End part one of emailTRUTHS ABOUT THE THREAT OF ISLAM TO OUR NATION
by Euell White
The Quran is divided into 114 chapters called Surahs, and these chapters are divided into verses. The English translations do not always accurately reflect the original Arabic, especially when the passage would be offensive to Westerners whom they wish to deceive. In his book, Islam and Terrorism, Dr. Mark A. Gabriel, gives an example of this. In the Ali translation of Surah 8:39 we find: "and fight them all until there is no more tumult or oppression and there prevail-justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere. In the Nobel Quran we find these words: Fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism, i.e. worshiping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will be for Allah alone (in the whole world).
Dr. Gabriel was raised a Muslim in Egypt and taught Islamic History and literature at Al-Azhar University before he converted to Christianity. He was tortured almost to death for simply expressing doubts about Islam before he encountered Christ. Most of our men and women in government, as well as many of our so-called Christian leaders, are dangerously ignorant of what Islam really is * Evil! The word Islam means "submission" and the word Muslim means "one who submits to Allah." According to the Quran one cannot be a true Muslim unless he submits. "O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the messenger (Muhammed) and those of you ( Muslims) who are in authority." (Surah 4:59, The Noble Quran)
The Quran started in A.D. 610 when Mohammed claimed that the angel Gabriel spoke to him while he was meditating in the cave near Mecca. Mohammed claimed that these were the words of the one true God * Allah. Over a 22-year period Mohammed wrote down these words as he received them, or so he claimed.
Another set of holy writings are the books of Hadith. These are records of the sayings and actions of Mohammed. People who were close to him, such as friends and wives, observed and recorded his activities. These writings were collected by scholars who put them in six sets of books. The majority of the Muslim world considers Hadith to be authoritative. Mohammed¹s life and teachings have established principles of warfare and coercion that are practiced today.
Western nations are today recognizing parts of Sharia Law even in our nation. Some judges are doing this. Sharia is the Islamic law regarding the duty of Muslims toward the God of Islam. The books that describe Islamic law are not specific books like those of Hadith, but a whole body of literature, some ancient and some modern.
The Muslim Brotherhood is at work in our nation to spread this. Their intent is made clear by a spokesman for Global Muslim Brotherhood: "Their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging¹ its miserable house...so that it is eliminated and God¹s religion (Islam) is made victorious over all other religions."
According to Traditional Values Coalition, Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, have infiltrated our schools, courts, government, media, financial institutions and every other level of society as they work stealthily to overthrow our constitution and replace it with Sharia Law. What some may find it hard to accept, is that the Obama administration is helping our enemies. Obama- appointed Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan believes in Sharia Law and has actively worked to advance it in the United States.
Islam is a religion of works and entrance into Paradise (heaven) must be earned. Muslims , however, can never have assurance of salvation. They believe that when they die they go to the grave to await their judgment at resurrection day. There is no guarantee of paradise even if you do good all your life. It depends on what Allah decides. "Then as for him whose balance (of good deeds) will be heavy, he will live a pleasant life ( in paradise). But as far him whose balance of good deeds will be light he will have his home in Hawiyah (pit, i.e. Hell)" Surah 101:6-9, The Noble Quran.
The only way to guarantee entry into paradise is to die while fighting the enemy of Islam. Jihad means to fight the enemy of Allah until the enemies die or the Muslims die. Jihad has been defined in Islamic legal terms as follows: Jihad is fighting anybody who stands in the way of spreading Islam or fighting anyone who refuses to enter into Islam. (Surah 8:39).
According to the Sarah, when a person dies in Jihad he doesn't even have to go to the grave and wait for judgment, but goes directly to paradise. The promise of virgins is not nearly as significant to the motivation of the Jihadist as the belief that dying in Jihad is the only in sure way to paradise.
Many Americans, including some Christians, are confused and misled by the many contradictions in the Quran. There are verses where Christians are complimented as well as verses were we are condemned to hell. Some verses say that Muslims can have good relationships with Christians while others say Muslim must require Christians to convert to Islam. Islamic scholars follow a principle called maskh (System of Quranic interpretation where new verses override previous verses) to determine which verses to follow in the case of contradiction. There are more than 100 verses in the Koran that speak of love, peace and forgiveness, especially in the Surah titled "The Heiffer." (Surah 2:63, 109); but Surah 9:9 was later revealed, and it canceled out these verses: Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem ( of war); but if they repent and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Ali Translation).
Jihad is a command to all Muslims. Its focus is to overcome all who do not accept Islam. In Mohammed's day Jihad was practiced against Christians and Jews on a regular basis, as well as against those who worshiped idols: "Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back from Islam, take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them." ( Surah 4:89, The Noble Quran). " So when you meet (in fight-Jihad in Allah¹s cause) those who disbelieve smite (their) necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)." (Surah 47:4, The Noble Quran).
Americans have been bombarded with misinformation about Islam. During the so-called prayer event right after the attack of 9/11, with all religions participating, President George W. Bush proclaimed that Islam is a religion of peace and that lie has been repeated over and over by politicians and media. Following September 11, 2001 the experts interviewed by the media to present Islam as a religion of peace attempted to separate the religious side of Islam from the political side, which is impossible. Dr. Gabriel points out that the Muslim in TV or print media says Islam is a religion of peace. He says this can be explained as wishful thinking or deceit. with the intent to attract converts.
