Turkish Poet: “Islam Is Worse Than Nazism”
Turkish author and poet Serkan Engin is a brave and courageous man for speaking the truth about Islam in a country that is over 99% Muslim. Although he left Islam years ago, he remains an atheist today. Please pray that he comes to know Christ as his Savior. Given the state of the Muslim world, even in “moderate” Turkey, he may not have much time left …
Qur’an Sura 33:57, 61, “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained … Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”
Hadith, Bukhari 9.84.57, “Muhammad said, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”
By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Note from Robert Spencer: When Serkan Engin sent me this piece and asked me to publish it, I asked him if this could endanger him in Turkey. He responded, ‘I am ready to die.’ I certainly hope that he encounters no difficulty as a result of making these public statements; what happens to him now will be a test of the health of the freedom of speech and Kemalist secularism in rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey. It is certainly not possible to say such things in the U.S. today without charges of ‘racism’ and ‘bigotry,’ without any discussion of whether there are Islamic texts and teachings that justify violence and hatred: the question cannot even be asked.
It should also be noted that I do not agree with Serkan Engin’s call for Islam to be outlawed. In the U.S., at least (to say nothing of Turkey or elsewhere), we do not outlaw ideas, and do not employ Thought Police. The criminalizing of thought is a hallmark of the totalitarian state. Even at the height of the Cold War, Communism was not outlawed. Once a people grants to the government the power to declare certain ideas illegal, that power can be turned against good ideas, to the detriment of the people. What needs to be done in response to jihad violence and Islamic supremacism today is an aggressive prosecution of any and all actions dedicated to subverting the republic; that is, however, not being done.
In any case, I may not agree with everything Serkan Engin says, but I will defend to the death his right to speak his mind. That is the fundamental principle of the freedom of speech, and the indispensable foundation of any free society. It is rapidly being lost.
Why Islam is Worse Than Nazism
by Serkan Engin
I am an atheist author and poet, who had lived as a Sunni Muslim for 23 years from birth, and I am still living in a Muslim country, Turkey. Also, my parents and all of my relatives are still Muslim. So, my critics about Islam can be easily consider this an inside view.
I know that the title of this essay seems assertive, but I will explain the rightness of this title step-by-step in this essay.
First of all, you have to learn about Islam that if you are an ‘outsider’, a non-Muslim, for example, a Christian, an atheist, a Buddhist, a Jew or whatever else, all Muslims have the ‘right’ of killing and raping you, grabbing all your properties, your country, land, money and anything else. They take this ‘right’ from the book of their belief, the Quran. In other words, they take this ‘right’ from their belief’s core, the theology of Islam.
Here are some examples of this in verses from Quran.
This verse of Quran is about ‘all non-Muslims’, all ‘heretics’! — Christians, Buddhists, atheists, Jews, etc. — describing them …” Read more.
