Islam is not a religion. It is a political ideology based on a 3000 year old pagan Arabian cult. If we don’t understand our enemy we will never be able to adequately defend our superior civilization. The supremacist ideology of Islam exactly matches Hitlerism and Communism in design; intolerance; and violence.
Violence and submission to male Muslims permeates the Koran and Islamic thought. Though Islam has preached, [to its credit], the equality of all free-born, male Muslims, non-Muslims, women and slaves considered inferior. Islam is supremacist and sexist since it excludes people on the basis of belief, sex and religiosity. This leads to all sorts of problems when the ideology takes power in a society.
Sura xxiv states that slavery is a permanent institution and many other Suras state that women are the property of men. Historically within Islam there has been legal and systemic discrimination based on sex and religion. Akin to Hitler’s race based fanaticism or Stalin’s anti-capitalist, anti-Western class based struggle, salvation outside the Islamic ideology is impossible. The world is thus divided between Muslims and non-Muslims. Islam like Hitlerism and Stalinism though in a different manner, is certainly not only a supremacist but also a racist ideology. The Koran makes this apparent with its appeal to ‘believers’ and its cry to eliminate, convert, or conquer non-believers.
It is useful to read the Koran to get a sense of the profundity of its racism and supremacism. There are a litany of sayings in the Koran which preach hatred and ill-will towards non-Muslims, and show a pathological fear of the ‘other’ people, ideas and races. The Jews are constantly referred to as pigs and apes in the Koran, a simple fact that Islamacists in their dealings with Western leaders and the media refuse to acknowledge. No such comparable race based vitriol exists in the Bible.
Koran: Sura 5:60
In this sura Mohammed apparently received the divine revelation from ‘Allah’ that the Jews were somehow lower than pigs and swine and irremediably deviant from the correct path of enlightenment. It is this sura along with many others which allows Mohammed and subsequent Muslim leaders and ‘philosophers’ to justify the destruction of the Jewish race. It must be a remarkable fact that a moon deity spoke Arabic to a pagan war lord [Mohammed] and specifically pointed out that a group of Semites who had previously done nothing ill against the pagan cult in question and had in fact aided it with money and support, must now be tormented and exterminated. Perhaps political and trade rivalry incited this ‘revelation’?
Here are a few other Suras taken directly from the Koran which illustrate Islam’s racist contempt for ‘the others’ and specifically the Jews:
• iv.101: The unbelievers are your sworn enemies.
• lx.4: We renounce you [i.e. the idolaters]: enmity and hate shall reign between us until you believe in Allah only…
• lviii.23: You will not find believers in Allah and the Last day on friendly terms with those who oppose Allah and His apostle, even though they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their nearest kindred …
• ix.7: Allah and His apostle repose no trust in idolaters …
• viii.13-14: Thus We punished them because they defied Allah and His apostle. He that defies Allah and His apostle shall be sternly punished. We said to them, ‘Feel our scourge. Hell-fire awaits the unbelievers.’
• viii.55: The basest creatures in the sight of Allah are the faithless who will not believe …
• xxv.55: Yet the unbelievers worship idols which can neither help nor harm. Surely the unbeliever is his Lord’s enemy.
• v.72: He that worships other Gods besides Allah shall be forbidden Paradise and shall be cast into Hell-fire. None shall help the evil-doers.
• ix.23: Believers! do not befriend your fathers or your brothers if they choose unbelief in preference to faith. Wrong-doers are those that befriend them.
• ix. 28: Believers! know that the idolaters are unclean.
• xi. 28: Let believers not make friends with the infidels in preference to the faithful; he that does this has nothing to hope for from Allah – except in self-defense.
• iii.118: Believers! do not make friends with any men other than your own people. They will spare no pains to corrupt you. They desire nothing but your ruin. Their hatred is clear from what they say, but more violent is the hatred which their breasts conceal …
• v. 14: Therefore, We stirred among them [the Christians] enmity and hatred, which shall endure till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will declare to them all that they have done.
• v.64: That which Allah has revealed to you will surely increase the wickedness and unbelief of many of them [the Jews]. We have stirred among them [the Jews] enmity and hatred which will endure till the Day of Resurrection.
• v.51: Believers! take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their number. Allah does not guide the wrongdoers.
Considering that Mohammed basically fastened Jewish monotheism onto a pagan moon cult, his constant screaming to ‘Believers!’ to avoid the idolatrous Jews and Christians is best explained by Islam’s fear that outside competitive ideas would water down Arab unity and challenge Arab power.
Arabs and Muslims have always blindly hated the Jews and Christians. Since its inception Islam has blamed the Jews and Christians for every setback, problem or period of unrest. In Mohammed’s time Jewish villages and wealthy Jews and Christians were eradicated by gangs of Muslim brigands. Early Islam under their prophet’s command took fifty percent of the conquered Jews annual income in tax.
In 631 AD in the middle of the Arab conquests of Jewish and Christian territories of the Levant, the Muslim leadership ordered that all Jewish and Christian houses of worship and business be destroyed and that the unbelievers be converted or forced to pay extortionate taxes and receive their justice based on Koran. The violence against the ‘idolatrous non-believers’ is a genetic component of the Arabian moon cult and it has only spread in geography and in intensity since Mohammed’s death. The Koran and Islamic philosophy mandate such violence.
In the modern era we can see that natural Islamic hate and violence has been married with the tools, and philosophies of Nazism. As Bernard Lewis says the 7th century Arab invasion of Jewish held territory in the Middle East and their endless struggle for Palestine over the centuries, has greatly facilitated the acceptance of an anti-Semitic interpretation of history – where all troubles are attributed first to the Jews then latterly to the Christians. Muslims have long viewed the competing claims of the Jews and ‘cross worshippers’ as execrable lies and ones that are so obnoxious they must be terminated by destroying their adherents. Indeed many passages in the Koran make it quite acceptable to kill the Jews and idolaters.
• ii.61: ‘Wretchedness and baseness were stamped upon them [That is the Jews] and they drew on themselves the wrath of God. This was because they [the Jews] disbelieved the signs of God and slew the Prophets unjustly, and because they rebelled and transgressed.’
• iv.160,161: Because of the wickedness of certain Jews, and because they turn many from the way of God, We have forbidden them good and wholesome foods which were formerly allowed them; and because they have taken to usury, though they were forbidden it; and have cheated others of their possessions, We have prepared a grievous punishment for the Infidels amongst them.

Islam’s violent racism is plainly in evidence today. Iran states it wants to destroy the Anglo-Saxon powers and the Jews. Various Islamic terror groups say the same while murdering innocents. We have the words of the Mufti of Jerusalem who in 2001 declared at the site of the Dome on the Rock [a Muslim holy place] that the negation of the Jews is an existential need of Islam. Such a declaration is consistent with Mohammed and Islam’s roots 1400 years ago. An entire encyclopedia could be produced of quotes from Islamic leaders just in the past 5 years who have openly declared that the Jews and the Western powers must be exterminated.
Throughout the Muslim world daily proclamations ring out inciting violence, genocide and racism against the Jews and their capitalist allies the Western powers. This hardly sounds like an ideology of peace and conciliation. Even organizations in the West declare that Islam must destroy Western governments:
‘Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam ... Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.’ [Omar Ahmad, Co-founder of US based CAIR; Council of Arab-Islamic Relations.]
‘O God, support the mujahidin for the sake of the triumph of your religion and the elevation of your word everywhere. O God, support them in Palestine, Kashmir, and Chechnya. O God, support the mujahidin in Palestine. O God, deal with the tyrant Jews for they are within your power. O God, we ask You to face them and spare us their evils. O God, whoever wishes us and Muslims evil, busy him with himself and make his plotting destroy him.’ [Riyadh Kingdom of Saudi Arabia TV1, official television station of the Saudi Government, broadcast of live sermon by Shaykh Husayn al-Shaykh from the holy mosque in Mecca, August 30, 2002.]
‘The war of cultures had begun long before the 9/11 attacks, before Huntington and Fukuyama. This war has been going on since there first were the faithful and the unfaithful.’ [An editorial in the March 2004 issue of Mu'askar al-Battar, an al-Qaeda newsletter]
‘The Muslims say to Britain, to France and to all the infidel nations that Jerusalem is Arab. We shall not respect anyone else's wishes regarding her. The only relevant party is the Islamic nation, which will not allow infidel nations to interfere...’
‘Allah shall take revenge on behalf of his prophet against the colonialist settlers who are sons of monkeys and pigs... Forgive us, Muhamad, for the acts of these sons of monkeys and pigs, who sought to harm your sanctity.’
[‘Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine’, Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on July 11, 1997..]
‘We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you.’ [Hussein Massawi, former head of the Hezbollah, about the Western world]
‘The interests of Muslims and the interests of the Socialists coincide in the war against the Crusaders.’
[Osama bin Laden, 14 February 2003]
The Jews are the cancer spreading all over the world...the Jews are a virus like AIDS hitting humankind...Jews are responsible for all wars and conflicts....Do not ask what Germany did to the Jews but what the Jews did to Germany. True, the Germans killed and burned Jews but the Jews exaggerate the numbers to gain propaganda advantages and sympathy.
[Sheikh Ibrahim Mudairis, May 13, 2005, Gaza]
The hatred of the Jews and the West is a genetic component of Islam’s DNA and travels with Muslims wherever they go. In every part of the globe Islamic movements, mosques and leaders have declared their intention to first subvert, and then wipe out the Jewish-Capitalist menace. Even in America the Centre for Arab-Islamic Relations has stated that it wants to turn the US into a Caliphate by 2025 by peaceful means if possible. The Jihadic and racist ideology and vitriol are not confined to Bin Laden, Zawahiri, Al Qaeda or radical Imams. It permeates Islam in all countries, in many forms.
The supremacist, intolerant and swaggering racism embedded in the Koran, Islam, and its leadership is why this movement is not a religion. It is just another pagan-fascism looking to control the world.
