Islam and war

There are a lot of interesting, if inaccurate, things going around the internet about the role of war and fighting in Islam. Most claim that Islam, regardless of it’s statements to the contrary, is absolutely not a religion of peace. It is accurate to say that Radical Islam is a religion of death, but how about main-stream Islam?br /br /At a regional meeting, shura, in Afghanistan, Mullah Rahman Sadique, a religious leader for two provinces, discussed helping illiterate villagers to learn thier culture as Afghans. “Our religion bars students of the Muslim religion from harming others. Nonetheless, enemies of Afghanistan come into a village and tell villagers, by word of mouth, to take actions that defy Muslim principles. Due to so many being uneducated, these disadvantaged citizens may be confused and follow the wrong path, and worse yet, be led astray by enemies of Afghanistan, who have agendas,” Sadique said.br /br /It’s my opinion that we need to free the world of Radical Islamists–that’s the war we’re fighting right now. Then all people, including main-stream Muslims, can enjoy peace.
