Islam will rule: It is written — or is it?

Islam will rule: It Is Written – or is it? by Peter Burrows elburropete@gmail.com – 9/19/2021 

Devout Muslims are not surprised by our defeat in Afghanistan.  They see it as proof that Islam is destined to rule the world, something foretold many times in the Koran, every word of which is direct from God.   

My favorite example is verse 33 in chapter nine, which says God gave Muhammad the true religion, Islam, and directed Muhammad to make it prevail over all other religions, “howsoever those who associate others with Allah might detest it.” In other words, like it or not, you despicable infidels, Islam is going to rule the world. 

About now, some of you are thinking, “C’mon Burro, Afghanistan is hardly ‘the world.’” No, but it is an ominous defeat because it took them only 20 years. When the Muslims fought the Byzantine Empire, it took them 738 years to conquer Constantinople. That was 647 years ago and I notice the Muslims are still in charge there.  

It won’t take that long for America to fall. It took only 19 Mujahideen, warriors for Allah, to take down the Twin Towers, kill thousands and entice the Great Satan to invade Afghanistan, where we suffered thousands of casualties and left behind great piles of booty. Allah, the Great Deceiver, has turned the tables on us and now we are the ones being invaded by thousands of Mujahideen, a.k.a. refugees.  

They will join some four million other Muslims at over 3000 mosques, where they will pray for Islam to someday rule America, which shouldn’t take very long by Muslim standards.  There were just 1200 mosques in America at the time of their Twin Tower victory, and only two million Muslims.  If they continue to double every 20 years, they will reach a critical mass in less than a hundred years. Allahu Akbar! 

Allah has directed his followers, “the best of people ever raised up for mankind,” to wage a Holy War until His religion prevails, and Allah will help by casting “terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved.” (See verses 3:110 and 8:12 in the Holy Koran.)  The last revelation Allah gave to Muhammad leaves no doubt:  

“When comes the Help of Allah and Victory, And you see the People enter Allah’s Religion in crowds, Celebrate the Praises of your Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: for He is Oft Returning (in Grace and Mercy).” (Chapter 110, verbatim from the Yusuf Ali translation.)  

For many years, I thought Chapter 110 was simply meaningless platitudes, but Afghanistan has me trying to rethink it from a Muslim’s point of view.  For help, I consulted the Tafsir of Ibn Kathir. A Tafsir is a Koranic exegesis and the most respected is that of Ibn Kathir, a fourteenth-century Muslim scholar and jurist.  

Ibn Kathir confirmed Chapter 110 is the last revelation and, surprisingly, that the chapter is “equivalent to one fourth of the Qur’an,” which means I was wrong to think it was “meaningless platitudes.” In the context of the time, Chapter 110 was recognition of the massive conversion to Islam in the wake of Muhammad’s conquest of Mecca, and since the Koran is an eternal guide with no context, it is also Allah telling Muslims what will happen when Islam conquers the rest of the world.  

While that’s a very important message for Muslims, I was surprised at Ibn Kathir’s assertion that it was “equivalent to one-fourth of the Qur’an.” However, I was a helluva lot more surprised at what he reported Muhammad had said to another Muslim about Chapter 110: “Verily, the people have entered the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds.”  

There must be Muslim scholars who dispute the provenance of that quote, but the fact that it has survived for over 700 years in Islam’s most respected tafsir is a powerful endorsement. Since the Koran asserts that Muhammad and Allah were always on the same page, something obvious to non-Muslims since we think Muhammad and Allah were one and the same, it would appear that Muhammad had doubts about Islam’s eternal appeal. 

Ibn Kathir, understandably, doesn’t explore that possibility.  While I think Muhammad was a brilliant psychopath who drank his own Kool Ade with gusto, I also think he had moments of clarity, moments when the con man couldn’t con himself. This sounds like one of those moments.   

Hopefully, the Afghan victory will mark the beginning of just such an exodus from Islam, thanks to the Taliban.  Their eagerness to implement sharia law could prove Islam’s undoing.  Wishful thinking? Maybe. See my next article.              

Lesson Not Learned

Lesson Not Learned by Peter Burrows 9/7/21 elburropete@gmail.com  –

Since the end of the Civil War, there have been only two major attacks against our country that have taken place on our soil: Pearl Harbor, which cost 2400 lives, and 9-11, which cost 2900 lives. Both of those attacks were committed by fanatical adversaries who wished to destroy the United States.   

In hindsight, Pearl Harbor was the beginning of the end for the fledging Japanese empire. Will 9-11 mark the beginning of the end of the American Republic? The signs are ominous. 

Twenty years after we thought we had avenged 9-11 by destroying al Qaeda in Afghanistan, we have retreated from that country in ignominious defeat. It’s almost as if 9-11 was bait to lure us into a war the Muslims knew we couldn’t win.  

They know this because Muslims are commanded by Allah to wage war until the world is ruled by Islam, however long that takes. Afghanistan took only 20 years. The Muslim conquest of Constantinople took 718 years. As an unknown Muslim once said, “You’ve got the watches, we’ve got the time.”  

And they certainly do. For 1400 years Islam has been at war with the rest of the world with no end in sight. Until we wake up to that fact, every life lost in the 9-11 attack, every life lost in Afghanistan and everywhere else in the Mideast since 9-11, will be a life lost in vain.  

I’m afraid many more will be lost in vain because we’re allowing thousands of Afghan refugees to settle here.  Most of these are unvetted, but that should be a simple operation. Any refugee who plans to attend a Mosque should be routed to an Islamic country. 

I’m fine with EX-Muslims.  It’s the practicing Muslims who worry me, ones like Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who killed 13 and wounded 30 at Fort Hood in 2009; or the married Muslim couple who killed 14 and injured 22 in San Bernardino in 2015; or Omar Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 at the Pulse nightclub in Orland in 2016.   

Those are the most lethal attacks in the US since 9-11. There have been many other minor attacks, although if you were one of the 17 people who lost a limb in the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013, or if you knew one of the “only” three people killed in that attack, you might not think it so “minor.” Ditto for the eight wounded and three killed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station by a Saudi pilot-in-training in 2019.   

Worldwide, there have been over 40,000 lethal terrorist attacks since 9-11. Such attacks occur almost every day but rarely make it onto the nightly news. That would disturb the “Islam is peace” mantra and open the reporters to charges of Islamophobia and racism.    

Here’s the tally from last month: Attacks 25 – Killed 123 – Injured 151 – Suicide Blasts 0 – Countries 11 

Islam is the longest-lived, most deadly ideology of hatred in the history of humanity, yet the Southern Poverty Law Center protects the Religion of Islam by labelling ANTI-Islamic organizations as “Hate Groups.”  This is political correctness gone mad.  

Our failure to recognize Islam as our enemy is suicidal.   The threat that Islam poses has been hammered home time and time again, yet we have learned nothing.
