Let’s be honest and mature for once, Islam offers peace only if you “submit” to Allah’s commands (a slave/master relationship). If you don’t submit to the Wise one, then living under the rule of Islam can be Hell on Earth, literally. Case in point, the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Sure, it’s politically correct in the Obamaworld to be kind to Islam and Islamists of all pedigree, but if you analyze the Koran without being afraid that Allah will turn you into a piece of stone, then you will see that Islam is nothing more than a man-made belief system, a bedouin belief system at that, with the purpose of mind control, written by 3 Jews and one of us, Salman Farsi, the first and most wicked traitor to the Iranian culture.
When are we Iranians going to wake up from our 1,400 year dreams of paradise and reclaim our true Iranian identity? I submit that the problems in Iran today are a symptom of our collective identity crisis.
And yes, the other two Abrahamic religions also have violent passages — indeed, after all, all three religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) are semetic belief systems, the primitive (con)-man’s answer to our fears. But at least the other two religions don’t represent themselves deceptively.
Simply consider the following “peaceful” Islamic passages and decide for yourselves if you truly believe that Islam is sent from Heavan by our all-knowing, benevolent Creator.
“As for the man or woman who is guilty of theft, cut off their hands to punish them for their crimes. That is the punishment enjoined by God. God is mighty and wise.” [sura 5:37]
“Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and love a thing although it is bad for you. God knows, but you know not.” [sura 2:216]
“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. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them.” [sura 4:34]
“Believers, retaliation is decreed for you in bloodshed: a free man for a free man, a slave for a slave, and a female for a female.” [sura 2:178]
“Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them.” [sura 9:73]

“But the true servants of god shall be well provided for, feasting on fruit, and honoured in the gardens of delight. Reclining face to face upon soft couches, they shall be served with a goblet filled at a gushing fountain, white, and delicious to those who drink it. It will neither dull their senses nor befuddle them. They shall sit with bashful, dark-eyed virgins, as chaste as the sheltered eggs of ostriches.” [sura 37:37]
“God loves those who fight for His cause in ranks as firm as a mighty edifice.” [sura 61:1]
“Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate.” [sura 66:8]
“SLAY THEM wherever you find them. Drive them out of the places from which they drove you. Idolatry is more grievous than bloodshed.” [sura 2:191]

“Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” [sura 2:222]
“MUHAMMAD IS God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” [sura 48:29]
“When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take a ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens.” [sura 47:1]
“When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” [sura 9:4]
