Lol...I wouldn't be surprised if they did...but I sure hope not.
I'm confused about Islam. The Quran claims it is the religion which will bring peace, however there are many references in the quran to killing people such as Jews and 'non-believers.'
The most brutal, yet infamous example is the Hindu holocaust which spanned around 800 years. Between this time Muslim invaders systematically killed an estimated
120 000 000 (that is not a type fault it really is 120 million) Hindus, Jains and Buddhists. Universities were torn down, religious statues were defiled and made into steps and made into toilet seats. Hindu and Buddhist monks were made into slaves, and Im not even going to go into what the women were used for.
Why? Why did they carry out these atroucious and barbaric acts? Because Allah told them too.
"I have been commanded by Allah to fight the unbelievers until they believe in Allah and His prophet and follow the laws of Islam. It is only then that the safety of their lives and property may be guaranteed." (Sahih Tirmzi, Vol. 2: 192)
And why should they annihalate the non believers? The Quran explains this point too.
"God has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of paradise; they fight in the way of God; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise; binding on God.... And who fulfills his covenant truer than God? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him that is the mighty triumph..." (Repentance: 192)
So it is the promise of heaven or paradise which incites them. It is not at all necessary that the non-Muslims need have wronged the Muslims, for them to be attacked by the Muslims. The "crime" that the non-Muslims do not believe in Islam is enough for the Muslims to attack the non-Muslim.
I would like to know why so many people were forcefully converted and killed by the sword. Are there no moral codes in the Quran which stopped these barbarians?
Lord Jesus taught tolerance, did Muhammed?
Jihad is not a new concept. It has been happening for 100's of years, solely in the name of Allah, and innocent people have died at the hands of Muslims who claim to be Allahs servants.
Islam is always claiming to get the wrong end of the stick, however what people say about Islam is nothing compared to the suffering they have put the Hindus and Buddhists through.
I would just like to add that I have never heard a Muslim be apologetic or apologise for these actions on behalf of the Islamic world, and I doubt that they are going to start now...
