Islam is promoted as being a "religion of peace". But when the teachings of their "holy" book, the Qur'an, are examined, there is much more teaching of violence, including the killing and maiming of those who do not submit to the worldview started by Muhammad.
Vic Eliason presented the evidence by reading a number of verses from the Qur’an, and from the companion sayings of Muhammad and traditions in the Hadith, which specifically order Muslims to kill or maim non-Muslim "infidels", especially Jews and Christians.
These verses are taken from the English translation of the Qur'an done by Usama Dakdok, a Christian raised in Egypt, who now leads "The Straightway of Grace Ministry" to reach out to Muslim people in the United States. They have been collected in a 20-page booklet, “Verses in the Qur’an That Teach Violence”, which has been printed by VCY America and is now available individually or in quantities.
Listeners then called in with their comments.
A complete literal translation of the Qur’an is available from Usama Dakdok’s ministry:
