Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: QURAN QUOTES JIHAD BUT QURAN 4:90 COMMANDS NOT TO FIGHT WHEN NON-MUSLIMS STOP FIGHT

Submitted by Kathy (United States), May 10, 2011 at 19:52

Hi Mohamad,

I appreciate your desire to believe that the Quran doesn't encourage conquest. However there is no link between the verses you quoted ("do righteous deeds and not the evil deeds we used to do") and any concept that the "evil deeds" which they are no longer to do, had anything to do with fighting against non-resistant non-Muslims. On the contrary, the Quran clearly and repeatedly commands Muslims to fight against non-Muslims.

Many of those passages have no clause "if you are being persecuted" etc. Every Muslim who really believes and follows the commands of the Quranic ideology must fight against non-Muslims with the goal of there being no religion but Islam. That means Sharia Law and all the horrors that go with that. For those of us who know the freedom of Judeo-Christian-based democratic countries, this sends chills of dread down our spines as it smacks of another version of Nazi ethnic cleansing.

Submitting....
