ISLAMIC DILEMMA: Radical, Insane, Misunderstander Or Good Muslim?

Written by Audrey Russo on September 10, 2014

Before 9-11, few people had Islam on their radar. But on Sept. 11, 2001, the hub of the free world was introduced to the full force of Muhammed’s ideology in a Knockout game punch…that has done brain damage to some in the West…because, after 13 years, they still can’t tell the truth from the lies…

The chorus sung by the ignorant and the deceiver alike, has been off key to the point of discordance…causing great confusion.

Here is the cause of the confusion:
–More often than not, when these Muslim Jihadists commit terrorist acts…we are told by politicians and so-called moderate Muslims that the person is either a Radical, a Misunderstander of Islam or (more recently with the UK beheading case in Edmonton of an 82 yr old woman) insane.
–Then we have those who have actually LIVED under the draconian dictates of Islam (i.e. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Noni Darwish, Walid Shoebat, Reza Kahlili, IQ al Rassooli, etc.) and researchers/scholars (i.e. Robert Spencer, Raymond Ibrahim, M. A. Khan, Pamela Geller, Dr. Peter Hammond, Brother Rachid, etc.) say that the barbaric acts are all in keeping with the Quran and the ahadith/sunnah (traditions & sayings of Muhammed)…making these perps, good Muslims.

Then who’s correct?

A cursory look at the empirical evidence will answer the question for anyone who TRULY wants to know…
–The term “Radical” is defined as: of or going to the root or origin; fundamental. If these Muslims are “radical”, that would make them devout: devoted to divine worship or service; pious; religious. Or, in layman’s terms for a follower of Islam: A good Muslim.
–The Quranic doctrine of abrogation is the belief that when two verses are contradictory, the one that is revealed later chronologically abrogates or cancels out the earlier one and is at least similar or superior to the earlier one. Verses of abrogation: Sura 2:106 & Sura 16:101. This destroys the claim of “moderate” Muslims that those who commit terror are “misunderstanders” of Islam.
–All of the groups committing Islamic terror attacks (ISIS, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, al Shabaab, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc.) have claimed verses from the Quran as the basis of their actions. Since 9-11, almost 24,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks have occurred globally.
–“Moderate” Muslims, who constitute the majority of Muslims worldwide…are not protesting in the streets against these barbarians because: 1) they fear being murdered by their brethren, or 2) like the Godfather, they never go against the family, or 3) they say that Islam was “hijacked”, employing the doctrine of Taqiyya (lying for the sake of Islam).

When anyone takes a moment to look at the terms being thrown around by the media and politicos, you don’t have to be a genius to realize that although the acts of these radical or devout followers are insane to the Judeo-Christian world…they are in keeping with the true dictates of the teachings of Muhammed.

The choice is yours. You can believe the Media/Politicians OR the bloody facts, piling up daily, of the innocent victims.

Funny, though…if you lived under Islam: You wouldn’t HAVE a choice of what to believe.

Shalom through strength…
