Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: To Ahmad

The verse U quoted as;
O you who believe! Take not as your Bitanah (advisors,consultants, protectors, helpers, friends) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, christians, ) since they will not fail to do their best to currupt you. They desire to harm you severly. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed we have made plain to you the Ayat if you understand. Surah 3. 118

Please, what has this verse got to do with killing or suicide bombing? The verse is simply telling the muslims to take precaution against their enemies.

Let me help U understand the verse better.
From what you said "I have nothing against Arabs or muslims. However out of love for them, I find it my responsibility to make them see that Muhammad was a false prophet".

And the verse said "Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse".

Therefore from what U are uttering against our beloved Apostle, we will conclude that what you hide in your mind against him is worst. And whatever affects Muhammad has definately affects us and we will be very careful to people like you, but not every non-muslim. We marry from christians/jews, we friend them, eat & work together. Prophet Muhammad has mortgaged some of his properties with a Jew in order to get some loans.

You can only prove Muhammad as a false prophet through a constructive reasons but not Hatred, many have tried but end up in accepting Islam, b/cos of their clean mind & sincerity.
