I wonder why the Muslims are so intolerant of even allowing other religious views to be heard. Could it be because they are afraid of the free exchange of ideas? Could it be because people will find other religions more attractive?
Rather disgusting, but I was aware of that already.
The intolerance of Islamics is actually for neither of your reasons. The Islamic baby is weaned at it's mother's breast with the story of the prophet Mohammad and his Qur'an bible.
Each Muslim child is taught from the time it can understand that there is no other religion or belief but Islam. That all unbelievers (called infidels) are evil and deserve only death unless they convert to Islam.
They are never taught to read or learn anything. The only thing that they can read, and read it they do over and over and over again throught the years of their life is the Qur'an. Each child is taught that killing and death is a virtue and that life, morality and virtue are satanic. They are taught that to die for their god Allah as a Shahid (martyr) is the only thing that brings happiness. They are promised a paradise filled with everything that is pleasurble including the famous virgins and the not so well known sinless enjoyment of young boys (pure as pearls) for mutual sex or homosexual pedophilia. This was the practice of their prophet Mohammad who raped his cousin and married a child under 10 years of age.
They believe that all other people on earth are devils and deserve death. That the world is to be totally Islamic and everyone must believe in their god. To tolerate or understand other's religion is by itself worthy of death. The Muslims kill their own when they question this belief in the (moon-god) allah.
They can no more find another religion attractive than you can find comfort by having your skin flayed from your body. They are not allowed to read and thereby can't read or know anything but their Qur'an and exactly what they are taught and what is in their Qur'an.
Islam is not a religion of peace or goodness. It is one of the vilest religions ever to be on this planet. They actually kill more Muslims than they do the infidels (you, me and everyone else not Muslim).
The following is a picture of how they practice and seek their goal of death and paradise. Turn on your speakers to hear the sound of their beliefs.
So why does distain for freedom of worship vary so much from one predominantly Muslim country to another? Why do we not see this sort of thing in Malaysia or Turkey?
AJWPS: You bring up an excellent point of speculation. It appears that the different Islamic countries have Mullahs or Clerics that teach the Qur'an according to their individual degree of corruption of their bible book and personal greed. Somewhat like the different denominations of the Christian and Jewish faiths but to a much less degree of potential Islamic terminal fatality. (Except in Northern Ireland).
Some Muslim countries have a more secular government that controls to some degree the Islamic religious but only to a measure. The leaders of Turkey fear Islamic retribution if they govern with a degree of freedom and equality. Currently happening as we speak, the Turkish are being attacked and killed by their Islamic population.
Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan and many far flung Islamic countries act according to their religious leaders orders as they see the very same Qur'an.
I've been a bit curious about this as well. I've read quite a few stories (and posted a few here) where Muslims needed to leave their countries or go into hiding when changing their faith. I've asked the question over and over and never recieved a reply - why would they be in fear for their lives for simply changing their faith? Are they somehow a threat to society when they no longer follow the Qu'ran? This intolerance is very sad.
Jim the answer to your questions seems rather straightforward and uncomplicated. Qur'an says with no ambiguity that unbelievers must suffer the fate of death as ordered by Allah or live by conversion to Islam. So much more for those who try to leave the truth of Mohammad the prophet and his Qur'an. You needn't look any further than the Arabs hung upside down in death being shot and burned if they are thought to be spies against Islam. If a Jew converts to Hinduism or Zoroastrianism, there is no death sentence pronounced upon him by the Jewish people.
The Islamic in the following post finds President George Bush's proclamation of Islam being a peaceful religion meant to divide the Islamic factions which is resulting in the killing of Muslims by other Muslims.
You've given some great examples to back up my original point that Muslims are intolerant of other religions. My question is why they are so intolerant.
"You've given some great examples to back up my original point that Muslims are intolerant of other religions. My question is why they are so intolerant."
Muslims are basically intolerant of others because Islam is the antithesis of tolerance. Tolerance, mercy and justice are based upon western theology while the Qur'an theology teaches there is no tolerance, mercy or justice for anyone but Muslims in this galaxy.
"Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. --Woodrow Wilson"
Woodrow Wilson was also the progenitor of the League of Nations. Although a lofty concept, the reality of a peaceful world can only exist with civilized humanity.
We fool ourselves when we believe that humans soar above the beasts. Animals kill to eat their kill while the human kills out of the lack of humanity. A very cynical outlook on humanity.
