Kenya & Evil

Like many of us, I watched the reports and read the articles, and looked at the photos of the Islamic Atrocity in Kenya.

I was going to write a scathing open letter to Islam, calling for peace.  I’ve thought about this all day.  How I was going to illustrate how Islam’s fundamentalists lead to hatred and extremism, and fosters violence in the fervent, the ignorant and the enthusiastic.  The more I thought about it, the more hopeless the effort became, because it would fall not on deaf ears, but ears that choose not to hear.  Ears on the heads that have already decided.

I am reminded of Matthew Chapter 7, Verse 16.  I’ll link to a wider translation, than just the King James version which I prefer. Also, Luke 6:44.

These actions are happening for a purpose, for a reason.  They are fulfilling the goals for which they are directed. These are people who are being lead to do evil, by evil.  Because their fruits are obvious.

  1. Great post. I wish our politicians, teachers, and religious leaders would say things more like this. I hope more people read this.

  2. I would like to see and hear one prominent Islamic leader condemn these types of evil in the name of Islam.
    Also, where is the outrage and condemnation of these acts from the rest of the 1.6 billion followers of Islam? Or at the very least a couple of hundred of them…..

  3. Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah”

    “The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. ” (And Obama is on their side.)

    Know thine enemy.


  4. Thanks, George. Scripture and history remind us that there is true evil in this world. That evil will recruit and subjugate people and sometimes entire cultures to its purposes.

    A good read on the evils of fundamentalist Islam, is Son of Hamas, written by Mosab Hassan Yousef. He is the son of one of the founders of the Palestinian terrorist organization, Hamas. He engaged in numerous acts of terrorism before being captured and imprisoned by the Israelis. Through something miraculous he converted to Christianity, became an informant for Israeli intelligence, and has condemned both terrorism and Islam because of its inherent call for violence against non-believers.

  5. Not to beat a dead horse:

    Abdul Samad, a militant Pakistani cleric in an audio lecture posted on jihadi online forums by Al Qaeda broadcaster Al-Sahab: Used the Koran to make the point that those who do not believe in Allah – “even if they are relatives – are foes; that Jews, Christians and atheists are “enemies” of Islam; and that jihad is needed in order to get rid of “infidels” and spread Islam worldwide.”

    “Enmity towards infidels is a must. It is part of our faith. Islam says the Muslims should stay away from the infidels and their countries,” he said.
    And the solution is jihad: “The best way to get rid of them (infidels) is to continue jihad until the Allah’s faith (Islam) is completely enforced all over the world.”

    “Our enmity towards them (the non-believers) will continue even if they renounce all their crimes,” he added.

    By the way these “warriors of god” killed fifty children sleeping in a school in the middle east this morning.

  6. Kind of reminds me of the Obama advisor that suggested it would be necessary to kill “about” 25 million conservatives when they obtained enough power to do so, to ensure the triumph of “socialism” in America…enemies of human kind are not just over seas….

  7. Amen G, I believe they will continue to push us into a cultural war. However, I think it is important to avoid quoting scripture in any discussion of Islam. We can’t fight religion with religion. That’s like fighting fire with gasoline. These are just evil men and women, and islam is just the context they use to wage their cowardly war. Otherwise, It will just be Crusades and Jihads all over again for the umpteenth time in our history. I really believe that we have to take the religious context out of this fight. It does not take a religious person to see that their fruits are evil. Even the secular, agnostic, and atheist can see evil, wrong-doing, and malice this apparent. I hope the world can rally around the idea of secular fight against extremism of all kinds – not in the name of God, but for the simple idea of a better present and a better future for our children. Once the secular world, of which Christians are a large part, goes full beast-mode on these cowards and criminals we will finally have peace. When the scum realize that even Zen Buddhists are willing to take up arms against them, right next to the Christian Crusader, and the Atheist fed up with their slaughter of innocents, it is game over. Their religion will have to purge itself of this filth or be purged from the earth once that happens. But I don’t think it is going to be a Christian Crusader who leads the battle to end this, and the politicians and the clergy love their positions more than they love peace. Sometime it takes a big bang to get the quiet period that comes after. It’s time for that big bang. We need to be out in the streets clamoring for justice, just like they do when someone offends mohammed, every time they kill an innocent person. We need to riot! Surround every Mosque in the world until the leaders choose sides – extremism or peace demanded from all willing to pick up that “big stick”. Call for sanctions and boycott every theocratic state until they cleanse their nation of this contagious scourge. Not because our God is better than their god, but because we just don’t feel like buying oil and rugs from people who turn a blind eye to the evil in their own ranks. It will likely be folks like you who catalyze this process, so that is why I bring it up. Make your voice unimpeachable to the secular world at large and make it loud, brother. I’m with you.

  8. Islam is a fascist totalitarian movement masquerading as a religion (death cult). It’s not about gods of any sort; it’s about power and death. The “religion” of Islam is the frame work for global fascist domination and that has been the “plan” since its child raping, genocidal “prophet” started the whole thing with goat herders in the first century. I am afraid that there is only one out come possible in the conflict between humanity and Islam, total global war until one is wiped off the face of the earth. I hope to whatever god you worship I am wrong but every year I see what I believe is more evidence to that fact. Iran will according to the best estimates have 1-5 atomic bombs within the year 2014. It’s going to be bad.
