[quote=Sirach14]I agree with the above, but that is not my point.
Many who read the Koran, will draw the conclusion that Islam is not a peaceful religion-- based on the Koran
If a Muslim then reads the Old Testament, especially these verses:
( See 2 Ki 8:12; 15:16, 18; Hos 10:14; 13:16; Am 1:13; Na 3:10)
will the Muslim then conclude that the religion of the Jews, is not a peaceful religion, based on the OT?
No they will conclude that from their twisted world view fed to them from their education system and media. Actually the question is hardly relevant anyways - access to Christian or Jewish literature including the Hebrew bible is not permitted in the majority of Muslim countries.
Westerners I think fail to realize that every printed word, radio or television program has to the muster of government censors. Therefore when an editorial appears in an Egyptian newspaper that says Jews are dogs and pigs and there is a worldwide Zionist conspiracy to destroy Islam or there is an 8-part, prime-time miniseries produced based on the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” ,a Czarist forgery referenced often by Adolph Hitler in Mein Kamph, those words were printed and the program produced and shown with the full consent and knowledge of the Egyptian government. They have no free press, it’d downright Orwellian.
What do Muslims think? Whatever their governments tell them to think.
