The Least Peaceful Countries in the World are Muslim


So much for the Religion of Peace trademark.

With so much of strife and violence dominating our world, and the aftermath of the Arab Spring, its violent protests and repressive regimes adding their bit, it is not surprising that world peacefulness declined in 2013. The seventh edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI) showed 5 per cent deterioration in the world’s peacefulness over a six-year period.

Afghanistan, with its two-decade history of conflict, violence and political instability, was at the bottom most rung of the GPI at 162nd place, displacing Somalia and pushing it up to the 161st position. Significantly, the least peaceful regions are Muslim countries — Afghanistan, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Sudan and Pakistan.”

What do most of those countries have in common? Islam. Not just Islam in the abstract, but wars to make Islam into the absolute and uncompromising law of the land.

Pakistan, Afghanistan and Somalia are violent because of brutal conflicts involving the imposition of Islamic law. Syria and Iraq are split by bloody fighting between Sunnis and Shiites over Islamic doctrine.

Sudan is conducting a more conventional genocide with religious and racial elements that unquestionably draw support from Islam. But even if we count Sudan out, the remainder are indisputably wars defined by Islam.

All this is proof again that Islam is a source of violence.

    Actually the one thing these countries have in common (with the exception is Syria) is that the United States is engaged in a war there. I’d say the common denominator is the least peaceful country :)

    • john spielman

      This is just more proof that Islam is a demon inspired religion. The basis for this violent foundation to ALL Islamic countries is their malevolent works righteous theology that allows even encourage violence intimidation even murder of “nonbelievers” ( those from another sect of Islam ie Sunni vs Shia etc). Even Saudi Arabia is violent and totalitarian in its repression all other faiths .

      1400 years of savagery and counting…..

    • Gee

      Oh the United States is engaged in a war with Sudan and Somalia? When did that happen?

      So you might want to rethink your statement considering that over half of the country do not have the US engaged in war or that the war started before the US became in engaged. Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan most certainly were already in full wars before the US became involved.

      • Samuel

        Ok point well taken. But the only country in the world continuously involved in wars for the past 25 years (actually almost continuously since Vietnam) is the United States. Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan were not engaged in a war before US involvement. As far as Sudan and Somalia, the US is indeed engaged in a covert war. I’m not saying the US is wrong, just that if your standard is “engaged in war”, people in glass houses …

        • Gee

          I think a refresher course in history for you might be in order. Pakistan is and has been at war with India since 1948 – guess you think that doesn’t count. Iraq-Iran War, Iraq invasion of Kuwait – guess those don’t count either. The Taliban against the people of Afghanistan does not either – eh? Somalia in an all out civil war BEFORE anybody stepped in and attempted to feed the starving people.

          History is not your forte.

            WW II: USA didn’t get involved until way late. Only used nukes to get Japan to SURRENDER. It took the second goddamn nuke to convince them.
            Greece: Communists
            Korea: Communists
            Vietnam: Communists
            Lebanon: Islamists

            Cambodia: Communists
            El Salvador: Communists
            Grenada: Communists
            Panama: Communists
            Today: Islamists

            Starting to see a pattern here…?

          • glpage

            How many of those wars in which the US was involved did the US actually start? The vast majority of those were started by others and then the US got involved.

    • Raymond_in_DC

      Islam was waging aggressive action, including the seizure of US merchant vessels and the enslavement of those on board, back in the late 18th century, when the US was barely a country and lacked even a rudimentary navy. The “Bey” justified these attacks on the simple fact that we were “infidels” and Islam mandated such attacks.

    • OfficialPro

      Uh, USA is not engaged in a war in the Phillipines, Yemen, Algeria, Gaza, Chechnya, Egypt, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Cyprus, Malaysia, Nigeria, Iran, or Turkey.

  • Roku Fans

    Wow, I’m very surprised by the conclusion. I can understand because of what it looks on the outside and what was widely reported by the media is like that. But, not for those people who really understand Muslims. May need to look at as a whole, in other parts of the country, it is Islam that accepts the violence. But nevertheless, I appreciate your opinion who want to try voicing peace.

    Cameron said: “Islam is a religion observed peacefully …by over a billion people.”
    Peacefully ?
    Not in Pakistan, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Turkey, Cyprus, Malaysia, Nigeria, Darfur, Sudan, Somalia, The Philippines, Iran, Iraq, Gaza, Chechnya, Algeria, Yemen, and so on and so on, burning Christians, killing Buddhists, Hindus and ex-Muslims, beheading priests, stoning adulterers, killing daughters, flogging lovers, chopping off hands, mutilating girls and forcing them into marriage, shooting schoolgirls for being unveiled, slitting captives` throats, raping kuffar women, abducting kuffar girls, taking slaves, plundering kuffar property, soldiers firing upon monks in their monastery, the burning of churches,
    temples, schools and houses, and so on, and all in compliance with Islamic
    texts (see
    Not peacefully.
    Islam is observed by over a billion people. Yes.
    Islam has the very unpeaceful DEATH PENALTY for anyone who ceases to be a muslim. This helps secure observance.

    • Kuffersunite

      No doubt these countries will blame the influence of the western crusaders for their troubles. And our politically correct ‘elite’ will fall for it, yet again.

    • Tara_K

      Murders, rape, incest, violence, conspiracy, cults, torture and all kinds of ill happen daily by the hands of Americans too. Blame the person not his/her religion.

  • Kuffersunite

    …”Fight them (unbelievers) until persecution is no more and religion (worldwide) is for Allah”. Quran 8.39.
    In other words Muslims must fight the aggression of unbelief until they rule over the entire world. Who among you can argue against their god.

  • MacDaddy12345

    As I recall there area around 160 verses in the Quran that calls for killing unbelievers – hardly a religion of peace..

    • Rayyan Salim

      MacDaddy12345 I want you to show me one of that Verse in The Holy Quran I’ll accept your religion immediately If you are right….

      • MacDaddy12345

        “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers.” Quran 8:12

        “When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” Quran 9:5

        Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. – 2:191

        When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens. – 47:4

        Qur’an 4:91- If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them. Against such you are given clear warrant

        Here is just a few and I am sure your are goning to say<"oh but you don't speak arabic so you don't understand what was really said" Bull Manure, too many religions take that angle, it was in Imam that gave those to me, I am sure he read arabic. No Problem, you won't have to be Christian, my religion is Deism, we have no mosques/churches/temples, no congregations, no "holy" scriptures (something we believe has caused the most trouble in this world) and we do not pray. We worship the Creator by observing his wonder creations and laugh at the idiocy of the organized religions such as Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. Wo welcome to Deism, my brother is the honoring of Creation.

          Actually you are incorrect. These verses are taken out of context and you have not completed them. This is regarding breaking a treaty between two countries. Especially when it has do to with maintaining peace from both sides.

    John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”

    John 15:26 “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me”

    John 14:26 “But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

    John 16:7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.”

The Comforter is the Holy Spirit, Jesus was not talking about any human being, like you and me, Jesus was speaking of the Holy Espirtio of God dwell in our hearts. Give a chance to your brain and then to your heart. Forgive me, but you’ll thank me. you need read the Gospel of John carefully whit fear. DO YOU believe in the Bible, i think not… right?????

        Wow, talk about a horrible, egregious misrepresentation of the Bible. Your interpretation, if it can even be called that, is in no way what the Apostle John was speaking about, despite the garbage they taught you in your Mosque.

    • belek

      Muslims are experts deceive and misrepresent the Word of God, so to keep the people blind under a yoke that you guys are even leaders do not want to carry. I also can get text of Al Koran and say that Muhammad worshiped Budda … and many Muslims will believe hahahhahahah …

  • mohammad

    and in most countries you have said, america has invaded. Do some proper research and get to the bottom of why they are un peaceful. Afghanistan was a very peaceful country and was building very fast until everything was planed to take the countries wealth, as the same with the other countries. Don’t go believe bulls*it that the news says and do your own research. Listen to what the american soldiers have to say aka the Iraq Veterans against the war. May god show our brothers and sister in the right path to know the truth of the last day.

  • greygandalf

    Ban the Koran , NOW. Or they will take over. That is because they stop at nothing. Killing daughters, sons , everyone. Other peoples lives are meaningless to them. Yet they believe they are good Muslims in all this killing. I find it difficult to believe that anyone else find it good.

    • Kuffersunite

      They decieve, because they worship the ‘Great Deciever’ himself. The Master of all Lies. They look but cannot see, they listen but cannot hear. They have closed their hearts and their minds to the ‘Truth’.
      Hatred, Violence and Death of their fellow Man is proof positive of this culture and Cult of Death. How many more innocents must suffer and die before the world finally turns against them?

  • Guest


  • Rayyan Salim

    Mr Michael Copeland i doubt you never read The Holy Quran Because Killing innocents is not in our religion There is a verse in The Holy Quran if you kill one human you kill the whole man kind And who ever do so is not from us

  • jack sprat

    why cn’t they get to heaven without causing all this strife – is God so selfish or is man just plain stupid

  • jack sprat

    maybe they are worshipping the Devil and not God ? A lot of Muslim teaching are about loving God and their fellow man etc so why re they going so off the track ?

  • jack sprat

    It was started almost the same time as Christianity maybe by the antichrist to conteract Christianity . It actually has a lot of similarities to Christianity yet It has such an evil effect on humanity . One can say that of all the evils faced by humanity such as malnutrition , desease , poverty, unemployment this is probably the biggest reason why the world is not far better off. Just think of all the money being wasted on guns etc . How many people are being maimed having their lives ruined by the crazy Muslim quest of getting to “Heaven”. They must think God is really stupid if he would ignore what they are doing. The most likely senario is they want to go “Hell” so they can be with their Master the devil.

    You are quibbling about one of at least 100 verse…and even if it iz out of context it show the violent nature of Islam and its adherents
