All the above murderous attacks were committed according to the Islamic doctrine of jihad, which is comprised of both the Quran's commands and Muhammad's example.
The commands of Allah from the Quran (supposed to be his literal words, binding for all time):
Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth [i.e. Islam] among the people of the Book [Jews and Christians], until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (9:29)
Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. (9:5)
I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes. (8:12)
So, when you meet those who disbelieve, smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly on them... Thus you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam. (47:4)
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the enemies of Allah and your enemies. (Sura 8:60)
The "steeds of war" mentioned above is readily adapted to "vehicular jihad" as seen in so many attacks in Europe recently.
Muslims are instructed to kill not only by the literal words of Allah in the Quran, but by Muhammad's example and commands:
Then they [the Jewish tribe of Qurayza] surrendered, and the apostle [Muhammad] confined them in Medina... Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches...There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900... This went on until the Apostle made an end of them. (Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, trans. by A. Guillaume, New York, 1980, pp 463-464)
Allah’s Messenger said: “I have been ordered [by Allah] to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah... so if they perform all that, then they save their lives and property from me.” (Hadith from Sahih Bukhari, 1:2:25, also Sahih Muslim, 1:10:29-35)
So what does all this mean? The main reason for this blog to document all this bloodshed by Muslims is to call us all to repentance. Islam's war against the world is still escalating, and will continue to get worse and worse, in Europe, America, and wherever Muslims are growing in numbers.
Message to Christians: Islam is a false religion, with a false demon-god and false prophet. It is a "forerunner of the Antichrist" as St John of Damascus stated. Therefore, do not accept the "Same God" lie which so many deluded Christians keep repeating out of ignorance and false charity. They are committing apostasy and blaspheming our blessed Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Trinity. Repent and be faithful to Jesus Christ and His Church to the end, and prepare for martyrdom.
Message to Muslims: You are in danger of eternal hellfire, if you persist in following your false god and prophet which commands such hatred and killing to spread your diabolical religion. You know in your hearts you are stuck in a false religion ruled by satan. Repent now and turn to Jesus Christ in the Orthodox Church. that you may become a child of the True God and inherit eternal life. We are waiting to embrace you with open arms!
