Oh, hi there, Jo,

So, Safi visits your campus and you have him for a couple of weeks.

Did you do your job and find common ground with Islam? Did you read any Islamic text?

'I have been made victorious with terror'

so says Muhammad according to Bukhari (Vol. 4, Book 52, Number 220).

"On the day of the battle of Uhud, a man came to the Prophet and said, 'Can you tell me where I will be if I should get martyred?' The Prophet replied, 'In Paradise.' The man threw away some dates he was carrying in his hand, and fought till he was martyred"

so says Muhammad according to Bukhari (Volume 5, Book 59, Number 377).

'Kill any Jew that falls into your power.'"

So says Muhammad as recorded by his earliest biographers, Ibn Ishaq and Ibn Sa'd.

If you are going to praise Prof Omid Safi, then why not take a look at what others think about his soft words > http://www.examiner.com/a-779895~Winfield_Myers__Safi_s_soft_words_are_front_for_radical_jihadists.html

Do you also believe strapping children and turning them into human bombs is justified?
