Oh yes, Islam is a religion of love

We hear all the time that Islam is a religion of love, for example here:

The Religion of Love

ISLAM is essentially a religion of love – God’s love for man and man’s love for God and man’s love for man and the entire creation.

If Islam is a religion of love, then what is going wrong when we see stuff like this:

Dutch police use ‘decoy Jews’ to stop anti-Semitic attacks

Secret television recordings by the Jewish broadcasting company, Joodse Omroep, broadcast at the weekend, have shocked Amsterdam, a city which prides itself on liberalism and which is home to the Anne Frank museum.

The footage showed young men, often of Muslim immigrant origin, shouting and making Nazi salutes at a rabbi when he visited different areas of the Dutch capital.

Or this:

Zakir Naik’s incendiary words

Therefore, the most problematic of Naik’s statements are the ones that appear to condone violence: “If a Muslim becomes a non-Muslim and propagates his/her new religion then, it is as good as treason. There is a ‘death penalty’ in Islam for such a person.”

Or this:

76 dead in attacks on Pakistan mosques

The Ahmadi sect is one of the country’s most beleaguered minority groups. Numbering about 4 million, they consider themselves Muslims but believe their late-19th century founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, was a prophet of God. That is heresy for most Muslims, who believe Muhammad was the last prophet. Ahmadis suffer severe discrimination in Pakistan and are legally barred from calling themselves Muslims.

Killing and taunting people is not love. It is hatred – often murderous hatred.

    Hello, I enjoy the conversation and the thoughts that you are putting forth. I do happen to be a Christian and I love seeking the truth wherever I may find it. Some of the things that you say make sense and much of it does not. For example: It seems like you pull information from christianity.com or god.com or something like that when it comes to a lot of your material, expecially when it comes to prayer. I do agree with your take on prayer, if in fact you believe that prayer is the way you describe it to be. If you are wrong about biblical prayer, then that is a different story. I don’t think that prayer works that way you describe the Christian prayer, but I do believe that many people do pray in that way. You sound like you enjoy honest intellegent conversation and discussion… Please check out STR.ORG I think you will like what you see. Please let me know what you think? Have you ever seen Hitchens debate Craig? Take care and please keep seeking with an open mind. And make sure your comparisons are against the real deal-
