The whole premis of your thread is built on a foundation of missunderstanding.
Jihad - Struggle.
Internal struggle, this is your faith
Externall Struggle - this is the struggle to improve your society/group
Struggle to defend Islam.
Note the word DEFEND!!
And with so many American, British, Australian etc troups on their lands they have a lot of defending to do.
For every quote you have made here from the Koran, there is a matching quote in the Bible which tells good Christians to murder or cut off hands or
poke out eyes etc. Instructions about what women may or may not do without incuring rath. Instructions to kill the gays, the non beleivers etc.
"And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God..." (Deuteronomy
"Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and
smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and
ass." (I Samuel 15:2-3)
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their
own heads. (Leviticus 20:13)
The LORD is a man of war. (Exodus 15:3)
So get off your morral high ground. It is your sort of misinformation which breeds hate, and we ahev quite enough of that already thank you.
I leave you withh this:
