Immediately after 9/11, President Bush defended Islam as a "great" world religion of "peace" and "tolerance." He visited an outpost of that murderous ideology, showing the proper dhimmi submission to Islam just hours after its adherents had slaughtered with zeal thousands of his countrymen. The President religiously refrained from using the terms "Islam" and "terrorism" in the same time zone.
Since then, President Bush has been growing in his realization of the breadth and depth of the Islamic threat to the point that he is finally identifying our temporal (and mortal) enemy as "Islamofascists." By this he acknowledges their global effort to subdue the world under the tyranny of Allah.
Regrettably, five years after 9/11, the President has still to admit publicly the fact that Islam itself--as defined by Allah and his false prophet Mohammed in Qur'an and Sunnah, that religion's "sacred" texts--is the source and sustenance of Islamic terrorism and has been for nearly one and one-half millennia. The failure of our nation's leadership to comprehend this fact--combined with the media's compliance in the "Islam is a religion of peace hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists" propaganda game--prevents us from defending ourselves as fully and effectively as we must, it cripples our ability to correctly implement effective measures to contain the enemy, and it makes impossible (if it is possible) to finally end once-for-all-time the threat posed by Allah's bloody ideology.
Apparently providing the leadership the West has been wanting, Pope Benedict and Emperor Manuel II Palaeologus have made the statement of fact the West has needed to hear, needs to hear, and needs to continue hearing, until the religion of Mahomet is recognized as the vile, malevolent evil it is.
Here's from where Islam's latest excuse for its bloodlust comes:
Undoubtedly, Emperor Palaeologus was referring to those commands and statements found in the perfect word of Allah and the words and deeds of his apostle, of which the following are only a small (but representative) sampling:
...In the seventh conversation..., the emperor touches on the theme of the holy war. The emperor must have known that surah 2, 256 reads: "There is no compulsion in religion". According to the experts, this is one of the suras of the early period, when Mohammed was still powerless and under threat. But naturally the emperor also knew the instructions, developed later and recorded in the Qur'an, concerning holy war. Without descending to details, such as the difference in treatment accorded to those who have the "Book" and the "infidels", he addresses his interlocutor with a startling brusqueness on the central question about the relationship between religion and violence in general, saying: "Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached".
"...fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war)..." (Qur’an 9:5).The Emperor was right. To the degree the Pope shares his conclusions, the Pope is right. They are right because they are merely stating the expressed will of Allah and his false prophet.
"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (Qur'an 9:29).
"Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them...And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail...faith in Allah altogether and everywhere..." (Qur'an 8:38, 39).
"Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not" (Qur'an 2:216).
"Allah's Apostle said: 'I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle...'" (Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24).
“Muhammad said, ‘A single endeavor of fighting in Allah’s Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it’” (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 50).
“A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, ‘Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad in reward.’ He replied, ‘I do not find such a deed’” (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 44).
"O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place..." (Qur'an 9:38, 39).
"Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): 'I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them'" (Qur'an 8:12).
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror. The treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand’” (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220).
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter..." (Qur'an 5:33).
"Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57).
"War is deceit" (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 268).
May the West have the courage to face this truth and act accordingly.
