I hereby challenge DavidMGold to this debate. It should be kept in mind that Pro's goal in this debate is not to prove that Islam is a violent religion, but that it is simply more violent than other major religions. If Pro accepts, then he will agree to adhere by these definitions:

Muslim: Someone who identifies themselves as a follower of the Islamic faith, and believes in Allah as depicted in The Qur'an. For the purposes of this debate, we will adhere to the Hilali-Khan translation of The Qur'an.

Violence: The intentional use of physical force or power against another person or group, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment, or deprivation.

The first round of debate will simply be used to agree to adhere to the rules of the debate, and for any other clarifications.


I gladly accept this challenge and welcome this debate. Too often, whenever discussing the prolific violence associated with Islam unfolding in many different nations or specific acts of violence, there is a tendency of someone to raise this falsehood that somehow all other religions are engaged is something comparable without any evidence to support the premise. I agree to the rules and the changes agreed upon, my opponent has the floor to commence this debate.
Debate Round No. 1


At the bottom of this argument are a couple of links to different articles reporting on findings by London's ICM, showing that Muslims in the U.K. reported donating more money to charity than Jews and Christians who also donated [1] [2]. This is likely due to Zakat, one of the Five Pillars of Islam, in which Muslims pay ~2.5% of their wealth every lunar year. This money is then distributed amongst people who are destitute, those who can't afford to cover their basic needs, etc.... This shows that the Islamic people are a very generous people, even willing to help out non-believers (albeit after other Muslims have had their needs fulfilled), similar to other Abrahamic religions.

People often quote the passages depicting the "Merciless, cold-blooded Muslims" in the Qur'an, but forget that these are oftentimes accompanied by passages stating that peace is a better option, and to only fight against those that you must, or those that deserve it.
"So if they withdraw from you, and fight not against you, and offer you peace, then Allah has opened no way for you against them" (4:90)
"Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind." (5:32)
"And We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal. But if anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it shall be for him an expiation. And whosoever does not judge by that which Allah has revealed, such are the Zalimun (Wrongdoers)." (5:45)

In fact, Islam and the Arabic word for peace (Shalaam) both have the same root (S-L-M), which is generally used in words with some relation to peace, or safety. That's not to say, however, that there aren't extremist members of Islam that turn to violence, but almost every religion has such members. The Mountain Meadows Massacre, the Inquisitions, The Jewish Defense League, and so on and so forth.

The Qur'an, to reiterate, teaches that peace is to be attempted, and is the ideal way that things should be. However, it also teaches to fight back with ferocity against those who would attack you and your brethren, again similar to the other Abrahamic religions.
"And fight in the Way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah (Chaos) is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram, unless they first fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. " (2:190-191)



First Rebuttal - Charity in the U.K.

The issue of charitable giving in the U.K. is ultimately irrelevant to this debate, but I will address it. Much of this so-called charitable giving is just a cover for financing Jihad worldwide and an anti-Western agenda. It is not permissable for them to give to non-Muslims and a legitimate target for their charity is financing Islamic military operations. They view natural disasters as punishment sent by Allah. This is an example of Westerners erroneously projecting their values onto Muslims.

Second Rebuttal - The Peace Verses

The Qu'ran isn't ordered chronologically but from the longest to shortest verse. The tolerant or peaceful sounding verses orginate from the Meecan period when Muhammad preached among the Pagans who controlled Meeca. He had very few followers, but once he took Medina and became increasingly militant, so to did the verses. The peaceful verses were abrogated and replaced with the violent verses. Sura 4:90 creeps up from time to time in debate as proof Muslims have no open-ended command to kill unbelievers but the Tafsir al-Jalalayn makes clear that this refers only to unbelievers who submit to Islamic rule. Sura 5:32 was often quoted by George W. Bush and others like Barack Obama to show Islam is a peaceful religion, but this is a complete falsehood. It comes in the context of a warning to Jews and not a universal principle, with an exception being the spreading of mischief in the land. 5:33 - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter." I have examples of this crucifixation occuring in the present. Sura 5:45 is just a bizarre choice and doesn't speak to the fictional peace you ascribe to. Sura 5:51 says Muslims aren't to take Jews or Christians for friends - O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." 52-60 continues with the excoriation of the "people of the book." I will present my Qu'ranic examples in another round to further refute these examples.

Third Rebuttal - 'Something'

Brushing aside the absurd linguistic argument about Islam and Salaam, you make attempt to equivocate saying all religions have extremist factions and you're forgetting the purpose of the debate. Islam has a complete theological doctrine for fighting, killing and subjecating non-believers. You 'other' examples are fairly weak: the Mountain Meadows Massacre was in 1857, a Mormon militia massacred settlers moving from Arkansas to California during a time of war hysteria and they most likely massacred them to conceal the fact they attacked them disguised as native Americans and were fearful of their identity being discovered; the Spanish Inquistion can be viewed in light the Muslim invasion and conquest in 711, and their occupation lasted 700 years being gradually pushed back by Reconquista and Islamists kill more people every year than all 350 years of the Inquistion; the Jewish Defense League to me is another poor example - it boasts 13,000 members but even groups that list JDL say it only has a few dozen, the group is dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and it says they unequivocally condemn terrorism with a strict zero-tolerance against terrorism.

Forth Rebuttal - Defense?

Sura 2:190-191 is said to be proof of defensive warfare only, but this verse was abrogated by Sura 9:1, which voids every treaty between Muslims and non-Muslims. So what is defensive action? Well, Sura 2:193 says, ""And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah." Ibn Ishaq explained must fight against unbelievers and thus unbelief is aggression to the Muslims.

The issue here is clear: are Muslims more violent than the followers of other major religions. Here is empirical evidence - real world examples - demonstrating this contention and there is a complete lack of such evidence from other major religions. Islam has the lion's share of the market when it comes to terrorism and violence.

Here is what we see from Islamic media:

On Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) - September 7, 2012 - A top Palestinian Islamic cleric, Sheik Muhammad Zaghmout, head of the Palestinian Islamic Council in Lebanon, calls upon all Muslims to unite in Jihad. He invoked the words of Allah to strike fear into the hearts of unbelievers with rockets, guns, and Jihad.[1] On Al-Rahma TV (Egypt) - May 4, 2012 - A child preacher calls for Jihad and quotes the Qu'ran saying Jerusalem is held by the "brothers of apes and pigs."[2] On Al-Aqsa TV (Gaza) - August 10, 2012 - a Hamas official, Ahmad Bahr, preaches for the annihilation of Jews and Americans.[3] On Al-Aqsa TV (Gaza) - July 27, 2012 - Egyptian cleric Hashem Islam Ali Islam, Al-Azhar's Fatwa Committee, says suicide bombings are a religious duty.[4] On LTB TV (Egypt) - October 16, 2011 - Muhammad Abd Al-Rahman, son of the Blind Sheik serving a life sentence in the US, expressed admiration for Osama Bin Laden and said, "He was more moral than all of us."[5] On the Internet - July 12, 2013 - at a pro-Morsi demonstration outside Al-Aqsa mosque, islamist Imam Ismat Al-Hammouri screaming "allahu-akbar" says "may America, Britain, and France" be destroyed and "may Rome be conquered." He also tells Obama that "the Caliphate will return."[6] On Amjad TV (Egypt) - May 24 and 31, 2013 - Egyptian cleric Muhammad Al-Zughbi called for the destruction of the Jews and shiites in a Friday sermon.[7] On Al-Jazeera TV (Qatar), Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) - May 8-11, 2013 - a leading sunni scholar Al-Qaradhawi in a visit to Gaza called for Jihad and prayed to Allah that he may become a martyr.[8] On Al-Hafez TV (Saudi Arabia/Egypt) - May 3, 2013 - an Egyptian cleric, Sami Abu Al-'Ala, called on Allah to annihilate all the Jews and make them widows and orphans.[9] On Al-Tahrir TV (Egypt) - April 16, 2013 - an Egyptian salafi cleric, Murgan Salem, said the Boston Bombing was meant to deliver a message and that similar attacks would be carried out in France.[10] On the Internet - August 3, 2013 - a leader in Toronto's Al-Quds Day rally said, "We should give Israelis two minutes to leave Palestine and then start shooting."[11] On Al-Jazeera TV (Qatar) - June 21, 2013 - the founder of Hizb Al-Tahrir in Chicago declared, "The Caliphate is coming, and Britain and America can go to hell."[12] On Hannibal TV (Tunisia) - December 2, 2012 - a Tunisian salafi cleric Khamis Mejri rejects democracy and praises Osama Bin Laden.[13] On The Internet - April 29, 2013 - an Australian islamist Musa Cerantonio declares, "the Pentagon is a legitimate target" and "the blood of Muslims is more dear than that of Western victims."[14] On Press TV (Iran) - April 11, 2013 - a British islamist, Anjem Choudary, said "As Muslims we reject human rights."[15] On Al-Quds TV (Lebanon) - April 18, 2013 - Tareq Hawwas, of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, in a vicious anti-Semitic diatribe said, "If only Hitler had Finished them (Jews) off."[16] On Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) - January 21, 2013 - the Islamic Universities Association Sec.-General, Ja'far Abd Al-Salam, extolled martyrdom as "the most lofty form of Jihad."[17] On Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) - December 2, 2012 - Umm Osama, the wife of Hamas MP Khalil Al-Hayya, said, "A Woman's Role Is to Instill Love of Jihad and Martyrdom in Her Children."[18] On the Internet - December 24, 2012 - Ismail Al-Wahwah, spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia declared, "We will establish the Caliphate," "instate the Shari'a," and "make Arabic the official language."[19] On Al-Risala TV (Kuwait) - March 16, 2012 - Dr. Saud Al-Fanisan, Former Dean of Islamic Law at a Saudi University, said "Islamic law permits the possession of slaves."[20] On Libya Al-Hurra TV (Libya) - September 14, 2012 - a Benghazi Friday sermon preacher, in wake of killing of the US Ambassador, calls on Muslims to "detonate our wrath upon them" and "stab them in their main artery(the Economy)."[21]

This is merely a sample of the proponderance of hate and violence that permeate throughout the Islamic World. There are no equal examples from the other religions that come close to rivaling this vitriol.

Debate Round No. 2


Natural Disasters as Divine Punishment

I'm sure there are plenty of Muslims that believe natural disasters are divine intervention. However, people of most religious groups (especially in America) feel the same way. Hurricane Katrina has been said to be punishment for the homosexual rally New Orleans was planning, due to legislation of abortion, and even that it's just the start of America's "judgement". [1] [2]
As well, a Jewish rabbi used The Talmud as proof that earthquakes, mainly ones along the east coast, are direct punishment for America's increasingly tolerant attitude towards homosexuality. [3] Pat Robertson also claims that the Haiti earthquake was due to a "pact with the devil" which Haitians made in order to be free of French oppression. [4]

Scripture & Violence

There is no doubt there are verses in The Qur'an that condone violence (even if it is with varying restrictions). However, there are many points in The Bible that seem to be very violent.

"And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9)

"But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you." (Deuteronomy 22:13-21)

"Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death." (Exodus 31:14-15)

"That whosoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman." (2 Chronicles 15:13)

"If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the Lord thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you. If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the Lord thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying, certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. and thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the Lord thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again. And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers; When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the Lord thy God." (Deuteronomy 13)

These last few verses state to kill anyone who worships a foreign god. Even, in fact, to raze an entire town. This means to kill everyone and everything within, including its cattle and spoils even, if just a few people have become non-believers.

Extremist Groups

Your dismissal of the JDL as a major terrorist organization seems very quick. They have been labelled by the FBI as the perpetrators of 15 out of the 18 terrorist acts attributed to Jewish groups between 1981 and 1985, as well as one of the most active terrorist groups of their time [5]. They were the prime suspects in the assassination of Alex Odeh [6], fired a machine gun into a mosque [7], and have been attributed as the ones behind many various arsons and bombings.

There are also many Sikh-Based terrorist groups (mostly based around the Khalistan secessionist movement). The largest are the International Sikh Youth Federation and the Khalistan Liberation Front. There are, however, dozens of smaller, less organized groups. They have committed various individual attacks and murders, but by far the most prominent of these is the bombing of the Air India Flight 182, in which there were no survivors.

To say that there are no equal examples of violence in other religions is misguided, as seen from examples of the only religion larger than Islam: Christianity. Even not factoring in wars and genocides in the past caused by Christian beliefs, there are plenty of contemporary accounts.
The Orange Volunteers, an ideologically Protestant group in Northern Ireland mainly attacking Catholics, they have been blamed and/or claimed responsibility for numerous bombings. [8]
There's also the Lord's Resistance Army, a fundamentalist Christian group well-known for the "Kony 2012" fiasco. [9] [10]
As well, there have been huge numbers of crimes committed against various abortionists, abortion clinic employees, and the clinics themselves, mostly committed by Christian Extremists. Since 1977, these have included 41 bombings, 175 arsons, 100 attempted bombings or arsons, 656 bomb threats, 1478 incidents of vandalism, and 100 attacks with butyric acid. [11]
A member of one such group is Michael Bray, who was convicted in 1985 of multiple conspiracies, as well as found to be related to multiple bombings of women's health clinics. In an interview by Richard Dawkins for his documentary "The Root of All Evil?", he is recorded stating that he "believes homosexuality and adultery, if proven in a court with the usual protections of law, should carry a death sentence." [12]

Charity In The U.K.
Muslims can in fact give charity to non-Muslims. While it is preferable to give to Muslims, charity of anyone who needs it (and will not use it for sin) is seen as a good deed. [13]

We can see from these examples that Muslims, while not an exclusively pacifist religion are certainly not the only one, and definitely not the most violent.

DavidMGold forfeited this round.
Debate Round No. 3


I am confused as to why Pro has forfeited the previous round. As I have no new arguments to refute, I will simply use this as an opportunity to show more violent scripture from other religions.

The God of the Christian Bible has condoned ritual sacrifice of humans multiple times. A few times, however, these have been burning sacrifices. Not only unnecessary, but exceedingly cruel and torturous.

30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,

31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the Lord delivered them into his hands.

33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.

34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the Lord, and I cannot go back.

36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the Lord, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the Lord hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.

37 And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.

38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains.

39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man.(Judges 11:30-39)

And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel. (Joshua 7:15)
He also, on multiple occasions, condones rape.

16 Then the elders of the congregation said, How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing the women are destroyed out of Benjamin?

17 And they said, There must be an inheritance for them that be escaped of Benjamin, that a tribe be not destroyed out of Israel.

18 Howbeit we may not give them wives of our daughters: for the children of Israel have sworn, saying, Cursed be he that giveth a wife to Benjamin.

19 Then they said, Behold, there is a feast of the Lord in Shiloh yearly in a place which is on the north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.

20 Therefore they commanded the children of Benjamin, saying, Go and lie in wait in the vineyards;

21 And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances, then come ye out of the vineyards, and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the land of Benjamin.

22 And it shall be, when their fathers or their brethren come unto us to complain, that we will say unto them, Be favourable unto them for our sakes: because we reserved not to each man his wife in the war: for ye did not give unto them at this time, that ye should be guilty.

23 And the children of Benjamin did so, and took them wives, according to their number, of them that danced, whom they caught: and they went and returned unto their inheritance, and repaired the cities, and dwelt in them. (Judges 21:16-23)
15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord.

17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. (Also condones infanticide here)

18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. (Numbers 31:15-18)
23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 22:23-24)
28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.(Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

It can be seen here that Christians often accuse Islamic people of being violent, but one would have a much easier time justifying violent actions with The Bible than with The Qur'an.

Islamic Extremist is to Islamic as ________ is to Christianity. Thank you Josh Lyman.
But those Christians are peaceful.

And may I add, as _______ is to India. Dowry Killings.
But those Hindus are peaceful.

And as _____ is to Judaism. Zionism.
But those Jews are peaceful.

Most statistical research I've heard of shows Muslims to be as or more peaceful than the other three. Anyone who cares to have a debate over this, let me know.

The Power of Nightmares ranks somewhere between Holocaust denial and Lizard people running the world. I feel no need to legitimize it by responding any further.
Posted by DavidMGold 3 years ago
From what I'm seeing in your remarks, your view of the reality in the world today is less informed by evidence and more informed by wishful thinking. Throwing out the term false flag, which is all the rave of conspiracy theorists (although I don't deny such operations have never occurred), it is hardly evident other than your ability to list what makes up the West in your mind (America, NATO, and Israel). And these nations you speak of, while formerly Christian nations, are secular. If you're looking for a debate, get in line, and when I finish this one we can go five rounds and dispense with this nonsense.
Posted by anonymouse 3 years ago
from what ive seen, christians, and jews are the most violent, even going as far as false flag terror to justify violence. this is evident in the actions of the usa, nato, and israel. most of the invasions are done by christian countries like the usa, canada, britain, france, etc. and christian countries spend more on military than the rest of the world combined.

I think rather than looking at violent religions you should actually look at violent political movements and with this I believe you could certainly prove that American Neo Conservatives are on par in terms of danger, spreading terror and the level of violence they encourage than that of their Extreme Islamists.

Will gladly accept given the following changes be made: 5 rounds - 10,000 characters. Also, the freedom to use my own translation of the Qu'ran and I can't see how they could vary that greatly.
