Hello, to obtain a pdf copy of the Islam and Terrorism leaflet please email to and I will send an email back with it attached for you to print out or pass on. Any comments I would be most grateful for too. (Obviously you need to delete the bit in CAPITALS there, added to stop email harvesters.)
The following is the latest version of the text of the leaflet which prints on A4 paper. But this does not have the formatting of the pdf file, which you should obtain from me instead.
ARE THE TERRORISTS STUPID?
We should not hate or kill Muslims, because....
Even though for some “strange” reason (which no-one at the BBC ever explains) there are obviously few Buddhist jihadists, few Sikh jihadists, few Hindic jihadists, few Confucian jihadists, few Jewish jihadists, few Jainist jihadists, few Christian jihadists. And even though so many jihadist groups such as Boku Haram, Islamic State, al Qaeda, al Nusra, Hezbollah, al Shabaab, al Muhajiroun, and so on all declare themselves to be Muslims......
Muslims are themselves victims of a hoax pretending to be a religion.
The Qur’an declares that it is a clear book (12:1, 16:89, 27:75, 34:3, 36:12); easy to understand (44:58, 54:22, 54:32, 54:40); explained in detail (6:114); conveyed clearly (5:16, 10:15); with clear ordinances (98:3).
And nowhere does the Qur’an say anything like “If you aren’t sure what a verse means, just ask an Imam or someone qualified to interpret it, who you can recognise by the official badge they wear etc.”. Any Imam or “scholar” who does claim to do that “interpretation” would necessarily be putting themselves in place of Allah’s Final Messenger and thus committing a major haram sin.
There is nothing needing “interpretation”, just many verses that Muslims have to go to great lengths to imagine don't really mean what they clearly do say. And yet by doing so they are contradicting those verses stated above here. And verses 2:85-86 make clear that Muslims are not allowed to pick and choose which verses they believe and follow.
The following are some of the many verses which cannot possibly need some complex “interpretations” by a so-called “Professor of Islamic Studies” (because that would mean all those verses about the Qur’an being “clear” and “detailed” and “easy to understand” must be wrong).
The Qur’an says that man was created from a blood clot [96:1-2], from water [25:54], from clay [15:26], from dust [30:20], and from nothing [3:47].
And “Every being that is in the heavens and on earth: all are devoutly obedient to Him.” [30:26] ... but the Qur’an also makes hundreds of mentions of those who are not obedient [2:11-20, 3:10-12, etc etc] and the horrors that await them.
Many verses of the Qur’an declare that Allah is “all-powerful” and “can do all things” [e.g. 2:20, 59:6]. One therefore has to wonder why he could only write in Arabic and did not provide his own authorised translations in such major languages as Chinese, English, and Spanish. Indeed, why didn’t he just
deliver his important message to each of us directly rather than strangely grant an exclusive monopoly to an ancient Arabian merchant? ‑ it would have saved so much confusion.
And why is some of the maths so miraculous in the Qur’an? Qur’an 4:11-12 and 4:176 state the Qur'anic inheritance law. When a man dies, and is leaving behind three daughters, his two parents and his wife, they will receive the respective shares of 2/3 for the three daughters together, 1/3 for the parents together [both according to verse 4:11] and 1/8 for the wife [4:12] which adds up to more than the available estate. A second example: A man leaves only his mother, his wife and two sisters, then they receive 1/3 [mother, 4:11], 1/4 [wife, 4:12] and 2/3 [the two sisters, 4:176], which again adds up to more than the available property. Did Allah fail Maths GCSE as well as English GCSE?
Again, numerous Qur’an verses declare that the Bible is a true revelation, and yet other Qur’an verses declare that it is corrupted, and even contradict it (for instance about the death of Christ, and most notably as to whether we should hate our enemies rather than love them).
Why are there hundreds of verses complaining about disbelievers and those who pretend to believe? Why would anyone want to disbelieve Allah’s wonderful revelation anyway, let alone sneakily only pretend to believe it? Indeed, why is his book is so angry about many people refusing to believe in his existence? Did Allah have a problem of low self-esteem?
Why are there so many Qur’an verses about people only pretending to believe? [e.g. 2:8-20, 63:1-11, 4:61, 4:140, 4:145; 8:49. 9:64, 9:67.] Why could anyone want to only pretend to believe in Islam? And why would it be so important to make such a threatening fuss about them in the Qur’an?
The Islamic year is very inaccurate, even though 600 years earlier Julius Caesar had already got the year accurate to a fraction of a day. The Qur’an clearly and detailedly commands to “strictly observe the fast till nightfall” [2:187] when that can mean fasting for weeks continuously in Polar regions.
The Qur’an declares that a man walked to and reached the places where the sun “rises” and “sets” [18:86, 18:90]. And the Qur’an never speaks of the Earth being a globe but only of it being like a flat carpet rolled out [5:19, 20:53, 43:10, 50:7, 51:48, 71:19, 78:6, 79:30, 88:20, 91:6].
Could it be that Allah had only ever lived in Arabia and consequently only knew about his own flat-earth polar-less winter-less Arabic-speaking universe?
And why did you become a Muslim yourself? Was it because you read the Qur’an and were impressed by Allah’s miraculous words of wisdom? Why are so many millions now leaving Islam (and joining ex-Muslim groups), even though they encounter death threats? Please download and print out more from
