Guest essay by Randall A. Terry
An overview of the seven nations affected by President Trump’s travel ban vindicates his action.
Syria is in civil war, a breeding ground for ISIS. Somalia is a failed state, with kidnappings for ransom by Islamic terrorists who run much of the country. Libya is in chaos, with large swaths under the control of Muslim terrorists; Iraq has multiple cities and tens of thousands of square miles under the control of ISIS; Yemen is a continual site of Muslim terrorist attacks, with large numbers of Sunni and Shiite terrorists. Sudan has been racked by civil war (Muslim vs. Christian) for generations, with Muslim terrorists kidnapping, enslaving, or slaughtering Christians by the thousands.
Iran—with a long history of training and arming Muslims terrorists—has the dubious distinction of being a State Sponsor of Terrorism, where Mullahs help recruit, arm, and dispatch Muslim terrorists.
Yet anti-Trump forces suggest that President Trump’s efforts to protect Americans from terrorism rivals abandoning Jews at the outset of WWII. That is absurd. The nations on this list are clearly connected to Islamic terrorism. The Jews were not connected in any way to terrorism; rather, they were the victims of state sponsored terrorism from the Nazis.
The potential problem with President Trump’s Executive Order is that it may not go far enough on two counts: First, the list of nations; second, identifying the existential threat of Islam to the West.
The press is rightly pointing out that almost all the Muslim terrorist attacks in the U.S. were committed by Muslims from Pakistan, Egypt, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, and the biggest villain of all: Saudi Arabia. Most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabian Muslims, in America legally. (Saudi oil sheiks are the number one private financiers of Islamic terrorism in the world. Hence, when we debate the Keystone pipeline, with should remember that until we reach energy independence, Americans help fund Islamic terrorism American at the gas pump.)
Muslims who were in the U.S. legally, and were not from the nations on the current list, committed all the terrorist attacks in N.Y., the Pentagon, Boston, San Bernardino, and Chattanooga.
The press is making the argument – albeit, unintentionally – that if we are going to curtail the number of Muslim terror attacks in western nations, perhaps we should discuss expanding the list of nations from which immigrants are prohibited entry, or greatly limited by extreme vetting.
This leads to the next possible deficiency in the travel ban and the surrounding debate: this is NOT merely about the birth country of terrorists, but about their dedication to the violent aspects of Islam.
Islamic terrorism in America, Canada, and Europe—such as the terrorist attack Orlando—is committed by Muslims who are citizens of the countries in which they attack; they were born in those nations after their parents emigrated from a Muslim nation. A handful—such as Alton Nolan who beheaded Colleen Hufford in Oklahoma—were converts to Islam, not even born of Muslim parents.
They committed terrorism because of their allegiance to Muhammad, Allah, and the laws of Islam—or Sharia law—as it is known, not because of their allegiance to another nation.
In short, what may be the biggest problem we face with the current ban – and the debate surrounding it – is that we are avoiding a disturbing truth: Islamic terrorism is committed by Muslim terrorists. We are witnessing the violence of Islamic Sharia law.
Whether we like it or not, this is about Islam.
Islamic Sharia law states: “Jihad is a communal obligation for every able bodied man who has reached puberty…If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it.” (Sharia Law, Reliance of the Traveler, o9.1- o9.4, Pg 600, 601)
According to Islamic law, Jihad is an obligation, and Muslims are guilty of sin if they do not participate in Jihad. This is what motivates Muslims; this is what leads “peaceful Muslims” to “self radicalize.” It is part of the fiber of their religion, as delineated in their most sacred documents. (Over)
The terrifying truth – written in blood spilt by Muslim terrorists from the dawn of Islam to this day – is that Islam is a religion of the sword. (What follows is the proof from Islamic literature.)
Muhammad—the Founder of Islam—after winning the battle of Badr, gave these orders regarding hostages: “Let not one of them escape without paying a ransom or losing his head.” That is what ISIS practices with hostages: ransom, or decapitation – or conversion under extreme duress. This order came repeatedly from Muhammad himself.
When the Jews of Medina rejected Muhammad as a prophet, he ordered his followers to “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” (Ishaq 368, 369; al-Tabari, Vol 7, 97)
At Muhammad’s order, Jews were systematically slaughtered, enslaved, or exiled; their property was stolen by Muhammad and his men. “Then the apostle divided the property, wives, and children of Banu Qurayza among the Muslims…The Apostle sent some of the captive women of Banu Qurayza to the city of Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons.” (Ishaq, 466; al- Tabari, Vol 8, 39; Bukhari, Book #62, #362) This is what drives Muslim terrorists to kill Jews, and deny Israel’s right to exist.
Jewish women and girls of Arabia were frequently kept as sex slaves; Muhammad authorized this crime, and kept sex slaves for himself: “The apostle had chosen one of their women for himself, Rayhanna… And she remained with him until she died, in his power.” (Ishaq, 466; al- Tabari, Vol 8, 39) Muslim biographers do not hide the fact that Muhammad had sex slaves, they reverently delineate it: “An account of the Messenger of God’s slave concubines…They were Mariya bt. Sham’un the Copt, and Rayhanah, from Banu Qurayza.” (al-Tabari, Vol 7, 141) This is why Boko Haram and ISIS practice sexual slavery with their female captives; Muhammad did it.
The Jews were erased from Medina: “Then he killed their men, and distributed their women, children and properties among the Muslims…The Messenger of Allah turned out all the Jews of Medina…Banu Qainuqa’ and the Jews of Banu Haritha and every other Jew who was in Medina.” (Sahih Muslim, Book #019, Hadith #4364; Bukhari, Book #59, Hadith #362; Ishaq, 464-466)
Muhammad knew his use of terror contradicted Jesus, and other prophets he claimed to follow. After enslaving multitudes through war and terror, he said, “I have been given superiority over the other prophets…I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy)…spoils have been made lawful to me…” (Bukhari, Book #52, Hadith #2200; Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1062, #004, Hadith #1063) Muslim terrorists believe they too will be victorious for Islam through terror.
Muhammad said God ordered his violence: “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah…If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me…” (Sharia Law, Reliance of the Traveler, o9.1- o9.4, 599) This is why ISIS kills Christians, and burns churches to the ground – they imitate Muhammad.
These quotes are not “taken out of context.” There are hundreds of commands from Muhammad – recorded in the Haddith, the Siras, and the Qu’ran, ordering Muslims to pursue the subjugation of the earth to Islam – peacefully when possible – or violently, when Christians, Jews and pagans reject the “peaceful” call to submit to Islam. This is the script that Muslim terrorists follow.
Since it is unlikely that hundreds of millions of Christians, Jews, and pagans in Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Pacific Rim, and Africa will peacefully embrace Muhammad as “the Prophet of God,” we can expect acts of terror to stimulate our conversion, or hasten our subjugation or death.
Sadly, terrorists have not “hijacked the peaceful religion of Islam.” They are following the words and example of Muhammad, the Founder of Islam.
The defenders of President Trump’s Executive order may need to discuss the truth: Islam is at war with us. It is an ideology committed to the overthrow of western law codes, religions, and freedoms.
The day may come when Western Nations must systematically prohibit entrance to immigrants who believe in Islamic law, and want to implement Islamic Sharia law in our nations. Why? Because Islamic law and ideology – as stated by Muhammad, the Founder of Islam – is committed to world domination, and allows Muslims to decapitate hostages, slaughter Jews, enslave women, and pursue victory for Islam through terror.
The author has spent the last two years, creating a serial documentary called What Would Muhammad Do? Islamic Terrorism Explained. This gives meticulously footnoted research into the primary Islamic sources that show the true nature of Islam, as founded by Muhammad. We created an original music score, and hired voice actors, artists, and animators, and from four continents. Some of those who participated in this documentary project risked their lives to do so.
Randall Terry invites you to watch episode one of the serial documentary What Would Muhammad Do? at www.WWMD.tv at no charge. God bless you, and may God wake up our leaders to the existential threat America and the West face in Islam.
