Just a brief thing.

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)
in response to reader comment: "Islam teaches to love"-- where?

Submitted by LeoPyre (Canada), Mar 18, 2009 at 01:07

i can not quote to you parts of the Quran for i am not that learned. But I can tell you what islam teaches, for i am a muslim. Islam says to be fair to the ' People of the book". these are the christians and the Jews. We are also not to be cruel to the non-believers for one never knows when someone might decide to revert to islam. Therefore we are not to judge others on their religion.

The only time (as far as i know) that muslims are allowed to be aggressive towards non-muslims is if they are being attacked. Physically for example. Or if they are insulting islam.

That seems only fair for i have seen non-believers get quite aggressive if one even hints towards their religion being 'not the right one'

I hope that helped.
