Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Inside the Muslim mind

There are slogans which call for death to blasphemers, death to America. The strong longing to detest, bringing death and destruction upon oneself or others is deeply embedded in these slogans; the desire to kill the “culprit” not through the application of law but mob justice

What we find today is that it is only Islam and its followers which are privileged to be the focus of the entire world. Islam, though a minority religion of the world is struggling hard to excel all other religions being “youngest” of all the other “divine” religions.

Almost all the Muslims—by and large— maintain similar views on life and the material world yet the Muslims of Pakistan are notorious for their “love for Islam”, while the rightful claimant still remains Saudi Arabia.

The “family” of the Prophet and people from Mecca and Medina has always expressed their superiority over all other Muslims. Since Islam was primarily a religion of the Arab desert, at second place in “prestige” come the other Arab Muslims. The non-Arab Muslims fall at the third place. However, the philosophy of Islam underscores universality which when translated into ground realities assumes the form of “forced occupation” or imperialism. The first lesson of Islam states: “No God but Allah”; a complete negation of all the other religions, beliefs and cultures. Hence, Muslims do not consider other religions as legitimate religions but heresy and desire their elimination. ‘True’ Muslims do not understand that calling adherents of other religions as heretics is a great insult to religion itself. Everybody following any religion considers his or her to be the true, while it is only Islam which deems itself not only the “true religion” it also aspires for the total annihilation of all other religions. This diversion distinguishes Islam from all other spiritual belief systems while it assumes the form of a political religion which endeavours to establish its authority and hegemony all over the world.

When a belief system carries political considerations, it also begins to feel pride in being “true”. This leads to delusions causing aggressive tendencies. To advance aggression one needs material resources, whereas Muslims are deficient in education, scientific and technological advancement as well as political stature. This deficit causes them to become intolerant since all the material, economic and political power is in possession of the West. Hence, the Saudi rulers from the royal family employ all their economic resources and petrodollars to invade the world in another way. The strategy begins with spreading the extremist Wahabi doctrine in Muslim states to accomplish“spiritual occupation”; a goal achieved quite successfully. A large number of mosques and religious schools have been set up propagating Wahabi philosophy presented as “true Islam”. Trousers above the ankles and Arab-style burqas are now very popular in our country while most of the jehadi and extremist organizations belong to the Saudi brand of Islam which also enjoys the backing of our security establishment. The Saudis have also made efforts to pitch all Muslims of the world against the West and followers of all other religions. Hence, it is Islam vs. the rest of the world. Saudi Arabia is actively involved through the advancement of particular beliefs, culture and political objectives. In short, Saudi imperialism is spreading in the name of Islam.

The basic ideology of Islam and the Muslim mindset clearly establishes that there is no pluralism in Islam. And this is the reason why mainstream Muslims cannot live alongside people from other religions and cultures. They consider it against their belief system. They strongly feel that all the non-Muslims are heretics and are involved in hatching conspiracies against them. Such material is written in the Quran and in our text books which we teach our children. Therefore, most Muslims do not consider diversity as indicative of the beauty of nature and humanity and that is the primary reason why minorities live a miserable life in the Muslim countries [often regarded as second class citizens]. Efforts are even made in the Muslim countries to eliminate minorities. Harshest of laws and attitudes exist in Saudi Arabia. It is therefore not possible that the civilized world and the Islamified Muslim world can integrate or even co-exist.

The Muslims foster a strong desire that the whole world should treat them in a preferential way as well as respect Islam while they keep calling every non-Muslim a heretic. They should have the allowance to live their lives according to their beliefs and values while they would not become part of any other religion or culture. They would remain a separate entity, demand separate rules for themselves overlooking the fact that the Western society is no more religious or “divine” in character rather it is driven by humane considerations and is founded on values which mankind has found useful after gaining experience of thousands of years based on rationality and science. On the other hand, the Muslims consider male oriented tribal Arab traditions of the desert as ideal not only for themselves but for the entire world.

A majority of the Muslims do not consider man-made disciplines of any real value. The rights and civil liberties which most Muslims demand in non-Muslim countries do not exist even in their own countries. These do not exist either in Islam, which like most religions happens to envisage an authoritarian, centrist and theocratic state. Here there is no concept of individual freedom. If a single demand of the Muslims is conceded to by a Western country, they would put forth another; till such time that the whole society would divide on the basis of Muslim and non-Muslim. The story would not end here; the next demand would be the establishment of an Islamic state.

Today even if we look at our own society, we find violence and authoritarianism as part of our national psyche. As if the Caliphs still rule the world and we are a super power. This attitude can be gauged by going through the slogans written on banners seen all across the country:

Gustakh-e-Rasul ki saza, Sar tan say juda” or “hand us over the blasphemer”.

The expression “Gustakh” itself is an expression of power. It translates into “How dare you”. Then there are slogans which call for death to blasphemers, death to America, Islam zindabad and kufr murdabad. The strong longing to detest, bringing death and destruction upon oneself or others is deeply embedded in these slogans; the desire to kill the “culprit” not through the application of law but mob justice.

How many heads would roll as the Muslim world is fast losing rationality, humanity and a civilized existence.

Jihad is not peaceful struggle

Originally posted on Most Intolerant Religion:

Now a days various Social Medias are loaded with claims like, “Jihad is a peaceful Ideological Struggle, and it has nothing to do with Physical violence at all,” by devout Muslims. They quote their religious scholars to prove their claim, which reads as follows:-

Those who are introduced to the Quran only through the media, generally have the impression that the Quran is a book of Jihad, and Jihad to them is an attempt to achieve one’s goal by means of violence. But this idea is based on misunderstanding. Anyone who reads the Quran for himself will easily appreciate that its message has nothing to do with violence. The Quran is, from beginning to end, a book which promulgates peace and in no way countenance violence. It is true that Jihad is one of the teaching of Quran. But Jihad, taken in correct sense, is the name of peaceful struggle rather than that…

The Quran Says that People of Other Religions are to be Violently Punished in This World

The Quran Says that People of Other Religions are to be Violently Punished in This World

Allah himself fights against the unbelievers (9:30), so why should Muslims not fight in his cause rather than in the cause of evil (4:76)? About 19% of the Quran is devoted to the violent conquest and subjugation of non-Muslims:
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides, whom ye may not know (8:60)
Strive hard (Jihad) against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge indeed. (66:9, See also 9:73)

Muslims are to expect a reward in this life as well as the next (4:134), so it makes sense that unbelievers should be punished in this life as well:

…He whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide. For them is a penalty in the life of this world, but harder, truly, is the penalty of the Hereafter… (13:33:34)
All beings on heaven and earth will be forced to bow down to Allah, either willingly or by force:
And unto Allah falleth prostrate whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly (13:15)
Those who resist Islam will be humiliated:
Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be among those most humiliated. (58:20 – The context for this verse is the eviction of the Jewish tribes of Medina and the confiscation of their wealth, land, and children by Muhammad).
Non-Muslims are to be fought until religion is only for Allah:
And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah… (8:39 – “Persecution” in this context means resistance to Islam – defined in the prior verse as an unwillingness to believe (see verse 38). This passage was “revealed” following a battle that Muhammad deliberately provoked. Verse 2:193 essentially says the same thing and was also “revealed” at a time when the Muslims were not under physical attack).
Those with “diseased hearts” – which include Christians and Jews according to 5:52 – are to be “seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter” (33:60-62) along with “hypocrites” (Muslims who are judged not to be true believers by their associations with unbelievers or their unwillingness to engage in Jihad).

Non-Muslims are to be encroached on and pressured by the Muslims:

See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? (13:41 – See also 21:44)
And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things. (33:27, See also Bukhari 53:392)

Allah will grant Muslims authority and power over all other people:

Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion… (24:55)
(Muhammad’s companions continued to self-fulfill this prophecy with an aggressive and senseless military expansion that left a trail of bodies from Spain to India).

Allah provides instructions to Muslims for dealing with unbelievers who are unwilling to accept Islamic rule:

Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.” This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment. (8:12-13)
Defeating non-Muslims should be easy for true believers because they are superior in intelligence and understanding:
O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred (steadfast) they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence (8:65)

Other verses of violence may be found here:

Remember that the Quran says that not all men are equal in Islam. This also applies to Muslims themselves with regard to their aggressiveness toward unbelievers. Those who kill or are killed on behalf of Islam are more pleasing to Allah:
Not equal are those of the believers who sit at home… and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and lives” (4:95)

    The Historical Reality of the Muslim Conquests

    Because it is now almost axiomatic for American school textbooks to whitewash all things Islamic (seehere for example), it may be instructive to examine one of those aspects that are regularly distorted: the Muslim conquests.

    Iran Is a Rogue Nation

    • Yin Fēi why Iran is called rogue nation?because these injustice international organization say Iran is rogue nation because it is planning to make nuclear weapon.So why not India,Pakistan and Israel.They also have nuclear weapon

    • TriEmm Man ‎Yin Fēi, Iran has a history of aggression against Muslims all over the world and it has very closed ties with the Jews. In 1987, Iran planned to attack on Kabbah and did it through it’s pilgrims. Iran supported Northern Alliance in Afghanistan against Talibans since 1998. Iran supports Hezbullah in Lebanon. Iran also supports many Shia militant groups who are killing Muslims. Apart from it, read about the character of Persian peopleright after the conquering Persia by Umar Ben El Khattab (RZ), you will find that Iran (previously Persia) never been like an Islamic Country and been involved in many activities which clearly showed that Iran is a real major threat for Muslims before other external enemies.

As far as the Fitna is concern so I don’t think so, SHIAISM itself a Fitna since its inception. I have no soft corner for these SHIA nutz (descendants of Abdullah Ben Sabah a Jew). Btw as per unanimous Islamic believes Shias are Non Muslims and there is no question for division. These Shias are Zionist Agents. And Mark my worlds Jews will protect Iran in any case…

      Yin Fēi ‎TriEmm Man again that wasn’t an attack that was a demonstration in the city of Mekkah.A group of Iranian done it and we cannot blame the whole Iran for that.In 1979 a Sunni group had also attacked and hostages Al-Masjid al-Haram that means whole Sunnis are bad for some of those idiots?Coming to the next point as I said not all Shia are Kafir.Some Shia do bring sovereignty of Ali to Allah but not all Shia.So,whole of Shiaism is a foolishness as their kaalima is perfect.Regarding to Jews protecting Iran.It not the whole of Iran.Jews will surely protect Isfahan as 70thousand of the Jews will come from their but not of whole Iran.Iran is currently their biggest enemy as they deny to agree with their oppression towards Palestine.

For your views that not all Shias are Non Muslims … I strongly disagree, all Shias follow the same believe of cursing Companions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), cursing wives of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), all shias prays to the shrine of LULU Feroz (May Allah curse on him) who attacked on Umar Ben El Khattab, Shias made changes in Quran, they deny the Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), all shias believe that right after the sad demise of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) all companions turn to be Kafir except Ahal-e-Bait, and many more evil activities that are sufficient to call them Non Muslims.

    Outraged At Totally Wrong Headed Response to Israel standing up to the stupidity of Obama

    Good For Israel! This article is totally bias toward the non-exist palestinian people (small p). These people are displaced Jodians, Syrians, Lebanese and Egyptians that disowned them and cast them aside. Israel is the ONLY stable democratic AND free country in the middle east. We, as a (former) beacon of freedom and democracy should be not only backing the only legal country in the former Palestine Mandate, but pushing with as much effort as we put into WWII to guarantee they are NOT pressured into giving up a single acre of land and that ALL OF Jerusalem is part of Israel. There are NO illegal settlements. Israel has just as much right to these lands without a nation as anyone. If it wasn’t for the Mohammad approved and sanctioned “kill all Jews and Christians who will not submit to subjegation” in the Qu’ran and Hadith and Sunnah of Islam, Israel would be the model ALL middle east nations should emulate as a fair and just government and nation.

    IN RESPONSE TO THIS:

    Israel Bitch-Slaps Obama– Again– and Gets a $3,000,000,000 Handout from America as “Punishment”
    20th May 2011 · 0 Comments

    38
    ShareOnce again, the Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu has bitch-slapped the Obama administration upside the head with impeccably humiliating timing, and once again America will respond by gifting billions of dollars in aid to Israel.

    This time, it was more or less over a speech.

    There was much fault to find in President Obama’s address on the Middle East yesterday. It was positively oozing with hypocrisy on democracy and America’s role in regional tyranny. But he struck a remarkably balanced tone on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, even going so far as to become the first sitting President to endorse a two-state solution based on Israel’s 1967 borders.

    It was precisely this even-handedness, even if it was only in a speech (and anyone on the “Arab Street” can tell you that they’ve heard it all before), that caused Netanyahu to blow his yarmulke. A few highlights:

    “For decades, the conflict between Israelis and Arabs has cast a shadow over the region. For Israelis, it has meant living with the fear that their children could get blown up on a bus or by rockets fired at their homes, as well as the pain of knowing that other children in the region are taught to hate them. For Palestinians, it has meant suffering the humiliation of occupation, and never living in a nation of their own.”

    “Because of our friendship [with Israel], it is important that we tell the truth: the status quo is unsustainable, and Israel too must act boldly to advance a lasting peace.”

    “The dream of a Jewish and democratic state cannot be fulfilled with permanent occupation.”

    “A lasting peace will involve two states for two peoples. Israel as a Jewish state and the homeland for the Jewish people, and the state of Palestine as the homeland for the Palestinian people; each state enjoying self-determination, mutual recognition, and peace… The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine. The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.”

    Obama also spoke of the need for a “full and phased withdrawal of Israeli military forces” from occupied Palestinian territories and decried the continued (and illegal) construction of Israeli settlements on Palestinian land.

    That last one got Netanyahu madder than dispossessed Palestinian refugee, and he immediately turned to bite the hand that feeds him to the tune of $3,000,000,000 US taxpayer dollars a year. With impeccably dickish timing– right after Obama’s speech and right before he boarded a plane to Washington to meet with the American President in the White House– Netanyahu flipped Obama a huge middle finger in the form of an announcement that his government was approving the construction of an additional 1,500 illegal settler homes in occupied East Jerusalem.

    According to Agence France-Presse, the Israeli interior ministry has given its final approval for the building of 900 settler homes in Har Homa and another 620 in Pisgat Zeev. “I hope that the message that goes through the approval of 1,500 units of building in Jerusalem sends a clear message to the American administration,” Israeli lawmaker Arieh Eldad huffed with cocksure audacity. Indeed, “Netanyahu’s decision to discuss Har Homa and Pisgat Zeev today is a clear message to the Americans about Israel’s real policy which refuses to even discuss (sharing) Jerusalem,” Hagit Ofran of Peace Now’s Settlement Watch unit told AFP.

    Sadly, this isn’t the first time that the Netanyahu regime has told Israel’s most indispensable benefactor to go fuck themselves in so many words. Last year, Bibi chose the moment when Vice President Joe Biden was visiting Israel, pledging Obama’s “absolute, total, unvarnished commitment to Israel’s security,” to announce that his government was authorizing the construction of 1,600 new illegal settlement homes on occupied Palestinian land. And how did the country that Israel cannot survive without punish its number one welfare case? By Biden showing up an hour and a half late for dinner with Bibi. And by sending $2,750,000,000 worth of some of the most advanced fighter jets America has ever built to Israel. For free.

    So, what about this latest Israeli slap to America’s face? How will we put those pesky, disobedient Zionists in their place? By handing out billions more in free money, of course. The Obama administration has pledged $30,000,000,000 in guaranteed aid to Israel, and nothing so small as being utterly humiliated by a nation whose actions have been roundly condemned literally hundreds of times by the United Nations is going to threaten that unending flow of cash.

    Somebody needs to put Israel in its place. But the only country that has a chance of doing that is too busy kissing stinking Zionist ass. It is utterly incomprehensible how successive governments of what is arguably the most powerful nation that has ever existed have been reduced to spinelessly slavish cash machines for a quasi-pariah strip of desert smaller than New Jersey. If any other country treated America as flippantly as Israel so often does, it would find itself on our shit list, at the very least, or at most, the target of isolation, sanctions or even talk of regime change.

    But Israel isn’t “any other country.” It, like the United States, is self-absorbed with heady notions of divinely sanctioned exceptionalism, and armed with the arrogance and the heavy weaponry to impose that dangerously delusional vision upon the hapless nations around it, the US and Israel will continue to stand virtually alone in a world that increasingly views them both as rogue states.

    Yes Arab nations treated Palestinian’s with loathing for many decades. Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia could have all offered them homeland & aide but never did until they realized they could be exploited against Israel internally. Duped …to send they’re children to death as suicide bomber thay idolize. When too old & fragile to care for self those icons of so called dead hero’s won’t be there for help they need. Ironically the nomadic Pal.s never had nor desired a homeland untl Israel drained swamp lands & pastures they ruined overgrazing then moving on to overgraze again elsewhere. Nothing, no one prevented them from building a nation before Israel returned to her God given land. A mere 60 some yrs. ago is but a speck of time. Now that Israel created thriving land they want to steal but they never attempted to create for themselves!
