There probably are not a lot of Americans that hate fellow citizens because of their religion. Most of us are brought up to respect differences. We have family members and friends that don’t believe as we do and we even marry people with different faiths and it doesn’t cause a problem. Of course there are some folks that don’t tolerate others beliefs but there always will be.

But, I do fear Islam.

About two years ago I started my third novel, which is about a young girl who runs away from home. Not a new concept but this girl is from a wealthy family and has had all the advantages but her parents are worse than negligent. The girl runs to an art colony so she can paint and soon finds she doesn’t really fit in. On her way home a nice truck driver gives her a lift but before they can go far, the truck is high- jacked along with the trucker and the girl. The high-jackers are terrorists.

Thus began my study of Islam. I was amazed at what I learned. For instance this is mind- boggling: Popular thought is that the Koran is the source of all the teaching of Islam. Not so! The sacred texts, teachings for Islam are derived from three sources, The Trilogy. Only 14% are derived from the Koran. 60% are from the Hadith and 26% are from the Sira. The Trilogy is the final word on all things Islam.

The Hadith is a collection of stories and traditions concerning Muhammad and the Sira is Mohammed’s biography. AND 64% of the Koran deals with the unbelievers. Kafir.

Not being Muslim is serious stuff in some countries. Speaking against Islam is punishable by death. Pakistani Sherry Rehman offered a bill to parliament calling for changes in the blasphemy law that would remove the death penalty. This resulted in a fatwa and fanatics are after her. In this case Ms. Rehman did not denounce her religion she simply wanted to remove the death penalty for those that might say anything that might be considered blasphemous.

Ms Rehman has been a campaigner for human rights for many years and was one of the founders for the Pakistan's Human Rights Commission. About the blasphemy law she said, "It creates a clear incentive to many to misuse the law to settle personal scores and grab property."

One poor man was accused of blasphemy for throwing a business card in the trash that had a symbol of Islam on it.

Perhaps the most insightful thing I learned about Islam is you cannot be a true believer if you are not actively working at spreading Islam. Spreading the religion is mandatory for all true Muslims. To fail in this duty is serious.

There are two ways to spread Islam. It can be done by stealth or violence. We all see the violence on the news and the signs that are waived claiming Islam will conquer the world. It’s the stealth we don’t see. The steady creep into our political structures, our businesses our schools, our armed forces.

It comes packaged with a smile, a friendly demeanor and lies. Yes, they even have word they use for lying in defense of their religion. Taqiyya, which means "religious deception."

It’s OK to pretend you are building a mosque at ground zero as community outreach if the true purpose is to spread Islam. It’s OK to participate in our armed services as long as the goal is to spread Islam and later when the opportunity arises, kill a bunch of soldiers.

It’s OK to become a member of congress and talk about peaceful coexistence if you can just get Sharia law into the fabric of our society. Once Sharia law is established Muslims can stop pretending that Islam is a peaceful religion. Islam is much, much more than a religion. It is an ideology that encompasses all facets of life, religion, politics, finances, law and family life.

The creep is everywhere. In congress, in the White House, in our schools and it just keeps building.

Yes, I fear Islam, because I can see what has happened to Europe and it is irrevocable.

I found this in my research so I will quote:

“What is the true nature of Islam? There are two distinct answers to this question from the media and leaders. The popular message is that Islam is one of the great world religions, a peaceful religion, a foundation of world civilization, its Golden Age was the highpoint of history, and it preserved Western thought while we were in the Dark Ages. The alternative message is that Islam is a brutal, backward, woman abusing, violent, intellectually narrow ideology that is out to annihilate civilization.”

Up and beautiful on this one. This is great information presented in a very understandable manner. I learned a great deal from reading this hub, and I too fear Islam. We have no idea how deeply they may have penetrated our government at this time. I'm sure some have found their way into powerful positions within the ranks. Very scary situation in my mind.

You are right to fear Islam. Your fear is based on knowledge which is something far too many people are not interested in obtaining. Ignorance is definitely not bliss.

One need to only look at Europe to follow the insidious march of Islam there as Muslims out-breed their European hosts...

With the declining birth rates of native Europeans and the huge increase in Muslim births there, we have seen Spain's Muslim population jump from 100,000 in 1990 to over 1 million in 2008, with most concentrated in the largest cities that refuse to integrate within the general population...

This is typical of Britain, France, Germany, and Denmark also...Many are welfare dependent, having been schooled on how to work the system...

Thank you for this well-researched and interesting Hub on a subject largely ignored by the media...Voted up and useful...Larry

Thank you so much for reading my hub. I am greatly concerned about the spread of Islam, however my next hub on this subject will probably be about those peaceful reformers of Islam. One such man, an editor, spent l7 years in jail because he has devoted his blog to reforming the radical Islam. So, there is always hope and many Muslims would like to run from the religion but they are afraid.

This is scary on a horrific scale. The more I learn about this, and I learned a few things here, the more convinced I am that no country is safe. I'm sure you have taken some heat for this article. I commend your courage.

Thank you poetvix. One of my sons says I will be bludgeoned to death some day, because I write two more blogs all about Islam, and they are very opionated and not real tolerant. www.jihad-is-no-joke.

This website is very scary.If I get too explicit on Hub Pages, it gets censored, so I let it all hang out on my own site.
