Mr. McDonald, THIS is a BIG PART of the LIE!!!!!!
There is no “tortured version”. The mad mullahs and the rabid imams ARE Islam’s “reformers”. They are the ones leading the “faithful” back to the intent AND BEHAVIOR of their “prophet”.
HERE IS THE TRUTH!
Mahomet was a treaherous, lecherous, murdering, thieving, plundering pirate, warlord, polygamist, and pedophile!!
He promoted the concept of “taqiyah” whereby the Mahometan faithful could LIE to the infidel in order to get the upper hand and KILL him when he least expected it.
He had at least 12 wives, one of whom was only 5 years old when she was “betrothed” to him and only 9 years old when he consummated the “marriage”.
He personally beheaded between 600 and 900 Jews, depending on which boast in the Hadiths you believe.
Mahomet’s most zealous followers, his “reformers”, desire to follow the footsteps of their “prophet” as closely as possible.
They hold other Mahometans, those that were born into the religion, at the point of the sword, threatening them with DEATH if they “apostacize”, the meaning of which can vary from converting to another religion to simply refusing to kill a Jew.
THAT’s why Islam is INTRINSICALLY DANGEROUS.
Islam offers NO REDEMPTION to its adherents, other than martyrdom while killing Infidels, neither can Islam be redeemed.
It is a cult of death, treachery, destruction, and oppression. There is no other way to characterize it.
Jesus, on the other hand, gave His life willingly, not to kill others, but to set them free from their burden of Sin and the penalty of Death.
When given the “bum’s rush” in Samaria, His disciples asked why Jesus did not call fire down from Heaven to destroy the infidels. Jesus replied, “Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are, for the Son of man came not to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.”
Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount” is the definitive text on the Christian life; the Beatitudes, the Golden Rule, loving your enemies, doing the will of the Father in Heaven. THESE are the hallmarks of the most zealous exponents of Christianity! These are the VERY OPPOSITE of the rabid teachings of Mahomet!
Islam MUST BE EXPOSED for the rabid, hateful, virulently hegemonistic DEATH CULT that it is! There can be NO compromise with THAT FACT!
As long as there is an Islam, there will be murder, treachery, death, and destruction wherever it goes.
Benjamin Disraeli said it best, “The borders of Islam are bloody.”
Sayyid Qutb is called the father of modern Islamist fundamentalism. What is “fundamentalism”? It is an attempt to discover and follow the belief system that is actually described in the text, without pollution from centuries of watering down or denial of the demands it places on it followers.
And what values are “expressed” when a person discovers them? A violent, power-oriented, works-based system. One in which the highest reward is reserved for a person who dies while fighting the unbeliever.
This I believe is also far from the truth.
When Clinton's were in power the leftist were quiet. Now that a Republican holds the office of President their hate is directed at all things Republican, especially President Bush.
The Left in America would rather we lose our country than have this Adm. win in Iraq.
