The Golden Rule in Islam


Islam's apologists say that Islam just needs a reform. After all, Christianity and Judaism have been reformed. But the apologists never get around to saying what the reform would be.

There are many kinds of reform possible to Islam, but does anyone care if they reformed prayer by praying towards LA rather than Mecca? No. The only thing that kafirs care about is how Islam treats us. We want our treatment changed. We want political Islam reformed.

Islam's treatment of us can be found in one word — kafir. The Koran says that a kafir (unbeliever) can be robbed, killed, tortured, mocked, insulted, beheaded, raped, crucified and on and on. The Hadith and the Sira agree with the Koran. Every single reference to the kafirs is negative, offensive and hateful.

The word "kafir" illustrates both of political Islam's principles — submission and duality. The Trilogy (Koran, Sira and Hadith) says that every kafir in the world must submit to political Islam.

The Koran also establishes dualism with its ethical system. A Muslim is not to kill another Muslim; a kafir may be killed, or not. A Muslim is not to lie to another Muslim; a kafir may be deceived or not. And so on. Islam has one set of ethics for Muslims and another set of ethics for the kafir — dualistic ethics.

The later political Koran written in Medina frequently contradicts the early religious Koran written in Mecca. The Koran gives a rule for removing the contradiction by saying that the later Koran "abrogates" the early Koran. But the earlier Koran is still true; it was given by Allah. So in Islam both sides of a contradiction can be true. This gives Islam its dualistic logic. Our unitary logic says that if two things contradict, then one of them is false

This dualism accounts for the two types of Muslims — the good Muslim at work and the Taliban Muslim. Both Muslims are "real" Muslims. Dualism gives the "good" Muslim plausible deniability when they say that jihadists are not "real" Islam. Dualism means the "good" Muslims and the jihadists are just two ends of the same stick.

The Koran, Sira and Hadith are filled with demands for all kafirs to submit to Islam. Kafirs can submit by joining the religion or submit by being a dhimmi (an apologist). Either way, the Koran constantly demands that all kafirs submit to Islam.

So what kafirs want to reform about Islam is its principles of political submission and duality. What principle can be used to reform Islam? The key is how Islam treats the "other" — the kafir. The Golden Rule tells us how the "other" is to be treated. Every culture in the world has the Golden Rule as part of its heritage. But not Islam.

So what happens if we apply — treat others, as you want to be treated — to political Islam? All of the hurtful, hateful and harmful duality and submission disappear. What is amazing is how much of the Islamic doctrine goes away. About 61% of the Koran disappears. The Sira loses 75% of its words and 20% of the Hadith vanishes.

And those figures are low. All of the abusive words about women would go away as well. So the above reductions would be even bigger.

The Golden Rule even changes Hell. Islamic Hell is primarily political. Hell is mentioned 146 times in the Koran. Only 9 references are for moral failings — greed, lack of charity, love of worldly success. The other 137 references to Hell involve eternal torture for not agreeing that Mohammed is right. That is a political charge, not a morals failure. Thus 94% of the references to Hell are as a political prison for dissenters. The Golden Rule would empty the political prison.

Think how wonderful a Golden Rule Islam would be. No arguments, demands, accusations, law suits, threats, pressure, hateful speech, killings, or bombings. A Muslim could even be a true friend to a kafir. Islam would develop a sense of shame and admit to the terrible suffering of the 270,000,000 kafirs killed in jihad. A Golden Rule Islam would ask forgiveness about all the suffering of the dhimmis. A Golden Rule Islam would also admit to running the slave trade in Africa by killing and capturing the slaves they sold to the white slave traders.

Women would not have to be beaten and wear the hijab or burka. Honor killings would stop. Muslims could join us in the human race.

But all of those wonderful thoughts vanish when you realize what else it would mean to Islam. Mohammed had only 150 followers in Mecca after preaching the religion for 13 years. But when he went to Medina and became a politician and warlord, he conquered all of Arabia in 9 years by averaging a violent event every 6 weeks.

Duality and political submission were the principles that gave Islam its victory. Why would Islam drop the only principles that yielded success? Duality and political submission have crushed the world that believes in the Golden Rule.

CSPI could produce a Koran, Sira and Hadith that would use the Golden Rule. It would be a thin volume, but what Muslim would buy it?

Excellent article.

... and more Taqqiya at work.

Leila Ahmed argues that “… the theme of the “oppression of women in Islam” – always in quotation marks – serves an ideology, and that that ideology is imperialism. Criticisms from such feminists as Azar Nafisi, Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali are a “rearticulation in native voice of the imperialist theses about the inferiority of Islam”, she believes.”

What she is doing is piggy backing on the use of the word imperialism – in one fell swoop she makes common ground with the anti-imperialist Left.

The Left has only one understanding for the word “imperialism” – it is only meant in the sense of alleged “western” imperialism.

The Islamic imperialism or the past Soviet imperialism or for that matter the emerging Chinese and Indian imperialism are not included.

Having said this China, India and Russia are our essential allies if we are to stop Islamic Global Jihad.

The cancerous cells of Islamic Global Jihad have not yet sufficiently penetrated China, Russia contains them in its sheer resilience, and India lives with them.

The West is the most vulnerable with soft jihadists using the historically exceptional civil freedoms that the West has brought to the Planet to advance their cause.

Bill Warner has a unique and often brilliant perspective on Islam. Particularly with regard to abrogation, his understanding is more complex and interesting than that of most Islam-critics.

More on the absence of a Golden Rule in Islam.

Yet another article from Raymond Ibrahim, an expert in the plights of Copts.

Telling it like it really is ...

"The later political Koran written in Medina frequently contradicts the early religious Koran written in Mecca."

I am very unfamiliar with this concept of two Korans. Any links?

Citizen Warrior 1:40 AM  

Sure, Ibrahamav, this will get you started:

You'll find plenty on that site. Just nose around a bit.

Kafir. That explains a lot.

That Bastille Day jihad attack in Nice, France is Koranic based, as seen in for example in Sura 4:89. 5:33. 9:5, 111,123. 47:4. As most everyone knows the Koran, or as some call it the Quran , is the whole foundation of and for Islam. So it may be illustrated that of Islam is represented as a tree then the fruits then the fruits of that tree are the many brutal, violent and deadly jihad terror entities. Such as ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, al Shabaab , Hamas, Hezbollah, P.I.J. etc. With this statement, the Wisdom of the teachings of Jesus may, very much, apply to this subject. For Jesus taught “Ye do know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” After saying this Jesus told them what He told them when He said “By their fruit ye shall know them.” Matthew 7:16, 17, 18,.20. [K.J.V.] In conclusion, Islam is a corrupt tree and also a false religion, Proverbs 14:12. John 14:6. First John 2:22,23. 4:14,15. 5:12,13,20.

There are already denials that the Bastille Day jihadist with his murderous terrorism was really a Muslim. This denials are based on the grounds that he has engaged in un-Islamic activities. For example, he ate pork and drank alcohol. This is the same line of reasoning which denied that the Muslim terrorists shooter and mass murderer of Orlando was a real Muslim because it was said that he might have had “homosexual tendencies.” Likewise, some people have even said that the 9/11 hijackers were not actual Muslims because two of them, maybe, attended a strip joint during the night of September 10, 2001. All such claims aren’t taking into account that according to Islam if a jihad –minded Muslim dies in a jihad suicide/homicide attack, which they call a “martyrdom operation,” then all his sins are wiped clean and he will then enter into paradise. These meaning all his sins, whatever those sins are. Including the eating of pork, or the drinking of alcohol, homosexual tendencies or spending time in a strip joint. In conclusion, that jihadist terrorist mass murder at the city in Nice France on July 14 was a real Muslim terrorist.

your idea of exposing muslim is a bad idea. in islam if you doubted it or even no longer want to embrace it, you will be killed as a death punishment

you only bring chaos. do you want to see more and more peole die? because even if people finally figure out the truth, and now what?
there is nothing they can do. nobody wants to die. FYI, no one wants to die, so even if you Have convince them: there would nothing happend. they would be too scared to do anything against islam.

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
