Quote form Koran,
The Qur'an tells us: "not to make friendship with Jews and Christians" (5:51), "kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (2:191), "murder them and treat them harshly" (9:123), "fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem" (9:5). The Qur'an demands that we fight the unbelievers, and promises "If there are twenty amongst you, you will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, you will vanquish a thousand of them" (8:65).
Allah and his messenger want us to fight the Christians and the Jews "until they pay the Jizya [a penalty tax for the non-Muslims living under Islamic rules] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (9:29). Allah and his messenger announce that it is acceptable to go back on our promises (treaties) and obligations with Pagans and make war on them whenever we find ourselves strong enough to do so (9:3). Our God tells us to "fight the unbelievers" and "He will punish them by our hands, cover them with shame and help us (to victory) over them" (9:14).
The Qur'an takes away the freedom of belief from all humanity and relegates those who disbelieve in Islam to hell (5:10), calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (9:28), and orders its followers to fight the unbelievers until no other religion except Islam is left (2:193). It says that the "non-believers will go to hell and will drink boiling water" (14:17). It asks the Muslims to "slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace and that they shall have a great punishment in world hereafter" (5:34). And tells us that "for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods" (22:19-22) and that they not only will have "disgrace in this life, but on the Day of Judgment He shall make them taste the Penalty of burning (Fire)" (22:9). The Qur'an says that "those who invoke a god other than Allah not only should meet punishment in this world but the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to them, and they will dwell therein in ignominy" (25:68). For those who "believe not in Allah and His Messenger, He has prepared, for those who reject Allah, a Blazing Fire!" (48:13). Although we are asked to be compassionate amongst each other, we have to be "harsh with unbelievers", our Christian, Jewish and Atheist neighbours and colleagues (48:29). As for him who does not believe in Islam, the Prophet announces with a "stern command": "Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! So no friend hath he here this Day. Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, Which none do eat but those in sin." (69:30-37) The Qur'an prohibits a Muslim from befriending a non-believer even if that non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim (9:23), (3:28). Our holy book asks us to be disobedient towards the disbelievers and their governments and strive against the unbelievers with great endeavour" (25:52) and be stern with them because they belong to Hell (66:9). The holy Prophet prescribes fighting for us and tells us that "it is good for us even if we dislike it" (2:216). Then he advises us to "strike off the heads of the disbelievers"; and after making a "wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives" (47:4). Our God has promised to "instil terror into the hearts of the unbelievers" and has ordered us to "smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them" (8:12). He also assures us that when we kill in his name "it is not us who slay them but Allah, in order that He might test the Believers by a gracious trial from Himself" (8:17). He orders us "to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies" (8:60). He has made the Jihad mandatory and warns us that "Unless we go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish us with a grievous penalty, and put others in our place" (9:39). Allah speaks to our Holy Prophet and says "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern against them. Their abode is Hell - an evil refuge indeed" (9:73).
He promises us that in the fight for His cause whether we slay or are slain we return to the garden of Paradise (9:111). In Paradise he will "wed us with Houris (celestial virgins) pure beautiful ones" (56:54), and unite us with large-eyed beautiful ones while we recline on our thrones set in lines (56:20). There we are promised to eat and drink pleasantly for what we did (56:19). He also promises "boys like hidden pearls" (56:24) and "youth never altering in age like scattered pearls" (for those who have paedophiliac inclinations) (76:19). As you see, Allah has promised all sorts or rewards, gluttony and unlimited sex to Muslim men who kill unbelievers in his name. We will be admitted to Paradise where we shall find "goodly things, beautiful ones, pure ones confined to the pavilions that man has not touched them before nor jinni" (56:67-71).
In the West we enjoy freedom of belief but we are not supposed to give such freedom to anyone else because it is written "If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good) (3:85). And He orders us to fight them on until there is no more tumult and faith in Allah is practiced everywhere (8:39).
As for women the book of Allah says that they are inferior to men and their husbands have the right to scourge them if they are found disobedient (4:34). It advises to "take a green branch and beat your wife", because a green branch is more flexible and hurts more. (38:44). It teaches that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their husbands (66:10). It maintains that men have an advantage over the women (2:228). It not only denies the women's equal right to their inheritance (4:11-12), it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their witness is not admissible in the courts of law (2:282). This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness. Our Holy Prophet allows us to marry up to four wives and he licensed us to sleep with our slave maids and as many 'captive' women as we may have (4:3) even if those women are already married. He himself did just that. This is why anytime a Muslim army subdues another nation, they call them kafir and allow themselves to rape their women. Pakistani soldiers allegedly raped up to 250,000 Bengali women in 1971 after they massacred 3,000,000 unarmed civilians when their religious leader decreed that Bangladeshis are un-Islamic. This is why the prison guards in Islamic regime of Iran rape the women that in their opinion are apostates prior to killing them, as they believe a virgin will not go to Hell.
Palestinians murder those who would resists Arafat and his criminal regime
Palestinian gunmen kill 'collaborators'
Israeli forces have entered several Palestinian areas
Masked Palestinian gunmen have shot dead 11 suspected collaborators, as Israel continues to widen its offensive in the West Bank.
Eight people were killed in the West Bank town of Tulkarm by two gunmen, who entered a building used by the Palestinian intelligence service, Palestinian security sources said.
Israel has been battered by a spate of of suicide bombings Perpetrated by those who hate life, the followers of Islam.
Earlier, two men also accused of helping the Israelis were found with gunshot wounds in the town of Qalqilya, and one man was killed in Bethlehem. Executed without trial, in cold blood, by thier own peoples.
Israeli troops and tanks firing heavy machine guns later thrust into Tulkarm as helicopters circled overhead. The army already controls Qalqilya, and more tanks have massed on the outskirts of Bethlehem. The lord looks favorably on the backs of the heros of the IDF.
Palestinian security sources say 10 tanks made their way to the centre of Tulkarm on Monday afternoon - while dozens of tanks remained on the outskirts and around the two refugee camps located there.
The incursions came hours after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon declared war on what he called Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's terrorist infrastructure.
Mr Sharon had been speaking in a televised address to the nation after two suicide bombings killed 17 people and injured more than 30 on Sunday.
In Qalqilya, the Israeli military said it was conducting searches for militants and weapons in order "to destroy the terrorist infrastructure" in the town.
Qalqilya is close to the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Netanya, which have both been targeted by Palestinian suicide bombers.
Power and water supplies were cut off as at least 60 tanks took up position, and some exchanges of fire were reported.
And he urged political and religious leaders to work to end "the tragic sequence of attacks and killing that bloody the Holy Land."
Islamic foreign ministers meeting in Malaysia have warned that Israeli military action against the Palestinians is dragging the region towards all-out war.
Israeli police now say they are considering deporting the group of activists - most of whom are French.
Cyrus the Great See also: Ancient History Middle Eastern Biographies
(si´res), d. 529 BC, king of Persia, founder of the greatness of the Achaemenids and of the Persian Empire. According to Herodotus, he was the son of an Iranian noble, the elder Cambyses, and a Median princess, daughter of Astyages. Many historians, following other ancient writers (such as Ctesias), deny this genealogy, and the whole of Cyrus' life is encrusted with legend. Cyrus overthrew Astyages, king of the Medes, sometime between 559 BC and 549 BC He entered Ecbatana and, taking over the Median kingdom, began to build a great empire after the Assyrian model. Cyrus' objectives were to gain power over the Mediterranean coast, secure Asia Minor, and civilize the east. Croesus of Lydia, Nabonidus of Babylonia, and Amasis II of Egypt, joined by Sparta, tried to build a strong alliance against him, but to no avail. He defeated and captured Croesus (546 BC), and Lydia became a satrapy under the Persian government. The Chaldaean empire of Babylonia fell to Cyrus in 538 BC He did not conquer Egypt, but he prepared the way for later Persian victories there. Cyrus demanded the surrender of the Greek cities that had been under Lydia, and they also became satrapies of Persia. Cyrus was much admired by the Jews, whom he favored, placing them in power in Palestine. His motive was probably to create a buffer state between Persia and Egypt, but the result was a rehabilitation of Israel. Cyrus was admired as a liberator rather than a conqueror, because he respected the customs and religions of each part of his vast empire. The exact limits of Cyrus' eastern conquests are not known, but it is possible that they reached as far as the Peshawar region. He used Susa, Ecbatana, and Babylon as his capitals but was buried at Pasargadae, where he had built a splendid palace. At his death his son Cambyses succeeded him, despite the ambitions of another son, Smerdis.
Jerusalem's history stretches back about 5,000 years. About 2500 BC, the Canaanites inhabited the city. Later, Jerusalem became a Jebusite citadel. When DAVID captured the city (c.1000 BC), the Jebusites were absorbed into the Jewish people. David made Jerusalem the capital of his kingdom, and SOLOMON built the first Temple to house the Ark of the Covenant. In 586 BC, the Babylonian NEBUCHADNEZZAR II destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple and exiled the Jews to Babylonia. Fifty years later (537 BC), CYRUS THE GREAT of Persia conquered Babylonia and permitted the Jews to return to Jerusalem and rebuild their Temple.

Overlooked facts in the current Middle East situation.
1. Nationhood and Jerusalem. Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam.
2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.
3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E., the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.
4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 C.E. lasted no more than 22 years.
5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.
6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.
7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.
8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.
9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.
10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.
11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.
12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own peoples' lands.
Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.
13. The Arab - Israeli Conflict: The Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.
14. The P.L.O.'s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.
15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.
16. The U.N. Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.
17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel. 18. The U.N was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.
19. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
20. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

Saddam's Suicide Bomber Reward Yields Deadly Results
It's been a month since Iraqi madman Saddam Hussein decided to boost the reward he offers to suicide bombers from $10,000 to $25,000 - and the pay raise is apparently paying off.
Since Iraq upped the suicide incentive, 12 Palestinian bombers have successfully blown themselves to smithereens inside Israel, including one man who killed 25, the Associated Press noted today.
The families of three human hand grenades recently reported that they received $25,000 checks.
The kamikaze killers are also often honored as fallen heroes, with their families reaping praise for their sacrifice to the cause. A particularly deadly bomber may even be memorialized with a street named after him.
One pro-Iraqi Palestinian leader told the AP the support payments for relatives often helped potential bombers to make up their minds.
"Some people stop me on the street, saying if you increase the payment to $50,000 I'll do it immediately," he added in apparent jest.
Counterfeit Money Found In the meantime, searches of Arafat's compound revealed forged dollars and Israeli money as well as plates for printing money, Sheetrit said.
Tuesday, April 2, 2002
JERUSALEM - Israeli troops Monday kept up their siege of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's bureau in the West Bank town of Ramallah while confronting Palestinians in Bitunia, Kalkilya and Tulkarim.
A senior security source who briefed reporters said the operation would widen drastically and eventually spread to the Gaza Strip.
The official indicated the Israelis were after Fatah Tanzim's leader in the West Bank, Marwan Barghouti.
The operation, code named Defense Shield, would take weeks, Justice Minister Meir Sheetrit said. "If there will be a need, we shall go from place to place. We will look for all of them. Whoever has a role in terror will be caught. Today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, he will pay the price."
The senior security source said he believed this time that the army was doing real work, unlike the previous sweep through West Bank towns and refugee camps in raids that seemed designed just to deliver a warning.
Israeli soldiers were surrounding Arafat's chambers in Ramallah, reportedly one wall away from the Palestinian leader.
Israel has promised the United States not to harm Arafat. Minister Sheetrit said 70 people they were looking for were with Arafat. They include Fuad Shubaky, who arranged a massive arms smuggling from Iran, the people allegedly involved in Tourism Minister Rehavaam Zeevi's assassination, and the head of the General Intelligence in the West Bank, Brig. Gen. Tawfik Tirawi.
Palestinian security officials denied Israeli claims that suspects were staying in Arafat's office and said that Israel made such claims as an excuse to break into Arafat's office and harm him.
The Israeli security source said the troops were reluctant to force their way through because Arafat might be hurt, and the situation remained in a stalemate.
However, he stressed, "We are not going to leave Ramallah without arresting all the fugitives."
Counterfeit Money Found
In the meantime, searches of Arafat's compound revealed forged dollars and Israeli money as well as plates for printing money, Sheetrit said.
Tanks were surrounding the Palestinian Preventive Security headquarters, where the Israelis believed some 250 people have taken shelter. One of them could be Fatah Tanzim's leader, Barghouti, but the Israeli intelligence is not sure of his presence.
Sheetrit said Fatah Tanzim was guilty of five times more attacks this year than Hamas.
The senior security source said Barghouti transferred money from Arafat to a cousin who then gave it to attackers.
Until Monday, Israeli units were not supposed to attack Barghouti. The Israeli authorities were concerned that killing him would make him a martyr and prompt a wave of terrorist attacks. The Israelis regarded him as a leader with whom they might eventually negotiate.
"Now there are no negotiations. There is no one to talk to and we are going to put our hands on everyone involved with terror," the official said.
The source said Palestinian Security Chief Col. Jibril Rajoub, who they claim might be shielding Marwan Barghouti, was not on Israel's wanted list because he did not send attackers.
The source belittled Rajoub as a swollen balloon who talks a lot but does not like to fight and is a hostage of the Tanzim militia.
However, Col. Mohamed Dahlan, chief of preventative security in Gaza, said Israeli sources have confined Rajoub to the Betonia headquarters, where he claims Israli tanks are trying to break in.
Long live Mossad and the secular and modern nation of Israel.
