Episode 6: War & Support Our Troops
“History makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.” De Lacy O’Leary “Islam at the cross road” P 8
War in Arabic is Harb and Holy War in Arabic is Harb Al Muqaddasa – The words HOLY WAR next to each other or HARB AL MUQADDASA in Arabic is nowhere to be found in the Quran or in the words of Mohamed.
Jihad means to struggle. Jihad appears 41 times in the Quran and frequently in the idiomatic expression “striving in the way of God”.
The accusation that Islam was initially spread by the sword is the basis for many more false accusations. The numbers of deaths due to Jihad are being bandied around in order to substantiate these accusations and evidently, history is being rewritten.
I uncover the facts and reach some startling conclusions based on the evidence presented.
