Why Peace Is Impossible

Why Peace Is Impossible: Gladstone had part of the answer:
So long as there is this book, there will be no peace in the world. Holding up a Qur'an in the House of Commons; quoted in Rafiq Zakaria, Muhammad and the Quran (Penguin Books, 1991), p. 59.

John Quincy Adams elaborated on the concept. [Bold font emphasis added.]
He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE [capitals in original].
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus…

    According to expert opinion, there can be no peace while the Qur'an has influence and until Islam is extinct.  But those opinions lack probative evidence. My case is not dependent on expert opinions, but on relevant, verifiable evidence which I intend to exhibit to you in a series of posts on this subject.

    Peace is impossible because of the existence of believing Muslims who obey Allah's imperatives and emulate Muhammad's sunnah.


8:2. The believers are only those who, when Allâh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur'ân) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);

8:3. Who perform As-Salât (Iqâmat­as­Salât) and spend out of that We have provided them.

8:4. It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).

8:5. As your Lord caused you (O Muhammad ) to go out from your home with the truth, and verily, a party among the believers disliked it;

    The meanings of 'fear', 'spend' and 'go out'  require some contextual searching to discover their meaning and define Believers. Fortunately, we do not need to engage in that research because other verses are more explicit.
9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success

49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allâh and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh. Those! They are the truthful.

    Believers sold their souls to Allah for admission to Jannah so they fight in his cause,  killing and being killed.  Unfortunately, the issue is too deep and complex to settle in one blog post. Other posts in this series will delve into:
