Understanding Muhammad

          (extract ...)

          John Walker Lindh, known as the "American Taliban," the young man who went to Afghanistan to serve in Al-Qaeda and fight against his own country, did not become a terrorist overnight. John's interest in Islam began when he was just a 12-year-old. His mother took him to see Spike Lee's film, Malcolm X. Time magazine quotes her saying, "He was moved by a scene showing people of all nations bowing down to God."[341]

          No one cared or knew enough to warn this young man of the dangers of Islam. On the contrary, he received approval and blessings from his parents to pursue his heart's desire, as they too were ignorant of Islam. Time Magazine, in its September 29, 2002 edition wrote, "John's parents were pleased to see that their son had found something that moved him. And at a time when other parents they knew were coping with their kids' experimentation with drugs, booze and fast driving, if all seemed fairly innocent. Marilyn (John's mother) would drop young John off at the mosque for Friday prayers. At the end of the evening, a fellow believer would drive John home."

          The tolerant American society also did not see anything wrong or alarming about a young American converting to Islam. He would stroll with his awkward Islamic outfit up and down the streets, and the good American folks did not get especially worked up. "It was just another kid experimenting with his life, with his spiritual side, certainly nothing to fear or loathe," wrote Time Magazine.

          Instead of investigating the truth about Islam, John's father allowed himself to be fooled by what he defined as the "Islamic custom of hospitality for fellow believers," which in itself is a warining sign of the cultic nature of Islam. Cultists are exceptionally "loving" and friendly towards those whom they want

to woo to their faith. Instead of warning his son of the dangers of Islam, he tried to "appreciate" his faith. One day he told his son, "I don't think you've really converted to Islam as much as you've found it within yourself; you sort of found your inner Muslim."

          Unbeknownst to his parents and the rest of the gullible Americans, this young impressionable teenager was gradually becoming brainwashed and indoctrinated into hating his own country. Time magazine quoted (PDF, 69 KB), a language teacher in Yemen who said, "Lindh came from the U.S. already hating America." The magazine writes: "Lindh's correspondence from Yemen evinces an ambivalence toward the U.S. In a letter to his mother dated Sept. 23, 1998, he refers to the bombing of he U.S. embassies in Africa the previous month, saying the attacks 'seem far more likely to have been carried out by the American government than by any Muslims.'"

          Non-Muslims are gradually becoming familiar with the Islamic tactic of committing the crime and blaming the victim. Well known is the fantastic story of 4000 Jews not showing up for work on the fateful morning of 9/11/2001, made up by some Muslims and conspiracy theory that they have invented to blame the CIA and the Mossad for what Bin Laden has so boastfully claimed as his victory. So this innocent boy was gradually led to believe that Islam is THE only real religion for all mankind, and he tried to learn it and practice it with sincerity and eagerness. He began studying and memorizing the Qur'an and in his notbook he wrote a passage that reads, "We shall make jihad as long as we live"342 By becoming a Muslim, John Walker Lindh had entered in Muhammad's narcissistic bubble universe. He was already showing the signs of irrational and narcissistic Islamic thinking. He perfectly knew who was responsible for 9/11 tragedy. On the one hand he denied that it was the work of Muslims and on the other hand he was vowing to make jihad as long as he lives.

          John alienated himself from the rest of his countrymen. According to the Qur'an, Muslims are not supposed to make friends with unbelievers. (Q.5:51, Q.9:23) They are asked to fight those who do not believe in Allâh (Q.9:29) and murder them. (Q.9:123) A Muslim is not allowed to accept another religion. (Q.3:85)

          It is no wonder that when John wrote back to his mother after the U.S. presidential election in 2000, he referred to George W. Bush as "your new President" and added, "I'm glad he's not mine." Of course not! A Muslim cannot accept the rule of unbelievers. He must disobey them (Q.25:52, therefore a "dialogue" senseless with devout Muslims), fight against them (9:29) and endeavor to kill them (Q.9:5, Muhammad was a treaty braker Q. 9:2.4).

Understanding Muhammad
          John Walker Lindh is one victim of the sickness of the Western society called political correctness. Wasn't it Ronald Reagan who called the Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan "freedom fighters?" John went on to become a freedom fighter. What is wrong with that? Didn't President George W. Bush and Tony Blair repeatedly announce, "Islam is a religion of peace?" Why jail a follower of the religion of peace who has simply followed the instructions of his religion of peace? The West is guilty — guilty of complicity, of appeasement and of self deception.

          As required summer reading for first-year students, Prof. Michael Sells of the University of North Carolina compiled a book called Approaching the Qur'an where only the "nice" teachings of the Qur'an pertaining to the early Meccan verses were handpicked and the violent, bloody verses that call for killing, looting and raping unbelievers, those that churn the stomach of any sane person that were written later in Medina were deliberately left out. This is nothing but playing the game of deception. The same deception is found in the books of Karen Armstrong and John Esposito in their definition of Islam. Young Americans are being lied so. A false image of Islam is being portrayed for their consumption by some western academicians, God knows for what reason. And when these kids believe in these lies they are fed, trust others judgments, and go on to practice Islam, we brand them as terrorists, jail them, and prosecute them. Isn't this hypocrisy? These children are not guilty. They are the products of our sick ethos called political correctness.

          How many newspapers, television or radio stations have the guts to call a spade a spade when it comes to Islam? Which one of our politicans has the mettle to stand in front of a camera and tell the nation that Islam is not a religion of peace? Watch your kids. If anyone dares to tell the truth, he is immediately branded as a racist and a hate-monger, and his head will roll. Meanwhile, Islamic propagandists are given freedom to twist the truth and promote their lies, knowing they will never be challenged on anything they say.

          CAIR, Council of American-Islamic Relations, (or better said "Conning Americans with Islamic Ruse") furnishes thousands of libraries across the country with Islamic books, hoping fo find more John Walker Lindhs. Mosques are being built in every city and town throughout the country to instill the hatred of America amongst the American kids. The situation is worse in Europe, Australia, Canada and other non-Muslim countries. According to a "secret report" (...)
