Please watch this interview of Walid Shoebat, Zak Anani, and Ibrahim Abdullah. Shoebat is a former Palestinian terrorist; all three of these men have stood back and taken an objective look at the religion and culture of Islam they were raised in and have seen its evil. Watch the entire video. You don't get the full message until the end.
Depending on the country, Arab media polls and these men say that 60% to 75% of the entire Muslim population agree with the concept of Jihad and the destruction of all Jews and Christians.
And it's not a secret. They tell us constantly, yet we in the West stand here like we didn't hear it. Is the idea just too absurd to believe? Do we think it can't happen? Granted, most Muslims are not running around with RPGs or bomb vests, but the majority support those who do and they pour money into organizations that fund and train the more energetic and aggressive ones.
We in the West hold the religious, social, and career parts of our lives separately. Muslims do not. Islam controls all aspects of their lives and it teaches hate above all else. Islam is their primary allegiance above nationality and all else.
Islam is in direct opposition and in conflict with the old and new testaments of the Bible. In the Muslim mind, if the Bible is true, then Islam is a false religion and that is the root of the hate and fear. For Islam to be the true religion it must prevail and destroy Judaism and Christianity. You don't have to be a practicing Jew or Christian to be a target of Islam.
Foreign policy and support of Israel having nothing to do with it. There is nothing you can do to appease them short of converting to Islam and even that may not save you if you choose the wrong sect and are in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Muslim theologians had to justify this compulsion. Here is the reason given by a famous scholar:
"No compulsion" is a condemnation of compelling people to do evil generally, but compelling people in the truth is a religious duty. Does the infidel get killed for any thing except on the basis of his religion? The Prophet said: I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah. This Hadith is taken from the words of Allah 'Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah (Q. 2:193).
If some one asks how can people be compelled in the truth when the mere fact of compelling indicates a the violation of the will of the one compelled? The first answer is that Allah sent Mohammad calling people to Him, showing the way to the truth, enduring much harm ... until the evidence of Allah's truth became manifest ... and His apostle became strong, He ordered him to call people by the sword ... hence there is no more an excuse after being warned. The second answer is that people first are taken and compelled, but when Islam becomes prevalent ... and they mix and make friends ... their faith strengthens and finally becomes sincere.”
According to the above :
1. Muslims believe that they have the right to compel people to accept Islam because it is the truth.
2. Muslims believe that Mohammad was given a divine command to fight against people, not in self defence or for economical or political reasons, but because people do not worship the one Mohammad worshipped.
3. The above scholar had no value for the human free will. To him, forcing Islam on people is justified if later on they will become Muslims. It is not an exaggeration then to say that the sword is Allah's final word.
