Despite what you may believe based on QPolitical’s content, I’m actually very open-minded when it comes to religions of all diversities.
I have no problem being tolerant of religious beliefs that challenge my own. However, I DO have a problem with a religion that condones violence.
Islam is often referred to as “the religion of peace.” Yet the Quran contains over 109 verses that encourage Muslims to declare war on non-believers for the spread of Islam.
Some of the verses are disturbingly graphic with commands to chop off heads and fingers, and kill “infidels” wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not participate in the fight are considered “hypocrites” and threatened that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the massacre.
Sure, there’s violent verses in the Old Testament – which is why it’s called the OLD Testament. The violence in those verses are corrected in the New Testament. The Quran’s verses of violence are the eternal, unchanging word of Allah. It’s a religion based on justifying violence.
According to theology experts, “Violence is so ingrained in Islam that it has never really stopped being at war, either with other religions or with itself. Muhammad was a military leader, laying siege to towns, massacring the men, raping their women, enslaving their children, and taking the property of others as his own. On several occasions he rejected offers of surrender from the besieged inhabitants and even butchered captives. He inspired his followers to battle when they did not feel it was right to fight, promising them slaves and booty if they did and threatening them with Hell if they did not. Muhammad allowed his men to rape traumatized women captured in battle, usually on the very day their husbands and family members were slaughtered.”
The most dangerous part about the Quran’s verses of violence is the divine command attached to them. Take a look at some of the Quran’s violent verses to understand for yourself the sick truth about this evil religion:
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.”
Quran (5:33) – “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.”
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”
The brutal reality of Islam is a hard pill for many Muslims to swallow.
Theology experts further explained that “Muslims are either unaware or willfully ignorant of the Quran’s near absence of verses that preach universal non-violence. Their understanding of Islam comes from what they are taught by others. In the West, it is typical for believers to think that their religion must be like Christianity – preaching the New Testament virtues of peace, love, and tolerance – because Muslims are taught that Islam is supposed to be superior in every way. They are somewhat surprised and embarrassed to find that this is contradicted by the Quran and the bloody history of Islam’s genesis. Others simply accept the violence.”
