Islam’s Insanities: All Just a ‘Hoax’?

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum and a CBN News contributor. He is the author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). 


You read something immensely disturbing concerning the Muslim world—say, that some Muslims seek to legalize sex-slavery or destroy Egypt’s Pyramids or approve of sodomy-suicide-missions or crucify infidels.  Your mind—exclaiming “tell me this is a joke!”—finds it difficult to accept such news. Then, somewhere from the bowels of the Internet, relief arrives.

The much welcomed word “Hoax!” appears, reconfirming your worldview.  All is well again.

But is it?  Are such accounts mere hoaxes?  Or is this just another strategy by those who apologize for Islam’s insanities—a strategy that relies exclusively on the fact that the Western mindset cannot fathom such news, anyway, and thus is all too willing to accept the hoax charge without a second thought?

Recall the news that Salafi parliamentarians in Egypt were pushing for a law legalizing necrophilia.  This information first appeared in Egypt’s most circulated newspaper, Al Ahram, followed by Al Arabiya.  The news went viral, prompting Western dismay.  But then a cutesy Christian Science Monitor article titled “Egypt ‘necrophilia law’? Hooey, utter hooey” tried to return us to the status quo.  Its author, one Dan Murphy, admonished the many websites that disseminated the necrophilia story: “Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet, kids. At least until there’s like, you know, some proof.”

And his “proof” that it was a hoax?  Nothing.  He even confirmed that “there was a Moroccan cleric a few years back who apparently did issue a religious ruling saying that husbands remained married to their wives in the first six hours after death and, so, well, you know [i.e., he permitted necrophilia].  But that guy is far, far out on the nutty fringe.”

Aside from Murphy’s immature tone—“so, well, you know” what?—one fails to see how characterizing a cleric as a “nut” means that his religious ruling is a “hoax”—that it never existed?  Likewise, when it comes to fatwas, it matters not which nation they hail from, so that Egyptians can easily uphold the fatwa of a Moroccan, or vice-versa, because in Islam there is no “national” distinction, only the umma.

And yet, no matter how shallow or lacking in evidence, the hoax charges resonate well, simply because the mainstream Western mentality instinctively rejects, in this case, the idea of codifying necrophilia.

Much of this is exacerbated by the fact that most Westerners, including reporters, cannot independently verify such stories, as they usually originate in Middle Eastern languages.  Which leads to my familiarity with this matter: I get most of my news directly from the Arabic media—knowing that it is better to get my information directly “from the horse’s mouth” than to get it from the limited and filtered Western media.

Accordingly, I am often first to expose stories that go unreported in the West—for instance, the fact that the U.S. embassy in Cairo was being threatened days before the Muhammad movie became a convenient excuse to riot and destroy (the original reason was to coerce the U.S. to free the Blind Sheikh and others).

However, those who prefer to keep such stories suppressed have learned to cry “hoax”—taking advantage of the fact that most Americans cannot read Arabic or verify these accounts for themselves.

Thus, when I documented the indisputable fact that several Islamists were calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Pyramids, the New York Times and Huffington Post cried “hoax”; when I shed light on an obscure “sodomy fatwa” which helped explain the role of intention in Islam (or niyya), Muslims and others cried hoax, including by lying and distorting; and when I reported on how Muslim Brotherhood supporters crucified their opponents, the National Post and others cried hoax.

And yet, none of these naysayers offered any meaningful evidence.  Instead, they banked on the fact that it is simply too hard to believe these stories in the first place.

So what should the objective Western reader do—who is stuck in the middle, does not read Arabic, and cannot independently verify anything—when confronted with absurd news emanating from the Islamic world?

Along with evaluating the evidence as best they can, I suggest they learn to connect-the-dots.  The fact is, there is no end of bizarre anecdotes emanating from the Islamic world.  Saudi Arabia’s highest Islamic authority until he died in 1999, Sheikh Bin Baz—hardly someone to be dismissed as being “far, far out on the nutty fringe”—insisted that the earth was flat and that all scientific evidence otherwise is a Western conspiracy.

In 2007, Egypt’s second highest Islamic authority, Sheikh Ali Gomaa—the same “moderate” Grand Mufti who deems all Christians “infidels”—decreed that drinking the urine of Muhammad was a great blessing.  Likewise, a few weeks ago in Egypt it was revealed that there is now a clinic “healing” people by giving them camel urine to drink—because Muhammad once advised it.

Then there are the notorious breastfeeding fatwas: Several Islamic clerics—including Dr. Izzat Atiya, of Egypt’s Al Azhar University—advised Muslim female workers to “breastfeed” their male co-workers in order to be in each other’s company (more “moderate” clerics say it is not necessary for the man to drink the milk directly from the teat but may use a cup).

The list goes on and on: Several Muslims, including prominent ones, are calling for the reinstitution of sex-slavery, whereby “infidel” women can be bought and sold in markets.   One female Kuwaiti politician even recommends that Russian women seized during the Chechnya jihad be sold as sex-slaves on Muslim markets.

Other prominent clerics insist that Islam allows men to get “married” to baby girls still in the cradle, having sex with them once these children are “capable of being placed beneath and bearing the weight of the men.”

How does one explain these absurd and vile teachings—teachings advocated, not from radicals nor clerics “far, far out on the nutty fringe”—but often from its highest authorities?  Simple: Islamic jurisprudence, which is responsible for defining what is right and wrong in Islam, is fundamentally based on the words of a 7th century Arab whom Muslims venerate as a prophet.  And this man said and did many things that defy modern day sensibilities.

Indeed, he said and did many things that defied the sensibilities of his contemporaries—such as stripping naked and lying with a dead woman to the surprise of her gravediggers (which, incidentally, is cited by the necrophilia fatwas).  Likewise, it was the prophet who first ordered a woman to “breastfeed” a man in order to be in his company.

Here, then, is the rule of thumb: When it comes to determining whether a story from the Muslim world is a hoax or not, first determine whether it is it Islamic or not—whether it has doctrinal or historic support; whether it has some backing in the Quran and/or the hadith.

As it happens, destroying pyramids and pre-Islamic antiquities is very Islamic with a long paper trail; engaging in forbidden acts like sodomy or suicide or lying in order to empower Islam is legitimate according to the Islamic notion of niyya (or intention); crucifying the opponents of Islam is prescribed in the Quran—just as is sex-slavery and pedophilia; drinking urine—whether camels’ or Muhammad’s—is lauded in the hadith.

In short, the true test of whether an Islam-related story is a hoax or not, is not whether it accords with our sensibilities, but whether it accords with Islam’s teachings, many of which are strange if not downright bizarre by Western standards.

    Friends, the dissimulation is on-going and quite pronounced. I'll share with you a personal anecdote…

    About 6 years ago at the 'Guardian', I posted a reference to at least 6 Hadiths documenting Muhammad's pedophelic relationship with 9-year old Aisha. And though these Hadiths can all be found within the 'Sahi' (authoritative) collections of Bukari and Muslim, my comment was pounced on by Muslim apologists. One kept referring to these Hadiths as "dubious", another insisted that their 'isnat' or 'chain of command' was "unreliable".

    So it is….if a Quranic passage embarrasses the sensibilities of Muslims, they simply interpret it in a manner where it doesn't say what it actually says. And when a Hadith is embarrassing, they claim it is inauthentic, all evidence to the contrary.

    Muslims are given theological permission to lie in order to advance Islam (taqqiya). In the Hadith where Muhammad solicits Maslama to murder the post K'ab bin Ashraf, Maslama asks his Prophet if he can "say a false thing in order to deceive (K'ab)". Muhammad answers in the affirmative.

    Islam is a religion built on lies, right down to the "prophet's" claims of divine revelation. No God worth the name would ever have transmitted the monstrous depravities included in the "Holy" Quran.

            In China, people are converting to Christianity at the rate of 10,000 per day. Virtually none are converting to Islam.
            In Europe, Moslems are leaving Islam at the rate of 2,000 per day, although not necessarily converting to Christianity.
            In Africa, Islam is growing only in countries that are already Moslem — i.e. by natural increase. In the rest of Africa, it's Christianity that's growing.

          • Pontotoc Bill

            Doesn't take much in the way of LIES by Islam to make it the fastest growing religion.

            The growth of a religion is NOT what determines whether a religion is correct. Instead, study the religoin and see what fruits result from that religion.

            The fruits of Islam are lying, murder, pillage, theft, pedophillia, and numerous other crimes. Islam is the religion of Satan, a demonic religion.

          • MotherGoose

            Well, you should be. Your "prophet" mohammed (piss be upon him) was nothing more than a mass-murdering, thieving, raping, pedophile who made up a religion to raise an army, enrich himself and provide cover for his sexual deviance. It's beyond me that people can buy into a doctrine based on this crap, though all the inbreeding between double cousins might explain this.

            (To the ACLU, if you're reading this: I'll stop with the "piss be upon him" as soon as you protest the "art" of a crucifix dipped in urine.)

          • pagegl

            That is debatable. There are statistics that show Christianity is growing faster. Other reports show Deism is the fastest growing. I tend to believe that as people know what Islam is really all about they will find some faith that isn't so contrary to the better side of human nature.

          • hhallett

            "… not the Muslims"? Let's see, a Muslim issues a fatwa against America, finances the training (combat, covert operations and flight) of other Muslims, is instrumental in the planning of the 9/11 attacks and claims credit for mass murder after the deed is done. Yeah, deny the truth all you like. It changes nothing.

            "Nearly 50% of the American dream public say that 911 was an inside job"? Based upon this statement, I take it that you're saying that 50% of the American's you've dreamed up say that 9/11 was an inside job. Back in reality, at the height of the conspiracy lunacy in 2006, not more than 36% of respondents to a Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll said it was probable that the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were an "inside job," and that U.S. officials either assisted in the planning and execution or did nothing to stop them. A Zogby poll in 2007 found similar sentiment.

            By last year those numbers had dropped as more and more of the disbelievers came to realize the unassailable truth of the perfidy committed by an organization of devout Muslims. An Angus Reid Public Opinion survey has found 14% of respondents still consider the collapse of Twin Towers "the result of a controlled demolition," while 16% agree that United Airlines Flight 93 was shot down.

            I respect that you love your faith. That is as it should be. But facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. And, in this case, those facts and evidence all point to the man, and his brethren, who planned, paid for, executed and took credit for this act of mass murder.

Or did Mohammed just get spastic and misinterpret what Gabriel said about what Allah supposedly said.

    The only HOAX is Islam itself.
    Not being a religion but a political death cult.

    Islam is built on lies by a liar and promoted by lies by those called apologists.
    If you look carefully at how things are opposed in comments, it seems that when it comes to quoting the Quran, Muslims always reinterpret.
    When quoting the Hadiths it's usually the dhimwitted apologists trying to explain to you, why these Hadiths are unreliable, very few Muslims comment on Hadith-quotes, because they know that you cannot defend the undefendible, so they just ignore it. If you try making them answer, they will always change the subject.

    • jemaasjr

      Islam is not a death cult, it is a warrior cult. The religion is a value system that worked out well for the semi-nomadic and aggressive Arabic tribes that lived in the seventh century. That is why a man has four wives and why it tends to favor men. Aggressive tribal people get the male half of the population killed off in combat, making men more scarce and therefore more valuable. To keep the population numbers it becomes necessary for a man to have multiple wives, and internally, for the wives to bear more of the burden of labor because they are more numerous.

      • PAthena

        See Robert Spencer, Did Mohammed Exist? He argues something similar, that Arab warriors who had conquered from Spain to India, wanted to have a religion for their empire, like Christianity for the Byzantines, and Zoroasterianism for Persia, so they invented their warrior religion with a mythical founder Mohammed with his mythical revelation of the Koran.

        • ebonystone

          Not to detract from Spencer, who is a fine scholar, and who has done important work informing the public of the dangers of the Islamic threat. but he is only the most recent of many scholars of Islam who have questioned the existence of Mohammed, and who have suggested that the Koran was concocted after the great Arab conquests in order to provide the new empire with a "holy" book like those of the Crhistians and zoroastrians.

      • drbukk

        Good point. Mohammed also worked out how to keep the polygamy drones aggressive as well as sexually satisfied. Bestiality and man-boy sex condoned; Enslavement of girls & boys while killing or selling all adults in conquered countries, condoned. Actually kind of brilliant but not a good idea genetically.

        You refused to read about the changes in the quran.

        To me, ISLAM is a foul mouthed demonic religion that has been linked to the Nazis. Remember the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during World War II? He provided support to Hitler, Himmler, and other Nazis. He even raised military units for the Waffen-SS. I suggest you learn the history of the 13th Mountain division of the Waffen-SS, the Handschar. It is notable in that is was the first SS division created from non-Germanic people, from bosnian Muslims with German officers.

        Try again to lie about Islam, little boy.

        Islam and Fascism are identical- except that the indoctrination process is far more rigorous in Islam, as evidenced by your fanaticism. Religion does "poison everything" and is indeed "the surrender of the mind"

  • Schlomotion

    Mr. Ibrahim exemplifies a certain phenomenon: If you bull$%t the public often enough, someone will actually accuse you of issuing bull$%t. At that point you have to move to strike the word "bull$%t" from the dictionary. Mr. Ibrahim has moved to that point. He routinely issues false columns and recycles blowback in the dead same manner as Amir Taheri did on Eliana Benador's dime. Now people are beginning to see through all of his hoaxes and all of his make-up, lipstick, and purple eye shadow. It must be frustrating.

    • Kufar Dawg

      It's interesting to see an "atheist" defending islamofascism, Jihad Joe.

      The only hoaxes people are seeing through are the Al Taqiyya lies of muslimes like you.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        Isn't it cute how the most active trolls defending islam and it's values seem to all claim the very same thing? Atheism. Yet the atheists I meet on the street aren't the vile violent hate filled bigots these trolls are.

        Could it be they might be lying to cover an agenda perhaps?

    • sugar

      It's amusing how you never respond to the written article.
      You either attack the author personally or ramble off on a completely different topic.
      But most narcissist love to hear themselves talk,and they are always correct when they are blathering on about disconnected, irrelevant ,personal opinions.

      • Schlomotion

        The article is written by a man who writes fake articles professionally. The substance of the article is that the man is complaining that his articles get exposed as fake regularly. Sometimes, it is not the argument that is defective. Sometimes, quite simply, it is the human being himself who is defective. It is touching that you want to run cover for someone who is a discredited author of blowback. It makes sense that your angle is that there is some substance in the article that stands on its own merits. That's really all you can do in this case. In any event, Mr. Ibrahim is trying to bait and switch out the American knowledge that he writes hoaxes, for the Arab accusation that he writes hoaxes. That is a failure.

        • Esther

          My goodness, not only are you a narcissist, but you are such a liar. I am a long time reader of Mr. Ibrahim, and I can say that, more than the majority of writers, he actually DOCUMENTS his sources. And here you are saying "he makes it up"??
          Also, his above linked rebuttals are brilliant, and show how those who cry hoax often do so, just like this article says, because they find the stories hard to believe, not because they have evidence to the contrary.

            I KNOW that Islam has been at war with the "infidels" – that includes you – for 1400 years. I have read enough of the Koran to understand the mindset that drives the jihadists. Further, I have dealt with Progressives /Radicals like you for more than four decades, I am well aware of the nihilism that motivates both pathologies . If you are so comfortable that these events are hoaxes I am sure you'd travel to Pak., Yemen, etc to prove it.

          • Schlomotion

            You would think that after "dealing" with Progressives / Radicals "like me" you might get good at it.

    • Duddio

      Schlomo,

      You prove the very point of this article… The author points out the absurdity of Islam and the politics that it engenders, and you cry, "hoax!" But then, teenage girls in Canada are murdered by their Daddy because they dated and wore makeup, a 14-year old girl is shot in the head for standing up to the Taliban for girls to be educated in Afghanistan, Coptic Christians are crucified in front of the President's residence in Egypt, Women are stoned to death for reporting rape in Nigeria, and Muslims threaten butchers who deal in pork in France.

      The horrific actions of islamists are being broadcast worldwide, and you sit here claiming the world is flat because you don't like the messenger. People with a brain can see through your empty claims.

      • Schlomotion

        Of course I "prove" the point of the article. The point of the article is to bemoan the fact that people know Raymond Ibrahim is a huckster and to put these astute readers into the same camp as some Muslim they never heard of who dresses like the Virgin Mary.

        • Kufar Dawg

    There are many of us here in America and abroad that rely on you and others to interpret the news for us coming out the Islamist run countries. This is where we should be getting our intelligence from anyway. We all know that the information they release in English is designed to misinform and trick us. Your work and efforts on keeping us unformed on the truth, Mr. Ibrahim, is truly appreciated. Please keep up the good work, don't let the lying liars get you down and know that there are many people who are behind you.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Thank you Mr. Ibrahim. I admire your bravery and courage.

    Islam unfortunately is not just a hoax. It is something we have to deal with. It is real, and not very popular with most Americans. I do not know one, and from what I have seen, I am glad I don't. I am definitely glad I live in the USA, even though there are a lot of things wrong, there are more things right.

  • Osama Bin Headshot

    Islam is a political / religious movement begun by an illiterate goat herder, promoted by child-molesters and wife-beaters, pressed forward by the blood of mislead misanthropes, and fawned over by the Liberal Elitists and Progressives the world over. What they fail to realize is that when all others have been fed to the crocodile, he will eat them as well.

    Disagreeing with Islam and not submitting to Islam is not Islamophobia. It is common sense.

  • David Olds

    If I had told my someone back in the year 2000 that terrorists might hit the twin towers with passenger jets, they would have laughed me off as a kook. “That could never happen!” We humans in large part rely on our intuition in deciding what is real and what is unreal. Intuition is built from a life's experiences and we had no experience with planes hitting buildings. This is why people just “know” something is true or untrue without evidence or analytical thought. “Oh that’s silly!” One of the space shuttle disasters had similar causes in using intuition over logic and evidence. “That could never happen! Just launch. Everything will be fine.” Ask someone if they think Europe could become Muslim majority nation. “That could never happen!” even as the Islamic population continues to grow. Things do happen and things do change whether our intuition says they can or not. Nations rise and nations fall. It would have been hard for me to imagine Freedom of Speech being challenged in this country even a few years ago, but here we are.

    • Kufar Dawg

        They are trying, but the govts their are now extremly nervous that the natives are getting restless and the grumblings are now turning into open defiance.

  • David Olds

    Bush was using intuition when he "knew" the people of Iraq would celebrate our arrival. Obama in similar fashion decided that if we are nice to the Islamists they will change their opinion of America. People who are too arrogant to question their intuition shouldn't be president! Sometimes a president after four years of failure will gain wisdom and change course. Not this one. He views Islam through rose colored glasses. Also I think he has a dangerous emotional attachment to Islam.

  • BLJ

    What else can one expect from a gutter religion?

  • Peace of the action

    I think it's worth considering that a Muslim could have been something else, for example a Christian. It depends on who got to them first. We all want the same things, happiness, security, good health, etc. If you could look into the life history of a Muslim you would most likely find that he or she hard been indoctrinated from an early age. Madrasahs are very widespread here and I don't see that many young people get exposed to alternative views. It's all so unsophisticated and worn out. What pisses me off is that I have to deal with it all again.

  • guest

    mr ibrahim says the truth. just ask those who lived in the middle east for a few years , enough to see the madness and rabid violence. moreover its all in the religious books theyfollow word for word. all the violence is there. buy the books in an english version and verify with your own eyes.

      I used to know a Lebanese Christian, he was one tough, smart SOB. He stated that most of the muslimes he knew back in Lebanon were hypocrites, but publicly they all acted the part of the typical Jew hating islamofascist ape. They never stood up for him when he was fired from his job for being Christian either, or against the persecution of Lebanese Christians by their fellow scuzzlums.

      You're being totally ignorant. 911 cannot be an inside job. Only a fool would believe this. And you people ILOVEISLAM took this opportunity to chance upon America for this piece of absurdity just like you took every opportunity to chance upon anything that you can find, as what had happened in Benghazi which took four American lives. I hope you do a little self-examination as to why the people of the world hate Islam. If anybody who is being brand as arrogant is none other than you and your people…who will not in any way accept criticism (so as to learn and reform) but as proud and as self righteous as ever. Why should people be jealous of you guys? Of what? Of your backwardness? No way ma'am! Or could it be the other way round that you people are jealous of us because we're a more progressive society?

    Maybe the doubters will believe PBS. A year or more ago I watched a Frontline episode called "the dancing girls of ( some) city" in Afghanistan, but they weren't dancing girls, they were young boys dressed up as girls, purchased from their dirt poor families, taught to dance like girls then sent to the battlefields and used as sex objects for the military leaders. It was sickening and shocking to watch. I'm sure you can find the episode and watch it yourselves. Islam is an invention straight from hell, like Nazism.

    • sugar

      The bacha bazi (dancing boys) are popular in Afghanistan and Pakistan .Iran and India also has them.
      Many are kidnapped or sold by poor parents into being "female" dancers and sex slaves to men.They are a status symbol and common in the military .
      When the men/ soldiers tire of them,they are usually killed.

          The hidden agenda is the close contact and very close relationship between Hitler and the Nazis with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during the run-up to World War II and during the war.

          Muslims were entered into Waffen-SS divisions to fight with the Nazis. Example is the 13th Mountain division of the Waffen-SS, the Handschar.

          Try again, and leave the Nazi remarks out as the Muslims are the most like Nazis today.

    Islam is an omen on Christianity, to cease defaming and vilifying Jews. Islam is emulating the early church and its residue is seen in many places: the corruption of the Balfour, the White Paper which largely contributed to the holocaust and serial 2-state demands every 50 years in the sameland. Aside from omens there are also clear signs: instead of Israel wbing overwheling my Islamist terrorist regimes Europe is becoming Eurabia. Of course, there are also a strong group of Christian Zionists who have now seen the light and dropped the darkness.

    The Balfour should be restored and Christianity & Islam must cease being 'subject to Jews' belief systems. Let 2,000 years of horror come to an end.

    • kufar dawg

      2000 years of horror eh? The "early Church" were the persecuted, especially by Romans. I'd argue Yeshua himself never promoted antisemitism. How many genocides have been committed by Christians, in the name of Christianity over the last 200 years? How many by muslimes, in the name of islam?

    I am glad that people are waking up to what islam is all about. Ironically, we still have academia, politicians, the media and shamefully – too many of our own religious leaders – thinking that islam is peaceful and help moslems wage jihads against us.

    Read their sharia – slavery is ok, warring against the non-moslems just because they are unbelievers is not only ok it is encouraged due to allah 'rewarding' them with its 'sex orgy in the sky' and gluttony if they kill or subjugate us. And jihad can be waged violently and with terror, but also via the pen/word (all their forms of deception), and with their zakat – yes, part of zakat is REQUIRED to fund their violent jihadists. The moslems acting like a victim, being eternally outraged, etc are just some more tactics to wage jihad. All meant to confuse and deceive us about what islam is.__The non-moslem is called a pig, an ape, and even dirt in their koran. It seems they think their allah created us just for the sociopathic pleasure to abuse in any way they can think or to kill. __Read sharia – and you will know what islam is all about because reading their koran is like reading a book written by a mentally disturbed sociopath.

  • R_not

    moslems are not outraged that their own texts tell us what sort of perverted prophet they follow but they are outraged that we dare to repeat it and are disgusted by it… and mock islam because of it. We are supposed to know our place and follow sharia – according to sharia laws. We are supposed to be subject to islam and its followers and even looking at them crosseyed will get us killed – according to sharia.

  • Kevin

    No, this is just more bull*%^ from yet another online Islam-hater. Really, folks, use your common sense. Usually (but not always), if something sounds fantastic, it almost always is, just like the vicious slander that came out this about Egyptian Muslims crucifying Egyptian Copts naked in front of the presidential palace in Cairo. Common sense immediately brings a few things to mind: if this really happened in front of the presidential palace, thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people would have seen it; consequently, it would have been reported; also, Coptic Christians would have rioted in the streets in large numbers if it had happened, but there were no such large public demonstrations at the time. Also, when I checked out the source of the story (if I remember, it was an article in World Net Daily), it relied on unnamed, unconfirmed sources. It, in a word, was utter bull#$%&.

  • doruss03

    By the grace of God Islam is a hoax. The only way to create peace in the world is to fight islam till non of it resist. Millions of people die every year because of islam. If there was no islam there would be no-more stoning and most other things would be solved such as killing Christians. It is known that in all western nations it is living in freedom, in all Eastern nations it is daily war including suicide wars. To define islam it actually means JIHAD.
