Hi Michel I mean M&M

Now here is your lesson in Islamic theology and for the Nth time:

1. In Q9:29 your Allah declares unconditional war on the Jews and Christians and the Hindus and the Budddhists aka ahl al-kitab. Right?

2. Your Allah in Ayat al-sayf (Q9:4) tells Muslims to go out and kill polytheists unless they convert to islam. Right?

3. Then who are really those polytheists? Now we have to turn to Q9:30 where your Allah states that Jews regard 3Uzair as the son of Allah (sic) and Christians regard Jesus as the son of Allah. Right? Therefore your allah is saying that the jews and Christians are _polytheists_ now do you get it or are you beyond help as usual?Therefore the mushrikeen in ayat al-sayf are really the jews and Christians! And you know what? One of the oldest commentaries of the Qur'an is by Muqatil and this is indeed what he says. How about the pagans of Mecca? How about them? And where does it say in ayat al-sayf: iqtoloo al-mushrikeen alladhina ya3ishoon fi Makkah! Oh I forgot that you know no Arabic or "kill the polytheists that live in Mecca" Let me help you it does not say that. So you see? your context thing is gone out of the window!

4. Now this one is beyond your limited education: the rasm of the word iqtoloo or kill (plural) in ayat al-sayf can very well be read as qatliloo or fight which very well fit with Q9:29. Now do you get it?

5. Now based on the doctrine of al-nasikh wa al-mansukh (oh do not panic or abrogation) and the fact that surat al-tauba or Q9 is the last revealed Sura then the final dispensation of your Allah is that Jews and Christians and hindus and Buddhists are polytheists and therefore congratulations our dear Michel I mean M&M your Allah is asking you to go and fight all jews and Christians and Hindus and Buddhists!

And shame on you for babbling about the context thing again like a good pupil educated by tablighees.
