I cannot count on any number of fingers how many times i have heard that Islam is a peaceful religion. Yet from the very beggining of the Islamic religion violence and death have followed it around like a blanket on a cold winter night. When Muhummed was 40 years old he encountered an "angel", at first he thought it was a Jin or a demon(he should have tested the spirit to see if it was from God, but alas he did not), and dismiised it correctly as so. He went home and his wife informed him he should go back and write down what this Angel told him, hense the creation of the Qu'ran or a doctrin of demons was created. Several quotes from the Qu'ran inform its followers to kill those who dont follow their religion, no choice but either conform and except or deny and die. Christians and Jews are called "descendants of apes and pigs", and followers are suppose to spread Jihad where ever they can. To say that Islam is a peaceful religion is a lie, followers who do not do the things that this book tell them cannot truly call themselves followers of this religion..and thank goodness for that becuase if every Muslim followed the Qu'ran as it says..we would have so many terrorists that we would have a world war just to purge them from our mists..
