    Islam Is A Religion Of War, Not A Religion Of Peace

    Seems there are many religions who do not tolerate other groups. This statement "Islam is a Religion of War, not a Religion of Peace" reminded me of what was said at a watchtower convention in 2013 ....using a chilling example of how they condone dis fellowshipping & the soul killing practice of shunning!

    "Jesus said he did not come to bring peace, but a sword. ... Because Jehovah's Witnesses believe Jesus came to cause 'divisions' and his teachings would break up of families .... 2013 Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses talk Shun Your Family."


    Just makes me shudder! Two religions who are waiting & longing for god to destroy at least 8 billion people. One religion is giving god a hand and horrifically beginning the raping & killing of all the unbelievers right now.


    The other religion, who also believe they are the only right & true religion, just mouth their desires to do away with apostates but feel they better hold back from physically killing their ex brothers & sisters....and only kill them spiritually or metaphorically right now, by shunning them to death! So much more civilized ...don't you think ?

    "The law of the land and God's law through Christ forbid us to kill apostates, even though they be members of our own flesh-and-blood. " WT 1952 Nov 15 pg 703

    As the worlds violence & intolerance increases it becomes more & more clear Christopher Hitchens writes ....Religion Ruins Everything.

    The situation re. Islam is fairly complicated, IMO.

    Just as it would be utterly dumb to state that all Muslims are terrorists, it's equally dumb to state that the recent France massacre had nothing to do with Islam.

    But in answer to the OP's question, yes, they are. Not part of mainstream Islamic practice, but based on an interpretation of the Qur'an and Hadith that is just as legitimate as any other. This is something that Muslims urgently need to sort out - the complete theological dismantling of ISIS, plus teaching this to current and future generations of Muslims.

    Abrahamic religions are all vile.

    Islam seems to be hanging on to the dark ages tightest.

    Many religions, not just Islam, and many holy books, not just the Quran, allow extreme interpretations, the easier the more the meaning of those books needs to be interpreted by a small group or class of "learned" individuals, with free discussion restricted or banned. The Spanish Inquisition is a horrifying example of that. Now there is a heated discussion on who to blame for what happened in Paris. However, to prepare a fertile ground for Isis was started, when the nation of Israel was created in 1948 and ever since Israel has had an unreserved support for whatever they do from American christian extremists.

    Somehow all this sounds too familiar.

    I'd be surprised 100% if the Borg DOES NOT publish a WT study about these Paris terrorist attacks tied-in with religion and Babylon the Great.

    I very much doubt it.

    The WT has always been eager to criticize the Catholic Church but hasn't got the courage to criticize Islamic terrorism. A review of past & present publications should confirm this.

    The Watchtower - brave only when it suits them.

    No, they want to be as broad as possible since they have a 100% failure rate on predictions and interpretations. They don't want it kicking them years later. They'll just word things that Lett will understand. "Things are bad, people are dying, the end is SOOO close! Anyday now!! We now have credit card swipers at the donation boxes, run up your credit for the faithful slave, the end is so close you'll never need to pay it back!!"
