Do not fool yourself
Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
Submitted by F. Shakki (United States), Jan 17, 2006 at 21:51Who say that the Koran could be interpreted differently is living in a dream that will never come true.
For seven hundred years, no Moslem can even think if there is any thing wrong in his religion. Who dare to say any thing, will be killed and accused of blaspheme.
Koran dictates the Moslems not to think about their religion.
There are verses in the Koran it say that Allah change some verses.
Based on this principle, that Allah change, the verses came in the medina cancelled the verses came in Mecca.
In other words, Mohammad in weak position is different from the powerful one.
Mohammad himself led the battles against the infidels to force them to become Moslems or face death.
It is not a matter of what is said in the Koran only, but also the deeds of Mohamad and the kalifas who followed his death.
All of them led a bloody history to convert the people to Islam.
Since the Islam starts, violence is associated with it.
Some Moslems left Islam after Mohammad death. The next man in charge send troops to force these people to become Moslems again or face death.
Look at the Moslem countries; these countries were not Islamic before. They were Christian countries. Now they are converted not because Islam has something to make better religion, but because of the terror used against them.
Of course Moslems got smarter now of how they spread their religion.
They use several ways now like terror once, bribes sneaking through the education of America and Europe and through their men marrying women from these countries. They use sleazy ways to spread their religion by all means.
One sheik in Saudi Arabia said to his followers that Moslems in weak state must go along with infidels till they gain power. Once they gain power, they must conquer the infidels. That is their way and you must face it instead of closing your thinking and dream of something will never happened.
Do not fool your self by some events happened in some Islamic countries used as a propaganda to fool the west and America. These are fake policies and not the real Islam. Do not fool your self and say there will be moderate Islam.
You do not really know the real Moslems or Islam.
Not because you study Arabic and spend some time in Arabic country as a foreigner, you became expert in Islam and know these people. I do not think so.
Ask the Christians who lived their life there in these countries, suffer much and know better than you in these aspects.
