The Golden Rule of islam

Reader comment on item: "The Battle against Islamism Has Not Yet Started"
in response to reader comment: The Koran is the CORE of the "Islamic question" also Naivety by infidels....response to Aldo Moltifiori

The Golden Rule of Judaism and Christianity is "Treat others as you wish to be treated".
The Golden Rule of Islam is "Kill all those who do not submit to Islam" (including all Muslims who leave the religion, and any Muslims who believe a different version of Islam than the Muslim proclaiming the Golden Rule of Islam).

I believe Anne and Aldo are right in their comments about the Koran as the "core" of Islam, as is
almost everybody else in this remarkable run of insightful and incisive Comments.

All thanks to Daniel Pipes for providing this unparalleled forum, and for tolerating so many comments that differ from his long-standing view that Islam can be reformed without imploding or collapsing.

Perhaps someone will now collect and publish those 100 or so expressions of the Golden Rule of
Islam mentioned by Anne. (Even 50 or 25 would probably make the point equally well).
