Islam and Terrorism - Psychological Terrorism
That brings us to the third kind of terrorism in Islam: psychological terrorism.
Instilling fear in the hearts of those who disobey the Koran is a vital factor in Islam. This psychological terrorism was practiced when the Taliban regime ruled Afghanistan. During that period of time any woman who would show more than her eyes was flogged in the street. Music, television, even sports were not allowed.
In Saudi Arabia, a woman is banned from driving a car or from walking down the street alone, or without covering all her body with the hejab. Women in Islam live under constant fear of beating or divorce. The Koran says the following in Surat Al-Nisa Chapter 4:34:
As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds (which means do not have sex with them) and beat them.
Add to all that the threat against any Muslim who apostates from Islam (renounces Islam). He or she is to be executed. Today we are hearing on radio and television many Muslim Clerics saying that Islam means peace. The truth is that the word Islam means submission, not peace. A Muslim is one who is in submission to Allah. Since Allah is invisible, so submission should be to the sharia (law) of the clerics who interpret the Koran. Peace is granted only to Muslims.
Islam divides the world’s population into two camps, Dar Al-Harb (House of War) where Jews and Christians live, and Dar Al-Islam (House of Islam) where Muslims live. They believe that Jihad, Holy War, should continue against those who live in the House of War until they are all exterminated or converted to Islam.
Fundamentalists dream of a global Islamic empire. They believe that if they destroy America and western countries they will achieve this dream.
