A little less than every five hours, somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack.
These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the”religion of peace.”
As of today, the total was 20,022. The 20,000th came a few days ago when a Jewish woman was cut in pieces in Iran by religious radicals “intent on expanding a mosque.”
Some 1,800 deadly Muslim terror attacks happen each year, amounting to about 150 a month and five a day.
The purpose of the website, according to operator Glen Roberts, a pseudonym, is to put the level of violence being inflicted by Muslims in perspective.
“I started watching [the Council on American-Islamic Relations] in the months after 9/11,” said Roberts, “and I was astonished by the self-absorption. Each day people are maimed and killed explicitly in the name of Islam while this organization complains about headscarves and hurt feelings.
“I thought,” he said, “that maybe if I started documenting the violence, it would inspire a sense of moral perspective on their part.
“I was wrong, of course.”
He said he monitors acts of Muslim violence from a range of news sources that are reliable, when “it can be reasonably inferred that the perpetrator was motivated to some degree by their Islamic faith.”
“I do not post anything that I believe to be false,” he said. ” … This is not to say that mistakes haven’t been made, but they are unintentional and relatively rare.”
Fatal attacks that are reported to him only are posted when they can be verified with a reference to a news sources that he would consider reliable.
He said while he’s not been able to convince Muslims that their faith is violent, he hopes others take notice.
“Critics seem to assume that I’m trying to convince others that they are in mortal danger or that Muslims are bad people because they are Muslim. This is not true, of course,” he told WND.
“The evidence presented by TheReligionofPeace.com is meant to drive home the message that Islam is not like other religion,” he said. “It is openly supremacist and more vulnerable to violent interpretations. When one religion inspires over 1,500 faith-motivated acts of violence each year while other religions contribute practically none, then it should be obvious that there are unique problems – and it should be OK to say so.”
He wrote that Islam continues to be “an open threat” to Western liberal values, including freedom of conscience.
“There is already pressure against free speech rights, particularly in Europe. We should be highly concerned about the logical path of the current trend regardless of whether or not the full consequences of Muslim immigration and deference to the increasing volume of Muslim demand will be experienced in our lifetime,” he said.
“Judging by the one-way flow of immigration, even Muslims find Islamic countries less livable. What sense does it make to continue importing and catering to an ideology that doesn’t work elsewhere – particularly when Islamic immigrants as a group are the most notoriously resistant to integration and acceptance of Western values?”
He said Muslims in the West who say that Islam is a religion of peace are generally sincere.
“They want to believe that their religion is superior, which wouldn’t be the case if it brought violence instead of peace,” he said. “Therefore, they convince themselves and others that Islam is really just the Judeo-Christian value system an Arabic vocabulary.”
He said the “far less pleasant reality is that those who want to believe in ‘peaceful Islam’ have a lot more of Islam to ignore than do the jihadis.”
Roberts wrote: “On a week in which two suicide bombers slaughtered over 54 Christian and Druze and Sunni extremists massacred nearly 200 Shiites in Iraq, TROP recorded our 20,000th Islamic terror attack since 9/11. It happened to be the stabbing and dismemberment of a Jewish woman in her Iranian home by religious radicals intent on expanding a mosque.”
A UPI report explained the Jewish woman was stabbed to death and her family blamed her death on a religious motivation.
The victim, identified in the report as just Tuba N., was attacked allegedly by her Muslim neighbors after they had been trying to drive her family from their home and confiscate the property.
“Thugs broke into her home, tied up her two sisters who were living with her, and repeatedly stabbed her to death,” said the report.
A list of headlines on the site was equally thought-provoking. The site listed a musician in Mali who was ordered into silence on the threat of having her tongue cut out, a teen in India who was found with chains around his hands and feet who claimed he had been chained after trying to leave a Muslim madrassa.
Then there was the Australian stabbed for “insulting the prophet,” advocacy for child marriages, the massacre of 10 Christians, a 15-year-old killed for dating a boy, a tailor now dead for making “inappropriate” women’s clothes and a gang-rape and murder.
The site explains the Quran has at least 109 verses that “call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.”
“Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.”
The site continues: “Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.”
One verse, for example, states, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah.”
The site says there are 10 reasons Islam is not a “religion of peace.” One is the thousands of terror acts committed in the name of Islam, while acts committed in the names of other religions have been minimal. More people are killed by Muslim terrorists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition. The daily Muslim terror toll is more than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 50 years.
Muhammad, meanwhile, “had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion,” the site explains.
“Muhammad inspired his men to war with the basest of motives, using captured loot, sex and a gluttonous paradise as incentives. He beheaded captives, enslaved children and raped women captured in battle.
“Muslims continued their jihad against other religions for 1400 years, checked only by the ability of non-Muslims to defend themselves. To this day, not a week goes by that Islamic fundamentalists do not attempt to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists explicitly in the name of Allah,” the site explains.
“Islam spreads like a virus. It radiates from Muslim countries that are too diseased to support it and into healthy systems that are that way because they have had the luxury of developing apart from Islam. Once in the host system, the Islam virus uses the existing machinery to make replicas of itself. Over time, the host makes unilateral concessions to the religion, feeding and appeasing it in the vain hope that this supremacist ideology can be tamed,” the site warns.
“In a matter of time, the entire system groans to an agonizing death and assumes the condition of the diseased nations from which Muslims originally fled.”
WND previously reported Roberts received an email threatening: “We will kill you. Like this,” referring to an attached photograph of a man who had been beheaded, his body resting chest down on grass and his lifeless head placed in the middle of his back. Another photograph showed a bloody knife.
The website notes attacks have been documented in the U.S., Iraq, India, Sudan, Algeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria, England, Thailand, Spain, Egypt, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Germany, Canada and more than 60 other nations
In one recent week, Nov. 24-30, there were 53 jihad attacks resulting in 272 dead bodies and 743 with injuries.
