in response to reader comment: other islamphobe......

Mr Ali, a muslim from India tells us:

"i have seen the movie fitna ."
good - and which passages of the Koran had you feeling repulsed? Lucky you live in India isn't it - where the secular government and large numbers of non-muslims you live amongst would moderate the response from muslims of seeing the carnage their little green book was responsible for.

"..and i pity mr wilder he never read duetornomy and old testament iam sure he will ban that more anything else ."

The thing is - Deuteronomy and the Old Testament in general are read more in the light of historical context than anything else. For Christians the New Testament is the main thing.

So using stories from some parts of the Old Testament set 2500 years ago as somehow justifying the actions of Islamists and what they believe Koran says NOW - is totally stupid.
