Reader comment on item: Keith Ellison, Where Are You?
in response to reader comment: Torah offers more violence than Quran

Submitted by TruthWFree (United States), Mar 1, 2010 at 23:49

The Torah or the Old Testament is primarily a history book and the violence was directed against the people in the land that God gave to Moses and the Israelites. One does not hear of some Jew doing indiscriminate violence these days based on the Torah. The Quran's violent exhortations are apparently as in force today as in the time of Muhammad as evidenced by the number of violent attacks against Unbelievers and the rhetoric one sees in Muslim demonstrations. If you really cannot understand this difference between the Quran and the Old Testament, then it would appear to me that no amount of debate would make you see the difference. The Quran exhorts Muslims to do EVIL violent actions against Unbelievers and apostates. The Quran and its adherents should be banned for that reason from a free society such as ours. The possibility of a Muslim who believes in the violent verses to decide that Allah wants him to go on a killing spree is too great.
