The book “Because They Hate” by Brigitte Gabriel founder of Act for America factually details from her childhood experiences in Lebanon the Islamic hate taught and practiced by Muslims against non-Muslims.

Although often hidden in most circumstances, hate for others is dominant among Muslims because the Quran teaches, and Muhammad practiced, a hate toward all infidels (non-Muslims).  Any religion that teaches hate for other humans is a bad religion.  In any religion, there are always individuals that hate others even against the teachings of their religion, but when a religion itself hates other groups of people that religion is a bad religion.

Hate is the seed of the final fruit of religious murder.  For a person to be so insensitive to the human crime of the act of religious murder, a person must first hate.  Because a person who continually hates desensitizes him or herself, and also at the same time dehumanizes the person being hated.  Hate, followed by desensitization, followed by dehumanization is a chain of attitudes leading to all human atrocities.  The Quran teaches hate, desensitizes people to that hate by repeating and promoting it, and then dehumanizes opposing religious groups of people by referring to those religious groups as animals –pigs, cows and monkeys in the Quran.

Religious people soaked in this type of hate indoctrination have little difficulty killing a targeted group or person.  Bombing, beheading, torture, rape, genocide are very easy to carry out by these people.  A religion that promotes religious hate is a bad religion.

It all starts with hate.  Hate is not justified by religious devotion to a book, a man, or a god.

Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.   Martin Luther King, Jr.
