Stop defending Islam as a ‘religion of peace’

People need to stop defending Islam. It’s one thing to condemn violence, hate and prejudice against and/or by Muslims, but it’s another thing altogether to claim that Islam is a religion of peace, while at the same time deriding Christians for their backward beliefs.

There are over one hundred verses in the Quran that call for war, specifically against nonbelievers. Some of these verses are quite graphic, such as verse 5:33 which states, “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”

Another verse (8:12) says, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

There is no possible way to take verses like these figuratively or metaphorically. It is quite evident that Allah, according to the Quran, calls quite literally for the mutilation and slaughter of all those who oppose Islam.

      Denial and obfuscation seems rampant over there in the comments. Hey look, Christians are worse (so therefore let’s kill them all).

        That attitude always pisses me off, yes there are some bad Christians, Way back in time there was some evil perpetrated in the name of Christian faiths. They aren’t a patch on what pisslam has done in just the last few decades much less in its history. When I read those kind of comments I cannot reply in any kind of even keeled response, leftist live with blinders on.

  • If events even before the September 11th attacks did not convince anyone that Islamism is for violent retards, nothing will.

        I would not care as long as it did not affect the rest of us, but it does. They are the ones allowing and supporting the invasion of these people.
