Dear Mr.Infidel,

In your haste to quote the ayats of the Koran , you seem to have lost sight of one basic fact. After all the kafirs have been killed, after their lands have been seized and they have been deprived of their possessions, after their temples and their places of worship have been razed to the ground, after their works of art,which constitute the most prized and cherished heritage of mankind, have been destroyed, after their historic monuments which took their craftsmen and artisans long years of hard work and dedication, have been reduced to rubble a la Bamiyan Buddhas, in short after Salafism has destroyed everything and there is nothing left to destroy, won't there be "peace " in the world ?

Of course, you may point out the examples of Pakistan and Iran and say that after destroying the kafirs, the faithfuls may start falling on each other and slitting each others' throats, but dear friend, just remember that this, largely is the handiwork of that "great Satan" whom we all must hate and find faults with- the U.S.A. We indeed, must believe that the Koran promotes peace. Why? Because the power of our politicians and the livelihood of our 'intelluctuals ' dpends on it.

Jaisingh Thakur.
