- January 12, 1999: The Taliban brought in the New Year by assassinating the wife and son of a "moderate" Muslim rival. Abdul Haq's family, who had fled Afghanistan for Peshawar, Pakistan, were murdered in their homes by the most religious Muslims.
- January 16, 1999: Better at creating lists and offering bribes than understanding the situation, the American justice department added Osama bin Laden to the FBI's Most Wanted list. .
- January 22, 1999: Three Islamic Group GIA network ringleaders received 8 years for their acts of terrorism against the French. 84 Muslim militants got lesser sentences in a mass French trial.
- February 15, 1999: PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan was arrested and returned to Turkey, prompting a wave of Kurdish protests across Europe.
- February 16, 1999: Kurdish rioters stormed and occupied the Greek Embassy in Vienna, taking the Greek Ambassador and six other persons hostage. The attack followed the Turkish government's announcement of the successful capture of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) leader Abdullah (Slave-to-Allah) Ocalan. Kurds also occupied Kenyan, Israeli, and other Greek diplomatic facilities in France, Holland, Switzerland, Britain, and Germany over the following days.
- February 21, 1999: The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan joined forces with the Islamic Movement of Turkestan to bomb a market in Tashkent, killing 12. The IMU and IMT would go on to kidnap several U.S. civilians.
- March 1, 1999: In the United States, Gazi Ibrahim Abu Mezer was sentenced to life for the 1997 New York subway suicide-bomb plot.
- March 7, 1999: In Bangladesh, a bomb at a concert killed 10, wounding 75; Harkatul Jihad was responsible. They were suspected to be connected to bin Laden, as he, rather than Islam, was now the face of evil.
- March 10, 1999: In France, 6 Libyans were convicted in absentia. They were sentenced to life for the UTA bombing.
- March 15, 1999: In the United Kingdom, fundamentalist Muslim, Abu-Hamzah al-Masri, was arrested. He was accused by Yemen of terrorist attacks there.
- March 26, 1999: Continuing to show his influence in the land of Islam, blind Qur'anic scholar and convicted terrorist, Sheikh Ar-Rahman, convinced Al-Gama'at al-Islamiyya (the Islamic Group) to halt their violent attacks against Egyptian targets. Actually, he wasn't playing peace maker. It was just a ploy to make his ignorant prey more vulnerable. Less than a month later, foolishly trusting the word of this Islamic religious leader, Egypt released more than 1,000 al-Gama'at al-Islamiyya (GIA) militants after the group renounced violence. Some of these bad boys went off and joined al-Jihad and al-Qaeda. And those who didn't and stayed the course, proved that Muslims should never be trusted - especially when they renounce violence for political gain. We haven't heard the last of the Islamic Group. (See June 23, 2000 if you are curious as to how long it would take for this religious Muslim to disavow his promise.).
- March 27, 1999: Demonstrating a penchant for murder in Peshawar, Pakistan, the religious adherents of the Taliban murdered another less religious Muslim, Muhammad Jehanzeb, the secretary of the anti-Taliban organization, Haji Qadir.
- April 5, 1999: Two suspects in the Pan Am 103 bombing were turned over to Netherlands for trial by Libya. UN sanctions, which were in place since 1992, were lifted.
- April 7, 1999: In Algeria, the army killed 19 GIA Islamicists, including Abou Shouraka, the right hand man of al-Gama'at al-Islamiyya leader Antar Zouabri.
- April 23, 1999: Satan's little helpers in the United Nations Human Rights Commission, after commending the PLO for their murderous assault on Jews and Christians, and after two decades of silence regarding the Muslim-led genocides perpetrated in the Sudan, Somalia, and Algeria, condemned the Taliban government for "Human rights abuses." They then designated Afghanistan a "terrorist-sponsored state.".
While, thanks to Muhammad's legacy, the Taliban Afghani Islamic government was sponsoring terrorism, having murdered 60,000 of its own citizens, so were Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Nigeria, Algeria, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Chechnya, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, and Turkey and yet the only one of these fiefdoms that had ever made their list, had now been removed. Hypocrisy isn't helpful. These nations all have the following things in common and the first leads to all of the rest: Islam, terrorism, repression, poverty, indoctrination, no free speech or free press, no freedom of religion or equal rights for women, hatred of Jews and Christians, and no hope for a better life.
- May 3, 1999: Palestinian Oudeh, in his auto-biography, admitted his role in the murderous Munich Olympics attack that killed Jewish athletes. In the Islamic world, murder isn't a crime; it's a badge of honor.
- May 9, 1999: Again showing the long reach of Islamic terrorism, an Argentina court found Islamic Jihad and Hizballah responsible for the Israeli Embassy bombing.
- May 19, 1999: In the United States, Ali Muhammad was charged with plotting with al-Qaeda in a global conspiracy to kill U.S. citizens.
- June 1, 1999: In France, the trail began for 22 Islamic militants responsible for the July-October 1995 bombings including the Paris metro attacks. These occurred on: 7/25, 8/17, 9/3, 9/7, 10/6, and 10/17/1995.
- June 27, 1999: In Nigeria, Muslims began a civil war to enact Islamic law. In Port Harcourt armed Muslim youths stormed a Shell oil platform, kidnapping one U.S. citizen, one Nigerian national, and one Australian citizen, causing undetermined damage. Further seizures of oil facilities followed.
- July 5, 1999: A PKK suicide attack in Adana killed 2 and injured 12.
- July 13, 1999: In India, Muslim militants stormed the Kashmir paramilitary camp, killing 4, taking 12 hostage.
- August 2, 1999: In Saudi Arabia, ten Arab/Muslim ministers discussed the implementation of "The Arab Convention on the Fight Against Terrorism." The result was that two years later, 15 of the 19 9/11 Islamic suicide bombers would trained in Saudi Arabian Islamic schools funded by the host country. .
- August 3, 1999: The PKK attacked and killed 6 villagers, wounding 7 in southeastern Turkey.
- August 4, 1999: In Yemen, a bomb attack in a Sanaa market killed 7, injuring 45. The Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan claimed responsibility. Good Muslims were continuing to murder bad Muslims in accordance with the Qur'an.
- August 9, 1999: In Yemen, 8 Brits and 2 Algerians were convicted of terrorism. They were linked to the Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan. It was good to see that Briton was now manufacturing their fair share of Islamic hooligans.
- August 21, 1999: In Pakistan, two Muslims were sentenced to die for the 1997 murder of 4 U.S. citizens.
- August 28, 1999: In Yemen, a car bomb killed 6, injuring 12. The American Boy Scouts claimed credit. No, actually it was the Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan who were irresponsible.
- August 30, 1999: Doing what they did best, in Gaza, HAMAS bludgeoned 2 Israeli hikers to death.
- August 30, 1999: Showing that HAMAS Palestinians weren't welcome unless they were killing Jews in Israel, the HAMAS' offices were closed in Jordan and warrants were issued for the arrest of 4 leaders. 15 Palestinians were actually arrested.
- August 30, 1999: The final and painful chapter of the genocide perpetrated on East Timor Christians by Indonesian Muslims begins on this day. By an 80% majority, the Roman Catholic population voted for independence in a United Nation's sponsored referendum.
As you may recall from the November 28, 1975 and November 12, 1991 East Timor presentations in the Islamic Terrorism Timeline, Islamic Indonesia murdered nearly 250,000 civilians - 90% of whom were Roman Catholics - during the late ‘70s, ‘80s, and early ‘90s using American weapons. While only four percent of the population of East Timor is Islamic, it didn't matter to the ruthless Islamic regime. East Timor Christians would surrender to Islam or die.
America had done everything it could to support the Indonesian Muslims against the Christian Timorese, but ultimately Islam failed. So in August of 1999 the United Nations, again against America's wishes, held a referendum in East Timor in which the people voted overwhelmingly for independence from Islamic Indonesia.
But between the referendum and the arrival of a multinational peacekeeping force in late September 1999, anti-independence Muslim militias - organized, supported, and joined by the Indonesian military - commenced a large-scale, scorched-earth campaign of retribution. The militias, composed mostly of Jamaah Islamiyah terrorists (See July 16, 2000), killed approximately 1,400 Timorese and forcibly pushed 300,000 people (40% of the population at that time) into West Timor as refugees. Over 70% of the country's infrastructure, including homes, irrigation systems, water supply systems, and schools, and nearly 100% of the country's electrical grid were destroyed by the militant Muslims.
Three weeks later, on the 20th of September, the Australians stepped up and supplied troops to the International Force for East Timor and the violence finally came to an end. What was particularly sad, however, was that this scorched-earth campaign was made possible because Bill Clinton refused to support the U.N. mandate for peacekeepers, knowing that this would displease the oil-drenched Islamic OPECers in Indonesia.
The UN Mission gave this appraisal on September 11th, 1999: "The evidence for a direct link between the militia and the military is beyond any dispute and has been overwhelmingly documented by the UN over the last four months. But the scale and thoroughness of the destruction of East Timor in the past week has demonstrated a new level of open participation of the military in the implementation of what was previously a more veiled operation." The United Nations warned: "The worst may be yet to come. It cannot be ruled out that these are the first stages of a genocidal campaign to stamp out East Timor by force.".
Indonesia historian John Roosa, an official observer of the vote, described the situation starkly: "Given that the assault was so predictable, it was easily preventable. But in the weeks before the ballot, the Clinton Administration refused to discuss with Australia and other countries the formation of an international peacekeeping force. Even after the violence erupted, the Administration dithered for days, until compelled by Australian and domestic pressure to make some timid gestures. Yet since Indonesia wielded American weapons of war, even this ambiguous and timid message sufficed to induce the Indonesian generals to reverse course and to accept an international presence, illustrating the latent power that has always been at hand." In other words, at any point along the way, had America so much as threatened Indonesia with a reduction of aid or arms the Muslims would not have murdered a quarter of a million Christians.
Roosa went on to say, "While Clinton dithers, almost half the population has been expelled from their homes according to UN estimates, and thousands more have been murdered. The American Air Force that was able to carry out pin-point destruction of civilian targets in Novi Sad, Belgrade, and Ponceva lacked the capacity to drop food to people facing starvation in the mountains to which they had been driven by the terror inflicted upon them by the army trained and equipped by the United States.".
The Indonesian historian went on to say: "The recent events will evoke bitter memories among those who do not prefer intentional ignorance. We are witnessing a shameful replay of events of 20 years ago. After carrying out a huge slaughter in 1977-78 with the decisive support of the Carter Administration, Indonesia felt confident enough to permit a brief visit by members of the Jakarta diplomatic corps, among them U.S. Ambassador Edward Masters. They recognized that an enormous humanitarian catastrophe had been created.".
The aftermath was described by Benedict Anderson, one of the most distinguished Indonesian scholars. "For nine long months of starvation and terror," Anderson testified at the United Nations, "American Ambassador Edward Masters deliberately refrained, even within the walls of the State Department, from proposing humanitarian aid to East Timor, waiting until the generals in Jakarta gave him the green light - until they felt secure enough to permit foreign visitors. It is all recorded in an internal State Department document now made public. Only then did Washington consider taking some steps to deal with the consequences of its actions.".
As Indonesian forces and their Jamaah Islamiyah terrorist accomplices were burning down the capital city of Dili in September 1999, murdering and rampaging with renewed intensity, the Pentagon announced that "a U.S.-Indonesian training exercise focused on humanitarian and disaster relief activities concluded on August 25th," That was five days before the referendum.
A few months before the conclusion of the "humanitarian training exercises" of August 1999 dozens of refugees who had taken shelter in a Church in Liquica were massacred. Admiral Dennis Blair, U.S. Pacific Commander, assured the Islamic Indonesian General Wiranto of U.S. support and assistance, proposing a new U.S. training mission.
The New York Times reported: "The Clinton Administration has made the calculation that the United States must advance its relationship with Indonesia, a mineral-rich nation of more than 200 million people, ahead of its concern over the political fate of East Timor, a tiny impoverished territory of 800,000 people that is seeking independence." Douglas Paal, president of the Asia Pacific Policy Center, said: "Timor is a speed bump on the road to dealing with Jakarta, and we've got to get over it safely. Indonesia is central to the stability of the region.".
When Indonesia's interim president Habibie called for a referendum with a choice between incorporation within Indonesia or independence, the Indonesian Army moved instantly to influence the outcome by terror and intimidation. In the months leading to the August referendum, 5,000 Timorese were killed - more than twice the number of fatalities that prompted the NATO bombing in Kosovo, and five times the number relative to population. The terror was widespread and sadistic, intended as a warning of the fate awaiting those foolhardy enough to disregard the orders of the occupying army.
When 80% chose independence, Islamic atrocities escalated geometrically in a savage campaign to reverse the outcome by slaughter and expulsion, reducing much of the country to ashes. Within two weeks another 10,000 Timorese lost their lives according to Bishop Carlos Filipe Belo, the Nobel Peace laureate who was driven from his country under a hail of bullets. Even his house was burned down while the refugees he was sheltering there dispatched to an uncertain fate.
Even before Habibie's call for a referendum, recognizing that they were going to lose, the Indonesian Army began the process of destroying nation. These plans were known to Western intelligence. More ominously, the Islamic military command sent units of its U.S.-trained Kopassus Special Forces, along with senior military adviser, General Makarim, a U.S.-trained intelligence specialist with a reputation for callous violence.
"These forces and this man were legendary for their cruelty," Benedict Anderson observed. "They were the exemplar for every kind of atrocity, including systematic rapes, tortures and executions, all perpetrated by gangs of hooded militants.".
- September 3, 1999: Argentina issued a warrant for Hizballah leader, Imad Mughniyah. He was also involved in the Israeli Embassy bombing.
- September 4, 1999: In a terrorist attack linked to Chechen Muslims, a bombing of an apartment in Dagestan killed 64 people.
Soviet Islam had its roots deeply planted in the IRP, or Islamic Renaissance Party, an revisionist organization backed by the Communists to keep the Wahhabis at bay. Even more popular was the Popular Front in the Name of Imam Shamil which was founded by an Islamic oligarch. Turkish Muslims allied under the Birlik, or Unity, Party. Many Muslims joined the Sadval, which would go on to seize the Lezgin district in Azergaijan, annexing it to Dagestan. The Dadval were committed to terrorism, especially in Armenia, where non-Muslims claimed the Islamicists were trained by the Russian KGB.
By 1990 the IRP migrated toward fundamentalist Islam and started leading demonstrations which inspired many in the Caucasus (from a word meaning "Gog's Fort") to divorce the Soviet-style atheist "Islam" and accept salafi, traditional beliefs. The IRP was soon labeled Wahhabi, in large part because it became clear they were being financed by the Sauds. Mosques were constructed and imams were educated with OPEC money.
A Wahhabi IRP stronghold soon formed in Dagestan. They implemented Sharia Law and deployed Wahhabi Moral Militias, akin to the Egyptian Religious Police. These self-righteous mobs, akin to the Nazi Gestapo, roamed the streets of Dagestan, terrorizing anyone who wouldn't submit to their repressive religious rules.
By 1998, fundamentalist Islam was firmly rooted in Dagestan by way of Chechnya. Bombings under the slogan "the Sword of Islam" became commonplace as Chechen and Dagestani Islamists conducted unified raids as "the Nation of Islam." The IRP, now led by Bahauddin Kebedov, was growing to control many villages. And to keep things in perspective, outside of Moscow and what was then Leningrad, Russia was a third world slum. Towns I visited in Uzbekistan had few paved streets and no indoor plumbing.
In December 1998, Dagestan adopted a new law regarding religion, placing all religious communities less than 15 years old under state control. This included their publishers, printing houses, and book imports. Religious movements, which were considered "dangerous," were not allowed to hold meetings or to build churches, synagogues, or mosques. The repressive leadership of the Russian Federation also used these religion laws to preclude Evangelical or Protestant Christians from competing with the politically supportive, but spiritually dead, Russian Orthodox Church. As these religious (actually political) laws went into effect, an opposition Islamic newspaper was banned on the basis that it was claimed Wahhabist and thus terrorist.
Under religious oppression, Dagestan followed the same path Uzbekistan had taken earlier. Muslims became more fundamentalist, and thus terroristic. The Wahhabis migrated from "piety" to jihad. Dagestan, now called the Caucasian Babylon, fell further into poverty and sunk deeper into the darkness of corruption and crime.
Moscow and the Muslims were now on a collision course and both sides acted badly. Violence became common and truth a rare. The Muslims promoted war and Vladimir Putin vowed to destroy them.
In the Wahhabi villages, the Muslim clerics declared Dagestan an Islamic Republic. As a result, the Russians isolated and then bombed the Chechen villages. During this time the Chechens themselves became engaged in a civil war between secularists and Islamicists. It was in this cesspool of politics and religion that the Dagestan apartment building was bombed by militant Muslims. It would only be the beginning.
- September 5, 1999: In Israel, car explosions in Tiberias and in Haifa killed 3.
- September 13, 1999: In Russia, the death toll from another apartment block bombing in Dagestan killed 188.
- September 15, 1999: The Islamic "Dagestan Liberation Army" claimed responsibility for a third apartment bombing, this one in Moscow.
- September 15, 1999: In France, five Islamic GIA members were sentenced to 19 years for bombings that occurred in Paris in four years earlier.
- September 16, 1999: In Turkey, Mahrez Amduni, one of bin Laden's associates, was detained at the Istanbul airport, but later released.
- September 18, 1999: Showing that he could be fair, Osama bin Laden declared jihad against India in addition to the Saudi warlords, Israel, and America.
- September 21, 1999: In Israel, a Muslim Arab confessed to plotting the most recent HAMAS bus bombings. Another Palestinian admitted to having murdered the hikers in Gaza.
- September 22, 1999: In Jordan, two HAMAS leaders, Mashall and Ghosheh, were arrested on their return after visit abroad. A third, Abu Marzuq, was denied entry.
- October 8, 1999: Khalfan Khamis Muhammad was arrested in South Africa, flown to New York, and charged in relation to the Tanzania bombing of the U.S. Embassy. As I have said before, there are way too many Muhammads.
- October 15, 1999: In the United States, Siddig Ali received 11 years for his role in the plot to blow up the UN and other landmarks in New York.
- October 15, 1999: Personalizing the cause of terrorism rather than grasping the nature of the political and religious system that deploys the tactic, the U.N. ordered the Taliban to turn over Osama bin Laden. Had the Taliban done so, 3,000 people would still have died on 9/11. Jihadists would be no less murderous anywhere in the world because the problem isn't al-Qaeda and the enemy isn't terrorism.
- October 17, 1999: In Yemen, the Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan leader, Zein al-Mehdar, was executed for kidnapping and killing Westerners. You can't make money if you kill your customers.
- October 19, 1999: Egyptian Air flight 838 from Istanbul to Cairo was hijacked over Turkey and flown to Hamburg, Germany. The hijacker was arrested after he was promised asylum, and then freed.
It should be noted that Muhammad Atta, the mastermind and leader of the 9/11 suicide bombing plot that killed 3,000 Americans, and many of his collaborators, were attending the al-Kod mosque in Hamburg, Germany at this time.
- October 22, 1999: Egypt closed the Cairo office of the Abu Nidal terrorist club, seizing the group's bank accounts. If they closed the offices, it meant that for a decade or more, one of the world's most murderous organizations - one that had killed Americans - was headquartered in Egypt.
- October 23, 1999: In India, a bomb injured 20 in a market in Kashmir. Muslim militants were blamed.
- October 28, 1999: Abu-Alynen, Fatah's commander since 1993, was sentenced to death for forming militant Muslim militias.
- October 28, 1999: In Kashmir, a Harakat ul-Mujahideen Islamic grenade attack on government offices killed 3, injuring 16 Indian officials.
- October 31, 1999: Egypt Air Flight 990 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Nantucket Island. The last minutes of the flight were reconstructed from cockpit audio and data recorders. The NTSB concluded that the First Officer shut the engines down and put the plane into a nosedive. He repeated "Tawakkalt Ala Allah," meaning, "I rely on Allah" over and over again.
The "normal" prayer recited by a Muslim as he or she is terrorizing and murdering infidels is "Allahu Akbar." It means: "Allah is the Greatest," or "Allah is the Most Great." Muhammad called it the "Islamic Prayer of Fear," and he used to say it every time he terrorized, plundered, raped, enslaved, and or murdered innocent people.
"Allahu Akbar," like "Tawakkalt ala Allah," remains a dual confession. By repeating it, as most every Muslim murderer does before and during their terrorist acts, they are confessing to the crime. They, like the Muslim goons who hijacked the four passenger jets on 9/11, are telling us that they are good Muslims killing for Allah. They are telling us that they are following Muhammad's example.
Second, Allah is telling us that he is Satan. God's name is Yahweh. And since the only spirit possessed with the ambition of being greater than Yahweh is the Satan, Allah's nature has been revealed.
This is literally the defining line between understanding the connection between Islam and terrorism and missing it completely. If "Allahu Akbar" is the Islamic Prayer of Fear, and if Muhammad, Islam's lone prophet, shouted it during terrorist raids just as his followers do today as they terrorize the world, Muhammad, Allah, Islam, and Muslims are the enemy. It is as simple as that.
Let me set the scene as I provide overwhelming proof. We are in the seventh year of the Islamic Era. It began with Islam's lone prophet, without provocation, leading a terrorist raid to torment and plunder a Jewish community - the fourth in as many years. Al-Tabari, Islam's earliest historian and the first Muslim to compose a Qur'an commentary, reported in Volume VIII, page 116 of his Ta'rikh the text the same Hadith, or Oral Report from the Prophet and his Companions, that ibn Ishaq, Muhammad's first biographer chronicled on page 510 of the Sira: "After his return from Hudaybiyah, Allah's Messenger marched against Khaybar. He halted with his army in a valley between the people of Khaybar and the Ghatafan tribe to prevent the latter from assisting the Jews.".
The motivation for the attack on the Khaybar Jews was obvious. Muhammad's militant and mercenary horde was up in arms over his capitulation at Hudaybiyah - the ten year pact Allah's Messenger had made to stop terrorizing and plundering his hometown. While Muhammad would disavow the treaty of Hudaybiyah the following year, and conquer Mecca, the militants who had marched out with him wanted babes, blood, and booty, not peace. Out of control, they would have turned against their warlord prophet had he not found a defenseless target.
For those who think this conclusion is unfair and overly cynical, consider the facts. When the Muslims failed to capture the first Meccan caravan they attacked at Badr, the prophet stole property and possessions of the Qaynuqa Jews. Following the Uhud defeat, he immediately plundered the Nadir Jews. The siege of the Trench was not only the third in a series of four battles without booty; it was also bloodless. So Islam's demented dictator provided slaughter, sex, and spoil by murdering, enslaving, and robbing the Qurayza Jews. The Jews had become easy prey. So following the booty-less and bloodless "peace" of Hudaybiyah, Muhammad set out to terrorize the only Jewish community within reach that he hadn't previously sacked and plundered - Khaybar. It was their turn to feel the wrath of Islam.
Incidentally, neither Allah, Muhammad, Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, nor Muslim (the last two individuals being the first to compile topical Hadith collections) made any attempt to justify Islam's ruthless assault on the Khaybar Jews. They knew the truth and didn't try to disguise it. Islam was no longer a religion; it was a terrorist dogma. The first Muslims weren't disciples; they were mercenaries. Muhammad wasn't a prophet; he was a pirate. Allah wasn't a god; he was the Devil incarnate. And together, they were about to prove that they were a blight on humankind.
As transparent as ever, these words, directly from Muhammad's lips, suggest that he was working for the Prince and the Power of the Air, the Lord of Devils, the Prince of Darkness, the Great Deceiver, the Adversary - Satan. "When the Apostle looked down on Khaybar he told his Companions, ‘O Allah, Lord of the heavens and what they overshadow, and Lord of the Devils and what into error they throw, and Lord of the winds and what they winnow, we ask Thee for the booty of this town and its people. We take refuge in Thee from its evil and the evil of its people. Forward in the name of Allah.' He used to say this of every town he raided." (Ishaq:510) Islam's lone prophet announced his intent. He was there to plunder this town and its people.
For Muhammad's religion of submission to succeed, good and evil had to be redefined so that the good people of Khaybar, who were just going about their lives trying to make an honest living, had to be called "evil." And the bad terrorist thugs lurking in the hills above them, armed to the teeth and ready to pounce on the on the unsuspecting village, murdering, enslaving, robbing, and raping, had to be called "good."
I want you to read this next passage slowly and thoughtfully. It comes from the only biographical portrayal of Muhammad's life, and the historical account of Islam's formation, written within 200 years of this perverted prophet's death. From Islam's perspective, the Sira is the gospel. "When the Apostle raided a people he waited until morning, and then he attacked. We came to Khaybar by night. When morning came and he did not hear the call to prayer, he rode and we rode with him. We met the workers of Khaybar coming out in the morning with their spades and baskets. When they saw the Prophet and our army they cried, ‘Muhammad with his force.' They turned tail and fled. The Apostle yelled, ‘Allahu Akbar! Khaybar is destroyed.' When we arrive at a people's square, it is a bad morning for them." (Ishaq:511).
All of the deceptions, justifications, and apologies ever spoken would be insufficient to make this horrible day appear religious. And it does not stand alone. Khaybar was but one of seventy-five merciless raids instigated by the first Muslims. Armed raiders attacked civilians for no other reason than to seize their possessions. "Allahu Akbar!" was the terrorists' "Prayer of Fear." It is the same prayer all of the 9/11 suicide bombers yelled as they murdered 3,000 Americans.
These are not my words. This is not my interpretation of Islam. Ibn Ishaq's compilation of Islamic scripture - the inspired Sira, or biography of the prophet - is the earliest and most accurate accounting of Muhammad's life and of the formation of Islam. It was compiled a century before Tabari, Muslim, and Bukhari - the next earliest sources. But for those who might want to dismiss Ishaq's Hadith report on the basis that it sounds too condemning of the prophet, consider these confirming words from imam Bukhari. Of his collection, Islamic sages wrote: "Second only to the Qur'an, Bukhari's Hadith is the most important book in Islam." He reports in Volume 5, Book 59, the Book of Jihad, Number 510: "Allah's Apostle reached Khaybar at night. It was his habit that, whenever he reached an enemy at night, he would not attack them till it was morning. When morning came, the Jews came out with their spades and baskets. When they saw the Prophet, they said, ‘Muhammad! O dear God! It's Muhammad and his army!' The Prophet shouted, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a nation, evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.'".
The more you know, the worse it gets. This is why Islamic leaders must keep good people from reading these words. It is why they lie to themselves, to our citizens, the media, and politicians alike. Islam is self destructive, mutilating its own credibility.
The Hadith said Muhammad made a "habit" of this perverse behavior. The Jews were his enemy, although none had lifted a finger in violence towards him. The Jews were farmers, going to work with gardening tools, and yet Muhammad led a surprise "attack" against them with his "army." He professed "destruction," not salvation. But it's his last line that's especially haunting. With Islam, the nations of the world are approached by "evil."
Muhammad's ruthless terror campaign against the townships of Qurayza and Khaybar was worse than Osama bin Laden's assault on New York and Washington. The first Islamic terrorist was more destructive, savage, and sadistic than his later-day incarnations in the Taliban, Hezbollah, HAMAS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Black_September, Jemaah Islamiyah, al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, al-Qaeda, and Islamic Jihad. And Muslims know it. In their media, in their mosques, and in their madrassa, they compel young boys and girls to follow Muhammad's example. When they bomb our buildings, blow holes in our ships, hijack our planes, and kidnap our people, they doing what their prophet did. Islam cannot be fixed; it cannot be reformed. Islam cannot coexist with civilized people. It is a terrible disease. Through indoctrination Islam destroys Muslim minds, corroding them. By way of its grotesque immorality and criminal nature it attacks Muslim hearts, corrupting them. Worst of all, by way of deceit and deception Islam beguiles Muslim souls, damning them.
To add insult to injury, Bukhari noted: "The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaybar when it was still dark. He said, ‘Allahu-Akbar!' Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a hostile nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.' Then the inhabitants of Khaybar came out running on their roads. The Prophet had their men killed; their children and woman were taken as captives." (Bukhari:V5B59N512).
Calling the Jews a hostile nation is a farce. Muhammad and his Muslim militants, according to their own accounting, had either murdered, terrorized, enslaved, or raped tens-of-thousands of Jews yet the Jews had killed but one Muslim. Even that was self defense, allegedly occurring during the Islamic siege of the Qurayza.
The warning these Jews were given before evil befell them was no different than Muslims provide today. All Islamic terrorists shout: "Allahu Akbar" before they slaughter innocents. By proclaiming the Prayer of Fear, Islamic terrorists tell us who they are, what they believe, who they serve, and why they kill.
There is nothing Islam could do to make their terrorist nature more obvious. "When Allah's Apostle fought the battle of Khaybar, or when he raided any other people, we raised their voices crying, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped except Allah.' On that Allah's Apostle said, ‘Lower your voices, for you are not calling a deaf or an absent one, but a Hearer Who is with you.' On that he said to me, ‘O Abdallah, shall I tell you a sentence which is one of the treasures of Paradise?' I said, ‘Yes, O Allah's Apostle! Let my father and mother be sacrificed for your sake.' He said, ‘It is: There is neither might nor power but with Allah.'" (Bukhari:V5B59N516) Yes, it is true, every time Muslim murderers are gathered to mutilate innocent people, Satan is with them.
This next Hadith can be found in the Sira and Ta'rikh: "So Muhammad began seizing their herds and their property bit by bit. He conquered Khaybar home by home. The first stronghold defeated was Naim. Next was Qamus, the community of Abi Huqayq. The Messenger took some of its people captive, including Safiyah bt. Huyayy, the wife of Kinanah and her two cousins. The Prophet chose Safiyah for himself." (Tabari VIII:116 & Ishaq:511) Perverted is too kind a word for this man and his religion. Muhammad became the first serial rapist to call himself a prophet. And make no mistake; he chose to rape Safiyah. That is what having sex with a captive is.
"Dihyah had asked the Messenger for Safiyah when the Prophet chose her for himself. Muhammad gave Dihyah her two cousins instead." (Tabari VIII:117). It was a two for one deal. Safiyah must have been real cute. "When Dihyah protested, wanting to keep Safiyah for himself, the Apostle traded for Safiyah by giving Dihyah her two cousins. The women of Khaybar were distributed among the Muslims." (Ishaq:511) Muhammad had men killed so that he could have sex with their wives and daughters. He traded human beings. And the "prophet" rewarded his Muslim militants by distributing the remaining women among them.
"The Prophet had their men killed, their children and woman taken as captives. Safiyah was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dihyah but later on she came to belong to the Prophet. Muhammad made her manumission as her ‘Mahr .'" (Bukhari:V5B59N512) Translated into common English, Muhammad performed some Islamic hocus pocus to make nonconsensual sex seem moral. And that's all Islam was really. It was just an act - an Oscar winning performance by one of the great con artists of all time. The Bukhari Tradition winds down with these words: "The captives of Khaybar were divided among the Muslims. Then the Messenger began taking the homes and property that were closest to him.".
In some of the most despicable words ever scribed in the name of religion, the Sira and Ta'rikh reveal: "Ali struck a Jew with a swift blow that split his helmet, neck protector, and head, landing in his rear teeth. And the Muslims entered the city. Muhammad conquered Qamus, the neighborhood of Abi Huqayq. Safiyah bt. Huyayy was brought to him, and another woman with her. Bilal led them past some of the Jews we had slain including the woman's dead husband. When she saw them, the woman with Safiyah cried out, slapped her face, and poured dust on her head. When Allah's Prophet saw her, he said, ‘Take this she-devil away from me!'" (Tabari VIII:121 & Ishaq:515) Grieving for those who had been butchered as a result of Islam was beyond Muhammad. This woman cried as she was dragged past the mutilated corpses of her family and friends. Yet the man who had led the terrorist raid so that he could steal their possessions called the victim a "devil." It is like Muslims calling America "the Great Satan" today.
I dare say that when you began this journey into the crude timeline of Islamic terror, you did not expect Islam to be this bad. This is a special kind of evil. Muhammad terrorized, plundered, and murdered while professing to be God's Messenger. That, in my opinion, made him the most wretched man to have ever lived.
Yes, I know that the Crusades and Inquisition were brutal, and that Protestantism was born out of a lust for power, sex, and money, but it's not the same - not even remotely. The clerics and kings that conspired together to control their subjects, hid the Bible and perverted its message. They were misguided hypocrites who used religion to satiate their own cravings. Muhammad, by contrast, claimed to speak for God. He didn't corrupt Islam - he made Islam as perverted as the spirit that possessed him.
Therefore, Muhammad's legacy haunts us today. It pains me beyond words to look into the eyes of a Muslim woman or child trapped in Islam. There is almost no way to reach them. And if this tortures my soul, what must it do to our Creator? Islam, the curse of Muhammad, has damned over two billion men and women. It has left nothing but death and destruction, poverty and despair, persecution and indoctrination, terror and deceit in its wake. Muhammad was the Prophet of Doom.
This perverted beast of a man was now totally out of control. "Muhammad commanded that Safiyah should be kept behind him and he threw his cloak over her. Thus the Muslims knew that he had chosen her for himself." (Tabari VIII:122 & Ishaq:515)
Moving on with the saga of the only "religion" to be born in a milieu of grotesque immorality, piracy, and terror we are about to add torture to its list of hate crimes. "Abi Huqayq held the treasure of the Nadir . He was brought to Allah's Messenger, and he questioned him. But Huqayq denied knowing where it was. So the Prophet questioned other Jews. One said, ‘I have seen Kinanah walk around a ruin.' Muhammad had Kinanah brought to him and said, ‘Do you know that if we find it, I shall kill you.' ‘Yes,' Kinanah answered." (Tabari VIII:122 & Ishaq:515) This was Muhammad's second assault on the Nadir. He had stolen their homes, businesses, and land the year after he banished the Qaynuqa, a year before he slaughtered the Qurayza. All the Nadir had left was what they had been able to carry on their backs.
And remember, this accounting of events is from the Islamic Hadith. There is no other source of information from which a different impression may be drawn. Not a word concerning this man's life or deeds was chronicled within 250 years of his death apart from these books. Therefore, the Muhammad of Islam, the first Muslims, and the formation of the religion are just as you are seeing them here. Alternate theories have nothing to stand on.
With each act of violence, Islam's lone prophet became more gluttonous, callous, heinous, and ultimately, insane. "The Prophet commanded that the ruin should be dug up. Some treasure was extracted from it. Then Muhammad asked Kinanah for the rest. He refused to surrender it; so Allah's Messenger gave orders concerning him to Zubayr, saying, ‘Torture him until you root out and extract what he has. So Zubayr kindled a fire on Kinanah's chest, twirling it with his firestick until Kinanah was near death. Then the Messenger gave him to Maslamah, who beheaded him." (Tabari VIII:122 & Ishaq:515)
Torturing a man whose home and property he had stolen twice, and whose wife he was about to rape, demoted Muhammad from a bloodthirsty terrorist and pirate to a demonic sadist. Anyone who promotes Muhammad's verbal diarrhea as scripture, Muhammad's life as exemplary, or Muhammad's war manifesto as a peaceful religion, is no better than the degenerate who began it all simply to satiate his cravings.
It's time we shed our ignorance, and admit the truth about Islam. Three score and three years ago, Pearl Harbor was a wakeup call. America correctly identified the enemy and declared war on Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany. Had the nation, in the aftermath of the September 11th bombings of New York and Washington, protected its citizens by declaring war on fundamental Islam for having perpetrated that attack, the world would have been safer today. By defending ourselves intelligently against those who attacked us, the legal context for rebuking the hateful and violent religotic of Islam would have been established, as well as the ability to legally silence the deadly doctrine's most vocal advocates.
Under those circumstances, anyone guilty of seducing lost souls, be it in the media, madras or mosque, into the clutches of this poligious dogma could have been identified and punished. Ignoring Islam and going after al-Qaeda is akin to targeting Hitler's S.S. instead of Nazism, or targeting Kamikazes instead of the belief system that turned them into suicidal killing machines. If we continue to fight the symptoms of this disease, like the fascist Baath party in Iraq and organizations like al-Qaeda, the real villain - Islam - will manufacture more terrorists than the world can endure. And while I do not advocate murder, the most compassionate thing we could do is to silence, sideline, and defang Islamic clerics and warlords in the context of a justifiable defensive campaign to prevent them from sending thousands, if not millions, to their doom.
Considering the nature of their prophet, it should be no surprise that the Islamic world is such a mess."When we reached Khaybar, Muhammad said that Allah had enabled him to conquer them. It was then that the beauty of Safiyah was described to him. Her husband had been killed , so Allah's Apostle selected her for himself. He took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad where her menses were over and he took her for his wife, consummating his marriage to her, and forcing her to wear the veil.'" (Bukhari:V4B52N143/V5B59N523) Muhammad had savagely murdered Safiyah's father, tortured her husband, and killed her brother. He had terrorized and pillaged her town, enslaving every woman and child. Safiyah was not Muhammad's wife; she was one of his many victims.
She had become one of this perverse man's possessions: "The Muslims said among themselves, ‘Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive and one of his possessions?'" (Bukhari:V5B59N524) Muhammad was guilty of every sex crime known to man: pedophilia, incest, rape, polygamy, adultery, womanizing, fornication, sexism, and abetting prostitution. Worst of all, he rewarded his mercenaries by dividing captured young girls among them. It's little wonder his Qur'anic paradise was so perverted.
The Sira reports: "When the Apostle married Safiyah on his way out of town, she was beautified and combed, putting her in a fitting state for the Messenger. The Apostle passed the night with her in his tent. Abu Ayyub, girt with his sword, guarded the Apostle, going round the tent until he saw him emerge in the morning. Abu said, ‘I was afraid for you with this woman for you have killed her father, her husband, and her people." (Ishaq:517) As an interesting aside, Safiyah, like the Jewish Juwayriyah (the sex slave before her), bore the identity of her God in her name.
Imagine for a moment, being Safiyah. It shouldn't be hard to do because in a very real sense the entire world is being raped by Muhammad. You awaken one morning to find a gang of godless goons prowling the outskirts of your town. After rattling their sabers, you witness thousands of them performing a prostration "prayer." You recognize them, for they are the same men who terrorized you before. Their bone-chilling shouts of "Allahu Akbar" pierce your soul. Before you can run, the Muslim mercenaries swarm at you from every direction. They continue to howl as one decapitates your father; they torture your husband, building a fire on his chest, ultimately decapitating him, too. They murder your brothers. Then they shackle your cousins, hauling them away to become sex slaves. They ransack your home and strip the clothes off your family as they lay dying, all in a frenzied quest for booty and in service to their demonic god.
Hiding behind a door, you're terrified. Then it happens. One of the Muslims spots you; a crazed demonic lust explodes on his face. He knocks you down, pressing his knee against your back while he ties your hands to your neck. You can hardly breathe. It's the worst moment of your life. The filthy, lice-ridden militant fondles you, dragging you past the bloodied bodies of your neighbors; you want to cry, to scream, but nothing comes out.
Then you see Muhammad, the man you've grown to hate, the repulsive sixty-year-old animal responsible for this horror. He claims you as his "prize," tossing his cloak over your head. His words, his very presence, make your skin crawl. But as his slave you are helpless. He strips you of whatever little dignity you have left. Then he conquers your body just as he ravaged your people.
Now, consider the insanity of a man who claimed to be "the Messenger of God" raping a woman whose town he had terrorized, savaged, plundered, and enslaved. How could a man claim to be a "prophet" and yet be so demonic and sadistic, he would force a woman to have sex with him whose husband he had tortured and then beheaded, whose father he had assassinated, and whose cousins he had "given in trade" to one of his militants so that he might possess her?
The problem with Muhammad isn't that he was the most vile man who ever lived; it's his legacy. He perpetrated these heinous crimes while claiming to be "the best example," "the ideal role model," an Apostle speaking on behalf of God. This demented criminal established a new religion that has damned the souls of over two billion people; he inspired terrorism, and his legacy has led the world to the brink of global war.
In the "Prologue" of Prophet of Doom - Islam's Terrorist Dogma in Muhammad's Own Words, I shared a pair of quotes from Islamic scholars. This might be a good time to review them in context of what we have learned. What would othersise seem extreme will now appear understated. Here is what Dr. D.S. Margoliouth had to say: "The character attributed to Muhammad in the biography of Ibn Ishaq is exceedingly unfavorable. In order to gain his ends Muhammad recoils from no expedient, and he approves of similar unscrupulousness on the part of his adherents, when exercised in his interest... He organizes assassinations and wholesale massacres. His career as the tyrant of Medina is that of a robber chief whose political economy consists of securing and dividing plunder.... He is himself an unbridled libertine and encourages the same passion in his followers. For whatever he does he is prepared to plead the express authorization of his deity. It is, however, impossible to find any Islamic religious doctrine which he is not prepared to abandon in order to secure a political end. At different points in his career he abandons the unity of God and his claim to the title of Prophet. This is a disagreeable picture for the founder of a religion, and it cannot be pleaded that it is a picture drawn by an enemy."
Renan wrote: "Muslims were the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him."
