There’s a whole lot of death in the Quran, a whole lot of violence. It promises paradise to those Muslims who kill for Allah and condemns those Muslims who do not engage in fighting (4:95) and will punish them to hell if they don’t fight (9:38-39) It calls for you to kill even if you don’t like it as it’s what Allah has prescribed to Muslims and he knows what’s best for them (2:216) It calls to “cast terror into the hearts of non-believers” (3:151) – sound familiar? Those who reject faith will be punished with terrible agony (3:56) It tells to cut the hands and the feet off anyone who attacks Allah (5:33) and behead and cut the fingers and toes off non-believers (8:12) and another call to tie up and behead non-believers, though you must first try get ransom money from them or convert them to Islam to avoid hell (47:3-4) – Sound familiar? And calls for his followers to never stop fighting the non-believers until everyone worships Allah – sound familar? It warns that Islam will be offered to people in towns they wish to destroy, if they refuse then there will be “utter destruction.” (17:16) – Sound familiar? Remember when Osama Bin Laden sent a letter to America offering them to submit to his demands or face total destruction just before 9/11? These extreme ideas didn’t just pop out of nowhere… It demands wives and daughters to cover all of themselves except for their eyes (33:59) and to cut the hands off thieves (5:38) and “The woman or man found guilty of sexual intercourse, lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah.” (24:2) A perfect example of modern Islamic law which we are told “isn’t real Islam.”
It’s just a few examples of the Quran. As for the Hadith.
Muhammad permits children and women being exposed to terrorism as they are the children of the enemy (52:256) Muhammad said, “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him” (52:177) Mummamad gloats, “I have been made victorious with terror” (52:220) Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” (1:33) Muhammad said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.” (8:387) Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 990 decalres “Cutting off someone’s head while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ is not modern, but a tradition of Islam that began with Muhammad.” Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992 says Muhammad would instruct his military to “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah” before each one of their raids. Tabari 7:97 talks about Muhammad declaring to,“Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim. Muhammad ordered a man who had committed “illegal sexual intercourse” to be stoned to death, when the first rocks struck the man he tried to flee but he was caught and continued to be stoned to death. Another perfect example of modern Islamic law which we are told “isn’t real Islam.”
The violent verses are much more numerous than the peaceful verses. Even then we have to remember, much of the peaceful verses are extended only to Muslims. When they talk about love, they talk about loving your fellow Muslim. When they talk about Allah loving you, it is Allah loving his believers. Show me one example where Allah has said he loves or cares for non-believers. It has nothing to do with loving and being peaceful against non-believers. Terrorism and killing or disgracing non-believers has been the epitome of Islam since it’s beginnings. The very translation of Islam is ‘submission’ for fucks sake.
Muhammad was a bloodthirsty warlord hellbent on converting the world to Islam by the sword. He took child brides, forced a 9 year old to have sex with him when he was in his 50s, he had endless amounts of wives, he was a war criminal who loved only those who believed in him and Allah, it’s that simple. He and his men are no different from the terrorists we have today. They continue to carry out terrorism today and have the goal for Islam to overtake the world because that’s exactly what their prophet once did and instructs them to continue. Yet we continue to believe that Islam is peaceful and terrorism or even extremism has nothing to do with Islam, because that’s what our Muslim friend at school told us to believe. Give me a break.
