    …..or is it ‘The Religion of Blood’?




    1.In his novel “Coup D’Etat,” Ben Coes writes

    “The hardest lesson I had to teach my students at the madrasa was about the need for violent jihad,” said El-Khayab, staring at the window, despite his blindness. “That the violence was somehow necessary in order to create a world without violence. That Islam, the most beautiful and peaceful of religions, demanded that the blood of the infidel be spilled across the earth in order to wash away the filth of the past. The reason it was hard for me to teach this lesson was because I was hidden away, behind the stones and the ivy, the bricks and the windows and doors, within the comforting walls and sounds of the madrasa. It was the boys who had to go out in the world and sacrifice themselves. They were the ones who had to spill the blood on behalf of Allah.”



    2.A pot-boiler….no more. Just fiction…..or, is it?

    Those of us who are literate know that novelists, more often than not, do scrupulous research to bring their fiction as close to reality as possible.
    And, it is possible to compare Coe’s fiction with real world events.


    3.This week, in Canada, they held Quds Day…. “an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan that was initiated by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel.”
    Quds Day - Wikipedia

    One celebrant made clear that he yearned of the day when Sharia was in force, and homosexuals could be executed.

    “A protester at the Toronto Al Quds Day rally has said at some point, Sharia Law will replace Canadian Law …





    Muslim protester warns, Sharia Law is coming and if that bothers Western nations, they should stop allowing us into their countries · Caldron Pool

    Is this Muslim speaker a one-off? An outlier? A 'lone-wolf'?
    Or is this view about Sharia and slaughter of those not of the faith, a major theme among the faithful?



    Of course…..we in the West could simply deny the truth, put out head in the sand….



    ...or take heed.

    Nice post. You asked the question but never answered. My answer, do we still have the Oath to the US including a pledge to uphold the constitution when immigrants enter?

    4. Or, we could take heed of that Muslim speaker, and recognize the danger.

    Perhaps this Muslim cleric could shed more light on the subject.

    “New York Mufti says, Muslims cannot integrate: ‘Muslims should hate non-Muslims’ “The general principle… is to love and to hate for the sake of Allah,” New York Mufti says, Muslims cannot integrate: 'Muslims should hate non-Muslims' · Caldron Pool


    Compare that to this, from three millennia ago….Lest any imagine that all religions are the same, Leviticus 19:34

    34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.



    5. Even before the Book of the Judeo-Christian faith, folks learned to live together even if they didn’t all worship in the same way:

    Before Sinai and the Ten Commandments, there were the rules called the Noahide Laws, based on reason and a desire to be able to live with other people, laws against bad behavior, the idea that these injured society: bans on murder, theft, idolatry, sexual immorality, animal cruelty, cursing God, and the need to set up courts to punish the infractions. They are incumbent on everyone, whether one respects the Bible or not, because they are so obvious.
    The benefit of the Bible is that it tells society how to be good.

    Noahide Laws, also called Noachian Laws, a Jewish Talmudic designation for seven biblical laws given to Adam and to Noah before the revelation to Moses on Mt. Sinai and consequently binding on all mankind.” Noahide Laws | Judaism

    “According to Jewish tradition, non-Jews who adhere to these laws …are said to be followers of Noahidism and regarded as righteous gentiles, who are assured of a place in the world to come, the final reward of the righteous.” Seven Laws of Noah - Wikipedia



    Not good enough for the 7th century barbarians. Hence, the sword on the Saudi flag.

    Sure.....the former is the manual of the Judeo-Christian faith, the basis for Western Civilization....


    ...the latter is the instruction manual for the political movement called Islam.


    "We believe in freedom of religion insofar as a religion teaches peace and love and the brotherhood of man. When someone uses the concept of religion to dominate other religions through force and coercion or to take over a nation, they you have to say, "My friend, that's not a religion." Michael Savage


    Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, Jr. (Ret.), the former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet,".... until you recognize that Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion, you’re never going to come to grips with it. And as far as a strategy – let me just conclude one thing, as I just had in my latest op-ed -- the Obama Administration has a strategy.”

    “It’s very simple, any thinking American should be able to grasp,” said the admiral. “It’s anti-American, anti-Western, it’s pro-Islamic, it’s pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood!”
    Admiral Lyons on Obama’s Strategy: ‘It’s Anti-American ... Pro-Islamic, It’s Pro-Iranian, and Pro-Muslim Brotherhood!’



    Christians and Jews....the more devout, the less violent. Not so with Islam.
    Bill Donohue



    the only 'religion' that Barack Hussein Obama has stood up for, shielded from criticism, defended and advanced?
    .... this is associated more with Islam and not with any other 'religion:
    'Pederasty, child brides, honor killings, clitorectomies, stonings, wife beatings and blowing up every innocent they can find.



    That help?

    6. Blood cult…or Religion of Peace?

    Oh, yes: an adherent must submit his will to the deity, and if the opportunity arises, give his life for it. Martyrdom and suicide are the expressions of submission; human blood purifies the world, the totalist radical’s desire for perfection.
    In Sayyid Qutb’s “In the Shade of the Quran,” a thirty-volume commentary, violent jihad is the method of choice, and this is the inspiration for Muslim warriors worldwide.


    “The blood of the enemy renews the identity of the lynch mob…Death is not an instrumentality-like the death of the enemy on the battlefield- it has become an end in itself” Laurent Murawiec, “The Mind of Jihad,” p. 8-9


    The following was found in a hand-written ‘killing manual’ in the luggage of Mohammad Atta: “You must make your knife sharp and you must not discomfort your animal during the slaughter.”
    Mohammed Atta





    Here is the poetry of a British woman....a Muslim....exhibiting her creativity:

    "A Poem of Praise to Allah by Samina Malik: How To Behead
    Hold him
    Tie the arms behind his back
    And bandage his legs together
    Just by the ankles
    Blindfold the punk
    So that he won’t hesitate as much
    For on seeing the sharp pointy knife
    He’ll begin to shake
    And continuously scream like an eedyat
    And jiggle like a jelly
    Trust me, this will sure get you angry
    It’s better to have at least two or three brothers by your side
    Who can hold the fool
    Because as soon as the warm sharp knife
    Touches his naked flesh
    He’ll come to know what’ll happen
    It’s not as messy or as hard as some may think,
    It’s all about the flow of the wrist.
    No doubt that the punk will twitch and scream
    But ignore the donkey’s ass
    And continue to slice back and forth
    You’ll feel the knife hit the wind and food pipe
    But don’t stop
    Continue with all your might.
    About now you should feel the knife vibrate,
    You can feel the warm heat being given off,
    But this is due to the friction being caused."
    How Are These Women Different?
