Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: susan

While you are convinced that Infidels, Christians, Jews, Apes and Pigs will never reach the level of sophisticated intelligence and knowledge attained by Muslims, you do need to accept that we do have limited understanding of Islam and Qur'an.

For instance we know that when Muhammad(PBUH) was first blessed by the knowledge of the Qur'an, he attempted to convert the Jews. He did so by praying in the direction of Jerusalem, keeping the Sabbath as a holy day and spouting friendly Ayas to the Jews. However, when they refused to convert, Muhammad(PBUH) changed the direction of his prayers from Jerusalem to Mecca, changed the holy day for Saturday to Friday evening and abrogated the friendly Ayas with ones condemning the Jews.

Therefore Muhammad's(PBUH) final attitude towards the Jews is revealed in later Suras and Ayas, more specifically, Sura 5 and 9. Thus with my sincere apologies to you, I hereby point out that your references to Ayas, 2:256, 18:29, and 109:1-6 are not applicable to freedom of worship by the Jews, however I do acknowledge that as a Muslim you do every right to deception when dealing with Infidels, Christians, Jews, Apes and Pigs.

There is one other aspect of your comments I would like to address. And that is, as a Muslim, you are not required to explain anything. For instance, in your comments submitted on Sep 22, 2006, you state that, "Ali Sina is nothing but a Liar". You do not provide any examples of his lies, or identify any of his remarks as lies; as it is sufficient that you said so. Naturally, this protocol does not apply to the rest of us. I certainly hope that my explanation will limit the number of unreasonable responses directed to your comments. May Allah continue to bless you with unparallel knowledge, wisdom and understanding that seems to escape the rest of us, according to your Islamic logic.
