Is Islam Inherently Violent?

To some people perhaps, the title of this article sounds Islamophobic. And as is the case, Muslims always rush to defend their religion by stating there is violence in “All religions.” Fortunately, the non-Muslim world has in its possession Islam’s document, the holy book of Islam, the Quran which is filled with many Suras, verses and orders of violence.

“The Quran contains at least 109 verses that speak of war with nonbelievers, usually based on their status as non-Muslims. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may hide. Muslims who do not join the fight are called  ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.”

Islam is anything but a religion of peace. Violence is at the very core of Islam. Violence is institutionalized in the Muslims’ holy book, the Quran in many Suras.

Right from the start, violence served as the engine of Islam under the command and supervision of Muhammad himself. For one, the Prophet’s son-in-law and cousin, Ali, was titled the Commander of the Faithful for his unsurpassed feats of butchery. Ali with the assistance of one or two of his thugs, beheaded some seven hundred captives, most of them Jews, in only one day. This man, highly esteemed by the prophet of Allah, had a sword that had its own name—Zolfaghar. Ali’s portrait, holding the menacing sword, adorns the homes and shops throughout Shi’a’-lands. And this man, Ali, is revered by the Shiites at the same level as Muhammad.

On the Sunni side, Muhammad’s equally revered is Umar, another unabashed killer of untold numbers. And of course, the choice weapon of these champions of the religion of peace was the sword. And to this day, a sword adorns the flag of the birthplace of the religion of peace, Saudi Arabia.

And Islam, by the nature of its very doctrine, appeals to man’s baser nature. It promotes intolerance, hatred, discrimination, and much more:

A pious Muslim does not and cannot believe in freedom of choice. In the religion of Islam—Submission—everything is up to Allah, as clearly and repeatedly stipulated in the Quran. The raison d’être for the Muslim is to be unconditionally submissive to the will and dictates of Allah. Everything that a “good” Muslim does is contingent upon the will and decree of Allah, he is indoctrinated to believe. Humanity is facing a deeply troubling dilemma.  Not only does Islam support violence, even its Prophet Muhammad commands:

“Kill whoever changes his religion.” Sahih al-Bukhari 9:84:57

Islam is tantamount to violence. Violence is the lifeblood of Islam and it has been ever since the time of Muhammad in Medina by Muhammad’s own edict and conduct.

Without violence of all types, Islam would undergo a slow death. Violence is in the fabric of this crooked ideology.  Take away violence and you shut down the blood supply from the body of ‘ISLAMS.’ Islam is violent, not only against non-Muslims, but it is also violent against its own numerous sects and offshoots. Even within every sect and offshoot violence in the most savage ways is practiced.  Just to name some examples: public lashing, cutting off hands for stealing even a morsel of bread, blinding convicts or hanging them, stoning so-called adulteresses, castrating sexual offenders and the hanging of homosexuals.

Muslims, instead of march out of the suffocating swamps of submission to the meadow of liberty, Allah’s faithful aim to drag the rest of humanity into the deadly Islamic quagmire.

Islam may have been an improvement to the life of the savages that roamed the Arabian deserts some 1400 years ago. However, the 21st century world is not willing to surrender to the clearly failed and failing Islamic experiment, simply because of the claim that it is the one and only true religion of Allah.

Islam is a belief of blood. It lives and thrives on blood. It can be animal blood, enemy blood or even its own blood. Consider the horrific practice of self-flagellation. Shiite faithful march en masse in public places, beating themselves with chains, cutting themselves with knives on their heads, torso and arms, causing blood to gush out and all this to commemorate religious historical events.

Truth be told: violence is the animating force of Islam. Islam is a religion born through violence, raised by violence, thrives on violence and dies without violence.

  1. Well said Amil
    I am in 100% agreement with you.
    Muslims claim there is violence in all religions.So where in in the 27 Books of the New Testament to do Christians preach hatred and killing others?

  2. Why do people insist on using the euphemism “radical Islam”? There is nothing else BUT radical Islam. There are Muslims who pick and choose what to follow in Islam, but that doesn’t change the nature of the ideology. It’s great to share information about the ideology, but until we are honest and stop using qualifying adjectives, there’s no hope for defeating it.

  3. We already have criminal enterprise statutes. Islam is a (cult) criminal enterprise.

    Use a small army of CPAs and attorneys to investigate every jihad attack. Follow 100% of the money back to its source. Track anyone involved, in any way. Then use the RICO statutes to jail, confiscated, and shut down all involved. That includes:

    M1 – Shutting down mosques involved in any jihad attack.
    M2 – Arrest mullahs involved.
    M3 – Follow, and confiscate, all jihad money back to its source.

  4. Islamic beliefs encourage those who hold them to commit murder and sedition. This automatically puts them within the criminal jurisdiction of the State and justifies the use even of the death penalty against those who profess these beliefs, taking account of their blasphemous character.

  5. The following verses propagate hatred and bigotry towards non-believers and even methods to torture them:

    Quran (22:19-21) – But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads; Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron

    Quran (4:56) – Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise

    Quran (56:92-94) – But if he is of the rejecters, the erring, then the welcome will be boiling water and roasting at hell-fire

    The following encourages terror attacks.

    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.

    I don’t have time to read the whole Quran, but the above verses support the idea that Islam is inherently violent as claimed.
