Does serving Allah means terrorizing and killing people?

I don't know why people kill in the name of Allah, the Islam God. I think they should abolish Islam to eliminate brutal terrorism, do you agree?

Hold your horses there my friend. I don't mean to accuse you of anything but it seem that when it come to terrorist it always come back to Islam. Why not the european, american , they also have these terrorist. We serve Allah and by all mean there's nothing said to instruct us killing another human being. It just not fair to point the finger to a particular religion. Maybe you got the wrong info on that my friend and believe me we also hate the terrorist that kills people.

No one really serving Allah will ever terrorize or kill people. Just because someone says they are doing it in the name of God does not mean they are doing it for that purpose.. Usually action speaks louder than words.. and as for the last question , you cannot dump a pond just because there is a dirty fish in the water.

I have to disagree there buddy. Let me ask you a question: Should Catholicism be abolished just because there's hate mongers such as Fred Phelps?. I think you're just ill informed, Islam is not about terrorism. Most Muslims are not terrorists. Remember, there's a difference between Islamic and Islamic fundamentalism (Even though that's a word Islamic people complain about for being a Christian term, but it serves the purpose in this example. I'm not trying to offend anyone here) There's also so much wrong with your statement. Do you really think you can forbid people to have faith in their God?. How do you plan to do that?. I mean, there was a certain person who felt the way you do about a certain religion and he discovered the only way to do it was to kill them. He managed to get a few too! By few I mean around six million. Is that the way to stop terrorism now? I'm sorry but I don't think so. People should be free to believe in whatever they want and worship whoever they want, as long as they respect other people's beliefs. Pray Jesus, Pray Allah, pray Joe Pesci for all I care. It's none of my business. Stop putting everyone in the same box dude, it's wrong and ignorant. And this comes from someone who isn't even religious. One more thing, couldn't you have posted this in the other thread you made about terrorism? It's confusing to have so many discussions about the same subject, especially when they come from the same person. Oh!, and I'm sorry if I sounded a bit harsh, but you brought up a harsh subject.

Allah is not "Islam God", its the translation for God. I don't know of any religion that teaches to kill. First I don't know how you would abolish a religion and if we could I don't know that it would stop terrorism. I think terrorism is specific to certain people.

I personally don't know much about any of that.. but if you have enough power and influence over people then it's not that difficult to take one thing and twist it into another thing. It wouldn't surprise me if that's what whoever's doing all that is doing.. People usually don't question other people that have enough power to kill them or their families.. Who knows.
