Leaving Islam





A Balanced View Towards the Middle East.

The Left’s current fascination with portraying western civilisation in conjunction with Christianity as evil and Islam unquestionably as a religion of tolerance and peace is amusing.

Christianity is directly linked as the determining factor in past injustices, such as the colonisation and eradication of indigenous races. Hateful verses of the Quran are followed by Muslims and implemented by Islamic governments worldwide, yet modern and mainstream (the overwhelming majority of) Christians reject the unsavoury passages of the Bible that lead to such historical injustices.

If Christianity is chastised, why hasn’t Islam and the Quran been examined accurately by the Left? At the age of 50, Muhammad married Ayesha, a 6-year-old girl. When Ayesha was at the tender age of 9 the two had sex. Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64: “the Prophet married her (Ayesha) when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years”. Also Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151 narrates Aisha: “I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me”. Don’t bother questioning the legitimacy of these interpretations and translations, this paedophilia is well-documented in Islamic literature.

Muslims who have read the Quran and the Sunnah would have come across this paedophilia, documented in numerous forms. Why should Muhammad after having sex with a girl whom still played with her dolls, be faithfully followed and respected by millions of people worldwide?

Throw in the facts that Islam demands all Muslims to fight unbelievers until Islam reigns supreme (Quran: 2:193) and that a women’s word is not admissible and to be believed in a court of law (Quran: 2:282), the validity that Islam as a religion of peace, mercy and forgiveness has to
be questioned. Perhaps Muhammad’s relationship with Ayesha and the above verses uphold the view that Islam is incompatible with Western society and democracy, and is responsible for the Middle East’s inability to modernise.

It is true that contradictions exist both in the Quran and the Bible (last count the Bible had 143 direct contradictions). God/Allah’s existence is under the assumption that he is complete perfection and is the Creator of the universe - therefore God cannot contradict himself. Since God was said to have moved men to compile the Bible and Quran (Muhammad was allegedly a Prophet who had direct communication with Allah), the origin of these Holy Scriptures is not God. Alternatively it can be reasoned that living your life under the assumptions of a book full of hateful verses is illogical, and that one hateful verse cannot be tempered or cancelled out by a peaceful verse.

Other factors should be considered than just ‘American foreign policy’ and the ‘evils of capitalism’ before justifying Islamic terrorism and explaining why Arab poverty exists. The above explanation of the dark side of the Quran surely has to be considered as a possible factor for the ills of the Middle East; theocracy and a lack of democracy leading to poor human rights and a low standard of living. This approach is more balanced than suggesting reasons like Jews may have perpetuated the attacks of 9/11, and that Western imperialism has spurned and sustained the dictatorships of the Middle East.
