“Moderate” Islam Is In Fact a Road to Hell

By Ted Belman

Amil Imani is a Moslem Iranian blogger living in the US. He is actively fighting for a Free Iran.

A month ago he wrote A Bridge to “Moderate” Islam Is In Fact a Road to Hell which I urge you to read in full.

But first read his Mission Statement which includes the following,

[..] Islam is a dangerous ideology. We see so many inhumane, unjust, and violent acts perpetrated by the Islamofascists around the world. Regrettably, only a small number of concerned citizens take the time to condemn the Islamic atrocities. More alarmingly, many people in liberal democracies—people we call Islam’s Useful Idiots—wittingly or unwittingly advance the work of Islamic menace.

Some well-meaning misguided people advocate negotiating with the Islamist. Yet, the only form of negotiation Muslims accept is the eventual surrender of everything that free and democratic people cherish—freedom of expression, of worship, and all other personal privileges enshrined in the United States Constitution.

My mission is to raise the clarion call about the imminent and present danger of expansionistic theocratic Islam. I, my people and my native country, Iran, have been victimized by a primitive alien ideology for far too long. Having witnessed first-hand the horrors and indignity that Islamofascism visits on people it subjugates, I have taken it upon myself to do my part in defeating this ideology of oppression, hate and violence.

I enjoy and deeply cherish the liberty that America has generously afforded me, enabling me to raise a cry from the heart regarding the tragic plight of millions of Iranian victims, my compatriots who dare not speak against the wicked mullahs and their mercenaries.

I am a voice of tens of thousands of Iran’s best children, many of them literally children, who have been imprisoned, brutally tortured, shamelessly raped and viciously slaughtered by Allah’s beasts presently ruling Iran. [..]

In his article Moderate Islam Is No Islam he writes,

[..] Nowadays we hear from the non-Muslim world about the moderate version of Islam and moderate Muslims. In my view, being a Muslim and not being radical is simply not possible. I never thought that it would be easy to reason with Muslims. They don’t understand that freedom has a price. Freedom lets a person make choices and be up-front about it. And that’s where I part with those who would prefer to be sheep and have sheepdogs hem them in.

Many non-Muslims are obviously very well-meaning with regard to Islam, but they are also extremely naïve and ignorant of the facts. They seem to think that Islam is just another religion of love and peace and Muslims should be given full freedom to practice their religion. Do they also believe that thieves, misogynists, rapists, child-molesters and any and all manner of practicing evils should be given complete carte blanche to carry on with what they value and believe? These well-meaning simpletons are just as deluded as the fanatic jihadists by refusing to acknowledge the fact that one cannot be a Muslim and not abide by the dictates of the Quran.

[..] There is no such thing as moderate Islam. There is no such thing as secular Islam or a secular Muslim. How can you possibly secularize a shark or a snake? You can’t. It’s the nature of the beast. There are numerous sects within Islam. One and all are extremes and not in the least amenable to change. Keep in mind that Islam claims that it is the perfect eternal faith for mankind. Splits have occurred and will continue to occur in Islam. Yet, reformation has not happened in nearly 1400 years and is not going to happen. Islam is carved in granite, just the way it is. No change. Allah’s book is sealed.

There are indeed some Muslims who are moderate in the way they practice their religion. These people, for the most part, are culturally Muslims. They don’t practice Islam the way it is mandated. They pick and choose. Therefore, “moderate Islam,” is no Islam at all. It is not possible. The only way to deal with the menace of real Islam, the Islamofascist varieties, is to fully dismantle it and relegate it to the confines of museums.

  1. An incredibly brave person, who needs to be supported and strengthened.

    To most Muslims, the very idea of holding ideas and objectives contrary to the Islamic way of life is an anathema, Amil is absolutely right. Islam is not a religion, it is a cult with no escape, and people are kept prisoner with threats and violence. Everybody should read Amil’s blog and write to them with support for what he is doing.
