    This is how children in the Arab Muslim world are taught to treat the non-believers and the Jews.

    Beware!!! This is extremely graphic. but this is the true face of Islam!!!

      How could that happen ? Since their parents were treated badly by the non-believers and the jews. But, have you seen the condition out of Arabic land ? Totally different.

        That is cause there are no other religions except Islam in Arabia... they have all been slaughtered or converted.

        Nice of you to throw up the country which has completely wiped all others from existence in their land.

        Excellent spin!

            Momo and allah slaughtered the inhabitants of that land and instituted full Islamic Law per allah and Momo's whims. So go sling that on someone who does not know all about your allah and supposed prophet.

            A very complete and accurate account reads, and is linked below...

            To say there is not compulsion in Religion is to make a liar out of your prophet... which he is anyway, but this proves it...

            ---"He (Muhammad) said: "Woe to you, Abu Sufyan, isn't it time that you recognize that I am God's apostle?" He answered, "As to that I still have some doubt." I (Abbas) said to him, "Submit and testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is the apostle of God before you lose your head," so he did so. (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, p. 547)"----


            Battles For Arabia...

            These battles were not self-defence, they were offensive battles whose aim was to spread the Islamic empire and the rule of Muhammad. This was missionary warfare and violent jihad.

            Throughout this period of warfare, Muhammad's teaching was still very important. He inspired his soldiers to fight with the promise of paradise. For those who fought there was the promise of forgiveness, status, virgins, expensive clothes, watered gardens with abundant fruit, rivers of wine, milk and honey, slave boys and beautiful houses. Consider these verses from the Qur'an:

            O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. (Qur'an 61:10-12, Al-Hilali & Khan)

            This is the similitude of Paradise which the godfearing have been promised: therein are rivers of water unstaling, rivers of milk unchanging in flavour, and rivers of wine -- a delight to the drinkers, rivers, too, of honey purified; and therein for them is every fruit, and forgiveness from their Lord (Qur'an 47:15, Arberry)

            Lo! those who kept their duty will be in a place secure amid gardens and water-springs, attired in silk and silk embroidery, facing one another. Even so (it will be). And we shall wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes. (Qur'an 44:51-54, Pickthall)

            Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing. (Qur'an 78:31-33, Arberry)

            Perfectly We formed them, perfect, and We made them spotless virgins, chastely amorous, like of age for the Companions of the Right. (Qur'an 56:34-35, Arberry)

            And there go round, waiting on them menservants of their own, as they were hidden pearls. (Qur'an 52:24, Pickthall)

            There wait on them immortal youths. (Qur'an 56:17, 76:19, Pickthall)

            Those Muslims who did not fight for Muhammad were not equal in status to those who did: ----(thus the praise upon all Muslims lips for the Muhajideen)----

        There is no proof for all what you say. No other religion manage to stay in Arab land for Allah bless that land, and all false doctrines coming to that land are rejected by all people in that land. You deserve to be frustrated because of this condition. Until the doomsday, there will no coofeeroon manage to touch Makkatul Mukarramah. Allah has guarantted that matter.

    This is not the truth of Islam, and the fact that you would say that it is merely points out your lack of understanding.

    In every religion there are zealots who twist their religion's teachings, and who directly go against the teachings of their god by spreading fear, violence, torture, and death. This is true for Christians, Muslims, Jews, and any other religious group you can think of. The fact that a group of people do these things, does not in any way change what the ACTUAL teachings of the religion are.

    The fact of the matter is that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share the same roots. If you ACTUALLY want to understand something about Islam, read the Qu'ran, and get to know some people who practice.

    There are plenty of videos that Muslims (or anyone) could post showing the kind of blasphemous and dangerous indoctrination that Christian children receive.

That is an absurd thing to do, trying to equalize that to Christianity indoctrinating a kid. you don't know a thing about Christianity if that is what you think, or as I said Islam.

      And I have read the Qu'ran and a'Hadith lady many times, so why dont you go read it. In the correct format, not the one they sell you.

      But you don't even have a clue the Qu'ran you buy is falsely put together. HA Get real.

        If you think that zealous Christians are not into violent indoctrination, just do some research about who invented the most well-known torture devices in the world. Unfortunately, we don't have any videos of that time, but there's plenty of history. Look up the Children's Crusade. Would you call that the truth of Christianity?

            I know quite enough about both of those, thank you, and I have Muslim friends and co-workers. They're not psychotic zealots trying to behead people who don't agree with them. Nor, I would argue, are the majority of Islamic people.

              ....and if they actually controlled the hotheads who are psychotic zealots trying to behead people then we may have grounds for seeing an amicable co existence, however they are NOT speaking out against these psychotic zealots trying to behead people, for fear of reprisals, and these psychotic zealots trying to behead people are the ones taking over mosques and teaching the young men that being psychotic zealots trying to behead people is the correct and ONLY way to follow their god.

              Christians (and I don't mean token Christians, I mean Holy Spirit filled believers) don't have a problem with co existence with anybody, neither do the Jews, as long as people leave them alone and don't try to 'push them into the sea' they will be peaceable.

              I have never seen any news headline where Christians went and burnt down a mosque having locked all the women and children inside, whilst hacking the men to death outside...

      "In every religion there are zealots who twist their religion's teachings, and who directly go against the teachings of their god by spreading fear, violence, torture, and death."

      Care to qualify this in regard to the Christian faith?

      I don't recall any Christians teaching their children to behead folk, and I am quite sure that if that ever happened, it would be blasted all over every media outlet in the world.

      In reality, most zealots cause problems for non zealots by trying to enforce the teachings of their god or sacred books, rather than 'twist' them.

      The Quran is clearly NOT written by the same author as the Torah and the Bible is.

      It does contain ALL of the texts that enable the fundy Muslims to justify their murderous and barbaric attacks on 'infidels' and moderate (as in luke warm) Muslims at will.

      The avowed aim of Islam is to conquerer the world by force if need be, and institute Sharia law.

      Now tell me where these things fit into the Torah and the Christian bible, how they concur or even could be said to fit in with what those book state.

      One of the BIGGIST lies at this moment in time is to say Islam is no threat to the western way of life.

      It is, and if the Muslim 'street' ever get their way, the cosy liberal intellectual philosophy's that try to delude the public will be silenced by whatever means and ALL of us on this forum would be in submission or dead, and probably headless.

                  OK, so far I am on page 15 of the study, and I have not found anything I disagree with, though I suspect we may be reading it though differing filters.

                  One quote:

                  "Beginning at least with Constantine’s conversion, the followers of the Crucified have perpetrated gruesome acts of violence under the sign of the cross.

                  Over the centuries, the seasons of Lent and Holy Week were for the Jews a time of fear and trepidation; Christians have perpetrated some of the worst pogroms as they remembered the crucifixion of Christ for which they blamed the Jews. Muslims too associate the cross with violence; crusaders’ rampages were undertaken under the sign of the cross.

                  However, an unbiased reading of the story of Jesus Christ gives no warrant for such perpetration of violence."

                  The last sentence shows the truth.

                  I warrant that IF all Muslims were to agree to adhere to the words of Christ, no further suicide bombings or beheading would be happening, and conversely if all Christians were forced to adhere to the words of the Quran, violence would prevail.

                  Let me explain my understanding of what Christian needs to do to be called a believer in Christ:

                  First, read the Word of God.

                  Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you.

                  Third believe the Word of God.

                  Fourth, act on the Word.

                  The above came from the mouth of Smith Wigglesworth and I quote them in my hub "With all of my heart"... which also defines what I believe Christians should be observing.

                  Apart from that:

                  Be filled with the Holy Spirit.
                  Obey Christs' commands.
                  Always either bless or receive the blessing from all that you meet.
                  Matthew 25 in it's entirety.
                  Preach the gospel in season and out of season.
                  Check all things against scripture (be a Berean).
                  Watch and pray to be accounted worthy.
                  Understand that our battle is not against flesh and blood... but ... read Ephesians 6....
                  Don't judge, leave it to God.

                  There are obviously other aspects I would also consider relevant, but those would be a minimum need to see someone observing to say they were a disciple of Christ.

                  Constantine was someone who seized the opportunity to kidnap the name of Christ and create a false religion from it, I bear no responsibility or affiliation to any of the acts carried out in those circumstances.

                  I came to faith 17 years ago, I will accept any argument since then, but as for Constantine, all the Popes, Luther, Calvin and the rest, I have no link to them, my 'bloodline' is found in the remnant who have been hidden in the wider 'church' since it started and especially since it was hijacked and corrupted.

                  Those remnant have been frequently declared heretical and often killed for their intransigent holding to the words of Christ and refusal to bow the knee to traditional orthodox religion, and probably will be again in my lifetime, but they carry the torch of the testimony, and pass it to those who will take it from them.  Sometimes that torch has rested where those who carried it were killed, and needed to be found again, but it has been kept alight by God, and the remnant have always been shown where it lies.

                  It will burn until it is handed back to Christ on His return.

    Well this is what the good books say.
    Qur’an 4.89 They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) 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.

    If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.   (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

    The Qu'ran I read in the correct Chronological order to begin with. because there are tricks to reading it.

    But I will clearify them for you.

    1- You must take into consideration the, "Law Of Abrogation", or, "Naskh" = Obliteration, or "to obliterate". That entails knowing the chronological history of the Qu'ran itself. To know which Surah over-rides, or obliterates another, (others), of the former Surahs. Also, whether or not that instance of abrogation over-rides a specific, or general verse, or former command or commands.

    No,... one does not have to be a Professor of the History Of Islam itself. You simply have to know where to look. I will give you the most, in my opinion, accurate historical order of the Surahs, "chapters within the Qu'ran", and a couple of sources to verify this information. And of course the Qu'ran itself speaks volumes in regards to the psychology of Islam itself. Which one could rightly define as, "Tribal".

    After all, it was written in the 7th century A.D. by an Arabic Patriarch in a very misogynistic time period. "Tribal", is used here not in a derogatory way, but as a classification for psychological definition, and way of life. A Mentality. (T.M.)

    Here is the Chronological order as set by Noeldeke through diligent research into the original sources of Islam.

    Chronologically, Noeldeke divides the Qu'ran into the first period in Mecca,... 96, 74, 111, 106, 108, 104, 107, 102,105, 92, 90, 94, 93, 97, 86, 91, 80, 68, 87, 95 103, 85, 73, 101, 99, 82, 81, 53, 84, 100, 79, 77, 78, 88, 89, 75, 83, 69, 51, 52,56,70, 55, 112, 109, 113, 114, 1.

    The Middle Period In Mecca,... 54, 37, 71, 76, 44, 50, 20, 26, 15, 19, 8, 36, 43, 72, 67, 23, 21, 25, 17, 27, 18.

    The Late Period in Mecca,... 32, 41, 45, 16, 30, 11, 14, 12, 40, 28, 39, 29, 31, 42, 10, 34, 35, 7, 46, 6, 13.

    And in Al'Madina2, 98, 64, 62, 8, 47, 3, 61, 57, 4, 65, 59, 33, 63, 24, 58, 22, 48, 68, 60, 110, 49, 9, 5.

    This information is by Noeldke, and there is readily available source material within his work and the work of, William St.Clair Tisdall, in his work, "The Original Sources of the Qu'ran", London 1905.

    And yes I am a Christian Earnest. I follow the Laws Christ set forth for us.

      Peter got chewed out for lopping of the soldiers ear when Christ was arrested, and Christ restored the ear on the spot.

      The disciples were told to not take a sword with them when they went to spread the gospel.

      I know you hate the bible, but please don't just attack it for the sake of attacking, your jibes don't wash with those who know the book, and you won't inflame believers by ranting.

      You have rejected the bible, that's fine, but for the rest of us who are actually quite content with the bible we have, warts and all, let us live with our belief and if you want to win souls for non belief, do it with your demonstrations about how well you live your life.

      That's OK. I do that sometimes also....

      Fine your text illustrates that you do not believe the bible or the words of Christ, so we know that you are not (by Christ's standards) a believer, which is also fine, but as such you cannot have been Holy Spirit filled.

      (Correct me if you are and I am wrong)

      Your 'understanding' of the bible will therefore be limited to the extent of your worldly education, which I see is extensive, and I do not doubt your intelligence or learning abilities....but the bible is a book which speaks differently to those who have been Spirit filled, than to those who have not.

        Thank you for your compliments!

        If you look back over my posts, and you will see I have not spoken about the truths of the Bible; I have spoken about the Christian religion as people have lived it throughout history. Believe it or not, I do believe what the Bible has to say, and I believe in Jesus and his sacrifice. I am capable of reading the Bible in both of its original languages (at least with help), and I contend I understand quite a lot of it. It is because I understand what the Bible says that I detest the *human* Christian church, I loathe the rantings of intolerance, and I abhor ignorance. I'm sure you're not a big fan of violence, hatred, and stupidity either. wink

        The subject at hand is not what the Bible ACTUALLY says (I agree, the message of Christ certainly does NOT espouse any kind of violence). The subject at hand is what people who call themselves Christians, and who have formed the modern *human* so-called Christian church, have done "in the name of God." It cannot be denied that the people of the *human* Christian church have committed (and still do commit) atrocities. The Christian faith as it has been practiced throughout history is a different thing from Christ's teachings.

        My original point was that there are zealots from each religion. These zealots DO NOT understand the true meaning of their religion, nor the messages of their messiahs, and yet through violence it is their messages that are overwhelmingly heard around the world. A lot of believers would like to think that the "Christian" church is exempt from this fact, when in reality, it is one of the worst for intolerant zealots, historically speaking. Whether we agree with what is written in the Bible or not, the fact is that leaders of the "Christian" church have acted exactly the opposite of how God wants His people to act, is undeniable.

        I hope you have a good evening! It's been good chatting, and I'll see you around.

            Not so, I'm constantly moving with the will of God and get updates and revisions all the time, and the bible will speak to me differently when I seek understanding about something even when reading the same verses as I read maybe years earlier.

            The fact is that Gods word is unchanging, but how He speaks to you through it is ever changing to meet the requirements of your situation.

            It's a living word and it will answer any question that pertains to what I should do or say, and will direct me to the correct answer to any situation.

            But (OBVIOUSLY) if one does not believe the word, it's just a book of old words written years ago.

            You gave Deborah your birth date and a commendation when she gave you a numerology reading that you felt was accurate, so you will trust things that you cannot understand, and believe them if they tell you what you want.

            Where do you think she got that 'insight' from? - I mean somebody worked out the numerology system to enable her to forecast your next years events, and tell you what last year held for you....there was SOME power at work there that I doubt you could quantify with science...

      mikelongposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      To begin with, anyone who isolates "Christianity", "Islam", "Judaism", or any other concept into some kind of whole is following a deluded path. No such singularities exist.

      Islam ranges from the esoteric Sufism to the four legal schools, with many different aspects of each being manifested in diverse places.

      Christian ideology and faith is based on both the Old and New Testaments for many Protestant sects, while only the the New is used for others...and then there are those who don't really use the Bible at all.... There is no set birth date of this "Christ", no core, unified system of worship or beliefs...
      The Christianity I was raised with differs from that of Pentacostals, Lutherans, Roman Catholics, Armenian Orthodox, Baptists, and Adventists...and all of these are different from one another.

      I tutor an Iranian-American youth who is also a Muslim. He attends a private-Presbyterian school nearby. While his teachers are careful to speak because of his presence, the perspectives of the class around him are biased against his faith, and still project Muslims as inherently violent, and link Muhammed to the "false prophet" imagery of the book of Revelations.

      I consider those youth to be in an indoctrination program.

      There is also a documentary that was filmed called "Jesus Camp." The link is here:

      Without the theatrics found in this video, I was raised to believe that my sect of Christianity was the only true message, and that I had to shut my mind off to the ideas of outsiders.....I can't think of any Christian sect that I've come across since that doesn't have that perspective blatantly or covertly.

      I came home from the Marines in 2003, and shortly after returning I found myself in a mall in Glendale, California.

      I woman walked up to me and started talking about a "young-person" conference that was going to be happening that weekend.

      I asked her specifically, and repeatedly, if this meeting had anything to do with religion or a religious organization, and she assured me continuously that no church or entity of the like was involved.  I was curious, so decided to go.

      When they came to pick me up (the woman came with another man that Sunday morning), they didn't like my casual attire, and wanted me to put on a shirt and tie.

      I again asked if there was any "Christian" hook or angle to this meeting, and both of them answered as before....

      I was beginning to get agitated with this whole situation, and refused to change...they made a phone call and then told me that everything would be fine and not to worry.  So, we left.

      Long story short....after all the frustation and lies they were taking me to their church...

      Yes, the building itself was a former boxing arena, but inside of it resides a church.

      Inside I witnessed a mostly Spanish speaking audience, most of older age, stamp their feet and clap their hands as the ministers told them about the money their parishoners would have to give them in order to fly their ministerial brothers around the country.

      I took off the tie that they had waiting for me at the church/arena door and walked out.......I refused to stamp my feet and clap...and some of the other churchmembers even stopped doing so too...

      All in all, it ended up that they were trying to use my "Marine" image to sway the youth in their congregation.

      As I waited to get picked up (I refused their ride home), and while the congregation ate, elder members of the church (white men by the way) kept coming out to try to get me to come with them....

      "You were in the know how to follow orders, don't you?"

      "You wouldn't follow your sergeant's orders?"

      My responses:

      "Are you my sergeant?"

      "How can you profess true faith in God if your core elite of this church are liars and deceivers?"

      I know many Muslims, but have yet to be treated with such disrespect, and, basically, stupidity.

      Three other notes before this overly long note is finished:

      For all that is said in the Quran, remember, Jesus is the most quoted person within it.

      Secondly, read "Camp of the Saints" and then think about how this imagery reflects on a Christian (Protestant) base.  What does it incite?

      Finally, when we think of "Western" philosophy, remember, it was from Arabic spread through the influence of Muslims that the pre-Renaissance "West" would learn of Socrates, Sophocles, Aristotle, of Algebra, and countless other things that have nothing to do with Germannic culture or society, which is largely what Western Europe has evolved from.

      "The bottom line in Christian brain-washing is, of course, fear (Cohen's seventh device: "Holy Terror"), which is used only when the believer is well "inside." This fear is grounded in the punishment awaiting Christians who fail to subjugate their human intelligence and will to the wishes of the god-talkers. Cohen asserts that the authors of the New Testament "deliberately contrived the portentous New Testament statements about horrors in the afterlife to be the worst eventualities of which the mind -- or at least the ordinary minds of those who would be rank-and-file believers -- could conceive."

        Axis of Islam: Verses of Hate

        “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth”

        --Omar Ahmed, Chairman of the Board of CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations), San Ramon Valley Herald, July 1998

        Or this.
        These liars shouldn’t let the Infidels access their war manuals! It is important to remember Mohammad had revelations depending on what was happening. For example, when not everyone was eager to do jihad, he would announce new revelations telling them Allah was pissed at them and would punish them. There are literally hundreds of verses in the Qur’an and Hadiths that are hate filled and vile. Literally too many to list them all as they would fill a book. They already do anyway, it's the Qur'an.

        "Liberal" view......people keep talking about ridiculous..

        Reality is that people professing Christianity perform acts of horrific violence and terrorism, as have those professing Islam...both behaviors are of the same spirit.....the intolerant....the groups who use bullying and fear to control over discourse and reason.....

        I am not "liberal"....I just know many Muslims.....I have studied independently various aspects of religious thought and law.....

        I want to play your game for you real quick and see if you can catch on to this....

        Now, I am going to first imagine Christianity....

        I know that, as opposed to an abstract thought or ideal, there is no one such entity, but for the sake of this exercise...what the heck...I'll pick Castillian Spain in the 15th and 16th centuries....

        Now, their version of Christianity will become the archetype for all.....

        1) How fair/correct is that?

        With that said.....the Church provided the religious justification for social and economic rule.....

        According to the society of that time, women do not exist as individuals. As Eve, they are solely the attachments of either their father, their husbands, or their husband's family.

        Let us say that we are women...for it is important to break out of our own selves in order to feel and understand this......

        We are married to, fortunate for us, a landed-elite. Now, that assumes that we ourselves are from elite stock...otherwise our lifestories are considered completely irrelevant...

        Now..we have wealth through our families, from marriage, and also through our own parentage...

        When Father dies....when husband dies we get nothing. We actually would be required to be married to someone else...say husband's brother, or some other male family member?  It really doesn't matter because you have no have no are property...and like good women in the Bible ("the Bible"...who collected these stories?) she has to shut her mouth, bow her head, and do her womanly duties.

        No independent role at all....   This is the Bible.

        This is Christianity.....

        2) Does this, to your mind TM accurately reflect how Christian societies around the world think, deep down when there is no separation between church and state?

        To finish my point, Muhammad's own wife was a personally wealthy widower... Women have status in the Quran, and in traditional, pre-Islamic culture in the Hejaz....

        Women can share in inheritance just as men, though not equally. It is the critical support of Muhammad's wife that really enabled him to spend the time to obtain his calling...if we are to believe the recorded histories....

        Christianity and Islam have both been used by elite forces to break down societies, and to establish control.

        From American missionaries running through the Ottoman Empire in the 19th and early 20th centuries to their Spanish counterparts erecting churches atop the ruins of the temples of the conquered in the Americas and Asia (and elsewhere) Christianity was spread to subdue peoples and affirm status for the new colonial elite....

        When Roman Catholic bishops were sent out to Clovis and Aethelbert they were establishing political linkages that would build a political and military foundation to protect the Roman elites and the lands they stored away under the guise of Church.

        simple terms....they wanted control.

        Islam was the first force to unite otherwise segmented Arabic-speaking people. As the Romans and Greeks before them, elites used the uniting force of Islam to control one of the most important economic points on the planet, the passage of the Silk Road from Asia into Europe...

        As Christian armies during the Crusades, armies led by Arab-elites (the Arab wealthy jumped into Islam just as their Latin and Greek counterparts did into Christianity) treated those who stood in their path least sometimes...but definitely not all the time.

        Armenia is an interesting historical petri dish....Now, the region had been split between the Romans and Parthian Persians in the late centuries BCE/early centuries CE (sorry I don't have it off the top of my head anymore). Armenians were Christian on both sides of this border.

        Their version of Christianity was different from Rome's, which put them in great conflict with the imperial power.

        The Parthian, and later Sassanian rulers were Zoroastrian, as Armenians originally were before conversion to Christianity.
        Some rulers were cruel, and would put Christians to death and destroy their churches, while others would be leniant, and let the clergy elect their leaders, perform sacraments, and collect tithes.

        When Muslim rule replaced the Zoroastrian and relieved the pressure of the Roman Catholic, Armenian Orthodox Christians were given great flexibility. They were not forced to convert, and as long as they paid their taxes and obeyed the laws they were fine. For long periods, before Turkic peoples entered Asia minor, Armenian elites even regained long lost autonomy. Though neighboring Muslims, and though even ruled by them, they were never forced to convert themselves, and held economic niches that enabled them great success until the Genocide.

        The Armenian Genocide, while reflecting Muslim hostility towards Christians, it is actually the hostility of American and Western European missionaries towards Armenian and Greek Orthodox communities within the Ottoman Empire that created this mess....I'll have to write more in a hub about this...

        My view is not liberal.........I think it just realizes the larger reality that others can tend to overlook, either because they don't know or because it doesn't suit their purposes.....

                    It is all general information in regards to abrogation, E.

                    It is common knowlege in Islam and anyone who really looks at Islam. If you want to find more on it, there is alot more on my hubs, including links and other info.

                    That is where the part your lookin  at is from, and it simply echoes what I have been telling you. The Qu'ran as it is formatted is not correct. Wow imagine that, and you found your own link to prove it to yourself. WOW

                    So what? you want the link, here. Siple answer. Not cheat'n here, the links are on my page, as I said.


                    Theres that one?... You want more I have plenty for you to study if you want them. Islamic Scholars and Juris Doctrate of Shari'a all agree abrogation is in the Qu'ran.

                    Here is another good resource,...

      I don't ignore the history of Christianity. But there is nothing in the New testament which preacher hatred or murder, unlike Islam.

      That is just a fact. Your inability to accept does not bother me nor does it concern me. not once have I attempted to prosylitize to anyone.

      But I will not lie about Islam to mollify your PC conscience.

      I won't,... NOT let Islam tell you the truth about itself.

      I cannot help it if it is an indefensable idiology of hatred, rape and slavery.

      And think about this fact while you read your Qu'ran seeking to defend the indefensable.

      According to some Muslim commentators, more than 260 verses of the Quran have been abrogated. Others concede only 5 verses while others deny there is any abrogation. Thus, there is no general agreement as to what all the abrogated verses are. This can become a point of confusion as sometimes, these abrogated verses deals with matters of life and death. For example, most scholars believe that the stoning verse for adultery for married persons, which was once in the Qur'an, has been abrogated from recitation, but remains in effect in the Sharia.

      The issue of abrogation is a very serious problem for the Qur'an and its claims for two reasons:

      1. If the Qur'an is the actual Word of God, then it is eternal and, is thus incapable of change. The abrogation problem suggests that the Qur'an was created, and cannot be the uncreated Word of God.

      2. If the Qur'an is the Word of God, it should be perfect and no verse can be superior to another.

      accusation of invention when a verse is replaced by another, an-Nahl 16:101.

      Allah removes what he wills, ar-Ra`d 13:39.

      brings one better or similar to replace it, al-Baqarah 2:106.
      This verse can cause quite a consternation. In the case of the Stoning Verse for example, there was no replacement (better or not). Neither was there any replacement for the Missing Bismillah, the Ibn Adam Verse, the Suckling Verse or the "Pleasing" Verse.

      forgotten, al-A`la 87:6-7.

      God can withdraw any revelation, Bani Isra'il 17:86.

      Every instance of abrogation is a problem for the doctrine of an unchanging God and should equally trouble thinking Muslims. For non-Muslims, however, the changing commands regarding the use of violence against non-believers are certainly the most relevant:


      Thats why I know anyone who has read the Qu'ran without this knowledge, does not know islam, and does not understand anything about Islam

            To me the word religion should be defined as a governmental type system of regulating Faith in God.
            The members of a particular denomination make up that institution but are not "THE" institution.
            Man made institutions are corrupt. That simple.

            I don't think that any of us can adequately express all of what we think and believe. This inability also causes many problems. Sometimes we are expressing the same feelings but doing so from a diffrent prospective.
             We then argue over the way that we are expressing "Our Truth"
          though we are in reality saying the same things.

             If you are looking at my house from the west, you would argue that there are no windows on my house. I, looking from the south will argue that there are lots of windows.
             We would both be correct and wasting a lot of time argueing.

    Actually that is not the case. What part of Constitutional government is Christian?  What part of representative (albeit not truly so) is Biblical?

    When the first Amendment forbids government intervention into religion, or the promotion of one religion over another, is this not separation?

    In fact, if one is to review a particular speech and conference then presidential candidate John Kennedy gave to Protestant audience the proof of such a separation is quite clear.

    The audience overall is afraid that Kennedy's being a Catholic would make him, and therefore the United States, under the authority of the Pope, being that this is an aspect of Roman Catholic thought.

    One man asked this in a is on youtube...

    Kennedy assured the collection of ministers, pastors, reverands, and the rest that he believed firmly in the separation of church and state, and that his being a Catholic would have no bearing on his duties as president.

    How much more clear can it be?

    Or do you only want it to be selectively correct to suit your place in time?

    If we had a Hindu or Muslim, or non-Christian person in general in office, would you still claim that there was no separation?

    My young nephew and niece have been attending an "international" school there; the "police" raided the school and removed the school work books which they said promoted Christianity and insisted that the school implemented an Islamic curriculum. Which basically means that these kids learn about the Koran for 70% of the time in class..
    The school started to object so they deported ALL of the teachers and closed the school!

    The engineers and the like I had working for me were poorly educated, the more "western" were happy to complain that they learned very little in school apart from the Koran!!

    Whether in the Talmud, the Bible, or the Quran, dispicable behavior is justified through "God's will"...

    For any person of these faiths to point to the flawed writings of another is ludicrous...

    Without the Talmud or the Bible there would not have been an Islam... 

    With this said, for all the violence that some wish to point out in the Quran, with the two former texts as its guide, how would the use of violence be considered wrong?

    Being that Muslims consider themselves the followers of Abraham, it makes sense that many beliefs are rooted in the Old Testament of the Bible.....for that is where he is located... 

    The New Testament of the Bible is nothing without the Old...  To believe in the New is the justify the Old...

    Therefore, the genocide that the Israelites wrought throughout Canaan (if we are to believe the stories)..the murdering, the killing of men women and children without mercy or recourse (all for the taking of land based on the will of God) are a cornerstone to Christian thinking... 

    Instead of physical conquest, Christians then turn it into imperialism of the soul...

    Check out the Church of God of Anderson Indiana... While my family was residing in Egypt, way back in the early 19 teens, these charlatans showed up on their "world tour"....scoping out the "mission fields" in order to assess how much physical wealth could be manipulated out of people in faraway lands...

    When I then look at the Armenian Genocide...when I then look to the civil wars that rocked Lebanon and the conflicts that have become the standard for "Middle East" political dysfunction I see Western Christians and their failed geo-political experimentation.....  Whether its supporting cronies like Saddam or Mubarak....or the propping up of minority regimes, like the small Shiite sect that oversees Sunni Syria (etc)..

    A Christian can work as hard as he/she can to wipe the two plus millenia of blood from his/her hands...but they will never wash clean...

    The "pot calling the kettle black" syndrome abounds...especially when coming from Mason...
