Dear James,

Its good to read the research you have done regarding the verses in Quraan about jihad etc. I am a muslim (neither moderate nor extremist) and what I understand is that Quraan is a code of life. It tells you how to live a life and in doing so also tells how to fight or defend or even eat and drink.

There are 123 versus according to you which promote killing, which leave us with 6543 versus which do not promote killing. I personally felt that Islam gives us near perfect code of life comparing with Judaism, Platos eutopia, Hinduism etc.

Intolerance among the people living in middle east, South Asia is because of their cultural upbringing rather something to do with scriptures. They beat their wives or kill innocent people not because Quraan says but to show their masculinity.
Submitting....
