How to Refute the Liberal Media

Is the religion of Islam responsible for the terrorism done in its name? This chart provides both the common objections to that truth as well as the answers!

"You are a racist if you speak against Islam."
To be against Islam is not racism because Islam is not a race but a religion. There are more Asian Muslims than Arab Muslims in the world. In the US, African-Americans comprise over 50% of the Muslims. Thus Islam is not made up of "Arabs" per se. Many Arabs are Christians. Thus anyone who thinks that "Arabs" and "Muslims" are synonymous terms is a racist.

"To criticize Islam is hate speech."
To criticize the religion of Islam is not "hate speech" because Islam, like any other religion, criticizes other religions such as Christianity. True freedom of religion means the right to discuss what you believe about other religions as well as what you believe about your own religion.

"It does not matter what you believe as long as you are sincere."
The terrorists were sincere in their beliefs. Their sincere beliefs led them to murder thousands of people. Thus it does matter what you believe if it leads to the destruction of the property and lives of others.

"It does not matter what you believe as long as it makes you happy."
The terrorists were happy to kill and be killed in Jihad.

"Religion is not a matter of true vs. false, or good vs. evil. It is a matter of personal subjective choice."
This statement refutes itself as it can be dismissed as someone's personal choice.

"All religions are true."
Then the religion of Christianity is true when it says there is only one way to heaven, Jesus Christ.

"We must not judge other religions."
Then you cannot judge our religion when it says to judge other religions. You cannot judge us and then pretend that you do not believe in judging.

"Islam is a religion of peace."
This is a lie. Both the Qur'an and the Hadith teach Muslims to destroy the lives and properties of those who will not accept Islam. This is called Jihad. (For a complete list of references, see the Islamic Invasion. For a copy of this book, call 1-800-41-TRUTH or visit our online store.)

"The Jews and Christians fared better under Islam than in Christian lands."
This is refuted by Bat Ye'or in The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam, (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1985

"The Terrorists are not true Muslims."
No! They are acting upon what the founder of Islam taught in the Hadith and what is found in the Qur'an. This is why they called "Muslim Fundamentalists" as opposed to liberal Muslims who do not believe in the Qur'an or the Hadith. It is the liberals who are not true Muslims because they deny the teachings of the founder of the religion they claim to 

"But doesn't the Qur'an say there is no compulsion in religion?"
The Qur'an is divided into Meccan and Medinan Surahs. The Medinan Surahs abrogate the Meccan Surahs. For example, in Mecca, Muhammad said there is not compulsion in religion. But, after he moved to Medina, he said to fight against the Jews and the Christians.

"This is a war against terrorists and not against the religion of Islam."
This is absurd. National wars are fought for conquest: ex. Japan, Germany, etc. These terrorists have declared a religious Jihad against us. Their motivation is 100% religious. The ROOT is Islam while the FRUIT is terrorism
