Islam IS "realisation" based

Reader comment on item: Vanquishing the Islamist Enemy
in response to reader comment: about religions and war

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Mar 26, 2008 at 01:47

Islam maintains that only efforts on behalf of it's followers will usher in world-wide peace; when 100% of the population is Muslim through efforts on behalf of Islam's followers, "Dar-es-Salaam" - the Islamic House of Peace - will exist. This 100% Muslim utopia will exist through efforts of Islam's followers; through the realisation of their effort.

This is quite different than Judaism or Christianity. Revelation is prominant in both Judaism and Christianity; God will be the one to establish utopia. Neither Judaism or Chrisrianity have EVER maintained the neccessity, nor supported efforts on behalf of believers, towards all humankind retaining the same faith, as pre-requisit for peace, or otherwise. A FEW incidences have occured among "followers"; "followers" who were NOT adhearing to scipture; their efforts were never traced to nor supported by scripture. Attribute their error to their HUMANITY, political climate, greed; NOT to scripture.

This is why "Judaism and Chrisianity have become better", quoting you. There is no scriptural substantiation for the Spanish Inquisition. There IS scriptural substantiation for Islamic totalitarianism.

Islam, and the scripture it's based on, SPECIFICALLY states killing is justified based on dis-belief. The Torah, the Pentateuch, the Bible, NEVER justified this. NEVER.

"Reformation" of Christianity was possible because of close adhearance to scripture. "Reformation" of Islam is impossible due to close adhearance to scripture.

A profound difference.
