The Islamic

The Muslims Make the Rules

Islam twists everything up into surreal webs of logic from which no man can escape with his soul.

Observe, the Islamic Golden Rule:

In his Last Sermon, the Prophet Muhammad admonished believers:

"Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you." (Pastorius note: This is not moral thinking. Instead, it is just practical advice based upon the idea of reciprocity.)

Jeffrey Wattles holds that the ethic of reciprocity appears in the
following statements attributed to Muhammad:

[20] “Woe to those . . . who, when they have to receive by measure from
men, exact full measure, but when they have to give by measure or weight to men,
give less than due”

[21] The Qur'an commends "those who show their affection to such as came to
them for refuge and entertain no desire in their hearts for things given to the
(latter), but give them preference over themselves"

[22] “None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he
wishes for himself.”

[23] "Seek for mankind that of which you are desirous for yourself, that
you may be a believer; treat well as a neighbor the one who lives near you, that
you may be a Muslim
[one who submits to God]."

[24] “That which you want for yourself, seek for mankind.”

[24] "The most righteous of men is the one who is glad that men should have
what is pleasing to himself, and who dislikes for them what is for him

In other words, make a rule, for all mankind, of whatever you desire for yourself. Does that sound familiar? It ought to, as it is the basic idea of leftism as well.

The Islamic Golden Rule is not anything like the Judeo-Christian Golden Rule, which calls for us to treat each other as we would want to be treated.

Instead, the Islamic Golden Rule is a formula for totalitarianism.

Islam is not a religion exhorting its followers on to be better people. It is, instead, a totalitarian ideology, pure and simple.
