If you are not aware of the massive worldwide, well organized & financed deception about Islam, then you are probably not familiar with the term Islamic supremacism, and a lot of what you are about to see will seem impossible to believe. In fact, if you consider yourself well informed, it is self evident the only way this could all be true is if there was a great deception at work that is even confusing many peaceful tolerant Muslims who will sincerely defend what they believe is true about Islamic theology, when what they are really describing are their own personal beliefs, possibly learned from their families and friends rather than religious schools or authorities with Ph.D’s in Islamic jurisprudence from the world’s leading Islamic universities - where a “version” of Islam is taught that is not taught in any Western university.

This deception has had a major impact on what’s been taught about Islam in Western universities for over 40 years, and has permeated government, main stream media (MSM), universities, and society with many myths making it virtually impossible to talk about in good company because everyone is working from a different ‘fact’ sheet with many conclusions based on heart more than what’s true. It’s created a situation where it simply takes too long for most people to figure it out. But you cannot see the concern or find realistic ways to live with it if you don’t even know what it is.

I began creating this site to have a way to talk with people who would react to the subject like ‘I can’t take you seriously’, or ‘when did you become such a far right wing bigot?’ It was frustrating because if people can’t agree on certain significant provable truths, then any rational discussion is impossible. Now I can back up every claim I got mocked for.

This is not politically left or right, or my opinion, or promoting any religion. It’s a sequential guide through a series of irrefutable facts that expose some widely believed myths and deceptions about Islam, that reveals a very different picture than what academia, politicians, and mainstream media (MSM) describe. It assumes you know nothing about it, which would actually make it easier, so if you don’t skip around, and view all the mandatory red links, each page will make sense. If you skip ahead you will see things you may not believe because you missed that part. There are enough optional blue links to make it irrelevant what my qualifications are - the quality of evidence and sources allow you to fact check as you go whenever you find something unbelievable.

  1. Watch this short clip of 3 U.S. presidents declaring Islam is peaceful and tolerant.

If Islam is really peaceful and tolerant, and jihad terror has nothing to do with religion, have you ever wondered how it is possible for so many Muslims worldwide, including converts, to completely misunderstand their religion in exactly the same way? And if there is such widespread misunderstanding, why is there not a single visible major program in any mosque to teach against this misunderstanding, especially to new converts in the West? Or have you always assumed there was just because a polite Muslim spokesperson in a suit says so? Have you ever seen anyone who claims such a thing to name the program, show its literature explaining the correct interpretation of the Koranic verses that jihadists quote, and verify exactly where these courses are given, and how many have taken the course? You will find nothing like that exists, and if you find one please send me the details.

Ibn Warraq is a Pakistani scholar of Islam and Koranic historian:

  1. QUESTIONER: “We have the ... so-called Cairo Declaration of 1992, which is basically an Islamic replacement for the United Nations’ 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. So is the Islamic version ... Islam or Islamism? What’s the difference?”

  1. WARRAQ: “I often think that this is a way of skirting the question... I like to make a distinction that I actually owe to Bernard Lewis; ... It’s a very useful distinction that he made between Islam One, Two, and Three. Islam One is what’s in the Koran, what the Prophet Mohammed did and enjoyed. Islam Two is the sharia and the theological construct that we call Islam, as developed by the theologians over the centuries. Islam Three is Islamic civilization, which is what Muslims actually did do as opposed to what they should have done, what actually happened in Islamic history. Often Islam Three—that is, Islamic civilization—was far more tolerant than what Islam One and Two demanded. For example, until very recently, Islamic society (Islam Three) was far more tolerant about homosexuality than the West was, whereas Islam One and Islam Two more firmly condemned it. There are several ambiguous passages in the Koran, but certainly Islam Two, the sharia, condemns homosexuality.

  1. Islamic history has never been a relentless series of theocratic governments; it has varied from century to century, ruler to ruler. Sometimes it has been very intolerant, and sometimes it has been very tolerant. Just look at some of the poets who were given free rein - for example, al-Mahawi, an Iraqi who was certainly an agnostic and very probably an atheist, but he was very critical. He was left alone; no one bothered him, so this is witness to the period of tolerance. This is, for me, the best way to approach the situation. For example, some of the terrorists are taking literally what is in the Koran. There are all sorts of intolerant passages in the Koran about killing infidels and not taking Jews and Christians as friends. It’s undeniably there, and you can’t get away from it. Chapter four in the Koran: you can’t get away from the fact that it gives men the power to beat women. It’s no good pretending that somehow the real Islam is tolerant, the real Islam is feminist, and so on. There is a great deal of confusion because people do not want to tarnish with the same brush a billion believers. We don’t want to be too crude in our defamation. We don’t want to call all Muslims terrorists, so the best way is this distinction between Islam One, Two, Three.” (Modernity and the Muslims, July 2010)

This site is mostly about One & Two, and will be clear if it’s Three. Not making the distinction confuses many conversations. In 2007 Turkish PM Erdogan commented on the term “moderate Islam”, often used in the West to describe his AK Party,

  1. “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

He’s talking about One & Two, not secular Turkish Muslim culture that existed there in the 20th century.

There are many terms used deceptively with vague or multiple meanings, and they will be Capitalized™ with a trademark to give you heads up to consider what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. For example key Muslim Brotherhood theorist Said Qutb, whose influence Georgetown Professor John Esposito described as “almost impossible  to exaggerate”,¹ wrote that he wants Peace™ and to Build Bridges™ with the non-Muslim world. That sounds Moderate™ until you see him explain they are one way bridges to Islam, and Peace™ will only come after the entire world lives under Islamic law - by any means necessary. He has similarly inverted definitions for Religion of Peace™, Defensive Jihad™, No Compulsion™ in religion, Freedom™, and others.

This deception has produced many celebrated Experts™ in the West who say things that are demonstrably false about Islam, in many cases according to all of the most authoritative Muslim theologians for over 1300 years who agree with each other in something very important called scholarly consensus. When that happens it means they are either part of the deception knowingly, AKA the deceivers and liars - or they are one of the deceived and don’t really know what they are talking about. It’s often difficult to know whether an Expert™ is lying or deceived, especially because there are well meaning Muslim Reformers™ who say many of the same things as the liars - for example that none of what you are about to see exists, or that the facts I report may be true but represent only a narrow view held by a Tiny Minority of Extremist™ religious leaders who are trying to Hijack™ a Peaceful Tolerant Religion™. This site will expose that to be the biggest myth of our time. To the contrary, it will prove beyond a reasonable doubt, in the absence of similar quantity and quality contrary documentary evidence, that even though there are many peaceful tolerant Muslims in the world (Islam Three), there is no peaceful tolerant School or Institution of orthodox Islam (One & Two) - of course depending on the meaning of Peaceful Tolerant™. The simplest way to prove that is to focus on one aspect of Islamic theology that is potentially the most threatening to every non-Muslim in the world - Islamic supremacism and jihad (IS&J) - and what the core texts (Islam One) and theologians from all 5 orthodox schools (Islam Two) have always said about it. As you are about to see, the institutionalized discrimination and harassment of non-Muslims (dhimmis) living under Islamic law has always existed in Islamic theology and never been rejected by any orthodox school or sect of Islam. This is true even though some Muslim cultures (Islam Three) have ignored it. In 1856 the Ottoman Empire officially abolished it and stopped enforcing it under pressure from Western governments. Then Egypt and others followed, and it continued with Arab nationalist leaders in the mid 20th century. But these were political changes made in the Islam 3 of the day, it does not mean that Islamic universities and imams from any of the 5 schools starting teaching, writing, and speaking about some new understanding of Islamic supremacism and jihad. As Ibn Warraq described above, a period of relative tolerance does not mean Islamic theology somehow became tolerant or reformed - it didn’t. What is taught today at al-Azhar University in Cairo about Islamic supremacism and the dhimmi State has remained virtually the same since it was founded in 970. Today an Islamic revival is underway and its enforcement is coming back in the Muslim world from Malaysia and Indonesia to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Africa, the Middle East, Brunei, and the new Islamic State.

Islam’s hostility to the entire non-Muslim world is not motivated by poverty, poor education, or local grievances. Study after study shows the opposite. Here are 22 senior Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders, 14 of them with Ph.D’s, 1 Cardiothoracic surgeon, 1 Chief of Neurology, a Swiss banker, and an economist. Here are 27 more educated U.S. MB operatives named in a 2013 Egyptian newspaper investigative report. This site will list the educational backgrounds, professional experience, and quote the opinions on IS&J of over 100 prominent theologians, imams, and Muslim politicians.

  1. Pictured below is a 14th century, 1200 page manual of Sunni jurisprudence, Reliance of the Traveler: Tools For The Worshipper, available free online and found in American mosques. I want to clear it as an expert reference to use later like I just did to explain the term scholarly consensus above.

FCNA, IIIT, and Al-Azhar University certified


             Written in 14th century, certified in 20th                                               English and Arabic

Compiled by Ahmad Ibn Naqib al-Misri (1302 - 1368AD) after the so called Golden Age of Islam™ and before Western colonialism. He based it on the previous well known work of Al-Nawawi, Riyad-us Saliheen, also found in American mosques. Then in modern times its content and english translation was certified by 3 major Islamic authorities that appear in the book:

  1. 1)Al-Azhar University in Cairo - some call the ‘Vatican’ of Sunni Islam where Obama gave his 2009 speech to the Muslim world - certified in 1991:

  1. “conforms to the practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni community." (Reliance of The Traveller, p. XX)

  1. 2) 2 major U.S. Muslim orgs, FCNA and IIIT in 1990:

  1. “There is no doubt that this translation is a valuable and important work, whether as a textbook for teaching Islamic jurisprudence to English speakers, or as a legal reference for use by scholars... From a purely academic point of view, this translation is superior to anything produced by Orientalists in the way of major Islamic works... (Reliance of The Traveller p. XViii)

That means you can take the credibility of this book on Sunni Islamic jurisprudence to the bank.

  1. Watch this clip to see one of the ways facts and rational Dialogue™ about Islam are being suppressed in American universities.

  1. While examining Islam critically is forbidden in many Muslim countries, it doesn’t deserve any special protection in the U.S. where Muslims make up less than 1% of the population. To the contrary, there is enough controversy and confusion about it today that it deserves a closer look even if the ridiculous notion is true that peaceful tolerant Muslims are more sensitive to insults than other human beings to the point where reporting on the beliefs of other Muslims they claim to strongly disagree with is so offensive to them it will make them flip sides because they think I am talking about them. I am obviously not talking about them any more than headlines in the mid 20th century like “White supremacists lynch black man” were talking about me or any other white people I knew, and it never occurred to me to be offended enough to join the KKK - that would have been irrational and paranoid. This site is not about Muslims, who are people that behave in a variety of ways (like any other religion’s adherents), it’s about the texts and teachings of a belief system called Islam that urges Muslims to behave a certain way. Personal belief and practice of any religion may be different from what is actually taught.

  1. The reason there is so much effort to discourage investigating the religious roots of jihadist groups and IS&J ideology, and to suppress, deceive and lie about it, is because any serious look reveals the mainstream teachings of all 5 orthodox schools of Islam as they have always been, with Mohammad as the perfect example of a human being to be copied in his words and deeds - which is exactly what the Caliph of the Islamic State Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi is doing. He has a Ph.D. in Islamic law.

  1. Watch this short clip of Andrew McCarthy and Robert Spencer on reform.

  1. Hitler 1924:

  1. “... in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”  Mein Kampf
