At least the in reality you’re still with each other. Proper Valentine’s Day art! Hope everyone had a good one!
To say, “Oh no, committing a violence is non-Islamic, Islam is a religion of peace,” is disingenuous because there are religiously acceptable acts of violence in the Qur’an. You’re switching the terms. In Islam, peace means submission to your creator, not the absence of violence, so saying that…
What is disingenuous is implying that whenever any Muslim says that Islam is a religion of peace, they are being willfully deceptive. What a shonde.
Yes, as you pointed out in another post, all Abrahamic religions have types of violence that are permissible.
However, given the degree to which Islam is currently deemed responsible as a whole for their violent outliers, Jews are rarely held responsible for their outliers, and Christianity is even more rarely said to be a violent religion in light of the many individual and societal violences enacted by some Christians, Islam is, I think, a special case when it comes to this conversation; Muslims are in a position unique among religious communities of being cast in a completely violent light.
When a Muslim says, “our religion is a religion of peace”, they are not saying “our ethics is a wholly pacifistic system”, they are saying “we are not the violent people that everyone claims we are as a justification for violent campaigns against Muslims.” And they are certainly not, as a whole, the deceivers you are painting them as.
