For three years a Danish linguist Tina Magaard analyzed the basic texts of 10 religions. Her conclusion is that the texts of Islam stand out by encouraging terrorism and violence more than other religions.
Now Tina Magaard speaks out again. Translated from Berlingske:
…“What is striking is not in itself that one can find murderous passages in the Islamic texts, as such passages can also be found in other religions. But it is striking how much space these passages takes up in the Islamic texts and how much they focus on a them-and-us-logic where infidels and apostates are characterized as dirty, rotten, criminal, hypocritical and dangerous. It it also striking how much these texts demands the reader to fight the infidels, both with the words and the sword. In many passages Mohammed plays a central role as one who encourages the use of violence, whether it comes to stonings, beheadings, acts of war or execution of critics and poets.”
Tina Magaard finds it particularly objectionable that so many Islamic scholars in her opinion knowingly fails to disclose this fact and use their position of power to create specific standards for what you can say. Often, they also blame Danish racism rather than objectively telling that the justifications for using violence and threats, extremists actually find in Islam’s holy scriptures…
