Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed. Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.
Pierre Duhem (1861–1916) was a French physicist and historian of science. He understood that all of chemistry and physics, including mechanics, electricity, and magnetism, could be understood from thermodynamic first principles [matter and energy]. These proofs are by the way, rejected by evolution – a theory which is bio-chemically and physically impossible. Duhem's works are also and most importantly, amongst the earliest which tell the true history of medieval affairs – one detached from the bigotry, the nonsense, the lies, and the propaganda emanating from the 'enlightenment', and from cultural Marxist theology.
Duhem apostatized from various cults now deemed 'progressive'. Ergo he is not taught. Duhem believed that the basis of modernity rests solely and squarely, within the medieval era, not from the 'enlightenment' or the magically-initiated scientific revolution of the 17th century [whose main scientists were Christian], which simply continued what came before it, and which certainly did not arise from nothing.
Consider for a matter Duhem's heretical position on Galileo. Duhem presented Galilean theory as a continuous development out of medieval experimentation. Of course this is true – unless you are a committed Atheist, anti-deist or a-historian. Duhem traces the late medieval theory of impetus, back to John Philoponus' criticism of Aristotle and to mature calibrations made in the fourteenth century works of John Buridan and Nicole Oresme:
“The role that impetus played in Buridan's dynamics is exactly the one that Galileo attributed to impeto or momento, Descartes to ‘quantity of motion,’ and Leibniz finally to vis viva. So exact is this correspondence that, in order to exhibit Galileo's dynamics, Torricelli, in his Lezioni accademiche, often took up Buridan's reasons and almost his exact words” (1917, 163–62; 1996, 194).
In other words, Galileo, who copied Copernicus' theory of heliocentricity, but could never prove the math [he famously thought that tidal patterns confirmed heliocentricity, whoops]; purloined much of his motion-dynamics from the 1300s.
Duhem then sketched the extension of impetus theory from terrestrial dynamics to the motions of the heavens and earth:
“Nicole Oresme attributed to the earth a natural impetus similar to the one Buridan attributed to the celestial orbs. In order to account for the vertical fall of weights, he allowed that one must compose this impetus by which the mobile rotates around the earth with the impetus engendered by weight. The principle he distinctly formulated was only obscurely indicated by Copernicus and merely repeated by Giordano Bruno. Galileo used geometry to derive the consequences of that principle, but without correcting the incorrect form of the law of inertia implied in it.” (1917, 166; 1996, 196.)
Galileo borrowed much from his predecessors – without sourcing these findings, nor without attributing and acknowledging them as the inventors of the theorems. This is called plagiarism. To be fair, plagiarism was not considered illegal or immoral in the medieval period. But let's dispense with the inane notion that Galileo was fighting against the darkness of ignorance and superstition. He himself offered very little in mathematical proof to support heliocentricity. That was left to another Christian – Kepler.
Gerbert of Aurillac, was Pope just before the year 1000. Unlike the current Pope who believes that plant food causes global devastation, or the philosophers Darwin, Hawking, Tyson, and other sundry cult members of Darwinism, Gerbert was a practitioner of real science, applying techniques that would not be out of place in our world, to resolve complex mathematical issues. As with Pope Gregory the Great, Gerbert puts lie to the myth, taught as fact [it is fiction], that 'all' Popes were sex-addled bandits, and the Church a zealous inquisitional institution, run by mafia, stifling science and asking poor heroes such as Galileo for proof to support their claims and research paid for with Church money [Galileo famously said that heliocentricity was proven by tidal movements, which are of course caused by the moon, a fact Jesuit astronomers had known about for 30 years. So much for his science].
Gerbert was educated in part at the Cathedral school of Chartres in the last part of the 10th century. This was basically a university, a system of education without compare in any other region in the world. Cathedral schools dominated Europe, providing a higher education for those with means and for monks and the clergy. Many rich sent their sons into these monastic schools to enrich and improve their minds and skills. Book learning, philosophy, math, translations, great art embedded in manuscripts, along with farming, brewing, manufacture and pharmaceutical innovation, can be found within these schools. Here Gerbert was trained.
His personal interest was in mathematics. He helped pioneer the use of the '0', and the replacement of the cumbersome and rather nonsensical Roman numerals, which could not be used to devise higher mathematics and which impeded scientific formulation. He translated and interpreted Euclid and Greek geometry and describes how the Greek Alexandrians discovered laws of geometry because it had a practical usage in measuring fields. He wrote important treatises on the abacus, a simpler and more effective system of counting notation than that employed by the Romans and also on the astrolabe a device first invented by the Greeks in the 6th century BC and later improved upon in Christian Byzantine, but still not widely used in the West by the 10th century. He also appeared to have a talent and extraordinary comprehension of music, writing about musical notation and compositions. Given the enormous volumes of manuscripts he collected, it is clear that he was an inquisitive and widely read man.
There are many myths about Pope Sylvester II and in times past many stories or legends have been attached to his name. But the real man is impressive enough. Unlike today's current Pope Sylvester knew about math, science and innovation. He formulated a dedication to learning, culture and curiosity which so exemplifies the medieval Church and Christendom. Culture is king, and a man like Gerbert, can only arise from a culture which itself is open to real science, intelligence and improvement.
The monk and Pope, Saint Gregory the Great, who died in 604 AD, was one of the more remarkable men in European history. In fact it is not an understatement that Gregory in many ways, inaugurated the true beginning of Western Civilisation. It was under Gregory's leadership that the Church began the long project of restoration within Europe; once the Roman empire, corrupt and rotten, disintegrated and became subsumed into 3 Germanic kingdoms. Without the Church and its active involvement in providing leadership during 2 centuries of change and reconstitution; society might well have slid into a dark age. It didn't and the Church is responsible for that.
Gregory is always portrayed as someone who was not an 'intellectual' [a word that a smart man would find insulting anyways]; or not a deep philosopher [ibid]. This is a positive. He was a monk and a man of the world – practical, realistic, sober, faithful, active, incisive, detailed. Yet in spite of illness, travails, duties and sundry activities, he possessed the skills to complete Augustine's theoretical Christianization of Plato, and give it to the public in a series of writings they could comprehend. Thus the ancient world became a part of the new.
Gregory's other achievements include:
-Author of 850 letters, preserved in 14 books on a wide range of topics from the theological to the secular.
-Gregory sent out Church aid, food, money and support throughout southern Italy, Sicily, Africa, France and Illyricum supporting and indeed saving Christendom in those areas.
He was an active, intelligent, committed, honest man of great faith, practicality, reason and common sense intellect. He is certainly one of the founding fathers of the basis of modern European civilisation.

Gregory the Great [circa 540 AD to 604], was one of the most dynamic men of the Middle Ages. Elected to the Papal office in 590 AD, it was Gregory who largely took the remnants of Roman civilization and its citizenry and during a time of tumult and change; assumed responsibility for the social and moral welfare of the Christian state. This practical management of society during difficult times was important in the development of a mixture of ecclesiastical and state power under the auspices of Rome.
However, as with most 'enlightenment' dogma, the Church never did take over the 'state'. The state however, did indeed take over the Church, or at the very least, directed its prestige towards secular objectives. We see this beginning with the reign of Charlemagne and proceeding down through the Ottonians in the 11th century; the French and Spanish from 1300-1500; and the rich Italian aristocracy including the Medicis from 1400-1650. By the late Middle Ages, Popes, Bishoprics and Diocesans were bought and sold by secular powers, entirely for political purposes.
Rome did not fall, it was taken over and transformed into Germanic kingdoms. There was no 'fall' of civilization into insufferably dense darkness. The Roman civilization was in many ways a deterrent to the improvement of man, life and society. Technology, the arts, innovation, all suffered, as did the 90% of Romans who were impoverished or enslaved.
What Gregory and others within the Church had to do, was to pick up the relevant pieces of the Roman world, and merge them with a new social order premised around the only authority left to manage the transformation; namely, the Church. In Roman cities every aspect of life, from water provision to welfare and education, now fell under the rubric of the organized and responsive Church. Without the Church, there would have indeed been a lot more chaos, death, and suffering post the decline of the rotted Roman empire.
Gregory was in many ways the savior of social and civilizational order. The Papacy repaired, invested, and improved upon the existing infrastructure left by the Romans. There was never a descent into barbarity. What is dark is our inability to read through the thousands of tonnes of documents in Latin, which are available, and which describe the various works, efforts and attempts to recreate a new and better social order. Indeed there is little doubt that the Lombardian and Visigothic Kingdoms were richer, better organized and more literate than the Roman. In the case of the latter, it proved to be a magnet for the Moslem Jihad. Apparently Jihad is more attracted to wealth, coin and beauty.
Gregory's main intellectual achievement was to bring Augustinian theology to the masses. He wrote and expounded on Augustine's early 5th century theology which was Platonist in its construction. Thus we have the merging into Christianity of Plato's doctrines around the soul, eternal life, the dichotomy of the body and soul; and the moral life. St. Thomas Aquinas Christianized Aristotle. Augustine and Gregory Christianized Plato. There was therefore, no conflict whatsoever between Christianity and the ancient pagan Philosophers.

Sura 15 is particularly notable for its confused banality [reviewed here]. It is another expression of intolerance to Jews [and by extension later to Christians] who rejected Islam and decided to hide in the 'Rocky Tract' and the forests, avoiding Moslems and the Muhammad cult. Christians are as wayward, despised, and hated as the Jew in Mein Koran. Sura 15 simply reiterates this animus against those who do not follow the Sharia-Muhammadan code. Over 1/3 of the chapter is hate speech, a fact lost on Islam's Western supporters and cult members.
Sura 15's violence can be viewed here, including:
Christians and Jews are always linked within Mein Koran, to Satan, to greed, to stupidity, to insufferable arrogance and stubbornness. In the case of Christians they are 'criminals' or Mujrimum. They are not to be trusted and only to be marginalized, conquered and destroyed.
Westidiots [Western idiots] will complain that the hate speech is 'taken out of context'. Wrong. The hate speech is pulled directly from Mein Koran and 1600 verses of hate speech in total, is rather hard to invent. Instead it is the Westidiots who pull sentence fragments such as 2:256 'let there be no compulsion in religion', which is part of one of the most intolerant, violent and supremacist odes in man's written history. Sura 2:256 is debunked here.
The Dark Ages of course never existed. Except in the fetid minds of Christian – haters and those opposed to the Church. Voltaire, Gibbon et al never created, built or manufactured a single item. Yet they are declared by their cult members as the intelligent ubermensch, bringing classical thought and light, back to a world rotted with the sick decayed corpus of a corrupt Church....the opposite is true of course.
Fat men in periwigs, strutting around in their diffident ignorance offered very little of value to the world, even in their domain of metaphysics.
Science did not suddenly 'evolve' by magic random chance in the 17th C. Newton and other Catholics did not spring out of the dirty, muddy ground and pronounce rootless, detached theorems ad novo. 2000 or more years of patient discovery, including the foundations of modern math and science long pre-date Newton, the Galileo myth, or the Atheist legends that only the godless discover 'truth'. Globaloneywarming and the fraud of Evolution are the results of such nonsense.
The Enlightenment, an English perversion of a word which once had meaning, was in reality an endless Protestant attack on the Church. It was not elevated, scientific or rational in many ways. This era resurrected abiogenesis, witch burnings, and historical revisionism. Men who wore eye glasses – a 13th c. Innovation – could find no value in what preceded them. Blindness finds many forms. In the name of the 'Enlightenment' thousands of properties across Europe were torn down, treasures looted, stolen and defaced; priceless artifacts cut down; thousands killed and in the name of politics and hunger for money, sundry wars created.
The unenlightened Enlightenment gave us the following:
-The free-will denying theologies of Luther and Calvin. No free will, no freedom, no markets, no civilization.
-The promotion of predestination, meaning that nothing you do in this life matters. This moral rot has seeped deep into the foundations of civilization.
-Rousseau, counter-rationalism, naturalism and the myth of the noble savage. This pagan theology that 'nature' in and of itself is superior, and that man is not the master but the slave of nature, is such childish nonsense and philosophical poison.
-Anti-science theologies ranging from Evolution and abiogenesis, to 'long ages of the earth', extraterrestrial life forms and a resurgence in astrology and magic.
-Phlogiston was declared to be the base element of the cell. It was disproven in 1774 by Lavoisier, but zealously promoted by 'scientists' during the 18th century.
-In the 19th century, Darwin, who never performed a single experiment to support algae to human evolution; accepted, along with most 'scientists'; that the single cell was a simple globule akin to jelly.
-The Enlightenment tore apart Europe and granted us the French Revolution and Napoleon, one of the greatest butchers and worst autocrats in history, whose bloody career killed millions, destroyed wealth and property and held back European development by at least 2 generations. The state was uber alles. The wise dictator an Enlightenment hero. See Fredrick the 'Great'.
-Marxism, Darwinism, Socialism, Communism, Nazism, and theological philosophies supporting the same ranging from the sick prostitute worshiping Nietzsche, to Lenin, Heidigger and the Frankfurt post-modern schools of the 1930s and 40s [cultural Marxism which is so rampant today]. All of these 'dialectical' theologies are irrational and immoral, but were sold based on their 'science'.
-Atheism, a theology of the unscientific and immoral which in the guise of Nazism and Communism murdered 150 million people.
-Flat earth societies which never existed in the Middle Ages [no one from the time of Christ thought that the earth was flat]; appear in the 19th century all over the developing world. 'Science' was used to prove [via sight lines usually along 'flat' bodies of water]; that the earth's curvature was a fiction.
-Historical rewriting and ignorance. Voltaire and friends could not explain the engineering masterpieces named 'Gothic Cathedrals' for example; nor did they know much if anything about what predated them.
Of course in today's perverted, distorted world, if you criticize the Un-Enlightenment era, you are 'anti-rational'. As usual with these people the opposite of what they state is the truth. Yes one can highlight achievements – sundry and many – during the era 1650 to 1800. But they have precious little to do with 'Enlightenment thought', and more to do with individuals creating, innovating and getting on with life. One can say with historical veracity, that the achievements from 1650 to 1800 were smaller in comparison to what preceded that era; and were accomplished in spite of the decline in culture and reason.
Mein Koran plagiarizes Jewish and Christian texts – usually incorrectly – then makes the inane, absurd, counter-factual and quite demented claim, that the Jews and Christians perverted the 'original' scripture of Baal the Lord or ilah of Mecca. Due to this, they are criminals, polytheists and evil, doomed for destruction. The most complete 'history' of why Mein Koran precedes what it plagiarizes namely the Old Testament, is found in Sura 14. This madness is of course supported by Western quackademics and politicians who declare such irrationality, the height of historical and religious observation.
Sura 14 contains only 13 verses of hate speech. The cult of the multi-culti twitters that this is a moderate amount. Examples of Mein Koran and Moslem 'tolerance' include:
Because the Jews have rejected the 'true path' of Allah, and because the Jewish sect called Christianity practices polytheism in the form of the Holy Trinity, they must be attacked, reduced, humiliated and controlled by Moslems in this world; and given an eternity of torment by Allah in the next. Note that words such as 'disbelievers', 'criminals', 'wrong-doers', 'arrogant', 'astray', 'those who stray', 'greedy' etc. only apply to non-Moslems. Anyone who follows the cult is esteemed and worthy. Anyone who does not follow the cult must be fought against, striven against, attacked, and beaten and are certainly doomed by Allah in the next life to eternal torment.
What love, what tolerance. More stupidity from Mein Koran and Sura 14 is here.
Only 37% of Sura 13 or 'Thunder' contains hate speech against the Infidel-Kufar. A moderate amount surely. Catholic theologians and the Vatican will rush to point out that 37% is a minority of the totality. The other 63% discuss why you need to follow – blindly – Muhammad or Allah and prostrate yourself to these divinities. Western politicians vociferously defend such hate speech under the category of 'religious freedom'. Nazism too would have enjoyed such benevolent tolerance in today's multi-culti paradise.
Curse and destroy the Catholics:
Curse and destroy the Jews and Pagans:
Curse and destroy any who do not follow Muhammad-Allah:
Allah means the Lord – Al Lah. It does not mean God. It references of course, the Meccan moon idol Baal. Those who 'work mischief in the land' identifies any who do not follow Muhammadan Sharia fascism. They include Moslem apostates. Catholics who venerate a Trinity are polytheists, and Jews are the ones who broke the original covenant with the moon deity, sullying the purity of the Koran with their own Hebrew blasphemy. The fact that the Koran is largely plagiarized and bastardized from the Torah apparently proves its authenticity for the big brains of the world. Cursing Jews for corrupting the Torah, is about as intelligent as cursing Agamemnon for being corrupted by Homer.
More misery from 'Thunder' can be found here.
Sura 12 relates the improbable tale that Joseph, a great prophet of the Hebrews and son of Jacob [born to Isaac, and grandson of Abraham]; was a Moslem ! Fantastic rewriting of actual history, which Western Phds clutching their Gender-Multiculti 'degrees' will declare to be accurate, factual and proven. Like all of the Koran it is ridiculous, absurd and yes, idiotic.
The problem with the constant Koranic claim that Hebrew and Christian Prophets were 'Moslem', is that Yahweh and the Christian God have nothing whatsoever in common with Baal the Lord or ilah of Mecca. Nothing. Baal as Muhammad's family deity and over-lord of the Kabaa shrine was the principal idol of a celestial cult. He was known as the moon deity of Mecca. He had a consort Allat the Sun goddess and two daughters representing Venus and the Moon. Elsewhere in the Near East Baal was associated with Sky Gods, Thunder and planetary motions. Mecca's Baal was thus one of many.
In the real world it is highly inane to claim that Joseph was preaching on behalf of Baal.
“Joseph lived 110 years. He saw great-grandchildren from both his sons. Before he died, he told his brothers that God would one day bring them up from Egypt into the land that God promised their fathers. He made them swear to carry his bones out of Egypt into that land. Joseph died and was embalmed and put in a coffin in Egypt.
Joseph was a Hebrew Patriarch, who informed and inspired Moses. He worshiped Yahweh who has precious little to do with Baal's cult. Moses was not a Baal cult member, in fact the Old Testament makes it clear the Canaanites and other Baal cult worshipers were evil. Child sacrifices, orgies, death, immoral behavior was the norm. Baal was to be rejected in order to worship Yahweh. The building of the golden calf by the Hebrews at the foot of Sinai [Mount Sin or Mount Moon], while Moses was inscribing the Commandments, was an emblem to Baal. In the ancient world the calf represented the worship of, and in the flesh, the sacrifice to, the celestial deity Baal.
In fact Sura 12 makes it clear the Jews and Christians are to be destroyed because they do not worship the Lord of Mecca [Baal or Muhammad, take your pick]. Far from preaching the cult of Baal, the Jews and Christians have rejected it.
Al Lah is 'The One' or 'The Lord'. It does not mean God. Christians attribute the Trinity to God – a blasphemy punished by death in Muhammadism. Jews associate Yahweh with their own personal destiny and nation. They use representations, idols and rituals in their worship – all of which are blasphemous and punished by death in the Muhammadan cult. Jews and Christians are thus Mushrikun, and unclean, criminals, who disavow the Sharia of Muhammad. They are not accepted as equals, but as untermensch who must be destroyed.
Typical Mainstream Media madness. Divorcing Islamic State from Islam. You might as well divorce wet from water. In another tendentious op-ed piece in the WSJ, a Mr. Jones [has to be a pseudonym], director of the RAND Corp's International Security Policy Center [not sure what all that means], and a professor [there is the key], states the following, which saturates the media, the education systems, and government propaganda relating to the moon cult of Muhammadism; namely that ISIS' ideology must be confronted – but he never states what that ideology is based upon:
A successful U.S. response must now go beyond countering Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. It should begin with an accurate diagnosis of the group’s expansion. The U.S. must then work with international partners in endangered countries such as Libya to undermine Islamic State’s ideology, cut off its sources of income, target its key leaders and assist local governments. Failure to do so will result in more Islamic State victories.
The author says we need to 'undermine Islamic State's ideology'. Okay and what does that mean? ISIS' ideology is called ISLAM. Jihad and world-wide domination is promoted as necessity and duty within Mein Koran. Arab Moslem imperialism is simply a dialectical fact according to Muhammadism. ISIS or ISIL is simply following Mein Koran and fuehrer Muhammad. That is why Islam is rightly called Muhammadism. It is a cult of those who follow everything Muhammad, said, did and ordered. This includes dominating the world and eradicating Kufars. Such directions can be found in Mein Koran and the Hadith for any who actually bother to read them.
The problem we have in the West is that few understand Moslem theology and history. Including most 'experts'. Worse, our elite loves Islam. More Moslem immigration. More aid money. More kiddies trotting off to the mosque on multiculti day, taking time from school to praise Muhammad and his moon deity. More one-world Multi-culti FIFA-Olympics propaganda. Jones and others state that we must 'undermine ISIS' ideology'. What does he mean? Islam is the issue with ISIS and with the world at large, but he can't name it. Islam and the disease in our own society called Cultural Marxism lovingly embraces it. Being a professor I would expect Mr. Jones and his elitist friends to passionately declare that ISIS is ISIS and not Islam. Indeed none of these people can even put Islam and ISIS in the same sentence.
Sura 11 is such barbarism. Surely Western multi-cultis will soon proclaim that such illiteracy is now prophetic religious instruction. 18 verses give witness to the destruction of Jews and Christians within Sura 11. Only 18. A moderate amount. Advocating violence in Mein Koran, is as common as the demand to submit your worthless self [there is no free will in the cult of Muhammad]; to the moon deity or ilah.
Further, the madness of Sura 11 asserts that any and all prophets before Muhammad were actually Moslem, even though the cult of Submission and its attendant fascist supremacism, did not get started until 610 AD. Ergo Hud, Moses, Isiah, Jesus et al were really voices of prophecy and moral instruction for the pagan moon cult of Mecca, whose idol, Hub'Al or Baal, was the ilah or Lord of Mecca. I doubt Christ was proclaiming the good news of a pagan fascism. No doubt however Western academics do term this nonsense 'historically accurate and a factual representation of Islamic claims'. They believe after all that a moon cult is a religion.
Below are typical verses one finds in Sura 11 and throughout the entire Koran. Western politicians express outrage that a direct and accurate translation of Mein Koran, reveals the themes of violence, hate, Jihad and intolerance.
If you don't embrace Mein Koran and the worship of Muhammad, you will be surrounded, tormented, and sent to the Hellfire in the after-life. It is all or nothing. Either you are fully in the cult of Mein Koran, or you are out. If ostracized or unwilling to join your doom in this life and the next is assured.
Yes the moon deity is indeed 'severe' with his enemies. Jews, Christians and pagans were to be wiped out by Moslems. So spaketh Mein Koran.
Sura 10 confirms, as if anyone should need convincing, that Islam is simply a cult. Part of a cult's doctrine is to wage Jihad against non-cult members. This includes those who leave the cult. Within Islam there is a large body of jurisprudence supporting the death of apostates. Apostasy from Muhammad's cult means death. We see this around the Moslem world, on a daily, monthly, yearly basis. This demand to kill any who leave the cult, originates from the mouth of Muhammad who clearly stated that any who joined and then left his cult must be killed.
'Scholars' view such claims as part of the Medina Koran. In actual fact Muhammad and his cult were always intolerant. Islamic and Moslem intolerance, based on a supremacist ideal, just takes different forms depending on how strong the cult is versus its competitors. When Muhammad's cult is weak, deceit and mendacity inform its activity. When strong, the supremacist fascism explodes into violence and death.
The crux of Sura 10 is in verse 37:
“This Qur'an is not such as can be produced by other than Allah; on the contrary it is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book – wherein there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Worlds.”
In other words, supremacism. Verse 37 clearly states that the Jewish and Christian 'books' which precede the Koran are now eclipsed by it. The moon deity of Mecca or the ilah, gave the most important human in history, Muhammad, the 'fuller explanation of the Book'. This means that the Qur'an cannot be changed, amended, or ignored. It has to be followed in toto. This is why those who moan like Hirsi Ali and others, that Islam 'needs a reformation', are absolutely deluded. They have not read Mein Koran, or do not understand its intent. Mein Koran can never be altered.
Logically therefore, if verse 37 is true then all Infidels and non-Moslems must die in a tortured state, as evinced in this verse of tolerance and hope:
10:4 To Him is the return of all of you. The Promise of Allah is true. It is He Who begins the creation and then will repeat it, that He may reward with justice those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) and did deeds of righteousness. But those who disbelieved will have a drink of boiling fluids and painful torment because they used to disbelieve.
10:54 And if every person who had wronged (by disbelieving in Allah and by worshipping others besides Allah), possessed all that is on earth, and sought to ransom himself therewith (it will not be accepted), and they would feel in their hearts regret when they see the torment, and they will be judged with justice, and no wrong will be done unto them.
To sin in Islam is to disbelieve in Allah, Muhammad or the Koran. This is why apostasy is punished by death. Leave the cult and you will be killed. Criticize the moon cult and your life is forfeit. Death for apostates is a clear expression of an intolerant and quite insecure cult. It is not what a religion would offer.
More madness from Sura 10 here.
As the media and politicians, along with Marxist multi-culti one-world-wonders, drone on, that Islam is Peace, they might want to actually read Mein Koran, and Sura 9 as a primer on what Muhammadism really entails. 40% of Sura 9 is hate speech against non-Moslems. For instance:
'Them' means Jews and Christians of course, though Pope Frank would say that this is merely the incitement to kill made by 'arms traffickers' who misinterpreted mad Muhammad.
Sura 9 is the last or second last revelation to the great man [not Obama], Muhammad, the founder of the cult of Submission [submit to Muhammad]. It thus trumps all of the other Sura's with its violence, hate, and supremacism with the exception of Sura 5 and possibly Sura 8 or the Spoils of War [nice religious ring to that snappy title...].
Since 'only' 40% or more of this chapter named 'Repentance' [repent, humble yourself to Muhammad or else....] demonizes and advocates violence against the Kufar, or Unbeliever, Moslems and their allies will of course whine that 60% is thus not violent. This is true. 60% is the usual litany of Koranic gibberish. Follow Muhammad. Obey Allah. But the central feature of this Sura, as with so much else in Mein Koran is the expectation that 'real Moslems' will commit violence against non-Moslems. Sura 9 in fact adjures the use of Jihad.
9:49 “Among them is (many) a man who says: 'Grant me exemption and do not draw me into trial.' Have they not fallen into trial already? And indeed Hell surrounds the Unbelievers (on all sides).”
“The Arabs of the desert are the worst in unbelief and hypocrisy, and most fitted to be in ignorance of the command which Allah has sent down to His Messenger: but Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [9:97]
It is a simple fact that Mein Koran demands that Moslems must fight the Unbeliever. This includes Jews, Christians and other pagans. Arabs who do not join the cult and fight the enemies of Islam are doomed to hellfire by the all-knowing, free-will denying Hub'Allah.
Read more of the insanity here.
Only 42 % of Sura 8 is hate speech. I wonder if the big-brains and Fascists actively campaigning to limit free-speech, criticism of the Muhammadan cult; or any observations contrary to their PC world view, will apply their 'critical thinking', their 'tolerance of the Infidel' and their 'sensitivity' to non Moslems and Koranic hate speech. Mein Koran, Mein Kampf.
(Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."
This is because they defied and disobeyed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever defies and disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.
This is the torment, so taste it, and surely for the disbelievers is the torment of the Fire.
Nice. The Lord is Baal or the ilah of Mecca. This Lord is also conflated in the Koran with Muhammad. For a spokesman, Muhammad, seems to be on the same level as the moon deity of Mecca, and clearly in charge of the cult. There is little difference between Baal and Muhammad. They are usually illustrated as one and the same, or firmly in alliance.
Sura 8 is a screaming ode to obliterate the Infidel Kufar, sub-human. Out of 75 verses in Chapter 8, there are only 33 which could be classified as hate speech under existing hate speech laws in Canada and Europe. A favourite is surely this catchy phrase 8:39:
“And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah sees all that they do.”
Moslems must fight on until the House of War is subdued. This is what is meant by 'no more tumult or oppression'. The existence of Infidels and deniers of the Allah cult is simply insufferable to the pious Moslem. The Allah-thing's commandment is clear – every human must be in bondage and submission to the moon deity, or to the cult of Muhammad.
Cultural Marxism has the following Rockwell-painting regarding the followers of Muhammad. They are dancing, happy and profound people. Hair flying in the wind. Broad smiles. Whirling dervishes of enlightened camaraderie, holding hands with Jews and Christians. Loving glances between Moslem father and daughter. Well dressed, impeccably articulate, devoted, earnest, inspiring, and so moderate....interested in science, culture and truly understanding others.
This media stereotype of the perfect man and woman [who are Moslem], hardly comports itself with the reality of say, Sura 8.
How many Moslems have read Sura 8? How many believe it? What impact does a chapter of what can only be termed hate speech have on the general culture of the Meccan cult? Why is Islam a religion when Sura 8 and indeed the entire book deny free-will, rationality, independence, and respect for others? Since when is unbridled hate speech religious?
