Comments of Faqi Hussain

Reader comment on item: "A Corrective to the Pipes Worldview"?

Good show Faqi Hussain!

I wonder how and why the Muslim apologists always come out and tell us we don't understand all this "killing" mentioned in Quran as we don't know the hidden meanings in Arabic and all that blabber that goes with it. Question is:how many ways one can interpret the meaning of word "killing"? Meaning of "killing" is always killing and no amount of parsing is going to convert it into "loving". Whats wrong with admitting the truth?

These apologists and many Muslims might even question the veracity of all these references you have quoted from Quran and Hadith as we have seen in some responses to this and other articles on this site.

Bravo for saying: "If, however, they are unable to provide the clarification, non-muslims will, reluctantly, be forced to conclude that either the Muslims do not consider the Quran the basis of Islamic practice, or that the statements made by Muslims leaders living in the West; Islam = Peace & submission, are not entirely correct. Islam is not a peaceful ideology far from being a religion."

If only more Muslims can say this, there may yet be peace in this world.
