by Moody Adams Here we go again. When Faisal Shahzad was arrested for the attempted attack on Times Square the media echoed the question; “Who radicalized him?” The answer is clear and simple. Any person knowledgeable about Islam knows the Koran radicalized him.
Read Atta’s letter to his 9-11 team on the night before they hit the Trade Towers; he used the Koran to encourage them to die." So remember God, as He said in His book: 'Oh Lord, pour your patience upon us and make our feet steadfast and give us victory over the infidels' (quoting Koran 7:126)." And His words: "And the only thing they said Lord, forgive our sins and excesses and make our feet steadfast and give us victory over the infidels.' … Shout, 'Allahu Akbar,' because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers. God said: 'Strike above the neck, and strike at all of their extremities.' Do not seek revenge for yourself. Strike for God's sake." … Atta quoted from the Koran (Surah 44:51-59) to assure the attackers that the women were dressed and waiting for them in heaven when he wrote: “Know that the gardens of paradise are waiting for you in all their beauty, and the women of paradise are waiting, calling out, 'Come hither, friend of God.' They have dressed in their most beautiful clothing” (Atta’s letter).
The government knows the Koran is what convinces Muslims to kill non-Muslims: “With suicide bombings spreading from Iraq to Afghanistan, the Pentagon has asked intelligence analysts to pinpoint what's driving Muslim after Muslim to do the unthinkable. Their preliminary finding is politically explosive: it's their "holy book" the Quran after all, according to intelligence briefings obtained by WND”(WorldNetDaily).
But the U.S. government makes every effort to avoid linking the terrorist threat to Islam and the Koran, dismissing suicide terrorists as crazed heretics who are perverting Islamic teachings. No! they are the ones who are obeying the Koran’s teachings.
Koran 47:4 commands Muslims to kill those who do not believe in Allah,: "When ye encounter the infidels (unbelievers), strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them, and of the rest make fast the fetters." The prophet Muhammad gave the correct interpretation of the passage, “Fight in the name of Allah and in the cause of Allah. Fight against those who do not believe in Allah. Wage a holy war” (Hadith, SAHIH MUSLIM 4294). "Battle those who criticize (revile) Islam." Koran 9:12 says: “But if, after alliance made, they break their oaths and revile your religion, then do battle with the ring-leaders of infidelity."
The Koran commands the killing of those who practice any religion but Islam: “And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other gods with God wherever ye shall find them, seize them, besiege them, and lay in wait for them with every kind of ambush" (Koran 9:5).
The Koran commands Muslims to fight until everyone on earth worships their god, Allah. “Fight therefore against them until . . . the only worship be that of God (Allah)" (Koran 2:193).
The Koran teaches that fighting non-Muslims gains you a great reward in Paradise: “Let those then fight on the path of God, who barter this present life for that which is to come; for whoever fighteth on God’s path, whether he be slain or conquer, we will in the end give him a great reward” (Koran 4:74).
Every Muslim on earth believes the Koran is the infallible word of Allah. Every thing else is subjective. What the Koran says is the truth about Islam.
The difference between a Muslim terrorist and a Christian who commits acts of terrorism is the Christian is disobeying his scriptures that say “love” your enemies, while the Muslim is obeying his scriptures that command killing.
