Islam: What the West Needs to Know (Review)

An honest and complete look at Islam will prove that it is inherently and fundamentally violent and not "peaceful" as Western cultures define and perceive the word, peaceful. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim and this is why the West's "call to action" for moderate Muslims is futile and flawed at its foundation.

There are moderate and secular people who placate Islam as muslims because of the social and cultural pressures (in a similar way many Christians and Jews pretend to be Christian or Jewish within their respective circles). Actually, many of the moderate leaders in the Muslim world have been installed there or propped up there by the various powers of the modern Babylonian commercial system (an international financial cartel which is threatened by religious fundamentalism of any kind). Yet, the West's biggest danger is not the overt true muslims. It is the covert true muslims who move in and placate Westerners with deceitful language and manipulative schemes that utilize the very government legal systems which true muslims desire to dismantle. Confusing which of these groups is truly authentic in their faith is dangerous in the most existential threatening way.

To better understand many of these realities, I suggest watching the documentary “Islam: What the West Needs to Know”.

Summary: Claiming that Islam is inherently violent and seeks to destroy all other faiths, cultures and systems of government, this provocative film presents Islamic writings to prove that fanaticism is not limited to just a few misguided souls. In interviews, noted experts on Islam refute mainstream media, diplomats and officials who have described Islam as a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name represent a radical fringe.

"Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" is also very insightful into the West's massive misunderstanding of its most primal, existential threat: Islam. These are things Jew-dah and I0-Israel need to comprehend clearly... for Islam may be the prophetic representation of "the Hunters" that Jeremiah 16:16 speaks. So who is ultimately sending these Hunters after us? I believe it is יהוה Who is sending and/or allowing these adversaries to come as punishment and as a corrective force amongst the goyim concentrations of Ephraim in the West.

How imminent is this threat? The World Muslim population is 1.57 billion, which means about 1 in 4 people in the world practice Islam. The threat is not at the door. The threat is moving into our backyard.

  1. There has been many discussions by Jews and Christians regarding the Koran. In recent times there has been an emphasis on Koran and violence and Koran and freedom and Koran and women. Although I have dealt with the issue of violence and freedom in my other posts, I will talk about another issue which I think is absolutely crucial in understanding why the Jews and Christians can never accept the Koran. There are of course many other reasons why people question the Koran, and certainly in the history and current reality of many adherents of the so called Islamic faith do raise issues regarding freedom and women and violence. But my main concern is about these two religious traditions and why the real issues that separate them from the Koran are rarely highlighted.

    Though these two religions reject each other and are odds with one another but they do have one thing in common regarding the Koran. My purpose here is to explain the role of Jesus in shaping the attitude these two religions have regarding the Koran.

    Those who pay attention can notice that there is constant attempt by Christians, and here I mean the orthodoxy, to paint Islam as somehow different from either Christianity or even Judaism. Muhammad is never compared with any of the prophets you read in the Bible. There is always an attempt even to distance their God from the God of the Koran. The reality is these differences they try to propagate are fakes. Because the real difference and point of contention between the Koran and these two religions is on what they believe about Jesus and what the Koran says about Jesus. Both these religious traditions could never accept the Jesus reality as presented in the Koran. Once again these are not the only issues, but as a Koranist who does not confirm to Sunni/Shia sectarianism, my intention is to highlight their rejection of the Koran. I will show how regardless of any other issues, the Jesus of the Koran stand in stark contradiction to the central theological core of these two faiths, Judaism and Christianity as practiced and understood by the orthodoxies.

    The Koran says it came to confirm the previous scriptures:

    5.46. And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear God.

    “It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong),” (3:3).

    2.41 And believe in what I reveal, confirming the revelation which is with you, and be not the first to reject Faith therein, nor sell My Signs for a small price; and fear Me, and Me alone.

    2.89 And when there comes to them a Book from God, confirming what is with them,- although from of old they had prayed for victory against those without Faith,- when there comes to them that which they (should) have recognized, they refuse to believe in it but the curse of God is on those without Faith.

    If the Koran came to confirm the Torah and Gospel and speaks of them as Divine revelations, why would both the Jews and Christians have a serious problem with the Koran? The answer is Jesus.

    The Christian orthodoxy is built around the divinity of Jesus, and the Jewish orthodoxy is built on the awaiting of the Messiah and their rejection of Jesus as the Messiah and indeed of his miraculous birth. Although these are not the only issues the orthodoxies are structured around, without them the orthodoxy can not maintain itself as it is.

    So what does the Koran say about Jesus?

    When the angel said, “Mary, God gives you a good tidings of a Word from Him whose name is messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, -high honored shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to God. He shall speak to men in the cradle, and of age, and righteous he shall be, “lord” said Mary “How shall I have a son, seeing no mortal has touched me? “Even so, he said “God creates what He will”. When he decrees a thing He but say to it, “Be”, and it is. (Al-Imran 3:45-47)

    “Then she brought the child to her folk, carrying him, and they said, “Mary, you have surely committed a monstrous thing. Sister of Aaron, your father was not a wicked man, nor your mother a woman unchaste. Mary pointed to the child; but they said, ‘Hoe shall we speak to one who still in the cradle, a little child. And he said, ‘Lo, I am God’s servant, God has given me the Book and made me a Prophet Blessed He has made me ,wherever/may be; and He has enjoined me to prayer, and to give the alms so long as I live, and likewise to cherish my mother; He has not made me arrogant and wicked. Peace be upon me, the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised up alive. “Maryam 19:29-33)

    5.110.Then will God say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel and behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’

    This will be absolutely rejected by the Jewish Rabbis. This not only confirms the miraculous birth of Jesus but also confirms he was the awaited messiah as promised in the Hebrew Bible. The Jews rejected Jesus and still do and these verses alone are more than enough to convince the Judaic orthodoxy to reject the Koran outright. Nothing stands against the Judaic orthodoxy more than these verses.

    As far as the Christian orthodoxy:

    “And they say, The All-Merciful has taken unto Himself a son. You have indeed advanced something hideous. As if the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder and its mountain to fall down in the utter ruin for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and behaves not the All-merciful to take a son. None there in the heavens and earth but comes to the All-Merciful as a servant” (Maryam 19:88-93)

    Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God’s sight is as Adam’s likeness; He created him of dust, then He said upon him, ‘Be’ and he was. (Al-Imran 3:59)

    People of the Book, do not go beyond the bounds in your religion, and say nought as to God but the Truth. The messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only the messenger of God, and his word that he committed to Mary, and a spirit originating from Him. So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not ‘Three’. Refrain, better is for you. God is only one God. Glory be to him-that He should have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the Heavens and in the Earth; God suffices for a guardian.(4.171)

    This is of course in stark contrast and indeed a denunciation of the Christian orthodoxy which is structured on the divinity of Jesus and the Trinity. These verses alone completely nullify that orthodoxy in its core theological understanding.

    So both these religions can not accept that Jesus was the awaited Messiah born of a miraculous nature but yet human and completely unassociated physically with the Almighty. Yet these issues are never discussed and distractions are usually presented. Of course these are not the only issues since Islam has a sectarian component as represented by the Sunni/Shia religions which rely on oral traditions, known as hadiths that dominate their religions and in many cases contradict the Koran. But the verses I presented today I am sure will clearly indicate that the verses about Jesus in the Koran by itself is enough for the Judaic and Christian orthodoxy to reject the Koran outright.

    So there you have it.

  2. Yahweh says that the descendants of Ishmael will be like a wild ass kicking against the stalls. It’s the nature of the people and until their nature is changed then they, like a drug addict or alcoholic or pedophile or some other addiction will be ‘naturally prone’ to violence….and against the stalls…ie the confines of living. we in ‘truth of Yahweh’ do not kick against such truth….we kick against the errors of such truth. Yahweh defined the truth. The Ishmaelites are from the loins of Avraham, like Israel is from the loins of Avraham. So if Yahweh is correct about Israel then He is correct about Ishmael….Ishmael needs a basic correction in his nature…he needs true salvation to change his nature. Circumcision of the flesh alone cannot bring circumcision of the heart…Ishmael embodies this more precisely than any one group of people on earth. Ishmael needs to abandon his following of the false prophet and the false shepherds and he needs to follow the God of his father Avraham in order to stop himself from ‘kicking against the stalls’. Jihad is not the answer….Yahweh Elohim is the answer………

  3. I recently saw the documentary, and as much as I would like to believe Islam is a fundamentally violent religion, prone to hegemony and expansion, there is no hard evidence for this presented. You can dress it with scholarly quotes and lengthy reflections, but the facts remain: this is a piece of propaganda, and the conclusion was decided before the production ever began.

  4. Watching these in-conjunction with it… may be insightful… especially the Farewell Israel one, because it goes into greater historical detail.

    1.) Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West (2006) NR – Featuring clips from Arab-world television and interviews with a range of personalities, including guerilla fighters and self-styled terrorists, this film chronicles the fanaticism arising in extremist wings of modern Islamic fundamentalist groups. In a documentary that is both provocative and unflinching, filmmakers Wayne Kopping and Raphael Shore explore topics such as “The Culture of Hatred,” “Jihad in the West” and “Media of Terrorism.”
    2.) Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam (2007) NR – Tracing the historical journey of Islam from its birth in A.D. 624 to its role in contemporary society, this comprehensive program sheds light on the struggles of adherents to the religion and its political implications in the modern world. Topics include the long-standing conflicts between Muslims and Jews, as well as how Bush’s reaction to the World Trade Center attacks in 2001 inflamed tensions between Muslims and the West.
    3.) The Third Jihad (2008) NR – Exposes the war the media is not telling you about. It reveals the enemy our government is too afraid to name. One person who is not afraid to tell you the truth is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress. After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to destroy America from within, Dr. Jasser decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered. Interviews are conducted with radical Islamists in the US and the leaders trying to stop them, such as Rudy Giuliani, Clinton CIA Director Jim Woolsey, NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Senator Joe Lieberman, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, and former terrorist group member Tawfik Hamid.
