Do you think ISLAM is a religion of terrorism ?
Firstly, it's very obvious that Islam is not a religion of terrorism. However, it's still a religion of war, violence and sexism, among other nasty things.
How I know this, you may ask. It's very simple - just read the Quran casually.
First off, the matter of gender equality. Sura 4, verse 11, establishes that a man is worth twice the amount than women, legally. In other words, in Islam sexism is mathematically established.
Secondly, the rape part. Muhammad was not a peaceful hippie like Buddha or Jesus. He was a warlord. He kept hundreds of sex slaves and raped women in front of their husbands, defeated in battle, before he executed or enslaved them. He personally slew 800 Jewish men and boys. Not in combat, no - he executed them. (Abu Dawud 4390)
There's nothing especially wrong with this, though, as muslims are not Muhammad. Excepting the part about Islam where you're supposed to follow Muhammads example - try to be as much as a Muhammad as you can. So, technically, muslims are supposed to kill infidels, rape women and execute Jews! Incredible! (Sura 33, verse 21).
There's also the part where men are allowed to strike their men. Sura 4, verse 34 establishes that a man is allowed to hit his wife if she disobeys him, in all matters. You don't want to cook that evening? Well, it's his, your husband, right and duty to hit you.
Fourthly, Muhammad did not simply go to war with the infidels and non-believers. He also beckoned all muslims to do the same! He told his fellow muslims to fight against the infidels wherever they would find them, until they submit to Allah or die. This can be found in sura 9, verse 29.
Islam is also the only world religion that retains its followers membership by threatening to kill those that leave it. This is set by Muhammad's example. Hadith, Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260.¨
There's also the practical evidence. 18,000 deadly terror attacks committed explicitly in the name of Islam in just the last ten years. (Other religions combined for perhaps a dozen or so).
Lets compare Muhammad to Jesus shortly. This is not to endorse Christianity, but only to show the contrast. Muhammad stoned a woman for adultery, (Muslim 4206
). Jesus? "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." (John 8:7).
Ever heard an eye for an eye? If the world applied that logic, "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.", wise words as said by Gandhi. Muhammad had a different idea, though.
"If then anyone transgresses
the prohibition against you,
Transgress ye likewise against him"
"If someone strikes you on the right
cheek, turn to him the other also."
There's also the matter of holy wars. These two prophets had entirely different ideas when it came to those, and war in general. Not only due to their actions in life, but also their preachings. Lets compare them.
"I have been commanded to fight
against people till they testify that there
is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad
is the messenger of Allah"
This basically means that all that don't believe in Allah must die or convert to Islam. Splendid.
Jesus had, once again, another idea.
"He who lives by the sword
will die by the sword."
A final comparison will be the simple fact that Muhammad crucified people. Jesus was himself crucified, simply due to the fact that he did not comply in belief to others.
On top of all this, Islam is against democracy. It cannot exist in a secular society alongside a functioning government if you were to follow the beliefs advocated by the Quran and other holy texts. (Sura 33, verse 36, and sura 18, verse 26.)
It's pretty obvious what the answer to your question is. As a final gift, I leave you this wonderful quote:
"Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!"
(The last words from the cockpit of Flight 93)

@alwaysstranger good. It's good that you got a plan. Now, you must just execute it. I hope everything would go the way you want it to.
I love papers please
You accepted Jorji Costava's cobrastan passport
This represents your stupidity.
The penalty is death. Your execution is scheduled for tonight.
Your family will be questioned about their intelligence.
Finding a replacement inspector will be easy.
Glory to Arstotzka.
Close ur eyes and type "go home you are drunk"
@ragnar-lothbrok In China, solar eclipses were thought to be associated with the health and success of the emperor, and failing to predict one meant putting him in danger. Legend has it that 2 astrologers, Hsi and Ho, were executed for failing to predict a solar eclipse. Historians and astronomers believe that the eclipse that they failed to forecast occurred on October 22, 2134 BCE, which would make it the oldest solar eclipse ever recorded in human history.
@lizzy Hello. Let me introduce myself. My name is Damien Patrick Mosteller. I am thirteen years old, and I plan on someday creating a company called Mostech. The name Mostech derived from a mix of my family's last name (Mosteller) and technologies or technical (meant to represent this company's role in integrating technology into public and private financial and marketing platforms). Mostech will take over every industry by using mischievously clever executive design infrastructure using the principles of categorization and hive minds. I will run the future!

Some nice quotes by Ned Kelly during his trial
"I have outlived that care that curries public favour or dreads the public frown...let the hand of law strike me down if it will, but I ask that my story be heard and considered."
"I do not pretend that I have led a blameless life, or that one fault justifies another, but the public in judging a case like mine should remember that the darkest life may now have a bright side."
"If my lips teach the public that men are made mad by bad treatment, and if the police are taught that they may exasperate to madness men they persecute and I’ll treat, my life will not be entirely thrown away."
After being executed, the public got real mad, and police corruption had more focus on it, resulting in a better society. He did not live to see his effect on Australia society. But as his last words stated, 'Such is life.'
Christ has returned. Baha'u'llah
Many people are waiting on a "rapture" yet this is a misunderstanding of Scripture based on literal interpretation of Scripture created in the early 1800's by only a few people. Yet in the Bible it clearly states that the return of Christ would bear a new name as stated in Revelation 3:12 verse, also the "title" that He would come in "The Glory of God" which in Arabic is pronounced Baha'u'llah, and that Name is pronounced the same in every language on earth as stated in Zechariah 14:9 verse. The Bible tells us where He would come from "E-lam" which was Persia, now Iraq. The Bible gives the year and month....May, 1844 A.D. and on May 22nd, 1844 A.D. a young man named The Bab announced a new Dispensation had arrived for mankind fulfilling the Scriptures and like John the Baptist, He foretold of One greater to come shortly after Him in 9 years, and on July 9th, 1850 A.D. The Bab was executed and in the course of 9 years Baha'u'llah received His Revelation from GOD as the Promised One of all ages, the Return of Christ. All the signs were fulfilled by His coming when one researches the Bahai Faith, and reads the Writings of Baha"u'llah especially "The Book of Certitude" where Baha'u'llah goes into great detail to explain the subject of "return" to members of all Faiths especially Christianity, and Islam. The return of Christ has come just as the Bible foretold..."like a thief in the night" when people were spiritually asleep and not searching. In today's times the clergy has painted such a vivid picture in people's minds that anything other than what they have stated about the return of Christ should be igorned, yet isn't that exactly what happened at the 1st coming of Christ with the clergy telling the people what to believe and think, and they got it totally wrong! All that I ask of you is to fairly and justly investigate the claim of Baha'u"llah as the return of Christ by the Bible's Divine Standard, as stated in JOHN 7:24 verse and remember what is written on MARK 8:38 verse.
