    Does the religion of Muslim support violence?

    Many Muslims are turning into jihads and talibans. On the other side people claim that Muslim is s religion of peace. What exactly muslim is?

      Islam means submission, not peace, under the false belief war ends when all are Muslim. Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

    Islam does not mean peace - it means submission, as in slavery and servant.
    Yes, Islam calls for violence repeatedly in several hundred verses - everything after the Medina period is Mohammed saying kill those who won't convert or submit to second class status to Muslims with high taxes if they won't convert. And that's on top of Mohammed's example of leading wars specifically to spread the faith - a war Islam has led since, with Indonesia being the only major example of a nation converted by Muslim missionaries instead of converted by invasion and set up of Shariah law that gives you many reasons to convert to Islam from higher status in court to the right to own weapons for self defense.
    Mohammed called for death of his critics and praised those who killed his critics, including a poetess killed in her bed surrounded by her sleeping children.
    Mohammed personally killed infidels, non-Muslims, who wouldn't become Muslim, and he's held up as the perfect man.
    He called for war until all the world converted to Islam, as well as death penalties for those who converted under fear of death and went back to their first faith. This is the origin of Islam's death to apostates rule.

      These lines will really provoke the young minds. Terror groups will take this as an advantage.

    Tamara seems a bit angry. Just as with Jesus, we do not have any prophesies from Muhammad just testimonials of other people. Those of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John were accepted because they told the story of Jesus without challenging the use of religion for power and control which was big in Mohammed's day. Christianity was adopted by the state for this purpose. Islam was created specifically for use by the state after Mohammed's death. The strength in both religions is that they are accessible to all people regardless of wealth, rank or position. The barbaric and violent nature of the Arab tribes existed before written history and was a fundamental necessity in unifying all the Arab tribes and thus written into this new faith. After a few decades of unity and violent expansion Islam fractured into the quasi-religious quagmire we know today.

      Did prophet Mohammed preach violence of any kind?

      Exegesis are what we have in Christianity and Islam. Muhammad was undoubtedly very wise and of pure intent. His teachings, or prophecies were geared toward laws to create peace among the Arab communities. Some violence was advocated.

    Well, yes most of the terrorist organisations bear the flag of Islam and proclaim themselves to be Islamic but the religion doesn't promote violence. It's a religion of peace. If one reads the Qur'an, one will find that it doesn't advocate or support violence against the innocent. Much like the Old  Testament it does talk of wars and fights, but doesn't ask the followers to kill. The word 'jihad' itself means 'struggle', the most important form of jihad as mentioned in the Qur'an is the struggle with self. One shall give up one bad practices such as alcoholic, overindulgence in sexual activities, lying, hurting the weak, and such other modern day social evils.

    The terrorists use the name of the religion but them using it doesn't make the religion bad, does it? The religion is being misunderstood and thwarted by them for personal good. In order to comment about Islam one should spend a little amount of time studying it, only then can one have an unbiased opinion about the same.

      infidels or Kafir are not considered innocent and violence against them is advocated in the re-taking of Muslim lands. The problem is how do you establish legitimate religious sovereignty apart from war.
