What does it take to make Islam-bashers mend their ways? Why don't these folks come to their senses and see Islam as a religion of peace and praise the God of Abraham for continuing his beneficence on humanity by sending Muhammad to guide and humanize us? 

Why is it that some people keep criticizing a religion that has nearly 1.5 billion followers throughout the world? Now, if this faith was indeed what its detractors claim it is, wouldn't these masses of people see through it and dump it?

Didn't our very own president go around the Muslim heartland and sing the praises of Islam at every stop? Didn't he bow with great deference to the King of Islam in Saudi Arabia? Didn't he proudly proclaim Islam as the faith of his near and dear kindred? Didn't he tell us time and again that Islam is indeed the religion of peace? Didn't he with his captivating oratory skills cite passages from the Quran to show how reverent he is toward this religion? Didn't he appoint a raft of "devoted" Muslims to sensitive and high posts in government?

Even ignoring the president's behavior and pronouncements, we have numberless others in the know such as politicians, media experts, academics, and what-nots who keep preaching to us that Islam is indeed a sanctified religion wrongly vilified by a bunch of hatemongers. After all, its very name means peace. How could anyone possibly have anything but praise for a religion called peace? What is more precious than peace?

Agitated, the champions of the religion of peace moan: what does it take to convince the detractors of Islam to stop their unceasing effort to present a distorted image of this wonderful, world-encircling religion?

Well, there are just a few problems that make swallowing the president's remarks and actions, as well as all the other Islamic apologists and know-it-alls, difficult.

* Claiming that "Islam" means "peace" is fraudulent to begin with. Islam is an Arabic word. And the word for peace in Arabic is "solh," not "Islam." Islam is derived from the root word "taslim," which means "submission" or "surrender." Hence, Islam's true name -- surrender -- is in fact most descriptive of what it is: total, unconditional submission and surrender of the individual and the community to the will and dictates of Allah as revealed by his "rasool" (messenger), Muhammad.

* Further proof of the fraudulent nature of billing Islam as a religion of peace is the irrefutable fact that Muhammad himself led his followers during his lifetime in 78 battles, only one of which was defensive in nature.

* Perusing the religion of peace's holy book, the Quran, taken by Muslims as the literal revelation of Allah, reveals more of a manual of intolerance and war than a divinely-revealed prescription from a benevolent God for a life of brotherhood and peace.

Quran 2:216 "Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you knew not."

Quran 8:65 "O Prophet exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast, they will overcome two hundred and if there be of you a hundred, they shall overcome a thousand, because the disbelievers are a folk without intelligence."

* Deeds speak louder than words. From its very inception, Islam was a movement of violence -- violence both within its ranks and against non-Muslims has been the unceasing practice. The minute Muhammad died, jockeying for power among his disciples led to numberless murders and battles. The faith of peace never saw peace even within its own ranks and never allowed the rest of the world any peace at all by lashing out to other lands near and far.

* A quick scan of the daily news shows the adherents of the religion of peace engaged in unspeakable acts of mayhem and murder in much of the world. There is hardly any need to allude to them here. But the Islamists have an answer for that too. Islam is not responsible, they say. It is only a bunch of opportunists who commit these acts for their own political and economic objectives. We are to believe that those daily suicide bombers who explode their vests in the midst of marketplaces, funeral processions, and even mosques are doing so to further their own personal agenda.

* All this aside, a recent report from the FBI estimates that of the two thousand mosques in the United States, 10% preach Jihad. Welcome to the religion of peace as it invades the land of the free in order to make it the land of submission. This is not some Islam-hating crackpot group reporting. It is the FBI, an agency known for its bending backward to be politically correct in tune with the rest of the administration.

* The Muslim population is burgeoning in America through high birth rates as well as extensively successful conversion in prisons. Even by the rules of probability, a fraction of these Muslims may be deeply influenced by the Jihad preachers and take upon themselves Islamist missions of various severity and destruction. How many Jihadists did it take to pulverize the World Trade Center? It took oneMaj. Nidal Hasan to take the lives of thirteen and injure twenty-nine others in an outburst of Islamic peace-making.

* Islamist apologists come in all shades. There are the true faithful who are out in front about it. They believe that Islam and its ways are the answer. It doesn't matter whether it is seen as good or bad by others. Then there are the hired mouthpieces, like lawyers who defend a murderer to the limit of their ability simply because they are paid to do so. We may not like either of the above two types, but this is their chosen profession, which is understandable.

* What really is hard to deal with are those who either through ignorance or a misplaced sense of fairness and multiculturalism keep saying that Islam itself is not bad, the Quran contains no more violence than does the Bible, and that the moderate Muslims, who are the vast majority, are good people and need to do something about the criminal minority. These folks go even a step further and brand those of us who sound the alarm against Islam in general as unjustified hatemongers.

But the notion of moderate Muslims is an illusion created by the wishful thinking of a good-hearted yet deluded people. The so-called minority jihadist-types are indeed the real Muslims. These jihadists hate the so-called moderate Muslims as much as they hate the kefirs -- the infidels. And it is always the small group, the militant minority, that eventually topples the complacent majority. History is replete with support for this contention.

In my view, truth and the naked truth should be the only standard. No sugar-coating, no political correctness, no hired-guns to cover up for the Islamic menace that has afflicted humanity for so long and keeps marching across the globe, doing more harm.

So who is to repent? It is the human calling for every Muslim to cast off the chain of Islam and take his or her rightful place along the ranks of the truly peaceful and free people of the world.

I want to thank you so much for your website. A voice of truth in the

I am new to your site and will be following it in the future.

Bless you,

Dear Sir,

I just read your article, Islam Bashers Repent, and found it very insightful. I will read more of your articles in the days to come.

For the Kingdom,

Doran, Pastor
Mr. Imani,

Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your site and the information there.
Thank you for standing up for Rifqa Bary.

I shall pray to Adonai, Jehovah God, for your safety and success as you expose the evils of Islam.

'We wrestle not against flesh and blood by against principalities and powers in high places.' Ephesians 6:12

Mr. Imani,

The 800 pound tragedy in the room is that the Terrorists are succeeding.

When the filmmakers of the movie '2012' removed a scene wherein a mosque was destroyed, they removed it for fear of reprisal by Islamic terrorists.

When the FBI publicly premeditated that the Fort Hood Shootings were 'not related to terrorism', they did so in fear of reprisal by Islamic politicos at CAIR.

The irony is that Terror by Islamic Jihad is puny when compared to Terror by Political Correctness.

Terrorism by Islamic Jihad debilitates a minority of Americans, but a majority of Americans want to stand up to it.

Terrorism by Political Correctness debilitates a majority of Americans, but only a minority of Americans are willing to stand up to it.

Americans aren't afraid to fight Terrorists carrying out Jihad, but they are afraid of being labeled or rebuked by family and friends who have been enculturated by NPR, NYT, CNN, DNC, NEA, etc.

The crisis before us is that the Domestic Terrorism of Political Correctness is proving itself a force multiplier for the International Terrorism of Islamic Jihad.

The crisis before us is that the Domestic Terrorism of Political Correctness is aiding and abetting the Terrorism of Islamic Jihad in its advancement from an international theater to a domestic theater.

When I consider the sacrifice of families separated by deployments to Afghanistan, when I consider the sacrafice of those who give their lives and those who come home with life long impairment, dismemberment or disfigurement, I am ashamed to admit that I dread the antipathy of friends, associates and family that receive your column through my email or my Facebook account.

What you have documented needs to be sent, taught and hammered home. I would say that it should be 'shouted', but shouting is only allowed for liberal activists and the free lunch crowd. When conservatives shout they are racists, bigots, mobs and tea beggars.

Truth is No Respector of Men
Dear Amil,

I read your article with keen interest and agree with everything you wrote in it.Thanks for exposing Islam, and trying to save Muslims, and mankind, from its evil designs.


Dear Mr. Imani,

Great article. We are a small group of political activists located in the Midwest of the US. A couple of months ago we started up two blog sites and an associated website. We just discovered your website a few days ago.

Although we are all members of the Democratic Party, we part company with our fellow liberals when it comes to the subject of multi-culturalism, especially as it applies to Islam. The Iron Hand of political correctness is stronger in the Democratic Party among the idiological liberals who make up most of its activists than it is in the US in general. We would be expelled from the party if we openly expressed our views. We all have many years of experience in politics and are very knowledgeable and realistic about the nuts and bolts of politics as well as life in general.

We are very upset and disgusted at how politicians, the media, feminist organizations, and religious leaders of all faiths refuse to say anything critical of Islam. Feminist organizations in America, in general are almost completely silent about the horrible way women are treated in Islamic societies, even nominally secular ones like Egypt. As for those that follow Sharia law like Iran and Saudi Arabia women are treated worse than farm animals are in the US.

We have seen in blogs where ordinary citizens point out that Islam, unlike Christianity, never experienced a reformation in which religious authority was separated from political power. This is known as the Protestant Reformation. This is not a secret or a very sophisticated piece of information that is difficult to know about and understand. Nevertheless we have never seen any mention of this in the mainstream media. Certainly educated media and political professionals know about this. The absence of discussion can only be explained by a desire to avoid controversy and the power of political correctness. We are sure you are familiar with the Christian Reformation which makes Western religions and societies completely different from Islam and societies which it controls. We would just like to point out the reality that even the most superficial research by any layman can discover.

Although it started because of resentment about the corruption of the Church in Rome, the Protestant Reformation spread for political and economic reasons. Before this there was only one Christian Church which had both religious and political authority, controled by the Pope, just like the Mullahs in Iran are both religious and political leaders. Wherever it was successful, the Reformation took political power from the Catholic Church and put it exclusively in the hands of secular rulers. Political and opinion leaders keep insisting that Islam is no different from any other religion. Islam today combines religious and secular law and governance in one institution which makes it unique and incompatible with our Western societies which now insist on the separation of church and state and the supremacy of secular law over religious law in all matters. That this historic reality is never discussed in public and non-Muslims ignore it while defending Islam is dishonest and dangerous.

When Martin Luther ignited a revolt against Rome, one result was the Thirty Years War, which was a series of overlapping wars in Northern Europe that lasted thirty years and devastated Germany. Later it caused the English Civil War. The American founding fathers were very aware of both these bloody conflicts and others caused by religion being involved with government. That is why they codified in our Constiution that religion and state must be kept separate. In Europe, this principle was slowly codified over a period of more than a hundred years after our Constiution. Unfortunately both Americans and Europeans take this achievement and its beneficial results for granted

As an Iranian you are focused on overthrowing the Islamist regime in Iran. We are concerned about militant Islam in general. However, right now the Islamic Republic in Iran is the most dangerous country in the Middle East. The other very dangerous country is Pakistan, because we think there is a real danger the local Taliban will succeed in taken control of that country. Then there will be a second Islamic Republic and it will have a nuclear arsenal.

Sincerely, Leslie Watkins
'It is the human calling for every Muslim to cast off the chain of Islam and take his or her rightful place along the ranks of the truly peaceful and free people of the world.'

That's nice. A lot of us truly peaceful people have made the same calling.
Almost all of them are not listening.
What do you think will make them listen AND SEE?

Unfortunately, you and I know that the only thing that will change anything is the sword.

I write this with great sadness in my heart. There will be a battle between the house of Islam and the house of war. When? Who will prevail?
That's a lot of peace and submission to deal with. There are a few things, however, about Islam which works in our favor:

1. Their religion mostly insures they never attain much in the way of economic growth and are mired, still, in the 6th, or 7th or 8th century which means they are more concerned about the next meal than killing us (except right after we deliver their monthly aid shipment).
2. Only the educated are truly dangerous and there are very few of them and most are not practicing Muslims.
3. The practicing Muslims almost always show their hand. Consider Hasan as an example although a bit extreme.

But what to do?
Obviously nothing.

Just think, if you shun (as in what practicing Amish do) the Practicing Muslim then you're more likely to go to jail than they are. Or worse, have to listen to Chris Matthews 24-7.
Then, there's all those trials in NYC you'll have to attend.
Dear Mr. Imani

You are one of the very few people with the courage to tell the truth about Islam and I am a huge admirer and supporter of your work.

I post many of your articles on my website, and my readers appreciate seeing them more than you can imagine.
