Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Bottom line of Nuray's argumentation

Submitted by Mamdouh M. (United States), Nov 15, 2005 at 18:52

Dear Nuray: The aya you quoted does not say that arabs killed their daughters at large scale. Any ways I give you the point.

However if that aya indicates that arabs burried their daughters alive at large scale then the following ayas establish that Prophet Mohammed carried out massacres which is confirmed by all hadiths and all siras.

And he promoted violence:
008.065 I: O Prophet! rouse the Believers to the fight
