Some Quotes About Islam

                                                     QUOTES ON ISLAM 

The following quotes, over a period in excess of 200 years, well serve to define Islam, the religion of “peace and tolerance”. 

(2002)  By James Bissett, ex-Ambassador of Canada to Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and Albania.  “It is common knowledge that Saudi Arabia is the most extremist of the Muslim States.  It finances the infamous Madrassas (schools) that preach a litany of hate and turn out thousands of fanatical Islamic zealots.  It indirectly provides the funding and its’ citizens provide most of the fighters for Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda organization.  It supports, financially and by other means, the Palestinian terrorists and other Muslim anti-Western groups throughout the world.” 

(c. 1998)  By M.J. Haipur.  A religion, as a man, must be judged by the fruits of having existed; what has Islam given to our world, except genocide, slavery, and denigration of the human spirit?” 

(2003)  By Edourd T. Nelosni.  “Islam is, to the body politic of the world, as a festering pus-filled carbuncle is to the backside of a human being.” 

(1943)  By C.S. Lewis.  "If Christianity was something we were making up, of course we could make it easier.  But it is not.  We cannot compete, in simplicity with people who are inventing religions.  How could we?  We are dealing with Fact.  Of course anyone can be simple if he has no facts to bother about." 

(c. 1790)  By Alexis de Tocqueville.  “I studied the Koran a great deal.  I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad.  As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world, and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion infinitely more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”  

(1991)  By Julie Burchill, of Britain’s newspaper, The Guardian, after the 9/11 terrorist .attacks.  “The terrorist attacks were a tragedy for the people who died or were injured, and for their families and friends.  For the rest of us, they were a wake-up call as to what type of lunatics we are dealing with.  And sleepwalking our way back into ill-sorted, dewy-eyed people personal politics is the last thing we need to set us up for the fight ahead.  Come on you liberals, don’t give me the morbid pleasure of saying, ‘I told you so’ again.”                    

(1908)  By The Catholic Encyclopedia.  “In matters political, Islam is a system of despotism at home and aggression abroad….The rights of non-Moslem subjects are of the vaguest and most limited kind, and a religious war is a sacred duty whenever there is a chance of success against the “Infidel”.  Medieval and Modern Mohammedan, especially Turkish, persecutions of both Jews and Christians are perhaps the best illustration of this fanatical religious and political spirit.” 

(1997)  By Muammar Kaddafi (after meeting with Louis Farrakhan).  “We are used to facing the United States as a fortress from the outside.  Now we are finding a breach to penetrate the country (the U.S.) and confront it from within.”

(1997)  By Louis Farrakhan (in Harlem).  “A decree of death has been passed on America.  The judgment of God has been rendered, and she must be destroyed.”

(c. 1903)  By William Muir.  “The sword of Muhammad and the Qur’an (Koran) are the most fatal enemies of civilization, truth, and liberty which the world has yet known.”   

(2002)  By Franklin Graham.  “Islam is an evil and wicked religion.” 

(1997)  By David Pryce-Jones.  “Democracy sometimes appears paralyzed by those who take advantage of its freedoms in order to abuse them for undemocratic ends.”   

(2001)  From Egypt’s second most influential newspaper, Al-Akhbar. “Our thanks go to the late Hitler, who wrought in advance, the vengeance of the Palestinians upon the most despicable villains on the face of the earth.  However, we rebuke Hitler for the fact that the vengeance was insufficient.” 

(2001)  By C.O. Jones, after 9/11.  “Evil exists, and the worst evil of all, is that practiced in the name of religion.”

(2001)  By Al-Badr spokesman Mustaq Aksari, on CNN, September 19, 2001, eight days after 9/11.  “Islam must rule the world and until Islam does rule the world we will continue to sacrifice our lives.” 

(1937)  By King ibn Saud.  “Verily, the word of Allah teaches us, and we implicitly believe it, that for a Muslim to kill a Jew, or for him to be killed by a Jew, ensures him immediate entry into Heaven and into the august presence of Allah.” 

(1982)  By the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran.  “We are not afraid of economic sanctions or military intervention.  What we are afraid of is Western universities.”

(1985)  By Sa’id Raja’i”-Khorassani, Iranian delegate to the U.N.  “The very concept of human rights is a Judeo-Christian invention and inadmissible in Islam.”   

(1899)  By Winston Churchill.  “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries.  Besides the fanatical frenzy which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is a fateful fatalistic apathy.”
