It seems Keith Williams comments have all the hallmarks of starry eyed convert who has 'fallen in love' with a counterfeit force, the occupying army. His comments are either self delusional or that of a propoganderist. His 'peace talk' is the opposite of what we all see is the Islamist 'walk'. His comments are akin to Robert Mugabe declaring "There is no cholera in Wimbabwe" as swarms die or desert Zimbabwe to avoid death. Sadly Muslim don't have this option - if they desert or convert they are killed or threatend with death. I think Keith needs to get an unedited copy of the Koran or read it through cover to cover.

To understand the true nature of his 'beloved Islam', Keith has to look no further than the life of his leader/ deceiver Mohammad, have an honest read of ALL of the Koran and have a passing understanding of the Law of Abrogation which states that earlier pronouncements in the Koran are superceded or 'abrogated' by the latter occurring texts. In other words the sweetness and light statements made by Mohammad were from his relatively peaceful phase in Mecca before his numbers grew, he was thrown out of town and went to Medina where his numbers grew and at this point he began to use force, violence and war to enforce Islamic beliefs and coerce potential 'converts'.

As Christains, we follow the example of Jesus who was the Good Shepherd who lay down His life for His sheep, so Mohammads latter years example as a warrior and religious warlord is also the example his followers patterm to this day - hence violent jihad etc. Both Christians and Muslims follow their leader: however Christs example leads to life and peace eternal and Mohammad's leads to fighting, war, and eternal death.

These principles are summed up well by Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo, a traditional Anglican who directs the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity in London. To Quote essayist David Warren, "He found himself recently trying to explain the crazy truth to a journalist who asked him about violent passages in the Koran, which Islamists quote constantly. "Is there no part of the Koran which modifies these violent texts in the way that we would say our New Testament modifies the Old Testament?"

Dr. Sookhdeo: "In fact the reverse is true. … All the peaceful passages that are enjoined on Muslims occur in the chapters written at Mecca. They are tolerant toward Jews and Christians. But when Muhammad gets to Medina and sets up his city/religious state, the tone towards other groups changes rapidly. The statements about slaying the pagans and killing the Jews and others occur there. Now in Islamic interpretation, all passages that are revealed later take precedence over those revealed earlier. This is known as the ‘law of abrogation'."

There's no getting around it, the Koran, Mohammad's life and the 'law of abrogation', confirm the teaching and practice of Islam as a religion of violence and war.

Sorry to burst your bubble Keith, or expose the deception/propoganda whatever you call it, but the facts speak for themselves - ask the victims of 9/11, Bali,Spain, London,Mumbai etc. Or ask the Cholera sufferes in Wimbabwe, dying of a disease that's officially pronounced 'over': their lives/deaths tell the truth that the lies have whitewashed.

In conclusion Keith if you truly want peace, there's only one who is called the Prince of Peace, Jesus who said "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, give I to you." The Bible also says 'But though we, or an angel from heaven \preach any other gospel unto you, let him be accursed" Gal 1:8. Clearly the Koran is 'another gospel' and the end of those who follow it is clear.
