Islam is a religion of peace


Thank you Pro, for starting this debate.

I insist that Pro states his argument first, as the burden of proving the benefit of the doubt is always on Pro.

I also insist that we use Oxford Dictionaries definition of Jihad:
(among Muslims) a war or struggle against unbelievers.

I understand fully that in Arabic, a Jihad is a noun whos litteral emaning is the act of "striving, applying oneself, struggling, persevering", but historically, and in modern times, Jihads have been used as war against other cultures.

Next I would like to make clear Muhammad's history. The Following is a passage of "The Life of Muhammad" and The Qur'an. (Quran 33:26) (Quran 33:9-11)

"In March 627 AD, the tribe known as the Banu Qurayzah were besieged and isolated by their Muslim attackers led by Muhammad. They twice offered to leave their stronghold but Muhammad refused their request. He insisted they surrender unconditionally and subject themselves to his judgement. Compelled to surrender, the Qurayzah were led to Medina. A third (and final) appeal for leniency was made to Muhammad by their tribal allies, the Aus. Again Muhammad refused. Instead he orchestrated a sentence of death to be placed on the Banu Qurayzah by appointing a man with a grudge against them to pass judgement."

"About 800 men were led to trenches dug in the Market of Medina and there they were beheaded, their decapitated bodies buried in the trenches while Muhammad watched. Male youths who had not reached puberty were spared. Women and children were sold into slavery, some being distributed as gifts among Muhammad’s companions. Muhammad himself took the most beautiful as his sex slave"

It is Clear that Mohammad was a Military Conquerer, A gruesome executioner, and an avid participant in the Sex slave industry.

To wrap things up, Pro will have to prove that Mohammad did not indeed do the things mentioned, and must agree to the previous definitions mentioned.

Quran 8:12 " "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Quran 8:15 " "O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey"s end."
