Is the War on Terror the ultimate global war involving every nation on earth for either harboring terrorists or not do anything to stop terrorism?
Is this the ultimate “holy war” pitting 1.3 billion Islamic Muslims against 1.6 billion Christians and Jews?
No matter how you look it, either the terrorists win, or the civilized world loses – and that includes all of Western Civilization going back to the Old and New Testaments and the 10 Commandants.
Islam has its own “bible,” known as the Koran, or Qur’an, the work of the “prophet” Mohammed around 750 A.D. In the Koran, the Western World’s God is called “Allah.”
Curiously, the Koran is a religious revelation that seeks to save Jesus Christ from the “infidels” – Jews and Christians.
Wasn’t Jesus a Jew who launched Christianity by being crucified for the sins of humankind?
So why is Islam and its Muslim followers committed to killing every Jew and Christian in order to purify Jesus of those terrible “infidels?” – Jews and Christians!
If this all sounds like madness, then today’s “holy war” is all about madness: The Koran versus the Old and New Testaments – the foundation of the Judeo-Christian ethic necessary for a good moral life on earth.
Here’s an example of Muslim faith: The conclusion of a Palestinian “prayer for peace” by Palestinian Authority Imam Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi, sermonizing at the Sheik’h Mosque in Gaza City, broadcast live on April, 12, 2002 by Palestinian Authority television:
“Oh, Allah, annihilate the Jews and their supporters!”
“Oh, Allah, raise the flag of Jihad across the land!”
America is considered the lead supporter of the Jewish State of Israel, primarily because Israel is the only “democracy” with free and open elections in that part of the Arab Muslim world, which is controlled by ruthless dictators or monarchies.
The Koran, the Muslim bible, says, “Slay the idolaters wherever you find them.”
The Koran also calls for “mercy and toleration” and “peace and love.”
Islam wants it both ways: War & Peace, which was the title of a classic book about the human conflict over war and peace.
According to author and historian Jamie Glazov, “Islam regulates every realm of its believers’ lives and negates individualism. Consequently, Islam is mutually exclusive with free will…This is precisely why it has not, and cannot, join the modern world.”
Islam is committed to destroying the “modern world of the infidels.” That’s why their terrorists attacked the World Trade Center – the free world’s greatest symbol of economic success and freedom (free will).
For that, Americans deserve to die.
Islamic terrorists don’t care if they kill innocent children or men and women working for the Red Cross or the United Nations “peacekeepers.” They are all “infidels.”
Terrorists don’t distinguish the good from the bad. We’re all evil because we are not beholden to Islam or the Koran.
That is why World War III will be the ultimate global war, dividing the world into terrorists and anti-terrorists.
President Bush was correct when he declared, after the bombing of the Twin Towers, that “You’re either with us, or you’re with the terrorists.”
It’s straight, simple and logical.
It comes down to “them versus us.”
Muslims will have to decide who they’re with – the terrorists, or the civilized war.
Muslims living in America must denounce the killing of innocent Jews, Christians and common citizens.
If they don’t, then Muslims must be moved to a place where their religion is worshipped, from India and Indonesia to most of the Arab world.
Our President and Congress must protect America, not those who want to destroy America.

I was laughing my ass off at this guys idiocy.
At the bottom it allows you to send feedback, which i did an i stated this
Your article only serves to stir the proverbial hornets nest. If we have a religious ww3, its because of individuals like yourself starting it.
Let me point out a few flaws in your absurd argument:
1. You provoke the reader into thinking Islam is synonymous with terrorism. Wrong from the start.
2. WW3? Get over yourself.
3. If there was WW3, there wouldnt be anyone left to be taken back to the old testament and the 10 commandments.
4. Islam does not have its own 'bible'. Bible is a title, not a descriptive noun. Their holy book is the Quran, simple as that.
5. You stated "Curiously, the Koran is a religious revelation that seeks to save Jesus Christ from the “infidels” – Jews and Christians." This couldnt be any more inaccurate. Jesus is mentioned over 100 times in thr Quran and identified as a prophet of God and will be the one to return on the day of judgement to fight the anti-christ. http://www.answering...me_of_jesus.htm Visit this link for more information on the name of Jesus in the Quran. I think its obvious you havent read a word of the Quran.
6. You stated:"Wasn’t Jesus a Jew who launched Christianity by being crucified for the sins of humankind?" No. Typicaly Jesus was thought to have been a Jew, but his teachings from an early age to elders at temple were obviously gnostic. Jesus didnt spawn christianity. His deciples started a movement with twisted version of his teachings and Christianity became prevalend around 600AD with the catholic and orthadox churches. The councils of Nicea were held to create the holy text, the Bible which was the official marking point of Christianity.
7. Your example of the Palestinian prayer for peace is a very innacurate representation of true Muslims. Even Muhammed himself spoke against extremism in the Hadiths. "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded." Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 38
8. You said: "Islam is committed to destroying the “modern world of the infidels.” That’s why their terrorists attacked the World Trade Center – the free world’s greatest symbol of economic success and freedom (free will)." You know as well as everyone else, this is pointless and simple conjecture not founded in any proof.
Before you spout off more lies about the Israeli Palestinian conflict, research your HISTORY more (start with the birth of zionism which is Jewish extremism) and you'll find the truth of who started the conflict. Let me enlighten you a tad. It was the zionists. They murdered and displaces thousands of palestines people. Do i believe it is right for islamic extremists to bomb the Israelis? No. But you still need to know who drew first blood.
Lastly, you stated:"If they don’t, then Muslims must be moved to a place where their religion is worshipped, from India and Indonesia to most of the Arab world. "
You're an ass. You need to be "moved" to a place with people as ignorant as you are... Perhaps Palestine.
Im really astounded at the absolute ingnorance of this guy. And to think he calls himself a historian and received so many awards. That doesnt say much for the awards he received. The poor angry sad man.
Anyone who is pissed at reading this, send this guy some proper education.
