What Muslims and the media hope you never find out about Islam
Since the attacks of September 11, dozens of books have been rushed to market purporting to "explain" the religion in whose name the terrorists acted. Most of them strike a common theme: "true" Islam - as opposed to the "fundamentalist" variety of the hijackers - is a "religion of peace" that promotes charity, tolerance, freedom, and culture no less than "true" Christianity.
Such a viewpoint, argues Serge Trifkovic, foreign affairs editor of Chronicles magazine, is not only false but dangerous, since it blinds to the true nature of the enemy that threatens us. Moreover, it betrays a hidden agenda: to discredit Christianity and the West by comparison to a sanitized, idealized Islam that bears no resemblance to its actual teachings or history.
To correct this, Trifkovic gives us the unvarnished, "politically incorrect" truth about Islam, including the shocking facts about its founder, Mohammed; its rise through bloody conquest; its sanctioning of theft, deceit, lust and murder; its persecutions of Christians, Jews, Hindus and other "infidels;" its cruel mistreatment of women; the colossal myth of its cultural "golden age;" its commitment to global conquest by any means necessary; the broad sweep of the military, political, moral, and spiritual struggle that faces us; and what we must do if we wish to survive.
The details and documentation for hundreds of "politically incorrect" facts about Islam:
The Koran sanctions pillage, looting, ransom, and the rape of captive women as an incentive to join in jihad or "holy war."
Mohammed kept one-fifth of all spoils of war for himself.
The Koran allows a man to have up to four wives at any one time. He can divorce a wife by simply saying so 3 times.
Mohammad had as many as 25 wives. One was six when they married; he was 54. He consummated the marriage when she was 9.
At least 27 people were murdered on Mohammed's orders.
Mohammed allowed temporary marriage "for three nights" or more, so that soldiers in the field could "marry" prostitutes.
The Koran assures the Muslim the right to own slaves by purchasing them or as a bounty of war. Mohammad had dozens.
Almsgiving and mercy is commended in Islam but the beneficiaries have to be Muslims only.
In Islam, the definition of what is "right" or "just" is not fixed, but changeable by divine decree enabling the most heinous sins and crimes to be declared "the will of Allah."
The joys and glories of the Islamic "paradise" are tangible and sensual and include sex with virgins and young boys.
As Mohammad progressed from visionary and teacher to warlord and ruler, his style and message became more depraved, violent and intolerant. It is these later "revelations" that are considered definitive by Islamic authorities when they conflict with earlier ones often cited for Western consumption.
The Crusades were a belated military response to three centuries of Muslim aggression against Christian lands and peoples.
Islam divides the world into the House of Islam (where Islam rules) and the House of War (where it doesn't). The two are permanently at war; there may be temporary truces, but peace will come only upon the completion of global conquest.
When Muslims are a minority community, the Koran permits them to adopt a peaceful attitude to deceive their neighbors, until they feel strong enough to dispense with the pretense.
The massacres perpetrated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger in sheer numbers than the Holocaust.
Muslim persecution of Christians has caused suffering and death for millions over 13 centuries and continues today.
The myth of Islam's "tolerance" of religious minorities contradicts its teaching, history, and present reality.
Islam's "golden age" was parasitic on the Christian cultures and peoples it conquered, and ended when it "killed the host."
In 1993, Saudi Arabia 's supreme religious authority declared that the world is flat, and that anyone who disagrees is an infidel to be punished.
Like Communism, Islam cannot foster prosperity, and is always reliant on plunder or unearned wealth (e.g., from oil).
Islam recognizes no distinction between temporal and divine authority; the only "legitimate" government is a theocracy.
America 's "ally" Saudi Arabia remains the most intolerant Islamic regime in the world, where the practice of any religion besides Islam is as strictly prohibited as in Mohammed's day.
The first imam, to deliver a Muslim prayer for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1991, declared in 1997 that Muslims will eventually elect the president and replace the constitutional government with an Islamic caliphate.
