Recently, a Pakistani religious leader, Pirzada Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai, said: “When the Jews are wiped out … the sun of peace [will] begin to rise on the entire world.” The same preaching is routinely done not only by clerics, but by politicians — in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and elsewhere. This is not just Ahmedinijad; it is at the heart of Islamic theology that world peace will be established only when all the Jews are wiped from the earth. But few people in Western media are alarmed by this kind of rhetoric or care to expose this dreadful dark side of Islam’s obsession with Jew-hatred.
I do not believe that one has to be an authority on human behavior or group thinking to find out the obvious pathology in Islamic Jew-hatred. It is time for all of us to uncover and expose this atrocity against the Jewish people. We owe that to humanity and the truth.
No true Muslim can see that such hatred is unbecoming and unholy for a world religion to focus on and that the credibility of Islam is tarnished by such hatred. No Muslim is allowed to go far enough to self-analyze or ask why such hatred. Muslims defend Jew-hatred by claiming that Jews betrayed Muhammad and thus deserve of this kind of treatment. Even when I was a Muslim, I believed that the one-sided story against Jews by Islam was enough to justify all the killing, terror, lies, and propaganda by Islamic leaders against Jews. To the average Muslim, routinely cursing Jews in mosques feels normal and even holy!
After a lot of thinking, analysis, research, and writing, I discovered that Jew -atred in Islam is an essential foundation to the Islamic belief system that Muslims cannot seem to be able to rid themselves of. Jew-hatred masks an existential problem in Islam. Islam is terrified of the Jews, and the number-one enemy of Islam is the truth, which must be constantly covered at any cost. It does not matter how many Muslim men, women, and children die in the process of saving Islam’s reputation. The number-one duty of Muslims is to protect the reputation of Islam and Mohammad. But why would a religion burden its followers like that? This is why:
When Mohammed embarked on his mission to spread Islam, his objective was to create a uniquely Arabian religion, one created by an Arab prophet, which reflected the Arabian values and culture. Yet to obtain legitimacy, he had to link it to the two previous Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Christianity. He expected the Jewish tribes who lived in Arabia to declare him their Messiah and thereby bring him more legitimacy with Arabs, especially with his own tribe in Mecca, the Quraish. Because his own tribe had rejected and ridiculed him, Mohammed needed the approval of the Jews, whom he called the people of the book. But the conversion of Jews to Islam was part of the scenario that Mohammed had to accomplish in order to prove to Meccans that they had made a mistake by rejecting him.
That was one of the reasons Mohammed chose to migrate to Medina, a town that had predominantly been settled by Jewish tribes and a few impoverished Arabs who lived around the Jews. The Jews allowed Mohammed to move in. At the beginning, the Koran of Mecca was full of appeals to the Jews, who were then described as “guidance and light” (5:44) and a “righteous” people (6:153-154), who “excelled the nations” (45:16). But when the Jews rejected the appeasement and refused to convert to Islam, Mohammed simply and completely flipped. The Quran changed from love to threats and then pure hatred, cursing, and commandments to kill Jews. Rejection by the Jews became an intolerable obsession with Mohammed.
Not only did the Jews reject him, but their prosperity made Mohammed extremely envious. The Jewish Arabian tribes earned their living from legitimate and successful business, but Mohammed earned his living and wealth through warfare — by attacking Arab tribes, some of whom were from his own tribe — and trade caravans, seizing their wealth and property. That did not look good for a man who claimed to be a prophet of God. The mere existence of the Jews made Mohammed look bad, which led Mohammed to unspeakable slaughter, beheading of 600 to 900 Jewish men of one tribe, and taking their women and children as slaves. Mohammed had the first pick of the prettiest woman as his sex slave. All of this senseless slaughter of the Jews was elaborately documented in Islamic books on the life of Mohammed — not as something to be ashamed of, but as justified behavior against evil people.
One does not have to be psychiatrist to see the obvious: that Mohammad was a tormented man after the massacre he orchestrated and forced his fighters to undertake to empower and to enrich himself and his religion. To reduce his torment, he needed everyone around him, as well as future generations, to participate in the genocide against the Jews, the only people whom he could not control. An enormous number of verses in the Koran encouraged Mohammed’s fighters to fight, kill, and curse Muslim fighters who wanted to escape fighting and killing Jews. The Quran is full of promises of all kinds of pleasure in heaven to those who followed Mohammed’s killing spree and curses and condemnation to those who chose to escape from fighting. Muslims were encouraged to feel no hesitation or guilt for the genocide because it was not they who did it, but rather “Allah’s hand.”
Mohammed never got over his anger, humiliation, and rejection by “the people of the book” and went to his grave tormented and obsessed that some Jews were still alive. On his deathbed, Mohammed entrusted Muslims to kill Jews wherever they found them, which made this a “holy commandment” that no Muslim can reject. Muslims who wrote sharia understood how Mohammed was extremely sensitive to criticism, and that is why criticizing Mohammed became the highest crime in Islam that will never be forgiven even if the offender repents. Mohammed’s message on his deathbed was not for his followers to strive for holiness, peace, goodness, and to treat their neighbors as themselves, but rather a commandment for Muslims to continue the killing and the genocide against the Jews. Killing thus became a holy act of obedience to Mohammed and Allah himself.
Mohammed portrayed himself as a victim of Jews, and Muslims must avenge him until judgment day. With all Arab power, money, and influence around the world today, they still thrive at portraying themselves as victims. Sharia also codified into law the duty of every Muslim to defend Mohammed’s honor and Islam with his own blood, and allowed the violation of many commandments if it is for the benefit of defending Islam and Mohammed. Thus, Muslims are carrying a huge burden, a holy burden, to defend Mohammed with their blood, and in doing so they are allowed to kill, lie, cheat, slander, and mislead.
Mohammed must have felt deep and extreme shame after what he had done to the Jews, and thus a very good reason had to be found to explain away his genocide. By commanding Muslims to continue the genocide for him, even after his death, Mohammad expanded the shame to cover all Muslims and Islam itself. All Muslims were commanded to follow Mohammed’s example and chase the Jews wherever they went. One hundred years after Mohammed’s death, Arabs occupied Jerusalem and built Al Aqsa mosque right on top of the Jewish Temple ruins, the holiest spot of the Jews. Muslims thought they had erased all memory of Jewish existence.
Mohammed’s genocide of the Jews of Arabia became an unholy dark mark of shame in Islamic history, and that shame, envy, and anger continues to get the best of Muslims today. In the eyes of Mohammed and Muslims, the mere existence of the Jewish people, let alone an entire Jewish state, delegitimizes Islam and makes Mohammed look more like a mass murderer than like a prophet. For Muslims to make peace with Jews and acknowledge that Jews are humans who deserve the same rights as everyone else would have a devastating effect on how Muslims view their religion, their history, and the actions of their prophet.
Islam has a major existential problem. By no will of their own, the Jews found themselves in the middle of this Islamic dilemma. Islam must justify the genocide that Mohammad waged against the Jews. Mohammad and Muslims had two choices: either the Jews are evil sub-humans, apes, pigs, and enemies of Allah, a common description of Jews still heard regularly in Middle Eastern mosques today, or Mohammad was a genocidal warlord not fit to be a prophet of God — a choice that would mean the end of Islam.
Then and now, Mohammad and Muslims clearly chose the first worldview and decreed that any hint of the second must be severely punished. Jews must remain eternally evil enemies of Islam if Islam is to remain legitimate. There is no third solution to save the core of Islam from collapsing; either Mohammed was evil, or the Jews were evil. Any attempt to forgive, humanize, or live peacefully with Jews is considered treason against Islam. How can Muslims forgive the Jews and then go back to their mosques, only to read their prophet’s words, telling them they must kill Jews wherever they find them? It does not add up, if someone wants to remain Muslim.
That is why the number-one enemy of Islam is, and must remain, the truth. If the truth exposes Islam’s unjustified Jew-hatred, Muslims will be left with an empty shell of a religion, a religion whose prophet was a murderer, a thief, and a warlord. Without Jew-hatred, Islam would self-destruct.
It’s not just Jews that Muslims hate, but all the rest of mankind including a lot of other Muslims who don’t have their Mohammad straight.
Alexis de Tocqueville:
“I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”
John Quincy Adams:
“He [that would be Muhammad, the founder of Islam and Islam’s “Perfect Man”] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion [that would be Islam, not “Islamism”, nor “Radical Islam”, nor “Islamofascism”, nor “Hijacked Islam”, but ISLAM!], against all the rest of mankind.”
“Islam is as dangerous in a man as rabies is in a dog.” (Winston Churchill)
“Mohammed must have felt deep and extreme shame after what he had done to the Jews”‘
You can’t be serious. He was very proud and ecstatically happy at what he had done. Mohammad was a sadistic psychopath and hence was not even capable of any such feelings, let alone deep and extreme.
“If the truth exposes Islam’s unjustified Jew-hatred, Muslims will be left with an empty shell of a religion, a religion whose prophet was a murderer, a thief, and a warlord. Without Jew-hatred, Islam would self-destruct.”
And if I possessed Mjölnir, I’d be Thor. Muslims have been told the truth and it hasn’t changed a thing. I think it’s well past time to stop trying to win their dark hearts and evil minds.
“The angel of the Lord also said to her, “You are now pregnant. You will have a son. You will name him Ishmael. That is because the Lord has heard about your suffering. He will be like a wild donkey. He will use his power against everyone. And everyone will be against him. He will not be friendly toward any of his relatives.” – Genesis 16:7-12
Very simply, this is the true reason for Moslem lunacy and their blood hatred against the Jews. Mohammedans consider themselves “The children of Ishmael” whose inheritance as the first born of Abraham (by Hagar) was stolen by Isaac, the second born (by Sarah).
@FeralCat: I too studied Islam when I lived in the Middle East. I had some very “learned” teachers and spent many hours absorbing the Koran, Sunnah and Haddith. I could not agree with you more, that U’bul Kassim AKA Mohammed, was indeed VERY proud of himself and happy with what he had done to the Jews. Mohammed was a psychological basket case. He was a sadistic butcher, serial rapist, thief, pirate and pedophile.
That the Islamic world regards him as the “Perfect Man” reveals how deeply Muslims are deceived and incapable of ever acknowledging the truth. It also reveals how deceived Liberal Socialists in our country are.
A splendid book on the matter is titled “Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited.” Islam is not peaceful, excepting the peace following the annihilation of all dissent and submission of all mankind. There is no tradition of culture or prosperity or human rights within Islam. Instead its central idea is perpetual war and living at the expense of infidel producers. It is no longer mysterious to me why Islam is in eternal opposition to Judaism and Christianity, nor why it harmonizes so well with socialism.
Islam does not teach the same sort of compassion for the other that virtually every other religion including today’s “secular humanism” teaches. Muslims murder and torture each other without compunction and their own ummah, “brotherhood” has no condemnation to offer. That’s because they don’t value individual human life the way Christian westerners do. It’s not a concept in Islam, which means it’s not a concept in Muslims “hearts and minds”. Their hearts and minds instead understand what Allah teaches them in the Koran, namely, the Collective Will to Power.
When will our leaders understand this? And moreover understand that it is necessary in the end to treat Muslims in the way they themselves understand moral principles? Which ultimately means that they must be beaten back and vanquished and humiliated by a greater strength. That is clearly what they understand. Every move to win their hearts and minds only strengthens them, emboldens them to advance their own peculiar ethics of the world, which couldn’t give a damn about “hearts and minds”, as we understand the term. They will accept the shehada from anyone they can swindle and connive to recite it while at the same time are willing to kill anyone who leaves Islam. Whatever it takes to build the army of Islamic soldiers is what their ethics is about.
There is no way of avoiding the reality that the adults in this world are going to have to act like adults and step up and slap, and in a big way, Muslims who have made of their own societies the equivalent of “Lord of the Flies” and who now threaten to overrun every more advanced society with their mayhem. We’re going to have to come to terms this reality. Either that or it’s simply going to be cruel for all of us, with no kindness in sight, and possibly no one left to come and rescue us off an Island from Hell that in our passivity and cowardice we allowed to be taken over by moral pygmies.
Caroline asks the million dollar question. When will our leaders understand the existential threat that is Islam? The short answer is that they will never understand until we the people compel them to understanding. Compelling them to understanding necessitates the shattering of the chains of multicultural political correctness. And shattering the chains of multicultural political correctness requires destroying the American hating Left as a political force. Remember it was the blatant hypocrisy of the American hating Left (Rahm Emanuel) attacking core Christian beliefs while literally embracing the Nation of Islam (Louis Farrakhan) that drove us to eat more chicken.
The shackles of multicultural political correctness are the death shroud of Lady Liberty. Even Rush, Sean and Laura, the Titians of Freedom Radio, use the politically correct formulation of Islamist when discussing the evil done in the name of Islam. In Jihad Watch’s Islam 101 Gregory M. Davis writes; “Together, the Quran and the Sunnah establish the dictates of Sharia, which is the blueprint for the good Islamic society. Because Sharia originates with the Quran and the Sunnah, it is not optional. Sharia is the legal code ordained by Allah for all mankind. To violate Sharia or not to accept its authority is to commit rebellion against Allah, which Allah’s faithful are required to combat.”

Any Muslim who does not submit to Sharia is an apostate. The “Islamist” who embraces “radical Islam” is the devout, doctrinally pure Muslims. Muslims content to live in peace with us dogs of unbelievers are apostates. For how can devout Muslims consent to live moderately and peacefully amongst those in rebellion against Allah? This is the harsh truth that is Islam. This harsh truth is the existential threat that is Islam. This harsh truth about Islam is what we the people must compel our leaders to understand.
And just how do we do it? If you are reading this you have access to the internet. Send the writings of Nonie Darwish’s and Gregory M. Davis’ to Rush, Sean and Laura. Ask that they bring the harsh truth of the evil that is Islam to their vast audiences. Send them to your local media, churches, synagogue, fraternal originations, friends and family. Anyone and everyone you can think of. Post them on your social media sites. Be warned. I can’t remember the number of responses I’ve received branding me as a “hate filled bigot”. Eat more chicken for we are Americans. We are free men before God. We will not go quietly into the totalitarian twilight.
The indefatigable nemesis of political correctness is the truth. Unflinching truth spoken today, and an absolute commitment to unearthing, recovering, and speaking the truth of history. The enemies of humanity (socialists) have made progress by fostering lies and suppressing truth. As Reagan knew of Soviet socialism, the antidote for these lies is truth.
Bravo Ralph! Well stated. I wish we could get more Americans to read Islam 101 by Gregory Davis as an introduction to Islam. BTW, it can be found at jihadwatch (dot) org look for the link on the left.
What you’re advocating will require a generational shift in politics. A geological corollary would be a sudden tectonic shift that resulted in the creation of a new continent. It will not happen in our lifetime.
Our current crop of politicians pride themselves on their ability to “reach across the aisle” with the opposition to reach a “middle ground” that is always to the LEFT on the political spectrum, always to the detriment of Constitutional republicanism, liberty, free markets, personal responsibility, and old fashioned values like faith, honor, and patriotism.
The “religion of peace”. I laugh each time I read or hear someone – particularly a spineless politician – say this. Mr. Jayhawk here has precisely articulated, in the last sentence of his first paragrah, what this cult is all about. A cult began by evil incarnate. And propogated by like minded cultists. How in good G’s name can any sane person think otherwise. It completly boggles the mind. But it is unsurprising that people are unable to see evil before their eyes. The infuriating part of people’s ignorance is that Mr. Jayhawk’s precise definition of the false prophet is not an opinion, but fact. In every way. Only a delusional mind is unable to grasp this fact. Additionally, where are all the women’s voices?. Where is NOW, or Code Pink, or any “feminist’, or all the other shrill shills for the Democratic party. Why aren’t they marching or protesting in front of mosques or at the Saudi Arabia consulate, or other Islam based countries’? Outside of being phonies, cowards and hypocrites of course.
Terrific comments on this thread – as usual – and kudos to Mr. Jayhawk for the complete accurate biography of the false prophet Muhammed.
@turnipweed: No, Islam is not a religion. It’s an evil, perverted and heinous POLITICAL SYSTEM masquerading as a religion. I wonder if National Socialism had declared itself to be a “religion,” with Hitler as its “prophet” would our Liberals have been taken in more than they were? Naw! They supported Hitler until 1941, when Germany invaded the Soviet Union, and our Liberals’ true “soulmates” the COMMUNISTS were threatened.
Islam is a totalitarian way of life. Just as the Soviets and Nazis had to “atomize” the masses, isolating and terrorizing them; the radical Islamist must control their followers and victims in the same manner.
“The Origins of Totalitarianism” (Hannah Arendt – 1948) explains the psychology of both the Islamist and the Communist in the White House. The “Leadership Principle” creates multiple power hierarchies and police forces to isolate and terrorize the masses. Groups must be demonized to make the terror arbitrary. This created a condition where people feared talking to their neighbors and could not unite, and fear for one’s children that those who disappeared are never mentioned. It is as if they never existed.
This is why communist and Islamist are like two peas in a pod.
This is the reason why conversion FROM Islam is punishable by death, and why all alternatives are ruthlessly eradicated wherever Islam has conquered. We should never have left Iraq without insisting on total religious freedom. Given the choice, Islam is the cult of thugs. I am convinced there is no possible reform of Islam. As the author illustrates, anything like compassion is not conceptually possible.
Well, that’s as polite a way of describing pure evil that I’ve seen in a long time. Islam was invented by Mohammed as a means to justify his violent thievery, the murder of his rivals, and his sexual perversions. As wives tales and myths are always passed down through the generations, so is Islam as it justifies the shabby, deadly, and perveted way the males of Islam are allowed to treat women, while also being allowed to hate and kill those who refuse to follow their evil. Meanwhile, Muslim clerics continue to lead billions to Hell in the name of the moon god called Allah — the diety chosen by Mohammed to be their enforcer in the sky.
I’ve been studying this Middle Eastern evil for a long time, and I can’t find anything to suggest that Mohammed had one pang of conscience for the evil he justified by duping fellow disaffected Arabs
Mohammedan morals consist in prostrate like bowing 5 times a day in the general direction of some black stone in Mecca that is suppose to have fallen down from their moon-god, Allah, and attending mosque regularly at the appointed weekly time, and in breaking the ten commandments all the balance of the week. It comes natural to them to lie and cheat and kill and enslave in the first place, and then they go on and improve on that nature until they arrive at perfection.
Roger W. Knight
This is why 70% of the Egyptians, which is 80% of the Egyptian Muslims, voted for the “tiny minority of extremists”.
President Morsi declares Israel the enemy. He wants to do away with the treaty. Even though the Egyptian generals have no doubt told him that if Idrael decided to blast the Aswan Dam, 37 cubic miles of Lake Nasser would turn the Nile Valley into a coulee.
