Would the Daily Caller publish an article entitled “Jesus Is The Cure For The ISIS Crisis,” and calling upon Iraqis and Syrians to convert to Christianity? Of course it wouldn’t. Not only would its multicultural sensitivities forbid it, but the very idea would be absurd. The problem is that this is just as absurd. There are about 10-15 million Ahmadi Muslims in the world, out of over a billion Muslims. The chances of some large-scale conversion of Muslims to the Ahmadiyya is absolutely nil, especially since Ahmadis are widely regarded as heretics and apostates, and are violently persecuted in Pakistan and Indonesia.
So why is the Daily Caller publishing this? Probably because they are so avid to highlight a “moderate Muslim” foe of The Islamic State that they don’t care (and likely don’t know) how risible what Qasim Rashid is saying really is. What’s more, Qasim Rashid is a truly vile human being, full of hatred and venom for the Infidel, and abundantly and repeatedly displaying how much of the general Islamic contempt for the unbeliever carries over into peaceful Ahmadi Islam. He is also repeatedly and relentlessly dishonest, whitewashing the reality of jihad violence and Sharia oppression; lying about the Qur’an’s sanction of taqiyya, the deception of unbelievers; lying about the presence of violent passages in the Qur’an; lying about the Qur’an’s sanction of beating disobedient women; lying about the nature of Sharia; lying about Muhammad’s record of abducting and enslaving women; and calling for limitations on the freedom of speech and expression to outlaw behavior and speech some Muslims may find offensive.

We’ve all heard the old adage – those who don’t learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.
With the rise of ISIS, the world is at such a crossroads once again, except this time the stakes are much higher and the situation much more dire. In response to ISIS, His Holiness the Khalifa of Islam, Mirza Masroor Ahmad has unequivocally declared, “The actions and statements of ISIS and other extremists who pretend to represent Islam, whilst all the while spreading hatred and violence, run entirely contrary to the peaceful teachings of Islam.”
But ISIS did not come into existence overnight. ISIS is the result of decades of ignoring the lessons of history.
Back in the 1980s, His Holiness’s predecessor Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad warned the world of the rise of Pakistan’s Dictator Zia ul Haqq. Dictator Zia championed death for apostasy and death for breaking blasphemy laws. He empowered those who soon became the Taliban and gave carte blanche approval to the destruction of religious minorities. Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad lectured worldwide, held countless press conferences, and wrote dozens of books and articles demanding separation of mosque and state, championing universal freedom of conscience, and imploring a united front against Dictator Zia’s extremist regime….
For over a decade His Holiness the Khalifa of Islam Mirza Masroor Ahmad has carried on his predecessor’s torch of tolerance and peace, and has responded emphatically against terrorism….
