Why you show a SWORD in your flag and simultaneously call Islam “A Religion of Peace”?
March 31, 2010
The flag of Saudi Arabia has a green field with large white Arabic writing above a white Horizontal sword.
The Arabic in the flag is representing the respectable Islamic statement of faith which translates as “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet.”
The country is popularly known as “The Land of the Two Holy Mosques” in reference to Makkah and Medina, the two holiest places in Islam.
Now the question is what does this sword in the flag indicates?
Is this implying the notion: Islam spread by the sword?
How the Muslims should defend their claim that Islam is the religion of peace in the light of the flag of the country that is widely considered to be the “Fort of Islam”?
What else is this sword representing?
