    So I guess the 1400% increase in rape, sexual assault and other sex related crimes that accompanied the Muslims into Europe is false then.

    Or you know the terrorist attacks that happen almost everyday in Europe since the immigrants moved in or the hundreds of videos of the peaceful immigrants acting out in violent outrages and attacking not only innocent people but also police, soldiers and police buildings.

    O you know the fact that it was only after the Muslim immigration that Europe suffered some of the most bloody, barbaric and horrific terrorist attacks in modern history. France has been attacked so many times and with such severity that for the first time since World War 2 they were actually forced to close their boarder and erected a curfew for a while. Not since the Nazi's has that happened.

    Also if Muslims live peacefully and coexist with other religions then why did the Muslims start the crusades a several hundred year war by invading the Christian middle east and converting Christians by the tip of the sword and making a bloody trail heading towards Europe with the intent on conquering and converting every part of it?

    And if they are so tolerant and accepting then why has every Jew and Christian in the middle east either been ran out or killed? The middle east has one of the lowest Christian populations in the world, and one of the lowest populations of Jews outside of Israel and almost no gays? Also since 2015 the Christian population of the middle east has been steadily dropping. In fact in most of the major Arab nations like Iraq and Syria the Christian population has almost compeltely vanished altogether.

    Did you know that Arab Christian immigrants who came into Europe along with the Muslim immigrants can't even stay in the refugee camps with other Muslims because they fear for their saftey and lives because the Muslims in those camps threaten to kill and hurt them among other things.

    3- In Islam, “…if any one killed a person, it would be as if he killed the whole of mankind; and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole of mankind…” - The Holy Quran (Chapter Five, Verse 32)..

    Gosh well then Muhammad killed mankind tens of thousands of times over then because he waged over 65 military campaigns, attacks and raids on his enemies during his time as a prophet.
    Is this still revelant?

      Again that's kind of funny considering that Muhammad actually instructed his followers on how divide the treasures that they seized in war from unbelievers. Muhammad himself insisted on a 20% share for himself.

    No I knew most all of these, although some of those passages are negated via the law of aborogation. No need to try and make the religion look all peaceful though. The bible is just as horrific
  • Prochto
    Muslims dont believe in the bible or the Torah , they just say they believe , but when people ask them why they dont read the bible and practice what it says , they say "We believe in the original bible , the current bible has been changed"

    1-5. Ok I knew those well. But 7 and 8, lololol
    They have raided, pillaged and forced people to convert. And they are still killing in the name of Allah.
    Living in a country that has 178million Muslims, I have seen a lot.
  • Iraqveteran666
    That's true. If only they had accepted the Jews right to exist in their homeland free from the rule of Islam.

    What about abrogation? Aren't the more violent verses in the later chapters? Are there not contradictions in the Quran?
  • John_Doesnt
    I knew those things. None of them changed my opinion of Islam, but I already knew most of them.

    "In Islam, Muslims believe in Jesus Christ, Moses, and all the prophets, in addition to the Bible and Tora".

    No Muslim believes in Jesus Christ because in first place he is not a prophet , he is the son of God and our lord and savior

    "Muslims live with other religions in tolerance and peace in all over the world except when the media and policy play evil roles and start lying in order to introduce Muslims as bad people. Remember, if the billion and a half Muslims were terrorists, there will not be any other religion in the world because they will finish everybody in one day. But they are NOT"

    Sure, Muslims that lives in western countries (most are secular countries) has an open mind, those who live in Muslims countries to be honest they´re close minded, they don´t even tolerate other religions.

    At last a sensible response. All we see in the media is Muslim extremist have done this that and what ever. I don't see any Muslim extremists just extremists. It is my belief religion, has and is misused to justify the most horrendous violence imaginable. It is a stupid person that would think religion is at fault! Go and take a good look through history how different religions live happily alongside each other until some evil sod with his/her own agenda starts slinging the dirt. Its called divide and conquer. Ill give you a few to start with Bosnia. Northern Ireland.

    Can I have bacon if I become Muslim?
    • DareYouAsk

      No, ask a doctor about bacon's harms. that's why it is prohibited in Islam, even alcohol too.

    • OfDeath

      Just having it very rarely doesn't hurt.
