Islam – a religion of peace or a totalitarian ideology

Posted by Picard578 on July 1, 2017

“Truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”

  • Gloria Steinem

During times of universal deceit; telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

  • George Orwell

Censorship reflects society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.

  • Potter Stewart

The worst form of inequality is to try make unequal things equal.

  • Aristotle

Political power comes from physical occupation: not historical rights, not title deeds, not moral rights – only occupation. Those people who occupy a territory determine the nature of the society in that region.

  • Arthur Kemp

There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don’t need terrorists, we don’t need homicide bombers. The 50+ million Muslims [in Europe] will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.

Western liberals (including the current Pope) all too often choose to sacrifice truth and critical thinking to the god of political correctness. But political correctness is the enemy of truth. While democracy is based on a compromise, there cannot be compromise with truth. Something is either true or it is not. If it is not true, then it is either a mistake (if accidental) or a lie (if intentional). But lies have many variants: direct lie, half-truth / omission, “from a certain point of view”, relativism. Thus, what follows will be an attempt at unbiased and non-politically correct answer to a question: is Islam a religion of peace? First comes the name itself. „Islam“ comes from „al-Silm“, which means „submission“. While Muslims say that it means „al-Salaam“ or „peace“, that is an example of „taqiyya“ – or a „holy lie“ (explained later). Next stage will naturally be the Qur’an, as it is the basis of Islam just as the Bible is the basis of Christianity – crime begins with a thought, and thought itself can be a crime. Since I have no knowledge of Arabic, I will be using translation by the Hadrat Maulawi Sher’Ali. Read the rest of this entry »
