In addressing Geno M., you write, "Your entire article was written, based on what you believe islamic beliefs to be, you [Geno] also state, 'Lest we forget, it is from the Koran that these people derive their inspiration.'.

After criticising Geno M. (the title of your reply to Geno was, "probably one of the most ignorant things i've read in my entire life"), you go on to ask,"have you read ANY of the koran, let alone the entire thing?"

Well, Douggie, in case he hasn't, I thought I'd do him (and you) a favor. Drumroll, please...............................

The Quran tells Muslims to kill the disbelievers wherever they find them (2:191), murder them and treat them harshly (9:123), slay them (9:5), fight with them (8:65), strive against them with great endevor (25:52), be stern with them because they belong to hell (66:9), and strike off their heads; then after making a "wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives" for ransom (47:4).

The Quran is alien to freedom of belief and recognizes no other religion but Islam (3:85). It condems those who do not believe to hellfire (5:10), calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (9:28), orders the Muslims to fight them until no other religion except Islam is left (2:193).

- that's just 11 verses. Perhaps when the 12th imam shows up, he can teach you the rest. -JS
