Myth of the ‘Moderate Muslim’

OP-ED by J. Matt Barber

“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” – The Quran, Surah 9:5

United States -(AmmoLand.com)- When it comes to the global scourge of orthodox Islam, the Western world, which Islamists expressly seek to “destroy from within,” is an upside-down realm wherein objective facts, logic and reason must yield to multiculturalist make-believe, “progressive” propaganda and political correctness run amok.

Faithful Muslims want to kill you, and faithless progressives seem all too happy to help them along. Look at the ongoing Muslim invasion of Europe. This progressive paradise, a burgeoning multicultural dystopia, is beginning to look an awful lot like hell on earth.

Fact: Islam is about control. The word itself means “submission.” It is a socio-political pseudo-religion based upon the incoherent scribblings of one man – the “prophet” Muhammad, a warring tyrant who, as even the Quran concedes, was a murderous misogynist and pedophile.

This unholy book is loosely plagiarized from the Bible's Old and New Testaments – Scriptures that, by contrast, were seamlessly transcribed over centuries by roughly 40 men under the direct and divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

Muhammad taught, and the Quran stresses, that a central tenet of Islam is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not Muslim or, depending on who's doing the killing, belongs to a different sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute category tagged “moderate Muslim” are also infidels. They're bad Muslims and so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all.

To be sure, “moderate Muslim” is a contradiction in terms. It is intrinsically oxymoronic. Whereas “moderate” (read: liberal) “Christians,” such as those belonging to the PCUSA, embrace certain apostasies that run directly counter to the biblical teachings of Christianity (e.g., the pagan embrace of homosexual sin and child sacrifice by way of abortion), “moderate Muslims” likewise embrace an apostate version of Islam that runs directly counter to the clear teachings of the Quran.

While devout followers of Jesus Christ, who is Life – God incarnate – are, like He, characteristically peaceful; devout followers of Muhammad, the dead, child-raping, woman-beheading founder of Islam – demon incarnate – are, like he, characteristically violent. Whereas “Muslim extremists,” that is, faithful Muslims, kill people extremely; “Christian extremists,” that is, faithful Christians, love people, including their enemies, extremely.

Islam explicitly requires a worldwide caliphate (global domination and the violent imposition of Islamic Shariah law). This fact is not open for serious debate and is available for all to read, hear, see and, tragically, experience. Islam, therefore, is inherently at odds with freedom, democracy and the United States Constitution. While devout followers of Muhammad readily admit this reality, the suicidal left yet remains hell-bent, head in the sand, on “tolerating” itself, and the rest of us, to death.

According to the Islamic watchdog group TheReligionofPeace.com – a fantastic resource for the unfiltered facts on Islam – “The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.”

The aim of these verses is to dehumanize all non-Muslims, making it easier for Muslims of every stripe to slaughter them with impunity when the time is right.

In addition to Surah 9:5, cited above, here are but a handful of Muhammad's bloody calls to arms:

  • “Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” – Quran (9:73)
  • “O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.” – Quran (9:123)
  • “And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.” – Quran (17:16)
  • “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves.” – Quran (48:29)

From the Hadith (sayings of Muhammad):

  • “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'” – Bukhari (52:177)
  • “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” – Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992
  • “Allah's Apostle said … ‘I have been made victorious with terror.'” – Bukhari (52:220)

“But the Bible says to kill unbelievers too!” cry the Muslim apologists. Nonsense. “Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence,” observes ReligionOfPeace.com, “the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text.” (Christian theologian Dr. Michael Brown has penned a brilliant contrast/comparison between the Quran and the Old Testament, which thoroughly debunks manipulative false equivalencies often drawn by those who wish to sow confusion.)

Still, we need only look to the many polls to affirm the alarmingly high percentages of Muslims (hundreds-of-millions in number) who seek, through the most violent means imaginable, Islamic world domination.

Again, here are but a few:

  • 83 percent of Palestinian Muslims, 62 percent of Jordanians and 61 percent of Egyptians approve of jihadist attacks on Americans. World Public Opinion Poll (2009).
  • 1.5 Million British Muslims support the Islamic State, about half their total population. ICM (Mirror) Poll 2015.
  • Two-thirds of Palestinians support the stabbing of Israeli civilians. Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research(2015).
  • 38.6 percent of Western Muslims believe 9/11 attacks were justified. Gallup (2011).
  • 45 percent of British Muslims agree that clerics preaching violence against the West represent “mainstream Islam.” BBC Radio (2015).
  • 38 percent of Muslim-Americans say Islamic State (ISIS) beliefs are Islamic or correct. (Forty-three percent disagree.) The Polling Company CSP Poll (2015).
  • One-third of British Muslim students support killing for Islam. Center for Social Cohesion (Wikileaks cable).
  • 78 percent of British Muslims support punishing the publishers of Muhammad cartoons. NOP Research.
  • 80 percent of young Dutch Muslims see nothing wrong with holy war against non-believers. Most verbalized support for pro-Islamic State fighters. Motivaction Survey (2014).
  • Nearly one-third of Muslim-Americans agree that violence against those who insult Muhammad or the Quran is acceptable. The Polling Company CSP Poll (2015).
  • 68 percent of British Muslims support the arrest and prosecution of anyone who insults Islam. NOP Research.
  • 51 percent of Muslim-Americans say that Muslims should have the choice of being judged by Shariah courts rather than courts of the United States (only 39 percent disagree).The Polling Company CSP Poll (2015).
  • 81 percent of Muslim respondents support the Islamic State (ISIS). Al-Jazeera poll (2015).

Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster and the moderate Muslim: Even as we hear of the occasional sighting, most reasonable people remain skeptical as to whether, in reality, these mysterious creatures even exist.

Perhaps not the best venue for these comments, but Christian gun owners and constitutionalists need a way to express their concerns; there is a first amendment, after all. Get over your self-inflicted offenses and speak the truth in whatever forum is available.

To those who do not think that the expansion of the Mohammedans is not a political issue ..The “Left” and the Mohammedans both believe that the “People” belong to the government ( whether it be the Socialist State or the Caliphate ) and both ( believing that there are no “inherent rights” in the People ) require submission to an Elite …and the Second and Ninth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution are the main impediments to a “One World ” or “Caliphate ” run humanity …which makes the advance of Mohammedanism a direct threat to the Second and Ninth Amendments… Read more »

Dear Readers……..38.6% of western muslims believe the 9/11 attacks were justified and some of you have the audacity to accept that number, because 61.4% don’t. (Or so they say) That to me that is unbelievable, almost 4 out of 10 muslims say its OK to kill Americans and you accept that number, because its not 6 out of 10….Wow. and you say its the article that brings out haters? I wouldnt say its hate that it brings out. I would say its an alarm going off, its an alarming number and I would say get prepared, don’t hate, defend yourselves… Read more »

I agree with Sgar504, Ammoland needs to start taking a far more strict stance on what’s appropriate here.

In reference to the many problems he was having from invading Muslims Pope Innocent the III had it right for his times and reign 1198-1216 He finally proclamed–“Kill them all and let God sort them out.” This time will be coming again as the seeds of this disaster have been planted with the many so-called immigrants (young men of military age) and more are coming–has nearly destroyed liberal European countries and Norway and especially the once beautiful country of Sweden.. Regardless of their problem-their religion of death and oppression (according to the Quran) Kouran to the rest of us, rules:… Read more »

Awesome job bringing out the haters, Mr. Barber. Because that’s the aim of this op-ed, right? A few points: If 38.6 percent of Western Muslims believe 9/11 attacks were justified, you realize that means 61.4% don’t (or have no opinion). Maybe they aren’t “moderate,” but perhaps they are not a threat to us. Does the name Nazir Al-Mujaahid mean anything to you? Here: https://www.ammoland.com/2012/06/wisconsins-first-ccw-self-defense-case/#axzz3wNpK6rw3 How about Sirraj Abdel-Alim? Oh, look, a front page Ammoland profile on him: https://www.ammoland.com/2016/01/national-african-american-gun-association-member-of-the-month-sirraj-abdel-alim/#axzz3wNpm4SOh We (gun owners, Christians, conservatives) are sick of being painted as xenophobic haters by people who read the Holy Scriptures and pick… Read more »

What’s the difference between a radical muslim and a moderate muslim? A radical muslim will saw you infidel head off. A moderate will merely cheer when the radical saws your infidel head off.
