in response to reader comment: You're still missing the big picture

Hi Nabil,

Each and every sentence by Robert Spencer and Ibn Warraq are backed by quotes from the Quran, the Hadith and the Sira. But I do'nt want to get into an argument over this as Muslims will only see what they want to. And no, Robert Spencer has never, not once, advocated violence against anyone.

Its not about the horrible things done in the name of religion, its what the religion teaches that's the problem and whether it should be called "The Word of God". If the Quran was only an affirmation of what came before it, what was "revealed" to Muhammad? Should'nt, a "revelation" be something new? Fact is, Islam is nothing but Judaism rehashed, borrowed from Judaic teachings and traditions and put together decades after Muhammad died. Some "revelation"!

Regarding Aisha - laws or not, do you not think it immoral?

I'm glad that you do'nt think the Quran should be taken literally. Please tell that to as many Muslims you can. But then, the Word of God thing becomes doubtful.

Lastly, as you can see in this blog and around the world, there's a lot of negativity and anger towards Islam. Why do you think that is?
