in response to reader comment: Take out Time and Seek the truth about Islam

I do not agree with you friend. I cannot say my opinion of many things islamic as I still developing it. I have read little of the Quran and but I do think that it says to fight back when oppressed, to fight hard and valiantly, to push back the invaders until peace is restored and then to stop fighting. I'll not comment on the practices of so called muslims in that regard. My point is that the Christian bible, also called the new testament, states that 'if a man strikes you on your right cheek, offer him your left also', I do not say christians should be door mats but the best christians (missionaries and such I suggest you research a man by the name of brother andrew) fearlessly preach the gospel (good news) but they never fight back, at least the ones I know of. And I espouse this christianity and no other I daresay, to preach even when beaten and to never fight back with voilence, only persistence. How ever I contrast this with the Quran of fighting back when oppressed. I do not understand how the Quran can complete christian and judiaism (is that how you spell it?) when the teachers oppose one another. A verse from the old testament (torah? Talmud? Tankh?) says 'I am God and change not' therefore how can his teachings contradict one another if it is the same God but just an update?
