So many times people have told me that my arguments on Islam are not valid, because the Quran does not say that Muslims are supposed to look down on
other religions, among other things.
People who have never seriously studied Islam and the Koran assume that Muslims and their holy book are much like the Bible and Christians.
That's is a mistake.
Muslims must take the Koran literally when the meaning is clear. The Koran is clear that Muslims and non-Muslims are not allowed to be friends.
Luckily, most Muslims don't take Islam that seriously. Unfortunately, the small but significant minority that do seem to be very successful in
dominating the wider Islamic community.

As for such [of the unbelievers] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, God does not
forbid you to show them kindness and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, God loves those who act equitably. (Quran 60:8)
The muslims co existed with the Christians and jews in the middle east for hundreds of years, way before the british discovered America, way before
France had its revolution, way before the Crusades. There was Iraqi jews, palestanian jews, Jordanian Christians, Egyptian Christians, Moroccan jews,
they all lived there for hundreds of years in peace, now you come to tell me otherwise?
and they continued to live together until the british and other western powers came in and divided the middle east, destroying the caliphate (war on
islam, you call it colonoilism), established Israel (kick them out of their homeland), terrorize them to this day
Verily, those who have attained to faith [in this divine writ], as well as those who follow the Jewish faith, and the Christians, and the Sabians -
all who believe in God and the Last Day and do righteous deeds-shall have their reward with their Sustainer; and no fear need they have, and neither
shall they grieve. (Quran 2:62)
^ fair enough to the following christians and jews above
but what about the so called christians like George Bush and the so called jews like Ariel Sharon? you can call it politics but I call it religious
and what about all those who came before and have caused nothing but pain and tribulations to the muslims, by forcing dictators upon them, coups and
assassinations, sanctions and wars, terrorism and propaganda just to subdue them and control thier lands and resources
so why should the muslims hug the french who are obviously serving a larger evil agenda, surely they are not christian brothers but a deceiving,
lying, backstabbing enemy. history can vouch for that.
I bet you, yourself if you had a country you wouldnt trust the lying french, why should the afghanis? pfft
