in response to reader comment: Quran teaches hatred, unlike the bible and any other religions

you forgot to mention the context in which the verses regarding killing kafirs were revealed. they were revealed in the context of battles and wars. the stand in a battle ground but not in peaceful USA of course. In those times, the majority consisted of pagan Arabs who wouldnt leave the Muslims alone and the Muslims were the minority.

When the muslims were attacked, the order was given to fight. But studying in USA, I never felt the need to kill any Christian girl, guy or teacher or homo. I felt safer in USA as a lone girl. in fact since i have seen both the east and the west, i dont find much difference between a practising muslim or a practicing christian. they both try to please their God by being nice, giving charity, raising their kids and giving them good education. i think christians are better cuz they tend to be more educated. muslims who hate christians are stupid. muslims need to be more open minded and less cultural. what is bad about some poor christian who is always being poilte and giving charity or studying or teaching? have seen so many of them like that. and they have better human rights protection and law and order in the US. all christian institutions. christians shoud be envied not hated. btw you are bigoted too "Angel of Death" , all muslims arent like kill the kafirs. most educated ones like christians. it is the product of the British education brought by colonisation. who can hate their own teacher?

i have read the entire Quran back to back and still didnt feel like killing anyone-thats the point. may be that is cuz i am educated and i had a chance to come to USA and see how people there really were, not as bad as portrayed by our mullahs. heck i dont know who to be angry with now, you for being bigoted towards my holy book or our mullahs who put hatred in the hearts against the US for no reason. wish we could join hands and fix the world instead.
