Mumbai Muslim Terrorists Laughed and Filmed the Dead

I guess this is what Muslims learn after reciting the Quran and being instructed in Jihad, see the article for more:

Father Apoorva, a 57-year-old builder, is still recovering from his injuries. Still reeling with shock, the family was initially even hesitant to tell their name.

Instead, Parikh’s son Rohan, 22, a business student, recounted his father’s experience in an email.

His father had gone to the Oberoi that night for dinner with two of his closest friends, he said.
The three friends were at a restaurant on the first floor of the Oberoi when they heard gunshots. The hotel staff tried to rush the guests out of the kitchen exit.

‘As the guests tried to rush into the kitchen, one terrorist burst into the restaurant and began to shoot anyone that remained in the restaurant. At this point my father was in the kitchen and, along with his two friends, rushed to the fire exit.

‘They had barely descended a few steps when they were trapped from both ends by terrorists.

‘The terrorists then rounded up anyone alive (about 20 people) and made them climb the service staircase to the 19th floor. On reaching the 18th floor landing they made the people line up against a wall.

‘One terrorist then positioned himself on the staircase going up from the landing and the other on the staircase going down from the landing.

‘Then, in a scene right out of the Holocaust, they simultaneously opened fire on the people. My father was towards the centre of the line with his two friends on either side. Out of reflex, or presence of mind, he ducked as soon as the firing began.

‘One bullet grazed his neck, and he fell to the floor as his two friends and several other bodies piled on top of him. The terrorists then pumped another series of bullets into the heap of bodies to finish the job.

‘This time a bullet hit my father in the back hip. Bent almost in double, crushed by the weight of the bodies above him, and suffocating in the torrent of blood rushing down on him from the various bodies my father held on for 10 minutes while the terrorists left the area.

‘When he finally had the courage to wiggle his arms he found that there were four other survivors in the room. They communicated to each other by touch as they were too afraid to make a sound.

‘My father moved just enough to allow himself room to breathe and then lay still. The survivors passed over 12 hours lying still in the heap of bodies too afraid to move.

‘They constantly heard gunfire and hand grenades going off in the other parts of the hotel. They feared that any noise would bring the terrorists back.

‘After approximately 12 hours, the terrorists returned with a camera and flashlight and joked and laughed as they filmed what they thought was a pile of dead bodies.

‘They then moved to the landing below where they set up explosives. On their departing, my father decided that it was too risky to remain where they were, due to the explosives.’

The three survivors then climbed the rest of the stairs to reach an air-cooling plant room where they hid, drinking sips of water from the air-conditioning unit, till Friday, November 28, morning when a commando team rescued them and took them to hospital.

Captured Mumbai terrorist talks while Pakistanis claim it was "Hindu Zionists"

Since the authorities have captured one of the Mumbai Jihadi's, we find out the truth:

“From there, they mandated to kill indiscriminately, particularly white foreign tourists, and spare Muslims split up into five batches. Two of them Ismail and Ajmal took a taxi to Victoria Terminus. Three other batches of two each headed for Oberoi Hotel, Cafe Leopold and Nariman House. The remaining four went to Taj Hotel.”

“Spare Muslims” - why?
Quran 4:93
And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell; he shall abide in it, and Allah will send His wrath on him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement.

Contrast that to:

Quran 9:5
So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

and

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

You see, unbelievers are fine to slay, especially those Jews…but don’t touch another Muslim!

Hindu Zionists?!?

While the captured Jihadi was talking, a Pakistani TV show decided to blame the whole affair on Hindu Zionists. Go here for more and a link to the video, if you can understand.

They "accused India, the US and Israel of hatching a conspiracy to defame Pakistan. The program, anchored by Qudsia Qadri, was completely outrageous and reflected the Pakistani mindset towards India."

UPDATE

Just saw this blog post from Patterico. The MSM has been apologizing on behalf of Islam for so long that journalists are fully blind to Islam's promotion of hatred and violence towards Jews:

On Thursday during CNN’s coverage of the Mumbai terror attacks, a CNN security analyst couldn’t understand why the terrorists targeted a Jewish Center:

And we still - but we still do not know a motive. You know, you look at the Jewish center. Why did they hit the Jewish center? You know, and you look at the other places, you know, big icons where there are going to be a lot of people. And that’s what terrorists do. They hit places that they consider soft targets where they can have the most bang for the buck, if you will, and where there are a lot of people - hotels, train stations, those kind of things.

FURTHER UPDATE
Jihadwatch just reported on this article in the Washington Post, which tells us a little more about the captured terrorist:

Bharti, the interrogator, said Kasab has told police that he is from a village called Faridkot, in Pakistan's Punjab province, and that he dropped out of school after the fourth grade. His father owned a food stall. An acquaintance introduced him to an outlawed group called Lashkar-i-Taiba in 2005, Bharti said, and Kasab later trained with the group in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani-controlled Kashmir.

"He went through different stages of training. At first, it was the recitation of the Koran and lectures about jihad. He was being prepared mentally. Then small-weapons training," Bharti said in an interview. "Then came the hard physical, marine training. At first, Kasab used to vomit. They were taught how to survive at sea, on ground, and how to control thirst and hunger. From a batch of about 25, 10 were handpicked for the Mumbai mission."

Now even the Washington Post understands that Islam had something to do with it. Maybe CNN will realize why they attacked the Jewish Center after all.

ANOTHER UPDATE

New data has come on to confirm that Mumbai attacks were in the name of Islam, and targeted Jews...Phone Transcripts of Mumbai Attacks Indicate Gunmen Not Acting Alone:

The handlers told a team of gunmen who had seized a Jewish center to shoot hostages if necessary.

"If you are still threatened, then don't saddle yourself with the burden of the hostages. Immediately kill them," he said.

Six Jewish foreigners, including a rabbi and his wife, were killed inside the Jewish center.

Later in the night, nearly 24 hours after the attacks began, the handlers urged the gunmen to "be strong in the name of Allah"

"Brother, you have to fight. This is a matter of prestige of Islam," the handler said. "You may feel tired or sleepy, but the commandos of Islam have left everything behind, their mothers, their fathers."

The gunmen were told several times not to kill any Muslim hostages.

UK Sharia - Wife Beating and Inheritance Mistakes



















The woman in black wanted an Islamic divorce. She told the religious judge that her husband hit her, cursed her and wanted her dead.

But her husband was opposed, and the Islamic scholar adjudicating the case seemed determined to keep the couple together. So, sensing defeat, she brought our her secret weapon: her father....The judge promptly reversed himself and recommended divorce.

UK Sharia law in action - the beaten wife has to bring a man into the mix to get justice. She barely has a voice.

What an awful site, yet it continues. I wish the politicians that instituted Sharia simply read a few paragraphs from the Quran, like this one (4:34):

Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.

If you fear desertion, admonish them, leave them alone in bed and beat them. Oh, and the husband is both judge and jury. It's verses like this and the supporting Hadith that bring about this kind of counseling:

If the husband beats her, she should go to the police and have a divorce, Qurashi said. "But if he's slapped her only once or something like that," she said, "and he admits he has made a mistake and promised not to do it again, then we say, 'You have to forgive.' "


Clearly, Qurashi didn't talk to the first woman who got more than a few slaps. That's because Qurashi is an "unofficial" counselor - after all, she's not a man. BTW, since when is it ok to slap once "or something like that"? Tell us Qurashi - what if the one and only slap injures the woman? Explain to us where you draw the line. Does anybody else see the insanity here?

Then, of course, there's the unfairness in inheritance distribution, never mind all the inheritance mistakes. Well UK Sharia has an answer for that:

Three months ago, for example, a wealthy Bangladeshi family asked Dr. Raza's council to resolve an inheritance dispute. It was resolved according to Shariah, he said. That meant the male heirs received twice as much as the female heirs.

How about this quote - wife beating, child abuse and Jew hating all rolled into one:

A Pakistan-born 33-year-old mother of five explained that her husband would beat her and her children. "He threatens to kill us," she said, as her daughter translated from Urdu. "He calls me a Jew and an infidel."

Isn't Islam great? Go here for more:

Islam's cult of Allah and Muhammad's terror - 3

This is the third in a series of posts that has less to do with discussing Islam with Muslims, and more to do with non-Muslim ignorance to the vicious cult of Islam.

In Parts 1 and 2, I demonstrated that Islam means "submission" not "peace," and that the Quran is extremely violent when you understand verse abrogation, and the history of Muhammad.

Here, I will point out the fallacy of Islam's supposed tolerance of other faiths and of atheists. Let's start with the great Ayaan Hirsi Ali educating the uneducated on Dhimmitude and on Muslim intolerance


Dhimmis and "People of the Book"

So what is Ayaan Hirsi Ali referring to, and do 1000 year old churches and synagogues tell the full story? What about the apologist retort that Muslims protect "People of the Book" (Jews and Christians)? Well, first here is the Quran verse referenced by Ayaah Hirsi Ali:

9:29
Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the (Jizya) tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.


Sounds almost exactly like her words in the video, except worse. Fight against them until they pay the Jizya tax acknowledging inferiority and live in a state of subjection. The word to describe people in such a state is "Dhimmi." How does it look in practice? (from
Al-Maghili, a fifteenth century Muslim theologian)

On the day of payment {of the jizya} they {the dhimmi} shall be assembled in a public place like the suq {place of commerce}. They should be standing there waiting in the lowest and dirtiest place. The acting officials representing the Law shall be placed above them and shall adopt a threatening attitude so that it seems to them, as well as to others, that our object is to degrade them by pretending to take their possessions. They will realize that we are doing them a favor in accepting from them the jizya and letting them go free. (Al-Maghili, quoted in Bat Ye'or, The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam, 361.)

Here's more from Sufi theologian and jurist al-Ghazali:

…the dhimmi is obliged not to mention Allah or His Apostle…Jews, Christians, and Majians must pay the jizya …on offering up the jizya, the dhimmi must hang his head while the official takes hold of his beard and hits [the dhimmi] on the protruberant bone beneath his ear [i.e., the mandible]… They are not permitted to ostentatiously display their wine or church bells…their houses may not be higher than the Muslim’s, no matter how low that is. The dhimmi may not ride an elegant horse or mule; he may ride a donkey only if the saddle[-work] is of wood. He may not walk on the good part of the road. They [the dhimmis] have to wear [an identifying] patch [on their clothing], even women, and even in the [public] baths…[dhimmis] must hold their tongue….

Dhimmis were also prohibited from building churches, proselytizing or openly practicing their religion. Sounds like modern day Saudi Arabia, correct? Well, this is one reason why Wahabi Muslims in Saudi Arabia think they have the purest version of Islam. Dhimmitude was and is not pleasant, and it was also not the rule. In many cases, Jews and Christians were just made into slaves or killed. Find a full history here from Bat Ye'or and other scholars.

What about those that were not perfect in their Dhimmitude or did not want to live in a state of subjection:


…the whole Gaza region up to Cesarea was sacked and devastated in the campaign of 634. Four thousand Jewish, Christian, and Samaritan peasants who defended their land were massacred. The villages of the Negev were pillaged…Towns ...were isolated and closed their gates. In his sermon on Christmas day 634, the patriarch of Jerusalem, Sophronius, lamented…that the Christians were being forcibly kept in Jerusalem: ‘…chained and nailed by fear of the Saracens (Muslims),’ whose ‘savage, barbarous and bloody sword’ kept them locked up in the town…


Sophronius, in his sermon on the Day of the Epiphany 636, bewailed the destruction of the churches and monasteries, the sacked towns, the fields laid waste, the villages burned down by the nomads who were overrunning the country.


In a letter the same year to Sergius, the patriarch of Constantinople, he mentions the ravages wrought by the Arabs. Thousands of people perished in 639, victims of the famine and plague that resulted from these destructions.

According to [the Muslim chronicler] Baladhuri (d. 892 C.E.), 40,000 Jews lived in Caesarea alone at the Arab conquest, after which all trace of them is lost...

The above is only from the history of Palestine. In Moorish Spain, churches were turned right into mosques. In a strange irony, Muslims in Spain are now asking for equal rights to the Church of Cordoba. This church had been Christian, was turned into a mosque by the Moors, then turned back into a church. Destruction or alteration of Dhimmi property continues until today - Iran destroyed seven ancient synagogues just last week.

What about those that were not "People of the Book"? Well, let's start with the estimated millions of Hindus killed during the Muslim conquest of India.
K.S. Lal estimates up to 80 million killed, and, while others have criticized this number, most scholars concede of a death toll in the many millions.

Of course there are the 1/4 million Armenians murdered by the Turks. Then there were the original non-Muslims who lived in the core of today's Islamic strongholds: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt...was that a peaceful conversion? Well, it wasn't called "Muslim conquest" for nothing.

More in the next post...

Reaction to Fitna - Pat Condell

There have been a number of reactions to Fitna:

From Muslim countries: Seething, with threats of violence.

From Western nations: Condemnation and cowardice. The freedom of speech that we hold dear is discarded at the slightest threat.

No political body seems to speak for me. Internet bloggers and Youtubers are the only ones that are being honest and direct. My favorite...Pat Condell:

Fitna : Geert Wilders' film


Click and watch.

So the movie is finally out. Finally...after the Dutch parliament requested that Dutch MP Geert Wilders not show it, after the EU went to censor it, and after Network Solutions prevented even an announcement that the film was coming.

Watch it. In its entirety. You'll have to do it on the Internet because the MSM will try to hide this film, even though it's only 15 minutes. You'll join the 1 million viewers who saw it in only the first 30 minutes of its release!

Then watch for the seething violence that will follow.

Update:
Apparently, Sarkozy has “officially declared that France would provide every necessary support to aid the Netherlands in the suppression of any Muslim violence” that may result from the release of Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ controversial documentary film called “Fitna.”

Further update:
After threats of violence, LiveLeak was forced to take down the film. The great thing is that through their death threats, Muslims have demonstrated exactly what Geert Wilders is trying to prove. Islam is clearly a violent, sick religion whose followers have lost their ability to reason.

The good news is that the Youtube link is still working, and I've added that at the top of the page. Watch the LiveLeak version underneath to hear the official statement from the company.

Another update:
LiveLeak decided not to cower in the face of violent Islam. The video is back up!

Wafa Sultan vs. Islamists on Al-Jazeera

Nothing needs to be said. This words of this brilliant woman are enough.

Update - Al-Jazeera apologizes
Al-Jazeera apologized ( also YNET) because their male Muslim speakers got their collective asses handed to them by a woman, an atheist woman no less. Hilarious.

Update - Wafa Sultan in hiding
Still embarrassed by Wafa Sultan's amazing performance on Al-Jazeera, Muslims have issued enough death threats for Wafa Sultan to go into hiding. Don't you love discussing Islam with Muslims?






The following are excerpts from a debate between Arab-American psychiatrist Wafa Sultan and Egytian Islamist Tal'at Rmeih, which aired on Al-Jazeera on March 4, 2008.

Egyptian Islamist Tal'at Rmeih: "The West only understands the language of force. Contacts with the West which are not based on real force are futile. One day, America declared that the North Korean nuclear dossier would be referred to the U.N. Security Council. North Korea issued a one-line declaration: 'Korea will consider this to be a hostile act of war.' The Americans bit their tongues, and that was it. The West understands nothing but the language of force, and attacks nobody but the weak. Therefore, our nation – with all its people, and organizations, institutions, rulers, and subjects – is required to adopt a resolute stand of resistance and confrontation in the face of these criminal and hostile acts. The West, in this confrontation, which is not divorced from the massacres that are taking place in Palestine and Iraq…The embassies of Denmark, Holland, France, and the U.S. are not more precious to us than Iraq, which has been destroyed, or than Palestine, which is experiencing a real – not fabricated – holocaust. These countries are subject to a holocaust and a massacre. How can we confront this? By Allah, if we issued a communiqué, signed by all the Arab and Islamic organizations and institutions, the West would bite its tongue and stop all this. By Allah, if the Arab summit decided to boycott Denmark, they would all be disgraced. By Allah, if the masses of the nation would gather for one hour only around the embassies of Denmark, those despicable lowlifes would be in a position of retreat, not attack."

[…]

Arab-American Psychiatrist Wafa Sultan: "All religions and faiths, throughout the history of humanity, have been subject to criticism and affronts. With time, this has helped in their reform and development. Any belief that chops off the heads of its critics is doomed to turn into terrorism and tyranny. This has been the condition of Islam, from its inception to this day. Islam has sentenced [its critics] to prison, and whoever crosses the threshold of that prison meets his death. The Danish cartoons have managed to break down the first brick in the wall of that prison, and to open up a window, through which the sunrays enter, after a lengthy darkness. The Danish newspaper exercised its freedom of speech. Liberties are the holiest thing in the West, and nothing is more important. But if Islam were not the way it is, those cartoons would never have appeared. They did not appear out of the blue, and the cartoonist did not dig them out of his imagination. Rather, they are a reflection of his knowledge. Westerners who read the words of the Prophet Muhammad 'Allah has given me sustenance under the shadow of my sword' cannot imagine Muhammad's turban in the shape of a dove of peace rather than in the shape of a bomb. The Muslims must learn how to listen to the criticism of others, and maybe then they will reexamine their terrorist teachings. When they manage to do so, the world will view them in a better light, and consequently, it will draw them in a better light. The reactions of the Muslims, which were characterized by savageness, barbarism, and backwardness, only increased the value of these cartoons, and gave them more importance than they merited, simply because they proved that these cartoons were true, and that the message they were conveying was true. The Muslim is an irrational creature ruled by instincts. Those teachings have deprived him of his mind, incited his emotions, and reduced him to the level of an inferior creature that cannot control himself or react to events rationally."

[…]

Tal'at Rmeih: "God help me. First, Islam is too great to be harmed by the publisher of the cartoon, or by that woman who is talking over there. The truth is that everything she said is 100% false, I'm sad to say. It seems to me that the American and Zionist intelligence agencies have begun to produce people who are hostile to their own nation."

[…]

Dr. Faysal Al-Qassem, Moderator: "How come freedom of expression in the West is sacred only when it comes to degrading the Muslims? Are they allowed to talk about the Holocaust? Are they allowed to talk about Christianity? That is the question. Cinemas were burned down in the West when they talked about Christ."

Wafa Sultan: "I live in America, and I never heard of a single cinema that was burned down here. Where do you get your information from? It sounds as if you are living in America, not me."

Moderator: "In France."

Wafa Sultan: "This is completely baseless. You should criticize your own beliefs just as Christians criticize their beliefs."

[…]

Moderator: "Don’t you think that you are treating the viewers like fools? You present some trivial reactions as barbaric. Have you forgotten that the country in which you live destroyed Iraq in its entirety, killing 1.5 million Iraqis and driving five million out of their homes? Didn't you see the dozens of children annihilated in Gaza, in a holocaust, as Israel itself admits? When a man blows himself up, he becomes a terrorist, but when you annihilate an entire people, whole countries, it is considered a humanitarian act?! Who are you kidding?"

[…]

Wafa Sultan: "Why are they upset about what is going on in Gaza, while the Koran says to them: 'They shall kill and be killed.' So here they are – killing and being killed. What's wrong with that?"

Tal'at Rmeih: "Leave the Koran out of it. If you want to talk politics, go ahead."

Moderator: "I beg you to stick to politics. He talked only about politics."

Wafa Sultan: "Dr. Faysal, you know that you cannot separate Islam from politics. Islam is not a religion, but politics. You must let me express my views the way I want. When you called me, you didn't say I was not allowed to discuss Islam or the Koran. Islam says to them that they will 'kill or be killed', and here they are—killing and being killed. So what's wrong with that? They want to be martyred and to meet their black-eyed virgins, and Israel is merely helping them get what they want. What's wrong with that? If you want to change the course of events, you must reexamine your terrorist teachings, you must recognize and respect the right of the other to live, you must teach your children love, peace, coexistence, and productive work. When you do that, the world will respect you, will consider you in a better light, and will draw you in a better light."

Moderator: "Can you denounce the Zionist massacres in Gaza? That's a simple question. Do you have the courage to do so?"

Wafa Sultan: "I can denounce the Palestinians and the Israelis alike. Hamas chose this path, and you have to pay the price for your choices. When you decide you want peace – I am sure that Israel wants peace, but as long as you keep reciting those teachings, which are full of hatred, rancor, and terrorism, you will be unable to make peace with others. You must recognize and respect Israel's right to live. You must teach your children love, peace, and coexistence. Only then will there be peace."

[…]

Moderator: "Do you dare to say that the number of people who died in the Jewish Holocaust is even one less [than what they claim]? Do you dare to say that? Why don't you dare to even touch on Jewish history – let alone on Jewish religion and sanctities? Why do you flex your muscles only against the oppressed Muslims?"

Wafa Sultan: "Why do you want me to deny historical documents that confirm that the Holocaust took place? If there was no proof, I would deny it. But I cannot deny history, knowledge, and documents confirming that the Holocaust indeed took place. Why do you want me to deny the facts?"

Moderator: "From what she says, it is clear that she has no problem denying the holy books, but she is adamant about not denying historical documents."

Wafa Sultan: "Can you as a Muslim deny the massacre of the Jews of the Bani Qureyza tribe, by Muhammad and his followers?"

[…]

Tal'at Rmeih: "There is a gang that controls [the West], and you are not allowed to criticize Israel or the Holocaust. Anyone who criticized the Holocaust was placed on trial. Noam Chomsky wrote one line about the Holocaust in a book, and the book was recalled from the market. Bernard Lewis – that great philosopher – said something about the Holocaust and was placed on trial. What did the American president say to the U.S. forces sent to the Philippines? He gave them two orders: 'Kill all people above the age of ten, and convert [the rest] to Christianity.'"

[…]

Wafa Sultan: "Did you invite me to the show to hear hollow speeches, which have been around for 1,400 years?"

Tal'at Rmeih: "Allah be praised, we have an identity and a culture."

Wafa Sultan: "How can someone who believes in killing people who do not pray possibly criticize liberties in the West? This is a farce. What past is he defending? Is he defending the invasions and lootings?"

Tal'at Rmeih: "I am defending the past of the Islamic nation, which was the beacon of knowledge for the entire world…"

Wafa Sultan: "…polygamy, beheadings, chopping of heads and feet on alternate sides, accusing people of heresy, and drinking camel urine, as a cure for all ailments – is this the past he is defending?"

Tal'at Rmeih: "No, I am defending a magnificent past of a magnificent nation, which was the cradle of knowledge and civilization, at a time when the most that people in the West could do was to catch a rabbit and scurry back to their caves. This nation has made the greatest contribution to civilization and humanity. Our religion is not complete without recognition of other religions. We are the ones who have called for tolerance and respect for religions."

Islam's cult of Allah and Muhammad's terror - 2

From the previous post, it is clear that the Quran is full of violent, vicious verses. Moreover, these verses abrogate (replace) the earlier, peaceful verses that they contradict. With this in mind, it is clear that the Quran is violent, hateful book.

Many apologists will often take another next ignorant step. They commit the tu quoque fallacy by comparing the Quran to the Bible. As an atheist, I can ignore the fallacy and see the violence in both books as abhorrent.

For the sake of argument, they are both violent - The Bible has 871 verses of cruelty and violence while the Quran has 512, but, since the Quran is much shorter, you can see that the Quran has about 3 X as violent percentage-wise: 8.2% vs. 2.8%. We can take this one step further, in light of abrogation, and realize that the Quran is much more than 3 times as violent. Unfortunately, there is more. If we add in verses that may not direct violence, but demonstrate hatred or viciousness towards unbelievers, the Quran shows its true ugly self:
By far the greatest portion, however, over 60% of the text of the Koran, is devoted to polemics against unbelievers, justifications for placing them in submission or killing them, on rewards for those who believe in Allah (especially for those who war against unbelievers), and punishment for unbelievers on earth and in the hereafter.
However, counting verses is not enough. There is more.

It is important to understand the differences between Islam and the other two Abrahamic religions. These differences explain why the Quran's violent words are much more dangerous:

1. Muslims consider the Quran to be the word of Allah, NOT the inspired word of Allah. Thus the Quran is considered perfect in the eyes of Muslims. No mistakes. Thus, there is no doubt on what to do when it says "beat your wife" if you fear disloyalty or "slay the unbeliever wherever you find them."

2. The Quran's words are considered timeless and universal, regardless of the context from which they came.

3. Islam is considered more than just a religion. It is considered a prescriptive guide to life, law, politics, warfare,...many have called Islam a "political religion" or even a socio-political system with religion as just an element.

Now, these points together, you have a violent, racist, misogynist guide to life that is timeless, universal and infallible. At this point, it pays to just list some of these horrible verses in the guide:

Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits, for Allah does not love transgressors. 2:190

And slay them wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out, for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. 2:191

And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and let there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression. 2:193

Fighting is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not. 2:216

Let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. To him who fights in the cause of Allah, - whether he is slain or gets victory – soon shall We give him a reward of great value. 4:74

Of the Unbelievers: "seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks." 4:89

Allah has granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home. 4:95

…"for the Unbelievers are open enemies to you." 4:101

For the Unbelievers, Allah has prepared a humiliating punishment. 4:102

O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah anything but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was no more than a Messenger of Allah… Do not say "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One God: Glory be to Him: far exalted is He above having a son. 4:171

From those too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the Message that was sent to them: so We estranged them, with enmity and hatred between one and the other, to the Day of Judgment. And soon will Allah show them what they have done. 5:14

In blasphemy indeed are those that say that God is Christ the son of Mary. 5:17

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them. 5:51

They do blaspheme who say: "God is Christ the son of Mary." They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a trinity: for there is no God except one God Allah. If they do not desist from their word of blasphemy, verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them. Christ the son of Mary was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him. 5:72- 73, 5:75

Of the Jews: ‘When in their insolence they transgressed all prohibitions, We said to them: "Be you apes, despised and rejected."’ 7:166

"Many are the men We have made for Hell…" 7:179

Remember your Lord inspired the angels with the message: "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: you smite them above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them." 8:12

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah. Whatever you spend in the cause of Allah shall be repaid to you and you shall not be treated unjustly. 8:60

O Messenger! Rouse the Believers among you to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish two thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are people without understanding. 8:65

…Then fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war…9:5

Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you to victory over them, heal the breasts of the Believers. 9:14

Fight those who do not believe in Allah … until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. 9:29

… Allah will send His punishment from Himself or by our hands. 9:52

Therefore, when you meet the Unbelievers in fight, smite at their necks; at length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly on them… He lets you fight in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the way of Allah, - He will never let their deeds be lost. 47:4

It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering of the forces. Little did you think that they would get out: and they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But the wrath of Allah came to them from quarters from which they had little expected it, and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers. 59:2

That is because they resisted Allah and His Messenger: and if any one resists Allah, verily Allah is severe in punishment. Whether you cut down O you Muslims the tender palm-trees, or if you left them standing on their roots, it was by leave of Allah, and in order that He might cover with shame the rebellious transgressors. 59:4,5

They will not fight you even together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Strong is their fighting spirit amongst themselves: you would think they are united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom. 59:14

Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure. 61:4



More verses (with some repeats) that inspire hatred:

On Jews and Other "Disbelievers"

[Christians, Pagans, and Jews are all castigated as unbelievers, but the Koran's main thrust is against Jews. Unbelievers in Muhammad as a prophet of God and in the Koran as God's word, are depicted not only as infidels, but are reviled as vile liars and deceivers. The theme permeating the Koran is typified by the following verse]:

5.78.. Those of the children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of David and Jesus the son of Mary;... Evil is that which they did... Evil is that which their souls have sent before them, for God's wrath is on them, and in the torment shall they dwell for aye. But had they believed in God and the Prophet, and what was revealed to him, they had not taken these for their patrons; but many of them are evildoers.

[This theme is presented in the Koran over and over again. The contexts change, but the message remains the same. The precepts presented, one must emphasize, are to be taken as the lessons that Allah himself commands to be believed as the means to avoid being boiled in Hell.

2.92. Did not Moses came to you with clear proofs, and yet you worshiped the calf after he left, and you were polytheists and wrong-doers.

2.96. Verily, you will find the Jews the greediest of mankind for life and even greedier than those who ascribe partners [other gods] to Allah.

2.100. Is it not [the case] that every time they make a covenant, some party among them throw it aside? Nay! the truth is most of them believe not.

2.124. And when his Lord tried Abraham with certain words, he fulfilled them. He [Allah] said: "Surely I will make you an Imam of men" . Abraham said: :And [what] of my offspring?" My covenant does not include the unjust, said He [Allah].

3.75. Among the people of the Scripture [Jews and Christians] is he who, if entrusted with a Cantar [a great amount of wealth, etc.], will readily pay it back; and among them there is he who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless you constantly stand demanding, because they say: "There is no blame on us to betray and take the properties of the illiterates [Arabs]." But they tell a lie against Allah while they know it.

3.78. Among them are those who distort the Book with their tongues, so that you may think it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book. They say: "This is from Allah," but it is not from Allah. They speak a lie against Allah while they know it. Do not make friends of those outside your religion, since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse...

3.119. Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures while they disbelieve in your Book [Koran]. And when they meet you, they say, "We believe". But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say [to them]: "Perish in your rage."

3.120. If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqûûn (the pious), not the least harm will their cunning do to you.

4.161. And their taking usury though indeed they were forbidden it and their devouring the property of people falsely, and We have prepared for the unbelievers from among them a painful chastisement.

4.156. And because of their [the Jew's] disbelief and uttering against Mary a grave false charge [that she has committed illegal sexual intercourse].

4.157. And because of their saying [in boast], "We killed Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of Jesus was put over another man... For surely; they killed him, not Jesus son of Mary.

4.159. And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), but must believe in him, son of Mary as only a Messenger of Allah and a human being... And on the Day of Resurrection, he [Jesus] will be a witness against them.

4.161. And their taking of Ribââ [usury] though they were forbidden from taking it and their devouring of men's substance wrongfully [bribery, etc.]. And We have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful torment

4.50. Look, how they invent a lie against Allah...

4.52. They are those whom Allah has cursed, and he whom Allah curses, you will not find for him any helper.

5.51. O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and Christians for friends; they are but friends of one another; and whoever among you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them.

5.58. And when you call to prayer they make it a mockery and a joke, because they are a people who will not understand.

5.60. ...Those Jews who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, some of whom He has transformed into monkeys and swine...

5.62. You see many of them [Jews] hurrying for sin and transgression, and doing illegal things [bribes and usury]. Evil indeed is that which they have been doing.

5.63. Why do not the rabbis and the doctors of law prohibit them from their speaking of what is sinful and their consuming what is unlawfully acquired? Certainly evil is that which they work...

5.66. ...As for most of them, evil is what they do.

7.40. ...The doors of heaven shall not be opened for them, nor shall they enter the garden until the camel pass through the eye of the needle.

7.41. They shall have a bed of hell-fire... thus do We reward the unjust.

8.55. Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve.

8.56. Those with whom you make an agreement, then they break their agreement every time...

62.5. The likeness of those who were charged with the Torah, then they did not observe it, is as the likeness of the ass bearing books, evil is the likeness of the people who reject the communications of Allah.

Regarding Christianity

[Many references to Jesus appear in the Koran. The Gospel is accepted as a holy book to be followed, and Jesus is cited as a prophet, but Jesus's divinity is denied]:

23.91. Never did Allah take to Himself a son, and never was there with him any (other) god -- in that case would each god have certainly taken away what he created, and some of them would certainly have overpowered others; glory be to Allah above what they describe!

Fighting "Unbelievers"

[Slaughtering unbelievers is authorized with some nominal"limits." Killing unbelievers becomes an obligation under many circumstances. Unbelievers are to be spared if they become subject to believers, and pay an obligatory tax].

2.190. Fight in the Way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits.

2.191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief and worshiping of other gods along with Allah) is worse than killing.

2.193. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah and worship is only for Allah..

2.216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you, though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you.

2.243. Did you [O Muhammad] not think of those who went forth from their homes in thousands, fearing death? Allah said to them, "Die!" Then He restored them to life.

3.12. Say [O Muhammad] to those who disbelieve: "You will be defeated and gathered together to Hell, and worst indeed is that place to rest."

[The following passages refer to two battles against Jewish communities, one at Badr, in which the Islamic forces were victorious, and the other at Uhud, in which they were defeated]:

3.13. There has already been a sign for you, O Jews, in the two armies that met [at Badr]: One fought in the Cause of Allah; the others were disbelievers. The believers saw the disbelievers with their own eyes [as] twice their number, although they were thrice their number.

3.139. So do not become weak against your enemy, nor be sad, and you will be victorious if you are indeed believers.

3.141. So does Allah test [or purify] the believers [from sins] and destroy the disbelievers.

3.142. Do you think that you will enter Paradise before Allah tests those of you who fought [in His Cause]?

3.143. You wished for martyrdom before you met it. Now you have seen it openly with your own eyes.

[The Koran then turns to the battle of Uhud. The exhortations are rationalizations of the ignominious defeat of the Muslim forces]:

3.155. Those of you who turned back on the day the two hosts met, it was Shaitâân [Satan] who caused them to backslide[run away from the battlefield] because of some [sins] they had earned. But Allah, indeed, has forgiven them.

3.156. O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve and who say to their brethren when they go out to fight: "If they had stayed with us, they would not have died..." It is Allah that gives life and causes death.

3.157. And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all that they amass [of worldly wealth, etc.].

3.158. And whether you die or you are slain, verily to Allah shall you be gathered.

3.166. And what befell you on the day when the two armies met was with Allah's knowledge, that He might know the believers.

3.167. And that He might know the hypocrites. It was said to them: Come, fight in Allah's way, or defend yourselves. They said: "If we knew fighting, we would certainly have followed you." They were on that day much nearer to unbelief than to belief. They said with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and Allah best knows what they conceal.

3.168. Those who said of their brethren whilst they [themselves] held back: "Had they obeyed us, they would not have been killed." Say [to them]: "Then avert death from yourselves if you speak the truth."

3.169. Think not of those who are killed in Allah's way as dead. Nay, they are alive with their Lord are provided sustenance from their Lord.

3.170. They rejoice in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His Bounty, rejoicing for those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind [not yet martyred] that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve.

3.172. Those who answered [the Call of] Allah and the Messenger after being wounded; for those of them who did good deeds and feared Allah, there is a great reward

4.74. Therefore let those who would trade this world's life for the Hereafter fight in the cause of Allah.. Whoever fights in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward.

4.75. . What reason have you for not fighting in the cause of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children..

4.76. Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan; surely the strategy of the Satan is weak.

4.89. They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be like them; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly [follow] in Allah's way. But if they turn back [to disbelief], then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

4.91. You will find [those hypocrites] who would like to be safe from you and [also] secure from their own people. As often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong. Therefore, if they do not withdraw from you, offer you peace, and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; against these We have given you a clear authority.

8.17. You did not slay them, it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote [the enemy], but it was Allah Who smote, and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself.

8.41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth of it is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger [Muhammad], and to the near relatives [and also] the orphans, the poor, and the wayfarer...

8.57. Therefore if you gain the mastery of them in war, then punish them severely in order to disperse those who are in their rear, that they may learn a lesson.

8.65. O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty steadfast ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred steadfast of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand.

8.66. Now Allah has lightened your burden, for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are a hundred steadfast of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand they shall overcome two thousand by Allah's permission

8.67. It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives unless he has fought and triumphed in the land; you desire the frail goods of this world, while Allah desires [for you] the hereafter.

8.69. So enjoy the booty you have gained in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allah.

9.5. So when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. But if they repent and perform prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.

9.13. What! will you not fight a people who broke their oaths and aimed at the expulsion of the Apostle, and they attacked you first; do you fear them? But Allah is most deserving that you should fear Him, if you are believers.

9.14. Fight them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and bring you victory over them, and heal the hearts of a believing people.

9.29. Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

Women in the Koran

2.223. Your wives are a tilth [fertile ground or "receptacle for your seed"] for you, so go into your tilth when you like, and do good beforehand for yourselves, and be careful (of your duty) to Allah, and know that you will meet Him, and give good news to the believers.

4.34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women because Allah has made some to excel others and because they spend out of their property. Good women are therefore devoutly obedient, guarding their chastity and their husband's property. Those [women] on whose part you fear disobedience, first admonish them, then refuse to share their bed, and last, beat them. Then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them.

22.31. Say to the believing women that they cast down their eyes and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments; let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or male servants not having need [of women], or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known

--------------------------------

I know I've missed a lot, even for the Quran. Also, the violence continues in a much more prescriptive way in the Had, and there is a lot more prescriptive violence in the Hadith for those interested. Here are some links to lists of vicious Quran and Hadith passages:

Islam's cult of Allah and Muhammad's terror

This next series of posts has less to do with discussing Islam with Muslims, and more to do with non-Muslim ignorance to the vicious cult of Islam. I decided to write this post after receiving many questions by non-Muslims and seeing many lies and obfuscations by Muslims.

Most non-Muslims will often repeat the Muslim propaganda that Islam means "peace." They will often follow that up with Quran quotes that make the "peaceful" point or a paraphrase of said points. I admit that I did the same thing immediately after 9-11...before I spent the time to read the Quran. Then, I spent some time reading the Hadith, and my mistakes became even more clear. Both "religion of peace" propaganda points are false.

Meaning of Islam

The first point is a plain old lie. Islam means "submission." You can check this anywhere on the web, and two simple sources are the Wikipedia for Islam and an Islamic site called submission.org. Here's Wikipedia:
The word Islām is derived from the Arabic verb Aslama, which means to accept, surrender or submit.
Muslims are those people that have agreed to submit to Allah. They also want the rest of the world to join them (violence quite ok):
9:29
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Does the Quran promote violence or peace?

The short answer - the Quran appears to promotes both, but really promotes violence. When listening to Muslims, you will often hear them only quote the peaceful passages. However, they are practicing Taqqiyah - misleading with dishonesty for the greater purpose of promoting Islam. Unfortunately, the peaceful passages are abrogated by the later more violent passages. Let me quote from JihadWatch.org:
The principle of abrogation -- al-naskh wa al-mansukh (the abrogating and the abrogated) -- directs that verses revealed later in Muhammad's career "abrogate" -- i.e., cancel and replace -- earlier ones whose instructions they may contradict. Thus, passages revealed later in Muhammad's career, in Medina, overrule passages revealed earlier, in Mecca. The Quran itself lays out the principle of abrogation:
2:106. Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We {Allah} abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things?
Now let's put everything together by first giving an extremely brief history of Muhammad and Islam:

Mohammad started Islam in Mecca while under the protection of his wealthy, much older wife, Khadija and his uncle Abu Talib. Muhammad was inspired by the monotheistic Jews and Christians, whom he met during trade and travel. Although protected, Muhammad and his followers were in a relatively weak position while in Mecca. Thus, the Meccan verses of the Quran show humility and are relatively peaceful (e.g., 2:256: "there is no compulsion in religion").

In 619, both Khadija and his powerful uncle died, leaving the Meccan Muslims without protection. Muhammad moved to Medina a few years later with just a few hundred followers, and found a more receptive audience. After gaining more converts (and marrying a child named Aisha), Muhammad realized the power of a politically-driven religion. He decided to grow at a more rapid pace by raiding Meccan caravans, and sharing the spoils with his followers (e.g., Chapter 8 of the Quran is titled "Spoils of War; Booty," detailing how to divide the wealth). His vengeance against the Meccans that had persecuted him and his followers did not cease until he defeated and converted them, murdering his remaining, unconverted enemies. He also reversed his view of fellow monotheists, Jews and Christians, because of their disbelief and aloofness to his new religion. New, vicious verses in the Quran were "revealed" to justify the destruction, murder and enslavement of entire Jewish communities (the male Jews of Banu Qurayza were massacred while the females and children were banished or became slaves). In this Medina period, Muhammad's "revelations" take a turn to the violent.

Here is a summary of key Mecca verses and the Medina verses that abrogate them (see FaithFreedom.org for the original source here and be sure to check the next post on Islam's cult of Allah):

When Muhammad was at Mecca

After Muhammad went to Medina

Be careful of what you utter in the presence of the unbelievers; be patient with them.

73:10 And bear with patience what they utter, and part from them with a fair leave-taking. [3, Mecca ]

Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them


2:191 And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. [87, Medina ]

Do not use coercion with the infidels.

50:45 We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur'an him who feareth My threat. [34, Mecca ]

Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood.


9:123 Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged. [113, Medina ]

Be patient with the unbelievers; Allah will judge them.

10:109 And (O Muhammad) follow that which is inspired in thee, and forbear until Allah give judgment. And He is the Best of Judges. [51, Mecca ]

When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.

9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [113, Medina ]

Argue gently with the Jews, the Christians and the infidels.

16:125 Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright. [70, Mecca ]

Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax.

9:29 Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low. [113, Medina ]

One is free to practice whatever religion one belongs to.

109:6 Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion. [18, Mecca ]

Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.

3:85 And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter. [89, Medina ]

Muslims should learn from the Books of the Jews and the Christians.

10:94 And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers. [51, Mecca ]

The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.


9:30 And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they! [113, Medina ]

Do not force the infidels into Islam.

10:99: And if thy Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Wouldst thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers? [51, Mecca ]

Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam.


5:33 The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; [112, Medina ]

Show kindness and tolerance towards the infidels.

7:199 Keep to forgiveness (O Muhammad), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant. [39, Mecca ]

The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.

9:28 O ye who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship after this their year. If ye fear poverty (from the loss of their merchandise) Allah shall preserve you of His bounty if He will. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise. [113, Medina ]

Show forgiveness towards the unbelievers.

15:85 We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth, and lo! the Hour is surely coming. So forgive, (O Muhammad), with a gracious forgiveness. [54, Mecca ]

Be harsh with the unbelievers.

9:73 O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey's end. [113, Medina ]

Do not insult the infidels lest they insult Allah.

6:108 Revile not those unto whom they pray beside Allah lest they wrongfully revile Allah through ignorance. Thus unto every nation have We made their deed seem fair. Then unto their Lord is their return, and He will tell them what they used to do. [55, Mecca ]

Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.

22:19 These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads [103, Medina ]
22:20 Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; [103, Medina ]
22:21 And for them are hooked rods of iron. [103, Medina ]
22:22 Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning. [103, Medina ]

Do not dispute with the Jews and the Christians.

29:46 And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender. [85, Mecca ]

The Jews and the Christians are in perpetual hostility to the Muslims


2:137 And if they believe in the like of that which ye believe, then are they rightly guided. But if they turn away, then are they in schism, and Allah will suffice thee (for defence) against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower. [103, Medina ]

Deal kindly with those unbelievers who do not torment the Muslims.

60:8 Allah forbiddeth you not those who warred not against you on account of religion and drove you not out from your homes, that ye should show them kindness and deal justly with them. Lo! Allah loveth the just dealers. [91, Medina ]

Fight the unbelievers vigorously without any exception.

25:52 So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them herewith with a great endeavour. [42, Mecca ]

Be courteous when you speak with the infidels.

17:53 Tell My bondmen to speak that which is kindlier. Lo! the devil soweth discord among them. Lo! the devil is for man an open foe. [50, Mecca ]

Be stern with the infidels.

66:9 O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end. [107, Medina ]

Tolerate the unbelievers and be at peace with them.

43:89 Then bear with them (O Muhammad) and say: Peace. But they will come to know. [63, Mecca ]

Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.


47:4 Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain. [95, Medina ]

Do not force the unbelievers to accept Islam—just warn them.

50:45 We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur'an him who feareth My threat. [34, Mecca ]

The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them

8:65 O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred (steadfast) they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence. [88, Medina ]

Be friendly with the infidels to remove evil from their hearts.

41:34 The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. [62, Mecca ]

Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.

3:28 Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. Unto Allah is the journeying. [89, Medina ]

The unbeliever’s scriptures are similar to the Qur’an.

46:10 Bethink you: If it is from Allah and ye disbelieve therein, and a witness of the Children of Israel hath already testified to the like thereof and hath believed, and ye are too proud (what plight is yours)? Lo! Allah guideth not wrong-doing folk. [66, Mecca ]

Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.

8:12 When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger. [88, Medina ]

Muslims should forgive the infidels for their unbelief.


45:14 Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for the days of Allah; in order that He may requite folk what they used to earn. [65, Mecca ]

Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels.

8:60 Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged. [88, Medina ]
