Is Islam Inherently Violent?
A pious Muslim does not and cannot believe in freedom of choice. In the religion of Islam-Submission-everything is up to Allah, as clearly and repeatedly stipulated in the Quran. The raison d'être for the Muslim is to be unconditionally submissive to the will and dictates of Allah. Everything that a "good" Muslim does is contingent upon the will and decree of Allah, he is indoctrinated to believe. Humanity is facing a deeply troubling dilemma. Not only does Islam support violence, even its Prophet Muhammad commands:
"Kill whoever changes his religion." Sahih al-Bukhari 9:84:57
tantamount to violence. Violence is the lifeblood of Islam and it has been ever
since the time of Muhammad in Medina by Muhammad's own edict and conduct.
