- Jerry Falwell said that “…Muhammad was a terrorist. I’ve read enough of the history of his life written by both Muslims and non-Muslims, that he was a violent man, a man of war.” That particular comment triggered a riot in India which killed at least 14 people.
- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) singled out Evangelical Christian “Franklin Graham who has claimed that terrorism is part of ‘mainstream’ Islam and that the Quran, Islam’s revealed text, ‘preaches violence.’ Graham also called Islam an ‘evil and wicked religion.’ “
- Conservative Christian author and radio pastor Dave Hunt claims: “…there are more than 100 verses in the Qur’an advocating the use of violence to spread Islam. In the Qur’an, Allah commands Muslims, ‘Take not the Jews and Christians as friends….Slay the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever ye find them…. Fight against such…as believe not in Allah…’ (Surah 5:51; 9:5,29,41, etc..). Though most Muslims would shrink from obeying such commands, this is official Islam and it cannot change without admitting that Muhammad was a false prophet and murderer.”
