Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: I don't write for "Islam Q&A"

Thanks for writing. You apparently missed my point. I provided the verses from the bible NOT to prove that like the Koran, the bible promote violence. Au contraire, the point i was trying to make is that verses, whether from the koran or the the bible, when taken out of context can be misleading. Both jews and chrsitains lived side by side with muslims at the time when they were the dominant majority without killing them. on the other hand, throught history Jews suffered persecution on the hand of the christians. That is until the begining of this century when the arab-israeli conflit surged.

The interpretations i provided are from both American and middle eastern scholars. You guys ask for a moderate interpretation of the koran and when provided you dismiss it. just like someone on this board was saying that a liberal or moderate muslim is not a true muslim. LOL. Now, a non-muslim telling a muslim you are not representing your religion accurately, you should commit terrorism to be a muslim??.

BTW, i'm not an Islamist, Im a fairly liberal Muslim married to a JEWISH gal.
