Islam does spawn violent Adherants. Did they learn this under the tutelage of an mudaris or cleric? Possibly so. Does it mean Islam should promote this ? Hopefully not

I can say Yes But or No Except or whatever you want
I remember a Christian Sunday school teacher saying "we hate homosexuals because they are sick people who should have no rights and should not even live, they should all be taken out an sshot" Was that an official Christain teachinng? maybe, maybe not, but it would be encouraging of violence against the "love thy neighbor command" written in their holy book.

Odd. I thought I already did. Have you considered reading a thread before you post on it?

the Quran??? yes it does. chapter 9 repentence (al-Tawbah) 9:5. "kill them, the polytheists" (jews and christians)
however to be fair this is talking about those that are bothering pilgrims on way to mecca or so is the defense. also to be fair the OT in KJV calls for extermination of pagans, often in the bible, inc women and children. lets be fair. but for the christian they are passive at least in teaching, turn the other cheek is the rule, but we kill enemies of the united states just the same.

It's either a Hi-jacked misintrepeted Religion or something about it at it's core is evil. Same goes for many of the other religions but this one is the worst as evidenced by the last 50 years
Keep in mind most Muslims are not from the Mideast. Most Muslim nations have not been accused of fostering, enabling or spreading terrorism. There are 49 Muslim nations how many of thse do you personally associate with terrorism?

It isn't but the middle east is the heart of Islam with Mecca obviously the center. Saudi money has been used to spread their brand of Islam to boot. Not exactly what most people in the world want.

I'll agree with that.

I also believe the GOOD Muslims need to speak out more against violence and acts of terrorism like 9/11. They need to take a harder stance and condone that stuff rather than apologize and tell us what they tell us in wake of it all.
