The Satanic Verses is a topic that is quite uncomfortable for Muslims to speak about. In an effort to convert the people of Mecca, he wrote that the three traditional Arabic Goddesses were to be worshipped as well as Allah. With the backing of the newly minted verses of the Quran, Muhammad welcomed the people of Mecca with open arms and great joy to his religion. However, those who already followed the Prophet bridled. How was it possible to worship four Gods when Muhammad had said that there is only one God? As dissent began to spread within the ranks of Islam, Muhammad backed down.
The Prophet said that he had been misled by Satan and that the verses calling for the worship of Uzza, Lat, and Manat were false and inspired by Satan who designed them to mislead the faithful from the true path. Then there are the assassinations.
From the poetess who wrote unflattering lines about the Prophet to the father of one of the faithful, Muhammad sanctioned their demise. He even said that deceit and lies in the service of Islam were acceptable and these tactics helped to move the killers into position. Then there are the tribes of Jews who paid the Jizya and willingly became second class citizens in order to get Islam's protection and who were betrayed by the Prophet and slaughtered.
Muhammad trumped up an excuse to void the protection and murdered the men and sons of the tribe while he enslaved the women. A common enough fate for conquered peoples during that time in history, but it nearly proved fatal for the Prophet. His slave taken from the people he betrayed nearly succeeded in ending his life with a poisoned meal. Accounts differ as to the slave's fate, but I suspect she was executed after her admission that she poisoned Muhammad. Then there are the carnal affairs of the Prophet.
From a six year old wife to stealing the beautiful wife of his nephew, Muhammad never reigned in his sexual desires. In fact, he even said that his incredible libido was a gift from Allah to His prophet. When his wives protested too much, he beat them. Even his favorite wife, Aisha, was not immune to being beaten.
The faithful are enjoined to follow the example of the Prophet in order to live a good life. But if Muhammad's life is worthy of emulation, then it is no wonder that Islam is the author of many of the world's ills.
From pedophilia to murder and slavery, Islam remains what it was when it first began: a tool for men to impose their will upon others. It has resisted change in favor of its originating paradigm and continues to fight off the changes of societies surrounding it.
In Britain, for example, Islam has embedded itself within a community that is slowly being killed by it. It has sundered the Isle from its patron Saint George, caused natives to retreat from their own cities, has them arrested for speaking out against it, and has even infiltrated the aristocracy. The British are so enamored of Islam that they even call the English Defense League terrorists for standing up for traditional English values. It is amazing how far the British have fallen as Islam uses their daughters as whores. But Britain is not alone, Islam is doing the same thing throughout the West.
From Norway to New Zealand, Islam is spreading its oily influence and seedy values. They establish organizations like CAIR to conquer with words, while Mosques indoctrinate new terrorists into murder and senseless violence like Anwar al-Awlaki did with U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan. Worse, the politically correct left prevented Major Hasan from being reported when he delivered a jihad motivated diatribe to his superiors. While the left didn't specifically censor the U.S. Army from dealing with the Major, the culture created by them did. Such a culture is sick and serves no one, but our enemies.
This pro-Muslim culture is so pervasive that even the discovery by the FBI of a conspiracy of Muslims to use our American freedoms against us in order to take over our nation and proof that the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR were an integral part of it, did not get any press. It isn't that the news media didn't know about it, it is that they intentionally did not report the story to keep you in the dark. You see, they don't want you to know about organizations like Jamaat ul-Fuqra which has recruited inmates from America's most dangerous penitentiaries and has established twenty-seven compounds in the United States. They also don't want you to know that they are led by a terrorist and promote terror objectives and training, preferring to keep secret that which desires your death.
James Madison said that facts are stubborn things and the facts regarding Islam are incontrovertible. It is a bloodthirsty system of hatred that seeks to make women chattel and all others slaves. While the text of the Quran has not changed, the Muslim can be found in many permutations. From Sunni to Sufi, Islam has changed and the book of the Prophet has undergone many different interpretations. In fact, that is the one thing that all Muslims can agree upon, that the Quran is partly allegorical. However, they differ widely on how much is allegory and how much is literal. This is why they kill each other with wild abandon.
Sunnis kill Shia, Shia kills Sufi, and it goes on and on. The first fifty years after the death of Muhammad was the some of the bloodiest in Islam's history and even rivaled the Crusades for its brutality. This is because the greatest weakness of Islam is its passion. Emotion drives men and holds them to their purpose like no other thing and Islam is full of passion as the now deceased Oriana Fallaci once observed. Unfortunately for Islam, passion can cut both ways and it is the sole check on an out of control religion. As Europe slides inevitably toward Islam and the rest of the West follows, the future remains uncertain with one exception, there will be blood.
This is because Islam is enamored of bloodshed. Throughout its history Islam has always shed blood, both its own and the blood of the infidel. This is why terrorism and hatred have such an appeal to the Muslim. One fuels the other. Yet there are still those idiots who proclaim Islam as a religion of peace. The truth is that Islam has never been a religion of peace, but of conquest, rape, and enslavement. While it is true that not all of the Ummah engages in such reprehensible acts, enough do that Islam remains a threat to the people and culture of the West.
Unless and until the West wakes up to that fact, Islam is a naked blade against the throat of freedom. For some, it may well be too late. I am hoping that we do not witlessly follow them to the same doom.
