THE RELIGION OF PEACE – OXYMORON?

Ever wonder why there are no major motion pictures about the life and times of Muhammed, or the rise of Islam in the 7th century? There have been a few documentaries of past and present Islam, but we’re talking major motion pictures. Nor are there any movies taken from stories imbedded in the Quran.

This is the religion guiding the lives of 1.4 billion people around the globe, based on the life and messages delivered by one man 1400 years ago, yet only one major movie has been made about The Prophet titled; The Message, 1977, with Anthony Quinn who starred, not as Muhammed, but as his uncle. The accuracy of that picture is questionable, but then, Hollywood is known to take liberties with history.

Muhammed is not depicted in this, or any other movie.

A check through the International Movie Data Base reveals more than two hundred major motion pictures based on Biblical stories, twenty-four of which focus on the life and deeds of Jesus Christ, i.e., The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Passion of the Christ, The King of Kings, and etc.

More than one hundred stories of Jewish people and Jewish history have been chronicled by Hollywood producers, some overlaid within the story of Jesus.

So, why not Muhammed and the rise of 7th century Islam? It’s a great and compelling story that has a huge impact on humanity.

Answer: Fear.

The religion of peace scares the hell out of people. How’s that for an oxymoron?

Apologists will tell us that it’s a matter of respect, that the tenets of Islam do not permit any depictions of the prophet and Hollywood honors those wishes, and we should honor that. Hmm.

Here’s some examples of truth:

In 2004, Dutch film maker, Theo Van Gogh, produced a ten minute documentary about violence toward women in the Islamic world titled, Submission, which was broadcast on Dutch television. Collaborating with Van Gogh, was writer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born woman known for speaking out as an advocate for the rights of women in Islam. Van Gogh was riding his bike to work when he was shot eight times by a Muslim man, who then tried to decapitate the dead victim, and then plunged two knives into his body. He also left a note on Van Gogh’s body declaring a death threat against Hirsi Ali. The killer was unrepentant claiming it was his duty to God. Dutch police rounded up another eight Muslims who were alleged to be part of the conspiracy. Hirsi Ali went into hiding.

In 2005, a Danish newspaper published a group of cartoons depicting the prophet, Muhammed. This led to outrage among the Islamic world, sparking riots in a number of countries with a death count nearly 200 people. In Nigeria alone, it was used as an excuse to kill a hundred Christians. The artist, Kurt Westergaard, had to go into hiding. Four years later, a Muslim man broke into his home wielding an axe and a knife, swearing revenge, but Westergaard managed to escape and survive.

In 1988, British/Indian writer, Salman Rushdie, published a novel entitled The Satanic Verses which outraged the Muslim world because it depicted Muhammed in a way which contradicted the Quran. He had to go into hiding because the Ayatollah of Iran issued a fatwa (death warrant) on the author’s life.

Muslim extremists in Indonesia have threatened the life of Peter Youngrem for holding a well-advertised gospel festival in August of this year.

Dutch parliamentarian, Geert Wilders, well-known for his outspoken views on radical Islam, produced a 17-minute film in 2008 title, Fitna, about the violent verses of the Quran. Wilders has been the victim of death threats ever since, though he still continues to speak out about the dangers of Islamic expansionism while constantly looking over his shoulder. Australian fundamentalist preacher, Feiz Mohammad, has called for Wilders’ beheading.

So, it’s clear. The religion of peace is off limits to anyone who criticizes, contradicts, exposes or depicts Islam in any negative context – despite the recorded truths of history – or else!

How peaceful. It’s no wonder, then, that the history about the life of Muhammed, his “revelations,” his struggles in Mecca and successes in Medina, his death, his legacy, and the array of violent conquests of Islamic forces around the world over a period of 1400 years is off limits.

Because the religion of peace would not only be exposed, its proponents may rise up and kill anyone who offends or violates these precepts. Movie makers dare not venture in that direction unless, of course, they’re prone to sanitizing the history with absolute fiction. The best avenue of all is to let it alone, don’t stir the proverbial pot and rile the peace mongers of Islam.

In 2010, attorney/blogger, Debbie Schlussel – a Michigan native known for speaking out against the evils of radical Islam, received a series of death threats and harrowing phone calls from local Muslims promising to rape and or kill her. She reported these violation of the law to authorities, with messages and sources recorded, but Eric Holder’s Department of Justice refused to prosecute. She chronicles these atrocities on her blog. Very compelling. Here’s the link:

What about the Anthony Quinn movie, The Message? Director Moustapha Akkad ( a Muslim) had hired a staff of Islamic scholars and clerics as “technical advisors.” That answers that. Akkad, along with his daughter, was killed by a suicide bomber in Amman, Jordan in 2005.

A blog article is limited for want of space. Books have been written about the violent attachments to the so-called religion of peace. For those interestd, here are just a few author’s names to start with: Robert Spencer, David Horowitz, Steve Emerson, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Harvey Kushner, Paul Sperry.

    It is obvious what these people are about and what they are like, it has been demonstrated many times over and over. It is only a joke to believe they are associated with peace in any fashion. I wonder why the media does not exploit their actions that take place here in the USA alone….I wonder if our media is scared to these peace loving people which now infiltrate our country.

    Christianity discusses the Anti-Christ, though the time of his appearance here is never predicted in the Bible. Has that time come?

    This rise of Islam with their violence, their fanaticism, their intolerance, and their goal for world domination lends credibility and proof that the writings of the Bible are indeed true. There is no question that Islam has no intention of peacefully coexisting with other faiths, especially Christians and Jews. Virtually half of the world’s population are headed to a war with each other. The Muslims for domination. The Christians and the Jews, for existence.

    Islam is no religion. It is a political ideology with a smattering of religion thrown in to legitimize itself. There are no negotiations possible (no different than the tone out of Washington by a President who refuses to negotiate with the opposition to avert economic chaos).

    Anyone who can possibly say that a just God (Allah) would condone killing, is deranged. What hath God wrought?

    Gee, so why would President Reagan authorizing giving such people 1000 Stinger Missiles? Didn’t he sign a finding authorizing our CIA to use “all means possible” to get the Soviet Union out of Afghanistan? Just think; If he had just let the Soviets continue killing those Muslim Exremists, the Soviet Union might have civilized them all, and go on to all the other Muslim states in their realm. But no; how many Americans thought a “Holy War” against the godless Commies was a great idea? Lots. “Charlie Wilson’s War” by George Crile names them, and there are many “Christians” from all over the U.S, bringing Mullahs here to tell about the brave Afghans fighting to get those terrible Commies out of their country. Our CIA brought the Blind Sheik here-the most radical of all. A muslim, Emad Salem, warned our FBI, and they ignored him. “Triple Cross”, by Peter Lance. Our FBI knew Ayman Al Zawahiri was even in our country, and told Pres. Clinton’s aides-‘we’ve got it under control”. And you forget Bush I sent our army to save the Muslim of Kuwait from Saddam Hussein, who had established the ONLY secular state in the Mideast, where people of all religions, including Coptic Christians, lived in peace? Bush 2 finished the job of destroying the only Mideast country that supplied us with oil, when the Saudis embargoed us in the 1970’s. And the Saudis have been paying for those schools that teach children to be suicide bombers, for YEARS. One of them is the 2nd biggest stockholder of Newscorp. And all of them are good friends of the Bush family. Didn’t Reagan invite them into the War Room one night?

    It is no so much about what has happened behind me that concerns me as much as what is not happening in front of us.

    America needs to start posting “Hostile Forces” and outlawing these threats to our culture. Use the FBI “Most Wanted” program as a starting point.

    That Muslims are allowed into this country seems to be inviting a cultural cancer.

    I just read an article in a by a writer for a newspaper in Spain titled, “Spanish View of Auschwitz”.

    In a summary, the writer (Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez) commented on the number of people lost in WW II. His comment, “Europe died in Auschwitz” was a bit staggering when filled in with some facts.

    “We killed 6 million Jews in Auschwitz, we burned culture, thought, creativity, and talent, all because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.”

    He goes on, “They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime…”

    It is not a pretty picture that Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez has painted. It is a picture that is coming to America too.

    I have read many books about the Holocaust and when we went over to Europe in the beginning of the year, my husband took me to the Dachau Prison Camp where most of the religious leaders were at one time placed. I still find it very hard to write about. It was winter when we went and that gave it an even more ominous feel. It’s hard to put into words. Evil. Sadness. Death. Desperation. Those are a few adjectives that describe it. As we walked through, there are poster size mini history lessons explaining what you see. The beginning told the story about how the people were duped, how Hitler used propaganda to deceive. As we walked through, reading these snippets of info I realized it read like the last 5 years of this administration. The worse part is the rest of the snippets now are beginning to happen with the continual persecution of Christians domestically. Our military is struggling. They are being reprimanded for opinions, for their own personal beliefs and the more I see and read, the scarier it becomes. History is beginning to repeat itself and I know after seeing, smelling and touching what I experienced in that camp it doesn’t end well.

    This man definitely knows what he’s talking about and hits the nail on the head!

  17. reality October 5, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    Debbie, Most of those smiling, nice-looking people Hailing Hitler, as you can see in old films, esp. of the 1933 Olympics, were Christians. Most of the people, even today, solemnly awed by Mel Gibson’s “the Passion of Christ”, are Christian. Even today, there are many people, mostly “Christians”, who hold Jews responsible for killing Christ. The first Ghetto was in Venice, Italy, seat of the Catholic religion, in the 15th century, and all Europe long had anti-Jewish laws. The first concentration camp was in Poland, a very Catholic country. “The people were duped”, you say. Have you been duped? We just watched “Island at War”, a DVD from the Library. “The Goebbel’s Diaries” is also there, and “Black Book” is about the last days of WWII in Holland. And you do know our Military did not show up on 9/11/2001? Rumsfeld & General Myers were in the Pentagon and it was 50 minutes before they got a plane in the air, from any of at least 15 Military airfields near NYC or DC. Yet we’re still buying them fighter jets? When drones have made them obsolete?
    And “snake hunter”? you can make up any story you want about how Osama bin Laden was killed, but it didn’t happen during the 7 years Bush could have done it, with much of the same people working. President Obama loves America. Do all of you, who are so dedicated to undermining a man who put his wife and children at risk, to make our country really be the Christian country you say we are. And if you all really admire Panetta so much, have you heard him plea, over and over, for more help for our vets, esp. those who kill themselves? Yet Repubs have repeatedly cut funds for vets, and have now closed the offices that help them.

      Conveniently left out of the “reality” diatribe above it that her pal Adolf Hitler RECRUITED Muslims to help him kill Jews. MUSLIMS / ISLAM to kill Jews. Can I repeat that enough times?

      One deranged so called Christian (Hitler) RECRUITED MUSLIMS TO KILL JEWS. Something the peace loving Muslims apparently enjoyed.

      Yep – a real. Religion of Peace. Right.

      And since you brought up 9/11/01 (and what you write is a bald faced lie, btw, as fighter jets were all over NYC, DC and seen by millions), where was the military on 9-11-12? TOLD by the great Satan Obama to stand down. Yep… the big cover up of four murdered Americans still goes on.

    “Triple Cross”, by Peter Lance, is full of footnotes, and starts with Muslims on Long Island shooting AK-47’s, while our FBI watched, in 1989 or 1990. Emad Salem was a MUSLIM who risked his life to go undercover in the Blind Shiek’s NYC mosque, but the FBI “dissed” him and refused to listen. “Inside Job”, by Jim Marrs, has quotes galore from the survivors who did their own investigations, and who still never had their questions answered about almost 3000 Americans dying horribly, on our own soil,
    including at the Pentagon itself. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/09/us-consulate-benghazi-attack-challenge has info about Benghazi. 23 CIA personel were there, halfway around the world, STILL trying to buy back the 1000 Stinger missiles that Ronald Reagan gave to MUSLIMS fighting the “godless” Commies in Afghanistan.
    Why didn’t they know the consulate was going to be attacked? Why were they and the State Dept. not working together in that dangerous land? They rented separate building a mile apart? Gee, Obama should have told the Military to attack? How? drop some bombs? on who? our own people maybe, innocent civilians? And what is the point of having 17 “Intelligence” agencies with secret budgets, and the biggest Military in the world, by far, if you then have to call the president and expect him to “do something”? Just what are we paying all those generals, admirals, and the head of the CIA Petraeus, for? And why has he like disappeared from the earth? And thanks to all your insistence that Obama is a Muslim, and he and Hillary put Morsi in power, Americans are in MORE danger in the Mideast. “loose lips sink ships” WHERE is your loyalty to these United States of America?

    I e-mailed this to Marshall: Regarding the terrorist Al-Liby. He’s listed in the index of “Triple Cross”,
    by Peter Lance, starting in 1992, with 4 references.

    It’s frightening how our FBI, CIA, DIA, etc. were “played” by Ali Mohamed,
    who trained Al-Liby, and how our own fear of Communism was the
    root of what turned out to be the horrible deaths and maimings, of so many.
