in response to reader comment: unbeliever's aggression

Well done, sTs.

You found "unbeliever" in the Bible.

But that is not what I asked you to do.

I asked for you to find anywhere in the Bible where it stated "kill the unbeliever" and "the unbeliever is the enemy".

Words are important - and here's a difference between Mohammad and Moses - instruction to Moses was to kill the "Midianites". Instruction to Mohammad was to kill the "unbeliever".

Just think of it - if Allah had seen fit to NAME exactly who these "unbelievers" were, we would not be having trouble today with fourteen-hundred years old instruction.

But then, maybe Allah intended to have "kill the unbeliever" and "the unbeliever is the enemy" stand for all time.

What are your thoughts?
