Abuhajira - Use the Quran correctly!

in response to reader comment: Koran 'instructed' to kill non-moslem or not aren't we?

Don't cherry pick and take out of context! We are not all ignorant or unread. The rest of the verse reads -

"And our messenger has certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them after that, throughout the land, were transgressors." AND the very next verse 5:33 reads -

"Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and his Messenger and strive upon earth to cause corruption is none but they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they shall be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment. "

It is very obvious that the majority of Muslims do not or cannot read their Qurans, I know there is a major problem with illiteracy in Islamic lands but many literate Christians and secular people can and do read the verses of the Quran. Compared to the Bible and the teaching of love and freedom preached by Jesus Christ all that you seem to be taught is fear, hate and opression. We want no part of your stone age beliefs and tenets - to most of us they are repulsive in these days of democracy and justice.

I could cite many more verses that instruct Islam to eradicate all non-muslims but there are none so blind as those that do not want to see. But beware - the light is dawning for most of the non-believers.

Islam is it's own worst enemy and will ultimately destroy itself as the world becomes more educated.
