in response to reader comment: sTs has a "mac daddy" lie this time

It is a translation mistake - I don't like the translation of Yousuf Ali anyway

looking at the Arabic script, I can assure you that the words Torah and Bible are mentioned and you can replace the law and gospel with these two words (The Torah and the Bible)

The Quran says that this covenant is also in the torah and the bible (the Jews and the Christians) so I believe the Quran and God. and I believe He gave commands to kill the enemies.

If it was not for this promise to fight the unbelievers who fight you - they will not have the heart to fight. it is a way to strengthen their hearts in the fighting, and tha tis why Islam defeated the most powerful empires at that time.

The jews are killing everyday in Palestine - the Christians are killing every day in Iraq and Afghanistan and support the Jews killing in Plaestine and in Lebanon, they like to see the blood spilled out.

There is a difference in killing in self defense or killing an innocent

If you kill an innocent as if you killed the whole world, but killing your enemy in fighting is different. so the bibleis not talking about killing the enemy , he is talking about killing the innocent.

as for the Verse -4:101 why you have not shown the whole verse just the last part. The meaning will completely change when you show the whole verse. giving teaching instructions what to do in case they face an enemy.

who is lying and being deceitful now ?
