Your Mission On This Earth (as a Muslim) Is To Fight For Islam And To Kill Or Be Killed

The title comes from the words of Wafa Sultan, and refers to Qur'an 9:111 which promises Paradise to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah:

On a two-week "under the radar" visit to Australia, Syrian-born Wafa Sultan secretly met both sides of federal politics and Jewish community leaders, warning them that all Muslims needed to be closely monitored in the West.

In an interview with The Australian, Dr Sultan -- who shot to recognition last year following an interview on al-Jazeera television in which she attacked Islam and the prophet Mohammed -- said Muslims were "brainwashed" from an early age to believe Western values were evil and that the world would one day come under the control of Sharia law.

The US-based psychiatrist -- who has two fatwas (religious rulings) issued against her to be killed -- warned that Muslims would continue to exploit freedom of speech in the West to spread their "hate" and attack their adopted countries, until the Western mind grasped the magnitude of the Islamic threat.

"You're fighting someone who is willing to die," Dr Sultan told The Australian in an Arabic and English interview. "So you have to understand this mentality and find ways to face it. (As a Muslim) your mission on this earth is to fight for Islam and to kill or to be killed. You're here for only a short life and once you kill a kafir, or a non-believer, soon you're going to be united with your God."

... Dr Sultan said Islam was a "political ideology" that was wrongly perceived to have a moderate and hardline following.

"That's why the West has to monitor the majority of Muslims because you don't know when they're ready to be activated. Because they share the same basic belief, that's the problem," said the 50-year-old, who was last year featured in Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

... "I believe the only way is to expose the Muslims to different cultures, different thoughts, different belief systems," said Dr Sultan, who is completing her first book, The Escaped Prisoner: When Allah is a Monster.

More of what Dr. Sultan has to say at "Warning to West on 'evil of Islam,'" by Richard Kerbaj. While Dr. Sultan's warnings should be taken seriously, and surely we must realize that the "Islamist" threat is as serious as a heart attack, the point that she makes about the importance of exposing Muslims to different cultures, different thoughts, different belief systems," more or less enforces my own belief that there are many truly moderate Muslims who have in fact been exposed to different cultures, different thoughts, different belief systems," particularly here in America, and who are not as Dr. Sultan describes them. This having been said, one cannot discount her warning, and both Muslims and non-Muslims should heed her advice. We are indeed "fighting someone who is willing to die" and there are far too many people in the West that have so far disregarded the terrible danger from the Islamists that confronts us.
