Question to Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims
in response to reader comment: Assurances needed

Submitted by Sameach (United States), Dec 24, 2015 at 00:47

A newly minted-genuine Christian who adheres to the true teachings of Jesus in his or her radical pursuit of Christianity would not turn to weapons or violence, but instead use love and forgiveness as the greatest revenge. I recommend everyone to watch the video of an Iraqi Christian girl named Maryam who comes from a small community that was persecuted by ISIS. She exemplifies radical Christianity which translates into forgiveness and praying for your enemies. In the Q'ran, which if my memory serves me right, is the book that moderate Muslims use/consult, it clearly and explicitly instructs its followers to fight those who do not worship Allah, Surah 2:191.

Where are you deriving your reasoning when you compare radical Christianity with radical Islam? Are you looking at historical examples of people who used the name of God to advance their goals or are you basing this on the Bible/New Testament?
