Obama is wrong: Ten Koranic verses that prove ISIS is Islam

Extremist Muslim with Koran

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.

    Of course Isis is part of Islam, as much as the Inquisition was part of Christianity. Only cowards are afraid to offend Islam.

    Re –
    claims by Obama and Cameron that ISIS is not really Islamic though it
    claims it is

    Even if ISIS is behaving contrary to the Muslim religion, the fact
    remains that the God speaking in the Old Testament and the Koran and
    Muslim tradition authorises violence. That leads to Muslim sects
    thinking, “Okay let us endorse this violence. If we are wrong it is not
    that big of a deal for violence is endorsed by God in the scriptures.”
    And it does not matter if ISIS is authentically Muslim or not. What
    matters is that it claims to be a religion and we should take it
    at its word. Is the religious attitude the problem? Is religion the
    problem? Is ISIS merely a symptom of what religion does to people’s

    And the Koran God does undeniably endorse barbaric terrorism:

    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

    must not forget that believers in God hold that God has the right to
    murder and take life. How can they expect to get through to somebody
    who thinks he is a prophet and who says God authorised him to take life?
    We must remember too, that it is not true that Christianity and Islam
    (to mention just two faiths) are opposed to killing the innocent.
    They know that war always results in much loss of innocent life but they
    do not consider that enough to forbid it. Also, even if those
    faiths say they condemn the killing of the innocent, they do not
    consider adulterers or practicing homosexuals or apostates as innocents.
    The New Testament God says that he has sentenced us all to death for
    sin. Their defence of the innocent is empty and superficial.

    What gives Obama and Cameron the right to state what Islam teaches and
    what is real Islam and what isn’t as
    Muslim scholars struggle with deciding what teachings follow from the
    scriptures/hadith and what one’s are inconsistent with it? Their
    assertions are just whitewashing and they want to pretend to be
    ambassadors of religious tolerance. And they want intolerance
    towards those who may know that their Islamic faith is pro-violence.
    They want to set the stage for that to happen with their manipulative

    The notion that all religion is really good so that anything
    bad is not religion is ridiculous. It makes one religion as good
    as or as true as another. If a religion is not true, then it is
    opposed to what people should and need to believe. It is opposed –
    perhaps unintentionally – to what God wants people to believe. To
    suggest that all religions are equally good insults the victims of bad
    religion and enables bad religion to thrive. The notion that we
    all have our crutches and religion is a crutch enables the problem of
    religion too. We do not need a religious crutch and that is that –
    even if we are fond of crutches. If religious faith is a crutch
    that does not excuse it. The only right reason to belong to a
    religion is thinking it is true – and religion itself teaches that. The
    crutch is an abuse of religion.
