The Terrifying Brilliance of Islam


A religious doctrine is a collection of ideas. These could be customs, words, beliefs, etc. A religion is not a single idea; it is a collection of ideas. The collection of ideas that make up the religion of Islam makes Muslims behave and feel as they do.

Collections of ideas compete with each other in the same way that collections of cells (organisms) compete with each other. And because idea-collections compete, and because new ideas can often be added or subtracted from the collection, and because some collections gain more believers than others, collections of ideas can actually evolve.

Let's look at how religious idea-collections evolve and compete. To begin with, let's assume we already have a religion established. It already has a holy book and millions of people are already believers.

And then there is a slight variation...

Let's say the original version had a "live and let live" attitude, and never tried to encourage its followers to bring in converts. But then someone comes up with the idea that if you can persuade a non-believer to become a believer, you earn some sort of spiritual merit. You are saving souls, and your chances of getting into heaven are better.

Okay, now you have two variations on the same religion: One contains the idea that it doesn't really matter if you get anyone else to join the religion. The other motivates its believers to persuade others to join.

After a thousand years, which of the two variations will have more believers? I'm betting on the motivated-to-spread-it version.

Let's assume, for the moment, that the motivated version gets far more followers. Does that mean it makes people happier? Or more successful in life? Or have healthier children? No. Just because a collection of ideas successfully gains followers does not mean it benefits any of the people believing those ideas.

The same is true in genetics. Contrary to common sense, a successful gene doesn't necessarily benefit the organism. It is "successful" in the sense that it has made lots of copies of itself and is found in many organisms. But it may actually be harmful for the organism.

For example, if there is a gene for alcoholism, and if drinking causes someone to start having children younger than someone who doesn't drink, over thousands of years, the alcoholism gene might be more successful (the gene makes its way into more offspring) than the non-alcoholism gene, even though it is bad for each individual person carrying the gene.

In the same way, the success of an idea-collection doesn't necessarily mean it's good for the people who believe it or follow it.

If an idea-collection says it is wrong to use contraception, over time, that idea-collection would probably be followed by more people than the version that says contraception is just fine (assuming people normally teach their children to believe as they do).

So the hapless believer of a particular idea-collection will try to follow the rules and be a good person by avoiding the evil of contraception, and what will be the result for him personally? He may have more children than he might want or could afford, causing him to work overtime to support them — working two jobs if he must. This may send him to an early grave, but his effort creates more believers of that particular collection of ideas than someone who doesn't hold those ideas.

So in a sense, the idea-collection has used the man for its own purposes, or at least that's one legitimate way to look at it. And it's a way that sheds new light on Islam, which is why I've spent so much time explaining it.

If you were going to deliberately design a collection of ideas with the purpose of making one that might eventually dominate the world — one that would eventually out-compete or eliminate every other religion or political system — you would be hard-pressed to do better than Islam.

Let's look at some of the individual ideas within the collection. Many of the ideas enhance each other. In other words, adding one idea to the others can make the whole collection much more effective because some ideas work synergistically. If you'd like to read more detail and background about the principles below, check out: Terrifying Brilliance of Islam: Amplification of Key Concepts.

Here are some of the key components of the idea-collection known as Islam:

1. A standardized version of the idea-collection is written down. This is something basic to several religions and isn't an Islamic invention, but it is an important factor in the success of Islam.

Something only transmitted orally can change over time, but something written will be identical a thousand years from now, and with modern printing presses, can be reproduced in the billions, giving it an enormous advantage in spreading identical copies of the idea-collection.

2. The Quran includes instructions for its own spread. It tells believers they must spread Islam. It is their holy duty to bring Mohammad's warnings and Islamic law to every corner of the world. Read more about that.

3. The idea-collection includes instructions for its own preservation, protection, and replication fidelity. The Quran, the most important of the Islamic holy books, directly tells its followers that they can never change or modify or "modernize" any of the teachings within the idea-collection. It is perfect as it is. It is a capital sin to try to do so. This idea ensures the preservation of the whole collection.

These first three ideas are pretty standard for several successful religions. But now it gets interesting...

4. Islam commands its followers to create a government that supports it. This may be one of the most ingenious ideas in the whole collection. Islam is the only religion that uses it. Other groups of religious people have had political aspirations, but no other major religious group orders its followers — as a religious duty to create a government that follows its own system of law.

Islam has a system of law, called Sharia, and all Muslims are obligated to continually strive to make their government — wherever they are — follow it. Because of some of the other ideas added to Islam, you will see that this political addition to the idea-collection has significant consequences. Not only is this perhaps Islam's most brilliant innovation, it is also the most terrifying to non-Muslims. Read more about the political nature of the core doctrines of Islam.

5. Permission to spread the religion by war. This is another brilliant innovation. Although some other religions have spread themselves using force, they had very little justification from their own religious doctrines to do so.

Not so with Islam. Expanding by conquest is very much accepted and encouraged by the idea-collection. Islamic teachings present it this way: The poor non-Muslims not living in an Islamic state need to be saved from the sin of following laws other than Allah's. If they won't voluntarily change their laws to Sharia, then it is the duty of Muslim warriors to insist. The world cannot be at peace until every government on earth follows the laws of Allah.

Mohammad's own experience showed the example — an example, says the Quran 91 times, that every Muslim should follow. At first, Mohammad tried to spread Islam by peaceful means. After thirteen years he had a paltry 150 converts.

But then he changed tactics and started using warfare, slaughter, executions, and assassination, and within ten years he converted tens of thousands, and after he died, they used the same tactics and converted millions. And by simple population increase, it is now over a billion.

The use of warfare combines synergistically and powerfully with the instruction to create an Islamic state. So Islam spread quickly as their armies got bigger. They conquered and set up Islamic states, most of which have lasted to this day, and the laws within an Islamic state make Islam very difficult to dislodge. The laws also make it very advantageous to individual people to convert to Islam, and penalize those who don't.

This is one of the most effective methods ever invented for getting an idea-collection into huge numbers of minds. It's a method of control and indoctrination similar to those used successfully in communist and totalitarian states. But as you'll discover below, Islam makes unique use of the power of the law to enforce complete conversion to the religion.

6. Lands must be conquered. Lands that Islam has lost must be reconquered, like Spain and Israel, for example. The Islamic empire must continually expand. Contraction is bad, expansion is good. So if a land was once Islamic and now it is not, that's contraction, and must be remedied.

According to Islamic teachings, the earth is Allah's. If there are parts of the earth not following Islamic law, it is the duty of the faithful to gain control of that land and establish Sharia. It is a sin to let it be.

7. The idea-collection provides for new soldiers by allowing polygamy. A Muslim man can marry up to four wives, and he can have sex with as many slave girls as he wishes.

The Quran especially encourages men to marry widows. This is an important idea to add if you are going to be losing a lot of soldiers in war. You need some way of replenishing your army. Otherwise the idea-collection could die out from a lack of offspring. Read more about this principle.

8. It is a punishable offense to criticize Islam. You can see why this one is a good supporting idea for the collection. It helps suppress any ideas that would reduce the authority of Islamic ideas. This one, like many of the others, is good for the idea-collection, but bad for people. This one limits freedom of speech. This idea is in the Quran, and Mohammad set a fierce example of punishing people who criticized him or Islam. The punishment was usually death. Read more about this principle.

9. You can't leave Islam once you're in. This is an interesting one. It is actually illegal in Islamic states to convert out of Islam. This is a critical part of Sharia law. Someone who has rejected Islam who was once a Muslim is an "apostate." This is a crime and a sin, and the punishment for it is death (and eternal damnation in hell thereafter).

Obviously, you can see why this idea has been included in the collection, but this one has actually caused Islam a problem because those who are following Islam to the letter consider more "moderate" Muslims (those who want to ignore or alter the more violent passages of the Quran) to be apostates. Since the punishment for apostates is death, fundamentalist Muslims are fighting modernizing Muslims all over the world, and keeping many rebellious, modernizing Muslims (or MINOs) from speaking up for fear of death.

Every time a group of Muslims decides that maybe Islam should be updated for the 21st century and maybe women should have some rights or maybe the government should be more democratic, the devout Muslims call them apostates and discredit them or even try to kill them.

The idea-collection protects its own fidelity (the original idea-collection cannot be altered). This is not good for the organisms (the Muslim human beings), but it's great for the collection.

Another idea in Sharia law says it's against the law for anyone to try to convert a Muslim to another religion.

10. Islam must be your first allegiance. This is a great idea to add to the collection if the goal is world domination. You are a Muslim first, before any allegiance you give to your family, your tribe, or your country.

This does two things: It causes a unity of people across borders which allows the group to grow bigger than any other entity. In other words, the "Nation of Islam" can grow bigger than any country, no matter how large (which gives the group a massive numerical advantage).

11. Dying while fighting for Islam is the ONLY way to guarantee a man's entrance into Paradise. This is a great idea for creating fearless, enthusiastic warriors, especially given the Quran's vivid descriptions of the sensuous delights of Paradise.

A Muslim man has a chance of getting to Paradise if he is a good Muslim, but it is not guaranteed. However, if he dies while fighting for Islam, he is guaranteed to get in, and that's the only thing he can do to guarantee it.

12. You must read the Quran in Arabic. This unites believers by language, and language is a very powerful unifying phenomenon. For added incentive to learn Arabic, another idea in the collection says you can't go to Paradise unless you pray in Arabic.

So all Muslims all over the world share a language. This makes it easier to coordinate far-reaching campaigns of protest, political pressure, and war. I doubt if Mohammad foresaw this possibility, but this idea is brilliant, even if it was an accident. Read more about this principle.

13. You must pray five times a day. This is one of the five "pillars" — that is, one of the five central practices — of Islam. Within an Islamic state, it is enforced by law. Every Muslim must pray five times a day. The practice helps the idea-collection dominate a Muslim's life, infusing his daily rhythm with Islam.

It would be impossible to forget anything you deliberately do so often. Five times a day, every day, a Muslim must bow down and pray to Allah.

Research has shown the more effort a person expends for a cause, the more he is likely to believe in it and value it. So this is a good way to eventually make believers out of people who became Muslims through coercion.

Islam completely takes over every aspect of Muslims' lives. Not only are they required to pray five times a day, they have to go through a washing ritual beforehand. Islam dictates the laws, and the laws cover many public and private behaviors. In an Islamic state, it is impossible to be a casual Muslim.

14. The prayers involve moving together in time. When Muslims pray, they all face the same direction, they bow down, get on their hands and knees, and put their face on the mat, all in unison, and then rise back up. Again and again.

When people move together in time, whether dancing or marching or praying, it creates a physical and emotional bond between them. That's why all military training involves close-order drill (marching in unison), even though it has been a long time since military groups have actually marched into combat. There is no longer a need for the skill, but military training retained the practice because it is so effective at creating a strong feeling of unity between soldiers (read more about that).

The same is true of any physical movements people make in unison. So the method of prayer in Islam is a unifying idea added to the collection.

15. A woman is in a thoroughly subordinate position. This idea really helps support other ideas in the collection, like five and six. If women had too much influence, they'd try to curb the warring. Women in general don't like to send their husbands and sons off to war. But if women have no say, then the rest of the ideas can express themselves without interference. By subordinating women, the idea-collection prevents their effective vote against war, violence, and conquest.

The rules and laws within Islam that keep women subordinate are numerous. For example, she is not allowed to leave her house unless she is accompanied by a male relative. Under Islamic law, a woman is forbidden to be a head of state or a judge. She can only inherit half of what a man can inherit. In court, her testimony is only worth half of a man's. She is not allowed to choose where she will live or who she will marry. She is not allowed to marry a non-Muslim or divorce her husband. He, however, can divorce her with a wave of his hand. And according to Sharia, he can (and should) beat her if she disobeys him.

All of these ideas keep her subordinate, which helps keep the war machine going unimpeded by domestic rebellion.

16. The only way a woman can get into Paradise for sure is if her husband is happy with her when she dies.
When I read about this one, I thought, "Mohammad, you are a crafty one."

This idea obviously helps with the subjugation of women. It motivates her to subjugate herself. It gives her a strong incentive to subordinate her wishes to her husband's, because while she might have a chance to get into Paradise if she's a good Muslim, the only way she can guarantee she will go to Paradise (and avoid eternal suffering in hell) is to make sure her husband is happy with her when she dies.

17. Allah gives Himself permission to edit his own work. This is an interesting one. It says in the Quran that if a passage written later contradicts an earlier passage, then the later one is the better one (read more about this). The Quran was written in sections (Mohammad's revelations, each written as a sura or chapter) over a period of 23 years. The circumstances of Mohammad's life and his religion changed quite a bit over those 23 years.

One of the ideas in the Quran is "this is the word of Allah." People had already memorized his earlier revelations, so Mohammad couldn't just change his revelations. It would look a little strange for the all-knowing, infinitely wise Allah to change something He had already said.

But with this new idea — that later revelations abrogated or overwrote any earlier revelations they contradicted — Allah's methods could change as Mohammad found more effective ideas.

As I pointed out earlier, in his first 13 years of peacefully preaching, Mohammad only managed to win 150 followers. But as a military leader and violent conqueror, he was able to subjugate all of Arabia to Islamic law in less than 10 years. The peaceful ways were too slow. Conversion by conquering and establishing Sharia was much faster and more efficient. So later, violent, intolerant verses abrogate the earlier peaceful, tolerant passages. Read more about which passages were abrogated and what the last passages say.

18. The Quran uses the carrot and stick to reinforce behavior. Throughout the book are vivid descriptions of hell, where sinners and non-Muslims will have to drink boiling, stinking water, will be thrown face down into a raging fire, and will be there for eternity, suffering endless torments in agony. Read more about this.

There are also vivid descriptions of Paradise. In Paradise, it says, believers will wear green silk robes and recline on plush couches. Trees will shade them, fruit will dangle nearby. They'll have tasty food and refreshing drinks served in silver goblets. To have a chance of achieving this, they must be devout Muslims. To guarantee it, they must die in jihad (for men) or make sure their husbands are always happy with them (for women).

19. It provides a huge and inspiring goal. Leaders of countries or companies or religions have all discovered that you can get the most motivation and enthusiasm from your followers if you provide them with an expansive vision — an enormous goal. In the Islamic idea-collection, the goal calls for a continuous effort to expand the domain of Islamic law until all the world is subjugated to it.

Many religions have the goal of converting everyone, but Islam has a method available nobody else has: To expand by seizing and converting governments to Sharia.

Once the whole world is Islamic, peace will reign. That's why even terrorists can say with complete sincerity, "Islam is a religion of peace."

The Quran says it is best if non-believers accept Islam and become Muslims without force. But if they refuse, then you must fight them and conquer them and save their poor souls by insisting they live by the laws of Allah. Read more about this.

Once all countries are conquered, the world will be at peace. Therefore, Islam is a religion of peace.

It is an enormous and inspiring goal, and a strongly unifying purpose. It creates motivated, enthusiastic followers.

20. Non-Muslims must pay a large tax. Once Muslims conquer a country and convert the government to Islamic law, any non-Muslims have the choice between becoming Muslim or becoming a dhimmi. Dhimmis are allowed to practice their non-Muslim religion if they pay the jizya (a tax). If they convert to Islam, they no longer have to pay a tax, so there is a practical incentive to convert. Read more.

But another aspect of this makes it a brilliant idea to add to the collection. The tax takes money away from the non-Muslims and their competing idea-collections and gives that money to support Islam. This is pure genius!

The income from these taxes (usually a 25% income tax) helped fund the Islamic conquests during the first two major jihads. They conquered vast lands, most of them already filled with Christians and Jews, many of whom did not convert at first, and their jizya poured huge sums of money into the Islamic war machine.

Eventually, the numbers of Christians and Jews dwindled down as they converted or escaped, until now, in most Islamic countries, Jews and Christians are very small minorities.

The tax-the-non-Muslims idea helps the Islamic idea-collection make more copies of itself by suppressing competing religious idea-collections and financially supporting Islam.

Several ideas within Sharia law extend this effect. For example, non-Muslims are not allowed to build any new houses of worship. They're not even allowed to repair already-existing churches or synagogues. This puts the houses of worship of any competing idea-collection in a state of permanent decline. Brilliant.

Also, non-Islamic prayers cannot be spoken within earshot of a Muslim — again, preventing Muslims from being infected by a competing religion. No public displays of any symbols of another faith may be shown either.

All of this prevents the spread of any competing religion, and makes competing idea-collections die out over time. That's why today there are so many "Muslim countries." Almost every other country in the world is made up of many different religions.

One added idea makes it that much easier for Muslims to dominate non-Muslims within an Islamic state: Non-Muslims are not allowed to own weapons of any kind. To subjugate a people, all dictatorial rulers in the history of the world have done the same thing: Disarm the subjugated people. They are much easier to manage, less dangerous, and less capable of upending the status quo.

21. A Muslim is forbidden to make friends with an infidel. A Muslim is allowed to pretend to be a friend, but in his heart he must never actually be a friend to a non-Muslim. This is one of the best protections Islam has against Muslims leaving the faith because in every other religion conversions to the religion are usually made because a friend introduced it. Being forbidden to make friends with infidels effectively prevents that from happening. (See Quran quotes about this.)

22. The Quran counsels the use of deceit when dealing with infidels. Mohammad instructed one of his followers to lie if he had to (in order to assassinate one of Mohammad's enemies). The principle was clear: If it helps Islam, it's okay to deceive non-Muslims. Read more.

This principle has served Islamic goals very well through history. And it serves those goals today. On the DVD, Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, you can watch real-life examples of Islamic leaders saying one thing in English for the Western press, and saying something entirely different to their own followers in Arabic a few days later.

Deceiving the enemy is always useful in war, and Islam is at war with the non-Islamic world until the whole world follows Sharia law. All non-Muslims living in non-Islamic states are enemies. So deceiving Westerners is totally acceptable. It is encouraged if it can forward the goals of the spread of Islam.

And so we have the strange phenomenon covered by Steven Emerson in Terrorists Among Us, where organizations in America were ostensibly raising money for orphans, but really giving the money to terrorists. They deceived good-hearted Western infidels into giving money to organizations that were actively killing Western infidels. As it says in the Quran, "War is deceit." This idea gives Islam a tremendous advantage over idea-collections that encourage indiscriminate truthfulness. Read more about the Islamic concept of "religious deception" here.

23. Islam must always be defended. This idea is a primary linchpin that gives justification for war with almost anybody, as you'll see in the idea below. After the enemy is defeated, of course, Muslims are required to establish an Islamic state.

24. Islamic writings teach the use of pretext to start wars. The Quran devotes a lot of time complaining about people who did not support Mohammad when he first started his religion, with Allah often condemning them to torment in hell in the hereafter. The Quran is intensely intolerant of non-Muslims (source).

Mohammad was rather pushy and insistent with his religion, and when others felt intruded upon and protested, Mohammad took that to mean they were trying to stop Allah's holy prophet from bringing the revealed word of Allah to the world, so he was justified to fight them and destroy them as Allah's enemies. This is a demonstration of the principle of pretext.

Non-Muslims of the world need urgently to become aware of this principle. Of all the ideas in the Islamic collection, this is the most dangerous to the West because it removes our natural self-preserving defenses. The use of pretext tends to make the West defenseless against the Islamic invasion now underway. Muslim terrorists are not naive people. They are smart, educated, well-funded, and being used by a very clever idea-collection.

The invasion of the West is underway, and it is being done so cleverly, most Westerners don't even know it is happening. (Read more about their 20-year plan to overthrow the government of the United States. Also, read about the Shariatization of Europe.)

The use of pretext means you need only the barest excuse to begin hostilities. It means you're actually looking for an excuse, and even trying to provoke others into striking the first blow ("starting" the hostilities).

If the only way to get to Paradise is dying while fighting for Islam, you need war. And if it is your holy duty to make all governments use Sharia law, you need to conquer those governments. But you don't really want to look like the aggressor. Appearances count. All throughout the Quran, Mohammad tries to justify his aggression as defending Islam.

The Quran repeats 91 times that followers of Islam should use Mohammad as a model and imitate him. So Muslims the world over try to find or create grievances, so they can get a holy war started, so they can fight and die in Allah's cause and help make the world ruled by Allah's laws.

And because of the rise of multiculturalism (respect for all other cultures) in the West, the use of pretext is very effective against people who are unfamiliar with Islam. Many people think al Qaeda is angry at the West for having troops in Saudi Arabia, for example. That's merely a pretext. They want all non-Muslims out of the Middle East. Then they say they will cease hostilities. It is a ridiculous and impossible goal, so they are justified in permanent war against the West.

It's surprising that so many Westerners accept this particular pretext because it flies in the face of a fundamental Western principle: Equality. What Osama bin Laden is saying is "infidels are so undeserving, their very presence defiles our holy places." Wow. What does that say about the non-Muslims?

Why doesn't this kind of racism or prejudice or infidelphobia (or whatever you want to call it) outrage more Westerners? Instead, many think we ought to pull out of the Middle East so these poor offended Islamic supremacists aren't so angry with us any more!

The principle of pretext means you try to provoke a hostile reaction and then use the hostile reaction as a reason to escalate hostilities. It's the same method schoolyard bullies have used for thousands of years: "What are you looking at? You got a problem?! You wanna take it outside, punk?"

25. The explicit use of double standards. Islam has one standard for Muslims, and a different standard for non-Muslims, which always gives the advantage to Muslims and within a Muslim country, it provides incentives to convert.

For example, Islam must be spread by its believers, wherever they are. But when other religions try to spread their own idea-collection, Muslims are supposed to see it as an aggression against Islam — an act of aggression that must be "defended." Remember, Islam must always be defended.

Another example of how the double standard idea gives Islam an advantage: When Islam is defamed in any way, Muslims should violently defend it. Even in a cartoon. But Muslims can and should defame Jews and Christians in Muslim newspapers and television, and they should defame any infidel or enemy, as they defame the U.S. today.

Here's another example: The Islamic supremacists of Saudi Arabia are pouring money into building mosques all over the world. But according to Sharia law, which is the law in Saudi Arabia, no non-Muslim religious structures are allowed to be built.

Muslims all over the world protest loudly and violently when anyone in Europe or America resists the building of more mosques in their countries.

Islamic supremacists don't see the irony in it. They don't feel strange having such an obvious double standard. They are, after all, Allah's followers and everyone else is deluded. Fairness and equality with such unworthy infidels would seem very out of place. A double standard seems completely appropriate from that perspective.

The double standard principle is a key part of the idea-collection, and it has been a great advantage in the spread of Islam (and the suppression of competing religions).

Fifty-one percent of the Quran is about non-Muslims and how to deal with them. Not one verse in the Quran about non-Muslims is positive (source).

26. It is forbidden to kill a Muslim (except for a just cause). It is not forbidden to kill an infidel. This causes a bond between Muslims, fear in non-Muslims, and motivation to become Muslim. This is also another example of an explicit Islamic double standard.

27. If Muslims drift away from Mohammad's teachings, Allah will end the world. That makes converting others and promoting Islam a matter of survival. It also motivates Muslims to prevent each other from losing faith.

28. The message in a standard Quran is difficult to decipher. Whether it was done intentionally or not, the Quran's message has been scrambled and in a sense, coded. This discourages almost all non-Muslims and a significant percentage of Muslims from understanding it.

In what way is the message scrambled? First, the chapters are published out of order in every standard Quran. Rather than printing them using the chronological order in which they were revealed, the 114 chapters (suras) of the Quran are arranged using a baffling method: They're arranged in order from the longest chapter to the shortest. That's the traditional order.

When you read a standard Quran straight through like a normal book, the message is disjointed and the story jumps around and seems contradictory. One very important consequence of this curious disorder is that it hides the clear progression from Mohammad's semi-tolerance of non-Muslims to his violent hatred toward them.

The disorder also prevents anyone from figuring out which passages are abrogated unless they know the chronological order of the Quran.

The second way the Quran has been put into code is by putting the key somewhere else. Much of the Quran cannot be understood without being familiar with the life of Mohammad (by reading the Sira and the Hadith). These are primarily about Mohammad — what he said and did.

In other words, the Quran — the source book, the single most important holy book in Islam — can't be understood without the key, and the key can only be found somewhere else, which is similar to one of the ways a message can be written in code: Put the key to understanding the message somewhere else besides including it in the message. This is enough to keep most non-Muslims from understanding the Quran, and also keeps most Muslims on a need-to-know basis. So the only ones who really know what's going on are the imams and the scholars. They call the shots. Everyone else is in the dark.

If the Quran wasn't put in code deliberately, it has been a tremendously fortuitous accident which has served the goals of Islam very well throughout history. Fortunately, someone has unscrambled the Quran for us. Read more about that here.


Okay, we can admire the brilliance of the Islamic idea-collection in an abstract, intellectual sort of way, but it is terrifyingly real. Millions of people try to follow these ideas to the letter. And their belief in the idea-collection is strongly supported by the side-effects of Sharia law. By making the government and laws ruled by Islam, the idea-collection applies two powerful principles of influence: social proof, and authority.

Everyone practices the religion in an Islamic state (or they are flogged, taxed, or killed) and no one can criticize it, not friend-to-friend, and not through any media. The psychological impact of this is enormous. Three generations later, it would be almost impossible for any Muslim living in that state to think outside of Islam. The authority and social proof would be overwhelming.

Of course, just because I admire the genius of the idea-collection doesn't mean I'm in favor of it. As a non-Muslim, I am wholeheartedly against it. Remember, the success of an idea-collection has nothing to do with making people happy or healthy. "Success" only means it propagates well.

The same is true for genes. A successful gene is one that gets the most copies of itself into future generations. The genes making up a deadly virus may kill millions of people and cause untold misery, but from a genetic point of view, the virus is successful. Genes don't care about people. They don't try to make us happy. They are cold and indifferent to our plight.

Same with ideas. An idea-collection will use up and spit out human lives in the service of its propagation, indifferent to the pain, misery, or death it causes.

An idea-collection, well-drilled into someone's head and reinforced by the powerful authority and social proof of his whole society, can cause him to blow himself up just to kill others for the fulfillment of a fantasy goal of ultimately attaining world peace and the triumph of Allah (and a harem of 72 dark-eyed voluptuous beauties devoted to his every wish).

The Islamic idea-collection is formidable. It is a force to be reckoned with and we ignore it at our peril. It has already taken hold of the minds and lives of almost one and a half billion people, and it's the youngest of the major religions.

And yet, I don't think the situation is hopeless. Many Muslims now living in Islamic states are trapped and would defect from Islam if it were safe to do so.

The first thing we in the multicultural and tolerant West need to do is help each other become aware of the formidable idea-collection threatening to overtake us. We need to help our fellow citizens awaken to the fact that orthodox Muslims will deliberately take advantage of our tolerance and our freedom so as to ultimately eliminate it.

This is an ideological war, so the ideas in the heads of your fellow Westerners makes all the difference. And you can help turn the tide. Find ways to introduce this information to your fellow non-Muslims. Here are a few ideas to help you.

You will be shocked at how little most people know about Islam. And they will be shocked to find out. And when enough non-Muslims know about it, Islamic tactics like pretext and deceit will be seen for what they are, and will no longer make us defenseless. When we know more about the founder (the one all Muslims should imitate) and the goals of Islam, our collective decisions and actions can effectively thwart their plans. Our collective grasp of the real situation will bring more rational changes to our laws and policies.

But to do this kind of inoculation, you have to have a pretty good handle on the Islamic teachings. That will require some study. I know you have other things to do, and you can't make this a full-time occupation, but I also know how serious this is, so it will require some sacrifice on your part.

I have created a curriculum of sorts. I tried to figure out what would be the material you could study that would give you the most critical knowledge in the easiest way with the smallest investment of time. You can see my curriculum here.

Study that material, and start right away. After millions of people have fought against tyranny and died to gain the rights and freedoms we enjoy today, we are now confronted with a pernicious idea-collection hell-bent on taking them away. And the Islamic idea-collection could realistically succeed with terrifying brilliance.

Take action today. Learn about Islam. With every new understanding you have, and with every new certainty and clarity you gain, you will feel bolder in speaking up, and speaking up is the first thing we must do to win.

Here's a downloadable and printable PDF version of The Terrifying Brilliance of Islam (free).

The creator of Islam Exposed wrote a reference article on The Terrifying Brilliance of Islam to provide links and quotes from Islamic doctrine that support the principles above: Terrifying Brilliance of Islam: Amplification of Key Concepts.

If you don't already know much about Islam and you're skeptical about what you've just read, I suggest you listen to an ex-Muslim woman: Nonie Darwish Speaks to Berkeley. And if you're still skeptical, you should read the Quran and find out for yourself what's true or not.

I have also created a version of the above article edited for readers who know nothing about Islam so you can share the information a little easier. Check it out: What Makes Islam So Successful?

She is wearing a black rag outfit and talking about the "prayer rug" and "call to prayer clock" she bought for her children. The Muslims ARE superior to her because she is an idiot dhimwit. I have not seen this in the media at all.

Thank you, Kurtlane. Yes, I've heard of memetics. This article was originally published as The Terrifying Brilliance of the Islamic Memeplex.

I read your original essay a year or two ago;and found it of A star quality.
Instead of desultry comments on the unnatractive mores of Islam ;there is contained in a few

It's powerful, and couched in language that anyone can understand.
The pdf format would be very helpful as a means of awakening the dangerous complacency ;which seems to abound.
I will do my best to promote it by

Your comments are quite accurate, as this Saudi "Chief Justice" affirms:

" will not find any organization past or present, religious or nonreligious as regards (Jihad and military) (ordering) the whole nation to march forth and mobilize all of them. into active military service as a single row for Jihad in Allah's Cause so as to make superior the Word of Allah (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), as you will find in the Islamic Religion and its teachings."

This is one of the best pieces on Islam I've ever read. Without hiding a thing, your piece is nevertheless completely without any tone of hate. It sounds mild and educational. There is no sarcasm. And the fact that you use the concept of memes gives your analysis a sort of scientific style that comports well with the non-emotional, non-hating mood. I was familiar with everything in the piece, but your work helps me to get a much better handle on it. I'm going to be reading your site more. Thank you.

There will be no peace even if the world is converted. The first acts of violence after freeing Iraq was revenge killing of fellow Muslims for old grudges. Next Imams who want to be "The Leader" have their followers kill the followers of other Imams. So each Imam want to be king and will continue killing others until they are king. Western Civilization went through this in the Middle Ages.

Excellent analysis of Islam. Yet, there are those who say that we shouldn't oppose mosque-building in this country. They forget the larger picture, which is, as the author stresses, an ideological war between totalitarian Islam and the Western ideas of political and individual liberty.

For anyone who doubts the true purpose of the Ground Zero mosque, or questions its purpose, I suggest they read Amil Imani’s excellent article, “Understanding the Muslims’ Mindset.” Imani is an Iranian expatriate who dissects the authoritarian psychology of all Muslims (Sunni, Shiite, and in between) and why they are so passive and silent in the face of violent and stealth jihad waged by their brethren. The Cordoba mosque will not only be a flipping off of America, but will serve as another madrassa for the jihadists. Go here for Imani’s article: Required reading for all dhimmis, kaffirs, and those who refuse to become dhimmis or kaffirs and glory in their role as “infidels.” I also recommend an excellent article by Raymond Ibrahim, “The Two Faces of the Ground Zero Mosque” on Pajamas Media.

These essays, together with "Terrifying Brilliance," should be required reading for anyone concerned about and alert to the peril posed by Islam.


Citizen Warrior 11:46 AM  

Someone emailed the following comment (and sent me a PDF version of this article, thank you very much):

I like your analysis.

Here is my concise opinion:

The Imperialistic superiority status that Islam is seeking as both a religion and a way of life, which goal is to bring into submission the entire world, is deeply-rooted in the inferiority complex of people who cannot achieve any significant contribution to the modern science, technology, culture and humanity, ironically, because of their strict and submissive following of Islam.

Islam is not a true monotheistic religion, but more like a cult of Mohammad, hiding behind Allah - the name of one of 360 gods that were worshiped by Arab tribes in pre-Islamic period.

"HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED why millions of Muslim men are dedicated to killing Americans?"

I know 'millions' has sort of become a synonym for 'lots' but millions of, essentially, active terrorists dedicated to killing Americans? Tens of thousands certainly, but millions?

Citizen Warrior 11:28 AM  

An audio version is a great idea. Would anyone like to volunteer to create one for me?

About the "millions:" I didn't mean "a whole lot." I meant at least two million. And that is a conservative estimate. The number who are dedicated to killing Americans is hard to quantify. Perhaps the word that should be changed is "dedicated." Just how dedicated are they? Some are in training camps. Some are in sleeper cells inside American borders already. Some only dream of it "some day." And many tens or even hundreds of millions support it, encourage it, or help finance it.

Anonymous 12:12 AM  


it would be nice if you added the sources, like the sura(s) that refers to the corresponding idea.


Citizen Warrior 1:09 AM  

Yes, I agree. That would be nice. Unfortunately, I'm not a scholar, and although I know those principles of Islam are valid (I only wrote them down if the source was a good one) I didn't write down the source.

Someday I hope an Islamic scholar will come along and list the numbers of each idea with its corresponding chapter and verse. I know Robert Spencer could do it, but he's a busy man.

Anonymous 11:43 AM  

I came by this article by chance and I am very glad I did. I am not a religios person and truly think that teaching kids any religion as a must as child abuse. However, I respect everyone who respects me as a non-believer. Muslims can not be talked to for all the reasons in this article, and this is a big problem. I have asked many Muslims and Mulas about a few simple issues and never got a reply:
1. Why would anyone want to go to Heaven if you never meet your loved ones? Just to have sex and drink wine?
2. Why would women be Muslims as there is nothing in the Quran to offer them in Heaven. Would they also sleep with virgin girls?
3. Finally, if everyone is a virgin in Heaven, what happens after they sleep with each other, do they still remain virgins? If so, why would anyone want to go through that trouble again?

It is clearly nonsense and all Muslims are preoccupied with sex and "sins". The largest consumer of porn are muslims when they come West and you just have to look where are "escort" cards posted throughout European cities. Where the largest Muslim population is. West is very tolerant and it is time to stop this as if we don't wake up, we will be no more.

Anonymous 12:41 PM  

I think you are leaving one important factor out also; the ease in which you can convert to islam if you are coming from a different background, along with the strictness and clear guidelines that islam put forth for how you should live your life.

A lot of other religions can be way more vague or fuzzy, and also have higher thresholds for conversion.

This goes along with the fact that a lot of the kind of people who are "vulnerable to religiosity" and go "religion surfing" (i.e. feel disillusioned with their current belief or view the society in which they live as "in decline" and that e.g. christianity no longer can do a good job of keeping stuff in order), often end up with islam as they claim it "made most sense" to them.

Each time I hear this I'm just a puzzled as the previous time, but I guess they are just saying that "I need strict rules for how to live my life". Combine that with the easy conversion (say the shahada and "mean it"), and you've got a potent combo.

Citizen Warrior 2:25 PM  

Maybe we could consider this number 27. I read about it in the book THOUGHT CONTAGION:

If Muslims drift away from Mohammed's teachings, Allah will end the world. That makes converting others and promoting Islam a matter of survival. It also motivates Muslims, as the author points out, "to dissuade each other from losing faith."

GordonHide 5:37 AM  

Many of the features you quote as strengths of Islam are also weaknesses. You should think on why it is that so many states where Islam is the majority religion are dysfunctional compared to Western democracies.

In my view you need to have a lack of faith in Western democracy to believe that Islam can present a credible threat beyond terrorism.

Muslims are caught in a time warp which poisons their efforts to compete with freer societies. Did you know that there have been only two Muslim Nobel laureates in science? Both of these received their higher education in the West.
If there had been over a billion Danes, for instance, they would have earned over 1400 science Nobel laureates .

Citizen Warrior 1:20 AM  

Someone posted this article on and it provoked some interesting comments. One person said that "millions" of Muslim men wanting to kill Americans might be an overgeneralization. Someone responded with this:

Simply saying "millions" need not imply a generalization of any kind.

There are approximately 1.57 billion Muslims in the world.

The phrase "millions" is far from precise, but one needs at least 2 million units for it to be accurate. Therefore, a statement like "Millions of Muslim men are dedicated to X" is true if 1 in 785 Muslim men is dedicated to X. That's about 0.127%

Now, while I can't testify to the specifics of the claim, namely, the desire of this percentage of Muslim men to kill "millions of Americans", I think a quick look at any data whatsoever indicates that it is, in all likelihood, true.

For example, in 2002, the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press published a so called "Global Attitudes Project". One of the questions asked to over 38,000 Muslims was "Is suicide bombing in defense of Islam ever justifiable?" Sam Harris has an analysis of this in The End of Faith, in Chapter 4.

The numbers show answers, from largely Muslim countries, in the affirmative with percents ranging from 82% (Lebanon) to 20% (Turkey).

I submit that one is not "Making General Statements of An Entire Population" in stating that millions of Muslim men are dedicated to killing Americans, since that need imply only 0.127% of support of such an idea. Any corrections to this line of argument are welcome.

Citizen Warrior 1:29 AM  

Okay, here's one more comment from the Dawkins site:

If you think it's offensive to point out the obvious regarding "millions" of Muslims: get a clue. Either you're being willfully dishonest or you're lacking a basic high school numerical education.

For instance, focusing just on the case of Pakistan, let's take a look at the Pew Global Attitudes Project 2009. It seems that at the very minimum, 9% of Muslims support Al Qaeda and 27% support the Taliban. With a population of 170 million, that's very easily into the millions of fundamentalist Muslims who want to kill Americans. And that's just taking the case of Pakistan. No doubt other Muslim-majority nations are even worse. (Actually, the statistics for British Muslims are maybe just as bad.)

And here's a link to the Pew document (it's a PDF):

And here's a link to the Muslim Poll (also a PDF):

I don't think it is overstated. It depends on how you define "dedicated." However, I am working on another version of this piece, one that others can share with people who are new to the information, and I have altered that first sentence accordingly. Check it out:

The Unsettling Brilliance of Islam

I am guessing your motivation to convince me to change it is so you can share the information with others. So I recommend you use the newer version.

GordonHide 6:45 PM  

Citizen Warrior:- “I am guessing your motivation to convince me to change it is so you can share the information with others.”

And I’m guessing that you didn’t read my earlier post. I think you’re whole approach, although based on reasonably good data, contains conclusions which are not merited and overlook the glaring shortcomings, from a Muslim’s point of view, of the very Islamic traits of which you believe we should all be frightened.

Islam is just another failed philosophy in terms of relevance to the real world. Its danger to us is the fact that so many people, indoctrinated at a young age to value scripture above critical thinking and real evidence, are easily manipulated to act in ways counter to their own interests.

Islam is not the “monolithic, effective formula for world takeover” you have represented but it is an insidious source of terrorism and megalomaniac politicians. Both these represent serious enough problems for the modern world without your exaggerations. Rousing rabble against straw man caricatures is not the way to go.

Citizen Warrior 7:36 PM  

You're right about one thing, GordonHide: Although I read your earlier post at the time you posted it, I have gotten so many comments on all my blogs since then, I didn't remember what your motivations were.

Terrorism and despots are the least of our worries, in my opinion. I think the non-violent methods are more dangerous. Check out Robert Spencer's "Stealth Jihad" and Waging Jihad by Gaining Concessions to see what I mean.

Dear CW,

You are correct to say 'millions' of Muslims wish to fight America and Israel. Out of over one billion people, there are 1-2% of Muslims who are militant. What they lack is a galvanizing leader.
When a charismatic leader shows up, they will march.

The critics of your well and simply written explanation of political Islam...well...they are quite naive about the popularity of jihad, the universal, totalitarian caliphate and other central ideas of Islam. Because it is PERFECT, Islam cannot be changed.

Rarian Rakista 1:58 PM  

Christianity suffers the same problem, namely a religion built the authority of a singular sky daddy promising a better life if you act like a good Christian/Muslim/Jew in this life. Where good can be defined in all religions as killing the 'other' and we have seen instances where all 3 religions have been used in this way. Don't blame Muhammad, blame Abraham.

I agree. Lets fight Islam. Only problem, how can one credibly fight a set of irrational ideas if one
still maintains another set, perhaps less problematic, but equally irrational? That makes it hard to make
your point. How, for example, to you fight for the separation of church and state in Islamic countries?
Bribe key leaders with US money, every penny of which has an "In God we Trust" exhortation on it? Do you
think a sufficiently well armed and funded army of Christian missionaries could do the job? Difficult to
fight a four alarm fire with a three alarm fire. You have to fight it with cold water. Cold reason in this case.

I notice that the article talks about how a set of ideas has a life of it's own, and a certain survival of
the fittest growth pattern. That pretty well states the case for how irrationality grows like a cancer on
the group mind set.

Dear Citizen Warrior, allow me to thank you for the work you are doing. Because of your work, I have materials that I can and have shared with people who have asked me to make presentations about Islam. I am not a Muslim but rather a Christian. I find that your work helps me with a starting point and with a way that helps Christians appreciate the ideology that we face. It is too time consuming to write too much here just know that your work is appreciated. The most important thing I can do is make information available to my Christian friends and I do it in the best way that I can. One of the most startling things to my Christian friends is to read the Koran where Muslims are told not to speak the word or concept of Trinity. I have come to see two major unreconcilable issues among others but they are ones that Christians can understand. My blog and sidebar were messed up and I am now rebuilding but I link to the Brilliance of Islam which sends folks to other efforts. We are going to be forced to face some hard truths that go against our belief system but we'll have no choices if we are to survive. Thank you for what you do.

I find almost all blind devotion to any one set of ideas frightening.
In my own life I have learned that the old adage "Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear." is probably the best advice anyone can follow.
Research everything yourself, from more than one source as every source is going to have an agenda of some kind. You need to gather as much information as you can in order to formulate your own opinion. Only in this way can a person not fall victim to the will of another person's power of persuasion. Even something as common place as advertising can not be taken at face value.
A retailer advertises to persuade you to spend your money at their place of business. Their goal is to become wealthy collecting the money of others in exchange for their goods or services; a religion persuades you to follow their set of rules/procedures/ceremonies to accomplish it's goal. It's goal can be and usually is much more difficult to determine with any kind of certainty. Often the people in high ranking positions in any given religion hold conflicting views on just what the religion is trying to accomplish.
In short the most dangerous thing we face today is the same as the most dangerous thing faced by people since we began living in tribes;
these 2 things are a dangerous blend.
Add a leadership that can speak well and people that lack knowledge can become a mob;
A mob is blind to all but the rage at it's core.

Knowledge is the key to saving everything from money to lives.

But Knowledge has a cost;
that cost is effort.
It takes effort to learn something new.

Sadly many people in the world are just too apathetic to put fourth the effort to learn anything and accept the answers that are handed to them by what ever source maybe recommended by their peers.

everyone needs to read more.
read more, fight less, and remember a closed mouth gathers no foot.

Dhimmitude Ishere 1:26 AM  

As with other commentators, I came upon your article fortuitously via links from other sites. It crystallises exactly what I have been attempting to convey for some years to anyone who would listen but in a much more comprehensive and substantive manner. My thanks to you for this but I am concerned that there is a lack of commitment within western societies to challenge the proselytising and accommodating of Islam that we see daily on our streets and in our media. Certainly within the UK any challenge to Muslims is represented as “racist” by the liberal press and it is difficult to counter this perception as so often demonstrations against Islam are hijacked by groups such as the BNP. Until a route is found by which opposition to Islam can be more widely seen in the rational and dispassionate manner which you have presented here then I’m afraid the steady drip-drip erosion of the liberties of kafirs and the promotion of Muslims will continue and indeed accelerate. Notwithstanding this I can only thank you for your efforts and the clarity of your thought.

Citizen Warrior 1:46 AM  

Thank you very much, Dhimmitude Ishere. And when someone calls your just criticism of Islam "racism," give them this:

Is it Racist to Criticize Islam?

Dhimmitude Ishere 2:34 AM  

Thank you for this.

Aside from such public figures, what is also often overlooked or forgotten within the UK is the experience of non-Muslim minority ethnic groups with Islam in their (or earlier generations') home countries and/or the intimidation they face from Muslims here.

A greater focus on their thoughts and feelings would help to counter the "racist" tag but it is unclear how this may be achieved.

Unfortunately, they - as with so many others including shamefully myself - are not yet willing to stand up to be counted in a public sphere rather than safer, more controlled environments. For all of us, however, I feel this time must inevitably come if we are not to be subsumed and subjugated.

Kafir2012 4:30 AM  

Good Luck Britain. you are going to need it. Britain never realised what it was playing with and against in a dangerous double - entrende in India during colonialism. When it was time, the Islamists demanded and partitioned India and left behind enough to pursue the cause of Islamisation of rest of Hindu India. Despite government apathy and continued betrayals of the majority Hindu cause in the name of "secularism", the resurgent Hindu India is waking up to the dire threat that the galloping Islamic population poses and the rapid advancement of Sharia to become a frightening reality. Meanwhile here is an article you may be interested in.
Thanks again for putting out the realities that Islam masks while carrying out its surreptitious agenda all over the world, for every Islam follower always quotes that since a non-muslim hasnt really read the Quran then there can be no discussion on the same; though any discussion on the demerits of Quran and Mohammed are explicitly prohibited anyways and can cause violent reactions from the followers as a matter of right.
Citizen Warrior, your fears are REAL and I hope the rest of Europe wakes up to the dangers of an Islamic overthrow before it is too late. We are living the same in India and it is a matter of time before armed conflict erupts in Europe as noticed by the recent plans to carry out simultaneous attacks in all major European cities much like the terrorist attack in Mumbai a couple of years ago.Allah help you in your quest..haha...

Great article!

I started thinking about Islam as a dangerous, self-replicating "meme" a few years back.

The catalyst was a Muslim colleague who tried to convince me Islam was tolerant. His evidence was a source claiming that the Koran demanded that Muslim men could marry Christian/Jewish women and were obliged by the Koran NOT to interfere with their wive's religion (thus allegedly proving how tolerant Koran is).

But... the same source also declared that:
1 - Children should follow the father's religion.
2 - And while Muslim men were allowed to marry infidels, Muslim women were not.

And then I thought how those rules interacted with each other.

And then I realized that, under a thin disguise of supposed "tolerance", these rules gave an evolutionary/competitive advantage to the Muslims over the long term (ie: birthrate/religon of children).

In reality, these rules didn't facilitate "tolerance". They simply facilitated a steady, slow-motion conquest by stealth.

Now I don't know the providence of these claimed traditions, but when even the evidence shown to me directly by a "Moderate Muslim" clearly shows a Supremacist mindset, this is not encouraging!

And so my suspicion began...

Thank you for laying this all out so clearly and easy-to-understand in a single article.

The significant advantage free men and women have over Sharia's culture is the tendency of a soul which is born free to desire to remain free. Freedom is very much a one way road. Once you have enjoyed it, you can never go back.

Someone emailed this comment:

Muslims meet everyday or every Friday in religious environment...

That helps them a lot to discuss issues related to them very quickly and make decisions about quick time and with help of all...

This is their most important and valuable meme.

Having read most of this blog, I echo just about all the comments made on the qualities of your blog, not forgetting the amount of work which has gone into creating it.
A couple of points I would like to make / emphasize.
One: I wouldn't want to add to your burden, but it could help if there was a summary for each point, before going into detail. (if possible with references - as has already been noted)
Two: Islam can equally be characterised as a socio-political system, using relgion as one of the primary means of attaining its objectives.
Three: Robert Laity's link seems to have been "lost". This maybe the same video -
If not, it certainly adds to the debate, even though it could equally be interpreted as a plan for world domination by Islam ....
Finally, the blog would be even more effective if the links were clickable.

Thanks again for all your hard work, energy and commitment.

Your the most ignorant person I've ever read an article for.

Corinne Yaworski 2:55 AM  

As silly as it may seem in light of your truth about the fundamental aspects of Islam, I have read a lot about Cat Stevens, the pop star, who converted to Islam many years ago. I feel very badly that this man who has won many humanitarian awards and donates to orphans in Africa, etc., etc., (YUSEF ISLAM) is a dangerous-minded individual with Muslim ideals, and is now going back to his singing career again. I am confused, or maybe shocked.Do you have any ideas about this individual?

Citizen Warrior 1:57 PM  

I don't know what Cat Stevens believes. But just as in any religion, there is a wide range of possible levels of knowledge, belief, and passion. Cat may know little of Islam. He may never have read the Koran. He may have an Imam that cherry picks peaceful passages from the Koran and ignores the rest (including the passages in the Koran saying that you cannot cherry pick).

Perfectly nice people have been hoodwinked into following Islam, and once one has committed oneself publicly, one will tend to only reinforce one's belief over time.

I would say the terrifying brilliance of CW! I have battled with a hotch-potch of ideas from here and there, having to decipher hidden meaning, and sugar-coated polemics. Scholarly Islam debators, and die hard atheists. I had a mental list of why Mohammed was successful, as both a military strategist (an under-rated attribute), politician, diplomat, and psychologist, and how he managed to cipher that into the Koran. You have made my scrambled thoughts coherent, and added many more. Now to get down to work....

Unknown 11:16 AM  

CW, I have taken it upon myself to take your list of attributes, and provide references to the appropriate Koranic texts. I have more then a passing interest in religion, and ancient technologies and cultures, and am a bit of a voracious researcher. I am of the opinion that Mohammed, far from making the Koran an intricate document, created it to have clear, unequivocal messages - the reason being that the audience was often illiterate (like himself), BUT that does not make people stupid! I think he wove the religious aspect, with an Islamic expansionist ideology with incredible skill. It is very much a dualistic system. It appeals to both the higher, altruistic mind, and also the lesser instincts of man,like revenge, power, domination etc. I'll post occasionally, to let you know how its going. Thanks for your work.

As an example :-

So, [O Muhammad], We have only made Qur'an easy in the Arabic language that you may give good tidings thereby to the righteous and warn thereby a hostile people.
Sahih International . 19.97

[019_097]97 And We make (this Scripture) easy in thy tongue, (O Muhammad) only that thou mayest bear good tidings therewith unto those who ward off (evil), and warn therewith the hostile folk.

Even while saying the Koran is easy to understand, Mohammed delivers a veiled (excuse the pun) threat to the non-believers.

The only way to slow down Islam for sure, is to make sure all the females can't reproduce. Whatever it takes to get there.

After WWII, German women had a reputation because all the German men were gone.

Imagine the tension if the females were gone?

Anonymous 10:51 AM  

I wonder if the muslims know where paradise is if that is their goal in this life. Does the koran tells him where paradise is? Islam entices men only with sensual pleasures. Muslim women are not eligible or entitled to sexual pleasure? It is said that suicide bombers are GUARANTEED with 77 virgins in paradise! Goodness! Where would the virgins appear from? All muslims should be told that there is no such place as paradise which the human mind envisaged. And all muslim females should ask themselves if they are sub-human or just playthings for men. It is a wonder that Islamic Pakistan could tolerate a female prime minister at one stage.
Finally all non-muslims should take heed of Islam which is the modern day cancer!

I have sent a copy of your article to our Local Education Authority to be used in the teaching of Islam.
They say that what you have said is too extreme and would upset the Muslim Community. So the only information about Islam the teach the children comes direct from, and approved by the local Mosque.
The UK is now an Islamic state and will tolerate no dissent?

Satan is brilliant,and Islam is a satanically inspired ideology hiding behind a thinly veiled religiosity and should never have the status of religion. Islam is bent on world domination via the sword and/or Dhimmy status.

'The terrifying brilliance of Islam' was amply demonstrated in 1915 when Mohammad's techniques were successfully used by the Ottomans to wipe out millions of non Muslims out of the Ottoman Empire and convert many of them to Islam. The same techniques are being employed again by ISIS and Boko haram to rid the Middle East and Africa of Christians. The turn of other continents will eventually come.

A.Aghassi 7:02 PM  

Unfortunately your blog prompts mistrust, hate and division. Out of hundreds of Muslims that I know personally know not one hates Americans and out of thousands of Muslims I have interacted with not once have I come across one that was dedicated to hurting an American or a none Muslim.

The root word of Islam means peace. I agree that Islam is misunderstood even by Muslims. But much of what you have written about Quran is inaccurate. For example in Quran it is said that if you follow your fathers religion (Islam) you are no better than a none believer. This means one must establish ones faith based on ones own experience.

It would be great for you to watch with open heart and open mind " The life of The last Prophet Muhammad PBUH BBC Documentary "

Please write more responsibily
Thank you

"islam" does NOT mean peace; it means SUBMISSION.

Lucky you that none of the muzzies that you know want to kill you or harm you in any way. But should we thank each and every muzzie that doesn't kill or harm us?

It would be great if you actually read all of the quran and hadith and sira.

mrmacguyver 3:07 AM  

To call this a 'religion' is an over generous classification, rather it is an 'ideology', an ideology of conquest. No more a religion than the worship of Hitler, Koresh or Charles Manson and the like. It has been at odds with civilization since it's inception in the 7th century. It is the adoration of evil, fostering oppression,brutality and murder upon any who 'dare' to oppose it.

Unknown 10:27 AM  

Excellent analysis, CW, one that focuses on facts and avoids the mockery and mud-slinging that are so typical of anti-Islam posts.
I started studying Islam many years ago, using it as the out-group comparative to better understand Christianity and Judaism. What I discovered about the "religion of peace" horrified me. I have spent more than half my life since then attempting, in my own small way, to alert others to the dangers Islam poses. My success has been limited: Much of the educated west has swallowed the idea that any criticism of Islam constitutes racism or Islamophobia.
What we need is to saturate the media with more articles like this one. I firmly believe that the truth eventually comes out, no matter how much individuals try to twist it or extinguish it. We all need to tell the truth about Islam, repeatedly and thoroughly, while at the same time avoiding all attacks on Muslims. Stick to criticizing the tenets of the ideology, and eventually the world will wake up. Just hope it does not take too long, or much of Earth may burn first. Islam does not shrink from devastating, destructive warfare.

I am not a follower of abrahamic faiths and I never understood what is wrong in being polytheistic or pagan. I never understood the hatred I see from Muslims/Christians and try to convert us. I have seen people who bring this good word to my door steps or block ways to preach us. Why can't we all live in peace. What is wrong if I believe in zillion gods and you believe in only one God. Thankfully I am from a country where religions are all equal before state. Muslims openly proclaim in my home country they will convert all my country to Islam. May be it will happen in my life time or my people will wake up and respect their own faith. I do not know but from long I wanted to know why I have to worship their only one God. My religion encourages diversity, that's all I care about.

points no.9 is not completely true
only happend in syaria country
in secular country like mine, it is okay to change your religion to christian, catholic, hindhu and buddhism. but once you try atheism is death penalty. you could be shot death by mysterious gunman. dont try

i keep hearing ignorant blaming islam convert to another religion. saying stupid because they just jump from one prison to another prison. educate yourself before blaming people

not all the country give freedom of faith. in my country you need to carry an ID card stating your religion, all of your document papper should state what is ypur religion. and atheism is banned, shot death.

usually atheist hiding behind islam & christian ID card. i met so many athist in islam & christian ID card
even if people say indonesia has the biggest muslim comunity, i could guarantee that some of them are atheist. we called them islam id card or christian id card. because the truth is... they're agnostic/atheist.

so please stop called them stupid to convert from muslim to christian. it is hard for them hiding behind islam id card anymore because arabic influence since 9/11, that's why they (atheist islam id card) convert to christian.

let me answer as a muslim. becausr we spent our time 24hour/day for Allah : shalat in Arabic language, pray in arabic language and memeorize hadits,fasting, not eat not drinking and list goes on. if your not natural born Arab you need 160IQ to do all of that.
so if you want to learn science as muslim you need 200IQ to do that because you still have to memeorize haditz quran sunnah etc and all of that without eatong and drinking

Great article. It is good to know your enemy. Here is where we should start.
ISLAM was banned from the US in 1952.
The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27,1952! Public Law 414.
The law is not being enforced because of the PC mind set that has been shoved down our throats. This is how they win. The Muzzies are not worried about being PC.In fact they are very predigest as this article point out!
Then we need to re-evaluate what our forefathers really meant when they said Freedom of Religion. I believe they where talking about freedom of the Christian Religion not any religion or all religions as that was the religion in this country at the time when our Constitution was written!
Victory belong to the vigilant!
Long live the republic if you can keep it!

Muslim Sharia-adherents are directed by their prophet and holy book to oppress/commit jihad against Jews, Christians and all non-Muslims in order to convert the world to Islam for the sake of Allah, thus guaranteeing a place in a fairytale paradise and those 72 virgins (Mo’s sex fantasy.)
Everywhere they attain power they create misery and everywhere they have yet to attain power they stir up hatred and instability, all started by a hallucinatory, sadistic, pedophile, psychopath,”the perfect man. “
Islam is proof of the depth of depravity humans are capable of descending to. In case you don’t get it yet read the Qur’an, the Hadith, the Sira (their Bible) for yourself and see the many texts that call for the murder of those not like them (infidels.)

Sharia the law of Islam is the final word of Islam

It is my belief a collaboration between CW & Lloyd de Jongh would bring about brilliant and irrefutable truths about Islam.

Much needed collaborations that detail truth setting aside opinions based on Islamic Reliable Sources in short videos will enlighten the masses regardless of censor.

Truth is weakness in Islam. Commanding the truth forbidding the wrong is the calling card of Islam as Lloyd explains levels among followers most of which are at the bottom of the educational chart.

Mr. de Jongh details this with citation as with each and every other note worthy comment made.

Yes, collaboration is the ideal anti-dote to this virus referred to as Islam.

Walter Sieruk 3:59 PM  

As for point number 8, which is "It is a punishable offense to criticize Islam."

That hard rule , that is Islamic law, is actually proof that Islam of a fragile and weak religion that can't stand up to criticism, of any type, no matter who mild that criticism migh be .

There's since Islam terribly lacks any valid,genuine logical arguments to hold it up, it's therefore "a punishable offense to criticize Islam."

Walter Sieruk 12:00 PM  

A doctrine of Islam that inspires young Muslim males to become jihadists who engine in suicide/homicide Islamic terror attacks is point number 11 from this article ,which is that “Dying while fighting for Islam is the ONLY way to guarantee a man's entrance into Paradise11. Dying while fighting for Islam is the ONLY way to guarantee a man's entrance into Paradise.”

Therefore, in this twenty-first century conflict between the Judeo- Christian West and the Islamic East which also has been termed “The war of Ideas” the West needs ideas for its very foundation and defense that is far superior to something as weak and worthless as just “opinion.”

What the West needs is wisdom. As the Bible instructs “Wisdom is better than strength.” Ecclesiastes 9:16. [N.K.J.V.] Likewise, this same book of the Bible also teaches in 9:18 “Wisdom is better than weapons of war.” Therefore, wisdom is in strong contrast to opinion. Also greatly opposed to wisdom is folly and deceit. As the Bible in Proverbs 14:8 informs the reader ‘The folly of fools is deceit.”

The Muslims who are the jihadists are dangerous, deadly and deluded. By the word “ deluded “ it means that they are under the spell of the deception of the false doctrines of the false religion that is Islam.

This deception of deceit may be seen, by all those who are willing to see, in the Islamic doctrine of a virgin filled paradise designed specify for the male Muslim jihadist who dies in the jihad for the cause of Islam, in what they so inappropriately call a “martyrdom operation.” Many a times a jihadist/Muslim is so very deluded that he actually put on his video recording that after he dies in the jihad as a “martyr” he will then in paradise have a “wedding with virgins.” This firm but blind unquestioning folly is the result of such a man believing in deception of a false doctrine. With Light of the Wisdom of Jesus a belief in a “wedding with virgins.” is the outcome of a person accepting as the “truth” an invalid and false. For Jesus taught “you are mistaken, not knowing the Scripture nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angles in heaven.” Matthew 22:29,30. [N.K.J.V.]

A jihadist will after dies and such a murderous way will have a very hard and harsh “reality check” In that “his expectation will perish…” Proverb 11:7. For he will then discover that he was deceived by false doctrine and lie of “a paradise with virgins” and to his shock and horror he will find himself trapped and suffering ,with no hope of escape, in the fires of hell. As the Bible teaches a murder “will not inherit the kingdom of God,” Galatians 5:21. This is sad and tragic but nevertheless it’s the reality of the truth.
