Islamophobia and Arabophobia has been part of western culture since the Crusades, with Saddam and Osama only the latest in a long line of Arab bogeymen. The real reason for the current spate of Islamophobia is the fact that Islam has been the fastest growing religion in the world and as such poses a threat to the West. This is happening inspite of widespread misconceptions and negative media portrayed of Islam.
Prejudice against Islam in the West developed due to historic rivalry of Christianity against Islam. The defeat of Christians by the Muslims in Crusades was a big shock for the Christian world. These deep wounds are still so fresh in the Christian world today that the parents, media, politicians and teachers feel it a duty to nurture the feelings of prejudice against Islam in the hearts and minds of their young generations. According to Runnymede Trust, Britain has become “an institutionally Islamophobic” society in which Muslims are demonised. Hostility towards Muslims is still a major problem and is not being taken seriously enough by race relations bodies. According to Dr. Richard Stone, there is now renewed talk of a clash of civilizations, a new global cold war, and mounting concern that the already fragile foothold gained by Muslim communities in Britain is threatened by ignorance and intolerance. According to John Gieve of the Home office, Islamic extremism might be a “symptom of disaffection”. The same disaffection previously surfaced during the riots that shook Oldham and Bradford in 2001.
Jews and Christian scholars, the so called Western Orientals have always tried to mispresent Islam in their writings. They have always tried to spread baseless lies against Islam in a very authentic and scholarly style, hiding their deep rooted hatred against Islam. They have called all efforts to restore pure Islam in Muslim countries as “fundamentalist movements” against modern-day material progress and economic development. Lacy O’Leary in the book “Islam at the cross road”: “history makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.” Even Gandhi refuted the false propaganda, otherwise, one could not find even a single Hindu or non-Muslim in the Indian sub-continent and on top of that Sikhism could not dare to emerge as a religion. India would be the largest Muslim country in the world. In the 20th century new images emerged, the fanatical terrorist, the stone-thrower and the suicide bomber. According to Lord Carey, there was a deep-rooted Islamophobia in Britain. There is a worrying ignorance of Muslim people and suspicion of their presence in the United Kingdom. It is assumed by many that Muslims wish to take over ‘our country and if we allow them to enter Britain in significant numbers they will in time make the country Islamic’.
Mr. Denis MacShane, the Minister for Europe urged British Muslims to adopt the “British norms” and not the way of the “terrorists”, in other words “Islamic way”. He provoked Muslims to choose between the “British way” and the way of terrorism.” Monica Ali’s, who was mis-educated and de-educated by the British education system, portrays Bangladeshi Muslims in Brick Lane as backward, uneducated and unsophisticated. This is the main reason why her book was selected for Guardian First Book Award. The content of the book is a despicable insult to Bengali Muslims at home and abroad. The book can be compared to Salman Rushdie’s Stanic Verses. The combined forces of racial discrimination and Islamophobia have been awesome in the marginalisation and alienation of the Muslim community. Muslims made to feel like an enemy within by Islamophobic attitudes. Hardening prejudice against Islam is creating a dis-affected underclass of young Muslims “time-bombs” likely to explode into violence, according to a recent report. Life for Britain 1.6 million Muslims has never been easy. For decades they have struggled in the face of discrimination in all walks of life. West is not based on Judio-Christian civilisation. This term should be abandoned to be replaced by Judio-Christian-Islamic civilisation. The new language should be used in all venues starting with media, academic statements by politicians, church leaders and Imams of Masajid. These are the words that define how we are related to each other’s.
Through out the modern history, Muslims have contributed for the Renaissance of Western culture and society. Islamic values are not only compatible with the western values they are almost identical. Islamic ideas helped shape the European West that produced the values cherished by the constitution’s framers. Western culture is infact based on Muslim culture. The aim of education is to give the highest possible standard in order to advance spiritually, emotionally, technologically and economically. The early Muslim knew this and they were instrumental in giving the west much of the scientific knowledge that has once helped it to thrive.
Bernard Shaw once said that the future religion of the West would be Islam and only Islam. Islamophobia is guiding Westerners towards that end. They study with open mind the Holy Quran and Islamic literature and poetry. Islam is a force fighting Imperialism. Read the greatest book of revolution: The Holy Quran. Meet the greatest revolutionary of all times: Muhammad (peace be upon him). In America a great number of universities, colleges and schools are offering Islamic Studies courses. There is a possibility that in the near future half of native population would revert to Islam. In fact Islamophobia is a blessing in disguise.

|Message ||Dear Mr. Iftikhar Ahmad
I am afraid you are living in Lah Lah land. First of all Islam is not the fastest growing religion. Yes Muslims do procreate faster but this is the nature of all poor and uneducated people. Secondly there are more Muslims leaving Islam than any other religion losing their followers. Please wake up and smell the coffee.
Now the real reason for Islamophobia is because many Muslims are active terrorists. They kill people. Aren’t you watching the news?
Then we have people like you who brazenly deny the real cause of Islamophobia and accuse the terrorized people of paranoia and misunderstanding, hence adding more insults to the injury and give more reasons for people to fear Islam and consider it the religion of a people incapable of rational thought.
Islam does not pose any threat for being, as you put it, “the fastest growing religion”. It is not the fastest growing religion! And even if it were no one would give a damn, just as no one gives a damn to the growth of Falun Gong, which by having over 100 million fresh converts in just 10 years is the actual fastest growing religion. The fear of Islam does not come from its alleged and bogus fast rate of growth but from your terrorist brethrens, your holy book of terror and your barefaced denial.
You accuse the Westerners of being prejudiced against Islam and being rancorous for the defeat of the crusaders. It is this absurd and mindless thinking that is frightening. What prejudice are you talking about when Muslims can even run for political offices in these so called “Christian” countries and they enjoy all the benefits that other citizens have? Compare that to the plight of the Christians and other minorities in Islamic countries. What rights do they have? ...None!
You talk about the loss of crusaders? Sir, the “Christians” have won! They won long time ago. The very fact that you have left your poor and Islam-devastated country and have come to their doors to seek a better life is proof enough that they have won. What have the Muslims won? Are they technologically more advanced? Are they better educated? Are they more democratic? Is the index of crime lower in Islamic countries? Are they happier? What can you show forth as the proof that you have won? “Historic rivalry of Christianity against Islam”?... Methinks your mind has been left behind in the middle Ages. Sir, people are afraid of Islam because your fellow coreligionists are killing them not because of what happened centuries ago. Most of them do not even know what happened in crusades. Some of them are so deluded that even have issued apologies for the crusades. You are talking nonsense. … “Crusades” eh?... “Historic rivalry of Christianity against Islam”? You are so depressingly funny!
Mr. Iftikhar Ahmad, for your information, people in the West do not care anymore about Christianity, crusades and what happened 900 or 400 years ago. Unlike Muslims who are stuck in the past, they are living in the 21st century and they have their own concerns. It is not just the Europeans who are becoming "Islamophobic". Also the Koreans, the Japanese and nations that had nothing to do with crusades are starting to fear Islam and the Muslims. There are many who were born into Islam and now are afraid of Islam. We are all afraid of Islam because Islam is a religion of terror. This is not phobia, the fear is very real and justifiable. Muhammad promised to “instill terror in the hearts of the unbelievers”. (Quran 8:12) Your prophet has succeeded. Now the world fears Islam. Your unwillingness to accept responsibility and blame the victims of paranoia makes Islam look even more hideous. Your refusal to see the truth is a living testament that Islam is an insanity that if not contained it will blow up the world.
You accuse Jew and Christian scholars of misrepresenting Islam. I am neither Jew nor Christian. Yet I declare that they are not misrepresenting Islam. I read the Quran, the Hadith and enough of the history of Islam to know Islam is not a religion but a dangerous cult, created by a controlling and sadistic cult leader. I have proven this point without a shadow of doubt. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong and I will remove this site with an apology. This challenge is four years old and I am still waiting.
You claim: “forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myths that historians have ever repeated.” And you call those who say such thing liars. Tell me which history you read? Is Tabari good enough? How Islam came to Iran, Egypt, Spain or India? Millions died defending their courtiers against marauding Muslims – 80 millions were massacred only in India. Those wretched souls were your own ancestors. This was the biggest holocaust. Now you are siding with the murderers of your ancestors and say it is just a “fantastically absurd myth”? Are you trying to rewrite the history? Where do you think these “pure” Islamists get their inspiration to bomb, behead and murder innocent people? Isn’t it all in the examples set by Muhammad and his explicit instructions in the Quran?
Ironically, you are calling upon the non-Muslims, not to be prejudiced against the Muslims but at the same time you threaten that the “Hardening prejudice against Islam is creating a dis-affected underclass of young Muslims ‘time-bombs’ likely to explode into violence”. With that kind of statement do you really expect people to believe Islam is a religion of peace? So basically what you say is that people must agree that Islam is a religion of peace otherwise there would be violence! What is deplorable in all this is that you think your readers are stupid.
You expressed your concern for Muslims losing their foothold in Britain and accuse your hosts of ignorance and intolerance. Don't you think that those disaffected and violent young Muslims that according to you are time bombs ready to explode have anything to do with it? How about rounding up those "dis-affected underclass of young Muslims" and send them back home before they explode into violence?
You are demanding the westerners to use “Judeo-Christian-Islamic” term when they refer to their civilization. Shouldn’t you first go back to your own country of birth and demand that the Jews and Christians be recognized as humans before making such an outlandish demand? You have come to the West and despise everything the western civilization stands for. All you dream of is to destroy it and establish your Islamic intolerant way of life. And now you have the audacity to demand that Islam be recognized as a contributor to this civilization? What has been the contribution of Islam to the western civilization?
You claim that “Islamic values are not only compatible with the western values they are almost identical.” Do the Westerners practice polygamy, wife-beating, stoning, hand-chopping, flogging, beheading, clitoridectomy or honor-killing? What is it that you find identical between the western civilization and the Islamic barbarity? Is democracy an Islamic value adopted by the Westerners? Is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights an Islamic concept?
You say “Western culture is in fact based on Muslim culture”. Sir, Islam does not have a culture. What you mistake as Islamic culture is the culture of the civilized countries that Islam subdued. That culture is destroyed now. Is there any reference to Algebra, Chemistry, Astronomy, architecture, Medicine or philosophy in the Quran? Does Islam encourage poetry, sculpture, painting, dance or music? These are the foundations of any culture and Islam has nothing to do with them. Many of the exponents of these sciences and arts were apostates. The terrorism however, is very Islamic. Quran is full of verses that advocate murder, decapitation, genocide and terror. So you can say "Islamic terrorism" but you can't say "Islamic culture".
Finally you said one thing that I wholeheartedly agree and that is “read the Quran”. I did, and I left Islam after that. I urge everyone to read that book, as you said, with open mind. No one can write a book more damaging to Islam than the Quran. All we need to discredit Islam is to quote the Quran and the Hadith.
In the interest of humanity, I urge both Muslims and non-Muslims to read the Quran. Discover for yourself the stupidity of this book and feel its violence. Then I ask everyone not to remain indifferent. Muslims; please leave Islam. If you don’t like what you see, if you are not a terrorist yourself and do not support it, then leave Islam. Islam is a cult of terror. Muhammad was not a prophet. He was a terrorist and a psychopath no better than Hitler. You owe this mad man nothing. Just leave Islam and don't be a fool. Don't let the ghost of a psychopath control you with his fables or hell and God's punishment. God will not punish you for using your brain. God does not prize fools either. That man lied. If you are truly a good person, you have no reason to call yourself a Muslim. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Just as a member of the Nazi party can’t say he is not a racist, you can’t be innocent while you support a cult of terror such as Islam. If you are not a racist, why join the Nazi party? If you are not a terrorist why call yourself a Muslim?
If you are a non-Muslim I urge you also to read the Quran. It won’t take you long to see the violence and hate that emanates from that book. Once you come to see that Islam is not a religion but a dangerous lie, then stop being polite about it lest you hurt the Muslims' sensibilities. Be truthful! Call a spade a spade. Do not sacrifice the truth at the altars of political correctness. Muslims need to be jolted to reality. Let them feel the heat. They have been too comfortable for too long. They must end this complacency. They must be forced to go back to their “holy” book and rethink about their belief. Once they come to know the real “pure” Islam, most of them will leave this cult. Then it would be easy to see who is a terrorist. This will also weaken the terrorists. Where do you think the terrorists get their unlimited supply of new recruits? The terrorists are these very average Muslims who heed to the call of Muhammad and rise to fight the disbelievers. Q.8:65,
Islam is not a religion based on logics or reason. It is based on lies and on hypes. When the hype is busted, Islam will disappear, like puncturing a balloon with a needle.
The exodus has already begun. Everyday more and more Muslims are learning the bitter truth about Islam and are leaving it. When this number reaches a critical mass, the whole edifice of Islam will crumble under its own weight. It will happen at once and it will happen in our own lifetime. Where did communism go? What happened to Nazism? Islam will go the same way. Do not be daunted by the big number of Muslims. Most of them are our future allies in this battle of good vs. evil. Islam is like a giant edifice built on shallow foundations of lies. No matter how big it may be, it will come down at once. We are not taking it apart brick by brick, like the reformists want to do. That would take another thousand years if ever possible. We are dynamiting its foundation. We are showing Muhammad was a psychopath, a liar and a narcissist. Once that is established, there would be nothing left of Islam.
You can help by being truthful. Do not be an appeaser and do not lie so as to not hurt your Muslim friends' feelings. Damn with their feelings; let us save the world, their lives, your life and everybody else's.
And you Mr. Iftikhar Ahmad; If you call this Islamophobia, you aint seen nothing yet!
An invitation was sent to Mr. Iftikhar Ahmad to join the discussion and defend his position. We hope that he will accept our invitation, unless he feels comfortable to haul only where there is no one disagreeing with him.
A note to the students of Mr. Iftikhar Ahmad:
Please remind Mr. Ahmad to respond to this message and discuss this matter with your classmates. The renaissance of Muslim world depends on the Muslim youth.

Well, well, well!!!
A word of advice from an ‘insane’ person to Ali Sina :
If you want your message to get across, why do you do so like a fanatic???!!!! I think the way you propounded your humble thoughts is no better than the way ‘fanatic’ Muslims propound theirs. HA! You abuse our religion. The joke’s on you. Ironically, it only reflects your intolerance and prejudiced nature.
“You accuse Jew and Christian scholars of misrepresenting Islam. I am neither Jew nor Christian. Yet I declare that they are not misrepresenting Islam. I read the Quran, the Hadith and enough of the history of Islam to know Islam is not a religion but a dangerous cult, created by a controlling and sadistic cult leader. I have proven this point without a shadow of doubt. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong and I will remove this site with an apology. This challenge is four years old and I am still waiting.”
Listen dude, your challenge can be easily accepted and won too by any Muslim. But the thing is , it will happen only IF you step out of your narrow zone of fanatic thinking. Oops, was that insulting? I think that people who hurl criticism at others should be well prepared to face criticisms upon themselves from others, manifold. If you have proven that Islam is not a religion but a dangerous cult, created by a controlling and sadistic cult leader, then it is in the manner of giving emphasis on some aspects of Islam you have misinterpreted and totally ignoring the truth about Islam teaching tolerance, kindness, fair play. Why do you look at the corrupt Muslims? I am sure there are many excellent true Muslims in the world. Maybe you never met any because of your perverse nature. If Christians are “lecherous treacherous kindles villains”, (I took that line from Hamlet), I won’t blame that on Christianity. Your Hitler was also insane. Should I then, blame his religion for it? I can accept your stupid challenge, but only after you accept all the aspects of Islam. Do you find kindness, justice, tolerance as despicable virtues? Do you think that Muslims should keep sitting on their hands when your Christian and Jewish brothers are destroying their homes and torturing them? If you do, then there is no point in pursuing this discussion further.
“Are you trying to rewrite the history? Where do you think these “pure” Islamists get their inspiration to bomb, behead and murder innocent people? Isn’t it all in the examples set by Muhammad and his explicit instructions in the Quran?”
Ahahahaha!!! Wait before I wipe the tears off my eyes from laughing so much. Hey! Hey! Hey! Wake up, didn’t you say you read the Quran and the Hadith? Well, do you CHOOSE to ignore the fact that Hadhrat Muhammad (SallAllaho‘alaihewassallam) ordered explicitly to the Sahaba karam (RaziAllah ‘Alaihe) Not to attack the women and children in fighting? (And that fighting too, when things get out of hand; when non-Muslims keep on oppressing Muslims. That is Jihad). Or do you possess an extremely weak memory? I have never found such an example in any other religion.
Grow up. Face the music. As far as your blame on the fanatical Muslims is concerned, yes, we are ready to take the blame. As far as your blame on Quraan and our dear Prophet is concerned, there you have stepped out of your boundary. You have lost all your chances of being taken seriously.
You can become a good propagandist, if you already aren’t. however, it takes people like George Orwell and Bernard Shaw to argue effectively and reasonably. Follow the example of your own predecessors before stepping into such a discussion. O I forgot; you said:
“ people in the West do not care anymore about Christianity, crusades and what happened 900 or 400 years ago. Unlike Muslims who are stuck in the past, they are living in the 21st century and they have their own concerns.”
Their own concerns? No roots. Start of chaos.
You also said, ok, ‘wrote’ then, that:
“Is there any reference to Algebra, Chemistry, Astronomy, architecture, Medicine or philosophy in the Quran? Does Islam encourage poetry, sculpture, painting, dance or music? These are the foundations of any culture and Islam has nothing to do with them. Many of the exponents of these sciences and arts were apostates. The terrorism however, is very Islamic. Quran is full of verses that advocate murder, decapitation, genocide and terror. So you can say "Islamic terrorism" but you can't say "Islamic culture".”
Sigh! Will your narrow-mindedness never end? Duhh! Correct me if I’m wrong, but do you mean to say that any nation that doesn’t sculpt, dance, paint doesn’t have any culture?? Hmmm, that’s news to me. I never thought such an absurd and ridiculous definition of culture existed.
“Finally you said one thing that I wholeheartedly agree and that is “read the Quran”. I did, and I left Islam after that. I urge everyone to read that book, as you said, with open mind. No one can write a book more damaging to Islam than the Quran. All we need to discredit Islam is to quote the Quran and the Hadith.”
Uh oh! Red alert! Red alert! Stepping onto dangerous zone. Soooo, that explains all. I guess I don’t need to argue any further. Sadly, when the word of dear Allah didn’t reach your heart, I cannot hope that mine will. But still, may Allah forgive you and help you get back on the track. I am sorry, but I must tell you that you have made a great error. Please don’t resort to such desperate measures that might lead to immense despair on the Day of Judgment. I know you are irked by all that I have wrote, especially the previous lines. But I can tell you, it is something of a satisfaction to tell someone that something is going to happen later, and when it does one feels like, I told you so! But I fervently hope that will not happen. May Allah forgive me and you and everybody.
Nice of you to recommend the Quran to everyone. You have done something intending the opposite, but I am sure when people do read the Holy Quraan, they will realize the weightlessness of your words. I would like to further advise them to read it without being prejudiced in the first place. I have heard that Christians are far removed from prejudice. Lets see what happens when they read the Quraan with an open mind.
Did you know that many non-Muslims converted to Islam after reading salman rushdie’s ‘satanic verses’? just as I am sure many Muslims will feel a revival and deepening of their faith in Islam after reading your childish comments. Ironical, isn’t it? Yet delightfully ironical. I feel refreshed already, and have put up an appeal to Allah in your case. Not in your favor, but strongly in favor of justice. I have asked Allah to guide you, or to show you the error of your ways. You asked for it.
You have used derogatory words for our dearest prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho‘alaihewassallam). An extremely wrong move. Allah has told the believers not to revile even the idols that idolaters worship. And still you have the outrageous audacity to call Islam a dangerous cult? Bah! Humbug!
I am sure that even the nice, reasonable Christians would condemn the way in which you have reviled Islam .
I can bet that you are not happy. I can bet that a true Muslim can always remain contented and happy. Sounds far-fetched? Yeah, it would, to someone like you.
I can sense the hatred in your breast. I can only wish you best of luck. And you can say whatever you want to me. I don’t care to heed to childish nonsense from people like you.
Unless your argument is really strong and reasonably rather than fanatically presented, I will automatically forget all you have said. I think that is the case already. Wha…? Ali Si who…? He said what? Don’t remember.
I don’t care if my opinion matters to you or not. I am just little old me . Yes, I also need polishing up on my communication skills. So my rhetoric is also unimpressive and childish. Never mind, but lets both try to grow up and become more reasonable.
Watch your steps. You are on a highly dangerous landmine.

|Message ||Hi Liloldme
You can find Dr. Sina in his website www.faithfreedom.org
He is making quite an impact in the way the non-Muslims see Islam. His site is visited by over 100,000 people every month. Why don’t you take him on and debate with him?
He won’t debate with just anyone. He says to be to busy to respond to all those who write to him. But if you introduce yourself and tell him who you are, he will accept your challenge. He has also promised to remove his site and stop his anti Islam campaign if he is defeated.
It would be nice to see you battle with him. But a word of caveat before you take him on: He is good… very good. So I suggest you read several of his articles or even read the debates he already had with other Muslims before challenging him. If you don’t know your stuff, he’ll make you minced meat in no time.
I look forward to read your debate with Sina in his site.

|Message ||Dear Sir/Ma,
My name is Dase a Black of African Descent. I got attracted to you article.
You may be wondering why I am interested in the issue, I will tell you because my country has fallen for such and has been deceived which had led to many people being killed (mostly Christians) however I think the media is always against the Christian and because of the fact that Christianity is associated with persecution without much resistance on the Christians side. I will give you some verses in the religious books of the Muslims just to show you that proper knowledge about the Islamic religions needs to be known.
Also, I will like you to know that I am not a RACIST, neither do I HATE anybody or any religion but by the time I give you some verses in the Koran, hadiths etc, you shall know without any reasonable doubt who is correct.
In Islam, according to the koran, hadiths etc, there is nothing like equal rights for the women, death is pronounced for the Jews, buddists, atheist, Christians etc and they are refered to as infidels. Also anybody from other religion is not accepted as being equal to a muslim in Islam etc. All these I presume contradicts most culture.
What the Koran says about:
Qur’an 5:17 “Verily they are disbelievers and infidels who say, ‘The Messiah, son of Mary, is God.’”
Qur’an 5:72 “They are surely infidels who blaspheme and say: ‘God is Christ, the Messiah, the son of Mary.’ But the Messiah only said: ‘O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’”
Qur’an 88:1 “Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring.”
Qur’an 9:29 “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, who do not forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, or acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam), (even if they are) People of the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission, feeling themselves subdued and brought low.” [Another translation says:] “pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection.”
Ishaq:552 “The Quraysh had put pictures in the Ka’aba including two of Jesus and one of Mary. Muhammad ordered that the pictures should be erased.”
Qur’an 5:14 “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We made a covenant, but they forgot and abandoned a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, stirred up enmity and hatred among them to the Day of Doom. Soon will Allah show them the handiwork they have done.”
Qur’an 5:35 “Believers, fear Allah and seek the way to approach Him, striving hard, fighting Jihad with all your might in His Cause that you may be successful. As for the disbelievers [previously defined as Christians], if they had everything on earth, two times over, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Doom, it would never be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful torment. They will desire to get out of the fire, but they shall not be released from it. They shall have an everlasting torture.”
Qur’an 3:61 “If anyone disputes with you about Jesus being divine, flee them and pray that Allah will curse them.”
Qur’an 3:118 “O you who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, and Christians). They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin. Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths. What their hearts conceal is far worse. When they are alone, they bite off the very tips of their fingers at you in their rage. Say unto them: ‘Perish in your rage.’”
Qur’an 4:48 “Allah forgives not that partners [Christ as God] should be set up with Him; but He forgives anything else, to whom He please; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin most heinous.”
Qur’an 4:54 “Are they jealous and envious what Allah has given them of his bounty? But We had already given the house of Abraham the Book, and conferred upon them a grand kingdom. Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him. And Hell is sufficient for their burning. Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire. As often as their skin is burnt and singed, roasted through, We shall change it for fresh skin, so that they may go on tasting the torment.”
Here what Mohammed the founder of Islam says:
Ishaq:243 “I heard the Apostle say: ‘Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!’ He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks…. Allah sent down concerning him: ‘To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom.” [9:61] “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.’”
Ishaq:144 “A rock was put on a slave’s chest. When Abu Bakr complained, they said, ‘You are the one who corrupted him, so save him from his plight.’ I will do so,’ said Bakr. ‘I have a black slave, tougher and stronger than Bilal, who is a heathen. I will exchange him. The transaction was carried out.”
Tabari II:11 “Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.”
Tabari II:21 “Ham [Africans] begat all those who are black and curly-haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair. Noah prayed that the hair of Ham’s descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem’s, the latter would enslave them.”
Tabari IX:69 “Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. WE FIGHT PEOPLE UNTIL THEY BELIEVE IN ALLAH. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah’s Cause. KILLING HIM IS A SMALL MATTER TO US.”
Bukhari: V9B89N256 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he is a black African slave whose head looks like a RAISIN.’”
Ishaq:405 “It is your folly to fight the Apostle, for Allah’s army is bound to disgrace you. We brought them to the pit. Hell was their meeting place. We collected them there, black slaves, men of no descent.
Ishaq:374 “The black troops and slaves of the Meccans cried out and the Muslims replied, ‘Allah destroy your sight, you impious rascals.’”
Bukhari:V4B52N137 “The Prophet said, ‘Let the negro slave of Dinar perish. And if he is pierced with a thorn, let him not find anyone to take it out for him.... If he [the black slave] asks for anything it shall not be granted, and if he needs intercession [to get into paradise], his intercession will be denied.’”

Tabari I:280 “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world MENSTRUATE AND ARE STUPID.”

The Prophet observed: ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.’”

We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace.”
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.”
Ishaq:326 “Prophet exhort the believers to fight. If there are twenty good fighters they will defeat two hundred for they are a senseless people. They do not fight with good intentions nor for truth.”

Tabari IX:69 “Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.”
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.

Abu Bakr said: ‘I will definitely fight against anyone who stops paying the Zakat tax, for it is an obligation.

The Messenger said: ‘Did he profess “There is no god but Allah,” and even then you killed him?’ I said: ‘He made a profession out of the fear of the weapon I was threatening him with.’ The Prophet said: ‘Did you tear out his heart in order to find out whether it had professed truly or not?’”

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.

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 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.

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.

This is My warning…they shall taste the torment of Fire.”

With our loud-voiced army, the Apostle’s squadron advanced into the fray.”
Ishaq:580 “Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle’s order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior’s blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas over her mutilated husband. ’Tis Allah, not man we seek to please.”

[A Ghazwa is an Islamic Invasion in Allah’s Cause consisting of an army unit led by the Prophet himself.] He left Sa’d in command of Medina. On this raid his banner was carried by Hamzah. He stayed out for fifteen days and then returned to Medina. The Messenger went on a Ghazwa at the head of two hundred of his companions in October, 623 and reached Buwat. His intention was to intercept a Quraysh caravan with a hundred men and twenty-five hundred camels.”
Ishaq:286 “Meanwhile the Apostle sent Sa’d on the raid of Abu Waqqas. The Prophet only stayed a few nights in Medina before raiding Ushayra and then Kurz.”
Bukhari:V5B57N51 “The Apostle said, ‘Tomorrow I will give the flag to a man whose leadership Allah will use to grant a Muslim victory.”
Bukhari:V5B59N569 “I fought in seven Ghazwat battles along with the Prophet and fought in nine Maghazi raids in armies dispatched by the Prophet.”
Bukhari:V5B57N74 “I heard Sa’d saying, ‘I was the first Arab to shoot an arrow in Allah’s Cause.’”
Bukhari:V5B59N401 “Allah’s Wrath became severe on anyone the Prophet killed in Allah’s Cause.”
Bukhari:V5B59N456 “Muhammad led the Fear Prayer [Allahu Akbar!] with one batch of his army while the other (batch) faced the enemy.”
Bukhari:V5B59N440 “Allah’s Apostle used to say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone because He honored His Warriors and made His Messenger victorious. He defeated the clans; so there is nothing left.’”
Ishaq:287 “The Muslim raiders consulted one another concerning them. One of the Muslims said, ‘By Allah, if we leave these people alone, they will get into the sacred territory and will be safely out of our reach. If we kill them we will have killed in the sacred month.’” Tabari VII:19 “They hesitated and were afraid to advance, but then they plucked up courage and agreed to kill as many as they could and to seize what they had with them. Waqid shot an arrow at Amr and killed him. Uthman and al-Hakam surrendered. Then Waqid and his companions took the caravan and the captives back to Allah’s Apostle in Medina. This was the first booty taken by the Companions of Muhammad.”
Ishaq:289 “Our lances drank of Amr’s blood and lit the flame of war.” Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:287 “Abd Allah told his Companions, ‘A fifth of the booty we have taken belongs to the Apostle.’ This was before Allah made surrendering a fifth of the booty taken a requirement.”
Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:288 “The Quraysh said, ‘Muhammad and his Companions have violated the sacred month, shed blood, seized property, and taken men captive.’ The polytheists spread lying slander concerning him, saying, ‘Muhammad claims that he is following obedience to Allah, yet he is the first to violate the holy month and to kill our people.’”
Ishaq:288 “When the Qur’an passage concerning this matter was revealed, and Allah relieved Muslims from their fear and anxiety, Muhammad took possession of the caravan and prisoners. The Quraysh sent him a ransom and the Prophet released the prisoners on payment. When the Qur’an authorization came down to Muhammad, Abd Allah and his Companions were relieved and they became anxious for an additional reward. They said, ‘Will this raid be counted as part of the reward promised to Muslim combatants?’ So Allah sent down this Qur’an: ‘Those who believe and have fought in Allah’s Cause may receive Allah’s mercy.’ Allah made the booty permissible. He divided the loot, awarding four-fifths to the men He had allowed to take it. He gave one-fifth to His Apostle.”
Ishaq:288 “Allah divided the booty stolen from the first caravan after he made spoils permissible. He gave four-fifths to those He had allowed to take it and one-fifth to His Apostle.”
Tabari VII:29/Ishaq:289 “The Apostle heard that Abu Sufyan [a Meccan merchant] was coming from Syria with a large caravan containing their money and their merchandise. He was accompanied by only thirty men.” Ishaq:289 “Muhammad summoned the Muslims and said, ‘This is the Quraysh caravan containing their property. Go out and attack it. Perhaps Allah will give it to us as prey.”
Tabari VII:29 “Abu Sufyan and the horsemen of the Quraysh were returning from Syria following the coastal road. When Allah’s Apostle heard about them he called his companions together and told them of the wealth they had with them and the fewness of their numbers. The Muslims set out with no other object than Sufyan and the men with him. They did not think that this raid would be anything other than easy booty.”
Bukhari:V5B59N702 “Allah did not admonish anyone who had not participated in the Ghazwa [raid] of Badr, for in fact, Allah’s Apostle had only gone out in search of the Quraysh caravan so that he could rob it. But Allah arranged for the Muslims and their enemy to meet by surprise. I was at the Aqaba pledge with Allah’s Apostle when we gave our lives in submission, but the Badr battle is more popular amongst the people. I was never stronger or wealthier than I was when I followed the Prophet on a Ghazwa.’”
Tabari VII:29 “They did not suppose that there would be a great battle. Concerning this Allah revealed a Qur’an: Qur’an 8:7 ‘Behold! Allah promised you that one of the two parties would be yours. You wished for the unarmed one, but Allah willed to justify His truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the unbelievers.’”
Tabari VII:29 “When Abu Sufyan heard that Muhammad’s Companions were on their way to intercept his caravan, he sent a message to the Quraysh. ‘Muhammad is going to attack our caravan, so protect your merchandise.’ When the Quraysh heard this, the people of Mecca hastened to defend their property and protect their men as they were told Muhammad was lying in wait for them.” Ishaq:290 “Some Meccans got up to circumambulate the Ka’aba…. Sitting around the mosque, they wondered why they had allowed this evil rascal to attack their men.”
Ishaq:292 “Setting out in Ramadhan, Muhammad was preceded by two black flags. His companions had seventy camels.” Tabari VII:38 “I have been informed by authorities that Muhammad set out on 3 Ramadhan at the head of 310 of his companions. The war banner of the Messenger was carried by Ali. The banner of the Ansar was carried by Sa’d.”
Ishaq:293/Tabari VII:30 “The prophet marched forward and spent the night near Badr with his Companions. While the Prophet was standing in prayer [asking Allah to help him steal] some Quraysh water-carriers came to the well. Among these was a black slave. Muhammad’s men seized him and brought him to the Messenger’s bivouac. They ordered him to salute Allah’s Apostle. Then they questioned him about Abu Sufyan. When the slave began to tell them about the protecting force, it was unwelcome news, for the only object of their raid was the caravan.” Tabari VII:30 “Meanwhile the Prophet was praying, bowing and prostrating himself, and also seeing and hearing the treatment of the slave. They beat him severely and continued to interrogate him but they found that he had no knowledge of what they were looking for.”
Ishaq:294 “The Apostle was afraid the Ansar would not feel obliged to help him fight without the enemy being the aggressor and attacking in Medina. Sa’d said, ‘We hear and obey. We are experienced in war, trustworthy in combat. Allah will let us show you something that will bring you joy. The Apostle was delighted at Sa’d’s words which greatly encouraged him. Muhammad shouted, ‘It is as if I see the enemy lying prostrate.’”
Tabari VII:32 “When the Quraysh advanced, Muhammad threw dust in the direction of their faces, and Allah put them to flight.… The Meccan [merchant] force and the Prophet’s [pirates] met and Allah gave victory to His Messenger, shamed the unbelievers, and satisfied the Muslims’ thirst for revenge.” Ishaq:297 “When the Apostle saw them he cried, ‘Allah, they called me a liar. Destroy them this morning.’”
Bukhari:V5B59N330/Ishaq:300 “Here is Gabriel holding the rein of a horse and leading the charge. He is equipped with his weapons and ready for the battle. There is dust upon his front teeth.” Bukhari:V5B59N327 “Gabriel came to the Prophet and said, ‘How do you view the warriors of Badr?’ The Prophet said, ‘I see the fighters as the best Muslims.’ On that, Gabriel said, ‘And so are the Angels who are participating in the Badr battle.’”
Tabari VII:55 “Mihaja, the mawla [slave] of Umar [the future Caliph] was struck by an arrow and killed. He was the first Muslim to die.”
Tabari VII:55 “Allah’s Messenger went out to his men and incited them to fight. He promised, ‘Every man may keep all the booty he takes.’ Then Muhammad said, ‘By Allah, if any man fights today and is killed fighting aggressively, going forward and not retreating, Allah will cause him to enter Paradise.’ Umayr, who was holding some dates in his hand and eating them, said, ‘Fine, fine. This is excellent! Nothing stands between me and my entering Paradise except to be killed by these people!’ He threw down the dates, seized his sword, and fought until he was slain.”
Tabari VII:56 “‘Messenger of Allah, what makes the Lord laugh with joy at his servant?’ He replied, ‘When he plunges his hand into the midst of an enemy without armor.’ So Auf took off the coat of mail he was wearing and threw it away. Then he took his sword and fought the enemy until he was killed.”
Ishaq:301 “Muhammad picked up a handful of pebbles and faced the Quraysh. He shouted, ‘May their faces be deformed!’ He threw the pebbles at them and ordered his companions to attack. The foe was routed. Allah killed Quraysh chiefs and caused many of their nobles to be taken captive. While the Muslims were taking prisoners, the Messenger was in his hut.”
Bukhari:V5B59N290 “The Prophet said, ‘The believers who failed to join the Ghazwa of Badr and those who took part in it are not equal in reward.”
Bukhari:V5B59N333 “Az-Zubair said, ‘I attacked him with my spear and pierced his eye. I put my foot over his body to pull the weapon out, but even then I had to use great force. Later on Allah’s Apostle asked me for that spear and I gave it to him.’”
Ishaq:301 “As the Muslims were laying their hands on as many prisoners as they could catch, the Prophet, saw disapproval in the face of Sa’d. He said, ‘Why are you upset by the taking of captives?’ Sa’d replied, ‘This was the first defeat inflicted by Allah on the infidels. Slaughtering the prisoners would have been more pleasing to me than sparing them.’”
Tabari VII:59 “On the day of Badr I passed Umayyah as he was standing with his son Ali, holding his hand. I had with me some coats of mail which I had taken as plunder. Umayyah said, ‘Abd al-Ilah, would you like to take me as a prisoner? I will be more valuable to you as a captive to be ransomed than the coats of mail that you are carrying.’ I said, ‘Yes. Come here then.’ I flung away the armor and bound Umayyah and his son Ali, taking them with me. Muslims encircled us. Then they restrained us physically. One of the Muslims drew his sword and struck Ali in the leg, severing it so that he fell down. Umayyah gave a scream the like of which I have never heard. I said, ‘Save yourself, for there is no escape for your son. By Allah, I cannot save him from these men.’ Then the Muslims hacked Ali to pieces. Abd al-Rahman used to say, ‘May Allah have mercy on Bial [a slave turned Muslim marauder]! I lost my coats of mail, and he deprived me of my captives.’”
Bukhari:V5B59N297 “The Prophet faced the Ka’aba and invoked evil on the Quraysh people.”
Bukhari: V5B59N397 “Allah’s Apostle raised his head after bowing the first Rak’a of the morning prayer. He said, ‘O Allah! Curse so-and-so and so-and-so.’ After he had invoked evil upon them, Allah revealed: ‘Your Lord will send thousands of angels riding upon chargers sweeping down as a form of good tidings to reassure you that victory comes from Him. He will cut off parts of the unbelievers, overthrow them, and turn them back in frustration. For Allah is forgiving and kind.’” [3:124]
Ishaq:303 “A cousin and I mounted a hill from which we could overlook Badr and see who would be defeated, so that we could join in the plundering afterwards. I was pursuing one of the Meccan polytheists in order to smite him, when his head suddenly fell off before my sword touched him. Then I knew that someone other than I had killed him.”
Tabari VII:61 “When the Prophet had finished with his enemy, he gave orders that Abu Jahl should be found among the dead. He said, ‘O Allah, do not let him escape!’ The first man who encountered Abu Jahl yelled out and I made him my mark. When he was within my reach, I attacked him and struck him a blow which severed his foot and half his leg. By Allah, when it flew off I could only compare it to a date-stone which flies out of a crusher when it is struck. Then his son hit me on the shoulder and cut off my arm. It dangled at my side from a piece of skin. The fighting prevented me from reaching him after that. I fought the whole day, dragging my arm behind me. When it began to hurt me, I put my foot on it and stood until I pulled it off.’” Ishaq:304 “Abd Allah bin Mas’ud said, ‘I found Abu Jahl in the throws of death. I put my foot on his neck because he had grabbed me once at Mecca and had hurt me. Then I said, Has Allah disgraced you and put you to shame, O enemy of Allah?’ ‘In what way has he disgraced me?’ he asked. ‘Am I anything more important than a man whom you have killed?’” Bukhari:V5B59N298 “Abu Jahl said, ‘You should not be proud that you have killed me.’”
Ishaq:304/Tabari VII:62 “I cut off Abu Jahl’s head and brought it to the Messenger. ‘O Allah’s Prophet, this is the head of the enemy of Allah.’ Muhammad said, ‘Praise be to Allah.’”
Ishaq:305 “Ukkasha fought until he broke his sword. He came to the Apostle who gave him a wooden cudgel telling him to fight with that. He brandished it and it became a brilliant weapon. Allah gave him victory while he wielded it. He took that weapon with him to every raid he fought with Allah’s Apostle until he was killed in the rebellion. These were his dying words: ‘What do you think about when you kill people? Are these not men just because they are not Muslims?’”
Ishaq:315 “It was so criminal, men could hardly imagine it. Muhammad was ennobled because of the bloody fighting. I swear we shall never lack soldiers, nor army leaders. Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. We will bring upon the infidels the fate of the Ad and Jurhum. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!”
Ishaq:310 “A Meccan said, ‘As soon as we were confronted by the raiding party, we turned our backs and they started killing and capturing us at their pleasure. Some of our men turned tail humiliated. Allah smote some of us with pustules from which we died.’” Ishaq:311 “When the Quraysh began to bewail their dead, consumed in sorrow, one said, ‘Do not do this for Muhammad and his companions will rejoice over our misfortune.’”
Ishaq:340 “Surely Badr was one of the world’s great wonders. The roads to death are plain to see. Disobedience causes a people to perish. They became death’s pawns. We had sought their caravan, nothing else. But they came to us and there was no way out. So we thrust our shafts and swung our swords severing their heads. Our swords glittered as they killed. The banner of error was held by Satan. He betrayed the evil ones, those prone to treachery. He led them to death crying, ‘Fear Allah. He is invincible!’ On that day a thousand spirits were mustered on excited white stallions. Allah’s army fought with us. Under our banner, Gabriel attacked and killed them.”
Ishaq:341 “Allah favored His Apostle and humiliated the unbelievers. They were put to shame in captivity and death. The Apostle’s victory was glorious. Its message is plain for all to see. The Lord brought repeated calamities upon the pagans, bringing them under the Apostle’s power. Allah’s angry army smote them with their trusty swords. Many a lusty youngster left the enemy lying prone. Their women wept with burning throats for the dead were lying everywhere. But now they are all in Hell.”
Ishaq:342 “I wonder at foolish men like these who sing frivolously and vainly of the slain at Badr. This was nothing more than an impious and odious crime. Men fought against their brothers, fathers, and sons. Any with discernment and understanding recognize the wrong that was done here.”
Ishaq:344 “I wonder at Allah’s deed. None can defeat Him. Evil ever leads to death. We unsheathed our swords and testified to the unity of Allah, and we proved that His Apostle brought truth. We smote them and they scattered. The impious met death. They became fuel for Hell. All who aren’t Muslims must go there. It will consume them while the Stoker [Allah] increases the heat. They had called Allah’s Apostle a liar. They claimed, ‘You are nothing but a sorcerer.’ So Allah destroyed them.”
Ishaq:348 “They retreated in all directions. They rejected the Qur’an and called Muhammad a liar. But Allah cursed them to make his religion and Apostle victorious. They lay still in death. Their throats were severed. Their foreheads embraced the dust. Their nostrils were defiled with filth. Many a noble, generous man we slew this day. We left them as meat for the hyenas. And later, they shall burn in the fires of Hell.”
Ishaq:349 “The battle will tell the world about us. Distant men will heed our warning. The infidels may cut off my leg, yet I am a Muslim. I will exchange my life for one with virgins fashioned like the most beautiful statues.”
Ishaq:357 “Their leaders were left prostrate. Their heads were sliced off like melons. Many an adversary have I left on the ground to rise in pain, broken and plucked. When the battle was joined I dealt them a vicious blow. Their arteries cried aloud, their blood flowed.”
Ishaq:308 “Muhammad halted on a sandhill and divided the booty Allah had given him. They congratulated him on the victory Allah had granted. But one of the warriors replied, ‘What are you congratulating us about? We only met some bald old women like the sacrificial camels who are hobbled, and we slaughtered them!’ The Apostle smiled because he knew that description fit .”
Tabari VII:81 “The next day I went to the Prophet. He was sitting with Abu Bakr, and they were weeping. I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, tell me, what has made you weep? If I find cause to weep, I will weep with you, and if not, I will pretend to weep because you are weeping.’ The Prophet said, ‘It is because of the taking of ransoms. It was laid before me that I should punish them instead.’ Allah revealed: ‘It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land.’ After that Allah made booty lawful for them.”
Tabari VII:98 “The Messenger ordered Zayd [the prophet’s former slave turned adoptive son] out on a raid in which he captured a Quraysh caravan led by Abu Sufyan at a watering place in Najd.… A number of their merchants set out with a large amount of silver since this was the main part of their merchandise. They hired a man to guide them along this route. Zayd captured the caravan and its goods but was unable to capture the men. He brought the caravan to the Prophet.” [If this isn’t piracy and terror the words need to be redefined.]
Tabari VII:98 “The reason for this expedition was the Quraysh said, ‘Muhammad has damaged our trade, and sits astride our road. If we stay in Mecca we will consume our capital.’ …The news of the caravan reached the Prophet, as did the information that it contained much wealth and silver vessels. Zayd therefore intercepted it and made himself master of their caravan. The fifth (khums) was twenty thousand dirhams; Allah’s Apostle took it and divided the other four fifths among the members of the raiding party. Furat was taken captive. They said to him. ‘If you accept Islam the Messenger will not kill you.’”
Qur’an 3:150 “Soon We shall strike terror into the hearts of the Infidels, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be in the Fire!”
Ishaq:395 “Muslims, if you listen to the unbelievers you will retreat from the enemy and become losers. Ask Allah for victory and do not retreat, withdrawing from His religion. ‘We will terrorize those who disbelieve. In that way I will help you against them.’”
Qur’an 33:9 “O ye who believe! Remember the Grace of Allah, on you, when there came down an army. But We sent against them a hurricane and forces that ye saw not. Behold! They came on you from above you and from below you, and behold, the eyes became dim and the hearts gaped up to the throats, stupefied with terror, and ye imagined various vain thoughts about Allah!”
Ishaq:461 “Muhammad besieged them for twenty-five nights. When the siege became too severe for them, Allah terrorized them. Then they were told to submit.”

|Message ||If Britain was such an Islamophobic society, then they would have stopped immigration of muslims in UK long, long time ago.
Mr. Iftikhar Ahmed writes that "Through out the modern history, Muslims have contributed for the Renaissance of Western culture and society." But Muslims abhor Renaissance, Secularism, Humanism, Reason, Individualism, Human Rights, political freedom, the very essence of Renaissance. What happened?. Are you sure, muslims had anything to do with it? Which history books, the author reads? Can't be written by Muslims (Islamist or non-islamist) or even by non-muslims?
Mr. Iftikhar Ahmed also writes that "Islamic values are not only compatible with the western values they are almost identical.". If that is the case, then why there is a constant Clash between Islam (and Muslims) and the West (and even the rest of the world -- or non-islamic world)?. Muslims don't even get along with themselves. Are we forgetting Darfur? Did we forget brutal war between Iran and Iraq in 1980's?

|Message ||Before slandering Monica Ali's book, why not go back to school and develop some critical reading skills? Maybe then you'll be able to grasp the complexity of her work, "Brick Lane." Ali portrayed the immigrant struggle with such compassion, the very fact that you choose to berate her, of all people, shows your ignorance.
You are doing Muslims around the world a huge disservice. With your ignorance, you are encouraging the very prejudice you rail against. A shame, really.

If Britain was such an Islamophobic society, then they would have stopped immigration of muslims in UK long, long time ago. Not only that, they would have passed laws for kicking Muslims out of UK long, long time ago.
Let Iftikahr not underestimate 'liberal' UK; it is capable of committing the greatest atrocities mankind has ever known; and it can go back to committing those atrocities again any time. It is not only UK which is famous for those atrocities, but it is all of Europe.
It was English people who came to North America and who slaughtered native americans in US/Canada. Similarly, it were the Spanish who slaughtered natives in South America. Same is true of Portugese; and the French in French US (Louisiana Territory). Today, there are less natives in US/Canada than were 500 years ago when white europeans came to North America.
Europe is famous for its Fascist and Nazi ideology; they can easily revive them (immaterial that German laws prohibit nazi concepts; ideologies develop on their own, laws or no laws).
Mr Ifthikhar does not know what Islamophobia means. Europe will be really Islamophobic when they get rid of Islam from Europe. If muslims keep up with their current thinking in Europe, they may just do that. All, they have to do is to deny them jobs, credit, housing, business, public services, and discriminate covertly; and the muslim society in europe will collapse and will go back to muslim countries.
