Islam is not inherently violent

30 Nov

On extremists, Lady Warsi, the UK’s first Muslim Minister, added: “Islam, like all other major religions, is not inherently violent. Passages from sacred texts must be taken in context. It would be possible to distort quotes from any religious text.”

What planet does she come from?  Has she never read the Qur’an?  It is full of violence against infidels and apostates.

But then she says the bit I love, “It would be possible to distort quotes from any religious texts.”

So firstly, all the exhortation to violence is a distortion!  No need to worry about that then, thank goodness. Secondly, other religions can also be said to exhort violence.  Oh well, that makes it OK then!

This argument is the classical and false Tu Quoque argument so loved by Muslim apologists. Tu Quoque means “You too”.  Of course, two wrongs don’t make a right.

Yes, other religions may have violent texts but the adherents of those religions don’t commit suicide,  blowing up churches, mosques, temples and public places.  They don’t take joy in using their texts to justify beheadings, stonings and honour killings.

And is it just coincidence that there are wars all the way from China to Turkey, whenever Muslim countries have borders with non-Muslim countries?  And even between Muslim countries?

Islam IS  inherently violent.

By their fruits you will know them.
