Islam and Terrorism - The Second Phase of Islam

The Second Phase of Islam

The later phase of Islam, and I may say the permanent phase of Islam, according to the doctrine of abrogation in the Koran, came when the prophet Muhammad migrated to Medina and organized a strong army.  When he saw that Jews and Christians rejected his prophethood and Islam, he commanded the Muslims to change the Kibla, the direction in which Muslims turn when they pray, from Jerusalem to the Kaaba in Mecca.  At that time in history the Kaaba was a shrine for 360 idols.

Then Muhammad exterminated Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula.   He renounced Jews and Christians as polytheists, therefore impure and defiled.  As such, Muhammad commanded that they never come near the Kaaba in Mecca.  To this day no Jew or Christian can enter the Mecca, or come near Al-Kaaba, the Holy shrine in Saudi Arabia.  Here are the words of the Koran:

O you who believe [Muslims] the Mushrikun [polytheists and unbelievers in Allah and the Message of Muhammad] are najasum [impure, defiled].  So let them not come near Al-Masjd Al Haram [the Kaaba in Mecca] after this year.                                                    (Surat Al-Tauba 9:28)

This is the phase of Islam we encounter today.

To be sure Islamic Terrorism was practiced in Muhammad’s days.  The Koran commands Muslims to terrorize and strike the necks and smite the fingers and toes of the infidels [Jews and Christians].  The Koran says:

I will cast terror into the hearts of those who are infidels, 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 [Muhammad].  And whoever defies and disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then verily, Allah is severe in punishments.  This is (the torment), to taste it; and surely, for the infidels is the torment of the fire.                             (Surat Al-Anfal 8:12-14)

Before September 11th, we saw Islamic terrorism in Egypt—where many Egyptian Christians were murdered—in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and other parts of the world.  When the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., occurred on September 11, 2001, Americans woke up, as from a nightmare.  Their financial and military institutions had been attacked.  And a third plane was aimed to destroy the White House, the executive institution.  But, thank God, it crashed in Pennsylvania.

On that day, Americans began asking three questions:

First, “Who are those people who attacked us?”

Second, “Why do they hate us?”

Third, “What motivated them to commit these horrific attacks?”

Before answering these three questions, I have to say that there are three kinds of Islamic Terrorism:

  • First, physical terrorism,
  • Second, intellectual terrorism,
  • Third, psychological terrorism.

By discussing these three kinds of terrorism, we will have the answer for our three questions.

This article is very hurtful and disrespectful to some people. Not all Muslims are terrorists. You can not pin the hate done by specific people in the world to the people who are part of the whole religion. I know you might not believe that Islam is a religion of love and kindness, but can we please just stop arguing? From your perspective things might look different, but religion is not something we should fight about. We should try and share it through understanding and love rather than fighting and arguing about things. If we don't believe in something another says, that does not mean that they can not okay? I mean that is the beauty of religion right? Also, I believe what I believe and you
believe what you believe and no one changes that, so again we should not argue or fight about things like this, because that will not break your belief of break mine.

From what i have read above,my conclusion is Islam preaches Terrorism, that is do physical harm and possibly kill those who do not embrace Islam. This is a kind of Dictatorship and that's not good. Every human being is born free, and is free to follow any religion he likes, not just Islam. You cannot force Islam on anyone. That's truly insane.

A serious mistake in this artlicle...
// When the prophet Muhammad began to call people in Mecca to Islam, he was weak.  He needed the help of the Jews and the Christians, so he praised them.  Here is what the Koran, the holy book of Islam says about Jews and Christians at that time:Verily, those who believe [Muslims] and those who are Jews and Christians and Sabians whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and does righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord.  On them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.            (Surat Al-Baqarah 2:62)//
This makes it sound like islam is v self serving, which praises people when it needs them. And its not true. So pl do the necessory corrections...

Bukhari Vol 9, Book 87, Number 111 clearly shows that Islam started in the cave of Hira with the forces of evil.
The only solution is to expose Islam for what it really is which you have done except for one statement at the end... "the verses of the Koran calling for Jihad and killing of Jews and Christians were for Muhammad’s time." This is not true!!! these commands are eternal for ALL Muslims. This truth must be exposed so that every Muslim would turn apostate and Islam (Muhammadism) would end. John 14:6
