Dear Malaysian Muslim...

so, lets take a closer look

"Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah.s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost" (47:4)

so, I m glad that you cite it in the full extent - as you can clearly see - there is a clear exortation to fight and to war with unbelievers..And Allah's will is already inclined to war, and never to peace...

btw - why do you replace Jihad by fight? it is the same...

as it is in Sura (2:216) - Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.

that do not sound peacefully. Whole quran is full of exhortations to the violence .. if you are a good person, it is in spite of islam, not thanx to islam.

so - to your comments to Palestine - 1. if there were some "palestinian" nation, they have to have as the first language "palestinian", not Arabic language..

2.can you mention the name of some newspaper in palestinian, not arabic language?

3.btw, try the web, and find the name of the last Palestinian king... do it, you will find very interesting results

So, if they came later, they are not original inhabitants... you can make your own conclusions...

as for Jews - my nation was long, for centuries in the similar situation as Palestinians ,we even could not even use our language in schools and offices - despite of all, we never, never threw bombs.. our land was freed peacefully - so, I know that it can be done other way than disguisting selfbombing ... but we are not mohamedanians thanx to God. maybe that is the cause of our peacefullnes..

Have a nice day
