June 5, 2016 marked the beginning of the month of Ramadan, the Islamic holiday is observed worldwide as a month of fasting. Followers of the Qur’an fast during the day, then eat at night, for a whole month, to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran given to Muhammad. It is emphasized by leaders as a time of peace and forgiveness for all Islamists. However, as the Religion of Peace website shows, Ramadan is one of the most deadly months of the year.
Ramadan is half-way through. As of day 16 of the month, 938 people have been killed in 122 Islamic attacks.
The editors of the site write:
“Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is ‘Islamophobia.’ We put that narrative to the test each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks, categorized by motive.”
They list “atrocities of the week” every week. Those that have occurred only over the last five days include:
- Four people stoned to death for committing adultery,
- Six killed by a suicide car bomber,
- ISIS RPG kills over 24 civilians,
- Motorcycle bomb kills 10 people at a market,
- Suicide bomber kills 14 people riding a bus,
- Bombing and assassination kills 8 people.
The Religion of Peace website “is a non-partisan, fact-based site that examines the ideological threat that Islam poses to human dignity and freedom.”
Its numerous resources evidence that Islam is anything but “peaceful.”
