Pickering Post: The Sword of Islam

The flag of Saudi Arabia

“These Jihadists do not follow the way of Islam, Islam is a religion of peace, but it has been hijacked by those who now defame us.” How often do you hear that explanation? Or, “We do not condone what ISIS does but we agree with Shariah and the Holy Koran.” Heard that one too?

So, do “moderate” Muslims practise the rule of taqiyya (lying to non-believers in the pursuit of victory) when confronted by atrocities committed in the name of Islam? You bet your socks they do, here’s why… and here’s the proof:

Why is terrorism integral to Islam?
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

Why does Islam condone the slaughter women and children?
Bukhari Hadith (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They are from them.”

Why does Islam need to conquer the “evil moderates” of the Levant (ie Jordan etc)?
Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

Why does Islam take no prisoners?
“Quran (8:67) – “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land.”
