But ISIS Kills More Muslims Than Non-Muslims!

With the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL, or IS), an old apologia meant to exonerate Islam of violence has become prominent, again. Because ISIS is killing other Muslims, so the argument goes, obviously, its violence cannot be based on Islam, which bans Muslims from killing fellow Muslims in its name.

    Well, to adapt Stephen Stills, “Kill the one you’re with.”

    ISIS ran out of Christians and pagans a while ago. Now they have Shi’ites and non-conforming Muslims. Plenty of targets.

    This phenomenon is more than just ISIS. It’s across the board in the umma.

    The koran is the go-to book for justification of killing anybody.
