Peaceful Islam ??
Truly the West is "starry eyed".
The word Islam means "submission" to the precepts of Allah, proclaiming that Islam is "Peace". But Islam is no religion of peace, far from it, as history attests and also our own very days give plain demonstration. When they say "peace" they do not mean our "Peace". For us the meaning we give to peace is for all men to live in harmony, every one free to keep and practice his own beliefs, no so for Islam. When Islam means peace they mean: 'everyone under Allah', in other words, all world to be converted to Islam, even by force, as they did in their expansion, both East and West.
When expanding in Christian Northern Africa in the 7th century, they had a very effective way of "evangelisation", they would put the question: "Allah or Christ?" if the answer was Christ, then off with the head. Indeed we see that their conquests are still under the cappella of Islam, even after many centuries, and if a Muslim converts to Christianity is liable of death, as we saw recently in Afghanistan.
They have already tried to conquer Europe twice and if it was not for Martell that stopped them in south of France and for El Cid and others who drove them out of Spain and for the Polish army that stopped them in Vienna years later, we would all be speaking Arabic now. Maybe with Iran getting the Bomb shortly, the third time they may succeed given a weak, degraded, and deeply decadent Europe and retreating USA as the Democrats will gain power. No doubt Europe will soon be asking for a "Strong man" to save her. But the cause of this decadence is their very own invention that is heralded as the best thing since sliced bread; yes, it is Democracy and its daughters such as Abortion, Feminism, Divorces and the rest.
At the time of Mohammed the "Arabic nation" was composed of many tribes all very pagan with their own many gods including the tribe of Mohammed that had Allah as one of its gods. Eventually Mohammed had the upper hand and forcefully brought the other tribes under his god Allah. This is the force and foundation of their power base, nothing has changed and the aim is still to bring the whole world under the "peace" of Allah. They are not very secretive about this aim; if you listen to their leaders they plainly state this aim, as depicted in one of their placard clearly stating their plan for Europe
Also they have a deep-seated hate for Israel, from the Iranian president to every other Muslim. However if you ask them why of such hate, they do not really know, they will probably mention Palestine, but that is just an excuse, if not that one, then another. The root of such hate is to be found in Biblical times, indeed it is more that that, it is a satanic thing.
What will the future bring, well President Ahmadinejad of Iran has been reported as saying in an official meeting that the end of history is only two or three years away. Perhaps due to his doing for his country is only as few months away to get the "Bomb", and they will, independently by all the "pussyfooting" of the West. This "prophecy" is in line with other "prophecies" that have the "end of the world" between 2007 and 2015. Ahmadinejad is saying that the world is 2 or 3 years from a major catastrophe, this is also reported by many prophets of doom and gloom; Christian and non, for example from a Christian point of view taking Jesus' words paraphrased "after the time of the Gentiles is finished that generation will not pass away" before His return. Now the time of the Gentile finished when Israel took control fully of Jerusalem and that was in 1967, a generation is normally taken as 40 years and that makes 2007, on the other hand a generation is also taken by some to be 50 or even 70, so take your pick.
Anyway, the world is now in such a state that even babies see the writing on the wall, we are DEFINITELY heading for a huge crack, pretty soon.
Yes, it seems that the religion of "peace" Islam may be instrumental in bringing about Armageddon, sooner than we think.
Well! Is Islam a religion of Peace???
