While many claim that Islam is a religion of peace, that is definetly not the case with Literal Islam. A religion based on literal following of a book is only as peaceful as the book it follows, and Qur’an is an extremely violent piece of literature, as can be seen from citations compiled in the link.

    Same can be said about the Bible, the likes of ISIS are a Neo-Kharijite sect(The Kharijites are the first Muslim extremists who appeared during the Sunni-Shia split), I’m quite familiar with their theology, and it’s something relatively new yet drawing from this extremist sect which Imam Ali(Prophet Muhammad’s cousin) fought against, it would be quite exhaustive to respond against every verse but for the most part, a lot of it taken out of its historical context, but then again I read it in the light of its historical and cultural context, since in my opinion it cannot be separated from those things. I don’t think Islam is any worse than any other religion, the difference is, the mess in certain regions of the Muslim world and political instability which allow for extremist groups to rise in popularity, I think things are usually more complicated than meets the eye:

      Bible is indeed violent, but nowhere to the level of Qor’an, as far as number of violent passages relative to the length of the book goes. Further, most Biblical verses are limited to historical context (descriptions of events) unlike open-ended verses of Qur’an. So no, Bible is not peaceful, far from it, but it is incorrect to say that it is “same” as Qur’an. I have an article about that in works, but as I am writing several articles in paralel (some military, some non-military) it will be some time before it is posted.
