ISLAM is the RELIGION OF PIECES – Here is a list of consecutive terror attacks in 30 days

Islam, the “religion of peace” has killed over 1,000 people and injured nearly another 2,000 in the past 30 days alone. The peaceful religion of Islam makes one shiver to think what a hostile religion would do.

'And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.' (Quran 17:16)

"And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction." (Quran 17:16)


One of these religions killed 1,087 people in 20 countries over the last 30 days. The others have killed approximately zero. But only one is the “religion of peace.” Can you guess which?

If you guessed Islam, you’re correct. But we think there’s a mistake in spelling.

Islam is the religion of PIECE.

Men, women, children, cut into pieces. Blown to pieces. Shot to pieces.

Islam is the only religion that calls for this as part of its holy text. It is the only religion whose members blow churches and marketplaces to pieces on a daily basis.

They pack historical monuments with high explosives and destroy pieces of history, heritage and culture as they go. Schools? lying in pieces. Police stations? In pieces.

Islam is the common denominator in all these attacks. Every attacker cites their Islamic belief as a motivation. Only Islam has “radical Imams.” Those are clergy that call for actual killing of people from their pulpits.

When have you heard a Buddhist monk make such a call, or how long since a pope said such a thing?

How many Hindus make suicide attacks? How many Taoists blow up schools or monuments?

Islam is the religion of pieces, blowing people and peace to pieces. It is a shameful stain on the face of the world. And any Muslim that makes a genuine plea for peace and understanding is an apostate. They belong to the another Islam that ignores selected parts of the Koran. Half-Islam, half something else, who’s to say what they are? But real Islam is a religion of terror, and deserves no place in a civilized world.

Upset about that? Read: “Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit. Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward .” (Quran 4:95)

We’re sick and tired of reports like these. When will the world put an end to this massive human embarrassment?

    Despite all these, we still have a minimal number of them that are actually peaceful. Let’s continue to pray that the hostile killers among them will one day be touched like Saul in the Bible and be transformed in like manner through Jesus Christ, the only son God our Lord, Amen.

  2. Aliyah Reply

    Hell must be this kind of refusal to gaze at the truth within one’s own soul, an inability to engage with the evil caused by ones own culture, people, and milieu. That list there cannot even reach the numbers of those destroyed by Anglo-Saxon wars, not Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, nothing that has been accounted for to date. Not to metion the ones rendered invisible in acts of such horror that no doubt angels turn away; the drone murders in Yemen, Afghanistan, the unending decimation of lives by those who dare lift a finger to accuse Islam of violence, when the people who undertake that violence, Al-Qaeda, Al Shabbab and ISIS are created, forged, nurtured and (who then abandon) the very people painting them as violent. May God have mercy on all our souls and certainly our gaze so we can see the truth about ourselves and remove the log in our eyes. Amen

    “Islam is the only religion that calls for this as part of its holy text”
    Nonsense. That’s a bald-faced lie.
    Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)
    They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)
    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)
    If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)
    Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)
    “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.” (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)
    That should be enough to get us started…. there is more..
    “When have you heard a Buddhist monk make such a call, or how long since a pope said such a thing?”
    At least there is an acknowledgement that the RCC has done the same thing – in fact about 5 – 600 years ago, Christianity was killing everyone and each other with great delight and enthusiasm, and Islam started about 5 – 600 years later, so we’re just seeing the same pattern. The difference is that the weapons are more dangerous today. The problem is still the same.
    It’s not a question of “religion of peace,” but rather a question of “religion OR peace.”

      Patrick you provided utter nonsense yourself, especially the last paragraph about “Christianity was killing everyone else and each other with great delight and enthusiasm”. Please entertain us with the TRUSTED source of this information. I’m not going to comment on the Old Testament excerpts you provided but I recommend you seek a trusted Catholic biblical scholar for proper context of these passages. For instance, on Sirius radio, channel 130 at 3:00 is a program called “Called to Communion” that can give scholarly feedback to that, especially Fr. Mitch Pacwa on Wednesdays. You just can’t stop trolling this website can you?

        Ronnie, just look back in history 500 – 600 years ago. There were all sorts of religious wars during that period. The German Peasant’s War, the battle of Kappel in Switzerland, The Schmalkaldic War in the Holy Roman Empire, the Eighty Years War in the Low Countries, the French Wars of Religion, the Thirty Years’ War affecting the Holy Roman Empire. Go back 100 years from that… This is high school history Ronnie. Google ‘European Wars of religion’ for a start. The Muslims are just a half century behind in doing the exact same thing Christianity did, and they started a half century later than Christianity, so it could be a coincidence, or it could be a pattern. After two or three hundred years of killing each other over religion – say up until after the American Revolution – the first major country in western civilization not founded on a religion – Christians eventually tired of killing each other. That was what made the US unique, and it worked. We avoided religious wars in the US. Islam isn’t there yet.
        You say you’re not going to comment on the passages I took from the OT, but if you can accuse me of taking any of them out of context, then the author can be accused of taking any Islamic passages out of context. That knife cuts both ways. In fact, having read the “good” book more than once, I know they are all pretty much in context. Have you read the entire bible yourself? If not, then you are in no position to accuse me.
        Accusing me of trolling doesn’t make it so. I almost always include information, or ask probing questions, or point out unpleasant realities, but the intention is to evoke honest discussion, not to start personal battles. Yes, my language was a little harsher than usual in my post, but the author’s statement was ludicrous. Please note that I provided sources to back up my statements – the author made a foolish statement in stating only Islam calls for violence as part of its holy text, and I pointed it out, and backed up my accusation. If you want to call that trolling, go ahead and do so. The author perhaps took advantage of the fact that very few Christians actually read the bible and would be in any position to dispute it.

    The problem with religion today is when we are talking of peace someone is taking us back wards. If the movement of Islam did not kill half of the world it did kill part of the world through jihad an making sure everybody become one. The old testament he Patrick quoted from is an eye for an eye.
