The Ingenious Menace


I've read the Koran twice. In my opinion, it doesn't display much intelligence. My overall impression while reading was that the person who created those verses was slow-witted. It's too obviously and almost childishly self-serving. It is blatant. There doesn't seem to be a shred of cleverness in any of it.

And the results of the first 13 years of Muhammad's career as a prophet seem to bear this out. He only gained 150 followers by just reciting the verses of the Koran. It's possible that only very uneducated, naive people fell for it. That is, until he switched to violence.

But I see real brilliance in the ideology taken all together (the Koran, Hadith and Sira — the Islamic trilogy). Sinister, yes. But ingenious in its own way. You can read more about that here: The Terrifying Brilliance of Islam. Yesterday, as I looked at a Muslim I work with, a cold sensation ran through me when I realized he has 15 children, and in every way appears to be a nice man, and a hard worker. But because of Islam's tenets, he can live his whole life being nothing more than a kindly, industrious fellow, never raising any suspicion and never doing anything that should justify suspicion, and yet raise his kids as devout Muslims, which means they would believe in the Koran and the "sacred" example of Muhammad, which would mean, if they ever read the Islamic trilogy when they grow up, they will discover that they are obligated to wage jihad against the non-Muslim world until everyone on earth has been subjugated under Islamic rule. And if they don't commit themselves to this cause, they will spend eternity being tortured in horrifying ways.

And when a country establishes Islamic rule, the nature of Islamic law will slowly and relentlessly wear down resistance in anyone who hasn't already converted to Islam. It may take centuries, but the result is inevitable: Almost everyone in the country will eventually become a Muslim, and the previous culture will have been completely erased.

It's like a pernicious but very patient virus.

But we don't need to take it lying down. We're certainly not helpless. We can treat it like we would any other virus: Contain it, stop it from spreading, inoculate everyone against it, and if possible, eliminate it completely. We can start here: What's the Game Plan?

Like all works of mythology it sounds poetic. Many people i think are captivated by the beautiful language. There's violent parts and peaceful parts-- take your pick.

I recomend the book: "Why I Am Not Muslim".
by Ibn Warraq. He uses a sledgehammer to total waste the Qu'ran and Hadith. Here's a short article about the book.

Hi there, I was hoping for some advice, I have read the koran on line but am looking for a good koran that I can download to my smartphone kindle app, so that I have got a copy that I can easily refer to when talking to people out and about.
I don't want to pay out and find that it is not a good translation and whitewashes Islam I want one that is truthful.

This above article reflects the information that I just heard today at a lecture held at a church on the topic about "Islam and Islam in the Light of the Bible." The speaker was ,in times past, a Muslim but now a Christian. So as for disaster as the article describes.This all this a horrible deadly brutal violence is the all the fault of ,if the Koran is true, on the god of Islam or likewise called,at times , the Koranic god or the Islamic god. Nevertheless,not the fault the God of the Bible. For as the speaker showed those at the lecture the words and teaching of the from the Koran. Which teaches ""No misfortune [disaster] can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in the [Koran ] before [in eternity] We [Allah] bring into existence: That is truly easy for Allah." Sura 57:22. So all the blame ,according to the Koran ,for all the vicious and murderous evils of Islamic terrorism that such a hideous plague on humankind is the fault of Allah, the god of Islam. In great contrast, the teaching of the God of the Bible are totally different . For the God the the Bible is Loving and Just and some of the essence of the Bible's God is that "Humans are made in God's image which means that acts of violence or abuse against humans is a sin against God."

Keith Ellerby,

I make a recommendation for my favorite Koran in the sidebar here, and why I like it:

I have tried to read the Koran but it is stultifying. If I were on a desert island and it was the only book I had, I cannot imagine wanting to spend time reading it. I will reluctantly try again this summer.

I didn't enjoy reading it at all. It was so boring and so dumb, I could only take a few pages of it at a time. But since then, I have been able to speak with authority to friends and family, and they listen with more respect because I have read the Koran and they haven't.

You can find the close to the true chronological order of the koran as it can be divided up with Meccan, where he first started, so was meek mild and peaceful.

Then he fled to Medina, where started his warlord attacks and eventually returned to Mecca at the head of an army to build more power and to take revenge.

It is sort of the reverse of the Bible, where the old testament is then viewed with a different view as the gospels and new testament ameriolates or reforms the old.

Mohammad changes, and that is where the abrogation verses turn things to bad, and considered to abrogate any thing that was said earlier.

A choice of 3 links that put the koran into chronological order, some with back ground tips of reading the koran.'an

When the abrogation verses come up, then you can see the changes that are important to understand the koran.

It is an epiphany, a comprehension of understanding of certain parts of history, to understand the spread of islam today, and why some of these problems keep on repeating.

And all thanks to all of those who help spread the knowledge of islam in the above links and here on this site.

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).
