If you would like to learn about Islam, please read the Quran rather than making false claims. The section that you quoted is NOT true. I would suggest you pick up a copy of the Quran and read it before making such statements. Islam does not promote violence. Just because there are extremists in this religion who are using it for their sole purpose or agenda does not mean the Islam is a bad religion. Muslims believe in Jesus and Moses just like Christians; we have more things alike than different. Let's join forces against evil and terrorism rather than point fingers and blame each other.
