RELIGION AND ISLAM
William G. Burmer
The New American, JBS magazine, November 8, 2010 issue Contains, beginning on Page 27, an Interview with the Reverend Elijah Abraham. This man grew up in Iraq and was a strict adherent of Islam. He explains why political compromise is not possible with Islamists.
The Interview is quite lengthy but worth reading if you have an opportunity. I want to share with you just one of several questions asked by TNA: “ Since September 11, 2001, there has been a great deal of talk about “moderate Islam” and Moderate Muslims.” Is there such a thing as a “moderate Islam” that Mohammed would have recognized as genuinely Islamic?”
REV, /ABRAHAM: “There is no such thing as “moderate Islam.” You mentioned “moderate Muslom” and you need to define what a “moderate Muslim” is. But let’s go back to “moderate Islam”: Thre is no such thing. Islam is locked on a seventh-century Arabian religion.’
‘Let me redefine Islam: Islam is not really even a religion. That’s a key point. It’s a socio-political system that uses a deity to advance its agenda. Why do you think Islam is doing what it’s doing in the West, and being allowed the freedom to do what it is doing without being confronted? Because Islam passes itself off as a religion and thus, under the Constitution of the United States, has the protection of freedom of religion and therefore the protection of a religion to exist. It the United States finally comes to its senses and acknowledges that Islam is a socio-political system---not a religion, so we need to reclassify what Islam is---then the fight is on. Then we will address Islam just like we addressed Nazism, fascism, communism, and all these ideologies.”
The interview goes on but this verifies most of our feelings regarding Islam, that it is not a true religion as our founders defined, and as I addressed in my last communication to you regarding tyranny in America.
