9/20    Some words of wisdom from the Quran:

        [at-Taubah 9:123] O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers
        who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that
        Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him).

        [an-Nisa' 4:74] Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life
        of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he
        slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.

        [8.12] When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore
        make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of
        those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off
        every fingertip of them.
        \_ So who says Islam disapproves violence?
           \_ The whole problem here is that you are reading these things
              litterally, rather than metaphoically. Its like pretending
              that poetry is really prose.
              These things are really about internal conflicts not external
              \_ I get it.  Thanks.  Maybe the Islamic extremists are also
                 interpreting these literally so as to justify their actions.
