Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Did I ever say that Islam Was NOT spread by conquests? This is about Faith, not Politcs/History.

"..Are they motivated from the Quran? No. They are motivated by greed and by hopelessness from being disposessed -- .."

...any problems brought out, happily blame it on 'those' muslims. islam is absolved. keep playing this tune, while 'those' muslims keep laying their murder dance, until you all gain total control!!!

so you mean to say that the arab bandits who attacked Persia and killed Zoroastrian priests shouting Allah o Akbar were not motivated by Quran!! they were certainly not hopeless. and if they were greedy, they would loot the treasure n probably take away some women and go away. they wouldnt wipe out Zoroastrianism and kill priests and destroy temples.. dude, they were not an army of Alexander. they were religious zealots. motivated by quran n mohammad. and mohammad himself did similar things. none of the arabian or jewish tribes in his time wanted his nonsense. it was he who started all that. not God!

and let me tell you how in certain parts of the world, what have the stories of some other people who are also regarded as prophets been like. Mahavir Jain, founded Jainism. Gautam Buddh founded Buddhism. GuruNanak founded Skihism. now how many wars did they had to fight? none. becoz they were really speaking sense. unlike an arab bandit. if you think God's message requires an army and killing, then that is a pretty sorry god. and that's the case with allah. i know more than you about the historical context of quran. it was mohammad who started the wars. its just lucky he won. that does not make him right. of course you may 'believe' otherwise. you're the 'believer'. we are fine being the infidels.

muslims might not have ONLY brought havoc, but their negatives far far outweight their positives. i dont think you know anything about Indian subcontinent history. u have grown up cheering muslim murderers. buddhism n hinduism were wiped out from roughly half of the land. and milllions murdered. in the name of religion of peace!

and stop whining about muslims having been dispossesed. if there is any people who have been dispossesed in the near past areJews and other people from war theatre of Europe, and ppl who were under European colonization. Middle east and the so called 'islamic' nations did not suffer from this. muslims are to be blamed along with islam and no one else. in 200 yrs of british colonization, indians never felt the need of crying allahoakbar and crashing airplanes, and exploding in cafetarias like ur dear friends, for whom you guys cheer secretly in front of your TV sets. your book gives you a license to do all this, and a promise to get virgins!!!

...to me quran lacks any theological, philosophical or spiritual foundation. and rightly so. coz arabs as a ppl never achieved any cultural or intellectual sophistication. nd that same trash is lingering on! weird rules of punishment, and abominable violence n suppression on women. n this in a book given directly by God itself!

... i dont like communism. its stupid and has serious flaws in its assumptions of social behavior. i dont like racism. its insulting. i hate nazism. its evil. and i hate islam. its a deadly curse.
