I will be arguing that Islam is not a religion of peace and supports violence. First round acceptance, second round arguments, third round rebuttals, fourth round final word.

I would like to thank my opponent for setting up this debate. I'll be playing devil's advocate. Good luck.

Good luck to you as well. Many say that Islam is a religion of peace. This is not true. Their prophet Muhammad, said that they should attack infidels (surah 9:29) and he also assumes that the jews and christians are working as one against them (Al-Ma'idah Chapter 5:52), and that if they do befriend a jew or christian that you are no longer a muslim, and are now an infidel.

Muhammad is also sexist, and believes in beating your wife when she does not obey you (surah an-nisa 4:34). Some say it means lightly, with a rag, but lightly with a rag doesn't make your skin greener than your own clothes (sahih al bukhari 5825).

Islam is a religion of peace, let's look at the word Islam in Arabic it means to surrender or submit, it is derived from the root word Salaam meaning peace or safety. Some people Implie that it means enslavement to God in Arabic Allah.

There are many religions that believe in surrender to God including the Jewish faith, but this misconception that Islam is violent is no to do with its passages of scripture, the bibles many violent passages but more to do with the current climate we live in.

You don't know your bible very well, Jesus Christ himself is depicted in the New Testament as being very violent during his Second Coming. to me it is evident that the Bible is just a collection of scriptures that reflect the barbaric beliefs of ignorant and immoral men whom lived a long time ago and not a Revelation from any god, but just for the sake of the argument, the god of the Bible as he is described in that book must be the most bloodthirsty egomaniac tyrant ever imagined by the (disturbed) human mind.
I must point out the following: Christians see Jesus as God. That means that he was also the God of the Old Testament. The same God who commanded all those killings and the author of all those violent and disgusting commands . So the violence Jesus supports and predicts is not only evident in the New Testament, but he is supposedly also the author of said violent commands in the Old testament as well. Not only then is the Old Testament "an expression of the will of Christ""it is Christ.]
Matthew 5:17 -5:18 -5:19 and luke -16:17

and the majority of violence in the old testament is recorded as history; a description of events. Conversely, the overwhelming majority of violence in the Quran is doctrinally significant. The Quran uses open-ended language to call on believers to commit acts of violence against non-Muslims."

The proof is in the bible and Quran, and the bible is more violent then the Quran.

So I guess that both religions are violent, just look at their history.

If Islam is a religion of violence, so is Christianity.

Well people are violent because of ideas. Especially if the ideas are violent in the first place. Islam in it self is violent. The US probably killed more nazis then the nazis killed judes.

Religions are ideas, and ideas are not violent. Violence is an action carried out by people. And the most violent people seem to be Americans and they come from a Christian nation. America has been at war for 222 of its 239 years, America has half the population of the other 22 nations combined, the United States accounted for 82 percent of all gun deaths. The United States also accounted for 90 percent of all women killed by guns, the study found. Ninety-one percent of children under 14 who died by gun violence were in the United States.
