"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." James Madison

FITNA, by Geert Wilders


Most know by now Live Leak succumbed to the death threats against staff members, consequently removing the movie. Click on the link below to read the explanation. Braden happened to have a You tube version, so I'll post it until You Tube rolls over:

Here's another source for the film:

How contrite. I imagine at some point this blog may come under attack for also publishing verses from the Qur’an, But allow me to post a bible verse that will help explain the obvious. Pay close attention to vs 19-21.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."

I have decided to post this video because I recognize the real threat we as Americans, more specifically non-Muslims face in the world today. In the comments of one of my recent posts, I debated an individual claiming to be a ‘moderate Muslim’. There are two problems with that:

• First of all, his holy book advises him to deceive the infidels for the sake of Allah which clearly precludes any comments made by him;

• Secondly, if he really is as he claims, a moderate, then his holy book declares him apostate, and he runs the same risk of loosing his head as the rest of us infidels.

I have posted my own findings in context below the video link. If there was any question in your mind of who our enemy is, perhaps this post will eliminate all doubt.

The Qur'an commands Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians:
"O ye who believe (Muslims) take not the Jews or the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them." (Surat Al-Maidah 5:51)

It commands Muslims to fight Jews and Christians:
"Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (Mohammed) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." (Surah At-Taubah 9:29)
(Jizyah BTW, is a special high tax to be paid only by Jews or Christians who do not want to renounce their religion and convert to Islam (this Qur'anic Law is still practiced today in much of the Muslim world)).

The Qur'an commands Muslims to convert non-Muslims to Islam by force:
"Kill the Mushrikun (polytheists, Christians and non-Muslims), wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush. But, if they repent and perform As-salat (public prayer with Muslims) and give Zakat (Islamic alms), then leave their way free. Allah is oft-forgiving, most merciful." (Surat At-Taubah 9:5)

The Qur'an commands Muslims to terrorize and torture and kill anyone who disobeys Allah and the prophet Mohammed:
"(Remember) when your Lord revealed to the angels, "Verily I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks and smite over all their fingers and toes. This is because they defied and disobeyed Allah and His Messenger (Mohammed). And whoever defies and disobeys Allah and His Messenger, them verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. This is (the torment), so taste it; and surely, for the disbelievers is the torment of the Fire." (Surat Al-Anfal 8:12-14)
"The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger (Mohammed) and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter." (Surat Al-Maidah 5:33)

So, what we see is a 'holy book' teaching hate filled principles and instructing Muslims to go kill innocent, non-combatants because they are non-Muslim and won't convert.

And on top of all this warm and fuzzy teaching, we see that Islam is a prison with no way out. Once a person enters that prison, he cannot leave it alive:
"Then what is the matter with you that you are divided into two parties about the apostates? Allah has cast them back (to disbelief) because of what they have earned. Do you want to guide him whom Allah has made to go astray? And he whom Allah has made to go astray, you will never find for him any way (of guidance). They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Aouliya (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah (to Mohammed). But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Aouliya (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them." (Surat An-Nisa 4:88,89)

Furthermore, it is worth noting here that the words 'fight' and 'kill' appear more frequently in the Qur'an than the word 'pray.' That is certainly curious for a ‘holy book’.
