Islam’s Violent Origins: Muhammed

Zach Dunn

During the first decade of the founding of Islam, Muhammed preached his new concept of a singular god, Allah to his fellow tribesmen in Mecca. During this roughly 10 year period of Islam’s beginning, it was semi-peaceful. But unlike Christianity which had both begun and spread through peaceful means, Muhammed had a very hard time spreading this new “faith” to his fellow Meccans. 

After facing opposition to his new teaching almost a decade after he began to write the Quran, Muhammed and his followers were forced to flee Mecca and eventually settled in Medina. It was there that Mohammed first started to put together a militia of his followers.  After settling a feud between two different houses, many in Medina and those who had followed him pledged their loyalty to Muhammed. They stated their willingness to fight his enemies and conquer lands in the name of Allah.

Barely 15 years after Islam’s founding, the followers of Muhammed were sharpening their swords and readying their spears.    

Muhammed started slow, that is he and his followers started raiding caravans like common criminals. Most of their raids were carried out on foot by those who had followed him from Mecca some years before. The first caravan they took, they approached it dressed as humble travelers and leapt upon the guards. 

What followed next over the course of several years, beginning with the Battle of Badr, was local Muslim conquests of small towns until they eventually were powerful enough to conquer Mecca and solidify Muslim dominance in the region.  

These early Muslim conquests went on to set the pace of what has become one of the most Militant, and violent ideologies ever to crawl the face of the earth. 

Opposite to Christ’s “love one another” and, “Do Good to your enemies”; Mohamed wrote in Q8:60 “to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.”

Also penned by Muhammed is, Q9:29 which instructs the followers of Islam to: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

Muhammed and his first followers practiced what they preached.

The Division That Led to Blood

This event only galvanized both sides. As blood flowed in Kansas, and the US Congress became increasingly more and more divided, people started to fear for the future of the US. Things came to a head in 1859, when a single spark lit the fuse.

Seizing The Little Moments

I know I’ve been guilty of not actively teaching my children the Word of God, making it part of our everyday life. It’s easy to be distracted by all the things we need to do and therefore neglect to take time to teach our children. We may even justify not taking the time, by telling ourselves they are learning about God at church.

Sighting Your Rifle In

The rifle can be an accurate tool, depending on the weapon itself. But a rifle will never reach it’s true potential unless the sights or the optic with which you aim it are tuned and sighted in properly.

Choosing the Right Home Defensive Rifle For You

The rifle will always beat the handgun in accuracy, both close ranged and longer distance. It is far easier to aim and use a rifle when your adrenaline is pumping, and you are far more likely to miss with a handgun. Longer sight radius and superior grip give the rifle the edge here in a defensive situation.

When Eating Out Isn’t in the Budget

Recently, I wanted to make dinner special for my kids but taking our family of 6 out to our favorite restaurant wasn’t in the budget. Being a resourceful mom and feeling adventurous (that might have been due to the numerous cups of coffee I had drank throughout the day), I decided I’d make one of my family’s favorite fast food meals at home¬¬—Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets! Can I get an amen!?!

Old War Horses

There is something about old military rifles that has always caught my eye. Especially American service rifles from the world wars. Many other nations for sure had serviceable arms, the British with their remarkable Lee-Enfield, and the Germans have their Mauser. I’ve always hated French guns, they are surely the ugliest rifles known to mankind. I would, however, gladly use a Lebel or a Berthier for a boat anchor.

ComBloc AKs or Bust

Often touted, errantly, as an inaccurate blunderbuss, it is also known as the “inaccurate blunderbuss” that will always function. Hundreds of thousands of imported AKs have led to this credibility. But an AK is not a blunderbuss, nor is it inaccurate.

Mr. Mueller’s Witch Hunt

Does true justice remain in America? While Hilary Clinton’s Uranium One deal was sloppily and briskly swept under the proverbial rug, the Justice Department at the urging of its Deep State overlords and the Left blindly stumbled into the Mueller Investigation.

The Arming of Patriot America

The immense number of AR-15s that have been produced and purchased, is utterly amazing to behold.  That is if you behold the scale of production and purchase honestly.  And what I mean by that, is that you must ignore absolutely everything you hear from the Mainstream Media.  They would love to tell you that 3-5 million AR-15s are in civilian hands and maybe 10 million terrifying, “ASSAULT WEAPONS”, exist in America.
