The Face of Islam

It seems like every time we turn around some Muslim group is making a great effort to piss us off. Meanwhile the other part of the Islamic world, that is the majority, stands by and quietly condones their actions. At least, that is the way it feels.

Just Imagine how you would act if you were a Christian and small but powerful factions of Christians were sweeping the world and forcing, at the point of a sword, every group they encounter to convert to your religion. I would think you would be torn, enough so that you begin rationalizing your response (or lack thereof) in order to ease their conscience. Part of you is afraid of becoming a target of those who are spreading right through wrong. Another part of you may want to stand up for the victims and fight for their right to deny or even hate your religion. For most people, they would turn their eyes from the evils and accept that the ends justifies the means.

This is exactly what happened roughly 500 years ago when the Christians did exactly that, they ran around the world forcing their religion on everyone they met. Meanwhile, millions of "real" Christians stood by and allowed virtual genocide. It is a part of our history that we are afraid to think of because it is downright shameful, at the same time, most of us are kind of, for lack of a better term, happy with the results. The international acceptance of Christianity feels pretty good compared to what people must have experienced a thousand years ago.

Nearly 500 years after Christ brought his message to the middle east, another great profit unified the religions of that territory. The Muslims believe that their profit was sent by God to bring peace to the world but that he was merely human but nearly as perfect as any human could be. They worship his actions not his divinity. Their Bible is very similar to the Christian Bible and they believe in all of the same things, in fact, they consider Christ to be an important profit as well. They are not much different than Christians were at the same time (roughly 1500 years) in their history.

Some time in our future, the Muslims will come to accept Christians as brothers, just as Christians consider Jews to be our brothers now. While Christians have added Christ and his teachings to the Bible of the Jews, Muslims have added their own profit to our Bible. The fact is; we are all in this together, Christians, Jews, Muslims and nearly every other faith that celebrates a single God came from the Zoroastrians that were handed the very first instruction manual so long ago.

Knowing this, it is time to reconsider a few unfounded and unreasonable opinions. First of all, we tend to look at all Islamic people with some level of suspicion. It is hard to tell the good from the bad just by looking into their eyes. Imagine again what it must have been like for good Christians during the Crusades. Maybe we should consider the often repeated phrase "trust but verify" when confronted by this suspicion. It is wrong to condemn people for the actions of those who claim to lead them.

Regarding the proposed building of the Islamic worship center near "ground zero", I refuse to make any effort to stop them. I would be violently opposed to anyone who would prevent me from expressing my right to practice my religion in any place where I choose under the guise of hatred for the actions of some radical christian group. This freedom is Guaranteed by our Constitution and I am not one to pick and choose which rights we protect based on popularity. Having said that, I think it was a senseless move by those who intend to do it. If my religion had been hijacked by a group of radical thugs and crashed into Mecca I would certainly avoid rubbing salt into those wounds. These morons must know that they are starting something with this and it is only driving a bigger wedge between the two cultures.

If you are Muslim I want you to know that I respect your religion but you need to work towards a change in leadership. Believe me, I feel your pain... I would hate to be judged, as an American, by the actions of President Obama and it is very difficult to bring society to help me make that change in leadership. It is, however, vital to the future of America for me, and others like me, to work tirelessly to bring the necessary cultural changes to our nation. It is equally necessary for you to do the same.

very wrong....sorry...but because of the issue where Ishmail was born out of Abraham's servant and not his wife makes him the son born out of sin. Which in turn makes the Muslims go crazy. When Muhammad died, and the split of his religion, I.e. Sunnis and Shi'ites, that caused an issue. Plus, Muhammad was kicked out of Jerusalem because he talked about himself as being a prophet instead of believing in Jesus. There are many many many issues with the Qur'an. It teaches that rape, murder, stealing, and lust is ok. So, as far as your pro Muslim post: they are not our friends in God. They are the most radical, and murderous religion on earth. I have written many papers on this fact and would be happy to provide proof by showing you which Surrahs they're in. Muhammad had a 6 yr old wife, he raped many women, he plundered innocent villages, he robbed numerous caravans, and he did many more things. The Qur'an brags about talahese incidents. It it a fouled religion that is dangerous and needs to be monitored. Look at the Crusades. It was started my the numerous ransackings of Jerusalem, and the taking over of that city by the Muslims. The Christians retaliated and we're now the bad guys. The same crap is happening now. And finally, the Qur'an is not like the Bible. The Qur'an was "told to Muhammad via Gabriel. " Not by God Himself like in the Bible. Plus, the Bible is the most scrutinized book in the world. People have been trying to prove it wrong for centuries and can't.

Christianity is based on love, and the FREEDOM to choose the religion or not.

Islam is a religion based on fear, intimidation, and the "convert or die" attitude. If one doesn't convert, then a tax (jiza, or something along those lines) is placed on him. If they don't pay the tax, they are killed.

So, which would you choose? Freedom to choose, or die if you don't choose that religion?

Thank you for the factual historical information, but, the purpose of the post was to separate fact from reality. The reality of Islam is that, like the christian followers of the crusades, followers of Islam are following faith rather than historical fact. Many of them are unaware of the true history of their prophet, in fact, many of them are poorly educated and just plain poor.

I simply wanted to show the perspective of those who follow Islam, innocently, while its leaders play dirty. The vast majority of muslims are good people who fear the radicals who lead them but do not share their ideals.

True Muslims who follow the Qur'an are radical. The ideology it teaches is disgusting. Please read the actual text itself. It is not a nice religion. Just because the religion can trace itself back to Abraham doesn't make us brothers in the faith. Please read the text and people who truly follow the book are the radicals. The ones who claim its a passive religion are the new faithful, and will be killed if they live in a Muslim nation. This is a subject that I know a whole lot about. The true religion of Islam is not as what it seems.
