Don’t Use Your 14th Century Quotes

Muslim religious leaders have accused Pope Benedict XVI of quoting anti-Islamic remarks during a speech at a German university this week.
Questioning the concept of holy war, he quoted a 14th-Century Christian emperor who said Muhammad had brought the world only “evil and inhuman” things.
…The emperors words were, he said: “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
Benedict said “I quote” twice to stress the words were not his and added that violence was “incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul”.

to criticize us, old man…

Religious leader Ali Badda Kolu said the Pope’s comments represented what he called an “abhorrent, hostile and prejudiced point of view”.
Whilst Muslims might express their criticism of Islam and of Christianity, he argued, they would never* defame the Holy Bible or Jesus Christ.
He said he hoped the Pope’s speech did not reflect “hatred in his heart” against Islam.

…or we might be forced to blow up more of you infidel** donkey bottom wipers. Say you’re sorry now, or I pull the pin on the bomb attached to this martyr in the market. (Yes, yes ~ virgins sold separately.)
(* GOT that?! NEVER, ever, ever. N-E-V-E-R. Religion of pieces peace, you know.)
(**Just so we’re clear on this ‘infidel’ thing…)

Reactions to the grotesque jihadist decapitation of yet another “infidel Jew,” Mr. Berg, make clear that our intelligentsia are either dangerously uninformed, or simply unwilling to come to terms with this ugly reality: such murders are consistent with sacred jihad practices, as well as Islamic attitudes towards all non-Muslim infidels, in particular, Jews, which date back to the 7th century, and the Prophet Muhammad’s own example.
According to Muhammad’s sacralized biography by Ibn Ishaq, Muhammad himself sanctioned the massacre of the Qurayza, a vanquished Jewish tribe. He appointed an “arbiter” who soon rendered this concise verdict: the men were to be put to death, the women and children sold into slavery, the spoils to be divided among the Muslims. Muhammad ratified this judgment stating that it was a decree of God pronounced from above the Seven Heavens.

    Is this a religion of peace?? One untoward claim and these guys start killing, burning and what not? Is this their civilization? How many times have Christians retaliated when Jesus was made fun of OR Hindus rioted when their gods where desecrated?
