John Quincy Adams
, the sixth president of the United States and the only president to serve in Congress subsequent to his presidency, often spoke out against slavery and famously defended the slaves in the mutiny trial of the Amistad. His hatred of slavery led him to strong beliefs about Islam and its followers, in no small part because many of the slaves brought to America were purchased in markets run by — you guessed it — Muslims.

“The natural hatred of the Mussulmen towards the infidels is in accordance with the precepts of the Koran,” wrote President Adams. The statesman understood that hatred to be one of the key differences between Islam and Christianity. “The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart,” continued Adams. “It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies.”

But Islam, having been founded by a warlord, would ever remain violent, Adams argued.

“In the 7th century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab … spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth,” Adams said. “He declared undistinguishing and exterminating war as part of his religion.”

“The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust, to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature,” Adams concluded (H/T WND).

In other words, whereas Christ implored his followers to turn the other cheek, Muhammad instructed his to lop off their enemies’ cheeks — along with the rest of their heads.

The fact that they exist in extreme poverty, are uneducated, and have few economic prospects certainly impacts their fanaticism.

And you kinda forgot all about the Crusades, right??????

That time in history is not comparable to today.

That’s ridiculous. The very fact that violence against one group occurs is absolutely relevant today. In fact, today’s violence can often be traced back to the hatred bred from the past acts of violence perpetuated against some group.

  I’m really surprised, genuinely, that you made that statement.

And today’s violence can be traced to power hungry warlord zealotry. You seem to eat up the same lip servicing rhetoric equivalent to ‘the spoon made Rossane fat’.

In the spirit of answering the question like thing,
Islam is a religion of oppression and fear.

Well, the Greeks had to deal with them as well.  480BC or so.  Muslims play well only with each other, not with others.

Certainly the Shiites and Sunnis play well together.

How then do we reconcile Burma’s Buddhists and their slaughter of the Muslim Rohingya ? Even Aung San Suu Kyi has been remarkably quiet on it.

Islam is a religion of piece. A piece of you here and piece of you there. But seriously, people killing each other over fairy tales is a damn shame. People need to band together and help each other, not fight over whose imaginary friend is real.

Islam is a religion of young bored men who want to play soldiers.They are in our countries where their families were invited in and given free housing  free education and jobs.How do they thank Americans (North Americans)by blowing us up!The politicians also should keep the troops out of there let them  fight.It isnt about religion it is about greed and the oil.

I’ve read the Quran, and it’s a very angry and hateful book. The kind you’d expect an old man to write in a cave by himself (supposedly). Most Muslims I talk to don’t know the dark parts of their book and subsequent ‘hadiths’. It’s all about God killing this guy and hating that guy, how it’s OK to rape your slaves, how it’s OK to rape your wife (prepubescent or older), all Christians are liars, etc. Every other religion by comparison is quite nice, except for Hassidic Jews, but that’s probably why they’re at war. Learn about Hinduism everyone! It’s super crazy and has been used by geniuses to create new technology. It is so out of this world there is no reason why anyone would write it unless it happened! It describes ancient space ships in full mechanical detail, we’ve used it to find sunken continents, cmon! So much more interesting than this Abrahamic baloney!

Many people will argue that the majority of Muslims are not extremists, so therefore the religion cannot be discriminated against.  The problem with this is that roughly 25% of Muslims are extremists.  We have to take in the fact that the underlying minority will take control and will be overall more influential/important than the majority of the population.  Many people are dying as a result of extremism, and we cannot condone these actions by any religion, no matter how small the percentage.

But hold up, I thought it was 15% or maybe 35%. To come to think of it, could it be 45% or is it just around the 5%? Actually, I heard one report say it was roughly 22%. But I’m not sure, I feel that it could be near 10%; yes, that makes more sense. Doesn’t it? 

Does it really matter at the end of the day? People are dying, many at the hands of corrupt governments and organizations while the media is claiming this and that. We the people, the sad sad people, are simply toyed with. We’re led to believe certain ideas and even our opinions are formulated for us. 

We argue and fret, we call each other this and that–insulting ourselves into the night and yet we fail to offer an opinion that offers some solution grounded in facts that can be verified and vetted. 

We fail ourselves the moment we think only to appease the vox populi.
