Intellectual Terrorism

There is another kind of terrorism in Islam:  intellectual terrorism.  Islam is a prison with no way out.  Once a person enters that prison, he cannot leave it alive.  In Islam, the democratic right to free thought and individual decision concerning religious matters is totally denied.  We have more than one example of this intellectual terrorism, I will mention but a few.

The first is Salman Rushdie.  Salman Rushdie was born to a Muslim family in Bombay, but spent much of his life in London, England.  He wrote a book entitled The Satanic Verses.  Muslims though this book was an insult to the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.  So Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini issued an order to assassinate Rushdie and promised $5 million to the one who would kill him.  Khomeini, Iran’s spiritual leader at that time, said in a statement read for him on the radio in 1989: “Anyone who died attempting to kill Rushdie,” he promised, “would go straight to paradise.”  Rushdie’s head is very expensive!!

The second is Dr. Farag Foda, the great author who was assassinated in Cairo, Egypt in 1993 because he wrote many books exposing the true face of Islam and Islamic society.  He was accused of being an apostate Muslim and was shot and killed in front of his son.

The third is Professor Nasr Hamid Abu Zeid, who was accused of being an apostate Muslim because of his books about the Koran.  The court in Egypt ruled that he must divorce his wife, Ibihal Younes.  He fled from Egypt and is now living with his wife in Holland.

The fourth is the well-known Egyptian writer Naguib Mahfouz, who became the first Egyptian to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.  Muslims stabbed him in front of his house in an attempt to kill him.  The man is over 80 years old.  They wanted to kill him because they thought that he insulted Muhammad in his novel, The Children of Gabalawi.   It is of great importance for any American or any secular Muslim to know what kind of society he or she will live in if fundamentalist Muslims rule.

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
