Can Islam be Reformed?

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by A. Ahmed (United States), Aug 15, 2002 at 16:05

This to comment on Mr Michael Haley who wrote on August 13. You are forgetting the biggest difference between Islam and Christianity is that not only Quran preaches violence against non muslims. Their prophet, the model of behaviour for all human beings, practised extreme violence in his last ten years of life. He had 800 Jews of Madina of Bani Quraiza beheaded in cold blood and sold their innocent families in slavery. He had his critics assasinated. He attacked and looted commercial caravans, and non Muslim communities all over Arabia massacring many and enslaving many more. He okayed slavery and sex with captured women and practised it himself. The Bible may have some violence in it, but Jesus Christ's record, as history shows, is very clean.
