When the word, fight, let's say to be taken from Quran 9:111, 9:29-30 and 8:67 and/or any other parts of the Holy Quran to support as immediate violence, riots, fighting and etc. have been found to contradict with many parts of the Holy Quran:

a) Many parts of the Holy Quran discourages us to do evil deeds and yet you encourage the word, fighting, do you find it is contradictory in your interpretation with most parts of the Holy Quran. As it is contradictory, it proves that your interpretation is erroneous and must not be acceptable among muslim extremists and their interpretation is the same as you:

Quran 54:3, "They belied (the Verses of Allah - this Qur'an), and followed their own lusts. And every matter will be settled (according to the kind of deeds: good deeds will take their doers to Paradise, and similarly evil deeds will take their doers to hell). "

The above verse shows the two parts of deeds. One is good deeds and another is evil deeds. The above verse condemns evil deeds to hell and good deeds to paradise. You encourage us, muslims, to do evil deeds, i.e. violence, vandalism, riots and etc. What is the end result of doing this as mentioned in above verse?

Quran 33:71, "He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the hell-fire and will be admitted to paradise). "

The above verse even contradicts to your interpretation of the word, fight, then. This verse demands us to do righteous good deeds. It is mentioned that righteous good deeds lead to paradise. You purposely interpet the word, fight, as violence, riots, vandalism and etc. Has this interpretation of the word, fight, that could lead to righteous good deeds. Remember the words, goods deeds, is mentioned instead of bad deeds.

There are many verses in the Holy Quran encourages muslims that believe in Allah do good deeds instead of evil deeds or bad deeds. Do you feel that your interpretation does not sound logically but rather contradictorily? It is simply that you support one teaching and yet the other part of the Holy Quran does not support and your doctrines seem to go hay-wire.

You support that the word, fight, in the Quran as violence, riots, vandalism, slaughtering and etc. and yet many verses from other parts of the Holy Quran informs muslims to do good deeds instead of evil deeds. Is it a good deed for muslims to fight with non-muslims when non-muslims are not fighting with muslims? What is your definitiion of good deeds in the Holy Quran and your definition of evil deed then? Muslim extremists should consider carefully the correctness of the interpretation of the word, fight, so as to cease their evil deeds, i.e. fighting, violence, vandalism, killing and etc.

We, moderate muslims, want to show to muslim extremists that their interpretations have been found contradictory from the first chapter to the last chapter and cause them to do evil deeds from the beginning that should not be that since it contradicts Allah's mission for us. His mission for us is to preach instead of killing. The reason why there were killing in history due to all religions do not respect each other. Non-muslims could not stand when muslims preach the message that hurt them and there started with fighting.

Examine all the comments that I have submitted with the comparison with the verses from Holy Quran and you would dicover that muslim extremists have committed greatest sins since they slaughtered non-muslims that could not be pardonable.

Don't condemn moderate muslims since we, moderate muslims, discourage violence, riots, vandalism and etc. Majority of the moderate muslims might keep silence but I, moderate muslim, am the odd one out to dare to voice out the wrong act of muslim extremists and I hope that they would repent after reading all the comments that i have listed out.
