I wonder if they tried to find any mentioning of Jerusalem. ;)

I’ll go out on a limb and risk being assused of being a racist, bigot, homophobe, etc., etc., by saying there probably aren’t any references to peace and love in the Koran, despite what our newly-admitted Muslim President says.

9:29 "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the people of the Book (the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya [tax on non-Muslims] with willing submission and feel themselves subdued."

Doesn't sound very peaceful to me, but hey, what do I know?

There is nothing peaceful about Islam, and the Koran is merely their playbook for world domination. No peace necessary.

note also that male and female we cretaed you is pretty much a blatant ripoff of Genesis:

27So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God

he created him;

male and female

he created them.

28God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and increase in number;

So Islam was copying a bunch of things from the beginning.

Very telling he couldn’t find a peace quote from the Koran.

Also, why did he use the Talmud along with the Koran and the Bible. The Talmud isn’t the word of God, it’s more comparable to the Federalist Papers or something like that. It doesn’t really fit in with 2 Holy texts.

No wonder since he made so many misinformed statements regarding Islam’s contributions to the world ... he surely could have made one up ....

So? They’re all about how much Allah loves you when you kill non-believers.

Did TOTUS give the speech? I could say I missed it but I can’t stand to look at him let alone his reading style.

I found it interesting about all the wrong history in his speech in Egypt....is his young speech writer purposely trying to make a fool of him? We know Zero lies every time he opens his mouth, but he didn’t write that speech.

Obama’s speech writer is not very well educated. Seems to know little history. Either Obama is as ignorant as his speech writer, or he does not read his speeches ahead of time.

Heh... no shocker there. I guess Jerusalem must be “the city that must not be named” as far as the Koran is concerned.

No less an authority than George W Bush used to say that Islam “is the religion of peace”. It must be true.

There is no peace in the Koran to find , only submission to Muhammad ... Muhammad was very much like John F’ing Kerry’s infamous Ghengis Khan ,, he just invented a religion to wrap his conquests up in.. and to ensure his work would continue.

There's been a mistake! Islam is not the religion OF peace.

It the religion AT peace (with it's violent doctrines and history).

” There is nothing peaceful about Islam, ..”

Uh oh.
You do realize that you have just violated an Obama dictum ??!!

Obama declared in Cairo that part of his oath of office requires him to “ fight “ negative stereotypes of Islam worldwide.
Methinks that Obama’s retaking of the oath of office, where the good Christian could not find a single Bible in the entire White House-
may have been via a Koran.

Obama’s speech in Cairo:

“And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States
to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam
wherever they appear,”

Our Muslim president does not consider it part of his oath to fight negative stereotypes of the United States, our military, Republicans ,Christians or Jews.
Just Muslims.
