The religion of peace strikes again! The first reporter to successfully embed with ISIS and not get killed gives his report.

“I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam,” but “I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” explained Todenhofer. He added, “Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of religious cleansing, planning to kill the non-believers… They also will kill Muslim democrats because they believe that non-ISIL-Muslims put the laws of human beings above the commandments of God.”

But remember! The Islamic state has nothing to do with Islam.

    This is what the religion of peace teaches in it’s holy book:

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

    FYI: “Polytheists” are Christians who believe in the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

    A bunch of Efn religious nuts convincing children to kill other children (what is the average age of the “men” in that picture in the article preparing to murder other “men”, 20 ?)

    The religion of peace in deed. Think they can be convinced to leave their religion in the privacy of their private homes?

    Here is some more delightful imagery brought to you by the religion of peace. What more commentary is needed?

    The way things like that are enforced is left up to the ruler of the land.

    In some cases the non Muslims are executed. In others they are allowed to live in total peace with no restrictions. But in most cases around the middle east they are required to pay an extra tax and live with some restrictions.

    One of Mohamed’s first documented acts was to come to peace with the Jews in Medina.

    People of the Book get special exemptions.

    The Quran almost always leaves an out for the ruler of the land. If for some reason he can not kill or convert all in his area there is no reason to make it so he too is breaking the Quran by not obeying one small passage.

    Not all Christians believe in the trinity.

    Eastern Orthodox do not.
    I was originally Byzantine Catholic ( A branch of Eastern Orthodox) but we eventually came into communion with the Holy Roman Church and now recognize the holy trinity.

    We still pray for those lost when Constantinople was sacked by the Muslims in 1453. Thousands of Christians died and tens of thousands were sold into slavery.
    We also pray for our solders who defend this nation and thus our faith.
    We always have ,every week.

    As I have said before, ISIS are not a group of “radicalized Jihadis” the are Islamic fundamentalists. They behave as Mohammed himself behaved

    And the Trinity is not about three Gods but about three aspects of the one God.

  • Jake V

    Eastern Orthodox most certainly recognize the Trinity. Check out the teachings on the Trinity given in the Seven Ecumenical Councils – all of which took place in the Christian East. The only Christians that reject the Trinity are branches of Protestantism (like Unitarians).

    As to Byzantine Catholics, they use the worship services of Byzantine Orthodoxy. The only exception is Ruthenian Byzantine Catholics in America, which uses sort of a Latinized Byzantine Low Mass. It was promulgated because they wanted to be more Roman Catholic and less Orthodox.

    But this has nothing to do with the religion of peace and the violence it unleashes on the innocent – Muslims, Christians, Jews, and others. There is no mercy in Islam. The Quran is quite clear on this.

    Raqaa has a smaller population than Fallujah. Someone should Fallujize Raqaa. If the IS were to lose its capitol it would show that it is a house of cards.

  • pzatchok

    Your correct I was thinking about the difference in their interpretation of it. And if the fact that is one of the main reasons they are still apart.

    And radical Muslims don’t care what you believe in or who you are. As long as you are not them you are a target.
