Yes Dillah, Quraan allow believers to fight injustice, not merely to offer the other cheek and encourage injustice. But it lays down rules to protect the vulnarables, not to attack women, children, unarmed, protect the animals, trees etc., in conflict. It also says whoever kills a human unjustly is as if he had killed whole mankind (Al-Maida 5:32). I do not think the hundres of thousands of American troops went scratch back of Iraqis, but to kill, the so called terrorists, and you hear almost a million people dead there.

You tells me that there is not a single verse in New testamnet teaching human, violence. But you forget that New Testament is not whole Bible, and old testament is God's infalliable words. You keep telling me that the God in old testament is same god you believe and is different from Allah (moon God of pagans of Arabia). Yet you find hundred of words from your God exorting men to blood lust, pillage and extermination of cities and nations, massacre of animal, uprooting of trees. When you say the god of love do you mean it is the same god that exhonerate a prophet for sleeping with his daughter in old testament.

If you were asked to Love your enemies and all the murderers and terrorist why are millions of people being killed to day. Why do you have to stock pile nuclear, chemical, and biological wepons that can exterminate world hudreds of times. When Pearl Harbour was attached you dropped nuclear bombs on the innocent civilians in Nagasaki and Hiroshima as way of showing the other cheek. Can you site any parallel in the history to the cruelty shown by crusaders when they captured Jerusalem.

Is there any parellel in the history for the holocaust, or Srebrebisca massacre and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. Was it Quran that made people in Ruwanda to commit genocide. Did mass murderers Foday Sankoh of Sierra Leon and Charles Teyler of Liberia read Quran in their Churches? Did Pol Pot of Cambodia who killed millions mainly muslims, read Quran in his temple? When blood thirstly terrorist attacked your country killing innocent civilians, do you think any level headed person will help them find another targets to attack accoding to new testament? But you indecriminately bombed far away villages and town killing indecrimately thousands of innocent civilians as a revenge rather than finding the culprit and punish them.

Dear Dillah, people have used scripturs to justify the cruelty throught the history. If you look back majority of it is commited by christians. We do not campaign to hate christians for that reason. But for the actions of a few lunatics, you invent lies to spread hate against 1.3 billions of muslims. You cannot see a single bad word said against Jusus or Mary by muslims. But if you read the postings in this site you see extemely vulgar words used against Mohammed and his followers, filled with hate. This you can see thoughout the history. Where did this culture of hate orignate.

Regarding the violence, if you have not read Old Testament before, here are a few quots, from hundreds of such verrses. I never meant offend anybody, but merely responding to allegations, most are extemely hateful using vulgar language.

Finally yes Quran mentions Israel and people, descentants of Jacob(origincal name of Israel), not as a geographical state. But bible mentions Palestine as a geographical state.

Exodus 32:27
Then he said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.' " 28 The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died. 29 Then Moses said, "You have been set apart to the LORD today, for you were against your own sons and brothers, and he has blessed you this day."

Numbers 25:17
"Treat the Midianites as enemies and kill them,

Numbers 31:7
They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man. 8 Among their victims were Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba—the five kings of Midian. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. 9 The Israelites captured the Midianite women and children and took all the Midianite herds, flocks and goods as plunder. 10 They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps. 11 They took all the plunder and spoils, including the people and animals, 12 and brought the captives, spoils and plunder to Moses and Eleazar the priest and the Israelite assembly at their camp on the plains of Moab, by the Jordan across from Jericho. [a]

Joshua 8:24
When Israel had finished killing all the men of Ai in the fields and in the desert where they had chased them, and when every one of them had been put to the sword, all the Israelites returned to Ai and killed those who were in it.
