in response to reader comment: RESPECT

I'm sorry but I do know the Quran, and the Hadith, as well as also having studied the text and traditions of three of the four monotheistic religions; the others being Judaism and Islam. Based on these studies over my life, I can assure you that the Quran does call for the killing of those who insult, leave, or in any way are deemed a threat to Islam. This all began during the time of Muhammad himself, who had two poets one of them "120" killed for mocking him. It like wise uses force for conversion, as well as death for that apostate. This can be verified by the actions of Abu Bakr, the first Caliph, after the death of Muhammad during the war of apostasy.

Islam has never been a religion of peace, from the beginning it expanded through conquest and the fear of death. Bill Maher is correct in stating that Islam is a violent religion.
