Tolerant....maybe you don’t understand what tolerant means

I came across this on the internet, where a muslim was debating as to why islam is not as bad as people think. Its interesting as this is the politically correct answer a lot of muslims give when asked about terrorism....

"Please don’t be so naive as to assume that all Muslims are evil. A lot of what you’re seeing is genuine extremism that is frowned upon by a lot of Arabs too. No where in our religion does it say it is OK to kill.
Also keep in mind that a Muslim is someone who follows the four pillars
a) believes in god
b) prays
c) fasts on ramadan
d) goes on a pilgrimage"

So lets break this down.
No where in our religion does it say it is OK to kill.
No, this is definitely not true. It clearly states in the koran that you should kill believe if they do not believe in your god. the only time you can stop is if they take on your beliefs.
2:191 And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. 2:192 But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

 A lot of what you’re seeing is genuine extremism that is frowned upon by a lot of Arabs too.
But as shown above this sentence now clearly is also a load of horse manure.


Also keep in mind that a Muslim is someone who follows the four pillars
a) believes in god
b) prays
c) fasts on ramadan
d) goes on a pilgrimage"
So, you don’t even know your religion very well. 4 pillars? depends if you are Sunni or Shia and either way its not 4.

But then again what do you expect, when this comment was left behind by someone who believes islam is a religion of peace?
