The Islamist World View - Part I
The overwhelming majority of those who practice Islam are law abiding citizens with the same struggles and the same aspirations as the rest of us. But... all the major terrorists and terror organizations throughout the world are professed Muslims! Why? What is the cultural core behind such a phenomenon? What is the divine source they cite as justification for their actions? Every single one of these individuals, every single one of these organizations claims they are merely following the Qur'an.
The Qur'an is the record of the revelations Muhammad received from Allah, through the angel Jibreel (Gabriel). These revelations change in tone from the Prophet's early times in Mecca to the time he fled to Meddina. The revelations in Mecca were more conciliatory in nature, but after he started building a military force in Meddina they became more hostile towards anyone who would oppose him, anyone who refused to submit. This contradictions are explained away by saying that later revelations supersede the earlier ones...
As you will see, in the video below, well known Mullah Amjun Chaudry has no problem justifying violence against infidels on British TV:
Some of the passages that explain infidels are wrong follow below:
Do you then hope that they would believe in you, and a party from among them indeed used to hear the word of Allah, then altered it after they had understood it, and they know (this). (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation)
Do you then hope that they will believe in you, when some of them have already heard the Word of God and knowingly perverted it, although they understood its meaning. (N. J. Dawood translation)
Maulana Muhammad Ali, comments on this verse:
75a. - That the Israelites did not preserve their sacred books in their purity is a constant charge laid by the Holy Qur'an against the Jews. In fact, the alteration and corruption of the various books of the Bible is now proved beyond all doubt; see 79a
79a. - The alteration and corruption of the Bible, the Old as well as the New Testament, spoken of in verse 75 and repeated here, is now an established fact...
It is an established fact that those perfidious Jooz and their Christian friends corrupted both Testaments?!?!? How do we know this?
Woe! then to those who write the Book with their hands then say, This is from Allah; so that they may take it all for a small price. So woe! to them for what their hands write and woe! to them for what the yearn. (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation)
Woe betide those that write the scriptures with their own hands and then declare: 'This is from God,' in order to gain some paltry end. Woeful shall be their fate, because of what their hands have written, because of what they did.(N. J. Dawood translation)
Ah yes, foolish me. Definitely proven beyond the shadow of a doubt! Don't you agree, gentle reader? Now what passages were altered by the Jews and the Christians?
Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say do you know better or Allah? And who is more unjust than he who conceals a testimony that he has from Allah? And Allah is not heedless of what you do. (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation)
Do you claim that Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes were all Jews or Christians? Say: 'Who knows better, you or God? Who is more wicked than the man who hides a testimony he has received from God? God is never heedless of what you do."(N. J. Dawood translation)
In his comment and explanation to the above verse, Maulana Ali proves how little he knows or underrstands Judaism:
140a. -The interrogation here is simply to reprove the Jews and the Christians, the Jewish claim was that only acceptance of the Jewish law could save man, and the Christians claimed that none could be saved unless he accepted the atonement of Jesus. they are told that their ancestors who were prophets were the followers of neither the one nor the other. Islam was, in fact, a reversion to the simple faith of sincerity, the faith of Abraham and his immediate followers and descendants.
So the Jews and Christians not only perverted the earlier teachings but are, as a result, simply wrong, Islam is their only hope... I see and I can understand the reason why Allah requires mere humans to redeem his honor. Boyyy! Were we People of the Book wrong! Don't you feel enlightened and liberated, gentle reader, now that the truth has been revealed? Oh, what will it take for us - infidels - to understand that Islam really came before both Judaism and Christianity in spite of historical evidence of thousands of years to the contrary?!?!?
In spite of this being the second chapter of the Qur'an, it's revelations were from Meddina and they supersede anything that was said about the People of the Book in Mecca, even though Mecca's revelations may appear in later chapters. By quoting chapter and verse (and showing the original Arabic text) from the Qur'an, by showing one of the Mullahs justifying whatever Muslims may inflict on non Muslims... have I become guilty of disrespecting Islam? Did this very mild post, with direct quotes and my personal views on them, violate the latest travesty resolution passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council?
