About

Welcome to Islamoscope.

Islamoscope is a blog styled resource putting radical Islam under the microscope.

We believe that by creating awareness of the radical element of Islam both moderate Muslims and non-Muslims from all religious and ethnic persuasions can ensure we can still enjoy the freedoms created in the West free from radical persecution. These freedoms include the freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom to exercise sexual preference, freedom to elect governments and the countless freedoms we daily take for granted.

  1. Enjoy trying to convince people farfetched conspiracy theories are true. In fact, have fun convincing yourself they even almost make sense.

  2. […] saying on that topic here on WordPress.com. One of the blogs I came across was Islamoscope, whose About page says: We believe that by creating awareness of the radical element of Islam both moderate […]

  3. HI!

    I’ve posted soem general commentary about your site, primarily about your “About” page, here on my own blog.

  4. Continue spreading your lies , you Anti-Islamics subscribe to the Nazi belief that that if a lie is spoken loud enough and spoken repeatedly, it will be believed.

  5. I wish to ask you

    Have tyou ever bothered to visit Islamic websites or to ask a Muslim scholar to check whether your claims against Quran , women in Islam, and Prophet Muhammad are true or not ? I would say that your site is extremely biased . You seem to be dead-set on embellishment to the point that its not worth arguing with you at all .

  6. //Continue spreading your lies , you Anti-Islamics subscribe to the Nazi belief that that if a lie is spoken loud enough and spoken repeatedly, it will be believed.//

    Feel free to outline the lies as opposed to calling the bloggers Nazis.

    Fight ideas with ideas and facts with facts not facts with empty accusations and insults.

    Thanks

    Yes, I personally have visited many Islamic websites, consulted many books on Islam by both Muslims, non-Muslims and apostates of Islam. Similarly, I have taken part in much dialogue with Muslims including scholars of Islam, scholars of middle eastern studies and Islamic religious leaders.

    I am also a regular on forums set up by Muslim councils regarding interfaith dialogues. Similarly, I am coauthoring a book peer mentored by an Islamic professor.

    This blog is run by a number of people all of varying degree and they are well informed about much of Islam.

    If you have no intent to debate an issue it shows that it is you who is closed minded and biased.

  8. you are nothing but a bunch of islamophobics, lacking any talents in your writings. Islam is becoming powerful day by day giving weakness to you guys, frails.

  9. Would you like to backup your statements or leave them empty and baseless?

    What has the reference of Islam’s growth have to do with anything? There are more new Christians every day/year than there are Muslims every day/year so by your logic even though Islam is growing more powerful, Christianity is growing even more powerfully and thus making Islam even weaker in comparison.

    Sounds fallacious to me.

  10. By meaning that Islam is the fastest growing religion , we mean growth in number of converts to Islam from other religions especially christianity . Here are the facts buddy .

    “Islam is the fastest-growing religion in America, a guide and pillar of stability for many of our people…” (Hillary Rodham Clinton, Los Angeles Times). 1

    “Moslems are the world’s fastest-growing group…” (The
    Population Reference Bureau, USA Today). 2

    “….Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the country.” (Ger-aldine Baum; Newsday Religion Writer, Newsday).

    “Islam, the fastest-growing religion in the United States…”(Ari L. Goldman, New York Times). 4

  11. The number of converts to Islam from other religions has grown manifold ever since 9/11 as you Islamophobes started spreading falshoods relating to Islam, which only encouraged people to study Islam with an open-mind and convert to it .

    One example of this is that the Islamic Information Network Ltd in the past ten years, the ITI has converted more than 5,000 persons to Islam [9] and an additional 1,700 since the September 11 attacks. [10]

    Taken from wiki article on Khaled Yasin , a famous convert to Islam

  12. It is evident that you are unaware of how statistics work. By percentage %, smaller religions outgrow Islam. It is statistically impossible for Islam to outgrow smaller religions by a % unless Islam was attracting around 6 billion more people a year (i.e. more Muslims than the population). An example of this is that Sikhism shares an almost similar % growth rate with Islam, however, even if Sikhism surpasses Islam by growth in % there will still be more converts to Islam as Islam has a higher gross number of persons.

    And my second point remains the same – Islam is not the fastest growing religion by converts or raw numbers. Notice none of your references state that point. Christianity grows at almost twice the amount of converts per year as Islam as it is a larger religion. Similarly, the growth of pentecostalism in America enjoys a growth rate surpassing that of Islam, especially by converts from other religions. And Protestantism, though heavily policed, in Vietnam enjoys a 600% growth rate. See the difference percentage statistics make when compared to raw persons?

    I invite you to research statistics and the use of percentage as a measurement for growth.

  13. And please note that by calling this website ‘Islamophobic’ and other derogatory terms implies that you agree with the injustices committed in the name of Islam such as the attacks condemned, the oppression condemned and much more.

    What does this site need to prove to someone who finds murder, violence and oppression permissible and worthy of defence?

  14. Islam is fastest growing both in % rate and both in number of converts

  15. Again you do not understand statistics.

    I will give you a hint using your sources to prove that Islam is not the fast growing religion by raw numbers. (Notice none of your sources made that claim).

    Times the growth rate by the number of adherents for both Christianity and Islam:

    Islam: 1.3*0.0184 = 0.02392

    Christianity: 2.2 * 0.0138 = 0.03036

    0.03036 > 0.02392
    i.e. There are more new Christians every day/week/month/year than new Muslims.

    Do you understand now? Your own sources proved you wrong, my friend.

    And if you actually read those resources you would notice that the reason for the increases. (Note, this contradicts your claim as well.) –

    *Christianity: High birthrates and CONVERSIONS in the global South

    *Islam: High birthrates in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe

    So unlike Islam which gains adherents through high birthrates, Christianity gains numbers from converts.

    In terms of conversions, it is probably Pentecostal Christianity that is winning. In 2000 there were 115 million Pentecostals and by 2005 there were just under 600 million. That was a 490% increase in 5 years, most due to conversions.

    In summary:

    1. In terms of raw numbers, Christianity is growing much faster than Islam (as your own sources prove, contrary to your claims).

    2. The increase in Muslims is due to higher birthrates, whereas Christianity attracts converts (again conflicting your claim and proven by your own sources). Note, the reason for the increase in the West is due to immigration, not conversions as you claim

    3. The fastest growing religion on a worldwide scale in my opinion, as per the statistics and other authors most probably belongs to Pentecostalism and not Islam. However, Pentecostalism is classified under Christianity in the sources you provided.

    I believe you have been unequivocally proven wrong.

  16. And since you enjoy quotes so much:

    This quote relates to JUST Africa:

    ” In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity”
    – Sheikh Ahmad Al Qataani;
    The president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law in Libya

  17. You seem to have a good heart, you guys are trying to do something good, which is point out that muslims aren’t bad people, and to keep lies from spreading, however, I believe you make false claims. unfortunately, I am not a muslim scholar, nor do I have enough knowledge and understanding of the Quran to point out direct errors in your claims, however, I urge you to provide evidence of the claims you made in your “about” page.

    “Are men really superior to women as the Qur’an says? Are women intellectually inferior as Muhammad taught? Does propagating material (the Qur’an) that openly curses people of other religions amidst random calls to violence really improve the health of our societies? Is it right to keep women as sex slaves, merely because the Qur’an explicitly allows it in multiple places? Should atheists and homosexuals have to choose between the noose and an outward profession of faith in Allah?”

    Where are your sources? I won’t say that I disagree with you on any of these points, nor will I say that I agree with you, as some of your claims I believe are incorrect, but I would like to see some sources that prove these claims that you are basing your crusade on.

    regardless of your methods, your goals seem to be good on the surface, though, I question your integrity when you make seemingly false and unproven claims.

  18. Hi Hesham and thankyou for your comment:)

    “Are men really superior to women as the Qur’an says? Are women intellectually inferior as Muhammad taught?…Is it right to keep women as sex slaves, merely because the Qur’an explicitly allows it in multiple places?”

    This is in relation to numerous claims made throughout the Qur’an. One such example is in Sura 2:228 where Muhammad claims that women have similar rights to men, but men are a degree above them. Sura 4:24 and 33:52 where men are allowed to take sex slaves to satisfy their needs without consideration of a womans rights. It also makes reference to Muhammad’s claim that unlike men, women are inherently inferior in intelligence and religion than men. (Hadith Bukhari 6:301), “‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'” etc.

    There is much evidence of this claim that I haven’t listed. Just as there is plenty of evidence supporting the other claims that I will respond to once time permits.

    Your comments and questioning of the claims made before you is appreciated:)

    Don’t blindly accept anyones words when not justified.

  19. Mazin, I am still awaiting a reply regarding the growth rates 🙂

  20. All I can say that is christian missionaries have perfected the art of peddling christianity in Africa , where they take advantage of relatively higher religious ignorance of muslims .

  21. Your source agrees with the practice of men being able to take women as sex slaves. I really do not hope that this is some sort of deception in attempting to discredit the claim as it agrees with it.

    Readers, for yourself you may see here: http://www.ourdialogue.com/answers/articles.php?action=show&showarticle=2083

  22. please read the other link , it says women who are taken as captives of war , and not as so called “sex slaves”

    http://www.ourdialogue.com/answers/articles.php?action=show&showarticle=3218

  23. here is another site relating to slavery claims ;

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/human.htm

  24. Please stop attempting to play a semantics game or trying to water down the words of the Qur’an that state that a man may take whatever slaves he owns for sex.

    This is a very low tactic.

  25. “All I can say that is christian missionaries have perfected the art of peddling christianity in Africa , where they take advantage of relatively higher religious ignorance of muslims .”

    But then you would be lying, and or avoiding any factual basis other than Islamic propaganda. In order to convert in Africa, Islamic ‘evangelists’ employed the method of offering a stipend to male converts (i.e. pay them money once they converted).

    As I said, we speak in facts, truth and evidence not rhetoric and deception.

  26. Now please do not avoid the other points!

    You claimed that Islam has more converts than Christianity, Islam has more new Muslims than any other religion a day/month/year and other false claims.

    Will you admit them to be false or continue in your path of deception?

  27. One example of Christian propaganda in Africa
    Christian Missionaries Sweeping the Islamic World

    http://islamworld.net/docs/tanseer.htm

  28. On a side note, I would ask you to yourself refrain from using answering-Christianity.org as a reference site.

    The authors of that website have been caught out many times making fake claims in the name of propagating Islam.

    One notable event was when they claimed that there were 360 joins in the human body and used fake sources in order to prove a hadith. This was in fact false.

    Another event was proof that the first man was 60 cubits tall, as per another hadith. In this claim the author invented a FAKE scientific article for a FAKE scientific journal between two FAKE scientific and religious experts.

    So any rational person would not use such a site for any proof as itself is fallacious.

  29. “One example of Christian propaganda in Africa
    Christian Missionaries Sweeping the Islamic World”

    You were meant to follow up with facts not a pointless nonsensical reply.

    Try again;)

    Edit: Nice to see you edit the link in.

    I asked for facts not Islamic propaganda. For example “It is also sad that the aids that muslims send were distributed by Christians such as the Red Cross”. Fact, the Red Cross isn’t a Christian organisation. Only an ignorant propagandist would make such claims.

  30. The same is true for the Answering Islam team and their Islamophobic bandwagon ,

  31. You make so many claims but you never have any evidence.

    Now back to the points-

    Were you wrong or intentionally lying when you continually stated that Islam was gaining more members every day/month/year/etc than every other religion?

    Were you wrong or intentionally lying when you made other claims such as Islam growing through conversions, and faster at this than other religions?

    Stop the propaganda for a moment and be rational and use some facts.

    Remember, no matter how many times you repeat your lies, Mazin, they will never become truths.

  32. is in Sura 2:228 where Muhammad claims that women have similar rights to men, but men are a degree above them//

    Rebuttal to this :

    http://www.ourdialogue.com/answers/articles.php?action=show&showarticle=1660

  33. Now play fair, Mazin.

    I have continually shown myself to personally rebut your false claims, lies and intentional propagandist deception.

    Now show me some courtesy and respond to the multiple times I shoot down your false and intentionally misleading propaganda.

    I still have many questions above posed to you.

    Are you afraid to answer them?
    Or are you intent on spreading your lies?

  34. And for your further information, those claims you made about Khalid Yasin are totally unverifiable. If he is a famous convert to Islam I would hate to see the unpopular ones.

    What does Khalid Yasin stand for?

    1. Subjugation of Women
    2. Hating Jews and Christians
    3. Hate of homosexuals (Yes, they are people too)
    4. Execution of homosexuals
    5. Brainwashing of Non-Muslims
    6. Fraud and Commercial Misrepresentation
    7. Conspiracy theories to defame other groups. E.g. He blames AIDS on Christian missionaries and the 9/11 attacks on the US government.
    8. He is a liar – he claimed to have academic degrees he did not.

    If this is the person you look up to I really do pity your judgment.

    (All these points are in the wikipedia article you referenced)

  35. Looks like Mazin has been sent packing with his tail between his legs. =)

  36. unfortunately, statistics tell only part of the story.
    There are more than a few people in Islamic countries who would leave the religion or perhaps convert to another, e.g. Bahai in Iran, who dare not because of the consequences for themselves and their families. To be an “apostate” in Islam is to bring upon yourself deadly consequences.
    Better to keep your mind numb and your mouth shut and go with the flow. Don’t ask questions and don’t rock the boat.
    The moderates certainly won’t defend you when the radicals come to your home to slit your throat for abandoning your birth religion.
    “Ein volk. Ein reich. Ein Caliph”

  37. Now to further add, are you aware of the aids epidemic? Can you tell me whose responsible for this? Obviously if you were brainwashed like millions of children in the west then you would say it came from monkeys. But NO!! The virus was produced in Fort McKinley United States and taken to Africa by christians missionaries and you can find this by searching smokin gunz hiv aids on your google search engine because it was released under the freedom of infromation act. So it is the christians responsible for the death of millions every year!!

  38. Why did you remove them? Whats your excuse? Tell me your excuse and if you have any rebuttals email them to me. Face the facts, Islam is the religion of Truth and your criticism is without evidence and backbone. If you want me to repost my comments please tell me. Are you a good christian removing my comments?

  39. Of course I deleted your personal attacks that had nothing to do with the About page. And I will continue to do so. When you bring forward an appropriate argument on a page that actually has something to do with it, you will see your posts right there being engaged.

    So once you grow up we can get started!

    • C’mon, lets just look at your name. “Your a Liar” (sic). And how do you open your posts? By calling me a liar. Do you explain any of these supposed lies? Nope, all you do is have false attack after false attack. Obviously, you prefer deception to truth – and it seems that only through deception you can almost defend some of the horrible aspects of Islam, both historic and contemporary.
