Reader comment on item: The Middle East's Tribal Affliction
in response to reader comment: Ahmed, Please dont try to pull wool over my eyes

Thank you, Ali Khalaf, for your letters, and for replying to Ahmed with irrefutable proof regarding Islamic scripture. Revealingly, Ahmed chose to reply by avoiding what the scripture of his own religion has to say; instead he vaguely points to the "neccessity of going back to the basics".

I wonder what Ahmed would say to this: Islam is the only recognized religion in human history that promises "paradise" to those who kill. Specifically, those Muslims who die, while killing (the infidel).

Since you seem very knowledgable on this subject, what are your thoughts on this? I believe it is located in the Qu'ran, 9:11, as well as other Islamic scripture.

To me, it reveals the violent nature of Islam. Eternal life granted to those who KILL. There's nothing even remotely close to that in the Bible.
