Dear Dr Pipes,

Your reader Carl Goldberg quoted Quran 9/29 and said that 9/29 recommends Muslims to harm Jews. I checked. You are right Quran 9/29 is not specifically about Jews. In fact, it is an equal opportunity destroyer. It recommends that all disbelievers be killed or destroyed [[verbatim quote from quran.com: Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.]]. You see, the book wants us to pay Jiziah and be humbled!

And so no one criticized me for picking 9/29 out of context, I checked 9/28 and 9/30. In 9/28 Allah (or Muhammad) bad mouths all polytheists as unclean. So I as a Hindu am prohibited .to stay away from al-masjid al-haram. In 9/30 Allah removes any doubts about what he is talking about in 9/29 and hoes on to specifically, bad-mouths Jews and Christians.

What can I say, Sir, this is all documented and can be verified. It is as clear as black-and-white.
