Nothing could be further from the truth!
Islam has no fundamental concept of Inalienable Rights as mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Islam does not permit the individual to enjoy the freedoms of action and association characteristic of the Democracy that so many Western cultures currently enjoy today. A well known fact is that Islam is a totalitarian ideology that rejects Democracy, personal freedom, and every other religion. The ideals of anti-Semitism and anti-Western Culture run rampant throughout Islam. The Laws of Man are meaningless and have absolutely no relevance in Muslim culture because they are without any direct reference to the Koran or Sharia Law and therefore they have no place in Muslim life.
For example, Saudi Arabia infuses Islam in all aspects of daily life. The practice of any other religion is against the law and there is an actual Religious Police to enforce this law. So much for Islam's tolerance of other religions. All laws come from Sharia Law and with its foundation in the Koran, it is the law. Muslims are convinced that this is the way all life should be lived. The belief that if Sharia Law is good for now, it is good for all times and they firmly believe that because Sharia Law comes directly from the Koran, it is the word of Allah and therefore, it is good for all times.
Islam, as practiced by the radical fundamentalists that lead the religion, does not encourage the pursuit of knowledge outside of itself as can be seen by their attitude toward other cultures especially Western Culture. This is the reason Islam is often referred to as "the religion which has produced nothing but religion". Essentially, anything that is not Islamic is not encouraged and in many instances, it is outright forbidden. Ideals Americans take for granted such as Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of the Press have absolutely no meaning or place within Islamic culture.
In Islamic states, where there is no formally recognized separation between religion and law, mosque and state, Sharia Law is a cornerstone and is often implemented as the final and ultimate formulation of the law of God, not to be revised or reformulated by mere mortal and fallible human beings. Freedom does not exist in Islam. Only Islam exists in Islam. Ideally, Islam and its teachings would run the State and all laws would be based on criteria from the Koran.
Their goal is to make Islam a Worldwide State sanctioned religion led by religious leaders having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all aspects of life based on Islamic teachings, and emphasizing Islam to the detriment of any and all other religions and secular beliefs.
For people that have grown up with Freedom and Liberty, this is often a hard realization to comprehend. Islam as a religion requires mandatory implementation and participation as a way of life and is the goal of all Muslims. For Muslims, Islam is the only true religion. All other religions are false and an insult to Allah, Islam, "the prophet" Muhammad, and all Muslims. Under Islamic law, infidel religions and beliefs will not be tolerated. With Islam, there is no Freedom of Religion, there is no Individual Freedom; there is only Islam and the Islamic way of life.
"He who fights that Islam should be superior fights in Allah's cause."

Once you understand this concept, it is easy to comprehend what Islam really is. As a religion, Islam is run by Radical Muslims. They are the loudest and most vocal on Islam. The Radical Muslims are the true Muslims that dictate and control Islam. They are the ones that fight to get what they want based on Islamic Law. This webpage aims to show what they have done, what they are doing now, and the role they want for Islam in the future.
Whether you like it or not, whether you agree with it or not, whether you believe it or not, Islamic Terrorists are the cause for almost all of the world's terrorist attacks. There are always detractors that will advance the notion that these "Islamic Terrorists" are not true Muslims, but such is not the case. These terrorists are dedicated Muslims and serious students of Islam and its teachings. They understand what Islam is, what it means to be a defender of Allah and of Islam, and what is required to be a good Muslim. Remember, Muslims believe that Islam is the only true religion, superior to all other religions and beliefs. These Muslims believe they are on a mission with orders directly from Allah as written in the Koran to destroy anything they see as a threat or an insult to Islam and Allah.
Examine a somewhat hidden concept of Islam. To advance the cause of Islam is to implement the complete domination of Islam over all other religions with the goal being the eventual elimination of other religions. When a Muslim dies while attempting to advance the cause of Islam, including by warfare and killing, it is not considered suicide, but a glorious act worthy of a secured place in Paradise. Islam is unique among major world religions in this concept. We see this reality whenever a suicide bomber strikes, Muslims are quick to heave praise on the terrorist and on the family of the suicide bomber. There is nothing but contempt given to the victims.
There is one historical precedent rarely discussed about Islam that helps to explain the terrorist mentality commonly associated with Islam. The bloody legacy of Muhammad would be a constant challenge to those living on the borders of Islamic belief. The violence that Muslim armies would level on people across North Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia as far as India is a tribute to a founder who condoned slavery, rape, murder and forced conversion in the cause of spreading the rule of his religion. This concept established by Muhammad as a fundamental tool to spread Islam is certainly the basis for terror campaigns against Western infidels and the general apathy that Muslims around the world have to the violence against non-Muslims.
Islamic Control Over Every Aspect Of Everyday Life
We made the statement that Islam is against personal freedoms such as the freedoms we enjoy in America. Get ready for this. Iran is now implementing official Islamic haircut regulations. You read that right; there is now an official Islamic approved hairstyle for men in Iran. Jaleh Khodayar, the director of the Hijab and Chastity Festival has announced a guideline for men's haircuts. All Muslim men in Iran will have to follow the catalogue and may not make their own style.
The haircut catalog is part of the Iranian government’s long-running battle against Western cultural influence. Every summer, the country’s morality police renew their crackdown on "un-Islamic" dress and styles, including loose veils on women and long hair or ponytails on men. Special police squads have stopped or arrested unmarried couples, women wearing too much makeup and people playing Western music.
The new law will not allow a Muslim to have mullet or spiked hair. Mr. Khodayar said, "We don't have a backward attitude. We are trying to present new hairstyles while preserving tradition and observing Iranian culture… This is how we will fight back against the Western cultural invasion… These hairstyles were designed according to aesthetic science, the type of neck, beard, length of chin, and the culture of the provinces."
The religious police of Iran will monitor all barber shops and make sure everyone complies with the new rule.
This is just one example of how in Islam, there is no freedom, just Islam. These haircut standards are based on Islam tradition and therefore have a basis in Islamic Law. This is no different than when the Taliban took control of Afghanistan and set the requirement that all Muslim men grow beards and forced women into burkas. Just wait until there is a Muslim majority in Europe in the next 20-30 years and the local religious police unit that started as some kind of neighborhood watch committee implements roving patrols.
Welcome to Islam "Religion of Peace"
How many more examples do you want?
How many more examples do you need?
The truth is evident for all to see...
To fully understand the danger of Radical Islam, you need to have the courage to accept the truth about Islam. Take a good look at "HAMAS Charter of 1988" and "The Truth About the Palestinian People". The way that Islam is practiced by today's radical leaders, there is nothing that remotely resembles anything peaceful or civilized, at least by western standards.
"O Allah, destroy America, as it is controlled by Zionist Jews... Allah will avenge, in the name of His Prophet, the colonist settlers who are the descendents of monkeys and pigs..."

"When jihad becomes an individual duty, it applies to women too, because women do not differ from men when it comes to individual duties, the brothers of apes and pigs [the Jews] who should taste the bitterness of death."
-- Yunis al-Astal, speaking about the need for suicide bombers and the importance of martydom in a sermon on 11 April 2008
"The most exalted form of jihad is fighting for the sake of Allah, which means sacrificing one's soul by fighting the enemies head-on, even if it leads to martyrdom."
-- Yunis al-Astal, prominent Muslim cleric and HAMAS member of the Palestinian parliament in an interview on 23 June 2007
We are told by Muslims and their Western apologists that Islam is the "Religion of Peace". Islam's primary sources are: the Sira (biography), Ta'rikh (history), Hadith (report) & the Qur'an (recital). If Islam is really the "Religion of Peace", its 'religious texts' will reflect how "peaceful" it is towards non-believers. Let us now examine the "scriptures" of Islam to see what Muslims believe about the "Kafir" or "infidel" (non-believer)...
