ISLAM- "the religion of peace"?

I'm a free thinker, free from religious dogma. What I can't understand is why Muslims move to democratic countries and riot and cause trouble. . Its a false totalitarian ideology.

If religion is anti gay, anti lesbian, anti democratic, anti secular government then PLEASE stay in the middle east. We don't need the barbaric Sharia law etc Is it not true that your prophet had a intimate(sexual) relationship with a child? Who in their right mind would worship a prophet like that! 

Muslims abroad get to do what they like, when they like and how they like, but heaven forbid a person who is not a Muslim says something about them. Newsflash, there are other religions besides Islam, people have different points of view to Muslims. People are entitled to criticize Islam, Christianity, Judaism etc You live in a democratic country with a something called freedom of speech. People insult Christianity all the time but you don't see them going on a rioting rampage through cities using violence and intimidation. Makes you people look like fools who cant face the 'heat'. If you can't handle criticism then please leave' and go back to the 7th century stone age laws in the middle east. You will not force your archaic views on the rest of the planet. Muslims are only peaceful when they are a minority in a country but if they were a majority then Sharia law would be in place and women would have minimal rights and freedom of speech would be nonexistent. Here is a link about Sharia law and its punishments-
This means that the Western politicians and liberal journalists, who continually spout that Islam is a noble religion of peace, are in reality propagating a deception that they have been deceived into parroting.The impression is that the entire Quran promotes peace, love, equality and tolerance for all. That is far from the truth. Most Muslims fully understand that the few Quranic verses that seemingly promote equality, peace and justice are more often than not overridden/ nullified by later verses that validate such things as terrorism and legalistic restrictions on routine human and women’s rights. You must remember that the Koran has never undergone any changes unlike the Bible and other religions. It is claimed to be the word of god and can never be changed that is why the followers and preachers of Islam still have archaic 7th century views. I just wish the media and the PC liberals would see the truth in Islam, it's a false totalitarian ideology. I always ask this question to the PC people; Go and live in a Muslim country where the government uses Islamic(Sharia law) and let me know how it went? Islam has a strong ideological dimension - it seeks to control all aspects of life, from politics to how you have sex with your wife. It is at its core anti-democratic, anti-liberal, anti-secular, anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-infidel, anti anything you hold dear as a western person.   Radical Muslim followers will find other motives to justify their aggression. Meanwhile they will just continue killing worshippers and burning places of worship of other religions all over the world(in Islamic dominated countries like Egypt,Pakistan,Bangladesh..) while pretending to be hurt and insulted.These people shouldn't have an ounce of credit with anyone. 

They burn worshippers together with bibles and churches and nobody complains but if someone spills some coffee over their beloved Koran, the security council has to hold a session. One can only wonder how long this madness will continue and when the free people will come to their senses. Muslims are so easy to manipulate due to their religious indoctrination. What amazes me is they have no problem with violence and murder, but an insult to someones faith is the ultimate sin. They would quite happily kill a person but never commit blasphemy. Talk about a dark ages religion. The Koran and it's scriptures, the very text is a classic example of hate speech personified, not to mention it's endorsement of violence in the name of GOD, which Muslims take literally.   The thing is, followers of Islam( radical Muslims) abroad get to do what they like, when they like and how they like, but heaven forbid a person who is not a Muslim says something about them. Newsflash, there are other religions besides Islam, people have different points of view to Muslims. People are entitled to criticize Islam, Christianity, Judaism etc We live in a democratic country with a something called freedom of speech. People insult Christianity all the time but you don't see them going on a rioting rampage through cities using violence and intimidation. Makes them look ignorant and arrogant who cant face the 'heat'. If they can't handle criticism then please, by all means, leave and go back to the 7th century stone age laws in countries that still use religious laws like the Sharia(Islamic law from the 7 century) in politics. They will not force their archaic views on the rest of the planet. When Sharia law is in place, women would have minimal rights and freedom of speech is be nonexistent.

Islam (not Muslim's) deserves the utter condemnation of: every rational, intelligent, compassionate human being, anyone who values democracy, science, ethical behavior, the progress of humanity, women, world peace, free speech, human life, happiness, education, economic prosperity, and freedom of belief. The intelligent people of the world must try to reason with Muslim's to get them to renounce the barbarism and idiocy that is being preached by radical Islamcists. A lot of Muslims whereever they go are completely disinclined toward integration, they see themselves never as true nationals of the country where they have moved, even several generations on. The true allegiance always lies to other Muslim's not to society as a whole. They generally are closed minded and bring their own petty prejudices. Islam is not a religion of peace. By its nature Islam is radical, it has no shades. 

Any religion that cannot withstand the test of criticism has less a reason to exist than any criticism it may receive. It's all about rational thinking. Perhaps the UN should focus the discussions on outlawing religious violence rather than outlawing "blasphemy" or other forms of critical speech. This is very disturbing that an international body would be so quick to cave in to intolerance and stupidity. Most people are simply unaware that Islam is NOT just another religion but a totalitarian political cult-like ideology, which compels its followers into blind obedience, teaches intolerance, brutality and locks all Muslims and non-Muslims in a struggle deriving directly from the 7th century nomadic, predatory, Bedouin culture. People need to learn to free their minds and learn to think for themselves and question authority. 

  Just look at what happened in Bangladesh where Muslims burnt Buddhist temples and went on another violent rampage through cities because someone allegedly insulted/mocked there religion. Yet, they claim it's the "Religion of Peace" more like the religion of permanent offence! Why aren't the moderate Muslims condemning violence and protesting against this violent rampage around the world and many other acts of violence & intolerance. The moderate Muslims silence is deafening! Name me one country in the world which is dominated by Muslim's that shows respect for other peoples differences? Violence is a sign of weak faith! Do yourself a favour and read this article which is about Muslims and non Muslims in countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Egypy in conlfict.. http://hinduawaken.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/why-muslims-are-so-inclined-to-seduce-rape-and-marry-non-muslim-girlsby-dr-radhasyam-brahmachari" Remember this that anytime someone is outspoken about Islam and criticizes certain aspects of it will spend the rest of his/her? life needing protection. You life will be at risk. There have been numerous times that people who openly criticize it receive death threats. Again, other religions are criticized on a daily basis and I'm yet to hear about a person being marked for death because of it. A well known case, are the founders of South Park who use Jesus and many other characters in their cartoon series. About 2 years ago they used the prophet of Islam for some reason and they received death threats.   It would be wise for the South African government to keep in touch with the reality of  radical Islam! It's a dangerous belief in the minds of the radical Muslim.   "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." -- Voltaire

Totally agree with you.

I repeat, Islam is a vile, repugnant cult and should be opposed and despised as such. The end.

Islam truly is a religion of righteousness and peace, you are a "nothing" and a "nobody" to speak ill of another religion, The qur'aan is a guidance to mankind and should not be thought of as something which is violent, all I've come to clear off here is that you shouldn't think wrong of something you've never experienced before... Maturity comes in many levels but honey, i don't think you've been gifted with any such knowledge or morals to call yourself mature...

Which faith is more destructive to the civilized world, Islam or Christianity? More than anything, Islam is what it appears to be. It is unapologetic about what it is and what it intends to do - convert the world and kill any and everyone who refuses to go along with it. And Christianity - same agenda but more slick, sweet, sales talking "civilised" methods They are both abominations to mankind, and the sooner they perish from the face of the earth, the better.

Dear Jacob I appreciate that you have strong opinions on the subject and I began reading your contribution to try to understand your perspective. I confess that I couldn't really follow it in it's entirety. From the little I have gleaned, most of your knowledge of the subject matter seems to originate from the internet and mainstream media. I am a Muslim not by birth but by choice. I made a decision to accept Islam by first gathering first hand information. It is not simply a religion, but rather a way of life. Please take cognizance of contentious issues regarding the media and how the reporting is skewed to show only what is wished to be shown. I apologize for digressing, there are just too many aspects to cater for simultaneously. Let's try just the most important. Learn for yourself. I would advise you to simply visit a masjid (mosque), leaving all your pre-conceived notions behind. Please dress modestly and wash first if you are willing to entertain this experiment with scientific respect. You don't have to engage with anyone if you don't want to, just walk in, try not to disrupt any prayers, and observe for yourself. You cannot understand Islam by proxy. Stuck in the dark ages? If you are so inclined, look up the conduct of Salahuddin al Ayubi. He was the Muslim general that was active during the crusades. Islam does not need it's followers to defend it, as it can do so all by itself. I would ask that you verify your information and it's sources before relying on it.

Islam will be the biggest challenge of the next generation, that is for certain. The western world will regret ever letting this insanity through the borders.

Jacob, clearly you have a distorted and hate filled view of Islam based on propoganda by Islam haters. There is no truth to your views of the quraan as you have clearly not read the quraan and have no understanding of it. you have just written this article to get a reaction from muslims and you are hoping for a muslim to threaten you to prove your point. we wont threaten but instead hope and pray that you see the light. We are not intolerent to other religions. We only show intolorence to people like you who try and spread hate against Islam. We dont see people of other religions as infidels but peolple like you are definately infidels.

What ever may be the reason killing for the sake of god, holy land or a holy book is wrong a sequel or a book that followed violence should be condemned, all three books new test, old test and qur are buried with violence, Moderate and innocent Islamist/Muslims will never accept the faults buried in the books , what they follow is the moderate version of islam/muslim faith, what they see now is the true face of islam/muslim faith, which would have been followed by their proprietor, to conquer other countries by terrorizing to loot for food, natural resources and wealth. Moderate christians, judaists will not accept their religion is about terror which is the reason for fight between people.
