7 Points to Help John Kerry Defend Islam

by | Sep 15, 2014 | Israel & Jewish Roots

Secretary of State John Kerry announced that some of the new coalition partners will contribute to the war effort against the Islamic State by “demolishing the distortion of one of the world’s great peaceful religions,” referring to Islam. I want to do my part too! Here are some of the distortions of Islam:

1. Starting with Mr. Kerry’s assertion that Islam is one of the world’s great peaceful religions. Islam was birthed in blood and thrives on blood. Muhammad executed people. This is fact. Unlike most religions Islam grew in its early stages as a conquering imperialistic empire. It gobbled up lands all over the Middle East within its first 34 years. Since Israel became a nation 11 million Muslims have been violently killed. Israel has killed 0.3 percent of them, while 90 percent have been murdered by fellow Muslims. Islam is not a religion of peace but of blood.

2. Muhammad was an honorable, humble man. In truth, he was a murderous despot with an insatiable sexual appetite. While according to his revelations, a Muslim man could have up to four wives, Muhammad was allowed as many as he wanted, including sex slaves captured in battle (as ISIS does). In all, it is believed that the prophet had sexual relations with 66 women and girls. Yes, girls. His most infamous wife was the child prophetess Aisha, whom he wed at age 6, but mercifully waited until she was 9 to consummate the marriage.

The Nigerian Boko Haram terrorists who kidnapped nearly 300 young girls in order to convert them and force them into marriage and ISIS, which is doing the same in Iraq and Syria, are only following the example of Muhammad. Older Muslim men marrying children is common today. The five nations with the highest percentage of child brides all have a Muslim majority!

3. Islam respects other religions. Within an Islamic state, other religions like Judaism and Christianity are sometimes tolerated, provided that you pay a jizah, a special tax, and you do not offend Islam. Seeking to bring Muslims into your faith can be problematic. In Saudi Arabia it is illegal to seek to convert someone from Islam or to give out literature such as Bibles. One Filipino businessman was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death for leading several house churches. He was reluctantly set free due to international pressure.

4. Islam respects women. An imam teaches his subjects the correct way to beat your wife. The Quran allows anal sex, and the wife must be willing at all times. Women must be covered from head to toe. In paradise the man is promised 72 virgins. What is the woman promised? Young girls are often murdered in honor killings by relatives, while males are rarely murdered in such ways.

Islam is the most oppressive force on Earth regarding women. Just last week more than 3,000 women were taken captive by ISIS and have been forced into sexual slavery. There are brothels overseen by Muslim women to organize this. Fighters are allowed to abuse the women since they are not Muslim. Sadly this is not a distortion, as we already established that Muhammad had sex slaves.

“Muhammad had a multitude of slave girls and concubines with whom he had sex—sometimes on the very days in which they had watched their husbands and fathers die at the hands of his army.”

5. Sharia Law is harmless. In Gaza, Iran and Saudi Arabia, religious police called mutaween are given broad powers to enforce Sharia.

“They have the power to arrest unrelated males and females caught socializing, anyone engaged in homosexual behavior or prostitution; to enforce Islamic dress codes, and store closures during the prayer time.”

You might think great; they are against prostitution. Think again. A dear friend and her husband were arrested in Dubai. She was arrested for prostitution and he—for rape. They were married! They were forced to convert to Islam in jail and then released. They are both now evangelical Christians.

Dancing to western music, wearing western clothes, can invite a severe beating. In Gaza, Hamas police beat a teen to the point that he could not walk for three days, because he had gel in his hair. Converting to Christianity is a crime punishable by death. Iran has jailed more than one Christian pastor for leaving Islam.

Often just the suspicion of adultery can bring the death penalty—assuming you are a woman. Since males are permitted to have sex slaves, they are rarely executed. Those who are executed under Sharia are often killed in the most gruesome ways such as beheadings, stoning or being buried alive.

6. Islam is tolerant of gays. It is one thing to have a theological disagreement with homosexuality, however it is another to kill someone for it.

“In these countries, Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, the UAE and Yemen, homosexual activity carries the death penalty.”

Even in countries where it is legal, if family members find out, honor killings are considered morally justifiable as the courts turn a blind eye. There was no shortage of Hollywood elites like Russell Brand and Penelope Cruz, defending Hamas in the recent war with Israel. Yet these same Hollywood elites would be killed if they sought to establish legal same-sex marriages in Gaza.

7. Only a small segment of Muslims are radicalized. I recently read that only 7 percent of Muslims have been radicalized. Seemed like good news until I did the math. A total of 1.5 billion Muslims times .07 equals 105,000,000 million Muslims ready to murder, rape, pillage, and ultimately die for their cause. And this number is rapidly growing.

Then, when you realize that even so-called moderates from primitive, backward cultures are willing to kill their own daughters in honor killings, you realize that the number is much higher. Just because they are not joining ISIS or strapping on a suicide belt, doesn’t mean they do not embrace a murderous form of Islam. Amazingly, the populations of Iran and U.S. ally Saudi Arabia, both Islamic dictatorships, number more than 100,000,000!

I think it is just dandy that John Kerry is enlisting Muslims to join the rhetoric war. And I do get the politics. Kerry must make silly statements like the one above to get their help. But if these nations really want to combat radical Islam, they need to put boots on the ground and take out their wallets. While America and Europe may be the targets of random terror attacks, the radical threat from ISIS and al Qaida is far greater, as they seek to overthrow all of the governments of the Middle East.
