To "Infidel":

I gave you what you wanted, but you're not satisfied, and I never expected you to be.

Sura 9 in the Qur'an seems to be your favorite Sura. To me, it is one of 114 Suras, but to you, the other 113 might as well be abrogated. In fact, why not just reduce the Qur'an to Sura 9 and throw all the others out?

Now here's my challenge to you: In your mind, it is obvious that whatever religion or philosophy you follow is far better than Islam, and that Islam cannot hold a candle to what you follow. So please enlighten me here: What wonderful, marvelous religion/philosophy do you follow, anyway? It must be so great, it actually permits you to wage wars on other religions. In this department, my hands are tied...I believe that "Unto you your religion and unto me my religion", but surely, yours is so much better. So...instead of listing all the things that are wrong with my religion, why not tell me what yours is and what's so right about it??
