I will take the position that Islam is a peaceful religion, but is perverted by certain sects to become an excuse for violence.

Islam is in no shape or form a religion of peace.

Jews and Christians are known as dhimmis and have to pay a special tax (jizya) if they live in a country with an Islamic government in order to keep them from being murdered. If they don't pay, Muslims will force them to (Sura 9: 29)

Quran (17:16) - "And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction." It is interesting that Osama bin Landen sent a formal invitaiton to the Americans to join Islam before 9/11 (http://www.theguardian.com...).

Islam has been violent from the beginning. Muhammad marched on Mecca with 10,000 converts, intending to take over the city and forcibly convert its inhabitants to islam. However, the people of Mecca were intimidated by the sheer number of Muslims and quickly surrendered.

Quran (47:3-4) - "Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)... If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost." Those who reject Allah are to be killed in Jihad. The wounded are to be held captive for ransom. The only reason Allah doesn't do the dirty work himself is to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test.

Quran (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way" Religion of peace! Hah!

Quran (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end." In the original Arabic, the root word used here is jihad.

ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban aren't perverting Islam at all. In fact, according to the Quran, the ones perverting Islam are the peaceful Muslims that you see in the U.S. All that these extremist groups are doing is just reading the Quran and following its instructions.

Bukhari (52:256) - The Prophet... was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, "They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans)." In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.

Bukhari (52:220) - Allah's Apostle said... 'I have been made victorious with terror'

Muslim (1:30) - "The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah."

Muslim (1:149) - "Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause..." Here you have the call to Jihad from Muhammad's own mouth!

4:34 Husbands should take full care of their wives, with [the bounties] God has given to some more than others and with what they spend out of their own money. Righteous wives are devout and guard what God would have them guard in the husbands’ absence. If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great. (Haleem) You call Islam a religion of peace when husbands are allowed to beat their wives?

The Quran is clear. Islam is a religion of violence and is inherently evil in its goals.

I originally accepted this debate as a sort of devil's advocate to see if I could create an argument for Islam being peaceful. While I could post some quotes from the Quran about Islam being peaceful, according to the doctrine of abrogation those quotes are later overridden. I concede this debate.

Sorry, you should try posting this debate again and see if you can find someone who actually believes Islam is peaceful
