“Islam is a Hoax”

Ex-MuslimsFor some months I’ve been aware of the German group of Muslim apostates called Zentralrats der Ex-Muslime (the Central Council of Ex-Muslims) and their motto “Wir haben abgeschworen!” (“We have abjured!”) . I haven’t reported on them previously because the site is entirely in German, I read very little German, and machine translation simply isn’t good enough.

But our Swedish correspondent LN has recently brought to our attention an international group called Apostates of Islam, which has a website in English. These are courageous people who are willing to go on the record with their real names and photographs.

Their writings could get them killed. Some examples:

…Islam is a hoax, it is hallucination of a sick mind and nothing but lies and deceits.

[…]

We are apostates of Islam. We denounce Islam as a false doctrine of hate and terror. However we are not against Muslims who are our own kin and relatives. We do not advocate hate and violence. Muslims are the main victims of Islam. Our goal is to educate them and let them see the truth. We are against Islam and not the Muslims. We strive to bring the Muslims into the fold of humanity. Eradicate Islam so our people can be liberated, so they can prosper and break away from the pillory of Islam.

Islam is a religion that thrives on the arrogant assumption that it is the most logical, the most scientific and the most perfect religion. While the fact is that it is the stupidest doctrine — the most backward and absurd belief. Once the truth about Islam becomes common knowledge, it will be weakened and the Islamic fanaticism will lose its fangs. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being expended to combat Islamic terrorism, yet no effort is made to contain the ideology behind this terrorism. It is our belief that Islamic terrorism will not be eliminated unless and until the ideology behind it is exposed and eradicated. This is what we intend to do.

Their website is designed to attract Muslims and guide them towards the renunciation of their faith. Take a look around — it’s got a lot of interesting features. A random selection from the Koran. A random selection from the Hadith. And at the “meet the apostates” page there are three links with these teasers:

  • If you are a Muslim and are hurt by seeing this page, please click here for the Alternate soft version
  • If you think this site is offensive, click here
  • I want to stop Terrorism

You’ll have to go over there and click the links to discover what their suggestions are.

Wow. These people are truly "Bravehearts" to be taking on the establishment. My hat goes off to them, but I fear they are a cry in the wilderness until their fellow muslims start to embrace life as opposed to death.

Fantastic. A movement of the spirit of truth (Gr. aletheia - 'to stop forgetting'). The trouble is the sheer number of Muslims. Given the demographic suicide of the west, it's a bit like Microsoft's waylaying and "five-finger discount" of concepts from Apple - a thousand lawyers can't be wrong.

Still, a small breach in the dike may lead to great things.

Shock treatment won't win many wavering Muslims over.

Honey, not vinegar, is traditionally more effective.

You need to charm from within, not attack.

Regret and sorrow need to be the theme, not vitiol and bitterness.

Psy ops requires some subtlety.

This will galvanize the uncertain, not weaken them.

I think that being that english is not the first language of whoever said this ..."so they can prosper and break away from the pillory of Islam..."

didn't use the word pillory correctly in that sentence.

I understand that word means to ridicule. So why would we want to break away from ridiculing Islam?

Not nitpicking just trying to point out that ridicule is a very effective weapon.

Not something to shun or discard.

Yes, they are either very brave or very foolish.

Papa Ray --

A pillory is also a set of public stocks, the kind they used to lock people into as a punishment.

It's the rough equivalent to saying "break out of the shackles of Islam".

Profitsbeard said...

Daniel Defoe's HYMN TO THE PILLORY is still worth a read.

I think this was their metaphor.

Profitsbeard said...

Here's a bit from the end of Defoe's relatively-long satirical poem:

"And thus he's an example made
To make men of their honesty afraid
That for the time to come they may
More willingly their friends betray.
"

God of the Universe says
