Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by Joe Van Voast (United States), Jul 28, 2005 at 07:01

I don't know how you can keep on going with this dream that Koran has been preserved!!

It's well known and documented that Othman was the one who gathered Koran many years after Muhammad died. He ordered to burn all other scriptures and maintained the one that was in Madina. So the only reason why Koran is only one version is because Othman burned all other versions. Do the math.

Second of all, many shiite have two documents claiming to be two surahs of the Koran that have been deleted by Abobaker, Omar and othman. those two sorats, sorat alwelaya and sorat alnorain talked about Ali cosuin of muhammad. I read those sorats online and came to one of two conclusion since those sorats sounds exactly like the rest of the Koran :
1) Someone human has written the Koran in the first place so another shiite man came and wrote those two sorats in the same style
2) Those sorats are really deleted and hence your claim of the Koran to be preserved is wrong...

I, being a christian Arab, use the word " rabb " instead of Allah as our fellows Alawites ( who are not recognised by mainstream Islam as Moslims just because they believe in Jesus Christ ) do. We use Rabb to distinguish ourselves from Moslims and to imply that we know God differently than Moslims do.

Also, I'd love to hear Dan's thoughts. I know my idea is "unthinkable", but if they knew we were DEAD SERIOUS the Muslim leadership might come to their senses. Especially if they realize the terrorists have become their worst enemies.

Thanks!
