Muslims need to speak out against abuse and misinterpretation of own scriptures. the abuse of warmaking and terror creating by using Koran 9:14 needs to be stopped at the root, in the homes of good Muslims and in the mouths of good teachers.
by one Non-Muslim Peacemaker Observer
I came across a book left in my workplace sometime ago. It purportedly promoted Muhammed's Humanity, however, in browsing part 3 of the work, the so-called author abused the Koran 9:14
in the same way that Osama bin Laden had in promoting and carrying out the massacres on 9-11. I have reviewed the internet and find many such abusive misinterpretations and obvious misreadings of Koran 9 that I think Muslims need to stand up and re appropriate their own scripture from terrorists.
Here is one young Muslims response (without using much scripture but by using other sources, too).
Despite the propaganda and hatespeech against islam and muslims,
you don't see muslim countries pre-emptively invading western lands on the pretext of "war on terror'
Why some people consider islam and muslims as terrorists?
who set the World War I ? muslims?
who set the World War II ? muslims?
Who threw the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima? muslims?
Who killed over 20 million of the native people of Australia? muslims?
Who killed more than 100 million of the native americans (red indians) in North America? muslims?
and killed more than 50 million others from South America? muslims?
who took more than 180 million people from africa (as slaves) and 77% of them died on the way, and they buried in the Atlantic Ocean? muslims?
and more and more and more"
NO NOT MUSLIMS!!!
People are brainwashed thinking Quran teaches violence and hate.
Myth: Islam teaches suicide bombing and terrorism
Fact: Islam prohibits killing others and suicide Quran 4:29
Myth: Kill all disbelievers
Fact: Kill disbelievers only if you are attacked by them, but if they stop, you must stop Quran 2:190 2:191 2:192
Fact: Islam teaches to live with the disbelievers in peace Quran 8:61 43:88 43:89
Fact: You cannot force a woman into marriage in Islam Quran 4:19
Fact: Islam teaches to be kind to your enemies, unless you are attacked by them, then fight them Quran 41:34
Fact: You cannot force the religion on anyone Quran 2:256
You see the "violent" verses are only the verses of self defence, last time I checked self-defence was the law
