'if any one slew a person t would be as if he slew the whole people and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people (Qur'an Surat Al _Maida)

This is a verse from Qur'an . I think Daniel Pipes should make a deep research about Islam and Qur'an because Islam Denounces Terrorism. A person, who read Qur'an and believe in Qur'an will be very modern , intellectual and compassionate

Watch the program of these young Mıuslims who have been educated with Qur'an .

Daniel Pipes replies:

Let's give the context of Koran 5:32-33.

32. We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

33. The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
