For a total count, “Islamic terrorist have carried out more than 25, 210 deadly terror attacks since 9/11” (thereligionofpeace.com). A major problem is the terror group Isis or Isil, as they like to be called. Since the terror group has formed in the previous summer, there have been more recent terror strikes around the globe.

Other times, it’s more of spreading it out of fear or for control. What the Muslim’s have is much more than a drive; it’s pure evil. What they believe is something more pure for their daily lives is what causes global distress. The Quran, gives more evidence of how unjustified it preaches. “And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words right out of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah DESTROY them; how they are turned away!" (Sura 3, verse 28, nowtheendbegins.com). Islam differs strongly from Christianity. A Christian is commanded to love others rather than to kill others. "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless those that curse you, do good to the ones that hate you, and pray for them which deceitfully use you, and persecute you;" Matthew 5:44 (nowtheendbegins.com).

Another example is during the middle ages when the Jews were being persecuted. They had no where to turn to, except for Spain, which was known as Muslim territory. There, the Jews had survived and blossomed into the “Golden Ages”. After the Muslim fall of Spain, the Jews followed them to India where both religions respected each other’s believes and there was peace. This caused Islam to spread rampantly since, a lot like Christianity, it upheld it’s message of peace, equality, and brotherhood. The Quran is not all about killing, as there are a couple verses of why Muslims should attack. "God only forbids you to tum in friendship towards such as those who fight against You because of (your faith) and drive you forth from your homeland, or aid (others) in driving your forth" (60:9).
