Dear Mr. Ali Sina,
I am also an Iranian (my e-mail name is not my real one) who was raised in
. I was living in Germany Iran( Tehran) for 3 years and am now back in . As I realised that Islam is a demonic, primitive and laughable cult, I am worried about education in German schools. Germany
Some months ago, the authorities decided that besides catholic and evangelic religion, which can be chosen by the students (they're not obligatory), Islamic education should also be offered. The scary fact is that a lot of students actually chose to study Islam which is taught by Muslims, of course.
As you know a lot of people who are not ''real'' Muslims just chose it in order to ''show'' everybody that they're Muslims. And the authorities are happy that ''islamic education will be a nationwide subject soon''. I can pretty well imagine how these teachers feed them all these lies about islam, the quran and muhammad, and how these students will try to advertise Islam and try to ''islamize'' the society, their friends and relatives.
I feel really bad about this and would like to ask you what I can do or how I can contribute to their enlightening, as I do not want these things to happen.
Best regards and millions of thanks to you, your website and co-editors.
Ali Sina's reply:
You have all the reasons to be concerned. It is
said that ignorance is bliss. The non-Muslims, particularly the
Europeans are blissfully ignorant of the danger of Islam. Only
ex-Muslims, who have seen the extent of devastation that Islam
causes, can understand the enormity of the threat that this cult
poses to the world and human civilization.
It is a mistake to tolerate Islam. It is a
mistake to grant it the status of religion and count it among other
religions. Islam is not another color in the rainbow of religions.
It is the blackness of the night that aims to obliterate all colors.
Some mistakes are costlier than others.
Sometimes inaction can result in disasters. The mistake that the
world committed during the 1930s when Nazism was gaining strength
cost over fifty million lives. Tolerating Islam today can result in
far more deaths in the near future. If Islam is allowed to take over
the world, we will lose our freedom and our civilization altogether.
Although this is not in the cards and it is unlikely to happen, the
possibility of a nuclear holocaust in which billions of people could
perish is very real. This disaster can be avoided if we act now, put
a brake on the history and change its course, before it reaches the
The only way to avoid this looming danger is to
help Muslims leave Islam. This exodus must begin in large numbers
and soon. However, this is not an easy task. Muslims have not
embraced Islam through reason. Therefore, they will not leave it
through reason. Muslims generally avoid dialogue altogether. They
believe that there is no need to prove Islam and that everyone must
accept it readily once they are called to do so.
Converting to Islam is very much an emotional
rather than rational experience. Emotions act on the most primitive
part of the brain. They are stronger and supersede the rational
mind. As the result, it is not easy to reason with Muslims. They
won’t leave their faith through reason alone. Their strong emotion
towards their faith shields them from reason altogether.
Although the goal of Faith Freedom
International is twofold, i.e. a) help Muslims leave Islam and b)
warn others of the danger of it, the truth is that “a” very much
depends on “b”. Aware of the difficulty to reason with Muslims, my
main focus is on “b". I am of the opinion that the key to reach a
large number of Muslims and make them see that Islam is false is in
the hands of non-Muslims. Muslims will not leave Islam unless the
world denounces their cult.
The Non-Muslims Keep Islam Alive
We constantly hear Muslims quote famous
personalities who have made positive comments about Islam and
praised it. Muslims depend on these comments like fish on water.
They fish them, encourage them, compile and advertise them, because
in the approval of others, they find the validation of their faith.
Their entire self esteem depends on how others perceive them and
what they say about them. This is a key to understand their
idiosyncrasy and devise a strategic plan to combat their Jihad.
This is a key to understand their idiosyncrasy and devise a strategic plan to combat their Jihad.
What if this approval stops? Their entire self
worth crumbles! Doubt creeps in their minds and they lose faith. A
narcissist depends on compliments because in them he finds his
narcissistic supplies. It is through the compliments of others that
the narcissist finds his own validation and raison d'être.
To a certain extent we all are narcissists. We want to be noticed. We seek attention. We want to matter. This craving is so strong that some even commit crime to elicit attention. Vandals destroy, so they can be noticed. Through vandalism they can see their handiwork and feel important. The same psychology is what motivates a serial arsonist or even a serial killer..
American psychiatrist James Gilligan, the author of Preventing Violence, argues that the reason most criminals commit crime it to get respect. He writes: “I used to think that people committed armed robberies in order to get money; and indeed, that is the superficial explanation that they would often prefer to give, to themselves and to us. But when I actually sat down and spoke at length with men who had repeatedly committed such crimes, I would start to hear comments like "I never got so much respect before in my life as I did when I pointed a gun at some dude's face."
The key to helping Muslims leave Islam is to
deprive them of respect. For a narcissist, the most important thing
is the image. Muslims depend on the image of Islam for their self
esteem. Having lost their identity and being left with nothing but
Islam, they feel respected when Islam is respected and insulted when
Islam is insulted. As long as non-Muslims respect Islam,
Muslims will continue clinging to it. They will abandon it once the
entire humanity denounces Islam an regard it as something evil and
As long as non-Muslims respect Islam, Muslims will continue clinging to it. They will abandon it once the entire humanity denounces Islam an regard it as something evil and dangerous.
Shame vs. Guilt
Islamic cultures are shame based. Shame is a painful experience. To avoid shame you have to hide the source of shame. This means you must protect the image. Your entire self esteem and self worth depends on that image. When you are shamed you become violence. Violence is one way we humans deal with shame.
The following is an email sent to us by Drunkia. It shows the relationship that Muslims have with Islam and the grip that this cult has on them. She wrote:
I agree with you totally sir. Muslims are violent, of abuse, and that they are rapists. It is totally true that these stories they call miracles are flukes. Than why the fucking hell am i not in the mental asylum?! Why the hell, me, a young muslim girl who never swears unless really neccesery is bloody fucking swearing now? Shut up your bitchy damn mouth and shut the hell up with you. You were born to maybe an honest mother but born to be a non honest man. Believe me, I totally agree with you that muslims are violent. If I wasn't typing this at the computer screen, you wouldn't have a decent face by now. And my fist would be bloodied and I would be punished. But what worse punishment is there when you'r being a stupid hell bum to my religon. Get your fucking asshole over here and write back. I am not a girl of voilence, but I can-my family can be a family of murder! Rot in hell. Lol. Gonna cry for your mama when your being thrashed by allah. And also, hand over the $50, 000 to me. Look at this. I start with a bissmillah for the day, and I am lucky, If not, then I am unlucky. Also, I believe allah very strongly that I'm ready to prove that anything allah says is true. And please, I'm begging, no-I'm ordering you not to call Allah a "he" or a "she". Peace be so not upon you. From your so not lovely e mailer.
lots of hate, wait!
I'm not going to bother giving my name away to such a disgusting
human. Believe me. I don't have to try. I know where you live. I
know where you sleep, I know your relatives, I know where you work,
I know your friends. And something frets you and comforts me, I know
that you are a sucker.
This person, is most likely not a violent
person. But given the chance she will do what she says she would.
People of all faiths are offended when their religion is insulted,
but only Muslims are capable of completely losing their heads and
becoming vicious murderers. Why? It is because Muslims have lost
their selfhood and Islam has become their only identity. Islam gives
them self worth, a false sense of pride and selfhood. Once Islam is
criticized, they feel their vulnerability and are shamed. What can
you say when people call your prophet a pedophile and you can't deny
it. This caused intense shame and the only way to deal with this
shame is to become violent. The best way to describe their
behavior is to say that they are “possessed.”
The best way to describe their behavior is to say that they are “possessed.”
In order to help them overcome their savagery, Muslims must be “exorcized” from Islam. To do so, Islam must be discredited so it loses it appeal. Shame makes makes them violent but eventually it will set them free. Therefore the answer to their violence is not to respect their faith but to shame them more. Only intense shame can break their shell and set them free.
Narcissism is fed through narcissistic
supplies. Recognition and respect are narcissistic supplies. Feeding
narcissism does not help the narcissist, It rather makes them worse.
They become bullies, more arrogant and more demanding. Narcissists
cannot be helped through appeasement. In the words of Churchill, “An
appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him
last." What the Germans and many European governments are doing
today vis-à-vis Islam is appeasement. They are not aware of the
danger of Islam and the calamity that they are going to face in a
very near future. Ignorance has a price to pay. The price of this
ignorance can be civil war and blood of innumerable people, both
Muslims and non-Muslims in
Our responsibility is to awaken the non-Muslims
and warn them of the danger of Islam. The danger comes from Islam
and not the Middle Eastern people. Unlike Muslims, who discriminate,
violate and abuse the human rights of non-Muslims, the Non-Muslims
have difficulty with discrimination. However, they must understand
that Islam is just a belief and beliefs do not have rights. Humans
have rights, beliefs don’t.
As Drunkia’s email show, Muslims can become
feral dogs if their religion is criticized. Savagery should not be
tolerated. Those Muslims who choose to defend their religion with
savagery should be locked up or kicked out. Dialogue should be
welcomed, but we must show zero tolerance for violence.
Once dialogue begins, Islam will be discredited
and Muslims will be set free. Once their source of pride becomes a
source of shame, they will no longer cling to it but rather will be
embarrassed of it and would want to dissociate themselves from it.
The Western culture, is guilt based. Westerners
do not do wrong because of guilt. The Eastern culture is shame
based. For us Easterners, everything is about image and how others
The opposite of guilt is innocence. If your
ethos is guilt based, you have an inner police that stops you from
doing wrong because doing wrong makes you feel guilty.
If your ethos is shame based, all you care is
to preserve your image. The opposite of shame is honor. You can do
wrong but as long as no one sees it, your image is not tarnished and
you can still be seen as an honorable person. In a shame based
culture, wrong and right have no meaning. It is all about shame and
honor. If the stain of shame is removed, even if it means the
murder of your own daughter, honor is restored. These are two very
different worldviews. Unless we understand them we will not be able
to make sense of Muslims and their minds.
Shame based cultures are primitive. All Eastern cultures are shame based even when they are not Islamic. Japanese culture, for example, is, or it has been, a shame based culture. Our Persian culture is also shame based. Proverbs like “I keep my cheeks rosy with slaps,” are telltales of a shame based culture, where image is more important than facts. This proverb says that I may be starving but my pride does not allow me to let anyone know it so I slap myself to keep my cheek rosy. Because poverty is the source of shame as long as I hide my poverty, I have preserved my honor.
Islam is a fear based philosophy that has taken root in a shame based milieu. This is a very dangerous combination. When you combine fear and shame moral codes, you give birth to the most insidious ethos imaginable. That is Islam. Islam is an illogical doctrine that is based on fear and is defended through honor. This makes Islam more dangerous than Nazism. Muslims are not concerned about the irrationality of Islam or about good or evil. They are mostly concerned about losing face and upholding the image of Islam.
One fact we must all agree on is that brute
force is stronger than civility. If you and I confront each other
and I use violence against you while you try to reason with me, I
will win and you will lose. The reason Muslims have won since the
time of Muhammad is because the non-Muslims were reluctant to resort
to violence while Muslims were always ready to do so. The reason we
live in freedom today is because the Europeans responded to Muslim
barbarity with equal savagery. If not for the crusaders, we probably
would not be free today.
When in the battle of Badr, Nadhr ibn Harith, a
Muhammad ordered his cousin Nadhr to be
decapitated. Musab was telling the truth. Islam rends all bonds
asunder. It is called Moqalib-al qulub. It transforms the
hearts of the believers and makes them ruthless and hard. After
converting to Islam, believers turn against their own people and do
not shy away killing their own loved ones.
This has been the secret of the success of
Islam since its inception. Ordinary people are not militant. They
subscribe to the philosophy of live and let live. This is a
commendable trait in a civilized world. However, where the law of
juggle applies, the most ferocious and the most cunning beast is
always the winner. A pack of hyenas can raid a large herd of
wildebeests or gazelles; kill as many of them as they want and they
are always victorious. The hyenas and other carnivores always win,
because herbivores are not violent. Brute force wins. Good and evil
are human concepts. In nature force is what matters. This is a
principle. Because Muslims are militant, and the rest of mankind is
not; because they are violent and the others are not, Muslims always
Tolerance of intolerance encourages it. Islam
must be stopped. There are two ways to do that. One is by weaning
Muslims from Islam and the other is by responding to their violence
with greater violence. In the humble opinion of this writer the
first option is sanity while the second is war. Needless to say that
the option of inaction is insanity and suicidal.
If we choose the path of sanity, the only way
to help Muslims leave Islam is to discredit it. This means openly
criticizing it, the way we do with Christianity or other religions.
Christianity has not been spared from criticism. There has been
nothing against Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism that could have
been said and it hasn't. Why Islam should be spared from criticism?
If there is any truth to Islam, let its apologists defend it. If it
cannot be defended logically then it is a lie. Why should we bow to
a lie when it is responsible for countless deaths and so much
The best people who can criticize Islam and
discredit it are people like you and me. We know Islam inside out
and it is up to us to speak out. Everyone must become a critic
of Islam. However the ex-Muslims can do what others can't. Our
enemies are militant, determined and proactive. We must also become
militant, determined and proactive.

Our and Their Vulnerabilities
You can’t win a war without knowing your enemy.
In order to win this war, we must know the psychology of Muslims.
Once we know his mind, we know his weaknesses and his
The weakness of Muslims is Islam. They cling to
it for their identity and pride. They want you to respect Islam and
with that feed their narcissistic craving. When you see millions of
Muslims go berserk over a few cartoons, you know that you have
touched a very sensitive cord.
This knowledge is crucial to win this war. When
in war, you attack your enemy in his weakest spot. That is why
attacking the character of Muhammad and the credibility of the Quran
is essential to our struggle against Islamic terrorism. To win this
war we must wean Muslims from it and to do that we must discredit
it. Islam’s grip on Muslims is not logical but psychological. We can
win this war only if we wage it psychologically. How to do that? By
telling the truth! Once everyone stops kowtowing to Muslims and
calls them Mohammedans and pedophile worshippers, the battle is
already won. It amazes me that some non-Muslims who pretend to be
fighting against Islamic terrorism are offended by these terms and
think calling Muslims with such derogatory terms are gratuitous and
unnecessary. Far from being unnecessary it is imperative. It is the
very strategy of our war against them. These are not insults but
facts. These facts, once spread worldwide and echoed by everyone,
will crush the Muslim's faith in Islam and will help them cut their
umbilical cord from it.
Muslims are not afraid of fighting. They are
not afraid of killing or dying. They are afraid of ridicule. That is
their weak spot. It is right on their weak spot that we must
concentrate our attacks.
Only a fool would deny that we are in a war.
Muslims have resumed their iihad against humanity. Each side has its
weakness. The weakness of non-Muslims, particularly the Westerners,
is their guilt. Muslims abuse the non-Muslims in their countries and
violate their every human right, but when they come to the West they
demand, not just equal, but preferential treatment. Not only they do
not abide by our rules, they make us abide by theirs. Most of the
meet served in fast food restaurants, and schools in
our weakness and our legal system and they take full advantage of
that to strengthen their position. Do we know their weakness? .
They know our weakness and our legal system and they take full advantage of that to strengthen their position. Do we know their weakness? .
The vulnerability of Muslims is shame. Having
lost their identity, Muslims seek their selfhood and pride in their
religion. Criticizing Islam for Muslims is the most devastating
experience. For them, who literally worship Muhammad more than God,
hearing him questioned and ridiculed is traumatic.
Paradoxically, this is also their salvation.
The more Islam is criticized, the less sensitive Muslims become and
gradually they stop clinging to it as their source of pride.
Eventually Islam will become their source of shame. It’s then that
the great exodus from Islam will begin. It can happen
It can happen overnight.
Muslims are afraid of dialogue. When they talk
about “dialogue between civilizations” they actually mean monologue.
They want you to listen to their story, but they are not willing to
listen to yours, much less to tolerate your probing questions. They
demonstrated their intolerance for dialogue when the Pope quoted a
Byzantine emperor saying Islam is violent. They avoid situations
where Islam can be seriously examined. This is their weakness.
The Westerners cannot overcome their weakness. They can’t bring themselves to discriminate against Muslims. Their sense of guilt is too strong and too debilitating. This gives Muslims an edge. The only way for the West to overcome this handicap is to take advantage of the weakness of Muslims and this means criticizing of Islam and ridiculing its pedophile, rapist founder.
