MUSLIM NATIONS (SLAUGHTERED BY NUKES FOR COMING AGAINST ISRAEL)
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face against Gog,(RULER) the land of Magog,(RUSSIA)
the chief prince of Meshech(MOSCOW)and Tubal,(TOBOLSK) and prophesy
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
thee, O Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) the chief prince of Meshech(MOSCOW) and
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy
jaws,(GOD FORCES THE RUSSIA-MUSLIMS TO MARCH) and I will bring thee
forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with
all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields,
all of them handling swords:
5 Persia,(IRAN,IRAQ) Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Gomer,(GERMANY) and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (TURKEY) of
the north quarters, and all his bands:(SUDAN,AFRICA) and many people

thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto

thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and
is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which
have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and
they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come
like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and
all thy bands, and many people with thee.(RUSSIA-EGYPT AND MUSLIMS)
Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same
time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil

villages;(ISRAEL) I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely,

hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the
people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle
and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) and
say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the
chief prince of Meshech (MOSCOW) and Tubal: (TUBOLSK)
2 And I will
turn thee back,(RUSSIA-ARAB MUSLIM ISRAEL HATERS) and leave but the
sixth part of thee,(5/6TH OR 300 MILLION DEAD RUSSIAN/ARAB/MUSLIMS I
BELIEVE) and will cause thee to come up from the north parts,(RUSSIA)
and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands,(
ARABS) and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the
ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be

dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and
I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen
shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog
(RUSSIA/ARAB/MUSLIMS) a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of
the passengers (EAST OF THE DEAD SEA IN JORDAN VALLEY) on the east of
the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall
they bury Gog (RUSSIAN) and all his multitude:(ARAB/MUSLIM HORDE) and
they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.(BURIEL SITE OF THE 300

Yea, all the people of the land (OF ISRAEL) shall bury them; and it
shall be to them a renown the day that I (GOD-JESUS) shall be glorified,
saith the Lord GOD.

employment,(NUCLEAR BOMB EXPERTS) passing through the land to bury with
the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse
it: after the end of seven months shall they search.

shall he set up a sign by it,(WON'T TOUCH IT) till the buriers have
buried it (PROPERLY) in the valley of Hamongog.(RUSSIA/ARAB/MUSLIMS NEW

And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every
feathered fowl,(500 MILLION MIGRATING BIRDS THREW ISRAEL EVERY

come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do
sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel,
that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.(OF THE RUSSIAN/ARAB/MUSLIM

drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for
you.(RUSSIAN/ARAB/MUSLIM ISRAEL HATERS)

The Clash of Civilizations?
THE NEXT PATTERN OF CONFLICT
World politics is entering a new phase, and intellectuals have not
hesitated to proliferate visions of what it will be-the end of history,
the return of traditional rivalries between nation states, and the
decline of the nation state from the conflicting pulls of tribalism and
globalism, among others. Each of these visions catches aspects of the
emerging reality. Yet they all miss a crucial, indeed a central, aspect
of what global politics is likely to be in the coming years.It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this
new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The
great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict
will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in
world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur
between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of
civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between
civilizations will be the battle lines of the future.Conflict between civilizations will be the latest phase in the
evolution of conflict in the modern world. For a century and a half
after the emergence of the modern international system with the Peace of
Westphalia, the conflicts of the Western world were largely among
princes-emperors, absolute monarchs and constitutional monarchs
attempting to expand their bureaucracies, their armies, their
mercantilist economic strength and, most important, the territory they
ruled. In the process they created nation states, and beginning with the
French Revolution the principal lines of conflict were between nations
rather than princes. In 1793, as R. R. Palmer put it, "The wars of kings
were over; the wars of peoples had begun." This nineteenth-century
pattern lasted until the end of World War I. Then, as a result of the
Russian Revolution and the reaction against it, the conflict of nations
yielded to the conflict of ideologies, first among communism,
fascism-Nazism and liberal democracy, and then between communism and
liberal democracy. During the Cold War, this latter conflict became
embodied in the struggle between the two superpowers, neither of which
was a nation state in the classical European sense and each of which
defined its identity in terms of its ideology...
The U.S. Should Back the Army
If the Muslim Brotherhood wins, say goodbye to the peace treaty with Israel and stability in Sinai.
WALL STREET JOURNAL - JOHN BOLTON
has not yet succumbed to all-out civil war, as Syria has, but it's
getting close. So are Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Somalia. Tensions
are more than simmering in Nigeria, Mali, Algeria and Sudan, and there
is no guarantee that Tunisia, Jordan, Bahrain and Pakistan will remain
This is a pattern. Discrete crises in collapsing Middle Eastern and
African countries are giving way to broader regional chaos, which is now
a geostrategic factor in its own right.
After the Cold War, America briefly provided a
modicum of protection and stability to this broad swath of territory.
That time has passed. Under President Barack Obama
the U.S. withdrew militarily from Iraq and is doing so now in
Afghanistan. It abandoned long-standing allies under pressure, like
Egypt's Hosni Mubarak
, and Arab monarchies wonder when their turn will come.Even when the U.S. intervened in March 2011 to oust Libya's Moammar
Gadhafi, it relinquished the field so entirely that four Americans were
assassinated with impunity only 18 months later. Mr. Obama's Syria
policy fundamentally misreads Russia's objectives and refuses to
confront the real Syrian problem: Iran. And as we saw three weeks ago,
when the U.S. shut down almost two dozen embassies and consulates, civis americanus sum
idea that Americans abroad can expect their government to protect
them—is losing its force.This is the depressing context that the White
House faces as it
decides the next steps to take on Egypt. The U.S. cannot pretend that
the Egyptian conflict is a dispute capable of being resolved through
political compromise within a framework of representative government.
Such conditions do not exist.Security forces and a Muslim Brotherhood
supporter outside Cairo's al-Fatah mosque, Aug. 17.The Muslim
Brotherhood is not a normal
political party as Westerners understand that term. It is an armed
ideology—a militia that fires on its opponents and burns down churches.
Justice Robert Jackson once said of American communists that they
"assert as against our Government all of the constitutional rights and
immunities of individuals, and at the same time exercise over their
followers much of the authority which they deny to the Government." The
same can be said of the Brotherhood. It is, as Jackson also said of the
Communists, "a state within a state."We need not dwell on the
Brotherhood's Islamist ideology to grasp its
authoritarian nature. It desires confrontation with Egypt's military
because it rejects the legitimacy of any government it does not control.
The Brotherhood, therefore, shares full blame for the continuing
carnage. Should it ever regain power, whether through free elections or
otherwise, it will never let go, as Mohammed Morsi was busy
demonstrating in his year as president.Opposing the Brotherhood are
Egypt's military and a collection of
citizens who refuse to live under an authoritarian theocracy: Coptic
Christians, pro-democracy intellectuals, a middle class that desires a
functioning economy, and women who do not yearn for the burqa. Without
the military's support, however, this group would be hopelessly
outmatched.Today's struggle is ultimately between the Brotherhood and
the army. Like it or not, it is time for the U.S. to choose
sides.Hand-wringing about abstract political theories or calling on all
sides to exercise restraint is divorced from Egypt's reality. Such
rhetoric doesn't advance U.S. interests, and earns America the contempt
of Egyptians across the board. In recent days, Mr. Obama has put his
thumb on the scale for the Brotherhood—by calling off next month's joint
military exercise and, according to the office of Sen. Patrick Leahy
(D., Vt.), by secretly halting aid. (The Obama administration denies
these reports, saying it is reviewing aid programs on a "case by case"
This is the wrong move. The U.S. should support the military because
even with its obvious flaws, it is more likely to support the palpable
U.S. interests at stake. Three are basic.First, it is in the U.S.
interest to have an Egyptian government
committed to upholding the Camp David Accords with Israel, the
foundation of U.S. Middle East policy since 1979. The Muslim Brotherhood
assassinated Anwar Sadat in 1981 for negotiating Camp David, and it has
never accepted it. Mr. Morsi foreshadowed abrogating or gutting Camp
David as soon as practicable during his presidential campaign. With Iran
nearing its long-sought nuclear capability, America and Israel would be
worse off than before 1979. The U.S. is doing little to stop Iran, but
we can still save Camp David. Backing Egypt's military is the best
bet.Second, and closely related: If the Sinai Peninsula slips from
Cairo's control, terrorists like Hamas (a Brotherhood subsidiary) and al
Qaeda will use the area as a haven and a highway for smuggling arms to
Gaza for use against Israel and to both sides in the Syrian civil war.
Egypt's army is far more likely to prevent this nightmare scenario than
Third, for purely economic reasons, the Suez Canal must remain open.
Annually, some 14% of global shipping and 30% of oil supplies pass
through the canal. The Brotherhood is far more susceptible to suicidal
impulses if it means harming the West. Egypt's military does not prize
martyrdom.For these reasons and more, the U.S. should continue providing
military assistance, which hopefully still provides some measure of
continuing leverage. Three decades of affording Egypt's office corps
with military training has created powerful connections that cutting off
aid would irreparably damage. America's $1.3 billion in annual military
aid is minimal compared to what the Saudis could provide in the U.S.'s
absence, but its political symbolism remains important. Moreover, the
U.S. should worry about an opportunistic Vladimir Putin
stepping in to fill its shoes, eager to reverse Moscow's historic setback when Sadat expelled the Soviets from Egypt.
There are no certainties here, only odds. But this is a real decision
point for the Obama administration, not a time for half-measures.Mr. Bolton, a senior fellow at the American
Enterprise Institute, is the author of "Surrender Is Not an Option:
Defending America at the United Nations and Abroad" (Simon &
Schuster, 2007).A version of this article appeared August 21,
2013, on page A11 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with
the headline: The U.S. Should Back the Army.
Huntington’s Clash Revisited
By DAVID BROOKS - Published: March 3, 2011 - THE NEW YORK TIMES
Samuel Huntington was one of America’s greatest political scientists. In
1993, he published a sensational essay in Foreign Affairs called “The
Clash of Civilizations?” The essay, which became a book, argued that the
post-cold war would be marked by civilizational conflict.Human beings,
Huntington wrote, are divided along cultural lines —
Western, Islamic, Hindu and so on. There is no universal civilization.
Instead, there are these cultural blocks, each within its own distinct
set of values.The Islamic civilization, he wrote, is the most
troublesome. People in
the Arab world do not share the general suppositions of the Western
world. Their primary attachment is to their religion, not to their
nation-state. Their culture is inhospitable to certain liberal ideals,
like pluralism, individualism and democracy.Huntington correctly foresaw
that the Arab strongman regimes were
fragile and were threatened by the masses of unemployed young men. He
thought these regimes could fall, but he did not believe that the
nations would modernize in a Western direction. Amid the tumult of
regime change, the rebels would selectively borrow tools from the West,
but their borrowing would be refracted through their own beliefs. They
would follow their own trajectory and not become more Western.The Muslim
world has bloody borders, he continued. There are wars and
tensions where the Muslim world comes into conflict with other
civilizations. Even if decrepit regimes fell, he suggested, there would
still be a fundamental clash of civilizations between Islam and the
West. The Western nations would do well to keep their distance from
Muslim affairs. The more the two civilizations intermingle, the worse
the tensions will be.Huntington’s thesis set off a furious debate. But
with the historic
changes sweeping through the Arab world, it’s illuminating to go back
and read his argument today.In retrospect, I’d say that Huntington
committed the Fundamental
Attribution Error. That is, he ascribed to traits qualities that are
actually determined by context.He argued that people in Arab lands are
intrinsically not nationalistic.
He argued that they do not hunger for pluralism and democracy in the
way these things are understood in the West. But it now appears as
though they were simply living in circumstances that did not allow that
patriotism or those spiritual hungers to come to the surface.It now
appears that people in these nations, like people in all nations,
have multiple authentic selves. In some circumstances, one set of
identities manifests itself, but when those circumstances change, other
equally authentic identities and desires get activated.For most of the
past few decades, people in Arab nations were living
under regimes that rule by fear. In these circumstances, most people
shared the conspiracy mongering and the political passivity that these
regimes encouraged. But when the fear lessened, and the opportunity for
change arose, different aspirations were energized. Over the past weeks,
we’ve seen Arab people ferociously attached to their national
identities. We’ve seen them willing to risk their lives for pluralism,
openness and democracy.I’d say Huntington was also wrong in the way he
defined culture.In some ways, each of us is like every person on earth;
in some ways,
each of us is like the members of our culture and group; and, in some
ways, each of us is unique. Huntington minimized the power of universal
political values and exaggerated the influence of distinct cultural
values. It’s easy to see why he did this. He was arguing against global
elites who sometimes refuse to acknowledge the power of culture at
all.But it seems clear that many people in Arab nations do share a
hunger for liberty. They feel the presence of universal human rights
and feel insulted when they are not accorded them.Culture is important,
but underneath cultural differences there are
these universal aspirations for dignity, for political systems that
listen to, respond to and respect the will of the people.Finally, I’d
say Huntington misunderstood the nature of historical
change. In his book, he describes transformations that move along
linear, projectable trajectories. But that’s not how things work in
times of tumult. Instead, one person moves a step. Then the next person
moves a step. Pretty soon, millions are caught up in a contagion,
activating passions they had but dimly perceived just weeks before. They
get swept up in momentums that have no central authority and that,
nonetheless, exercise a sweeping influence on those caught up in their
tides.I write all this not to denigrate the great Huntington. He may
proved right. The Arab world may modernize on its own separate path. But
his mistakes illuminate useful truths: that all people share certain
aspirations and that history is wide open. The tumult of events can
transform the traits and qualities that seemed, even to great experts,
etched in stone.A version of this op-ed appeared in print on March 4, 2011, on page A27 of the New York edition.
I Q AL RASSOOLI
ISLAMIC HONOR KILLINGS
A Shocking Interview with I. Q. Rassooli, Islam Expert
By Clare Lopez
Family Security Matters
The Iraqi-born native Arabic-speaker who goes by the name “I. Q. Rassooli” has lived in Europe since his university days studying engineering in England. His mind is an inquiring and a questioning one, characteristics not much appreciated among the conformist Muslim community of his origins. And so he stayed in the West and, for the next 23 years, undertook “as thorough a study of Islam as humanly possible,” as he says.His research and analysis about Muhammad, the Qur’an, Hadiths, Shariah, Arab and Islamic history, and a comparative, contrasting study of those with the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, Zoroastrian (Persian) beliefs, pagan Arab religions and more culminated in a thesis that no publisher would print. Instead, al-Rassooli created a website, www.inthenameofallah.org that now contains over 780 chapters. He also put up over 280 audio/video chapters on YouTube that collectively received over 1.59 million visitors and 3,976 subscribers in the two years before YouTube removed took them down. Luckily, al-Rassooli had them all backed up on his blog site atwww.the-koran.blogspot.comand he then put them back up on YouTube under another name. His website is at www.alrassooli.com
Al-Rassooli also founded a movement called the Ummat al Kuffar (Nation of Infidels) that he hopes will develop and grow, given that some 80% of all humanity are not Muslims but rather the object of Islamic supremacist conquest intentions. He says his mission is the exposure of the facts and reality about Islam, based on the primary Arabic language sources themselves.Family Security Matters Contributing Writer Clare Lopez recently was granted the opportunity to interview I.Q. al-Rassooli about Islam. Here are his replies to her questions.
1. Is there such a thing as “moderate Islam” ?
It is very difficult for decent, well-meaning Americans and Europeans – who truly believe the propaganda of Muslims that Islam is only a religion and as such must have redeeming characteristics – to be told by myself and others who know Islam from the inside that the truth is quite different.Unfortunately, most Americans – as well as most of humanity – have been misled because Muhammadan Islam is not merely a religion but a cult belief system, the cult of Muhammad.Believing Muslims must follow Sharia. It is obligatory for all Muslims, everywhere, for all time. Sharia – based upon Muhammad’s Quran and Sunna (Muhammad’s acts, deeds, thoughts, behavior, etc. as recorded in the hadiths and Sira) – explicitly commands deceit, hatred, misogyny, racism, and warmongering against non-Muslims. There is no other “religion” that does this and this is why I say that Islam cannot be considered merely a “religion” like any other – and it most certainly cannot be called “moderate”.
For this is the command from Allah to all Muslims, as recorded in the Qur’an:
Al Tauba 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 apostle [Muhammad] nor acknowledge the religion of truth [ISLAM] (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians & Jews] until they pay the Jizya [onerous Tax for not being a Muslim] with willing submission and feel themselves humiliated”
Muhammad 47:4“Therefore when ye meet the Unbelievers smite at their necks; at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom”
2. How about “moderate Muslims” ?
There is no such thing as a ‘moderate Muslim’. Every Muslim – especially the males – is fundamentally a JIHADI. That is, one who will fight Unbelievers (currently 80% of humanity including ALL Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Atheists, Agnostics, etc.) – any and all those who do not follow Muhammad.
Sharia gives the Unbelievers the following three choices:
(A) Convert to Islam (whether we like it or not)
(B) Be subject to Islam as Dhimmis in humiliation and degradation forever
(C) Be Exterminated
Al Imran 3:85 ” If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be accepted of him …”
Al Tauba 9:33 “It is He (Allah) who hath sent His apostle (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to proclaim it over all other religions…”
3. Why should defenders of Western civilization be concerned about core Islamic doctrine, law, and scripture?
Very simple. Sharia is the nemesis of Democracy. Sharia is the destroyer of all known freedoms. Sharia is anathema to genuine individual liberty and must NEVER take root on the soil of any nation that is not Islamic. Under Sharia, not even a blade of grass can grow.
4. Is the classic Islam of Muhammad and his companions and the early scholars compatible with Western-style liberal democracy?
For those who have still not understood what I am revealing, there is no concept of Democracy either in the psyche or the language of Islam. That is why the Arabs and Muslims use the Arabized Greek word for “democracy,” calling it “DEMOQRATIYAH”!
There is absolutely nothing ‘liberal’ about either Sharia or Muhammadan Islam. Muhammad, after all, declared to his followers
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.73 Narrated by Abdullah bin Abi Aufa
Allah’s Apostle said, “Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords.”
In fact, believing Muslims are not allowed to so much as question Islam, again per the Qur’an:
O ye who believe! ask not questions about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble — Q 5:101
…the command of Allah is a decree determined — Q 33:38
5. If people, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, took the time to read and study the Qur’an, what would they learn?
I have spent more than 30 years on these subjects and not once did I attempt to change the indoctrinated mind of a follower of Muhammad, knowing full well it would be extremely difficult.
Most important of all, Americans must understand that any Muslim who leaves the faith would be killed by his own ‘loving’ family and or friends. Even in our Western democracies, most of those who leave Islam must do so in secrecy.
“Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him.” – Bukhari 9.84.57
“When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostasizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.” — Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law (08.1)
“If they [Muslims] had gotten rid of the punishment [often death] for apostasy, Islam would not exist today.” Yousef al-Qaradawi, Senior Jurist of the Muslim Brotherhood, on Egyptian TV
Any decent and fair-minded person reading Muhammad’s Quran must come to only ONE conclusion: It is a rambling, incoherent, jumbled scripture of hatred and enmity that no true God would have ever revealed to anyone.
6. What is the most important thing Westerners should know about the life of the Muslim prophet Muhammad ?
First and foremost, Muhammad should not be called a “prophet” because there is nowhere in his Qur’an and Hadith that he prophesized anything. Instead, in the Qur’an, the hadiths, and the Sira (biography of Muhammad), we read in the original Islamic scriptures themselves that Muhammad committed crimes against humanity on a massive scale: these scriptures themselves recount that Muhammad ordered assassinations of the elderly and nursing mothers because they ridiculed him; that he raped and enslaved captured women; that he personally participated in the mass killing of POWs; that he led a military campaign of genocide against the Jewish tribes of the Arabian Peninsula; and that he married a six-year-old and raped her at aged nine (his child bride, Aisha). I say this not because of anger or a mere wish to be insulting. I do so based entirely on the Islamic records themselves that I can quote in chapter and verse to support my assertions.For example, each of these assertions may be found precisely as described in the Sirat (biographies) of Muhammad, as written by faithful Muslims. One of the most authoritative of those biographies comes to us from the Muslim historian Ibn Ishak, as translated by Alfred Guillaume: “The Life of Muhammad.” It is available on Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/Life-Muhammad-I-Ishaq/dp/0196360331
7. Is there a significant number of Muslims in the world today who are willing to contradict, either publicly or within their own communities, Islamic teachings on things like the death penalty for adultery, apostasy, or homosexuality?
No Muslim can live more than a few seconds if he/she in any way shape or form contradicts anything in Muhammad’s Quran or says anything against him. Only a handful of apostates from Islam can do so in our democracies.
Please understand that the instant any follower of Muhammad criticizes anything about their cult belief system, that person becomes instantly an infidel worthy of death and destruction.
Again, to cite from the Reliance of the Traveler: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law:
Acts That Entail Leaving Islam
08.7 (3) to speak words that imply unbelief…
(4) to revile Allah or His messenger…
(7) to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus belongs to it…
(14) to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims…is part of Islam…
8. What can or should free people do to ensure that their societies do not fall under the domination of Islamic Law (shariah) ?
Each and every American who cherishes their Constitution and FREEDOM (of thought, belief, association, politics, religion, thought, etc.) must not allow any judge or administration to allow Islamic Law (shariah) the slightest chance of taking root on American soil because Sharia is like a virulent virus, the most deadly known to humankind.
My conclusions based on over 30 years of studies are:
1. Islam is NOT a Religion but most definitely a CULT belief system as well as a legal, military, political, and social system of totalitarian control.
2. Allah is most assuredly NOT the same as the God of Jesus, Moses and Abraham because Allah is only the NAME of the supreme moon god of Pagan Arabia centuries before Muhammad and his Quran and represented to this day in the Kaba’a by an ancient meteorite called the Black Stone.
3. Jihad is most definitely NOT a spiritual struggle to commune with God but eternal WAR against all Unbelievers until all humanity is subject to Sharia.
4. No god called Allah nor any angel called Gabriel ever revealed a single verse to Muhammad because every letter, word, verse and Chapter in the Quran is the product of Muhammad’s imaginings, the secretions of his depraved mind, his Alter Ego, his Autobiography, but very cleverly projected into the unsuspecting mouths of Allah and Gabriel to give them the aura of sanctity and divinity.
5. It is by Divine Will (Qidra Ilahyyah) and divine Justice (Haq Ilahi) that the very Hadiths that explain to the followers of Muhammad his Quran and Sunna, are the very same that utterly DISCREDIT Muhammad as a prophet and the ALLEGED divine origin of his Quran.
6. Although my statements may sound outrageous and hyperbolic to those hearing and seeing them for the first time, I can and do (as in this interview) corroborate every single assertion that I make with citations from the Islamic scriptures themselves.
