Stop the training of Jihad

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle
in response to reader comment: Islam and the message

Submitted by Sal (United Kingdom), Oct 5, 2010 at 08:01

Essentially at a young age muslims are trained that violence is the only course to change a peoples or a country towards Islam and to keep pressure. I have had young men brag on about how muslims cannot be stopped because even if you shoot off both legs they will still attack. If Muslims rid the nasty Jihad then I think it could live with other relegions. As well, others have said that Islam is the last and final message - ie: that it is the only true path - and so that encourages muslims to convert everyone as they have been told to do. This might have been okay when there was just Arabia and everyone was an idol worshipper. but not know in a large world with different feels and relegions.

Rid Islam of the rotten core and its actually okay. Sharia can be brutal but I'm sure that can be changed once the Jihad and Dawa elements are also gone.
