Sultan,

Like all who see themselves in superior terms, you claim to be insulted because someone does not recognize the Koran as anything other than something written by a human. It is not God-inspired. I say the same thing about the writings of Joseph Smith and Ellen Gould White as well as the JWs.

It is interesting that you point out the origin of your own Muslim faith - Sufi. I have no problem with your practice as a Sufi, since this group do not follow the more violent aspects of the Koran. This is why you have proved my point that there are within Islam those moderates who do not believe in the violence that we are seeing today. It hurts you. It hurts us.

In a pluralist society we should be able to live side by side and respect each other. However, the Islamofacists do not want to allow either of us to get along together. They do not want us to respect each others differences. They want to establish the world caliphate. It is their driving force.

I agree that there are millions of Muslims who are indeed troubled over what is happening. There are millions who are very good people and who strive to lead good lives. They will be rewarded by God because of what is in their heart. However, I remind you that the Islamofacists are encouraging the young men to kill themselves and others in the belief that they will be martyrs. No way Jose. They are not martyrs of God and there will not be a reward in heaven because of the offence that they have committed against their neighbour.

Perhaps, Sultan one day you will look at the Koran with fresh eyes and you will see what is wrong with it. Perhaps over time you will see that what is written did not come from God... That does not exclude the good people who have never known any other life and who do not go around killing others.
Submitting....
