Of Course Islam Is Violent.

Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem
in response to reader comment: Islam, not a violent religion?

Submitted by Sunil Misra (United States), Nov 30, 2006 at 11:15

What nonsense that Islam means peace; it means submission. For one thousand years Islam destroyed all Hindu structures in India and recently did so with the Buddha statues in Bamayan. For one thousand years, these predatory looters murdered millions and forced conversion, according to their own court historians.

Max Weber, in The Religions of India, or Joseph Campbell, or Wells and any number of other historians with no axe to grind have pointed out the monstrous brutality of this second rate religion. Why is it second rate? As Socrates says, violence negates reason, and therefore any belief system that employs violence, from whipping to killing, whose so-called prophet himself killed (one idiotic justification was that he only did that in his capacity as head of state) is second-rate, really, irrational. Only some religions are nonviolent, Buddhism and Christianity (without the Old Testament). Muslims have killed without mercy since their founding. They made it a practice to denegrate other religions by building upon Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and other sites (see, for example, what Aurangzeb's court historian says about why the most sacred temple at Varanasi was destroyed, one gate left, and a mud mosque built on the other side, as a reminder that the most common of mosques is greater than the greatest of Hindu temples).

Hence, these barbarians built upon Solomon's temple and upon Christian sites. They do not believe in any concept of nonviolence. Christ forgives the prostitute, Mohammed stones her. Islam also spread slavery all over Africa and exported slaves with little conscience. They cry about 12 Crusades that lasted about one century, and have brutalized entire populations for hundreds and even a thousand years. How about an apology? No, repentence and forgiveness are not cardinal virtues in Islam unless accompanied by punishment. What can be said of a religion whose men fear lusting, so drape their women in burquas, but assume women have no lusts, so the men walk about seen?

I wait for the day Islamic lands are conquered with the same fury they exercised upon others, for example the utter destruction of the rock in Mecca as they destroyed places of worship elsewhere, but, then again, I am a Christian and revenge, though I wish for it, I know is wrong. Mohammed was violent, Islam is violent, Muslims love violence and glorify it (see Ali and how they wish they were there to defend him when he was killed by fellow Muslims). I wait for evangelism to convert the irrational ones.
