Islam was founded by an Arab merchant named Muhammed about AD 622. Muhammad claimed to have received a revelation from an angel of God, and, although he initially feared his revelation had come from Satan, Muhammed later claimed to be the last and greatest of all of God’s prophets. Muhammed had fifteen wives (although he limited other men to four wives apiece) and sanctioned the beating of wives (Sura 4:34). Muhammed was well known for spreading his new religion by force. He commanded, “Fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them” (Sura 9:5), and he specified the proper way to execute an unbeliever was to cut his throat (Sura 47:4). Muhammed led raids against caravans to plunder their goods, broke oaths, ordered the murder of those who mocked him, and wiped out the last Jewish tribe in Medina—he killed all the men and enslaved the women and children. Interestingly, Muhammed acknowledged his own need to seek God’s forgiveness on occasion (Sura 40:55).
In stark contrast to the moral depravity of Muhammed, Jesus Christ was above reproach in every way (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus never married, He defended and honored women (John 8:1–11), and His law was “love one another” (John 13:34). Accordingly, Jesus never assassinated anyone, never beat a woman, never enslaved a child, never broke a promise, and never plundered a caravan. On the cross, when Jesus was mocked by those nearby, His response was, “Father, forgive them” (Luke 23:34).
WHEN YOU BELONG TO AN EVIL IDEOLOGY – ISLAM – YOU ARE AS EVIL AS THAT IDEOLOGY WHETHER YOU PERSONALLY COMMIT ACTS OF EVIL IN THE NAME OF THE IDEOLOGY OR NOT. INDEED YOU ARE AS EVIL IF NOT MORE EVILER THAN THE PEOPLE COMMITTING THESE HORRENDOUS ACTS OF EVIL. THEY ALSO SERVE WHO ONLY STAND AND WATCH.
I can state without Equivocation that:
THERE ARE NO GOOD WHITE SUPREMACISTS/ SKIN HEADS/KKK/ARYAN BROTHERHOOD (AB). THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
THERE WERE NO GOOD NAZIS/SS/GESTAPO. THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
THERE ARE NO GOOD NEO – NAZIS. THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
THERE ARE NO GOOD FASCISTS. THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
THERE ARE NO GOOD COMMUNISTS. THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
THERE ARE NO GOOD MUSLIM MEN. THEY ARE ALL ANIMALS.
They are ALL Barbaric, Barbarian Animals because they take an all loving God and turn him into a Barbaric, Barbarian Animal – A Monster of the Universe to justify their horrendous evil crimes.
THERE IS NO ISLAM WITH A HUMAN FACE.
One religion today regularly motivates large numbers of its followers to murder, behead, rape, and enslave people across the globe. That religion is Islam. Not Christianity. Not Judaism. Not Buddhism. Islam. Only Islam. You know this. I know this. Everyone paying attention knows this.
The Koran explicitly and repeatedly commands Muslims to engage in jihad or “holy war” whether they like it or not. “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know” (e.g., 2:216, 9:38). The Koran explicitly and repeatedly commands Muslims to “kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” (e.g., 2:191, 9:5), “strike off their heads” (e.g., 8:12, 47:4), make sex slaves of their wives and daughters (e.g., 4:24, 33:50), and continue this jihad “until all opposition ends and all submit to ‘Allah’” (e.g., 8:39, 9:29). You know this. I know this. Everyone paying attention knows this.
According to Islam, the “Prophet” Muhammad is the ideal role model for all boys and men; he sets the perfect example for how to live and wage jihad. Muhammad regularly killed and beheaded unbelievers (e.g., the massacre of Banu Qurayza), made slaves of those he conquered but didn’t kill (he had many slaves), “married” (i.e., repeatedly raped) slave girls (e.g., Safiyah and Rayhana), raped children as young as nine years old (e.g., Aisha), and founded a religion in which all such behavior is regarded as morally great because the “Prophet” did it. You know this. I know this. Everyone paying attention knows this.
Of course, not all Muslims engage in the above-mentioned behavior. But this does not change the fact that Islamic scripture commands or condones such behavior. It simply means that some Muslims don’t take Islam seriously. For that we can be thankful.
Unfortunately, as anyone can see by glancing at the news, many Muslims do take Islam seriously. Jihadists across the globe—from the Middle East to Africa to the United States to Canada—are murdering, beheading, enslaving, and raping “infidels” wherever and whenever they can. And these jihadists are supported by Islamic theocracies such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, which encourage and fund such barbarism.
Everyone paying attention knows at least that much. Granted, some know it in greater detail than others. But everyone with a functioning mind who has not been asleep since September 11, 2001, has a basic understanding of the foregoing facts.
Yet many people—from leaders of the (semi-)free world to leftist intellectuals, journalists, and celebrities—pretend otherwise. George W. Bush, for instance, says “Islam is peace” and a “noble faith.” Barack Obama says “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance”; “Islam is not part of the problem” but “an important part of promoting peace.” David Cameron says “Islam is a religion of peace”; jihadists such as members of Islamic State “are not Muslims” but “monsters.”
We have a moral responsibility not only to judge Nazism and its serious practitioners as evil, but also to judge those who whitewash them as evil; so too we have a moral responsibility not only to judge Islam and its serious practitioners as evil, but also to judge those who whitewash them as evil. There are, of course, degrees of evil among such whitewashers—but those degrees are degrees of evil. People who knowingly whitewash evil are by that fact and to that extent evil.
We who want to live and love life have a selfish, moral responsibility not only to say what we know to be true about Islam and its serious practitioners, but also to say what we know to be true about those who seek to whitewash them.
Islam is evil because (among other reasons) it commands or condones murder, slavery, rape, and the like; Muslims who take Islam seriously and thus seek to engage in such barbarism are evil for doing so; and those who whitewash these evils are evil for their part in advancing this god-awful nightmare.
So, do Christians and Muslims worship the same God? A better question is, “Do Christians and Muslims both have a correct understanding of who God is?” To this question, the answer is definitely no. Because of crucial differences between the Christian and Muslim concepts of God, the two faiths cannot both be true. The biblical God alone addresses and solves the problem of sin by giving His Son.
Quran verse 9:111 is the most evil, depraved, diabolical, immoral teaching in all of Islam.
9:111 “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden (Paradise) will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain”
Verse 9:111 means what it means. A Muslim who is killed or who kills fulfilling teachings 9:5, 9:29 and all the other teachings of murder, rape, terror, torture in the Quran ARE GUARANTEED ACCESSION TO AN EVIL PARADISE FILLED WITH FULL BREASTED, LUSTROUS EYED VIRGINS WHO REGENERATE AS VIRGINS AFTER EACH SEX ACT ANDWHOM THESE KILLERS AND MURDERERS OF ISLAM CAN SEXUALLY MOLEST FOR ALL ETERNITY.
“As for the righteous (Muslims)…We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes” – Q 44:51-54
The righteous (Muslims) they shall triumph…Theirs shall be voluptous women” – Q 78:31-33.
Muslim men are promised 72 young virgins for perpetual enjoyment. For the sake of propriety, I won’t include the quotes, but this all is right there in the Qur’an, in Surat 37:40-48, 44:51-55, 52:17-20, 55:56-58, 70-77, 56:7-40, and 78:31. Additionally, sodomy with young boys plays a role in the Muslim paradise (Surat 52:24, 56:17, and 76:19) with these boys being described using much the same language as was employed to describe the virgins. Of course, Islam’s paradise has plenty of wine, wealth, and food for the enjoyment of those who have passed on.
Muhammad was a man for whom the fulfillment of bodily pleasures was of paramount, and some would say, consuming importance.
Allah takes away from Muslims all rights and ownership of their life. Muslims will engage Allah’s stratagems of wars without any questions asked, and kill and get killed. This is the only mode of actions that will earn them Paradise. Allah is the peerless master of incitement of violence and bloodbath.
This evil Paradise for murderers is an outrageous affront and sin against God. It turns God into a pimp, the great whoremaster of the universe making a mockery of everything God stands for. Over 1400 years, upwards of 270,000,000 people have been murdered by Muslims so they could fulfill Quran teaching 9:111 and ascend to this place of obscenity.
You cannot ascend to Paradise by climbing on the corpses of the murdered. Those who kill in the name of and to the greater glory of God will ascend not to Paradise but descend into the fires of hell.
On 9/11 those 19 Muslim Saudi killers who rammed the twin towers in New York City slaughtering 2900 human beings were true Muslims obeying the teachings of Allah and by killing themselves murdering infidels believed they would ascend to this sexual place of evil.
These 2900 deaths were ordered by Allah in teaching Koran 9:5 “When the sacred months have passed away, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE THEM CAPTIVES AND BESIEGE THEM AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY AMBUSH, then if they repent and keep up prayer [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” They died in the fulfillment of Allah’s command to conquer the nations of the world for Islam.
The horrid reality of 9/11 is that if these Saudi holy killers had possessed nuclear weapons, they would have gladly detonated them killing 30 million infidels.
The ten commandments teach: Thou Shalt Not Kill.
The Koran teaches: Thou Shalt Kill Infidels.
In Islam, it is a holy religious duty to murder infidels. The Quran is written in the language of terrorism. It is filled with numerous verses urging the Muslims to terrorize the non Muslims, kill them, and take possession of their lands and properties. The important points to remember is that whatever Muhammad did to terrorize the infidels was actually the actions of God.
Among the many verses which exhort Islamist terrorism, the following verses stand out as naked aggression of Allah/Muhammad on the unbelievers: 2:63, 3:151, 8:12, 8:60, 8:59, 9:5, 9:29, 9:55, 11:102, and 17:59 etc. These are the Eternal Laws of Allah authorizating murder and extermination as a holy duty. THIS IS THE
EVIL INSANITY THAT IS ISLAM.
In Islam, deceit, torture, murder, assassination, massacre, genocide, pillage, robbery, enslavement and rape are halal (legal) acts, deserving of paradise, as long as they are perpetrated on infidels. These evil, immoral teachings are the ETERNAL Laws of Allah
These ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH are divine and can never BE CHANGED.
The lives of infidels are totally worthless. 2900 or 30 million or 300 million murdered infidels means a higher status in paradise with more virgins at your sexual disposal. The deaths of infidels is no more important then the deaths of cows in a slaughter house.
Estimates vary as to the number of virgins (2 to 72) per male Muslim in heaven (Sahih Bukhari 4:54:476, Al-Tirmidhi 2562). Actually the Tirmidhi Hadith states that 72 wives is the minimum, perhaps for the not so devout Muslims in the 7th heaven.
Mohammed said: “The least reward for the people of paradise is 80,000 servants and 72 wives” – Al-Tirmidhi 2562, 2687.
Prophets, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs in Islam’s first heaven may get up to 1000 virgins each. For maximum enjoyment of these numerous wives, Muslim men are guaranteed superb erection in heaven:
The Holy Prophet (Mohammed) said: “The believer will be given tremendous strength in Paradise for sexual intercourse”. It was questioned: “O prophet of Allah! can he do that?” He said: “He will be given the strength of one hundred persons.'” (Mishkat al-Masabih 4:42:24; Sunan al-Tirmidhi 2536).
When asked, “Do we have sex in Paradise?” Ibn Kathir, the renowned Islamic scholar explained: ‘Yes, by him who holds my soul in his hand, and it will be done…and when the sex is finished she will return pure and virgin again’ – Tafsir Ibn Kathir.
Al-Suyuti (15th century) another famous Islamic theologian and Quranic comentator adds:
“Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected (Muslims in heaven) never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world …Each chosen Muslim will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas.”
This pre-occupation with sex in heaven is consistent with the Islamic view of women as sex objects for gratifying Muslim men.
“Women are your fields, go (men) into your fields as you please” – Quran 2:223
In 1992, Islamic militants assassinated Egyptian freethinking intellectual – Farag Foda. Among his “offences” was his criticism of the Islamic debate of perpertual erection in heaven.
“Egypt’s most popular Islamic preacher, Abdel Hamid Kishk…had been telling his audience that Muslims who entered paradise would enjoy eternal erections and the company of young boys draped in earrings and necklaces…
“Some of the ulama (Islamic clerics), the religious scholars at al-Azhar University, the governments seat of Islamic learning, had disagreed. Yes, they said, men in paradise would have erections, but merely protracted, not perpetual. Other Islamic experts disputed the possibility of pederasty in paradise.
“Is this what concerns Muslims at the end of the 20th century?” Farag Foda asked in a column in October magazine. “The world around us is busy with the conquest of space, genetic engineering and the wonders of the computer, while Muslim scholars…were worried about sex in paradise.” Excerpts fron Judith Miller’s book; God Has Ninety-Nine Names. [Published by Simon & Schuster, 1997], pp. 26-27)
With its offer of prolonged erections and gratifying heavenly sex with virgins who “re-virginate” after sex, its little wonder Muslim terrorists, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs are in a hurry to enter Islam’s brothel paradise.
No rational, normal person can believe in such an evil, sexually depraved, irrational Paradise. If anyone believed in such a Paradise filled with virgins to be sexually molested for all eternity in the presence of God, and all they need do to enter this paradise is kill or be killed in the service of God – we would declare them criminally insane.
But ALL Muslims believe the Koran is the ETERNAL divine word of God – the LAWS OF GOD – that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just “fundamentalists,” the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places FOREVER; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim’s duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.
Therefore ALL Muslims must believe in verse 9:111 and ALL other teachings of the Quran otherwise they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam and must themselves be killed. This means that 1.2 billion Muslims believe in this Islamic paradise filled with virgin sluts.
In order for the Quran to be the divine word of God – every word, every teaching must be PERFECT. Since God is PERFECTION, every word, every teaching of God – A PERFECT GOD must be PERFECT.
If only one word/teaching of the Quran is not PERFECT – if only one teaching is not PERFECTION – MORAL PERFECTION – TRANSLATABLE MORAL CLARITY – MORAL PERFECTION for
ALL mankind for ALL TIME, then the entire Quran is not a work of PERFECTION and therefore not the word/teachings of God
Needless to say NO SUCH SEXUALLY DEPRAVED ISLAMIC PARADISE EXISTS.
Verse 9:111 is the incarnation of evil.
THEREFORE THE QURAN IS NOT THE WORD/TEACHINGS OF ANY GOD AND THEREFORE ISLAM IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY BOGUS – A SHAM AND A FRAUD.
The God worshipped by Christians and Jews and His paradise is dramatically different from Allah (the ANTI GOD) worshipped by Muslims and the ANTI GOD’s paradise.
Since no such Islamic paradise exists then Allah (the ANTI GOD) does not exist.
This evil paradise is the creation of Muhammad to entice his followers to murder, rape, torture, terrorize infidels and loot their property promising these holy killers eternal sexual delights.
If God exists then Islam is a total and complete rejection of God and His teachings. Those Muslims who kill and are killed in the service of this bogus Allah (of the Quran ) are not going to ascend to paradise but will descend and join their founder Muhammad and his master Satan in the fires of hell.

ISLAM? PEACEFUL? SORRY NO WAY!
Here’s where this is going: Roman Pope Calls For Global Authority Over Nation States For Common Good
The Roman Pope Francis told the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, according to the Catholic News Agency, that nation states should give way to globalization because the “common good has become global.”
Pope Francis said that nation states should give way to globalization calling on them to create “intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.”
On May 2 he told the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences that “In the current situation of globalization not only of the economy but also of technological and cultural exchanges, the nation state is no longer able to procure the common good of its population alone.”
He also said “The common good has become global and nations must associate for their own benefit,” and the pope called “building the common good of humanity, a necessary and essential element for the world balance.”
Pope Francis described to those gathered to hear him speak that the Roman Church observed with concern the re-emergence, almost everywhere in the world, of growing nationalism that neglects the common good.
He went on to describe how nations can strengthen their cooperation by attributing the exercise of certain functions and services to intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.
Pope Francis said that when a “supranational common good” is clearly identified, as in the case of climate change or human trafficking, it necessitates a special legal authority capable of facilitating solutions for all nations.
And he called for new paths of cooperation among nations to achieve peace today.
These comments are Signs of the Last Days prophecies (Revelation 13, 17) which foretell there is coming a federation of nations who form a one world government supported by an ecumenical church that will implement a common system of controls for the populations. The Roman Pope’s teachings are preparing the world for fulfillment of these prophecies.Source

This list could be greatly expanded, but the 50 examples above should be sufficient to show that we are living in the season of the Lord’s return. The Bible clearly teaches that God never pours out His wrath without warning for He is a just and loving God who does not wish that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). That’s why He has provided so many signs to alert us to the fact that we are living on the threshold of the Tribulation. — with Eric Exum.
Immediately following the horrific terrorist attacks on 9/11, many Westerners began to take notice of Islam for the first time. Many were shocked to find out that Islam’s holy book (the Koran) provides specific injunctions to engage in acts of violence as part of the “holy war” (jihad) in the cause of their religion. Soon many secular thinkers began to draw comparisons between Islamic terrorist attacks and the violence found in the Bible, particularly the Old Testament. But are these comparisons valid? Are the commands of Yahweh to the Israelites in the Old Testament the same as jihad as prescribed in the Koran? What is the difference between the violence found in the Bible and Islamic jihad?
To answer this question, we must define what we mean by “jihad.” The word jihad means “striving” or “struggle.” Within Islam, there are several categories of jihad. The word can be used to describe various types of struggles such as “jihad of the pen” (which would involve persuasion or instruction in the promotion of Islam) or “jihad of the heart” (a battle against one’s own sin). However, the most well-known form of jihad is that which involves physical violence or warfare in the cause of Islam. While the Koran does contain passages that encourage Muslims to engage unbelievers with grace and persuasion (Sura 16:125), the Koran contains other verses that appear to command Muslims to engage in offensive physical warfare against non-Muslims.
In Sura 9 we read, “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem [of war]; but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful” (Sura 9:5). Also in Sura 9, “Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, [even if they are] of the People of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [tribute] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29).
In addition to the teachings of the Koran, Muslims also follow the Hadith, a supposedly inspired record of Muhammad’s words and actions. The Hadith explains how Muhammad instructed his commander when sent out on an expedition, “When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to [accept] Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. . . . If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them” (Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Number 4294).
But what about the violence commanded by God in the Old Testament? Is that any different? The most often-discussed episodes of violence in the Old Testament are Yahweh’s command for the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites and take possession of the land He had promised Jacob’s children. When assessing these incidents, we must understand the context in which these events took place. The Canaanites were a brutal and wicked culture that frequently engaged in incredibly decadent behavior. As Christian author Norman Geisler put it, “This was a thoroughly evil culture, so much so that the Bible says it nauseated God. They were into brutality, cruelty, incest, bestiality, cultic prostitution, and even child sacrifice by fire. They were an aggressive culture that wanted to annihilate the Israelites.”
By ordering the destruction of the Canaanites, God enacted a form of corporate capital punishment on a people that had been deserving of God’s judgment for some time. God had given the Canaanite people over 400 years to repent (Genesis 15:13–16). When they did not, the Lord used the Israelites as an instrument of judgment on an evil and deeply depraved society. The Canaanites were not ignorant as news of God’s awesome power had reached them (Joshua 2:10–11; 9:9). Such awareness should have driven them to repentance. The example of Rahab and her family is a sure proof that the Canaanites could have avoided destruction if they had repented before Israel’s God (Joshua 2). No person had to die. God’s desire is that the wicked turn from their sin rather than perish (Ezekiel 18:31–32; 33:11).
We must also remember that Yahweh did not sanction all of the wars recorded in the Old Testament, and that the wars specifically commissioned by Him beyond the time of Joshua were defensive in nature. A number of the battles that Israel fought on the way to and within Canaan were also defensive in nature (Exodus 17:8; Numbers 21:21–32; Deuteronomy 2:26–37; Joshua 10:4).
The more difficult question, however, has to do with God’s command to kill all of the Canaanites, including the women and children (Deuteronomy 7:2–5; Joshua 6:21). In response to this, we can point out that, while the Bible records that such a command was given, it may well be that, in some cases, no women or children were actually killed. Most of the battles in Canaan would probably have involved only soldiers, and, given the chance, women and children would likely have fled. As Jeremiah 4 indicates, “At the noise of horseman and archer every city takes to flight; they enter thickets; they climb among rocks; all the cities are forsaken, and no man dwells in them” (Jeremiah 4:29).
In conclusion, there is a radical difference between the violence in the Old Testament and Islamic jihad. First, the violence prescribed by God in the Old Testament was intended for a particular time and limited to a particular people group. The conquest of Canaan had clear limits, geographically and historically, making it very different from the continuing Islamic commands regarding jihad. The conquest of Canaan set no precedent to continue the warfare beyond what God had commanded. In contrast, the Koran actually prescribes and condones military jihad in the promotion of Islam. At no time in the Bible do we see God commanding His people to kill unbelievers in the promotion of biblical faith.
It is beyond dispute that, in its earliest years, Islam was promoted by the sword. It is exactly the opposite for early Christianity. Many of the early Christians were severely persecuted and martyred for their commitment to Christ. As one Christian philosopher put it, “Both Islam and Christianity were spread by the sword, but the swords were pointing in opposite directions!”
Finally, for the Christian, the final and complete revelation of God is in Jesus Christ, who was remarkably non-violent in His approach. If a Christian engages in violence in the name of Christ, he is doing so in direct disobedience of His Master. Jesus taught that all who live by the sword will die by it (Matthew 26:52). The teachings and example of Muhammad are quite different. A Muslim who desires to commit violence in the name of Islam can find ample justification for his action both in the Koran and in the words and actions of the prophet Muhammad.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
