President John Quincy Adams (1825-1829) on Islam (Compare to Obama's
Topics: Islam, Political News and commentaries
Soopermexican aptly suggests President John Quincy Adams (U.S. President 1825-1829) was far more accurate in his understanding of Islam than our current president ... the feckless, clueless, Islam-appeasing Barack Obama.
For example, President Adams said of Islam:
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.As Soopermexican points out, we, on the other hand, have a president ... Barack Obama, defending Islam as a religion of peace, while castigating Christians for violence done in it's name 800 years ago. And who has also said that the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet Muhammed:
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man's hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).
So, just how wrong is Obama on Islam, who nven refuses to allow anyone in his administration to utter the words 'radical Islam' or refer to 'Islamic extremism'? Well, even Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi confronted the issue of jihadism in an address to Islamic scholars at Al-Azhar University on January 1, 2015 and called for the reform of Islam:
"We are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world is waiting for your next move."Meanwhile, Barack Obama, oblivious to the world on fire around him via the hate, violence, terrorism, and mayhem of Islamic extremists ... says he's concerned by "less-than-loving" Christians.
