I Think Not!
The Free Muslim Coalition
Against Terrorism supports all efforts to improve the economic
standing of Muslims all over the world as a means to end terrorism.
The economics of Islam are compatible with market economy.
Islam’s first lady, Khadija who was the wife of the Prophet
Mohammad, was a renowned businesswoman and trader. The Coalition
wants to integrate the community as a whole into the global market
in order to improve people’s standard of living and reduce the
number of people who sympathize with extremism and terrorism because
of their inability to gain a minimum level of prosperity.
With a soaring unemployment rate and a large population of
underage citizens, much of the Arab and Muslim world is starring
down an economic crisis. Poverty is a breeding ground for terrorism.
In the Coalition’s efforts to eliminate terrorism, we seek to
engage the region’s youth in economic development opportunities,
fostering hope for a better future and closing their minds to
terrorism and Islamic extremism.
Equal access to economic opportunities for all people
regardless of ethnicity, gender, marital status or religion is a
democratic value that should be nurtured in the Muslim world as well
as in Muslim communities in the West. The Coalition integrates the
value of economic equality into our message in order to stop
terrorism by destroying its base of support.
The Coalition supports the Administration’s efforts to
eliminate the financial means of terrorism. The Coalition joins the
Administration’s efforts by promoting economic development in the
Muslim world and destroying the audience of terrorists by involving
Muslim populations in the region’s march towards modernity.
By Ali Sina
Islamic terrorism is not the outcome of poverty but
the direct result of Islamic indoctrination. The terrorists do not come
form poor families but they are wealthy, if not filthy wealthy,
or belong to middle class. They are not uneducated but mostly university
grads, doctors or engineers. They are not your typical suffering people.
Thirty or forty years ago when Muslims were poor the problem of Islamic
terrorism was inexistent.
Islamic terrorism is a problem because
Muslims are Muslim. The problem is Islam not poverty or lack of education.
During the last few decades Muslims have become rich, partly thanks to Oil
and party thanks to massive immigration to the Western countries. Now that
they are rich they want Jihad.
Jihad is a pillar of Islam. But Muslims are asked to
be patient when they are poor, weak and unable to wage the Jihad. They
must resume Jihad when they have a fairly good chance of winning.
Dr. M. Khan the translator of Sahih Bukhari and the
Quran into English writes:
"Allah revealed in Sura Bara'at (Repentance, IX) [the order to
discard (all) obligations (covenants, etc), and commanded the Muslims to
fight against all the Pagans as well as against the people of the
Scriptures (Jews and Christians) if they do not embrace Islam, till they
pay the Jizia (a tax levied on the Jews and Christians) with willing
submission and feel themselves subdued (as it is revealed in 9:29). So the
Muslims were not permitted to abandon "the fighting" against
them (Pagans, Jews and Christians) and to reconcile with them and to
suspend hostilities against them for an unlimited period while they are
strong and have the ability to fight against them. So at first "the
fighting" was forbidden, then it was permitted, and after that it was
made obligatory "[Introduction to English translation of Sahih
Dr. Sobhy as-Saleh, a contemporary academic, quoted
Imam Suyuti the author of Itqan Fi 'Ulum al- Qur'an who wrote:
“The command to fight the infidels was delayed until the Muslims becames
strong, but when they were weak they were commanded to endure and be
patient. [ Sobhy as_Saleh, Mabaheth Fi 'Ulum al- Qur'an, Dar al-'Ilm
, 1983, p. 269.]
Dr. Sobhy, in a footnote, commends the opinion of a scholar named Zarkashi
"Allah the most high and wise revealed to Mohammad in his weak
condition what suited the situation, because of his mercy to him and his
followers. For if He gave them the command to fight while they were weak
it would have been embarrassing and most difficult, but when the most high
made Islam victorious He commanded him with what suited the situation,
that is asking the people of the Book to become Muslims or to pay the
levied tax, and the infidels to become Muslims or face death. These two
options, to fight or to have peace return according to the strength or the
weakness of the Muslims."[ibid p. 270]
The reason Jihad has resumed is because Muslims feel strong, and
terrorism provides a method through which a few of them can kill many.
The problem of Islamic terrorism cannot be solved by
improving the economic condition of Muslims. On the contrary this feeds
their frenzy and emboldens them.
If Muslims have more than what they
need for their bare survival they donate to Islamic "charities",
and that fund is used to finance Jihad. Before giving them economic development, Muslims must be weaned from
Islam. As long as they are
Muslims and believe in verses like 4:95,
development is the very thing Muslims should not have
There are three ways to fight Islamic terrorism.
Detoxify Muslims from Islam. Islam must be fought ideologically and
rejected as a doctrine created by a psychopath cult leader and Muslims be
brought back to the fold of humanity.
Reduce Muslims into abject poverty and make sure they never
have excess money to give to "Islamic charities". They must not feel
strong enough to continue the Jihad and as Imam Suyuti says "delay it
until they become strong".
Fight them and destroy them before they can destroy mankind.
these three alternatives faithfreedom.org
favors the first one. We strive hard to show Muslims that Islam is false
and Muhammad was a sick man and a liar. We hope Muslims start leaving
Islam en masse and end this insanity before the Jihadists commit the
ultimate stupidity and this war becomes nuclear. If that happen Muslims
will be wiped out.
are our only options to end Islamic terrorism. “b” and “c” are
inhumane. The only humane option is the truth. Muslims must be given the
truth and weaned from Islam. The lies of Islam must be exposed. Islam and
only Islam is the problem and not poverty or anything else. The problem
must be removed not its symptoms. It is time that Muslim intellectuals and
everyone else pull out their collective heads out of the sand of denial,
face the truth and solve the problem from its root. If
"a" fails "c" is the default alternative. We must not
let that happen.
is the position of faithfreedom.org
and we, the ex-Muslims, invite everyone to join our cause and help us
fight Islam which is the cause of all these ills. Once Islam is eliminated
and its victims are set free, economic development and prosperity will
automatically ensue, Human Rights will be restored, democracies will take
root and these ex-Muslim nations will be ushered into a new age of
renaissance and enlightenment. Education will improve, science will
flourish and in a century or two the today’s battered Islamic world will
surpass the Western civilization. The momentum generated though this
renaissance will illumine the horizons of the world and will catapult the
today’s wretched Muslims to the acme of glory. But the first thing we
must do is to end their slavery of mind.
