First of all any "tract" of any religion CAN be used as justification for violence "up to and including murder" against anyone of any religion!
Remember the violent murders and beheadings by christian Filipino vigilantes known as tadtad (meaning to chop, because they literally hacked their enemies to death)..I do recall one in an interview actually JUSTIFIYING the act by quoting from a well known source (JESUS)..."Those enemies of mine who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence" luke 19:27..

Or evangelical nutcases carrying out attacks and even murder on abortion clinics in the USA.. MOST even salivating at the prospect and even encouraging a holocaust in the Middle East to hasten the so called "return" of Christ..
Or the ultra orthodox Jews believing and accepting the Talmud's commands such as " even the best of the Goyim ( meaning non jews) should be killed"....Carried out to the letter by devout follower Baruch Goldstein when he mowed down dozens of worshippers ...Or another one murdering his own Prime Minister..
Also interesting when you mention human rights problems within third world countries and failed states such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan whilst completely overlooking and nothing to say about the continued persecution of christians and the violent deaths and murders of Nuns, Priests and the burning of churchs in Hindu dominated India??
My reply to Anne Marie ( the scholar) was only to point out her erroneous interpretation.. And that includes any other Christian, Muslim, Athiest, or calithumpian believing in the popular fallacy that ALL christians and Jews should NEVER be accepted as friends and/or Allies...

Submitting....
