Malcolm X's Fight Against Islam

Decent Essays
Malcolm X who was a devoted Muslim took a more harsh route. He used his knowledge of scriptures and stories from the bible to scare people into wanting equal rights for all. This isn’t the only reason why he did this. He also wanted to try and convert people over to Islam by stating that God was going to destroy this world and everybody that didn’t call him Allah. He was trying to say that if you weren’t a Muslim then you would also have to feel the mighty hand of God. He made it sound as if segregation was a war against Islam which it wasn’t. He tried to scare people into thinking that God creator of all were going to be ruthless against us and destroy us. That is unless we gave up segregation and converted to Islam. He also tells us that

    The columnists use counter claims against what the Republican party say about the Muslims.Throughout the article, the columnists speak on religion which allured to the religious audience. An example of this is when Mr. Carson told The Hill newspaper that, “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.” This is pathos because it is speaking to the Muslim audience in essentially bashing their personal and religious…

    In theory, if we don’t blame Christianity for the Klu Klux Klan, why do we blame Islam for ISIS? Muslims around the world are desperately trying to show that they do not condone the violence of ISIS, with other religions also trying to establish sympathy for Islam. Rabbi Marc Schneier, a Jewish pastor who sympathizes with the non-ISIS affiliated Muslims says, “Islamic extremism is a genuine threat to world peace, but those who lump all Muslims together and dismiss as meaningless the courageous stand of the moderate majority against extremism, aren’t helping to win that battle” (qtd. in Malcolm). Despite claims that hate crimes against Muslims have increased, many such as Senator Rubio don’t believe these claims.…

    He said this because he didn’t want the other Muslims to look at the Christians and Jews and think “hey they have a better life than me, maybe I should join their religion” This was a major issue for the Muslims. They feared that some of the Muslims would convert to Judaism and Christianity. If Jews and Christians converted the Muslims then the Muslim population would deplete and the Christians and Jews would overthrow the Muslims. This document was written to persuade other Muslims to treat the Christians and Jews the way Shaikh Hasan Al Kafrawi thought they ought to be treated. He needed to start the fire and let other people join in on the mistreatment of the Christians and Jews the way he thought they should be treated.…

Gentries further articulates that “all Muslims are at war with America” (theonion.com). He goes on further to say that he refuses to believe an “illuminating facts” that could contradict his opinion (theonion.com).

They believe, unlike other countries, they are the soldiers who stomp down nationalism .They feel honored to commit Jihad under the Lord 's command because of the authority of a supreme being and their hatred for nationalism.

    It was obvious that that the Christian’s would make Islamic religion sound terrible since their goal during that time period was to convert as many people to Christianity. Historian Karen Armstrong talks about the misconceptions about Islam, “‘The West misunderstands Islam largely because we 've got a deep cultural prejudice that is as deeply ingrained as our anti-Semitism, which developed alongside it from about the time of the Crusades. We 've got into the habit of projecting our own shortcomings onto Islam, just as we did upon the Jews.’”( Russell Gonzaga, Americans Misunderstand Islam, http://www.galegroup.com). What Armstrong is saying is that getting the same treatment they gave to the Jewish people. In the twenty-first century race is no longer a factor in determining if someone is Muslim since a lot of people of different color can convert to any religion.…

    Spread Of Islam

    Any faithful Muslim will make the claim that the Words of the Bible were given by God, but were corrupted by men later on, thus rendering the Bible untrustworthy, and leaving the need for another sacred book (in this case, the Qur’an). When considering why Muslims use another book for their religious instruction, many ponder upon passages like Galatians 1:6-9, 2 Timothy 3:16, 17, and 2 Peter 1:3, and wonder how any kind of religious group could even try getting away with saying they agree with the Bible, while adding another “sacred” text. Well, Muhammad successfully (in the sense of his deceiving of his listeners) claimed that the Bible was contaminated by men and changed (Qur’an 2:75). In response to this, an important question must be and is asked: “If you believe the Bible is corrupted, then how do you know that the Qur’an isn’t corrupted too, since it makes mention of the Torah and many of the same people the Bible mentions?” Many respond to the claim something like this: “The parts of the Bible that agree with the Qur’an are not corrupted, by all parts that do not agree with the Qur’an are the parts that are corrupted.” This is an amazing coincidence! Their claim is, that the only parts of the Bible that are wrong are the parts that disagree with their doctrine!…
