to our feet and eternity to our arms.

On Wednesday, March 25, 2015, the Toronto Star, in its article Anti-Islam group on rise in Quebec1 notes one of the launchers of the group as saying: ““The incompatibility of Islam with the West is flagrant and that’s the reason that PEGIDA and the Western patriots are rising up. It’s not just to counter Islam but to say that if Islam doesn’t reform itself, Islam needs to get out of the West.”” According to the article the name “PEGIDA” is a “German acronym for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West”. The article carries a picture of anti-Islam demonstrators with crosses (symbolizing Christianity).
(1) Demonstrators with crosses: (Unless these demonstrators are Jews) Jesus Christ’s mission, as he declared, was wholly and solely to his people, Jews –to the lost sheep of the House of Israel and he prayed only for them he prayed not for the world. Jesus regarded non-Jews –the White, Black, Brown, Yellow and Red– as “dogs” and “swine” and he preached in parables so these metaphorical dogs and swine would not understand and be converted and saved (the real dogs and swine are the ones running around on four legs going arf! arf! and oink! oink!) (See Jesus-only for Jews). It is a monumentally strange thing for God or son of God to label non-Jews “dogs” and “swine” and preach in parables so they will not be saved when he is supposed to have come to die for the sins of the world so man can have “everlasting life.”
That the human “Cross”/Christianity is superior to the Divine “Crescent”/Islam is a colossal delusion. No religion can be shown to be superior to, or equal with, Islam. Most of all Christianity. Even Hinduism is superior to Christianity.2 (See Islam superior to other religions; Jesus or Mohammad-best system; Christianity-lies, evil, hate; Christianity-a fake).
Trinity, inherited sin and vicarious atonement are NOT Divine doctrines; these doctrines are assumed and propagated as Divine truths. Trinity was invented by the Church/Christians three hundred years after Jesus Christ; and inherited sin and vicarious atonement were devised by St.(?) Paul. Jesus Christ was a Muslim and he observed and taught Islam. (See Jesus-trinity; Jesus-inherited sin to ascension; Allah and Jesus or Paul; Jesus-a Muslim taught Islam). Whereas David was a material king the Church, using ancient mythology and conjecture, wrapped Jesus in the robe of spiritual kingship. (See Jesus-like David).
Jesus clearly taught that Heaven lies in following the Mosaic law –The Ten Commandments– until the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide for ever;” and this Comforter is the Prophet Mohammad (see Jesus-Comforter). Blind faith is no passport to Paradise: Reason is the door to God! Human assumptions and conjectures lead to Hell. Heaven lies in following clearly expressed Divine doctrines.
Moreover, contrary to Christian’s claim, Jesus was no “prince of peace.” Instead of “peace” Jesus, as he declared, sent “fire,” “sword” and “division” on earth and he counseled murder and deceit/lying. And considering that Christians say Jesus is God, Jesus was complicit in the bloodiest episodes in Scriptural history –he was a “man of war.”
Jesus who regards people as “dogs” and “swine” and preached in parables to shut them out from heaven and who sent “fire,” “sword” and “division” on earth could hardly be crowned “Prince of peace’ and “King of kings.” (See Jesus-prince of peace; Islam-and lying; Jesus and Mohammad-cures & war). (Please note this is the Christians Jesus. For the Muslims Jesus read the Qur’an).
(2) Islamization of the West: Doesn’t the Church/Christians want to “Christianize” the East (and the world)? There are some one million Christian missionaries plying the plains of the earth to have the uneducated and unthinking swallow the mythical blood and body of Jesus Christ –spiritual cannibalism– and to sit in the pew of paganism. Muslims/Islam Islamizing the “West” would be doing the “West” the invaluable service of bringing her into Divine truth and seating her in the garden of Paradise. (See Christianity-a fake; Christianity-lies, evil, hate; Heaven or Paradise; Hell).
Moreover, whereas Islam advocated material progress, Christianity is an enemy to material knowledge. Had the “West” not toss the Bible aside and think along Islamic lines the “West” would yet be groping in the black-hole of Christian backwardness. (See Christianity-enemy to knowledge; Jesus-absurd doctrines).
(3) “The incompatibility of Islam with the West”. Islam gave democracy to the world while the “West” was yet running around with flint tools and torches: (See Islam; Islam & Democracy). Contrary to Muslim practices there is no honor killing, no death for adultery, apostasy, blasphemy and homosexuality –these are the Judaic and Christian laws. (See Islam-honor killing; Islam-adultery & flogging; Islam-apostasy; Islam-blasphemy, Islam–homosexuals & lesbians).
And there is no discrimination against women; Islam gave women rights alongside man from the cradle all the way to Jannah, whereas twentieth-century “Western” women were yet burning their brassieres for equality with their male chauvinist pigs. Misogyny is the Jewish and Christian woman’s inheritance. (See Islam-women; Christianity-Women). Christians may not be observing these laws of the Bible, but their Scripture/God demands it; and heaven lies in following Scripture/God.
However, “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” is correct that Islam is ‘incompatible” with the “West.” Whereas Islam requires peace, justice, and non-aggression/non-transgression; chastity and sobriety, the “West” engages in war and aggression and injustice –stole Muslim Palestine and gave it to Jews; invaded Iraq (twice) and Grenada (and even Libya); and overthrew some fourteen foreign governments including that of Iran, Hawaii, Chile, etc; to protect her “interest” (to live like parasites)– and is pregnant with drunkenness, gambling and promiscuity (and Jesus says even lusting after a woman is adultery–Matthew 5:28). Acts and conditions which not even many “Westerners” engage in, but avoid and oppose.
There is no religion more peaceful than Islam. Islam advocates peace even in the face of possible deception by the enemy:: “And if they incline to peace, incline thou also to it….And if they intend to deceive, then surely Allah is sufficient for thee;” “So if they withdraw from you and fight you not and offer you peace, then Allah allows you no way against them”–(Qur’an 8:61-62; 4:90). Islam is the “abode of peace.” (See Islam-Religion of sword; Qur’an-evil verses).
(4) That “if Islam doesn’t reform itself, Islam needs to get out of the West.” Islam teaches:
–fulfilling covenants, keeping of oaths and not to be deceptive (Qur’an 16:91-92); to speak justly (6:153); to be righteous (2:277-278; 6:152-154); to not let hatred for a people incite you to transgress (5:2); to render back trusts to whom they are due, and to judge justly (4:58); because Allah God loves those who judge in equity (5:45-47)
–not to deal unjustly with men (2:279, 5:8); and not to rob them of their dues (26:183); to give justice even if it be against one’s self or parents or kins or whether he be poor or rich (4:135), to feed the needy and the poor, to free the captives, to help those in debt, to care for the orphans, the wayfarer, and to free the slaves (9:60, 2:177), not to act corruptly in the earth or to make mischief (26:183); not to be transgressors (2:190), not to help one another in sin and aggression (5:2), to restrain our anger and forgive others (3:133), to fight on behalf of the oppressed (4:75; 22:39-40); because Allah God loves those who are just, and because He commands justice and the doing of good, and He forbids injustice (60:8, 16:90)
–not to help or counsel one another in sin, but in goodness (5:2; 60:8-9); not to take a greater recompense than the injury suffered (2:194; 16:126; 42:40); that instead of retaliation, to make reconciliation, and to show patience and forgiveness (16:126; 42:39-43); to be merciful and forgiving (3:133); to fight only as long as there is persecution/oppression (2:193), and to make peace when the enemy desires peace (4:90, 8:61); because Allah God loves the doer of good, and the dutiful (2:195, 3:75)
–all men are created equal (95:4), that we are made into different tribes and nations that we may know one another (49:13), that we are to be judged not by our race, color or nationality but by our deeds (6:133), that the noblest ones are those who are righteous (49:13, 98:7), to return evil with that which is better (23:96), to give justice (4:58; 5:8); because Allah God loves those who judge in equity, and because Allah God is aware of what you do (5:45, 4:135)
–condemns compulsion, aggression, oppression, persecution and exploitation (2:256; 32:20; 2:193; 42:426:153; 26:181-184; 83:1-4)
–promotes peace (8:61), love (60:7-8); patience (23:111), tolerance (24:22; 45:14), and justice for all regardless of race, color or creed (4:135; 7:29; 16:90)
–advocates that all, regardless of race, nationality or color are equal, and that one is better than the other only through righteousness (49:13);
–to fight on behalf of the oppressed (4:75); and for religious freedom, for all (8:39; 22:40).
–allows freedom of religion (2:256; 6:105-109; 9:107-108; 10:88-100; 18:29; 42:15; 50:45; 76:3; 109:1-6); freedom of movement, thought, and expression (4:140; 6:68, 108; 29:52); the pursuit of knowledge, and the acquisition of wealth and property–(2:274-275, 276-282; 35:12; 53:48; 62:10);
–to choose only those worthy of power and to exercise justice–(4:58); to govern by consultation/counsel.–(3:158; 4:58; 42:38).
–to avoid illicit relations (17:32); to establish regular prayer, because prayer keeps one from indecency and evil (29:45);
–that both man and woman were created from the same medium (4:1), and are to be life partners (25:54; 16:72; 24:32); with love and compassion between them–(7:189; 30:21)
–Woman has like rights with those of man –the same is due to her as is due from her (2:228). She is a garment of man as he is her garment (to cover, protect, beautify, and comfort (2:187); and is “a fountain of love and affection”–(30:21); and his friend/ protector–(9:71)
–women can earn, and can inherit and own property (4:32, 7, 177); she has exclusive right to utilize her earnings however she pleases (4:4, 32); she is to be honored (4:1) and that she and man are inheritors of Paradise:
-“Surely the owners of the Garden are on that day in a happy occupation. They and their wives are in shades, reclining on raised couches”–(Qur’an 36:56)
-“Enter the garden, you and your wives being made happy”–(Qur’an 43:70;
-“And those who believe and whose off-spring follow them in faith –We unite them with their offspring and We shall deprive them of naught of their work. Every man is pledged for his work”–Qur’an 52:21)
-“And whoever does good deeds, whether male or FEMALE, and he (or she) is a believer –these will enter the Garden, and they will NOT be dealt with a whit unjustly”–Qur’an 4:124; 16:97)
-“Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women, and the humble men and the humble women, and the almsgiving men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember –Allah has prepared for THEM FORGIVENESS AND A MIGHTY REWARD” –(Qur’an 33:35).
So which of the above teachings of Islam “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” want Islam to reform? (See Islam-needs reforming). It is not Islam that needs to be reformed; it is the “West” that needs to “reform” to the universal value-system of Islam.
In the cases of “jihadists” attacks on civilians. Are parents to be blamed if their children transgressed their precepts? Would “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” blame Jesus Christ for the Christian priests “sexual abuse” of children? (The Internet lists names of priests guilty of sodomy and other forms of sexual abuse of children). Did “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” rise up and demonstrate against Christianity? Did “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” demand that Christianity change or get out of the “East”? (It can be claimed that though these “sexual abuses” were committed against Christian children, there would be the possibility of non-Christian children also be victimized).
(Referring to Muslims who attack civilians as “jihadists” is a betrayal of ignorance of what Jihad is. Jihad means to "strive” or exert one’s self in the way of freedom, truth, and justice; and there are several forms of Jihad. (See Islam-Jihad & Jihad Watch). Thus, in referring to such Muslims as Jihadists, these individuals are honoring killers of innocent people as “strivers” for justice. The same applies to the labeling of Muslims who kill innocents as “Islamists.” And Islam means peace and submission to the will of Allāh God–see Islam).
Islam is not to be cited if Muslims transgress its borders. However, The reported reason given for these attacks (or intended attacks) is retaliation for the injustice committed against Muslims. There are many instances of injustice against Muslims
-America (the “West” and Christian) stole Palestine through diplomatic thuggery at the UN/League of Nations and gave it to Jews and for more than six torturous decades are helping Jews in this monumental and grotesque obscenity against the fearless and forbearing Palestinians;
-America and Britain (the “West” and Christian) overthrew Iran’s Mossadegh government in 1953;
-Britain and France (the “West” and Christian) and so-called “Israel” attacked Egypt because Egypt nationalized its own Suez Canal;
-America (the “West” and Christian) invaded Iraq twice killing hundreds of thousands (to have Muslim oil);
-America (the “West” and Christian) is flying thousands of miles to Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan to pre-empt “terrorism” on her land and killing hundreds of innocent in the process.
Would “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” (or any other) accept “Islam”/Muslims committing such evils against them? Decidedly not! How then can “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” (or any other) expects Muslims to accept such abominations against us?
While there is no terrorism in Islam and this is not to support terrorism, instead of rabble-rousing and demonstrating against Islam “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” are to demonstrate against those who commit (are committing) injustice against Islam/Muslims. There will peace only when one gives to others the right(s) he exacts for himself. This is the civilized, the intelligent and the democratic approach.
(Consider the billions that are vainly blown battling terrorism –and the enacting of tyrannical laws that curtail freedom and subject citizens and their children and future children to being subjects of a police-state– that could be usefully spent combating global warming and feeding the hungry and homeless and other misfortunate in one’s own land and abroad).
And on the theological front. God requires followers to govern by reason–(Isaiah 1:18) and Jesus urged his people to know the truth which will make them free from falsehood–(John 8:32). If “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” wants to have that “mansion” Jesus was not certain “if” he would go and prepare,3 then, rather than dwell in blind faith “PEGIDA and the Western patriots” has no alternative but to apply reason and seek truth which will reveal to them that the Divine truth is, Jesus was a messenger of God sent only to Jews and “There is no God but Allāh, Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh.”
Allāh loves us.
Allāh wants to guide us.
Allāh wants us to be pure.
Allāh wants us to have a life in Paradise.
Islam is our
PASSPORT TO PARADISE

2. Hinduism superior to Christianity. Whereas both Hinduism and Christianity desecrate Godhood –putting God into the belly of woman and bringing Him out her vagina: and thus making woman “Mother of God” and God son of a woman He created (which is blasphemy of the highest order, and making Adam and Eve cleaner than God as they were not subjected to the unclean process of childbirth–Job 4:17; 25:4)– the Hindu doctrine of Karma –to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction– only renders God devoid of mercy and forgiveness, as He has no choice but to punish every evil (an equal and opposite reaction), whereas the Christian doctrine of inherited sin –that God puts Adam’s sin onto very person– attributes injustice to God (which is blasphemy); and the doctrine of vicarious atonement –that God sent Jesus, an innocent man, to be scapegoat to die for everyone’s “inherited sin”– attributes more injustice to God and makes Him complicit in murder; and even murder of an innocent man (which is blasphemy). (See Jesus-as God).
