Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam

By the President's logic, as long as there is no human sacrifice, witchcraft is on par with Judaism, Roman Catholicism, and every Protestant denomination. I was a CEO of a defense contractor for 20 years working with several Islamic countries. Bush still does not understand Islam nor the "box" every Muslim is in. For example, how does he explain these passages from the "holy" Qur'an?

"Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war." Qur'an 9:5

"Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.'" Qur'an 8:7

"So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam." Qur'an 8:39

"And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!" Qur'an 9:30

"O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. Qur'an 5:51
