    The Dome of the Rock, which sits upon the temple mount in Jerusalem, is the third holiest site in all of Islam, after mecca and medina.
    It goes farther than just a holy site --- they believe they must defeat the Jews (and all "infidels") in order to bring about the end of times.

    To say that ISIL isn't Islamic is just stupid. Of course they are. There are fanatical arms of every religion.
    Clearly. Would you consider the Pope a fanatical form of Catholicism?

    Was the German Democratic Republic (East Gremany) democratic?

    Check out the poll results. 93% can see members of Islamic State are Islamic. What's so funny is their members admit they are ardent followers of Islam, even though a vast minority here can't because Obama said they aren't Islamic. Ever heard of Caliphate? That's what they subscribe to. In other words, they want you dead because you don't practice their religion.

    The Obama force is strong in the 7% deniers here.

    Still misrepresenting Obama's intent. Do you think Obama mistook IS for Hindus or Hari Krishna's?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Of course IS are Islamic. The Qur'an is full of unspecific edicts that people can interpret according to their disposition. If you ask the IS to support their actions with Islamic scripture, they'll do it in a jiffy. It's all there, it's just that the saner Muslims read it sanely.

    This seems odd.

    If the book they follow says "kill infidels" how could they be perverting it?

    Maybe the peaceful ones just don't follow their book so closely.

    Again if the book says to kill who they are killing, how can you call them extremists?

    So, I take it you have read the Quran know it well enough to know the context of this? If so, who am I to argue as I have not. I have only listened to Muslims tell (presumably people that study the Quran) tell us this is not what it says. If you know, than I stand in respect.

    My guess is you are operating for hearsay, which is always dangerous. As a matter of illustration, the Bible tells us to stone (death by torture) idolators, adulterers and rebellious children. Are Christians that do stone to death their rebellious children perverting it?

    If you don't know your Bible, you might draw that conclusion and or take it out of context to make your point about Christians being barbaric murderers.....
