lol..., remember the Regensburg, muslims call for the death of the Holy Father for the reason they cannot even understand... a religion of peace, but i'm not convinced, "Who said that Islam is a violent religion?, tell me i'l gonna kill them...we are a religion of peace!!! kill the Christians, burn the Churches, behead the priests, Ialam is peace"...

A Faith is not Violent. It is through our misinterpretation of our Doctrines and Dogmas reflects the negativeness of a faith...

And... a faith does not condemn nor it forces others to enter it... For those who wish to convert... it has to be a journey of knowing the new faith... I do not BELIEVE in 'I BELIEVE, therefore I can CONVERT or profess it this very minute'

Aaron, I urge you to read the Quran for yourself. Study the Hadith if you can. I believe they will prove very enlightening.

The fact of the matter is that there's a very violent strain of thought in the Quran. The Quranic worldview is divided between the Dar al-Islam and the Dar al-Harb, the sphere of War. Only when a non-Muslim submits to the Sharia laws governing them, pays the jizya and knows their place as being under the Muslims can they be in peace. Their places of worship cannot be repaired, etc. This is all within current mainstream Islamic jurisprudence.

The history of Islam and the behaviour of Muslim majority provinces testify to this fact that they cannot be ruled, but must rule. May I mention is passing Mindanao and the Southern Philippines, Kosovo, Chechnya (all versus the Christians), Kashmir (versus the Hindus), Southern Thailand (versus the Buddhists), the West Bank and Gaza (versus the Jews). I put it to you that it's not a coincidence that all these separatists are all Muslims, but a systematic effort of the local Muslim people to free themselves from non-Muslim sovereignty.

And to that end, violence is certainly acceptable.
