in response to reader comment: You claims are bogus

I am Chris that is not a Chris? Last I checked my name of birth was Christopher...ah yes...so you are right I am not Chris...I am Christopher named after St. Christopher who carried the Christ child across a river. As for as being a tablighee, you can accuse me of being whatever you want but you sound pretty silly without any evidence of me being some secret Wahhabi dude trying to corrupt America. It doesn't bother me as I'm used to Islamic extremists accusing me of being a Mossad Agent, CIA, FBI, and even funnier....a Shi'a. I've actually been called a Shi'a more then anything else by Islamic extremists. If you wanted to understand my religious beliefs, I would recommend that you watch Winnie the Pooh cartoons. I might also be considered a unitarian but I prefer not to label myself as anything more then a Deist and even that label is not quite accurate. Anyhoo...

I'm glad that you know a little Arabic. Alhumdillah!
And um...yeah I've heard the poorly named ayat al-sayf. Here is a great refutation of it:

By the way, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf speaks perfect classical Arabic and studied under some of the top Islamic scholars. He is considered by many in the Islamic world to be one of the most capable traditional scholars in the world today.

As for your verse of the sword there are multiple hadiths strong in validity (you do know the methodology of the hadiths do you not?) that have Mohammad saying quite clearly that Muslims can no kill women and children. Here is a nice little summary of some of those hadiths regarding the attacks on 9/11.

As for the booty issue, I responded about that in another reply but I'll repeat again that taking booty was the way in which most armies of that period paid their troops. War booty also included the taking of slaves for most military forces back then. Just thought I'd add that in.

As for the Hezbollah guy, he is not my friend and I don't post my debates publicly as I don't need idiots going in there and screwing up the dialog I have going as part of my research. In addition I used part of that dialog for my graduate studies research. Posting publicly my research sources violates the conditions that were approved by my university's review board for human subjects research.
I really don't care though if you believe me or not. However if you spot an English speaking Islamic forum that has some nut jobs glorifying terrorism, please post a reply here on this forum under one of my posts with a link and I will be happy to demonstrate as that would not be part of my earlier research that has already ended as I write up my thesis. It would be part of my own private research outside of the university.

An example of an Aya I like to use against extremists:

"Good and evil are not alike. Repel evil with what is better. Then he, between whom and you there was hatred, will become as though he was a bosom friend." (Qu'ran 41:34)

And if they pull the abrogation card on me:
"And the word of your Lord has been accomplished truly and justly; there is none who can change His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing. " (Qu'ran 6:115)

If they are truly Muslim who claim to follow Sunah, they can not ignore those verses.
