Debate Round No. 1
KingDebater

Con

1. Deserving Death
How could a force for good consider so many things worthy of death? The following are things that Muslims consider to be worthy of Death:
i) Non-muslims, which are considered by Muslims as 'infidels' [2].
ii) Denying the existence of God [1].
iii) Adultery [1].
iv) Mocking god or the prophets [1].
v) Drinking alcohol [1].
vi) Worshipping Idols [1].
vii) Rejecting the Sharia [1].
viii) Converting [1].
ix) Eating 'forbidden foods' [1].
x) Depicting the Prophet [3].
xi) The consumption of Pork [4].

2. Discrimination
Islam discriminates non-Muslims [1] [2], and Jews [5], who are taught to be pigs.

3. Terrorism
There's no doubt that there is a linked between Islam and Terrorism [6] [7]. 9/11 anyone?

4. Brainwashing
Look at 'e! [5] [8] [9]

Conclusion
Unless Pro can justify eleven threats of death, discrimination, terrorism and brainwashing, I conclude that Islam is not a force for good.

You've used the word you're defining in your definition, and your definition is far too vague -- semantics would be unavoidable at this stage.
