“The teachings of Islam.”
I wonder how long it will take for the experts in the Democratic Party to dispute the Taliban’s interpretation of the Koran.
So they beheaded the hostaqge with a sword???
What is Islam based on?
Mohammed went into “trances” and fits (like epileptic fits) when he was given the “word of God” and would shout out what he was told. These would be written down by his followers. This is the makeup of the Koran.
When Mohammed was just walking and talking and acting like “normal”, his words and deeds were written down by his followers and this went into the Hadith. Now, acting “normal” for Mohammed was taking 12+ wives (including a 6 year old), taking slaves (including sex slaves), executing infidels, conducting raids for treasure, etc.
Now, this is where it gets complicated.
A large part of the words he spoke in trances were “taken back” by Mohammed. He determined them to be the work of the devil (thus they are called the “Satanic Verses” and these are the same verses that Mr. Salman Rushdie got in trouble for writing about).
Now, how Mohammed determined which verses were from God and which were from Satan I do not know.
Also, there were literally dozens of widely different versions of the Koran and Hadith floating around for several hundred years after Mohammed death until a Fatwah was decreed to destroy all but one version. Now, even Mohammed could not remember what he was told by God and forgot it (those are his words as written in the Hadith) so I do not know how the powers in charge decided which was the correct version.
Also according to the Hadith, Mohammed turned people into monkeys, you can determine a child’s sex depending on whether the male or female has an orgasm first (that advice came directly from the Angel Gabriel), dogs and cats are evil and should be killed, that the devil lives in your nose at night (and how to get rid of him in the morning), chess is forbidden, muslims have one intestine while infidels have seven, dont pray looking up or your eyes will be snatched away, that one wing of a fly is poison but the other is the cure, that drinking camel urine is good for you and I could go on.
And that Mohammed himself didn’t even know if he was going to heaven. If even Mohammed doesn’t know, what chance does the average muslim have?
And for some non-PC info, Mohammed was described as a white man.
Now, if you can bear it, to compare to the Gospels of New Testament.
Jesus was someone who lived a very humble life and was killed for basically saying he was a King and Son of God (blasphemy) by the powers in charge (Roman and Jewish). The government wanted Jesus destroyed and wanted his growing movement destroyed (as it threatened their power). If, after 3 days, the followers of Jesus proclaimed he has risen from the dead, (just as he predicted), and is truly our Savior, the High Officials would have wanted to destroy such a “myth.” They could have easily done this by producing the dead body of Jesus and saying “Your Messiah is still dead and so is your movement” or producing many eye witnesses of the dead Jesus. But they couldn’t.
The letters that make up the New Testament were written by the eye witnesses of the events of Jesus. They were written in just one generation when many other eye witnesses were still alive. They were written without collusion from other Apostles. Even if any of the Apostles wanted to “add” to the “myth” of Jesus, they would have done so in a very disjointed and easily detectable fashion. Yet, the main Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) that describe the life of Jesus are amazingly in harmony with one another and the small differences are consistent with what we would see today if four people witnessed a major event and wrote about the event apart from each other. The Gospels can be traced back to their sources and are basically unchanged from their originals.
The Bible is the most investigated historical document in the history of the world. It has been investigated by scientists, philosophers and archeologists using technology undreamed of when the Bible was written. It is been desperately tried to be “disproved” for over 2000 years, yet, the Bible still stands as the truth.
The stories of Jesus still make sense to us today. It may be because they are true, it may be because they are based in love or it may be because they were written to tell the people of the Word of God.
they’re reporting now that he died of natural causes.
“Koreans prisoner detained by the movement in Afghanistan were treated according to the teachings of Islam.””
Flush Islam down the toilet!
Actuallt they shot one of the male hostages. With so many females in the group, Taliban are in an awkward position. If thye kill 20 some women, even the UN will have to express outrage, and it will certainly turn even more of the local population against them. Many storeis coming out recently about ordinary Muslims beginning to realize these people are nothing more than animals, and that suicide bombing are not the way to paradise, especially when these monsters have to recruit 14 year old boys to carry them out.
islam strives to win the hearts and minds of infidels throughout the world.
I saw the photo of the hostages. One of the women looked western, but I could not be sure.
Afghanistan: Iran Helps Out
July 25, 2007: The Taliban kidnapped 18 Christian medical missionaries from South Korea (18 women and three men) last week, and demanded the release of imprisoned Taliban, in return for freeing the South Koreans. The Taliban also want South Korea to withdraw its 200 troops (all combat support and civil affairs) in Afghanistan. Police and soldiers soon located the kidnappers, and their captives, and surrounded them. This gives the government considerably more leverage in the negotiations. The government says if will use force, if negotiations fail. So far, negotiations have failed. The Taliban also say they have killed two German captives, but there is no proof. All this kidnapping of foreigners is an ancient practice in a region that has, for thousands of years, been notorious for its banditry and general lawlessness.
The Taliban continue to lose battles, with over a hundred of them killed in the last few days. The Taliban are desperate to protect drug producing operations in Helmand province, but they have been unable to do so. Large (a hundred or men) groups of Taliban try to take on NATO forces, but never succeed. The survivors of these battles flee back to Pakistan, where their descriptions of NATO combat techniques makes it more difficult for the Taliban to recruit new fighters. But the Taliban pays well, better than the Afghan police and army. But the risk is very high, and the quality of Taliban recruits has been declining. The Taliban need the income from heroin and opium production in order to meet their payroll and stay in business.
Afghan border guard officers claim that Iran is openly moving weapons across the border, and giving them to the Taliban. Iran is also allowing the Taliban to receive terrorist training (bomb making) in Iran. Normally, the Taliban is anti-Shia, and during the 1990s persecuted Afghan Shia (often to death). But Islamic radicals hate the United States more than they hate Afghans who kill Shia (the majority sect in Iran. but a minority in Afghanistan and Pakistan). The Iranians expect the Taliban to lay off the Afghan Shia while receiving Iranian aid, and that takes some of the edge off this distasteful business. The Iranians have huge (over 100,000) police and military forces on its eastern border, mainly to deal with Afghan drug smugglers.
من جانبه أكد "حاجي منصور" القائد العسكري في حركة طالبان الإسلامية اليوم أن الأسري الكوريين المحتجزين لدى الحركة في أفغانستان يعاملون طبقا لتعاليم الإسلام . أضاف منصور ÃÂ في تسجيل صوتي بثته فضائية الجزيرة ÃÂ: إن طالبان لن تطلق الأسرى التابعين لكنيسة في كوريا الجنوبية مقابل فدية مالية، مؤكدا أن الحركة لن تتنازل عن شروطها لإطلاق سراحهم.

Talibans interpretation of the Koran.
Of course all right thinking true blue yankee doddle dandy Freepers know they are the real Muslims, and their interpretation of the Koran is the real one.
The radical loser
Der Spiegel ^ | 1/12/05 | Hans Magnus Enzensberger
The movement’s list of favourite foes is also short on surprises: America, the decadent West, international capital, Zionism. The list is completed by the unbelievers, that is to say the remaining 5.2 billion people on the planet. Not forgetting apostate Muslims who may be found among the Shiites, Ibadhis, Alawites, Zaidites, Ahmadiyyas, Wahhabis, Druze, Sufis, Kharijites, Ishmaelites or other religious communities.
Contrary to what the West appears to believe, the destructive energy of Islamist actions is directed mainly against Muslims. This is not a tactical error, not a case of “collateral damage”. In Algeria alone, Islamist terror has cost the lives of at least 50,000 fellow Algerians. Other sources speak of as many as 150,000 murders, although the military and the secret services were also involved. In Iraq and Afghanistan, too, the number of Muslim victims far outstrips the death toll among foreigners. Furthermore, terrorism has been highly detrimental not only to the image of Islam but also to the living conditions of Muslims around the world.
The Islamists are as unconcerned about this as the Nazis were about the downfall of Germany. As the avant-garde of death, they have no regard for the lives of their fellow believers. In the eyes of the Islamists, the fact that most Muslims have no desire to blow themselves and others sky high only goes to show that they deserve no better than to be liquidated themselves. After all, the aim of the radical loser is to make as many other people into losers as possible. As the Islamists see it, the fact that they are in the minority can only be because they are the chosen few.
Immediately execute two of the prisoners they want released.
“The movements list of favourite foes is also short on surprises: America, the decadent West, international capital, Zionism.”
Dang. They sound very much like the liberals these days.
You betcha !
If they came it would be great. My buddies tell tales of the Viet Cong & NVA going many miles out of their way to avoid the ROK troops.
Anyone above the rank of corporal was a black belt in martial arts. Tough was too wimpy a word to describe these guys.
They'd be worthy allies if they're like they used to be.
