Every cult demands this don't they?
Pray and fight in the Al-Lah [aka Muhammad's] cause. How religious. Pray for what? Free will, rationality, humanism, the Golden Rule, the law of immanent tolerance, or gratitude? Nope. Just grovel to the Al-Lah [or Al-Muhammad] and beg for his or its mercy. No free will, no debate, no inquiry, no humanism and certainly no tolerance for the Unbeliever – you will fight in 'Allah's Cause' after all.
Any sentient and objective observer is appalled by what lies in the Koran. The Sura 'Folded Garments' is yet another demand that the Koran be 'handled' with loving care and venerated as the last theological 'word' in history, commanded by the Meccan moon deity, conflated with 'God' in the feverish minds of Moslems and Islamophiles alike.
“When reading the Koran I usually remember the 9th century Persian poet and free-thinker Khayyam, who described the Koran as one of the worst written and most incoherent set of mystical nonsense yet created by man. He hated Islam and the fanatical cult of devotion and bloody-minded savagery that it promoted.
Koran! well, come put me to the test--
Lovely old book in hideous error drest--
Believe me, I can quote the Koran too,
The unbeliever knows his Koran best.
do you think that unto such as you,
A maggot-minded, starved, fanatic crew,
God gave the Secret, and denied it me?--
Well, well, what matters it! believe that too.”
The Unbeliever knows his Koran the best, because the Unbeliever knows its true meaning – the hate, the bile, the fascistic odes of intolerance and ruthlessness. But for the pious Muslim the Koran is not the 'hideous error' of Khayyam's rightful depiction, but instead a book which needs to be caressed and carried 'folded in garments'. Revered and obeyed. Thus does this Sura demand that the blinded, wilful, and irrational moon-cult follower pray during the night and memorize the words of Mohammed or Allah – the two are of course the same:
“True, there is for you by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties; But keep in remembrance the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him whole-heartedly. (sic)” [73:7-8]”
All true. Not only is the Koran to be carefully preserved, but the pious Moslem must stand all night in his 'garments', praying earnestly for the Al-Lah deity [aka Muhammad] to have pity on him and allow him ingress to heaven. Garment wearing piety, slavishly devoted to the Meccan idol. The Koran is without question the worst compilation of intolerance and totalitarianism yet devised by man. In this Sura out of 20 verses, only 10 preach hate speech against the Infidel ape and pig. How moderate. The hate speech verses are lurid and include:
Ramses II or the 'Great' apparently usurped and ignored Al-Lah's 'warner', Moses. Moses was a Hebrew and Yahweh is as dissimilar to Al-Lah, as Christ is to Ba'al. Ramses II was also never destroyed by Yahweh, nor was his Kingdom utterly ruined by the plagues or by the power of Yahweh. Egypt was still the granary of the Near East in the 13th century BC during and after the episodic career of the military-spiritual leader Moses. In the Koran however, Ramses II and his realm were obliterated by the power of the Al-Lah. This is of course false. But the theme is clear. Al-Lah will punish those who don't follow him. Earth, mountains and heaven itself will be torn asunder and imploded. Severe punishments, choking food, and hellfire await those who disobey the warner Muhammad.
There is not one single word in this chapter which is 'nice' to Infidels. Why should there be? A document steeped in will to power and violence has no need nor interest in the Unbeliever – except in his utter destruction and eternal torture.
