No greater lie exists than the perversion that Islam is a religion. And one of peace yet. Muslim practices and Islamic doctrine have nothing to do with 'religion'. They are premised on a 3000 year old moon cult, and are concerned with control, power, supremacism and racist ideology. Islam has far more in common with Nazism than it does with Christianity. Is Nazism to be accepted as a religion? If Islam, the most primitive and pagan of pre-modern ritualised moon worship must be embraced as a religion why not Nazism?
Hitler's great statist-fascist experiment was in essence a cult movement founded on the same ideals which animate Islam. Cults share many features. Hitlerite fascism was of course a left-wing, communal phenomenon using the power of the modern state to militarise, terrorise and engage in domestic and international violence. Yet few today would subscribe to the belief that Nazism was a religion, a way of life, a cultural expression or some sort of experiment which went sadly awry.
Not many defend the 70 million dead including 6 million Jews in an industrialised murder, as being unfortunate victims of a brave and morally superior 'new world order'. Nazism was a cult-centric evil of communist proportions, surpassed only in violence and butchery by Chinese, Russian and African marxists, and of course by Islam itself.
Islam in the name of the Arabian moon deity, ali-lah has killed about 300 million people over 1400 years. It enslaved some 20-25 million Blacks, and about 15-25 million Whites. Slavery still goes on in the Islamic world today, along with terrorism, female mutilation, female bondage, female slaving, and the persecution of Jews and Christians. Freedom, individuality, progress – all are neutered, corrupted or non-existent within Islam.
However, we the publicly educated knaves of the West are told by preening fembot politicians and 'experts' to accept the crass stupidity, forwarded by 'progressives' and socialists, that this murdering machine is a peaceful religion? Interesting. One supposes that Mr. Hitler was likewise an apostle of peace. The Nazi apes, like their Islamic brethren, also clambered about on top of the public corpse, discussing communal salvation, guaranteed social peace, and the 'volksgemeinschaft', or individual-community obligation, in supporting and loving the Hitler cult, and thereby achieving spiritual healing .
It was Hitler's desire after all to turn Linz into a Nazi Mecca and it would have been a short step to declare himself a prophet, inspired by the Norse gods to lead a greater Germany. In fact many German writers and socialist-fascist sympathizers described Hitler as a Christ-like saviour and god-inspired leader. For many Germans Hitler was god's instrument. The Nazi party a necessary vehicle to create a new earth-bound utopia of communal, socialist greatness. Mohammed would have been impressed.
Nazism was suffused with pagan cult practice and a deep hatred of Christianity. The Hitlerites hated not only Jews, but any philosophy or thought which made men 'weak', 'pacifist', 'bourgeois', and boring and middle class. Nazism was a revolutionary socialist doctrine. National socialism – rule of all by the state for the state, with nothing outside the state and everything in it – was in essence a massive program of communal madness.
Individuality, choice, debate, bourgeois living, peace, trade and commerce, dissension, religions, clubs – these and anything else which took away loyalty to the cult would and must be abolished. Guarantees – jobs, health, income, education, pensions – these would be given IF you are 100% loyal to the cult. There is nothing 'right wing' about such a program. This is collective madness.
Islam demands much of the same and given its origins as a pagan moon cult, this is not surprising. Most real experts – meaning those who are not populist politicians, nor the talking heads on TV – know that the word 'Allah' comes from the compound Arabic word, al-ilah. Al-ilah has always referenced the moon cult in Arabia, and in fact within al-ilah there are different moon deities depending on the cycle of the moon and its appearance in the heavens. It is not a mistake that the crescent moon is the symbol of Islam. Allah is the 'male' moon deity and the cycle of the crescent moon was his pagan cycle of ritual.
According to the Encyclopeida of Islam "Allah was known to the pre-Islamic Arabs; he was one of the Meccan deities" (I:406, ed. Gibb), and "Ilah . . . appears in pre-Islamic poetry . . . By frequency of usage, al-ilah was contracted to Allah, frequently attested to in pre-Islamic poetry" (III:1093, 1971). In the Encyclopedia of Religion: '"Allah" is a pre-Islamic name . . . corresponding to the Babylonian Bel' (I:117 Washington DC, Corpus Pub., 1979). According to Middle East scholar E.M. Wherry, whose translation of the Quran is still used today, in pre-Islamic times Allah-worship, as well as the worship of Ba-al, were both astral religions in that they involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars (A Comprehensive Commentary on the Quran, Osnabruck: Otto Zeller Verlag, 1973, p. 36).
The Quraysh tribe into which Muhammad was born was particularly devoted to Allah, the moon god, and especially to Allah's three daughters who were viewed as intercessors between the people and Allah.
In mad Mohammed's home town of Mecca, his family, part of Mecca's ruling tribe, worshipped three moon-astral based goddesses: Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat. All of these moon deities were worshipped in the shrine called the Kabah, a shrine which Mohammed's family helped to support and protect. Of particular importance was the veneration and kissing of the black asteroid rock called the Hubal signifying a gift from the heavens [later turned into a gift from God to Abraham by Mohammed]. Al-ilah was the common Arabic word for 'the god' or this supreme deity of the moon cult, though this God was never fully described by Mohammed or any Arab for that matter [it was largely an illiterate society].
Al-ilah was in essence an abstract concept which probably referred to 'something' which controlled the other moon and astral deities worshipped by the Arabs. It was no accident that when Mohammed started his cult he named it Allah or al-ilah meaning the highest God or deity. It would be a word and a concept well-known to all the disparate Arab tribes with their various beliefs as being something they could identify with.
The moon cult was thus well known to Mohammed and had been in existence for 3000 years before his birth. Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans who inhabited northern Arabia. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughters al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat. Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating, "Islam proved itself to be...a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry." Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded "There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews."
Why would moon cult worship pass from the Judeo-Christian world to the Arabic? Moon cult worship has existed for millenia in the Middle East, and polytheistic moon worshipping societies, such as pre-Mohammed Arabia, were the norm, not the exception. Islam is fundamentally a moon cult, polytheistic, primitive and contradictory. Equating 'Allah' which is never defined nor illustrated by Mohammed with Christian or Jewish ideas of God is simply madness.
Islam is not a religion in the Western Judeo-Christian sense of that word. Probably the best definition of 'religion' is this one by Michael York of Bath Spa University College, Bath, UK who defines it as:
"A shared positing of the identity of and relationship between the world, humanity and the supernatural in terms of meaning assignment, value allocation and validation enactment. A religion need not accept or believe in the supernatural, but it takes a position on. Likewise, some religions deny the reality or at least value of the world, but they still take a position."
Religion is largely monotheistic and an enterprise of spirituality, designed to provide a road map for living, a set of laws and ethics, and to regulate behavior through such ethics and perhaps ritual. At its core any religion must be based on some pagan practice. Religious ideas have to have antecedents. But here is the crucial difference between a real religion and a cult. In the cult, the individual has no free will, no independent power, no responsibility, no self-made destiny. He exists to please the cult and its symbol. Submission, follow, repent, and accept. Period. This is Islam. This is Nazism. This is commmunism.
Christianity is wholly different. There are pagan aspects to Christianity of course. Christianity was a Jewish offshoot and the Jews lived and developed their ideology in a turbulent and multi-ethnic and dimensional world. But Christianity exults the individual. There is free will. Freedom of choice. A division between the church and state. A protection of women and the weak. And there is the golden rule – 'do unto others as you would have done unto you'. None of these concepts can be found in pagan cults. The pagan cult demands the communal and the unthinking loyalty of the mass. Christianity preaches the opposite.
Islam is not a religon in our Western sense of what constitutes a religion. It is a cult of obedience and submission. Hence Islam meaning submission, is a very good word choice indeed for the millenia old Arab moon cult.
