“And I consider it a part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear”. Barack Obama, Cairo speech, June 4, 2009.
President Obama can fight against negative stereotypes of Islam if he chooses but so far he has made no case in its defense other than a few general comments that are clearly false. He refuses to discuss the “prophet” Muhammad, the only one responsible for Islam, the Quran and the legacy of terrorism and intolerance under the banner of Islam.
Muslims aren’t the problem generally, although it is always possible for a Muslim to experience a call to jihad in a moment of religious exuberance. It’s called the “sudden jihad syndrome”. But moderates, “like moderates in any religion or organization, have a life to live and are minimal participants”. It is the clerics and the true believers who keep Islam functioning. Their guides are the Quran and the hadiths, the words and deeds of Muhammad. Without the true believers, Islam would perish.
There is only one Quran, containing the words of Allah and given to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel. Thus Muslims believe the Quran is valid for all time. It cannot be changed. The true believers, those who will take some action to support Islam’s goal, make up a significant part of the more than one billion Muslims worldwide.
The goal of Islam from the Quran:
Sura 9:33 “It is He Who hath sent His Apostle with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it).”
Islam’s goal was announced in America by Omar Ahmad, founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, paraphrased in the San Ramon Herald, 1998:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant…The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth”.
It has been said that the Quran is a license to kill unbelievers. It presents a choice of you are either with us or against us. And those who oppose Islam will be dealt with harshly:
Sura 8:12 “I shall instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers; Smite ye above their necks and smite their fingertips off”.
Sura 47:4 “Therefore, when you meet the Unbelievers (in fight), strike off their heads…”
Barack Obama’s speech: “And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious TOLERANCE and racial equality.” (The facts state otherwise. Read on.)
Muhammad, while in exile in Medina (Yathrib), Saudi Arabia, tried to convert the Jews to Islam but was soundly rejected. The “prophet” had his critics assassinated, setting the standard for dealing with those who oppose the brutality and lack of tolerance in Islam. 
“In the case of Abu Afak, a 120 year-old Jewish man who urged people to reject the false prophet, Muhammad had Salem Ibn Umayer run a sword through the elderly man while he slept.
“After his murder a Jewish poetess named Asma Marwan spoke out against Islam and Muhammad, asking who would stop him? Hearing this, another hit man, Umayer Adiy al-Katmi, went to the woman’s home, removed the baby she was nursing and killed her by the sword. Muhammad told the killer: ‘You have helped God and his apostle, O Umayer.’ This became the generally accepted way of silencing the critics of Islam and the prophet”.
Muslim men are encouraged to emulate Muhammad, the perfect example of a man. And they are doing that today.
Theo van Gogh was assassinated by Mohammad Bouryeri in Amsterdam in 2004 for making a film about abuse of women by Muslim men. His excuse: The Dutchman had insulted Islam.
Muslims were also emulating the prophet when they executed Daniel Pearl in Pakistan and Nick Berg and Paul Johnson in Iraq by beheading them. (These examples of Islamic “tolerance” cover 1400 years.)
“In addition to assassinations, Muhammad launched a jihad against Jewish villages to take care of the enemies of Islam. In 627, after the surrender of the Beni Quraidha near Medina, the prophet had all of the men and boys of fighting age (about 900) beheaded. His campaign wiped out most of the Jews in the area. The women and children were taken as slaves and their property divided among the Muslim army. Muhammad took Rayhana Bint Zayd, a beautiful Jewish woman, to add to his collection. Her brother, husband and father had just been beheaded by the prophet’s army of Allah.”
The history of Islam is one of jihad, war against the Unbelievers, including people of the Book, the Jews and Christians. The captured lands became dar al Islam, the land of Islam under Islamic law. The rest of the world, dar al harab, is the land of war. “Jihad is a normal state of being in the dar al harab which will only end with the conversion of the entire world to Islam.” Dhimmi, by Bat Ye’or. Reviewed by Aviv Goldstein.
“Throughout earliest Islamic history, the conquered peoples by advancing Muslim armies were given the choice of either converting, being killed, or living as a conquered people, a dhimmi. These subjugated people were suspended in time and space, for dhimmitude meant being barely tolerated in your dispossessed land.
“Both Jews and Christians alike suffered the ignominious life of having their fate decided upon the whim of despotic rulers. Although a legal definition of the dhimmi exists, that they must pay various taxes and tolls, that they must live a second class life and give deference to their Muslim neighbors, much of their tragic existence depended on…despotic rulers and frenzied Arab mobs who denied them even the little that was given to them through Islamic law.”
Christians and Jews found it difficult to practice their religion since strict rules were placed on both. Churches, in some cases, were turned into mosques. Dhimmis had no legal rights. In some regions, they had to dress differently and conform to other rules when seen in public.
“Dhimmis were forbidden to ride a horse or camel, since these animals were considered too noble.”
“A dhimmi had to hurry through the streets, always passing to the left (impure) side of a Muslim, who was expected to force him to the narrow side or onto the gutter. He had to walk humbly with lowered eyes, to accept insults without replying.”
A Muslim could kill a dhimmi and not be prosecuted.
To see how “tolerant” the Muslims are, go here. The author used Islamic sources for this lecture. It concludes that the jihad-dhimmitude connection is “a stable and enduring pattern”. Some examples: Sudan, Indonesia. (2002).
During his speech, Obama quoted the Quran:
“As the Holy Koran tells us, ‘Be concious of God and speak always the truth.'”
According to jihadwatch, that was Sura 9: 119.
“O ye who believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah, and be with the truthful.”
The quote was the prelude to Sura 9: 120-123, in which “The Qu’ran is scolding Muslims who refused to accompany Muhammad on his expedition to Tabouk in northern Arabia, where he wanted to fight a Byzantine garrison.”
It was all “about the necessity to wage jihad against the unbelievers”. It certainly wasn’t about peace, love or TOLERANCE. (I verified the Sura with my Quran.)
Barack Obama’s speech: “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism-it is an important part of promoting peace.”
By ignoring the “truth” President Obama has done a disservice to the American people. It certainly hasn’t done anything to stop the Islamic terrorists. But then this fight will go on indefinitely. There will always be true believers who will carry on the jihad. Islamic jihad will be here long after America leaves the scene. And our nation’s demise won’t be because of Islam.
If he cared about America’s future, the President would stop the massive influx of foreigners, both legal and illegal, plus control our borders. He would root out the huge foreign (Latino) criminal presence operating unopposed within our borders. He would stop changing our demographics in order to provide corporations with cheap labor. And he would not change our borders and replace our nation with a North American Community.
The end of our sovereign nation won’t be accomplished by some outside enemy. The enemy that will destroy America emanates from the highest levels of our government.
