CANADIAN NEWSPAPER PUBLISHES HATE-FILLED ATTACK ON ISLAM
ISLAM ALLOWS FOR NO OTHER FAITH
By: J. Craig, The Winnipeg (Canada) Free Press, 1/13/2001
Or search the "Faith" section of http://www.winnipegfreepress.com.
...the core doctrine of Islam allows for no other faith to exist peacefully
The key factor in understanding Islam is to realize that it must be examined
the religious and cultural context of seventh-century Arabia. Mohammed, its
founder, raised the seventh-century Arabian culture to the status of divine
In reality, Islam is the deification of seventh-century Arabian culture.
imposes this culture in its politics, family affairs, dietary laws, clothing,
religious rites and even its language. In Mohammed's Arabia, the sheik or
of the nomadic tribes had absolute authority and that is why Islamic
today are inevitably ruled by dictators or despots...
...Muslims claim that Allah is the same God as Christians and Jews worship,
that is false. Allah is a purely Arabic term referring to the Arabian moon
It was one of the many deities that already existed in Mecca, Arabia before
Mohammed, and it was represented by a black stone. When he later took control
Mecca he destroyed all the idols in the Kaaba (the holy place in Mecca)
the stone deity, the moon god Allah. The symbol of its worship in pre-Islamic
Arab culture was the crescent moon that is also on the flags of every Islamic
Mohammed, the prophet of Islam was born in AD 570 in Mecca and died in AD
At the age of 40, he supposedly started receiving revelations from the angel
Gabriel, but in the Muslim 'Bible', the Koran, there are four different
contradicting accounts of what happened.
These revelations were: that there was no god but Allah; that mankind were
slaves of God; that people would be judged or rewarded eternally based on
deeds; and, later, he was told to rob passing caravans nearby. The Koran and
history report that he fought over 66 battles killing tens of thousands of
people, including the beheading of 1,000 captured Jewish men at one time...
...Concerning the Koran itself, historian Edward Gibbon has described it as
incoherent rhapsody of fable, and precept, and declamation, which sometimes
crawls in the dust, and sometimes is lost in the clouds"...
...Another reality in Islam is that women are considered mere property in the
more fundamentalist sects. Perhaps as many as 75 per cent of Muslim women
female circumcision which is a most barbaric and painful ritual designed to
them obedient and docile.
Islamic law today includes torture, political assassination, the cutting off
hands, feet, ears, tongues, heads and the gouging out of eyes, all because
kinds of atrocities were part of the seventh-century Arabian culture.
In conclusion, while the devout Muslim believes that the doctrines of Islam
sent from heaven, Middle East scholars have shown beyond all doubt that every
belief and ritual can be traced back to pre-Islamic Arabian culture.
the religion of Islam is false, yet it is the fastest-growing religion
and it is the second largest, too -- and within Europe, as well.
This reality is an ominous threat to our western way of life and this was
chillingly revealed in a statement released by Reuter's news service in
of 1999 where a Muslim leader told Roman Catholic Archbishop Bernardini of
of Turkey that: "Thanks to your democratic laws, we will invade you. Thanks
our religious laws, we will dominate you."
ACTION REQUESTED: (As always, be firm but POLITE. Hostile responses can and
be used to further harm the image of Islam and the Muslim community.)

As A muslim typing to you from downtown Toronto Canada, I can only LAFF at the ignorance of
the gentleman who penned the above article.
I feel sorry for him.
I think he is a living example of the 'Jahiliya'
people who lived in the 7th century that he is
fond of and referencing in his article.
However MY contribution is thus:
Please do NOT email the SAME text message word
for word as your fellow muslims.
I was watching 60 minutes the other night and
they brought up a fact in the 'Letters' Section
at the end of the show.
That they received 50 letters all expressing
the same view but EVERY letter was worded the
exact same way...word for word.
So there's Mike Wallace on tv saying something
like, 'People, if you're gonna organize a letter
writing campaign, at least be a little less
obvious about it.'
Good Point hunh?
Food for type...er..thought.
Your Bro in T.O.,
