Don't exaggerate a tiny matter

Reader comment on item: Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

Submitted by Billy Cardiq (Indonesia), Jun 24, 2005 at 01:47

Ms A Basarudin seems to exagferate a tiny problem. This book might be bought by someone who hates Islam. The Quran itself contains some verses that make other religions as the "sinners", and as the "prey" of the muslims as written in Quran. These verses are called "sword verses". The sword verses are definitely aimed at Christians. It might be that the first user of this Quran wrote the word mentioned by Ms A Basarudin.
