The Koran: A “Holy Book” or Hate Literature?

Sergei Bourachaga has written here recently about “The Koran and The Psychopathology of The Prophet” (Part I and Part II). He also has a substantial body of previous work, much of which was lost when the forum at which it was posted went down.

The author has this to say about the article posted below:

I wrote this article back in Feb 17, 2007. It was initially published on the site of the Canadian Coalition For Democracy, but due to financial problems, and threats from the Canadian Islamic Congress — the very same Islamic organizations that pressured CCD to remove from its site Part I of my article on “The Koran and The Psychopathology of The Prophet” — all my articles have disappeared.

Since your readers are interested in the nature of the so-called Holy Book, the Koran, perhaps a republication of the article might help raise the level of awareness in the West in general, and North America in particular, about the nature of Islam.

The Koran and the Jihad

The Koran: A “holy book” or hate literature?
by Sergei Bourachaga

During a speech in Toronto in late January 2007, Mr. Jim Judd — Director of The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, pointed out to his audience that despite limited successes achieved by the Canadian Army, the Canadian Intelligence community, and law enforcement agencies in neutralizing the threats of Islamic terrorism on the domestic and international arenas “… officials do not yet fully understand a crucial element in combating terrorism — the process of radicalization that can lead individuals, especially young Muslims raised in Canada and other democracies, to embrace terrorism”.

Similar comments were made in November 2006 by Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, head of Britain’s MI5 security service. In her speech she clearly indicated that “… the process of radicalization, especially of young people, was one of the biggest problems facing anti-terror investigators. Three of the four men who attacked three London subways and a red double-decker bus on July 7, 2005, were British-born”.

It seems that the epidemic that every bureaucracy suffers from -”information overload” — has forced Mr. Judd and Dame Manningham-Buller to overlook a substantial number of academic studies published since 2002, and a Pentagon briefing paper published in September 2006, titled “Motivations of Muslim Suicide Bombers”, pointing to the Koran as the main source of the pathological hatred that fills the mind and heart of every Muslim suicide bomber.

The intelligence officers behind the Pentagon study were members of CIFA — Counterintelligence Field Activity. They displayed an exceptional courage in highlighting the fact that military and law enforcement agencies mobilized to fight Islamic terrorism do not share the view of their political masters in the US government. For example, the White House has always defended the position that Muslim terrorists are a tiny minority of heretics, “…who follow a perverted interpretation of Islam and advocate the use of violence and murder against those they regard as apostates or unbelievers.”

In Western democracies a considerable segment of politicians running governmental institutions are well-known to have a strong inclination to sell their souls to the devil, if such a move provides access to the wallets of groups willing to finance generously their electoral campaigns, and thus ensure victory for the representatives of the people.

One of the most critical pieces of information Western politicians have always tried to bury under the rug is the fact that the barbarism committed by Muslim radicals has involved diverse ethnic groups of Muslim fundamentalists, from India to Israel to Indonesia to Spain to England etc… According to Mr. Hal Lindsey, an expert who wrote several books on the phenomenon of Islamic terrorism, “this reveals that there is a cohesive source that motivates all of them to commit such atrocities…The cohesive core of Islam that continues to inspire its long history of violence is the Koran and the sayings and actions of Muhammad himself”.

This assertion from a scholar who studied Islam extensively seriously undermines the arguments of presidents and prime ministers in Western democracies who, for a long list of political considerations centering on their own personal interests, cling to the myth that “Islam is a religion of peace” and the Koran is “ a holy book strictly concerned with the spiritual salvation of individuals who have embraced the principles preached by the prophet Muhammad”.

Mr. Lindsey’s position is also supported by several Turkish Muslim academics and researchers from The Centre For European Studies at Istanbul Bilgi University, who, at the end of the Pope’s visit to Turkey in 2006, commented to the Western press that “the only thing that will change the attitude of Turkey’s Muslims toward its Christians is if we take all of the school text books, including the Koran, that teach Muslim kids to hate Christians and burn them.”

These comments made by Turkish academics do not strictly apply to Turkey. In every continent of this planet, in private Muslim schools mostly funded by Saudi Arabia, Muslim children are fed the poisonous venom of hatred by the compulsory reading of “…textbooks which describe Jews as ‘apes’ and Christians as ‘pigs’“. I am sure by now Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, head of Britain’s MI5 security service, has received a report from her field officers indicating that British children as young as five are taught from racist materials at the King Fahd Academy in Acton (England). The private school is owned, funded, and managed by the government of Saudi Arabia. I am sure also that the head of MI5 was advised about the reaction of British MP Louise Ellman, who accused the school of inciting religious hatred as “…part of a deliberate Saudi initiative to install Wahhabism among Muslims in Britain”.

As far as the Canadian situation is concerned, can Mr. Jim Judd assure the average Canadian that Muslim religious leaders operating in this country are only preaching spiritual salvation to their Muslim followers? Or are they promoting hatred toward Christians and Jews to advance Wahhabism’s political agenda? The fact that in 2006 more than a dozen Muslims were arrested in Canada on terrorism-related charges makes it clear that too many mosques, run by radical extremists, are extensively using passages full of hatred from the Koran to indoctrinate young Muslims, and engage them in the global war Islam is waging against Jewish and Christian kouffar (Arabic for infidels).

Of course, decision-makers from the three levels of government in this country are not powerless in any sincere attempt directed at stopping the spread of hatred in Muslim communities by fanatics masquerading as religious leaders. We have a powerful weapon in our laws known as “Canadian Hate Laws”. Section 319.(1) states that:

Everyone who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of (a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years…

Let us dissect Section 319.(1) and start with the notion of “public place”. A mosque is a public place where hundreds are gathered to listen to a religious leader. Then let us move to the notion of “inciting hatred” in the same Section. The Koran incites hatred by demonizing and dehumanizing Christians and Jews. Because of time and space restraints, I will use few verses from well over 150 verses spread over hundreds of pages in the Koran to incite in the name of Allah acts of violence directed against Jews and Christians.

Know that we send down to the unbelievers (Jews and Christians) Devils who incite them to evil. Therefore have patience: their days are numbered. (Koran 19:87)

This verse is often chanted during the beheading rituals we often see on radical Islamic websites. For the pious Muslim beheading his defenceless hostage, it is an act of heroic proportion, because he is slaughtering the Devil incarnated in the human form of an Infidel.

Satan has gained possession of the People of The Book (Jews and Christians) and caused them to forget Allah’s warnings. They are the confederates of Satan; Satan’s confederates shall assuredly be lost in hell. The Believers are the confederates of Allah (Hizbollah); and Allah’s confederates shall surely triumph. (Koran 58:19)

Another verse recited frequently in the background of beheading rituals, to reinforce the view that by slaughtering Christians and Jews, a pious Muslim is killing Satan, not an innocent captive.

We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers (Jews and Christians). They serve other Gods for whom no sanction has been revealed. Hell shall be their home; dismal indeed is the dwelling place of the evil-doers. (Koran 3:149)

A verse often used by Wahhabist radicals to encourage Muslims to kill indiscriminately innocent children, women, and seniors attending a wedding or using the public transit system. After all, Jews and Christians worship gods that have not been sanctioned by the Allah of Islam, and they are all classified as evil-doers who shall perish in an earthly hell of Muslim design, make, and timing.

Do you fear the unbelievers (Jews and Christians)? Surely Allah is more worthy of your fear. If you are true believers make war on them; Allah will chastise them through you and humble them. He will grant you victory over them and heal the spirit of the faithful. (Koran 9:14)

A favourite passage of Hizbollah fighters in Lebanon, who with the help of Allah scored a victory against the mightiest army in The Middle East. Wahhabist preachers exploit this passage extensively to remind Muslim followers that Allah’s will for the believer is very clear; his or her primary religious duty should be to wage war on Jewish and Christian unbelievers, and thus impose on the kouffar Allah’s agenda for the salvation of humanity.

Cast into hell every hardened unbeliever, every opponent from the people of the book (Jews and Christians), and every doubting transgressor who has set up another God besides Allah. Hurl him into the fierce tormenting flames of hell. (Koran 50:21)

Jews do not worship Allah. They worship Adonai and Elohim… Christians are no better. Their Allah is known as Christ. Suicide bombers use this verse to justify the blowing up of their explosive charges on buses and in a variety of public places frequented by Jews and Christians. By becoming a shahid (Arabic for martyr) and securing a place in Allah’s heavenly kingdom, the suicide bomber is hurling his victims (hardened unbelievers) into the fierce tormenting flames of hell — the inferno created by the explosion in a confined space.

Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews… (Koran 5:82)

Believers, do not make friends with any men other than your own people. They will spare no pains to corrupt you. They desire nothing but your ruin. Their hatred is clear from what they say, but more violent is the hatred which their breasts conceal. (Koran 3:117)

For a Wahhabist the noblest religious duty is to exterminate from this planet the Jews, who have not honoured their covenant with Allah, and have refused to accept his messenger Muhammad as “The last of the monotheistic prophets”. If scholars and academics thought that Mein Kampf, written by the psychopath Adolf Hitler, was the first literature demonizing and dehumanizing Jews, they should go for an in-depth study of the Koran before making such claims.

I can go on and on ad infinitum with the verses of hatred spread over hundreds of pages in the Koran. But the key obstacle preventing law enforcement agencies from terminating the activities of radical Muslim preachers who casually disseminate the venom of hatred in their mosques is not the lack of incriminating statements made to indoctrinate young minds, and very critical for securing convictions in a court of law. The critical problem centres on the reality that law enforcement agencies cannot use hate laws in Canada to prosecute, jail, or deport radical Muslim preachers “without the consent of the Attorney General” — a politician who often dismisses Islamic fanaticism and hatred as the act of misguided naïve individuals who are experiencing difficulties adapting to the Western way of life. A politician who for the sake of political correctness refuses to believe in the math put forward by scholars and Western intelligence agencies after studying the finances and numbers of Muslim students attending Muslim madrassas (religious schools) all over the globe: “About 15% of the 1.3 billion Muslims in the world are now fundamentalists. That’s about 195 million Muslim zealots scattered over the world…” ready to cast into the fierce fire of hell Jews and Christians who for centuries have rejected the revelations of the prophet Muhammad. Only a politician willing to bury his head in the sand will consider195 million radicals as “a few” misguided individuals. Any person with a sound mind will acknowledge that 195 million Muslim zealots represent a serious threat, especially when they have openly displayed a strong commitment to ruin the Western world to perform a religious duty clearly stated in the Koran:

Leave to me those that deny this revelation. We will lead them step by step to their ruin, in ways beyond their knowledge. (Koran 68:41)

I strongly advise the citizens of Canada who genuinely love our democratic system, our values, and our way of life, to pressure politicians to monitor the hate promoted casually in places of worship, before such hatred ruins our country in ways beyond our knowledge.

this is a smart man, and lucid. Good connecting of the verses to their behavior. Now, if we can only get the mainstream media to publish this type of article. Only then will we be able to save our world.

The cohesive core of Islam that continues to inspire its long history of violence is the Koran and the sayings and actions of Muhammad himself.

This is and continues to remain the defining issue in terms of ending jihadist terrorism. There is no way to discredit the violence espoused by either the Koran or Mohammad himself without delegitimizing Islam’s most basic foundations. In Part II of his “The Koran and The Psychopathology of The Prophet”, Sergei Bourachaga cites Leone Caetani while noting that:

Caetani in very clear and explicit terms indicated that the early history of Islam could be dismissed as fabrications by later generations of Muslim authors entrusted with the task of protecting the vested interests of the ruling Caliphs. [emphasis added]

With a worldwide population of over one billion Muslims, the annual amount of zakat (tithing), that issues forth from this global body easily reaches some billions of dollars. Islam’s entrenched power structure has no intention of relinquishing its grip upon this financial windfall.

To be sure, many of Islam’s power players would risk losing everything rather than engage in the travails of actually earning a living through physical exertion. In fact, Muslim culture specifically looks down upon manual labor in a manner that precludes any notion of its clerics adopting honest work.

So, not only is there an element of “spiritual materialism” that rewards Muslims who cling to Qur’anic doctrine but the most basic vested interests of many Islamic clerics and scholars militate directly against any substantial reformation.

Discontinuing the compulsory aspect of financing jihad through zakat would eliminate a prime mover in terms of motivating Muslim charity. Further removal of any coercive language that currently abounds in Islamic scripture would only enhance this de-emphasis.

… the myth that “Islam is a religion of peace” and the Koran is “a holy book strictly concerned with the spiritual salvation of individuals who have embraced the principles preached by the prophet Muhammad”.

Again, as noted in Part II, “the spiritual salvation of individuals” clearly remains a very low priority in Islam. The major route of achieving optimal “salvation” is by conducting the most violent forms of jihad. This deals more with the self-serving interest of expanding Islam than any enlightenment or spiritual uplifting.

From Part II: Mr. [Tarek] Fatah successfully argues that the history of Islam … was nothing but a long bloody series of building brutal empires rooted in deceit and delusions, with no relevance to any sincere interest in the spiritual salvation of groups and nations who lived in the shadow of bloodthirsty Muslim rulers.

It is repeatedly shown that Islam’s doctrine of shari’a law is predominately dedicated to imposing control and exacting total obedience from Muslims. Little mention is made of seeking redemption, knowledge, reconciliation or any of the benevolent features more commonly found in other genuine faiths.

Wahhabist preachers exploit this passage extensively to remind Muslim followers that Allah’s will for the believer is very clear; his or her primary religious duty should be to wage war on Jewish and Christian unbelievers, and thus impose on the kouffar Allah’s agenda for the salvation of humanity.

The involuntary aspect of so many Islamic exhortations reveals a telling and fundamental insecurity with respect to its own self-worth. Praise for it is too often just so much applause extracted at gunpoint with little meaning to audience or performers alike.

This, among so many other wholly unacceptable tenets and practices, makes Islam repugnant to all thinking people.

Yes, and it is very instructive to note exactly what this "spiritual salvation," if attained, will consist of. If you are a Jihadist in the cause of Allah (in other words, if you spend your life MURDERING people,)
then you will be admitted into Paradise, where you will spend all of eternity drinking, eating, and having sex with 72 virgins (while bragging about your brave Jihadist deeds: blowing up pizza parlors, school buses, weddings, shooting up shopping malls, etc.)

Can you imagine a Catholic priest telling his flock: "Kill innocent, defenseless people for God and you will be rewarded with everlasting BOOZING, GLUTTONY, and WHORING!"

Uh, ... something about different cultures really are DIFFERENT.

So Heaven is a giant whorehouse that remains open for business for eternity.......hmmm...I wonder if they have GAMBLING there, too? And maybe they pass out free DOPE?


UNITED RACES and The Holy Book of Racial Government.

From London to The Shires to Britain to Europe to The World.


This is the most powerful religio-political movement for more than 3500 years, possibly. CAN YOU FEEL THIS POWER?

Islam does not mean peace. It means submission.Peace, according to Muslims, will be achieved when everyone submits to Islam.Muhammad divided the world in two sectors. One he called Dar us Salam (House of Peace) and the other, Dar al Harb (House of War). All countries, where Islam is not the ruling authority, are Dar al Harb. It is the duty of the Muslims to wage Jihad in Dar al Harb, overthrow the governments and force people into submission. This is the only kind of peace that Islam recognizes...... Islam has spread around the globe, from Bosnia to Chechnya, from the Philippines to Thailand, from Africa to Kashmir, from Londonistan to Boston and from Arabia to Australia.Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt were Christian nations before Christianity was supplanted by Political Islam. Afghanistan was Buddhist, Iran was Zoroastrian, and Pakistan was Hindu before Radical Islam consumed their civilizations and cultures.....We have two kinds of Muslims: Terrorist Muslims and ignorant Muslims. The former are those who know Islam well and live by its dictums. The latter have no clue about their religion and have an idealized image of Islam that has no bases in facts......The first thing Islam does is to destroy the self image of the believers. It convinces them that without Islam they are worthless creatures only fit for hellfire. It tells them that their culture is jahelyyah (ignorance) and their ancestral religion was taaghoti (satanic). They are made to despise their identity and selfhood and seek their glory in their submission to Islam and slavery to its deity who was Muhammad’s own alter ego. Islam has taken everything from its wretched believers. They are robbed from their identity and self pride. All they have now is Islam. That is why Islam for Muslims is more than just a religion. It is their identity. When you criticize Islam, they perceive it as an attack on their identity and cringe with pain. They take that not only as an insult but also as an assault on their person. The vast majority of Muslims do not control the direction of Islam. They are not in control of their religion.The Radical Muslims are the true Muslims that dictate and control Islam. They are the ones that fight to get what they want based on Islamic Law. Fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history as they always have. It is the fanatics who march and protest. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.This is a war. This war is not new. It is a 1400 years old war.Where is moderate Islam? Does it exist? If so, then where?We must also encourage the debate on Islam. Is Islam a religion or a political movement in the guise of religion? What is the ultimate goal of Islam? Isn’t it true that Muslims everywhere must strive to overthrow the government and establish the caliphate? How can Muslims be loyal to the country in which they live, to its democracy and constitution, and at the same time belong to a party or cult that aims to destroy that democracy and subdue that country? These questions should not be swept under the carpet. They must be discussed in open debates and Muslims must be asked to answer them. It's never too late to make a change in your life.
