The true nature of Islam, from the horse’s mouth

Getting Islam right

Getting Islam right

How is it that a Grand Ayatollah can get Islam so wrong?

Wikipedia states that ayatollahs:

are experts in Islamic studies such as jurisprudence, ethics, and philosophy and usually teach in Islamic seminaries.

Despite all that, this one seems to think that the Qur’an and Islamic doctrine require Muslims to wage war on the non-Muslim world – what a racist!

We should send Obama, Kerry and Cameron over to Iraq straight away to school this ignorant and bigoted Islamophobe in the true ‘peaceful’ nature of Islam…

During a recent televised interview with Grand Ayatollah Ahmad al-Baghdadi, the leading Shia cleric of Iraq made clear why Islam and the rest of the world can never peacefully coexist.

First he spent some time discussing “defensive jihad,” saying that all capable Muslims are obligated to fight for the “liberation” of “occupied” territory, for instance, Israel (see here for a list of European countries also deemed “occupied” in the eyes of Islam).

He then explained “offensive jihad,” Islam’s primary bloodline, which forged what we now call the “Muslim world” over the centuries.

According to the ayatollah, when they can—when circumstance permits it, when they are strong enough—Muslims are obligated to go on the offensive and conquer non-Muslims (a fact to be kept in mind as millions of Muslim “refugees” flood the West).

The Muslim cleric repeatedly yelled at the secularized host who kept interrupting him and protesting that Islam cannot teach such intolerance. At one point, he burst out: “I am the scholar of Islam [al-faqih]. You are just a journalist. Listen to me!”

Expounded Al-Baghdadi:

If they are people of the book [Jews and Christians] we demand of them the jizya—and if they refuse, then we fight them. That is if he is Christian. He has three choices: either convert to Islam, or, if he refuses and wishes to remain Christian, then pay the jizya [and live according to dhimmi rules].

But if they still refuse—then we fight them, and we abduct their women, and destroy their churches—this is Islam!… Come on, learn what Islam is, are you even a Muslim?!

As for the polytheists [Hindus, Buddhists, etc.] we allow them to choose between Islam and war! This is not the opinion of Ahmad al-Husseini al-Baghdadi, but the opinion of all five schools of jurisprudence [four Sunni and one Shia].

Towards the end of the interview, because the clean-shaven, suit-and-tie-wearing host kept protesting that this cannot be Islam, the ayatollah burst out, pointing at him with contempt and saying, “Who are you? You’re going to tell me what to believe? This is the word of Allah!” (source)

How very racist.

Joking aside, this once again demonstrates that the fluffy ‘Religion of Peace™’ version of Islam that Western leaders cling to is completely fake, and the violent, supremacist version promoted by experts in Islamic theology, like al-Baghdadi above, and by others throughout the Arab world, is the correct one.

Our foreign and immigration policies should be based on that reality, not on the fiction.


  1. The government supports hate preachers coming to Australia. Why not extend an invitation to this bloke to address the Australian Parliament with a view of having explained to our “intelligent” leaders what the real purpose and motive of Islam are. Not likely to happen because they don’t want to know the truth about Islam.


    • On the contrary, they know the truth about Islam all right but their key objective is to remain in power – they presumably believe their current parroting of the peaceful Islam line will achieve that objective.
