An Oligarchy structure waging war based on "nothing" that Jesus taught. That is why they didn't teach the population to read.
One thing though, can you show me the quotes of Jesus that inspired such actions?
(34) Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
(35) For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in
(36) And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
(37) He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
(38) And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
(39) He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Yes, and what has he told his "followers" to do? HE is the sword of truth, Jesus doesn't tell his followers to HARM anyone. Where is the violence?
Where is the subjugation, where is Jesus ordering harm?
Now, how about this:
"The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may
terrorize them." Qur'an 9:71
"Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them.
They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy - a fierce slaughter - murdered, a horrible
murdering." Qur'an 33:60
"Slay them wherever you find and catch them, and drive them out from where they have turned you out; for persecution and oppression are worse than
slaughter." Qur'an 2:191
"I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off
each of their fingers and toes." Qur'an 8:12
Fight those who do not believe in Allah, ... until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. [Qur'an
Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Qur'an 9:5)
"So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam." Qur'an:8:39
The punishment for those who wage war against God and His Prophet, and perpetrate disorders in the land, is to kill or hang them, or have a hand on
one side and a foot on the other cut off, or banish them from the land. Such is their disgrace in the world, and in the Hereafter their doom shall be
dreadful. Qur'an 5.33
"If they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them." Qur'an 4:90
"Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: 'Wipe the infidels out to the last.'" Qur'an:8:7
33:50 - "Prophet, We have made lawful to you ... the slave girls whom God has given you as booty."
4:24 - And all married women (are forbidden) unto your save those (captives) whom your right hand possesses.
"So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)." Qur'an
As I said before, It is what it is.... and it isn't peaceful.... nice try though.
