Ok, you invited the questions. i will try to be as polite as i can.
"The religion of peace", tired of hearing this after all the murders and atrocities reported all over the world in the name of Islam.
how can this be the religion of peace when you take int account all that is going on??
I have read that the murders commited are Not a part of the true Islam, it that correct? can you explain that to me?
I hear you, and understand your frustration. As I was alluding to earlier, we're living at the time what is called "the fitna of dajjal". Or in english, "the chaotic times of the antichrist".
Everything is suppose to be chaotic, and all religions are being infiltrated and demonized.
One of the prophecies mentioned about the 'fitna of dajjal' is that...
“Nothing would remain of Islam but the name, and nothing would remain of the Qur’an but the traces (of its writing)"
That is, the Qur’an would not be studied, no one would follow its guidance, it would be recited mechanically etc.); the Masajid (mosques) would be grand structures but would be devoid of guidance; and the religious scholars of Islam who represent such people, would be the worst people beneath the sky.
So a lot of the barbaric acts we're seeing, is a sign that we're living in age of the antichrist...unfortunately. So don't think that these acts are encouraged by the religion, they're not. These acts are the result of poverty and lack of education (which the antichrist created by imposing a monetery system based on usury). As a result, these weak people, out of envy, have decided to to use religion to rationalize their anger against other groups.
What about the war like writings in the koran instructing to kill the infadels. Note, i have not read the Koran, im going by what i have heard, so i could be wrong, please let me know.
In Islam, it's perfectly acceptable to defend yourself from aggressive enemies who want to kill you and your family. So those verses were revealed to the prophet, during times of war, when other groups wanted to kill his early followers.
The prophet tried to make peace treaties with his enemies, and unfortunately the treaty was ignored and his enemies kept attacking his camp. That's when the 'war like' verses came, saying to defeat the others, who're trying to harm you-- but the next verse (which a lot of critics ignore) says explicitly, don't hurt the enemy if they apologize.
I suggest you watch this movie... to see what kind of conflicts the prophet was going through http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlQ4Wxw5ky4
Then read the quran, and you'll get a better picture. Remember, when studying these verses, it's important to study the setting and timing they were revealed.
Why do they HATE Christinas soooo much?
Cant belive no one else asked these questions.
plitically corectness should be out the door by now considering every day something new is happening in the name of Islam!
Again, Muslims are not suppose to HATE anyone. Remember I said, the jinns feed off of that negative energy.
In terms of relations with Christians, it's strongly encouraged in the religion to try to be friends with Christians (the eastern Christians specifically) as they are the closest who'll understand our lifestyle.
There is although one verse, talking about not to become allies with Christians who have an alliances (militarily) with Jews. Please note that at the time, it was very rare for such a military alliance to be in existence.... there was a lot of animosity between the two religious community.
It's only in the modern era (post 1940s-era), that we're seeing these types of alliances to be very common. Specifically the Zionist community, or the christian involved in Freemasonry or the Orange order which promotes Zionism. So it's those people we're discouraged to be allies with.
