Islam a religion of peace or violence?

The Qur´an has two faces: peace and violence. It is true that the Qur'an has some peacekeeping practices (Qur’an 8:61, 47:35). But it is from an attitude of superiority over others and there is no clear approach such as in the Gospel. Jesus said: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Mathew 5:9). The lifestyle of Jesus was in agreement what he preached. With Muhammad we find the opposite. Muhammad was in fact a warlord when he became superior to his enemies. Therefore we find verses in the Qur'an like: "And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you" (Qur´an 2:191) and "Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah" (Qur´an 2:193). Today, Islam is in a crisis because of the violence of so many terrorists, motivated by the Qur'an, the life of Muhammad and Islam's history. The Muslim terrorists say that they are operating according to the guidelines of Islam, and no Sunni Muslim can refute them. It is likely Sunni Islam will be reformed. There is a big risk that Muslims with limited education use the call to violence in the Qur'an to do terror actions. The hope for Islam comes from the liberal Muslim scholars Taha and An-Na’im. They believe that the Qur’an must be limited to the Meccan part only. The Meccan Qur'an is full of with charity, tolerance and monotheism. The Medinan Qur'an has the call to violence and other principles against human rights. But why reform Islam? There is a better way with the Savior of mankind, Jesus Christ. More:
