It was a beautifully clear and sunny day. It was a late summer day in September 2001, when, Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked three passenger planes and carried out their premeditated murder of innocents by a highly coordinated suicide attacks against the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF VIOLENCE?
Everyone aboard the planes and almost 3,000 people on the ground was killed at the hands of those called martyrs for Allah. IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF VIOLENCE? A fourth plane was heroically brought down in a Pennsylvania field, killing all aboard after passengers and crew wrestled control from the Muslim hijackers.
IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF VIOLENCE? DO YOU REMEMBER WHERE YOU WERE?
Do you remember where you were? If you do, please tell us below in the comment section and share this post with everyone you love. I was in the home of a client about to get an agreement signed to treat her home for carpenter ants while the television blared away on a local channel behind us in the kitchen. She was wearing a black and white blouse and black slacks and 6″ high heels. I was in my uniform, and I was so glad to close the deal.
There was a television in the kitchen one in a bedroom on a split floor plan house and a third one in the living room. They were all on different stations from the Teletubbies to CNN. When all of a sudden she gets a call on her cell phone call from her husband who worked in one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Everything goes silent, and the televisions synchronize.
IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF VIOLENCE OR WAS IT JUST AN ACCIDENT?
At first, we only felt awful for some horrible accident. It was that second plane that took our breath and our false sense of safety. In the weeks that followed as it took months to count the dead, they said the world forever changed on that day. They were wrong. They also say that time heals all wounds. Really? Does it. While I forgive, I dare not forget, because I know that time is not a healer here, but a thief. The giant that awoke 11 September 2001 has been lulled back to sleep by lies and false promises.
I am a Christian to my bone and core, and I know that there will be those who call me a hater or will even try to hurt me for reminding them of the past. Every since 9/11/2011, Muslim leaders have dominated the national media always telling us that Islam is the religion of peace and that violence does not represent the teachings of Muhammad’s religion.
These Muslim apologists should stop misleading unsuspecting Westerners, and they should be honest about the heart of their faith. I am going to present you with various passages out of the Quran, which you can verify by visiting the website www.thereligionofpeace.com .
Quran (2:191-193) -191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
192. But if they cease, then Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
193. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)
Quran (2:244) – And fight in the Way of Allah and know that Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
Quran (2:216) – 216. Fighting* (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.[TROP Editor's Note: I have substituted the word “fighting” for the translators' preference (“Jihad”) since the Arabic word used here is from the root qital. “Jihad” is an Arabic word that is not used in this verse.
Quran (3:56) – 56. “As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.”
Quran (3:151) – 151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers).
Since Christians believe in the doctrine of the Trinity it also includes Christians, (i.e.,. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah').
Quran (4:74) – 74. Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allah, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allah, and is killed or gets the victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.
The early Christian martyrs were led meekly to the slaughter. These so-called Muslim martyrs are killed in battle as they attempt to kill and to destroy for the cause of Allah. This is their theological basis for today's suicide bombers.
Quran (4:76) – 76. Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan(Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan).
Muslims believe that anyone who does not follow Allah is of Satan and must be destroyed.
I was going to include videos of beheadings conducted in the name of Allah but decided that since these can be found all over the web, I would forego it.
