Mad Mo Mohammad, the Krazy Koran and the "filth of Islam" are a real drag.
Even as a baby, Mohammad was totally out of his freakin' mind.
Dear sports, here is a cool review from Amazon dot com, of Robert Spencer’s DVD, ‘Islam: What the West needs to know’. As you imagine, it’s all about the Krazy Koran, and as Christopher Hitchens recently and accurately described Islam’s empirical and crude reality as the “filth of Islam” and of course, your favourite party dude and laughter cadet, Mad Mo Mohammad.
It’s by ‘Sparkles’ and the link is at the end of the piece and his many other reviews are worth reading. I have made edits for ease of reading.So here's 'Sparkles'.
A couple of years ago I decided I needed to become informed regarding Islam, so I began. All told, I guess I've read about 40 books and now have a pretty good idea about what it is. The first book I went out and bought and read, was the Koran, because I thought l may as well go to the source and get the info straight.
Contra to earlier reviewers, reading the Koran did not convert me, nor was it a magic bullet and knock over evidence in favour of Islam.
In fact, to quote Thomas Carlyle in the excellent book `Secrets of the Koran' by Don Richardson, the Koran is, "A wearisome jumble, crude, incondite [with] endless iterations [and] longwindedness...Nothing but a sense of duty could carry any European through the Koran”. And so it was with me.
I slogged through it, not because it was brilliant, gripping and diverse literature, it most certainly is not. Rather drab and uniform from beginning to end, despite its Hellfire and damnation on virtually every page, neither did it have the ring of truth and the Divine about it, it most certainly did not. It is the most turgid, boring and incomprehensible writing I have ever read.
And according to Richardson, it is even more incomprehensible in Arabic! It is more comprehensible in translation because at least in a translation, the translator tries to make what is being translated comprehensible! But then of course, a translation is not THE Koran, as only the Koran in Arabic, the Holy tongue, is the Koran, so I never really read the Koran did I, and no one who does not know Arabic can do so!
Dear Saleem, where did you get that ridiculous statistic that 3 out of 4 people who read the Koran accepts Islam? I'm sure that huge numbers of Westerners have read the Koran in the last few years, though most have not been converted but repulsed by it. I imagine like me they read it so as to become informed.
Well...in my reading, I came to cut through all the baloney being put out by idiot PC Western leaders who to this day, keep assuring us that Islam is a `religion of peace', and that it’s only a few disaffected Moslems who have hijacked the ‘great religion' who are a threat to the West.
It became abundantly clear, that it’s Islam itself, built on the explicit teachings of the Koran and Hadiths, and on the example of the Islamic `perfect man' Mohammed, which is the threat. 1400 years of these explicit teachings and the following of Mo’s example has wreaked death, destruction and slavery over a vast area and on a mind numbing scale. Today the same thing is occurring all around the world. When a bomb goes off somewhere, you can almost guarantee, 99 times out of 100, Moslems planted it.
The talk about moderate or peaceful Moslems, radical, jihadist and terrorist Moslems is I think, a false dichotomy. Rather what you have are inconsistent Moslems and consistent Moslems, and the consistent, orthodox ones are the radicals and jihadists because they follow the Koran and the example of Mohammed, and the others, for whatever reason, don't.
The only place it appears you can have ‘reformist' Muslims is in the West, because in Islamic countries, reformists end up as dead heretics. But then in the West you have the workings of `taqiyya', the Koranic practice of Muslims lying to further the Islamic cause. At the end of the day, can any Muslim in the West be trusted? With taqiyya as a Mohammed established and authorised doctrine, I don't see how they can be.
So...when I heard that `Islam: What the West Needs to Know' was available, I purchased it immediately, and it confirmed what I had already discovered. It’s not entertainment, nor can it be called a nice DVD, but never the less should be required viewing. It has no razzamatazz or glitz whatever, but is solid information from beginning to end. The juxtaposition of Western leaders making their starry eyed public statements, with far blunter statements of Islamic authorities contradicting them, was most enlightening.
Where do Western leaders get their information from? Muslims practising taqiyya?
The technical quality could be improved, but that should not get in the way, nor be allowed to. The content is clear and unemotional, coming from people who know the subject inside out. And, with it simply examining the actual words of Islamic authorities, and avoiding second hand or adversarial sources, it plays the strongest hand possible. I highly recommended it.
I would suggest to the makers of it, perhaps they are already planning or working on this, that they put out a second version with upgraded illustrations and more of them. When anything can be illustrated it should be. This would make it more accessible for more people and be more visually interesting.
