This morning Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, while giving a press conference about the Murder of an American Ambassador and 3 other Americans at the Embassy in Libya, said something that has been said by nearly every President, Vice President, Secretary of State or any other American leaders and government officials when faced with war or an act of war upon American’s ‘In the name of God’,
Those who act with violence in the name of God are not religious; this is not Islam or the word of Muhammad, or any other God etc. etc.
Yes they are and yes it is. Muslim’s who kill in the name of Muhammad are acting as true Muslim’s.
Catholic’s who kill in the name of God are acting as true Catholic’s.
Protestants who kill in the name of God are acting as true Protestants.
They are all carrying out God’s will. They are doing as their God has told them.
Since the day the Catholic Church came to be they have been killing those who were blasphemers or heretical. Today, still Protestants and Catholic are killing each other over religion. Muslims, Jews and Christians alike all believe in the same God. They all believe they are descendants of Abraham. Yet kill each other in that same God’s name, because God tells them to. God demands the death of those who oppose him, of those who do not obey him. The Wrath of God remember?

Exodus 17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 17:14 And the Lord said unto Moses, write this for a memorial in a book and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua; for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 17:15 And Moses built an altar and called the name of it Jehovahnissi 17:16 For he said, because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

From The Holy Quran
Sura IV Nissaa Section 10:74 Let those fight in the cause of God who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of God, whether he is slain or gets victory soon shall we give him a reward of great value. 10:75 And why should ye not fight in the cause of God and of those who being weak, are ill-treated and oppressed? Men, women, and children, whose cry is “Our Lord, rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee One who will protect; and raise for us from Thee One who will help” 10:76 Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. So fight ye against the friends of Satan; feeble indeed in the cunning or Satan.
Section 11:77 Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands from fight but establish regular prayers and spend in regular Charity? When at length the order for fighting was issued to them, behold a section of them feared men as or even more than they should have feared God. they said “Our Lord why hast thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not grant us respite to our natural term, near enough?” Say: “Short is the enjoyment of this world; the hereafter is the best for those who do right; never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least” 11:78 “Wherever ye are, death will find you out even if ye are in towers built up strong and high”
Section 11:83 When there comes to them some matter touching Public safety or fear, they divulge it. If they had only referred it to the Apostle or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have tested it from them direct. Were it not for the Grace and mercy of God unto you, all but a few of you would have fallen into the clutches of Satan. 11:84 then fight in God’s cause. Thou art held responsible only for thyself and rouse the believers. It may be that God will restrain the fury of the unbelievers; for God is the strongest in might and in punishment.
Section 12:88 why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites? god hath upset them for their evil deeds. Would ye guide those whom God hath thrown out of the way? for those whom God hath thrown out of the way, never shalt thou find the way. 12:89 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 God (from what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize the and slay them wherever ye find them; and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks. 12:90 Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty of peace or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting their own People. If God had pleased, he could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you; therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and instead send you guarantees of peace, ten God hath opened no way for you to war against them. 12:91 Others you will find that wish to gain your confidence as well as that of their people; every time they are sent back to temptation, they succumb therto; if they withdraw no from you nor give you guarantees of peace besides restraining their hands, seize them and slay them wherever ye get them; in their case we have provided you with a clear argument against them.
