LOOK THE CHRISTIANS ARE VIOLENT - AND I CAN DO THE SAME WITH THE TORAH...BUT the reality is that we are creatures of God, and he created us and he gave us guidance to deal with all aspects of life tht we may face....and that includes what some deem as violence....and no....Islam does not condone wanton , unrestricted violence...but it recognizes violence and taxes and childbirth and food and etc etc etc....so to those who hate Islam., its unfortunate tht you do...but your hate will consume you before it consumes us...for God is the protector of those who have faith....and for my broters and sisters in islam, remember to love those things that god loves and hate those things tht god hates....dont let the kuffar disrupt what you have to do as a muslim...make salaah,,,,give zakat and sadaqah, fast and make hajj if you can...dont get caught up in shirk....and remember..everything we do is dawa....ad dawatusalaffiyah....give the call of our predecessors....
and how are the christians violent?

Since 9/11 I have made a study of Islam- it somehow seemed rather important to understand what exactly this religion was about. There is good in it. However, there are scriptures so vile, so ugly, so beyond unacceptable that they rival the OT. It should not have surprised me that many Muslims are not aware of much of the content of the Koran, Hadiths, etc. After all, how many Xtians are Bible-scholars? The pious (or furious) assurances from Muslims on how "peaceful" and "righteous" Islam is can be countered most effectively by quoting their own scriptures. Every atrocity committed daily by Muslims against Muslims and Infidels are not just permitted by their scriptures, but instructed. I keep a database; titled "women"; "science" and "war". When confronted by their own scriptures that plainly verify Islam's ugly reality, I get several typical responses: they either fade away, curse me and threaten, claim that the verse(s) mean something entirely different in Arabic (er- no) or that I am "lying", which of course is beyond lame since anyone can see for themselves.

I am agnostic and fairly neutral about comparing religions; I find all of them anachronistic and usually ridiculous if not dangerous and an impedance to peace, social justice, science and education throughout the world and the world's history. Mumbo-jumbo at best.
Xtistians have been quite capable of violence. As you are no doubt aware.
When Muslims remind others of this, the material and obvious point is that TODAY, Muslims are perpetrating almost unheard-of violence not just against their perceived infidel enemies, but against Muslims. Worse, in my opinion, is the endemic generational mayhem against women and children under five. Even the OIC has courageously exposed the effect of Islam on the hideously tragic morbidity/mortality statistics of women and children under five in the Islamic world compared to men and boys. Islam institutionalizes the abuse and neglect of female Muslims. They die. The overall effect is the poverty, ignorance, disease, illiteracy, violence and backwardness that keep the Islamic world, in spite of far stronger economies, ranking below some of the world's poorest nations.

Delicious irony, isn't it. Bet Mr. Rushdie isn't complaining about all that "Muslim outrage". He probably knows what the Muslims just don't get- that the west's PC appeasement of Islamism was a brief phenomenon inspired by genuine decency somewhat, and the need for oil and cheap labor mostly. More and more those ugly Muslim mobs will find that anything that they're against is likely to be enthusiastically supported by non-Muslims.
