Letters to the editor: The truth of Quran

Friday, September 20, 2013 - 12:01 am

Some claim that Quran 2:256 (there is no compulsion in religion) is “Islam’s universal statement of religious tolerance.” They insist that Muhammad brought us Allah’s “religion of peace.”

The truth is that Islam is primarily a religion of violence and war, in obedience to eternal injunctions like Quran 9:5 (Slay the idolaters wherever you find them) or 9:29 (Fight those who believe not in Allah … until they are in a state of subjection).

If you don’t believe these bloody words mean what they say, take a look at Muslim terrorism around the world and Muslim persecution of non-Muslims where they can get away with it.
