When Islamic terror strikes our country, we’re told by the Left that Islam is just a “religion of peace that has occasionally been hijacked by extremists.”

But is it?

Here’s the truth, courtesy of Robert Spencer: Islam is the opposite of a religion of peace.

In fact, Islam is the only religion which demands violence against unbelievers. All mainstream sects of Islam teach this doctrine with no exceptions, and Islamic legal systems reinforce it.

This doesn’t mean that all Muslims are engaged in violence, however, to deny that violent jihad is not part of mainstream Islamic teaching is to suggest that Muslims both today and throughout history have drastically misunderstood their own religion.

Are you having difficulty believing that? So are we.
