Why Muslims Are Violent

June 14, 2016

Clue if only

Islam is the most violent religion in the world. Indeed, Islam has been spread by violence since its inception. What explains this? Below are citations from the Quran. You can look each of these up at this official Islamic website, which includes six English translations of the Quran:

This is pretty straight forward folks. There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no such thing as peaceful Islam. Violence is not an aberration in Islam—it is DOCTRINE. Dozens of passages in the Quran exhort Muslims to hate or kill or terrorize infidels (non-Muslims) wherever they find them. For examples, see Suras 2:190-193, 2:216, 2:244, 3:56, 3:142, 3:151, 4:24 (rape of captive women); 4:34 (wife beating); 4:56, 4:74 (beheading), 4:76, 4:84, 4:89, 4:91, 4:95, 4:104,  5:32-38, 7:96-99, 8:12-15 (beheading, terrorism), 8:39, 8:57-60, 8:65-67, 9:5, 9:14, 9:20-30, 9:38-41, 9:73, 9:88, 9:111, 9:123, 17:16, 18:65-81, 21:44, 22:18-22, 25:52, 33:60-62, 47:3-4 (beheading), 47:35, 48:16-17, 48:29, 61:4, and 66:8-12. These are the passages that jihadists quote in defense of their horrible atrocities. Unlike the Old Testament, violence in the Quran is mostly open-ended, that is, not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding events.

Behind these overtly violent passages, there are underlying passages that shed light on these. For example, non-Muslims are considered pigs and apes (Suras 5:60, 7:166). A Muslim should not even take Jews or Christians for friends (Suras 3:28, 5:51). Unbelievers are Muslims’ “open enemies” (Sura 4:101). Apostate Muslims are subject the the worst penalties (16:106), which is why parents will disown or even kill a child that leaves Islam. (See the  riveting testimony of a former Muslim near the end of this article entitled “Jesus in the Quran.” Passages that demean women in various ways are almost too numerous to count. See:

Treatment of Women

 

While there are passages that Muslims point to that might suggest peaceful solutions (Suras 2:190, 2:256, 5:8, 5:28, 5:32, 8:61, 29:46, 41:34, 60:8, 109:6), these are overwhelmed by the violent ones. Indeed, the peaceful passages were abrogated (Sura 2:106, 13:39, 16:101, 17:106, 22:52), i.e. superseded, by the violent ones—because the violent ones were written later, after Muhammad’s move to Medina (from Mecca). Anyone who wants to commit acts of violence has perfect justification for doing so from the Quran. There is nothing in the Quran comparable to Jesus’ teachings to “turn the other cheek” and to “love even your enemies.”

Here is a short video on the Quran and its violent message:

In addition to the Quran are the Sunnah (Hadith + Sira = “The Way of Muhammad”). These are collections of sayings and actions of Muhammad. Indeed, Muhammad was one of the most violent men in history, setting the example for all Muslims to follow. Some 13% of the Hadith is about jihad. An example is a statement by Muhammad found in the Bukhari Hadith 4.52.220, which says: “I have been made victorious with terror.” Over 93 times in the Quran, Muslims are commanded to follow the example of Muhammad.

Some say that there must be a way to interpret the many violent commands in Islamic holy books in a peaceful way. Well, here is how world Islamic leaders interpret them, from the horse’s mouth:

If you are not really familiar with the foundations and history of Islam, PLEASE look over this non-politically correct history of Islam:

Here are videos where you can see how everyday Muslims ADMIT to accepting violence because it is in their books:
