Obied Khan, you did not prove anything

in response to reader comment: Good Point Dr. Pipes

Mr. Khan, you did not prove anything. People are not judged by what they read or by how they read it. People are judged by WHAT THEY DO. We, who criticize Koran, do not act according this book, but muslims do. And if some muslims feel comfortable killing infidels, oppressing women, they (not us) should read Koran in the way you have described - "finishing the verse or bringing the verse before it or after it to get the right understanding from it".

No matter how WE read Koran, we never address our issues with Islam to ALL muslims. However, those muslims, who read Koran incorrectly (in your terms), address their issues to ALL non-muslims. That's a big difference. When we criticize Koran, we point out only reasons that in our opinion turn muslims to islamic radicals.
