John Quincy Adams on Islam


John Quincy Adams, was the 6th President of the United States. He is not to be confused with his father, John Adams, who was one of the Founding Fathers and the 2nd President of the United States.

I am quite impressed with John Quncy Adam's grasp of the true nature of Islam. Even in the early 19th century John Quincy Adams knew more about Islam's tyranny than most people know in the 21st. Adams wrote a series of essays on government and foreign policy, and one of the subjects he wrote about was Islam. The following was quoted in Robert Spencer's book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades.

“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he [Muhammad] connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adam's capital letters)….Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”

In another essay Adams wrote:

“…he [Muhammad] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God.” [From Frontpage Magazine]
-----------------
I like the way John Quincy Adams "tells it like it is": that Muhammad was an audacious imposter, a FALSE PROPHET. The essence of Islam is violence and lust, continuing warfare against all mankind, the exaltation of the brutal part of man's nature over the spiritual.

If ever there were an anti-Christ, it was Muhammad. If Jesus was "God made flesh," clearly Muhammad was Satan made flesh, the embodiment of evil. His religion and his God are nothing more than a disgusting lie.

Great post, Stogie.

This is one of my favorite periods of American History.

It's interesting to compare Adams and Jefferson (his successor) with Clinton and Bush. Adams calculated that appeasing Barbary pirates, the terrorists of their times, was the more "realistic" policy rather than pursuing the enemy into their lair.

"We out not to fight them at all unless we determine to fight them forever. This thought, I fear, is too rugged for our people to bear."
(Adams writing to president Jefferson)

Jefferson shared my attitude: "A coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a man of spirit."

Oops... I just followed your wikipedia link, and now realize, to my embarrassment, that I've confused the two Adams.... your post was about the **son**, not the father!

Sorry....

(Maybe that just furthers my comparison, as the son was more awake than the father.)

CH, the error was mine in describing him as a Founding Father. It was his dad who was the Founding Father. I've corrected my post to reflect this.

That's what MTP did, all right. It wasn't the voice of an angel that he heard.

2Cor 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

Excellent post from an excellent book. JQA was one of our finest and most overlooked presidents. He had an abiding appreciation for the traditions and values of our Western Civilization. Too often, the Bush's are compared to the Adams'. This is an gross injustice to the Adams.

If ever there were an anti-Christ, it was Muhammad (MHRIH). If Jesus was "God made flesh," clearly Muhammad (MHRIH) was Satan made flesh, the embodiment of evil. His religion and his God are nothing more than a disgusting lie.

Truer words!

"the Bush's are compared to the Adams'. This is an gross injustice to the Adams."

CM, you got that right. The Adams never called Islam a "religion of peace." They knew the truth and weren't afraid to say it.

Stogie said...

CM, I just figured out what "MHRIH" stands for! LOL!

Charles Martel said...

stogie,

You're the first that has figured it out! Or at least that has commented on it. Mohammad (MHRIH) is certainly deserving of this entreaty.

Keep up the good work on your web site!
