Reader comment on item: Islam: The Arab Imperialism

you need to read the Kuran in the context it was revealed in. those verses are not about infidels because they are infidels, it was about infidels because they where fighting and oppressing new muslims at the time. there is no verse in kuran that says non-muslims deserve to be killed, instead there are lots of verses calling muslims to show respect and love towards mankind especially people of the book "christian and jews". I know that many people are trying to take verses from quran out of their true meanings and contexts just to say this religion is evil. Allah says: the closest people to muslims are those who say "we are christian", and also says: "Allah would not prohibit you from loving those who do not opress you" We are sked by the prophet to be nice to christians and jews and to eat with them, give them our charity, marry them, respect their religion and worship places, and have freindship with them, that is why minorities in the muslim world have been protected for ceinturies, including jews who chose to live in the muslim world because they felt protected.
I assume you are knowlege seeker. you need to be careful when you deal with a religion chosen by milions of people around the world. IT MIGHT BE THE TRUE MESSAGE OF GOD.
