We didn't invade *Islam*. Secondly, Islam's history is one of violence, conversion by the sword, nearly everywhere it has spread. Apostasy from Islam is punishable by death according to Sharia which is observed in many Islamic nations. no... it's not violent! Have you ever heard of "The Crusades"? LOL From: "olliesedwuz@...

It is a BS argument to begin with, the crap about Islam being an innately violent religion. For one thing, WE invaded THEM. Imagine this scenario - A well trained force of overwhelming military might begins bombing Britain, landing ground forces, and exterminating the populace. Martial law is declared, and freedom along with any civil rights vanishes. Then when you strike back, the occupying army blames your religion for your "emotional" reaction. Pretty f'ing sick, if you ask me. Demonic even. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <s3raphita@...> wrote : Suppose I were to say to you: "If you see a group of Germans you should a toss a grenade into their midst and let them share it out between them." Would not that be a vile piece of advice? But if you were a G.I. about to land on a Normandy beach in 1944 could that not be just the sort of advice to perk you up before the attack? A lot of Mo's sayings could be (possibly) excused on the grounds that Muslims were engaged in a war with Jews and infidels. The problem is that we are talking about a struggle a long, long time ago and many Muslims don't seem to realise that the connected world we now live in is nothing like seventh-century Arabia. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <hepa7@...> wrote : The Quran's Verses of Violence http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx The Quran's Verses of Violence http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx A sampling of violence in the Quran. View on www.thereligionofpeace.com http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx Preview by Yahoo The reasons are obvious and begin with the Quran. Few verses of Islam's most sacred text can be construed to fit the contemporary virtues of religious tolerance and universal brotherhood. Those that do are earlier "Meccan" verses which are obviously abrogated by later ones. The example of Muhammad is that Islam is a religion of peace when Muslims do not have the power and numbers on their side. Once they do, things change.
