Audio, re Who speaks for Islam? That's the real battle going on among Muslims in the world today. Terrorism is really an attempt to win against MUSLIMS who are (technically) apostate.
For just as in Christianity, the majority in Islam is apostate. Difference is, the 'true' Koran is all about violence. Your average Muslim, is unaware of that. For Islam got influenced by Christianity. So, we humans commonly associate 'holy' with 'loving'.
But to be a good Muslim, you must be violent; love, isn't in Islam (i.e. you are never commanded to love 'Allah'). Just compare a Bible search on 'love', with this one at quran.com: quran.com/search?q=love
So the battle is joined: Islamic fundamentalism, is the heart of the battle and reason for the rise of Bin Laden and Islamic terrorism. To go back to, the good old days.
This is Islam101: Bible said early on: the sons of Ishmael versus the sons of God. So Islam is irrelevant; but rather the ARABS, starting with the 'royal' sons of Abraham line, fighting with each other and with the sons of Isaac, as God foretold, Genesis 16:12:
12 "He will be a wild donkey of a man, His hand will be against everyone, And everyone's hand will be against him; And he will live to the east of all his brothers."
Islam is just a foil. Satan uses it to keep the sons fighting. And now Church is in the mix, so Satan gets more bang for the buck, so that all belief in the Book looks bad, no matter whether Christian, Jewish, or now.. Muslim.
So the Koran is a foil, too. However, by now it has morphed into a 'religion' with many sects; primary among which is the 'catholic' flavor, the Sunnis, headed now by Saudi Arabia. Versus, the protestant-type flavor, militant (fundamental) Islam, headed by Iran. Saudi Arabia thus appears moderate, in order to win Western support and fool the West, angling the meanwhile by surreptitiously funding terrorism more than Iran can do (for Saudi Arabia is richer, being the home of the hajj). And your average Western politician and diplomat, is well aware of that.
Your average Muslim, is not; stuck between, the Muslim has almost no knowledge of the Koran really, and generally mistakes Islam as some religion of peace. But is anti-semitic in the soul, so is thus easily fooled.
If however one reads the Koran, one finds out it's really just a terrorism manifesto, in disguise. So it's in the best interest of the Islamic states, to mask this fact. For they've used the 'soft' Islam face for so long, their own people have bought into it.
So this audio (with pictures slapped on, you don't have to watch the screen) helps sort out the tangled political mess, so you can see the problem better.
Key to doing this? TALK TO GOD. For only a Christian using 1John1:9 can do anything about this. PRAYER is the only thing that works. The world isn't asking for God's help, so no matter where they are on the political map, they are Satan fodder.
And, read the Koran, for God uses prepared people as witness. Which really means, not rudely knocking on someone's door offering to 'share'; but rather, preparing as Christ did, Matt 4:4; then people will be sent BY God TO you. That way, THEY know GOD sent them. And so will you.
Test that claim. LEARN and then watch what GOD does to bring THEM to you!
Koran is really in two parts: pre-Medina suras, and post-Medina suras. The later ones (post-Medina) are much more violent, and per Muslim tafseer (exegesis), CANCEL ("abrogate") the earlier Suras. Really, it's a dialectic: be nice when you have no power; once you have power, be nasty. Today's 'peaceful' Islam is playing on Mohammed's policy when he didn't have power, pre-Medina. The Iranian position is based on the fact that the nasty verses post-Medina when Mohammed did have power, abrogate the nice verses. Iran is more true to Mohammed, but both are out to kill all the Jews, kill the West, and restore the Caliphate.
Iran wants to be the head of that Caliphate; so does Saudi Arabia. So now you know events happening now, are really masterminded by Saudi Arabia and Iran playing through proxies (i.e., the Palestinians).. to fight over who speaks for Islam. For Satan, is using both countries as his proxies.
Important sites to visit, for Koran study:
quran.com , to look up specific verses in the Koran or read whole sections.
Open Burhan: openburhan.net , same purpose, but has more variations in translation and a downloadable Koran.
