The Excessive Kindness of Islam!

Symbol of Islamic Tolerance!

Fellow readers, the time has come again to further explore the most beneficent, most gracious and the most merciful faith on this earth. What could I be talking about? Islam of course.

In this article I shall write about how the Muslims have blessed the whole world with their loot, raid, brutal torture, plunderings, inhuman rapes, etc. I will also cite from the Holy Quran and the hadith which have supported these messengers of the all "merciful" Allah.

As long as the Muslims loot and raid the kafirs (non believers of Islam), it is completely justified. Ghazzua is an Arabic word for raid as well as killing and enslaving the kafirs. From this word the term Ghazi is derived which means honorable warrior of Islam who has killed many kafirs.

The distribution of the loot or booty, which includes the men, women and children, is done as prescribed by the well defined regulations stated in the Quran and the hadith. Four fifths of the loot is to be shared by the barbaric, lecherous invaders who took part in the heinous plunderings while one fifth is reserved for the great Prophet or the Caliph and in their absence to the mullah who is in charge.

Such loots and raids were considered shameful acts in Pre-Islamic Arabia. But Mohammed revealed to his followers that since he was the last prophet for all time to come such raids were now sanctioned by Allah. Thus he legalized these inhuman acts of raid, plunder, loot and rape.

Let us closely examine the pattern that these barbaric invaders followed all over the world. This pattern is written down in the Quran; practiced, perfected and prescribed by the prophet in his own lifetime and closely followed by the Caliphs later. Even in present time, this pattern is followed by all Muslim leaders who aspire for name and fame in this life and houris (beautiful virgin women) hereafter.

The pattern is:

1. Invade the lands of the infidels.
2. Massacre as many infidel men, women and children as they like after winning a victory
3. Capture the survivors as slaves and confine the women in their harems as slave girls
4. Plunder every place and person for war, booty, a fifth of which (including the slaves) went to the Caliph or some other religious heads.
5. Demolish the places of worship of the infidels and build mosques in their places.
6. Defile and desecrate the deities and other symbols of the infidels' religion by throwing them into public squares or making into steps leading to the prayer area of the Muslims.

Let us again start with His Holiness Mohammed himself. In 627 A.D he raided the Jewish tribe of Qurayza. The Jews were defeated in the fight and many prisoners were taken. They were either sold or assassinated in the name of merciful Allah. In one place alone, approximately 800 Jews were beheaded in cold blood. In 629 A.D after the battle of Khaybar, and the defeat of the Jews, the same play was enacted. All the Jews were put to the sword. The raids undertaken by the prophet and methods followed became the guidelines for the Caliphs and other leaders who followed him.

Caliph Umar I
The reign of terror by caliph Umar still horrifies the present day Iranians. They dress themselves up in festive clothing on the death anniversary of this caliph, even to this day. Caliph Umar who was also one of the many father-in-laws of Mohammed, attained leadership of Islam two years after Mohammed's death. His reign of terror rocked Iran, Irag, Egypt and Syria. His most dastardly deed was the destruction of the great library in Alexandria. His order to Amir Amron ibn al-Ass (rightly named) is preserved as follows:

"As for the books you mentioned here is my reply. If their content is in accordance with the book of Allah, we may do without them, for in that case the book of Allah more than suffices. If on the other hand, they contain matter not in accordance with the book of Allah, there can be no need to preserve them. Proceed then and destroy them."

Such brilliance and such logic can only be found in the followers of all merciful Allah.

The 700,000 scrolls, some of them works a thousand or more years old, many on Mathematics, science and philosophy were destroyed. Ibn al-Kifti wrote that, "it took 6 months to burn all that mass of material."

Where Alexandria lost only one of its precious libraries, India lost millions of books on Mathematics, Astronomy, Philosophy and other Sciences of the Vedic and Buddhist periods. For example, the famous Sanskrit College of Vishaldev in the capital of Gujrat was destroyed by the eunuch Qutubuddin Aibak in the year 1196 A.D. The famous Buddhist university of Nalanda had the same fate in the year 1200 AD when Mohammed Bakhtiyar Khilji attacked the township and massacred the harmless Buddhist monks and violated the nuns. In recent years, the Pakistani Muslim army attacked the then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). 3,000,000 Bengali Hindus were brutally murdered. The first attack was on Dhaka University. The women students were not spared. They were raped and murdered mercilessly.

Khair Ed-Din
In 1516, the Emir of Algiers, Selim Bin Teumin, weary of Spanish interference sought the aid of Khair Ed-din, a Turkish sea robber and one of the Barbarossa brothers. Another brother, Arouj had the Emir assassinated. Khair Ed-Din was named as Viceroy by Selim I, Sultan of Turkey.

Khair laid siege to the Spanish fortress on the island of Penon and wrested it from Christian hands. Martin Vagas, the Spanish commander was given the choice between death or conversion to Islam. He chose the former, whereupon he was flogged to death, his dead body dragged through the street, cut into pieces and thrown into the sea. With the help of Khair Ed-Din the Muslim pirates were secure in Algiers for three centuries. Ten percent of the booty went to the Bey of the day. The captives of the Barbary corsairs were able to ransom themselves if they had money and many were freed on accepting Islam. The others were sold like cattle at an auction and many died from fever, starvation or the lash. Women, however were taken into harems as concubines of their captors.

One story recorded by a Spanish monk, Haedo, of the sixteenth century concerns a young Arab. He had been captured by the Spanish, had embraced Christianity and been baptized as Geronimo. He was recaptured in 1569 by the Barbary pirates and taken to Algiers. When threats and pleadings failed to make him apostate back to Islam, Geronimo was condemned to death. Bound hand and foot, he was thrown into a mould in which a block of concrete was about to be made and the liquid concrete poured in upon him. The block containing his body was built into the FORT OF THE TWENTY FOUR HOURS in Algiers.

Bricking up human beings is a common punishment as prescribed by the Quran. In India, the children of the Sikh Gurus were bricked up because they did not accept Islam. Akbar, the Moughal emperor jealous of his son's affair with Anarkali had her bricked up as well.

Piali Pasha
In 1560 a Turkish squadron under Piali Pasha and the corsair Dargut annihilated the Spanish fleet at Tunisia and took the Spanish fort of Djerba. All 5000 prisoners were massacred and a huge mound of bones six meters high was formed. The mound was called Skull Fort and was in existence for nearly 3 centuries.

Abdul Hamid II
In 1894, the sultan of the Ottoman empire Abdul Hamid reacted violently against the Armenian Nationalists living in Eastern Turkey. In Sasun, the Armenians refused to accept a 100 percent increase in rents. 3000 rebels were killed, women raped and mutilated and babies bashed against rocks. The pogrom spread: in Trebizond a 1000 odd Armenians were killed, in Arabkir 2800, in Urfa 8000, plus 3000 burnt alive in a Cathedral where they hoped they would be safe. In August 1896, bands of Turks patrolled the streets of Constantinople killing over 5000 Armenians. In All, the total toll from 1894 to 1896 is estimated at 100,000 non combatants killed, 50,000 dead from starvation, 40,000 forcibly converted to Islam and 100,000 driven into exile.

Fahri Koroturk
Fahri Koroturk was the right wing Muslim President of Turkey and commander of the armed forces when the decision was made to invade Cyprus. The number of Turks on the Island was about 150,000 while 503,000 were Greek. At 5 A.M, Saturday 20th July 1974 The Turkish army, Navy and airforce attacked Cyprus. Turkey used weapons given to it by the United States and NATO, employing the Quranic injunctions to accept help from the infidels but to remember that Jihad is the ultimate aim.

" Let Not the believers take for...helpers unbelievers... Except by way of precaution...But remember the final goal is to Allah " (III/28)

Prior to the invasion the percentage of the Turks was 18 percent but they demanded an area of northern Cyprus equal to 38 percent of the whole Island and that the region be vacated within 24 hours. On the same day, the second and the more terrifying phase of the Turkish invasion began. Greek houses and businesses were handed over to the Turkish Cypriots. Greek villages and towns were bombed and napalmed indiscriminately. But in cities with mixed populations, targets were selected; for example Christian churches, hospitals and schools. The final toll was 4000 men, women and children dead, 1619 missing. 40 percent of the island, corresponding to 65 percent of the arable land, 60 percent of all its water resources, 70 percent of its mineral wealth, 70 percent of its industries and 80 percent of tourist installation came under the Muslim rule. The Turks brought in new settlers while 220,000 Greeks had to flee to the south. In all, one third of the Greek population of Cyprus became refugees in their own country.

Idi Amin
Idi Amin, a ruthless dictator of Uganda now has asylum in Saudi Arabia. As a true Muslim he hates the Jews. His support is for his Muslim brothers--the Palestinian terrorists. In 1972 he sent a cable to the United Nations congratulating the Black September terrorists for the murder of Israeli sportsmen at the Olympic games in Munich. In the same cable he praised Hitler for destroying over six million Jews. On 3rd of July 1976 the hijacked Flight 139 was diverted to Entebbe airport just out of Kampala. Amin was sympathetic with the hijackers and he permitted additional terrorists to reinforce them--another sign of a true Muslim. His own 80-100 troops at the scene had their guns trained on the 103 Jewish passengers in support of the 10 terrorists who threatened to execute the Jews from dawn, Sunday 4th of July.

He used cunning as well as ruthlessness. Rather than take on the power of the Roman Catholic Church, he had Archbishop Luwum killed in a "traffic accident." Apart from the army, his main organ of suppression was based at Nakasero, which was innocuously named the State Research Bureau. At Nakasero, some of the tortures were mind-boggling. People had nails hammered into their skulls, limbs were broken, flames played onto the skin, broken soft drink bottles rammed into elbows and knees, sisal ropes used for slow strangulation, whips, knives, etc. All these tortures no doubt were derived from the Quran by this truly devout Muslim.

In October 1978 Amin invaded Tanzania. At first his forces did well, looting, raping and killing as they went. By January 1979 however the Tanzanian troops, backed by 2000 anti-Amin Ugandans, crossed the Ugandan border and all resistance crumbled. After Idi's exit, the count of the dead and missing people was put at 280,000!

Yasser Arafat
Yasser Arafat is another Muslim "saint" who has committed and is committing horrific crimes as the leader of the PLO in the name of the all "merciful" Allah. I shall list down below only a few of the saintly deeds of Yasser and his PLO troops. But the alert reader should be able to estimate the extent of their other noble and saintly deeds.

During World War II some leading Muslims including Haji Amin al-Husseini worked for the Nazis in Germany, calling for a Jihad against Britain. Amin was the grand mufti of Jerusalem and Arafat's uncle. Hitler wanted to barter some Jews for the return of German nationals but the Muslims convinced him to send 8000 Jewish children to the death camps instead of to Palestine.

On May 15, 1948 the British withdrew from Palestine and the state of Israel was declared. Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria sent troops in but were unable to dislodge the Israelis.

With the aid of other Palestinians Yasser Arafat set up a Fatah, which is Koranic for opening the gates of glory. Fatah was independent of the Arab states and of ideology. Its sole aim was to liberate Palestine by armed struggle. Fatah's first targets were the water projects of Israel. One bomb exploded killing seven Israelis. By 1966 attacks had moved to homes and kibbutzim.

On March 18, 1968 a busload of children hit a mine near Eliat. Two children were killed and twenty-seven injured. When the Israelis retaliated the Palestinians received help from Jordan and the Israelis had to retreat. Even though more Muslim lives were lost than Jewish, Yasser claimed it as a victory, the first ever over Israel. Thousands of new recruits were added to Fatah's fighting forces. Terror escalated; more bombings took place. 13 people, including some Arabs, were killed when an old refrigerator exploded in Jerusalem. Another 15 were killed when an old car exploded in the market place of Jerusalem.

PLO's and Yasser's saintly deeds continue on to this day.

I can go on and on about the brave deeds of these truly devout Muslims. And I promise to write more on this matter in my weekly posts. I have not mentioned of the tortures done in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, the persecution of the Bahais by Iran's Nasiri-Din-Shah, the well known sickly pig Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran, the atrocities done in Sudan by Sayyid Muhammad Ahmad Ibn Abdullah, persecution of religious minorities (particularly Christians) in Egypt by Umar II and Husan Al Banna, persecution of Assyrian Christians, the plight of Hindus in Kashmir, India, etc., etc., etc.

Hundreds of books can be written on the atrocities committed by the Muslims in India on Hindus and Buddhists--thousands of temples, books, and other scriptures destroyed, women raped, tortured and murdered, men boiled, burned, skinned and sawed alive, children cut into pieces, etc. Yes, these Muslims are the proud doers of these utterly inhuman acts in the name of Allah and for the 72 houris and 28 young boys they shall receive in Paradise according to the Quran. In my future postings, I shall elaborate on these Islamic brutalities committed in India.

Let us take a look at the few verses from the Quran which directly support these saintly deeds of the Muslims detailed above.

Verses from the Koran

LIX/5-6: "Whatsoever palm trees ye cut down or left standing on their roots, it was by by Allah's leave, in order that He might confound the evil-livers. And that which Allah gave as spoil unto His messenger from them, ye urged not any horse or riding-camel for the sake thereof, but Allah giveth His messenger lordship over whom He will. Allah is Able to do all things."

The above verse clearly states that the followers of Allah should cut down the palm trees as they provide shelter and food to the kafirs. In these verses, note the insidious way in which Mohammed has hidden the real meaning of the words. First Allah says that don't take away the camels and horses of the conquered, but the sentence that follows immediately after this contradicts Allah's "mercy". Because Allah gives the Muslim Invader complete rights over the conquered, so he is free to kill, eat, abuse and maim the animals or the people who have been made captive.

XLVIII/20-21: "Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men's hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path. And other (gain), which ye have not been able to achieve, Allah will compass it. Allah is able to do all things."

In the above verse, Allah is bribing the believers to make wars with the Kafirs. He promises them a lot of booty, which they will gain from these wars. He has also said that He will magically stop the kafirs from striking back and He will guide the believers on the right path (the path of killing, plundering, looting and raping).

VIII/41: "And know that whatever ye take as spoils of war, lo! a fifth thereof is for Allah, and for the messenger and for the kinsman (who hath need) and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, if ye believe in Allah and that which we revealed unto Our slave on the Day of Discrimination, the day when the two armies met. And Allah is able to do all things."

Here we see another case of bribery by Allah. Four fifths of the loot goes to invaders and the remaining one fifth goes to Mohammed or the Caliphs or any other Muslim leaders in their absence. Here Allah tries to bring out His kindness again by telling the Muslims to give to the poor. And how much do the poor get? They get from the one fifth of the loot and only after Mohammed and other religious leaders have taken their share. And don't forget where this loot is coming from--Killing and murdering the kafirs. What a genuine Robin Hood Allah is!!!

VIII/65: "O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred steadfast they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence."

The above verse is self-explanatory. It clearly orders the Muslim to kill the non-believers. It also clearly says that anyone who doesn't believe in Islam has no intelligence!

VIII/67-69: "It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise. Had it not been for the ordinance of Allah which had gone before, an awful doom had come upon you on account of what ye took. Now enjoy what ye have won, as lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

Here Allah is clearly instructing the Prophet that hold no prisoners, kill them all as they are criminals for not believing in Allah. The Prophet must do these deeds because Allah desires that the Muslims enjoy the Houris and young boys in Jannat (Heaven). The above verses were revealed when the prophet had decided to spare the lives of the prisoners taken at Badr and hold them to ransom, against the wish of Umar who would have executed them for their past crime. The prophet took the verses as a reproof, and they are generally understood to mean that no mercy ought to have been given in that first battle. Such is the nature of the all merciful Allah !!

VIII/73: "And those who disbelieve are protectors one of another. -If ye do not so, there will be confusion in the land, and great corruption."

VIII/12: "When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying:) I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then maim them in every limb and smite of them each finger."

The above verse clearly depicts how Allah prescribes the Muslims to torture and kill.

IX/5: "Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

This verse clearly says that Muslims should try to convert non-Muslims forcibly. If they are unable to do so, then they should either kill the kafirs or make their lives miserable.

IX/73: "Oh Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey's end."

LXIX/30-37: "(It will be said): Take him and fetter him and then expose him to hell-fire And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is 70 cubits. Lo! he used not to believe in Allah the Tremendous, And urged not on the feeding of the wretched, Therefore hath he no lover here this day, Nor any food save filth Which none but sinners eat."

This verse describes the recipe for torture as revealed by Allah. This recipe was applied in India when the Sikh Gurus were murdered. It was also applied elsewhere in the world as I have mentioned above in this article.

V/33-34: "The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, merciful."

This verse gives Muslims another recipe for torture. Here Allah has taken care of the details in the procedure.

XXII/19-22: "These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling fluid will be poured down their heads. Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; and for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning."

Yet another recipe for torture!! Need I say more?

LXXVI/4: "Lo! We have prepared for disbelievers manacles and carcans and a raging fire."

Quotes From The Hadiths

Sahih Al Bukhari, 216: "I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no God but Allah & that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah & until he performs the prayers & pays the Zakat."

The quote above clearly states that Allah has ordered the Prophet to torture the Kafirs until they submit to Islam. And by ordering Muhammad he is ordering each and every Muslim to do so, as Mohammed is the true model, which every Muslim must strive for.

Sahih Muslim, 217: "Verily Allah has prescribed proficiency in all things. Thus if you kill, KILL WELL, & if you slaughter, SLAUGHTER WELL. Let each one of you sharpen his blade."

Need I explain the above quote??

The above Quranic verses and quotes from Hadith have clearly shown us once again that Islam is a religion for mindless, empty headed barbarians who are interested in nothing but money, power, sex & destruction. What I am trying to get across here is that the foundation of Islam (Quran itself) was deviously brought into existence by Mohammed and company, so that heinous acts like rape, plunder, loot, torture, and murder are justifiable. One sees evidence of this not only in History, but in present time as well.
