Followers of the Islamic faith are up in arms over Pope Benedict's QUOTING A HISTORICAL FIGURE about the use of violence to promote Islam and punish kafirs.
And how exactly are Muslims protesting globally? I am glad you asked. Let me oblige you, my dear readers, by indulging in some quoting of my own. Now read this veeeeeeery carefully:
"You infidels and despots, we will continue our jihad and never stop until God avails us to chop your necks and raise the fluttering banner of monotheism when God's rule is established governing all people and nations..."
Now pick up your jaw.
So I went a'hunting for some facts. Is the Pope wrong? Are we really hearing from extremists in the Islam faith? Is this just over blown huh-bub?
Ahhhh... no. For in the Qu'ran, it states the following:
Fight those who do not believe in Allah And the Jews say Ezra is the son of God; and the Christians say Christ is the son of God; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; Allah's curse be on them; how they are turned away! Koran 9:29-30
Believers must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed , and are bound to do so by the Torah, Gospel, and Quran. But Allah will reward them for it. 9:111
Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don't kill them.) 2:191-2
And to think all those protesters worked so hard to prove the Pope right.
