Islam: Religion of Peace

Some readings for your perusal:

QuranThe “Holy” Qur’an 22:19-22 “fight and slay the infidels, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem for them garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods.

Quran 8:60 Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah, and others besides them not known to you. Whatever you spend in Allah’s Cause will be repaid in full, and no wrong will be done to you.

Quran 4.89 They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

Quran 8:7 Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: Wipe the infidels out to the last.

    Be careful quoting just snippets of verses; people do this with the bible all the time and end up taking the verse out of context. Think of the violence in the bible; are all Christians blood-thirsty? I do agree with you in respect that it’s hard to think of Islam as a peaceful religion with the latest world events.

    Holy sweet baby Jesus. You forgot the most important quote where they will receive 70 virgins when they die. Which i never fully understood to tell you the truth. I mean…has anyone ever slept with a virgin. It kinda sucks.

    I’m not even sure there are any of those…

    Oh yeah, WCG, I don’t remember anywhere in the Bible where it tells Christians to go out and kill non-believers.

    True, but nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition!

    Aw, c’mon, Incredipete…you know it’s really all about good ole brotherly love, and “infidel” is just a silly pet-name! Those crazy, kooky, fun-loving muslims.

    If the bible doesn’t instruct you to go out and kill non-Christians, then what was the basis for the Holy Wars and the Crusades? What about the slaughter of the native indigents (indians) right here in good ol’ America?

    We didn’t kill the injuns cause they were heathens. We killed them for being on our land before we got here.

    Exactly. And let’s not forget that it was the Catholic church that did the whole “crusade” thing. I don’t think many Methodists or Baptists were involved in it.

    Reading the Qu’ran was a really strange experience for me. So many of the stories were Biblical stories, but then verses would be thrown in like the ones Incredipetey mentioned above.

    Like I said, it’s all just a harmless little josh from your friendly neighborhood muslim who hates you. C’mon kids! Grab a turban and join the fun! (For real, though: my kid went as Osama last year. We had this long black beard and no idea what to do…and suddenly, genius struck. He was a dead ringer, and does a fine middle eastern accent to boot. You should have heard the responses to “Give me candy, infidel, or I’ll sick my pet goat on you”. That costume rocked.

  11. September 30, 2005 at 10:08 am

    Um. I think that’s super bad taste.

    We found it super funny. Scored some major Smarties, too.

  13. September 30, 2005 at 2:43 pm

    This year are you dressing him up as a dead Osama? Cuz that would totally rock. It would also be in bad taste but it would rock more.

    It was all the murder and mayhem the Catholics caused that gave birth to the Protestant movement. And the Catholics think they’re so superior…

    I’m just not sure what exactly about being Osama for Halloween, Mardi gras, or a freaking church picnic could possibly qualify as “bad taste”. Hell, Osama’s rotting carcass, rolled in sesame seeds and trussed up in his mama’s burkha wouldn’t be in bad taste in MY book. Bad taste, I suppose, depends entirely on the opinion of the taster. Tube tops. Now THAT’S bad taste. Good idea, there, Warcry!

    This is why I think that all “holy books/writings” need to be destroyed. I will beleive god want to talk to me when and only when God actually talks to me .

    I don’t want some 3000 year old idea/book/scroll/stone tablet telling me what is wrong and what is right. If you don’t know in your heart then you need to be kicked to the edge of the hrd where the hyennas can kill you and pick your bones clean.

    Man’s interpretation of “Gods Words” has always and will always be controversial, and 99% wrong.

    Listen to your inner cricket, and have faith that when you die your body will feed worms that feed birds that feed cats and some quick monkeys, ect,ect.

    I think it’s bad taste to involve your children in your political views and to dress them up as someone the nation wants to kill. But hey, at least you got a lot of candy.

    Point taken. And yes, we did score some serious candy! Honestly, though…the entire neighborhood found it funny, and no one seemed put-off by it. If anyone had been offended, I’d have snatched my boy back in the house and put him in the Hitler suit like we originally planned. (hee. Juuuust kiddin’.)

    How do I get off the “Ambivilent” list? Do I need to spew rhetoric?

  19. October 5, 2005 at 10:02 am

    Yes, spew some rhetoric, and I’ll upgrade you to a more exciting list.

  20. October 6, 2005 at 3:42 am

    I’ve never spewed rhetoric in my blog and Incredipete has listed me as a Marxist, which is completely false. But then again, in his narrow, Crusader-like, Republican view I guess there is room for nothing in his world but Republicans and Marxists…

  21. October 6, 2005 at 12:24 pm

    And boring people.

  22. October 6, 2005 at 12:25 pm

    Wombat has, however, spewed rhetoric in my comments on many many occassions, thus earning him his non-boring categorization.

  23. October 6, 2005 at 2:11 pm

    I’m currently bragging to all my friends that I’m a Marxist.

  24. October 6, 2005 at 2:12 pm

    And maybe you could update, you lazy bastard.

  25. October 6, 2005 at 2:43 pm

    Jesus christ! fake illness to stay at home and read blogs and I find out that Incredipete is lazy and hasn’t updated…Fucking thanks a lot I coulda done this at work.

  26. October 6, 2005 at 3:03 pm

    Sorry gang. I’ve been out for a week with tonsilitis, and your insults fall on deaf ears, because I’ve got VICODEN, BEE-ITCHES!

  27. October 6, 2005 at 3:38 pm

    You fucking suck! I’m down to my last one and a short quart of whiskey….Kick down Bee-otch!
