One of the Stupidest Things George Bush Ever Uttered…

…was that Islam is a religion of peace. He did so the week after 9/11 at a mosque in Washington, D.C. Yes, there are peaceful Muslims. I know some. Sufi Muslims are peaceful, as are Muslims who are not strict adherents to the Qu'ran.

But the Qur'an itself is not peaceful, so strict adherents to the Qur'an--those attempting to be good practicing Muslims, like the dead Boston Marathon bomber—will not have lasting peaceful intentions and cannot be classified as peaceful.

For some added academic oomph to this argument, we now have the work of Tina Magaard, who graduated from the Sorbonne in Paris with a PhD in Textual Analysis and Intercultural Communication after a three-year research project that compared the basic texts from 10 religions.

The study concluded that Islam is the most violent religion on Earth. She told the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that the Qur'an contains hundreds of calls to fight against unbelievers:

“The texts in Islam are clearly distinct from the other religious texts as they, to a much higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror. This has long been a taboo in Islam research, but it is a fact we have to acknowledge.”

Magaard is not the first expert to say this, just the latest.

About a year ago I sat in an Antwerp halal dive discussing what it means to be a true Muslim with one of Belgium’s most notorious Muslims, Abu Imran, who is now in prison.

He laid it out very simply: one can’t be half a Muslim or a new kind of democratic, Westernized, modern Muslim who only believes in part of the Qur'an. The Qu’ran is not interpreted in the same way the New and Old Testaments are understood.  True Muslims are to obey every word in the Qur'an as if it were the year 632 AD. And the Qur'an commands violence.


President Bush is a nice guy. But his foolish ideas about Islam likely played a role in the disastrous decision to allow the new Iraqi constitution to be based on the Qur'an.

It’s a decision that I personally thought bordered on the criminal. It mocked those Americans killed because of Qu’ran-inspired terrorism. And I believe it amounted to fraud against our fighting men and women who did not know they were giving their lives in the Iraq war for the establishment of an Islamic republic, following Saddam’s secular Baathist regime. Thanks to Bush’s folly, Iraq will continue to be plagued by Islamic-inspired, and not just tribal, terrorism.

Islam keeps people in religious and political bondage and inspires them to kill and rape and enslave. The only “peace” in Islam is the period after Islamic conquest. It’s not just my idea. It’s the word of yet another expert.

So your contention is that because of several individual passages, the Koran -- and Islam by association -- is the most violent religious text on Earth and a threat to all non-Muslims, correct?

There is no way the Bible and Christians can be as barbaric as those evil Muslims, right? Ezekiel 9:6, Isaiah 13:16, Deuteronomy 13:15, Deuteronomy 21:10-12, Deuteronomy 21:21, Leviticus 20:9, and Luke 19:27 -- those must be part of some biblical blooper reel!

I think the most stupid thing he ever said was about his dialog with God and how this helped him make the decision to go ahead with invading Iraq! Probably the worst thing a person in power has done since Hitler's decree against the Jews!!!

Christians are not out killing one another. The followers of Allah are except when they are out killing Westerners, i.e. Boston Bombings. Yes, President Bush made a very foolish statement and of course trying not to offend the many Muslims here in the USA. If he had told the truth he would have been made fun of and threatened too.
He couldn't win either way.

If men willing to listen and learn then will they. Christian Holy Bible talks about " the days of battle"-Zechariah 14:3. And wars A dare staged. And there is defense for the attacked. Terrorism is not war, it's not staged between the two ends. It creeps in and stab from the back. Muslims would reason and find out if they truly comprehend why they act terrorism. It should not be a political thing. Rather should be self actualization. Now Christianity is not the only religion yet they are the only attached people. Making it clear as The Lord of the Earth, Jesus, said, "if the earth loose it's salt, from whence shall it be salted". Thank you CBN.

Even if you do not take the Koran at it's word, just look at the history of islam - they have murdered more Christians, Jews and others than you can almost count. Islam is a religion of murder,incest,rape, pedophillia and it is all about power and control by the imam and other men. How can a muslum kill their own childern or other family members because they want to have more freedom from the tierny of islam. They have done it in this country and because of stupid statements like Bush made and obama pushes to the max you will one day be converted to islam or murdered if you don't. Look at England and France.

C'mon now President Bush had to know better. For by their acts and deeds they are made known.

One of the stupidest things CBN ever printed was that George Bush was merely being stupid when he said this.

How utterly stupid. Do you REALLY believe George Bush is so unsophisticated about the world that he would REALLY believe this? Or are you just utterly unaware that he was LYING to you like he lied about so many other things.

Here's a hint for you: Politicians LIE.

And for William, in the last post...

The Torah was written by Jews. Not Christians. So, why don't you take up your beef with them. And then ask yourself why Jews and Christian societies don't act the way Muslim ones do. Your point is pointless.
