• Islam is violent and teaches hate

    I know that a lot of Muslims are not violent, and I acknowledge and admire that, but it does not mean that Islam is peaceful. As I pointed out in the first reply to Mali17's first post, there are numerous violent teachings in the Quran:
    "Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve. Surely ill for them is that which they themselves send on before them: that Allah will be wroth with them and in the doom they will abide (5:80)"

    All infidels will burn in a hell-hole (7:40-41), (7:36), (5:86), etc.

    "Therefore We took retribution from them; therefore We drowned them in the sea: because they denied Our revelations and were heedless of them." (7:136)

    "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" (9:5)

    I will offer more if it is so needed.
    Mohammed was out of the question violent, and history can't be denied. And as I also mentioned, Islam does not literally mean peace, it means submission to God. PEACEFUL submission may be added, but it is translated to refer to God, not people. The reason why Islam is violent is because it was written by a warlord, but it doesn't mean EVERYONE who follows it is violent. Reformation is still possible, but it is undeniable that Islam is violent.

  • The kkk and the nazis were not christian groups nor claim to be

    FOR ONE: its beyond me how some people can be so ignorant and believe that the KKK or the Nazis were Christian groups. In fact the Nazis denounced JESUS and hated Jews and Christians, they devoted their lives to killing Jews and Christians. Just like the Muslim religion does. The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah. "Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 484: - “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

    Muslim (19:4294) - "When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him... He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war... When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them."

    Bukhari 1:35 "The person who participates in (Holy Battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty ( if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise ( if he is killed)."

    Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power." Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad's men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.

    Tabari 9:69 "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us" The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

    How can one believe that the Muslim religion is one of peace, and love after reading just a FEW of the violent and graphic verses from the Quran. True Muslims are out to kill all those who are not of the Muslim faith. Be ware

  • Islam takes Faith more seriously than any other religion, and when reason is not available to men, they resort to force.

    Are you sick and tired of people thinking you're evil just because you treat women like livestock, because you think gays, Jews and atheists should be murdered, because you think a rape victim should be stoned to death, because you oppose individual rights and freedom, and because you think governments around the world should imprison those who speak out against your beliefs?

    Well there's good news!

    You're not a terrorist! Just call yourself a "moderate Muslim" and liberals around the western world will jump at the opportunity to defend you.

  • Of course. Have you read it?

    The Quran has several brutal passages which basically endorse violence against nonbelievers. Why do people not think it does. This is the same book that promotes pedophilia, treating women as property rather then beings, stoning people for nonsensical things and so on. I am not saying all followers of Islam are terrorist but the passages clearly shows that Allah actually wants people to kill nonbelievers. Just cause you don't like reading those parts doesn't mean it doesn't exist in the book.

  • Islam sucks, Yeah.

    Islam may not teach terrorism directly, but it certainly allows and approves as long as it is in the name of Allah. Moderate Islam and Radical Islam are only different in that the Radical will cut your head off and the moderate won't (but they won't denounce the behavior either). Christianity is nothing like Islam other than they are both religions. One is says you can do whatever you want and as long as you believe all is forgiven; the other will kill if you try to leave it.

  • Read the Qu'ran

    There are several passages in the qu'ran specifically telling Muslims to kill all those who oppose their religion. I know for a fact that the qu'ran endorses war, terrorism, and pedophilia.

    Just look at Muhamad's first of many wives, a six year old girl, whom he had sex with when sh was nine. If that doesn't prove that Islam is a religion based on violence and pedophilia, what does.

  • Yes it does. The Islamic doctrine is drenched in blood.

    The Islamic doctrine is drenched in blood, misogyny and hatred. Here are verses from the Quran that proves this. Also, note that the majority of terror groups are Islamic, and that worldwide, 99% of terrorism has been by Muslims so far in 2015.

    1.Quran (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."

    2. Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

    3. Quran (47:3-4) - "Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)... If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost."

    4. Qur'an 65:4. "And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women - if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him of his matter ease."

    5.Qur'an 24:4 " And those who accuse chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses - lash them with eighty lashes and do not accept from them testimony ever after. And those are the defiantly disobedient," (if you accuse someone of rape without 4 witnesses then you are sentenced to 80 lashes.)

    6. Qur'an 9:5 (kill those who don't submit to islam) 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.

    Islam is a very barbaric religion and I'm not saying ALL Muslims are terrorist but most terrorists are Muslim because they follow the Quran very closely. If you were to follow the Quran and not cherry pick it like moderate Muslims do you would be a terrorist. Islam teaches terrorism and breeds it.

  • Every religion does.

    Terrorism is defined as using fear for the purposes of coercion. Every religion uses a God of some sort to coerce the congregation for fear of post-death consequences into doing something. SO in that regard....Yes.

    Many parts of the Qur'an are actually incorrectly quoted and pulled out of context, when in truth, the Qur'an is a pretty violent book, showing absolutely no tolerance for the unbelievers. Check out this video.


  • Yes it does.

    As a former Muslim who lives in a Muslim society, I believe that you can find out the root of violent and jihad in Quran. Why do some Muslims kill everyone by the name of the God? And why do atheists not kill anyone? I think the answer is obvious.

  • Islam Means Peace

    Many people believe that Islam is the driving factor behind all terrorist acts. But in reality they could not have been more wrong. The word Islam itself means peace. How can a religion that is named after peace be the cause for so much violence? The Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) used to be ridiculed and harassed because of his teachings. Not once did he raise his hand against the people who hurt him. There is a very famous story about a women who used to throw garbage on the prophet every time he walked past her house. One day she was not there to throw garbage on him so the prophet (PBUH) was actually worried! He ran to her house to check if she was okay and saw that she was very sick so he took care of her. After he nursed her back to health the woman asked him why he helped her and he simply answered by saying "Because I want to". How can a man who was so selfless teach his people to harm and hate? All Muslims stand together against the horrible recent attacks and pray for the well-being of the families of the diseased and the injured. We DO NOT advocate such violence. Islam is a religion of love and peace and as Muslims we are obligated to portray that image.

  • Islam, Christianity, and Judaism all have hateful scriptures.

    Singling out Islam and picking out hateful passages from it's scripture is pointless, as the same can be done for all religions, save for the few that preach legitimate pacifism such as Buddhism. It's simply in the interest of the first world governments to belittle and build hate for Islam.

  • If Islam teach terrorism other religion will dead

    Islam didn't teach terrorism to humans. If Islam teach terrorism,all muslim will like to kill people continuously. If real muslim learn al-Quran and as-sunnah properly,he will never do bad things. Some muslim nowadays just take the name of'Islam' but didn't obey to Islam rules even the compulsory one such as praying 5 times everyday etc. Overall, i just want to say islam not teach terrorism to human.

  • Islam does not teach terrorism.

    No religion teaches terrorism as all of them follow the golden rule. The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a moral maxim or principle which may appear as either a positive or negative injunction: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself (positive or directive form). However, there are many verses provided in the scriptures that can be taken out of context and projected into their followers. In Quran like any other scriptures there are many context sensitive verses and they are misinterpreted and misinformed to the Muslims. The meaning of the word Islam is peace and from this we can know that the intention of Islam is pure. Just because some misinformed persons carry out terror attacks we can not hold Islam as whole to be responsible.

  • Stop stereotyping Islam and Muslims

    I'd like to start off by asking, why are people stereotyping muslims? Just because terrorist groups and ISIS are claiming to follow Islam that doesn't mean 1) They are actually muslims and 2) all muslims are like that. It is actually very ignorant of anyone to think like that. That's basically like saying 'all black people are dangerous' - that is both racist and stereotyping. Saying Islam teaches terrorism and all muslims are terrorists/dangerous/violent is just ridiculous. That is not a fact it is simply an opinion, which I believe is incorrect. You simply cannot make assumptions about another religion because of extremists who are claiming to be part of that religion.

    There are 1.6 billion muslims in the world. Just because minority are extremists that does not mean every single one of the muslims are like that.

    There are parts about going into a battle with non-believers, but it actually says to only go into war with them if they offend Islam. Otherwise, no violence is required. Also, please stop ignoring all the other parts of the Quran that actually teach muslims non-violence too.

    "Humanity is but s single brotherhood: So make peace with your brethren" The Quran 49:10

    "If anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - It would be as of he killed all humankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved all of humankind" The Quran 5:32

  • No, every religious group has this

    KKK practices terrorism, do they represent all protestants?
    The Jewish Defense League commits regular acts of violence against Arabs, Palestinian Solidarity Activists, and others they disagree with, do they represent all jews?
    The 969 Movement in Burma kills muslims and wants all muslims to die. Do they represent all Buddhists?
    NO! They are all politically motivated, not religiously. Religion is just a way to mask their bigotry.

  • Its politics not religion

    KKK practices terrorism, do they represent all protestants?
    The Jewish Defense League commits regular acts of violence against Arabs, Palestinian Solidarity Activists, and others they disagree with, do they represent all jews?
    The 969 Movement in Burma kills muslims and wants all muslims to die. Do they represent all Buddhists?
    NO! They are all politically motivated, not religiously. Religion is just a way to mask their bigotry.

  • Not The Teachings.

    The teachings of Islam actually promote peace, the Koran says nothing of hateful nor violent acts. And why Islam is being singled out as a violent religion for the radical Islamist groups committing violent acts, but yet Christians aren't for groups like the KKK, or even the Nazis, is beyond me. Society needs to just stop rejecting Islamic people, in my honest opinion.

  • Terrorists contradict the Quran.

    Suicide bombers contradict the prohibition of suicide, mass shooters contradict the principal of the presentation of a peaceful resolution as well as the many many instances in which harming of the innocent was recited as completely wrong and forbidden.

    Those terrorists that supposedly "followed" the words of God are actually going to hell for their crimes against humanity and disobedience of God.

  • No its not based on terrorism..

    Go read the Quran people it explains that killing people is not supported at all along with other things. You can't just pick through and choose quotes that support why it is bad You need to read through to understand the text. We should support them not say their not American or terrorists because of the way they dress.

Amazing. Over half the people on this site are clueless idiots. Here is the truth about Islam, if you have the courage to face it. You cannot understand Islam without understanding the story of Mohammad. This book should be read by every American, especially our elected officials. If they had read it, we would be winning the war on terror.
