Contra Islam

Reader comment on item: The Islamic States of America?
in response to reader comment: Islam is the Solution of all problems of America and World

The Koran was not codified into a book at the time of Muhammed's death. One would think that revelations from God would be preserved instantly but that was not the case. Instead, many decades after Muhammed's death another man, an Uthman, supposedly gathered "experts" and then this group decided on the contents of the Koran. Surprisingly, the separate "holy" fragments, and to my knowledge all of those fragments, were destroyed. That's right, the very first person to burn and destroy the "holy" revelations is responsible for the book you hold dearest. Odd isn't it? You believe in the contents of a book that was not christened by the individual you claim as the receptive prophet.

Islam is grounded in the Koran but the book is false, in my opinion. The hadith even moreso.

What comes next is the interesting part. Muslims are not content to practice Islam and still honor the rights of other religions without interfering in deadly ways. Its a crime in Islamic controlled states to own a Bible or to display a symbol of faith. Muslims believe that such control is justified, they believe themselves to be right and all others wrong such that murdering a non muslim is judged far less severely than if a muslim were murdered. Women are second class citizens. Those that turn away are to be killed. The list of control points is endless. Control, control, control.

I'm content to let God decide the fate of a person at the judgement seat.

A gentle jewish man, along with his children, were murdered while he tended them off to school. A muslim did this horrible act. Do you believe these murders made the world a better place? I don't. I'm saddened. But this is the solution you offer. I reject your claim.
