TheReligionofPeace.com is a
pluralistic, non-partisan site concerned with Islam's true political and
religious teachings according to its own texts. We present the threat that
Islam poses to human dignity and freedom, and we document the violence and
dysfunction that ensues
as a direct consequence of this religion's supremacist teachings.
We are not associated with any organization. We do not promote any
religion, but we are not hostile to religion. We generally support the rights of
atheists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, homosexuals, women, Muslims and anyone else
on the planet to live as they wish without violating the rights of
We strongly condemn any

We also denounce any act of
vandalism against mosques or other property, including juvenile attempts to
offend Muslims by desecrating copies of the Quran. (The best way of discrediting the
Quran is to tell non-Muslims what it
At the same time, we see no use in pretending that
Islam is just another religion - which always seems to be the assumption of
those preferring not to look too closely.
In fact, Islam is dreadfully unique - and it should be

How shocking any of this would be if it didn't involve
the Islamic religion. As it is, much of it barely registers in the media.
The very fact that the bar of expectation is set so low for "the Religion of
Peace" underscores just how different it really is.
No other religion has to attach "phobia" on the end of
its name in order to bully others into silence - lest they be accused of
harboring irrational fear for suggesting that Islam is different. Yet, all
other religions combined do not account for even a fraction of terrorism in the
name of their god that Islam produces each day. No religion is so
demanding of respect while doing so little to earn it.
In fact, Islam is more than a religion. It is a
rigid political and cultural system with a mandate to conquer and govern the
lives of others via necessary force "until
religion is only for Allah." Violence is sanctioned by the Quran,
a book which not once tells Muslims to love those outside the faith.
The enemy of this orthodoxy is not just
intellectual dissent and free speech, but human freedom. The divine
charter of Islam is to impose itself and thus prevent the individual from
discovering a different meaning for their own lives.
Islam breeds arrogance and self-absorption, which
accounts for the collective petulance and perpetual grievance that characterizes
Muslim populations in general - along with the astonishing unwillingness to extend
equal moral consideration to those outside the religion.
This disregard for others is rooted in the supremacist
ideology of the Quran and Islamic law, which unashamedly draws the
sharpest distinction between those within the group of believers and those
without - towards whom arbitrary denigration is cast and
punishment is prescribed.
As a consequence, not a day goes by without someone,

devout Muslims in the name of this religion - over ten thousand persons each
year. More innocent lives were snuffed out in just two hours by devout Muslims on
9/11 than by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire 145-year history (source).
Where Islam dominates, there is systematic
discrimination and oppression of those of other faiths.
Where Muslims are a minority, there is peevish self-interest, disloyalty and
eventual rebellion and terror when demands for special privilege and
entitlements are not met - all part of the eternal jihad to bring about the rule
of Islam as Muhammad instructed.
isn't the victims who need lessons in tolerance and
understanding - it is the Islamic world.
Can one name a single country in the West in which the
significant influx of Muslims has not been accompanied by severe social strain?
Can one name any country affected in the same way by Hindu immigration?
Those willing to open their minds will find that,
regardless of the excuse-du-jour, the remarkably wide-spread level of narcissism,
repression and violence is deeply ingrained in the teachings, double standards
and early history of the Islamic religion. While there is not a single
verse in the Quran that commands love for those outside Islam, there are nearly
500 that either promote violence or allude to Allah's hatred for unbelievers - in
a book that is
largely about how to think of and deal
with those outside the "true" faith.
Why rely on rosy platitudes and carefully-edited
fragments of Quran verses from apologists when Islam speaks so well for itself?
Beyond the whitewashing are obvious reasons why so many devotees do horrible
things in the name of Allah, while most of the rest never seem to get terribly
upset by it - busy as they are throwing tantrums and demanding for themselves what they
explicitly deny others.
How much favor are we really doing Muslims by not
challenging them to the sort of self-critique necessary for moral progress?
How much favor are we doing ourselves by desperately trying to accommodate that
which has no intention of accommodating us, or by continuing to sacrifice blood
and budgets for those who hate us in return? Is it really in our best
interests to assist the expansion within our own borders of a religion that is
consistently incapable of building countries in which even Muslims themselves
want to live?
Tolerance is a good thing, but not when we allow it to
cynically against us by those who have no use for it once they obtain power.
We need to back away from the altar of political correctness and throw out our
preconceptions. We need to embrace critical thinking.
The truth is that Islam is not a religion of peace and
it is not like other religion. Sometimes the truth isn't comfortable.
Sometimes the truth offends. But it is far better that we offend others
than lose our own freedom.
