Iranian Letter an Invitation to Embrace Islam?
This is what Muslims are taught to do to people who resist Islam. The Quran teaches:
Fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war) ---- Surah 9:5
Then Surah 5:33 goes on to state the punishment of those who wage war against Allah, from execution, crucifixion, or cutting off of limbs, etc.
Muhammad, the founder of Islam, slaughtered 1000’s of people in establishing and spreading Islam. He told followers “who relinquishes his faith, kill him. I have been ordered by Allah to fight with people till they testify there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.” An infidel (a Christian or Jew) has one choice and only one in the Islamic faith---convert or be killed.
The world should recognize that Islamic terrorists are not fanatics, but devout followers of Muhammad and doing what their Islamic bible teaches them. So based on what I have read, if you do not convert then they are suppose to kill you. To a Muslim, it is Allah’s will for Islam to rule the world. The word Islam does not mean peace – it means submission. Their objective is for everyone to be in submission to them.
Islamic towers are at the highest point in every city, and the reason is for a position of physical supremacy. The book that I have been reading goes on to state why all the Islamic nations want the city of Jerusalem, etc. They believe that it was given to them. This infuriates them because if they believe that what Muhammad said is truth, Allah’s will for them to rule the earth. Therefore, if Islam does not defeat Israel, then that would mean Muhammad and the Quran were wrong. They may agree to sign a peace accord, but if they do, it will be one that is good for only seven years, and it will be for the purpose of redeveloping their army for the destruction of Israel.
Jihad (holy war) not only includes Al-Qaeda networks, but it is a world-wide campaign of violence including Arab and Islamic countries along with cooperate diverse Palestinian organizations. It was the Islamic revolution in Iran that triggered the growth of Islamic Jihad groups in the Arab countries; in the late 1970’s.
One other note, the god of Islam is totally different from the God we know. The Quran tells us that the god of Islam works with Satan and demons to lead people astray in order to populate the hell he created (Surah 6:39, 126; 32:13; 43:36-37).
So if people want to believe that Iran is offering an olive branch think again, this letter very well may be an offer to conversion to Islam and/or viewed as a truce, in order to re-group and stall time.
Iranian Letter to Bush Seen as Invitation to Embrace Islam
(CNSNews.com) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter to President Bush is essentially a call on the American leader to embrace Islam, according to an Islamic specialist and author. While some media accounts appear to view aspects of the letter as an attempt at interfaith dialogue, Robert Spencer homed in on terminology used by Ahmadinejad. In his letter, the Iranian leader asks Bush: "Do you not think that if all of us come to believe in and abide by these principles, that is, monotheism, worship of God, justice, respect for the dignity of man, belief in the Last Day, we can overcome the present problems of the world ...?" In traditional Muslim belief, Spencer wrote on his Dhimmi Watch website, "it is only Islam that guarantees" adherence to those principles. The French wire service AFP quoted Iran's hard-line Siasat-e Rooz daily as saying of the letter: "We expect the government to make the enemy understand that it should change its hostile positions, as the future belongs to Islam."
