in response to reader comment: Islam's Double Standard

Harrak, you cleverly try to twist things around so you can place Islam in a grey area, and as a true Muslim you do any thing to mix all the facts together thinking you can dissolve the truth away, and just argue because you like to.

"Put Islam in a grey area", this is what Muslims always like to do.

Some a straight questions, to nail you down;
Do you consider Islam a religion or not? I suppose you do
Do you consider the Quran a book from some God? You do, and you love it don't you.

So when you compare Harrak, stop weaseling and talk apples to apples.

Don't place human acts on one side and religion on the other and start you comparison.

Humans do nasty things, and it turns horrible when politics and intelligence is introduced, but is it related to their faith? Not a must. You have to go and revise what their religions say first from their books and don't explain things out of your head but see what their books say.

If you want to compare, compare the religions, compare what the books say (and again don't explain things out of own head) but revise all the books of a religion. When we read the Quran we didn't explain things out of our mind, but we followed all the official books such as Tafseer, Hadiths .. etc.

And on the other hand when you want to compare human acts or politics, do the same.

You're like comparing sports with chemistry!

Islam is the Quran and all related books, and not the Muslims (either they do good or bad), and the same with any other religion, it's the books that represent these religions and not the acts of people or governments.

So don't be so clever, because it won't work.

Go and read your Quran, know which verses have been cancelled and which reside (Nasekh and Mansoukh). See all the killing and terror, read about the hatred Allah puts in the Quran, and for the few Mecca'n peaceful verses, I have bad news for you, they have all been cancelled "Mansoukha".

This is the Islam you are defending.

This is Islam Harrak... Muslims are told to hate all non-Muslims, Allah told them so, Muslims must kill non-Muslim men and slave their women and children this is your Arabian Allah..

Got it Harrak? But if you don't consider Islam a religion but an empire (which truly it is) then stop whining, this is life, empires fight each other. ...
