Violence=Strength=Good for Islamic 'Dawa'? -PART 2

Read yesterday's post to see part 1 of this conversation with a Muslim about all the so-called movie protests and murders going on in the Islamic world. 
 Dear Muslim Friend, 

Yes, I know this man (Muhammad).

Do you think it's OK to kill others in defense of his honor, though?

MUSLIM RESPONSE:
Do you think it's ok to kill civilians by Drones sitting thousands of miles away?


MY RESPONSE:

I do not work or live for the government of this country. But I can tell you this: those drones are not killing people because they made an 'offensive movie'. 

I notice you did not answer. instead, you changed the subject to the US Military.Why not focus on the question about Islam: is it a good thing to kill anyone who says something rude or crude about Mohammad?

MUSLIM RESPONSE:
Your problem is not the death of a diplomat, your problem is Islam, Muslim, and Muhammad. The one who made the movie is one amongst you, so you have deep problem. Qur'an exposes disease of your heart "O you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you [any] ruin. They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason." 3:118

So when you say "But I can tell you this: those drones are not killing people because they made an 'offensive movie'."
That reminds me of this verse from Quran: "If good touches you, it distresses them; but if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allah , their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do." 3:120

Is it a good thing to kill anyone who says something rude or crude about Capitalism, America, Zionism, Israel and NATO? or if someone call for Khilafah? or Islam?
or Shariah?

MY RESPONSE:
No, it is not good to kill anyone who says something bad about any of those things you mentioned. I am a Christian and believe open debate, not murder, is the godly way to silence critics. I don't have a strong interest in defending any of those things you mentioned. 

Here is what I am commanded to do in 1 Peter 3:15: "in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect."

The way Christians make a defense is with their lips, as we uphold the truthfulness of Jesus as Lord. We also show who Jesus is to the world by our life, our actions. Jesus says this in John 13:35: "By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” 

My problem with Islam is not the death of one diplomat per se, the problem with Islam is much bigger than that: your false religion teaches you to break all ten of the Ten Commandments in some way or another. Murder is one such example.

As far as the one who made the movie being amongst us ... did anyone die in the making of that movie? No! But are people dying because of the unholy reaction by Muslims worldwide? Yes! So which one is a legitimate problem? Freedom of speech? or murder? It seems your ummah is the one with the real issue. Why? Not only does it foster murderers, it protects and defends them - as you are doing now.

So, I ask you again: is it moral to kill someone when they say something that is not nice about Muhammad?

Please answer, my friend.

Tomorrow I will post the final part of our dialogue ...
