UK: ‘Dhimmi’ judge jails a man for one year for putting anti-Islam images in his window

Darren Conway, a self-confessed supporter of right-wing organizations, from Gainsborough, who plastered his front window with anti-Islamic literature has been jailed for a year.

(Since there are no pictures of what he posted in his window, I will post what I hope was there)

This is Lincolnshire  The court was told on Tuesday that carer Conway had covered the front window of his ground floor flat in Heaton Street in Gainsborough with 17 photographs and posters. Many were offensive – attacking both the prophet Mohammed and the Muslim religion. He was convicted following a short trial earlier this year, when sentencing was postponed for reports to be prepared.

Judge Michael Heath told Conway: “To describe the material you put in your window as grossly offensive is an understatement. “There is no place in a civilised society for conduct of that sort and the only sentence I can justify for it is an immediate custodial sentence.”.

Christopher Lowe, prosecuting, said that Conway, who admitted to supporting both the BNP and the English Defence League, was caught after a member of the public complained to police.

“Later that day police attended the premises and found 17 posters and images in the front window in full public view,” said Mr Lowe. “The majority of the displayed posters and images were undoubtedly offensive to the Islamic faith.

“Conway was arrested at the scene and taken into police custody. “He appeared to make out that those posters were, more or less, an opportunity to get back at his landlord. “He was trying to justify them on a political and religious basis.

Tony Stanton, in mitigation, said Conway appeared to have displayed the material as part of an ongoing dispute with his landlord.

He said Conway had no history of similar offending and spent much of his time caring for his elderly father. His father has suffered multiple strokes and cannot get out,” said Mr Stanton. “This defendant involves himself in regular activity such as shopping for his father. That person would suffer should he lose his liberty.”

  1. Today on the Daily Mail:

    How Qatar bought Britain: They own the Shard. They own the Olympic Village. And they don’t care if their Lamborghinis get clamped when they shop at Harrods (which is theirs, too)

    Qatar is smaller than Belgium yet seems to be laying claim to the future of our capital.

    Its real influence, however, which could yet shape the lives of millions of ordinary Britons, is invisible and still growing.

    [...]‘They have vast sums to spend, they invest in our strategic industries and that in turn allows them to influence the type of society we are.’

    [..]Its list of friends is long and unorthodox: from the U.S. and Iran, to Hamas and the Taliban, which both have ‘offices’ in its capital, Doha.

  2. BNI,
    Sorry for all the post tonight… but something has really set me off with all this crappy muslime filth. I know that having to moderate all the post can be time consuming and sometimes just a royal pain in the arse.
    I’m just sooooo glad to see you back. Missed you like a sister. :) And thank you for your hard work.
    kaj

  3. Anti-Islamic material equals a year in prison, but a group of drunk muslim savages, screaming, “kill the white bitch”, gets a slap on the wrist. DISGUSTING!

  4. You are ale small minded ignorant idiots basically.

    You see on the news that some Muslim terrorists tried to bomb somewhere, and then you hate all muslims. There’s been plenty terrorists from other religions, but no one seems to notice.

    Islam teaches against violence, and its only a small few which are “terrorists” and don’t even follow the religion properly. The people who hate muslims obviously have never met a Muslim in person and assume they all are terrorists who hate America/ Britain.

    If a Christian bombed a place, would everyone hate Christians? No, they would hate that one person, not a whole group of people. If a girl killed a load of people, would everyone hate girls? Of course not, thats just stupid. So why do it to Muslims? I think people need to learn more about them and be shown the good things they do before they judge them like that. It makes me sick!!!

    You people are spoon-fed by the media propaganda, most people have wrong information about Islam, most would qoute Quranic verses out of context without reading the whole text, most have the misconception that Islam encourages innocent killing and most still claim Prophet Muhammed (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was pedophile when they have no ides what they are uttering.

    • If you are a muslin then you know Islam is dead. It died in 1948.
      Therefore the most you could call your self is a mohommedist.following Sharia.
      If you were demanded by your Imam to stop following the Law of the Land What would you do?
      If pressure were put on you you would be just as crazed as the rest that you say are radicals.
      I had several mohommedists that I at one time considered friends, after 9/11 they laughed and thought it was not enough.
      So sit on it.

    • Shalom,

      As there are so many false premises within your post, I will attempt to take this one point at a time for the sake of clarity.

      “You are ale small minded ignorant idiots basically.”
      Not so ignorant as to be able to use correct spelling and grammar in that which is not our first (or second, or third) language. With the advent of on-line translation, anyone can post or read posts in any language without resorting to a poor pidgin.

      “You see on the news that some Muslim terrorists tried to bomb somewhere, and then you hate all muslims.”
      I do not hate any muslims. I DO hate what islam teaches, what muslims do, and what they (islam and muslims) stand for. You can not truly love anything unless you hate that which seeks to destroy those things you love. This is not because of the news. This is not because of a bombing. This is simply because I love people, and islam destroys people; I love life, islam destroys life; I love freedom, beauty, history, integrity, honesty, decency, progress, science, understanding, and many other things that I believe are worth fighting for, islam seeks to destroy all of these things that I love.

      “There’s been plenty terrorists from other religions, but no one seems to notice.”
      Granted, no one has noticed. There indeed must be this vast number of terrorist attacks occurring every day that go completely unnoticed by anyone, anywhere on the planet. Surely this number vastly exceeds the more than 18,000 deadly terror attacks that have been carried out in the name of islam, its false deity, and its false prophet within the last 10 years. So completely unnoticed is this vast, murderous onslaught by followers of other faiths, that even police, hospital and other emergency records have neglected to record these acts. Granted, no one has noticed; it is difficult to notice that which does not occur. Simply put, this statement is so ludicrous as to defy any semblance of reason. The evidence for terror attacks carried out in the name of islam, ordered in the name of islam, and planned in the name of islam, ALL sanctioned by the texts of islam and ALL following in the murderous footsteps of the founder of islam, is overwhelming and indisputable. The evidence for terrorist attacks carried out in the name of any/all other religions is almost completely absent (I think I might have come across one such event).

      “Islam teaches against violence,”
      This has already been well covered by the post of “Anon”, above. This is a half-truth at best; islam teaches against violence only insofar as that violence is against muslims, it MANDATES violence against all others.

      “ and its only a small few which are “terrorists” “
      Some would argue your definition of a “small few”, but on the bright side, since many of the terrorists recently have been “suicide bombers”, there are fewer now than there used to be, and that is a good thing.

      “and don’t even follow the religion properly.”
      They (the terrorists) believed what “Mad Man” Mo taught, they sought to the best of their ability to follow those teachings… how is this improper? Is it improper because they did they not kill “all” who do not submit, as commanded? Is it improper because they used bombs instead of beheading their victims as the koran commands?

      “The people who hate muslims obviously have never met a Muslim in person and assume they all are terrorists who hate America/ Britain.”
      I have met numerous muslims in person, such at the ones who beat me and left me for dead several years ago (first meeting), or the ones who interrupted a Scripture class a few weeks ago by coming up to the table my student and I were at and starting to throw punches, saying “you f-ing Jews need to leave” (I lost a tooth, one of them lost control of his bladder when I stood and he saw my Colt .44).
      I do not assume that all who call themselves muslims are like this, but all who actually follow islam are. I personally like to believe that at least some who call themselves muslims do not follow islam because of the horrors of islam, and as such, may some day save themselves by leaving islam.

      “If a Christian bombed a place, would everyone hate Christians? No, they would hate that one person, not a whole group of people.”
      Quite true, but also quite irrelevant. It is not one muslim that has bombed a place, but thousands who have not only “bombed a place”, but tortured, maimed, mutilated, beheaded, and burned hundreds of thousands, all in the name of their ideology, its false deity and their false prophet. Likewise, when they did so, they were following the indisputable teachings of that ideology, its false deity and their false prophet. Were someone who called themselves a “Christian” to do these things, the Christian community as a whole would reject them because they went “against the faith”. When a muslim does these things, there can not be and is no such universal rejection on the part of the islamic community, because their actions are firmly within the teachings of islam. True, an isolated individual might stand up and say that an islamic terrorist attack was wrong, but it is also true that the greater the atrocity, the greater the celebration by the islamic community as a whole; this has been recorded time after time.

      “If a girl killed a load of people, would everyone hate girls? Of course not, thats just stupid.”
      See above. What is really “stupid” about this comparison is the equating of a gender (“girl”) with an ideology. Half of the population of the world is female, just as half of the population is male, they did not choose to be so, and there is nothing they can do to change that. Those who are muslim CHOOSE to be muslim, and can likewise choose to not be muslim.

      “So why do it to Muslims?”
      It is because muslims choose to be muslims. They choose to follow a psychopath. They choose to hate life. Christianity does not teach or promote murder and destruction. Islam does. A girl can be just a girl without killing “a load of people”. A muslim can not be a muslim, can not follow their false prophet, WITHOUT resorting to lying, murder, rape and other atrocities; to do so would make them apostate, and hence, NOT a muslim.

      “I think people need to learn more about them and be shown the good things they do before they judge them like that.”
      Please name those good things… we are waiting. And, please, while we are waiting, try to find some instance of a muslim doing “good things” for those who are NOT muslim. …oh, sorry, I forgot, that is forbidden in the koran and other islamic writings.

      “It makes me sick!!!”
      More so, or less so than the atrocities committed in the name of the islamic false deity that you can find chronicled and documented on every page of this site?

      “You people are spoon-fed by the media propaganda,”
      Actually, the media is doing an excellent job at doing everything it can to whitewash and ignore the abomination that is islam, and to ridicule and destroy the detractors of islam. Were we to follow “media propaganda”, we would all LOVE islam, and believe it to be a religion of peace.

      “ most people have wrong information about Islam,”
      Can’t dispute that, but, gradually, as the atrocities of islam become so extreme that they can not be ignored even by someone utterly dedicated to doing so, more people are coming to an understanding of islam. By reading the islamic texts, and listening to the teachings and preachings of the top islamic schollars and preachers, the picture of islam isbecoming more clear and accurate on a daily basis; a picture painted with the blood of islam’s own victims and captioned by the words of islam’s own false prophet.

      “most would qoute Quranic verses out of context without reading the whole text,”
      Such as those who would claim that islam teaches peace and non-violence?

      “most have the misconception that Islam encourages innocent killing”
      Got me there, according to islam, only muslims are innocent, and all infidels are guilty, so by the rules of islam, islam does not encourage “innocent killing”. It just looks that way to an outsider because someone who is not a muslim can not understand how a school-child is “guilty” and deserving of death.

      “and most still claim Prophet Muhammed (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was pedophile when they have no ides what they are uttering.”
      This one is difficult. Please enlighten us. Just how is having sexual relations with a child NOT pedophilia?… I thought that was the definition… Pardon the error.

      I do not expect the “proud muslim” to read this, but if we do not rehearse among ourselves calm, reasoned answers to the abundant lies of islam, we will be unprepared to answer those lies when confronted with them in a public discourse.

      • Let me explain Prophet Muhammad’s marriage. It was a marriage that both parties agreed upon, including Aisha and her family and was not criticized by anyone in their time. The marriage was welcomed by the community. It is also emphasized by many sources that Aisha had reached puberty before marriage, at nine years old. Aisha’s marriage to the Prophet allowed her to become closer to her religion of Islam while helping the prophet deliver his message, even after his death. Main Source: http://www.islamic-awareness.org/Polemics/aishah.html

        Please go to this website http://quran.com and read the english translation for the quran. You will see that the quran does not encourage innocent killings. It explains the real teachings of Islam directly from the quran and if you see a verse that supports killing innocent people let me know. It describes punishment only to the wrongdoers by no one but Allah on the day of judgement. Look at Anon’s quotes and also read the verses around them to understand the entire message. I know you already read the quran but I think this could teach you a lot about Islam that you do not know.

      • Raping a child is never a “marriage”, no matter how many pathologically deranged people are around who like the idea. Both parties agreed. And this means …What? if you are so delusional that you believe a six (at the time of the “marriage”) or even a nine (at the time the rapeing officially began) year old CHILD has the maturity and understanding to be able to “agree” to such an arrangement, than there is likely no hope for a return to humanity without direct intervention by the Lord (not the one of Islam, the REAL one). This is precisely why pedophilia is a crime; children do not have the faculties to make such choices.
        Just because sick people have an appreciation for their debaucheries, and associate with others who likewise share their penchant for being vile, the heinous acts of these people do not suddenly become virtuous.
        If Aisha’s parents agreed to this, they were either as sick and twisted as the false prophet himself, or so fearful that he would have them murdered as he had had so many murdered before them, that they were willing to sacrifice their own daughter in order to save their lives.
        The fact that Mo surrounded himself with individuals of equally low charachter likewise does not excuse or elevate his actions to the level of decency.
        If ten thousand slavering pedophiles had lined up to congratulate the false prophet Mo in his sickness, his depravity would still be abominable.
        Yes, this horrendous event helped to propagate the false prophet Mo’s message of hatred, self indulgence and domination. while promoting the molestation of children.
        How is that a good thing?
        You have said that you ONLY use the koran, and claim that we are taking things out of context. Interesting since it is the hadith and other associated texts which are the only way to apply context to the meandering, disjointed morass of pseudo-intellectual, quasi-philosophical drivel that is the koran.
        I can read for myself. If I wanted to find someone to tell me how the koran does not mean what it says, and how all of the main islamic scholars are wrong, I would listen to CNN. I do not need to go to a website for that.

      • You have developed a natural hate towards the religion of Islam without completely understanding it. You may have issues with the Prophet’s marriage but you still do not realize the whole story behind it even though I provided a perfect website to explain everything. You say the quran commands killing of nonbelievers but when I tell you it is not true, you won’t even go back and reread to fully understand the Prophet’s message. You also talk about your Lord as if he is different from my Lord. We all have only one god and he is Allah.

    • And luckily…. your confusion isn’t contagious. There is no Islamic God, only idol worshipping, human sacrifice and suicidal lunatics that are unable to understand why their mothers look like fathers adorned with Burkas.

  5. There are extremists in every religion. The quran never orders for a muslim to kill. Sadly, only a small percentage of extremists were able to create a false stereotype for the 1.5 billion muslims in the world.

    • From better sources than you there are only 900,000,000. mohommedism is shrinking fast.
      When the finale Crusade ends there will be not one mohommedist left.
      Beside platitudes don’t cut it.

  6. A few people have got his address and phone number, but I heard the house was under armed guard all day and there’s unconfirmed reports that he was arrested for enciting racial hatred. Another one from the terrorist hotbed called Dewsbury, home of the leader of the 7/7 bombers.

  7. What can you say? This is Merrie Olde England where the liberal, stupid, give everything to everybody reigns supreme.
    They have gone sooooo far in allowing these always insulted muslim bastards to run over them and their British laws that they may never recover what was once their land.

    This is their fault. The liberals in the U.S. had better take note.

    In the meantime, the stupid English had better get used to having their fish and chips and their smoked kippers replaced by falafel and broad beans.

    How dumb can you get ? look at England.

    • sweetolebob,,you insult all Brits with your comments,,but WE still dont have a MUSLIM AT THE TOP OF OUR GOVERNMENT,,so dont be so critical of the Brits, because WE dont want this Crap,,you may be anti British government but I am too and I know of 200,000 edl members that feel the same..we are not on our own !!!

      • Ole Bob likes to insult the British, Budgie, safe enough with the Atlantic in the way, hehe. We aren’t quite so soft as you like to make out, silly ole Bob, save your poison for your actual enemies.

  8. UK – Muslim charged with 3 rapes

    Blackburn- A 24-YEAR-OLD Muslim has appeared in court charged with raping three young girls – the first alleged offence being committed when he was just 11 years old.

    Firdosh Mohammed Umarji, 24, of July Street, Blackburn, faces six charges of rape, three of gross indecency and one of indecent assault.

    Two of the girls involved were aged eight at the time of the incidents and the third was six-years-old.

    Umarji was sent on bail to Preston Crown Court when he appeared before Blackburn magistrates.

  9. The British have become trendoid since the death of Winston Churchill.

    ACTUALLY, a lot of Brits today are just like CHAMBERLAIN!

    CHAMBERLAIN…PEACE IN OUR TIME…APPEASEMENT!

    You can’t appease a crocodile.

    ISLAM IS A CROCODILE.

    • You are so so wrong “preceptor”,,the people ,, don’t want this,,but laws put in place during Blair’s time has meant that the people are intimidated and afraid to speak out,,But like a prison with a bad governor running it,the pot is Boiling,,Like you we have made bad choices in leaders in the top jobs,Obuma being in the Muslim brotherhood,And the EU controlling our land now,,Make no Mistake they are,,with Nato the military wing,
      It would appear that we are heading to civil war,,and the people at the top are pulling the strings,,your Rothschild,etc,,You may wonder why,,,how many times have you heard the phrase THE NEW WORLD ORDER,,this is what its all about,,there can be no other reason, to destroy our cultures,,I march with the EDL as I hope some one will take notice, But only Last week we were told by the EU,that we must take in 12000 Indians.And unemployment is so very high,,these Indians will be feeding from the Social pot,not from money earned. Our governments hands are tied,,we have been sold out as you too have been..,,NS.

  10. You will notice that when any of these rabid animals is caught on film, they always have their faces covered so you can’t see who they are. If they are so proud of being muzzies, then they should show their face.

    • Because these are vigilante guerillas who want to blend in with the population and live to fight jihad another day. They know if we got Bin Laden, we will get them too.

      Jihadists are hunted by Western countries and by Moz countries too. Jihad shows Islam is dysfunctional…not even Moz countries want jihad.

  11. This is sad, if things keep going the way they are there will be civil war. How could there not be as judges let 5 black muslim bitches off because they we’re drunk and not use to drinking as muslims as they beat, kicked and stomped a white girl. All while screaming kill the white slag, kill the white bitch. A hate crime screaming kill the white bitch and nothing is done. WTF!!!!?????? Has the queen of England converted to Islam or is she just F#CK$NG stupid!!?? I say every white person move here leave the UK to become the islamic hell hole the government is making it and one day we all go back and go to war with them all. This is bs and I would not be surprised at all when the gates of the scum doing this to the UK will never be high enough to protect them. The people there are getting fed up and it is clear the government has been bought and paid for by extremists and oil rich TERRORISTS. Hey queen of England where the F$#K are you and why do you call yourself a queen? Anyone in office or in power at all in any way that just sits on their ass and watches this shit go on should be tried for treason. The punishment for treason is on the books go see what it is! Same for you liberal scum here in America treason trials in the near future.

    • Again its ok to critise our queen or our government, but the people have had a generation on miss information with liberal multi culture thrown down their throats,,You watch Obama turn on Israel as he will do before he is out of office he has promised the arabs,we know this,,,and then talk about who is to blame,,,what then,about queen and country,,would you say,,she hasn’t had a say for generations that is why we have a parliament,,,you have your own problems that mirrors ours …NS…

    • Sad to say but Queen Elizabeth is nothing more than a landmark. Her kingdom is being taken over by the muzzies and instead of sending the troops to get rid of them, she has to bow to her ‘elected’ leaders. I’ve never understood why there is a Queen in place anyways, except for the parades and all the pageantry with all the royal rituals. Does she still have any authority???

  12. Europe has lost its way and is suffering for being PC to the extreme.
    America is heading in the same Socialist/Marxist/Communist/Dimmi direction. Time shall come in short order, when we rise and take this country back before it is too late.

  13. I read this comment on another site, but it needs saying. The English are treated as subhumans in their own country, while muslims are treated with a kid glove. It is disgusting.

    “I am not condoning what this guy did but in the UK we have a perverted and two faced attitude towards racisim and race hate. Let me demonstrate; In British forces marches through the towns and cities after returning from a tour in Afganistan Muslim women have spat at out troops and called them ‘baby murderes’ shouted out ‘burn in hell’, all this whilst our brave troops march. No arrests. Outside Finchley mosque the British flag was burned by Muslims. No arrests. MP Mike Feer was meeting is constituents at Finchley mosque and was threatened by a Muslim who called him a ‘Jewish homosexual pig’. No arrests. What I am trying to say is that racisim and race hateworks both ways. Unless the authorities truly police rate hate properly, arrest and prosecute anyone and everyone using race hatered despite of whatever ethnic grouping then the UK will become a nation know for intollerance, but against it’s own native people. Watch the echo remove this straight away…””

  14. Obviously, the pictures must have shown the truth about islam – those muslims just hate the truth coming to light.

  15. Soooooo, “Freedom of expression is Western Terrorism”?! Well, how about this: F— YOU filthy stinking ASSLIFTERS!!….AND F— you too, you stupidaass dhimmi dimwit judge!!

  16. Are they serious? That judge should be banned from judgeship, and the defendant sue him for treason/treachery and the deliberate tearing down of the rights of every citizen to freely express his and her thoughts.

    Anyone can have any sticker on their car porn or bad language which offends most people. Yet, the Muslims are a special people.

    We are criminals now for offending them.

    problem is, judge, governor, mayor, lawyers, our mere existence if offensive to them, merely living and breathing is very offensive to a Muslim, if we will not convert.

    Next is, you guessed, mass exterminations by their aiders and abettors, the very authorities that are there, ostensibly for our protection.

    If only, Sirius.
    All of you above said the truth.

    Our ancestors would be dying all over again of strokes and heart attacks, were they allowed to see what has happened to us.

  17. feel for the tough fight The EDL boys got to put up with ! thank God and country for the First overhere , that is after we pry loose the choke hold the gruby muslims got on her.

  18. Welcome back, BNI! You’ve been missed!

    As for that judge, well, I have no words for him. Prayers for the man’s father, though. I hope they aren’t so heartless as to let the poor man suffer because they have to be pc.

  19. The ‘judge’ must be defrocked, disbarred and ridden out of town on a rail.

    You can not imagine the cursing a ‘judge’ would receive should he pull that shit on me, by God!!!

  20. ”There is no place in a civilized society for conduct of that sort and the only sentence I can justify for it is an immediate custodial sentence.” This dhimmi judge could not be more wrong, considering his choice of words. The whole idea of a “civil” society is that people can can speak their minds and display images that represent their opinions without fear of being persecuted and/or prosecuted.
    This is what separates the west from the shame and honor cultures of the middle east where hurting someones feelings is a criminal offense.A civil society should be able to deal with situations such as this without jailing anyone. Just where does this judge think he is, Saudi Arabia? This pandering to Islam and political correctness has got to stop before there are some real criminal offenses committed out of sheer frustration.

  21. Freedom Nations are shrinking as islamic filth spreads. Horrible that any so-called “judge” would make such a ruling.
    Sad to say America has problems with the left-wing judges here.

    • It’s getting worse, fitzhugh fanny. Florida’s government backed down on voting in a law that would keep sharia law out of there state. So now, the muzzies will have a field day in Florida.

  22. Any Muslim who plans to kill another person is not a Muslim.He does not even belong to any religion.He should be called a non believer. The Qur’an is very clear when it say that a person who saves another persons life, its like he has saved the whole nation and whoever kills any person its like he has killed the whole nation.That is the beauty of our religion-Islam.
    Issa Kirarira

    • Issa, take your taqiyya crap and shove it. Muslims kill because the quran tells them to.
      And that crap about killing one person is like killing a nation, you stole it from the Hebrews.

      Now you are banned.

      • Why don’t you go and read the quran yourself and try to find where it is to kill. Any person that kills is not a muslim. By the way, I am a proud muslim and you really do not know anything about islam.

      • I don’t think YOU know anything about islam either. Did you just convert today???? I believe Anon has answered your request quite well. So that tells me YOU have never read the k-ron. The only thing the k-ron is good for is to wipe your ass with if you can’t find any Angel Soft. As for your ‘pride’??? It really shows that you are a person of low self esteem. To worship a child molester. To partake in believing if someone is not a muslime then they need to be killed. Yep, you are one fine piece of work. How many 9 year old girls have you married?

      • Shalom,
        I, like many others who peruse this site, have read not only the koran, but the associated works as well; and it was indeed a painful slog through a morass of evil to do so.
        Quite contrary to your statement, Islamic texts, and the witness of the actions of the false prophet “Mad Man” Mo, make it clear that if one does NOT kill, one is not a muslim.
        One must not judge a system of belief by the actions of its apostates and slackers, but by the texts and teachings of that belief system and the actions of its, in the case of Islam, murderous adherants.
        If you truly take pride in being a muslim, but are not a murderer, then you are not a follower of either islam or its false prophet, and your pride is founded upon nothing.
        I hope that you, like many, converted to islam not because of what islam is, but because of the appeal of the lies of apologists for islam. I further pray, that when you learn the truth, you have the courage to abandon the islamic path to self destruction before you destroy not only your own life, but the lives of those around you.

      • Does the Quran really contain dozens of verses promoting violence?

        The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

        Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, most of the verses of violence in the Quran are open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.

        Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad’s own martial legacy and the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran have resulted in a trail of blood and tears across world history.

        Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.” The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). The use of the word “persecution” by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution – “idtihad” – and oppression – a variation of “z-l-m” – do not appear in the verse). The actual Arabic comes from “fitna” which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until “religion is for Allah” – ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.

        Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

        Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

        Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

        Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

        Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

        Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

        Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

        Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

        Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

        Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

        Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

        Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

        Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah” Some translations interpret “fitna” as “persecution”, but the traditional understanding of this word is not supported by the historical context (See notes for 2:293, also). The Meccans were simply refusing Muhammad access to their city during Haj. Other Muslims were allowed to travel there – just not as an armed group, since Muhammad had declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah”, meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the opposition. According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) Muhammad further explains that “Allah must have no rivals.”

        Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

        Quran (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

        Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

        Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.

        Quran (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

        Quran (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

        Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

        Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

        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 a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

        Quran (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” See also the verse that follows (9:42) – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them” This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).

        Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

        Quran (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”

        Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

        Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

        Quran (17:16) – “And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.” Note that the crime is moral transgression, and the punishment is “utter destruction.” (Before ordering the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden first issued Americans an invitation to Islam).

        Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story (which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source) tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son. (Note: This is one reason why honor killing is sanctioned by Sharia. Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al-Saliq) says that punishment for murder is not applicable when a parent or grandparent kills their offspring (o.1.1-2).)

        Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

        Quran (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness…” “Strive against” is Jihad – obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

        Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder” in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim generations.

        Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similitude. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,” Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle. The verse goes on to say the only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is in order to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test. “But if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

        Quran (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,”

        Quran (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?

        Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.

        Quran (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” Religion of Peace, indeed! This is followed by (61:9): “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.”

        Quran (61:10-12) – “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

        Quran (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

        From the Hadith:

        Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

        Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.

        Bukhari (52:220) – Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror’

        Abu Dawud (14:2526) – The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)

        Abu Dawud (14:2527) – The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious

        Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

        Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’. And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally.”

        Muslim (1:30) – “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”

        Muslim (1:149) – “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

        Muslim (20:4645) – “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”

        Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.’”

        Muslim (19:4321-4323) – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”

        Muslim (19:4294) – “When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him… He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war… When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them… If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.

        Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.

        Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

        Tabari 17:187 “‘By God, our religion (din) from which we have departed is better and more correct than that which these people follow. Their religion does not stop them from shedding blood, terrifying the roads, and seizing properties.’ And they returned to their former religion.” The words of a group of Christians who had converted to Islam, but realized their error after being shocked by the violence and looting committed in the name of Allah. The price of their decision to return to a religion of peace was that the men were beheaded and the woman and children enslaved by the caliph Ali.

        Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 327: – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

        Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 990: – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ is a modern creation, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.

        Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.

        Additional Notes:
        Other than the fact that Muslims haven’t killed every non-Muslim under their domain, there is very little else that they can point to as proof that theirs is a peaceful, tolerant religion. Where Islam is dominant (as in the Middle East and Pakistan) religious minorities suffer brutal persecution with little resistance. Where Islam is in the minority (as in Thailand, the Philippines and Europe) there is the threat of violence if Muslim demands are not met. Either situation seems to provide a justification for religious terrorism, which is persistent and endemic to Islamic fundamentalism.

        The reasons are obvious and begin with the Quran. Few verses of Islam’s most sacred text can be construed to fit the contemporary virtues of religious tolerance and universal brotherhood. Those that do are earlier “Meccan” verses which are obviously abrogated by later ones. This is why Muslim apologists speak of the “risks” of trying to interpret the Quran without their “assistance” – even while claiming that it is a perfect book.

        Far from being mere history or theological construct, the violent verses of the Quran have played a key role in very real massacre and genocide. This includes the brutal slaughter of tens of millions of Hindus for five centuries beginning around 1000 AD with Mahmud of Ghazni’s bloody conquest. Both he and the later Tamerlane (Islam’s Genghis Khan) slaughtered an untold number merely for defending their temples from destruction. Buddhism was very nearly wiped off the Indian subcontinent. Judaism and Christianity met the same fate (albeit more slowly) in areas conquered by Muslim armies, including the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe, including today’s Turkey. Zoroastrianism, the ancient religion of a proud Persian people is despised by Muslims and barely survives in modern Iran.

        So ingrained is violence in the religion that Islam has never really stopped being at war, either with other religions or with itself.

        Muhammad was a military leader, laying siege to towns, massacring the men, raping their women, enslaving their children, and taking what was once the property of others as his own. On several occasions he rejected offers of surrender from the besieged inhabitants and butchered captives. He inspired his followers to battle even when they did not feel it was right to fight, promising them slaves and booty if they did and threatening them with Hell if they did not. Muhammad allowed his men to rape traumatized women captured in battle, usually on the very day their husbands and family were slaughtered.

        It is important to emphasize that, for the most part, Muslim armies waged aggressive campaigns, and the religion’s most dramatic military conquests were made by the actual companions of Muhammad in the decades following his death. The early Islamic principle of warfare was that the civilian population of a town was to be destroyed (ie. men executed, women and children taken as slaves) if they defended themselves. Although modern Muslim apologists often claim that their people are only supposed to attack in self-defense, this is an oxymoron that is flatly contradicted by the accounts of Muslim historians and others that go back to the time of Muhammad.

        Consider the example of the Qurayza Jews, who were completely obliterated only five years after Muhammad arrived in Medina. Their leader opted to stay neutral when their town was besieged by a Meccan army that was sent to take revenge for Muhammad’s deadly caravan raids. The tribe killed no one from either side and even surrendered peacefully to Muhammad after the Meccans had been turned back. Yet the prophet of Islam had every male member of the Qurayza beheaded, and every woman and child enslaved, even raping one of the captives himself (what Muslim apologists might call “same day marriage”).

        One of Islam’s most revered modern scholars, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, openly sanctions offensive Jihad: “In the Jihad which you are seeking, you look for the enemy and invade him. This type of Jihad takes place only when the Islamic state is invading other [countries] in order to spread the word of Islam and to remove obstacles standing in its way.” Elsewhere, he notes: “Islam has the right to take the initiative…this is God’s religion and it is for the whole world. It has the right to destroy all obstacles in the form of institutions and traditions … it attacks institutions and traditions to release human beings from their poisonous influences, which distort human nature and curtail human freedom. Those who say that Islamic Jihad was merely for the defense of the ‘homeland of Islam’ diminish the greatness of the Islamic way of life.”

        Muhammad’s failure to leave a clear line of succession resulted in perpetual internal war following his death. Those who knew him best first fought to keep remote tribes from leaving Islam and reverting to their preferred religion (the Ridda or ‘Apostasy wars’). Then, within the closer community, early Meccan converts battled later ones. Hostility developed between those immigrants who had traveled with Muhammad to Mecca and the Ansar at Medina who had helped them settle in. Finally there was a violent struggle within Muhammad’s own family between his favorite wife and favorite daughter – a jagged schism that has left Shias and Sunnis at each others’ throats to this day.

        The strangest and most untrue thing that can be said about Islam is that it is a Religion of Peace. If every standard by which the West is judged and condemned (slavery, imperialism, intolerance, misogyny, sexual repression, warfare…) were applied equally to Islam, the verdict would be devastating. Islam never gives up what it conquers, be it religion, culture, language or life. Neither does it make apologies or any real effort at moral progress. It is the least open to dialogue and the most self-absorbed. It is convinced of its own perfection, yet brutally shuns self-examination and represses criticism.

        This is what makes the Quran’s verses of violence so dangerous. They are given the weight of divine command. While Muslim terrorists take them as literally as anything else in their holy book, and understand that Islam is incomplete without Jihad, moderates offer little to contradict them – outside of opinion. Indeed, what do they have? Speaking of peace and love may win over the ignorant, but when every twelfth verse of Islam’s holiest book either speaks to Allah’s hatred for non-Muslims or calls for their death, forced conversion, or subjugation, it’s little wonder that sympathy for terrorism runs as deeply as it does in the broader community – even if most Muslims personally prefer not to interpret their religion in this way.

        Although scholars like Ibn Khaldun, one of Islam’s most respected philosophers, understood that “the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force”, many other Muslims are either unaware or willfully ignorant of the Quran’s near absence of verses that preach universal non-violence. Their understanding of Islam comes from what they are taught by others. In the West, it is typical for believers to think that their religion must be like Christianity – preaching the New Testament virtues of peace, love, and tolerance – because Muslims are taught that Islam is supposed to be superior in every way. They are somewhat surprised and embarrassed to learn that the evidence of the Quran and the bloody history of Islam are very much in contradiction to this.

        Others simply accept the violence. In 1991, a Palestinian couple in America was convicted of stabbing their daughter to death for being too Westernized. A family friend came to their defense, excoriating the jury for not understanding the “culture”, claiming that the father was merely following “the religion” and saying that the couple had to “discipline their daughter or lose respect.” (source). In 2011, unrepentant Palestinian terrorists, responsible for the brutal murders of civilians, women and children explicitly in the name of Allah were treated to a luxurious “holy pilgrimage” to Mecca by the Saudi king – without a single Muslim voice raised in protest.

        For their part, Western liberals would do well not to sacrifice critical thinking to the god of political correctness, or look for reasons to bring other religion down to the level of Islam merely to avoid the existential truth that this it is both different and dangerous.

        There are just too many Muslims who take the Quran literally… and too many others who couldn’t care less about the violence done in the name of Islam.

      • Anon, I am a Muslim that believes in what is in the Quran. The hadith came after Prophet Muhammad in order to help understand the Quran but they are not the books that were sent down by Allah for Muslims to follow. There are many books of hadiths with many different contradictions on the religion. What is in the Quran is what Prophet Muhammad preached and that is what I follow. The Quran talks about punishment to the wrongdoers only by Allah on the Day of Judgment. Go to this website: http://quran.com/ and read the whole story on the verses you quoted. Feel free to read other parts of the Quran and let me know what you think.

  23. The truth has got one true face.However much you slander any religion,many citizens of the world are civilized enough to find out the truth.
    Let us use our professionalism to preach unity in diversity instead of waging people against each other

      • Well said BNI, there is no diversity in islam, and never will be, and if anyone thinks otherwise they are sadly delusional, and suffering from a severe attack of the politically correct syndrome, which can have lethal side effects, so stop extracting the urine, and wake up to reality. Welcome back BNI, missed you guys missed you lots…………….

  24. Maybe he should have posted a picture of Mo and his 6 year old bride Aishea (sp). Why are some of the leaders of this world so in love with Muslims? As I see it Sarkozy is one that has started to listen to the citizens, unlike Obower the Apologist.

  25. I fear this will happen here if the UN and OIC have there way. I would love to send an email to this judge and chew him out for his lack of understanding free speech.

  26. this is outrageous. jailed for what?only stated his opinion. Great artwork by the way, Werewolf not bloody enough though

  27. Judge Michael Heath told Conway: “To describe the material you put in your window as grossly offensive is an understatement. ”There is no place in a civilised society for conduct of that sort and the only sentence I can justify for it is an immediate custodial sentence.”.

    Are you kidding me? If the judge sets the standard where does that leave those savage SOB muslims? On another plante hopefully.
    When are Europeans going to put a stop to this PC legislation & all out surrender of their rights & freedoms by the very politicans that lead them?

    In America do we wait until they have a world wide califate & are fighting for our very survival?

  28. It is time for a new civil-war! War against slavery! Abolish sharia-slavery at once! The Dhimmi-Jugdes are betrayers and corrupted filth!

    • Sirius,I agree with you,it will have come to that eventually as they -the muslims are taking over -as they said they would -aided by those who for reasons of their own kowtow and ingraite thenselves with this cruel hatefilled ideology,there seems to be two sets of laws -one for them and- one for us ,and I don’t mean Sharia,as you know they -control by fear and threats,we must not give in to them ,they first take away freedom to speak against Islam ,then make demands-creeping Sharia-all immigration must stop-now,as they are colonising-not assimilating,those who choose not to listen and become aware of what is taking place will-one day regret their naivety ignorance and -apathy.
