Oh? So you think the Koran has been misinterpreted?

Reader comment on item: Islamists Endorse Muslims Owning Slaves
in response to reader comment: You see not the whole story

Submitted by Grady Russell (United States), Mar 6, 2007 at 15:16

In my ten years in the mid-east I met many Islamic people (men of course) who felt slavery of non Islamic people was condoned in their religion. "Kill the Musrikun (unbeliver) wherever you find them and CAPTURE them and beseige them and wait for them in each and every ambush" Sura 9:5

It is my impression that Muslims feel anything you do against "unbelievers" is not only all right but required in their religion.
