in response to reader comment: Show me cruel and barbaric verses

I again don't know if you read the koran or are just getting info. from unrelaible sources but the koran speaks for all of mankind. It's funny how every time people want to try and prove their point that the koran speaks of evil doing, they refer to when the korans speaks of infidels,christians, jews or converting. But they never really mention the good it says about all faiths and the people of the book meaning jews and christians. Or how the koran comfirms what the bible and the torah before it that G-d sent the mankind.

When you speak of those cruel and barbaric verses they are not talking about jews and christians but the meccans and medinans during the time of the prophet (pbuh). Many non-muslims get the two confused.
