Koran 5:82 says: "Surely they that believe, and the Jews, and the Christians, and those Sabeaans, who believe in God and the Last Day, and works righteousness--their wage waits them with their Lord, and no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow."

Quran (29:46).: Be courteous when you argue with the People of the Book [Christians and jews), except with those among them who do evil. Say: We believe in that which is revealed to us and which was revealed to you. Our God and your God is one.

I dont think Islam is the problem, i think liberal Muslims should work on the interpretation of other verses that seem to advocate violence or extremism. there are extreme verses that seem to avocate violence in the bible as well, but christians dont take the words literally .

By blaming Islam rather than muslim extremists you will only alienate moderate and liberal msulms. Islam need revision NOT prohibition..
