As an apostate, Amil Imani’s life is always in danger, yet he has dedicated himself to raising the clarion call about the imminent and present danger of expansionistic theocratic Islam. Having witnessed first-hand the horrors and indignity that Islamofascism visits on people it subjugates, he has taken it upon himself to do his part in defeating this ideology of oppression, hate, and violence.
I am very proud to call Amil a good friend.

When and why did you get involved in the anti-Islamic movement?
My confrontation with Islam actually began early in life when I encountered so many Islamic beliefs and practices. Born in a Muslim family and enveloped by an Islamic society, I needed to find my own identity and path in life. A great many things about Islam clashed with beliefs that I cherished. Namely, those of the longstanding, life loving, and egalitarianism of my ancient pre-Islamic people.
Islamophobia is an irrational fear or prejudice towards Islam and Muslims. Are you an irrational Islamophobe?
All phobias are, by definition, irrational fears. I’m not an Islamophobe, because my “fear” of Islam is completely rational. Avoiding a poisonous snake is a rational fear. Not a phobia. The emotion of fear, when utilized rationally, is of immense value. The key point is that the person, as well as the society, must base their assessment on facts. My assessment of Islam, conclusively supported by indisputable facts, is that it is a dangerous destructive and death-bearing belief system of a long ago savage people that has inflicted and continues to inflict misery and death to people.
Did you receive any threats from Muslims or others because of your involvement in the anti-Islamic movement or because of your apostasy?
Yes. But I ignore them. I will speak the truth about Islam. In no way am I falsely defaming Islam. Islam is own best defamer. Speaking the truth usually entails risks. I’m well aware of that.
Sharia law stipulates that any Muslim who turns his back on Islam should be given a chance to revert to the religion. For an un-repenting male apostate, death is the punishment and life imprisonment for a female apostate. “Kill whoever changes his religion.” __Sahih al-Bukhari 9:84:57
What aspects of Islam do you find most problematic and disturbing?
To answer this question properly, volumes can be written. Just a few keywords should cue you for now. Intolerance, fatalism, institutionalized slavery, injustice, jihadism, oppression of women and non-Muslims, celebration of death, lack of respect for individualism, rejection of freedom and democracy, belief in the theocracy of Allah as ministered by the self-serving clergy who are not accountable to the people, stifling of questioning and inquiry, disallowing all legitimate forms of freedom, and on and on.
Do you think Israel is a good ally in the struggle against Islamization?
Yes, absolutely. Now, Israel is a sovereign state but hardly safe. She is surrounded by nations and peoples who are bent on her destruction. It is tragic that her neighbors and she has not been able to find an equitable way of living side-by-side with mutual respect and in peace. I earnestly hope that ways can be found for a peaceful resolution to this destructive impasse.
Who is a moderate Muslim?
It is wishful thinking on the part of the non-Muslims to believe that one can be a Muslim moderate, given that Islam is radical to its very core. To be a moderate Muslim demands that the person explicitly renounce much of the violent, exclusionary, and radical teachings of the Quran. A moderate Muslim is someone who is Muslim in name only.
A moderate Muslim is not a true Muslim. If in any way and to any extent a person supports Islam or carries out its stone-age precepts, then he/she is Muslim. There is no such as thing as moderate Muslims. There are, however, some moderate people who consider themselves Muslims. These people are not sure who they are. They are in a limbo and suffer from an identity crisis.
How do you see the future with current immigration policies? And what needs to be changed?
I have always believed that being a Muslim and being American are incompatible. A Muslim is an Ummahist. His loyalty, first and above all, to the Islamic world rule and not to his country. By allowing Muslims to immigrate to the West, we are literary inviting the biggest enemy of mankind into our homes. Because, Muslims do not assimilate, they come here to make Islam the law of the land.
What do you see as the biggest challenge when it comes to informing people about the dangers of Islamization?
The biggest danger is being seen as racist. Also, lawsuits and other forms of intimidations by rich powerful Muslim organizations impede an individual to come forward and tell the truth. Personal threats of harm and even death fall into this category.
What do you say to people calling you a racist or a Nazi because you oppose Islamization?
They are entitled to their views. I want them to enjoy freedom of expression as long as allow me and others to present the non-sanitized true version of Islam. Islam isn’t a race, so critics of Islam cannot be racists.
Do you think mainstream media is pro-Islam biased?
Certainly. And part of the bias is driven by financial gains from advertising and the real fear of losing advertising when an advertiser, under pressure from an Islamic organization threatens to boycott their products.
Muslims want to use Sharia (Islamic law). In what way does it clash with our Western civilization and our laws?
This is another book in itself. Read my past writings on my web site. Muslims, under the banner of religion, are infringing blatantly on the rights of others, not only in Islamic countries, but also in much of the non-Muslim world. By their acts of dogmatic savagery, Muslims are finally awakening non-Muslim democracies to the imminent threat of Islamofascism keen on destroying their free secular societies.
Living in America, what can you tell us about the ongoing Islamization of the country?
Islamization is just as dangerous as Hitlerism and worse than communism. As more and more Muslims arrive in non-Islamic lands, as they reproduce with great fecundity, as they convert the disenchanted and minorities, and as the petrodollar-flush Muslims and Muslim treasuries supply generous funds, Muslims gather more power to undermine democratic rule. A consortium composed of pandering politicians, blinded with short-term self-interest and egoism; attention and fund-seeking self-proclaimed prima donna professors; and, bastions of useful idiot liberals, universities, is the witting or unwitting promoter of Ummah-ism.
Is Islam a religion of peace?
No, it has never been a religion of peace. What we need to do is demand that politicians, Islamic apologists, and paid-for media do not abuse freedom by lying about Islam. When these people portray Islam as a religion of peace, they are lying through their teeth. Just take a quick look at Islam’s history as well as what is happening today in the Islamic lands. Islam is not a religion of peace and it has never been. Islam is violent, oppressive, racist, and irrational at its very core. It is treachery for people to present it as otherwise, either out of ignorance or because of their own personal reasons.
