“5:10 – Those who reject faith and deny Our Signs will be Companions of Hell Fire.”
A fun exercise for multi-cult minds so in love with Islam, is to go through the second or perhaps the last 'revelation' given by the 'one' or Allah [maybe he really was Obama ?], and count up the verses which preach free-will, tolerance, acceptance, gratitude for life and living, and the Golden Rule. There aren't any. At least none that anyone who is not a besotted Marxist-Moslem can find. Sura 5 [reviewed here] is the second most important chapter in the Koran and abrogates or trumps all earlier Suras. Along with Sura 9, it is the most essential stream of revelation given to Muhammad by the Hub'Allah idol. These verses were 'transmitted' to the great man from the moon idol [Allah means the one which was Hub'Al or Ba'al in pre-Muhammad Mecca]; when Islam was busy conquering with extreme prejudice and bloodshed, the Arab peninsula and denuding it of those evil pagan polytheists, the 'mushrikun', or the Jews and Christians. As such it informs much of Moslem culture, thought and activity. Or do you believe that Islamic supremacism, violence, imperialism and even racism is somehow caused by other factors?
Sura 5 or 'The Table Spread' has nothing nice to say about non-Moslem infidels. This is simply a fact. Does this make Islam a religion or a cult? When you denigrate all of the 'other' are you expressing the doctrines embedded in religiosity or simply engaged in the creation of a cult, with a clear dichotomy between non-cult members who are evil, and cult members who if they support the idol of the one or ilah, are destined for paradise? Witness the hatred towards Christians:
5:14. From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a Covenant, but they forgot a good part of the Message that was sent them: so We estranged them, with enmity and hatred.....And soon Allah will show them what it is they have done.
Note: So the Christians like the Jews will be punished by 'We' or one assumes Allah-guided Muslims. Far from embracing Christians like brothers, the Koran is quite clear – Muslims view these mis-guided people with hatred and a hard heart.
5:36. As to those who reject Faith – if they had everything on earth, and twice repeated, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted to them. Theirs would be a grievous penalty.
5:37. Their wish will be to get our of the Fire, but never will they get out therefrom: their Penalty will be one that endures.
Note; This two verses of gibberish are of course directed at Jews and Christians. 'Faith' references Islam. It is curious that people refer to Islam as a Faith, when only one interpretation is allowed as a 'Faith' namely that of Koranic Islam. If you don't believe in all of it, you have no 'Faith'. It is a bizarre claim made worse by the fact that there is no definition of Islamic faith anywhere in the Koran or the Hadiths – just the following of rituals, sayings and all which the Koran says. There is no creed of understandable 'Faith'.
5:51. O you who believe ! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other.
Note; This is pretty clear – the Jews and their Christian allies are enemies. There is no verse of love or compassion for either group, anywhere in this Sura.
5:78. Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in Excesses.
Note; This piece of propaganda would have impressed the Nazis. Muslims are superior to the other 'Peoples of the Book' because they contravened the Covenants and the words of their Prophets and engaged in 'Excesses'. No details by Mohammed or the writers of the Koran, of these transgressions exist anywhere in the Koran. Just a multitude of repetitive propaganda – the Jews and Christians defied their Prophets, behaved badly, rejected the true faith and therefore are destined to be superseded, punished and destroyed by Islam.
In fact some 22-25 verses condemn Christianity out of 120. This is approximately 20%. Remember this is the first or second-most important stream of Allah-inspired thought given by Muhammad, Islam and indeed the world's most important human in history. The Christians are clearly cursed in this Sura by a 'superior' Moslem sect which has the blessings of this Allah-thing. The crescendo of hatred towards the Christian is reached in verse 33:
“The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter.”
This is pretty clear. Verse 33 follows about 20 verses which rage against the 'People of the Book' as being criminals who rejected the true word of the Allah thing. Humiliating and killing them is the climax of this rage. Here we see yet again the Moslem lie that Allah is the same as the Christian God when in fact the 'one', the ilah or Allah, was Hub'Al a moon deity whose rites and rituals were likely formed through the practices of Assyro-Babylonian culture mixed with local Arab practices. Since Jesus or Issu was really a Moslem, the rejection by Christians of the Allah's true 'word' and the embracing of polytheism as denoted in the worship of the Trinity, mark out Christians as evil, criminal, unclean, wayward and dangerous. Sura 5:33 makes it clear that such people must be killed.
Christians are de-humanized in this Sura. There is not one single expression in this supremacist chapter on tolerance, humility, acceptance, co-existence, love or gratitude, nor of the Golden Rule. Islam rules. Anyone who 'fights' against this 'fact' must be killed or at the very least dominated and humbled. This is not a religion but a cult. Any objective analysis makes this plain.
