it is easy to pick out the parts that back your own reasoning, but if you take the scriptures as a whole your argument falls apart, Mathew 24: 14 points out the good news will be taught in all the inhabited earth. the trouble with islam and the teachings of mohamed is, they are the opposite of what Jehovah wants, so you will find any way to contradict them, every time the Bible shows the koran is false you say the Bible is a forgery or it is a fraud, so you don't have to change your ways. Sad really!
The Bible is false and full of fraud and forgery, taffman. I can see that you have not really read it.

Britain is no way the greatest country it is a just a shadow of USA and Australia, a place where rejects from Africa, India and Pakistan go. And yes you are right every muslim country is a shit hole and that is solely because they are muslim, nobody else is responsible but them. This fact is witnessed in Iraq (particularly Iraq), Afghanistan, Libya, Syria etc and its all because they are muslim, its nobody else's fault but them. If you didn't realize by now that I was being sarcastic then you are proving them right that you truly have the lowest IQ.

It`s a primitive and vile religion, what to undertand here?

What people really must understand is that, acordingly islam, all none muslims are infidels, which are enimies of muslims.
Some (the huge bulk of muslims I believe) simply ignore this, yet islamic biggots take it for granted that any none muslim is their enimy. It wouldn`t be so bad, if islam were none agressive religion, yet it is extremely agressive. The jihad that Mohammad declared on all infidels was never over. Islam allows no peace with infidels, only truce which should not last longer than 10 years. Taking into account all the written above, small wonder that Hitler loved islam so much.

That boshop seem to need to better understand islam himself. If he does and supports muslims he is a MORON.

As for you, an average British is also dumb and his/her IQ is about 20 at the most. And I am not kidding.
Your post affirms my conclusion.
Please, why don't you tell everyone your spectacular reasoning?

I have read the Bible and studied it for many years and found it to be the true word of God. But as I say if you were to do the same then you would have to change your thoughts, deeds and lifestyle, so it is easier to pore scorn on the Bible than to change.

The Jewish religion is just as hateful towards non-Jews. Islam does not have a monopoly on hate in this world.

The only thing you can do with religion is ASSIGN IT SECOND PLACE NEXT TO HUMANITY and get to know the nearest asian and speak to him as an equal even if hes a religious prick sometimes...
Works fine and you learn respect for each other as individuals..

A muslim following Mohammed's instructions on a dog...

Actually, no. He didn't quite follow Mo's instructions, because he didn't kill the poor thing.

I have also read and studied the Bible and have found it to be false and full of forgeries.

I have been showing absurdities and forgeries in the Bible. It is nothing but a collection of tales and it misquotes Jesus.

You can discuss with me, if you like and I will show you misreports, misquotes, forgeries and lies.

In all fairness, it could easily be said that the religious texts of most major religions contain misreports, misquotes, forgeries and outright lies. That is easily true for just about every religion on the face of this planet.

Particularly the Abrahamic religions like Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Most of the readers here really don't understand why you have it in for the "New Testament" in particular. Especially seeing as it is far more peaceful than the Talmud and the Quran which are "vicious" in comparison.

Grow in understanding?

We've been there done that tried it and it didn't work.

People are sick of Muslims at this stage, that's the view of the people on the streets, the ''understanding'' ship has sailed, the soft touch approach has failed. We're fed up.

Don't waste your breath anymore, we don't want to understand you.

We don't want to know about you.

That ship has sailed.

Islam is a forgery.

Anyway we don't care about Islam in the west, we just don't want it here, it's not our culture, we don't want it, it means nothing to us, it's worthless.

Islam is like any other organized religion, their problem is the militant fanaticism and resistance to reformation.
