THE QURAN TEACHES VIOLENCE ONLY WHEN SOMEBODY STARTS TO FIGHT AGAINST US

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nozzi: The Koran teaches violence

Yes, you are right that Quran teaches violence. However, violence has to be done in a positive way instead of negative. Don't mislead and ffool us of your teaching.

We fight against non-muslims if they start to burn our mosques.

We fight against non-muslims if they start to fight with us.

Bear in mind, they are those that start their fighting with us and we fight back. This kind of violence is indeed acceptable in the public point of view. This is due to we fight so as to protect mosques and we fight since non-muslims start their fightings first.

If someone fights with you first and if he beats you and bullies you continuously, do you fight back? If you fight back so as to protect yourselves, this could prove that violence is not always to be considered bad since you are defending yourselves to prevent to let someone kills you by beating you.

Don't tell you that you are such a person that you would not fight back so as to defend yourselves and you let someone beats you continuously without fighting back and utlimately causes you to lie dead on the street.

Surely! You would fight back when someone fights with you. Don't you think this kind of violence is to be considered good and healthy.
