Nozzi: Prove that the word 'fight' in 9:29 means doing dawa

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: VIOLENCE, RIOTS

Submitted by Plato (India), Apr 25, 2009 at 10:46

Nozzi, you write:

>>Plato, as you mention that you support the word, fight, in the Holy Quran as violence. Do you support that you should obtain weapons, such as, riffles, guns, missiles and other weapons, to be imported from Middle East to trigger off fire with Governments especially the leaders of your Governments are not Muslims.<<

The order to fight in the Koran (9:29, 9:111) means exactly that and it is not asking Muslims to do dawa and hoodwink people into thinking fighting has a peaceful connotation in the Koran.

Muslims do import weapons from Muslim countries to shed the blood of non-Muslims in their countries. Some Muslims in Kashmir get weapons from Pakistan to create havoc there. Palestinians import weapons from their neigbours to sent missiles into Israel. The Abu Sayyaf group import weapons from Muslims countries to disturb the peace in the Philippines. In Pakistan Muslims use Middle Eastern money to kill other Pakistanis they consider non-Muslims (the Shias). Need I go on?

Regards

Plato
