Islam is primarily a political ideology

This is Part 4  of a series on Statistical Islam by Bill Warner:

Religious Islam is defined as doctrine concerned with going to Paradise and avoiding Hell by following the Koran and the Sunna. The part of Islam that deals with the “outsider”, the Kafir, is defined as political Islam. Since so much of the Trilogy is about the Kafir, the statistical conclusion is that Islam is primarily a political system, not a religious system.

Mohammed’s success depended on politics, not religion. The Sira, Mohammed’s biography, gives a highly detailed accounting of his rise to power. He preached the religion of Islam for 13 years in Mecca and garnered 150 followers. He was forced to move to Medina and became a politician and warrior. During the last 9 years of his life, he was involved in an event of violence every 6 weeks. When he died every Arab was a Muslim. Mohammed succeeded through politics, not religion.

An estimate can be made that there were 100,000 Muslims when Mohammed died. Using this information allows a graph to be drawn:

There are two distinct growth processes-religion and politics. Teaching and religion grew at a rate of about 12 new Muslims per year. Politics and jihad grew at a rate of 10,000 new Muslims per year, an enormous increase. This is a process yield improvement of over 800%. Politics was almost a thousand times more effective than religion.

If Mohammed had continued with preaching religion we can extrapolate that there would have only been 265 Muslims when he died, instead of the 100,000 that resulted from his politics and jihad. This gives us an estimate of 265 conversions due to religion and 99,735 conversions to due the political jihad process. We can calculate the relative contributions of religion and politics in growth. Islam’s success was 0.3% religion and 99.7% politics at the time of Mohammed’s death, 632 AD.

This political importance is reflected in the text of the Sira. There are many more pages devoted to a year of jihad than there are devoted to preaching Islam. It is instructive to see the amount of the Sira text devoted to these stages of development .

The Sira devotes about 5 times as many words to politics than religion on a yearly basis. It gives politics 5 times the coverage because it is that much more important.

Islam’s political nature is also found in the Hadith that devotes 37% of its text to the Kafir.

There would be no Islam today, if it were only a religion. Statistics show that Islamic politics is what brought Islam success, not religion. To say that Islam is the religion of peace misses the point, since the religion is not the core of Islam’s power. It is politics that count, not religion.

The statistical conclusion: Islam is primarily a political ideology.




No Islamic Golden Rule

Dr. Bill Warner, founder of the Center for the Study of Political Islam joins Michael Coren on Sun TV’s The Arena to discuss the non-religious aspects of Islam and the treatment of non-Muslims.


Confronting the Teachings of Islam

By John Steinreich

Islam is a religio-political doctrine, thus the policies of the State are only half of the intellectual arsenal needed to address its cold war with the West. For our civil society to survive the advance of Islam, we must confront it head on to block its efforts to subjugate all forms of government to Shariah law and to destroy all other forms of faith. We must use both political and religious strategies to successfully defeat Islamic supremacism.
In the domain of politics, there exists an unfortunate failure of imagination by our government elite to confront Islam ideologically. There are a few brave Western politicians who have acknowledged the fundamental threat posed by political Islam, but the large body of our elected officials has, to its discredit, refused to accept the fact that Islam’s codified doctrines promote an incessant march toward world hegemony.
In a similar manner, it is tragic that the Christian Church has neither fully recognized nor embraced its role as the spiritual defender of Western Civilization. In many ways the Church has actually aided and abetted our enemies through its unwillingness to stand up for its own values in the name of the dubiously noble ideals of diversity, tolerance, and inter-faith dialogue. Now is the time for the Christian Church to stop its dance with the devil, and she must don her spiritual armor to prepare for a confrontation of ideas with Islam.
If not thwarted, Islam will do to the West what many other tyrannical ideologies have attempted and at times succeeded in doing: Crush all other systems of belief and dominate the culture at large. By its own admission, Islam wishes to conquer the world, at least in part, through the destruction of all other belief systems:
            Qur’an 8:39 “And fight with them (ie–the unbelievers) until there is no                                        more persecution and religion should be only for Allah.”
This passage should serve as a warning to all of us. The Qur’an, which Islam regards as the perfect, immutable words of Allah, literally teaches Muslims to fight unbelievers indefinitely until their religion reigns supreme. If the Church has any true conviction that its heritage is worth protecting, it must pick up its intellectual and spiritual arms and stand in the gap like the Mighty Men of David. The Church must embrace the fact that Western Civilization was built on the Judeo-Christian ethic, and that Islam is dedicated to destroying that ethic. If the Church truly believes that God did indeed endow all people with the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, she will defend Western Civilization against Islam’s anti-freedom manifesto…

Islam versus Islamism — a distinction without a difference?

by The Anti-Jihadist

When reading anything regarding Islam and Islamic terrorism — something more and more common nowadays — it doesn’t take long to find references to ‘Islamism’, ‘Islamists’, and ‘radical Islam’, especially in the politically conservative side of the blogosphere. Most often, these words are mentioned when observers and pundits speculate as to the motives of the Muslim men (and sometimes women) who carry out, or attempt to carry out, their various terrorist atrocities. This sort of thinking represents a vast improvement over the usual politically correct narrative, namely that (Islamic) terrorism is caused by some combination of poverty, unemployment, so-called ‘Islamophobia’, US foreign policy, and the like. However, even if we accept the ‘Islamism’ explanation for Islamic terrorism, we are still short of a full and complete understanding of the motives of those who carry out this evil…

…Saudi Arabia, a nation long noted for its strict adherence to Islamic law, a country which proudly proclaims the Quran as its constitution, is not widely considered as an ‘Islamist’ state. One might ask, are there any appreciable political or religious differences between Saudi Arabia and Sudan? Both are totalitarian states, with Shariah enshrined as the law of the land in both countries. Both feature tyrannical, non-elected governments. Both employ ruthless religious and lifestyle police apparatuses with sweeping and arbitrary powers of arrest, detention, torture and imprisonment. Both have long-standing, atrocious human rights records. Yet one is ‘Islamist’, and not the other. But Saudi Arabia, a nominal US ally, was home of most of the 9-11 terror team, a team which struck at the very heart of the ‘Great Satan’ in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania to commit acts of mass murder, a ‘victory’ hailed by many Muslims and ‘Islamists’ alike. Isn’t this precisely the sort of violent, aggressive act the very raison d’être of ‘Islamism…

…The Quran itself, the very heart of Islamic ideology, is a document that devotes much of its length to the treatment of Muslims and particularly non Muslims. The Quran says that Muslims are fated to rule the world, and everyone in it. While Jesus of Christianity says, “My Kingdom is not of this world,” Muslims are explicitly commanded to do otherwise, to remake the world into an Islamic kingdom and all religion is for Allah (Quran 8:39). In other words, the Quran is an inherently political document. Consequently, there is no separation between mosque and state in core Islamic texts. In traditional Islam, dating back to the time of its prophet, the spiritual and the political are one.

Drawing distinctions between Islam and its corresponding ‘-ism’ is a false dichotomy. There is no political Islam, no ‘Islamism’, no ‘Islamists’ — there are only Islam and Muslims. The so-called ‘radical’, ‘fundamentalist’ or ‘militant’ Muslims, the ‘Islamists’, and indeed the terrorists, are the ones faithfully practicing the dictum of Islam, exactly as Islam’s founder intended.
