Selective, aren't we, in order to make Islam seem moral

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?
in response to reader comment: Intentionally misleading others or it is lack of knowledge

Maybe we can start by finishing up that pesky 18:29 you left hanging out there with its leading punctuation. Let me help you:

...surely We have prepared for the iniquitous a fire, the curtains of which shall encompass them about; and if they cry for water, they shall be given water like molten brass which will scald their faces; evil the drink and ill the resting-place.

In other words, let those who disbelieve as they please be, because Allah has prepared a special torment for those who reject him and his messenger and commit "iniquities", like not adhering to the shari'a.
