Islam: Making a Difference, One Body at a Time

"Mohammed is God's apostle. Those who follow him are harsh to the unbelievers but merciful to one another."  Quran 48: 29

"O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty"  Qur'an, Sura 9:123

Let's be clear, Islam is the only religion (ideology) in the world that prescribes violence against other people who are "unbelievers". There are some 109 verses prescribing violent "war" against those who oppose Islamic "rule."  In fact there are few counterbalancing views of tolerance or peace in the Quran. There's no "turn the other cheek" in Islam!  Yes, the Old Testament has violence but it is confined to the specific historical situation, not an open-ended prescription of violence.

Mohammed himself was a violent man in a violent time which is amply reflected in the Quran. This is the source of centuries of blood and tears caused by Islamic violence. Since 9/11 alone, there are over 20,000 deaths attributed to Muslim jihadists (not including war deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq).  To read more about Islam and the Quran, see the website called Religion of Peace.  

Recent worldwide Islamic Terrorist Acts:
  • In the past week alone: April 6 to April 12, there were 49 Jihadist attacks killing 195 persons with 468 injured.
  • In the last month alone, March 2013, there 189 Jihadist attacks killing 988 and injuring 2093 persons.
For a very good and complete list of Islamic terror since Sept 11, 2001, check out this very detailed list.

Outrageous Muslim Violence In Thailand

In my blog "One Day, 5 Murders By Islamists in Thailand", I describe that over 4000 persons (Buddhists) have been mowed down by Islamic murderers in southern Thailand since 2004.  The reason?  Oh there are made up reasons including separatist feelings, but the truth is that these people are ignorant, useless and desperately unhappy and lash out at anyone in murderous rage----a rage supported by they religion!  These people are criminals plain and simple.

I say in that blog:  "As in all other parts of the Muslim world, this violence continues because no citizen informs the authorities of sons, friends, brothers or cousins that are making bombs, buying grenades, hiding guns and plotting attacks.

Because no citizen stands up for what is right, the entire community is complicit in the violence!

It's not just the "radical element" as the "politically correct" would like you to believe.  The violence is supported by Muslim scripture, teachings and many religious leaders everywhere and tolerated by the entire Muslim community.  The entire Islamic culture refuses any self-examination since they blame everyone else for their problems."

Boston Bombers

I'm listening to the media coverage of the Boston marathon bombers and the subject of Islam hasn't come up much at all.   Very few reporters would even know how to handle such a topic.  In case you haven't heard, both suspects were Islamic from Chechnya and/or Russia.

One of the bombers is reported to have said that "I don't have any American friends. I don't understand them."  I find this telling and it reminds me of the few occasions that I've been around Muslims in America.  Usually Muslims that I've met (since I was in engineering field and met mostly engineers) were reasonably prosperous but unhappy to be here.  They'd rather be back in their home countries regardless how impoverished or violent.  I've noticed that Muslim women (wives), in particular, do not integrate well into the community. To a great extent they choose this (of course) by separating themselves due to their attitudes, social awkwardness, low confidence and their choice of clothes (wearing scarves or Hijab headgear).  Muslims are not so common in America but those that are here seem to integrate somewhat better in this country and in Canada compared to other places.  In Britain, for example, Muslims create entire "Islamic" neighborhoods where "nonbelievers" can face intimidation by thugs or punks.

Back to the Boston Bomber deaths.  Don't expect any condemnations of such violence by any Islamic leaders.  There won't be any.
