he Muslims do not succeed in shutting it down again. It is hardly
surprising that they try to gag you. Reading their comments it is
clear that they are unable to refute your arguments. In fact they
merely confirm them. Their minds are in a cage that Arabia's
"messenger of God" built for them 1400 years ago. I
marvel that you have managed to free yourself from its confines. I
wonder, if I had been brought up a Muslim, whether I would have
been able to do so. I am not confident that I would. Islam has got
o be about the most effective self-perpetuating brainwashing
programme ever devised. I pity those who have been subjected to it
from birth. I have less pity for those who have willingly
submitted themselves to Islamic mind control. They have thrown
away something precious.
I hope this mail reaches the right person.
I just got to read your article on Islam. Was that wonderful

I looked at your site today - not in great detail but I will do
and I read that you said that some angr Muslims email you saying
you should take down your site. Well I just wanted to say
he opposite - I just wanted to say that out there you do have
supporters like me. I am Indian and my religion is
Hindu/Sikh. I don't know if you know but we people have had
o deal with the inequity and barbarity of Muslims outselves for
many years. I studied Islam because Muslim friends at school
said that the Quran is the word of God and that it has scientific
facts in it that couldn't have come from Muhammed. Well, I
read about these so called and I can see why an ignorant,
illiterate, savage would think yeah this is true, it must be from
God. Many such people never bother to look into the
scientific mistakes in the Quran. Im glad though that there
are people that are willing to think for themselves.
I have a fear that one day America and perhaps Britain also (where
I live) will one day have enclves where Muslims want to break
away. They may one day try to do this you never know - if
hey grow big enough they may try to do this. I hope I'm
just being silly but it happened in India with the formation of
Pakistan. I know it's a different situation but you can
never tell with them.
Any way thats enough of my nonesense :-)
Ali...thank you for your bravery, knowledge, research, talent for
written expression, and for the education we all need.
hink your site is very good. It can open the narrow mind of most
is populated with almost 200 million muslims. I think you will be
a great help if you can "touch" them.
should have an Indonesian language for your site. If you want, I
may try to find volunteers to do that.
can do that, but very limitedly. You see, I am an employee. But if
I translate a little and a thousand more people translate a
little, I think you could soon have it.
we, Indonesians, can refer those muslims to read a thorough
explanation in Indonesian language. You see, most of Indonesians
do not speak English, at least they avoid reading things in
ell me what you think.
is an example I make for your "A CHALLENGE" part. I made
good translation for that. (I used to be an English teacher in the
best English Language Center in Indonesia for 10 years.) I hope
you are interested.
Saya menerima banyak e-mail dari umat Islam yg marah yg minta saya
menghapus situs ini. Kalau anda menentang situs ini dan ingin saya
menghapusnya, saya undang anda untuk menolak tuduhan saya thdp
Muhammad & Islam. Kalau anda dapat menunjukkan bahwa yang saya
katakan tidak berdasar, saya berjanji akan menghapus situs ini
setelah sebelumnya mengakui bahwa saya salah dan bahwa Islam
adalah agama yg benar.
Sejauh ini, sedikit muslim yg berani menjawab tantangan ini.
Berikut adalah diskusi-diskusi kami. Kelihatannya mereka gagal
membuktikan bhw saya salah. Anda bisa? Anda tahu ada ahli Islam
yang mungkin bisa ? Kalau kamu tidak bisa membuktikan bahwa yang
saya katakan tentang Muhammad itu salah, kenapa anda masih tetap
menjadi Islam ? Kenapa anda memaksakan untuk mengikuti doktrin yg
salah? Tidakkah anda berpikir bhw kekacauan yg terjadi di dunia
islam adalah karena mengikuti doktrin yg primitif dan salah?
Mohon jangan menulis penolakan sebelum baca keseluruhan artikel di
situs ini. Itu sama saja dengan bunuh diri. Kalau anda menulis
pada saya: “Oh anda salah. Islam adalah agama damai.” Anda
sudah keluar konteks. Juga jangan ada ucapan klise serupa. Setiap
hari saya terima sekitar 10 e-mail spt ini, dan saya bosan
membacanya. Jangan kirimi saya URLnya situs Islam dan meminta saya
membacanya, seolah-olah akan ada hal baru yg belum saya ketahui di
sana. Saya sudah membaca seluruhnya, dan mereka menghasilkan
omong-kosong yang sama saja dan sudah saya jawab semuanya. Saya
sudah membuktikan bahwa Quran itu salah dan tidak perlu
membuktikan kesalahan ribuan situs Islam pembenaran Quran. Kalau
Quran dianggap keajaiban terbesar Islam, jangan pula meminta
saya membuktikan kesalahan interpretasi dari pengikut Quran.
Santai saja dahulu, telaah pembuktian saya tentang kesalahan Quran
serta pandangan saya tentang anggapan keajaiban Quran atau
klaim bahwa itu ilmiah. Surati saya HANYA setelah anda baca
beberapa artikel yang saya taruh di situs ini. Hampir semua (kalau
idak seluruhnya) argumen anda sudah terjawab di situ.
Cara terbaik untuk mengalahkan musuh adalah dengan mengerti dia
dan mempelajari kelemahannya. Jadi, bacalah dengan seksama.

Just quickly as you have your work cut out
for you, ell done.
We must fight these atrocities with the power
of words and knowledge, as your website depicts and not with
suppression and eradication of other humans and their beliefs.
Dec. 01, 2001
Besides growing up in a traditionally Baptist
family, I've always been agnostic and been skeptical about
religion and one of the main reasons was because, despite the
proclamations of religion (usually a certain kind depending on who
you talk to) being good, it was always being used to commit
atrocities against people throughout history. The story of
Ham in the Bible justified the slavery of blacks, Jesus' death
(for some strange reason) justified hatred of Jews.mhjhyemma
And now this terrorism that we're at 'war' against. It's
just more proof to me that religion does more harm than good.
People should learn that as long as you teach people with respect
and don't force your beliefs (or death if they fail to convert) on
hem, then you should be okay to go to heaven or paradise or
whatever you want to call it. I would never accept a God
hat requires atrocities against humanity instead of basic human
Dec. 01, 2001
Hey, I read some of your stuff online, some
of the articles etc etc... It's interesting. I have question
hat I was wondering if you had an answer too. It's the fact
hat the Quran is so easy to memorize? I remember as a child
I could remember those passages like the back of my hand.
How do you explain that? I know kids from the age of 5 to
adults till they die that have this entire book memorized.
And not just a few, millions.....
If you memorize
anything at the very young age, you’ll remember it till you get
old. This has nothing to do with Quran. But many people choose to
encourage their kids to memorize Quran at the very young age. This
is because they think Quran is the most important book. Those who
are not Muslims teach their kids other things to memorize. I knew
some Baha’is who had memorized thousands of verses of Bahai
writings. They had started at verty young age. The child remembers
anything that you teach him/her. This is no miracle of Quran but
he miracle of the human brain.

Do you think that you're site is constructive
? To single out Islam as a dangerous religion is to miss the
point and only serves to support bigots in the West in a "
crusade " against Islam.
site encourages hatred , something you claim Islam does and you
claim to oppose .
Remove your hate-site or amend it to include
all religious fundamentalism . I am not Muslim , I am an
atheist but feel your site is both negative and dangerous.
Whether you are a
Muslim disguised as an atheist or not your objection is answered
in the following message.
Dear Ali Sina
I feel that you should add all religions to
your website and refute them as they are untrue. I feel that
Christians especially are using this to strengthen there arguments
about islam. I can tell by your writing that you are a
rational yet blunt individual but please make it clear that you
are not promoting Christianity Islam is a threat but Christianity
is as well.
Thank you please keep up the good work
I hope you are not a christian,
Thank you for your
email and suggestion. No I am not a Christian. In several places
in my site I have said that I do not believe in Christianity and
consider it to be a false doctrine. All religions, invariably, in
my opinion are false. Please see “What
Religion to Choose?”
But I also believe many
people need something to believe. Religion to many people is a
crutch. I do not want to take away that crutch from them. I do not
want to be the champion of truth and prove to everyone who
believes in something that he or she is wrong. The very act of
believing is a primitive concept. But we are not all mature
people. Let those who want to believe in a god or a religion, have
heir faith. If this makes them happy and they do not hurt anyone
why should we dissuade them?
I do not believe in any
religion. I believe all religions are useless. Even those
religions that have good teachings are superfluous. We can
distinguish the right from the wrong by following the Golden Rule.
There is no need for someone to tell us the difference between the
right and the wrong. But if these beliefs make them happy, let
I am not against false
beliefs. I am against hateful beliefs. If Christians want to
believe that Christ rose from the death and with his body went to
Heaven, this belief does not hurt anyone even if it is ludicrous.
The same can be said about spurious beliefs of the Jews, Hindus or
other religions. I do not say we should not tell the truth and
guide these people. But this is not my battle. I don’t want to
be the champion of the Truth. My battle is against hate and
hatemongering beliefs. I fight Islam not because it is false, but
because it preaches hate. You don’t find any verse in the New
Testament that tells people to kill those who do not believe in
Jesus. There are those who commit acts of terrorism in the name of
Christianity like bombing the abortion clinics, etc. But there is
not a single verse in the New Testament that sanctions those acts
of violence. You can actually follow the teachings of Christ and
become a saint like Mother Tereza. On the other hand if you follow
he mandates of Quran to the letter you will become a Khomeini or
an Osama Bin Laden.
The difference between
Islam and other religions is in their holy books. While all other
so called holy books call their followers to be good, loving and
forgiving, Quran clearly calls upon its followers to hate the
non-believers, fight against them, subdue them and kill them.
Islam is a danger to people. If we do not eradicate this cult it
will kill millions of us. All religions are like crutch, but Islam
is not just a crutch to its believers, it is also a gun.

Thanks for your thoughtful
article. I shall circulate it amongst our members of
Bangladesh-USA Human Rights Coalition and other members. September
11 incident should be our eye opener or wake up call for all human
being specially the Muslim.
Last Friday, 23rd November we demonstrated in

on the minorities of Bangladesh. We shall send you about our
activities from time to time. Thank you again for your effort to

I just wanted to complement you on your
site and offer my support. I am impressed with your
forwardness and appreciate your message. I agree with you on
several points. Mainly the facts that Muslim websites are so busy
defending their views and showing only the verses from the Koran
hat support their viewpoint. These are the exact same tactics
used by many Christian fundamentalists who want to promote a
certain sect of Christianity. I agree with your observation that
he Koran promotes violence and hate. I am not scholar of the
Koran, however every translation that I have seen seems to appear
o promote the same anti-Christian and Anti-Judaic message. I
cannot understand how so many Muslims believe that this could be
he word of God if God is holy, peaceful and loving.
Keep up the good work and if you need some
webspace, I have some to donate.
The more I study the different religions, the
more of an atheist I become. I believe that by looking at the
evolution of society with an open mind, it becomes easy to see how
he different religions developed and why ancient people could
easily confuse natural phenomena with acts of God. I especially
liked your article on the pre-Copernicum view of Islam. I believe
hat this view alone should bring modern people to the conclusion
hat God is to be found within ourselves, not in ancient writings.
Nov. 25, 2001
Excellent website. It expounds and
demonstrates all that I've been saying for the last 30 years.
I've bookmarked it and will be distributing the URL to
friends and acquaintances. I'll also make reference to it in
my usenet posts if you don't mind.
Are you really a muslim? Are you of Arab descent?
Don't you think the only way to eliminate Islamic fundamentalism
is for Imams, mullahs and clerics to band together and to rewrite
he Qu'ran, eliminating the hate filled words and deeds? It
would take generations I'm sure, but how and where else do you
start? Is the only hope WWIII?
Thank you for your
interest in my website and promoting it.
Of course I am not a
Muslim. I am working to eradicate this cult, to expose it so to
call someone a Muslim become tantamount to insulting him. But if
you are asking about my background, yes it is Islamic. As a matter
of fact I am a descendent of Muhammad. In Iran they are called “seyyed”.
I am Iranian and very proud of my humanistic culture that was
destroyed by Islam.
I do not think Islamic
fundamentalism can be eradicated as long as Islam is alive. Islam
is fundamentalism. Those good hearted Muslims who are not
errorists are lukewarm Muslims and do not follow the Quran.
I do not think you can
re-write the Quran. Quran claims to be the words of God revealed
o Muhammad. Re-writing it is not possible unless you have a new
messenger with a new revelation. But that is not possible because
Muhammad insisted that his message is the last one and there will
be no more prophets after him. Baha’u’llah the founder of the
Bahai Faith disregarded this injunction and reinterpreting it
differently founded a new religion that is humanistic and much
more humane. But he is being denounced by Muslims and Baha’is
are executed. Bahaism has its lure but no future. The main
crippling flaw of the Bahaism is that it accepts the prophethood
of Muhammad and believes in that same deity that Muhammad
Yes the WWIII is a
possibility and if that happened it would be between the Muslims
and the civilized world. But we can avoid that if we debilitate
Islam by exposing its fallacies to its followers. I am certain
hat most of Muslims will stop following this cult when they learn
he truth. Today the majority of Iranians do no more believe in
Islam. Go to any Iranian forum on the line and see it for
yourself. The hatred of Islam among the younger generation inside
Iran is greater than those who live outside Iran.
The easiest, the least
painful and the most cost effective way to peace is to expose and
eliminate Islam. I wish our politicians in the West realize this
and instead of trying to endear themselves to Muslims and call it
“a religion of peace” promote information that tells the truth
Dear Mr. Sina, I stumbled upon your website
while searching for any information on why Islam is a false
religion, and Muhammad a false prophet. Though I was raised in an
Agnostic home, in my adult years I became a devout Christian. Even
hough I was not raised in a Christian home, I studied the
religion and believe in it completely. I was just writing to thank
you for all of your information. Also I admire you for
investigating religion instead of believing what others tell you.
I find your site most informative and
educating and it is information that should be told on a greater
scale. I would like to see you provide more easily in the
form of footnotes the source of your information so the reader can
easily go and check it out for themselves. Makes your site
far more creditable. It is obvious to me that the
entire Islam organization is pure satanic by virtue of their
behaviour. If you study real Christianity closely, you will
find it going in the opposite direction. When I say
Christianity, I do not mean what the USA calls Christianity in
heir church system, but I refer you to the books of the Bible
hat describe the church, as in the book of Acts and the letters
from Paul to the different churches. Anything less is just
hat, far less than the real thing. 14k is not pure gold.
Please continue your work in trying to inform the people of the
ruth about Islam. If I can help in any way then please let
Nov. 18, 2001
Dear Mr. Ali Sina,
Thank you for
replying to my e-mail. Yes, I did learn about your work
hrough your website I just don't know how I found it in the first
place. Now that I have the website address I will be
accessing the important information you are providing.
The events of the
last two months have made me feel like a very ignorant person.
I had always thought of myself as a person with a good knowledge
of other world cultures. I would like to think of myself of
a knowledgeable citizen of the world. Obviously I still have
a lot to learn.
Please allow you to
give you a bit of background information. My late father was
Russian Orthodox and my mother is a Sephardic Jewess with roots in
Morocco. Since they encountered a degree of hostility from their
respective families, in establishing their household it was agreed
hat their children would be raised in an atmosphere of tolerance
especially in matters of religion. In fact I am proud to say
hat last year when my father passed away his doctor, a Muslim
from Pakistan wrote our family a most warm letter praising my
father for his willingness to be treated by a
"foreigner". I hope you will understand that I did
not approach Islam with an attitude of prejudice.
Indeed before I
began to read the "Qu'ran" and the "Hadith" I
hought that Islam was just another ethical monotheism.
Obviously I did not have depth of knowledge about Islam but I did
have a superficial and romantic interest in it. I love the works
Egyptian writer Naguib Mahfouz and when I
lived in Los Angeles I saw and admired of several famous Egyptian
and Persian film makers. While I will continue to value these
beautiful things I cannot but fear and reject Islam.
I hope I have not
bored you with this lengthy letter but I would like to relate a
few more things.
After the attacks a
friend of some six plus years, a Persian woman, while mourning the
ragedy of the Twin Towers, expressed her delight at the bombing
of the Pentagon. When I tried to explain that the people on
he plane were civilians and that many of the people who worked
here were civilians also she said she didn't care. This
woman has a child out of wedlock and thus cannot return to Iran.
Since she is by herself and because I and my family genuinely care
for her, we have embraced her as a sister and daughter. In
addition she said that if she had the means she would like to get
a plane and personally drop bombs on Israel. I do not need
o say that her statements were infuriating and hurtful.
I do not know in
what country you live but here in the United States it is
ironically some of the people who claim to be the most tolerant
and open-minded who are in fact the most reactionary and
stubbornly closed minded. This past summer I meet a woman
who is the pastor of a Methodist congregation. Since I believed we
shared the same commitment to human rights, the environment, and
other "progressive" cause I started an friendship with
her. When I told her some of the things that I had learned
about Islam she became irrate and told me how intolerant,
ignorant, and untruthful I was. Without even more than five
minutes of what I had to say she yelled that she never wanted to
communicate with me again. I can't say this will be a great loss.
If she were not a woman and a Christian she would probably feel
most comfortable with the mullahs.
The vast majority of
Muslim people are innocent victims of Islam as well. I hope
and pray that people who learn about what Islam is truly about
will not react negatively or violently towards Muslims. I
hope that we will be able to intelligently solve this problem
I would welcome your
reply. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.
Most sincerely yours,
Matthew J. Fleming
It immensely saddens me
o know that there are Iranians who think like the lady friend of
yours. How shamelessly ungrateful of her for having so much
hate for the country that has given her refuge when her life would
be in danger in her own native land. Unfortunately I have come
across people like her my self. I simply cannot fathom their lack
of humanity for being so callous about the death of so many
But I know that people
like her are diminishing in number. As Iranians are awakening to
he reality of Islam and leaving this cult of hate, they view
people of other nationalities and religions as humans, members of
he same family of mankind and not as Islam teaches them as
infidels and fuels of hell.
I had nightmares for
many nights after seeing people jumping to their death from the
owers. Often tears fills my eyes even now two months after the
incident when I think of it. I saw the pictures of some of
he victims in the newspapers. It was as if they were speaking to
me and telling me to continue. I promised them to do what I can to
eradicate this cult of hate that has killed millions and is still
killing. This madness must stop. This hate must end. Islam is not
a religion of peace. Tell this to your politicians. Tell
his to your media and to your western apologetics of Islam like Karen
As of your lady friend,
he pastor of the Methodist church, all I can say is that she is
ignorant of Islam. What she does not know is that there are
religions that actually promote hate and order killing people. She
American who thinks all people have the same values as she has.
She wants to be a nice person and she thinks by not hearing bad,
not saying bad and by not seeing bad she is being wonderful human
being. But she is hiding her head in the sand. We have to confront
Islam in the same way we would or should have confronted Nazism 70
years ago. Chamberlain with his appeasing policies was wrong. It
cost millions of lives. Are Prime Minister Tony Blair
and President George W. Bush doing the same mistake today? See how
heir policy of appeasement is emboldening the Muslims.
"the most powerful
man on the planet, the U.S. president, respects and reveres islam.

I must admit its not everyday you come across
a great site like this all I can say its deep brother real deep, i
have been questioning my own religion for years being born and
raised Jewish i have had my share of obstacles with religion
aspects from everyone else including my own rabbi who in his own
right is a good man but lost with all of the blankets that
religions teach us ,,,,,we live in fear at all times why i ask if
g-d is loving and caring why do we fear so much its ashamed what
propaganda does to centuries of people we fight wars we kill
people in the name of what g-d i don't think so its mans own greed
and control of everyone's mind like the matrix keep people in the
dark so you can control and despair them forever in the name of
a prophet ,,,, its a joke. mankind will destroy mankind for what,
greed and control of everything our minds, freedoms, our
livelihood, our souls, you see i think the leaders of all of our
so called countries are the real killers they now the truths but
why expose it ???? let us die over there greed and abuse of the
system .its a shame in today's world there is no more morals
left, were are we headed too that has always

Nov. 18, 2001
Dear Dr Sina,
I feel so stunned I cant think how to start this
mail. Having read around 90% of your site (staying up until
4 in the morning on the night I discovered it!) I can say
definitely, that your site is the single most amazing, thought
provoking and brilliant thing I have ever read on the internet.
Your site was truly a revelation! You are truly a courageous
individual. I have many close Muslim friends, and have seen
heir evil side all too often. While the media has been
leaping to the defence of all muslim’s after the anti Islam
backlash started in the wake of September 11th, I’ve kept a
clear head, and carried on to advise people against this evil
doctrine. I have showed this site to a muslim friend of
mine, and he claims he can refute some of what you are saying, I
have told him not to tell me, simply to write in to you and
politely say what he disagrees with, I look forward to seeing his
response to your response! Finally I would like to say that
it is such a good feeling to have finally found someone who
fulfils the enormous potential of the internet. The internet
is a gloriously unregulated industry, and is truly one of the most
powerful mediums ever to arrive on our planet! Keep up the good
work, Yours continuing to be stunned
Nov. 18, 2001
From the outset, I was really astonished by your site. This
site is so informative and really goes down to the underlying
principles of Islam. The lacuna which creates the edifice that
most of our Muslim brothers do not see is the fact that once you
start going deeper into Islam, one can see that there is no
historical or scientific facts to support its pillars. They always
blame it on people's lack of knowledge of the Arabic Language.
Therefore, we have to go to Al-tafseer. The question which I
always ask is "Why would God put His ultimate Word in the
hands of sinners (almoufasereen)so they can explain what is in the
Quraan according to their own understandings." In addition,
is it a requirement to have a PhD in Arabic to know God?" I
speak Arabic fluently, and still they tell me that no your lack of
he Arabic language creates this problem. The fact is that only
15% of Muslims in the world speak Arabic-speaking Arabic and not
knowing it-and out of the 15%, only less than 0.1% know Arabic
fluently, the way the Quraan dictates that we should know the
Arabic language. In essence, Islam is only for those people who
can excel in this language which is abhorrent since God is for
all, and God is for the meek.
The irksome issue of principles here that should be canvassed is
he fact that almost 99% of Muslims don't know what other
religions are teaching. They refuse to read the Bible out of
ignorance, and may be fear. They don't know the fact that most of
what is in the Quraan came from the Bible.
Their greatest plunder is that Muslims always say how come God can
be a human being and so forth. Well if you read Sorat Mariam-where
God was informing Mariam of the coming of Christ, you will know
hat God became a human being there. I think it is Verse 47, and
it says that God has sent His soul and He became in the image of
man. The Quraan is so confused about the persona of Christ that
leaves the reader in a maze. Of course, if I just read the
Quraan as is, I am wrong; I have to go to Altafseer, and see what
it says. Well those moufasereen are human beings like me, so they
can make mistakes as well! Their outlet from this predicament is
hat Gabriel is the one who became man, but the problem here is if
his is true, then God's soul became Gabriel since Mariam was
praying to God, and God answered her, unless Mariam was praying to
Gabriel! In addition, if this is true, then God has many souls
which nullify the oness of God since if He has many souls, this
dictates that God is a multiplicity of gods.
What I find intriguing is the fact that God in the Quraan is so
weak since He commands His followers to kill in His name,
especially those who convert from Islam to other religions; in
essence, God cannot protect His religion, and that is why He
needed us to kill in His name-Fagatelo Fe Sabeel Allah-which is
very obscure and contradictory to the nature of God!
Something I found really upsetting is the fact that the
ranslation of the Quraan to other languages is incorrect. It is
written in a manner that entices those who do not know Arabic.
It is written in a way to resemble Christianity since Christians
are the target here, and I am sure of it, especially since they
are who went astray-althaleen!
There is a plethora of other examples where the Quraan contadicts
itself, but I will leave that to the astute reader to find them.
I always say since there is no original copy of the Quraan, may be
he present day Quraan never existed at the time of the prophet
One correction, Christians never claim that the Bible was a
revelation from God as our Muslim brothers proclaim. It was
written by regular human beings, unlike the Quraan where it was
given to the prophet directly from God to Mohamad through the
For all those who insulted you in their E-mails, especially those
who have used foul language and obscenity, I have the following to
say: It is high time that they open their minds and not show anger
and hatred towards those who want to challenge their theological
ideologies, and realize that God's persona is not how it is
depicted in the Quraan, but start to love God, and not fear Him;
hen He might dwell in their hearts and show them that God is
Love, and not fear, killing, and so forth....I can only say to
hose that: they have eyes, but they don't see, and they have
ears, but they don't listen! And finally, He Who Loves Best His
Fellow-man Is Loving God The Holiest Way He Can....

Dear Mr Sina,
Thank you for your courage. You have told the truth. The truth
hurts but it must be told. Westerners know little about Islam and
Mohammed. Even Moslims know little about their religion.
I consider myself an agnostic. But I was born a Christian in a
Moslem country. My family's Christian roots went back to the First
Century. We were given Moslem names and we kept our religious
identity a secret. Our Moslem neighbors for the most part were
good, decent people but they did not know we were Christians. They
considered all non Moslems as less than human, destined to Hell.
Many of my ancestors had been massacred because they had resisted
conversion to Islam. Killing a Christian (or a Jew) was not
considered a sin. On the contrary they believed they would
go straight to Heaven for killing non Moslems. After all didn't
he "Holy" Prophet Mohammed himself kill scores of non
I have respect for religious views of others as long as they don't
impose it on society. But I have serious doubts Islam can be
olerant. The entire doctrine is based on intolerance and
demonization of the Other.
Keep up the good work.
I would just like to thank you, for such an informative web page,
I had been looking for something like this, someone sent your web
page to me, keep up the good work,
Knowable is power, People need to know what we are really up
against..... you have to dig deep to find it. They hide is well.
some, or they do not seek the truth.
mister Sina ,
interest i have bin reading your site. You are a great teacher!
You opened my eyes and also the one’s of many of my frienhtffffffff
bgfhgjggggggggggggggds .I’ve bin ‘terrorising’ some
Islamatic internet site’s where people can do discussions about
he Islam with many of the things i’ve learned from you.
hem from you with the idea that Einstein is also not the owner of
didn’t take long to learn that my questions aren’t really
welcome. I put them in front of them anyway . These are things
hat Imams don’t want the believers to be aware off. They have
bin doing that succesfully for 1400 years. Internet is really an
unislamitic thing . And there is nothing they can do against it.
writtings are in Dutch and i’m too lazy to translate. To give
you one example of the things i wrote is the thing that Allah says
he first give the Bible and the Gospel. This must be really hard
for moslims to be aware off , since any contradiction found in
here by moslims are against their own beliefs , since this is a
book from Allah to. I dont think i have to inform you about the
silly defences the Moslims make . I think you know them all.
But one ,
i think i should mention. A imam called Haselhoef answerd me and
said that it was a trick used by Christians to convert Moslims to
Christianity. Imam Haselhoef you must know is on Duths television
all the time. He’s explaning the Islam and tries to make it look
good in these days after september 11th. Also he asked
me to tell something about myself. I didn’t tell a thing. If he
reads his he will know some more. But off course he didn’t
answer the question. For a man with that kind of authority he
makes a very weayujk impression . Isn’t it?
One of my
reasons to ‘attack back ‘ is the following : I don’t believe
he Koran is the word of God. I have no problem with what ever
people want to believe. But if some ‘believers’ are harming
‘the world ‘ because off their believes i want them to give me
good reasons why they think the book is the truth. That’s
because i have good reasons to think the book is false. They have
o proof that to me that i’m wrong. If they can’t , they must
shut up and keep their religion at home. This is my world to!
an explanation to all of us. If they don’t want to go along with
hat , don’t aks for any respect or what so ever from 5 billion
unbelievers. Does everybody have to accept someone’s believes
just like that? Please give me a reason why. I think its stupid to
even consider it a ‘ justfull ‘ question from the Taliban to
westeren countries to come up with proof of the quilt of Ben laden
. I think they are the one’s who have to come up with proof
about their believes. Respect should come from both sites .
There is a
big danger if George Bush can’t stop the terrorists in the years
o come . Americans might vote for a president who can
hgjghjghjghjghjghjghjgj. The candidate might say : What the hell
are we paying taxes for ?
Why do we
fight for years against those "no good"countries , while
we are able to win every war the same day we started it ? Why do
we pay taxes? Who is gonna stop us? Allah?
might vote for a presedent like that i believe.
I have a
few questions i hope you can answer.
v say its not allowed for a moslim to kill innocents. So the wtc
attacks are unislamitic. My idea is that unbelievers are never to
be considerd innocent. Only a moslim can be innocent. Am i right?
If i am , the attack is not unislamatic , and they are lying about
it , right in our face.
respons give moslims to the fact that the Koran says that the
stars are in the lowest heaven and closer to us than the moon? In
his matter you can not believe science and the Koran both. Since
he Koran are the words of Allah and are absolute thru and without
he posibilty of mistakes a moslim has to make a very
‘creative’ story to let the Koran be believeable.To me it
seems just as hard to denay the facts of science. Looks to me an
To me it
is a great help knowing the fact that thejhjghjhjjjjghjgjg Koran
are the words of Allah. No one can say that humans mistakes are
causing the contradictions in the Koran. (if there are any off
course) This is a good weapan i think, isn’t it? If there is
anyone to blame , it must be Allah himself.
have any internet sites of Moslims where i can put on my
‘poison’? There aren’t too many good one’s in Holland so i
like to go to English sites as well. It’s very difficult to make
up here , if the person is a child or an adult who answers to my
writtings. You might have the same problem i guess.
imams or ayattola’s or people with "great knowlege" of
he Koran know the contraditions ect you write about? (the average
moslim doesn’t) If they do , it’s hard for me to believe that
hey still believe.And if they do know and don’t tell their
students about it , they really must be considert lyers because
hey leave something important out.
Am i wrong to not consider tribes like the Taliban extemists?To my
knowlege their behaivior is very close to what the Koran wants and
askes of people. Then how can they be considered extremists if
hey just live up to the book?
you see as the futher of the Islam for the next 100 or 200 years ,
asumming they haven’t bin blowing the world up? Will comman
sence take over? There is no way this kind of information will be
kept away from people forever. Sooner or later people who
‘believe’ will learn about the things you and others wrote and
want some GOOD answers . j
news last days it was said that lately there are more Korans sold.
People are worried i guess and want to know more about it. I can
not imagian that the new readers will be less worried after some
reading? Am i right? The book on its own will not convert people
easy to the believe’s of the book. Am i right? People have in
hese days more eye for the negative in the Koran , and thats easy
o be found is my idea. It works against itself.
give me more information about Sheik Abel-Aziz Ibn Baaz who
ordered a fatwa against everyboby that doesn’t believe that the
world is flat. Do you have the exact adresses where to find the
fatwa? Are there more Moslim groups who believe the world is flat?
Taliban maybe? What does this fatwa exactly mean?Can you give
examples of people getting (death)penalty’s for not believing in
a flat earth in past times? Modern examples also wanted if there
personal thing from you i like to know. Are you living like Salman
Rushdie? Or don’t people really know who you are? Where do you
live? Are there pictures of you availible? Just for my curriousity
. If you can’t or won’t tell , i can understand why.You
don’t have to explain it.
love your site , but i think it might be a little bit to difficult
for most people to read or understand everything you say. They
might walk away. Thats a pitty. Lets face it, information about
he Koran is availible for all level’s of education. If you want
o win this ‘war’ you got the win the harts of the less
educated people even more than those of the more intellectual
ypes. There should be a simpler version of your stuff as well.
That equels it. (I would like a version in the Dutch language!!!!)
mister Sina , please go on with yourhhhhhhhhkuio9uoiupoo[op[op'[po[pppkuitfjn
jkumfh good work . The world needs people like you .
friend (It has to be like that unfortunatly)
I came across your site, and I have to say I
was deeply impressed by your realistic, even though harsh
approach. I believe the West has failed to see the true image of
Islam because they cannot imagine something as monstrous as this.
As for your site, allow me to extend my deepest congratulations,
and tell you that people like yourself give me hope that someday
here can be freedom and happiness on this planet.
I wish you luck and success, and stand your
ground no matter what many may tell.
Thank you for having the courage to shed light upon the evil that
is Islam. I have always tried to be open-minded, and have
even taking to reading about and learning other religions.
However, after reading the Qura'an, I was left with a bitter
aste. You have articulated beautifully the heinous nature
of this religion, and it's implications on the world. Your
essay "Why I left Islam" has done the same. I have
brought these before Muslim colleagues of mine and they have
unable to refute what you have said. I hope you can reach
he masses and warn them of the potential danger of the spread of
Dear Ali Sina,
As correctly assumed by yourself, my first reaction upon reading
your articles was that of utter shock and dismay. However, I have
often thought of myself as blasphemous, and skeptical. I was
almost ashamed to admit it, and was often regarded as a
disrespectful radical amongst my peers. I would like to thank you;
hank you for clearly depicting, in logical terms, what has always
been in the back of my head. I applaud you for your courage, for I
have lived in Pakistan, my home country, for 8 years before
returning to my adopted country, the U.S. The biggest question in
my mind is, "if the religion is so perfect, how can you form
any logical argument against it?" . Also, if Islam is pure,
why do Mullahs kill those who argue against it? I asked an uncle
of mine how he justified Islam; his response was not a convincing
one. I have been lied to. We have all been lied to. The truth
shall set us free.
In your debt,
It's really something valuable for minds
like yours without a clue who dwell in the dullest surface to
have the same space and opportunity to speak out your thoughts
as those who have been gifted with luminous minds capable of a
depth that is foreign to yours. Eventhough your opinions only
spread and feed ignorance, which is so easy to do, count on me
o defend your freedom to express yourself as you are
doing no matter how far in delusion, how lost and vicious your
mind has gotten.
Your site is incredible. Like many Americans,
I have been searching high and low to explain the events of 9/11
o myself. All my life I've been a student of Philosophy,
Mathematics, Economics, and History. There is more truth on your
website than any one place I've ever seen. How can people around
he world be made aware of what you're saying? What can I do to
help? Thank You,

I am still not out
of the "revelation" u gave me with this site. I just
cant stop my eyes getting wet to be aware of a fact that there are

After reading Paul Fregosi's book, "Jihad", I realized
what a sham is being being pulled on the people of this Nation.
However, my comments to the various sites I frequent, ( Andrew
Sullivan, Mickey Kaus, Glenn Reynolds (instapundit.com), NRO and
Jim Taranto(sp?)@ WSJ's best of the web) seem to be totally
ignored. Jaime Glasnove @ Horowitz's site and Daniel Pipes
have touched around the edges, but the facts are still hidden from
Tell the truth and you are a "nut-case" bigot.
Glad to see you are not afraid of that appelation.
whoever you are,
I am an American. I am a Christian. I
believe in peace and freedom of expression, etc. But freedom
doesn't come free. Sometimes we must fight to defend that
position. Your home page says much. DO NOT REMOVE IT!!!!!
Keep it, and build on it, and improve it as time goes on.
Let it stand as a beacon, and a reminder to all of how much we
value freedom. Good job.

Dear Dr. Sina,
I found your website yesterday and have been reading it ever
since. I would just like to thank you for having the
courage to post this information. I think it is very
important that we know what we're up against, especially during
hese chaotic times.
Hello Sir u r doing a great and gutsy job i
must say. I can understand the problem of ignorant , illiterate
and poor muslims, But what about the educated ones? I know some
very well educated muslims ,even they are nice human beings,
but still they respect islam and prophet muhammad, why? Even after
reading Quran and Hadith thoroughly !!, they even say islam never
eaches killing anyone !! I mean , i wanna ask u "WHAT'S
THEIR PROBLEM" , Why dont they accept the reality??? They
know wot's written in those books , they read it and then deny
hose clauses and still they r proud to be as muslims. Those
islamic terriorists follow better islam than these people......haha.
I've read most of the pages of ur site, even
i'm reading online quran (www.al-bukhari.org/), slowly these days.
And i fully agree , the points which u've raised are genuine, all
hose pharases are written in that quran which I read......O Man,
how can any one who has read quran thoroughly say that it's a book
of guidance for all mankind???......huh, disgusting !!
.....huh i don’t have words....i want to say much more ,but
words are not coming in my mouth....lolz......ne ways.......keep
it up......u r doing a great job. May god bless u ( if
any)......i dont think there is any Lord Ram or Allah ........haha....
I want to thank you for maintaining your web site. You are not
alone in your beliefs. Thank you again for taking the risk that
you take by making the truth available.
P.S. Please do not write me back. My Muslim husband might read the
email and that would endanger my life.
I hope you read this.
Hang on sister. the dawn is nigh and the darkness will dissipate
with the first rays of the Sun. They have power to take away
your life but they have no power to subdue your intelligence.
You are a great woman.
Shame on the man who said "women are deficient in
intelligence and should obey their husbands", and shame
on men who believed him.
I just want to thank you for your excellent article "what
religion to believe" and the website you have. I wish
everyone in this world would think like you did. Most likely, 95%
of all disaster that happening in the world will resolve if there
were no religion in the world.
I was recently given your site address by a stranger that visited
my site and requested that I view yours.
In my days I have seen many sites with many beliefs and opinions,
but yours is one of the very few that offers wise, intelligent and
rational opinions, cleverly mixed with facts and undisputable
I congratulate you on a brave, honest and commendable work.
Best Regards, \
I found your website by accident, as I was
"reviewing" (negatively) Karen Armstrong's biography of
Muhammad on Amazon.com. Another reviewer casually referred
o this site as a good source of objective info about Islam.
When I opened up the home page and saw the photo of the WTC aflame
with the Quranic quote above it about the "Towers," I
burst into tears. I had found the same passage in the Quran
and recognized immediately that it was the basis for this attack
on the WTC. To see it so graphically portrayed was very
disturbing to me.
I have read your website with great interest
and I agree that it is a religion which promotes hatred and
intolerance. Here are just a few of the evil acts of terror they
have carried out.
1) In Kashmir many Hindus have been killed by Islamic
2) Many innocent Jews have been killed by in Israel by Islamic
3) Many innocent Christians in NY were killed by Islamic
4) In Indonesia many Christians have been killed or forced
5) In many Arab states it is an offence to carry the bible
or to practice your religion
yet many muslims are invited to the west to practice their
6) In Paris there was a bomb explosion in the metro by
7) In Moscow a blocks of flat was bombed by Islamic
8) In South Africa planet Hollywood was bombed by muslims.
9) I have seen pictures of muslims holding a machine gun in
one hand and a copy of the koran in the other. The bible says that
you should "love your neighbour."
10) A Sheikh in London has said that it is "his duty to
convert Britain to Islam". People should not be told to
convert in a free society.
11) Most refugees come from muslim countries. Why do they
need to run away if the Islamic countries they come from are
12) In Afghanistan Christian aid workers were imprisoned for
13) Many embassies around the world have been bombed by
Islamic fundamentalists. Many believe they will go to heaven
for their actions.
14) It's a religion with a history of converting people by
My present feelings about Islam is that it is
mired in the middle ages. Some Christian sects are trying to
change and evolve, but Islam by it's very nature is immutable.
Anyone who tries reform in any way is a heretic. Some friends and
I were talking about what significant advances to society have
come from the Muslim world in the last 500 years???
Before that the middle eastern scholars, mathematicians, and
raders were so much more advanced than their European
counterparts. It seems to me Islam kept them from advancing. New
scientific thought was stifled by the fear it might be heretical.
Where is our common-sense? Reasoning? Logic?
After nearly 1500 years later, we have not taken a detour or be
reformed from the teaching/lifestyle of desert-walkers and
particularly one man named Mohamed. How was he different from
David Korash, Jim Jones or Ayatolah Khomeni? They all were loners
with questionable childhoods. It is about time we stopped this
insanity! Look around us in this 21st Century! Out of 1.2 billion
population emerging from 57 Moslem nations, none has a democratic
form of government. None has ever produced a Noble Prize winner
for medicine/economics/science achievement.
None has seen their sport stars gone home
with more than 5 gold medals from 57 nations combined at any one
Olympic Games in recent years. Why? The answer is simple! They are
all too preoccupied with preparing their journey for the Next
Life. Life on earth is just a transit. If both Christianity and
Judaism also believe in Heaven for eternal resting, why are they
having more fun living on earth than the Moslems? Did you ever
ake time to think about it?
Why moslems so centered on sex and woman? Why
does Islam sound so much like Communism? That is, it only looks
good in theory; but in reality it doesn't work. Why are Moslems
made to be so proud( as I was )? Proud of what? Look at Pakistan
oday! While chanting 'Death to Satan (America)', the same time
begging for their national debt to be forgiven. Last week, a
pregnant Moslem woman in Nigeria was stoned to death after being
accused of a premarital sex.
Can't we first learn to be humans before
becoming moslems? How can we conceivably stand shoulder to
shoulder in a mosque with those men who see nothing wrong with
crushing the skull of a woman who may be their mother, sister or
eacher? How is Islam be anything but a 'cult'? When was the last time
you came across the word,' love' in Koran? Love for all human
beings? Love for
mankind? How is the overwhelming majority of Moslems rely on a
book they can't even comprehend? As Islam is doomed, we are
unless we come up with courage to denounce the teaching of hate
for Allah's other creations (Jews/Christians/Buddhists/ and
others) and Mohamed was nothing but lustful moron who brainwashed
others morons just like Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot. And if you are
a moron not to see it, be a proud moslem as you are brought up to
be and keep on lying to the same person you see in the mirror.
I have searched and searched, read book after
book and couldn't find a genuine refutation that meet my needs
until I came to your site. I have a deep fear of Muslims and
heir religion. I have told people for years that this
religion is the biggest farce ever. (well with the exception of
he Mormons, but they don't go around killing everyone) What
I don't understand is how any intellegent person, one who looks
for facts to back up his belief would fall for this!
I believe people are easily led when
hey do not do their research. But, Islam likes to kill you
if you don't convert!
you are.... wherever you are God bless you and keep you away from
love this golshan.com; i wished there was more of us but
hat is okay with all this enlightning truth you have shown here

Dr. Ali Sina:
I have read your website, and your arguments against Islamic
heories. It is really very surprising and heartening to know that
while there is an Osama bin Laden, one also finds someone like
Drs. Ali Sina and Ibn Warraq in the spectrum of Islamic culture.
You are an inspiration.

Thank you for revealing Islam and the Quran. Americans,
including myself, in general know nothing about Islam
and therefore remain confused. They cannot rebuke the
present American Muslin public relations campaign of Islam is
a religion of peace. Americans cannot read the Quran or
study Islam. Perhaps, the Islamic scholars know not to
reveal it in fear of its written and obvious inconsistencies.
I am a Christian Orthodox, born and raised in
he United States. I knew in my heart there is a problem
with the Islam--just based on the endless failures of Islamic
socities and countries, the lack of peace and love, and the
continuous fighting both internally and with the rest of the
world. The results are the proof, even without reading one
arabic word of the Quran.
Unfortunately, our country (I would be honor
o have you as a United States citizen) is consumed with
he idea that thinking all religions are good and must be
protected. ¿What happens if the religion is false or even a
deception for the working of Satan ? ¿Do we
continue to import and harbor it within our borders and
protect it with our international policies? If so, our great
country will remain exposed to evil doers and their uguly
Thank you for re-affirming my beliefs.
Thank you for your stamina, strength, and your courage for
revealing to the western world the truth of Islam. We
suspected the lack of truth within Islam, but you confirmed
it through revealing the life style of Muhammad and the words of
God bless you and may he continue to guide
and protect you and your thinking.
