I'm responding to those who say Islam is a religion of peace and love, and that the Islamic extremists misinterpret the Quran. hmmm. I have been reading the Quran and yes it seems to teach love only if you are a Muslim. For the rest of us,, this is what the Quran teaches.....

Surah 9:5 Fight and slay the Pagans(that's the rest of us,, anyone non-muslim) wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every strategem (war).

Irans Ayatollah khomeini declared, "The purest joy in Islam is to kill and to be killed for Allah".

Quran 5:51 O you who believe, take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is of them.

Quran 9:73 Be harsh to them (non muslim) for they are going to hell anyway.

Sheikh Saad Al-buraik (Saudi Govt cleric) said: "I am against America until this life ends,, she is the root of all evil and wickedness. Muslim brothers, have no mercy or compassion on the Jews. Their women are yours to take,,,God made them yours, Wage jihad and pillage them".

Hmmm, Dont you tell me that Islam is a religion of peace (peaceful to ALL people).. Reading the Quran is scaring the heck out of me.

Listen to the Bible: Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44)

You folks, i would suggest that you take Sun Tzu's words,, "know your enemy". Read for yourself their literature and seek the truth for yourself.
