Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: Mitigation of Misquotation

Submitted by Douggie (Australia), Oct 4, 2007 at 04:19

document by the mirriam-webster "original or official paper relied on as the basis, proof, or support of something" now, the definition you provided of article: "one of the sections of a document " so, how's this? the ARTICLE i referred to is a SECTION of and ORIGIONAL PAPER i used as the BASIS for my response... is that exact enough for you? as for deaths caused by atheists and other non-muslims, if you want numbers, hows this, you go and get all the murders commited around the world and minus the ones caused by muslims, personally i cant be bothered dealing with those millions of numbers, sorry i just cant!!

and as for misquotation... as in your 'response' you spread propaganda with the koran verse [2:191] you qoute " kill the disbelievers wherever they find them " you directly misquoted this by forgetting to leave out the previous verse [2.190], "fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you" and the following verse [2.192] "But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." and the next [2.193] "but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors."

this is telling them only to protect their faith, not to kill randoms but speciffically states "those who fight with you" and the term "oppressors" is also used... say.. this sounds familiar to me... what was the story?.. oh yeah, america was founded by rebelling against and killing their oppressors england.. mighty fine story and one to base the US's pride on i would say?

anyways, so i'm probably not gonna respond anymore, because i'm sick of trying to perhaps shed a small amount of light on a topic, but i think now that perhaps you know about the topic, you just dont understand it and would prefer to manipulate it to suit your worldview rather than manipulate your worldview to suit whats really going on here?

peace out

Douggie..
