"ISLAMOPHOBIA" OR CHRISTIAN LOVE?
"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." ~ George Orwell

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” ~ Aristotle

Besides those who live in areas where Muslims are currently slaughtering innocent non-Muslims, who has more reason to be afraid of Islam, than Muslims themselves? They know better than anybody that if they exercise our God-given rights to freedom, liberty and self-determination, and choose to leave Islam, they may loose their inheritance, family, friends, community, job, and in some Islamic slave states even be subject to the death penalty by State statute for "apostasy". Offspring may even be murdered by their own father or mother in an Islamic "honor killing".

"Muslims are the first victims of Islam, to liberate them from this religion is the best service that one can render them..." ~ Ernest Renan (1823-1892)

So who has reason to be more "Islamophobic" than Muslims, who are enslaved into performance, before their Muslim masters?

AP - December 06, 2006 MOGADISHU, Somalia - "Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an Islamic courts official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days."

The suffix "phobia" suggests a fear that is "unrealistic" or ".....typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational.....", so it is obviously oxymoronic to apply that suffix to the term "Islam", which identifies a violent, murderous, imperialistic, political machine, whose adherents are commanded by their leader to conquer the world and subjugate all people to Muhammad's followers. Thus it should be painfully obvious to a rational person that the term "Islamophobia" is an invention of the enemy of all mankind and those who parrot the term are useful dupes of the enemy. Not so dissimilar to origin and use of the word "Palestine".

Bukhari, V1 B2 #24 Narrated Ibn 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle.....

For Muhammad's orthodox followers those words are just as relevant today as they were 1400 years ago. Indeed for a Muslim to suggest fighting is not prescribed is "hypocritical", according to Islamic scholars in the Middle East cradle of the religion, that get Islam. Of course it would pure blasphemy against Jesus Christ to testify as that verse commands, and many Christians are martyred by Muslims for refusing to do so when that, or denial of Jesus Christ, is demanded of them. While Muslims are unable to see it, Islam's actual ultimate goal is to subjugate everyone in the world to denying the Son of God and rejecting his crucifixion and thus His shed blood - the whole subject of the Gospel.

Surah 2.216 fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.

Quran Surah 9.111 Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.

No surprise then that Islamic slave States subject their own citizens to the death penalty for speaking freely or choosing to leave Islam. This Islamic State-sponsored court-sentenced murder is practiced by fundamental, non-"hypocrite" followers of Muhammad and leaders of Islamic nationstates in the cradle of Muhammad's anti-religion, that are at or near achieving the "perfection" of "Sharia" - that get Islam.

Quran Surah 5:33 The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their 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.

Indeed Muhammad prohibits his followers from even making friends with Jews and Christians or they become of us:

Surah 5:51 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guideth not a people unjust.

It reads the same, or even worse, in all translations. Very serious business indeed for: "He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them." as Pickthall and many others put it, since Muslims are taught that to confess that Jesus is the Son of God or even to pray in Jesus' name, constitutes Muhammad's ONLY UNFORGIVABLE SIN of "shirk". Muslims may pretend friendship for purposes of daw'ah, even to the point of Muslim men marrying Christian women, for purposes of the eventual conversion of the wife and her community. However the inverse, of a Muslim woman marrying a Christian man, could put the woman in danger of loosing her life through an "honor killing".

It would seem that Muslims are compelled to believe that each and every Christian throughout the last nearly 2,000 years, has lived and died in a state of committing Muhammad's only unforgivable sin of "shirk".


However our beliefs of course, are based on the hundreds of New Testament verses that proclaim the Father and His Son, which goes to the very "doctrine of Christ":

2John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Since Islam is a violent, murderous, imperialistic anti-religion that directly and specifically opposes the Gospel of Jesus Christ, how irrational, disproportional or even inappropriate would a response of fear be, for the Christian mother of five who has been sentenced to death in Pakistan, for a false accusation of blasphemy brought against her by accusers that exposed themselves as being anti-Christian Muslim bigots? Pakistan is a primary driving force among the antichrist Islamic States of the Organisation of Islamic [unilateral] Cooperation who Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prostituted the U.S. out to, by supporting anti-blasphemy laws toward global speech control, and against her oath of office to support and defend the Constitution.

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." ~ George Washington

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

The end of politically correct western societies?


"Join the Islamophobes through history.
Islamophobe means you are fighting against tolerance for the intolerable and for protection of liberties and human rights against the very enemy of humanness, rights and freedom. No creed have a greater record of violence and barbarity than the followers of Islam, and they have never transformed or improved over the centuries."

From Atlas Shrugs: "Muslims Slaughter 75 in Deadly Attack on Historic Church in Pakistan"
"Relentless. Muslims murdering, persecuting, torturing Christians in Muslim countries, and the world says nothing. The same silence preceded the Nazi genocide of twelve million people.
Instead, the world advances the savages' narrative that opposition to jihad and sharia is "islamophobia." Vilified are the few who dare to speak out against this vicious anti-human system of oppression. And their dissemblers in the media and proxies in the West like CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MSA, Aslan Media, etc., are lauded and loved. "

"Tolerance is the virtue of a man without convictions." ~ G. K. Chesterton


Would any of the 75 innocent men, women and children that were targeted and killed or the 141 that were injured, by Islamic suicide bombers in that historic church in Pakistan, have been harboring an irrational or disproportional fear of Islam, before they went to church that morning? How about the non-Muslim mall shoppers targeted in the Kenya mall siege? Would any of the 2 million killed, displaced and enslaved by Muhammad's followers in the Sudan alone, be harboring an irrational or disproportional fear of Islam? I'll embellish the following quotes between parentheses:

From Christianity Today: "Once again, women are the targets. In mid-March, (Muslim) rebels assaulted three women gathering firewood and cut off their ears, lips, and breasts."  
"Starting in 2003, Janjaweed (Muslim) Arabs, a Sudan-backed (Muslim) militia, have driven 2 million villagers from their homes in ethnic-cleansing attacks designed to suppress local rebels."

"Eyewitness accounts detailing the (Muslim) militia attacks are horrifying. "They killed my 3-year-old son right in front of my eyes," one father from West Darfur said. Since last fall, women have reported more than 500 rapes. Three women said five (Muslim) militiamen beat and raped them last August. The women said, "After they abused us, they told us that now we would have Arab babies. And, if they would find any [more] women, they would rape them again to change the color of their children.""

Just as Muhammad recommended his followers do:  
Bukhari B93 #506 Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interrupt us. The Prophet said, "It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection." Qaza'a said, "I heard Abu Sa'id saying that the Prophet said, 'No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it."

How about the Muslims in this Somalian town - an irrational or disproportional fear of Islam?
AP - December 06, 2006 MOGADISHU, Somalia - "Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an Islamic courts official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days."

Would any of the men, women and children that have been murdered in over 21,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks around the world just since 9-11, or their survivors, have been harboring irrational or disproportional fear of Islam prior to the attacks? Would any of the 3,000 killed in the World Trade Center Islamic terror attack on 9-11, have been harboring an irrational or disproportional fear of Islam, when they headed out to work that morning?


Would fear of Islam be an irrational or disproportional emotion for the families of most of the 100,000 to 180,000 Christians that are martyred (let alone maimed) by Muhammad's followers all around the world every year?

CNS reports: "Sunni Muslim terrorists committed “about 70 percent” of the 12,533 terrorist murders in the world last year, according to a report by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC)."


The effort to silence voices of truth and reason by hurling epithets like "Islamophobe" remains the domain of those who, as a result of a limited capacity for critical thought, have been duped into believing falsehood that they are then unable to defend.

Liars for Satan himself preposterously accuse "Islamophobia" in order to run and hide from the truth, even while churches burn and Christians are slaughtered as the last of the non-Muslim remnant is wiped out, in the formerly Christian lands of the Middle East as well as in much of the rest of the world.


It isn't difficult to see that use of the term "Islamophobia" is more of a testament to the abject ignorance or mental incapacity of non-Muslims who use it. While spurious terms like "islamophobia" and claims of "insulting our prophet" have been effective contrivances employed by Muhammad's followers to peddle false victimhood, and by Islam's ignorant - or worse - apologist dhimmis, in transparent efforts to end conversations in which undeniable truth has become increasingly apparent.

Even though Muhammad's anti-religion crosses all national boundaries and includes all races, no shortage of intellectually challenged liars even parrot preposterously false charges of "racism", against those that simply point out the truth about Islam. It is a shame that so many can't understand that a love of truth, is so much more of a blessing, than being reduced to hurling epithets as a result of being unable to defend lies. Even worse, no shortage of the defense of Islam by non-Muslims is in fact motivated by the continuing and increasing, 2500 years of black-hearted hatred and persecution of Jews.

"It was politically incorrect to say we need to stamp out Nazism in 1933 and if you critique Islam you are labeled an “Islamaphobe.” If you criticized Nazism by definition you were a Naziphobe. Winston Churchill was a minority voice calling out the warning that world would not heed. The Naziphobes were right and were hated in their time, so again does history repeat and us small band of “Islamaphobes” sound the alarm to warn another great darkness that will befall us if we do not awaken from our deep stupor." ~ Keith Davies
 
Hatred of Muhammad's blasphemy is an expression of love for his followers (URL)

The simple fact of the matter is that it is not possible for a faithful Christian or Jew to recognize Muhammad as other than a false prophet and his stand-alone 23 year 7th century record as other than a lie, in the light of the 1600 year record of YHWH to mankind as revealed through all of His prophets and witnesses, that His people have followed through two covenants for 3500 years. Pointing that fact out to Muhammad's followers, far from being an expression of Islamophobia or hatred of them, is an expression of our love for them. Indeed many Christians around the world are willing to, and in fact do, sacrifice their own lives by preaching Christ crucified to Muhammad's sorely deluded followers.

1Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

Here's an example of some real hate speech.

As made painfully obvious from the first Quran Surah quoted on the home page, Muhammad proclaimed the exact opposite of the whole subject of the Gospel, which necessarily renders Muhammadan Islam to be patently false from a Christian perspective - period. Let alone Muhammad's blasphemy against the Son of God, and the historical origins of Islamic rituals, coupled with the absence of a history of Mecca prior to the 4th century AD, that demonstrates 4500 years of pre-Muhammad Islamic so-called "tradition" to be a work of scripture-contrary pure fiction.

There is also, however sadly, certainly no shortage of supersessionist self-proclaimed Christians involved in the ecumenical movement, including the Roman Church, with some even being duped into religious pluralism, however this would all seem to be fulfillment of yet more prophesy during the "falling away" or apostasy that seems a perfect fit for the times in which we may well find ourselves.

If a person harbored hatred for Muhammad's followers, the best way to advance their hatred would simply be to ignore them so they could continue down the path that the scriptures would seem to indicate they are on, unimpeded.

Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Indeed it is an expression of our Christian love to point the truth out to our Muslim could-become-brethren in Christ Jesus, though no shortage of false accusations of hatred are leveled against those of us who have been called, to help those poor folks overcome the strong delusion that they suffer.

2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will  live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

This is frequently compounded by their transparent efforts to shift the subject of Christian hatred for Muhammad's blasphemy against Jesus Christ, to instead falsely accuse us of hating Muslim persons, when the exact opposite is in fact what motivates us.

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

As for Jews, the New Testament suggests that God may have given some of them blindness to the Gospel, in this new covenant era, perhaps so they can't sin against it. I'll let Jews express their own opinion regarding Muhammad's prophethood, through Islam's own books, in what follows. Ever since Muhammad's day Jews have been slaughtered by Muhammad's followers, for rejecting Muhammad as a prophet, because they follow our one great God YHWH through our scriptures:

Ishaq:461 "After the siege exhausted and terrorized them, the Jews felt certain that the Apostle would not leave them until he had exterminated them. So they decided to talk to Ka'b Asad. He said, 'People of the Jews, you see what has befallen you. I shall propose three alternatives. Take whichever one you please.' He said, 'Swear allegiance to this man and accept him; for, by Allah, it has become clear to you that he is a prophet sent from Allah. It is he that you used to find mentioned in your scripture book. Then you will be secure in your lives, your property, your children, and your wives.'"

Mohammed having revealed himself as a terrorist. The Jews responded:

Ishaq:462/Tabari VIII:30 "The Jews said, 'We will never abandon the Torah or exchange it for the Qur'an.' Asad said, 'Since you reject this proposal of mine, then kill your children and your wives and go out to Muhammad and his Companions as men who brandish swords, leaving behind no impediments to worry you. If you die, you shall have left nothing behind; if you win you shall find other women and children.' The Jews replied, 'Why would we kill these poor ones? What would be the good of living after them?'"

Even though they knew their very lives were at stake, Yahweh's faithful people well understood that abandoning the Torah to follow Mohammed in this life, would result in a death sentence in the hereafter.

Bukhari:V5B59N448 "They then surrendered to the Prophet's judgment but he directed them to Sa'd to give the verdict. Sad said, 'I give my judgment that their men should be killed, their women and children should be taken as captives, and their properties distributed.'"

Tabari VIII:38 "The Messenger of Allah commanded that all of the Jewish men and boys who had reached puberty should be beheaded. Then the Prophet divided the wealth, wives, and children of the Banu Qurayza Jews among the Muslims."

Abu Dawud 38:4390 Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi: I was among the captives of Banu Qurayza. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.

Tabari VIII:35/Ishaq:464 "The Jews were made to come down, and Allah's Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men."

So all those innocent young farm boys - and their dads and grandpas - were beheaded, as their little brothers, sisters, mothers and grandmothers looked on. Unfortunately that wasn't the end of it for the women:

Bukhari:V5 B34 #432 Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah's Apostle he said, "O Allah's Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus?" The Prophet said, "Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.

Qur'an 33:26 "Allah took down the People of the Scripture Book. He cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some you made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, giving you a land which you had not traversed before. And Allah has power over all things."

How irrational, disproportionate or even inappropriate would a response of fear have been, for the men, women and children of the three Medina based Jewish tribes that Muhammad attacked, murdered and looted? Or any of the rest of the victims of the first Islamic Jihad conquest, of nearly the whole known world, all the way up to France and Austria.

".... according to one unidentified Arab, 'That army went through all places like a desolating storm.' sacking and capturing the city of Bordeaux, and then defeating the army of Duke Odo of Aquitaine at the Battle of the River Garonne — where the western chroniclers state, 'God alone knows the number of the slain'—[3] and Odo fled to Charles Martel, seeking help."  

As far as phobias go, God's people know we have no need to fear anything, as we understand that our temporal life in this world is as a little steam escaping from a teapot compared to the earth's atmosphere.

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

Additionally, the term "Islamophobia" is perhaps a bit of a misnomer, since the record makes it clear there is no reason for anybody to fear the religion of Islam or Muhammad's "Allah", however, unfortunately, the same can't be said for Muhammad's true followers. Perhaps "true-followers-of-Muhammad-phobic", or "non-hypocrite-Muslim-phobic", would be better ways to characterize it, if the fear had actually been irrational or disproportionate. While unregenerate pagans were fearful of the deities of other pagan religions, because of the mystique created through their unfamiliarity, there is no reason in this information age for anyone to be fearful of a deity that creates 4,500 years of pre-Muhammad history from thin air, based in a town that did not exist before the 4th century AD, that would inspire the kind of behavior that it does in Muhammad's true followers, that Muhammad did. There is no reason to fear a religion of flying donkey-mules. Indeed it is those who follow an anti-religion so perfectly opposite to that revealed through the 1600 year record of the one great God YHWH of the Jews and Christians, that are the ones that should be phobic - indeed in absolute sheer terror.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Whether Jesus returns within the hour, or a follower of Muhammad drops dead this very hour, and stands in judgment before the very Son of God they blaspheme.

John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

While Christians never have anything to fear, there is however very good reason for the average guy on the street to fear Muhammad's true followers, because of what Muhammad commands his followers to do, and their willingness to carry out his instructions over the last 1400 years. With over 21,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks around the world today, just since 9-11, as reported by the folks at TheReligionOfPeace.com

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11


"Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari" - Maktba Dar-us-Salam's page 580
Chapter 2. The best among the people is that believer who strives his utmost in Allah's Cause with both his life and property.
footnotes:
[1] "Al-Jihad (the holy fighting) in Allah's Cause (with full force of number and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah's Word is made superior, [His Word being La ilaha ill-Allah (which means: none has the right to be worshipped but Allah] and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; there honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.
[2] Of course, nobody can offer Salat (prayer) and observe Saum (fast) incessantly, and since the Muslim fighter is rewarded as if he was doing such good impossible deeds, no possible deed equals Jihad in reward.

Since the term "Islamophobia" is an oxymoron, if today you would fear speaking freely about anything at all for fear of the intellectually incapacitated hurling ridiculous epithets at you - and yet you don't do anything about it - what kind of future are you consigning your heirs to? Is it reasonable to expect the direction of things to automatically reverse course?

The world is setting up, for what could be the greatest tragedy to hit mankind in the history of the world, if Jesus were to return today. Far from being an act of hatred, it is an act of Christian love, compassion, and indeed our Christian duty, to warn Muhammad's followers about impending judgment, by preaching Christ crucified.

Bukhari B34 #425: Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a just ruler and will break the cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government). Then there will be abundance of money and no-body will accept charitable gifts.

1Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Quran Surah 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

And just because a person is "Islamophobic", doesn't mean Muhammad's followers aren't commanded to conquer, subdue, and subjugate him!
