ISLAMOPHOBE TESTIMONY: Brett Gasper – I Already knew about the dangers of Islam but 911 caused me to commit my life to Counter-Jihad

The following testimony was sent in by Brett Gasper. I asked him to write up a testimony and share it after he made the following comment on Eric Allen Bell’s FB page.

Eric Allen Bell, They say “ignorance is bliss” – but I am so happy that you actually did research at Murfreesbboro – reaching your opinions through education.

I have studied tafsir for about a decade, have the Qur’an basically memorized and speak Arabic.

I try to tell people that Islam is not just a religion – but an entire societal system (legal, eugenic, political and martial) where all human activity is rated on a scale of 1-5 (wajb-haram)

I had read Mien Kampf (My Jihad) that was dedicated to the founder of the Nazi Party, Max Erwin Von Scheubner-Richter, a key chronicler of the Armenian Genocide.

How does one tell the world that Islam and Shari’a is even a more insideous evil than Hitler was?

That is really the task isn’t it?

Here is the testimony Brett sent in.

“Starting with the Hostage Crisis of 1979, My family took in an exchange student, from Iran, who had his assets frozen, and he was left stranded in the US.

I was the youngest – so Ali shared my room with me and we grew to be brothers. I taught him English and he taught me Farsi. He was very social and had many friends – who talked about many things and the conversations would eventually turn to the revolution and the Islamists.

Most Iranian students had grown up under the influence of the secular Shah and despised the Islamists – but I never knew why… they seemed almost afraid to talk about it.

In early 1983, I enlisted into the Marines during the Lebanese Civil War, and Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. To my suprise, I could understand everything that the Afghan Mujahedin were saying… Dari and Pashtun are very similar to Farsi. It was then that I started to have an understanding of Jihad. That decapitations and amputations were accepted standards of execution – but all other standards were only limited to the imagination and it took quite a few years to put that all behind me.

One day, it was in the morning, and I was working at Glenville State College; I noticed that there was not a cloud in the sky… except the condensation trail of a commercial jet. I remember pointing at it and saying “You done messed up my perfect sky” It was then that I noticed the jet trail going west, doing a big U-turn and continuing east. I thought that was very strange and don’t recall ever seeing a jet do that before. I had no Idea, at the time, that it was American Airlines Flight 77.

When I heard the news, I knew that Islam was all over it. All of the talk in the press was “Why do they hate US?” and George Bush calling it a “religion of Peace”… I wondered if they were talking about the same Islam that I knew.

I decided to answer that myself – so I went online and requested a free Qur’an, translated by Abd’ullah Yousef Ali. As I read, I noticed that the Qur’an was just snippets out of context and made no sense.

So I read Hadith from Bukhari; in Book One, Aisha (Muhammad’s 6 year old wife that he married when he was 50) narrates the first revelation in the cave of Mount Hira outside Mecca where Gabriel says “Recite in the name of your Lord” By chance, I remembered reading that in Chapter 96.

The  Qur’an is not in chronological order: Chapter 96 is the first chapter and Chapter 9 is the last chapter (Abd’ullah ibn Abbas, Richard Bell)

In Qur’an verse 2:106, the form “NSKh” (transliterated nasikh) appears (originally without tashkeel) and it lays out the doctrine of “nasikh w’al mansukh” or the abrogated and the abrogator.

Of the Qur’an’s 114 Chapters, there are 6,666 verses 124 of those verses reflect peace and tolerance. However, if you follow the chronology, all of those were before October, 622 AD (Muhammad’s move to Medina) and 118 were substituted with the Verse of the Sword. (Qur’an 9:5) the remainder were similarly abrogated.

To accurately read the Qur’an – you must engage in Qur’anic exegesis or “tafsir” Richard Bell is an excellant source for tafsir because he cites Hadith rather than aHadith – which Muslims can either cite or disrepute at their convenience. Tanwir al Miqbas min Tafsir Ibn Abbas is another great source – though English translations put the chapters in numeric order.

In my studies of Islam and history, I have come to realize that Islam is a complete societal system (legal, eugenic, political and martial) where all human activity is rated on a scale of 1-5 (wajb-haram)

I cannot explain to you in this forum how dangerous Islam is to the world and particularly the United States and the West – you would never believe me. You have to find out for yourself and learn to understand this.

I will be happy to help anyone learn more and will dedicate my life to it.”

ISLAMOPHOBE TESTIMONY: Damon Whitsell’s Short Testimony

I wrote the following short testimony about a year and a half ago for the sidebar of my site TheReligionOfConquest.info. I will soon write and post a longer testimony detailing some of the last 1 1/2 years and a 3-5 minute video testimony. I guess the titles of those testimonies will be “How Terry Jones’s Burn A Koran Day Changed My Life”,, because it truly did.
———————————————

In 98 I was working evening shift and seen a late night commercial offering a free Koran. Because I have an interest in all religions, especially Christian Cults, I ordered it and read it even though it was a very difficult read. I noticed peaceful verses and violent verses but did not know what to make of it all. Then after 911 I read the Koran again and this time I discovered a verse that talked about later verses superseding earlier verses. But I did not know which where early and later verses. Even after this and 911 I still believed that Islam was not a big concern for me as the only ones blowing things up where “terrorist” and not all Muslims where terrorist, right? Then came 9/09/10, it was the day that changed my life and mission. Because I have Mormons, Oneness Pentecostals, Word of Faithers and Bible Missionaries in my family, I had devoted the last 10 years to Christian Cult Apologetics, and then came along Pastor Terry Jones, needless to say him and his Burn a Koran day changed my life. Here is why.

On 9/9/10 I visited a friends political blog and seen a post about the Burn a Koran Day. I’m not really sure why but I thought, this jerk could to set the whole world ablaze if he burns them Korans. I visited Jones site and also went to his facebook page and a facebook page that was against the Koran burning. What I seen shocked me. It went like this,,,”we will kill you all if you burn our Koran”,, and non Muslims responded by saying,,, “not if we kill you all first”.

The non-muslims where posting videos of Muslims burning people alive, beheading people, stoning people, hanging people, beating women,,etc. I had seen a couple of these videos but had no idea there where so many. And of course on 9/11 they was showing all the tributes on TV which included the jumpers from the towers, I was really overwhelmed but still spent a total of five days on those facebook pages. One day as soon as I awoke, it dawned on me that I never seen a single Muslim denounce those atrocious videos without also half heartedly justifying them. And many Muslims outright condoned the terrible acts. That day I noticed that far to many of the ones who condoned such acts where living in the west. I knew right then that there are not as many “moderate Muslims” as myself and most people thought. I decided that day that I would be changing the focus of my ministry and dedicating my life to studying Islam and telling others about it’s dangers. I started a blog on Islam and I plan on doing counter-jihad work until I die.
