Suffering through the Koran, Sura 29, 'The Spider'.
Strive for Allah and don't live in the weak, and flimsy house of the spider.
by Ferdinand III
Strive' in the Koran, means to spread Islam. The entire Koran is a call to imperialism, Jew-hatred and the supremacy of Islam. To strive as this Sura makes clear is to work to expand Allah's rule across the planet. For male Muslims the after-life of wine, women and pleasure is only assured if they strive to please their moon cult deity, “For those whose hopes are in the meeting with Allah (in the Hereafter, let them strive); for the Term (appointed) by Allah is surely coming: and He hears and knows (all things).” [29:5].
Like all Suras, the Spider is a compilation of 'thou shalls'. The commandments are however not designed to liberate a person; elevate the individual or the spiritual; or ennoble earthly existence. They are demands that the person simply support Allah. This is because according to Arab-Islamic fantasy, every person will 'return' to Allah for judgment;
“Those who reject the Signs of Allah and the Meeting with Him (in the Hereafter), - it is they who shall despair of My mercy: it is they who will (suffer) a most grievous Penalty.” [29:23] Therefore if you want the Meccan moon deity to grant you after-life favors you better obey, submit and spread his message.
The Arab cult of pre-destination is rife within the Koran and this Sura: “He punishes whom He pleases, and He grants mercy to whom He pleases...” [29:21] Allah is thus a fickle entity. If you make a mistake – any little error in following Koranic tradition or Arab cultural expectations – you might find yourself roasting your sordid human flesh in eternal hell with those hated Jews - “but, of a surety, hell will encompass the rejecters of Faith!” [29:54].
'Faith' means of course Islamic doctrine. It is impossible in the Muslim world for a good person, not of Islamic 'faith' to be admitted into the after-life or enjoy the pleasures bestowed upon Muslim faithful by the moon deity Ali-ilah. Even a person of the highest ethical rank who is not a Muslim will burn in hell. How very 'moderate'.
The spider parable references the 'flimsiest of houses' [29:41] built by non-Muslims. The spider's web is weak but the real house of Allah is strong. A good wind can wipe out the spider's house, but the house of Allah will not be weakened. Jews and Christians are thus the inhabitants of the spider's slender house. Muslims are encased in the unbreakable foundations of Islamic construction.
If you want the grace and mercy of Allah you must reject the spider's abode and seek out Islam. It is not a coincidence that the Koranic writers use the spider to denigrate the house of Jewish worship. The spider is a pest, a nuisance, a being which produces nothing for the benefit of mankind, but which makes itself obnoxious through its webs and homes which attach themselves to human domiciles. The spider is killed with impunity. So too should the home of Jewish faith be eradicated.
“Is there not a home in hell for those who Reject Faith?” [29:68]
Faith in Islam is submission to Allah. Faith has nothing to do with the Golden Rule, Jewish ethics, or what is in the Book of Matthew. Fall down and submit your worthless life to Allah, “O my servants who believe! truly, spacious is My earth: therefore you serve Me (and Me alone)!” [29:56]
Serve, obey, grovel. That is Islam. Not a faith, but a cult. Not a religion but a paganism. Not a theology of life, but of death.
