This research is from 2005, but has not been mentioned on Jihad Watch and only rarely in English in general. It might give those experts who are now struggling to find the motives of the Boston jihadists and the “Canadian” train terrorists a hint. From JyllandsPosten, “Islam is the most violent religion“:
The religious texts of Islam call upon its followers to commit acts of terror and violence to a much higher degree than any other religion, concludes Tina Magaard, who graduated from the Sorbonne in Paris as a PhD in Textual Analysis and Intercultural Communication, after a three-year research project that compared the basic texts from 10 religions.
“The texts in Islam are clearly distinct from the other religious texts, as they to a much higher degree call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror. This has long been a taboo in Islam research, but it is a fact we have to acknowledge,” says Tina Magaard.
Furthermore, the Qur’an contains hundreds of calls to fight against followers of other faiths.
“If it is true that many Muslims view the Qur’an as God’s own words that can not be interpreted or rephrased, we have a problem.”
