Islam : It stands against evil, not with evil!

Late last night, this came from my daughter in Canada.
'Terrorism' doesn't have a race or religion. It's a WORD. People need to get back to basics, read their dictionaries, and stop choosing to be ignorant just because it's easier.


I must confess that these last few weeks it has taken all of my will to not write about Islam and Terrorism...yes those two words seems to roll off every one's tongue these days....Islam and Terrorism...Terrorism and Islam...one and the same thing?  

I am no bleeding heart religious fanatic in anything. I cannot remember the last time I prayed, what more go to a Mosque. In fact I will be the first one in line to tell you that religion is between the individual and who or whatever it is that he or she worships or believes in. And I would be the last person to ever want to engage anyone in any debate or discussion that has anything remotely related to religion...I would rather walk away.

But the linking of Islam and Terrorism  has more than gone overboard....it is undeserved, it is unfair and it certainly does nothing towards the understanding that religion, any religion, first and foremost preaches you to do good and also goodwill towards others....and Islam is no exception. 

This morning I decided that I wanted to write about this....not about terrorism...not about Islam....but to write that those who do evil and kill in the name of any religion are not the adherents of that religion, but are merely using that religion as a means to an end...and nothing can be so glaring as those Muslims leaders in Malaysia who have pillage and plunder many billions over the years and have the audacity to appoint themselves the champions of Islam.

As they say, the Lord works in mysterious ways. When I woke up this morning, KB, a class mate of mine, had forwarded this to me...an article reminding us why Terrorism and all that it equates in our fertile minds, is not just the privy of Islam.



MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS AND TERRORISTS ARE NOT MUSLIMS."

In the HISTORY of the world, who has KILLED maximum INNOCENT human beings

1) "Hitler"
Do you know who he was?
He was a Christian, but media will never call Christians terrorists.

2) "Joseph Stalin called as Uncle Joe".
He has killed 20 million human beings including 14.5 million were starved to death.
Was he a Muslim?

3) "Mao Tse Tsung (China)"
He has killed 14 to 20 million human beings.
Was he a Muslim?

4) "Benito Mussolini (Italy)"
He has killed 400 thousand human beings.
Was he a Muslim?

5) "Ashoka" In Kalinga Battle
He has killed 100 thousand human beings.
Was he a Muslim?

6) Embargo put by George Bush in Iraq,
1/2 million children
has been killed in Iraq alone!!! Imagine these people are never called terrorists by the media.

Why?

Today the majority of the non-muslims are afraid by hearing the words "JIHAD".

Jihad is an Arabic word which comes from root Arabic word "JAHADA" which means "TO STRIVE" or "TO STRUGGLE" against evil and for justice. It does not
mean killing innocents.

The difference is we stand against evil, not with evil".

You still think that ISLAM is the problem?

1. The First World War, 17 million dead
(caused by non-Muslim).

2. The Second World War, 50-55 million dead (caused by non-Muslim).

3. Nagasaki atomic bombs 200000 dead
(caused by non-Muslim).

4. The War in Vietnam, over 5 million dead (caused by non-Muslim).

5. The War in Bosnia/Kosovo, over 5,00,000 dead (caused by non-Muslim).

6. The War in Iraq (so far) 12,000,000 deaths
(caused by non-Muslim).

7. Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Burma etc (caused by non-Muslim).

8. In Cambodia 1975-1979, almost 3 million deaths (caused by non-Muslim).

"MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS
AND
TERRORISTS ARE NOT MUSLIMS."
