At the risk of exposing myself as naive and unsophisticated, I would like to ask readers to explain the Qur’anic verses used in the Fitna flim. Please don’t defend the situation by saying that the Bible has comparable verses. It does, but Christians are not going around blowing up themselves and others in obedience to those verses.Why are Muslims?
And please don’t tell me that American supported Zionism is behind it all. That’s too simple. And please don’t tell me to ignore it, like most Muslims are ignoring it. It won’t go away.
Of course, the verses are couched in context, but why are they not abrogated? Surely the potential for misuse should have sparked abrogation.
I’ve been a Muslim for many years, but those verses are problematic for me. The existence of ten positive verses for every verse encouraging violence does not cancel out the verses calling for violence.
I apologize in advance if I’ve offended anyone by calling attention to the elephant the room.
