CNN’s Don Lemon Wants to Know Whether Islam Is Most Viοlent Religion

CNN’s Don Lemon is back from reporting in Ferguson, MO and now he’s taking up the issue don lemon2of religion. During a segment where Lemon discussed terror group ISIS, the reporter questioned how Islam stacks up against other religions.

“Is Islam more violent than any other faith?” Lemon asked his panelists.  Author Tawfik Hamid said “other religions” also have verses that can lead to viοlence if interpreted literally.

“Yes, it must be, otherwise how could all these groups take the name of Islam to become viοlent and do what they do?” answered former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes.

“By saying that Islam is more violent than any other religion, it doesn’t mean that other religions aren’t violent,” Lemon added. “We’re talking about history and the reality here. If you’re looking at the bombing of abοrtion clinics, you’re not looking at the numbers of a 9/11, you’re not looking at the numbers of a Boko Haram, you’re not looking at the many people who are kιlled from ISIS and beheαded.”

The conversation over Islam has been renewed now that ISIS has beheαded journalists Steve Sotloff and James Foley.

“Our objective is clear, and that is: degrade and destroy ISIL so that it’s no longer a threat, not just to Iraq but also to the region and to the United States,” President Obama said after Sotloff’s mυrder. “It’s not only that we’re going to be bringing to justice those who perpetrated this terrible crime against these two fine young men.”

“We will not be intimidated,” the president added. “Their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists.”

President Obama made his comments while attending a NATO summit on Wednesday. He has reportedly been working to build an alliance against ISIS while meeting with world leaders.

  1. Nothing can be more brutal than slavery that was practiced and endorsed by so called Christians right here in the United States. The so called Christians murdered, raped, sold and beat humans for over 300 years. You decide which religion is the most violent.

  2. Wish the POTUS had that same view point about all of the young Black men being gunned down on the streets of Chicago, or all of the young Black men being killed across Amerikkka, by white racist civilians and police.

  3. Godfather05, you are so on point, but them or no one else wishes to discuss that part of Amerikkka's Inhumane history.

  4. I thought Christianity was the most violent religion. It was Christians that enslaved Africans, and went throughout the world conquering indigenous people and taking their land and natural resources (gold, diamonds, oil, etc.). Ask the Native Americans, the South Africans, the Aborigines, the Palestinians, etc.

  5. No other religion more violent than Christianity!

  6. Truth is that, Judaism, Islam and Christiany are all based on PEACE and founded in the Spirit of GOD, @ different points, all 3 have been used for Violence & War, and the Subjugation of others. We could all write list of the Evils that have been and are being done in their Names. But it is human's that is the PROBLEM, not Ideology, but Our lack of Understanding and Tolerance and Love for others where we Differ. I have been waiting for decades to express this.

  7. And you expressed it well.

  8. Well Spoken – A religion is inactive, it the individuals who act out who are visible – I have not read the Islam or the Buda or Hindu or any other religious text but I know they are for the good of mankind.

  9. Lee Goode Jr I mostly agree with you except in the case of Judaism. Unlike Islam and Christianity, Judaism does not proselytize nor believe in or promote conversion to their religion as the only means to spiritual salvation. They believe that you do not need to become a Jew to have spiritual salvation. You just have to be a righteous person as defined by the Noahide Laws which include all of the 10 Commandments excluding the God related ones. This is based on Noah having salvation and being a pagan as he historically lived prior to Abraham who started Judaism. They view their war for Israel as self defense and the I slamists keep saying they won’t stop until all the Jews are dead. Christians and Muslims believe in proselytizing and forced conversion and think they have the only correct spiritual path. So truly, historically, Christianity and Islam are the two most violent religions who sow the seeds of hatred and intolerance on a daily basis while patting themselves on the back in putrid piousness. Evil religions full of Satan’s spawn. They are all in for a rude awakening because they promote prejudice, intolerance, murder and hatred in the name of the Gods they worship. The reality is there are as many paths as there are people in the world. There is no right or wrong belief as long as they are positive and help you to be a better person. Religion is just something society used to control society much as secular laws do today. Religion and government need to be kept separate to avoid the destruction of the world. Haven’t you noticed that religion is behind most wars and other worldwide evils like slavery and the vile treatment of women? At this point in my life, with the exception of Buddhism, they all appear to be evil and decaying institutions. They will ultimately destroy the world. Wolves in sheep’s clothing.

  10. That

  11. I don

  12. There are a fair number of info in this article that I would not have come up with on my own. My gratitude for your clear info.

  13. You’ve discussed a few valid points here. It would be good if a great number of people look at this post.
