Understanding the Mind of an Islamic Terrorist
by F. Figueroa
Its no surprise that the most serious threat to modern civilization today comes from the Middle East, specifically Muslim terrorists. Although the media and liberals insist this is not a clash of civilizations, what else could you call this unfettered hatred of the West? So intense is this acrimony that Islamic terrorists regularly sacrifice their lives just to murder a handful of innocent women and children. What causes these Islamic terrorists (many of them college educated) to willingly perform acts of the criminally insane? The answer, not surprisingly, is their deep-seated hatred for the Jews and their allies.
Recently at a reality-defense seminar, I met Mr. Figueroa. He presented an interesting report about Muslim terrorists and the rationale behind their thoughts and actions. I believe this is timely and important information, Know your enemy! Mr. Figueroa is intimately acquainted with Islam. He was a Christian by birth, and converted to Islam (when influenced by an older brother who had spent time in prison). After devoting himself to Islam for a number of years he converted back to Christianity, citing that he never found the peace that Islam promised. I have included some excerpts from his presentation with additional comments.
We in the west view history as a series of events that have passed; we move on, forgive and forget, we dont dwell on the past. That however is not the case with fundamentalist Muslims. For them history is ongoing, what happened before has a direct bearing on the present, they dont forgive, they dont forget, and revenge is something that is to be savored. Many people say Islam is a religion of peace, well if they had their way, it may well be -- a piece of me and a piece of you -- blown to bits! Perhaps thats what they really mean? Fundamentalist Islam is really a religion of vengeance.
#1: The seed of Islamic hatred towards the Jews and the west starts with two brothers of the Bible, Ishmael and Isaac. Arabs believe they are descended from Ishmael and that the Jews are descended from Isaac. According to Genesis, God gave the land of Canaan to Abraham and his descendants (for all time), however there was a problem, he had no sons. This was quickly resolved when Abrahams wife Sarah, suggested that he have sex with their Egyptian maid Hagar (in which a son was conceived). When Sarah conceives her own child, Isaac, she convinces Abraham to banish Hagar and Ishmael, thus Isaac (the first Arab) loses his rights and is expelled from his own land.
According to Islamic tradition, Abraham had eight sons rather than two. They say they were reared in Mecca not Hebron. They say it was Ishmael, not Isaac, whom Abraham was about to sacrifice on Mount Moriah when an angel stopped him. According to the Koran, the Abrahamic covenant, with its promises-including the title deed to the land of Israel-was passed down to the Arabs through Ishmael, rather than to the Jews through Isaac. Muslims believe the Jews changed and distorted the Bible in order to establish themselves as the heirs of Abrahams Covenant.
It is this jealously and resentment against the Jews that has created a hate that has no parallel in history. This hatred has continuously set off wars and atrocities for four thousand years. And it is that title deed to the land of Israel, through Abrahams lineage, which has been the source of the friction between the Jews and the Arabs right up to this very moment.
#2: The second issue that enrages fundamentalist Muslims is that they blame the Jews for killing Gods (Allahs) prophets. This was fully and clearly expressed by Saudi Arabia's King Ibn Saud as told to British Colonel H.R.P. Dickson on November 23, 1937 Our hatred for the Jews dates from God's condemnation of them for their persecution and rejection of Isa (Jesus) and their subsequent rejection of His chosen Prophet." He added, "that for a Muslim to kill a Jew or for him to be killed by a Jew ensures him an immediate entry into Heaven and into the august presence of God Almighty (Official British document, Foreign Office File No. 371/20822 E 7201/22/31; Elie Kedourie, Islam in the Modern World, London: Mansell, 1980, pp. 69-72).
#3: The third issue is the Crusades. Its alright that Muslims conquer foreign lands and kill everyone in sight in the name of Allah, but its not right that The west reclaims their lands! To be politically correct, western history texts [about the Crusades] are edited to eliminate explicit descriptions of violence; this is not the case in Muslim texts.
Wonderful things were to be seen. In the streets were seen piles of heads and hands and feet. One rode about everywhere amid the corpse of men and horses waded in the blood up to their knees, nay up to the bridle. It was a just and marvelous judgment of God, that this place should be filled with the blood of unbelievers. (James A. Haught, Holy Horros, 1990 pg 25-26)
The Mastermind of 9/11, Osama Bin Laden, often refers to the Americans as the crusaders (Daily News, Sept. 25, 2001). George Bush even vowed to unleash a full crusade to rid the world of evildoers. (Daily News, Sept, 17, 2001), for which he apologized later. That wasnt a very significant statement for westerners, but for Muslims, it sounded very much like a Freudian slip.
#4: The main incident that turned most of the Arab world against the west in the 20th Century was the British Mandate period from 1917-1948. The Ottoman Turks [who were non-Arabs but religious Muslims] ruled Palestine for 400 years (1517-1917). On December 9, 1917, as World War I was ending, the Turks surrendered Jerusalem to the British forces. In 1947, the U.N. voted to divide Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, and since 1949 the Arabs have been fighting for land they believe is theirs.
The Rewards of Terror
So what are the rewards of being a suicide bomber?
#1: According to the Hadith (a tradition of written reports, the source material for the customs of Muhammad) the end will not come until the Jews are destroyed, Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger saying, "The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews. (Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985).
#2: Being with Allah in Paradise
O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. (The Quran, Surah 9:38) What would they receive in paradise? They would receive a continuous flow of Virgin women And besides them will be chaste women; restraining their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty)" (37:48) some Hadiths state that there are 72 virgins for each man, and after having sex with them, they will become virgins once again. Thats great, self-perpetuating virgins, where do I sign up?
What if a Muslim decides not to go forth Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty (9:39). Muslims are not supposed to befriend either Jew or Christian) 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 (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust (The Quran 5:51).
Bin Laden said: I say to America I swear by God that those who live in America will never feel safe until people in Palestine feel safe they will not feel safe until the infidels armies leave the lands of Muhammad what America is tasting is only a copy of what our Islamic nation has tasted for 80 years. (Daily News, Oct.8, 2001, by Helen Kennedy).
#4: Arabs feel that nearly every bomb, bullet, tank, etc. that kills a Muslim comes from American dollars and supports Israel, so if an Israeli killed a Muslim, so did an American; they are both intertwined. Saddam Hussein also felt that way Americans should feel the pain which they inflicted on other peoples so that when they suffer they will know the best way to treat it [the pain] He citied the U.S. defense of Israel as a primary reason for Islamic fury (Daily News, September 16, 2001)
#5: They want a [fundamentalist] Islamic state. During the Classical Age (800 AD - 1200 AD) Muslims were quite sophisticated in the arts, sciences and mathematics. Muslims founded the worlds first university in the 10th century, in Cairo, Egypt. While the West was burning the writings of Plato, Aristotle, and Archimedes, Muslims preserved them in Arabic, while also developing mathematics, al-jabr (algebra) and chemistry, al-kemi (alchemy). The arts and sciences flourished for 400 years until they were invaded by the Mongols around 1200 AD. Many Muslims thought these invasions were punishment from Allah for living an unrighteous life and they decided to return to their pre-civilized state where they were the conquerors. That was the goal of the Taliban (meaning The Student) The Taliban said their aim was to set up the worlds purist Islamic State, banning frivolities like television, music, cinema and treating their women like humans. (BBC, Analysis: Who are the Taliban, December 20, 2000).
Spotting a Muslim Terrorist
Not all Muslims are terrorists, a minority are. So how can you determine if youre sitting next to one in a train, bus or plane?
#1: Muslim terrorists nowadays dont display facial hair, their spiritual leaders do, they also dont wear the typical headdress and robes often seen on television. They can look like you or me, wearing jeans and sneakers, or a business suit.
#2: Muslim terrorists like to wear fragrances, in particular frankincense and myrrh. They come in two forms, incense and perfume. These were extremely popular during the time of Muhammad, who was also a trader of these products.
#3: Use of Dhikr beads. These look similar to the rosary beads Catholics use. Dhikr beads are comprised of 99 beads, from which they recite the 99 names of Allah Allah's Apostle said, "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise." (Hadiths Bukhari Volume 3, Book 50, Number 894).
#4: The Wudu ceremony. All Muslims must do Wudu (ablutions) before prayer, "O you who believe! When you intend to offer prayer, wash your faces and your hands (fore-arms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles " (5:6). If you happen to go to see someone performing this ceremony in public, its time to run.
What does the Wudu look like?
01. Wash each hand up to the wrist - 3 times
02. Wash the mouth - 3 times
03. Sniff water into the nose and then eject it - 3 times
04. Wash face - 3 times
05. Run water through the beard with your fingers
06. Wash each hand and arm, including the elbow - 3 times
07. Wipe the head - 1 time
08. Wipe the ears - 1 time
09. Wash each foot and ankle - 3 times
10. Dry all wet body parts
#5: The Salat (prayer) while seated. They will most likely whisper the prayer to hide what theyre doing. Their head is bent slightly forward while their hands are folded across their stomach. Both hands are raised to their ears (with palms facing outward) then the hands quickly drop back to the folded stomach position. Depending on the time of day (they pray five times a day) they may raise their hands between two and four times. While praying, they will also keep their hands open, as if they were reading a book (towards the face), they dont close their hands in prayer like a Christian does since they believe they are receiving the blessings on their hands. Next they will look to their right and whisper to their guardian angles, and do the same on the left.
#6: Green is the favorite color of Islamic fundamentalists. Qurans are green, the majority of the prayer rugs are green, the color of the robe they wear in paradise is green (76:21), and its also Muhammads favorite color.
#7: Islamic fundamentalists are as human as everyone else. In many cases they are forced, pressured or coerced to take part in a suicide bombing. A few years ago they detonated the bombs themselves, but today, to insure that they go through with their deeds; bombs are set off by cell-phones from a distance. If you see someone sweating profusely, eyes glazed with a crazy stare, or any other nervous behavior get out of that area immediately.
#8: If someone suddenly jumps up and yells "Allah Akbar" (Allah is the Greatest) run for your life hes about to go out with a bang.

"We in the west view history as a series of events that have passed; we move on, forgive and forget, we dont dwell on the past. That however is not the case with fundamentalist Muslims."
This basicallly sums up why I don't mind killing this trash. No matter what you perceive as a wrong, don't take it out on me.
The only thing I really need to know about a terrorist mind is how it looks when a .308 round blows through the skull.
I would have said a .50 cal but that could only be described as a pink spray then.
To sum it up they are bitter towards Jews and the west because they are losers, and they know it.
Yep, they are bitter losers. Their leadership reflects that.
Allah or Jesus? by Rick Mathews
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their belief systems.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.
The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: "Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world. And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?"
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"
I responded, "So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to Heaven. Is that correct?"
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied, "Yes."
I then stated, "Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to Heaven!"
The Imam was speechless.
I continued, "I also have problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me.
Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah who tells you to kill me in order to go to Heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be with me?"
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with Rick's way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslim's beliefs.
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathews, is a well known leader in prison ministry.
Maybe the Islamic Iman harbors a criminal past which translates into justifying his thinking? Why else would someone come away with such insanity?
This article is a great detailed report of what has been observed about the behavior of psychopathic killers.
bump for the files...
That was one of the world's great recruiting pitches for the 7th C. mind. "Uncle Mohammed wants YOU! Enlist in the Horde today. Good pay plus 72 magical virgins if you get killed."
Nobody with the brains of a goat could believe this. A virgin is no longer a virgin once you -- well, you know. It would be a silly lie to say she is a virgin again. Allah does not lie.
The consensus of both sexes is that once a virgin gets past that hump, so to speak, she is changed. For one thing, she thinks you owe her, big time, and she is right. There will be marriage in paradise -- 72 marriages per martyr, plus (as my tagline points out), all those mothers-in-law. This goes on for the rest of eternity, and somewhere along the line, our hero may figure out that this wasn't "paradise" after all.
In fact, I wish I'd killed more of them when I had the chance.
It is good therapy knowing your tax dollars are being well spent, *when* they are well spent.
And it's the only Dept. routinely required to provide cost benefit analysis to Congress.
Being a veteran of the 1983 'peacekeeping' mission to Lebanon my opinion may be just a bit clouded by my experiences over there. But I don't think I'm alone in thinking that Earth would be better off if we reduced the Muslim population by say 10-15%. Provided of course we get the right 10-15%.
I say we start in Syria and then move on to the Bekka Valley. After we clean out those rats nests, we can move on to Tehran and Riyadh.
Wow, these guys have it bad. They are psychotic.
Sounds like they got Abraham mixed up with some other guy --- some Arab guy ---- and since the Jews were around a lot earlier than the Muslims and had their book written long before Mohammud was even born --- how would the Jews have twisted it?
You obviously didn't go to the same high school I did.
Thanks. I've read most of it before.
spread the word.
