Persians Against Hate

The Persian renaissance lies in the spirit of Iranians themselves. This spirit alone can overcome the mullahs who rule as tyrants. More than 1400 years of Islamic rule has not only failed to advance the security and well-being of the people, it has ensnared the nation in a stifling theocracy in which the rights of the governed are routinely violated for the benefit of the governing.

I have been warning about the threat of Islam for as long as I know. We have a saying in Persian that says “the way you take your first step points your path for the rest of your journey.” To elucidate this, please allow me to elaborate and give a brief account of Islam.

Islam’s very first step was that of violence aimed at decimation of any people that stood in its path of conquest. It all started with Muhammad, when his own Quraysh tribe chased him out of his hometown of Mecca. He was a troublemaker who earned the “crazed poet” epithet. He escaped from Mecca and settled in Medina, where a large tolerant Jewish community lived. There he found enough inner peace and began his campaign to gather a group of believers with the promise of booty in this world as well as eternal pleasures of a sensual paradise in the next life.

The rest is history. One of the very first things he did was to turn on the Jews of Medina – an easy and convenient target to kill, loot and enslave. Being amply rewarded for this thuggery, his followers expanded their range. To this day, the goal is the same. Destroy any and all people who refuse to surrender to this creed of savagery and slavery.

Unfortunately, people of the world consider Iran a Muslim country, even though most Persians consider Islam an invader and not a religion. We, the Iranian people, have experienced Islam firsthand and up close from the inside. We have studied the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sunna. We have seen Islam in action where it wields sway. Some of us even tried desperately to cling to this security blanket that was wrapped around us from birth. Yet the more we studied and the more we experienced Islam, the more our efforts to remain in the fold became untenable.

Most of us broke away from Islamic slavery and found it to be our solemn duty to expose this fraud of a religion, help other Muslims to free themselves from it, and warn good-hearted and gullible non-Muslims against falling prey to it. Although, for me, I personally never succumbed to this barbaric cult.

The fact is that being a Muslim is a clear admission of wrongdoing, the extent of which depends on the degree of a person’s Muslim-ness. If he is only a Muslim who does not practice Islam, then he is, at the very least, guilty of hypocrisy. If he is somewhat of a Muslim by tithing, from time to time, following the ranting of the local mullah or imam, and swallowing whole the pronouncements of the high divines, then he is guilty of significantly contributing to the evildoing of Islam.

Lastly, there are those Muslims who simply lack the courage to leave Islam and exercise their gift of humanity. They are the pathetic crowd guilty of remaining in the fold of tyranny and withholding support from the forces of liberty and human dignity. Also, to use an old cliché, if a person is not part of the solution, he is part of the problem. Islam is indeed a huge problem.

Some Muslims have objected to my taking Islam to task and not addressing the atrocities of others, both in the past and in the present. I do not see myself as an ombudsman for mankind, commissioned either by God or self-appointed. I am not egoistical enough to see myself as a universal arbiter of all wrongdoing. I, however, unreservedly condemn all genocide, religiously-based or otherwise, and all wrongs visited upon any individual or people irrespective of time, place and any other consideration. Thus many Iranians have made a proclamation to abandon Islam altogether. Fourteen hundred years of Islamic barbarity is too long.

Proclamation to Abandon Islam

We, the people of Iran and the world, regardless of our origins and beliefs, have come to the realization that it is not possible for a person to be a Muslim and live by the standards of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We hold Islam in violation of the Declaration, by invading other lands, enslaving people, destroying their heritage and their way of life. We find Islam guilty of pursuing a multi-pronged attack, even to this day, on much of what is sacred to all civilized people.

We consider Islam responsible for 1400 years of atrocities committed against the Iranian people and much of the Islamic world. We believe that Islam is the root of our problem; therefore, it must be abandoned.

Islam has not been hijacked by terrorists. The terrorists are the rue Muslims.

Muhammad asserted:

“I have been made victorious with terror” [Bukhari: 4.52.220].

He raided, massacred, looted and raped innocent people. Islam promotes hate, violence, misogyny, discrimination, intolerance, child abuse and murder.

For the love of humanity, for the peace of the world and for the future of our children, we denounce Islam. We urge Muslims to leave this faith of hate and join the rest of mankind in amity. We are one people; let not prophets of hate like Hitler, Marx and Muhammad divide us with their big lies. We invite you to share this proclamation and promote it. Peace cannot be attained unless hate is eliminated. Islam, like all ideologies of hate, is the biggest impediment to peace.
