Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Nuray (Portugal), Dec 13, 2005 at 16:35

Dear Barbara,

" It is a very strange reason for you to leave a religion if a messenger gives a order of killing people"

That is exactly what I meant. Both Moses and Muhammed, peace upon him, was leading their people during their life times. They gave such orders to protect their people, as a leader. Moses killed a man himself to protect one of his friend. I give also Moses as an example because you might read about him in your holly book. Jesus was a Jewish. Neither Jews nor his people accepted him as a messenger during his life time and he had no chance to lead his followers. If your messenger were a statesman your judgement could be different.
