I have discovered that there are indeed Koran Concordances. However they are not easily found at your local bookstore. I will order one online. In the mean time, I will use search engines to locate where certain topical words are found in the Koran. My first search was simply “Jihad and the Koran”. My goal was to locate the verses and actually find them in the Koran. The first chapter and verse I picked from my online search was K 9:005. It simply means Chapter 9 verse 5, just like the Bible’s numbering system.
K 9:005 ” When the forbidden months are over, wherever you encounter the idolaters, kill them, seize them, besiege them, wait for them at every lookout post; but if they turn (to God), maintain the prayer, and pay the prescribed alms, let them go on their way, for God is most forgiving and merciful.”
There are 164 Jihad verses in the Koran. (http://www.answering-islam.org/Quran/Themes/jihad_passages.html#Excerpts) After reading everyone of them I must admit there are some that make it very clear Jihad is required against all non believers. However there are many verses that seem more vague in purpose and context.
It is remarkably clear to me after this first topical search that Islam is a warrior religion. To be honest with you that warrior mentality stimulates my fighter instincts and emotions. I was shocked how I was drawn by the Kick Ass mentality of the verses. Only one problem, the reason for the kick ass mentality was because the other guy doesn’t believe in the religion of Islam. It would be easy to mix a recipe of Jihadist feelings in young men who grow up knowing nothing but the Koran, Islam and Jihad. Most young men have the kick ass warrior jean in them. Mix that with the Islam religion from birth and the Koran could very easily create young Jihadist with nothing to lose and seven virgins in heaven to gain. (the seven virgin thing will be another topical study).
Just imagine you are a young man growing up in what ever Muslim country. You are fed a steady diet of religion that encourages you to kick (kill) some ass and guarantees seven virgins in the after life. Then, your sages set before you perfect targets of non believers. It doesn’t take much imagination to figure out why millions of young Muslim men are more than willing to take out a few non believing Americans with suicide belts. You get your virgin girls, your a hero to all your family and friends, and you get the thrill of the hunt. I get it.
