“I want you to listen to me carefully tonight because I might be misunderstood. Probably will be. But I believe this with all my heart .…The God we all worship here this evening is not Allah… The Muslim God Allah is a heathen deity. Allah is a cruel deity. Allah is a demon deity.”
These were the words of Pastor James McConnell at the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle Church in Belfast on Sunday, May 18, when he delivered his controversial sermon. (Click here for video). A politically correct storm ensued.
Facilitated by political correctness over the past couple of decades, our world has become a muddled place, our previously accepted values have taken a battering, and ‘bad’ is now ‘good’ and vice versa. Criticism of Islam, which is now ‘The Religion of Peace’, is a no-go area, and any critics are classed as ‘Islamophobes’, dismissed as ‘bigots’ however valid their concerns are, and are suffering from a mental disorder.Pastor McConnell’s words hit home like a bombshell for the celebrants of multiculturalism. Amidst the furor were calls for charges of ‘hate speech’ to see him silenced because freedom of speech, freedom of expression, or merely voicing an opinion that is contrary to the narrative of dhimmitude, all disappeared a long time ago.
Unfortunately governments and media alike do a very good job of keeping the masses ignorant to the dangers of Islam and the impact that mass immigration of Muslims into the West is having. For example, the ‘European Convention on Human Rights’ is more concerned with protecting hate preachers instead of the intended victims; and the spineless media always choose to look the other way and exonerate Islam after every Islamic-inspired terrorist attack.
It is widely accepted that ‘Prophet’ Muhammad preached largely unsuccessfully in Mecca for around 13 years, and tried to commit suicide several times because he believed he was a madman. Muhammad spoke the Devil’s words, known as the ‘Satanic Verses’, (which remained in the memory of the first 150 years of Muslim history), before he was finally chased out of town along with 150 followers of his cult. This illustrated that Muhammad acted upon his own desires and rejected ‘God’s Word’, just like Satanism, and this would be a recurring theme in the Qur’an.
Islam’s foundational texts reveal that global domination is the goal, not peaceful coexistence. Most people have not read the Qur’an so are unaware of Muhammad’s behaviour when he left preaching in Mecca for Medina, including debauchery, theft, rape, violence, etc., which nurture many Muslims supremacist and expansionist worldviews today. In the Qur’an, the books of Mecca and Medina are mixed together, and apologists will point to the more peaceful Mecca verses and ignore the Medina verses to portray Islam as being benign.
There are certainly parallels to be drawn between the following of Muhammad and ‘Theistic Satanism’ aka ‘Devil Worshipping’, which believes Satan is a supernatural force to worship.
However Atheistic Satanism, for example the Church ofSatan founded by Anton Szandor LaVey (pictured here), who wrote the Satanic Bible, opposes Christianity (just like Islam) and believes in ‘The Nine Satanic Statements’. LaVey, while in a defensive mode (comparable to the Islamic doctrine of ‘Taqiyya’ when Muslim apologists play down the hateful passages in the Qur’an), admitted that the image that he presented publicly was deceptive, declaring:
“If they’re at all intelligent [other true Satanist’s] …they’ll realise that there’s only so much I can say publicly…I will not advance things in print which make my position untenable…How long would the Church of Satan have lasted if I hadn’t appeased and outraged in just the right combination? It required a certain amount of discretion and diplomacy to balance the outrage.” (Lucifer Rising, p. 133)
The Qur’an repeatedly states that Allah is the ‘best deceiver’, and Muhammad’s actions had much in common with LaVey’sAtheistic Satanism. For example, Atheistic Satanism represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek; indulgence instead of abstinence; kindness to those who deserve it (fellow Muslims but not non-Muslims), instead of love wasted on ingrates!; and all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification. (This does not necessarily mean belief in the Devil but that an individual is all important and can have the same traits as Satan).
Yet other aspects of Muhammad’s hedonistic behaviour draw parallels with Theistic Satanism ideals, because out of countless examples, he indulged in sex with a 9-year-old girl (which “was done by the inspiration of Allah“) and beat her (Sahih Muslim Book 004, Hadith Number 2127), kept war booty, ordered dissenters and prisoners of war to be killed, had 11 wives, kept sex slaves, etc.
Muhammad also instructed his warriors to indulge in depraved behavior, e.g. raping captive women as a reward for their work in subjugating or converting more people to Islam, which in turn brought him more power, wealth and influence. In the event of death (aka ‘martyrdom’), his warriors believed they would take part in an eternal orgy in paradise.
Muhammad indulged in every sin imaginable but told his ‘rank and file’ Muslim followers that he alone had Allah’s permission and was the ‘perfection’ of Man. Ordinary Muslims had to abstain from all these indulgencies but their reward for being submissive would hopefully be entrance into paradise and avoiding the hell-fire too. “Allah is a god of fear and terrorism that commands destruction upon those who refuse to convert to Islam”; it is the ultimate program of mind control via submission and life-long enslavement until death. If Islam is not a cult, then I do not know what is!
However the epitome of evil in film and the media is what is often referred to as ‘Satanism’, yet it could be said that: “Worshipping Satan doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll turn to evil, but it does give some people the inner strength to carry out nefarious deeds.” (In many ways that statement could have ‘Worshipping Satan’ substituted with ‘Worshipping Allah’ or ‘Following Muhammad’). The same can be said that being a Muslim in itself does not make an individual evil, but Islamic teachings can incite people to hate and violence.
Islam’s views in relation to non-believers results in a negative impact for the ‘Kuffar’ wherever large-scale Muslim immigration occurs. For example, epidemics of Muslim grooming gangs and statistically, rapes often soar. Muslims become overrepresented in prisons, there is stealth jihad, at least 23,000 Islamic-inspired deadly terror attacks since 9/11 alone, civil disruption, the call for Shari’a implementationand other special privileges, etc.
All this is facilitated and then tolerated to a great degree because it is either done in the name of Allah, it follows in Muhammad’s example or the associated Islamic culture ‘justifies’ this behaviour (as explained here in this presentation by Dr Mark Durie at the Q Society of Australia in Melbourne).
Dark Forces of Satanism and Islam in Action
Any violent crime or murder with a satanic element unnerves people with the evilness of the act and the dark forces involved. Here is one example:
“Obviously, the biggest sacrifice you can give the dark lord Satan is to spill blood for him, and a quartet of Russian devil worshippers did so with gusto in 2008. Led by the charismatic and disturbing Nikolai Ogolobyak, the group lured four teenagers into the woods outside of Yaroslavl and proceeded to stab each one of them exactly 666 times before cutting off their genitals, scalping them and removing some of the most tender meat to cook and eat over a bonfire. After some of the remains were found in a pit outside of Ogolobyak’s house, the four were arrested and sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison.”
Absolutely horrific isn’t it? Yet comparisons between the above report and Islam can be made. Firstly, look at Quran 4:95:
“Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] – other than the disabled – and the mujahedeen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahedeen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahedeen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward.”
Spill blood for Satan? Allah’s greatest reward is for those that fight in his name. It is verses like this, vast amounts of Jew-hatred and many of Muhammad’s final commands from his death bed, for example Chapter 9 of the Qur’an, that call for open-ended warfare against the non-believers, that continually inspire so many Jihadists. To say otherwise would be burying your head in the sand. There are many other examples of course, such as spilling one’s own blood in a suicide bombing (aka ‘martyrdom’) to please Allah and to be rewarded on the ‘Day of Judgment’.
Cutting off genitals? Just one example of Jihadists torturing and castrating their victims was during the brutal Westgate Mall siege in Kenya in 2013:
“Al-Shabaab jihadists raped, tortured, beheaded, dismembered, castrated, gouged out eyes, amputated fingers and hung hostages on hooks from the roof. According to a forensic medical doctor, ‘They [the al-Shabaab attackers] removed eyes, ears, noses. Fingers are cut by pliers, noses ripped by pliers’… ‘Those are not allegations. Those are f****** truths,’… ‘They removed balls, eyes, ears and nose. They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil then they tell you to write your name with the blood. They drive knives inside a child’s body. Actually, if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers.’ There were also reports that hostages were beheaded and their heads thrown out of the windows.”
The terror and pain cannot get any worse than for those poor souls who were out enjoying themselves at the Westgate Mall that fateful day. Imagine if something like this was done by Satanists in Britain? The horror would be immense, but as it is part of ‘Islamic Holy Jihad’ we hardly batter an eyelid anymore.
Eating organs? Human cannibalism is considered amongst the depths of depravity, but who can forget the images from the civil war in Syria of Abu Sakkar, “a Syrian ‘rebel’ commander who cut out the heart of a fallen enemy soldier, and ate it before a cheering crowd of his men”? The footage is horrific, and the aim was to instill fear in the Syrian regime with the level of barbarity they were facing.
Another disgusting example was the “murders of IDF reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z”l) in Ramallah in October 2000. While in custody some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside and one PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them – stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd.”… “Their bodies were tossed to a pack of bloodthirsty rioters, who proceeded to tear their bodies apart with their bare hands and eat their organs.”
That is just scratching the surface as anything from beheadings, to raiding and wiping whole villages out, to the kidnapping hundreds of schoolgirls, can occur in the name of Jihad.
Satanism and Islam in Perspective
It is estimated there are between 50,000 to 100,000 Satanists globally, but their impact is negligible compared to Islamic-inspired violence, conflicts and even stealth jihad that occurs daily.An estimated 270 million people have been murdered by Islamic Jihadists over the past 1400 years, slaughtering those unwilling to embrace their so-called religion like animals, far surpassing the death toll of Communism and Nazism combined. Yet history is erased and Islam is a protected species in the UK with the ‘Equality Act 2010’, effectively a blasphemy law, and Islam is to be taught to our schoolchildren.
The majority of the estimated 1.6 billion Muslims are undoubtedly peaceful, but the percentage of Muslims supporting terrorism is frightening yet justified, because it is inspired by teachings from the Qur’an. Also Jihad is partly-funded by Zakat, which is an obligation for all Muslims who are able to do so.
Pastor James McConnell expressed his opinion and predicted the firestorm he would generate in this topsy-turvy politically correct world we now live in. Dhimmitude, therefore ignoring the real danger, so as not to cause offence, is now the order of the day.
Pastor Paul Burns of Adullam Christian Fellowship Church in Sandy Row, South Belfast, voiced his support for Pastor James McConnell by saying:
“I understand exactly where he is coming from. That is not building up hatred against Muslim people but the teaching of Islam. The Koran teaches that all infidels who do not convert to Islamic teaching, then it is correct to be able to kill all those who oppose the teaching of the Koran. When Pastor McConnell is talking about it as a direct teaching of Satan – it is.”
If only more people were able to speak more freely, we could all understand the dangers that non-Muslims face with the ideology of Islam, instead of waiting for the inevitable powder keg to explode.
