There is no creation seen by destruction,
no peace comes from beheading dissent…
no signs of merciful belief or of love at all
and the followers of this God do so resent
the mere thought of being wrong is wrong,
when the sun descends… man’s own deceit
is not sooner considered a deception but
simply a tool, not pride or even left conceit,
so where then is the faith in the God of love…
if not seen on a flag named for ‘punishment,’
the rough treatment inflicted as retribution
for failing to believe the same is judgement?
Let there be no doubt… people are killing in the confidence and trust it is for the ‘right reason.’ When love is not empowered… and jealousy for supremacy is the goal (the end game… eschatology) and declared to be sound [by men] then love is not the expression sought after. Should my own faith come in to question (then) is when I’ll stand up and forfeit what we have all been given (all humanity)- life itself. When hate for life is palmed off as worthy of our choice to follow through on its precepts… respect for life will become null and void. When no arbiter of justice resides among mankind itself… injustice will proceed to fill the vacuum without remorse.
Please let it be understood, a good Muslim understands Muhammad commanded,”No change can there be in the words of Allah,” and,”Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words”; which comes from Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28, 29. Also, in North Eastern Iran today (from the region named Khorasan) … the ‘Blag flag‘ is also seen and understood (from out of the activities directly attributed to Muhammad himself) as a historic proclamation of ‘punishment’ coming- this is the goal and has been all along. What follows (found in this link is but a snap-shot into this viewpoint) is from end times prophecy (Eschatology) of Islam.

“We are living in the time of global Jihad, when the war now is not about countries fighting each other for land, but for dominance of ideas (our battle is to make the Truth superior over falsehood).”
Surah 5:44 “Surely We revealed the Taurat (Torah/Bible Old Testament) in which was guidance and light”, with it the prophets who submitted themselves…
Surah 29:46 “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say,”We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
[It is due to the contradiction of understanding coming from this statement (above) that makes the declaration a ‘lynchpin’ of either truth or not! To intimate (suggest/imply/declare) being led to go against Israel and the Hebrew God that they are the same God… one can see clearly this is not the case. Even Abraham believed God (the Hebrew God) and was counted as being righteous.]
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

In our image, after our likeness–This was a peculiar distinction, the value attached to which appears in the words being twice mentioned. And in what did this image of God consist? Not in the erect form or features of man, not in his intellect, for the devil and his angels are, in this respect, far superior; not in his immortality, for he has not, like God, a past as well as a future eternity of being; but in the moral dispositions of his soul, commonly called original righteousness (Ecclesiastes 7:29). As the new creation is only a restoration of this image, the history of the one throws light on the other; and we are informed that it is renewed after the image of God in knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness (Colossians 3:10, Ephesians 4:24).
Galatians 3:28 KJV
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
2 Chronicles 14:11 KJV
11 And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.
Image from here and another posting to read on ‘Monotheism’ is found here, for a clear view to the actual differences between what many might consider ‘one God.’ A difference between views: Christian- what I believe I’ll die for… and Muslim- what I believe you’ll die for! Both of these actions (today) are called martyrdom [a display of feigned or exaggerated suffering to obtain sympathy or admiration… a current definition].
