Just to set the record straight...

Reader comment on item: The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: The problem with Muslim history.

Well I'm not an American who considers themselves knowlegable about the subject of Islam. I am an actual Muslim and Arab and I think the garbage you wrote needs to be corrected. The Koran does not tell us we may lie in the interest of Islam or at all, in fact. Having actually read the Koran, I would know that.

And whoa, Muslims infiltrating American universities? There's still a curriculum set by the university, a professor doesn't teach whatever they want.

Islam is tolerant of all religions and it stresses to its members to accept differences such as race, gender, faith, etc. Differences which have not always, for instance, been accepted in the US, a country which only came to be by exterminating several races and stealing their land from them. If you live in America, then you would probably be more informed on the subject of your misdemeanors than ours. I suggest you look into those, hefty as they are.

And FYI, tolerating diversity, that's something written in the Koran. Something you would know if you actually read it.
