We have all heard a lot about Muslims and terrorism.
I wanted to know the truth. I wanted to know what THEY said about THEIR religion. Please correct me if I am not reading any of this correctly:
“9.5”: So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
“9.29”: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
These (granted “selected”) passages don’t paint a nice picture of the Koran.
Is it possible that the “terrorists” or so-called “extremists” are really just “Orthodox” Muslims?
