It seems that if an imam of a local mosque stands up and asks his congregation to go out and kill a kafir (unbeliever) they will go out and kill themselves an unbeliever.  That by the way may also include fellow Moslems who may not be part of that sect, because different sects within Islam are just as happy to attack each other.    Whilst I appreciate that this cannot be said of all Moslems we can say that the rise of militant Islam is making this an all too common sight.  Why is there so much rage and anger connected to it?  Where does it come from? 

The desert Arabs who lagged behind [in fighting] will say to you (Muhammad): ‘We were engaged in (looking after) our flocks and our families.’ We have prepared for them a Blazing Fire       Qur’an 48:11

Is this the words of tolerence peace and reconciliation?

Allah’s Apostle said, ‘There is no migration after the Conquest of Mecca, but only Jihad. When you are called by the Muslim ruler for Jihad fighting, you should go forth immediately, responding to the call       Bukhari:V4B52N311

A suicide bomber killed 53 people in an apparent sectarian attack in southern Iraq yesterday casting a pall over the climax of a Shiite pilgrimage that draws hundreds of thousands from around the world. The attack on Shiite devotees on the outskirts of the port city of Basra, which left 137 wounded, came with Iraq mired in a political row that has pitted the Shiite-led government against the main Sunni-backed bloc and stoked sectarian tensions less than a month after US forces completed their pullout.

The violence was the latest in a spate of attacks against Shiite pilgrims in the two weeks leading to the conclusion of Arbaeen, which marks 40 days after the Ashura anniversary commemorating the slaying of Imam Hussein, one of Shiite Islam’s most revered figures, by the armies of the caliph Yazid in 680 AD.

The bombing killed 53 people and wounded 137, according to Riyadh Abdulamir, head of Basra province’s health department. He said women and children were among the casualties, but did not give further details.

The death toll was the highest since attacks on Shiites in Baghdad and southern Iraq killed 70 people on December 5.”

“I saw dozens of women and children among the wounded”

It would seem even Moslems come under the chop if they fail to respond to the call to fight. Which may be why when the local Imam calls, hundreds take to the streets. They do so because they have no choice.

James 3: 11  Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter?

Pro 10:12  Hatred  stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins

Pro 10:18 He that hideth  hatred [with] lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, [is] a fool

In a more recent incident at an American Base in Afghanistan after the accidental almost burning of some Korans the Afghans went on a riot.

A joint investigation by senior Afghan and US military officials has concluded that although mistakes were made when troops at Bagram airbase, near Kabul, had burned copies of the Qur’an and other religious literature along with piles of waste paper, there was no intent to desecrate the Islamic religious texts……….

Barack Obama and other US officials have apologized for the incident on 20 February, which triggered six days of riots across Afghanistan. The apologies, which described the incineration as accident, have failed to quell the anger in the country, although the violent protests that killed more than 30 Afghans and six US troops have subsided…….

Now if a Christian Pastor stood up and demanded the same thing there is a good chance that most people will assume it’s a joke. We can certainly guarantee there would be no lynched mob baying for someone’s life.  So the question is where is the hatred coming from?  The fact that Moslems appear to be indoctrinated with a concept that if your not of their particular sect, everyone outside is just vermin,.  When minds have been so indoctrinated to look on others in this manner, killing such people becomes the next logical step.  Unbelievers simply are viewed as a sub species. Unbeliever’s life has no value to Allah, so it has no value to them.  Now this is not the only time we have seen such thinking.  Communism fascism has had its counterparts as well.  If you not one of them then your against them.   Now as a Christian our motivation is Christ and his word.  We are motivated by a love for others.  So killing is the last thing because it will put people beyond the pale of salvation.  But to have a religion which is so volatile especially on the orders of their prophet.  Who by his own words demands that we should terrorise the unbelievers, steal their property as booty, and make their captives sex slaves. 

We reject you. Hostility and hate have come between us forever, unless you believe in Allah only Qur’an 60:4

The Bible teaches 

1 cor 13: 1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, (LOVE)  I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal

1 John 4: 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Yet the Koran says :

Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?” Qur’an:4:77

I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘Allah guarantees that He will admit the Muslim fighter into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and booty Bukhari V4B52N46

It is by comparing scripture like these that really shows that the God of the Bible and allah are very much different Gods.  How can you love others when you are continually being called to hate fight and kill ? 

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides…their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly.” Qur’an 5:33

One of the most remarkable aspects from listening to the many testimonies of Moslems who come to know the real Jesus is the love they come to experience.  They found nothing like it in Islam.  There is a love being poured in there that overwhelms them.  This is something new.  Out goes all that hatred for others.  Out goes all the anger and the desire to hurt others.  Christianity shouts out LOVE LOVE LOVE .  Islam is Kill KILL KILL  !! 

Lo, those who disbelieve will be informed by proclamation: ‘Verily Allah’s abhorrence is more terrible than your aversion to yourselves. Allah’s hatred of you is terrible, seeing that you were called to the Faith [of submission] and you refused.’   Qur’an 40:10

Compare :

Jhn 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life

Is this the words of the same GOD, I don’t think so?

Christianity seeks to transform a person to become a better human being; Loving patient peacefulness; Kindness; Faithfulness; having joy unspeakable and full of glory; Love for truthfulness.   Such qualities seem to be very absent among Moslems.  In fact they seem to have is the very antipathy to what God wants to produce within the lives of Christians.

Moslems believe that by having larger families they will soon overpopulate the world with Moslems.  But there lives also within itself the seeds of their own destruction as various factions will compete for supremacy.  God’s judgement always falls when man kind gets to the place where there is no other option.  Either God steps in and changes things or man will wipe himself out through his own violence and wickedness.  The eventual destruction of mankind for the sake of it is not what God wants.    When a suicide bomber straps a bomb to himself and blows people up, That includes Moslem as well as none Moslem.

I would order someone to collect firewood and another to lead prayer. Then I would burn the houses of men who did not present themselves at the compulsory prayer and prostration     Bukhari:V1B11N617

Where is patience or love in this verse?  Burn someone’s house down because he missed the prayer meeting?

 It takes a special kind of conditioning.  His thought process has been altered.  Again if we go back to the Koran and the hadiths it is made clear that they are to love death more than they are to love life. 

Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.” [Another translation reads:] “Warfare is ordained for you      Qur’an:2:216

Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah and have gone out for Jihad (holy fighting). Some have completed their vow to extreme and have been martyred fighting and dying in His Cause, and some are waiting, prepared for death in battle.”     Qur’an:33:22

Allah has purchased the believers, their lives and their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise). They fight in Allah’s Cause, and they slay and are slain; they kill and are killed Qur’an:9:111

Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s Cause with full force of numbers and weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars. By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior (which means only Allah has the right to be worshiped), and Islam is propagated. By abandoning Jihad Islam is destroyed and Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape from this duty, or does not fulfill this duty, dies as a hypocrite.” Noble Qur’an:2:190 Footnote:

Yet Jesus made it clear that his kingdom was not of this world

Jhn 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

A physical kingdom was something that was no longer to be part of Gods plan.  He was now taking his people out from such an established context.  His new kingdom would be a spiritual kingdom which would cross national boundaries.

But it would also seem that Islam has also made it clear that war is the only way to establish Islam.  Kill and be killed or else.  Those Moslems who are seen to hesitate in fighting will themselves be killed.  Moslems will often look to the Old Testament as proof that murdering innocent is justified.  But forget that Israel’s wars were for the most part defensive in nature.  They in their ignorance refuse to realise that in some instances God was patient for over 400 years before the wickedness of certain nations made it a necessity to judge them.  How long did Muhammad wait before he started his own little crusade against those who refuse to accept Islam?

History records that Islam’s war was not defensive but a rallying cry for the conquest of the world.  Moslems for the most part reject the New Testament which would condemn such actions in favour of a new and better way of doing things. They continue to be locked into a war like intolerance of anything which will not conform itself to their own extremes.  As such they must continue to oppress even their own fellow Moslems.  It was not by coincidence that so many in the last generation fled such mad imans in the hope of freedom from such intolerance.  Many only wanted to live in peace as moderate Moslems and they were welcomed as such.  Since then the cry of militancy has grown, and once again moderate Moslems live in fear.
