Balanced View Towards the Middle East.
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
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
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.
