What makes you qualified? anybody can find a random verse from a holy book and try to spin their take on it. You do realize there are many interruptions of the Quran just like the Bible. People need to educate themselves more regarding the different sects within islam before jumping to conclusions. Each sect has a different interruption of the Quran. Themohammadman is right in that certain factions in the Arab world (Saudi Arabia) are trying to spread their own interruptions of the Quran (salafis and wahabis). Since Saudia Arabia is one of the wealthiest countries in the ME they have been shown to sponsor these kinds of radicals for political and religious gains. I remember watching a documentary "Islam and the west" and it was stated that Saudi Arabia regards Syria as part of their old historical territory.
Its unfortunate that Muslims have become the scapegoat of the world because of a small minority of rotten eggs. Lets not forget the atrocities committed by other religious groups in the past either.. (WW1, WW2) probably two of the most barbaric wars in history, and the pre-cursor for this mess.
What on earth are you talking about, what makes me qualified? Qualified for what? Reading?
I guess graduating from high school makes me qualified. I can comprehend basic English, no spin required. This isn't ???? poetry. There's no metaphors. It's IN VERY CLEAR ENGLISH. Imagine I had a little black book writing entries about how I'll kill people who don't agree with me. I'd be labelled a sociopath, no?
Since it's labelled a holy book, it gets a pass. How's that for a spin. Enjoy your invisible, fear mongering. hateful god. DON'T TAKE IT THE WRONG WAY, IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE LITERAL LOL.
He got that verse off of google by putting in "Islam is bad" ahah
Because I didn't physically waste my money on some trash a bunch of homophobic, misogynistic, hate spewing, sociopaths wrote thousands of years ago means my quick and easy attempt at picking apart "themohammadman's" BS image is no longer valid?
Actually I googled violent passages in the Quran. Took me about 10 seconds to find one I liked.
