Islam Demands Unconditional Surrender
What's in a name? A great deal. Democracy, fascism, and communism represent
different systems of government. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are also
titles for different religious systems.
Whereas democracy is defined as the rule of the people, by the people, for
the people, Islam is defined as the rule of Allah, by Allah and his
emissaries, for the pleasure of Allah. And when people, out of concern for
political correctness or ignorance, describe Islam as a religion of peace,
they are, at the very least, guilty of misrepresenting it.
The word "Islam," is derived from the Arabic "aslama," or "Tasleem" which
means 'surrender.' The word for peace is not "tasleem," but it is "solh."
Hence, when radical Muslims behave in violent barbaric ways, they are only
doing so in obedience to the dictates of their creed. They are surrendering
and sacrificing anything and everything in service to the will and pleasure
of Allah, as they see it. In saying that Islam means peace, Islamic
apologists are simply indulging in word play in order to put as positive a
spin on things as they can. It is an attempt to argue that Islam promotes
non-violence. In other words, they are lying.
Of course, not every Muslim surrenders fully to the will of Allah. The great
majority of Muslims are only partial Muslims. They may say their daily
obligatory prayers, they may tithe some, and they may keep the fast from
time to time. Yet, they may also have a few drinks now and then, and do many
things that they are not supposed to do.
But Islam can be a "forgiving" religion, specifically for the male. If you
neglect to say your prayers or you simply don't want to, you can hire
someone, preferably an imam or a mullah, to pray on your behalf. Going to
the Hajj is too onerous and takes you away from the pleasures and comforts
of your life? You can deputize someone else to go in your stead. You have a
few drinks of the forbidden brew and it is time to say your prayer? Simply
rinse your mouth and go ahead with praying. But, always remember the will of
Allah and serve him. Do your duties to vanquish the unbelievers, promote the
rule of the Shari'a, and make the earth Allah's.
If only the masses of Muslims arise and carry out the orders of Allah, then
we would have the promised paradise of Islam on earth as exemplified by such
rules as that of the Taliban, Saudi Arabia, the Sudan, and of course the
Shiite nirvana of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
In these model Islamic societies, freedom of expression, worship, and
assembly are taken away. Women are treated as chattel. Young girls are
subjected to barbaric genital mutilation to make them sex slaves and birth
channels without the ability to enjoy intercourse. Minors are executed,
adulterers are stoned to death, thieves have their limbs amputated, and much
much more. Isn't that everyone's idea of paradise?
This misogynist religion of Allah is custom-made for the savage male. A
faithful follower of Allah is allowed to have as many as four permanent
wives - and replace any of them at any time he wants -- as well as an
unlimited number of one-night or one-hour-standers that he can afford to
rent. But, woe unto a woman if she even has a single love affair with
another man. Nothing less than death by stoning is her just punishment.
The partial-Muslims are seemingly harmless, may appear normal, and are under
the radar. What gets our attention is the die-hard, the real Muslims who are
a small minority. Yet this virulent combative minority is campaigning
simultaneously on two major fronts. It works to herd the partial-Muslim
majority into its fold and vanquish all other non-believers by any and all
It is prudent to keep in mind that all important events in the history of
humanity have been instigated by either an individual or a small group.
These individuals or groups have been the sheep dogs that have directed the
movements and activities of the masses, the sheep.
This is exactly what the real Muslims, the Islamists, are doing in the world
today. It is suicidal to dismiss the Islamists as a bunch of zealots of no
consequences or as a fringe group that will burn itself out. Sadly enough,
it is the bulk of the Muslims that pundits portray as "peaceful" who is
either irrelevant or often serves as an instrument in the hands of the
Islamists. A couple of examples from recent history conclusively prove the
point that it is the fanatical minorities that launch and implement
campaigns that inflict immense suffering on the larger society.
In the 1930s, very few Germans were Nazis, but many basked in the resurgence
of German pride and many others were too busy with their own lives to care.
Thus, Germany presented a wide-open unchallenged opportunity for the Nazis
to push forward their agenda and gather power to a point that it was too
late for any other force to stem their tide.
And we all know what suffering this gang of radical supremacists inflicted
on millions of people before their own demise.
The Khomeinism of Iran was started by a band of Shiite fanatics who rode the
tide of opposition to the rule of the Shah and promised the masses the
Islamic nirvana. No sooner had the Khomeinists ascended to power than they
made the entire nation captive by murdering tens of thousands of the
complacent and the late-to-awaken opposition, imprisoning and torturing
untold thousands more, and creating a state of Islamic menace that threatens
the entire free world.
The fact is that too many die-hard Islamists continue leaving the failed
Islamic states and settling in the lands of the Kafir. These new arrivals
bring with them the deeply engrained hatred of the infidels and believe that
they are indeed the rightful owner of the entire earth and all other
non-Muslims are mere squatters that must be either subjugated or eliminated
In this relentless campaign, the Islamists have a vast cadre of "experts,"
"talking heads," and for-purchase politicians who keep endlessly
broadcasting the false mantra that Islam is religion of peace. This latter
bunch is criminally complicit in making the populace complacent and
furthering the work of the Islamists.
Islam may be a religion of peace. It is the kind of peace embedded in its
very name: Surrender. Free people shouldn't be cowed by the Islamist savages
and should take into account their accomplices who are shamelessly deceiving
the public regarding the true nature of Islam. And what should we do? We
should articulate a fair and fearless critique of Islam. We must expose
Islam as it really is and then identify moderate voices that are calling for
a complete reformation.
Islam demands unconditional surrender of all that free people cherish and
hold sacred. It is Islam, a pathological doctrine and a vestige of long ago
barbarism that must surrender to the wholesome principles of freedom and
