Statistical Islam

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Islam is Certainly Peaceful.

Submitted by Amina Aleem (United States), Jun 3, 2007 at 08:10

It is estimated that there are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world.

Only 10% (120 million)* of Muslims actually read and meditate on their Koran, (because high illiteracy in Islamic nations).

A study show that 13% of Muslims in America approve of suicide bombing, and 26% believe some form of violence can be justified by the Koran. (Source: NY Times 5/17/07)

Globally, this means there are about 15 to 30 million of Islamic radicals who don't mind blowing up themselves in order to destroy others, especially those who oppose islam.

Koran 9:5 - Destroy the non-Muslims everywhere, arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere.

Koran 5:51 - Do not take the Jews and Christians as friends.

When I said these verses are very easy to understand and show that Islam teaches segregation and terrorism, a lot of Muslims attacked me, and told me I'm misinterpreting the Koran. Well, I'll not argue with you, but I can assure you, so long as Muslims read these verses, there will always be millions of Muslims around the world who will take the simple message of the above "scriptures" and support and promote terrorism.

Observation: Almost all known terrorist are devout Muslims.

Prediction: Muslims will carry out the next terrorist attack you hear of.

Conclusion: Muslims + Koran = moderates Muslims + Terrorists

What do you think? Let us have an objective discussion.
