XVII/17. And when WE intend to destroy a township, WE command its people who live in comfort to adopt the way of righteousness but they transgress therein, so the sentence of punishment becomes due against it, so WE destroy it with utter destruction.For a more complete listing of Quran scripture that support Terrorism please click here: Versus of Mohammed against peace.( http://www.truthwaylife.com/reality/islam/koran2.html )
VII/97-99: Are the people of the townships then secure from the coming of Our wrath upon them as a night-raid while they sleep? Or are the people of the townships then secure from the coming of Our wrath upon them in the daytime while they play?
IX/5: Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
These scripture are used to address the Western lifestyles and actions to demonize and justify terrorism against the US and Israel. They call it Jihad, A holy war. Unlike the IRA and other terrorist organization the Muslim terrorist uses scripture and religious superiority to justify suicide Missions. The IRA and other do no commit suicide in the name of ALLAH or any other God to kill innocent people who they don't know and have never seen. All terrorism is reprehensible but Jihad is particularly odious because It is done in the name of GOD. While the Quran puts limits on this "Jihad" war that are ignored by these Islamic terrorists even main stream Muslims support the struggle in certain cases.
Like Christianity*, Islam permits fighting in self-defense, in defense of religion, or on the part of those who have been expelled forcibly from their homes. It lays down strict rules of combat which include prohibitions against harming civilians and against destroying crops, trees and livestock.This is why they support the Palestine Muslims in their hatred and terrorist acts. Some main stream Muslim blame our support of Israel and other Policy that "Caused the" World Trade Center Atrocity.(http://www.truthwaylife.com/reality/islam/whytheyhate23.html) I would remind them that there are many Palestine Christians as well who lost their homes but they do not form hate squads and school their children to hate Israel. I would also remind them that the Jews themselves are a displaced people. I would remind them that even as we speak Muslims Policy are displacing people in India, Indonesia, Algeria and Nigeria. Should the US then declare HOLY WAR against them?
TOP TEN MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT ISLAM By Huma Ahmad*Note: no where in Christian scripture does Jesus encourage fighting even in self-defense. In fact we are told to turn the other cheek and many martyrs have done so and died. Christians depend on the protection of God as he sees fit to defend us.
The answer is NO. We should use the common ground of good and the fact that we worship the same God of peace. Tolerance and respect for each others life styles. Doing Good works, Good deeds and speaking Good words is the true HOLY WAR. Islam has called America "the Great Satan".Nevertheless America has helped the Muslim against Serbia and punished this "Christian" country (and I say that loosely). The "Infidel" America has given tons of money and food to Muslim Countries even when there are Super rich Muslim states that give very little and virtually nothing to non-Muslim countries.
Now is the time for people of the book to pitch in and help rid the world of the Muslim gone Mad! Now is the time to teach Muslim tolerance and for them to listen to Mohammed.
"If they seek peace, then seek you peace. And trust in God for He is the One that heareth and knoweth all things." (Quran 8:61)Sadly I fear that they will not join in living together in true peace. Only in peace on their terms. Where we all have to have beards or put on veils and pray and worship God as they do.They want us to worship ALLAH on their terms and their way and they are not willing to accept compromise or reason. They are ruled by their rules! They believe only Muslim are superior and the only blessed of GOD.
God BLESSED AMERICA, Shariffa Carlo, with Christianity, a religion of love, charity and tolerance for all, even you. It is sad that when we try to honor Muslim achievements you turn it into "How far we have fallen from that "best of Statures" in which Allah created us" I wonder after the WTC atrocity who is the crow and who is Peacock? Our peace has no strings. Even our enemies are eating our food. The tali ban, the children of the terrorists, and their families are eating our food. "We love our enemies even though they despiteful use us that we may be children of our father who is in heaven." (Mat 5:44,45)
Please Read Allah Bless America - With Islam By Shariffa Carlo
You do not have to worry Shariffa, while in the heat of passion some Americans will make threats just as Muslim do. They will not carry them out. They will not board some Airplane and destroy Mecca. No, We will continue to deliver food to the starving Muslims in Afghanistan and try and bring the fanatics that you cannot control to justice. Yes my Muslim friends God blessed America with Christianity. I am proud to be an American!
Now my Muslim friends. Perhaps it's time to work out your own personal relationship with God. He will write his laws upon your heart. Not my laws, not the churches laws, not some religion or government. Allah himself will talk to you through the Holy Spirit that you might know His truth and His truth shall set you free!! Free from hypocrisy. Free from hate. Says Jesus:
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.Just click here to begin your wonderful relationship.Click on the cross
