Peace or submission

I just received this email from a good friend over at Islam in Action regarding Islam.

Bosun,

As I surf the net I see many Christians standing up for the ideology of Islam. Most of them have not done any research on Islam. They have been told by Muslims, that Islam is a religion of peace.

One has to ponder this, if it were true, why are Christians and Jews being persecuted across the Islamic world? It appears to me that we need to examine radicalized Islam to see the apparent dangers in countries dominated by or becoming dominated.

There appears an eventual metamorphosis toward destroying other religions. Examine the current happenings in the UK, here and here

Monotheist and Polytheist religions need to examine their fate and that of their families future generations. Atheists and others may not escape the wrath.

In just a two day period let us look at what has happened to Christians stuck under Islamic rule.
Somalia 7/28/08 A Christian convert was shot to death with a AK-47 by two Muslim men. The reason....all because he would not face Mecca when praying. When his wife heard the news of her husbands murder she went into premature labour and gave birth to a stillborn baby. The Somali constitution discourages the promotion and propagation of any religion other than Islam.......

Jakarta Indonesia 7/28/08 A Protestant school in Jakarta was stormed by a mob of Muslims injuring 265 students. Many with head injuries and others burnt by Molotov cocktails.....

Iran 7/29/08 16 Christian converts were arrested and some beaten. The crime was converting to Christianity......

Funny how Muslims always tell us that Islam is a religion of tolerance, but the actions of some Muslims always show the opposite. A bill has gone to Iranian Parliament there calling for the death penalty of anyone who leaves Islam. (Similar to Saudi Arabia regarding Apostasy). Such is freedom.

True, individually these are isolated incidents, but, if one overlays all the violent incidents involving religions living under Islamic rule (or raising Islamic rule) one must ponder: Is Islam a religion of peace? A religion of dominance? A religion of submission? A religion of tolerance? A religion that will allow other monotheistic, polytheistic, atheists, and agnostics to co-exist peacefully under its rule?

Not all people are blind to the danger of Islam, however are there enough of us to save Western ideals?

Those of us that see the truth of Islam understand that these aren't the radical minority but a majority. Those who believe in tolerance are actually the minority in Islam, but they do exist. However if action were taken against the Muslims with oppressive beliefs they will hide amongst the tolerant Muslims and practice Taqiyya. That makes things difficult in combating them.

Also due to our own culture and ideals working against us those who would fight the spread of Islam and Sharia Law are branded xenophobes, bigots, etc. That is a difficult thing when our own laws work against us, laws we actually believe in and would/are fighting to preserve. The Whahibbi and Shia brands of Islam know this and work on many levels to undermine our ability to fight them, not just terrorism. Terrorism is easy to fight and rally support against. Immigration, Western guilt/self-hate, and multiculturalism are not.

Thanks for the comments, Reason.

Was Islam spread by the sword?


Quote:
Some enemies of the religion claim that Islam was spread by the sword. What is your response to that?


Praise be to Allaah.

Islam was spread by proof and evidence, in the case of those who listened to the message and responded to it. And it was spread by strength and the sword in the case of those who stubbornly resisted, until they had no choice and had to submit to the new reality.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
