Debate of the Week 10: Religion of Peace
This one is going to hurt my chances of ever becoming President, and yet, I do not care.
Here’s my stance:
Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a religion of war, always has been, always will be.
When Mohammed founded Islam he was an exile from his native Mecca, supposedly for being laughed out as a heretic, or driven out as criminal. Either way, he was a brigand who not only robbed caravans on a regular basis, he also wrote about the pleasures of plunder in the Koran. While he was away he used religion to raise an army of holy warriors to return to Mecca and conquer it, which he succeeded in doing. From that point forward he waged Jihad, which in literal terms means “struggle”, but in practical terms has always meant war, against any city he thought he could conquer. Every place he conquered he gave the people two choices: convert to Islam, or die. This pattern continues to this day as is evidenced by the Jihadists and Terrorists worldwide, as well as local oppression within otherwise officially peaceful nations like Saudi Arabia, where every Friday they have a public execution of Christians, and the occasional Jew. Forty-nine out of fifty terrorist worldwide are Muslims. The most violent nations o\in the world today are ones with large Muslim populations. Religion of peace my butt!
I am convinced the antichrist will be a Muslim man. I think this because his birthplace is supposed to be somewhere in northern Iraq, or just north of Iraq. Also, the antichrist will behead every Christian he finds, and the only people beheading people these days are Muslims.
The Muslims claim to be descended from Ishmael. Ishmael is Abraham’s firstborn son to his slave girl Haggar. He was not the child of the promise, but God did give him a blessing where it was declared that his descendents would be “as a baying ass” and would “be a scourge unto their brothers”. Theologically speaking those brothers would be the Jews, whom the actively persecute at all turns, as was demanded by Mohammed himself. In my opinion, any religion or philosophy that demands the eradication of the Jews is pure Hellspawn. Frankly, all the persecution that the Jews have suffered throughout history is proof positive that they are the ones the Lord has blessed and chosen to bless the world. The devil hates all that God favors. The fact that the world will try to wipe out Israel in the last days is further evidence that Islam is likely to be heavily involved.
