More fun and love from the Mohammadan cult. The Koran doth verily drippeth with intolerance, bile and hate. Here is another Sura confirming the irreligious nature of Islam and its obvious totalitarianism. In this Sura the reader is reminded that the great man Leader [sorry not Obama], the chosen anointed 'Prophet' Muhammad, who conveniently invents the unitary divinity of the Allah-thing; is not a dictator. Why is this Muhammad character was so 'prophetic' and so obviously a man of 'god', does the Koran have to constantly justify his rule and his deeds?
“So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds.
You are not a dictator over them.”
Muhammad can of course hide behind his creation the Allah-thing. It is really Allah that makes the rules [through Muhammad]. It is really Allah who sets the rituals [through Muhammad]. It is really Allah who manages all the details of everyone's life [through Muhammad's rule]. And it is Allah who is the only creative energy to have free-will [emanating through Muhammad's dictatorship].
The 'pagan' Arabs were conquered and in fact re-conquered in the Ridda-Wars [Wars of apostasy] by the Meccan moon cult named Submission. When Muslims say 'submission' they mean submit yourself to Muhammad's diktats, evinced and expressed through the Allah-thing and Koranic ritualization. Anyone who can think would have a problem with this program including the pagan Arabs. Historians have long confirmed that many of the conquered Arabs were at best reluctant allies of the Muhammad cult and his military dictatorship, if not outright rebellious and intransigent.
It is not hard to understand why. Under Islamic 'law', the Zakat tax is taken from each Muslim to support the Islamic welfare state including armies and the leaders of the cult. It is understandable that this and other taxes, which flowed from the conquered to the center of the cult, were not held in high esteem by those paying the tithes. Tributary payments are rarely popular. Many Muslims must have been justifiably annoyed at not just the imposition of high taxes by Muhammad and his cult, but by the 'great mans' larger-than-life Hollywood living style, including his corpulence, his insatiable sexual appetite and his compulsive greed in accumulating money and treasure. Of course modern day Moslems and their Dhummi-apologists state that the great leader was poor, obsessed with charity, and profoundly concerned about the children's future. Which politician today does not say the same? It is bunk. Muhammad was poisoned to death by his close associates, and he died very fat, very rich and very much surrounded by comely sex slaves which numbered in the dozens.
This Sura not only tries to justify Muhammad it also sends a clear threat to the pagans, Jews [unclean], and Christians [polytheist hypocrites] that they will be killed. In fact of the 27 verses in this Sura 9 deal directly with the demise of Islam's competitors:
1; Al-Ghashiyah In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
2; Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection);
3; Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.).
4; Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace).
5; They will enter in the hot blazing Fire,
6; They will be given to drink from a boiling spring,
7; No food will there be for them but a poisonous thorny plant,
8; Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger.
9; (Other) faces, that Day, will be joyful,
10; Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism).
11; In a lofty Paradise.
12; Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood,
13; Therein will be a running spring,
14; Therein will be thrones raised high,
15; And cups set at hand.
16; And cushions set in rows,
17; And rich carpets (all) spread out.
18; Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?
19; And at the heaven, how it is raised?
20; And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm?
21; And at the earth, how it is spread out?
22; So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds.
23; You are not a dictator over them.
24; Save the one who turns away and disbelieves
25; Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment.
26; Verily, to Us will be their return;
27; Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning.
So which religious statements do the above illustrate and communicate? The Golden Rule? Tolerance? This Sura is like most of the Koran. If you follow the Allah thing and his chosen leader [and inventor] Muhammad, than they will be “Glad with their (Moslems) endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism).” and be rewarded with eternal life “In a lofty Paradise.” The rest are damned to humiliation and eternal punishment. Cults cleave the world neatly into two opposing camps. The 'them' are demonized. The 'us' are galvanized by words and deeds to fight the 'them' or anyone who opposes the cult. The Koran is very clear on this point. The Unbelievers are not human, cursed and damned by Allah since they have rejected Muhammad's rule and prophecy. No sane person reading the Koran would make the mistake of calling it a religion.
