Skip to comments.A Relevant and Brief History of Islam

Recently, Tom Scholl, who identified himself as a pastor of churches in Ohio and New York, as well as holding positions in several ecumenical organizations, wrote a 3-part article for my local newspaper, The Macon Telegraph, entitled -What the Koran says about Christianity.- I thought it would be an interesting series to read, but I was greatly disappointed and not a little irked.
It could have been an apologia about the goodness of Islam, using selective passages from The Koran and being charitable to some elements of Christianity. But his apologia went further than the usual arguments and Koranic exhortations attempting to show that Jihad and terrorism were not promoted by the teachings of the Koran and Islam.
The pastor, in fact, went on to truncate and condemn the history of the Christian Crusades â the Crusades of the Middle Ages being recently targeted by liberal secularists as the real boogie man of religious history â defending Islam as a peaceful religion. Mr Scholl thus wrote:
-Christians should be very familiar with misguided and/or violent followers of the faith. For hundreds of years, the Christian Crusades sent many thousands of warriors to kill huge numbers of Muslims and Jews.-
If you condemn murder you condemn Mohammad.

If you condemn pedophilia you condemn Mohammad.

Excellent refutation by the author.

This was posted almost nine years ago and may be of interest. Looks like the original poster is no longer with FR though.
Picking one article out of a 1924 edition of Time I got this but to see the whole article (and all the others) you have to subscribe.
When Turkey went to war against the Allies in 1914, the most dreaded weapon in her armory was the threat of the Jehad or Holy Warâpower to declare which was vested in the office of the Califate. Dutifully the Calif pushed the button. Nothing much happened. The Jehad did not prevent the British Moslems and the French North African troops from fighting against the Central Powers, nor did it hold back the Arabs from declaring their independence and fighting as Allies of the British in Palestine. The Jehad proved to be a...
Will read later.
May the bowels of ten thousand camels unload upon his head!
Read the history of the Muslim invasion of India. The Hindus were considered pagan and given no quarter. They killed every man woman child cow and Buddhist. The death toll was in the millions and no comparison to the Crusades which sought to restore Christianity where it had existed since the time of the Romans
No mention of Tamerlane?
The Quran is pretty full of jihad commands.
The author is full of it.
“O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness” (9:123)
Quran 8:39 says to fight until only Islam remains.
You going to defend this or not?
Undeaders, we have an Islam apologist here.
Take a crack at picking the article apart.
Then look at post 4 where the poster claims the author “debunked” that Islam is violent.
