To Ahmedzafire: Which holy book do terrorists recite from while beheading innocent people?

Ahmed, you wrote to susan:
>>(your koran clearly pushes terrorism as the preferrable way of dealing with things) and where do you read this in the Koran?<<
Does it not now? Which version of the Koran are your reading Ahmad? Just in case your eyes glaze over when the word terror occurs in the Koran I have underlined them for your.
8:12 YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers…
003.151 : Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah…(joining companions with Allah is such a big crime?)
033.026 : And those of the People of the Book who aided them - Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts. (So that) some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners.
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand….
>>Nothing in the Koran say anything about being terrors blowing up innocent people,women and children.<<
17.16-17 YUSUFALI: When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly. How many generations have We destroyed after Noah? and enough is thy Lord to note and see the sins of His servants. (also read 22:45, 28:58, 36:31, 38:3)
Look at the glee with which Allah says he went about destroying whole towns and generations. Were the people terrorized when allah did that. Since whole towns were involved innocent people including children and women would have perished.
They did not have bombs in those days so Muslims could not do any blowing up. But read 33:26 again. It is talking about the Banu Quraiza incident. And here is Allah plainly admitting that prisoners were taken. If you know your history those prisoners were women and children (all the men having been beheaded). Those women and children were sold into slavery, a worse fate than being blown up.
>>The Koran teaches peace to all of G-d creations. So before you go making false quotes i think you should do your research.<<
Okay, let us do some research. Ahmad. By casting terror into the hearts of his creatures and destroying people wholesale is the Koran teaching peace to all of god's creations?? Ahmad you ask some search be done about Islam. Before you ask us to do that search, look into any English dictionary for the meaning of the word ‘peace'.
9:29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day…
9:111..Thus, they fight in the cause of god, willing to kill and get killed…
This is Allah teaching peace to all His creations. So are Muslims being asked to go and fight trees, rocks and other inanimate objects?? Before your pull out your context blunderbuss to shoot me down I urge you to read the whole of Surah 9 and refute me.
>>But if you going to make judgment on me because of what you think via,media,word of mouth etc. Then all you are doing is hurting the rest of th world. Even if you don't know for very cause there is a reaction.<<
The only media we need to make a judgment is the Koran and the Sunnah. And you saw in those verses what followers of Allah are being asked to do. You rightly say that for every action there will be a reaction. Since the rest of the world does not believe in Allah the Koran is asking Muslims to go and fight them. What you see is the rest of the world reacting (by asking for a ban on the Koran) to the Muslims who follow some of the teachings of the Koran.
I disagree with placing a ban on the Koran as it is the best resource we have to show Muslims what it is that they really believe.
