Furthering the theme begun yesterday on the merits or lack thereof of Islamic Muslim ideology and its incessant promotion by the present occupant of We the People’s White House, I bring to you the topic of why Islam is irreversible in any transformational reform proposed by its apologists. Quite simply, Islam cannot be “reformed” no matter who founded it, and the question of why? is patently simple.
For starters, Islam simply has no intrinsic mechanisms for reform, as Islamists and the dhimmis in America who excuse it (*cough* Obama *cough* Lindsey Graham *cough* John McCain *cough* and others) seem unaware that there is very little in Islam that compares to Judeo-Christian doctrine. Islamic apologists love to point out the commands in the Old Testament to utterly destroy the Canaanites and to stone adulterers, etc. as proof that there is a moral equivalence; the difference being of course, that Judaism and Christianity both are filled with admonitions to be kind to strangers and live in peace among them so long as they are peaceful in return. During the Exodus, for example, it was not just God’s chosen people whom Moses led from Egypt, it was also “mixed multitudes” who were all welcome to escape Egypt .. “And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.” ~ Exodus 12:38
Islam on the other hand, has no such admonitions since its commands to subjugate or kill foreigners is absolute, and it also is open-ended. Judeo-Christianity on the other hand, evolved from commands of God to eradicate the inhabitants of the promised land, directed toward a specific people at a specific time and place for a specific reason; and similarly with the coming of the Messiah, wherein all the points of the law were fulfilled in Christ. With Islam however, there have been no such limiting conditions nor fulfillment of the law and never will be. The difference with Islam is that commands given in the 7th century to “kill the infidel” are the same for all time and eternity, and why we cannot embrace it.
Genesis 23: 28-33: “And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you. I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beast of the field become too numerous for you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. And I will set your bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the River. For I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
In other words, God was the arbiter of driving the sinful hordes out of Canaan and actually helped his people Israel in accomplishing the feat to eliminate every living thing in the promised land before the people occupied it; their corruption and sin against mankind had become so heinous, brutal and wanton that it infected everything. They openly indulged in rape, sodomy, child abuse and molestation, sacrificing of babies to Molech, public drunkenness, murder and torture, and all the rest of it. God did not want that infection to spread to his people. Yet here we are, 4000 years later, in a self-congratulatory spirit of making ourselves look “tolerant”, throwing open wide the gates to allow the infection to take root once again which could well become the demise of our grandchildren and great grandchildren.
As for Islam, Muhammad, while the central figure, is not Allah. Unlike Christianity where Jesus is God incarnate, Muhammad is still just a man, a “perfect prophet” to whom Allah revealed his word. Thus it doesn’t matter to the committed Muslim what heinous acts Muhammad committed; he did them under duress from the direction of Allah, as today’s Muslims are instructed to do as well for all time and eternity, until the world is all Muslim.
Judeo-Christianity is reformable because it centers around a Savior who came to reconcile man to God, forgive him of his sins, and deliver him from evil. Muhammad is not a savior, and Islam has none awaiting. Instead, they have a coming 12th Imam, who will create a worldwide caliphate. It is the world that will be reformed to Islam, they believe, not Islam that will be reformed.
We read in the book of Deuteronomy that God did not command Israel to “reform” the Canaanites; rather, he commanded: “But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee: That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God.” ~ Deuteronomy 20: 16-18
But good luck convincing any Muslim what a terrible example of humanity Muhammad was. Do you really think people who view sex with toddlers as normal and rape as punishment for which the woman is then blamed will be shocked and have second thoughts about it? Bottom line is, without Muhammad there is no Islam as he set the standard for modern terrorists. His life story is consumed by terrorism so it is no small leap to figure out why Islam creates and supports terrorists. Islam cannot be reformed in any sense without making it not Islam.
Despite evidence to the contrary over the past 1400 years, our multi-cultural PC indoctrination teaches us to somehow believe that all peoples’ beliefs are morally equivalent. History however teaches the very opposite – they are not, and they never have been. Only those who think Islam is somehow equivalent to other religions could even possibly have such a ridiculous thought. Islam – by its very design – is immune to reformation. Period. It’s been repeated here countless times; there is no radical or moderate Islam. There is only Islam. People who follow Islam in thought are those most apt to follow its practices – including either killing infidels or supporting those who do. People who support those who help harm others are defined as accomplices according to our laws. It is HIGH TIME we start insisting upon such enforcement. One’s “religion” cannot be used as an excuse to inflict harm upon others – ever.
The only decision remaining to be considered now is how to deal with an ideology which promotes practices in violation of our Constitution and our laws.
