Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Matthew 5:43-45 You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 5:38-39 You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also;
1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all.
1 Peter 2:20-23 For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have Gods approval. For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. He committed no sin; no guile was found on his lips. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he trusted to him who judges justly.
Luke 6:27-29 But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from him who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt.
Romans 12:17-21 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. No, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Matthew 10:23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes.
Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.
1 Corinthians 4:12 and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure;
2 Corinthians 12:10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Timothy 3:12 Indeed all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
Mark 11:25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Acts 7:59-60 And as they were stoning Stephen, he knelt down and cried with a loud voice, Lord, do not hold this sin against them.
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants would fight, that I might not be handed over to the Jews; but my kingship is not from the world.
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith; .
2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
It is also worth noting that when the "angel" visited Mohammed, Mohammed was afraid and remained that way. In the Bible, whenever anyone was visited by an angel of the Lord (Joseph, Mary, etc.), the very first thing the angel did was to assure them that there was nothing to fear and they were calmed. This would seem to indicate that whatever spirit visited Mohammed was satan or one of his demons, it WAS not an angel of the Lord.
Active vs. passive = slaughter
Committing 'Mohammacide' is part of the Muslim religion. There cannot be peace and Islam at the same time.
As has been oft said ...
Everything I need to know about Islam, I learned on September 11, 2001.
Mohammed: Piss be upon him.
As has often been written, the problem is not Islamic Fascism but Islam itself. based on the above passages from the Koran, I believe the fundamentalists are the ones who are correctly interpreting it.
Wow! Nice to have them both laid out side by side like that!
I'm all out of cheeks. Now let's go kick some ass.
I would say the pro facist media of the west has declared war on the wrong religon. The funny thing is they believe in the end the Muslim facists will leave them alone because "they are above the fray."
--yeah--practise that with Islam and you are dead---
I'm with you, L.
But I think we still need Pearl Harbor to happen if we expect much company. 911 apparently wasn't enough for some people who still deny that this is a religious war.
I'll paraphrase........If your ass won't move they may be an angel in the way
Real Prophets climb mountains to be closer to God. They don't crawl into holes to hear the hissings of the Serpent.
Stop your intolerance of the religion of peace! /sarcasm off
I'll go a step farther...the more I see and learn of this wicked religion, I'm not sure that Mohammad was not Satan himself incarnate.
Indeed Mohammed's first impression was that this apparition was a demon or a geni.
It was his wife who convinced him otherwise and this took her a considerable amount of time to do.
Excellent post, Meletus. And we all should probably remember Mother Teresa's words "Everything begins with prayer."
To paraphase another FReeper:
We will find out sooner or later
if Mohammad will return to a smoking crater...
Nowhere in the OT does it say to carry out war forever, or until all people are subjugated. It was always with a specific goal in mind, then it would stop.
You said, "and yet... is the Torah any less violent?"
I don't accept that comparison--although it is obvious Mohammed liked the OT better than the NT.
yeah--practise that with Islam and you are dead---
Turn your other cheek and you have just made it easier for them to carry out verse 47:4 of their Koran...
When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads [CUT OFF THEIR HEADS] and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly."
"if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also;--" Then if he strikes you again, kick him in the gonads. BBTD 8:20
In one of the first entries of the book, he writes from North Africa Nov 2, 1942:
"This mess is the best I have ever seen. I fear I shall get fat. I take lots of excersice each morning, including chinning myself and running in place four hundred and eighty steps (one quarter mile) in my cabin. In the morning, at battle stations, we put on rubber belts and tin hats, but as my battle station is my cabin, I don`t have to hurry. Then I go up on the flag bridge till it gets light and then have breakfast. Just finished reading the Koran - a good book and interesting.
Have been giving everyone a simplified directive of war. Use steamroller strategy; That is, make up your mind on course and direction of action, and stick to it. But in tactics, do not steamroller. Attack the weakness. Hold them by the nose and kick them by the pants."
Do you know why he admired the Koran? Because the Koran is a book of combat.
"Turn the other cheek"
The NT does not teach the spread of the gospel by means of violence. But I don't think it is wholly passivist (Rom 13:1-7; Acts 25:11). Jesus' teachings were addressed primarily at a personal relationship level. The use of duly authorized police and military in a defensive sense are approved (Luke 3:14).
Franklin Graham said it first and best: Allah is not the God of Moses since Allah had no son......
The good news is that Islam doesn't control earth's strategic real estate and never will. Neutralizing Islams big cheese imams will neutralize their entire population. It is the glorious plan of the chicoms to rule the remnant after we blow ourselves to kingdom come.
"It's in the Koran"
All that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy...
Yeah, different language, different time, different conditions, different idiomatic expressions. Best to leave the deconstructing to the German team unlocking what the Koran really says by reading it in its original language of Syriac-Aramaic.
The Seventh Imam!!!! The Twelvers are totally wrong.
Do not be mislead by the title of this article!
Read it through! A German scholar of ancient languages takes a new look at the sacred book of Islam. He maintains that it was created by Syro-Aramaic speaking Christians, in order to evangelize the Arabs. And he translates it in a new way. The author of the most important book on the subject - a German professor of ancient Semitic and Arabic languages - preferred, out of prudence, to write under the pseudonym of Christoph Luxenberg. A few years ago, one of his colleagues at the University of Nablus in Palestine, Suliman Bashear, was thrown out of the window by his scandalized Muslim students. That alone should indicate that he was on the path to resolving the 'incomprehensible'. Here it is:
I think that is just a myth because of Bradleys first name... I remember reading that Bradleys family was English Christian, but I could be wrong. The point I was trying to make was the Koran was admired by Patton (or Bradley) because it is basically a book of brutal combat techniques and philosophies. "Attack the weakness" is exactly what Muslims do today, and something Patton took from the Koran.
What the civilized word has to realize is we are not dealing with a religion in the traditional sense, but with a military doctrine that uses different military techniques, philosophy and psychology quite effectively that is different from our own. They got their soldiers willing to blow themselves up on the scale that makes the Japanese Kamikazes from WW2 look like amateurs. How do we deal with that? Well in WW2 we made the Japanese Emperor human. The same has to happen here in Islam. Islam cannot exist in todays world, it is not a religion of peace, it is a fanatical military ideology that may have been usueful in the middle ages, but in todays world it is getting loads of people killed.
And if Mecca was destroyed and made uninhabitable due to nuclear winter?
