This article was posted as a Press Release via the link below:
The Gladstone Institute has recently published articles by seasoned journalists and writers that present the dangers of Islam and the reaction by political and religious leaders. In particular, I was motivated to write this post after reading articles by two writers highly knowledgeable about Islamic terror events. I would be remiss not to mention they were: Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, author and Italian journalist; and Saied Shoaaib, a Muslim writer that researches Islamic movements.
In a June 4th, 2017 Gatestone Institute article, Giulio Meotti clearly revealed that Christian religious leaders and political leaders in Europe silently stood by as Islamic terrorists transformed their churches into mosques and killed Christians for not renouncing Christianity and accepting Islam as their religion. He informs us that secular elites and political leaders throughout Europe condemn proselytizing only when it is practiced by Christians, but never when practiced by Muslims.
More shameful, is their reluctance to fight Islamic terrorists for demolishing the hundreds of churches replaced by mosques in many European countries such as England, France and Germany. In Syria and Iraq, Islamic terrorists have demolished Christian churches, committed mass decapitations, raped women and killed men and boys who would not renounce their faith.
Mr. Meotti verified the eventual demise of the Christian religion in Europe by writing, “It is impossible for any observer to deny that Christianity is descending into a terminal crisis in Europe. Catholic leaders in the Netherlands estimate that two-thirds of their 1,600 churches will be out of use in a decade, and that 700 Dutch Protestant churches will be closed within four years. The Church of England closes around 20 churches a year. The Catholic Church in Germany has closed about 515 churches over the last ten years. You find the same scenario everywhere in Europe.”
On June 5th, 2017, Saied Shoaaib presented two alternatives to defeat Islam: (1) expose its true nature by supporting and circulating the views of liberal Muslim scholars who reject the premise of an extremist political Islam; (2) imams in Western countries must be held to the same standard as members of other professions by being required to receive occupational licenses that support objectives to attain a peaceful life and integrate Muslims into other societies without fear by Islamic fundamentalists.
Mr. Shoaaib identified liberal Muslim scholars who reject the premise of extremist, political Islam. Many share the conclusion, “that the “caliphate” is merely a project to colonize more land, as all the old empires did, and that the hostility toward Jews connected to the Muhammed’s battle with the Banu Qurayza in the 7th century should have ended long ago.”
Understand the Islamic Problem in Order to Solve the Problem
Efforts by writers and scholars are informative but can they motivate world leaders of free democratic countries to no longer tolerate an Islamic cancer that spreads and distorts their values of humanity? The answer is NO. Toleration is a politically correct mentality that must be replaced with an education to UNDERSTAND the Islamic threat and WHY it has grown to metastasize into a religion of hate that will not tolerate other religious beliefs.
So HOW do we educate people all over the globe about the Islamic threat? To write about the many abominable attacks by Muslim terrorists serves to identify the Islamic threat. But now people must investigate HOW to STOP this threat from continuing to spread.
An Islamic Revolution by an Egyptian President
On January 1, 2015, the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi spoke to Islamic scholars from Al-Azhar, the highest center of Sunni Muslim learning. His message was for Muslim leaders to rethink religious discourse and “purge it of flaws” that negatively affect Islam. Before this author presents an effective way to STOP Islamic expansion, it is well to emphasize the impassioned speech of this outstanding president who is not only pious but a perceptive intellectual leader.
“I say and repeat, again, that we are in need of a religious revolution. You imams are responsible before Allah. The entire world is waiting on you. The entire world is waiting for your word … because the Islamic world is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost. And it is being lost by our own hands,”
“We need a revolution of the self, a revolution of consciousness and ethics to rebuild the Egyptian person — a person that our country will need in the near future,”
“It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire Islamic world to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible that this thinking — and I am not saying the religion — I am saying this thinking,” He continued: “This is antagonizing the entire world. It’s antagonizing the entire world! Does this mean that 1.6 billion people (Muslims) should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants — that is 7 billion — so that they themselves may live? Impossible!”
President el-Sisi alluded to, but did not specifically identify the “source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world.” Indirectly, he said, “this thinking” that Muslims hold as most sacred “is antagonizing the entire world.” That sacred source, indoctrinated into the Muslim thinking mind, is the Qur’an. It is quite plausible that all the religious leaders and scholars listening to President el-Sisi knew he was referring to the Qur’an as the sacred source.
It is essential that Islamic scholars and Muslim followers comprehend and react to President el-Sisi in a positive manner by deeply examining HOW the Qur’an can be revised to replace the many verses that incite hatred, bigotry, violence and murder of those that follow another faith with the Christian command to “Love one another” (John 13:34, 15:12 and 15:17).
To verify that the source President el-Sisi did not wish to name is indeed the Qur’an, people need to read Allah, We, Our and Us. It provides a history how Islam became a Theocratic Empire in just 29 years and reveals the abominable verses of the Qur’an. The verses provided are unaltered to clearly show they incite hatred, bigotry, violence, and the killing of people who have other religious beliefs. More importantly, this book indicates HOW a peaceful solution may be attained.
Answer to Stop Islamic Expansion and Terrorism
Ultimately, HOW can Islam be transformed to become a peaceful religion that allows its followers to respect the religious beliefs of other people and successfully integrate themselves into the cultures of other freedom loving countries? The ANSWER is a Religious Reformation of Islam. President el-Sisi urged Islamic religious leaders to endorse a Religious Revolution, which connotes combat rather than improvement. But WHAT should be the message of an Islamic Religious Reformation? It is simply three words announced by a man of God as a command, LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
To STOP Islamic expansion that forges forward with hatred, bigotry, violence and murder is to Revise the Qur’an. But HOW can this Reformation Movement be successfully implemented peacefully without causing World War III?
Answer: All powerful leaders, wealthy businessmen, financially endowed humanitarians, Government agencies, the National Media in America and many other countries must join their resources together to spread a powerful propaganda, or advertising campaign, to educate and inform people WHY Islam is a danger to peace-loving people and WHY the Qur’an must be revised.
Key for successful implementation of these objectives is EXPOSE the abominable verses in the Qur’an that cause Muslims to become bigots, hate, and murder people that do not follow Islam. To UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM and attain an objective analysis of the abominable verses read Allah, We, Our and Us.
Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel
The song by Simon and Garfunkel emphasizes the need to read Allah, We, Our and Us and understand Why the Qur’an must be revised. There is an Internet effort by Google to censor the Simon and Garfunkel song on video. However, this author was able to find a YouTube video by Eric Allen Bell. It is provided below. For further backup, alternate YouTube and VIMEO video links are provided. These videos emphasize the need for people world-wide to understand Why the Qur’an must be revised.
Islam Religious Reformation Implementation
To initiate the Religious Reformation campaign, aimed at having Muslim religious leaders revise the Qur’an, many thousands of copies of Allah, We, Our and Us need to be printed for distribution in many countries. Hopefully, it is the wealthy businessmen and women, and humanitarians that will purchase the book and have it distributed to all educational institutions and government organizations in many countries. The objective is to educate and inform Muslims, and people world-wide, about the dangers of Islam and have them “see” the need to revise the Qur’an.
The counterintelligence agencies of countries threaten by Islamic terrorism can effectively defeat Islamic propaganda efforts by publicizing and promoting their people to read historical and factual information in Allah, We, Our and Us. National media in the U.S. and counterintelligence agencies, such as the FBI and CIA, to name a few, can be proactive in supporting the Islam Religious Reformation by encouraging their personnel to use the book to advance countermeasures against Islamic propaganda that incites terrorism.
Any profits from the sale of Allah, We, Our and Us will go towards the Reformation Campaign. This book is available as a FREE READ by clicking the link below,
The ignorance of Islamic ideology by people in America and many countries is due to a failure of learning history about Islam and having objective discussions of the Qur’an. Allah, We, Our and Us provides information that will stimulate perceptive and compassionate Islamic religious leaders to acknowledge that scripture is not encased in concrete but must be revised as Muslims become more educated and knowledgeable of the world.
Realistic Perception of Islamic Religious Leaders and Scholars
History reveals an inability of religious leaders to eliminate abominable verses and endorse the command to “love one another’ in the Qur’an. The inability by Islamic religious leaders to adapt to change is due to an ingrained indoctrination that blocks any appreciation for the religious beliefs of others and an open mind to improve the Qur’an. Few Islamic scholars are capable of looking from outside the cage of indoctrinated beliefs to “see” the flaws in the Qur’an. Many Islamic scholars have presented ways to make Islam acceptable to all people but were killed for apostasy. One example was Mahmud Muhammad Taha, a Muslim reformer who dared to die for his convictions.
The Islamic Challenge for All Muslims
Muslims around the world must loudly insist their religious leaders Revise the Qur’an. Such a mandate can be accomplished by organizing a Religious Reformation of Islam. To NOT revise the Qur’an by eliminating its many abominable verses and endorsing the command to love one another, Islamic religious leaders will be responsible for the next World War. Countries around the world will no longer tolerate the spread of Islam. They have experienced that Islam causes discontent wherever it settles. As indirectly announced by President el-Sisi, it is the Qur’an that Muslims regard as most sacred and is the source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. His words are worth repeating to all Muslims and their leaders,
“The entire world is waiting on you. The entire world is waiting for your word … because the Islamic world is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost. And it is being lost by our own hands,”
A Word to Muslims and Islamic Scholars
This challenge will be most difficult for Islamic scholars and Muslim leaders as revealed by the mindset of the Islamic scholar, Dr. Ahmed Subhi Mansour. In his book, “The Quran: Sufficient as a Source of Islamic Legislation,” he advocates what Muslims are indoctrinated to believe, which is that the Qur’an reflects the mighty words of God and is the only book to which the Muslim must hold fast to the exclusion of other books.
“Some of us see that belief in the Qur’an alone is enough, but see no harm in believing in other books with the Qur’an which the imams wrote and ascribed to the prophet (peace be upon him!). However, if we were to reflect on the mighty words of God in the honourable Qur’an, we would become sure that the Qur’an is the only book to which the Muslim must hold fast to the exclusion of other books. We would also become sure that the Qur’an is not in need of these human authored books; for the Qur’an has left nothing out, and it came down clarifying everything, and in it came the details of everything needed in clarity and precision.”
It is the above mindset that restricts the ability of Muslins to accept other forms of worship or beliefs. Dr. Mansour is captive to such a mindset. He has been deeply indoctrinated with the Qur’an and has completely accepted its verse 9:33. It indelibly prints on the minds of all Muslims that Islam is the true religion and Allah will make it prevail over all other religions with the words:
Sura 9:33. “He (Allah) it is Who sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam) that He may make it prevail over every other religion, even though those who associate partners with Allah may dislike it.”
Note the contradiction in Dr. Mansour’s quote above. He writes that the Qur’an was written by imams and ascribed to the prophet, but with the next thought, he writes the honourable Qur’an are the mighty words of God. Did the imams write portions of the Qur’an in addition to the words given Muhammad from God’s Archangel Gabriel? There is undisputable evidence in Allah, We, Our and Us (3.3.12) that a party of religious men wrote many portions of the Qur’an.
Islamic scholars are well schooled to know that the Qur’an was conceived through Muhammad’s exposure to Hebrew and Christian beliefs. Verses for the Qur’an were conceived by Muhammad, as with other God inspired men, to raise his people to the next level of spiritual worship. Astute Islamic scholars know that beliefs of each religion were founded by righteous men, inspired by their belief in God, to provide a moral code for their people. Imams, caliphs and mullahs must work with their Islamic scholars to realize that beliefs can be changed; they are not encased in concrete. Can they confront the need to revise the Qur’an to raise Muslims to a higher level of love for all mankind?
All People Must Be Part of the Islamic Reformation
All people must assist Muslims to acknowledge that the Qur’an must be revised to advocate the command to love one another. Perhaps to “see” why it is necessary, they must first read Allah, We, Our and Us. A book that was not written for profit but to inform and educate people so that their minds are not warped with beliefs that cause bigotry, hatred, violence and the murder of people with other religious beliefs.
Revise the Qur’an or Begin WWIII
Islamic leaders and scholars must take the next step in advancing Muslims to a higher level of spirituality that promotes love of all people by revising the Qur’an. To NOT take on this noble effort, which advocates the command to love one another, is to cause continued Islamic terrorism and eventually, World War III.
