Innocence of Muslims: How bad? How cheap? How wrong?

It’s caused a storm from Cairo to Khartoum – but what do we know about this blasphemous film?

LAST UPDATED AT 16:37 ON Fri 14 Sep 2012

AS PROTESTS spread to Yemen and Sudan, with the BBC reporting attacks on the British and German embassies in Khartoum, what do we know about the blasphemous anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims, at the centre of the storm? The Week seeks to answer the key questions:

Has anyone seen the whole film?
The 14-minute video circulating on the internet is in fact a preview of what is believed to be a feature-length film made by Sam Bacile. But does this really exist? The only evidence of the film ever being screened publicly comes from Steve Klein, a consultant, who says it was shown once at a cinema on Sunset Boulevard earlier this summer. "I got there about a half-hour before the movie started and stayed a half-hour after it started," Klein told Bloomberg Businessweek, "and I saw zero — nada, none, no people — go inside."

What is it about?
The film claims to tell the true story of the Prophet Mohammed, depicting him as “as a homosexual son of undetermined patrimony, who rises to advocate child slavery and extramarital sex, for himself, in the name of religion”, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Prophet is shown leading a group of followers as they destroy Christian homes. Although the characters are Egyptian, they speak with strong New York accents.

Who is Sam Bacile?
The video was originally posted on the internet by Sam Bacile, who claimed to be the film-maker. He told the Wall Street Journal that he was a 52-year old Israeli real-estate development living in California. After his story aroused suspicion, the Associated Press discovered that ‘Sam Bacile’ was in fact Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a Coptic Christian activist in southern California who is on probation after a conviction for financial crimes. Nakoula is known to have assumed at least 12 different pseudonyms in the past, including Matthew Nekola, Nicola Bacily, and even P.J. Tobacco. He is now under police protection in his California home.

Did Bacile/Nakoula direct the film?
Although Nakoula originally claimed to have directed The Innocence of Muslims, the casting call for the film listed the director as Alan Roberts.  Although some have suggested that this is also a pseudonym, a director of the same name is listed on IMDB.com with credits including the 1977 soft-porn film Young Lady Chatterley. But the film crew said the man had little experience. According to Eric Moer, production electrician, "He was a directorial hack, he didn't know basic things. It was very unprofessional".

What do the actors have to say?
The cast have expressed horror at the eventual cut, claiming they were duped into thinking they were acting in a film called Desert Warrior. Speaking to Al Arabiya on condition of anonymity, one actor said that the film was “defamatory” while another said they were shocked to have been part of “something so dirty and disgusting”. They have claimed that the film went through heavy edits in post-production, adding in offensive references to the Prophet Mohammed that did not appear in the original script. A quick flick through the 14-minute reel does indeed suggest that a good deal of dubbing has been added. When the name Mohammed is spoken, actors are either off-screen or appear to be saying something different.

Did the film really cost $5m?
Nakoula has claimed that the production had a budget of $5 million, raised from 100 Jewish donors. This has been contested. Jimmy Israel, a realtor linked to the film, told Buzfeed that the budget was in fact $100,000. However, an expert from a leading London post-production agency believes that these figures are “absurd”. He told Al Arabiya: “A resourceful student could have made this YouTube video for a few thousand dollars. Even paying through the nose I can’t imagine it costing more than $40,000.” One actor claimed to have been paid $75 for the day while an actress said that her day fee was $100. ·

No, the only reason you would say its nothing is because you don't know what grief and what hurt this puts into a Muslims heart, why should we put up with this ignorant yet stupid film?? You tell me, why? Why can't anyone leave Muslims alone? Why always Muslims? Don't people have better lives then to just sit down and hate??? And lastly, it was a rude, stupid and racist film! No one should ever mock any religion, because it is against humanity!

Ruby, that's quite an amusing comment you've made.

"Why always Muslims"? It's not - it seems that it's only Muslims that get so upset about ANY questioning of their religion though.

"No one should ever mock any religion, because it is against humanity!" What utter tosh. Just because you have an invisible friend do NOT expect the rest of the world never to mock that affliction.

The reason why we get upset is because we love our Prophet Muhammed Peace Be Upon Him. Enough Said..

Religions are mocked everyday. I am a Christian, and I would never be offended to the point of killing innocent people because of a fictional, mocking account of my religion.

Chuck, you should be chucked out! Because u r sad, dumb, and have no regard for someone's feelings!

If the truth about the virgin mary was revealed that she was a prostitute and a movie depicted her sorded life and birth of the bastard offspring of countless roman soldiers, would christians not be offended ?

And why is the truth about the jews ignored, Hitler was right, and he published a lot of material that is banned! What hipocracy !
The original jews were egyption slaves who concocted a story so as they could steal palestine.

There's many films portraying Jesus Christ in a less than favourable way and I don't remember any large scale riots or life's lost over it. And I'm talking about films that people actually paid to watch, from proper film makers, not ridiculously amateurish, almost comical, cheap, dubbed youtube videos. Looks like some Muslims just love to throw their toys out of the pram. The problem is, there's more and more people without time for your immaturity, lack of restrain and disregard for free speech. I opposed the Iraqi war and I'm pro-Palestinian but I'm also an atheist who believes in a separation of church and state, but in this case, like in the case of the cartoons, the ones who choose to over react are perceived by the majority of the western world (and me) as backwards, mindless thugs.

You guys don't get offended because you don't care about your religion. If someone called your gf a whore may be then you get offended. To us our religion and prophet is as dear to as as our parents are.

Yet again an innocuous and frankly, amateurish criticism of Islam results in deaths.

Barbarism is barbarism - you can dress it up all you like, but it shows an element of Islam that so many seem to want to ignore because it's just too difficult to accept, or have any meaningful discussion about.

Islamic extremists and their professionally offended western appeasers need to grow up - their hand-wringing, pseudo-indignance is pathetic beyond words.

"“as a homosexual son of undetermined patrimony, who rises to advocate child slavery and extramarital sex, for himself, in the name of religion” If you read the Hadiths and Koran you will quickly realize that this is true...

She never existed you fool...

did he even exist?the muhammed you think you know is mostly myth..

because the world is sick and tired of listening to the muslims and their looney cult.. jinn made of fire and air,splitting of the moon,night journeys with flying donkeys.. pseudo science in the koran.. the list of nonsense goes on and on.. is any other religion involved in terrorism every day of the week? no.. its an islamic thing..

No film or criticism or parody of ANY religion is worth the deaths and injury of innocents. If a religion is worthwhile and worthy it stands on its own regardless of the rocks thrown at it.

Its about time our Muslim bretheren moved out of the 13th century and grew up.

The answer to the world's problems is NOT to kill someone because they don't beleive the same things as you do anymore than you are justified in killing someone because they are a different colour, nationality, or any other spurious excuse.

There is NO justification for the killing of your FELLOW human beings, EVER!

My Prophet did not teach us (Muslims) to burn places or kill guests like that, He was hurt many times, mocked at, beaten, they threw rocks at him, but he treated everyone nicely, kindly. You guys mock him because you don't know him and you just listen and believe the lies that Anti-Islam people make about my religion and my beloved prophet. What Libyan have done is wrong, and i'm totally against it, it's not the way of the real islam to responde to such a thing, my prophet would never do a thing like that! Peace be upon you Prophet Mohammad.

As a christian I wouild have to answer no. What other people think is their business and does not affect my faith.
People rioting about a film they have not seen indicates that they are actually Atheists. Real belief in a higher power regardless of the name you give to it makes people RESPECT and cherish each other - not riot & kill each other. This applies to all religions. There is only one higher power.

The trailer is cheap and cartoonish,
but what cannot be denied is the essential truth that is found within it. There
are some errors: number of wives which was about 11, the 61 includes a number
of concubines and slaves with whom he had sexual relations. His burying his
head within the thighs of Khadija bint Khuwaylid when he saw Shaytan is
documented. His voyeurism and later sexual intercourse with
his son's (Ziad) wife is well documented. His molestation of Aisha by inserting
his penis between her thighs and masturbating when she was 6 is also
documented. He did have intercourse with her when she was 8 years 9 months old.
Hid he keep sex slaves and was he a slave trader? Yes this is also documented.
Was Mohamed born 6 years after the death of his father? According the ahadith
yes and a miracle to boot. All these are from narratives from the ahadith of
Bukhari, Muslim, Ishaq and Tabari who documented the live and works of Mohamed.

So what is the problem with the
movie? If it was made by an Islamist it would be considered educational.

Perhaps because the trailer was made
by a “white guy”? Islam is beset by an inferiority complex to Europeans and
treats their darker skinned co-religionists quite badly – as in being from a
lower caste or social order. Perhaps
they are put off by their “betters” who are obviously taking a comical stab at
their religion as being sort of uncivilized.

Or perhaps it is about deception. Deception
and lying is considered good when the aim is to propagate Islam. As one imam in
Egypt exhorted his congregation to convert by telling them that drinking
alcohol is ok but wait until they convert before letting them know that once
they convert that the punishment for drinking alcohol is whipping, cutting off
limbs or death.

Or even perhaps, Muslims when using
reason know that many actions of Mohamed was immoral and criminal and well
documented that they are unable to spin a narrative which would either diminish
or mitigate his guilt and then the only recourse left is to intimidate, maim,
murder or rape until people stop talking about the subject.

There is a trend of thought among scholars that Mohamed may actually have been Jesus Christ and took on a persona under Islam. Syrian coins which were found in Arabia has the word Mohamed and a person holding a cross and riding a horse from around 650 AD. So, if these scholars are correct there was no Mohamed. The word mohamed means praiseworthy. All the coin seemed to say is that Jesus Christ was praise worthy. According to the ahadith Mohamed's first wife's uncle was a Nestorian monk. Historically Arabia was a Nestorian stronghold. Nestorians are considered a heretical Christian sect. In fact, Catholics thought Muslims as heretics and even Dante had Mohamed die a heretic's death in the Inferno.

What your even saying is NOTHING got to do with Islam, and you heard wrong, Islam isn't always about that, that's a lie, I'm a Muslim and I know want Islam is about and I do know what your saying is false and probably something you heard from a anti-Islamic website or some stupid sources, ridiculous and all lies, go away! Come back when you know what your talking about!

Mohamed ibn Farook you have told completely lie in this comment........ there nothing true which you have mention in your comment ......... i give you challenge to show these words in the books (Bukhari, Muslim, Ishaq and Tabari). be polite with your life and stop blaming because you have to die one day. it is not good to play with peace of world. please please dear stop this job. it is not good for your personality. our personality should pure, full of kindness and truth. by

what abt the jihad then killing people in thename of god killing cows and offering to god

MUSLIMS SHOULD LEARN TO REspect other religions then others will not insult islam

i think he did exist but he was quite opposite to buddha and jesus

.......why whole world pointed out Muslims as terrorist.....but every one know the NATO FORCES who had rune the IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and also PAKISTAN with drone attacks. NATO FORCES using latest weapons and bombs to kills the poor innocent humanity who is working at their homes to grow their children, those people hardly have one or two time simple cereal (bread) and some people have nothing to eat sometimes. they tiredly sleep at night at their homes and caught by the NATO FORCES attacks and they lost their brothers or father or mother sisters . they find them died at sunrise, .......... after this attack on them what they do............. just they cry and wash the dead bodies with their tears. and and say to ALLAH about these incidents ......

Mohamed ibn Farook i have search all ........... you have tolled completely baseless lie.... hare i can't show you the truth but my ALLAH ALMIGHTY will necessarily show you the best truth in very short time.......you would see what is truth and what is lie. the certificated books i have reed in my life , i found MUHAMMAD ( MERCY FOR WORLD) most impressive personality full of love for humanity...,, i think you have not read the incidents of "sullah-e-hudiebia" and "fatah makkah" . where MUHAMMAD (MERCY FOR WORLD) gave the equal rights to CHRISTIANS , JEWS AND MUSLIMS to spend there lives together...........

Fairly sure 'The Life of Brian' suggested as much :)

Oh don't take everything so seriously. Can't you understand that this is the whole problem?

@Mohamed ibn Farook A harsh exposure, but there is no denying that *some* of the salient facts are indeed documented - and not by enemies of Islam!

But I object to the film as I object to much anti-Muslim propaganda since the Satanic Verses. The whole world knows the danger that Salman Rushdie faced (and is still facing). People like Terry Jones and Sam Bacile *know* what will result from their so-called 'freedom of expression'. They use insulting Islam as a way to fame... and *must* realise that others less well-protected than they are will die as a result. What is the fun in insulting beliefs that others hold dear?

That said, though - some of the depictions of Jesus Christ have hurt and annoyed me and many other Christians: yet the makers (not to mention innocents on other countries) remain unmolested. Violence merely offers free, world-wide publicity.

When the USA's goverment want to respect to other religions?


Dinesh Aj where are you talking dear........you people have rune the peace of world. you have attack at the innocent people of japan with nuclear bombs you have destroyed the happiness of iraqi people, NATO forces are fully trying to completely vanish the poor people of Afghanistan , what you have done with Palestine, thousands of Palestinians are killed daily by you. their babies are crying for the love of mother , father, and sister brothers. no house in Afghanistan and Palestine has complete family, at least one person is died by NATO FORCE'S bombing. you have also started drone attack at Pakistanis , 20 or 30 people killed by each drone attack, you are playing human blood game. when MUSLIMS try to protect themselves they are called terrorist and you are called anti terrorist because you are developed countries, full with money and you have power. one day you should realize the truth by yourself. Muslim never never start fight first, because this is nature of Muslim. when some one play with heart then every one become upset ok ... you have started first to paly with heart by showing this vedio.

have you any proof about MUSLIMS that they insult others religion, they respect HOLY PROPHETS JESUS and MOSES ( full of mercies) and also respect other religion as HINDUISM , BUDDHA and so. you know everybody get anger just when any one play with his feelings.

You idiot.. America nueclear bomded Japan because of what Japan did to pearl harbor.. It was revenge you ignorant fool! And Japan paid dearly

I find myself increasingly repulsed by Muslim practices and beliefs. Middle Eastern, African, Asian, Canadian, American, the country of origin makes no difference. Women and children treated as chattel, genital
mutilation, child brides, honour killings, culturally accepted pedophilia, the black drapes and head coverings, no rights, no votes, little to non-existent educational opportunities, no voice, no choices, no recourse. Persecution of homosexuals. Imprisonment, stoning and whipping for morality crimes. Lack of free speech. The foul treatment of non-Muslims in Islamic countries. The demented hatred of Jews. Sharia Law. Wahhabism. Madrasas. Blind obedience to Mullahs. Praying towards Mecca – a place on the map few will ever see. Individuality is shut down, originality and freedom of the mind discouraged. Islam pisses on human talents that fall outside the dark walls of its faith.
Hell, I even dislike their dislike of dogs. I don’t believe Muhammad was holy or a prophet. I think he was an evil incarnate carrying the words of Satan himself to a crew of desert simpletons. Islam is a barbaric, unmerciful, vile, unthinking distortion of worship. The fact that the majority of its adherents can’t even read the Koran smacks of mindless ignorance. I see no enlightenment
elevating individual singularity or acknowledging gifted greatness in this corner of archaic darkness. I have no use, or respect, for the people who follow this religion. I’m past tired of their killings, bombings, shootings, acid throwing, coup d’etat loving, rioting asses and it looks like the rest of the world could stand a break from these murdering bastards, too. According to a website that does nothing but track worldwide Islamic terrorism, to date there have been 12,328 Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11. Don’t tell me this isn’t an Islamic issue, the rest of us aren’t practicing murder on a worldwide scale
in the name of religion. I checked the internet website regarding quotes from the Quran and this is what I found: One website had a doctor (unknown if PhD doctor) that reportedly stated the following: About sixty-one percent of the contents of the Koran are found to speak ill of the unbelievers or call for the violent conquest; at best only 2.6 per cent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity. About seventy-five percent of Muhammad's biography consists of jihad waged on unbelievers. What is called RADICAL ISLAM is actually FUNDAMENTALIST ISLAM in practice. This alone should be a wake up call to anyone with common sense and anyone who respects freedom and equality.

This issue is most orientalists and Muslims have no idea whatsoever of the ahadith, and the isand. Most cannot even understand Arabic; they just memorize the Quran what to most a unintelligible gibberish in a foreign tongue as the memorization of the gobbledygook gets them merit points. However the ahadith and isnad are supremely important legal scholarship and which gives the context to the Quran itself. Most Western academics have a preconceived notion when studying Islam and attempt to use the same exegesis and hermeneutics that was applied to the bible.

Factually the video (I would not call it a movie by any means) is accurate in its generalities but inaccurate in its specifics. I would not say *some*. Statements such as this does not do the Truth justice, but does serve one to become a useful idiot (UI) to the elements which use the UI to further the soft agenda. The UI while having the best intentions at heart and a gullible get caught up in their new self-importance granted by new found "friend" in the religion of peace and soon are self appointed mavens of all things Islam.
An example inaccuracy in the video is the giving the wrong wife credit for something that is said by another wife. Also, I do understand this is aimed at a general audience but if the video maker was going to be accurate to the letter (according the the Isnad which is the biography of Mohamed) the director would have Mohamed play musical lap/thighs culminating with Khadija exposing her vagina to Jibril to figure out if he was a good or evil spirit - luckily for Mohamed it turned out to be good spirit and wanted nothing to do with Khadija's vagina. This is what I mean by accuracy.

But I do understand that this video was a feeble attempt to tell the story of Mohamed in a homemade skit (big yea to the folks at Photoshop and a thumbs down for the poor photoshopping in the video - looks like the actors are floating on air in some of the frames) which had an aim of mocking Mohamed.

Actually I had a laugh (both at subject matter and the ability to turn a at the video of actual live actors into character in a cartoon with their wooden dialogue) when I saw it last month.

However, I am will not stand by and allow spineless, emasculated political prats and uneducated journalists say that the movie was outrageous and reprehensible and for jackasses such as Obama calling the video to be blocked. In a truly free society we should be free to voice our opinions and express our dissent free of having the government attempt to strong arm citizens who wish to exercise these _real_ human rights. That diva_daisy is worth being taken seriously.

oh yes............. but when you attack at any country no one can revenge you because you are super power.......... and know the truth of 9/11. every one knows the super power and modern
technology of AMERICA no body can enter in AMERICA with out permission.
think..... how can anyone fly the plane with out special permission
...R.I.P.
the 2,976 innocent AMERICAN people who lost their lives on 9/11. And
R.I.P. the
48,644 Afghans, the 1,690,903 Iraqis, and the 30,000 Pakistanis who paid
the ultimate price for a crime they did not commit, and the millions of
Palestinians who experience this everyday .
The Engineers who built
the WTC Explained very clearly that , It was not because of the plane
that the building got collapsed but it
was
with the inside bombs which were placed on every floor and blowed at
the same time , tahts the reason the building got collapsed floor by
floor.( SEE THE MOMENTUM OR MOTION LAW IN PHYSICS, building must fell down on
other buildings not floor by floor) .

May God Bless all innocent people around the world.

If you realize that Muslims have indicated that they will shoot any dog that is found on the sidewalk near their mosque in Toronto? They have attacked a dog and its owner at Queen's Park in Toronto (lots of people and their dogs use the park on a daily basis) during their Eid celebration. The attacked a dog at the Quds day protest on parliament hill.

Canadian cannot be Canadians in Canada because of Islam is extremely imperialistic and the official multiculturalism pursued by politicians and the intelligentsia.

On the contrary: as a Christian
I care very much about my religion - more than I care about anything else. I get VERY offended when it is denigrated, but that doesn't lead me to kill the makers of the offensive material, let alone innocents who had nothing to do with it!

You say "I find myself increasingly repulsed by Muslim practices and beliefs." The reason behind it is simple - the media drip feeds you people Islamophobia every day and you are slowly brainwashed into it.

The fact is certain world powers who control the media need more wars in the Muslim world so they want to create the right atmosphere which will allow them to attack Muslim countries with their own populace's agreement.

Just shows you haven't read them, just another ignorant Westerner brainwashed by your corporate media because they want to go and bomb Muslim countries and take their natural resources. You people are so dumb, you're cultivated to be just alcohol drinking workhorses who keep the economies going and spend the rest of your time pursuing mindless entertainment.

Total lies.

The proof that Islam is true is that there are such liars as you in this world who have nothing better to do than to oppose Islam.

It backfires - people hear these things ask Muslims about it, pick up the Quran etc and then realise the truth and become Muslim.

And it will continue backfiring, one sad fact is one day you will be facing your Creator, Allah. And on that day - you will be in so much trouble you will wish you didn't exist.

We don't mind QUESTIONING chuck - we do mind vile insults and abuse.

Killing cows? We eat them you stupid prat - do you even question the propaganda you're fed?

Tell your Hindu brethren first - pot calling the kettle black. You have your own Hindutva extremists killing people in India.

Muslims would be too - because we also believe in her chastity and the virgin birth of Jesus.

My friend you very conveniently have forgotten history - the Crusades, the Inquisitions....

And I think you're just an Islamophobic Hindutva who posts cos he has no life except hating Islam.

Hate it as much as you like - it is still growing and will do so.

There's no such coin - you lie blatantly under your fake name - I feel sorry for whichever idiots believe you.

You are heading for Hellfire yourself and calling others to it too.

The world is tired? That's why its the fastest growing religion in the world?

No Satan is tired and is trying desperately to stop the rise and spread of Islam.

But it is in vain - the Truth of our Creator Allah, God of Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad - will outshine the darkness of disbelief - no matter how much the disbelievers hate it.

Already in the last few days the numbers of people asking questions about Prophet Muhammad is increasing. And then they are converting because they realise he was the most perfect character and moral person who ever existed.

1/5th of the whole world believes in him as the Prophet of God and that is growing day by day.

Mohammad Hussain

I was not aware that there was a Muslim world. I do understand, as frightening as that may be, that the Muslims want to take over the world and bring us back to the 17th Century rather than bring us into the 22nd Century. . I
don’t believe Muhammad was holy or a prophet. I think he was an evil incarnate
carrying the words of Satan himself to a crew of desert simpletons. Islam is a
barbaric, unmerciful, vile, unthinking distortion of worship. The fact that the

Quran 2:89-2:90

" God's curse be upon infidels! Evil is that for which
they have bartered away their souls. To deny God's own revelation, grudging
that He should reveal His bounty to which he chooses from among His servants!
They have incurred God's most inexorable wrath. An ignominious punishment
awaits the unbelievers ".

Quran 2:286

" Lord ...Give us victory over the unbelievers".

Quran 8:12

" I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels.
Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers".

Quran 9:73

" Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the
hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil
fate ".

Quran 9:123

" Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around
you. Deal firmly with them. Know that God is with the righteous".

Quran 22:19-20

" Garments of fire have been prepared for the
unbelievers. Scolding water shall be poured upon their heads, melting their
skins and that which is their bellies. They shall be lashed with rods of
iron... Whenever, in their anguish, they try to escape from Hell, back they
shall be dragged, and will be told: " Taste the torment of the
Conflagration! ".

Quran 48:29

" Muhammad is God's apostle. Those who follow him are
ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another ".

Quran 47:4

" When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield
strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives
firmly ".

Quran 8:59-60

" Let not the unbelievers think that they will get
away. They have not the power to do so. Muster against them all the men and
cavalry at your command, so that you may strike terror into the enemy of God
and your enemy".

Quran 5:51

" Believers take neither the Jews nor the Christians
for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their
friendship shall become one of their numbers. God does not guide the
wrong-doers".

Quran 2:223

" Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields
whence you please ".

Quran 4:34

" Men have authority over women because God has made
the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain
them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has
guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and
forsake them in beds apart, and beat them ".

Quran 4:11

" A male shall inherit twice as much as a female
"

So there you have it,
quotations from the book of the religion of peace. This
alone should be a wake up call to anyone with common sense and anyone who
respects freedom and equality

Mohammad Hussain

Yes, this is called life. Happy people drink, go to movies, go shopping, treat women with respect. It's not mindless entertainment, it's called living. We watch television, enjoy comedies, soap operas, and live life to the fullest. We extend our right hand to shake hands not using our left hand as Muslims do because they are told non-Muslims are unclean and do not deserve any better. We do not drape our women in black veils and expect them to follow five paces behind the men.
Women
and children are not treated as chattel. We do not believe in genital mutilation or child brides or honour
killings. We do not accept pedophilia or the black drapes and head coverings with no rights, no votes, little to non-existent educational opportunities, no
voice, no choices, no recourse. We do not persecute homosexuals or imprison folks for morality crimes or stone or whip them. In Canada there is no lack of free speech. I do not understand the foul
treatment of non-Muslims in Islamic countries or the demented hatred of Jews.
Sharia Law. Wahhabism. Madrasas. Blind obedience to Mullahs. So to call us ingorant Westerners who are brainwashed by the media then I'd rather be ignorant.

Canadian or American citizenship is not simply about the
right to carry a passport or to vote. It is also about responsibilities and
obligations. It defines who we are as Canadians including our mutual
responsibilities to one another and a shared commitment to values that are
rooted in our history. Yes, that's right OUR HISTORY not yours. At its best a citizenship ceremony captures the profound
nature of this shared commitment.

why we dont sit together, and discuss about view each other.
so we can see the problem without blaming someone

who are you?
moslem? crishtian?jews?buddhis? hindus? or just a human?
dont blame someone religion because of your tiny knowledge about that. learn the other religion will not make you chance your faith. if you learn islam from true muslim (not orientalis or orientalis book or false information)you will understand about the hadist and quran. if you learn bible you will know about christian. I'am moslem and i not terorist.
@fb: muhammad elcho

do you have known about tafsir of Quran? is there tafsir of bible? its because Quran is word from god, so human need to know with their knowledge. just learn tafsir before you want to share an ayat to some one!
it enough of blaming islam. tell me about what crusade do to the moslem in yerussalem?
tell me and i will tell you!
@fb: muhammad elcho

jews has given the holy land but their not want to enter the town. so Allah curse them from entering palestine(Israel)

ISLAM is disgusting and wrong. I can look over a lot of faults in people but not those who believe in such garbage.

Jim from Toronto, ON
you have learned just rubbish course to spread hatred between the world...... you have just listen the name of HOLY QUR'AN.... you would never learn its universal truthfulness. because your purpose is to spread hatred. you have mention false translation according to your mind. please be polite with your soul and try to learn and spread the truth and peace.
ok dear....and remember if you have read the MUSLIMS history.... MUSLIMS never start war first......they always starts after the action of enemies and fight very well according to THE HOLY QUR'AN and kill them bravely with the help of ALLAH ALMIGHTY, when MUSLIMS wins the war they forget and forgave their enemies and gives freedom to live indipendently..... ( YOU MUST READ THE incident OF "FATAH MAKKAH" when HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD ( MERCY FOR WHOLE CREATURE) conquered MAKKAH HE forgave his worst enemy ABU.SUFYAN, and announced all the people of MAKKAH that they are free to live with ABU.SUFYAN if they wants to accept ISLAM them most welcome. after this announcement ABU.SUFYAN was impressed by the HOLY character and embraced ISLAM. this is my HOLY PROPHET who forgave the killers of HIS beloved daughter and uncle, killers were thinking now we will be punished by Muslims but HOLY PROPHET forgave them and gave shelter. this is my BELOVED ( MUCH , MORE THAN MY LIFE ) HOLY PROPHET ( MERCY FOR WHOLE CREATURE)....ROCK THE MUSLIMS ,,,,ROCK THE ISLAM.............

Another perfect example of why we are in so
much trouble in the whole world. This very sensible and reasonable argument makes
perfect sense in Peoria, but is not only nonsensical, but probably
offensive in other parts of the world. Americans in general, including,
unfortunately,those who actually make and implement foreign policy have
an astonishing lack of understanding of other cultures. The significance
of insults to the Quran and to the prophet to Muslims is in no sense
comparable to the significance of such insults to the Bible or Jesus to
Christians, even fundamantalists. Freedom of speech does not allow one
to cry "fire" in a crowded theater. When we know very what the reaction
to this type of malicious insult will be- and only someone who has been
living in a cave would not know- and that it will absolute certainty
cause deaths, it is the equivalent of yelling " fire " in a crowded
theater and it is not protected speech. It is a prosecutable criminal
act. We killed an American Imam in Yemen for just his sort of thing. He
committed no act but used his speech to cause the deaths of others, why
does the same standard not apply here? whhhhhhhhhyyyyyyy............

I actually support Muslims protesting because we love our prophet dearly and do not wish anyone to disrespect him. Furthermore, reading the comments below just made me realise, some people view Islam in Media based... Go to a mosque an ask actual Imam about Islam. Calling Muslims ignorant when it is you who is ignorant by only listening to what you are told. Find out for yourself before you judge.

we love our HOLY PROPHET (MERCY FOR WHOLE CREATURE) much more than our LIFE. we have to sacrifice our lives for HOLY PROPHET (MERCY FOR WHOLE CREATURE). HE teaches us to be patient and HOLY QUR'AN also teaches us t be patient ,,,,, but we (MUSLIMS) just wants no body disrespect our PROPHET . just we wants this,,,,,,,, pleas stop disrespecting HOLY PERSONALITY. all of you don't know His love.

I take it that you have never heard that committed Christians love Jesus more than life? I hate it when people disrespect him - but it happens on a daily basis. That is no reason to go about killing people uninvolved with the original insult.

@
Mohammad Hussain: I *have* 'picked up the Quran and studied it (along with Judaism and Christianity). It failed to convert me, because I believe that as he said, Jesus is "the way, the truth and the life". That really is my unshakeable belief. But I would never kill people who don't agree! Jesus would expect me to pray for them. •

There has been no logical attempt at addressing and reading what people has actually said, simply reacting.
Most comments defending the Muslim faith have failed to grasp that the Muslim worlds reaction has been hugely exagerated, innocent people have died because of this, think logically, your faith is important, but you have killed, in what religion is this acceptable? None I wish to be associated with.
This is why people are angry, people of all class, temperament and faiths, Muslim included, this is 2012, how can this reaction, regardless of qoutation or extract from the Holy Book, be morally acceptable? or righteous?
The reaction is primative, uncultured and barbaric and reflects poorly on the proud, intelligent and ancient culture from which Islam originated from.
The argument concerning Iraq, Afganistan, other conflicts with the West, I concur are part politically motivated, only a fool would think otherwise, however shoud you crash planes into one of the Wests most important and iconic structures in the name of an invisible being, they may consider it a slight irritating.
Many people died that day, many have died from the war that followed,
This never had to happen, and neither did the following conflicts.
Consider it was an ancient mosque? im certain Muslim country would have acted with equal action.
However, this was a video. No planes, no bombs, a video.
Regardless of what it provoked, we are a modern, multicultural world, the purpetrators of such henious and unjustifiable crimes should join it one day.

Actually a former Muslim, a student of the Hanbali jurisprudence and Islamic lawyer. I am no longer Muslim as I could not reconcile benevolent, merciful god with Allah nor with his choice of a degenerate immoral cretin such as Mohamed as a prophet. Also, I could not rationalize the conflict between science, reason, experience and the natural world with Islam. I was forced in intellectual sophism attempting to rationalize Islam.

If you did bother to reading and attempting to understand what I had stated. Here is my statement "
Most Western academics have a preconceived notion when studying Islam and attempt to use the same exegesis and hermeneutics that was applied to the bible." A reasonable person would have understood that the underlying unstated view that I do not consider the Orientalists accurate in their interpretation of the Quran. I am unsure how you missed such a point. Pickthal (one of the most seriously flawed translations of the Quran - sometimes sentences do not have the same general Islamic meaning), or the more modern day Nesnuer, Esposito, or Armstrong are engaging in deception and practicing apologetic and providing excuses for the bad behavior of Mohamed. Take Armstrong, whom I think I know from her writings alone, seems to hold a grudge against her perception of Christianity and seems that by uplifting Islam she can avenge her slights she bore perhaps. I hold these sophists in contempt and only server to deceive the West into accepting Islam as a religion acceptable to the West which it is not in the least it does not accept co-existence but requires dominance.

Islam is unlike Christianity - I am agnostic, so let's get that of out of the way. Christians, even their western atheists see Islam through the lens of their civilization which is highly successful, open, scientific and very benevolent and WANT to see all other races, religions and people is the same manner: they are like us kind of idea. The reality is that Islam is a imperialistic, barbaric, savage and vengeful all due to its prophet being a lustful murderous thug (putting it very very mildly so as not to have a new jihad declared against the apostates committing riddah).

This so-called "Jim from Toronto" is simply copying and pasting every word from other web sites, hence the verbatim repetition. Google for any sentence in his posts to go to the original source. Pathetic.

Muslims never kill the humanity at any cost . but when someone disrespect PROPHET MUHAMMAD (MERCY FOR CREATURE) then this is not good and Muslims feel pain . why people play with feelings of MUSLIMS.any person related with any religion get upset when someone plays with his feelings.

@tariq: I agree that people need to find better ways in which to use their free time than insulting the beliefs that others hold dear. But *murder*? And not even against the people who perpetrated the insult? There seems (to me) no excuse for that.

Ask yourself why a mere 6 million people and stand against 1.2 billion Islamists and beat them every time again and again? Because it is 6 million with reason and intelligence and beat the 1.2 billion unintelligent brainwashed Islamists. Reason against irrationality. Intelligence against stupidity. Discipline against savagery. Civilization against the barbarity. What good is a weapon in the hand of a imbecile or technology in the hands of a savage? Is there any wonder why this tiny Jewish state has held its own against the Islamic horde?

Does anyone truly believe that if Israel gave up the occupied territories would these savages stop attacking Israel? Of course not. Mohamed committed genocide against the Jewish tribes on the Arabian peninsula: Qaynuqah, Nadir and Qurayzah. Islam calls the believers to emulate Mohamed. Is it really all that surprising that Mohamed's followers continue their master's terroristic activities? Indonesia, Moros in the Philippines, Somalia, Nigeria are hot spots for piracy conducted my members of the Religion of Peace. Mohamed was himself a brigand and highwayman robbing caravans.

The enablers are after all the socialists. The native inhabitants of a nation are generally conservative and such a nation would opt for a slow organic change. Socialism on the other hand requires the stifling of the native inhabitants. The opening of immigration to persons who do not share in the social mores or customs are more likely to reject conservatism. The socialists have in turn call the conservatives who do not like their policies, racists, Islamophobic and cowed the natives rendering them emasculated capons unable to defend what is theirs. But hey the Socialists give free money to everyone right and every greedy freeloader, moocher and looter will there in line waiting to trade their vote for a handout. Does one really think that the conservative party in Europe are really conservative and will stand up for their society? Probably not... and then there is the EU which imposes socialism mores on member states.

Hello Jim,

Well I just read your post and it forced me to write a reply to you. I hope you get to read it.
I know it's very hard and complicating to understand a religion especially when it comes to Islam, but believe me it ain't hard at all. You seem very extremely frustrated Jim. You know staying at a darker side would make you dislike even the goods. I'm not saying you're at a darker side, what i think is that if you believe in humanity then you should be polite in your head too. If You develops hatred for something or someone it will become more bitter to you whereas if you'd be soft and polite, that thing or someone would automatically look nicer to you.
Try to think over it =)

God Bless You!

What is most sad is that the truth is there.. What gets in the way is selfish pride. WE are afraid of the truth because it means true sacrifice, true worship to the one living God. IF muslims say they belive the prophets of God but do not follow after their God given wisdoms then truly they are justified in promoting the wearing of veils, the veil of darkness blocking the light of unadulterated truth. It's time all of humanity seek the truth. Don't waist time in defenses. Our day in God's court fast approaches.

I have never known such a peace-loving religionmurder more people in the name of 'God'... get real muslims - you are inherently evil.

Hi, i am Sylvia from Indonesia :)
I am Moslem, and i am proud about that
My husband is Christian
We respect our religions for last 8 years actually

i found this site caused i'm interesting about the movie but it was blocked

Here, i don't wanna fight about the religions or holy book : Al-Quran and Bible, coz sometimes i read both.

Human has right to believe what they believe ; Christian, Moslem, Hindu, Buddha, or others

But the questions is "why....... why always moslem and christian and jewish fight?"

If we back to the history, Moslems and Christians are brothers, they "admit" IBRAHIM/ABRAHAM. Jewish is believe in MUSA/MOSES, we believe in ALLAH..... its already written in our HOLY BOOKS

and about the movie, its just a human who want us fight, who wanna destroy us, they are THE EVIL, not us..... It just same as Terrorist

For me, terrorist is not about moslems, christians, jewish, hinduist, buddhist, but people who wanna destroy human.... they will looking our weaknesses and try to blowing up

Every religions is good, they teach goodness not badness.

Every said in Koran about Jihad, its Allah said in Jahilliyah ERA, but people who do extreme way to saw this movie is THEIR LOSS, they don't understand what the meaning of Koran.

Here I want to clarify that Muhammad married people who persecuted and had no power, widows, not for mere sexual desire

For me, i have 2 Jihad with gave birth to my children, coz being a "mother" is jihad too

i hate war, would u make peace with me :)

His voyeurism and later sexual intercourse with
his son's (Ziad) wife is well documented.

Hi, for your information...
Muhammad has a 2 sons, one from Khaddijah who names is Qasim, other from Mariyah al-Qibtiyah names Ibrahim, but they died when they still children. So, when u wrote his son's wife (which means daughter in law) is impossible.

(Ziad).... wrong name. Actually Zaid!!! its name of father in law from his wife names Sayyidah Raihanah binti Zaid. Sayyidah was a slave before Married married her, but Muhammad gave the freedom of her then their marriage (which means she has freedom to choose).

I think you should read all the Hadist first before u judge it :)

TRUE, most Moslem just memorize the Quran.....
WHY??
Cause Al-Quran made in Arabic language, we cant change it.
Cause Allah wants Moslem want to make one perception in holy book.
Cause if someone make the fake Al-Quran, most of Moslems will know it COZ THEY MEMORIES Quran from BEGINING UNTIL THE END :)

God's plan actually

@Mohammed bin Farook

from all the comments, u have the rude ones and i'm so interested :)

Now, i know the answer WHY u hate Islam, cause u out from Islam.

No matter how high you teach until being an islamic lawyer (actually i'm a director of law firm too & my husband is a lawyer), it didnt touch your heart i guess.

As agnostic..... u think logically, coz u dont have faith to feel it..!!

i give u something simple as a LAW person....
in legal principle said : "u cannot say it false until u can prove it"
and 1 question for u :
we know, we admit the first human are Adam
give me the answer WHO IS ADAM'S PARENTS?????
if you can answer it with a evidence, i probably think to be agnostic :)

AGREE.....
would you arrange that? :)

Very well said Sylvia, I salute you! You are absolutely right, it is the killers the haters the destroyers who are evil. I have many friends, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, and many I have no idea what their religion is. It does not matter! It is not their beliefs that defines them but the way they live their lives in peace and harmony. Many things are done in the name of religion which are nothing to do with religion at all but just evil people seeking power over others... By the way, I agree being a mother and giving birth is certainly Jihad!!

Goodness you are as bad as Christians.. All believeing that when you die you end up in some sort of Nirvana if you've been good and some sort of hell if you haven't. Well I'm sorry but when you die you are dead, that's it, its finished, all over, done with...
Which is what makes the murder of your fellow human beings in the name of some personal belief such a heinous crime, almost the worst possible crime.
You want to know what immortality is? It's your children, they are your immortality carrying a bit of you into the future, this is what makes the murder of children the WORST crime of all because you are destroying the future of that child and its immortality in the future of its children which are yet to be born.

So stop your prattling about religion, live your life well and fully and in harmony, consider all humans your equal regardless of sex and go to your eternal rest at peace...You have one shot at this, Use it WISELY!!

I am not American but the FREEDOM of religious belief is enshrined in the American constitution. How many Islamic countries have the same freedom in their constitutions????

Another sucker who has been conned into believing that killing others in the name of a religion is justified..... NO IT ISN'T... EVER!!!!!

pricklypilgrim

i am a muslim girl and i respect the fact that u respect ur religion....may God Bless u... i LOVE MUHAMMAD(peace be upon him) and Jesus(peace be upon him)

come to malaysia dont just stay in america!

Answer the allegations instead of going for who posted it first ?

what are you babbling about ?
Be specific what part he mentioned was not true or are you afraid of listening the truth !

@Tariq That's a BIG BUT there !

Muslims never kill the humanity at any cost ...BUT
Islam is a religion of peace ... BUT

the islamist will never give up before they have conquered the earth ,eradicated the free world and killed everyone that not muslim. therefor it will end in nuklear war were the islamist will be turned to ash. never trust a muslim

I am sure you didn't study it well then.

Stop using proofs and talking about documents without prior knowledge. You know, there have been thousands of movies showing every little thing about Islam and prophets, none of them caused a negative impact because they were made by Isamic leaders who've been spending all their life styding the religion of peace Isam, not by a bunch of perverts, porn stars who don't know anything were mean to ve disrespectul towards a religion by making a crappy movie full of lies and misleading thoughts.

The ignorance!!!

Like any religion or code of any country, it is obligatory in Islam to defend the transgressors.

One should maintain and guard one's land, honor, religion, soul and property.

"Allah only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion - [forbids] that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers." [Qur'an 60:9]

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said that I will be the opponent on the Day of Judgment against anyone (Muslim) who harms a non-Muslim subject.

So, discard all false claims against Islam and learn about true teachings of Islam from its pure, everlasting, miraculous resource Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

"Fight in the cause of Allah (God) those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. (The Noble Quran, 2:190)"

"But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things). (The Noble Quran, 8:61)"

"If thou dost stretch thy hand against me, to slay me, it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee: for I do fear God, the cherisher of the worlds. (The Noble Quran, 5:28)"

"Allah does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. Allah loves just dealers. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)"

"And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for God. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers. (The Noble Quran 2:193)"

"Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy handhold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. (The Noble Quran, 2:256)"

"Again and again will those who disbelieve, wish that they had bowed (to God's will) in Islam. Leave them alone, to enjoy (the good things of this life) and to please themselves: let (false) hope amuse them: soon will knowledge (undeceive them). (The Noble Quran, 15:2-3)"

"Say, 'The truth is from your Lord': Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it):......(The Noble Quran, 18:29)"

"If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then COMPEL mankind, against their will, to believe! (The Noble Quran, 10:99)"

"Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger: but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and ye for that placed on you. If ye obey him, ye shall be on right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to preach the clear (Message). (The Noble Quran, 24:54)"

"Say : O ye that reject Faith! I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Way, and to me mine. (The Noble Quran, 109:1-6)"

Allah Almighty loves those who restrain anger: "Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good. (The Noble Quran, 3:134)"

Noble Verse 42:40 "The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) Loveth not those who do wrong."

The so-called "Jihad" Noble Verses came for specific times and places. They don't apply for all times and everybody! I can't slay you, a non-Muslim, just because you're not a Muslim. The pagan Arabs were very hostile people and only knew the sword as an answer. Many wars were imposed upon the Muslims, and thus, it is only normal and natural to find Noble Verses that deal with these specific hostile situations. But the Ultimate and Overall Message of the Noble Quran is PEACE, as clearly proven in the Noble Verses above.

Next time, you will need to do a thorough search about any religion instead of defending a bunch of haters, perverts who do their best to spread lies for their own purposes.

They are pathetic, I mean there are so many proofs like I just posted above show Islam is a peacful religion and tell us to respect everyone, Muslims or Non-Muslims, however, they still try to ignore the truth.

I answered them all, feel free to read, despite the fact that there's no hope, you'll ever respect the religion of peace, I have a feeling that people like you will remain blind and hateful

Tell them.

Another ignorant "follower" who will ignore the truth no matter what people say.

We slay cows and EAT them you stupid prat.

You westerns KILL pigs and eat their nasty meat.

he so-called "Jihad" Noble Verses came for specific times and places. They don't apply for all times and everybody! I can't slay you, a non-Muslim, just because you're not a Muslim. The pagan Arabs were very hostile people and only knew the sword as an answer. Many wars were imposed upon the Muslims, and thus, it is only normal and natural to find Noble Verses that deal with these specific hostile situations. But the Ultimate and Overall Message of the Noble Quran is PEACE, as clearly proven in the Noble Verses above.
Next time, you will need to do a thorough search about any religion instead of defending a bunch of haters, perverts who do their best to spread lies for their own purposes.

And what I mean by "above" is the verses and ahadiths I posted before. And I'm ready to post them again;

Like any religion or code of any country, it is obligatory in Islam to defend the transgressors.
One should maintain and guard one's land, honor, religion, soul and property.
"Allah only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion - [forbids] that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers." [Qur'an 60:9]
The Prophet, peace be upon him, said that I will be the opponent on the Day of Judgment against anyone (Muslim) who harms a non-Muslim subject.
So, discard all false claims against Islam and learn about true teachings of Islam from its pure, everlasting, miraculous resource Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet, peace be upon him.
"Fight in the cause of Allah (God) those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. (The Noble Quran, 2:190)"
"But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things).

(The Noble Quran, 8:61)"
"If thou dost stretch thy hand against me, to slay me, it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee: for I do fear God, the cherisher of the worlds. (The Noble Quran, 5:28)"
"Allah does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. Allah loves just dealers. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)"
"And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for God. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers. (The Noble Quran 2:193)"
"Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy handhold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. (The Noble Quran, 2:256)"
"Again and again will those who disbelieve, wish that they had bowed (to God's will) in Islam. Leave them alone, to enjoy (the good things of this life) and to please themselves: let (false) hope amuse them: soon will knowledge (undeceive them). (The Noble Quran, 15:2-3)"
"Say, 'The truth is from your Lord': Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it):......(The Noble Quran, 18:29)"
"If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then COMPEL mankind, against their will, to believe! (The Noble Quran, 10:99)"
"Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger: but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and ye for that placed on you. If ye obey him, ye shall be on right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to preach the clear (Message). (The Noble Quran, 24:54)"
"Say : O ye that reject Faith! I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Way, and to me mine. (The Noble Quran, 109:1-6)"
Allah Almighty loves those who restrain anger: "Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good. (The Noble Quran, 3:134)"
Noble Verse 42:40 "The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) Loveth not those who do wrong."
The so-called "Jihad" Noble Verses came for specific times and places. They don't apply for all times and everybody! I can't slay you, a non-Muslim, just because you're not a Muslim. The pagan Arabs were very hostile people and only knew the sword as an answer.

Why? Because "But I would never
kill people who don't agree! Jesus would expect me to pray for them."?

You people can argue all you want about any form of religion. The facts are that you are all equally as blind as one and other.

You can quote all you like from your various books and texts - from contradictory passages - it matters nought.

You should be looking towards humanity, not some mythical storybooks from ages past. Grow up and embrace the reality that there isn't a big daddy in the sky.

He isn't going to forgive you your sins, you will not have 40 virgins at your disposal when you die, you will not go either to heaven, or hell - they are mere constructs of your beliefs.

He will not come down and save the earth and its people - we have to do that ourselves. When you religious nut jobs learn that, then the rest of us can all live in peace.

This comment: "anyone who has a problem with being a muslim [sic] then they can leave it... " from Afxi below is arrant nonsense.

You cannot just 'leave' Islam. It is called apostasy and the punishment is (wait for it) death! (damn, you guessed). I am an apostate from Islam and I belong to the Council for Ex-Muslims of Great Britain. I would be ill advised to broadcast my apostasy in the flesh in a Muslim country.

I have been a Christian too and with my knowledge of the Bible and Qur'an would say that all of them are based on stone-aged myths and have no bearing in reality. That is why Muslims get so offended, because they don't want people to examine their religion and is child-marrying prophet or its half-value women ethics.
