Bro. Sultan, You asked a question " are millions of muslims retarded to believe in a religion full of violence and hatred". That is what non muslims wonder all the time.

The bitter truth is that they are kept ignorant of the facts by the religious heirarchy because their livelihood depends on muslim's faith. Please read some of the sahih hadiths and quranic ayas quoted by muslim writers on this post, tell me had you ever heard any mullah quote them in a sermon? Never. They always quote the few good ones from Mecca, and avoid all violent ones from Madina.

The fact is that quran remained untranslated until 19th century. Regarding prophet's life, only selected sanitized hadiths were even translated until 1980's. The only original authentic siras (prophet's biography) Ishaq, and Tabari were translated by Oxford University and State University of New york in late 20 th century. Translation of Tabari was completed in 1990's.Muslim majority know what the apologist muslim heirarchy write in sanitized sugarcoated books.How many muslims own full sets of sahih hadiths, Tabari and Ishaq ? Almost none except the scholars. No knowlegable mullah will be stupid to quote the violent partsT and risk his own job. On the contrary if some one quotes the violent ayas or hadiths they try their best to give him a run around with:

-that is out of context
-arabic cannot be translated correctly
-that hadith was spread by jews
The religious heirarchy, mullahs and apologista like CAIR etc. hide the violent ayas and hadiths to keep the gravy train running and to keep muslim masses coming to mosques, and continue financial support and donations. Saudi Arabia also supports them to keep the masses coming for Haj and Umra..

However the violent groups like Bin Laden, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Lashkar Mohammedi, exploit the very same violent ayas and hadiths to covince their jihadis to kill infidels, shias and apostates etc.

Submitting....
