Dear The Scholar,

I refer to you weblog dated November 09, 2005 at 13:18. I believe you referred to me.

You mentioned that I quoted the Quran out of context, you may refer to Edward's weblog for more elaboration.

Sometimes, we don't answer all the questions addressed to us in weblogs because of time. However, your rather "long" article that was submitted was found to have avoided other pertinent issues.

Your Quran contain more hate verses for non-believers than any other issues. Your deity that you worshipped is so fascinated with hell that he purposely created humans and set the vast majority to be non-muslims so that he can send them to hell and torture them. Any muslims who killed non-muslims will get 72 perpetual virgins.

Your Quran 2:6-7 "As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom." ....

You quoted Mahatma Gandhi and Sir George Bernard Shaw saying good things about Islam. Funny, they never converted into the religion. Can't say much for Sir George, but Gandhi was a politician. He may have said it in order to appease the muslims and restore peace since the muslims demanded a separate rule which ultimately tore the country into two.

The Scholar, just look around you. Muslims from the south of Thailand, Beslan, Phillipines, Indonesia, France are creating problems. What peace do you preach.

You said Allah is most merciful and compassionate. I see so much hatred he has for disbelievers. Humans that he created and purposely veil their eyes and hearts. He has such vivid ideas about how to torment people.
