Traditional Islam

"Traditional Islam views the world as belonging in one of two houses: The house of Islam, and the house of war."

"For most of the fourteen hundred years of Islamic history, the most common interpretation of Jihad is armed struggle for the advancement or defense of Muslim power."

"The presumption is that Jihad will continue (Interrupted only by truces) until either the entire world adopts Islam or is subjected to Muslim rule." (Bernard Lewis, Crisis of Islam C2003)

Islam has these and other mechanisms that have been in place for many centuries that are designed to expand its control and discriminate against all other ways of life.

This is not an ‘extreme’ view of Islam. Many of the so-called ‘extremists’ that we hear about are those who believe in traditional Islam. This is Islam as it has been commonly accepted throughout the Middle East for centuries.

Traditional Islam is NOT peaceful.
