After almost 31,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks since 9/11, it’s reasonable to conclude that something is rotten in Islam.
But we don’t live in reasonable times... .
Actually, when taken as a whole (and evidenced by its history), there’s nothing more barbaric than Muhammad’s devout minions.
Researcher/ author Raymond Ibrahim shared quotes throughout history that expose what some of history’s most classic musers thought of Islam. Many are familiar with Winston Churchill on Islam but, few knew the following sages opined on the subject:
Theophanes, the Byzantine chronicler (d.818):
He [Muhammad] taught those who gave ear to him that the one slaying the enemy - or being slain by the enemy - entered into paradise [see Koran 9:111]. And he said paradise was carnal and sensual - orgies of eating, drinking, and women. Also, there was a river of wine... and the women were of another sort, and the duration of sex greatly prolonged and its pleasure long-enduring [e.g., Koran 56: 7-40, 78:31, 55:70-77]. And all sorts of other nonsense.
St Thomas Aquinas, one of Christendom’s most influential philosophers (d.1274):
He [Muhammad] seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh urges us... and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected, he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine... Muhammad said that he was sent in the power of his arms - which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants [i.e., his 'proof' that God was with him is that he was able to conquer and plunder others]... Muhammad forced others to become his followers by the violence of his arms.
Marco Polo, world famous traveler (d.1324):
According to their [Muslims’] doctrine, whatever is stolen or plundered from others of a different faith, is properly taken, and the theft is no crime; whilst those who suffer death or injury by the hands of Christians, are considered as martyrs. If, therefore, they were not prohibited and restrained by the [Mongol] powers who now govern them, they would commit many outrages. These principles are common to all Saracens.
When the Mongol khan later discovered the depraved criminality of Achmath (or Ahmed), one of his Muslim governors, Polo writes that that the khan’s attention [went] to the doctrines of the Sect of the Saracens [i.e., Islam], which excuse every crime, yea, even murder itself, when committed on such as are not of their religion. And seeing that this doctrine had led the accursed Achmath and his sons to act as they did without any sense of guilt, the khan was led to entertain the greatest disgust and abomination for it. So he summoned the Saracens and prohibited their doing many things which their religion enjoined.
Alexis de Tocqueville, French political thinker and philosopher, best known for Democracy in America (d.1859):
I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.
Yet, despite the plethora of historical evidence and the empirical evidence via daily jihad attacks, the Left (in the media and politics) refuses to believe the true nature of Islam.
With no factual information, the moment an Islamic jihad attack occurs, they exculpate Islam from any responsibility, despite the fact that tens of thousands of Islamic attacks have occurred since 9/11, and over half a billion people (conservative estimate) have been murdered by Islam's followers in the past 1,400 years.
But would the same conclusion be reached about Nazism, though there were some Nazis who didn’t participate in the slaughter of six million Jews and 11 million other precious souls? Of course not. Nazism, based on its precepts, is still an abomination.
Why then, when devout followers of Islam (based upon its own holy texts, the Quran and Hadiths, and its violent demonstrations) act out, does the Left vehemently defend Islam?
Well, there are only two possible explanations: either the Left is intentionally and intractably stupid on Islam because of their dreams of a communist utopia, or they are incapable of seeing past the unicorns and fairy dust to realize that when Islam takes over... they’ll be the first to go.
My caveat: keep the Left away from positions of power where they can rule over you; their designs for our free society involve pushing up daisies.
Shalom through strength.
