Al Jizz: "We examine what role the Bible and the Quran played in inciting violence through the ages"

Cunning taqiyya merchants Riz Khan & Shaker Elsayed  put  the  clownish, deluded Philip Jenkins, advertised as a “leading religion scholar” on the stand, and he promptly makes a fool of himself. Just for good measure, here’s a total rebuttal:   Bible and Qur’an: equally violent?

War and peace in Quran and Bible

“Recently, Philip Jenkins, one of the world’s leading religion scholars, conducted a study comparing the texts of the Quran and the Bible, and found that “the Bible contains far more verses praising or urging bloodshed than does the Quran.””

From Al Jizz of course:

The clueless professor totally ignores that there are no Christians in the OT and that Christians never waged war  against tribes that were exterminated long before Christians came onto the scene.

  • Shaker Elsayed (of the Muslim Brotherhood)  is still repeating his line, “The call to reform Islam is an alien call,” at one of the largest mosques in America (JW)
  • Elsayed was born in Egypt and is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He should not be in this country. His oath of citizenship is a fraud, since he has by his own testimony no loyalty to this country and is calling for war against it. (Source)

Warning:  You need a vomit bag to watch this!

One of the widest perceptions in the Western world, especially after the attacks of September 11, is that Islam’s holy book, the Quran, promotes conflict, violence and bloodshed.

Muslims argue that many of the verses of the Quran – such as the one asking the Prophet Muhammad and his followers to “slay them [unbelievers] wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out” – are taken out of context.
Critics say that the texts promote extremism, and that Islam has left a trail of blood across world history. Muslim scholars say that the scriptures have been intentionally misused by Muslims and non-Muslims alike to advance political agendas.

Recently, Philip Jenkins, one of the world’s leading religion scholars, conducted a study comparing the texts of the Quran and the Bible, and found that “the Bible contains far more verses praising or urging bloodshed than does the Quran.”

Riz speaks with Philip Jenkins and Shaker Elsayed, the imam of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Centre in the US and former secretary general of the Muslim American Society.

  1. I am not myself a religious person and consider most religions violent. However:
    The commands of the new testament abrogate the commands of the old testament, in the same way that the Medinan suras abrogate the Mekkan suras.
    However, while the NT is peaceful and replaces the OT which is violent (producing a peaceful philosophy) the Mekkan suras are peaceful and were in turn replaced by the median suras which are violent (producing a violent political ideology).
    The claim therefore that both Christianity and Islam are ‘equally’ violent cannot be upheld by the holy books.

    1. gsw:

      You are comparing apples with oranges,

      “Most religions” are not violent. There is no religion other than Islam that prescribes violence to achieve world domination.

      The OT and the Torah are (for the most part) historical records. There are no commands to attack or kill in order to make either Christianity or Judaism dominant.

      Violence against Hittites, Jebusites, Amorites & Canaanites resulted in their extinction. They are dead. We cannot kill them again.

  2. Islam is not a religion but a satanic cult and the koran is the work of misguided imbeciles. GSW, for a non religious man, you are absolutely spot on with your comments.
    Jenkins is not a professor of anything, but is definitely a professing fool. Any man who claims to be an expert in religious matters is either a TOOL or a FOOL and jenkins sure proves the latter.

  3. To: International citizens
