Category Archives: Islam, religion of peace – not so

Islam, religion of peace , is an assertion that clashes with reality. Many Quranic verses show that the perception that Islam is a religion of peace is false.

The Quran contains contradictions. There are some contradictions between what early chapters (those that were written early in the Prophet’s life) specify about the obligation of Muslims to be tolerant of the religions of others, and later exhortations (written late or toward the end of the Prophet’s life) that are far more aggressive and even deadly toward and intolerant of other religions.  Later passages abrogate earlier ones.

passages revealed later in Muhammad’s career, in Medina, overrule passages revealed earlier, in Mecca. The Quran itself lays out the principle of abrogation:

2:106. Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We {Allah} abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things?

In other words, what the Prophet said last is what counts.

Roman Warm Period : Timeline and Decline

The Roman Warm Period covered the interval from about 250 BC to about 400 AD.  It had helped to bring the Roman Empire to its apex, when the City of Rome had about one million residents.  The might, size and wealth of the Roman Empire declined when the Roman Warm Period came to an end.  The decline of the Roman Empire can be discerned in the trend of the size of the population of the City of Rome over time.

Britain capitulates to Islamic terror

SPECTATOR.com, U.K. 2009 02 11 Britain capitulates to terror By Melanie Phillips If anyone had doubted the extent to which Britain has capitulated to Islamic terror, the banning of Geert Wilders a few hours ago should surely open their eyes. Wilders, the Dutch member of parliament who had made an uncompromising stand against the Koranic sources of Islamist extremism and violence, was due to give a screening of Fitna, his film on this subject, at the House of Lords on Thursday. This meeting had been postponed after Lord Ahmed had previously threatened the House of Lords authorities that he would bring a force of 10,000 Muslims to lay siege to … Continue reading

Movie Fitna – Opposing Islamic Terrorism

On Thursday, 2008 03 27, Geert Wilders, Member of the Parliament in Holland, posted his movie Fitna, a short film of about 12 minute duration, on YouTube. Geert Wilders’ movie and his action of posting it on the Internet received of course much criticism from moderate and politically correct individuals and even from extremist left-wing radicals.  The criticism is directed at what his opponents consider to be an anti-Islamic stance.  That sort of criticism is misdirected, but we have not yet seen the last of it. There is little in the movie that is critical of all of Islam, but there is much in the movie that is extremely critical … Continue reading
