Nuray: You did not answer my question...

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: To those who obey Mohammed

Nuray,

You did not explain the verses from the Quran because you cannot. I've noticed that every time someone quotes the Quran and reveals that it is a book of war, you do not defend it, but you knock Christianity and the Jews instead. If you believe Allah is God and that the Quran is peaceful, even though the book clearly reveals it is not, explain these verses I have quoted or that others have quoted. The topic is "Is Allah God" If he is, the world is in big trouble because terrorism will not stop until all the unbelievers will be destroyed and all the world will be conquored by Allah's followers. This is what is in the Quran.

You will now say that because I am an unbeliever, I cannot understand it. The fact is, I can read and I know what it says. I have heard that a new believer in Allah has to read the Quran repeatedly and pray repeatedly whether it makes sense or not, then they will get understanding. I believe this is how people are brainwashed as well.

You are right that the life of a person speaks louder than words. Explain these events in Mohammad's life. In order to test his new found power, he made war by killing a man, enslaving others and looting a caravan in the Nakhla Raid. All this took place during the month which traditionally, in Arab times, was the month of truce and peace. His second battle was the battle of Badr where there was more fighting, killing and plundering. Then he turned on the Jews by attacks on the Qorayshite caravans which "opened the way for the acquisition of power by the Prophet Mohammad and his companions and for their eventual domination of all Arabia..." (quote from Muslim scholar Ali Dashti). He goes on to explain how Mohammad and his companions used the money they plundered from their victims to "strengthen the prestige of the Moslems (sic) was their seizure of the property of the Jews of Yathreb." When the Jews refused to believe in Mohammad and his god, he attacked Jewish settlements, such as Khaibar, and sent assassins to kill individual Jews.

I could go on but I won't. Too much time wasted writing all the things he did. You most likely just say that I can't understand because I am an unbeliever. If the life of people speaks louder than words, the life of the believers in the Quran are also the terrorists of today because they obey the Quran and follow the life of Mohammad. These people are just living the life that the Quran teaches. There are Muslims who are peaceful, but that is because they do not obey or know what the Quran commands.
