Muslims are terrorists.
Debate Rounds (3)
The Koran says: ""Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not begin aggression, for God loves not aggressors."
Here is a reference from the history:
The killing of innocent non-combatants is forbidden. According to Sunni tradition, "Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, the first Caliph, gave these instructions to his armies: "I instruct you in ten matters: Do not kill women, children, the old, or the infirm; do not cut down fruit-bearing trees; do not destroy any town . . . " (Malik"s Muwatta", "Kitab al-Jihad")
So the world must not relate Islam and religion to terrorism.
You are just citing contradictions in the Qur'an, because there are 109 verses that say contrary to that, Qur'an 3:151:
"We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers."
"So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory - We will bestow upon him a great reward."
"Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,"
There isn't some Qur'an 2 that "radicalized" muslims read from that is different from what "peacefull" Muslims read out of, there is ONE Qur'an, that advocates for terrorism, violence, and attrocities. Proving that the Qur'an contradicts itself doesn't change any of this.
""take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom."(Quran 6:151)
That's not true at all, I wasn't born yesterday, all of that is just Islamic propaganda, the Qur'an says to kill non-muslims in cold blood and to terrorize them, if you want a more bltant verse, Qur'an 9:5:
"And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the unbelievers wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful."
This verse even says to lie in wait for them, clearly not self defense, like I said, I was not born yesterday, you can't just lie and expect meto believe such a blatant audacious lie.
[This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists. (9:1) So travel freely, [O disbelievers], throughout the land [during] four months but know that you cannot cause failure to Allah and that Allah will disgrace the disbelievers. (9:2) And [it is] an announcement from Allah and His Messenger to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah is disassociated from the disbelievers, and [so is] His Messenger.So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away - then know that you will not cause failure to Allah . And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful punishment.(9:3)Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him]. (9:4) And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.But if they should repent,establish prayer,and give zakah,let them [go] on their way.Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (9:5) And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection,then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah .Then deliver him to his place of safety.That is because they are a people who do not know.(9:6)This paragraph refers to the treaty which non-Muslims made to the pilgrims and then defied that.This paragraph announces punishment for the traitors which is death in any law of the world.Islam is just; it punishes the evil and rewards the good.
The context of this verse doesn't change its meaning at all, it says to lie in wait for people, which automatically dississes any clauims of self defense, you cannot "lie in wait to defend yourself."

Reasons for voting decision: Con makes the assertion that Islam is a religion of peace and yet it inspires more violence than any other religion in history. Con failed to disprove the disgusting violence and extremly troubling morals found in the Quran. However, pro used too broad a phrase. "Muslims are terrorists" labels an entire group of people unfairly. There are millions of practicing muslims that are perfectly peaceful people with no terrorist connections. The state of Islam today makes it impossible to prove that it is a religion of peace. There are simply too many horrific acts committed by Islamic extremists. So many people that swear by the Quran didn't make up their ideology from nothing, they were inspired from their holy book.
