Who is the enemy?Who is the enemy?
I was criticized because I said, “Islam is our enemy”. Actually I was, once, banned from a Forum for that reason.
OK. Who attacked us on 9/11/01?
Shouldn’t we define the enemy?
Is it Osama ben Laden? El Zawahry? El zarkawy? Just few Islamic “fanatics” here and there? Or maybe the imams in mosques all over the world who teach the Koran and Hadith and building up “soldiers of Islam” in our country and around the world?
Well, what do they teach? Do they have different books of Koran?
The Koran I studied in an Islamic country, in Arabic, by sheiks or imams (whatever they are called) is the SAME here in the US and everywhere else. It is the same Koran, which was translated to English, German, French and many other languages.
It is not MY opinion or MY idea that Islam is violent and does not tolerate any other religions or cultures, IT IS IN their book (the Koran).
Here are few samples right from the “The Holy Qur’an”:
“Fight against those who believe not in Allah nor the last day nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the people of the scripture, until they pay jiziah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Surah 9:29
“Fight them, until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s” Surah 193
“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is one of them.” Surah 5:51 & 3:28
“Kill the mushrikeen (polytheists, Christians and non-Muslims), wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush”. Surah 9:5
“O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you; and know that Allah is with those who are believers.” Surah 9:123
“And fight them until there is no more fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every king of) worship is for Allah (alone).” Surah 2:193
“Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties for (the price) that theirs shall be the paradise. They fight in Allah cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Koran.” Surah 9:111
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him” Surah 3:85
“O prophet, urge the believers to fight.” Surah 8:65
“The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off from opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world and a great torment is theirs in the hereafter.” Surah 5:33
“Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers (in fight-Jihad in Allah’s cause) those who disbelieve, smite (their) necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them). Thus you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the unbelievers till they embrace Islam.” Surah 47:4
Please, note that the word “fight” is not the correct translation of “kateloo” as it is read in the original Arabic Koran.
Katello means kill.
However, fight means “hareboo”.
See the differenc?
Some replies I get, try to show that other religions are also as violent.
This is not true.
However, we are fighting an enemy NOW, AT PRESENT, who is that enemy, if it wasn’t Islam?
I am writing the TRUTH. I am proving it with supported surahs with references.
Why is it so difficult to recognize the so very obvious enemy? Just look around you in the world. Who or what is causing the chaos and atrocities and why?
