Why doesn’t YWN and Aish report the root behind Jihad terrorist attacks
In their holy book they are commanded to do violent jihad against infidels in order to establish sharia law (Islamic law) across the whole entire globeFebruary 11, 2016 6:00 pm at 6:00 pm #1137328
Here’s a cookie. Now explain all the people who claim to believe
in the same book, but do not commit terrorist attacks…February 11, 2016 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #1137329☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Maybe they’re the Islamic version of Karaim.February 11, 2016 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #1137330
Because in their holy book they are allowed to lie in order to advance their religion, they are allowed to pretend to be irreligious in public around the infidels but in reality be still religious in private amongst themselves, till they feel it is time to carry out a jihad terrorist attack against the infidelsFebruary 11, 2016 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #1137331homerMember

They interpret it differently.February 12, 2016 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm #1137333
“They interpret it differently.”
In their religion they only have one literal interpretation of their sharia law ( Islamic law) which commands them to do violent jihad against infidels in order to implement sharia law (Islamic law) across the whole entire worldFebruary 12, 2016 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #1137334👑RebYidd23Participant
In one version of it, which is growing in comparison to the rest because they kill the others.February 12, 2016 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #1137335mddMember
Comlink-X, in addition to the stated above, some of them may not be so religious and strictly follow what it says there.February 14, 2016 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #1137336Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant
Yes, people sit on the sidelines. There have been millions of Americans who supported war in Iraq, but didn’t personally serve in the military. In Islamic countries, there are millions who support the terrorists, but aren’t personally terrorists (people the liberals like to call “innocent”). If you compare the percentage of Germans who supported Hitler, Japanese who supported the emperor, and Muslims who support terrorism, you will see that we have a very very big problem.February 14, 2016 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1137337Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant
As for the OP, you can’t possibly expect YWN to write at the end of every article “Let’s remember, they’re doing this because it says … in the Quran.” That’s just silly.February 14, 2016 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #1137338secretagentyidMember
OP—There are multiple streams of Islam, plus the modern orthodox equivalent. Sufi Islam,
For example(the more kabbalistic) version, is beshita against violence and jihad. They interpret jihad to be a metaphoric and spiritual battle.
There are over 1 billion Muslims in the world, if they were all murderous terrorists, what situation would we be in?
As frumJews, since we’re expected to be at the very least conversant with the Torah, we often misunderstand other religions. Most Xtians have never read the New Testament. The vast, vast majority of Muslims have never read the Quran. Even from the frum ones, an enormous amount have not been through their basic religious texts.February 14, 2016 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1137339

Given the actions of Mohammed, it’s pretty easy to think they’re wrong.February 14, 2016 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #1137340

Actually, the percentage of terror-approving Muslims is far
lower than that of Hitler-supporting Germans (and probably
emperor-supporting Japanese). (Yes, I have watched By the Numbers: The Untold Story of Muslim Opinions and Demographics.)February 15, 2016 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1137341☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

That’s silly. They’re all wrong.February 15, 2016 12:19 am at 12:19 am #1137342Matan1Participant
It’s amazing how many Quran scholars we have in the coffee roomFebruary 15, 2016 5:12 am at 5:12 am #1137343yehudayonaParticipant
Matan1, that’s the beauty of anonymous chat rooms like the CR: anybody can be an expert on anything. Did you know that I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform?
