Muhammad in the Quran, Vol. 1: Chapter 18

NON-MUSLIMS = ENEMIES OF MUSLIMS
- THE MAKING OF AN ENEMY PICTURE
Muslims and non-Muslims were not the best of friends even during the Mecca period. But when they fled to Medina, and Muhammad started as a highway man and robber baron and needed warriors + bad victims it was ok to rob and rape and extort and make slaves, and later also to suppress and disuse and extort by apartheid, extra tax, etc., he even more needed to paint an enemy picture of non-Muslims - that made it look more "just" to attack and rob and rape and enslave and suppress and kill them. Reading the Quran you will especially find many points telling they are low quality, bad, unreliable (quite a claim from the only one of the big religion accepting and using dishonesty as an ok working tool), etc. We include also some of these points below, but read the Quran and you will find more.
And especially if we add that in Islam through the centuries, Muslim "clergy" and leaders in bad times frequently accused - and accuse - the "bad" and second (or lower) rate non-Muslims for the problems, resulting in persecution and sometimes in horrible pogroms - f.x. nearly eradicating the Buddhists in India (the homeland of Buddhism) after Islam's conquest of India, one million Armenians murdered in the early 1900s in Armenia, 200ooo Greeks murdered in Turkey at nearly the same time, 200ooo Chinese murdered in Indonesia a few decades ago, horror stories in Africa these latest decades, to mention some. And today: Look at the way Islam and Muslim political authorities flee from homemade problems and ineptitude by blaming and hate-mongering "the bad and Muslim-hating West and/or Jews", included the representative of the Devil, USA and CIA. Take a look at f.x. Pakistan anno 2015 (but also many other places and persons), where they systematically are teaching distaste or even hate against "the hateful West, hating Islam and causing our problems". "The bad or hateful claimed enemy causing our problems" has been the easy way to waylay unrest and dissatisfaction at home for many a leader and government in many a Muslim (and some other) countries.
Muhammad several places in the Quran directly said that non-Muslims of different kinds are enemies of the Muslims, and it is said indirectly many more places - f.x. the ones you should kill, normally only are your enemies. And by co-incidence(?) these claimed enemies at the same time were the opponents of Muhammad, and the ones standing between him and more power.
Also slander and name throwing may be parts of a strategy for de-humanizing opponents, and make them look bad, low quality, and deserving being robbed, suppressed, raped, and killed - an enemy picture. See separate chapters about these ways of vilifying Muhammad's opponents.
¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤
001 2/89h: “Allah is the enemy to those who reject Faith”. Whereas Yahweh leaves his flock in a safe place to try to save the lost ones ("the lost sheep"). Quite a difference between the two books. And between the two claimed gods. Claimed - never proved.
002 2/98a: "Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and Messengers (included Muhammad*) - - - lo! Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith". Included an enemy to those who opposes Muhammad - - - the main point? Here is meant non-Muslims.
003 2/98b: "Whoever (non-Muslims*) is an enemy to Allah and His angels and Messengers (included Muhammad*) - - - lo! Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith". Psychologically a good claim if Muhammad wanted followers and warriors - who wants to be friends of Allah's enemies? And of course enemies of Allah are ok and a good deed to rob and enslave and kill.
004 2/98d: “- - - Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith (non-Muslims*)”. If he exists. And if the Quran speaks the truth, the full truth, and only the truth.
005 3/118e: “- - - rank hatred (of Muslims*) has already appeared from their (non-Muslims') mouths - - -”. Even if this may be true for only a few of them: Is it possible to find worse human beings? - if they really are real humans? At least do not believe anything they tell you which can influence your belief in Muhammad and Islam. Good psychology if a leader wants to keep correcting information away from his followers - not to mention if he wants to attack the claimed bad ones - to attack vermin is a good deed.
006 3/118j: This verse as a whole is representative for parts of the Quran's propaganda against non-Muslims. It also is typical and representative for many other extreme sects wanting to insulate their members from the surroundings and thus from correcting information, and for militant sects wanting to create distance between "us" and "them" in order to prepare the followers for aggression - also within f.x. political extremes. F.x. the militant parts of communism and fascism/Nazism in some cases were nearly as extreme as the harsh parts of the Quran. (Islam has - with a reason - been compared to fascism and Nazism. F.x. by the renowned psychologist Young).
007 3/119c: “- - - they bite off their very fingertips at you in rage (if you are lucky in some way or other*)”. Despicable people - true or not does not matter very much, as long as the followers believe it. And also pep-talk.
008 3/120a: “If aught that is good befalls you (Muslims*), it grieves them (non-Muslims*) - - -”. Unkind fellows.
009 3/120b: “- - - but if some misfortune overtakes you (Muslims*), they (non-Muslims*) rejoice at it”. There is a good reason to dislike them - or worse.
010 3/120e: This verse is one of many in the Quran painting non-Muslims very black and inducing distaste and worse against them. Fertilizer for the cultivation of the strong fascism and war and enemy picture rhetoric in the surahs from Medina.
011 3/152b: “Allah did indeed fulfill His promise to you when ye with His permission were about to annihilate your enemy (non-Muslims*) - - -". Very far from the moral code of NT - you find nothing similar in all the NT. Yahweh and Allah the same god?. Hardly.
Besides: If Allah predestines everything like the Quran states several places, how can one then claim that Allah fulfilled his promise to the Muslims, when he turned the battle and they lost?
012 4/45a: "But Allah hath full knowledge of your enemies - - -". If he exists and is a god, and if he behaves like described in the Quran - and if the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth about this.
###013 4/89f: "- - - seize them (the ones leaving/opposing the religion*) and slay them wherever you (Muslims*) find them - - -." They are Allah’s and your enemies. The religion of peace practicing no compulsion in religion. "The Religion of Honesty"
014 4/101a: "When ye travel through the earth, there is no blame on you if ye shorten your prayers, for the fear that the unbelievers may attack you: for the unbelievers are unto you open enemies". You do not find similar in the Bible - especially to Jesus and the NT unbelievers were not automatically enemies.
As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem which really can have only one valid solutions, can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. F.x. in cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. Islam teaches differently. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1): Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. Islam is teaching differently. 2): The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other. Islam is teaching differently.)
Another fact: Today it is easy by means of statistical methods to check if prayers have any effect. (Let f.x. 1ooo persons each pray for one among 1ooo unknown persons sick or in other ways in need. compare the result after some time with a similar group of 1ooo who has not been prayed for, and see if there is a difference. If there is a positive difference, this would be a strong indication or perhaps even a proof for something - a proof Islam strongly and dearly needs, as they have not any proof for even a single of its central claims. But it has not even tried to make such a test. Why?)
015 4/101b: "- - - for the unbelievers are unto you open enemies." Not strange when you attack and rob them frequently enough.
016 4/101c: "- - - for the unbelievers are unto you open enemies." An unmistakable message - no good basis for building trust between religions, or for integration of Muslims in non-Islamic cultures. Hate mongering simply.
017 4/104a: "And slacken not in following up the enemy (non-Muslims*) - - -". The religion of peace (!!). (Compare it to NT: Forgive your enemy.) And: Fighting non-Muslims - in the beginning mostly for stealing/robbing, raping, taking prisoners for extortion or slavery, later also for spreading Islam - was and is the greatest of religious deeds, according to the Quran.
018 4/104b: "And slacken not in following up the enemy (non-Muslims*) - - -". Absolutely contradicted by NT. One more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and in addition there are all the other proofs. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
019 5/52a: “Those in whose hearts is a disease - - -”. If you are not a Muslim, your heart has a disease. One of Muhammad's many negative and antipathy creating names for non-Muslim. Comments?
But as the Quran and all its errors, contradictions, unclear points, etc. are not from a god - no god makes mistakes wholesale, the who is really who in this point?
020 5/55a: "Your (Muslims'*) (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad*), and the (fellowship of) Believers (Muslims*) - - -." Clear message: Non-Muslims are not your real friends - one step on the road to making an "enemy picture".
021 5/64h: “Amongst them (the Jews*) We (Allah*) have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief”. And why should you love them when Allah obviously did dislike them? Allah’s dislike is a good motif and explanation for ruthlessness against them. (Muhammad treated the Jews in and around Medina very ruthlessly – chased away (because too strong opposition did that he could not kill them in the beginning) a large part, enslaved big groups of women and children and murdered the rest of the survivors – except some who for some years were permitted to live as semi slaves on what used to be their own farms, for a very stiff price. Plus he personally raped and enslaved for his own harem at least two of the women after having murdered or enslaved their families – Rayhana bint Amr and Safijja bint Huayay (he later married Safijja)). Well, the verse is good hate propaganda – and hate is a good background for incitements to war, and for explanations for atrocities.
It is irony - but normal - for a religion of war to accuse others for enmity.
Another irony: Muhammad claimed "the others" were the aggressors, but in nearly every case of armed conflict, the Muslims were the aggressive ones - mostly raiding for riches, extortion, rape and slaves.
022 6/28d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are indeed liars". At least a clear message to Muhammad's followers - if it is true, is another question. Besides it is an ironic message from the only of the big religions which accepts lies in the religion (f.x. Muhammad was too intelligent not to know he was lying when he claimed miracles would not make people believe - but he needed to explain away the lack of proofs for Allah), and as work tools - f.x. al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) and worse.
023 6/33e: "- - - the wicked - - -". One of the many negative and discriminating names Muhammad had for non-Muslims. No wonder many Muslims do not want unnecessary contact with non-Muslims, and that some have a superiority complex towards them - and think it is ok to suppress or kill them.
####024 6/45b: "Of the wrongdoers the last remnant was cut off (killed*). Praise be to Allah - - -". ########This "Praise be to Allah" is one of the points which makes Islam a morally sick and distasteful religion. A claimed benevolent and good god who is to be praised for stealing, rape, slave taking, extortion, repeated atrocities, apartheid, and mass murder, and for the reason they had another religion only, is distasteful outside our vocabulary, and as wrong morally. We are sorry - we have big vocabularies from lives in reading and learning, but we do not have strong enough words for this.
######A pinnacle of a high moral code for any religion anywhere in the world.
Not to mention one of the really strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same gods, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same religion, not to mention in the same line of prophets. Read this claim from Muhammad, and then read the words of Jesus - ########it will take a great amount of naivety and wishful thinking to be able to believe those two ever were in the same religion or represented the same god.
Are there any similarities between the Quran's moral code and the ones of f.x. the Mafia, the Cosa Nostra, the Chinese Triads, etc.?
Muslims able to glorify the real Muhammad, must be somewhat special beings morally.
025 6/93g: "- - - the wicked - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names mainly for non-Muslims - names which even today influence Muslims' view of non-Muslims; non-Muslims are no good. (If the Quran had been a modern novel, it had been prohibited in many or most civilized countries for among other things incitement to discrimination (and for incitement to terror and murder, etc.).)
026 6/106f: "- - - turn aside from those who join gods with Allah". Do not mingle with non-Muslims. Also one of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims. Indicated claim: They are bad - or worse.
027 6/148i: "- - - ye (non-Muslims*) do nothing but lie". This is a demonstration of 6/148c above: Loose claim. But this also is a part of some ones - and not only Muslims' - method of debate: Scolding, slander, etc. Just this accusation in the Quran is a bit ironic, though: The only of the reasonably big religions where dishonesty not only is an accepted, but advised part of religious debates, is Islam (but NB: Only if there is a reason for lying, or if it is necessary to win your point - - - but all the same: How reliable is a religion which relies on lies? - al Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), etc. and even broken words/promises/oaths.)
Worse: At least the claim that they did nothing but lie, is a lie - and such an obvious one, that Muhammad had to know he was lying here.
028 8/7a: “Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties (non-Muslims from Mecca_) - - -". The Muslim spies had reported a rich caravan to plunder. There is no documentation even in the Quran for that Allah had promised it to them. And the army from Mecca they did not even know about, until they met it at Badr - absolutely not promised them.
029 8/16a: “If any (Muslim warrior*) do turn his back to them (the non-Muslim enemy*) on such a day (during battle) - - - he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell - - - “. Fight for Allah and Muhammad or end in Hell. One verse is the carrot, this one the whip. War is a central part of the life and the religion - - - "the Religion of Peace"!!! (This claim is a joke for anyone who really has read the Quran).
030 8/19a: (A22 – in 2008 edition A21): “(O Unbelievers!) if ye prayed for victory and judgment, now hath the judgment come to you: if ye desist (from wrong), it will be best for you: if you return (to the attack) so shall We (Allah*).” This seems to be a clear-cut warning to the enemy (the non-Muslim Quraysh/Mecca at Badr). But remember that what is written in ( ) is put there by the translator to explain or to make things more clear – and if the translator has guessed wrong, the explanations are wrong. F.x. Razi thinks the meaning is this: “If you have been praying for victory (O believers) – victory has now indeed come onto you. And if you abstain (from sinning), it will be for your own good; but if you revert to it, We (Allah*) shall revoke (Our promise of aid).” Unclear language opens for many ways of understanding verses. And these variants of course also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning.
#####031 8/55b: "- - - the worst beasts - - -". One of the many names Muhammad uses for "non-Muslims". Is it strange that Islam and many Muslims have a superiority complex towards all non-Muslims? - or that they often are reluctant to mingle too much with non-Muslims?
Slander, discrimination, and apartheid.
But here is a fact that is even more chilling: In YA1223 we read about non-Muslims: "The same brute creatures - - -". The distaste and inferiority propaganda against non-Muslims is not a phenomenon of the old times, but is the same now - the comments are written in modern times and are the words of modern commentators.
More slander, discrimination, and apartheid - #############and from today's Islam and Muslims.
If the Quran had been any other book than just a claimed "holy" book belonging to a religion with much political power, it had been prohibited in most civilized countries for inciting to discrimination and apartheid and for distaste mongering, hate mongering, and war mongering.
(There will come a separate small chapter about this when we finish our "operation Quran" - in 2016 or 2017 AD we hope).
032 8/60b: "- - - strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies (non-Muslims*) - - - . A very clear order. Compare this to NT: "Turn the other cheek" (if someone strikes you on the cheek, do not take revenge, but turn the other cheek towards him), and "Love your enemies and pray for them" (f.x. Matt.5/43-48).
033 8/60ba: "- - - enemies - - -". Remember that all non-Muslims are the enemies of Islam and of Muslims - according to Islam.
#####034 8/60c: (A8/64 - 2008 English edition 8/65): "- - - the enemies of Allah - - -". Definition according to A8/64: #######"(The enemies of Allah are*) everyone who deliberately opposes and seeks to undermine the moral laws laid down by Allah" - and those people automatically are "an enemy of those who believe (Muslims*) in Him (Allah*)". The definition of "the enemies of Allah" is very interesting because of the Quran's too often very primitive, medieval or even pre-medieval, and at too many point immoral moral code based on a Nazi-like apartheid suppressive ("Übermench" rule, "Untermench" suppressed) war ideology, and because of the extremely immoral moral underlying and expressed in some of the Sharia laws (f.x. "a woman is to be seriously punished for unlawful sex if she is raped, but cannot bring 4 male witnesses to the act" or: "a man who correctly accuses a woman for unlawful sex is unjust unto Allah, if he cannot bring 4 witnesses" - even though an omniscient Allah knows he is speaking the truth). The definition is given is these words: Allah's enemy is "everyone who deliberately opposes and seeks to undermine the moral laws laid down by Allah (= Muhammad's quoted words in the Quran*) - - -". Oppose f.x. the "lawful and good" military (nearly always Muslim) aggressions and raids, stealing/robbing, raping, extortion, enslaving, betraying ("war is betrayal"), murdering, etc., etc. during "holy wars" - and practically everything is called jihad (holy war) - or opposing the incitements for going to war on the slightest religious reason or alibi ("self defense in the widest meaning of the word" - the ideology that makes every disagreement a cause for jihad) and you are an enemy of Allah.
And at least as bad: As the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is from no god, also its so-called moral also is not from any god, included Allah if he was a god.
Also of sinister meaning is YA's comment that "- - - everyone - - - who actively opposes and seeks to undermine - - - (Allah's/Muhammad's (im)moral laws*) is, "eo ipso", an enemy of those who believe in Him (Allah*)". If you talk against Islam and its partly immoral moral rules, etc. you do not disagree with the Muslims, but you are an enemy of them. No wonder connections - or lack of such - sometimes are strained, and no wonder killing non-Muslims often are ok. Who wants to make friends with enemies? - enemies it is ok to kill. "The Religion of Peace" founded by a good and benevolent god?
And most thought provoking: Everybody living according to normal moral codes based on something like "do to others like you want others do to you", has GOT to break the moral code of the Quran, because this one quite often is different or very different from "do to others like you want others do to you". Thus everybody living according to normal moral codes unavoidably become "enemies of Allah", according to the definition above in this point.
Please compare the Quran's moral code to "do to others like you want others do to you". You must belong to a very special culture to be able to believe the Quran's moral code is even halfway there.
035 8/60d: "- - - and others beside (other enemies of Allah or of you - non-Muslims*), whom ye may not know - - -". YA (comment YA 1226): "There are always lurking enemies whom you may not know, but whom Allah knows. It is your duty to be ready against all, for the sacred Cause under whose banner you are fighting". There always are non-Muslims wanting to attack you, so always beware and be prepared for war with the untrustworthy unbelievers (NB: "the untrustworthy unbelievers", not "the untrustworthy of the unbelievers"). And remember: These comments are not written around 650 AD, but in modern times - they represent today's thinking of (many of) today's influential Muslims.
NB: ALSO REMEMBER THAT FEW IF ANY CULTURES ARE SO PRONE TO MAKE UP AND SO FILLED WITH CONSPIRATION THEORIES AND RESULTING MADE UP "KNOWLEDGE", AS THE MUSLIM ONES. THIS MAY BE A REASON WHY ISLAM AND MUSLIMS "SEE" "ENEMIES" AND "ATTACKS" ALL AROUND, AND CLAIM AND SOMETIMES HONESTLY BELIEVE THEY "HAVE THER RIGHT AND DUTY" TO "DEFEND" THEMSELVEs OR THE RELIGION = F.X. BY LAUNCHING TERROR ATTACKS (REMEMBER THAT WAR IS A PRIVELEGE AND A DUTY IN ISLAM) AGAINST WHOMEVER THEY THINK IS AN EASY TARGET.
036 9/8a: "With (fair words from) their (pagans*) mouths they entice you, but their hearts are averse from you; most of them are rebellious and wicked". A clear message: Do not trust pagans (one of the pieces necessary for producing an "enemy picture" of "the others".)
BUT DO YOU SEE THE IRONY? THESE WORDS ARE FROM THE ONLY BIG GOD(?) AND THE ONLY BIG RELIGION WHICH ACCEPTS - YES, FOR DEFENDING OR PROMOTING THE RELIGION EVEN ADVICES - THE USE OF DISHONESTY, DECEIT, BETRAYAL, AND EVEN THE BREAKING OF OATHS, AS LEGITIMATE AND OK TOOLS OF WORK!
####037 **9/29a: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - -.” A most clear order - - - in spite of “no compulsion in religion” (2/256). One of those clear orders which shows reality and belies the glorious words. Like said before: Whenever there is discrepancy between reality and propaganda, we believe in the reality.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
#########038 9/29c: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - - until they pay jizya (extra tax - sometimes heavy (and there may be land tax in addition - often 50%, sometimes even more)) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” A clear and unmistakable order. The softest word possible: Discrimination or apartheid. There are a number of stronger ones. And the jizya frequently was high - sometimes so high that the victims had to give in and flee for economical reasons. Comments on how it is to live under such helpless apartheid conditions is not necessary - the Negroes in South Africa or the Southern States in USA in earlier times could tell you - even though they at least did not have to pay an extra tax on top of all.
Also see other chapters (in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran") - f.x. “Muslims are better than other people”, like 25/44 or 68/35+36, and “Age Golden Age of Coexistence".
THE CLAIM THAT ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF PEACE, IS SERIOUSLY WRONG.
One more fundamental point: There NEVER was anything like this in the Bible - see f.x. Jesus' words: "Give to Caesar (meaning the emperor*) what is Caesar's (= tax*) and to Yahweh what is Yahweh's (= belief*)", and also the Bible's damning words about "serving Mammon (money*)". Allah's and Muhammad's greed for riches is one more of the really strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus and Muhammad far from in the same religion.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!!
BUT THE MAIN POINT MAY BE THAT THIS IS THE MAIN AND CENTRAL POLITICAL MESSAGE AND ORDER TO THE ENTIRE ISLAM AND ALL MUSLIMS THEN AND FOREVER - A FACT NON-MUSLIMS SHOULD BE AWARE OF AND N E V E R FORGET. THE OFFICIAL GOAL AND ORDER FOR ISLAM IS TO CONQUER EVERYTHING AND SUPPRESS ALL NON-MUSLIMS TO BECOME SLAVES OR SEMI SLAVES UNDER ISLAM, (and pagans worse off than Jews and Christians.)
This sentence must be seen in connection to 9/33j below.
This is the promised future for non-Muslims under Islam. A religion built on a "holy" book so full of errors that the book itself proves there is no god behind it. Perhaps the dark forces, but not any god.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
039 9/29j: "- - - (fight the non-Muslims*) (even if they are) of the People of the Book - - - ". Not to mention the Pagans. An order impossible to misunderstand - from the claimed "good an benevolent god" of "the (claimed) religion of Peace".
***040 9/73b: “Strive (fight*) hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites - - -.” Straight words for your money.
041 9/83: "Never shall ye (some people*) come out (to raid or make war*) with me (Muhammad*), nor fight an enemy (non-Muslim*) with me - - -". To say the very least of it: Most different from NT and its New Covenant. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Not possible is not even the first letter or even comma of the answer.
###042 33/61-62: “They (non-Muslims, hypocrites, etc.*) shall have a curse on them: whenever they are found, they shall be sized and slain (without mercy) (‘no compulsion in religion’ 2/256*). (Such was) the praxis (approved) of Allah among those who lived aforetime (f.x. Jews and Christians*). Muhammad claimed that Allah was just another name for Yahweh – but try to find an order telling that all non-Christians shall be murdered “without mercy” in NT and in the new covenant (f.x. Luke 22/20 in NT) - a covenant Muslims never mention - and NT is what Christianity is built on . Oh, we know very well that persons from Christian countries have done bad things, but that was in spite of their religion – and they were not really Christians deep down – and not in accordance with, or even because of the religion, like the case often is with the “religion of peace” (Muslim-speak for camouflaging the “religion of war”) Islam.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
###043 33/62a: “(Such was) the practice (kill non-believers without mercy*) (approved) of Allah among those who lived aforetime: no change wilt thou find in the practice (approved) of Allah.” Muhammad here refers to the Mosaic and the Christian religions (and he wrongly sets Allah = Yahweh) when he talks about “those who lived aforetime”. But even though OT is hard against many non-Jews, the war and the killing was to get room for living for the Jews, not wanton murdering just because they were not Jews or for plunder and slaves. And in NT: Try to find a single place saying that non-believers shall be murdered just because they have another religion – such an order simply does not exist. (There are 1-2 places in the OT where Yahweh disliked that the Jews did not kill many enough of the enemies, but because the survivors represented future problems, not because they refused to change religion.) The Quran here actually is a 180 degree contradiction to the very core of the teachings of Jesus.
Any god had been lying if he said this, but Muhammad did not know the Bible well, so may be – just may be – he thought from wishful thinking that he spoke the truth, but no matter he was too intelligent not to know he had no reliable source for the claim. ###Correction: This surah is from 625-629 AD = Muhammad now knew more than enough from the old Jewish scriptures and knew he was lying. In any case it was a good statement for a warlord trying to secure and enlarge his platform of power; Self-centered. Selfish? (This surah like said is believed to be from 625 – 629 AD – before he had gained absolute control by conquering Mecca.)
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
044 33/62b: “Such (to kill non-Muslims not living according to Islam’s laws of suppression of non-Muslims*) was the practice (approved) of Allah among the ones that lived aforetime: ####no change wilt thou find in the practice (approved) of Allah (now or in the future*)”. #####If Islam/Muslims grow strong enough some time, this is what to expect, according to their holy book - "no change" of course. How had the world looked today, if the industrial revolution with its superior weapons, ships and economic and military superiority had happened in the Muslim area? - Islam has no moral, ethical, empathetically, ideological or philosophical ideas against suppressing other people - on the contrary it is a religious duty. Actually Islam has no moral or ethical philosophy at all - that was decided once and for all before 1100 AD by the religion, with al Ghazali - "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad" - as the grave digger for philosophy in Islam with his book "The Incoherence of the Philosophers". (There were a few thinkers for some more time - about 100 more years - in Spain, but they got little influence on the mainstream Islam).
045 40/52c: "- - - Wrongdoers - - -". Will the Muslims be among those if the Quran is a made up book? MUCH of what the Quran advices and demands its followers to do, is horrible and immoral and very wrong (Muslims are unable to see it, though, as they have been told from they were toddlers that such things are glorious).
This word also is one of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
046 41/28b: "- - - the enemies of Allah - - -". Each and every non-Muslim - one more of Muhammad's many enmity inducing names for non-Muslims. But all is invalid if Allah does not exist or is nothing supernatural - or is supernatural, but belongs to the dark forces.
047 43/5b: "- - - a people transgressing beyond bounds". One of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims. (The meaning in plain words is "a people who did not accept Muhammad and his new religion".)
048 45/19b: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". One of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
049 45/21d: "- - - those who seek after evil - - -". One of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
050 46/35i: "- - - those who transgress - - -". One of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
**051 47/4b: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight (and remember the Muslims practically always were the aggressors – to gain riches and slaves and power, though called holy wars - - - and some new proselytes*)), smite at their necks - - -.” Surah 47 is from 622 AD and Mecca, but some verses likely from Medina – and it is possible to see the change towards war already. It contradicts and abrogates a lot of peaceful verses. This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5. (At least 91 contradictions).
###052 47/4c: This is a really serious one: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them) - - -.” BUT OUR SOURCES TELL THAT THE WORDS “(in fight)” IS NOT WRITTEN IN THE ARAB TEXT – IT IS ADDED BY THE TRANSLATOR (and by more than one). Muslims primarily shall read the Quran in Arab, and there in case our sources are correct the text is: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers, smite at their necks - - -“. It in case simply is a permanent order to be aggressive.
The real religion of peace. Not to mention a real god of peace.
Al-Taqiyya is the name for "lawful lies" in Islam, and are advised to be used "if necessary" to defend or promote the religion.
######The world should never forget that Islam in Medina was turned into a religion of hate, superiority claims, apartheid, suppression, blood and war, and that this is the Quran and Islam also today, as the surahs from Medina according to Islam's rules for abrogation (making points in the Quran invalid) supersedes the ones from Mecca, because the ones from Medina are younger. Neither should the world ever forget that the Quran and Islam accept the use of dishonesty as a working tool, if that gives a better result - even advice to use it in some cases "if necessary" (to defend or promote Islam). ########Most Muslims are ok persons, but one should never forget neither the demands for war and suppression nor the moral code in the Quran.
053 57/26d: "- - - rebellious transgressors - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names - to say the least of it - for non-Muslims (especially the ones who actively preached against it).
054 58/14a: “Turnest thou (Muhammad/good Muslim*) not thy attention to those who turn (in friendship) to such who have the Wrath of Allah upon them (non-Muslims*)?” That is something you should not do. A good verse for a mullah, a fanatic, an enemy of yours seeking to hurt you, for anybody wishing to launch extrication against anyone - a strong social threat: Do not mingle too much with the bad non-Muslims. A very likely reason - among others - why Muslims in many cultures do not fit in.
055 58/22a: “Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and his Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or kindred.” Really bad people it should not be loved. This sentence deserves no comment, but it is an all too common one in sects where the leaders want full control over their followers - paint an enemy picture of opponents or others, and your followers tend to unite behind you - and tends to be more willing to rob and suppress and kill that bad "enemy".
056 60/1c: "- - - my enemies and yours - - -". Non-Muslims are "our" enemies - no less. (Cfr. the words from terrorists in north Pakistan after murdering 9 tourists + their guide: "Foreigners are our enemies" - a plain and clear point of view and moral code.)
057 60/2a: "If they (non-Muslims*) were to get the better of you, they would behave to you as enemies - - -". This is around 629-630 AD and Muhammad needs an enemy picture of the world outside Islam - then why not produce such an enemy picture? This is one of the many droplets in the Quran used to create it. The truth is that also non-Muslims are humans. Some would be enemies of a war religion as harsh as Islam, but many would be friends or "teachers" trying to make Muslims see what was and is wrong in the Quran and how this proved that the book was not from a god - - - and most would not care neither this way nor that way, unless they were forced to make up their minds about it.
The outside world, included Mecca, also gladly had left them alone, if it was not because of the never ending raids for stealing, killing and taking prisoners for slaves or extortion made by the Muslims.
058 60/2b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
059 60/7a: "- - - those whom ye (Muslims*) (now) hold as enemies". One of Muhammad’s many names for non-Muslims - in this case very clear speech.
060 63/4b: “They (hypocrites/non-Muslims, fake Muslims*) are the enemies - - -”. Definitely you should not be friends with people who have said “no, thank you” to Islam.
