in response to reader comment: Hello all Christians and Muslims you guys are BROTHERS........ please understand stop hating each other!!!

It seems strange to me that a Hindu is unaware of the partition of India and the horrific acts committed by all religions except Christians and Jews during that time.

Perhaps you don't know your own history so I don't expect you to know ours. Christianity was around for 500 hundred years before Islam and Judaism for a whole lot longer so for the Quran to be making pronouncements about Jesus is odd to say the least. Have you heard of a hatchet job, or plagiarism?

For any moslem to quote the Quran in repudiation of anything said in the bible is just plain silly to our minds. What would you say if you knew what they think of the Vedas. and quoted the Quran as the repudiation of them (the Vedas) I am sure you would just consider them silly too.

Your efforts at peace making are from a good heart. Our bible says blessed are the peace makers. So I bless you.
