After reading a lot about Islam and Muslim behaviour all over the world, I came wonder if Islam is realy the peaceful religion many Muslims claim.
The quran makes it clear that Muslims must not tolerate non-believers or people of other religions:
"Let not believers make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful - he that does this has nothing to hope for from Good - except in self-defense. God admonishes you to fear Him: for to God shall all return."
Quran 3:28; "The Imrans," Dawood, p. 52
"Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate."
Quran 9:73, "Repentance," Dawood, p. 198
"Muhammad is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another."
Quran 48:29, "Victory," Dawood, p. 514
"Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their number. God does not guide the wrong-doers."
Quran 5:51, "The Table," Dawood, p. 116
Then, Muslim leaders also publicly intice hatred towards other people:
"Eleven things are impure: urine, excrement, sperm...non-Moslem men and women...and the sweat of an excrement-eating camel."
(From The Little Green Book, Source: Harwood's Mythology's Last Gods, 175)
It is also clear that Islam (the same as Judiasm and Christianity) do not respect women at all. The religion disrespects woman to such n exten that I can not believe that there are still woman in that religion:
"Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please."
Quran 2:223, "The Cow," Dawood, p. 34
"Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them."
Quran 4:34, "Women," Dawood, p. 83
"A male shall inherit twice as much as a female."
Quran 4:11, "Women," Dawood, p. 77
Book 11, Number 2142: Sunan Abu Dawud
Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.
Abu Dawud 11:2142
