Islam: The Eighth Wonder of the World?

Pages: 1 2

7. The only nation that still uses the word “infidel” [kafir] against those who oppose its clerics or religious groups;

8. The only nation where the ruling of a fatwa [religious edict] upstages the ruling of the law—and yet it brags about being a nation that upholds the “rule of law”;

9. The only nation that does not contribute to the modern era—not even by producing a tooth brush—and yet brags about its extinct civilization.

10. The only nation that insults and condemns the West—yet lives as a parasite relying on the West in every way.

11. The only nation that incarcerates intellectuals for practicing freedom of expression.

12. The only nation that claims to be religious and guards its piety on both the official and the public level—yet there is nothing righteous about it.

13. The only nation that grants its students a PhD in religion [?];

14. The only nation still governed by the writings of those who died a thousand years ago;

15. The only nation where clerics serve as sycophantic toadies to the rulers, remaining silent about their transgressions, even whenthey goes against Sharia;

16. The only nation that does not acknowledge the International Human Rights Declaration;

17. The only nation that forbids all human arts except calligraphy;

18. The only nation that believes in one religion [Islam]—yet its various religious groups cannot agree on the exegeses and directives of that one religion;

19. The only nation where clerics blabber endlessly, only to conclude by saying, “Allah only knows” (as if people were not already aware);

20. The only nation that believes in exorcizing Jinn from humans—even if by killing the person;

21. The only nation that has armies—and yet its lands are occupied and it fears combat;

22. The only nation wherein the Almighty Creator’s description applies—“thou wouldst think they were united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom” [Quran 59:14];

23. The only nation still inquiring about religious matters and looking for satisfactory answers for over a thousand years;

24. The only nation that asks more about sex than about worship during its one month of fasting every year;

25. The only nation that believes anything and everything its clerics say without question or verification.

This nation—with all these unique traits—does it not deserve to be described as the “Wonder-of-Wonders”?

    Islam or more likely 'the seventh beast' of the Book of Revelation. Please go to Ellis Skolfield's website and read "The False Prophet'. You can download it for free. It will blow you away/

    BROTHERS I ASK YOU TO TAKE MOMENTS TO READ ON TRUE ISLAM. ISLAM IS THE PEACEFUL RELIGION. DO NOT BELIEVE HATE AND LIES YOU SEE IN YOUR JEWIST MEDIA. I KNOW YOU ARE ONE DAY TO EMBRACE THE PROPHET AND HIS MESSAGE. MANY BLESSINGS ON YOU. http://www.al-islami.com/islam/religion_of_peace….

    • kafir4life

      mohamat was a piece of filth, and that terror guide, the koran not good enough to use to blow your nose, but perfectly acceptable to use as toilet paper.

      I learn about islam from muslims, and I know more than I need to know, terrorist.

    • Zena

      Islam comes from Judaism. If you hate Jews, you hate your own history. If Muslims were any kind of men you would protect your women and your Jewish relatives. You kill children, attack your peaceful Jewish neighbors, and abuse women because you are all such frustrated men. You believe in a wonderful afterlife for yourself because you are self absorbed and self righteous, meanwhile, throwing away the life you were blessed with! How sad and pathetic.

      • popseal

        Correction Sir… Islam comes from the Qurish tribe of Mohammed that paid homage to a desert moon deity. Further, the Father of Jesus is certainly not the god of Mohammed. Naive, cowardly DHIMMIs, or the unstudied might flock to your premise, but those of us with a moral plumb line and a spiritual compass will not.

    • Zionista

      Everything I needed to know about islam and the knuckle draggers who follow this 7th century death cult I learned on 9/11.

    • Nakba1948

      Jamil, please don't confuse Zionists with Jews. Zionists do have a stranglehold on the American media, but they do not represent the Jewish people as a whole. Judaism is a proud, rich religion; Zionism is perversion of true Judaism, just as al Qaeda is a perversion of true Islam.

      • alphakilosingh

        Al Qaeda is a perversion of true Islam? Would you mind proving it?
        On the contrary, Al Qaeda says that it represents true Islam. For everything it does or believes in, it draws its justification from 'The Book'.
        There is only one Islam. As Mark Steyn puts it: There may be a moderate Muslim, but there is no moderate Islam.

        • popseal

          My seven years of study and four years visiting in Pakistan have taught me that moderate Muslims have hijacked the violent superstition of Mohammed. CAIR and DHIMMIs like New York's mayor happily promote a lie.

        • ObamaYoMoma

          There may be a moderate Muslim, but there is no moderate Islam.

          Although I respect Mark Steyn, I must point out that he is wrong in this case. The sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for every Muslim on earth to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme.

          Note: The sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't just make it an obligatory duty in Islam for only so-called extremist Muslims to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, and the sixth and most important pillar of Islam doesn't just make it an obligatory duty in Islam for only so-called radical Muslims to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same time giving so-called moderate Muslims an exemption and free pass from fighting jihad in the cause of Allah. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. No exceptions!

          Hence, per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. A tiny minority of them are violent jihadists like AQ, while the vast overwhelming majority of them are covert and deceptive non-violent jihadists like most Muslim immigrants to the West, and the few of them that are not jihadists, i.e., so-called moderates, are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of mainstream orthodox Islam must be executed.

      • dave

        Zionism is simply that Jews want their own country to live in free from persecution, it is an inherent part of Judaism. God, the land, the people. The land is the size of an English county and that is ALL they want, not every country on the planet like Islam, and yet 'Zionism' is used as a pejorative term to describe Jews who are pro Israel.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        al Qaeda is a perversion of true Islam.

        Actually no, AQ is an organization comprised of violent jihadists devoted primarily to violent jihad, but they nevertheless follow mainstream orthodox Islam. Meanwhile, all other Muslims, on the other hand, are also jihadists as well, but in stark contrast to AQ and its ilk, they are covert and deceptive non-violent jihadists. Nonetheless, violent jihadists and covert and deceptive non-violent jihadists, although they violently disagree on the means of waging jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslims, share the same exact goal, that is to make Islam supreme throughout the world.

        Moreover, covert and deceptive non-violent jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest, is employed by the Islamic world against the West astronomically far more prevalently and constitutes an exponentially far greater threat to the peace and security of the West relative to violent jihad. As a matter of fact, a single covert and deceptive non-violent jihadist can do more damage to the West than a thousand 9/11 violent jihad attacks, plus covert and deceptive non-violent jihad doesn't invite counterproductive wars on Muslims or attract unwanted scrutiny, focus, and attention on Islam.

        Hence, the only viable solution is to outlaw Islam on the grounds that Islam isn't really a faith-based religion but instead a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology that masquerades as being a religion to dupe the gullible societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism and at the same time ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage on the grounds that it is really covert and deceptive non-violent jihad for the purpose of mass infiltration and stealth demographic conquest.

        Once our country has been rendered devoid of all Muslims, the threat of violent jihad attacks on the homeland will be virtually nothing, the much greater threats stemming from mass Muslim infiltration and stealth demographic conquest will have been completely eliminated altogether, and the hundreds of billions of dollars we are currently spending annually to protect the homeland from rare violent jihad attacks, could be used for something else instead, like getting our financial house back in order. It's common sense.

        Your problem is because you are an obsessed Jew hating anti-Semitic bigot, you are also a gullible useful idiot when it comes to Islam. Thus, you swallow taqiyya like it is crack cocaine.

        In any event, what is happening in Israel is no different from what is happening in Kashmir, Jammu, India, Thailand, the Philippines, Chechnya, Russia,Western China, Cote D'Ivoire, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Chad, Bosnia, Kosovo, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum. The Islamic world is waging a permanent jihad of conquest perpetually against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel primarily via their proxy the so-called Palestinians, just like they are waging permanent and perpetual jihads of conquest against the Hindu unbelievers, Buddhist unbelievers, Christian unbelievers, Atheist unbelievers, Orthodox Christian unbelievers, and animist unbelievers that live in all the aforementioned places.

        Apparently, you are too mentally incompetent to be able to connect all the dots, because like the unhinged myopic bigot and gullible useful idiot you are, you are totally obsessed and focused only on one thing and one thing only, that is fomenting another mass genocidal holocaust of Jews because one of them wasn't enough to satisfy your unhinged thirst for the blood of Jews.

  • ermias

    what do you mean the true Islam? you mean Islam in action, which is a serious problem of our world. we have suffered, traumatized, looted, plundered, killed, massacred in mass … etc by Islam. My brother, being born from Islam family it might be difficult for you to realize all the mistakes of Islam in your book and in action.

    I saw Islam in action forcing children from my family to drink the blood of their parents who refused to be converted from Christianity to Islam. but, still my church pray for all the suffering of Muslim nations. you see the difference? Islam is simply an Arab politics. Watch out!, let alone what is documented there are countless horrible act of Islam every day almost in every corner of the world.

  • Ghostwriter

    I'm amazed this guy lived so long,considering how violent Muslims can be about their own religion,especially if it's from one of their own.

  • Ghostwriter

    What I meant was that Muslims don't take kindly to criticism,especially if it's from one of their own.

  • popseal

    1400 years ago a known killer established a violent superstition that has been a plague against humanity ever since. If this evaluation of Islam is offensive then burn the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Oxford History of Islam, the works of Bernard Lewis or Andrew Wheatcroft, and buy a magic carpet that'll transport you to Mecca five times a day.

  • clarityrising

    True Islam Nakbar? What is true Islam? Mohammed didn’t even practice what he preached. Every time he had another desire- like his underaged christian slave- he had a “vision” from allah to tell him it was okay and thus a new hadith was born. All the koran is is a book of one man’s desire’s and view on how the world should operate according to him. It’s a narcissistic fantasy that fell apart the moment he died.

    No privilege by descent
    No muslim killing muslims
    No killing of innocents (women and children)

    I think that’s what they call in basebal an 0′fer

    "Throughout this book, there have been allusions to the frequent historical links betweeen the Muslim religion and the origins of Masonry. The most obvious connection with Islam in the world of the Lodge is, of course, the Shrine. Most don't know that the actual title of the Shriner organization is the "Ancient Arabic Order, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. Not only is the Shrine openly evocative of Arab culture, the "shrine" is actually the sacred shrine of Islam, the Kaaba in Mecca! Few outsiders realize that behind its exotic, clownish exterior, the Shrine ceremonial is steeped in demonic Islamic religion utterly foreign to the G-d of the Bible."

    I specifically did not say the “Islamic [or Islamist] nation,” for within this Muslim nation are wondrous matters not witnessed by any other nation since Allah Almighty created Adam. Here are some of these wonders:

    He couldn't help himself, in strict adherence with his new religion of PC multiculturalism, the translator just had to inject a little false PC multicultural nonsense into the article. Damn…PC multiculturalism is definitely one of the most powerful manifestations in the world, even though it is 100 percent bogus and false.

  • Schlomotion

    Raymond Ibrahim criticizes Islam in precisely the same way that Gilad Atzmon criticizes Zionism. Really, there is no difference. Who is calling Ibrahim a self-hating Muslim? Anyone? To be sure, I agree with his disdain of Islam, and yet the savaging of Islamism combined with the advocacy of Zionism seems like an untenable bias to me.

    • kentatwater

      Raymond Ibrahim criticizes Islam in precisely the same way that Gilad Atzmon criticizes Zionism.

      from The Guardian, http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/sep/

      The trouble is that Atzmon has often argued that the Zionist oppression of the Palestinians is attributable not to the bellicose politics of the Israeli state, but to Jewish lobbies and Jewish power. Atzmon's antisemitic writings include, for example, a 2009 article – Tribal Marxism for Dummies – in which he explains that while "Marxism is a universal paradigm, its Jewish version is very different. It is there to mould Marxist dialectic into a Jewish subservient precept". Atzmon argues that it is merely a "Judeo-centric pseudo intellectual setting which aims at political power" and that "Jewish Marxism is there to … stop scrutiny of Jewish power and Jewish lobbying".

      This is a wild conspiracy argument, dripping with contempt for Jews. Sadly, Atzmon's status as a celebrity advocate of the Palestinian cause means that he has been feted by some on the left. The Socialist Workers party, for example, used to invite him to attend their public events, and Indymedia has robustly defended Atzmon, even banning people who object to him.

      • Schlomotion

        I find his argument most convincing, and his saxophone playing is excellent. He is well spoken, erudite, and unencumbered by any of the emotional baggage of the 20th Century. Unlike his opponents, who scream "shame" like it is an Occupy Wall Street Protest, Atzmon simply exhorts people to think for themselves and question the Israelist narrative. His book is also very well received, per the Amazon review section. If the man has contempt for Jews, I can only surmise that it is the same as an ex-Catholic's contempt for Catholicism, or an ex-Mormon's contempt for Mormonism, or an ex-Amish person's contempt for farm life.

          This is a wild conspiracy argument, dripping with contempt for Jews….Indymedia has robustly defended Atzmon, even banning people who object to him.

          Yeah.

          • Schlomotion

            Gilad Atzmon does not run Indymedia any more than Jihad Watch runs Anders Breivik. Why unload the whole faux-media malaise on his doorstep?

          • kentatwater

            Wild conspiracy theorists are birds of a feather.

            And citing Breivik and Jihad Watch in the same breath, really says it all about where you are coming from.

          • Schlomotion

            I did not pen his manifesto for him. Nor did I hold his hand and force him to cite Robert Spencer 31 times.

          • kentatwater

            Non-responsive. I never claimed you did, unlike your equally silly claim that Heritage authored Obamacare.

            Robert Spencer can not reasonably be held to account for the writings of another, anymore than the bilge coming out of Westboro Baptist Church can reasonably be laid at Jesus' feet.

          • Schlomotion

            They are plagiarized whole passages of his work. Just as Louis Farrakhan called and called for something to be done about Malcolm X, and Talmadge Hayer answered the call, Spencer called and called for something to be done about islamicists and the multiculturalists who tolerate them. Finally, a guy did a bunch of exercises, took lots of vitamins, put on lots of body armor, strapped up with lots of weapons, published a plagiarized reprint of much of Spencer's work and then went on a killing spree. I just observe these things and draw inferences.

          • kentatwater

            I just observe these things and draw inferences.

            What you do is stir the pudding. But I'm afraid they forgot to put the proof in it, this time.

            Please point to a quote, where Spencer called for vigilantism, and the murder of children…of any creed or race.

            We'll wait while you do your research, as it will indeed be a very long time before you find what I've asked you for.

          • Schlomotion

            One need not "call for vigilantism" if one constantly proclaims that the whole of Western Civilization will fall down around our ears unless the clarion call is heard, and unless a new Crusader Renaissance to repel the invasive forces of the modern Saladins is made. Spencer made the apt comparison to Charles Manson, however, it backfires, since Manson also did not call for vigilantism and murder. He hinted, and hinted to suggestible sorts of people, in the same way that you magnetize a pin.

          • kentatwater

            from the Wikipedia page on Charles Manson:

            By June, Manson was telling the Family they might have to show blacks how to start "Helter Skelter".[2]:244–247[36][39] When Manson tasked Watson with obtaining money supposedly intended to help the Family prepare for the conflict, Watson defrauded a black drug dealer named Bernard "Lotsapoppa" Crowe. Crowe responded with a threat to wipe out everyone at Spahn Ranch. Manson countered on July 1, 1969, by shooting Crowe at his Hollywood apartment.[2]:99–113[2]:91–96[40][41]

            Manson led by example. He was a murderer.

            Regardless of how dire Spencer's warnings may have been, warnings are not prescriptive. In the absence of proposed solutions, I suppose one may be able to pretend that this is what Spencer wanted all along ("nod nod wink wink"), but even that is not the case. Robert Spencer offers solutions, not just identification of the problem.

          • Schlomotion

            I did not say that warnings are prescriptive. That is a superficial academic point. In real life, a person who is a beacon of political messages does at one point or another question whether his statements are so vitriolic that they are initiating a flocking pattern. Spencer cannot be oblivious to the fact that he was crying fire in a crowded theater. He was singing "shave and a haircut" and leaving off the "two bits" until a bad actor came up with the obvious response. If you openly and repeatedly declare that multiculturalists are the modern day conversos opening the door to the Muslim horde and there should be an Inquisition, you have to know that in your professional hysteria you are going to generate mass hysteria until one person or several decide to move beyond talk and switch to bullets.

            Sigh. More games from you.

            Hardly merely academic.

            Spencer cannot be oblivious to the fact that he was crying fire in a crowded theater.

            He wasn't.

            He was singing "shave and a haircut" and leaving off the "two bits" until a bad actor came up with the obvious response.

            Scraping the barrel with childish metaphor now, aren't we.

            If you openly and repeatedly declare that multiculturalists are the modern day conversos opening the door to the Muslim horde and there should be an Inquisition…

            Who said that?

            …you have to know that in your professional hysteria you are going to generate mass hysteria until one person or several decide to move beyond talk and switch to bullets.

            Who's hysteria?

    The individuals that follow Islam may be, indeed, good human beings. But the religion is, if followed faithfully, a cult. Allah is NOT God, he is an idol. So, to eat halal meat is to literally eat meat sacrificed to idols.

    It doesn't matter whether you speak softly to them, or treat them kindly – to them, you are a devil-worshipping infidel, with NO rights at all.

    The Muslims will not change their minds about Christians; they have strong laws in most Islamic-dominated countries to prevent Christians from "sharing" their beliefs. Generally, it is a capital offense – meaning, if you share YOUR opinions, you will be executed.

  • Bartimaeus

    Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.
    23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
    24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
    25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
    26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
    27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.1 John 2

    Islam is anti-Christ in nature and practice. They deny all the basic doctrine of Christianity. Do not be deceived.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    You may be a born again Christian, but you are also one of the most gullible and ill educated loons on the planet at the same time. By the way, I hate to rain on your gullible parade, but Islam is not a faith based religion like Judaism and Christianity. Instead, Islam is a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology that first and foremost requires all Muslim to submit totally, completely, and unconditionally to the will of Allah, where the freedom of conscience is forbidden, and it enforces that first and foremost tenet by making blasphemy and apostasy capital offenses in Islam. In other words, Islam is 100 percent totalitarian.

  • Nakba1948

    "Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son." I wonder how the resident Jews on this board feel about that statement.

  • kentatwater

    We "resident Jews" generally shrug, and say live and let live.

    It's kind of hard to shrug, when you don't have a head, though. As Daniel Pearl.

    Oh, that's right. You can't.

  • Alizae

    You are totally wrong here. In Islam, muslims are not allowed to say anything bad about other religions, force others to join Islam unless they want to or judge anyone by their beliefs. Islam clearly says that every human is free to choose what they believe and no other human can stop them from doing what they want.
