President Bush and our nation’s leaders are not telling you the whole truth about the war on terrorism.

In fact, they can’t.

Because the war we’re fighting is a religious war. A war not against Muslims, but rather a war against Islam.

You see, when you examine the Islamic holy book, the Qu’ran, you find Islam is anything but a peaceful religion. Sure many Muslims are dear, wonderful, peaceful people. . .

But Islam is a militaristic and imperialistic religion, whose followers are commanded by the Qu’ran to subjugate all other people without hesitation to shed blood.

If our President told you the truth about Islam, it would cause the weak coalition of Islamic nations he’s enlisted to battle terrorism to fall apart. In fact, it could easily turn the entire Islamic world against the United States and the West.

You see, Osama Bin Laden and his followers are mainstream Islam.

In fact, The Qu’ran, Sura 5, verse 85, describes the inevitable enmity between Islam and the rest of the world:

‘Strongest among men in enmity to the Believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans.’

Sura 9, verse 5 adds:

‘Then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them. And size them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them, in every stratagem (of war).’

Then nations, however mighty, the Qu’ran insists, must be fought ‘until they embrace Islam.’

My friend, the 7th Century Qu’ran is still taught today as the immutable word of Allah. And Osama Bin Laden and more than 13 million other followers of mainstream (terrorist) Islam (rather than a more secular Islam) have gained much of the control of the Muslim world.

And subjugate they have done. A recent Wall Street Journal editorial recently pointed out that all but one of the world’s remaining military regimes are in Muslim countries. With the exception of Turkey and Bangladesh, there are no real elections in any Muslim country. And of the current active 30 conflicts in the world no fewer than 28 concern muslim governments and/or communities. Two-thirds of the world’s political prisoners are held in Muslim countries, which carry out 80% of all executions each year.

What’s more, according to Baroness Caroline Cox, a member of the British House of Lords, more than 160,000 Christians will by martyred this year. And Islamic authorities and governments will kill most of those.

If you still doubt the Qu’ran didn’t inspire the attacks on America, then read these quotes (Surah 59:2; 8:12 & 8:65):

‘. . .the wrath of Allah came to them from quarters from which they had little expected it, and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers.’

‘. . .give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers:

you smite them above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.’

‘O messenger! Rouse the Believers among you to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish two thousand of the unbelievers: for these are people without understanding.’
