THRIVE II PREVIEW

Muslims Are Not More Violent Than People of Other Religions & Here Are the Facts to Prove It

Muslims praying

By Juan Cole | Truth Dig

Contrary to what is alleged by bigots like Bill Maher, Muslims are not more violent than people of other religions. Murder rates in most of the Muslim world are very low compared to the United States.


As for political violence, people of Christian heritage in the twentieth century polished off tens of millions of people in the two world wars and colonial repression.  This massive carnage did not occur because European Christians are worse than or different from other human beings, but because they were the first to industrialize war and pursue a national model.  Sometimes it is argued that they did not act in the name of religion but of nationalism.  But, really, how naive.  Religion and nationalism are closely intertwined.  The British monarch is the head of the Church of England, and that still meant something in the first half of the twentieth century, at least.  The Swedish church is a national church.  Spain?  Was it really unconnected to Catholicism?  Did the Church and Francisco Franco’s feelings toward it play no role in the Civil War?  And what’s sauce for the goose: much Muslim violence is driven by forms of modern nationalism, too.

I don’t figure that Muslims killed more than 2 million people or so in political violence in the entire twentieth century, and that mainly in the Iran-Iraq War 1980-1988 and the Soviet and post-Soviet wars in Afghanistan, for which Europeans bear some blame (the secular nationalist Young Turks also committed genocide against the Armenians during an invasion of eastern Anatolia by Russia).

Compare that to the Christian European tally of, oh, lets say 100 million (16 million in WW I, 60 million in WW II– though some of those were attributable to Buddhists in Asia– and millions more in colonial wars.)


relviolence

Belgium– yes, the Belgium of strawberry beer and quaint Gravensteen castle– conquered the Congo and is estimated to have killed off half of its inhabitants over time, some 8 million people at least.

Or, between 1916-1930 Tsarist Russian and then Soviet forces — facing the revolt of Central Asians trying to throw off Christian (and then Marxist), European rule — Russian forces killed an estimated 1.5 million people. Two boys brought up in or born in one of those territories (Kyrgyzstan) just killed 4 people and wounded others critically. That is horrible, but no one, whether in Russia or in Europe or in North America has the slightest idea that Central Asians were mass-murdered during WW I and before and after, and looted of much of their wealth. Russia when it brutally conquered and ruled the Caucasus and Central Asia was an Eastern Orthodox, Christian empire (and seems to be reemerging as one!).

Then, between half a million and a million Algerians died in that country’s war of independence from France, 1954-1962, at a time when the population was only 11 million!

I could go on and on. Everywhere you dig in European colonialism in Afro-Asia, there are bodies. Lots of bodies.

Now that I think of it, maybe 100 million people killed by people of European Christian heritage in the twentieth century is an underestimate.

      Israeli mossads have been committing mass murders and calling themselves Muslims. (ISIS) That’s probably where she’s coming from with that..but yeah, they’re Zionists-pretending* to be muslim…so they can commit genocide all around the muslim/Arabs communities-and expand Israel. It’s legitimate. It’s called the greater Israel expansion. And it is sickening- that the u.s. media is covering it up by telling everyone it’s muslim radicals.. Telling us that they’re muslim-(so we assume that Muslims are safe over there (fact: they’re the MOST killed by ISIS) and we Americans become afraid & angry with Islam. . and then blind to the fact that this is in fact a genocide being carried out :/

      I have a friend from India and she tells me the same thing. I can see the fear and horror in her eyes and she shakes. I can’t wrap my head around it it breaks my heart but it must be cultural in the area and not about the people and the religion. Those who claimed to be Christian have caused an equal amount of bloodshed and they don’t represent me or the other Christians I know.

      Sorry, you thing so, yes we are all humans, also why all the muslims do not think like this, why we cant not live normaly, why all the bad things are here in Europe. If some country , European country, begun to make somethings like this in muslims country, realy what you think.

    • 173505136331592@facebook.com' Salah Sari says:

      everyone might divert. Certain reading or understanding of “the holy word” is in operation by many powerful sides, but the “standard one” of us is totally something different: normal like you, but with different sets of peaceful faith. You have reason to fear, but I just want to clarify. I live in an apartment, have a college degree, learnt English, and, as many many others, try to apply the “holy word” with light, love, and wisdom. There are uncountable people who belie that our faith is that of mind, and when the text and logic diverge, the text must be explained in the light of mind.

    • 1827142960845847@facebook.com' Carol Ferencz says:

      Your rong, i am not afraid, the only thing i fear is the reasponse, you/l see. Any time to bad, the answer is more bad to kill the same thing. UUUUUUUUHHHH. IAM SO SAD.

    • 173505136331592@facebook.com' Salah Sari says:

      I understand that a country with a unified culture is better in the eyes of its people. l am, for example, not comfortable with a friendship with person with another faith, here in my country, not for religious reasons, but for social ones. Our customes are different, and even our accents, not very different, but let’s say it frankly, We are more at ease with those who resemble us. A tiny doubt may make “the whole faith” susceptible. “What if one of them turned to be. ..?”, you have reason to doubt. But please know, it’s not the whole faith, it’s distorted, disgusting “version” of that faith, but, to be honest with ourselves, this ugly version is totally out of the faith. Just know that, please.

    • 1827142960845847@facebook.com' Carol Ferencz says:

      You think, a religion can make a distance betwin of menkindness, or the realy religion is love, truth, and helplles

    • 173505136331592@facebook.com' Salah Sari says:

      All faiths are equal in their beautiful human values, but the faith is a text, but who applies it is human. Every beautiful principle could be applied in infinite ways, but only the good ways are acceptable. Sometimes we are subjected, intentionally, to distortion of our views to things, that we ignore that, hyperbole that, give new bizarre reading to that…, and the result “something else.”

      Carol Ferencz Israeli mossad’s (Zionists) are the real IsIs. They are not muslim. They are lying & using Islam to cover what they are really doing. It’s called the “greater Israel expansion”.

      they are simple people, busy getting their “bread”, have the same interests as you, except you are more developed.

      Diamond Sparkles@ I do agree with you 100%. I have Muslim friends all my life. And most of them are very very close friends that actually i call them my family. They are generous, kind, so sensitive, and they give good example on how to treat your family and close friends. But I’m not saying that most of those terrorist are not Muslims, they are. But when Christian person commit a crime/massacre then he’s a bloody murder not a terrorist. But my dear Diamond, unfortunately people chose to be blind and ignorant.

      Mike, most violence verses were written by man. There’s no common sense in having sex with a man or the Angels will curse them, that serves men, not humanity. Muslims came to a point to be aware that most of these books have lethal mistakes and were written to serve a sole purpose. Violence, sex, killing. In where I come from it’s not the same as Iran for instance,
      Governments use religion to oppress people, just like in the Middle Ages when crusades were taken place in the Middle East, all under the name of Jesus and Christianity, but it’s far from truth. People in the Middle East started to be aware of what governments are doing, they’re started to wake up, late yes, but they’re trying
      In Saudi Arabia, women are forced to wear a certain clothing, if not they’ll be jailed, on the other hand the daughters of the rulers are allowed to wear whatever they want. Women are banned from driving in Saudi, but also the daughters of the rulers they can do whatever they want. When religion is used for political purposes it creates a country like Iran, Saudi, etc
      Muslims are not terrorists, not born to kill, but they’re misguided

    • 10204887003430194@facebook.com' Diamond Sparkles says:

      Oh so Mike we forget here in the US that women were not allowed to speak in the churches and if they had anything to say, they must seek their husband approval. Not to mention during slavery, women weren’t allowed in the work force, they had to stay home and do *women’s work* while the husband go outside the house to work. I guess that’s not treating women as property. So I guess Women’s Rights was something women just wanted to do for fun.

    • 10204887003430194@facebook.com' Diamond Sparkles says:

      Excerpt from article:During the early history of the United States, a man virtually owned his wife and children as he did his material possessions. If a poor man chose to send his children to the poorhouse, the mother was legally defenseless to object. Some communities, however, modified the common law to allow women to act as lawyers in the courts, to sue for property, and to own property in their own names if their husbands agreed.

Don’t let the media paint the picture for you , intelligent people use their own brain to form their opinion. Humanity is before any religion , this is what I believe on as a practicing Muslim.

    Unfortunately the KORAN and the cult of repeating the belief 5 times a day is firstly the idea of brain washing. And what is it the KORAN, in it’s. Simple from is the terrorists are only following the text. No more no less. Read it for yourself. They cannot even tell you what human wrote the KORAN. THATS RIGHT,,, NO AUTHORITY OR AUTHOR. The KORAN has a lot to answer for,,, read it… or simply listen to the so called scholars, but it is very clear..
    If you love humanity you would not judge but Question. Problem is if you question the KORAN, ***good-bye***,, simple enough.

    • 1669221846687659@facebook.com' Mark Geerlings says:

      I would be careful on saying they do the opposite of Muslim, they do exactly what they think is a true muslim,,, this is the problem, the varience of belief that they are inscribed to. The KORAN is the issue, there are very strong statements in the KORAN that do actually say the things they do. The difference is the passive readers only get the good from the book of KORAN. In its completness. There is no comparason to the KORAN it stands alone. Though if you have every read the book of KORAN, it ends up saying that if you truely believe this you would follow Jesus!!!. how does that grab you. Firstly, you must know the Bible and the Koran. and anyother system of teachings. An indepth knowledge will take sometime as we learn always.

      They re muslims cos they r following the dictates of their prophet! Mohammed clearly stated in the Quran that islam must dominate the world!! Muslims have to do this through sharia or by the sword which is jihad! Mohammed told his followers not even sit with christians not to talk of making friends with them!! He told them to hate followers of Yeshua(Jesus)!! Any true muslim must fight by killing christians especially!! Mohammed hated followers of Yeshua so much! Jesus christ preached love and peace but Mohammed was the opposite!! If these killers are not muslims, then what are they??? They re definately muslims, devouted ones for that matter!!! Muslims are potential terrorists cos they re being rewarded with 72 virgins in their aljanah for killing in the course of their Allah!! Shallom!!

    I don’t typically go on rants or express my political beliefs here, but I just have to get this off my mind. As some of you know, I’m active duty Army. Aside from that, I am a medic. I’ve spent 3 years of my life overseas in both Afghanistan and Iraq. I’ve seen some pretty atrocious sites caused by war, from both sides. I’ve picked up blown up body parts of friends and I’ve saved the lives of guys who were trying to kill me and my guys right before I was keeping them from their 72 virgins or whatever they believe awaits them on the other side. Here is an unbiased truthful view to the Syrian refugee situation. My first deployment to Iraq, in 2006, my unit voluntarily ran a childrens burn clinic outside of the FOB. It was a constant target for attacks. You would think that people wouldn’t shoot mortars or rockets at their own children, but you would be wrong. We saw hundreds of children, from infants to 18 year olds. The overwhelming majority of the kids we saw (90% or better) were clear cases of abuse. These parents were literally dunking their kids in boiling water, or throwing hot chai at their kids faces… Yes, we’re talking about babies, toddlers, kids not even old enough to understand why their parents would do these things to them. HUNDREDS of kids… We saw quite a few of these kids that were sexually abused, both girls and boys. Their parents acted if nothing was wrong with this, even when confronted by our doctors. This is the mentality of their society, not the viewpoint of a few individuals… these beliefs have been accepted to the vast majority of these people. Many were educated, well dressed, well spoken men, but yet, they still raped their own children, and kept chai boys (if you don’t know what that means, google it.) During that deployment, we also captured the 3rd largest EFP cache that had ever been captured. There were hundreds of copper plates, homemade explosives, fake curbs to house the EFP’s, hundreds of mortars and rockets and howitzer rounds, even an anti-aircraft gun. All of these things came from one place, Syria. Almost every single IED or EFP we found or hit could be traced back to Syria… A lot of the terrorists we captured were from SYRIA… Imagine that. Fast forward a couple years, and I find myself in Helmand Province, in Afghanistan… We had a group of Afghani’s that were paid to help guard our little mud hut in the middle of an Afghan village (I wasn’t on a fob) These guys also kept a “chai boy” A boy, about 11 years old, who was there to serve these guys sexually. We heard him being sexually assaulted many times, but there was nothing we could do about it. We asked the police, the Afghan Army, and we were told the same thing every time…. it’s their culture, and accepted as the norm…. Once again, we captured Syrian made explosives, weapons, and other items… We found Syrian passports during raids… And people out there want us to let these people into the US, with our kids, and near our wives. Near our schools, near our churches, synogogues, malls. Places where we should never have to fear being blown up, shot, kidnapped and tortured… Don’t forget what they did to the Egyptian Coptic Christians, or the Jordanian pilot… Don’t forget about what they do to rape victims! They stone these women to death for being raped! They behead their own people. Do you think they will show mercy to you? Look at the rape statistics in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium. Facts don’t lie… 97% of rapes committed in Sweden were committed by Muslim immigrants… And you want 10,000 of these people here? Even if just 1% of these so called “refugees” were ISIS supporters or active ISIS terrorists, would that be acceptable to you? Chew on it… think about it. Take a good look at your kids or your wife and decide if the risk is worth taking. Feel free to share this if you want.

    • There are no electricity bills in Libya; electricity is free … for all its citizens.
    • There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.
    • If a Libyan is unable to find employment after graduation, the state pays the average salary of the profession as if he or she is employed until employment is found.
    • Should Libyans want to take up a farming career, they receive farm land, a house, equipment, seed and livestock to kick start their farms – all for free.
    • Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.
    • A home considered a human right in Libya. (In Qaddafi’s Green Book it states: “The house is a basic need of both the individual and the family, therefore it should not be owned by others.”)
    • All newlyweds in Libya receive 60,000 Dinar (US$ 50,000 ) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start a family.
    • A portion of Libyan oil sales is credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens.
    • A mother who gives birth to a child receives US $5,000.
    • When a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidizes 50% of the price.
    • The price of petrol in Libya is $0.14 per liter.
    • For $ 0.15, a Libyan local can purchase 40 loaves of bread.
    • Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Libya can boast one of the finest health care systems in the Arab and African World. All people have access to doctors, hospitals, clinics and medicines, completely free of charge.
    • If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US $2,300/month accommodation and car allowance.
    • 25% of Libyans have a university degree. Before Gaddafi only 25% of Libyans were literate. Today the figure is 87%.
    • Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – though much of this is now frozen globally
    Education FREE
    Healthcare FREE
    Housing FREE
    Utilities FREE
    Food CHEAP
    Petrol CHEAP
    where is that Libya now..
