    ““the authority is derived from the Quran itself”

    A book, a dead thing, cannot have authority. A book only comes “alive” by a living human being though his interpretation. Obviously the prominent muslim scholars and the adherents of ISIS come after reading of the quran to different opposite conclusions. Who is correct, or are both wrong? What is lacking in islam is a divinely guided authority to interpret the holy writ with infallibility. Therefore their convictions are mere opinions that conflict with each other.

    The Catholic Church, the Church Jesus founded, claims to infallible interpret the Holy Bible. To examine Her claim you can read the relevant part of the catechism:

    Islam divides Mankind into 2 Groups. 1. Fans of Allah (Superior Bosses), 2. Foes of Allah (Inferior Creatures; all those who are Not Fans are Foes). Fans have to Show the Might of Allah by Butchering the Foes!
    Allah is the Creator.Why did he Create Foes?
    Was/Is he so powerless to depend on humans to destroy the Foes?

    What they are fighting for is really the right to practice and absolution from ignorance, thuggery, rape of non gang members and most importantly freedom to show the love of paedophillia.

    It’s all about the attainment of ‘ manly’ power by fair means or foul…..

    As the Sufi mystic of Anal haq (I am the truth or I am the god) fame, AL hajaj said, Iblis (devil) was the truest monotheistic. This is because Iblis alone could not accept any partner to Allah and hence would not bow to Adam. It is said that ‘devil is in details’ that’s why Quran is so concerned about which hand to use to clean shit or what number of stones to use and so many other trivial methods. Quran is least concerned about spirituality and imprisons a person in mundane trivialities. No other religion pays attention to social norms in such detail. Infact all religions like Hinduism,Buddhism, Jainism,Christianity,Shintoism speak against lust and desire and consider them roadblocks in spiritual evaluation. But the Quran by its advocacy of polygamy, pedophilia, concubinage, slavery is very much concerned about halting of the spiritual progress of a person. As Mr Junaid rightly shows that Quran is deceptive when it appeals to the conscience of people in few of its verses that leads the gullible apologists astray. These apologist, for the sake of their conscience and their cowardice to abandon islam, invent new meanings or change the meanings of the Quranic verses, for they cannot bear the assault on their conscience by these perverse verses. I pity them for the torture they undergo within themselves, but it is also true that not only they hinder their own spiritual growth but also dellude the uneducated (in knowledge of Islam) astray. I do not believe in this devil stuff, but if it exists then this is it.

    As for this “peaceful religion” the Koran in 9:11. instructs “The believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, they kill and are killed…” This is another verse from the Koran that I had look up in a English Koran “translated ” and printed year after 9/11 and this is also Koranic verse that was changed to sound peaceful when read. Nevertheless we all may be sure that the Arabic Koran always reads the same on violent and deadly ways. One point to be made is is this very verse has, among other Koranic verses, has the power to lead to jihad suicide/homicide attacks. Furthermore, The Koran also teaches about a lust-filled filled paradise with many virgins, houris, in it for the male Muslim who dies in the jihad as a “martyr” for the cause of Islam. As seen ,for example, in the Koranic verses of 44:54. 55:65. 78:31. The Muslim clerics, such has the imams and mullahs, very thoroughly brainwash this Koranic doctrine/story of a lust -filled place with virgins into the hearts and minds of others in both madrases and mosques. Those who comes out of those place of Islamic mind programming centers are so very indoctrinated, as well as warped in both mind and soul that they are literally dangerous to self and others. In ,fact, the are so mind warped that they actually view the murderous actions of jihad suicide/homicide bombings as “martyrdom operations.” The Bible warns about such false teacher as those imams and mullahs ,who ingrain this type of doctrine /story as of a lust-filled place with virgins in to the thoughts of others. For the Bible in Second Peter 2:18. reads “For they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lust of the flesh…” Moreover, many a times a brainwashed jihad minded Muslim in his death recording talks about “the wedding with the virgins” that he will have after he becomes a “martyr.” Such a belief Jesus would denounce as being based on false teaching. For Jesus taught “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry ,or are given in marriage, but are as the angles in heaven.” Matthew 22:29,30. In contrast to the Islamic pipedream of the jihadist in the Koranic story/doctrine of a place with virgins, Christians have the reality of Second Peter 1:16. Which reads “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…” [K.J.V.]

    The “holy book ” of Islam ,the Koran instructs in 47:4 “Whenever you encounter the unbelievers strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them…” That’s very strange teaching for a “peaceful religion.” There are many other verses and places in the Koran that also teach the use of violence and killing, as in for example 9:5. One thing that many scholars of Islam, such as Robert Spencer, have said that after September 11, 2001 many English translations of the Koran have since been changed, as in watered down, to hide the brutality violent and deadly nature of this religion. As in a religious cover up of the truth. One thing about this is that way before 9/11 I had looked up that very verse of 47:4. in the Koran as it read as above. Much latter about twelve years after September 11, 2001 I have looked that same verse in a English translation of the Koran that the made translated and printed years after 9/11 and that verse did sound rather peaceful when read. This shows that such non-Muslim scholars of Islam like Robert Spencer did have a valid point in what they said.
