"The six-month interim deal signed in Geneva on Nov.24, 2013, will likely double the length of Iran's potential "breakout" capacity--the time it takes to purify enough uranium for a single device [in terms of months or a few years]."

There has an infograph and an article on the Iranian people’s optimism in lifting some of the present sanctions.

I have recently read another book on Islam pertaining to women’s rights, the Koran, and Islam’s cultural ideologies. I selected this topic in order to share Wafa Sultan’s—a medically educated and trained Syrian ex-Muslim who resides in the United States now—experiences and analogies of Islam.

Her book, A God Who Hates, is an eye-opener.

“The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God.”
—John Quincy Adams


“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!”
—Winston Churchill


"Wherever the Christians have been unable to resist [the Mohammedans] by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared."
—Teddy Roosevelt

“To preserve our freedoms from the encroachment of Islam, we must do four things: defend freedom of speech, reject cultural relativism, counter Islamization, and cherish our national identity.”
—Geert Wilders, author of Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me



‘When you speak calmly to a Muslim, he perceives you as being weak. The American saying “speak softly and carry a big stick,” is, unfortunately, of no use when dealing with Muslims. It would be more appropriate to say (until we can change this way of thinking), “speak forcefully and carry a big stick”; otherwise you will be the weaker party and the loser.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘The Koran is an Arabic book, and Islam forbade its translation into any other language. … Although the Koran has been rendered into other languages, these translations are not completely faithful, and Islam, as I mentioned above, forbids translation of the Koran. Because of this prohibition, translators refer to their work as “An English translation of the meaning of the Koran.” Naturally, in their work they try to convey the meaning with the greatest political correctness. When you read the Koran in English or in any other language, you are reading not a literal translation, but, rather, the meaning that the translator wants to impart to the text.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘Non-Arab Muslims pray in Arabic without understanding it. They repeat the words parrot fashion. This is also the case when they read the Koran. I have not the slightest doubt that many Christians who live in the Arab world know a great deal more about Islam than non-Arab Muslims do. What is more, Christians who live in Arab countries are more influenced behaviorally and intellectually by Muslim culture than non-Arab Muslims are. … When an Arab-speaking Muslim prays, he understands what the prayer means, while a non-Arab Muslim repeats the prayer without understanding it. … A Muslim prays five times a day, and on each occasion he recites the Fatiha, the first verse of the Koran, a number of times. This verse describes Christians as “those who have gone astray” and Jews as “those who have incurred Your wrath [also God’s wrath].” We see from this that Muslims execrate Christians and Jews a number of times in the course of a single prayer, which they repeat five times a day. Non-Arab Muslims are unaware that they are cursing the Christians and the Jews, because they pray in Arabic without understanding what they are saying. This means that the quantity of hatred they absorb from their prayers is less than that absorbed by Arab Muslims, who are aware of what they are saying.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

“I return here to an earlier point: the necessity of studying terrorism as a phenomenon in the laboratories of behavioral psychology in order to discover the connection between violence and reading matter [, especially the Koran]. Muslim culture, from its Arab beginnings, has canonized violence at all levels. Language is the means by which a culture imposes itself, and members of the community are a linguistic product, and therefore also a cultural one”
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘The language of violence and strife has extended into all areas of life in the Arab world. An arithmetic textbook in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq posed the following question to third-grade primary-school pupils: “Our brave soldiers killed 1,500 members of the enemy Iranian forces, wounded 1,800 others, and took 150 captive. What was the total extent of enemy losses, including dead, wounded and captive?” Can arithmetic be taught to third-grade students without the inclusion of a body count?’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘The Koran does not distinguish between the concepts of “force” and “power.” It confuses the two in an odd manner, and God’s power manifests itself only as an ability to use force. What is the real difference between the two concepts? A person has power when he can do what needs to be done in a peaceable manner appropriate to the circumstances. He will resort to force only when he is powerless. In other words, power represents peace, while force represents violence.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

“We imbibed with our mothers’ milk hatred for the Jews and for anyone who supported their cause. We justified this hatred by devising a conspiracy theory, and we called anyone who disagreed with us a Zionist agent. This conspiracy theory helped keep Muslims inside the straitjacket in which Islam had imprisoned their minds. … Islam’s general attitude toward the Jews helped Muslims construct their conspiracy theory and use it as a weapon against anyone who tried to cast doubts upon the credibility and morality of Islamic teachings. With the aid of this weapon, they have been largely successful in attaining their objective.”
—Wafa Sultan, a Syrian Muslim and author of A God Who Hates

This is an excellent question, Ms. Noting Commentator!

People need to realize that the U.S. is the primary target for the Iranians and Israel, secondary. We are the BIG Satan.

This is very frightening, and our government should be PREVENTING the Iranians from making the bombs, not trying to engage them and give them more stalling time. The Iranians have absolutely no intention of NOT making the bomb or doing anything else anybody asks them. They are playing for time, and we may have an EMP on our hands or worse.

maybe the thought is so unutterably awful that even world leaders feel safer looking the other way and pretending the iranian megalomaniacs will leave them alone. hard to get any real sense of alarm in the media. i guess no-one wants another war.

And, as usual, it is the majority of the Iranian people who will suffer for their dictatorial islamic government's actions. They tried to rise up and shake off their oppressive government too, but the Obama and the West ignored them and, instead, supported the islamic uprisings backed by the Saudis through the equally oppressive Muslim Brotherhood. Nothing makes sense and no one seems to care much.

I feel for the real people who want nothing to do with all of this maniacal madness, and maybe Obama and his Saudi friends were afraid if the Iranians were successful in throwing off islam's tyrannical oppression that all the other islamic occupied countries and peoples would take heart and do the same thing. After all only 2% of Iranians now attend mosques. Their hatred of islam would spread and we would perhaps see a whole new and promising future rising from the 7th century hatred and oppression that rules so many peoples the world over and causes so much misery.

May the people win!

Thanks for this

@ Everyone:

I am quite confused.
There are people still posting on last week’s article, and I cannot get many people interested in studying this inforgraph and reading this article.
Unfortunately, this posting is being ignored.
I was hoping people would get involved in this serious issue; however, everyone is avoiding it.
Unfortunately, the estimated time for finishing a nuclear bomb is something to be very concerned about.
We should be observant and diligent in finding a resolve of some sort before there is a major loss of lives.
I guess, with Care2, one cannot cover the most serious issues, because everyone is in denial and avoiding the critical ones.

They are no closer than 10 years ago. Thanks to Obama's diplomacy.
