Islam is the only religion which suffers so much from extremism. It has little to do with lack of education or poverty. There are countless terrorists that are educated and hail from middle class familes. Bin laden was a f***ing multimillionaire. Islam preaches killing of kafirs ie non believers and even, Muslims who convert to other religions are to be stoned according to Islamic fundamentalists. Jihad is supported by Quran. Also, Over 76% of Muslims in the middle east believe that sharia law should be land of the law which promotes death to non Muslims. The support for sharia law among Muslims in the US is 26% and 39% in European union which are super high. Muslims hate non Muslims, Atleast most do which means they Islam begins terrorism. There are millions of Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Etc under poverty line in most of the world, Why do they not have similar problems of extremism compared to the rate of Muslims.
Islam IS actively promoting terrorism and is a dangerous ideology. Denying this simple fact proves how dumb much of the europe is. Most people that oppose my argument can never come with facts and statistics to make a point, Just anecdotes that don't prove shit. The choice is yours-deny the ideology that has led to 700 million deaths across the globe in its lifespan(more than death caused by nazism and communism) or keep acting like its good shii
After the existing treaties have expired Muslims are to make no more treaties with pagans and they are to subdue or kill those who do not accept Islam.
Freedom from obligation (is proclaimed) from Allah and His messenger toward those of the idolaters with whom ye made a treaty.
Travel freely in the land four months, and know that ye cannot escape Allah and that Allah will confound the disbelievers (in His Guidance).
And an announcement from Allah and His Messenger, to the people (assembled) on the day of the Great Pilgrimage,- that Allah and His Messenger dissolve (treaty) obligations with the Pagans. If then, ye repent, it were best for you; but if ye turn away, know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah. And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith.
Excepting those of the idolaters with whom ye (Muslims) have a treaty, and who have since abated nothing of your right nor have supported anyone against you. (As for these), fulfil their treaty to them till their term. Lo! Allah loveth those who keep their duty (unto Him).
Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Islam promotes terrorism by way of some of it's most powerful leadership.... Who advocate, plan, finance and implement acts of terrorism via the faithful. This is proven by recorded messages in
most types of media. Regardless of another's interpretation of the Qur'an. Islam makes no provision for punishing errant leadership.
Thows who claim that Islam is not the problem. And that its just a handful of extremists have never read the Koran. The truth is, these extremists have the correct interpretation of that book, and the correct interpretation of Islam. Anyone who refuses to at least read the damn thing, and consider that I may be right is simply hidding their head in the sand, hoping to avoid ww3 in our time. I don't know where these folks got the idea that anyone can get threw life without confronting your enemies, but that is obviously not reality. The only way to prevent future terrorist attacks in our nations is to outlaw Islam. It is not a religion, it is a dangerous cult. Once your "religion" starts killing innocents and forcing converts, its no longer a religion, but a cult. And don't talk to me about the middle ages. That was NOT Christianity burning people, it was catholisism. The Christian s were their victims. The catholic cult does NOT represent Christianity, and it never did.
Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing...
But if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)" (Translation is from the Noble Quran) The verse prior to this (190) refers to "fighting for the cause of Allah those who fight you" leading some to believe that the entire passage refers to a defensive war in which Muslims are defending their homes and families. The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, however, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). Verse 190 thus means to fight those who offer resistance to Allah's rule (ie. Muslim conquest). The use of the word "persecution" by some Muslim translators is disingenuous (the actual Arabic words for persecution - "idtihad" - and oppression - a variation of "z-l-m" - do not appear in the verse). The word used instead, "fitna", can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. This is certainly what is meant in this context since the violence is explicitly commissioned "until religion is for Allah" - ie. Unbelievers desist in their unbelief.
Quran asks to kill people those who dont believe in allah deliberately in the second part of the book .Everyone knows it.You can check it if you want.People claim that its a defensive war but the are many verses in quran that promotes pure violence .We all agree that quran's first part contains peace keeping messages but quran itself asks us to overrule the first part with the second part if they violate each other and the second part asks to show no mercy. This is not defensive wars. Every other religion promotes peace . And by the way i am an atheist .I just dont want my fellow brothers and sisters to fight each other. And muslims dont call quran a peace teaching book please dont. Sadly its not.
Quran is trying to spread to fake peace prophecies by hiding its ultimate violence. Its like if you hide many lies within truths the lies will also be accepted as truth.

There is nothing to debate , when the islamic non abrogated verses specify explicitly over and over again to kill the infidel then there is no question , it cant be properly debated, it is not a debatable topic .
A debateable topic requires no definitive proof one way or the other , this is not debateable
Read the many verses of the Koran that support violence towards non-believers. Such verses that talk about beheading and cutting off hands and feet. Also you will find many verses compelling violence in the hadiths composed by al-Bukhari, the most canonical of all the hadith collections. This why there will always be "radical" Islam and probably why ISIS is constantly growing. There is probably nothing worse than the moderate man for he neither for or against something. If you truly love something than you are willing to fight for it and unfortunately the fighting referred to in much the Muslim literature if geared towards violence.
No idea what kind of a moron would actually think of asking such a stupid and silly question. Of course no. Without being preachy:
a) There are extremists who bring dishonor to Islam, just as there are extremists who can be thought to bring dishonor to Christianity, to the white community, to a nationality such as US, the UK etc... Only we don't give it that colour. If we think along similar lines, I think all Europeans are worthy of being branded anti-semitic (because Hitler, duh).
B) Jihad refers to a spiritual conflict, striving for righteousness rather than military action.
C) Islam lays down codes of honor for militaries and battle, and clearly these "Islamic" terrorists violate them on multiple levels.
Killing yourself is big sin and killing other unrelated bystander surely also sin, You need to real whole passage to understand the Quran only give defensive Violence as an answer. Never in Quran passage come as invader.
If someone came and try to kill you will you just stand and die? Or fight back?
Many point out that the Quran is a violent text which calls on Muslims to attack “unbelievers”.
2:190 Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.
2;191And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
2:191 And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
2:193 Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.
This is clearly just defensive act, it also have ceasefire in it.
But most accuser fail to see that , if you cherry pick all of them and displaying one by one of course it will seems like killing is endorse but if you read whole passage it's clearly "a defense against attack".
How about other religion? Here simple passage from Bible,
the Book of 1 Samuel, when God instructs King Saul to attack the Amalekites: “And utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them,” God says through the prophet Samuel. “But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”
this is genocide, total annihilation. It's explicit even though you read whole passage it's still offensive/invasive no matter how you twist it.
So comparatively Quran still reasonable than Bible.
Unfortunately more and more often, Islam has been associated with terrorism and violence due to the actions of a few extreme individuals who’ve taken it upon themselves to do the most heinous crimes in the name of Islam.
Tragic events such as the attack on the twin towers in New York, the bombings of Bali, Madrid and London are assumed to be justified by Islam in the minds of some people. This idea has been fueled further by many media channels which defame Islam by portraying these bombers as ‘Islamists’ or ‘Jihadists’, as though they were sanctioned by Islam, or had any legitimate spokemenship on behalf of Muslims. The actions of a few fanatical individuals who happen to have Muslim names or ascribe themselves to the Muslim faith should not be a yardstick by which Islam is judged. For the same reason, that one would not do justice to Christianity if it where perceived as sanctioning the genocide of the Native Americans, the atrocities of world war II or the bombings of the IRA.
To understand Islam’s stance on terrorism, one must refer to its original sources, the Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,which are explicit in their prohibition of any form of injustice including that of wanton violence which seeks to instill fear, injury or death to civilians.
The Quran turns our attention to the high value of human life, whether it is Muslim or Non-Muslim and makes it absolutely forbidden to take an innocent life unjustly. The gravity of such a crime is equated, in the Quran, with the killing of all humanity.
“On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.” ( 5:32 )
Not only is human life sacred in Islam but the property, wealth, family and dignity of all individuals in society are to be respected and protected. Those who transgress these rights and sow fasad (corruption) as the Quran describes it, incur the wrath of Allah.
"…and seek not corruption in the earth; lo! Allah loveth not corrupters " (28:77)
Islam goes further than just prohibiting oppression and safeguarding rights, it commands its faithful to deal kindly and compassionately to all those who seek to live in peace and harmony
"Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for your faith, nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: For Allah loves those who are just" (60:8)
Islam doesn't support violence if anything it tells us to stay away from it and just bring me a part from the Quran that commands to kill... And it doesn't tell us to cut hands or feet, that is a man made rule in the old days where technology didn't exist. So please stop accusing Islam for violence .
No we don't support Isis cause they also attacked Islamic areas too .
Islam totally does not promote terrorism. Terrorism is about murder. As we know murder is forbidden in Islam and every action for a Muslim must be based on the Quran . As mention in Qur’an 6:151 “do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” For example is death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted. So from that we can determine terrorizing is the enemy in fact part of Islam. Islam means peace and promote harmonize. Not only between muslim but also with other religious.
For just a moment, think of the refugees and where are they coming from? Why are most countries welcoming them?
Because they are innocent people displaced from their countries, who have faced their families dying in front of them and many other reasons. Their families are dead because of "MODERN, ANTI-TERRORIST" countries like America, France, Russia. A group of terrorists killed people in hundreds, in return these countries offered revenge in thousands, that too with citizens of the terrorist's country not the terrorist himself.
Mass murder of innocent lives (kids, women, old people) is what I call terrorism. And without a doubt the first world countries have proved it, that they are better at terrorism as well.
. Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.E. Murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted). 5:53 says, “… whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.”
However, Islam is a very puritanical and orthodox religion (depending on the branch). They are very unaccepting of other people in Islam, sometimes to the point of being killed. Also one of the most Islamic countries in the world is an absolute monarchy. However, Islam, much like Protestantism, has had a history of terrorist groups (Al-Qeida and the KKK, respectively).
50000 Muslims were polled from 35 different Muslim countries
93 percent rejected the 9\11 attacks
7 percent that supported 9/11 stated purely political reasons (American foreign policy, Arab dictators sponsored by US and Palestinian persecution)
Islam is a Religion of rationally responding to circumstances: if the situation demands war then that is imperative but if peace is a genuine way then war is not permitted. The intention is social harmony. Islam never started any war but was forced into it and provoked by enemy. Modern unrest has everything to do with political rivalries and very little connection to Islam and absolutely no connection to authentic teachings. Even in the current demographic state of ignorance, the overwhelming majority of Muslims absolutely reject terrorism exactly in the same way any westerner would. See top refrences
I think it is wrong for some one to stereotype a whole entire religion on the acts of groups that are not even honorably accepted by the stereotyped entity. I do not believe any religion promotes killing innocent people like terrorists are known to do and terrorists alone are responsible for their actions.
