Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Myth vs Fact #485


Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.14

O9.14

When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.

If the prisoner becomes a Muslim (O: before the caliph chooses any of the four alternatives) then he may not be killed, and one of the other three alternatives is chosen.

Bottom Line: Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on prisoners of war?  Why is it so detailed?
Why does the “religion of peace” have a legal ruling on captive women & children?  The incongruity stands out like a pig’s snout.

  1. Did you ever read “1984” by George Orwell? It’s called doublespeak

  2. My beard has become long and white since I read Orwell’s book. Islam sets a semantic trap for the unwary with its duality.

    Dar ul-Islam vs Dar ul-Harb. Peace is what happens when Dar ul-Harb is entirely conquered. Islam makes peace by conquering rebels against Allah.
