Understanding the Islamic
Bombing of the Boston Marathon
While many in the media,
including Fox News, CNN, the Washington Post
and others, including politicians like Barack Hussein Obama and Rep. Keith
Ellison (D-MN) continue to promote the lie that Islam is a “peaceful religion,”
David Wood of “Answering
Muslims” responds to their claims
from the Qur’an. He demonstrates the lie that is being perpetrated
on the American people that Islam is a religion of peace. Many of my own friends
think Islam is harmless, but the reality of the Qur'an's teaching
tells us something very different. If you have any doubts that Islam is not a
peaceful religion, this short video clip should convince any thinking person to
reconsider an evaluation of Islam.
Wood puts in context the verse often cited by politicians and
media pundits to affirm Islam is peaceful. They claim:
Qur’an 5:32 -- "For this
reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays
a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land,
it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is
as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our apostles came to
them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them
certainly act extravagantly in the land."
This is cited “to the children of Israel,” not to Muslims. In
fact, it is taken from the Mishnah Sanhedrin, which reads,
“Adam was created alone to teach you that if anyone destroys one life,
Scripture recokons it as if he had destroyed a whole world; conversely, if
anyone preserves on life, Scripture reckons it as if he had preserved a
However, Muslims like Rep. Keith Ellison do not want to
expose what is commanded of Muslims. He calls for context. So, Wood gives
him context and here is what is in the very next verse, which is not about
Israel, but about Muslims.
Qur’an 5:33 -- "The
punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and
strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should
be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut
off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as
a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall
have a grievous chastisement."
You see my friends Islam quotes out of context the verse and
applies something meant for Israel to themselves, but they never tell you
what they are commanded to do and why.
Thank you David Wood for making this point! Absolutely
