I literally grew up with muslims during my childhood years and our family were almost slaughtered by them out of no reason on a clear sunny day. Our village sat just across from theirs by the river. We were bombarded with their loud islamic call to prayer known as adhān five times a day as early as 5 a.m. Funny thing is, I never heard any people in our village complained about it. I guess it was accepted as part of our daily life that we just got on with our life that most had to get up very early to go to work and struggled through long hours to put food on the table.
I know enough to tell you that when muslims are secular, they can be friendly to get along. And when muslims are devout, they are hateful towards the infidels and can be very dangerous when things donít go their way. Secular muslims maybe secular now, but there is no guarantee that they will always remain secular and not become devout when the wind blows in different direction. In fact, the chances for them to turn devout and therefore violent is very high. Itís only a matter of time and circumstance.
And when violence does hit, you donít even know what or how it happens. Itís like living with a silent lethal volcano brewing within its belly about to explode and yet it shows no sign of what is about to come your way. And if you watch the islamic violence worldwide, you would notice that in most cases they loved to cause violent mayhem on Friday after their mosque prayers or on their islamic holy day.
During the Friday or islamic holy day of their intended violence, all imams had to do is to quote the violent verses from the quran and the ahadith pertaining to what their prophet did to the infidels and that will definitely incite their followers into a violent frenzy.
Even during mohammedís days, his followers were told that it is the highest virtue for muslims to kill and be killed for the cause of allah against the infidels. Just like the secular muslims of today, in mohammadís days there were also secular muslims who disliked fighting or war, but mohammed told them that fighting is prescribed for them by allah. He told them that they might feel fighting and killing another group of people was wrong but allah always know what is better for them. Those muslims who still refused to fight in islamic war of terror were condemned by mohammed as hypocites and renegades. According to mohammadís edict, the penalty for renegade or apostate is death. So here you go, devoutness of a muslim certainly has literally correlation with his/her propensity to commit violence by the command of allah in quran and by the example of mohammed in the ahadith.
