According to a web site that tracts Islamic perpetrated violence, more than 11,000 people died from terror attacks in 2012. The complete list can be found at thereligionofpeace.com. The web site says: “We see no use in pretending that islam is just another religion, which always seems to be the assumption of those preferring not to look too closely.
What other religion’s most devoted members, videotape themselves cutting people’s throats while screaming praises to their god? What other faith has tens of thousands of terrorists across the globe united by an explicit commitment to advance the cause of their religion by pursuing horrific mass murder and mutilation? What other religion actually celebrated the 9/11 attacks, described the carnage as ‘one of the miracles of the Quran’ and proclaimed it to be ‘God’s work against oppressors.’
What other religion has verses in its holy book that remind men of their divine permission to beat their wives and rape their slaves? ... In fact, Islam is more than a religion. It is a rigid political and cultural system with a mandate to conquer and govern the lives of others via necessary force ‘until religion is only for Allah.’ Violence is sanctioned by the Quran since, as the Ayatollah Khomeini bluntly put it, ‘people cannot be made obedient except with the sword.’”
