Differences between Islam and other two Abrahamic religions.

Reader comment on item: The Worst Book of 2007?

Submitted by Janusz Kowalik (United States), Oct 28, 2007 at 13:46

It is true that reading Koran and Old Testament we can see not too many differences. Both are describing many horrific events and express brutality that was common in the times of the books creation.The important difference between Islam and other two religions is their practical implementations and historical changes that took place in the Jewish and Christian cultures.

Islam is a frozen ideology that so far resists any significant modification and adjustment to the modern world of morality, human rights and social philosophy. Judaism and Christianity, after many tremors and and excesses, have changed and do not in principle stick to its primitive ideas rooted in barbaric and primitive societies of the remote past. In addition it is essential to consider how Islam is practised, not what is written in the Koran, which many Muslims do not know or know superficially.
