ABUSE HOLY QURAN FOR VIOLENCE, VANDALISM, WAR AND ETC.

in response to reader comment: Nozzi: I have only shown that the Koran hates non-Muslims and wants Muslims to destroy them

Plato, I have discovered you have abused the history of Islam for violence. Not only that, you have abused the Holy Quran for violence too.

The following are my observations upon how you abuse the Holy Quran for violence:

a) You have abused the authority of Allah. When a word, judgment, or a word, hell, is mentioned in any part of the Quran, we, moderate muslims, acknowledge that it should be the execution of judgment from Allah and it should be at the time of the Last Judgment Day in which non-muslims will be condemned and be thrown into the hell. However, you have abused it for violence.

When we, muslims, pray to Allah in the mosque, you bow our heads down so as to give respect to Allah. Or in other words, we will not do those things in which Allah did not/do not call us to do. It is the same as in a country. the soldiers of the country would only listen to the Government whether they should trigger off action to fight against another country. However, if the Government of that country does not give authority to the soldiers to fight with another country, the soldiers cannot rebel against the Government so as to trigger off war with another country. The same is to Allah. When the word, judgment, or the word, hell, is mentioned in any part of the Holy Quran, it implies that Allah is the one that will carry out judgment upon non-muslims. As those words are meant for the actions of Allah, why should we, moderate muslims, abuse the Holy Quran to fight against non-muslims when it is mentioned that Allah should be the one to execute the action? Unless it is mentioned clearly in that verse that Allah has delegated the authority of killing to us, we, moderate muslims, could act upon it then.

Many verses that have been brought out by you. However, I discovered the common word, he, is mentioned in the Holy Quran and most of the time, refers to the action of Allah to carry out certain action. However, you have abused it to imply the violence from muslims currently. That is really misleading and absurd and without logic. This is due to it implies Allah in executing the judgment. How could we, muslims, abuse the power of Allah when it is mentioned that Allah is supposed to be the one to execute judgment upon non-muslims.

b) When you read the word, fight, from a certain paragraph, you did not browse through the surrounding paragraph and makes a silly conclusion that Allah demands us to fight. That is rather absurd and without logic.

c) If you refer to the history of Islam, you should have discovered that Prophet Muhammad involved actively in preaching the message of Allah to the pagans. If Allah's mission to Prophet Muhammad is to kil and kill, why should Prophet Muhammad preach the words of Allah to his wife, servant, friend and assoicate since he should slaughter them instead?
