The Essence of Islam


The following is a short encapsulation of Islam:


  1. Prior to the 7th century (the 600s) the Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula were a fairly peaceful people.
  2. The Quraysh tribe of Mecca lived in a small enclave on one of the lesser trade routes of the time which contained a pagan shrine to a number of stone idols where visitors would stop to worship – the primary of which was called “Allah.”  The visitors made offerings to the idols (which the Meccans pocketed), and also paid the Meccans for other needed essentials.  The keepers who profited from the pagan shrine were the uncles of a youth called Muhammad.
  3. Muhammad was orphaned at an early age when his father died and his mother disowned him.  He was brought up by one of his Uncles and his Grandfather and is reputed to have been badly mistreated.  He traveled with his Grandfather on trading caravans.
  4. When Muhammad came of age, he married an older woman who ran a trading caravan out of Mecca.  Along with his Uncle and Grandfather, she became his patron and protector (the mother he always wanted).  Together, she and Muhammad schemed to take over the pagan idol concession by having Muhammad claim to be the “prophet” of the primary idol – called “Allah.”
  5. The Meccans (and his relatives) laughed and derided him and eventually ran him out of town; and caused him to settle in Medina, where the Jewish “Yathrib” tribe resided.
  6. Here the illiterate Muhammad learned about the Jewish Torah & Christian Bible and their host of “prophets.”  Muhammad purchased written stories from the Yathrib Jews and then sought to make himself the last of the “prophets” of “the Book.”  In an effort to validate his claim, he declared that he had flown to Mount Moriah in Jerusalem in a vision and was transported to heaven (this is the reason for the Islamic “Dome of the Rock;” & how Jews & Christians became “the people of the Book;” & how any of the “good” biblical references became a part of the Qur’an; & why many early Muslim prayer Quiblahs pointed toward Jerusalem rather than to Mecca).
  7. When Muhammad sought to obtain (or purchase) the assistance of the Yathrib Jews in his claim to be the last “prophet” of “the Book,” they also laughed and derided him (The Jews & the Meccans would soon pay a price for their laughter & derision).
  8. Because he still wanted to take over the pagan idol concession in Mecca, the illiterate Muhammad again claimed to be the last “prophet” of the (Judeo/Christian) “Book” and that (the stone idol)  “Allah” was his god; and he began to preach throughout the countryside about his “prophetic” dreams and visions.
  9. Muhammad was able to convince a band of brigands in the hills surrounding Medina that he was the last “prophet” and “Messiah” that the Jews were waiting for; and that they would profit handsomely by raiding Meccan caravans if they followed him.  (Muhammad’s assertion became the basis of the claim that the Torah and the Bible had been corrupted by the Jews & Christians and justified Jihad against them).  In these actions, Muhammad sought to pressure the Meccans into making an accommodation with him over the operation of the pagan idol concession in Mecca – which they eventually did in an effort to stop the caravan raids.  Muhammad agreed to renounce his god “Allah” and worship the other Meccan idols; and the Meccans agreed to worship his idol “Allah” on a reciprocal agreed upon timetable – and all done in exchange for a partnership in the Meccan idol concession.
  10. Muhammad had to renounce the arrangement and claim that Satan had put the words in his mouth when his followers objected to the terms because they invalidated his claim to be the final “prophet” of “the Book” and that his god was “Allah.” [This event (plus an early declaration by Muhammad that he had been terrified and possessed by an evil spirit during one of his usual solitary vision-seeking meditations within a dark cave) form the core of the iniquitous passages of the Qur’an known as the “Satanic Verses” of Salmon Rushdie’s death sentence notoriety].
  11. To make a long story short, Muhammad fared badly raiding the Meccan caravans and had to resort to first threatening the Yathrib Jews and forcing them to pay a tax against attack (which later became known as the “jizya” tax for all non-believers); and then attacking, seizing their property and killing them.  The same fate awaited the people of Mecca for rebuffing him.
  12. Needless to say, when Muhammad ran out of places to plunder, he had to expand his area of operations to keep the boys satisfied.  Those who were conquered could “submit” and join; or pay the “jizya” tax.  Each time the troops became restless, new “prophetic” dreams and visions were concocted that were tailored to keep Muhammad in power and ensure the continued “submission” of his subjects.  Death in battle with the unending service of young maids in heaven was the ultimate reward.  Moderation was ridiculed.  Questioning or renouncing his (Islamic) teachings, or converting to Christianity, carried a sentence of death.   Lying, cheating, stealing, raping, killing, breaking peace treaties, constraints against discussing Islam with infidels or comparing Islam to other religions – nothing was exempt from the need of Islam to expand and conquer – and when there was nothing left to conquer — to fight amongst themselves for what was left.
  13. After Muhammad’s unforeseen death, all of his lieutenants fought for the leadership of the “caliphate” of terror, rape, death and destruction that Muhammad had concocted; and each one sought to be the ruling Caliph.
  14. The resulting rulers of the leading Arab “Caliphates” knew a good thing when they saw it, and within the next two hundred years, adopted Muhammad as the only true “prophet” of “Allah.”  Since Islam had evolved out of an “oral” and not a “written” tradition, a compilation of Muhammad’s life and sayings would be required to continue the scam, and the placement of the life and “oral” sayings of the “prophet” within the Qur’an did not have to be in any chronological order.  Muslims have also insisted on confining the Qur’an to Religious Arabic – a language that is so difficult to learn with its complex grammar and antiquated vocabulary, that it is ranked second by linguists to Chinese.  What better way to foster confusion and keep their uneducated (or even better educated) people in “submission” to their will – and also expand their areas of influence.
  15. One of the problems that Islamic leaders have today is that the moderate and more educated Muslims now have access to the Internet.  Here they can learn that the Qur’an evolved out of a chronological written collection of the life and “oral” sayings of Muhammad contained within Ishaq’s “Sira” (or Biography);  Tabari’s “Ta’rikh” (or history of Islam – called “Sunnah”) and the Hadith collections (or oral reports of Muhammad and his companions) compiled by Bukhari and Muslim.   The collection had to first be compiled for the leading Caliphs in order to write the Qur’an (“the ‘new’ Book”).  When these are read in chronological order, Islam is exposed for what it is; therefore, any thorough chronological study of the Qur’an and Islam is harshly impugned and discouraged.
  16. One of the claims of the Imams of Islam today is that the record of Muhammad’s “oral” tradition has come directly from Allah and has never changed over time (and that is what makes it superior to the Judeo/Christian traditions).  The problem here is that a set of old records exists in Munich, Germany, (that originated from early 20th Century German scholarship and photocopies taken of old copies of the Qur’an in the Middle East, North Africa [Morocco] and Europe); and also from photocopies taken in Yemen in the 1980s (that the Islamic state will not now release for public examination), that differ from the current construction, and prove conclusively (through prior expert analysis of the microfilm copies) that the writings of the Qur’an have evolved over time – and are therefore not the unchanging and unwavering word of “Allah.”
  17. The foundation of Islamic teaching is based upon the view that God chose Arabs because they had good memories, and forms the basis for the rationale that the Qur’an couldn’t be changed the way the Torah and the Bible were corrupted by the Jews and Christians (to suit the needs of Muhammad).
  18. 18.     The essential underlying tenet of the world’s major religions is that man’s primary aspiration should be to gain the acceptance and reward of a peaceful and loving God through personal growth in peace and love toward one and all.
  19. In contrast, the essence of Islam evolves from Muhammad’s desire to be accepted as the last “prophet” and “Messiah” that the Jews were waiting for – a desire that led him to purchase the Jewish Torah and the Christian Bible from them; and to include their teachings of peace and love within the pages of the Qur’an.  To justify his contention, those teachings in the Torah and the Bible that contradicted his claim to be the last “prophet” and “Messiah,” had to be disparaged and derided as corrupted and unworthy of acceptance; and anyone who refused to accept that premise was deemed to be an infidel deserving of subjugation and death.  (When Muhammad twisted the Biblical accounts to serve his interests, the Jews in Yathrib, today’s Medina, mocked him; and, in doing so, they unwittingly unleashed the birth of Jihad).
  20. In pointing to the Biblical passages of peace and love included within the Qur’an, moderate Muslims today desire to define those references as a Jihad of the spirit; and, at the same time, choose to ignore the central construct of Islam – the Jihad of submission, subjugation, destruction and death – fighting against the infidel in Allah’s cause.
  21. It would be illogical and irrational to think that an understanding and loving God would shift from a reliance on literate Jewish prophets to a single illiterate Arab, and renounce love and peace – in favor of hate and war.
  22. Islam is a geopolitical dogma of death and destruction masquerading as a “religion,” that is constructed for the exclusive benefit of the leaders of Islamic Caliphates in their desire to control their people, keep them in a state of constant “submission,” and expand their areas of influence – through the subjugation and death of infidels.
  23. So much for the “religion” of “peace.”




The web links below are provided in order to verify and add emphasis and reinforcement to the encapsulation of Islam provided above:


The following link is a Wall Street Journal article written by Andrew Higgins on “The Lost Archive” of early Qur’anic texts that were photocopied both prior and subsequent to the Second World War, and that indicate that Qur’anic texts have changed over time.


In contrast to the above link, two divergent views on its presentation are provided:        1) The viewpoint of the uninformed Muslim [considered a “Dimi” or useful idiot (along with uninformed Judeo/Christians) by the fundamentalist Muslims]; and 2) The viewpoint of a more radicalized fundamentalist Muslim:


Among other things, the following link, taken from the Imprimus Archives of Hillsdale College, provides verification that reinforces the concept that the Qur’an is deliberately not written in chronological order.


The link below provides an additional perspective with respect to “Islamic” political views and beliefs. It should be noted that it was the Germans who found, studied, microfilmed, and concluded that the original early 20th Century and later 1980s Yemeni Qur’anic texts were divergent from the current construction, and were therefore at variance with the adamant Islamic claim that Muhammad’s “oral” tradition has come directly from Allah and has never changed over time.  This information was kept hidden during WWII to ensure Arab Islamic allegiance to the Third Reich.  Although several articles have been published that allude to the existence of the texts, they have been held in cautious reservation since then due to fear of retribution by Islamic extremists and rogue nations.


The Grand Mufti of Palestine and Hitler hid the early 20th Century Qur’anic archive because they knew that its exposure would work to undermine the tenets of Islam and lead to its eventual destruction.




From the “Prophet of Doom” by Craig Winn:


[“The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint prove that the words of the Torah, Psalms, and Prophets did not change during the thousand years preceding Islam—or in the fourteen hundred years since. And twenty-five thousand New Testament fragments and scrolls dating to more than five hundred years before the earliest surviving Qur’an testify that the Gospels remain basically unaltered.


Islam is a doctrine of intolerance.  Terror and the outrageous curtailment of human liberties lie at the heart of this doctrine.  Force and brutality are the tools of submission.  Islam tolerates no rival and will be imposed on any conflicting doctrine by brutal force.  The doctrine praises every pacifist. Those who promote peace with Islam simply facilitate its conquests.  Our leaders haven’t cracked the covers of the terrorist manifesto that is motivating killers today (and if they have and remain silent, they are then complicit).   Americans negotiate with Saudis, Egyptians, Iranians, and the so-called Palestinians without having read the Qur’an, Ta’rikh or Hadith.  America is likely to comfort the terrorists and attack those with the courage to thwart them.


From the Book of Jihad, on page 580 of Maktba Dar-us-Salam’s publication of Sahih Al-Bukhari: “Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s Cause with full force of weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its Pillars. By Jihad Islam is established, Allah is made superior and He becomes the only God who may be worshiped. By Jihad Islam is propagated and made superior. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and Muslims fall into an inferior position. Their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, and Muslim rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape this duty dies as a hypocrite.”

Memorize this paragraph. Repeat it out to all who will listen. Every word was derived from the Qur’an. Every word was lived by Muhammad. It accurately represents fundamental Islam, so much so, each of the 150 Hadiths that follow this definition of Jihad speak of fighting; none suggest a spiritual struggle. Among them, Muhammad says that the most important deed is Jihad, fighting in Allah’s Cause. (Bukhari:V4B52N44) And the Qur’an agrees, saying peaceful Muslims are hypocrites, destined for hell. They are “the worst of creatures,” “the most vile of animals.” (Qur’an surahs 3 and 33.)”


Religion was simply a tool, a veil, a distraction – a means to legitimize murder and mayhem.]



My own view is that:


Islam is openly declared to be the primal law in politics wherever it exists, and its proven predilection is “submission” of its subjects and expansion of its precepts into every land across the globe; hence, Islam must be seen as geographic in its requisite requirement for expansion and political in its obligatory inclusion within the fabric of all secular law.


Judeo-Christians embrace tolerance and peace for the sake of inclusion and diversity, and then say: “Let’s leave politics out of it” where Islam is concerned – but fail to see, in doing so, that the argument between the laws of Islam and the laws of God (and American Jurisprudence) is, thereby, already lost.  No small wonder that the devil has been called the great dissembler.


“For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

(Re 22:18,19).  God’s word is completed. There were additional words from God given to men after this last revelation.


“Religious tolerance also helped the Muslim empire expand.”  p461 My World History (Early Ages)

Islam spread by war. For example.  Christianity spread all over the Middle east and North Africa, Iraq, and India in a period of 600 years by evangelism.  Islam spread over the same area in 150 years by war.  No religion spreads that fast by peace.  The evidence demands the conclusion that tolerance was not how the Muslim empire expanded.

“Behold you are with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man, his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”  Genesis 16:11-12

“The Common Word” by Sam Solomon and E Al Maqdisi

Commentary: How Islam has deceived the main line Christian Denominations in America into compromised partnership. The ELCA is one of the signers of a document stating that Quran and the Bible have common origins and content. This is totally false. Jews and Christians from the time of the first writing of the Quran rejected it as being inspired by God.

Excellence Reference:
The following article “The Common Word among Us” is from:

On 12 September 2006, Pope Benedict XVI delivered a speech at the University of Regensburg which also contained some comments on Islam that elicited protests by Muslims from around the world, see the Wikipedia article Pope Benedict XVI Islam controversy. It is no surprise that Muslim leaders came to the conviction that public critique of Islam from such a high-ranking and influential person needed a public response. On October 12, 2006, 38 top Muslim scholars and clerics, published an Open Letter to the Pope (cf. this response). On October 11, 2007, one year after the release of the open letter to the Pope, a larger group of 138 Muslim scholars, clerics and intellectuals sent another open letter, entitled A Common Word Between Us and You, to Pope Benedict and the leaders of other Christian denominations.

This latter declaration has received responses from many people and institutions. The most highly publicised response was written by a group of four academics from the University of Yale, entitled Loving God and Neighbor Together. This response has been endorsed by over 300 Christian leaders from around the world. But it has also received a good measure of critique.

The Muslim letter, A Common Word Between Us and You, is a carefully crafted document, containing subtlety that is not easily detected, and some statements may mean something different than they appear to say at first glance. It is a large document which cannot be evaluated in only a few paragraphs. In the following, we present links to comments and evaluations of both the Muslim open letter as well as the Yale response. These links are mostly of a critical nature since we feel that a counterbalance and deeper reflection is needed to the often uncritical praise and support of these documents. The first entries in the two lists of responses are carefully written comprehensive replies, the latter entries are postings on blogs that pick out one or two issues that they are commenting upon. On the blog postings, sometimes the discussion that comes after the blog entry is valuable as well.

By Amil Imani  in American Thinker June 17, 2012


Islam is a brutal, tribal warrior cult that glorifies jihad and martyrdom.  The Quran is replete with acts of murder, terrorism, and genocide.

Let us look at some explicit provisions of the Quran:

* Islam is misogynist.  Men are superior to women.  Women are to obey men and are to be beaten when they disobey or misbehave.

* Islam is racist.  The Quran stipulates that the Arabs are superior to all others, and it clearly condones slavery.  It explicitly stipulates discriminatory laws for slaves.

* Islam denounces other belief systems and marginally recognizes the validity of only two religions: Judaism and Christianity.

* Islam is violent.  It not only condones jihad; it recommends it and promises great reward for the jihadist.

* Islam is already splintered in a number of major sects and innumerable numbers of secondary sects that harbor huge disagreement with and animosity toward one another as well as toward all infidels.

Nearly a billion and a half of the human species — a species supposedly endowed with the greatest of intelligence — swallows Islam whole and even dispenses it to others by any and all means possible.  It is one of those great mysteries of life that defies any and all logic.

Many animals come with already in-place programs that automatically run much of their lives.  Birds’ migration, mating courtship, and thousands of other complex behaviors are instances of this type of specific programming.  A catchword for this type of behavior is “instinct.”  As a general rule, the higher the organism, the less is its rigid pre-programs and the greater its latitude to exercise choices.

As humans, our two legs move us along, but it is our minds that tell us which path to take in life and what to do.  As the mind commands, so goes the person.  Yet for humans, the mind does not arrive in this world with a set program of instructions.  Contrary to many beliefs, we are born neither as demons nor as angels.  Within each one of us is the potential for a demon or an angel.  Many evolve into a mix of the two, a few fortunate mature into truly angelic people, and some become personifications of evil.  It is the mind’s programming that plays the critical role in making us what we are.

Every one of us arrives in this world as a helpless infant at the mercy of others — not only to be fed, cleaned and protected, but also to be informed about the bewildering life we face.  Others can teach the new arrivals only what they know and believe.  And much of what adults know and believe is a hodgepodge, handed down to them by the adults that raised them.

Islam, from its inception, discovered the crucial secret of getting to the young mind early by adhering to the dictum: instruction in early childhood is akin to carving in the rock.  In the same vein goes the Jesuit saying, “Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man,” derived from the philosophy and theology of Saint Augustine.  The immense importance of getting early to the young mind is also emphasized by non-religious doctrines as diverse as the Freudian psychoanalytic theory and Watsonian Behaviorist psychology.

It is thus that millions of infants annually end up in the care of people who themselves are imbued with a pathological Islamist belief system rooted in the mores and practices of the primitives of the Arabian Peninsula from 1,300 years ago.

From very early on, the young child is indoctrinated in the belief that there is an omniscient, ever-vigilant Allah who observes everything a person does and even everything he contemplates.  Nothing whatsoever escapes this omnipresent, all-knowing being.  Allah keeps tabs, and he bestows incredibly desirous rewards if one behaves as told, while dispensing unimaginably tortuous punishment if one strays.

The very young human faces, beginning with the minute he can make some sense of the world, a bewildering array of mysteries, challenges, and enticements.  There are questions at every step — fears and hopes entangled with the need to survive and possibly thrive.

Who am I?  What is this world all about?  What’s the purpose?  What am I supposed to do and how?  Where am I headed?  People die.  Where do they go?  And on and on and on.  The information booths available to a man in the fairground of life provide him with answers that may help relieve his innate existentialistic anxiety.  And it is here that religion plays its critical role and holds great appeal.  Religion provides a surefire answer to those who are willing to take it on faith.

And Islam is a powerful magnet for the masses who are unable to deal with the uncertainties of life and death on their own.  It is from this population, many already thoroughly indoctrinated from birth, that the majority of die-hard jihadists emerge.

It is the bargain the jihadist makes.  He surrenders totally to the religion of surrender in exchange for blanket security.  Islam gives him all the answers he really seeks for dealing with this world and promises him a most lush and eternal paradise of Allah once he leaves it.  And leaving this world in perfect submission as the foot soldier of the paradise’s creator gives the faithful unimaginably glorious sensual eternal reward in his next life.  It’s a bargain that some buy in whole, while some buy it in part, and some refuse and seek other means of dealing with their questions and the unrelenting existentialistic anxiety.

It is foolish to underestimate the dangers of Islamic mental manipulation.  All Muslims share an Islamic cognitive repertoire, with considerable variations.  As is the case with any population distribution, a great majority forms the middle while minorities populate the extremes.  Islamic apologists and many Muslims point to the middle as true Islam, thereby disassociating themselves from the two extremes and may even denounce them as not being Muslims.

At one extreme are the Nominal Muslims.  These Muslims adhere loosely to the Islamic precepts and practices, ordinarily pose little threat to non-Muslims, and may even reject some aspects of the religion.

At the other extreme are the die-hard fanatical jihadists, who present severe threats not only to non-Muslims, but also to the so-called Moderate Muslims as well as the Nominal Muslims.

To this extremist group, nothing is out of bounds in furthering the cause.  Dissimulation, deception, and all manner of violence are their Quran-sanctioned tools.  As part of their scheme, this malevolent group has adopted highly effective strategies for subjugating the West, its people, and its culture.  In keeping with their supremacist racist cult, their god, Allah, is proclaimed as the greatest god — Allah-o-Akbar.  Yet, in English, one hears only the deceptive translation — God is great, and not the actual Arabic:  Allah is the greatest.

History documents the pivotal role of small groups, even individuals, in precipitating monumentally important events.  It is the energized militant minority that often sparks movements and directs the course of human events.  And it is the minority of Muslims, militant and highly motivated soldiers of Allah, who are on the march to defeat the non-believing by any and all means and establish “Caliphatism,” the Islamic Kingdom.


Council on American-Islamic Relations



We have noted many times that the Department of Justice named the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a self-described civil rights group, as an unindicted co-conspirator in its prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation and others for providing support to the terrorist group Hamas. But we missed the fact (I did, anyway) that the federal courts have now affirmed DOJ’s designation of CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator.
Initially, CAIR protested its inclusion on the government’s unindicted co-conspirator list. It moved before Federal Judge Jorge Solis, who tried the Holy Land Foundation case, to have its name, and those of the other unindicted parties, expunged from the government’s list. It also asked the court to find that its Fifth Amendment rights had been violated by the government’s public filing of the list.
Judge Solis issued an order in response to CAIR’s motion (and that of two other parties) on July 1, 2009. That order was not made public until it was affirmed by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals last month. Now, in response to the 5th Circuit’s order, Judge Solis has unsealed his opinion; you can read it here.
Judge Solis found that the government should have filed the list of unindicted co-conspirators under seal, even though testimony in the trial itself that identified CAIR and the other parties was publicly available. However, Judge Solis denied CAIR’s motion to be expunged from the list on the ground that that the government had presented sufficient evidence at trial to justify CAIR’s designation as an undicted co-conspirator.

CAIR holds itself out as America’s foremost Islamic civil rights organization. Under Sharia, however, the Western concept of civil rights does not exist. The analogy to Communist front organizations of an earlier era is striking. While pretending to advocate for freedom and to oppose discrimination, CAIR’s real purpose is to subvert the very society whose liberalism it cynically seeks to exploit.
