Simple, regardless of where they come from or where they go, their primary objective is to use violence to impose their beliefs on others.

By that metric, the same is true of Christians.

When you say christians, you mean what? the pope? the orthodox church?

because it's been a while since christians last strapped bombs to their torso and blew themselves up together with whomever happened to stand by

I never claimed otherwise. Christians 500 years ago were at about the same level of social development as Muslims are today. The only difference is that civil society has been working to civilize the Christians over all those generations. Today, the vast majority of Christians have been civilized and aren't any threat to others--there are "throwbacks" but they really aren't that common given the number of Christians there are. That process, however, is only in the early stages with Muslims and no matter what anyone does they're going to be a significant danger to others for many generations to come. We forget that at our own peril.

I love that someone downvoted you for quoting their actual beliefs. Ripped right from the holy book, how can you defend that? Mistranslation?

Why wouldn't we? May I quote myself?

Being islamophobic shouldn't carry a negative connotation like being racist.

Islam is an opt-in ideology full of negative and backwards tenets incompatible with modern Western society.

Being islamophobic should be the default position for anyone who values the principles of equality and freedom for all.

But can't the same thing be said about Christianity as well? So are you Christianophobic as well? Just curious. Although it can be argued that the christian world doesn't adhere to the bible as literally as Muslims do.

Because they want to impose sharia law and require everyone to submit?

I know, right? I'm seriously wary of any belief system that scorns the consumption of delicious bacon.

I'm not hostile to Muslims. But I'm hostile to Islam because it is a religion of deception, violence and hate.

Your question is misleading as the vast maojrity of people in general are not supportive of Islam. The poll here is standard. Only 21% of people have a favorable view of Islam. 55% have an unfavorable view, with the remaining 25% (rounding is why these values sum to 101%) undecided.

Here is an interesting gallup research article on perceptions towards Islam with some interesting datums such as the fact that those who show the least bias against Islam also know the least about the religion. And even of those with no prejudice against Muslims themselves, only 34% have a favorable view of Islam itself.

Perhaps you mean to ask why the vast majority of non Muslims are not supportive of Islam?

A large portion of Muslims are hostile to us.
