Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
In Revelation 13 we see a beast rise and all who do not worship the beast are to be killed. In Revelation 20 we see how they are killed... they are beheaded. Islam's official stance is that you are to embrace Islam or you are to die and the preferred method of killing by the Islamic religion of peace is beheading. How ironic it is that the beast of Revelation and the Islam religion are identical. Not ironic really, but rather it is what it is. Islam is the beast of Revelation.
Christ teaches us (Christians) to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us...
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
while Muhammad teaches his followers (Muslims) to hate their enemies and kill them wherever they find them...
[2.190] And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits.
[2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.
[2.192] But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
[2.193] And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.
If you do not embrace Islam you are considered an enemy fighting against Islam and according to the Quran you are to be killed. So no, despite the claims made by Muslims, Islam is not the religion of peace as they claim it to be. Islam is the beast of Revelation that beheads people for not embracing their religion that one day will take over the world as prophesied in the book of Revelation.
