Children and The Koran

Lessons In Cruelty



3:85 Whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

48:28 It is He Who sent forth His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may exalt it above every other religion. Allah suffices as Witness.

35:39 It is He Who made you successors in the lands. Then he who disbelieves, his unbelief will recoil upon him; and their unbelief will only increase the unbelievers in contempt in the sight of their Lord. No their unbelief will only increase the unbelievers in perdition.

Are the Saudis taking a page out of Mein Kampf by funding madrassas on the Wahhabi model around the world; schools which teach children that Islam is the master religion and all that this implies, including murder on a genocidal scale?

Hitler, in Mein Kampf, looked to the East for what he called lebensraum, literally “living space” for the master race. This living space was to be acquired through extermination, enslavement and sterilization of non-Arian races. It was the moral duty of every NAZI to ensure the survival of the master race by whatever means at his or her disposal.

Will the practitioners of the master religion, one day, with the authority granted them by the Koran as “successors in the lands” see it as their religious and moral duty to cull an overpopulated starving planet to ensure not only the survival but the supremacy of the master religion, and those who believe, until their god brings an end to His Creation?

Will this piece of entitlement dogma and lessons in cruelty lead to even greater atrocities then when it was the alleged superior race which laid claim to exclusivity of living space?

Willing Executioners

Are Islamic schools and mosques raising another generation of willing executioners unable to empathise with the people, the unbelievers, for whom Allah shows no mercy and reserves such a gruesome, painful agonizing fate?

In his book Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen presents evidence that the demonization of the Jews by the Christian churches for the alleged murder of Christ and other offences pre-disposed Germans to accept and participate in the murder of millions of Jews.

What kind of monsters is the Koran giving birth to by its relentless, unremitting insistence that unbelievers are creatures not deserving of any mercy or compassion. That unbelievers are in league with the Devil, fighting on his behalf against Allah.

4:76 Those who believe fight for the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight on behalf of the Devil. Fight then the followers of the Devil. Surely the guile of the Devil is weak.

Most parents try to protect their children from the make-believe violence on television, reminding them that it is all make-believe, and that this is not how normal, civilized people behave. In madrassas, teachers are not expected to tell the children who are memorizing the Koran under their supervision that the violence is not real or that extreme, pitiless cruelty or any kind of brutality is not acceptable when dealing with those who won’t submit to the will of Allah.

Perhaps it is time for the West to heed the advice of a woman who knows. Ayaan Hirsi Ali would restrict religious teachings to places of worship and the home so that children can get a respite from the relentless bombardment of the word of God and learn to appreciate the values inherent in a secular society free from religion’s more nefarious influence.

If nothing is done to curb this schooling in hate and sadism, what truly horrifying events are we setting in motion as the world gives rise to the next generation of Hitler-like leadership, similar to the one we find in Iran, where burning the unbelievers in an atomic fire is seen as doing God’s work on earth? Only doing what Allah would do if He were here.

I realize I may be placing too much emphasis on one preponderant aspect of the Koran, the sadism and the horrific cruelty, but that is in large part what the Koran is all about. Muslims and non-Muslims should be concerned with the impact of reading, of memorizing such violent, pitiless text on young minds.
