This article shows the basis for a radical and fundamentalist Islam and i have written it purely in my understanding of the genesis of Islamic terrorism. The Islamic Community has to confront the terrorists in their midst both in words and deeds by practically opposing their interpretation of Islam, if they believe that it is not the true interpretation and as long as the Muslim community does not confront and denounce these terrorists, they cannot complain that non muslims are misrepresenting Islam or biased or Islamophobic.
The actions of Islamic terrorist groups operating through out the world are well known. They have bombed and destroyed buildings and wasted thousands of innocent lives. During the last 20 years, Muslim terrorists have targeted and murdered tens of thousands of males, females, adults, and children. All over the world, in Kenya, Algeria, Indonesia, Egypt, Russia, France, South America, United States of America and even Nigeria and most recently in Sweden, all in the name of Islam. They have attacked and murdered those they felt were a threat to their aims and no one has been spared by these treacherous and diabolical group of people.
These diabolical acts of murder prompted me to ask these questions- Why are these groups Islamic? What does the religion of Islam have to do with terrorism? Is there a link between the two? How do these groups justify murdering civilians based upon Islamic values? Are terrorism and murder actually allowed under Islam? I examined the basis for Islamic terrorism found within Islam. Starting with Muhammed and reviewing his teachings and his actions, and then visiting what other Muslims have taught on the fundamentals of Islamic terrorism.
When I talk about terrorist actions, I am talking about motive and action. I am focusing on the violent actions Muslims carry out in the name of Islam.On the other hand, Muslims who carry out bombings, like the ones in United State, UK and Sweden - in which hundreds of innocents died, do so because they feel they are attacking their enemies and have Allah's sanction to do so. That is a terrorist action and it is untolerable in any sense of judgement. A terrorist is defined as one who engages in acts of terrorism. Terrorism is defined as the unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
When Muhammad started out preaching his religion of Islam he was not violent, He was even persecuted for preaching his religious ideas- Islam and denigrating the pagan religions of the Meccans. Prior to his leaving for Medina, he claimed that he received a revelation allowing him to fight the Meccans.He claimed the Quraysh has persecuted his followers and seduced some from their religion and accused him of lying. He gave permission to his followers to fight and protect himself against those who wronged them until there is no more seductions and until God alone is worshipped. It can be understood that the Meccans persecuted Muhammed and his religious teachings and things were so bad for him there, the Tafians also rejected him and abused him but he continued to proclaim himself as the prophet. Eventually, a group of feuding Arabs in Medina accepted him as their prophet. They hoped he could help them maintain peace.They eventually made a pledge to support Muhammad in war against the Quraysh. Now, Muhammed knew that he has got the able and armed men to support him, and he went from being a warner to being an aggressor. In Medina, Muhammed had conflict with Jews and Pagans in the area. He became a bigoted criminal boss, ordering his men to wantonly murder Jewish people.I likened him to Hitler who murdered Jews. It is remarkable that tradition attributes Muhammeds most cruel acts to divine order. There were many heinous acts which i cannot all put down here that was perpetrated on all those who opposed his teaching and all those who laughed at him. From then onwards, Islam gradually transformed from a purely spiritual mission into a militant and punitive organizations whose progress depended on a booty from raids and revenue from zakat tax. Muhammeds methodology was simple- kill those who are threats to your credibility and power over others.
Many Muslims are peace-loving people and are thoroughly disgusted about the acts of Islamic terrorism but unfortunately, most Muslims do not know these historical facts about their own prophet.Most Muslim terrorists are usually well-educated in Islam. They are pious people and Spiritual leaders that do what they do and how they do it following the example of their prophet. In Islam war is waged to establish supremacy of the God only when every other argument has failed to convince those who reject His Will and work against the every purpose of the creation of mankind.This shows you that world of Islam is in perpetual struggle against the non-muslims. To them, it is a sufficient answer to make that the defiance of God's authority by one who is His slaves exposes that slave to the risk of being held guilty of treason and as such a one, in the perspective of Islamic law, is indeed to be treated as a sort of that cancerous growth on that organism of humanity.- removed or be put to death.
Millions of Muslims around the world are not terrorists. Many of them reject the actions of their Muslim brethren around the world. Unfortunately, since Islam teaches world domination, these moderate Muslims rarely raise their voices in protest. If the Israelis bomb Hezbollah camps in Lebanon, Muslims in New York, Detroit, and Los Angeles will organize a mass demonstration. But getting Muslims to condemn the terrorist actions of their brethren, say of those in Iraq when the terrorist massacred Christians is like pulling teeth. While the Muslims world wide continually condemn Israel, few Muslims have ever raised their voices in protest over mass terrorism in the world. It is very obvious that the seeds of terrorism are planted deep within the theology of Islam. This theology, when free to grow and blossom, shows itself in the actions normal Muslims, in Muslim countries take when they feel that Islam is challenged. The mob attacks in Pakistan, and the attacks by the Muslim mobs in Nigeria and Iraq, are examples of Muslim - Islamic violence - mob mentality. And as was demonstrated in "Not Without My Daughter", who knows when a peaceful, liberal or moderate Muslim will turn to fundamentalism and embrace the violence of Islam?
When you compare the live of Jesus Christ and Mohammed, you will see that Jesus condemned those who murdered without repentance ,.."Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood" Revelation 22:15.
Jesus also said in John 8:44 that Satan was a murderer from the beginning, and that those who sought to murder Him were Satan's children but as soon as he could, Muhammad began to have people murdered. Today, the Islamic terrorists who believes that they have the sanctions and authority from God are on rampage,murdering innocent souls. Jesus taught that one day people would murder Christians thinking they would be doing service to God. Today, in Muslim countries, like Iran for instance, Muslims murder ex-Muslims who have become Christians. And in other countries like Iraq, they attack and threaten others. Jesus taught Christians to love their enemies, to pray for those who persecute them. Jesus didn't send his disciples out to murder people in the night just because they do not accept his teachings. Take the example of Christ and the Samaritans opposition to Jesus. "As the time approached for Him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. And he set messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?" And he said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of, for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." And they went to another village." Luke 9:51-56
Muhammad would have ordered his men to attack the Samaritan village, then kill or enslave the people, and take all their possession as plunder and all them infidels. After Muhammad gained power, he sent his armies out to attack non-Muslims.
Who then really brought God's message of His love for mankind? Who really taught peace? Its a food for thought.
