First before i begin, I like to take time out to remember all the heroes police,fireman,men and women, all the loved ones that lost theirs lives on 911. This time in 2001 I've joined the US Army to protect my homeland and way of life as an American born Muslim. Almost six years later we're still losing men and women in the armed serves lives while the master mind behind 9/11 is still out there. No Jew,Christian or Muslim is safe until the real person behind this is brought to justice.

Now to confront this topic. All I do is stand up for my faith as I see it. Now what you see Islam as is for you and anybody that wants to see it that way. But i could easily find verse in the bible that i can say the same as you say about the Koran. As i said before its all about interpretation. Here's a few:

1.Mat 15:24-26 A women is called dog because of her race and tells her, and tells her he wasn't sent to her, but to lost sheep of the house of Israel and she is not entitled to the children bread. the faith that she was entitled to certain blessing(crumbs) does not change the status. (This shows racism and hate).

2. Numbers 25 Where G-d stopped the plague in Israel because the Phinehas executed the race mixing couples.

3. Leviticus 18,19,20 list sexual offenses. But have one way to avoid penalty and that's by having ex with slave women. In Leviticus19 if a man have sex with a slave women is not to be punished because she is a slave. what about women rights here????

4. Deut. 21:10 When going to war with the enemies and you see a women that you desire then take her. if she ceases to please you send her away.

5.Numbers 31:7,14 They waged war as G-d has commanded them to kill every male. but kept the women as captive and and took their wealth as spoil. Moses was enraged and told them to kill every women they have sex with and kill all the boys. but keep the virgins for themselves.

6.Neh: 13:23 I saw the people were marrying foreigners. Their children were learning foreign languages. I called down curse on them ans struck them and tore the hair out of their heads and made them swear by G-d not to marry foreigners. ( So you kind have rape foreign women but not marry them.?)

7.The bibles says that rape is accepted if its done to foreigners but if done within the country of itself you are to be stoned. Deut: 22:24 If a man rapes a women in the city he should be stoned and her as well.

8. Just as the priest are allowed the test their wives with the water of trail by ordeal. Num 5:11 The priest will tell her to drink the water and if her stomach swells then her name will be cursed among her kin. for not being obedience to her husband.

9.Deut 14:21 You shall not kill anything that is dead but give it to a stranger in your town. ( You can't it because it is unclean but you could give it to a foreigner.

10.Levitcus 21:9 If she is profane herself by playing harlot, profanes her farther; she shall be burned with fire.( Now this says if she sleeps around then she must my burn at the stake.

NOW TO ME THE BIBLE DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN THINGS IN THAT WAY BUT ONE COULD SEE HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE BELIEVE IT DOES. and lets not forget in a lot of modern countries now a days. Use more discreet way of the death penalty. But not too long ago did man use chopping the head method or hanging, especially America. Lets say in my Grandparents days they still did it. So the apple don't fall too far from the tree does it?
