7 Questions for Those Who Claim Islam Is ‘Just Another Religion’

In defense of Donald Trump’s suggestion that Muslim immigration be restricted until we better understand the nature of the Jihadist terror threat, the following is offered up by our long-suffering Summer Intern @BiffSpackle:

    Islam is more of a military tactic than a religion..an effective tactic because it disguises itself as a religion which causes opponents to hesitate in attacking. It is the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing. Islam should be annihilated.

    • James P. Savage

      Agreed!

  • cantonst

    My politically correct conclusion for today…Radical Islam is not the problem…Islam is…It is no religion…

  • James P. Savage

    The answers are:
    None to the first two questions and just plain No to the other 5. I maintain that Islam is NOT a religion, but it IS a Cult of submission and ultimate death if one isn’t Islamic. It has no place among the freedom loving peoples of the world.

    • Naturalism

      Religion has no place among the freedom loving peoples of the world. Think for yourself.

      • sandraleesmith46

        Funny, Yhwh expects us to do that.

        • Naturalism

          Does he? Is that why nobody can agree on what Yhwh wants? because everyone is thinking for themself, and Yhwh isn’t actually talking to anybody?

          • sandraleesmith46

            He talks to us all the time. But, having given each of us free will, He doesn’t think for us. He has put out what He desires of and for us; each individual must decide if, and how much, to accept, for now. The time is soon coming when that will no longer be an option.

    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.

    Excerpt more:

    Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. It also prohibits those who distribute literature that advocates the overthrow of our country, which would include the Koran.

    In fact, there are many verses in the Koran that command Islamists to kill those who do not submit to allah and the prophet. If Congress so desired to hold the White House accountable to the current immigration of refugees (which also must comply with the law), it has the Immigration and Nationality Act to cite. The Administration is breaking that law. The question is “does Congress have the political will to do something about it?” Or shall we be a nation like that in Isaiah 59:14 where, “justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” I think you know the answer, at least for now. But there are a handful of Congressmen who are studying this. Pray.

    • deanbob

      The problem for the politician is that Muslims will lie (either intentionally for the activists or unintentionally for the ignorant) about their intentions as the Quran allows (to further Islam through any deceit necessary).

    THE CURE – THE SOLUTION for the entire world:

    For 1400 years the world has endured invasions by this radical tribe. The world needs to stand up now and deliver a message to Muslims and Islam. It is a sweet and simple request for world peace.

    If Muslims truly are the tribe of peace they would self deport back to Saudi Arabia and leave the rest of the world alone because we are tired of hearing about them.

    • Naturalism

      That’s how the Cherokee feel about you.

        Nice try. I’m part Indian. Cherokee.

        • Naturalism

            Never assume you know everything.

  • aznative

    I AM SICK…..and so is the rest of humanity. ……..any one with love and respect for others faith and love for life is tired of hearing about them. Every nation is in great turmoil and danger of losing their heritages because of this radical cult. This tribe wants to destroy the world. How can such a hateful cult exist in this world in this day and age of mankind? Bigger question why are we tolerating it and giving them a foothold in any nation?

    If Muslims truly are the tribe of peace they would self deport back to Saudi Arabia and leave the rest of the world alone because we are tired of hearing about them.

    Every nation is in great turmoil and danger of losing their heritages because of this radical cult.

    Our nation has gone from talking about beautiful roses, job promotions, new businesses, beautiful sermons, school carnivals, class field trips, excitement about the birth of a grandchild, volunteer programs to a nation that wastes it time every moment of the day talking about sharia, islam, muslims, terrorists, beheadings, rape, stoning, murder, child brides, pedophiles, the koran, phony racism, riots, hatred of our veterans, hatred of our flag, hatred of our constitution, hatred and breaking of our laws by this illegal unconstitutional foreign federal govt now operating in our nation illegally, including illegal UN authority.

    Do we really want our nation to be a nation of extreme turmoil daily, worn torn streets and living like the savages do in the Middle East.

    It is time to restore the greatest nation to ever exist the United States of America. We were a peaceful, kind, loving, giving, productive nation until we gave the devil a foothold in our nation.

    Americans – choose life!
    Americans – choose liberty!
    Americans – choose freedom!
    Americans – choose the restoration of our constitution and sovereignty!
    Americans -choose to honor our heritage, history, founding fathers and founding principles! And our flag!
    Americans – choose PEACE!
    Americans – choose to honor OUR GOD!
    Americans – CHOOSE exceptionalism!
    Americans – choose pride of country and our veterans!
    AMERICANS – CHOOSE LIFE!

    As an American I’m honestly sick and tired of hearing about Muslims, Islam, the Koran, sharia, burkas, beheadings, banning bacon, banning guns, banning pastors, banning food from our children (they have the right to eat whatever they want) in my homeland. Our country has been in turmoil since 9/11. Why? Because Muslims have no place in our country period. I’m tired of hearing about them. Their heritage has no place in my homeland. It is time to restore our heritage, jobs, industry and patriotism. It is time to show honor to OUR GOD, OUR MILITARY, OUR HERITAGE and it doesn’t include Islam and Muslims. No this is not a Muslim nation period. This is our homeland. We have not had one moment of peace and quiet since this radical tribe arrived neither has any other nation. My dad did not fight for the Islamic way of life period.

    Every nation they enter is in turmoil, fighting, having their heritage and ancient landmarks removed, their way of lives challenged. The problem is that they have no right to say or demand anything in any country. It is time to Send them all back to Saudi Arabia. We can love them there, but no country will ever have any peace with this cult in their nation. They only Come to dominate and destroy and take what we and our founders built.

    The United States is the greatest civilized nation to EVER exist. Muslims and Islam will take this nation back to the prehistoric ages.

    It is time to pack their bags now.

    Look at their heritage, they have lived like scavengers their whole existence. Do we really want our country to look like the Middle East, uncivilized and war torn and barbaric. Hello.

    Really Americans we are going to allow this and settle with what this illegal foreign radical unconstitutional terrorist syndicate is doing in OUR nation. We owe our founders and soldiers more than this. Their deaths, fighting to preserve our heritage must not be in vain.

    It is time to honor this nation, our heritage and kick the traitors and enemies out.

    I honestly don’t care if I ever hear words tied to Muslims ever again. After 9/11 and their barbaric ways we shouldn’t waste our energy or time on this radical cult. They deserve nothing from
    This great nation. Absolutely nothing.

    Send them all home, all of them. We can love them in Saudi Arabia. It is time for peace again in the world.

    • deanbob

      But since they are not, they won’t!

  • aznative

    Not biblical. It is a cult. Muhammad is not mentioned in the bible. Because Islam is not biblical.
    It is a cult created by a 54 year old pedophile that married a 6 year old little girl and brutally raped her at age 9.

    How could anyone condone the actions of this cult? Anyone?

    -brutal rape of women and children
    -genital mutilation
    -stoning
    -beheadings
    -burning alive
    -body dismemberment

    The Helper was to be in the disciples. How could the Helper be Muhammad? Muhammad was a flesh and blood person who is no longer alive. Muhammad is not in Jesus’ followers and never will be.

    What can we conclude? Was Muhammad alive at the time of Jesus’ apostles? No. Was Muhammad ever called the ‘Spirit of Truth’? No. Did Muhammad live with the apostles forever? No. Did Muhammad live inside the apostles? No. This prophesy cannot be a reference to Muhammad. Who is it about? The Bible states the truth in the following verses. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” (John 14:26). It is certain, then, that the Helper is the Holy Spirit (Ruh Al-Kudus) of God.

    • Naturalism

      “Muhammad is not mentioned in the bible. ”

      I can see your grasp on time periods is strong.

      Muhammad came hundreds of years after the events of the Bible. If you found a mention of Muhammad in the Bible, it would discredit the entire script… just like the anachronisms that the Bible does in fact have.

      • sandraleesmith46

        Wrong. Long before Muhammad appeared Yhwh KNEW he’d come to be, and described his ancestors as well as his followers exactly as they have historically presented themselves to the world. He also told us how they would finally be stopped.

        • Naturalism

          Oh okay, well then why not just have one quick little bit in the Bible that says “There’s going to be another religion, called Islam, started by a guy named Muhammad, and I want to be super duper clear that THAT is a false religion and THIS is the true religion. You can tell, because I am accurately predicting the future here.”

          It would have been SO SO SO EASY for any extant god to convince everyone to do what he wants them to do. So easy. And yet… zero gods have ever done that. I wonder why?

          • sandraleesmith46

            He’d already defined what constitutes a false religion, and a false deity; He expects us to be able to comnect the dots and recognize the false from the true. He knows how He created us, with what capacities, and expects us to use the provided faculties appropriately. Those who KNOW Him, through His Word, and in-dwelling Holy Spirit find this not to be terribly challenging.

    • sandraleesmith46

      Muhammad can’t even be a legitimate prophet! Yeshua told His followers He had given them ALL the information they needed and that the Helper (Holy Spirit) would clarify it to them, when He came, so that no further revelation would be given than what He gave them. Muhammad came along 600 years later…

      • aznative

        But Muslims believe that Muhammad is the comforter. Wow That is so wrong on so many levels. There is no way that God sent a pedophile who preached abuse of women and children not to mention beheadings, stoning, burning alive of others. This is probably one of the worst cases in history of a man making himself a God. Except for one we are witnessing today (a whole other story).

        • sandraleesmith46

          As a survivor of pedophilia, I can absolutelyand unequivocally assure you there is NO POSSIBLE way on Yhwh God’s green Earth a pedophile can REMOTELY be equated with, or construed as, the Comforter of Whom Yeshua spoke! A pedophile is a terrorist by nature! The Comforter is the oppositein character. I know Him too!
          O IS a Muslim, as well as a pathological narcissist, so no further explanation required there.

    Forwarding: ?

    2016 is the year Al Qaida has set for the beginning total confrontation with The West. The migration – hirja – in 2015, was probably a preparatory step. But they could never have done any of this, in Europa or USA, if they didn’t have the cooperation of the government and the political and financial elite. It’s only logical that there must exist an agreement between the western leaders and the major muslim organization on the islamization of The West. The agreement probably secures continuing power and wealth for the elite, and in turn they will make muslims a privileged and protected group during a “transitional period”. After this period, The West will be 100% muslim, the elites will all have converted to islam, and our christian and humanistic tradition will have been destroyed. This is exactly what is described in a plan drawn up in 2005 by Tony Blair and The Labour party in England. According to John Joyce in New English Review this plan is called “The Lancaster Plan” and is just as sinister and terrible as may be suspected. The basic premise is that it is a historical inevitability that The West becomes muslim at some point, and we might just as well make sure it happens according to a planned timeline.The idea is to avoid most of the bloodshed by giving in to muslims demands in a piecemeal and controlled fashion. If this plan really is true and not a hoax, It reveals just how indifferent our politicians are to everything about our civilization and our people.

    • deanbob

      How can Tony and other parliament just sit idly by and accept this?

      • sandraleesmith46

        They’re also Satan’s minions; that’s how.

    • sandraleesmith46

      No, it’s NOT “inevitable”, what IS inevitable is that Islam will cease to exist, when Yeshua returns, in a bloody war that will cause streets to run deep with blood, as described in John’s Revelation. Muslims will die in their millions, along with many of their erstwhile victims, who also reject Yhwh and His Son Yeshua. That’s what’s GOING to happen, and likely much sooner than Blair and friends can imagine.

  • aznative

    Jeb bush is wrong. We don’t need Muslims or islam. They are not part of this nations heritage period. They didn’t help build this nation.

    “We don’t have any responsibility to protect a foreign citizen. They don’t have First Amendment rights. They have no rights under American constitutional law. Americans have rights, and it’s our job to protect Americans, not the reputation of Islam.”

    Islam is a cult created by a 54 year old pedophile that married a 6 year old girl and brutally raped her at age 9.

    No American in their right mind would honor this cult.

    Our hope is in God not a radical 1400 year cult.

    1 Timothy 2:5 ESV

    For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Bush is attacking the very faith that this nation was founded upon by supporting a cult that has been invading nations for over 1400 years.

    You can’t serve two masters.

    At this point I do not believe that you can be an American and support Islam or Muslims period. It is a war of civilizations. Theirs against ours period. They do not come to assimilate. They come to conquer and destroy. Every nation in the world is on fire because of this radical cult. Trump is right.

    The world is on fire because of this cult. And no our constitution does not protect foreign nations, foreign cults or foreign religions period.

    Our Founding Fathers figured out quickly that Islam was not about negotiation. It was about death.

    President Jefferson waged war on the Muslim pirates and chased them back across the oceans, and John Adams nailed when he said the prophet was a “military fanatic” and one who mandated his followers stop at nothing and who “…arrogates everything to himself by force of arms.”

    Our current President, as arrogant as Mohammed, learned nothing, nor does he care to with respect to our Founders’ experiences when dealing with Muslims—you don’t deal with them, you rid yourself of them.

  • Can a Muslim be a good American?
    This question was forwarded to a friend who worked
    in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.

    The following is his
    reply:

    “Theologically –
    no, because his allegiance is to Allah.

    Religiously – no,
    because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam
    (Qur’an 2:256).

    Scripturally – no,
    because his allegiance is to the Five Pillars of Islam, and the
    Qur’an.

    Geographically – no,
    his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer 5 times a
    day.

    Socially – no, his allegiance to Islam forbids him to befriend atheists, Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no,
    because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders) who teach
    the annihilation of Israel and the destruction of America, “the great Satan” since the Barbary Pirates of the 1770’s.

    Domestically – no, because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat his wife when she disobeys him(Qur’an 4:34).

    Intellectually – no,because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically –
    no, because Islam, Muhammad, and the Qur’an does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist!

    Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic, in a THEOCRACY.

    Spiritually – no, because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ we are referring to the Christian’s God and not Allah. The goal is to make all submit, and/or die!

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation, perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans/Canadians; they cannot and will not integrate into the great melting pot of America.

    The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

    Muslims everywhere have said they “will destroy us from within.”

    There is no such thing as a “moderate Muslim”. Non-supporters of Jihad, even Muslims, are beheaded for Apostasy! Same fate as adulterers, lesbians, homosexuals, criminal deviants.

    Research shows:

    US Public Law 414, created by congress in 1952, signed by POTUS Harry S. Truman, prohibits entry, by any who promote, support, or intend the overthrow of the government of the United States of America. Fourteen (14) Court cases support this law, to protect America.
    Islam is diametrically & diabolically opposed to Democracy!

    And, opposed especially, to any governments that are based upon “the God of Abraham”.

    The history, intent, purpose, of Islam is to overthrow all governments, and establish a Theocracy Caliphate! There are some 7 million Muslims in America, in 2015. (US Gov’t ).

    Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic, in a THEOCRACY.

  • KDC

    Agree with Bierstadt below, it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. If called a religion, they can attain entrance anywhere (USA) where people are reluctant to fight against it. Calling it a religion gives them certain rights, whereas calling it an ideology, opens the door to war against it.

    • Barbaree

      obama is their sponsor!

  • Naturalism

    1. I don’t know of any, which makes Muslim-majority countries the same as Republican-majority states, with the caveat that the red states were forced against their will to recognize the minority rights.

    2. Mormons prohibit outsiders from entering their most sacred Tabernacles. Catholics prohibit outsiders from entering the Papal library and other Church sites.

    3. Because they are the kind of backward repressive cavepeople that, in America, would join Trump’s calls to close mosques.

    4. Neither, really, but if we had to pick then it would be “just a religion”. There’s no unified Islam to be making such demands.

    5. Yes. They should have the same protections afforded to other religions, which includes practicing but not forcing their religion. If only we could teach that to American Christians.

    6. Yes, of course, millions of American and other Western Muslims already do this. If they couldn’t then they wouldn’t get along in our society, which they do.

    7. Well, yes they could co-exist in the same way that the Orthodox Jews and the Amish and the Westboro Baptists and others co-exist with secular society while doing all those things. But… they should still knock it off, all of them.

    Those were seven stupid questions with simple obvious answers. Hardly the rhetorical exercise intended by the idiot who wrote them.

    And NAZIism is just another political party.

  • Marc Goldstone

    Islamic Terrorism
    Neither the President nor any of the candidates have identified the root cause of the problem we are facing from Islamic terrorism. They are fixated on destroying yet another subsidiary of Islam which will accomplish absolutely nothing to make us safer. Fighting such a war without understanding the root cause of the terrorism will only serve to bankrupt the USA in which case the terrorists win. So what is the root
    of the evil?
    The problem isn’t “radical Islam”, it isn’t ISIS, nor is it Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, the PLO or any of the other “Islamic terrorist organizations.” Even if all of the aforementioned were obliterated to
    the last man, woman and child, the teachings within Islam will in short order indoctrinate a new crop of fanatic killers. The fundamental problem is ISLAM itself because it isn’t a religion of peace, nor is it compatible with our Constitutional Republic and bill of rights. In fact the Muslims that just watch the terrorist acts and that don’t take an active part in them are in the eyes of Islam not “moderate Muslims,” they are cowards and also bad Muslims for not joining the Islamic moral imperative of Jihad. The true Muslims are the Jihadists, murderers, and rapists… because they follow the letter of Islam. They are not a fringe radical sect as political correctness dictates, but devout Muslims that have for centuries been a cancer on civilization. In its zeal for oil, western civilization has unwittingly uncorked the evil Genii which may well require WWIII in order to defeat it.
    Recognizing Islam for what it is, (the blueprint for a theocratic form of government, and a barbaric 7’th century legal framework disguised as a religion) isn’t it lunacy to accept more Muslims into the
    USA without extraordinary measures being taken to vet them including but not limited to passing a lie detector test? If they support Sharia Law which is the antithesis to our Constitution, then they must not be admitted. If they believe infidels must convert to Islam or be killed, then they must not be admitted. Passing a lie detector test is no different than that required of those seeking certain government jobs. Given the ferocity and barbarism of recent Islamic attacks on western civilization it would be prudent to recognize the importation of Muslims as being no different than welcoming Islamic “smart bombs” (human Cruise Missiles) into our heartland.

    It is painfully obvious that we have little chance of detecting and thwarting all Islamic terror attacks, and furthermore we can little afford to divert financial resources from other important domestic priorities.
    Lastly Congress must define RELIGION since it is not defined in the Constitution. I propose that religion be defined as a belief system which requires tolerance and acceptance of those that have a different
    belief system. Islam unless rewritten would not qualify as a religion and as such those that subscribe to it can be excluded from this country, Mosques would be taxed as ordinary property and would have no special constitutional protections. To assure that the next 1400 years will be better than the last, Islam can and must be fixed by deleting the verses that incite violence and Jihad. Those that would oppose doing so would be exposed as either being jihadists or those susceptible to jihadist indoctrination. In addition a verse should be
    added requiring that those believing in other religions are to be accepted and tolerated.
    And then there is the issue of women’s rights and LGBT acceptance…

    Revelation 22:18-19 ESV

    I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book

  • wandamurline

    The answer to the above is all Hell No…it is NOT a religion, it is a way of life and a cult….all Islamists need to be deported along with the illegals….if they are NOT going to assimilate and become an American…then they do not deserve citizenship because American citizenship makes you take an oath to America, which these people do not do.

  • pFeather

    Islam is in total opposition to the American tenets of individual freedom and liberty, equal rights for all faiths, gays and women. Islam is opposed to our constitution, free speech and religious tolerance. Islam has no place in America, unless and until it embraces the American culture and life style. Islam is a religion of intolerance, religious oppression, oppression of women and violence.

  • LADYL

    I would like to see one reporter or politician have the guts to ask those questions but even if you could what muslim would have the guts to answer?

  • Barbaree

    The big question is: Why do they emigrate to Western countries? If they refuse to assimilate, then why? Because they’re here to colonize.

    How can there be “moderate” muslims? It doesn’t make sense. If they were moderate, they would leave the “religion”. If they stay muslim, then they must believe in the principles.

  • Agent938

    The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated to the replacement of the Constitution of the United States w/Sharia Law as the supreme law of the land. In other words they are enemies of The Constitution
    of the United States. Obama openly supports The Muslim Brotherhood both here & abroad and has appointed its members to top positions in his administration up to & including the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security as well as supporting them militarily in their attempt to take over Egypt. This an obvious violation of both his Presidential & Senatorial oaths of office in which he swore to
    “…protect & defend The Constitution of the United
    States…against all enemies, foreign & domestic.” So, my
    question is: Why is there no official investigation or anything of
    that sort related to Obama’s open support for an organization that
    openly proclaims on its own website the goal of “The
    introduction of the Islamic Shari`ah as the basis controlling the
    affairs of state and society?”

    Question # 8. Why do Muslims want to live among infidels?

  • paul

    I wish all Muslims would go to North Korea, China or Russia with the same demands. The end result would be very interesting. I bet Putin would solve the problem in about a week or less.
