伊斯蘭教真的很暴力嗎?

林中斌  聯合報 2015.02.12

 
自從1970年代中期,我便對伊斯蘭 (回教) 好奇。最近因為世界面臨伊斯蘭暴力的困境,我更感到憂心。這篇1,200字的短文花了我一個月構思 (因為資料太多如何篩選是問題),又花了三天撰寫,二月九日周一投寄之後,又在兩天內不斷麻煩編輯修改五次。於二月十二日周四登出。
可蘭經最令我欣賞的是這節:「當你聽到有人否定或嘲笑真主的話,不要跟他們坐在一起,一直到他們改變話題,否則你會落得跟他們一樣。」。
第一,不要跟批評汙衊你信仰的人爭辯。第二,一旦對方改變話題,依然跟他交往。不要斷絕往來。

Islam has interested me since the mi-1970s. Recently, it has concerned me deeply because of the current impasse the world is facing. It took me a month to mentally design the outline of this oped. It then took me three days to write these 1,200 Chinese characters. After submitting on Monday February 9, I kept bothering the editor five times until last night 20:30 Wednesday February 11. It was printed this morning.

Conflict and Ego
David Brooks , International New York Times , FEB. 6, 2015

作者是紐約時報名專欄作家。他每次上網看讀者對他評論的反應,總是讀到惡毒、污辱的批評。他發現唯一能做的是遵循 古訓:「愛你的敵人。」然後反而可以從批評中學到有益的事物。
他說:人能靜心,才能清楚看世界,才能主導情勢。 也就是要從有敵意的對方的遊戲中跳出來。避免我們自己也陷落到對方的格局和水平。

How to deal with insults? “The best way is to respond is to quiet our disgust and guiet our instincts. It is to step out of their game. It is to reassert the primacy of our game.”

 Why is terror Islamist?
 
柏克萊大學政治系教授 費施研究結果 :"回教國家平均10萬人中每年有2.4件謀殺案,非回教國家平均10萬人中每年有7.5件謀殺案。
目前,基督教國家人口占全世界1/3, 擁有全世界2/3的財產,和9/10的軍力。 回教徒在政治上所受的挫折和羞辱或可解釋它們的恐怖活動。"

 
林中斌 簡譯 2015.2.4
 
"Muslim countries average 2.4 murders per annum per 100,000 people, compared to 7.5 in non-Muslim countries.
 
 And the frustration and humiliation that Muslims now feel as a result can help explain terrorism.
 
Currently, people in Christian countries make up one-third of the world’s population, while holding two-thirds of its wealth and nine-tenths of its military might." (UC Berkeley professor M. Steven Fish, Washington Post Jan 27, 2015)
