Careful Ben, your ignorance is showing. Ben Affleck really should not speak about Islam when he clearly has not done his homework.
1) Ben:fyi… Islam is not a race
2) You need to look up the definition of a “phobia” before you label everyone who speaks against Islam, “an Islamaphobe”
A “phobia” is an irrational “fear” of something.
People who are speaking out agains Islam, sure as hell are afraid of Muslims or Islam.
In fact, because speaking out against it can get you beheaded, I would say that people openly speaking out against Islam are courageous, not phobic. 🙂

I can’t believe I find myself actually agreeing with Bill Marher on anything, but he is right.
ISLAM IS THE PROBLEM.

The Muslims committing barbaric acts of terror and murder are not “radicals” or “extremists”… They are DEVOUT Muslims, following the dictates of their Koran.

Don’t take my word for it. Read it for yourself… all 109 verses dictating hate, murder, and terror against all people who refuse to submit or convert to Islam, are posted below this video..
I can’t believe I am actually agreeing with Bill Maher on ANYTHING, but, Maher did his homework. He speaks from a position of knowledge.
Affleck just rants emotional propaganda that he’s memorized. He can’t come back at Maher with anything substantive or refute Maher on any points… Just more typical lame name calling and emotion.
I liked Affleck at one time… Now I can’t watch him or support him because I have no respect for him. Actors need to stick with their rehearsed movie scripts, unless they actually do their homework.
Remember… those verses from the Koran are below..

Islam..VERSES FROM THE QURAN.. EVIDENCE THAT ISLAM IS Clearly and Concisely Evil, Violent, and Intolerant
September 8, 2011 at 6:43pm
Islam… Clearly and Concisely Evil and Violent.

The Quran:
Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of “persecution” (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.” The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.

Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah” From the historical context we know that the “persecution” spoken of here was simply the refusal by the Meccans to allow Muhammad to enter their city and perform the Haj. Other Muslims were able to travel there, just not as an armed group, since Muhammad declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah.” According to Ibn Ishaq (324), Muhammad justified the violence further by explaining that “Allah must have no rivals.”

Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

Quran (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.

Quran (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

Quran (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.
Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

Quran (9:38-39) – “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

Quran (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” See also the verse that follows (9:42) – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them” This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).
Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

Quran (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”
Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story, which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source, tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son.

Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

Quran (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness…” “Strive against” is Jihad – obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder” in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim generations.

Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similtudes. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,” Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle. The verse goes on to say the only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is in order to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test. “But if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

Quran (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,” This very important verse asserts that the Religion of Peace is not to grant peace to the broader society until Islamic rule has been established.

Quran (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?

Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.

Quran (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” Religion of Peace, indeed! This is followed by (61:9): “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.”

Quran (61:10-12) – “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

Quran (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.
From the Hadith:

Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.

Bukhari (52:220) – Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror’

Abu Dawud (14:2526) – The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)

Abu Dawud (14:2527) – The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious

Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah

Muslim (1:149) – “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

Muslim (20:4645) – “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”

Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.'”

Muslim (19:4321-4323) – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”

Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.

Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

Ibn Ishaq: 327 – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Ibn Ishaq: 990 – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.

Ibn Ishaq: 992 – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.

    First off, I understand what Bill Maher was saying, and I agree whole heartedly. But I am going to play devils advocate. I don’t think Ben Affleck was outright defending Islam. I believe he thought Mr. Mahr was including all Muslims in what he was saying. While I am appalled by the acts of the extremists and even those who look at women as lesser beings. But not all Muslims can be grouped together. To blame them all is Luke blaming all Germans for the holocaust or all Christians for the Salem witch trials. In all races, religions, theocracies, there will always be varying degrees of belief. It has a lot to do with what we are raised to believe, what environment we are raised in, and how we are treated as we go through life.

    Affleck believed all Muslims were bei my lumped together under the tag of Islam. But not all mulims believe the same way. Theocracies and religions are like paintings, they are open to interpretation. The Qur’an, like the holy bible were written by men. What is written, depends on the writer. Muhammed claimed to be the prophet. He tied himself to that religion, so of course he would love nothing better than the entire world to preach his thinking. It would have made him a God among men. King James ordered a bible written. In the bible gays are condemned to hell. But at the same time, the bible tells us God sent his only son that he may die for us and wash away our sins, and through accepting him as our Lord and savior, we will know the kingdom of heaven. How then, can a gay person be condemned if they accept Jesus Christ, and they accept God into their hearts?

    I agree with your policy, Ms. Morgan, to ban all Muslims on account that you cannot tell who is a threat or not. I agree with Mr. Mahr’s assessment on the Islam issues. I however cannot be quick to judge Mr. Affleck on his opinion, because he agreed that the extremists and the treatment of women and gays and honor killings were disgusting. If that makes me a bad person, it’s ok, because I have Jesus in my heart and I’m just trying to follow his example.

    • Silence is consent…
      How many American Muslims and Muslim organizations have stood up and spoken against or condemned islamic terrorism?

      • Zad Khan

        Many and Many …. But your Fake Media never shows ….You only see hate and violence… You cant blame for one or two sick Muslims the whole 1.2 billions muslims… and many problems create in those muslims countries by US …. Do you even know that or not.. why you all see one side of the page … try to see both sides… then you will understand whats wrong and whats right… i dont even want to go to Fire range and nor want to participate . in these guns violence or shows… i just see you .. that you have so much hate for muslims… You dont know nothing about Islam and nor Quran…. There are two ways of Read Quran … one way is to search only for those words where written harsh words and 2nd where you can understand the whole picture and story… What this Greatest Holy Book all about..

        • joe Broz

          I have read it ans studied it, and the examples above are a mere few. The book is crammed with Muslim nonsense, especially its excuses for murder and torture. When I first read it, I had to put it down for a week at a time, because I couldn’t believe these people rejoiced in such misery and death. If you say, “Iam Muslim, but I don’t believe in jihad and these mindless killings,” you are a liar, because to be a Muslim you must embrace everything in the Qur’an. To fail to do so not only makes you not a Muslim, but is punishable by death. A thousand times, the book says that those who pretend to be Muslim and do not embrace jihad are apostate. There IS no mitigation. Islam is everything in the Qur’an, a handbook for murder.

          • Zad Khan

            You must be Joking right when you say You read Quran. and study it. i still dont believe … and Where you find these things in Quran… Jihad do you even know what Jihad words really means… ? 🙂 You people think you read Quran and understand it. you make me laugh…. the True meaning of Arabic word Jihad means To Strive or to Struggle.. in Quran Jihad doesnt mention only for to fight against thos who took your home… or threaten you … Jihad against Ignorance.. Jihad against Evil in the society .. there are so many types of Jihad that if i start counting you will not be able to read my whole comments.. the simple thing is you have to understand in the context of Quran and every words said in it. to be a perfect muslim you dont have to be in fight against Non muslim… who told you that.. and which muslims believe … Fight against those who threaten you or to kill you.. or taking your home.. is allowed in every single religion or culture… i give u example.. if someone or some country attack on US or your country what you will do. you will fight against that enemy right. You have right to take your home land back. so you call yourself a freedom fighter.. now if a muslims do that.. so you call them a Terrorist and Taliban and Jihadi… i dont understand your people mind.. if you fight for your country you are freedom fighter if muslim fight for their homeland they become a Terrorist and Islam and Quran become a Violence Religion… 1st look to your own shoes and then saying about others… Dont be ignorance… Islam and Quran teach nothing but the most peaceful things.. ISIS and those Radicals is the same peoples and same thinking like you do …. they took verses of Quran out of context and those weak muslims in the their faith … keep following them…

      • Usman Javed

        i’ve recently watched a movie based on true story “The Lone Survivor”…comes to the end of it…the US soldier who was survived in Afghanistan was only because of an Afghan Muslim tribe who stood up against Talibans just to save your ONE SINGLE SOLDIER. How about this version of MUSLIM & ISLAM….??????

        • SeanInNYC

          That was actually more of a “tribe on tribe” action, and certainly not a Muslim being a good Muslim. The tribe that held Mr. Luttrell did so because the tribe that was with al Qaeda was their enemy. That’s the only reason Luttrell was kept safe.

          The leader of that tribe showed humanity in doing what they did, but that actually made him a “bad Muslim” who had to flee his country due to threats from “good Muslims”.

          Thanks, Usman, for pointing out and reminding us of just how horrible the Quran is, and that those who follow it’s message honesty and truly utterly lack any sense of humanity! We’re with you Usman, lets get rid of Islam, if for no other reason to save the Muslims stuck in it’s evil grasp!

          • Usman Javed

            First of all please try to respect other religions and their books, have you ever heard any bad words about Bible from any Muslim because we as Muslims believe in all the Prophets and their books.
            Secondly thanks for showing your ignorance and pointless argument.
            Thirdly i’m happy being a Muslim so keep your advice to yourself. And my Islam teaches me to respect other religions.
            Now as for the tribes, please don’t leave the point as it was about just being a Muslim and teachings of Quran so they as a Muslim proved it they were good to your man, regardless their enmity with other tribe. So don’t try to change the point that why they were good or not, They were Muslims and they did the Good to your man, thats it. There are countless examples of how Muslims are good to non muslims that main stream media never shows you.
            I feel pity for the US soldiers who are fighting the so called war on terror for nothing, that is actually imposed on the world just to make ways clear for One World Order. Please look at the bigger picture.

          • joe Broz

            Islam is not a religion; it is a death cult. Those who have assembled on certain parcels call themselves a country. There are no Muslim countries. 100% of them are theocracies run by Muslim clerics.

        • joe Broz

          Taliban cherry-picks phrases and methods as their guide. Taliban has said over and over that they will rule Afghanistan as soon as the Americans leave. Some Afghans believe we will protect them from this menace, but we won’t. Afghans must protect themselves. There are 70,000 Afghans for every Taliban; they should be able to do the job.

      • joe Broz

        They will NOT. The Qur’an tells them not to, punishable by death. If they have never drawn a sword nor a rifle, if they never intend to, they are apostate and subject to death if they speak out against another Muslim. (9th Sura)

    • Doc

      All who follow the koran are to be lumped into one basket. If you follow islam, you condone murder of those who do not. you condone the sexual abuse of children. you condone women being treated as slaves worth no more than a cow. This is what Moohamid taught.

      • Daniel Davis

        Well sir then we Christians are in trouble. Remember something called the inquisition? It was spearheaded by the Christian church, as were the Salem witch hunts. Both of these instances, men and women were tortured and murdered. And I don’t condone it, as peaceful Muslims who live peacefully within our society do not condone the actions of the radicals.

        • Doc

          We as Christians learned from our history and rebelled against the Church. This is history over two hundred years ago. Muslims, it seems, refuse to modify their cult to allow for those who refuse to follow their perverted, murdering, child molesting prophet. The refusal to modify behavior and understand where the roots of their belief system dooms a “religion”. Christians still adhere to a book which was modified and edited by a British king over 500 years ago to remove any passages that he thought would undermine his reign as king of England. History is to be a learning experience. Muslims don’t want to learn. They revel in their ignorance and their imams fight to keep their followers backwards and ignorant.

        • Andrew

          I guess it is worth asking if Jesus in the Bible condones the so-called tortures and murders in the Inquisition.
          Compare this with the Quran, where there are ample verses condoning violence.
          Day and night really.

  • TexRancher

    DipStick Affleck should live among muslins in a muslim country for two years (hardship tour) like some of us had to! Then he can speak from experience like those of us who have seen them in person! That might open his eyes. Then again he’s among those from La La Land of make believe where the truth means nothing!

    • Ralphf

      Right Trx. The author have actual verses so there is no doubt what is required and taught. Furthermore, it is obvious that the mainstream muslim is a johaddists. The exception to a good muslim is one who is like warm or does not follow the tenants of jihad.
      I can’t understand or condone people who grasp at straws trying to make up excuses for these people.

    Daniel, Affleck was speaking out of ignorance. I normally do not agree with Bill Maher either. Here’s something for you to consider as well. UNtil moderate Muslims rise up AGAINST the radicalsthey are supporting this crap!!! They are afraid to though!! I have Muslim friends that have said so!! Additionally, you must consider this as well, they can say a personal isn’t a good Muslim, but to be or seem critical of certain things can be construded in their faith as condeming their religion which is blastomy and punishable by death. If this were Christians doing this where would you stand then? I’ll bet you and th rest of the world would be demanding the Christian leaders stop this crap!!!

      Maher studies Islam for one purpose. (Everything he does is for one purpose) That purpose is to destroy the Republican party and help pull the United States into socialism. It does not surprise me that Maher vetted Affleck, then burned the midnight oil studying the Qur’an so that he could make Affleck look the fool. This is what he DOES! I promise you, Maher cares about Islam about as much as he cares about my uncle John’s toe fungus. Maher, is the scum of the Earth, the Anti-Christ. As much as I dislike Affleck, I’m amazed that he was sucked into this argument with Maher. And for Jan Morgan, good for you! I hate Muslims without reservation. None.

      • Tomcat01

        Joe B, I didn’t fail and I put my discontent aside. Maher is a socialist and has admitted it. Affleck is a fool as well as the whole Hollywood crowd. Isn’t there enough hate in the world? Hate clouds your ability to see the other’s viewpoint.

    Ben seems to have spent too many nights in a Holiday Inn Express and now he thinks he knows everything. This is another example of someone who has played the part of an intelligent person who now tries to exploit the public’s perception of him as a knowledgeable, worldly authority figure when quite the opposite is true.

    • joe Broz

      And yet, miles higher on the evolutionary scale than Maher.

    Jan You Definitely Needs some help ….. Those verses you Mention here… Tell me something Which Religion is not talk about Punishment for those who gone in wrong path…. ? Every Religion talk about whats right and whats wrong… and for doing Right things you get a right reward and for doing wrong things you get Punishments… So Denying Only one God existing .. You committing the biggest Sin. Most of those verses of Quran you picked up here… Do you even know Whats the whole Story behind those verses or not… Why you People so Blind . Dont pick up any verse out of context … Those verses of Quran Revealed during Time when Mohammad had Issues with those non believers surrounding him…. i will leave the whole story behind … Right now i will pick you.. You want to ban fire range from Muslims … next thing you will pick up gun and fight against … so what i want to say that you want to protect yourself … am i right.. ? Every human being have right to protect their self.

      I feel bad if you truly believe this. The Quran and the Hadiths EXPLICITY state that non Muslims must be killed, enslaved or made to pay the Jiza. There are at least half a dozen passages in the Hadiths of Mohammed instructing his subordinates (and therefore requiring of all Muslims) on the proper way to rape female captives and take them as sex slaves.

      All that “peace” non-sense applies STRICTLY to how one Muslim treats another Muslim. And even then, only the “right” brand of Muslim. Anyone who has stuided the Quran even at a remedial level should know this. Sadly, most Muslims seem to be truly ignorant of what their sacred texts truly say.

      The world would be a far better place if Muslims studied the Quran as carefully as we non-Muslims have learned to do. Apparently, you would be shocked to learn what your religion requires you to do, and how inhumanly “good Muslims” are supposed to behave towards anyone who doesn’t submit to their will (even other Muslims).

      The cat is out of the proverbial bag, my friend. Once people learn that Islam is truly evil, they don’t just “unlearn” or forget it. We know the truth. It’s time you learned as well.

      • joe Broz

        As in the last Hadith, it says Muslim will become “the religion of peace,” only when the entire world is Muslim and all the infidels have been killed.

    • joe Broz

      You need to learn English, Mohammed. You will not win any friends here by supporting Muslim butchers.

  • Usman Javed

    i’ve recently watched a movie based on true story “The Lone Survivor”…comes to the end of it…the US soldier who was survived in Afghanistan was only because of an Afghan Muslim tribe who stood up against Talibans just to save your ONE SINGLE SOLDIER. How about this version of MUSLIM & ISLAM….?????

  • Jason

    all these verses are taken out of context. Under the same reasoning I could cherry pick quotes from the bible, for example, http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/cruelty/long.html and then claim all christians are incestious and violent. All you’re doing is spreading hate, misconstrued information and ignorance.

    • SeanInNYC

      No you can’t. Go ahead and cherry pick them and post them. Then, we can clearly see, when you see the whole context, that tales of violence recounted from the Bible are absolutely nothing like Mohammed’s specific exhortation and requirement that Muslims kill those who refuse to convert or submit to become slaves and/or second class citizens.

      How many times does Jesus go on to say that Christians/Jews should kill all other non-Christians/non-Jews (Jesus was Jewish during his life, after all)? How many times does Jesus instruct his followers on which female non-believers that they have captured may be raped and taken as sex slaves?

      How many times did Jesus himself rape female captives? How many nine year-olds did Jesus take as a wife and basically rape, as Mohammed did (Google Aisha)? Mohammed did all these things, and they are not in dispute: they’re in the Hadiths.

      Jason, your knee-jerk liberalism, like Affleck’s ,is truly embarrassing. Pick up the Hadiths and read them, and you won’t sound like an ignorant, reactionary windbag.

    • joe Broz

      There is no hate in the New Testament, upon which Christianity is based. No hate, no violence. The religion is called “Christianity,” not “Old Testamenity” You could learn to spell incestuous if you intend to condemn people for being Christian. Okay, Yusef?

    • PBBBT

      When’s the last time you heard about a Christian cutting the head off someone and posting it into YouTube?

      It’s fine and dandy to talk about the atrocities of Christianity from 800 years ago. They’re talking about atrocities from people claiming to be Muslims, committed hours ago.

  • Lina

    *yawn* cherry picking verses, again. Here we have another Bill O’reily wannabe who has probably never even picked up the Quran ever. Let me guess, you got those verses off of another islamaphobe website. I can see you’ve even slightly tampered with some of the verses, cause I’m sure you know changing one word in a verse can drastically change the meaning. This is too typical.

    My God, what is with the people on this site. It’s as if Sean Hannity and Michael Savage teamed up to “educate” people on how to mess with the minds of the masses, and you people are his failed students. Affleck isn’t ignorant, it is you who give the word meaning. if you want to give Islam a bad name the least you could do is put some effort into that shabby article. Goodness, did you just come out of the first grade? *sigh* Funny how people must waste their energy on trying to make Muslims look bad, when nobody dares to point out the blatantly violent verses in the Bible or the Torah. Why? Because America has chosen which group of people they feel like messing with for now. It was once the blacks being ridiculed and attacked, now America has found a new toy to break. History will continue to repeat itself until people start thinking for themselves and not be controlled by our corrupted leaders.

    Sorry Jan, but your stupidity and ludicrous statements fail to amuse me.

    • PBBBT

      “Funny how people must waste their energy on trying to make Muslims look bad…”

      You mean people like ISIS?

    • LetsJustVoidTheBillOfRights

      Cherry picking? Over a HUNDRED verses? And we see the HORRENDOUS ATROCITIES that happen ACROSS THE ENTIRE WORLD almost EVERY SINGLE DAY? It is Muslims THEMSELVES who make Muslims look bad. Constantly. Lina… you are a fool, and worse, you think WE are fools. WE are not uneducated cult followers beaten, maimed, denied education and murdered FROM CHILDHOOD into submission. We KNOW what you are. Doesn’t it bother you AT ALL that you’re allowing your STUPID to hang out for EVERYONE to see…?

  • Ri3m4nn

    If you listen to Bill Maher he says over a billion Muslim’s that hold extremist views… and you hold up as not bigotry?

  • higgy01

    Affleck, like most in Hollywood, is an empty headed narcissistic idiot. He seems bright when he makes a movie but someone else tells him exactly what to do and gives him lines to read, much like his hero the president. A movie is made in small manageable segments because the actors are not intelligent enough to learn too many lines at once, then the whole thing is glued together and edited.

  • LetsJustVoidTheBillOfRights

    Affleck is a fool’s fool. Best of the best… I’d SAY he ought to stick to what he does best; acting… But, in addition to NOT being able to THINK… he CAN’T act!

  • ADRoberts

    Make Affleck like the Dixie Chicks. HISTORY. LOL;. Boycott all of his movies. Tom Cruise lost a lot when he did a job on his marriage to Katie Holmes and had to JUMP ship quickly to prevent her from TELLING ALL on him. lol

  • Doc

    The headline should have read “Hollywood’s Embarrassing Display of Ignorance on Islam”. Every time you turn around you hear some actor or actress on TV talking how wonderful and peaceful islam is. This is a reading right out of the left wing liberal handbook. Without a script most of these actors are dumb as bricks.

  • borgteam

    Lets look bottom line… The world has plenty of religions. Getting rid of the religion of Islam would not hurt the world in the slightest. Given that the religion of Islam is a religion largely of hate I see no reason at all to tolerate it. The only difference between what I am suggesting and what the religion of Islam suggests is that I am not proposing that we kill all the Muslim who believe in Islam, only that we do not allow them to practice their religion outside of whatever countries they have taken control over. Let them fester in Iran and Iraq and Saudi Arabia, etc, just don’t let them practice their religion elsewhere. That’s more than the muslims are willing to allow for the rest of the world. Make no mistake, every muslim in the US longs for the day when the only religion in the US is the Muslim religion and they can take over the gvt and force muslim law on all the rest of us.. That’s reason enough for me to label the muslim religion unacceptable and do everything that can be legally done to stop it.
