Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam
in response to reader comment: Protect the innocent

The bible does not tell christians to murder people. the koran does. THAT is the difference.

While Washington was president, Jefferson was ambassador to France, and Adams ambassador to England, merchant vessels from America were being attacked, hostages taken and cargo stolen off the coast of Northern Africa. The Europeans had been paying ransom for some time for these attacks.

Who or what was attacking these vessels? muslims

When TJ and JA questioned the ambassador from Tripoli about this matter, the reply was that, "our prophet and our koran tells us to do these things and we have a right to do this."

TJ and JA submitted a report to congress and therefore this is recorded in American archives - look it up.

islam has been attacking for 1400 years to become dominant. It is time to put an end to this nonsense.

Following are words of wisdom from the koran:

koran 47:4 So, when you meet (in fight - jihad in allah's cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks (beheading!) till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then take a bind and bond firmly (captives). Thus you are ordered by allah to continue in carrying out jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace islam.

koran 9:5 Then when the sacred months have passed, then kill the Mushrikun {see 9:1 - Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the oneness of allah} wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush.

koran 9:29 Fight against those who believe not in allah....and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (islam) among the people of the scripture (Jews & Christians), until they pay the jizya (tax levied against non-muslim)

koran 3:151 "We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve."

koran 9:38 O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the cause of allah you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the hereafter.

koran 5:51 O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as friends

Compare these great humanitarian words to the ten commandments.
