Terrorism In Islam
The word terrorism came into wide usage only a few decades ago. One of the unfortunate results of this terminology is that it limits the definition of terrorism to that perpetrated by small group or individuals. Terrorism, in fact, spans the entire world, and manifests itself in various forms. Its perpetrators do not fit any stereotypes. Those who hold human lives cheap, and have the power to expend human lives, Appear at different levels in our societies. The frustrated employee who kills his colleagues in cold-blood or the oppressed citizen of an occupied land who vents his anger by blowing up a school bus are terrorists who provoke our anger and revulsion. Ironically however, the politicians who use age-old ethnic animosities between peoples to consolidate his position, the head of the state who orders "carpet bombing" of entire cities, the exalted councils that choke millions of civilians to death by wielding the insidious weapon of sanctions, are rarely punished for their crimes humanity.
In this narrow definition of terrorism that implicates only individuals and groups, that has caused Muslims to be associated with acts of destruction and terror in the popular media. Often, the religion of Islam is held responsible for the acts of a fringe minority among Muslims. Now let\'s talk common sense, could it be possible that Islam, whose light ended the Dark Ages in Europe, now propound the advent of an age of terror? Could a faith that has over 1.6 billion followers the world over, and over 7 million in America, actually advocate the killing and maiming of innocent people? Could Islam, whose name itself stands for "peace" and "submission to God", encourage its adherents to work for death and destruction? For too long, have we relied on stereotypical images in the news media and in Hollywood films, for answers to these pertinent questions. It is time now to look at the source of Islam, and its history, to determine whether Islam does indeed advocate violence.
"Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors." (Quran, 5:32)
Whoever saves a life is considered as if he had saved all the people. For example, a doctor who tries to bring a person that is about to die to life with medical treatment and divine approval or a person who tries to stop a war that continues at its all speed and severity and ends it, or another person who tries to supply food for the people who are about to die of starvation or tries to help people survive a natural disaster; those people are regarded to do the same good task. This quote shows the value of a single human life. Thus the Qur\'an prohibits homicide in clear terms. The taking of criminal\'s life by the state in order to administer justice is required to uphold the rule of law, and peace and security of the society. Only a proper and competent court can decide whether an individual has forfeited his right to life by disregarding the right to life and peace of other human beings.
Now let\'s talk about people that killed thousands of people and never blamed as Terrorist:
Hitler, he was a christian, but christians was never blamed as terrorists.
Joseph Stalin called as uncle joe, he killed 20 million human beings including 14.5 million were starved to death. He wasn\'t a Muslim
Mao Tse Tsung, killed over 14 million human beings, he wasn\'t a Muslim.
Benito Mussolini, killed 400 thousand human beings, he wasn\'t Muslim.
Ashoka, in Kalinga Battle killed 100 thousands human beings, and he wasn\'t a Muslim.
Embargo put by George Bush in Iraq. Â½ million children has been killed in Iraq alone!!!
French killed 1.5 millions in Algeria.
World war 1, 17 million dead, caused by non Muslims.
World War 2, 50-55 million dead, caused by non-Muslims.
