QURAN 3:151 IN RESPONSE TO PLATO

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Allah terrorizes unbelievers

Plato, you have raised Quran 3:151 to defend your truth. Let's browse through the verse below carefully:

Quran 3:151, "Soon shall we cast terror from the hearts of unbelievers, for they joined companions with Allah, for which he had sent no authority: their abode will be Fire. And evil is the home of the wrong-doers". The word, we, in Quran 3:151 refers to Muslims and the word, they, as indicated in this sentence should be meant for non-Muslims. Why should Quran 3:151 mention the phrase, they (non-Muslims) joined companions with Allah since Allah should be against non-Muslims? Certainly, the phrase, they joined, in Quran 3:151 is some kind of trick from non-Muslims and that is why this phrase is followed by the phrase, he had sent no authority their abode will be Fire. As the phrase, they joined, is mentioned in Quran 3:151, certainly we, Muslims face the trap from non-Muslims and we have to fight then. Or in other words, we began to set the trap first and we have to fight then. However, Muslim extremists trigger off their fights first when non-Muslims do not fight with them. What does Allah condemn these non-Muslims that set their traps against us? Quran 3:151, "...evil is the home wrong-doers".
