Lagu Dream Theater Mengkritik Islam Part 3


The song’s middle eastern feel and continuous references to religious fundamentalism (which Islam is often guilty of) gave me the impression that the song is talking about extremists in Islam, even though there are extremists in all religions.
Here a couple of sentences that might as well point at Islamic culture:

“Listen when the prophet = (Mohammed)
Speaks to you
Killing in the name of God = (Mohammed killed 600-900 men during his lifetime, in the name of God/AllaH)

“Passion
Twisting faith into violence
In the name of God” = (Muslim extremists claim they kill in the name of Allah ,and that violence is allowed in their faith).

“they know no other
Life but this
From the cradle
They are claimed ” = (Child born to a muslim family are automatically muslim and can’t abbandon Islam ,for they would be killed)

“Forty sons and daughters
Un-consenting plural wives
Perversions
In the name of God ” = (multi-marriages are allowed in Islamic culture)

Justifying violence
Citing from the Holy Book
Teaching hatred
In the name of God = ( this one is clear by itself. Not only does the Quran contain verses that incite violence and hatred, but those are taken seriously by good muslims)
