"Muslims Are Not What Is Wrong With Islam"


"The problem with Islam is the Prophet Muhammad. According to Islamic scripture (in other words, what mainstream Muslims are taught to believe) the Prophet Muhammad was a slave owner, a rapist, committed mass murder, hated Jews with a passion, wanted homosexuals punished, killed his critics, stripped women of all rights and had sex with a nine year old girl, whom he married when she was six, named Aisha."

The above is quoted from an article by Eric Allen Bell, a liberal filmmaker who changed his mind about Islam (read his story here and here). He wrote a great article (read it here) describing what would happen if Muhammad were alive today. He goes into great detail, and I think he is accurate.

Here are a few excerpts:

"If he were alive today," wrote Bell, "Amnesty International would certainly have a problem with his followers obeying his laws, which demand that certain people have their limbs amputated and their nose cut off.

The Huffington Post and Daily Kos would be collecting signatures, to demand that our government do something to stop him. Media Matters would be reprinting all of the outrageous things he said, such as "I have become victorious through terror."

Michael Moore would probably follow the Prophet around, trying to trick him into a "gotcha" question, then win an Academy Award for his latest documentary, "Muhammad and Me."

CNN’s Anderson Cooper would profile the Prophet Muhammad in his “Keeping Them Honest” segment of his highly rated show, because of all the contradictions in Muhammad’s best seller, the Holy Quran (look up “Abrogation”).

The ADL would have an issue with the Prophet Muhammad stating that Jews are all apes and pigs (see Suras 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166), rather than trying to protect the rights of Islam’s female followers to wear black sheets over their bodies, as the Prophet’s laws command. If someone were alive today, calling Jews apes and pigs, while having 1.6 billion followers, the ADL would have something to say about it.

The Daily Show would have more fun mocking the Prophet than taking pot shots at Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck. Bill Maher and Sean Hannity would ironically be sharing a Nobel Peace Prize for their brave and pioneering work, in exposing the war crimes of the Prophet Muhammad.

Gay rights groups would be a little concerned about the Mormon Church, but totally freaked out about anyone who follows the laws of the Prophet, known as the Sharia, because Sharia Law calls for homosexuals to be severely punished. Every cult awareness website and organization out there would put out an alert, since the penalty for leaving the Prophet’s religion is death.

After the Prophet Muhammad beheaded an entire tribe of Jews, possibly no one would have a problem with waterboarding anyone who knew where to find him. The Prophet Muhammad had several wives, but the one named Safiyya became his wife after he tortured and killed her father, her brothers, the men in her tribe, told his fighters to take the women of that tribe as sex slaves and then raped Safia that night.

It goes on in this vein, but you get the idea. This is obviously a great article to share with your friends and family, but since Bell takes his fellow liberals to task for ignoring this issue, and since his credentials are at the end of the article, I think most liberals would assume the author is a right wing fanatic before they read the first two paragraphs and would stop reading. So if you share the article with your liberal friends, make it clear beforehand that the article is written by a liberal.

You might start with the description you find at the end of the article:

Eric Allen Bell is a writer, filmmaker and Media Adviser living in Los Angeles, California. While making a documentary about the construction of a 53,000 square foot mega mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee he attempted to expose “Islamophobia.” Once he stated that Islam was the biggest threat to human rights in the world today, he was banned from the writing for Daily Kos and MichaelMoore.com, after LoonWatch.com created a petition to silence him. His article, “The High Price of Telling the Truth About Islam” has been widely circulated and has caused several liberals to rethink how they look at the religion of peace.

It's always interesting, and more than a little frustrating, to read and discuss about liberals and Islam.

I am a liberal critic of Islam who switched sides after reading Ibn Warraq's book Why I am not a Muslim. This happened after watching the Egypt revolution on Al Jazeera and noticing that the rape of Lara Logan in Tahrir Square was not covered at all in Al Jazeera, yet was all over the front pages everywhere else. This was especially odd, since Al Jazeera had an office in Tahrir Square back then.

Ibn Warraq is an atheist ex-Muslim born in India, who spent his childhood in Pakistan and was sent to the UK for his education and to learn Islamic Studies. He ended up rejecting Islam and becoming an atheist. At the beginning of his book, he carefully makes the distinction between unfair criticism of Muslims by lumping them together as a monolithic whole, and criticizing the doctrines of Islam. No ideology is above criticism. It took all of about five seconds of thought to understand this, yet I have found it nearly impossible to get this point across when talking to fellow liberals online about Islam.

I'd like to suggest a video about Islam for liberals by one of the co-founders of Ex-Muslims of North America, Sarah Haider. It's called Islam and the Necessity of Liberal Critique. Please pass it on to your liberal friends.

why Islam is bad bad bad?

Looking deeper in the Qur'anic verses, will appear the aggressive way of thinking , besides the violence of the Godless words of killing and torturing.

It's a shame to see the world has not seen such brutality and savagery in modern times like in Islam.

Muslims are supporting Horrible facts about Islam or the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – ISIS” . ISIS are doing something what their prophet did, before 1430 years ago.

Driven by what they see as divine command and wreaking havoc and devastation only thought possible in Hollywood productions the Islamic militant group ISIS has pushed the definition of terrorism to a new and scary limit.

I lived in Iraq as a Christian by family , and I am a Buddhist since many years. I do know exactly how Muslims think and wish to behave under the Shareaa law.

Their ongoing banquet of carnage has to be seen, not only to be believed but to grasp how religion, that should have united humans in peace, could turn into a licence to lawless slaughters.

The problem with Muslims , they are
Following the scripture literally
Now what’s interesting, or rather shocking, is the fact that those hideous acts of terrorism are executed by people who claim they are devout Muslims.

I grow up in Iraq with a Christian family. I never was a Christian. I was a secular human.

I have the tendency for a Buddhism teaching.
After the shariaa laws, I should be killed, specially cause believing in the Christianity a bit more accessible and acceptable by Muslims more than a Buddhism.

The reason behind this issue is,in the Buddhism the concept of a creator doesn't exist compare to a Christian believe.

Therefore, killing a non believers whom was an official Christian more legitimate by Muslims.

I know as an Iraqi Buddhist that the whole world, including the Islamic world, is viewing ISIS Mujahideen as the ultimate example of brutal terrorism and modern time’s savagery.

But this world view doesn’t concern me as much as how those Muslim terrorists really view themselves. Moreover, why a supposedly devout Muslim would/should end up as a global terrorist just for merely doing what his faith oblige him to undertake.

I am a Buddhist whom lives in Iraq. I have the deep view about reality of Islam. Islam is really dangerous cause the idealism that Islam has is unhealthy issue for our world .

It's sad to see that Islam getting stronger in Norway. I have my own experience with Islam.

Quran (9:38-39) - "O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place." ."

this is the Islam , these are the real Qur'anic verses .

I am a liberal with zero tolerance for Islam. Having studied this pseudo-religion for three decades, I can say with certainty that there is nothing positive or spiritual about it. Islam has no redeeming characteristics. It is simply a totalitarian, imperialistic ideology with a thin veneer of religion to dupe the ignorant and lull the complacent. I pity Muslims for having been brainwashed, but that doesn't mean that I think Islam should be tolerated in liberal democracies. It is completely incompatible with Universal human rights.

QuiCreva Sp, I have published articles about liberals who understand Islam:


Many conservatives find it hard to believe. If you would like to write anything about how a liberal thinks about Islam (and why), I would be willing to publish it. Send it to me at citizenwarriorgeneral@gmail.com.

Article Spotlight

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com 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).
