Twisted truths and ignored facts ...

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey's Government Starting a Muslim Reformation?
in response to reader comment: What kind of Jihad were the Barbaric Muslim Raiders carrying out when they ravaged Hindustan for centuries?

O.k... 1st of all, the term Jihad does not mean "Holy War". The literal meaning of the term "jihad" means to struggle or survive against violence. It was a term first coined when barbaric Christians were waging their holy wars against the rest of the world. Holy War is a Christian thing, not Muslim or Islamic thing. But the Christians of modern day have found a way to twist facts in order to make their case. It's pathetic and disgusting how people could be so ignorant of historical facts.

Historical facts have been twisted and changed so much that the truth may never again be known, but it is a truth that history itself supports facts that could point to Jesus actually being a Muslim. Of course pride and ego won't let people believe it, but the bible too supports it. His everyday greetings and partings of "Peace be unto you and Peace upon you", translated in Arabic "As-salamu alaykum" is the standard greeting for Muslims. The mentioning of Jesus praying on his face is also another factor. A man with hair like wool and feet like bronze, who speaks Aramaic. All these things have been deliberately forgotten, ignored and changed.

Let us not forget the worst atrocities ever committed on this planet were by Christians. The Crusades and Inquisitions alone hold the record for most killed, closely followed by the invasion of America, and the attempted genocide of Natives. All in the name of God and Religion. And so now we have the kettles calling the pots fanatics and extremists.

All of these problems are caused by Religion, and the Religious people are the problem. Religion is not something needed for good, only bad. It's an excuse to hate, fight and separates people from truth, others, and themselves. It's used for power, greed, corruption and war.

The truth is that 75% of the worlds problems would be solved without it, and anyone who disagrees is not being honest with themselves.

Regardless of anyone's feelings or beliefs, the truth will always be the truth.
