Islam and its claims

Reader comment on item: The Left Distorts Breivik's Mental World

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Jul 24, 2012 at 11:02

Dr. Pipes,

This is a case of reversing cause for effect. The Greek philosophers long time ago told us that "claims invite scrutiny" or if we read that "islam is the religion of peace" then we must examine this claim and examine the evidence and reach our own conclusions

The great Greek mind and skepticism and the "where is the evidence" is indeed the foundation of this great Western civilization and if we are told by liberals and left wingers that because Breivik cited these sources then these sources must be blamed for this mass killing by him is a bogus

Islam has many claims that should be examined and this is what these authors be it Muslim or not Muslims do so if a Muslim tells me that Muhammad was insan kamil or the perfect man then I would like to see the evidence and if this can be proven to be a bogus claim then the author of such claim will be told that his claim is bogus

So where would the author draw the line of what is really proper examination of a claim and writings and responses that might be even be criminal? If the author tells his readers to go out and kill or fight or kill and be killed (as the Qur'an does in Q9:4 and 9:29 and 9:111) then the author should be held as vicariously liable for any crime that can be linked to his writings and teachings and I have never read anything in this blog that is even remote to fight or kill Muslims or even deport them

Now the real question is would the lovers of islam get it?
