The quotations listed by chapter and verse in this document are taken from the authorised translation of the QURAN sponsored, financed, and distributed world-wide by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Care has been taken not to quote any injunction or precept out of context. The verses are quoted in their traditional order, for ease of reference to the original Arabic as well as to other The translation helpfully uses square brackets, [for the identification of Jews and Christians, for instance] and explanatory parentheses; these have been retained in the quotations and no additional comments or notes have been inserted except where shown in italics. Th While reflecting on these excerpts, the reader has to bear in mind that, to the faithful, the Holy Book of Islam is the transcript of a tablet preserved in Heaven, eternal and immutable, the final expression of Allah's will; the speaker throughout is Allah. Hence the enormity of the practical implications of its teacIn recent years, much has been heard about 'Islam' as a religion of compassion and peace. With the exception of scholars and students of comparative religion, no one in the West has really taken the trouble to study or read the Quran from cover to cover; none of the Christian, Jewish or others, considered to be 'Unbelieving' religious authorities (Hindus, Buddhists, Animists, Atheists, etc), one has spoken to, has claimed to have any but the most superficial and fragmentary knowledge of its contents. hey certainly had no idea about the contemptuous anti-'Unbelievers', anti-Christian and anti-Jewish dogmas it contains. Most Jews, and certainly most Christians and other 'Unbelievers', have no idea that the Quran is a veritable, relentless tirade against all of them. As will be seen from the following pages, the Quran can only be described as a 'Gospel' of hate. he proposed new UK legislation against incitement to religious hatred has been designed, we are told, "to protect Muslims from religious hatred"; that is why it is being vociferously welcomed by the Council of British Muslims. The Quran does not only incite, but also preaches explicit hatred against Christians, Jews and all other non-Muhammadan Muslims (Unbelievers). Will the new legislation protect the majority of the people of this country from the hatred preached by the imams in Britain's over twelve hundred mosques every Friday? It would be interesting to obtain a legal opinion as to whether the open incitement contained in these Quranic precepts, falls within the remit of the proposed legislation? The tragic fact is, that most decent human beings, find it almost impossible to believe, that an alleged holy book, such as the Quran, could possibly contain so much hatred, anger, injustice and immorality. The inability of ordinary decent people to comprehend, let alone accept the reality, of the totally depraved indifference that is shown by the Quran, towards all human life in general, but vis a vis the 'UNBELIEVERS' in particular, is beyond their imagining. Anyone who has studied the Quran, will know that none of them has been taken out of context, changed, perverted or tampered with. Those who have not read or studied Quran, can easily verify the veracity of the following verses by actually reading them. In summation, in the year 622AD, the first warmongering verse was 'revealed', that which is called 'The Sword Verse' 9:" 5 But when the forbidden months are past then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them beleaguer them and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful" Muhammad in his Quran, declared total and eternal WAR, against all those who do not believe (UNBELIEVERS) in 'Allah AND in Muhammad as his messenger'. “When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads; then when you have made wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.” (Quran47.4). "And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other gods with God [i.e. moshrekin.] wherever ye shall find them; and seize them, besiege them, and lay wait for them with every kind of ambush: but if they shall convert, and observe prayer, and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way, for God is Gracious, Merciful."(Quran 9:5) And as for Christians and Jews who rejected him he has this to say: "Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given and believe not in God, or the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden..."( Quran. 9:29)

I'm sorry but I will never lower myself to racially abuse people in such a way that I have seen done on this site. In the UK we stand for equality and fairness. I beleive it to be the same in the US. If I see my innocent brothers of any faith getting racially abused I will always step in. If someone wants to tell me I am scum then so be it but I will never lower myself to that. We are supposed to be the 'enlightened ones', but I don't see any grace in this.

Quoting the Quran out of context is your old tactic and is not going to work anymore as more and more people are realizing what you and others like you are trying to do. Even my fellow Mylotians who belong to faiths other than Islam have started pointing out to you where you are wrong. If you have found these verses at some anti-Islamic website, I suggest you cross-check them yourself with some authentic source before making any move. I can point out some sources to you hoping this will help you and others who would like to understand the Quran. http://www.isgkc.org/translat.htm

i have a copy of the quran and have read it not with the closed mind of a muslim but as one who MY OWN GOD has given a clear mind i dissagee with it and reject it as holy !so i do not need to go to your biased site my god tells us to keep ourselves appaer and i will follow that command Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15. What harmony is there between Christ and Belial ? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16. What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people." 17. "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.

I doubt that you have ever even seen a hard copy of the Quran. And you do not even know how to spell it correctly. Its not quoran definately. And definately you havre closed your mind to the truth, this is the exact reason you are left in delusions and following everything other than truth. If you had ever gone through the book yourself, you would not have made posts that are quoting it partially and out of context.

Yes this is true mohammed hated the Jewish and Christians because he loved the god of the moon and then got friendly with Jewish people and Christians. In effect he said, "Look, you already believe that the Moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is to accept that the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods." This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not, "Allah is great" but "Allah is the greatest," i.e., he is the greatest among the gods. Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the "greatest" except in a polytheistic context? The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser. That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped. This "Allah" was the Moon-god according to the archeological evidence. Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians, he said that Allah was their God too. But both the Jews and the Christians knew better and that is why they rejected his god Allah as a false god. As he started to preach this Christians and Jewish people didn't agree so mohammed took offense then during writing the quoran he wrote about having hatred towards the Christians and Jewish people and what the muslims should do towards them. He was in favour to nobody except those who agreed with him.
