I assembled this treatment many years ago and had posted it on my old MySpace page around January 2010. I present it here, a bit modified and updated. I do so because, in spite of all false claims of bigotry inevitably to be hurled my way, and in spite of the premeditated thrust by the Globalist elite to utilize Islamic violence to foment social disruption and orchestrate chaos as a tool to achieve their end-goals of subduing national governments while culling the global population, the actual truth about Islam MUST be persistently disclosed throughout it all. To quote from The Urantia Book, “The truth never suffers from honest examination.”
For nearly 1,400 years Islamic ideology has stifled the progressive momentum of segments of society within the Middle-Eastern and African world. Some Muslims, particularly in the Western world, persist in associating themselves with Islam not only for weight of tradition but also due to sublimated intimidation. To be sure, beyond the influence of tradition, the driving force that perpetuates the spread of Islam is what that tradition embraces: intimidation, misogyny, rape, mayhem and butchery and the threat of it, and profuse promises of carnal pleasures in the afterlife. The very inclination to objectively explore and to question the rationale and logic of the teachings written in its sacred books is stifled by sublimated fear, a fear that induces an attitude of denial of the overt call to violence, a fear which itself is regarded as a sign of appropriate if obligatory piety.
Are “fanatics,” otherwise known as “Islamic Extremists” or “Islamic Militants/Radicals,” really perverting Islam? Just exactly what could possibly so brainwash men (and women) that they would lay firm hold on a belief-system which portrays the slaughter of Christians, Jews, homosexuals, and even uncooperative Muslims and atheists alike, as a service to [their] God?
Could it possibly be that, as Craig Winn puts it, “terrorists have not corrupted their religion; Islam [more specifically, the Qur’an] has corrupted them”?
The world’s peoples could never hope to achieve intellectual uniformity on religious matters. Varying religious ideology is inevitable, perhaps even valuable to the extent that it nurtures character development. Advancing Democracy must always make allowance for such variances.
However, when one man’s religious ideology constitutes a threat to civilizing Democracy, to another man’s well-being, even to his life, then moral righteousness demands an intervention. Vanguards of goodness and righteousness who value spirit unity among the world’s religionists MUST BE compelled to step in to defend the right of existence of peace-loving detractors against the genocidal acts of zealots who are propelled by grossly misguided, cult ideology.
Among his writings on the subject, John Adams, the 2nd President of the United States, wrote this:
“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting, from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God, he connected indissolubly with it the audacious falsehood that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting, from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and [by] the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus.” (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.) 1
In a recent article entitled, “Islam: Has It “Always Been Part of America”?”, Joseph Klein wrote:
“America’s first war against foreign states since achieving its independence was against Muslim powers. Muslim potentates from the Barbary States – Morocco, Algeria, Tunis, and Tripolitania – were plundering American commercial vessels and holding Americans hostage for ransom in the years beginning shortly after the United States won its freedom from Great Britain. They went to war with the United States when their demand for tribute was refused by President Thomas Jefferson. It took two Barbary Wars to defeat this Muslim threat.
Both Jefferson and John Adams had confronted the theocratic ideology of Islamic jihad first-hand years earlier, when they sought to negotiate an end to attacks by the Muslim Barbary Coast pirates and the holding of American captives for ransom. While Jefferson was serving as ambassador to France and Adams was serving as ambassador to Britain, both men met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the ambassador to Britain from the “Dey of Algiers.” They wanted to know why the Muslim rulers were sanctioning attacks on American merchant ships and taking Americans hostage when the young United States had done nothing to provoke any of the Muslim Barbary States.
As Jefferson and Adams described in a letter to John Jay on March 28, 1786, the Muslim ambassador explained that the conduct of the Barbary Coast pirates “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.
In short, when the newly independent United States was at its most vulnerable, our country faced Muslim enemies animated by jihad.” 2
So where is the proof?
The condensed articulation of the following verses of the Qur’an is derived from the work of Craig Winn, author of the book, “Prophet of Doom.”3
The verse selections below are from Mr. Winn’s website, as it existed back some six years ago. It must be made clear that there are at least (3) three different translations of the Qur’an into English that are apparently acknowledged by Islam, although adherents will hasten to add that “any translation of the Qur’an immediately ceases to be the literal word of Allah, and hence cannot be equated with the Qur’an in its original Arabic form.” I converted the verse references into hyperlinks to lead directly to the corresponding, multi-version English-translated verses of the Qur’an which appear in one of the online sources most acknowledged by adherents of Islam, the USC-MSA Compendium of Muslim Texts. (These links do not open a new tab/window.) Sometime in the last few years, USC re-vamped the website, changing the URL from http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/quran/ to http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/
Before hitting upon the new link associations for each verse citation, I explored resorting to the Wayback Machine, where the older version of the database still exists. While exploring that option, I found that an associated, very telling, interpretive work (noted below) was scrubbed from the new webpage, and that the auto-forward from the old URL sends you to the “Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement” ( http://www.cmje.org/ ), where ‘pluralism’ is touted and “Jihad” is depicted as a struggle to develop morals and to take a stand for human rights. All chuckles aside, that is quite an insult to one’s intelligence.
As you ponder and puke from the following ‘verses’ from the Qur’an, please ponder what the real solution MUST be.
UPDATE — December 2, 2016: Between the time I published this blog post in August 2016 and today, the “Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement” TOOK DOWN the availability of their online texts. No small wonder. All that is left available is a search engine leading to lame generalities allegedly descriptive of the actual content. Consequently, this Information Warrior by the moniker Opey606 WILL take the time to painstakingly RE-ASSIGN the links of the verses delineated below so that they open to the corresponding verses within the online texts within the MSA Compendium of Online Texts IN … THE WAYBACK MACHINE!!
The citing of Craig Winn’s website and literary work here is not to be construed as tacit concurrence with Mr. Winn’s personal religious beliefs. For the record, the thrust of my personal interest is to portray divine Reality as consisting of the unwavering compassion and loving ministry of all spiritual agencies as they are mobilized to catalyze the social progress of humankind toward the eventual worldwide acknowledgement of the brotherhood of all humankind under the universal Fatherhood of God, the path to which wars, even so-called religious or ‘holy’ wars, are NOT divinely ordained, sanctioned, or prophesied. Such may or may not be reflective of Craig Winn’s personal belief-system.
Qur’an:9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”
Qur’an:9:29 “Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”
Qur’an:8:39 and 2:193 (Duplicated within the Qur’an!) “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”
Qur’an:9:14 “Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, lay them low, and cover them with shame. He will help you over them.”
Qur’an:8:65 “O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.”
Qur’an:9:38 & 9:39 “Believers, what is the matter with you, that when you are asked to go forth and fight in Allah’s Cause you cling to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? Unless you go forth, He will afflict and punish you with a painful doom, and put others in your place.”
Qur’an:9:123 “Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you.”
Qur’an:8:72 “Those who accepted Islam and left their homes to fight in Allah’s Cause with their possessions and persons, and those who gave (them) asylum, aid, and shelter, those who harbored them–these are allies of one another. You are not responsible for protecting those who embraced Islam but did not leave their homes [to fight] until they do so.” [Another translation reads:] “You are only called to protect Muslims who fight.”
Qur’an:8:73 “The unbelieving infidels are allies. Unless you (Muslims) aid each other (fighting as one united block to make Allah’s religion victorious), there will be confusion and mischief. Those who accepted Islam, left their homes to fight in Allah’s Cause (al-Jihad), as well as those who give them asylum, shelter, and aid– these are (all) Believers: for them is pardon and bountiful provision (in Paradise).”
Qur’an:48:16 “Say (Muhammad) to the wandering desert Arabs who lagged behind: ‘You shall be invited to fight against a people given to war with mighty prowess. You shall fight them until they surrender and submit. If you obey, Allah will grant you a reward, but if you turn back, as you did before, He will punish you with a grievous torture.”
Qur’an:48:22 “If the unbelieving infidels fight against you, they will retreat. (Such has been) the practice (approved) of Allah in the past: no change will you find in the ways of Allah.”
Qur’an:47:4 (Also from “The Noble Qur’an”) “When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”
Qur’an 9:19 “Do you make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Mosque, equal to those who fight in the Cause of Allah? They are not comparable in the sight of Allah. Those who believe, and left their homes, striving with might, fighting in Allah’s Cause with their goods and their lives, have the highest rank in the sight of Allah.”
Qur’an:2:193 “Fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief) and religion is only for Allah. But if they cease/desist, let there be no hostility except against infidel disbelievers.”
Qur’an:2:217 “They question you concerning fighting in the sacred month. Say: ‘Fighting therein is a grave (matter); but to prevent access to Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, to expel its members, and polytheism are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they make you renegades from your religion. If any of you turn back and die in unbelief, your works will be lost and you will go to Hell. Surely those who believe and leave their homes to fight in Allah’s Cause have the hope of Allah’s mercy.”
Qur’an:2:244 “Fight in Allah’s Cause, and know that Allah hears and knows all.”
Qur’an:2:246 “He said: ‘Would you refrain from fighting if fighting were prescribed for you?’ They said: ‘How could we refuse to fight in Allah’s Cause?'”
Qur’an:61:2 “O Muslims, why say one thing and do another? Grievously odious and hateful is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not. Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in a battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.”
Qur’an:3:146 “How many prophets fought in Allah’s Cause? With them (fought) myriads of godly men who were slain. They never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah’s Cause, nor did they weaken nor give in. Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast [warriors].”
Qur’an:3:153 “Behold! You ran off precipitately, climbing up the high hill without even casting a side glance at anyone, while the Messenger in your rear is calling you from your rear, urging you to fight. Allah gave you one distress after another by way of requital, to teach you not to grieve for the booty that had escaped you and for (the ill) that had befallen you.”
Qur’an:3:154 “Say: ‘Even if you had remained in your houses, those ordained to be slaughtered would have gone forth to the places where they were to be slain.”
Qur’an:61:4 “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His Cause.”
Qur’an:61:11 “Believers, shall I lead you to a bargain or trade that will save you from a painful torment? That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive and fight in Allah’s Cause with your property and your lives: That will be best for you!”
Qur’an 61:12 “He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Eden: that is indeed the Supreme Achievement. And another (favor) which you love: help from Allah for a speedy victory over your enemies.”
Qur’an:8:5 “Your Lord ordered you out of your homes to fight for the true cause, even though some Muslims disliked it, and were averse (to fighting).”
Qur’an:24:53 “They swear their strongest oaths saying that if only you would command them. They would leave their homes (and go forth fighting in Allah’s Cause). Say: ‘Swear not; Obedience is (more) reasonable.'”
Qur’an:4:74 “Let those who fight in Allah’s Cause sell this world’s life for the hereafter. To him who fights in Allah’s Cause, whether he is slain or victorious, We shall give him a reward.”
Qur’an:4:75 “What reason have you that you should not fight in Allah’s Cause?” [Another translation says:] “What is wrong with you that you do not fight for Allah?”
Qur’an:4:76 “Those who believe fight in the Cause of Allah.”
Qur’an:4:77 “Have you not seen those to whom it was said: Withhold from fighting, perform the prayer and pay the zakat. But when orders for fighting were issued, a party of them feared men as they ought to have feared Allah. They say: ‘Our Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?‘”
Qur’an:4:78 “Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers strong and high! So what is wrong with these people, that they fail to understand these simple words?”
Qur’an:4:84 “Then fight (Muhammad) in Allah’s Cause. Incite the believers to fight with you.”
Qur’an:4:94 “Believers, when you go abroad to fight wars in Allah’s Cause, investigate carefully, and say not to anyone who greets you: ‘You are not a believer!’ Coveting the chance profits of this life (so that you may despoil him). With Allah are plenteous spoils and booty.”
Qur’an:4:95 “Not equal are believers who sit home and receive no hurt and those who fight in Allah’s Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who fight with their possessions and bodies to those who sit home. Those who fight He has distinguished with a special reward.”
Qur’an:4:100 & 4:101 “He who leaves his home in Allah’s Cause finds abundant resources and many a refuge. Should he die as a refugee for Allah and His Messenger His reward becomes due and sure with Allah. When you travel through the earth there is no blame on you if you curtail your worship for fear unbelievers may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are your enemy.”
Qur’an:4:102 “When you (Prophet) lead them in prayer, let some stand with you, taking their arms with them. When they finish their prostrations, let them take positions in the rear. And let others who have not yet prayed come—taking all precaution, and bearing arms. The Infidels wish, if you were negligent of your arms, to assault you in a rush. But there is no blame on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because you are ill; but take precaution. For the Unbelieving Infidels Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment.”
Qur’an:4:104 “And do not relent in pursuing the enemy.”
In the process of exploring the use of the Wayback Machine to resurrect this piece, I discovered that the inclusion in that former version of USC’s Compendium page of the 1962 work by S. Abul A’la Maududi, “The Finality of Prophethood,” was not repeated in the new USC website, as far as I could tell, as there doesn’t seem to be a ‘Search’ function available. Below is the link to it using the Wayback Machine, and also for good measure I include a link to the same work posted in Scribd.
Be sure to read, near the bottom of his paper, the section entitled, “The Verdict of These Traditions,” wherein Mr. Maududi presents his elaboration on the Qur’an’s alleged prophecy of the coming eradication of all Jews and all other ‘unbelievers’ (“infidels”) once Jesus returns to dissolve Christianity and submit himself to Islam as a non-prophet:
“At this moment of crisis, Christson of Mary (PBUH) will descend near a white minaret in the Eastern quarter of Damascus. After the morning prayers, Christ (PBUH) will advance with the Muslims for fighting against Dajjal. The enemy will retreat before the powerful assault of Christ son of Mary, and Dajjal will run away towards Israel by way of the slope of Afiq (Reference to Tradition No. 21). Christ (PBUH) will pursue Dajjal and destroy him on the airfield of Lydda (Traditions No. 10-14- 15). A great slaughter of the Jews will ensue and every one of them will be annihilated. The nation of Jews will be exterminated (Traditions No. 9-15-21). At the proclamation of truth by Christ, the Christian religion will become extinct (Traditions No. 1-2-4-6). And the followers of all religions, their former having renounced allegiances, will amalgamate to form the one and only brotherhood of Islam. The traditions reveal this fact clearly beyond any doubt.”

The Muslim Agenda – Full Documentary – Banned in some countries
This video effectively makes the point that the media has persistently attempted to foist the falsehood that Islam is a peaceful religion and that what the media refers to as “Radical Islam” is fueled by misinterpretation of its holy books. Unfortunately, the video also does some foisting of its own: portraying 9/11 as a terror event perpetrated by Muslims. For the record, 9/11 was a FALSE FLAG staged terror state crime perpetrated by the Mossad and covert, deep-state U.S. Intelligence to scapegoat Muslims for the initiating of the ‘War on Terrorism” hoax.

Islam: What The West Needs To Know (Full Video)
This documentary (4) consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling. Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.
Outline of the Documentary (5)
We hear from prominent Western leaders that Islam is peaceful and that those who commit violence in its name are heterodox fanatics.
Part 1: ‘There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet’
Our interviewees affirm their belief that Islamic violence is entirely orthodox behavior for Muslims and stems directly from the teachings and example of the Prophet Muhammad and the commands of the Koran. We learn that the example of Muhammad is one of a violent warlord who killed numerous people. The Koran – the verbatim words of Allah – prescribes violence against non-Muslims and Muhammad is the perfect example of the Koran in action.
Part 2: The Struggle
We learn that jihad, while literally meaning ‘struggle’, in fact denotes war fought against non-Muslims in order to bring the rule of Islamic law to the world. Violent death in jihad is, according to the Koran, the only assurance of salvation. One of our interviewees tells of his personal involvement in terrorism and his leaving Islam.
Part 3: Expansion
Following the death of Muhammad, his ‘rightly-guided’ successors carried his wars to three continents, fighting, enslaving, and massacring countless Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others. Islam did not spread through evangelism or through its natural appeal, but through aggressive wars of conquest. The Crusades were largely a belated response on the part of Christian Europe to rescue Christians in the Holy Land suffering under Muslim oppression. The Muslim world today, while no longer the unified empire of the Caliphs, is exceptional for being responsible for the vast majority of conflicts around the world and for almost all of international terrorism.
Part 4: ‘War is Deceit’
A great problem with Western efforts to understand Islam is due to the Islamic principle of ‘religious deception’, which enjoins Muslims to deceive non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. Muslim groups today in the West employ deception and omission to give the impression that ‘Islam is a religion of peace’, an utter fiction.
Part 5: More than a Religion
The most important characteristic of Islam not understood by the West is that it is more a system of government than a personal religion. Throughout its history, Islam has never recognized a distinction between the religious and the secular/political. Islamic law [Sharia] (6) (PDF file) governs every aspect of religious, political, and personal action, which amounts to a form of totalitarianism that is divinely enjoined to dominate the world, analogous in many ways to Communism.
Part 6: The House of War
Islamic theology divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat, dar al-Islam (House of Islam – where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb (House of War – the rest of the world). It is incumbent on dar al-Islam to fight and conquer dar al-harb and permanently assimilate it. Muslims in Western nations are called to subvert the secular regimes in which they now live in accordance with Allah’s command. Due to political correctness and general government and media irresponsibility, the danger posed by observant Muslims in the West remains largely unappreciated.
