Some of the anti-Islam rhetoric here is a bit much.

Dallas, you continually reiterated the fallacy that "Muslims continue to invade other countries" and that "The Qur'an says this and that", yet, here we are with the truth staring us in the face and you still say it.

They didn't invade us, we invaded them, over and over. You continue to cling to your bible as if it is truth, and turn around and say the Qur'an tells it's followers to kill people when your bible says the same things. Your bible says that men are dominant over women, etc.

Your slanderous intent is disturbing because it represents a very scary mind that is all too common. You continue to spew malice and judgment onto other people, when your own bible tells you not to do so; it tells you not to pass judgment. If you truly believed in God and righteousness then you would understand that God doesn't need a fool or bigot to protect his holy word and he doesn't need you to force unto others. You're spreading hate and evil, bigotry.

Oh.. and the funniest thing. People are soooo scared that Islam is going to infiltrate the US government, or actually lead an army to take us over by force.

I've already said that a take over by force is literally physically impossible, and everyone knows that. We have the strongest military in the US, the best weapons, arsenals, etc. Heck, our military is so good that we are even able to control the entire mid-east and most of Asia Minor on their home turf.

2009 CIA Fact book at www.factbook.net... states that the USA has 0.6% Muslims. that's only. 1,843,273 . There are over 200 million civilian owned handguns in the US alone. You do the math.

If you think a political takeover is a possiblity.. Again.. Muslims are not only the most hated group in America, but they only have a .6% population. That is laughable.

If you are really worried about a religious takeover by a group of people who has allegiances that fall outside of our own country, maybe you should be more worried about the Jews. Many of the Jews that hold positions in Washington are actually dual-citizens, and the Zionist lobbyists literally control most of Washington. These are facts, not paranoia. And truthfully I have no problem with Judaism, only with Zionism.

Maybe that's who you should be worried, because that threat is real.

Instead they want you to focus on a bearded boogieman so you don't see what's really happening.

Thank you for this. I started a thread on this subject a while back titled The Islam Conspiracy, it quickly devolved into a hate fest filled with bigots.

I hear a lot of these people say "Well if Islam is really a peaceful religion, why don't they speak out against Islamic violence?" The fact is they do, but bigots have their hands over their eyes.


Chanting “No more terrorism,” about 150 Muslim and Nigerian protesters waved U.S. flags as they rallied in the cold outside the federal courthouse during a hearing for the suspect accused of trying to bomb a Detroit-bound plane on Christmas Day.

“Muslims here to tell you: Go to hell,” read a sign held by Majed Rizki, 48, of Dearborn. “It was a sin against humanity, against civilization,” Rizki said of the attempted attack.

“Islam is not a terrorist religion,” Bilal Amen, 27, vice chair of the Islamic Institute of Knowledge in Dearborn, said while holding an American flag. “Islam is a peaceful religion.”

Amen and others said they were concerned that the Muslim suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmatallab, was giving the wrong image of Islam.

“I’m an American, born and raised,” Amen said. “Islam teaches us to abide by the laws of our land.”

Islam is a religion, just like any other religion. The fact is, it's people that are evil or good, not the religion itself. Do we blame all Christians because of the actions of Scott Roeder? Of course we don't, why? because it's not what Christianity is all about. We don't take groups like the Army of God as representative of all Christians. They are a minority in an otherwise much more peaceful whole.

You know what..I really understand the islam religion at the time when Saladin ruled. I really respected it..both the leaders and their proper behaviour..They even loved their women..But islam today-I cant say i got anything left for it. Its evil against women and simple minded. Saladin made the islamic people proud because of his and the islamic leaders deeds. The saladin for the 2010 is "Al quida".

Your comment isnt actually reffered to the USA..its reffered to the entire world.!

No, really I didn't think I'd get any stars or flags because it seems like most of the people on this website hate Muslims and are proud of that fact, and quick to bring their bunk justifications to the table.

I just wanted to defend Islam, because it offends me to me to hear all the lies that are said. I got sick of it, and wanted to stand up for Islam.

Please give me one specific example from your quotes out of the Quran, and I will be happy to debate the context, and show you that it only justifies self defense.

If you want to look at imperialistic histories you will find that most other religions have the same problem. All throughout history there have been people that distorted their religion and used it as an excuse to dehumanize others and have an excuse for conquest.

[edit on 22-1-2010 by seattletruth]


I have just checked the quotes and they are completely wrong!

Dallas is a disinfo religious extremist.

I picked out a few at random, checked the context with Yusuf Ali translation and every single one mentions fighting in SELF-DEFENCE!

LOL I will post the full version to embrass Dallas further.

The philosophy in the Koran is this - defend yourself. If you are attacked DEFEND yourself properly!

When Spartans in 300 movie said it was all GREAT and fantastic. When this is preached in the Koran it is perceived as wrong.

Here is what it says in 9:5:

5. But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

and

13. Will ye not fight people who violated their oaths, plotted to expel the Messenger, and took the aggressive by being the first (to assault) you? Do ye fear them? Nay, it is Allah Whom ye should more justly fear, if ye believe!

6. If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah. and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge.

DALLAS YOU ARE NOW PROVEN TO BE A DECEIVER.

LMAO.

The islamic today dont need american Propaganda (American meaning...usa\canada\brazil\mexico\argentina\bolivia ect.)..You only need 2 take a friendly vication 2 a islamic city..then you have all the proof you need.

We christians know we got people out there who ARE brainwashed in christianity..But we keep them away.

You muslims gather up,and everyone seem to have the same understanding and thought. Killing people in the name of allah,even though its Al quaida,YOUR PEOPLE HAVE DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT. Get rid of Al quida and everyone who makes a bad name for the muslims,then u might have a chance. At least we could respect eachother.

Goodness gives respect. Goodness gives a reward in return.
Killing people dont. And since people are still killing in the name of allah,islam will still be a horrible horrible religion.

But ofc..enjoy yourself and your war terror aslong as you can..because there are only 2 more years left.

Again, to the OP, allow me to offer you a human-to-human apology for the behavior of other humans that hurt and offended you, and judged you so unfairly.



Don't worry about it. I don't face any discrimination or anything, althought I'm sure most Arabs do. Truthfully I'm white, blond haired and blue eyed. I was atheist my whole life but converted to Islam a few months ago.

The funny part is that because people would never suspect I'm Muslim, they tend to really open their mind up and expose their bigotry, thinking that they are talking to sympathetic ears.

Really though, I expect that from most Americans (sad but true). I only became upset because I held higher standards for ATS, and there has been a lot of hate here recently.

This is entirely true, but, like most other religious people, many Muslims believe out of duty and respect and have read very little of the text of the Koran, which is nearly always printed in archaic Arabic, by tradition.

Mainstream Muslims have a religion between themselves and God, and it is a love affair with their Creator who provides food, money, water, blessings, children, and love, amongst other things.

Sounds like most Americans. Respect of God, thanks to Him, and not a whole lot of Bible-reading. A lot of good still gets done, and people still call themselves Christians and are beloved of God for being kind, strong, merciful, altruistic, honest, grateful, etc. Just like mainstream Muslims, who are the vast majority of Muslims.

You guys do remember the videos of these hate filled muslims slowly sawing other peoples heads off right?

You remember them cheering in their rat infested cured streets and cities when ANY terrorist attack happens, anywhere.

I can't believe the ignorance from people on here?!?! As for me, I will not back down and feel sympathy for the muslim or his religion and those that do are no better than the killers in their videos they make...killing Christians, Jews, and our American Soldiers!

Now, you show me ONE place in the Koran where allah tells any muslim to love christians or jews...or even love you neighbor, let alone your enemies!!!

I have showed you many suras telling muslims to kill every one near them it seems yet you continue to ask for proof? Are you blind!!!

So now i challenge you to prove me wrong, since you cant seem to answer my posts.

Do you remember the videos of US soldiers killing civilians, throwing puppies over a cliff, torturing prisoners?

Do you remember the court cases of murders and rapes? There are hundreds. HUNDREDS, if not Thousands.

How many videos are there of "extremists cutting off heads", hm? A dozen.. little more? How many extremists are displayed in these videos? About 50?

Do the math, and you tally up to see which side has committed the most atrocities.

there are lots of places. look up "people of the book" in the koran.

you have already been found to be spreading disinfo, falsehood, hatred, lies.

the quotes were indeed out of context and you missed the next verses that stated the conditions of war: self-defence.

how much more humiliation do you need?

you are exactly the type of person you are preaching against!

You are completely right. But with the way you just explained it...that would mean only the wild 10% fundamentalist muslims are the true believers and follow what their text truly says...

Just like I follow what the Bible really says. That would mean the other 90% of muslims are not really muslims at all, but back sliding slackers that just say there a muslim cause there parents were. Much like catholics do now a days

I am asking you for proof because you only GAVE ONE VERSE FROM EACH SECTION OF THE QURAN.

You say that's proof? I say it's taken out of context. Bring me a specific example and I will debate you.

Also the Quran DOES say to respect Jews and Christians, but not to trust them. I will find you some verses to prove this.

A specific example is that Muslim men are allowed to marry both Christian and Jewish women. This is a fact, and mentioned in the Quran.

WELL WE KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE US & CO. HAVE INDEED COMMITTED THE ATROCITES.

BUT WE DO NOT KNOW WHO THE DUBIOUS PEOPLE ON YOUTUBE WITH MASKS ARE, WHO THEY ARE EMPLOYED BY.

FALSE FLAGS, CIA IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.

AL-QUAIDA IS CIA.

THERE IS ONLY ONE SIDE COMMITTING THE ATROCITIES ON EVERYONE - THE NWO.

Well actually, from a neutral view point, you look pretty stupid too. Bascially your preaching hate about a religion, which, (apart from the fundamentalists actions), you know nothing about.

Show me what you got fella. And about the context thing. The sura is in context. Killing and maiming. And besides, the suras i posted were a complete statement. No one sura before or after would change what the sura said. Stop trying to worm your way out of this. Islam is a cult of War. Founded on war, called to war, and live for war and blood. 1500 years prove it.

Compare the history of Islam to the history of the Christians for an example of who's religion is pure. (and i don't mean catholic history...there as bad as the muslims...)

One thing that I don't think people fully understand about Islam is that, as a Muslim, you must believe that the Jews were God's chosen people, Moses was a true prophet, the Torah is true scripture, Jesus was a true prophet, and the Bible contains some true scripture.

Here's quotes from the Quran showing that Islam is not about killing the Jews and Christians.

Note the "people of the scripture" means Jews and Christians.


[29:46] Do not argue with the people of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) except in the nicest possible manner - unless they transgress - and say, "We believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you, and our god and your god is one and the same; to Him we are submitters."

[5:5] Today, all good food is made lawful for you. The food of the people of the scripture is lawful for you. Also, you may marry the chaste women among the believers, as well as the chaste women among the followers of previous scripture, provided you pay them their due dowries. You shall maintain chastity, not committing adultery, nor taking secret lovers. Anyone who rejects faith, all his work will be in vain, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.

[5:65] If only the people of the scripture believe and lead a righteous life, we will then remit their sins, and admit them into gardens of bliss.

[45:16] We have given the Children of Israel the scripture, wisdom, and prophethood, and provided them with good provisions; we bestowed upon them more blessings than any other people.

Well, if you hadn't quoted me out of context, you could have also noted that I compared it to soldiers raping, torturing and murdering Iraqi/Afghan citizens... but I guess you don't want to do that. In some cases, children were brutally raped and murdered, and this is only what has been reported.

That was kind of a disgusting thing for you to do, to be perfectly honest..

You're trying to slander an entire population without first passing judgment on yourself. You spread hate on others without first acknowledging the sins of your own nation, let alone try to atone for them.

This is my last entry on this thread. The things you say Dallas, are not worthy of response. I am so ashamed to be living in the same country as you.
