CHARLOTTE, NC, September 11, 2014 — President Barack Obama took to the airwaves Wednesday to announce his non-strategy strategy for dealing with ISIS.
ISIS is that “JV” group of terrorists that Obama and other apologists claim is “not Islam.”
After six years of lies and distortions from the “Islamic-Lite” White House, nothing could be further from the truth. Muslims tell non-Muslims to read the Koran to find out just how un-Islamic ISIS really is.
Most Muslims know that non-believers will not actually read the Koran, but just to show how wrong they are, following are ten direct quotes from the book which is said by all Muslims to be the “revealed word of Allah through the Prophet Muhammad.”
Pre-verse notes: Islam is ambiguous. So is the Koran. One reason analysts have difficulties comprehending the president is because he, too, is ambiguous. It is part of his Islamic Indonesian upbringing. Therefore, black is white, left is right, up is down and so on.
The Koran is not chronological. Chapters written in Medina, during Muhammad’s time as a warrior, are mingled with the prophet’s time in Mecca when he was peaceful.
Islamic clerics will tell you that the Koran cannot be translated, it can only be interpreted. That is also Islamic mumbo-jumbo which means that only imams can make the words say what they true mean. In other words, they can say anything the clerics want them to say.
With those clarifications in mind, here are ten verses taken from the N.J. Daewood translation of the Koran which is said to be one of the most accurate translations. Verses are listed in numerical order except for the last which is the most important of the ten.
Judge for yourself how “un-Islamic” ISIS really is.
Koran 3:32 “The day will surely come when each soul will be confronted with whatever good it did. As for its evil deeds, it will wish they were a long way off. God admonishes you to fear Him. God is compassionate toward His servants.” ISIS believes they are God’s servants.
Koran 4:24 This verse requires explanation before reading. In 630, toward the end of Muhammad’s life, the Muslims won a major defensive victory in the Battle of Autas. Following the battle, Muhammad’s warriors wanted to know whether it was justified to have sex with their captive women since the women were married. Conveniently Muhammad had one of his “revelations” and said it was acceptable and justified because the women were victims of war.
“Surely God is forgiving and merciful. Also married women, except those you own as slaves. Such is the decree of God.”
Koran 5:33 “Those that make war against God and his Apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides or be banished from the land.”
Koran 9:5 This is one of the most frequently quoted verses in the Koran. “When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them. Besiege them, and lie in ambush for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.”
Koran 9:8 The reference here is to what we term today as “moderate Muslims.” “How can you trust them? If they prevail against you, they will respect neither agreements nor ties of kindred. They flatter you with their tongues, but their hearts reject you. Most of them are evil-doers.”
Koran 9:29 “Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures were given as believe in neither God nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His apostle have forbidden, and do not embrace the true Faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.”
Koran 9:73 We often hear the argument that Muslims also kill Muslims. This verse justifies such killing. “Prophet make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate.” Muslims can also be “unbelievers” if their own beliefs do not conform with those of the Muslims who are in power.
Koran 47:35 “Therefore do not falter or sue for peace when you have gained the upper hand. God is on your side and will not grudge you the recompense of your labors. The life of this world is but a sport and a diversion.”
Koran 47:29 “Muhammad is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. You see them worshipping on their knees, seeking the grace of God and His good will. Their marks are on their faces, the traces of their prostrations.”
The final verse is taken out of order because it is a key element to understanding the so-called “peace verses” of the Koran. It has to do with abrogation which simply means that if the prophet changes his mind and comes up with a solution to a problem that is better than the original, then the new solution takes precedence. This occurs throughout the Koran and more often than not justifies the war passages over the peaceful ones.
Koran 2:106 “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, we will replace it by a better one or one similar.”
Call it the “rule of convenience.” How many times have we seen Barack Obama incorporate the same strategy during his presidency?
These are the actual words of the Koran. They speak for themselves. To say that ISIS is not Islam is denial of the first order.
The bigger the lie, the better President Obama likes it. Oh, and by the way, you can keep your own doctor, too.
