Curse the Christians and Jews.
9:030 And the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allah's Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!
Sura 9 or 'Repentance', is the last revelation given to the 'great man' Muhammad [sorry not Obama]. It is reviewed here and it is worth highlighting the poverty of this so-called revelatory insight bequeathed to the Arab political-military adventurer Muhammad by Hub'Allah or ilah, via Gabriel. The impoverished non-literature of the Koran finds an apogee in this Sura. Bad writing, intolerance, repetition, overt racism and fanaticism against 'the other' translates in our current post-Modern Marxist world as literary grandeur, tolerance, hope and change; and civilized progression.
Various translations of Sura 9 can be found here [type in Sura 9 and search].
The Sura has two main foci:
Mushrikun or non-Moslems including polytheists, pagans, Jews and Christians [in Islamic liturgy Jews are equated with evil, and Christians with polytheism since Catholics and Orthodox Christians worship the Trinity]. Mushrikun must be punished, fought against, humiliated and subdued.
Follow Muhammad. Whatever Muhammad said, did, thought or wanted is fine. He is blessed and protected by Hub'Allah or the 'one Lord' which in fact could be anything [the ilah or one is simply a naming convention, it might have even meant Obama].
The first two verses of 'Repentance' give the main theme. The non-Moslems are going to be punished in this life and the next and any actions a Moslem takes against them has the blessing of the Allah-thing:
9:001 - Freedom from (all) obligations (is declared) from Allah and His Messenger (SAW) to those of the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), with whom you made a treaty.
9:002 So travel freely (O Mushrikun - see V.2:105) for four months (as you will) throughout the land, but know that you cannot escape (from the Punishment of) Allah, and Allah will disgrace the disbelievers.
Muhammad makes it clear via his alter-ego Allah [both are the same in the Koran of course], that the Infidels are doomed. Since Allah [or Muhammad] hates non-Moslems and will punish and humiliate them you may do whatever it takes to improve the position of Islam. Not much religiosity here.
The first part of this Sura is a justification as to why Muhammad or any pious Moslem can break a treaty or any form of obligation with the hated Infidel.
9:007 - How can there be a covenant with Allah and with His Messenger for the Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) except those with whom you made a covenant near Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah)? So long, as they are true to you, stand you true to them. Verily, Allah loves Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2).
The Infidels are to be shunned. If a pious Moslem takes them as friends he will be punished:
9:023: O you who believe! Take not for Auliya' (supporters and helpers) your fathers and your brothers if they prefer disbelief to Belief. And whoever of you does so, then he is one of the Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.).
It is obvious that Hub'Allah or the ilah only loves the pious Moslem. The key is only Moslems benefit from the ilah. No other 'types' of humans are to be tolerated. Allah does not love pious Buddhists or Animists or the wayward 'peoples of the book' who must be brought back 'in line' with Muhammad's messed up theology, no matter how good, pure and wonderful they might be. Allah covets those who submit to him. Period. Others must be fought and overcome:
9:013 - Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah) and intended to expel the Messenger, while they did attack you first? Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are believers.
Moslems are obliged to fight and 'strive' in the cause of the moon deity:
9:040 March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor), strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allah. This is better for you, if you but knew.
All of this is pretty clear to any but academics, cultural Marxists, politicians and the usual array of socialist fanatics. For the new agers, the above verses and many others which could be added from the same Sura are but mysteries and could relatively mean anything.
The second theme of this long Sura is that Muhammad is the man uber alles. Allah loves Muhammad. The relationship is almost sexual in its intimacy and intricacy between the moon deity idol and his chosen human champion and mouthpiece. Whatever Muhammad wants he gets. Whatever 'law' Muhammad makes the Allah is right behind him. When Muhammad instituted a tax or centralized Zakat, which is wrongly called 'charity' by today's multi-cult, it was a financial imposition by the cult's center on each and every Arab tribe now conquered by Islam.
The Zakat can be used as welfare, payments for soldiers, for jihad, public building, or for any purpose decreed as necessary by the Caliph or leader of the cult in which the powers of both the temporal and the spiritual reside. Muhammad's dictatorship taxed the formerly pagan Arab tribes hard, and when he died there was a widespread revolt, only put down in a bloody war named 'Ridda' or the Apostasy wars, by his successor Abu Bakr. Tens of thousands were killed. Not only were most Arab tribes uninterested in the Allah story and fiction, but they hated the Zakat or centralized tax which denuded them of hard currency and riches. But Allah of course wanted the Zakat.
9:060 - As-Sadaqat (here it means Zakat) are only for the Fuqara' (poor), and Al-Masakin (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah's Cause (i.e. for Mujahidun - those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.
The Zakat has many purposes, only one of which is to feed the poor and thus keep the Moslem umma or state strong. It should be noted that the welfare systems of Rome, Greece, the Jews and Christians pre-date that of the Moslems by 1000 years in some cases.
The Arab Moslem must follow Muhammad, because Allah said so. Not to follow the 'great man' will probably mean your death:
9:066 - Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you because they were Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals, etc.).
If you stray from Islam you might be redeemed as long as you pay the high taxes demanded of the Moslem state and pledge to support Muhammad and everything he says and does:
9:0071 - The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
Muhammad has been consecrated by the Allah deity to wipe out the Unbelievers. It is best to side with Muhammad and help him defeat the Infidel, in whatever way he demands, including in war:
9:073 - O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination.
The above seems rather clear. There is no mis-translation. You can read the above verses from any variety of translators and see the same results. There are two themes to this most important of Suras. Obey Muhammad. Fight the Unbeliever. Pretty simple really. Most cults are rather simplistic in their outlook on the world.
