Yet, in order to make people hate someone so intensely you must make them believe that they are also being victimized. They must feel that they are being robbed and abused. Of course, when it comes to this, the West’s record is not entirely unblemished. The legacy of European, and especially British colonialism has never really ended, although in this day and age it remains in a much more subtle form, as it takes place principally behind closed doors. When the Western countries support the dictatorial regimes and benefit by making lucrative deals with these oppressive governments from which the average khalid and Hassan in the Islamic countries do not benefit, they see the West as their number one enemy and themselves as its victims. Islamic Mullahs in turn harvest the full benefit from this general animus, using verses from the Quran to marshal the anger and frustration of these disgruntled masses, with the clear intent of inciting them to unbelievable acts of violence.


The Quran is a textbook of hate. Views expressed in the Quran, if uttered today by anyone, would be considered an offence and the perpetrator would be charged, fined or imprisoned under the anti-hate act laws. How can a Muslim love the Jews and the pagans when his holy book tells him “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans” 5.82. How can he love the Christians when that same book which he believes to be the unaltered word of God tells him that the Christians are guilty of breaking the covenant of God and God has “estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment" 5.14. How can you love someone when your God says he is najis (impure)?  9:28


Your orders are not to love them but to “Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah” 2:193. God does not love the unbelievers, why should you? They are called hypocrites. He said that “their abode is Hell” and that Muslims should “strive hard against them” 9.73. The God of Quran says “take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love Infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong." 9:23 Muslims are not to befriend the unbelievers. 3:28. They should not obey them but “strive against them herewith with a great endeavor 25:52. They should "fight those who believe not in Allah...and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, (Christians and Jews) until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 9:29,


These are among the many hate-mongering messages that the Mullahs recite in the loudspeakers from their pulpits, rousing the believers to “instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them"  8:12


The fact that Muslims are no match for the military might of the West does not deter them. Muhammad gave the believers the assurance that despite their lack of means and the strength of the enemy they will be victorious. Muhammad makes his Allah tell him “O Prophet! rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers" 8:65  And promise “And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers”  4:141, 


With this assurance, a Muslim does not have to look into his weaknesses, but can instead rely on Allah's assistance and set off for his jihad. If he dies, he is still a winner because God has reserved for him “gardens and bliss” 52:17, to “eat and drink pleasantly” 52:19 “recline on thrones set in lines” and more importantly “unite to large-eyed beautiful ones” 52:20. Why fear death when God has promised those who die in his cause “with fruit and flesh such as they desire”? 52:22


But this is not all the reward a martyr would reap. He will be also glorified by his people. His posters will decorate the shops and walls of his city. His portrait will appear in large murals. He will come out of anonymity. Therefore if in life he was a nobody, in death he can become a somebody, a hero, and a martyr. His peers will remember him. The whole town will come to congratulate his family for the blessing that Allah has given them. All these glories and rewards in exchange for a squalid miserable life in this world. Who can refuse such a bargain?


However, it would be a mistake to believe that just the poor are driven to this level of insanity. The intensity of hate, the lure of paradise and the exhilaration of fame are enough to drive even the wealthy kids to terrorism. As a matter of fact this induced hate matched with those promises of the afterlife, can tempt even a child born and raised in a non-Muslim world to a non-Muslim family to become a terrorist and kill his own people, including his own family members with no pang of conscience.
