From the koran: "Fight and slay the pagans [Christians] wherever ye find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush" (Surah 9:5)
How much clearer can it be? When will Americans get their heads out of the sand and recognize that islam is not a "religion of peace"? If it were, how can one explain why a Christian is "tortured every three minutes somewhere in the Muslim world"? That certainly does not sound peaceful to me. How many times does one hear about Christians persecuting Muslims? How about none, nada, zip?
Read from the American Thinker:
The epidemic of Christian persecution in Muslim countries
Ethel C. Fenig
"Proving once again that Islam is not a 'religion of peace' despite desperate insistence by former President George W. Bush (R) and President Barack Obama (D),
'Every three minutes a Christian is being tortured in the Muslim world, and in 2009 more than 165,000 Christians will have been killed because of their faith, most of them in Muslim countries, according to a human rights organization that is visiting Israel starting Sunday.
"Hamas digs up the bodies of Christians from Christian burial sites in the Gaza Strip claiming that they pollute the earth," said Reverend Majed El Shafie, President of One Free World International (OFWI), who will head a delegation of human rights activists, members of parliament from Canada and religious personalities.'
Furthermore, claims El Shafie in a report by Matthew Wagner in the Jerusalem Post,
'between 200-300 million Christians are being persecuted in the world, 80 percent of whom lived in Muslim countries and the rest in communist and other countries.'
For instance in Saudi Arabia, Christians--and those of other religions--cannot bring in their bibles, or holy books, or other religious symbols; in Egypt, Coptic Christians are routinely harassed, churches ransacked. Jews are not allowed in Saudi Arabia unless by rarely granted special permission (why would they want to go there?); by law Jews are not allowed to live in Jordan.
And yet, the politically correct mouth that the violent, terrorist Muslims are not typical of their faith although few Muslims stand up to denounce the evil that is being done in the name of Islam while many agree with the terror."
