Take not the Jews and Christians for allies ! (The Koran)

Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More

Submitted by Anne-Marie Delcambre (France), Oct 29, 2009 at 21:44

I agree with what Daniel Pipes says about Turkey. He talks...turkey.
But who is an ally, who is an enemy ? If we do business with a "muslim nation"..we call it an "ally". Is the biggest mistake to do that.

I DONT REALLY CONSIDER THE " MUSLIM COUNTRIES" AS STAUNCH ALLIES .
Why ? Because I remember
As far as I remember, The Koran (5, 51) ordered

"o ye who believe ! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them..Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk "

Anne-Marie Delcambre, French orientalist
