Kuran is a good book but so is the Bible

You are right my friend...that there are a lot of great muslims that have done a lot for science and the world. But do not forget that there are equally as many great Christians who have brought great science, musical, sporting and technology enlightnment to the world. Muslims like Bin Laden and many moderates in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia see the Muslim religion as something non belivers must follow and use violence as a way of getting people to join their religion, such as in Indonesia.

That is not the point of the Kuran which teaches love. Muslims need to stop protecting their relgion and urging non belivers of joining them as if their religion is the best. No religion is the best, religion should be a means of loving others and not inciting violence.
