Fact-Checking "10 Lies You Were Told about Islam" (Part 3)
Recently, AllTime10s posted a video titled “10 Lies You Were Told about Islam” (View YouTube video). The video attempts to respond to various false claims made about Islam and Muslims. However, the “research” for the video was incredibly sloppy, and a number of false statements were made. For instance, the video insists that ISIS is “anti-Islamic” because the group has targeted Muslims. However, the Qur’an commands its adherents to wage jihad not only against unbelievers, but also against “hypocrites” (i.e., Muslims who aren’t really following Islam). Not surprisingly, the early Muslim community was characterized by bloodshed, with various groups accusing other groups of being hypocrites and apostates. Since Muhammad called the first generation of Muslims the “best of peoples,” can we really say that it’s “anti-Islamic” for ISIS to wage jihad against Muslims they regard as hypocrites?
