The Top Five Ways Jewish Law Justifies Killing Civilians | Islamophobia

Islamophobes like Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller claim that Islam is more violent than other religions, particularly Judaism and Christianity.  To prove this, they argue that the Islamic holy book, the Islamic prophet, and the Islamic God are all uniquely violent–certainly more so than their Judeo-Christian counterparts.We proved these claims completely bunk by showing the Bible to be far more violent than … Continue reading

Peace-Forum: The Most Violent Prophet in History “النبي الأكثر عنفا في التاريخ” “הנביא האלימים ביותר בהיסטוריה”

There is no scholarly agreement on which are the most common motivations for war. Motivations may be different for those ordering the war than for those undertaking the war. Since many people are involved, a war may acquire a life of its own from the confluence of many different motivations. In Why Nations Go to War, by John G.
