From my understanding, Islam is a religion of peace and maintaining peace.
You didn't clear up the confusion. I didn't say felt I said have the same ideas.The Taliban are just a group with Sunni belief.
Let me put it more clearly what is the difference between you a Sunni and the Taliban who are Sunni religiously? My bet is nothing just like the IRA are catholic.
One Celt to another uh, So you are also a new convert to Islam the worst kind just like newly born again ones. Being a Celt your roots are not in Islam but Druidism.
This overall message I'm getting from the op is one of contradiction...deriding hate in a hateful way, calling people ignorant and expressing a desire to ignore those who disagree

I converted earlier in the year, but have been studying Islam for over 5 years.
“Religion, from religare, signifies to tie or bind, because by true religion the soul is tied or bound, as it were, to God and His service.”
Museum of Antiquity A Description of Ancient Life
“The word religion comes from the word "religare" -- to bind fast, to connect.”
religare - definition and meaning
"There is so much more to this world but without removing the veil one may not ever see it. But man has forgotten how to listen. The awakening of man will only happen when man begins to listen to his creator. You have a purpose. All beings have a purpose." Lady in the Water - Prologue
Sundar Singh was born in 1889 into a wealthy Sikh family in Rampur, India. At the age of 14, on the night before a planned suicide, he cried out to God to show himself. Jesus appeared to Sundar in a vision saying, “I died for you. I am the Savior of the world.” This encounter was so powerful, that Sundar dedicated his life to following Jesus and sharing the Gospel. Sadhu Sundar Singh
Praying all night in the mosque, he asked God to help him. Suddenly he felt drops of oil falling on him and even smelled its fragrance, he says. He claims another time he heard an audible voice telling him to read a Bible—an abomination to a Muslim. “We would not touch a modern-day Bible,” he says. “This voice immediately put a desire in my heart. It is so vivid, so clear, so overwhelming. Still today, I could not forget that voice.”
For example, one man in a nation hostile to Christianity says he heard a voice telling him, “Find Jesus, find the gospel.” He didn’t know what Jesus was—a chair, a tree, an animal? But the voice told him exactly what city and house to go to, so he traveled for two weeks, arriving directly at the door of one of only three believers in the city.
Why Revival is Exploding Among Muslims
I had a real encounter with an evil spirit once; and only He could save me from the evil grip. You see, one of the rooms in our house had been known to have an evil spirit occupant. Many including my brothers and aunt had seen the spirit in the dark form of an ugly man. I was not a true believer of evil spirits and stuff that they were talking about. I did, however, have a rather strange experience when I spent the night in that room.
One fateful night, it was quite different and that thing got hold of me entirely. My whole body was paralyzed and the only body parts that still worked were my eye balls and my mind. I thought then that I was in real trouble this time. The feeling was awful and I was in the dark void completely.
In desperation, I called out bismillah imanirohim (from the Islamic religion) and then tried to recite omitoufut (from the Buddhism religion), but none of them worked. Finally, I cried out “Jesus, please help me!” and instantly I was freed and I made a quick dash out of that room. My parents sold that house a few years later.
Muslim encounter with Jesus
"...to ignore the evidence that appears to be accumulating worldwide would take either a large dose of denial (which is apparently available in maximum dosages in many media quarters) or a desire to ignore the obvious."
A disbeliever is someone who bears witness to God... & still turns their back...
However I think I'm right in saying that all Hadiths are from after his death!
But the Hadith are similar to the Gospels of the disciples in the sense that it's others speaking on behalf of, or paraphrasing the respective Prophets!

If I'm not mistaken you agreed with someone being antagonistic and calling for a nuclear attack on every Muslim...
Read the T&Cs and you'll realise that no agenda is there, it clearly says not to advocate or incite violent action!
Better yet why don't you explain why you think it's ok to nuke every Muslim?
Let's see if there is an agenda there!
I have familiarized myself with the Quran more recently and this is precisely why I have started to promote the following theory:
