The Koran As Seen By Infidels

Quantum Thought has a post that is titled: Unreformed Islam Leaves No Room For Negotiations Or Compromise With Infidels - In it Norm asks:

Why is it that these liberal media "problem solvers" who continually advocate some type or combination of rhetoric and/or negotiations completely ignore the essence of the Islamic religion?

and then states:

We are dealing with a religion that has not secularized it's political views through reformation as has the Western world. We no longer believe in theist governments...for Muslims there can be no other kind. We don't believe in the Divine Rule of Kings...the Pope does not force straying Western rulers to crawl in subjugation before him. The Islamic Mullahs do just that to their politicians.

They want world Islamic domination and total political control. Period. There is no room whatsoever for compromise. Do you need the be reminded of the geographic progress of the Muslims so far? All of the lands that were Assyria was once Christian. It is now all Islam. The Middle East and Africa is going fast.

Thank you Norm for standing up and saying what needs to be said. I would suggest to readers of this post to go check out the rest of Norms posting by clicking on the link above or the title of this post.

Quantum Thought also has a previous post, The Quran Oozes Religious Intolerance. dated: Friday, July 21, 2006 which has a list showing intolerance from the Quran/Koran (Who decides on the spelling of this stuff anyway?) - The following lines are not word for word translations and if you want to check further into this I've got a link below.

Follows some that I plucked out of his extensive list:

Don't bother to warn the disbelievers. Allah has blinded them. Theirs will be an awful doom. 2:6

Allah stamped wretchedness upon the Jews because they killed the prophets and disbelieved Allah's revelations. 2:61

Jews are the greediest of all humankind. 2:96

Only evil people are disbelievers. 2:99

Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don't kill them.) 2:191-2

Jews and Christians believe in idols and false deities, yet they claim to be more rightly guided than Muslims. 4:51

Christians are disbelievers for believing in the divinity of Christ. 5:17

Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 5:73

Fight against Christians and Jews "until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low." 9:29

OK - That is enough for me. - You want more Norm has the full list. -

I wanted to verify that what was listed was actually from the Quran/Koran so I did a little digging. (Thank you Google and Yahoo) - Found a site called Skeptics Annotated Quran which is part of Skeptics Annotated Bible. They also have the Skeptics Annotated Book of Mormon.

Some of the lines above say specifically 'Jews' or 'Christians' and the Koran text does not say specifically unless you read lines above the quoted text to see who is being talked about.

I'm reminded of Rodney King's famous line. "Can't we all just get along?"

It appears the answer is no...
