in response to reader comment: misconception on islam

Parvez, this is the third time we are covering the same ground. Verse 59 of Surah 8 states:65. O Prophet (Muhammad)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.

Do not fight with facts. Islam began with violence, spread with violence and continues in violence - even against their own minority Ahmadiyas - as demonstrated by today's attack on mosques in Lahore killing 80 people. Unless sensible people recognize the truth Muslims will keep suffering and dying. Begin by saying that we all are God's children and we should love each other and not kill. Then inside your homes you can believe any interpretation of Quran that works for you.
