When muslim leaders in America discuss peace, and how peaceful Islam is, it launches many Americans into a swirl of cognitive dissonance.
Why? Because those who follow Islam tell us Islam means “peace,” that Islam is a “peaceful religion,” and often personally exhibit peaceful characteristics.
Yet, the objective truth about “Allah’s divine law”/sharia – Islam’s doctrine – breeds hostile, even savage characteristics in muslims.
Your muslim neighbor or co-worker may exhibit warm, friendly behavior, yet one day erupt in violence while screaming “Allahu Akbar.”
We’ve seen it happen over and over again.
For example, in December 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a muslim couple in San Bernardino, California described as “friendly” and “quiet” by their co-workers, screamed “Allah u Akbar” and killed 14 co-workers and wounded 22 others, not long after they had been given a baby shower by some of their victims.
Another example from Moore, Oklahoma is the case Alton Nolen, a convert to Islam, who changed his name to Jah’Keem Yisrael. After converting to Islam Jah’Keem invited other co-workers to convert as well after he began studying Islam in a local mosque. In September 2014, Jah’Keem had an argument with and then beheaded a female with whom he worked named Colleen Hufford. Jah’Keem beheaded Hufford with a 10-inch knife while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” He attempted to behead others until he was wounded by the Chief Operations Manager who happened to be a reserve Sheriff’s deputy.
Traci Johnson, one of the other victims stabbed by Jah’Keem, publicly said, “Mr. Nolen, I don’t understand why you did what you did to me and Colleen and the other gentlemen, but that was wrong and you know it was.”
Did Jah’Keem Yisrael know what he did what wrong? He told investigators and the court he did what he did because he is a muslim who obeys the Koran, and, therefore, what he did was lawful and obligatory in Islam.
Why the contradictions between muslims telling others Islam is a religion of peace and behaving in ways that portray they are peaceful, and then doing something which reveals they are actually hostile towards the non-muslim world?
Is it because many people do not understand Islam?
Americans’ understanding of “Peace” is not the same as sharia-adherent muslims’ understanding of peace based on what Islam teaches about peace.
Many Americans think of peace as being friendly, getting along with others, adopting the ideas of “live and let live” or “do your own thing as long as it doesn’t bother me.” Some believe peace is merely an absence of violence.
In Islam, “peace” is radically different.
What is Islam? Islam means submission. What is Sharia? Sharia is a legal system muslims are obligated by Allah to impose upon all humanity.
What is a Muslim? A muslim is one who submits to and obeys “Allah’s divine law”/Sharia.
“Allah’s divine law”/sharia is derived from the Koran and the sunnah – the example of Islam’s “perfect man” Mohammad. Therefore, Mohammed serves as a perfect example of the way Allah commands the whole world to live.
Mohammad told muslims they must fight the non-muslims until they testify there is no god but Allah.
In Islam, according to sharia, the entire world is divided into two categories – the Dar al-Islam (house of Islam) where sharia is the law of the land, and the Dar al-Harb (house of war) which is the rest of the world living outside sharia.
The purpose of Islam is to eliminate the “House of War” until the entire world is under the “House of Islam” ruled by sharia, and then there will be PEACE. The means to do this is called warfare or jihad.
Jihad is not one of the five pillars in Islam because once there is “peace” in Islam, there is no more need for jihad. However, jihad is at the core of Islam because it brings about Islam’s objective – sharia imposed on the world, which is “peace.”
Therefore, “Peace” in Islam can only be achieved by waging war against the non-muslim world until every human being converts to Islam or, in the case of Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians, converts to Islam or submits to sharia and pays the non-muslim poll tax.
This is directly contrary to Western ideals of true peace, human decency, dignity of the human person, liberty, and violates American founding principles, the U.S. Constitution and federal laws, just for starters.
This is the Islamic understanding of peace. Keep it in mind the next time you hear muslim leaders telling your pastor, a Congressman, your police chief, your mayor, or the FBI Director they want to help achieve “peace” in the community.
Since the days of Mohammed, the muslim world has waged war (Jihad) against non-Muslims. Jihad continues today and is increasing. Because the goal of Islam is to bring the whole world under sharia, Imams in mosques across the United States teach sharia and all its legal requirements, including Jihad to achieve “peace.”
In the words of Jesus, “Yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service (John 16:2).”
Remember when muslims speak, we must translate English to English through the filter of sharia. To do that you must know and understand sharia.
