Quran and Hadith –

Quran - 8.41. And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah, - and to the Messenger ….

Hadith 4:351 - Allah's Apostle said, "Booty has been made legal for me."

Hadith 4:382 -- In our holy battles, we used to get honey and grapes, as war booty, which we would eat and would not store.

As plundering required a gang of looters, Muhammad repeatedly emphasized importance of jihad. He assured jihadists heaven, if they die in the cause of Allah. Instigating to fight in the name of Allah -- an imagined superpower for "establishing His rule in the world" was a perfect excuse for taxing or looting unbelievers or killing them if they resisted.

Thus, terrorism is an essential core part of Islam itself. There is nothing like moderate Islam. A so-called moderate Muslim is one who knows nothing about his own religion. He simply wants to be modern or wants to earn respect from followers of other peaceful religions (Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism etc) by saying that Islam is also a very peaceful religion.

Thus, the only way to get rid of Islamic terrorism is to get rid of Islam itself. How can this be done?

First, the world must make a sincere attempt to persuade Muslims to quit Islam. A massive global campaign through electronic and print media, books, speeches etc should be launched to expose the inherent irrationality, violence and intolerance of Islam. Full security, even financial support, should be provided to those who quit Islam. They should be free to choose any other religion or even no religion.

However, if persuasion does not work, all the Muslims would have to be pressurized for quitting Islam. This can be done in the following manner –

• First, the free and democratic world should ban Islam through their parliamentary resolutions.

• Then, they should boycott all Muslim countries – they should not have any trade or diplomatic relations with them. They should expel Muslim countries from all international organizations including UN. They should also not allow any other non-Muslim country to have trade or diplomatic relationship with Muslim countries. As a preparation for such an eventuality, the free world must gradually reduce their dependence on oil of the Arab countries. They must put in place an alternative strategy for supply of green and renewable energy.
In other countries where Muslims are in minority, the majority community should boycott them by not having any economic or social relationship. Wait for a year or so. If Muslims still do not quit Islam,

• Warn Muslim countries that all their military facilities would be destroyed one by one. If they still do not quit Islam,

• The combined security forces of the rest of the world should destroy their military. As a preparation for that eventuality, the free world must start action towards making one combined world security force. If they still do not quit Islam,

• We should go on destroying each of their religious places one by one, starting with Kaba of Mecca and mosques of Medina and Jerusalem. If they still do not quit Islam,

• We should go on destroying each of their educational institutions – Madarsas, universities etc. If they still do not quit Islam,

• We should go on bombing and destroying their villages, towns and cities one by one.

This way, at some stage or the other, all Muslims of Islamic countries will have to quit Islam or else they would all be killed.

Once either of the two happens, the minority Muslims of free and democratic countries will be so demoralized and devastated that they would voluntarily quit Islam. In case, they still don't, they would also be given the same options as given to their brethren of Islamic countries.

However, even after their forced quitting of Islam, some Muslims may continue to be sympathetic to Islamic ideology. Therefore, they need to be kept under watch through intelligence for some more time and must be executed immediately in case they are found to start any secretive terrorist activity again.
