10 examples of the Koran being violent: An interview with Robert Spencer

Gavin McInnesArchive

I sit down with Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer and get specific about exactly how violent the Koran is.

Turns out, there are a helluva lot more than 10 examples. (If Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, why does the word "terror" appear in the Koran...?)

We talk about violent verses in the Koran in depth, but here are the top 10:

1. “Fight against those who do not obey Allah and do not believe in Allah or the Last Day and do not forbid what has been forbidden by Allah and His messenger even if they are of the People of the Book until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” (9:29)

2. “When the sacred months have passed, then kill the Mushrikin wherever you find them. Capture them. Besiege them. Lie in wait for them in each and every ambush but if they repent, and perform the prayers, and give zacat then leave their way free.” (9:5)

3. “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks.” (47:4)

4. “When your lord revealed to the angels, ‘truly I am with you. So, keep firm those who have believed. I will strike terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved. So, strike them at the necks and cut off their fingers’.” (8:12)

5. “Kill them wherever you find them and drive them out from where they drove you out. Persecution is worse than slaughter." (2:191)

6. “They ask you about fighting during the sacred months. Tell them, fighting therein is a great sin but a greater sin is to prevent mankind from following the way of Allah, to disbelieve in him… persecution is worse than slaughter.” (2:217)

7. “Men are the protectors and maintainers of women because Allah has made one superior to the other and because they spend to support them from their means. Therefore, righteous women are obedient and they guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard. And, as to those women from whom you fear disobedience, give them a warning, send them to separate beds, and beat them.” (4:34)

8. “Oh you who believe, fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you and let them find harshness in you.” (9:123)

9. “Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another but harsh to the disbeliever.” (48:29)

10. “And if we had willed, surely we would have given every person his guidance but the word for me took effect that I will fill Hell with jinn and mankind together.” (32:13)

BONUS ONE: “They wish that you would reject faith as they have rejected faith unless that you would all be equal. So, don’t take protectors from them unless they emigrate in the way of Allah but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them.” 4:89

It would be good to repeat this interview at a later date…not enough people have seen it, I think.
commented 2016-01-05 15:18:22 -0500
The way I look at it is " screw Mohamed, Allah, Muslims, the Koran and death to Sharia" As far as I am concerned, they can all head down the road. The are problems people…..

More facts that make someone a “racist;” scores of women sexually assaulted passing through a transit station in downtown Cologne:

“According to police, witnesses said the assaults were committed by men of “Arab or North African origin” who had gathered in large numbers near the train station.”

A decidely low-key headline considering.

Probably Christians, no?

More people Georges Mom would rather have living next door. Except, of course, she wouldn’t (and I wouldn’t wish it for her).
commented 2016-01-05 09:57:38 -0500
Great post Bravo Zulu: I guess those are the folks ’George’s Mom’ would like to live next to, not people who have discussions not being had in the MSM. Of course she did resort to the old leftist name-calling; ironically the domain of low-brow reply rather than actually rebutting with facts (the bane of the left).
commented 2016-01-04 03:14:32 -0500
Kinda strange that early on in the interview Gavin McInnes stretches forth on straight finger to scratch a scab on the right side of his nose, and then discusses the finger stretched out to symbolize the oneness of God.
Is Gavin McIness so much against Christian monotheism?
His disrespect of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism is revolting.

Guess which religious book this comes from – endorsements of men’s superiority over women, slavery, and even sexual slavery

1) If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty [units of money] of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.

Enter the text into Google to find out.

Here’s are some more. Google will tell you in each case which religious books provides the origin of the text.

2) Now as the [place of worship] submits to [divinity], so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.


3) Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.


4) Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to [divinity].


5) I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.


6) Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel…


7) Older women … are to teach what is good, and so train the young women … to be … submissive to their own husbands.


8) Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would [divinity]


9) Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly


10) Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of [divinity]


11) Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.


12) Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing [divinity]

Also (endorsement of sexual slavery?),

13) If a man lies sexually with a woman who is a slave, assigned to another man and not yet ransomed or given her freedom, a distinction shall be made. They shall not be put to death, because she was not free


14) Let all who are under a yoke as slaves regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of [divinity] and the teaching may not be reviled. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brothers; rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their good service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these things


15) And that servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating.


16) And the peoples will take them and bring them to their place, and [religious group] will possess them in [divinity]‘s land as male and female slaves. They will take captive those who were their captors, and rule over those who oppressed them.

Also (endorsement of sexual slavery?)

17) When you go out to war against your enemies, and [divinity] gives them into your hand and you take them captive, and you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you desire to take her to be your wife, and you bring her home to your house, she shall shave her head and pare her nails. And she shall take off the clothes in which she was captured and shall remain in your house and lament her father and her mother a full month. After that you may go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. But if you no longer delight in her, you shall let her go where she wants.


18) No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve [divinity] and money

Also (endorsement of selling one’s children into sexual slavery?),

19) When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed.


20) From their descendants who were left after them in [place], whom [religious group] had not destroyed—these [historical figure] drafted as forced labor, and so they are to this day.


21) I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of [religious group], and they will sell them to [other nation], to a nation far away, for [divinity] has spoken


22) A nation that you have not known shall eat up the fruit of your ground and of all your labors, and you shall be only oppressed and crushed continually

Re: comments on slavery and (non)equality of women. If you guessed the wrong book/religion, you can take solace in the fact that both the Bible and Qur’an contain many exceptions, namely that Jews or Muslims, respectively, should not be enslaved (but there are no rules against enslaving others), and also many prescriptions about treating women well.

@george‘s Mom, denial is a funny thing eh? It is a extremely debilitating sickness of leftist Liberals. When Islam comes knocking you’d better hope there are people like us around to stand up for you against such a wicked ideology. You’ve been warned and excuses like, “I didn’t know” won’t fly.
commented 2015-12-31 22:37:12 -0500
Its funny, they call this Racism, but actually, a book is not a race. I’m allowed to hate a book!!

These examples from the Koran are instructive. The next time some idiot says ISIS is not Islamic refer him to the Bukhari Hadith, Book 4 52:220 where Mohammed brags that he has been successful through terror. ISIS is emulating Mohammed.

Georges mom….It sounds like you are ranting about the left ,
commented 2015-12-30 15:45:59 -0500
I think Abu Bin Trudeau will “smite our necks” with his policies. Being anti-christian or anti-Israeli is in vogue but watch out if you say ANYTHING about muslims. You would have the human resources gestapo at your door. Sharia law got a foothold in Canada with the citizenship ceremonies.

Check out “Silence is Consent” found on Joe for America site, about a young Muslim girl telling it like it is, just hope she survives this…

@ron Voss
thankx for the link. that is an incredible article. what I gather from this article is that it is okay for muslims to kill americans but if you speak out against it, you will go to jail.
totalitarian doctrine at its finest. the left is a cancer.

@ George’s Mom
have you ever tried something useful for your country like serving in the military. I didn’t think so.
well, I have.
I have been in the middle east, I have seem the muslim men beat their women with sticks for so little as dropping a piece of fruit in the market.
you wouldn’t last five minutes over there because you have an opinion. that would be a death sentence for you.
go there, have a look for yourself. I am sure you will formulate a new opinion of them, if you survive.

And the Rebel blows its doggie whistle and true to form you sorry, angry, people (pretty much the same ones every time) gather round, gleefully spraying your ignorance and hate about.

I assume this comment board gives you some vague sense of community – a place where you can (finally) fit in? I imagine it’s hard to connect with others when you show such a lack of empathy, perspective, consideration, thoughtfulness.

And do you imagine all the Yeller-Rebels nodding approvingly as you display your filthy attitudes with statements like “islam=evil” and “do you want to live next to these psychos?”

Etc, etc, etc……………………….
Well, when you have had the chance to dig up a woman who was stoned to death for being raped by a male member of her family, or dug up a mass grave of people who were not islamic but happened to be in a place that they were not able to leave fast enough to suit the islamics or you have watched this:

Or read this:

Or perused this:

Or talked with a Canadian raised islamic who vehemently supports and WANTS sharia law in Canada

Or seen this:

Or ………

Well, it is you that needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

If you really are a female – which I doubt – then you cannot visit many places in Europe or the US of A and walk safely and un-escorted in the islamic areas such as:

Or here:

Or try to take a walk in what used to be a wonderful tourist destination such as:

If you honestly believe this will not happen here when the numbers get big enough you truly do not understand islam:

You might end up like this:

Or…..perhaps experience this:

Or when your child has this happen to her on a main street in broad daylight:

Then you might change your mind.

Be that as it may, islam = evil – and that is not hatred or racism or political incorrectness.

It is simply the realities of today.

If the truth bothers you then you can go and bury your head int he sand – and wait – if you are lucky you will experience something like this and then you can come back here and tell us how wrong we all are.

In the meantime – if you ever get a chance to visit London England I recommend it – the scenery and history is out of this world – however – if you truly are a woman – and I am pretty certain you are not – just be certain to avoid these areas:

Happy new Year to you – even trolls deserve a chance to see the light – perhaps one day you will – but I seriously doubt it.

George’s Mom;
Thank You for your comment, it clearly indicates that You and your Left Wing friends are really worried about the truth that you read on the Rebel, so worried in fact, you have lowered yourself to name calling. Thank You, again.

I think that Robert Spencer knows more about the Quaran than most Muslims do. I subscribe to his Jihad Watch and if you do not mind, between 10 and 30 emails a day in your Inbox, Jihad Watch is an excellent source of information.

“Unlike many of you I have had the benefit of lectures in the Judeo Christian scriptures “from a feminist perspective”….and I could give this back in kind with no problem……”

Unlike you Glenn, I can read. So have read Old and New Testaments, Q’ran, Twelve Deeds of Buddha, Book of Zoroaster, etc., etc.; and then formed my own opinions upon the first source readings. I would suggest you try it when you learn to read for yourself.

That said, being literate I will be checking these top ten myself for context. That is called sceptical learning, Glenn, which I know is beyond the pale of the regressive left since most are illiterate as you pointed out in your post.

Since you are obviously one who likes out of context quotes to prove your point, here is one from our true Lord, Jesus, that you can have a ball with.

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

Now being literate, I would personally check the context my self, but you being illiterate can have at it. Merry Christmas for this gift.

Do you spend the rest of your time hunting down every bit of twisted anti-muslim garbage you can find? Do you collect links to select news stories (from the mainstream media no-less) to reassure yourself you’re OK, you’re in the right, you’re entirely justified in your loathsome, anti-social perspectives.

So what’s the deal? Does it make you feel better to insist others are lesser?. Do you ever stop to see how you reflect exactly the uneducated, unexamined, narrow, bigoted, reactionary, viewpoints you claim are your number one concern – in those other folk.

On a better night I would feel sorry for you and for the hate that must be so limiting in your life. But right now I find you disgusting. Certainly not the psychos I want to live next to.

definitive proof of why muslims do not belong in western civilization.
