1- Here is why the modern Islam is not a religion but a cult: You can depart from Christianity without being targeted to be killed. Once a person departs from Islam and denies Mohammed, his or her blood becomes necessary to shed according the current Islamic rules. Have you heard about "Salmon Rushdie"?

2- It is the religions duty of the modern Muslims to kill anyone who departs and/or questions the validity of Islam. You can get into or born into Islam but you can't get out. That is the definition of cultism.

3- Quran has two sets of verses; Meccaian and Medinian; specifying the location in which the verses were created; Mecca and Medina.

Mohammad was in a weak position while in Medina; therefore all Medinian verses are humanitarian, talking of piece, equality and respect. The Medinian verses emphasize equality between Christians, Jews and Muslims.

The nature of Quranic verses changes as soon as Mohammed invades Mecca, destroys other gods (Elaha) and sets his god "black stone" as the sole god or God of Gods (Allah). The verses such as "Kill in the name of Allah" (Qatala fi sabil allah) become the core operational ideology of Islam in Mecca and afterwards. (as the story says)

Modern Muslims follow the same structure today; they talk of piece as long as they are in weak position, but as soon as they get a chance they blowup buildings, massacre nations and ……. we see them in the news everyday.

However, I am thankful of your comments. However I have to emphasise that you followed the standard Islamic indoctrination rules: you immediately assume that anyone who disagrees with your view is "ignorant" and knows nothing and you are certain about it. You are indoctrinated to close your ears and eyes. I have talked to many Muslims in many countries; that approach is the most common characteristics of the Muslims today. Anyone who does not agree with them is labeled ignorant and enemy of Allah!

Let me add one more thing; Modern Islam is not the true Islam.

The true Islam was defeated around 13th to 15th century. Many great philosophers in that time stood up against powerful Khalifas and lost; that was perhaps the only period that some type of Islamic Renaissance was attempted.

Great figures such as Ibn Khaldon, Attar and Rumi where sidelined and or even murdered. Ibn Khaldon's "An al haqq" still echoes in the ears of true Muslims after centuries. Rumi questioned the mandated pilgrimage to Mecca. He had found God within us and asked "why do you wander in Sahara to find what you haven't lost, your beloved "God" is your next door neighbor"

The current Islam that you subscribe to it is a creation of political figures around 16th to 18th Century; the fictional history of Islam is just pure fiction. The modern Islam and its fictional history it is formed and evolved as an unquestionable cult justifying the rule of elite.

The current war is NOT between Muslims and Christians and Jews, it is actually revival of a new generation of thinkers, a revolutionary youth who, tooling internet and mass media, dares to ask "why?" And question all illogical and meaningless man made rules in the name of Allah. They question the fictional history, the rules that makes no sense and are often contradictory.

This young generation, one at a time, finding out that the verses of Quran has changed, the meaning of the words has twisted and most primary concepts are pushed aside. As example; Jihad never meant "holly war", it means "hard work". Muslims were invited to work harder not wage war.

The rise of young generations, certainly, scares the hell out of the current Islamic rulers whose ideological based power is in the verge of collapse. The elite clergy are unable to indoctrinate youth as fast as they get access to internet and satellite TVs. They cut off internet, ban satellite TVs and make it crime to ask any question.

They made boogieman out of the western democracy in order to save their own behind. Freedom of asking "why" and asking questions is the most dangerous phenomenon collapsing their power.

According to true Islamic concepts, the current Islamic leaders are the most horrendous sinners of all times.

The day that you will throw away Quran and begin questioning the most common Islamic concepts, will be your day of salvation. Just be wary of cultists.

Dare to question everything.
