Faith is a virtue, but blind faith can sometimes trap people in an imaginary world divorced from reality. Muslims not only believe that their religion is “perfect,” but they also believe that all events in history were not only “Islamic,” but they were the perfect will of Allah.
Hardly a week goes by without a newspaper article or a public service announcement that depicts Muslims as victims of bigotry or Islamophobia. FBI statistics actually show that Jews are ten times more likely to be victims of religious hatred than Muslims.
After eight years with an Administration that refused to put “Islam” and “terrorism” in the same sentence, Americans have elected a President who has no qualms about calling a spade a spade – even if it ruffles a few feathers.
The pace of Islamic intolerance and terrorism has increased in recent years, much to the alarm of peaceful, nominal Muslims who want nothing more than to enjoy the benefits of secular, democratic societies.
Since the Quran insists that Muslims are “the noblest nation that has ever been raised up for mankind” (per Surah 3:110), it would be interesting to compare the 2016 Olympic performance of the fifty-six member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) with the rest of the world’s Olympic competitors.
Muslims are becoming more and more annoyed when non-Muslims criticize their sacred book, the Quran, or their moral code, called Sharia Law.
The most elaborately decorated Quran of the 21st Century was published last November after nine years in preparation.
During his lifetime, Muhammad reacted differently at different times to Jews and Christians depending on the reception they accorded him and also on his dealings with Christian states.
Be aware! When Muslims tell you that Muhammad espoused universal equality, equal rights for women, and a “perfected” religion, they may be quoting from a fake “Final Sermon” of Muhammad.
When asked where in the Quran does it say that, Muslims cannot cite a verse. It just isn’t there – at least in those words.
