Amil Imani On Islam & the Iranian DilemmaTopics: Iran
There's no better way to describe this than to say simply - it's Amil Amani unleashed - and his target is what he believes to be Islam's devastating effects on the world, framed within the context of what Islam has brought upon the people of Iran.
[...] Since its inception fourteen hundred years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literally butchered with the sword of Islam.Continue reading Amil Amani's Islam & the Iranian Dilemma ...
Some may argue that all religions at one point in time have committed crimes against humanity. That may be so, but none of the existing world religions' foundation has been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent conquered "victims."
Islam lives, breathes and grows on blood. Once we take away this red element from Islam, Islam will vanish completely. Islam cannot possibly live in the hearts and minds of its believers. Islam needs to shed the blood of the infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. Islam is about world domination. Fear of pain and punishment for non-conformism is part of being a Muslim.
Muslims are radical even in their intrafaith dealings. Various sects and sub-sects pronounce other sects and sub-sects as heretics worthy of death; women are treated as chattel, deprived of many rights; hands are chopped for stealing even a loaf of bread; sexual "violations" and "indiscretions", as defined and delimited by Islamic Sharia is punishable by stoning, and much much more. These are standard day-to-day ways of the mainstream "moderate" Muslims living under the stone-age laws of Sharia (Islamic jurisprudence).
The "moderate" mainstream of Islam has been outright genocidal from inception. Their own historians record that Ali, the first imam of the Shiite and the son-in-law of Muhammad, with the help of another man, beheaded 700 Jewish men in the presence of the Prophet himself. The Prophet of Allah and his disciples took the murdered mens' women and children into slavery.
[...] Muslims are taught deception and lying in the Quran itself--something that Muhammad practiced during his life whenever he found it expedient. Successive Islamic rulers and leaders have done the same.
Khomeini, the founder of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, for instance, rallied the people under the banner of democracy. All along his support for democracy was not a commitment of an honest man, but a ruse. As soon as he gathered the reins of power, Khomeini went after the "Useful Idiots" of his time with vengeance. These best children of Iran, having been thoroughly deceived and used by the crafty phony populist-religionist, had to flee the country to avoid the fate of tens of thousands who were imprisoned or executed by the double-crossing "imam Khomeini."
Throughout centuries, Iranians continued to prevent Islam from making inroads into their cultural identity and divesting them of their heritage. Knowing their culture well, they influenced events and paved the way for posterity to turn the tide. From the beginning, three lines of resistance had become distinct: administrative manipulation, political resistance, and intellectual nonconformity.
Almost three decades after the tragic Islamic Revolution of 1979, the suffocating rule of Islam casts its death-bearing pall over Iranians. A proud people with enviable heritage is being systematically purged of its sense of identity and forced to think and behave like the barbaric and intolerant Muslims.

I fully agree with the above article. The Islamic Revolution is destroying one of the great cultures of the World. Before the Revolution, most Iranians referred closely aligned themselves with their Persian culture and kept their nationalistic and religious identities in check. Persians have a deep and rich history and it's shameful for us to sit by and watch it fade away from people's consciousness. The unfortunate reality is that a large part of the Iranian population is under 30 years old, and these people have been raised under the rule of the Ayatollahs and know nothing about their culture and traditions. They are being fed the propaganda and lies of the regime. For them, the Iranian state is ruled by the laws of Islam and the West is the enemy. They're being systematically stripped of their cultural identity and their traditions. They've become their own worst enemies.

Good points Joe, and not because you agree with the article. I've several Iranian friends that made it out years ago, and feel the same way about many of those that remain in Iran.
BTW, the invite to become a poster at Hyscience still stands.
