YO MO ...

the quran was written about 600 years after Jesus said:

Mt5:43 "You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor e and hate your enemy.' 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Lk6:27 "But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. 32 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Many people complain that mohammad wants muslims (and the whole world) to live in the 7th century AD, but in reality he wants everyone to revert to how things were 2000 years before that ... thus your quotations from the Old Testament ... Jesus spoke for God in clear language and His message is clearly opposed to that of mohammad ... all you get out of the quran is 'obey mohammad and allah or you're going to burn in hellfire / or / lie in wait for those who oppose you and kill them when ever you can' ... Jesus says 'do to others as you would have others do to you' mohammad says 'do to others before others do to you' or 'do to others as others do to you' either way mohammad is NOT a prophet of the same God that sent Jesus to save the world. If the world at least tried to imitate Jesus it would be a wole lot better off than if 1,000,000,000 people continued following mohammad ...
