4:14 - And whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment.
Sura 4 is a peculiar chapter. It is basically divided into 2 parts. About half the Sura discusses how to treat, marry, sex, own, and manage your 'women'. Much of it reads like a litany of ancient discourse and laws on how to treat your women including when you can beat them [4-34], slave-trade them, when you can have sex with and even marry slaves, and what levels of obedience and support you should expect from these women including wives, sex slaves, daughters and even mother-in-laws. Whilst proscribing marrying one's mother; sex and marriage to a cousin is deemed acceptable. The ideas around 'women' have no relevancy for a medieval, let alone a modern social culture.
Juxtaposed against the above is of course the usual litany of Jihadic injuctions. Out of 176 verses in this chapter, 47 are clearly advocating violence, Jihad and intolerance against and towards non-Moslems, or almost 30%. Islam's two great obsessions – women and the Infidel – are joined in the cult chapter.
The 47 verses which preach violence against Unbelievers are in order:
1)14, 2)30, 3)31, 4)37, 5)38, 6)42, 7)44, 8)45, 9)46, 10)47, 11)48, 12)50, 13)51, 14)52, 15)53,
16)55, 17)56, 18)74, 19)75, 20)76, 21)77, 22)78, 23)84, 24)88, 25)89, 26)93, 27)95, 28)104, 29)115, 30)117, 31)121, 32)137, 33)138, 34)139, 35)140, 36)141, 37)142, 38)144, 39)145, 40)151, 41)155, 42)157, 43)161, 44)167, 45)168, 46)169, 47)170
Islam uses 'keywords' to describe those who should go to the Hellfire, or be tormented in this lifetime; or who should be executed, crucified, and humiliated. The key words used would include those who commit injustice, are unfair, steal, lie, deceive, create social discord, practice polytheism [eg. Christianity], worship false idols [the Jews], are criminals [all non-Moslems], or who do not support the Umma or community with tax payments, hospitality, and reverence. The ugly fact about the Koran and Islam is of course that anyone who does not follow the Muhammad, or the Allah [both of whom can be considered in their Koranic context to be the same]; are all of the aforementioned apellations. The cult rules. If you are outside of the cult, you are a criminal polytheist and instigator of social dislocation. These facts have to be kept foremost in mind when reading the Koran. As 4:30 and 4:92 both state, you must never kill a Moslem [but killing an infidel is fine]:
30:O you who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves unjustly except it be a trade amongst you, by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another). Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you.
92:It is not for a believer to kill a believer except (that it be) by mistake, and whosoever kills a believer by mistake, (it is ordained that) he must set free a believing slave and a compensation (blood money, i.e Diya) be given to the deceased's family, unless they remit it. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you and he was a believer; the freeing of a believing slave (is prescribed), and if he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty of mutual alliance, compensation (blood money - Diya) must be paid to his family, and a believing slave must be freed. And whoso finds this (the penance of freeing a slave) beyond his means, he must fast for two consecutive months in order to seek repentance from Allah. And Allah is Ever AllKnowing, AllWise.
Compare this sentiment with verse 4:56:
Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allah is Ever Most Powerful, AllWise.
Sura 4 makes profoundly disturbing reading. Like the other long Suras a good part of it is little more than rants of violence against those who are not Moslem. This cultural artefact of the Koran must surely distort the culture of the Moslem cult. To deny this is to be purblind on a vast scale. Some of the more 'immoderate' phrases would be:
74-Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allah, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allah, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.
76-Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan).
84-Then fight (O Muhammad SAW) in the Cause of Allah, you are not tasked (held responsible) except for yourself, and incite the believers (to fight along with you), it may be that Allah will restrain the evil might of the disbelievers. And Allah is Stronger in Might and Stronger in punishing.
89-But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya' (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them.
144-O you who believe! Take not for Auliya' (protectors or helpers or friends) disbelievers instead of believers. Do you wish to offer Allah a manifest proof against yourselves?
Fight them, the Infidel Unbeliever. Don't trust them or take them as friends. If you leave the cult you will be killed. Obey Muhammad [or Allah]. Manage your women.
The above sounds like the ravings of a cult, not a theology of peace, love and inter-faith tolerance. These evocative verses of supremacy must certainly distort the Moslem mind and inculcate in their cult devotees a certain degree of supremacism and will to power.
