Frequently Asked Questions (from Islam 101)


The following is from Islam 101:

There are a handful of questions that invariably arise when the point is made that Islam is violent. These questions for the most part are misleading or irrelevant and do not contest the actual evidence or arguments that violence is inherent to Islam. Nonetheless, they have proven rhetorically effective in deflecting serious scrutiny from Islam, and so I deal with some of them here.

a) What about the Crusades?

b) If Islam is violent, why are so many Muslims peaceful?

c) What about the violent passages in the Bible?

d) Could an Islamic "Reformation" pacify Islam?

e) What about the history of Western colonialism in the Islamic world?

f) How can a violent political ideology be the second-largest and fastest-growing religion on earth?

g) Is it fair to paint all Islamic schools of thought as violent?

h) What about the great achievements of Islamic civilization?

See a Glossary Of Islamic Terms for definitions.

Islam 101 was written by Gregory M. Davis, author of Religion of Peace?: Islam's War Against the World, and the producer/director of Islam: What the West Needs to Know.
