I find it interesting that the peaceful earlier passages are ruled out by the later passages. And that its about a religious ideology, or perhaps even a theocracy, wherein democracy is abominable. Its the later statements of the Qu’ran, which abdicate the earlier peaceful ideas of Mohammed that creates the basis for Sharia law. Sharia Law is based on the later (or most recent) writings of Mohammed which is the most violent. And its perfectly okay to lie to non-muslims under the prinicple of Taqiyya.
I’ve done extensive research on Islam, but all of these things can be verified with Islamic sources. There are people trying to reform Islam, however there’s no way that they’re going to be successful.

It’s hard to believe that those who follow the God of Abraham would not be compassionate and merciful. The video seem to lack a great deal of reference to the Haddith. To do so would be similar to equating Catholicism solely on the Bible. Without the guidance of the church, the Bible could easily be misunderstood.
There is so much depth to religion in general. To know one, one must really dive into it with an open heart to just grasp the initial part of it. It takes a lifetime to grow into one’s faith enough to finally say Yes, I am truly home. Only then can we then be able to share what we know of the faith.
These researches of Islam, are they from the heart?
When I was searching religions, I did extensive research into Islam; there were certain principles that didn’t follow logically. If you wish to discuss this privately my e-mail is verbumveritatisblog at gmail dot com
