The Road to Hell

61:9 It is He Who sent His Messenger forth with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it triumph over every religion ...

Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy) ... " Bukhari 52.220

Islam was never a religion of peace. Islam is the religion of fighting. No-one should believe that the war that we are waging is the war of the Islamic State. It is the war of all Muslims, but the Islamic State is spearheading it. It is the war of Muslims against infidels. There is no excuse for any Muslim not to migrate to the Islamic State ... joining is a duty on every Muslim. We are calling on you either to join or carry weapons [fight] wherever you are.

Britain Vows Crackdown after terror attack kills seven.

Christine Archibald, a young woman from British Columbia has been identified as the Canadian killed in the London attacks. Soon you may not have to travel to England to be slaughtered by the obscenely devout with the Trudeau government seemingly intent on taking us even further down the wretched path chosen by the British.

Unless you are willing to reign in the propaganda on the street, in the prisons and in the schools emboldened by legislation favouring the religious over the secular and which has proven a god-sent to a supremacist, fighting religion's recruitment efforts in the Land of War, then all is lost.

Following the July 7, 2005 London bombings which saw 52 mainly Christian commuters killed and more than 700 injured (many horribly maimed), the British Parliament passed legislation sheltering mainstream religious texts, whether the message be one of love or of hatred, from criticism.

With the new race and religious hate laws coming through [after the London bombings] it could be considered illegal if Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice is deemed an attack on a personís religious belief.

A British publisher's explanation for their change of heart after expressing a willingness to take on Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice.

The British government tried appeasement again, with predictable results. Almost from one day to the next, the country that fought a world war to preserve us from fanatics simultaneously became a more tolerant and intolerant society, more tolerant of violence-prone religious zealots and less tolerant of their critics, and the slaughter continues with no end to the escalating carnage.

Perversely, by making scriptures beyond reproach Islam is free to vilify other faiths at will for its scriptures came after and are often openly contemptuous of those which came before, the Gospels in particular.

Does the vilification of Christians in the Koran encourage their slaughter and the murder of even lesser believers who are equally maligned by scriptures which praise those who submit as the superior believers with commensurate rights over those who donít? Rights which include killing them!

Masked militants riding in three SUVs opened fire Friday on a bus packed with Coptic Christians, including many children, south of the Egyptian capital, killing at least 26 and wounding 25, the Interior Ministry said.

The Associated Press, May 26, 2017

We have to be allowed, even encouraged to talk about it. Of all human endeavors, religion has the greatest potential to change our lives for the better or for the worst. By giving all citizens the freedom to question the authenticity, the relevancy, the meaning and application of religious dogma we guard against the worst.

Unless we come to grips with the fact that it is not people, believers and non-unbelievers who are the source of the turmoil which threatens to engulf us all, but a dissonant text from the Dark Ages, there is no hope.

Motion 103 may take us even further down the abject road taken by the British, the reason for making it the focus of Boreal in 2017.
