The Militant Hamas is the byproduct of Israels opression....The militancy can be stopped only by a peaceful Israel government.
When this militant Islam started spreading ? ... Don't try to combine the political issue with Islam...

Islam by any means is a very peaceful religion and Prophet Muhammed practised Peace and Mercy to the human beings..If you taking quranic versus out of context it doesn't mean Quran supports violence or killing..

Tell me which Religious scripture don't have it..If you take the history of any religion there was a war in the beginning..If you take Hinduism Krishna encourages the pandavas to kill their own relatives in the war..Does it mean that Krishna supports terrorism ?

And Jesus' words in Matthew 10:45?
"I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." Does it mean that Jesus want war ?
If you take things out of context you won't get the true picture..Learn the Quran with the context and what occasion each versus came. There are numerous versus in the quran to go with peace and tolerance. The Quran will give the proper meaning only to those who beleive in it.

If you see the life history of prophet Muhammed peace be up on him with a open mind with out prejudice and hate, you can understand the peaceful nature of the Islam.

The conflicts in human beings shows the evil nature of the humans... All the religions have come only to remove the evilness. If people don't understand it..the evilness within themself will over power them and that is the hell for the humans..If the humans overcome the evilness and enforce peace by cleansing themself instead of pointing to others and othergroups then that is the heaven for humans....Till the humans realize this, the conflict will be there with in themselves and with others..Be it a muslims, christian, jew or hindu.
