Islam is the most Warlike Religion

Islam creates a lot of problems, even in Denmark. Moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out with critical observations of their religion, and a Jewish man was attacked for reading from the Koran. Since the murder of the Islam critical Dutch film director Theo van Gogh, Danish artists are fearful of criticising Islam.

However, Denmark is still probably the one Western country with the most open, critical debate about Islam and Muslim immigration. The following is my translation of an article from Danish where a researcher has spent three years analyzing the original texts of ten different religions, from Christianity to Sikhism, and concluded that the Islamic texts were by far the most warlike. It thus proves what many of us "lunatics" have been saying all along, that Islam itself, not "misinterpretations", is the problem. I include a link to the original article, which was published in Jyllandsposten, Denmark's largest newspaper, on the 10th of September 2005:

Islam er den mest krigeriske religion

Islam is the most Warlike religion

A Danish language researcher has spent over three years analyzing the original texts of ten different religions, and concludes that the Islamic texts stand out by encouraging terror and violence to a larger degree than other religions do. Four years after the terror attacks at the World Trade Center, Danish linguist Tina Magaard presents an analysis that questions Islam’s relationship with terror, violence and Holy War.

Islamic texts encourage terror and fighting to a far larger degree than the original texts of other religions, concludes Tina Magaard. She has a PhD in Textual Analysis and Intercultural Communication from the Sorbonne in Paris, and has spent three years on a research project comparing the original texts of ten religions. “The texts in Islam distinguish themselves from the texts of other religions by encouraging violence and aggression against people with other religious beliefs to a larger degree. There are also straightforward calls for terror. This has long been a taboo in the research into Islam, but it is a fact that we need to deal with," says Tina Magaard. Moreover, there are hundreds of calls in the Koran for fighting against people of other faiths. “If it is correct that many Muslims view the Koran as the literal words of God, which cannot be interpreted or rephrased, then we have a problem. It is indisputable that the texts encourage terror and violence. Consequently, it must be reasonable to ask Muslims themselves how they relate to the text, if they read it as it is," says Tina Magaard.

The Copenhagen imams Ahmed Abu Laban and Abdul Wahid Petersen are greatly upset by the analysis presented by the linguist. Abu Laban: “I don’t want to confine myself to a single stupid, prejudiced and dishonest researcher. Why waste time on somebody who wants to create twisted ideas about Islam?” Abdul Wahid Petersen calls the analysis ”academic nonsense": ”You cannot single out quotes and conclude the way she does. Most verses in the Koran should be viewed within a specific historical context and cannot be generalized. If there are so many calls for violence, then why haven’t Muslims wiped out people of different faiths in the societies where Muslims make up the majority? Because we do not read the Koran that way.”

Imam Ahmed Abu Laban, who claims that critics of Islam are "prejudiced", earlier this year advocated using the Islamic concept of blood money to pay the equivalent of 100 camels for a man's life. Here is my post about this:

Camel Economics

Two men have been killed in street shootings in a row involving a group of second generation immigrants in Copenhagen. Integration Minister Hvilshøj rejected a proposal from Imam Abu Laban that blood money be paid to the family of a man who was killed. According to the Imam, the thirst for revenge could be cooled if 200,000 kroner were paid either by the family of the doorman who fired the shots or by the Islamic community. He said the practice of paying blood money to the family of a deceased person was normal in Muslim societies. Meanwhile there is growing fear amongst politicians that the immigrant environment in the Nørrebro area in Copenhagen, which has been unofficially declared an “Islamic state” by some of its residents, is developing into a parallel society where ancient traditions threaten Danish law.

200,000 Danish kroner is approximately the value of 100 camels. Some baffled commentators at first thought it was said tongue-in-cheek when Imam Abu Laban wanted the equivalent of 100 camels to be paid for a man’s life. That’s probably not the case. The number of 100 camels is based on the example of Muhammad himself, as recorded in sound hadith. Even though camels are the basic unit for calculating blood money, many jurists stipulate that you can pay an amount equal to the worth of 100 camels in other livestock, silver, gold or even cash. Imam Abu Laban in Denmark is thus on perfectly sound Islamic grounds in claiming that 200.000 Danish kroner, equal to 100 camels, should be paid to the family of the deceased.

Muslims make up less than 4 % of the population in Denmark, one of the toughest countries in Western Europe when it comes to confronting Islam. The fact that many of them, some even born and raised in the country, can still flaunt such blatant disregard for the most fundamental principles of our society should have alarm bells ringing all over Europe. Time is long overdue for some brutal honesty: Islam cannot coexist with Western society. All its basic tenets are hostile to every single idea on which liberal democracy and Western civilization are founded. Islamic culture cannot be integrated into the West any more than fire can be integrated with water. If Muslim immigration is allowed to continue, Muslim parallel societies will destroy our countries from within. We need to face this painful truth and act accordingly, or lights will soon go out over much of Europe.

Well as he mentions it they have wiped out people of different faiths and they are still doing it, look at what happened is happening to Christians in the Middle East. How can they say such things with a straight face, its beyond me?

They've been trying hard for 1400 years. The only reason the Infidels haven't been wiped out is that the Muslims, for a time, consider them more useful as dhimmis, and profit from the Infidels stupidity and industrious with all those Infidel taxes and financial burdens(jizya in all its flavors). And once the infidels are depleted or all have fled, then the now 100% Islam society devolves. If they have oil, they look like Saudi Arabia and Iran. If they don't have oil, they look like Pakistan. All suck.

Took her 3 years huh? How about 30 minutes. At Islam Undressed, an Islamic scholar provided the 'ESSENCE' of Islam as given to Mo in the Quran:

You can read it all here:

Islam Undressed Appendix A

The Essence of the Quran is about 1/2 way down the Page

But here is the first 20 chapters:
The Essence of the Qur’an

I am often met with disbelief when describing the violent content of the Islamic sacred works to others. One needs to read the book himself to understand the pervasiveness of violence and prejudice therein. A good summary has been compiled by one Islamic scholar, who precedes it with: “The following is the essence of the Qu’ran, the rest are fairy tales:”

Quran Surah 2: The Cow

Don't bother to warn the disbelievers. Allah has blinded them. Theirs will be an awful doom. 6
Allah has sickened their hearts. A painful doom is theirs because they lie. 10
A fire has been prepared for the disbelievers, whose fuel is men and stones. 24
Disbelievers will be burned with fire. 39, 90
For disbelievers is a painful doom. 104
For unbelievers: ignominy in this world, an awful doom in the next. 114
Allah will leave the disbelievers alone for a while, but then he will compel them to the doom of Fire. 126
The doom of the disbelievers will not be lightened. 162
They will not emerge from the Fire. 167
Those who hide the Scripture will have their bellies eaten with fire. Theirs will be a painful doom. 174
How constant are they in their strife to reach the Fire! 175
Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kil them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. 191
War is ordained by Allah. 216
Those who die in their disbelief will burn forever in the Fire. 217
Disbelievers worship false gods. They will burn forever in the Fire. 257
Allah does not guide disbelievers. 264
"Give us victory over the disbelieving folk." 286

Quran Surah 3: The Family Of 'Imran

Those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah, theirs will be a heavy doom. 4
Those who disbelieve will be fuel for the Fire. 10
Those who disbelieve shall be overcome and gathered unto Hell. 12
Those who disbelieve, promise them a painful doom. 21
Theirs will be a painful doom. 77
All non-Muslims will be rejected by Allah after they die. 85
Disbelievers will have a painful doom. And they will have no helpers. 91
Disbelievers will have their faces blackened on the last day. They will face an awful doom. 105-6
Those who disbelieve will be burnt in the Fire. 116
The Fire is prepared for disbelievers. 131
We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Their habitation is the Fire 151
Theirs will be an awful doom. 176
Disbelievers do not harm Allah, but will have a painful doom. 177
Disbelievers will have a shamful doom. 178
Disbelievers will go to Hell. 196

Quran Surah 4: Women
Those who disobey Allah and his messenger will be burnt with fire and suffer a painful doom. 14
For the disbelievers, We have prepared a painful doom. 18
For disbelievers, We prepare a shameful doom. 37
Hell is sufficient for their burning. 55
Unbelievers will be tormented forever with fire. When their skin is burned off, a fresh skin will be provided. 56
Allah will bestow a vast reward on those who fight in religious wars. 74
Believers fight for Allah; disbelievers fight for the devil. So fight the minions of the devil. 76
Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them. 89
If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them. Against such you are given clear warrant. 91 ( Offering peace in Islam means surrendering. All 67 out of 68 wars of Muhammad were offensive. They are called qazwah (raid, ambush, sudden attack). That is how Muhammad waged his wars. He raided, massacred and looted civilians with no warning. The one defensive war, 'ditch' was not fought. That is why the Islamic terrorism 'jihad' will continue until the West "offers peace". This was made clear by Bin Laden.)
Those who oppose the messenger and become unbelievers will go to hell. 115
Those who believe, then disbelieve, then believe and disbelieve again will never be forgiven by Allah. 137

Allah will gather hypocrites and disbelievers into hell. 140
The hypocrites will be in the lowest part of hell and no one will help them there. 145
You must believe everything Allah and his messengers tell you. Those who don't are disbelievers and will face a painful doom. 150-151
For the disbelievers, Allah has prepared a painful doom. 161
God will guide disbelievers down a road that leads to everlasting hell. 168-169

(NOTE: CH 5 is the NEXT TO LAST revelation given to Mo and it is mean but not as mean as CH 9)
Those who deny Islam will be losers in the Hereafter. 5
Disbelievers are the rightful owners of Hell. 10
Those who make war with Allah and his messenger will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. That is how they will be treated in this world, and in the next they will have an awful doom. 33 (Anyone who resist Islam is deemed to be making war with Allah)
Disbelievers will have a painful doom. 36
Disbelievers will want to come out of the Fire, but will not. Their will be a lasting doom. 37
Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, and tooth for tooth. Non-muslims are wrong doers. 45
Christians will be burned in the Fire. 72
Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 73
Disbelievers will be owners of hell-fire. 86

Quran Surah 6: The Cattle
Many generations have been destroyed by Allah. 6
Allah will torment those who deny his revelations. 49
Those who disbelieve will be forced to drink boiling water, and will face a painful doom. 70

Notice a pattern in the Qur'an? Wasn't it nice of that Islamic scholar to cut all the BS out and give you the essence of the Qur'an. You just completed 3 years work in 20 minutes! How about that!

Keep this in mind when a Muslim tells you that the Qur'an promotes tolerance and respect for other religions: LIAR!

Well not for want of trying for a start.

There is another reason as well. Muslims feel that they are innately superior to all, as they think that they are in possession of the last words from allah to humanity. This is a most strange, and almost demented view of God and his dealings with human beings. But there it is. However, for muslims to feel superior to non-muslims, they must have a few non-muslims around, otherwise it is quite pointless. Thus it is that Christian majority countries in the ME have been decimated but not quite destroyed.

If muslims feel that they are so superior, why on earth are they so desperate to leave dar ul islam and get to the West? They will lie and cheat to immigration officers to get to the West, and to the court if deportation back to dar ulislam is threatened.

The strange thing is that muslims incarcerated in Belmarsh prison in the UK, are perfectly free to go anywhere they want, but they prefer being in jail in Britain then free in any muslim nation.

"Islam is the most Warlike Religion"


Islam is a religion of war. The war is just a means to get loot and booty. If possible they will try to get loot and booty by way of war, but if that does not work, then invasion by immigration, and then becoming benefit scroungers, is the next best thing. Either way, muslims intend to live on the wealth created by others, as they are innately superior. Palestinians are the most extreme example of this behaviour.

My problem is, why are we allowing this to happen.

I think I'll change my "call sign" to "devil's advocate"!

Unfortunately I can not read the (Danish?) text of this blog, but I would like to.

I believe that the Koran is less violent than the other Islamic texts (Hadith and Sunnah). I believe most Muslims follow the Hadith and Sunnah.

I think something similar happened with Christianity during the Middle Ages, when the Catholic Church said one thing, and the Bible said another(Inquistion, penance, etc). I think it would behove the Muslims to gather a commonly accepted group of "intellectuals" and come out with a common statement for the Muslim people regarding what they should believe:

I believe this statement should be based on the Koran, and not the auxiliary texts, which where dictated hundreds of years after the original text. The Koran states that all following texts should be ignored and shunned.

I am a Christian. God gave us brains to use, including the Muslims. If they are given an oppotunity to listen to their intellectuals, and still reach the same conclusions, then so be it, we "will not go silently into the night."

Just one more example, of personal significance... The Koran does not denigrate dogs. In fact, it can be derived that it enobles them:

I'm not in any way an apologist for Islam. I know they are wrong. BUT, I think they are more wrong, by believing texts which followed the Koran than they would have been if they had followed the Koran.
