Dear Barbara

"Why don't we Muslims attack person of Jesus?"

Sorry for my English grammar? I should have read once more.

Let me explain what my meant by
(1) "ordinary people like me". I am really an ordinary Muslim who has no attachment to any group or any website. I am not trained to teach Islam. My education is on science but not on theology,

(2) "People who are not modest like you will get angry easily and be nasty, inevitably, even they don't mean it."

We are educated people. When we get angry we won't get wild but can be reckless while choosing words. I write many people as much as I can. I try to be careful while conveying my view as much as I can. As you said that many people having different background write to each other. Not easy, indeed.

You wrote that
"The Koran was written by people over a hundred years later after Mohammads death by people who didn't know Mohammad . This is contradicting your own belief ."

It is true that the Quran was not compiled into a single book in the Prophet's time but the verses were recorded. Muhammed, peace upon him, was illiterate. He had ordered many scribes to write down the Quranic revelations. Arabs used to memorise Quran having 6234 versus. The recitation of Quranic verses is still common practice among Muslims. After his death (632) all reliable oral and written accounts of the revelations are evaluated carefully and recorded in one single book, between 650 and 656.

You know better than me. Bible is not one single book but a library of books. The writers are known like Matthew or Luke. We Muslims don't have APerson's Quran or BPerson's Quran.
Quran is only words of Allah.
