Islam: is it truly a religion of peace?


With so many atrocities perpetrated by extremist Muslims, bothers me the attitude of Islamic leaders, in fact scares me out the way conceal the truth about the Koran and impresses me the way in which they contradict their speech and religious practices.

Whenever there is an attack like what occurred in the United States, which claimed the lives of fifty people, appears one or another Islamic leader who insists on the rhetoric that Islam is a religion of peace. Let’s be honest, not afraid to tell the truth and let’s leave aside the farce of good statesmanship:

Islam is an oppressive and intolerant faith. There is no Islamic country or Muslim majority nation where there is freedom. Even in the most developed, such as the Emirates, there isn’t complete freedom. Islam is intolerant with their own children, imagine with those who are of other religions. The central word in Islam is “submission,” and, in whatever the cost. In their countries they practice atrocities against their own people. And in the West they try to impose their bounds and their laws (sharia) over all. What is yet amazing to see is that their countries are in constant wars with each other or whitin themselves regarding Islam itself.

The Quran is a book that incites violence. It’s simple, only read the Quran to see and testify. A fact is a fact, it is there, it is what is taught in the mosques: violence. Some suppose that such texts require interpretation, but how to interpret if only 5% of Muslims speak Arabic including many imams who know nothing of the Arabic language, if not enough to recite their prayers. What hermeneutics school attend the imams of these mosques? The major rule of their interpretation of the With so many atrocities perpetrated by extremist Muslims, bothers me the attitude of Islamic leaders, in fact scares me out the way conceal the truth about the Koran and impresses me the direction in which they contradict their speech and religious practices.

Islam wants the right to do whatever they want in the West while in their countries people from faith suffer great discrimination and restrictions. While in the West they seek the right and freedom to live in the way that they live in their own countries. Muslims think it is their right to build as many mosques in the West as they want, while in their countries to build churches or temples of other religions is prohibited. An example, when Pakistan was born, 40% of its population was Hindu, there is now just 2% of Hindus in the country, and it is becoming increasingly intolerant.

Finding a solution to deal with these issues are not easy, but we can consider few points: 1. Do not allow imams to entry into our countries if they have a history of violence or incitement to violence, also, those which are not skilled in the Arabic language and not make a commitment to respect the law, the freedom and the local culture, under the penalty of facing expulsion from our countries. 2. There is a need for a hermeneutics reform within Islam where the Koran’s teaching assume new dimensions as symbolic and allegorical, especially in the texts that incite violence, with a practical application for today by the Islamic communities. 3. There must be an international pressure on the Islamic countries to have more freedom in their countries to practice other religions, and those countries that resist this reciprocity principle must be penalized with higher requirements for the granting of visas and engaging in cultural and economic partnerships.

Even though if these motions were adopted, we still would face problems for a few years. One thing is certain, we cannot swallow the truculências of whatever religion.
