At its core, Islam is an insidious form of government and human oppression that hides itself behind a religion. Certainly most Muslims pray five times each day and are devoted to the teachings of the Qur’an. Praying is not the problem; their mindless devotion to their Holy Book is the predicament for the free world.
My book Unholy Dilemma 3 – A Search for Logic in the Qur’an delved into many of the specifics of the Islamic Holy Book and revealed its teachings on several areas of human life. It is available through Amazon.com so I won’t repeat my observations here.
All religions have some type of Holy Book that they use for guidance and reproof. For Christians that Holy Book is the Bible; more specifically the New Testament. The Old Testament is still read and used, but mostly to verify the fulfilment of prophesy or to use a sin listed in the Pentateuch (Torah) to establish relevance today. Interestingly those admonitions and punishments which are thought to be antiquated are ignored by the same adherents. Be this as it may, Christians and Jews do not unequivocally follow the writings of their Holy Books; rather they use logic to only implement what is deemed to be currently relevant and comporting with current law and values. In other words, a Christian or Jew would be very unlikely to take a rebellious son to the city elders to be stoned to death as prescribed in Deuteronomy 21:18-21. And therein is the difference between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Christianity and Judaism have grown up so to speak. Islam is mired in the beliefs which are delineated in the Pentateuch and their adherents are unwavering in their belief and devotion to these antiquated laws. Foremost of their belief system is that women are little more than chattel, held for the sexual gratification of males who practice the religion. That mindset can be observed in the belief that seventy-two virgins await those who are martyred in service to Allah. Actually this belief isn’t found in the Qur’an, it is found in a Hadith (an extra-Koranic edict) issued by a cleric. However, the Qur’an does give Muslim men license to take women, without their consent, any place or way that they desire. This has led to many sexual assaults in Europe and Great Britain. In fact one Islamic congressional member in the U.S. is alleged to have abused his girlfriend. Even though beating a wife or girlfriend is accepted practice in the Islamic world, it is unlawful in the United States. Don’t expect this allegation to be reported by the media because of the individual’s political affiliation.
Islamic migrants have overwhelmed much of Europe and Great Britain and overtaxed their social services programs. Everywhere Muslims migrate there is a clash of cultures because adherents of Islam use Sharia Law as their benchmark of social behavior. Sharia is an ancient law loosely based on the decrees contained in the Pentateuch with a few Islamic inventions thrown in to augment the ancient rules.
Christians may believe there is no way to attain paradise but through Jesus and impose perdition on those who believe otherwise, but Christianity does not physically execute those who dissent or leave the faith; not always so with Islam.
Islam is spreading within the continental U.S., bringing its antiquated belief system and problems with it. Sharia Law and United States Constitutional Law are incompatible. So the import of Muslims brings about social, cultural, and legal conflicts. Ninety Muslims are running for political office in the U.S. in 2018; the Council of Islamic Relations is attacking anyone who criticizes the Islamic candidates.
In 2016 the Muslim population in the U.S. was at 3.3 million, in 2017 it had grown to 3.45 million. It is projected that Islam will be the second largest religious group in America by 2050. Muslims on average are younger than other ethnic groups, have more children per family, and under Sharia Law can practice polygamy.
All the foregoing is just fairly interesting reading, until it is too late. We are now experiencing how the black minority holds sway and are redefining much of our culture and history; it will be hell on earth when Muslims attain the same influence in our country.
