Hillary disses Christians

Clinton Vows to Reach Out to Islamic World - washingtonpost.com reported Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday the Obama administration will make "a concerted effort" to restore the image of the United States in the Islamic world and will seek to "enlist the help of Muslims around the world against the extremists."

She just does not understand Islam.
.... Clinton's remarks came in response to a question about the "prejudice" in the United States against Muslims because of terrorism, a term she rejected forcefully, pointing to the history of Christians. "I am a Christian," she said. "Through the centuries we have had many people who have done terrible things in the name of Christianity.
But the Bible did not tell them to do what they were doing. The Koran does tell the jihadists to do exactly what they are doing.
They have perverted the religion."

Don, you got me again - give Hillary some credit - she is trying to point out that EVERY RELIGION has it's bad points and good points.Truth is, you cannot reason with suicide bombers, but there are many muslims who are normal and not suicidal....ANON

PS: I have friends who are Egyptian and follow the Koran. They are wonderful people. I think Hillary was only pointing out that we are different, but basically the same. Of course, I am talking about the normal, average person, not some nut case who is a suicide bomber. We can take a history lesson here. For the love of THEIR beliefs and religion, some people do strange/or dangerous things....ANON

Many kind wonderful people may say they follow the Koran, but that does not mean that the jihadists are not following the Koran, such as 9:29 Fight those who do not believe in God and the Last Day and do not forbid what God and his Messenger have forbidden — such men as practice not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book [i.e., Christians and Jews] – until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled

Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 19: The Book of Jihad and Expedition (Kitab Al-Jihad wa'l-Siyar) 19:4294 says Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war .... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. [A special tax that Jews and Christians must pay to live in a Muslim country. Followers of other religions are just killed outright if they refuse to convert to Islam.] If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. [i.e. they must convert to Islam, pay a special very high tax so they can live as second class citizens, or die.]

"Whoever changes his religion, kill him" which is called for in Bukhari, Abu Dawud, and many other Haddith that are not online, including Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, An-Nasai, the Muwatta of Imam Malik, Tayalisi, Ibn Hanbal, Ibn Hibban, the Sunan al-Kubraa, Bayhaqi, Abu Ya'laa, Humaidi, Abd al-Razzaq, and Ibn Abi Shaybah.

Islam discriminates against women. Surah 4:11 says Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children's (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females

Well, I never liked the fact that females were discriminated against. But that happens in other cultures too. The Chinese don't want female children either. I just want to say that you are a hell of a lot smarter than I am on the subject....ANON
