Jan is to be congratulated for bringing to the attention of contributors and readers some specific Islamic writings which encourages extreme violence against the non-believers

I have written to many periodicals and newspapers asking that they publish, on a regular basis, those suras' and verses of the Koran which state, without equivocation, that non believers should be killed to further the spread of Islam. At this time no one has opted to do this. Most probably out of fear of retribution or perhaps because they adhere to the fallacious concept of "political correctness"..

It is noted with interest that the enlightened and intelligent contributors to Mr. Daniel Pipes website seem to be less constrained and are forthright in exposing the violent nature of Koranic writings. Perhaps some free thinking reader has already documented the numberd suras and verses I mention and can provide us with this data. Where is there a more appropriate forum for enlightenment.? As all must realize, the average person in the U.S. as well as in other advanced societies, possess little or no comprehension of those lethal exhortations of the Koran !
