Please Dont Call Islam a Religion of Peace

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]
in response to reader comment: Islam the greatest is growing in America

Submitted by Iqbal C. (United States), Dec 2, 2002 at 11:14

This is in response to American Muslim's posting of November 30.

What peaceful history is he talking about? Islam's history is full of blood, second to none, right from days of Prophet Mohammed. Prophet Mohammed in his last 10 years was involved in over 75 armed encounters, all offensive except one (Battle of Ditch), massacre of 900 jews (Bani Quraiza), assasination of his critics (Afak, Kaab, Asma and others), promotion of slavery and sex with captive women and slaves. After his death, three of the four caliphs (Omar, Usman, Ali) were murdered by muslims, many wars were fought between muslims themselves killing thousands, his own son in law Ali and grandson Hussain were brutally murdered by muslims, and his widow Ayesha (mother of muslim umma) fought a bloody war with her own son in law and the 4th caliph. Muslims killed millions and captured half the world from India to Europe within 75 years . There is no paralell in history of the massacres and killings they did in India.
Please call Islam by any name but dont call it religion of Peace.
