Difficult problem

Reader comment on item: A Muslim reformation?

Submitted by Josef Zuares (France), Oct 26, 2003 at 09:26

I find it difficult to believe that we are faced here with a problem of interpretation of the Koran. The basis of the Koran is in question here. Read just a few verses and you get the full picture. You just have to read the Koran in order to understand that its purpose is the conquest by sword and by fire of all populations on earth.

I believe that Mohammed believed in the Koran as the Muslims believe in it today: it for the good of all nations to become muslims and since Mohammed proclaims himself the last prophet sent to earth to bring the word of Allah, it's not difficult to understand why the muslims believe in his prophesies, regardless of the other religions' right to exist.
