WHY Do you Kill?

This is an INCREDIBLY controversial topic and may be upsetting to people. Apologies if this affects you badly. It doesn’t matter to me how much attention this post gets; I’m getting my thoughts out.

First of all, congrats to America on legalising gay marriage across all states! ๐Ÿ™‚ And to those who say it is a breach of democracy, I say this: that is hypocritical, as before, America (and many, many others) allowed gay people to be abused. That is all.

Just wondering: do you want me to make a post on that later? I have several things lined up I want to talk about ๐Ÿ˜€ Would you be interested in reading my thoughts on it?

The topic I want to talk about now is the recent shootings in Tunisia.

It makes me sick.

If you’re GOING to kill, kill the people who deserve it. Not the people who have done NOTHING to you.

Those people? They’ve got a family. They’ve got lives. BOOM, gone. For WHAT?

Please correct me if I’m wrong because I’m not good on scripture, as I’m not religious and believe in no God. In the Qur’an, it says something along the lines of this: “Do not take a life that Allah has made sacred, except for a just cause.”

Is THIS just? Those that say they are Muslim, who have orchestrated these attacks – what is just about killing those who have done NOTHING to you except exist, exist and be THERE?

I think in the Qur’an it also says that you may only be permitted to kill if you are being persecuted for your religion and run from your homes. Are you? Are these people doing that?

I could get death threats, now. I don’t care. I want to say what I WANT to say, because I live in the UK and we have free speech, and I’m saying that THIS IS WRONG!

People persecute many Muslims now, and THAT’s wrong. It’s only a SMALL percentage that are doing this. And to THAT small percentage I say:

If Allah is out there, what would he think of you? WHY do you do this? Educate me, go on! Tell me why you opened fire on a beach of tourists.

This makes me ill. This can happen to ANYONE.

Rant over. I’m sorry. I’m just angry and upset.

What are your thoughts? Any criticism or challenging of my beliefs welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ As long as there is no religious hatred. (Although then agaiIn, aren’t I doing that by being hateful towards these people?)

  1. I just… whatever their reasons, those people were innocent. They weren’t soldiers! They were just people! And then, they’re killed by people who believe in Allah- if they ARE Muslim anyway- despite the fact that that the Qur’an tells them not to kill needlessly. It’s one thing to kill people in self-defence, quite another to shoot innocent people. Ugh.

  2. It’s horrible that these people use religion as their excuse. But in the attacks they also killed Muslims. And ISIS as a whole has killed far far far more Muslims in the global south than in the western world. People often look at these people, hear that they’re saying ‘we’re Muslim’ and look to the Quran to judge why they’re doing it. But you need to understand that these are hateful people who are filled with hate. They’ve been brainwashed and there many many reasons why.
    But at the end of the day, they’re just that – hateful people.
    It’s painful & it’s scary. I just hope people can see these people for what they are rather than branding the whole religion like that. After all in 2010 about 23% of the world was Muslim. If we were all like that then there wouldn’t be much left of the world would there!
    Also in regards to some of the quotes you’ve quoted from the Quran – you have to look at the context. The Quran was revealed in sections, sometimes sentence by sentence to deal with something happening directly at that time. I’m not an expert on the topic so I can’t explain it well but what I do know is there’s no space for what they did in Islam.

    • From what I know of the religion, I agree, though I’m not a definable judge on the topic. I just think what they’re doing is vile and wrong, but that the majority of Muslims do not condone it.

  3. Read the Old testament, god starts telling believers to kill people way back then.
    Deuteronomy 20:17 “”Only in the cities of these peoples that the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, you shall not leave alive anything that breathes. 17″But you shall utterly destroy them, the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, as the LORD your God has commanded you, 18so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the LORD your God”
    That’s just a sample. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Being Muslim, and living in a conservative Muslim country too, I’ve grown up seeing these kinds of killings, people murdering innocents in the name of Islam. And it’s horrible. Because the world needs to know, that this isn’t Islam – they’re a very small percentage. The real Islam tells us not harm anyone or anything, and yet – a lot of people in the world have no idea, thanks to terrorist groups and the like, who kill anyone who doesn’t know verses of the Quran etc etc. That isn’t what the actual religion is.

    SO THANK YOU FOR THIS POST.

    • And thank YOU for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m trying to understand Islam even more now. Perhaps I should read the Qur’an – and the Bible and the Torah and the Guru Granth Sahib alongside – because I want to understand.

  5. Good question, I am not sure that even the people doing the question can answer that. My guess is that they kill for a fix of power and control in a world where they for whatever disordered reason come to value those virtues over genuine ones.
