Terrorism cannot start with Christian's because there are no provisions that support terrorism unlike the Quran. It is easy to manipulate the simple minded into terrorism and other barbaric acts because it is found at the centre of Islamic teaching. Moslems are beasts...though not all
lol bro with the hate you harbour for Muslims, it'll be very easy to brain wash you into terrorism. your previous posts really scared me. face your religion let every other person face Thiers, life is that simple. There are bad Christian, there are bad Muslims or is killing the only sin? leave those that decide to kill for their religion, on that day we go know.

I beg to differ.
For the instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.--psalm 19:7

If you obey and serve him, you shall spend your days in prosperity, and your years in pleasures.--Job 36:11

But truly the Bible is filled with folklores and made up stories , however it is an influential book nonetheless

My friend, you are right in saying people hate Islam. Give me one good reason why people shouldn't hate Islam? By their fruits you shall know them. Moslems keep professing their religion as peaceful but hate, violence and murder is what we see from them.

Go and do this homework yourself. Compare all the countries with Islam against counties without Islam and see how they are in terms of peace and tolerance.

UsA, UK, France, Germany, China....peace
Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Nigeria....war

Christian - Christian: peace
Christian - jews: peace
Christian- Buddhist: peace
Hindu - Buddhist: peace
Islam - Jews: war
Islam- Christian: war
Islam- Buddhist:war
Islam - Islam : war

Most moslems are so dumb, they don't even ask questions as to why their religion is so violent. They don't like to think at all. They are so closed minded and unsophisticated. The ones that decide to seek truth with an open mind end up discovering the evil in Islam.

I am not hating or saying this out of sentiment. I am not saying this because I am a religious fanatic.I have absolutely nothing to gain by an increased Christian population except more peace. I hate Islam and I am not apologetic about it.

I only pity the sincere people who have been deceived into thinking Islam is from the one and true God.
but WW1 and WW2 where not war abi ? they are friendly football match shey ?

Don't you mean thats just you want to see & believe, You carry a whole country with millions of Muslims. but because of a few thousand who use the name of Islam for violence, You decided to condemn over a billion Muslims who practice Islam.

My brother if Islam is really about violence, I ASSURE YOU, with our population we would have wiped out the whole world. Just think about it, if a few thousands can cause you to tremble, Imagine what over a billion could do.

The western media keep portraying Islam as evil & Muslims as terrorists, but if you can truly use ur brain, how could the action of few less than 1% be used to judge 99%

And WE ARE EVERYWHERE, EVEN AT THE VATICAN CITY, So in summary ur stuck with us, wether u like us or not, we go still dey with you even on judgment day
u claiming population I think you can relate to these

Let's be realistic & objective. No book is more influential than the Quran. With over a billion Muslims around the world, they stick to it more than Christians stick to bible. They even memorize it completely... No religion venerates his book as much as Muslims do to Quran
Your simple comment addresses the Op's ignorance or deliberate bias. This is enough for an open minded person. Does the Op know the meaning of influential?

No one is taking about sin here. I don't care what you do in your private life. Anyone can involve in immorality and debauchery because it is their choice. We all have free will but your free will should not deny another man his right to live.

My friend, get the material facts right before you argue. Ww1 and ww2 was born out of man's greed for wealth and power. It was born out of selfishness which is inherent to a degree in almost everyman. The terrorism we see is just the fruit of Islam. It makes one blood thirsty. Everything about it promotes disregard for human life.

The Quran is a subject of falsehood and plagiarism.

Shut up.


I have read the both the Bible and the quran and I can boldly tell you that the quran is far more philosophical than the Bible. If I'm to pick between both of them, I'll pick the quran and I'm not a religious person. Just someone who's interested in the literature world.


If you do not have a strong mind and you read the quran without bias and preconception, you have a 70% chance of converting to Islam.


Most people who converted to Islam converted immediately after reading the quran.

I have read the Quran twice and I have it on my iPad so stfu. Islam breeds terrorism.

Quran 8:12_13 '[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."'

Quran 9:29-30 'Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled'

If you need more references, let me know.

If you devote your time to study the old testament, you will notice a caption: "this is how it has been to this very day" attached to certain historical events. And a little google search will validate the authenticity of that statement.

So I put it to you that the scriptures is the documentary of truth and life!

Look at what you are saying. Your whole comment reeks of vengeance and hunger for blood, typical of a moslem. You couldn't just make your point without threatening to wipe out existence?

Well, let me sink to your level of brutality. Trust me when i say, only North Korea can wipe the whole Islamic nations if they are to fight. You don not have to believe it but it is a fact. If u are educated enough and conversant with global trends, the you will see that this statement is true. Problem with moslems is that you are too bold to make war threats but the world just keeps quite because in the event of war, innocent lives will be lost. This is unlike moslems who don't value human lives for as long as jihad is concerned. I can even name more countries that will wipe out Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, Iran combined. Only 5 Israeli airforce jet wiped out an entire Egyptian force. I have not even mentioned US, Russia, China.....honestly, if u think any Islamic nation(s) have the military strength to fight any of the aforementioned, then you are naive.

You said I mentioned few small countries? Have you done the research I challenged you do? Name one Islamic country that is not involved in murder, killing etc en mass? In Africa, we have Sudan, Somalia, Gabon...name them. In Asia, we have Iran, Iraq, Qatar, Pakistan, Philistine, Turkey, name them. Only Indonisia is relatively peaceful.

You cannot mention terrorism without Islam. Both words are mutually complementary.

The western people are not just fishing propaganda. They are saying facts. We all see it. Have u ever seen Christian book haram or Christian's killing in the name of Jesus? Have you heard Buddhists killing in the name of Buddha? All we here is Alllaaaaaaaaahhuuuuakbar...and heads rolling.

It is so bad that the president of Egypt once said Islam is the problem of this world and he is right!

Sadly correct. Bitterly the truth.

#1: The Bible
The Bible, from the word biblia, meaning "the book" in Latin, is a collection of vastly different texts from different times, places, styles, and often contradictory sources, especially when you get into the weeds of the Old versus New Testament.


The Old Testament has some of the most violent and lustful stories ever told, starring the bearded badass Moses, while the New Testament's heartthrob Jesus taught us all that we need to love and perhaps punishments, depending on who you ask.


Yep, but it's true. Sorry, J.K. Rowling, but the Bible is the bestselling book series of all time, providing bedrock principles for 2.2 billion people worldwide. And honestly, don't be offended if I didn't mention your specific religious text, like the Quran or the Flying Spaghetti Monster Manual, because they all teach us something.

That's not true Pakistan and Iraq have no business with Israel they are after bigger names like India and the US, as for Egypt they do not look for trouble meaning they don't fight Israel or any other country. Just in case you are not aware the Saudi and the Iranian military is feared because nobody knows much about their arsenal, if you also doubt check the records of Pakistan ISI and compare it to Israel's Mossad then you will know that the Arab world is also powerful and feared.

No one is portraying Islam as evil. If I'm not making a mistake, I think in Saudi Arabia last two weeks they sentenced 7 women to death because the were fighting for women right so women can drive a car. Two of the women right activist are still on the run, please sir what do you call that kind of attitude or behavior does it look kind on women? Is this kind of attitude not portraying Islam evil before the world? I have no problem with an Islamic man except the way they allow religion block their sense of reasoning.

Correction, The house of Saud sentenced 7 women to death, killed a Saudi journalist & also ignored our Muslim brothers in camps in China, HOUSE OF SAUD DOES NOT REPRESENT ISLAMIC INTERESTS, BUT SAUD ROYAL FAMILY
