Nozzi: Since English is not your forte show what you write to someone who knows the language

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Koran 9:95 is advice from Allah to Muslims, not to Pagans

Submitted by Plato (India), May 17, 2009 at 01:03

Nozzi, you wrote:

>>Quran 9:95, "They will swear to you by Allah when you return to them so that you may turn aside from them; so do turn aside from them; surely they are unclean ………."

The phrase, they are unclean, in Quran 9:95 certainly refers to the pagans instead of non-muslims. For instance, if Quran 9:95 is meant for muslims, it is rather absurd since you refer muslims to be the unclear. Bear in mind, the phrase, they are unclean, in Quran 9:95 give an undisputeable truth that Quran 9:95 is meant for the pagans.<<

Nozzi, you should show your pieces to someone who better understands English before you post them here. You simply don't seem to understand even the simplest of sentences.

Yes the Koran is calling the pagans unclean. But the Koran is talking to Muslims which means it wants Muslims to consider kaffirs unclean. Read how the verse starts off with 'They will swear to you….' This shows Allah is speaking to the Prophet ABOUT the pagans.

This is what I had written in http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/155495 : It is advice from Allah to the Muslims. You are told to keep away from the pagans because Allah has created a caste system which condemns unbelievers as unclean. And as a so-callled moderate Muslim you don't seem to understand that Allah is creating a divide among his creatures on the basis of belief. That you seem to think this is a good thing goes to show what kind of a religion you follow.

I again suggest you show what I had written to someone who knows English better to understand what I wrote.

Regards

Plato
