Reader comment on item: The "Shocking Document" that Shaped the Middle East Turns 100

Submitted by ECAW (United Kingdom), May 9, 2016 at 08:54

Dr Pipes - A friend claims that you believe the jihad verses in the Koran are only applicable to the time when they were "revealed" as opposed to being intended to be valid for all time until the entire world is under Islam. I maintain that you hold no position on the matter, only being interested in what Muslims believe about it, in the hope that they may move more to the former. Which of us is right, please.

Daniel Pipes replies:

You are emphatically correct. I don't engage in my own Koranic analysis but follow what Muslims believe it says.
