What’s the difference between a Muslim who does atrocious acts of violence and a “Christian” who does similar despicable acts of evil? Simply this: When a Muslim kills a non-Muslim he is OBEYING the teachings of its founder Muhammad (“kill them wherever you find them”--Quran 2:191-193) as well as following in Muhammad’s footsteps (as he killed many who wouldn’t convert to his teachings). But when a “Christian” murders others he is DISOBEYING the teachings of the founder of Christianity Jesus Christ (“love your enemies”--Matt. 5:44), as well as NOT following in Christ’s footsteps (who instead of killing others, gave His life for others).
So when a Muslim murders nonbelievers, he is a TRUE & GENUINE & FAITHFUL Muslim, since this is what Muhammad both taught and did.
But when a “Christian” murders others he is a FALSE REPROBATE “Christian”, since this is in direct opposition to both what Jesus taught and did. And those people who do such atrocious deeds are NOT genuine Christians at all. They are just wicked people who simply call themselves “Christians.” That is, they are FALSE, COUNTERFEIT “Christians”!
So when a “Christian” does such horrible acts of violence (such as the inquisition, the crusades, etc.), he’s just an imposter, masquerading as a true Christian. But a Muslim who kills an infidel is a TRUE, GENUINE, LOYAL, and FAITHFUL Muslim since that is EXACTLY what he is taught and expected to do! And that is exactly why great multitudes of Muslims around the world will take to the streets after such terrifying acts of violence — as what happened immediately after 9/11 (even occurring in some places in America!) — wildly celebrating and euphorically rejoicing, the whole time chanting praises to their god (i.e. the moon god): “Allah Akbar!” “Allah Akbar!” “Allah Akbar!” (i.e. Allah is greatest! Allah is greatest! Allah is greatest!).
Here are some of the verses commanding Muslims to violence:
Quran (2:191-193) - And kill them wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.
Quran (2:216) - Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.
Quran (4:74) - Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward. [This is the theological basis for today's suicide bombers.]
Quran (4:76) - Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…
Quran (4:89) - …But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and take no friends or helpers from their ranks.
Quran (8:12) - I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Quran (9:5) - So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.
Quran (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 Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth… until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Quran (9:38-39) - O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place. [This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.]
Quran (17:16) - And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.
Quran (33:60-62) - If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a slaughter.
Quran (47:3-4) - Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly [on them, i.e. take them as captives]... If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them [without you]. But [He lets you fight], in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost.
Here is just one of many verses from the Hadith commanding Muslims to violence:
Bukhari (52:177) — Allah's Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’”
All of these commandments to violence from both the Koran and the Hadith are in sharp contrast to what Jesus Christ commanded His followers. Here is just one such example (of many such Scriptures spread throughout the Bible):
Matthew 5:44 (NKJV) — “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”
