Tashah said:To address your question... quite a bit. I have read the Qur'an in its Classical Arabic many times. I have studied the Arabic interpretations. I have studied the English translations. I have talked numerous times with Islamic professors at al-Azzam University in Cairo. I live in Israel which has a sizeable Muslim population. I tutor English to Palestinian teens in Samarea and visit their families, and we do oftentimes discuss Islam. I have visited every Islamic nation in the Middle East and North Africa many times with the exception of the Kingdom. I have been to Persia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. I have been to each of the ex-Soviet republics that are majority Islamic.
Let me now ask you PeacefulMuslim, do you know as much about Judaism and Christianity as I know about Islam?
Assala'am 'Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,
when i asked you how much do you know about Islam cuz your post:
agree Peaceful Muslim. People of every stripe and religion commit crime. The contradiction that bothers me about Islam is why has no qualms about severely punishing some offenders (such as rape victims), and yet it is very lenient towards other nefarious offenders (such as arsonists, looters, and killers of civilians). I am stumped.
shows that you don't know that Islam stated punishments for every crime against humanity.. didn't you read the versus in Quran stating such rules?Islam taught us everything Tashash and when i say everything it is literal we see it as a way of life.
but since you are asking this question, aren't there punishments in judaism too??
as for your question, I know what i need to know about both religions and we have been living with christians since forever but i don't believe there are jews around here ..
Tashah the conflict is not between Palestine and the Jews, it is actually between Israel and Palestine and there is a difference.
