in response to reader comment: Islam: glorifying violence and intolerance

Dear Chetalli,

You asked pagan to listen to himself, but you are the one who needs to listen to yourself. You called Islam a religion of peace. Was Spain conquered peacefully in 711? I think not. Those Killers who murdered three thousand in New York and Washington were they being peaceful? I think not. Do you think the jihadist of the Sudanese government are being peaceful towards the people of Darfur? Nope.

You said muslim thinkers labled Islam a religion of peace. Ofcourse they would, they are only following the directives of the Koran which tells them to give false impressions to infidels before attacking them. Islam is being judged by what is in the Koran and hadith, and especially by the actions of muslims. When we hear things like little girls in Indonesia being beheaded because they were Christian, we cannot consider Islam a religion of peace.

Just like pagan stated, Muhammad is the only founder of a faith that encouraged his followers to conquer other peoples lands and force them to become muslim. When they refused they usually lost their heads. So please stop saying Islam is a religion of peace, because according to history it is not.
