Nozzi, you wrote:

>>The way we, moderate muslims, interpret the Holy Quran is entirely different from those, muslim extremists. Certainly we would like muslim extremists to interpret the Holy Quan in a right way so that they would not abuse the Holy Quran for holy war.<<

As a moderate Muslim why don't you interpret 8:67 for us. I have asked you before but you have not responded yet. And while you are at you could also tell us why Allah considers people he created najeed in 9:28. Do you consider the pagans, the fellow citizens, around you also to be najees? When you do your dawa if you are honest you should first inform your pagan friends that one of the reasons for your dawa is because Allah considers them unclean. You are trying to get them cleaned up by converting them to Islam which will automatically make them clean.

>>This cerainly occurs the same to other religions that have different kinds of divisions and yet they use the sources to guide the path of their people.<<

You seem to forget Muhammad's claim that other religions are false, so divisions among them can be expected.

>>Buddhism was founded in Northern India by Siddhartha Gautama and yet there are different divisions in the practice of Buddhisms and there are Theravada Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism and Zen Buddhism and etc.

Jews, Christians and Catholics use the Old Testament scripts to guide the teaching of God and yet there are many divisions in their own religions and there ae Orthodox Judaism, Liberal Judaism, reform Judaism, Protestan, Presbysterian, Methodist, Catholics and etc.<<

What did you expect from false religions? But can a true religion founded by Allah suffer the same fate? If it does then it too is a false religion. The fact that there are divisions and much more violent than in any other religion in Islam is a known fact. Check the number of people dying almost daily in Pakistan because of the divisions caused by Islam. Open your eyes to reality, Nozzi.

Plato
