Facts About Islam

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?
in response to reader comment: Islam IS violent, not just militant Islam

Submitted by Captain Obvious (United States), Nov 21, 2007 at 02:48

...I would like Muslims to reply to please:

1. The Quran teaches the wholesale slaughter, enslavery, or violent, forced conversion of all non-Mulsims in the world. I have studied the Quran deeply, and this is simply the truth. You cannot argue with this.

2. In almost (not all, but over 90%) of the wars and violent conflicts in the world today, Muslims are involved. If Islam is such a "religion of peace," then how do you explain this?

3. Almost all of the terrorist acts in the modern world have been perpetrated by Muslims. Not all, but most acts.

4. When things like 9/11 and other horrible atrocities are committed by Muslims, the majority of so-called "peaceful and loving" Muslims remain silent. They do not condemn these acts, but tacitly approve of them by their silence.

5. The Middle East, which is 99.99999% Muslim, is one of the, if not the, most violent places in the world.

6. Of all of the regions in the world that have problems with chronic violence, over 80% of them are Muslim areas.

7. There are countless videos on the internet of the brutal beheadings of people by "peaceful, loving" Muslims. Why don't other Muslims condemn this?

8. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims.

9. Muslim leaders all over the world have given their wholesale public approval and encouragement for horrendous acts of violence and savagery against all non-Muslims.

10. Muslim terrorists and murderers have no honor: they do not distinguish between the guilty and the innocent. They gladly murder women, children, and even babies. They are just as happy to blow up a newborn baby as the vilest of men.

How will you Muslims explain this, aside from threatening my life and calling me names?
