Questionable Teachings of Islam:

                                  One Billion People Deceived

        While many Islamic scriptures convey highly commendable moral and ethical guidelines,
        as other religions do, it must be pointed out that Islam also contains many theological
        beliefs about God, Jesus Christ, the early prophets and even Creation which do not agree
        at all with the teachings of the Judeo/Christian faiths. And, if it is true that there is only
        One God, it would be of great importance to know that the one you believe in is the True
        God that created mankind - not the God that mankind "created."

        Muslims attend their weekly gathering of worship on Friday - as this is the day on which
        the Qur'an is said to have been revealed to Muhammad. They are to cleanse themselves
        in  a  purification  process  (wudu)  prior  to  reciting  prayers  or  reading  the  Qur'an.  By
        comparison, the Jewish day of worship is Saturday; as being the day that God rested and
        designated for the Jews to observe; and, Christians worship on Sunday in commemoration
        of the day of the week on which Jesus is said to have resurrected from the tomb after
        being put to death by crucifixion.

        Theologians have pointed out that Islam incorporated a select mixture of traditions and
        rituals originally taught by other pre-Islamic religions, ie: Jewish, Christian and Sabean.
        Members of these religions are mentioned in the Qur'an as, "People  of the Book" and
        were originally exempt from having to convert to Islam. They were, however, obligated
        to pay a tax (jizyah) for being non-Muslim. Meanwhile, the people of pagan tribes in the
        region were forced to convert to Islam or be killed.

        At this point in world history, it is evident that the barbaric acts of terrorism are a reflection
        of the seventh-century ideology that was used by Muhammad and his armies to spread
        the religion of Islam. As the saying goes, history has a way of repeating itself, so it should
        be  of  no  surprise  that  fundamental  Islamic  clerics  seek  to  emulate  Muhammad's
        commands to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemy."- Qur'an 008.060
