Islam: The Religion of Peace?

WW2 is an unending fascination for me.  It is incomprehensible that a cultured, educated and advanced society that the Germans exhibited as being in the 1930-1940’s could have turned into such a murderous gang of rogues.

The scenes of mass murder are particularly disturbing as the following grainy, black and white photographs show of the massacre at Babi Yar, the site where 33,771 Jews were murdered in a single operation.  Estimates have been between 100,000 and 150,000 were murdered here:

Murder on any scale is disturbing, but the systematic slaughter of millions of civilians on a mass scale numbs the senses.

As unsettling as these old photos are, a certain disconnect exists between us; perhaps it’s because they are black and white, poorly developed, or from a time and era too distant from where we are today.  With the rise of social media and the ubiquitous cellphone, we like our news fresh, right out of the starting gates.

Such fresh news is becoming abundant with the atrocities being committed by Islam around the world, and there is no longer that disconnect caused by poor quality media or vast stretches of time between the perpetrators of war crimes and viewers.  Today’s genocidal acts are in living color and can be instantly downloaded from those who record the acts on their cell phones, and those who view the clips on Youtube, social websites, or any number of news organizations.

In the last couple of days, I have watched some of these videos and have been stunned by what I’ve seen.  One of the most horrific was taken down the day I saw it here.  It showed Iraqi men—supposedly soldiers dressed in civilian clothes—in trucks that were then driven by the ISIS terrorists to a place where they were then lined up in trenches, face down in the dirt.  Men with machine guns then shot them all in the head.

Here is a sample photo from the massacre:


This morning, I read an article that embedded the video in their page. If you can stomach it, here it is (the last five minutes are the most brutal).

One man in the video appeared to be begging for his life, but I don’t understand Arabic so I could not determine exactly what he was saying.

Before the video was taken down, another scene was with some of these men were led to the edge of a river.  A man with a pistol shot each in the head as the other man dumped the bodies, one after the other, into the water.  The cement at the feet of the shooter was drenched in blood.  You will see this in the video above.

These scenes are brutal, horrific and beyond understanding, reminiscent of what Hitler’s henchmen did, not only in Babi Yar, but in countless other places in Europe.  These atrocities, war crimes, are going on now, all in the name of Muhammad, the “Prophet of Peace.”

Here is an article with the accompanying video of men with their heads sliced off, skewered on fence posts.  I must warn you of the graphic nature of this video.

In many of these videos portraying the most savage acts of violence and cruelty, the phrase “Allahu akbar!” (God is great) can be heard repeated endlessly.  This god, Allah, apparently thrives on the most heinous acts of cruelty and torture his Quran quoting murderers can conjure up.

Imagine, if you will, the kind of scene that would develop if the men that were the objects of ISIS’s wrath—fellow Muslims—were Israeli Jews instead.  If Muslims treat fellow Muslims in such an inhumane and vicious way, what would their treatment look like toward despised Jews?  Is it any wonder why Israel is continuing their offensive in Gaza?  Would you want Hamas burrowing tunnels into your backyard or living room?

I believe it is time, once and for all, to renounce with all our communicative abilities, the lie that Islam is a “religion of peace.”  I will be the first to acknowledge that there are peaceful Muslims that practice their religion without the slightest desire to cut people’s heads off or shoot others in the head with machine guns.  But jihad is taught in the Quran, and if you are a Muslim wishing to be true to your religion, how do you explain that so many of your fellow Muslims quote the Quran as justification for these crimes?

The old saying, “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck…” applies to Islam, and if so many jihadists who routinely commit the most unspeakable crimes agains humanity appeal to the Quran for justification for why they do them, the conclusion is crystal clear.
