The existence of Islamic terrorism (jihad) isn’t due to American foreign policy — but rather Koranic dogma. And the sooner we come to terms with this fact, the safer (and wiser) we will be.
Those among us who ardently cling to the belief that such actions as rendition, waterboarding, drone attacks, Gitmo and a close kinship with Israel have created jihad in the Muslim World (MW) have their heads way up their tailpipes.
The great disdain and hatred displayed daily in the MW for America is the direct result of Islamic teachings and tenets that have been in existence since the 7th century. Teachings which unabashedly proclaim that Islam will one day reign supreme once “Dar al Harb” [house of war/ infidels] has been violently subjugated and, or annihilated.
These odious teaching are based on the following Koranic verses:
“The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weapons you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”– (Koran 8:59)
“Fight them [infidels] until Islam reigns supreme.” — (Koran 2:193)
“Cut off their [infidels’] heads, and cut off the tips of their fingers.” — (Koran 8:12)
History explicitly indicates that these teachings were in full throttle long before America ever arrived on the scene. In fact — over the course of the last 1400 years — approximately 270 million “infidels” have been violently eradicated by Islamic terrorists.
Terrorists, by the way that publicly recited the aforementioned verses while beheading, raping and pillaging “Dar al Harb.”
It was the MW back in 1453 (some three centuries before our nation was founded) that waged jihad on the very epicenter of Christendom — Constantinople. In that conflict — which was prosecuted so “Islam reigns supreme”– over 4, 0000 Christians were killed to the shrill chant of “Allah Akbar.”
(Constantinople is now the largest city in Turkey — Istanbul.)
This is but a mere snapshot of the unremitting virulence, mayhem and barbarity that Islam proliferated (via jihad) long before our nation was ever forged.
So, to those among us who think America’s actions have created Islamic terrorism (and the acrimony and hatred that motivates it) — history has only one thing to say to them: IT’S ISLAM, STUPID!
