We are seeing it happen all over the world today...Why do Muslims believe it is what their God is telling them to do. Why do they kill themselves in the process of Killing others... Human life is a precious thing...God gave us all the right to life... As a Christian God tells us not to Kill anyone, God tells us to Love our enemy, God tells us to forgive all that wrong us...

Correction please! Some people call themselves Muslims and kill people, just as some people call themselves Christians and do all manner of un-Christian things in the name of their religion. "As a Christian God tells us not to Kill anyone, ..." I don't believe that God is any more Christian than he is Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist. He created ALL of us equally. It is humans who have decided to 'interpret' His Word and call their version by different names.

@owlwings I really appreciate your comment. It is not Muslims who kill people, its just plain terrorists who do not have any religion. I am a Christian but even I don't could never agree completely with the Church. They led a series of bloody crusades from the 11th to the 12th century to recapture The Holy Land . No religion is bad, it is the people who bring a bad name to it.

@owlwings The Muslims that are killing are the ones that are following their Holy leaders commands, and their Book the Koran... The ones that are calling themselves Christians and not following the word of God as per the Holy Bible are not really Christians... Yes God has no religion....He is our Father in Heaven, The creator of everything...He sent us his word in the Holy Bible..and yes man has been trying to change his word since the beginning...That is why their is so much lawlessness, and evil in the world today.

@dlr297 I don't believe that you can have met and talked with any Muslim. The terrorists who profess to be Muslims are twisting the meanings of the words of the Koran and taking them out of context, exactly as certain so-called Christians abuse and distort the words of the Bible to their own ends.

@anniepa again, No 'They' Don't! (we're talking about two seperate groups of people, and--since you don't specify either one--I have to assume you mean both). I think 'the failure to specify the one group that Does use their religious-belief that way' is what makes 'weaker minds' (President Trump etc.) believe that "Muslim" means "Evil." No! 'People who choose to do evil things' are evil! Many of them are white, many of them are black, many of them are Asian, many of them are Middle Eastern, many of them are Native American; many of them are Jewish, many of them are Christian, many of them are Muslim, many of them are Buddhist, many of them are Wiccan; many of them are male, many of them are female, many of them are transgendered; But 'what they say they are' does not make them a part of that group, and does not mean that the group then-condones their actions! Not even if the sickos say they're doing it 'for the good of that group.'

@dlr297 It's all a matter of interpretation. I don't think there are many people who take everything in the Bible literally. Maybe you wouldn't consider them true Christians because they don't believe the stories written centuries ago by men but they're often far better people than some who DO take every word literally. The only words we need to believe are the ones about "doing unto others...".

@else34 Most people don't live and breathe their religion 24/7. Most Christians I know aren't really what you'd call "practicing" Christians. How many Catholics do you know that don't believe in birth control or in divorce for that matter when it's warranted? I'm sure there are plenty of Muslims who are as unschooled in their religion's teachings as most Christians are in theirs. We can all be good people and care about our fellow human beings without reading or believing every word, or a single word, in the Bible.

@else34...Yes killing is a sin....Have you read their koran, if not how do you know what they believe, or what they are taught about killing... They are taught to kill the non believers...They are also taught to do what they call Honor killings where they can kill their own children , or other family members if they stray from the religion. We even here of them strapping bombs to children and sending them into crowds of people to kill, not only them selves but as many as they possibly can..are you saying these children are terrorists....No it is what they are taught to do...They believe they are doing what their god wants them to......

The koran teaches they are required to model every aspect of their life after muhammad. If you study the life of muhammad, you'll see that he was a terrorist. Especially toward the end, when he gained, followers and power. Just as there weren't "moderate" Nazis, there aren't moderate moslems either. A "good" muslim isn't a good muslim unless he's willing to fly an airiplane full of innocent people into a building full of innocent people.

Who said so? They whom kill other do not understand the principal in Islam We are forbidden to kill others UNLESS they want to kill us first ( self defense) In fact, My religion threat us the moslem if we ever killed an innocent people, we could not enter heaven. So I wonder those people who claim themself as moslem then killing people I think there are some people who want to make Islam as a bad name and a terror Terrorist is haram in our beliefs

@ifa225...Thank you Thank you.... You said it all.... You are permitted to kill.... Who do you consider the innocent people... I would say the millions of Muslim that are killing in the name of Islam all over the world say they are killing the guilty... When someone draws cartoons about Mohammad They are guilty, and you have the right to kill them right... A Christian or Jew is Guilty because they do not follow islam..and you feel the right to kill them.. Mohammad killed people.... To take their land....To force them to believe like he did...He was a terrorist....and the ones you call terrorists are doing things just like your prophet did things...

I am not sure all muslims are like that. I have many muslim friends. My baker is a muslim. My tailor is another. They are nice folks. Caring too. I presume they become like that, when provoked. IS is different. If ISIS was muslim, all muslims would have joined it. As things stand, muslims do have differences in their interpretations.

@dlr297 ..I admit I do not know much about their history. Only what I read on net. But if we go back into past, even Jews have not been angelic, or even those who belong to our religion (Hinduism) Ashoka the great killed many. Dwelling on past can also bring to light crusaders. Is that what we want to keep alive? Or do we want to move forward to resolve the issues and join hands as humanity. I am for the being a cohesive group instead of emphasizing the differences, because radicals exist in every religion, the feeling only needs to be fueled.

It is a question that boggles the mind. Certainly it is an extreme, radical sector of the religion which I think has misinterpreted the teachings. Perhaps. But it is surprising to me how few Muslims ACTUALLY denounce the radicals.

This is so sad and really helps to explain why there's so much hate in this world, why so many Muslims hate Americans and so many Americans hate them. Do you think of Mohammed Ali as a killer? Or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? How about Congressman Keith Ellison? This stereotyping is so wrong and so dangerous. Religion in general has been at the root of wars and violence throughout history up till this day but nobody dares blame Christianity for the groups of self-described Christians who commit hate crimes such as the KKK. or those who have murdered doctors who perform abortions and the innocent people who just work at their clinics. We're all individuals and there many good and some bad people among Christians, Jews, Muslims, atheists, agnostics and every other faith or lack thereof.

@dlr297 I'm not a religious scholar and I won't pretend that I am. However, it seems that some people stereotype ALL Muslims based on what a very tiny percentage of them do. Remember, it's the largest religion in the world with 1 1/2-2 billion of them. We don't imply that all Christians or all from any other religion are murderers based on what a few do. The terrorist groups don't kill only Christians or other non-Muslims, ISIS kills more Muslims than any other group. There are millions of Muslim-Americans so I don't know what you mean by "that is what is happening in Europe and here in the USA". There are lots of killings taking place in this country and most of them are by people other than Muslims, I won't say they're Christians because it's usually not even reported what, if any, religion they follow. Evil doesn't discriminate, there's good and bad in every group.

Yes their is Evil among all groups...And we are seeing it among the Muslims right now. The Hate they are showing is not just against Christians but against anyone that does not think the way they do. Right from the beginning with their leader Mohammad their objective has been for world dominance. Just look through history how it started with him..He would go into a place as a friend and then when he had a half majority he would turn and start killing until everyone saw things his way...That is what is happening in Europe and here in the USA.....

@anniepa I am not a religious scholar either. But i do have very strong Beliefs. You have to look at the History so it does not repeat itself. The Leader of the Muslims was a Blood thirsty Murderer, and a child molester. He went into new places as a friend, and when the time is right they start pushing, and killing. Just watch and see what happens... Sunni Islam, and Shia Islam. The two kill each other because of different beliefs.. That is what all the killing is about..Pushing beliefs....by force...... Yes their is evil everywhere and it is taking over at a very fast pace....

Having taught childcare to Muslim women for many years, I do not think all Muslims think it right to kill. Unfortunately a minority has used what I see as cult inducing tactics to persuade others killing is right. During the Crusades the same thing happened. Interestingly, as both Muslims and Christians believe the Old Testament, both have broken the Commandment "Thou shalt not kill." That said, I could not follow Islam as my conviction is that Jesus is the Son of God and very God and I have a very real relationship with Him. Unfortunately, parts of the Koran can be used to justify killing infidels by fanatics who prey on those who are weak minded enough to be persuaded. The things that are happening now are more than crazy. They even end up killing their own followers and the way young children are indoctrinated and women abused is despicable. However, not every Muslim you meet thinks this right. Interestingly, I get to preach at an institution where you find many Muslim converts to Christianity.

During the Crusades who do you think was fighting...So what is the truth about the Crusades? Scholars are still working some of that out. But much can already be said with certainty. For starters, the Crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression — an attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands.. Most of it was in defense from the attacking Muslims wanting to kill them, and some of it was to regain land taken from them by the Muslims. Christians in the eleventh century were not paranoid fanatics. Muslims really were gunning for them. While Muslims can be peaceful, Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Mohammed, the means of Muslim expansion was always the sword. Muslim thought divides the world into two spheres, the Abode of Islam and the Abode of War. Christianity — and for that matter any other non-Muslim religion — has no abode. Christians and Jews can be tolerated within a Muslim state under Muslim rule. But, in traditional Islam, Christian and Jewish states must be destroyed and their lands conquered. When Mohammed was waging war against Mecca in the seventh century, Christianity was the dominant religion of power and wealth. As the faith of the Roman Empire, it spanned the entire Mediterranean, including the Middle East, where it was born. The Christian world, therefore, was a prime target for the earliest caliphs, and it would remain so for Muslim leaders for the next thousand years. What do you think the Barbary pirate wars were about. we were fighting Muslims once again, for what they were doing. Muslims have been fighting for world dominance since its beginning...Right from the start...and it will till its end.....As we can see what is happening in the world today. Muslims do not believe the old testament as it is written in the Holy Bible.....They believe the twisted version of it that is in the Koran. Yes the koran and the actions of its prophet, and god justifies the killings that have been taking place all through History.
