  1. Great, let’s celebrate in the name of a religion that is murdering people by the thousands in the name of their blood-thirsty deity every year. Sorry BlackBerry Review, I thought you had higher standards than this. Instead, you’ve swallowed political correctness hook, line and sinker. Bye.

    • That’s incredibly bigoted, mate. Religion cannot murder people, people murder people. And note that these people are mis-using the religion as a tool for their own personal goals. The number of peaceful Muslims vastly, and I mean vastly, outnumbers the number of ‘terrorists’. Please educate yourself before spewing hate.

  2. When did speaking the truth suddenly become “incredibly bigoted”? The belief that “the number of peaceful Muslims vastly, and I mean vastly, outnumbers the number of ‘terrorists’” is a known myth. Pew Research did a poll not too long ago and it indicated that 21% of Egyptians, 15% of Jordanians, 13% of Pakistani Muslims find terrorism acceptable, if not laudable. If you add up the numbers in just three countries alone it’s over 40 million Muslims who sympathize with violence against Christians. And this is just three countries! This shouldn’t be understated. The fact of the matter is that there have been well over 23,300 documented acts of Islamic terrorism committed in the name of “Allah” since 9/11/2001 alone. Islamic terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years. More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in two hours on September 11th than in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. 19 Muslim hijackers killed more innocents in two hours on September 11th than the number of American criminals executed in the last 65 years. Approximately 270 million non-Muslims were slaughtered over the last 1400 years for the deity of Islam. Moreover, in 2007 when Islam and Judaism’s holiest holidays overlapped for 10 days, Muslims racked up 397 dead bodies in 94 terror attacks across 10 countries during this time while Jews worked on their 159th Nobel Prize.

    The reality on the ground is what speaks volumes, and the reality is that Christians and non-Muslims in general are being slaughtered in droves on a daily basis all throughout the Islamic world while a significant percentage of Muslims in the West either support, sympathize or remain silent in light of it all. If you refuse to accept Pew’s polling above, how about an ICM poll revealing that 20% of British Muslims sympathized with the 7/7 bombers or NOP Research that found 1 in 4 British Muslims who justified the 7/7 bombings? How about the People-Press’ finding that 31% of Turkish Muslims supported suicide attacks against Westerners in Iraq? What about YNet’s research that found nearly one third of Palestinians (32%) supported the slaughter of Jewish families, including the children? How about a WPO research that found 61% of Egyptians approve of attacks on Americans, 32% of Indonesians approved, 41% of Pakistanis approved, 38% of Moroccans approved, 83% of Palestinians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans, 62% of Jordanians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans, 42% of Turks approve of some or most groups that attack Americans? What about the Populus Poll that found 37% of all British Muslims viewed Jews in Britain as “legitimate targets”?

    We all need to face reality and make a stand against what is happening. There was a group of progressive Muslims in Toronto who rallied against terrorism last year, and I commend this group highly for making a stand, But you have to admit that something is woefully wrong in the Islamic community when a city that is home to hundreds of thousands of Muslims can only manage to draw 24 of them to protest against Islamic terrorism. How can this happen? Here are a couple of “holy” teachings from Islam. It’s not difficult to connect the dots and figure out preceisly what is wrong here:

    Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

    Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

    • Hey guys knock it off. This is not the place or the forum for this sort of discussion. We are just reporting on the fact that there are free apps to be had celebrating a local holiday in certain countries. Let’s leave the politics to the sites that thrive off that sort of conflict. On BerryReview we simply try to help others by sharing knowledge. Try to stay in that community spirit.

  3. Michael is absolutely right. Islam is a religion that teaches its followers to lie to non-Muslims and tells them that they can never be friends with non-Muslims because those who don’t believe in the Koran are vile creatures. I should know, because I used to be a Muslim. As for Ramadan, it’s a time when we used to watch TV programs telling us how evil Jews were (and Christians) and why we needed to hate them. If anyone is bigoted here it isn’t Michael, he’s simply telling it like it is. Islam is not a religion of peace, it is a religion of hatred, violence, war, misogyny, and Arab supremacy. For crying out loud watch some international news from time to time and stop being so politically correct. How can anybody defend Islam without even knowing what it teaches is beyond me.

  4. It is true, Islam is not a religion of peace it is a religion of war and blood-thirst, yes even during the “holy” month of Ramadan. We are only 9 days in to Islam’s holiest month and already there have been 70 terror attacks with nearly 400 killed and nearly 500 injured in the name of allah and his so-called prophet. But in the name of other religions? Zero, zero and zero reports. What else can we expect from a “religion” that has a holy book teaching its believers “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward” (Qur’an Sura 4:95)?

    This passage not only criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not partake in violent Jihad, but also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” means a “spiritual struggle” and not holy war in the Qur’an. It is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad).

    There is a reason why Islam is the religion of terrorism. Here are some other verses from the Qur’an that are in obvious disagreement with the modern lie that Islam is a “peaceful religion”:

    Qur’an Sura 4:76,“Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

    Qur’an Sura 2:244, “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Qur’an Sura 2:216, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

    Qur’an Sura 3:151, “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of killing Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

    Qur’an Sura 4:74, “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

    Qur’an Sura 4:89, “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Qur’an Sura 4:104, “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Pursuing an injured enemy is not an act of self-defense.

    Qur’an Sura 5:33, “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    Qur’an Sura 8:12, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Qur’an Sura 8:15, “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

    Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah”

    Qur’an Sura 8:57, “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

    Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:5, “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:14, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

    Qur’an Sura 9:20, “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

    Qur’an Sura 9:29, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:30, “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

    Qur’an Sura 9:38-39, “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

    Qur’an Sura 9:41, “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:73, “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:88, “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:111, “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

    Qur’an Sura 9:123, “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

    Qur’an Sura 21:44, “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

    Qur’an Sura 25:52, “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an).” “Strive against” is Jihad, obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

    Qur’an Sura 47:4, “So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,”

    Qur’an Sura 47:35, “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for Allah is with you,”

    Qur’an Sura 48:17, “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.”

    Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves”

    Qur’an Sura 61:4, “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way”

    Qur’an Sura 61:10-12, “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

    Qur’an Sura 66:9, “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites,” those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

    If Islam were truly such a “peaceful religion” then why is it such a global headache? Check the contexts of all the verses above as well and you will see that the context is always an open-ended call to war and violence, perpetual for all time even today. Other religions describe wars in their texts, but they do not call for their believers to wage violence until only their religion overtakes the whole world, like Islam does.
