The most important aspect to remember about Islam and the Koran is this: Islam is about Muslim superiority and the Koran is why Muslims will be rewarded with both earthly bounty and heaven; and why 'Unbelievers' or the 'Wicked' will be punished. A wicked and evil person in Islam simply means someone who has rejected the Allah-cult. Yes it is that simple and that clear. Neither Islam, nor the Koran contains an ethical code especially as it pertains to non-Muslims. Infidels are not treated the same as Muslims, within the Islamic cult, nor does the Koran bother to say anything nice about non-Muslims. There are no verses or sentences expressing tolerance or forbearing towards Non-Muslims. None. Ask a Muslim to disprove this and they can't [but they will call you names, using ad-hominems in lieu of facts].
In the Koran and Islam the world is sharply divided into a Manichean 'us' vs. 'them'. 'We' the Muslims rule and must treat each other well including the gifting of charity, and enforcing non-violence against other cult members. If 'We' the Muslim cult is strong, than the 'them' or the 'Other' are to be converted, warred against, humiliated, or enslaved. They are not the equal of the Muslim male. This is clearly represented in Islamic theology and history. If the Muslim cult however, is weak, than the same non-Muslim groups can be 'tolerated' until the Islamic cult becomes strong enough to subdue them. In this vein 'peace agreements', calls for 'harmony', 'friendships' and social discourse are but temporary illusions designed to buy time, or deceive the Infidel. Islamic theology, Mohammed's life, and Islamic history make the above 100% true.
In Sura 79 we see the aforementioned statements yet again confirmed. 'Those who tear out' references the ripping out of infidel souls by pious and superior Muslim angels on the day of judgement. Divine beings who follow the Allah [or is it Mohammed?] thing and dialectical force and punish non-Muslims.
“By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence:” [79:1]
They are punished for ignoring the Allah thing [or is it Mohammed?]:
“And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see, - Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds, ..The abode will be Hell-Fire.” [79:36-38]
Transgressing bounds in Islam means rejecting the Koran and Mohammed. This Sura specifically targets the Christians and Jews reminding them of the story of Moses. Apparently the Allah thing punished the Pharoah [Ramses II] for ignoring the signs of Moses. In the Koran Moses is a Muslim. The Jewish Yahweh is magically transformed into the Allah thing. The message is clear. Islam is the natural monotheism of all men and has been for eternity. Therefore you the Jews and you the Christians must follow Mohammed because only he [and his invention the Allah], are the true paths to peace and enlightenment.
“Has the story of Moses reached you?...You go to Pharaoh, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds: ...Then (Moses) showed him the Great Sign. But (Pharaoh) rejected it and disobeyed (guidance).” [79:15-21]
What weirdness. Moses is no longer a Jew but a preacher for the Allah cult. The Great Sign of the plague[s] was the doing of this Allah. The Pharaoh rejected the sign[s] and was duly punished by this Allah. This appropriation of Moses by Mohammed and Islam is both illiterate and clever. It conveniently conflates Islam with Judaic history and exegesis something that is central to the Muslim claim that Islam is the 'last' of the divine revelatory theologies. Jews can then be de-humanized, and portrayed as 'wicked', errant and 'transgressors' against the true or Shari path, set out by this Allah [who is Mohammed]. Such a conflation also irrationally invents the idea that Moses and all 'prophets' were Islamic thus conferring on Islam a long and historic pedigree which is entirely false and silly. This muddled thinking is designed of course to appeal to illiterate Bedouin and confuse educated Jews. Maybe Moses really was an Allah follower? The signs are everywhere are they not?
“Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever fears (Allah). What! Are you the more difficult to create or the heaven (above)? (Allah) has constructed it:” [79:26-28]
Fear Allah. Don't know him. Don't debate him. Don't search out truth. Just shut up and obey. How is this either religious or intelligent and how does such a doctrine promote free will? Only Allah knows I suppose.
As the above makes clear there is not much of an ethical program that one can build on top of the dogma as portrayed in this Sura. Tearing, ripping, dismembering of 'wicked' Unbelievers – these ideals are unholy and militate against any form of a peaceful, tolerant theology. Most theologies have a judgement Day. Only Islam has a day of violence, terror, and division of the world into Muslims [the good and elect]; and the rest [the damned, the stupid, the wayward, the blind]. And yet this cult ideal is called a religion?
