What can I say is that ex-muslims, specially like Nazia, Ali Sina, have never been true muslims( ie doubters or hypocrites at best) and have never truly grasped the spirit and truth of Islam. They are a typical example of ...individuals who attacked Islam using their own ignorance of what is true Islam and what is the "Islam" of talibans and al-qaeada and their erroneous intrepretation of Quranic verses and quoting them out of context!

Like for example like you and Ali Sina and his likes, you badly misinterpret Holy Qur'an 4:89 and 9:1-12 as a command to Muslims to kill all infidels or apostates including those peace-loving infidels/apostates which is not the case and only idiot will interpret the said verses in that way!!!! If you behave like Ali Sina or believe or appreciate his idiocy then better use the name Ali Sina rather than muhammad as your pen name!

Because Ali Sina and his likes interpret the said verses in that way then it just indicates that they are idiots or just have small brain to understand the truth and context behind the said verses!!! No wonder they reject Islam and attact it because they are in the first place pretending to be wise and broad-minded! In other words, Ali Sina and his likes are just a pity victim of their own ignorance and biases!

Had all of you are wise and broad-minded enough you will discover the truth that the said verses 4:89-90 and 9:1-12 were revealed to Prophet Muhammad during the time of war between the defensive muslims and the agrresive disbelivers. verses 4:89-90 was revealed when muslims face the defection of the hypocrites and join or supports the enemies who are at war to muslims and bent on killing or anihilating muslims as soon as possible!!!! And 9:1-12 was revealed during the time time when Muslims have concluded a covenant with the disbelievers in Mecca. and many of those disbelivers who are signatories of the covenant did not follow the covenant are still attacking and bent on killing the Muslims at any time posible!

So in context. the said verses should be read and interpreted during the context of war and when muslims facing the enemies who are in the purpose of killing them!!!! In fact, in verses 4:90, 9:4, 9:6-7 Allah is expressely commanded the Muslims to be just and humane and not to kill or they should not at war with those peaceful people who love peace instead of war and killings!! In 9:4 allah had commanded Muslims not to include in their counter offensive those disbelivers who remain peaceful and still honor the covenant and only those who violate the covenant and still at war with muslims is allowed to be killed during their defensive counter-offensive fight as indicated in 9:5. The group of disbelivers in 9:5 are still at war with Muslims and their treacherous attitude is further described in 9:8-10.

Then how ...Ali Sina and his likes interpret the said verses? They interpret it ...as the general command to kill all infidels and apostates, may it those apostates or infidels are at war to muslims or at peace with them! No wonder they hate Islam because they are simply burning themselves of their hate by their own ignorance and foolishness!

There are many verses in the Bible in which the God of the jews and christians commanding abraham, Moses, Joshua, David etc to kill all the disbelievers, not only their male warriors, but also women and children. But did the Muslims misquote them or misinterpret them as a general command for the jews and christians to kill their enemies may it be pagans or not? Are the muslims quoting those verses as a tool to malign Judasim or christianity and used them as the very reason why from Constantine, to the crusaders up to the colonialist west era had conquered and killed both pagans and muslims? Of course not, because muslims are not like you and Ali Sina and his likes to behave like that and regard it as the command of God applicable at all times! Muslims knew very well that they are just a command during the state of war when pagans are at war against the prophets of God and their people!!!

Also, Ali Sina and others... like him also regarded the wrong practices and wrong interpretation of some Muslims as the true Islam because it serve their ridiculous interest and branding the practices of true and educated Muslims who love peace and believed that taliban/al-qaeada are deviated muslims as not a true Muslims or not a true Islam!!! That is only the behaviour of an ignorant and bigot Islam-haters!
