To all those who like to quote the Qur'an out of context:
There are many quotes I could use, but this sums it up best:
"It may be that Allah will grant love and friendship between you and those who you (now) hold as enemies. For Allah has power (over all things); and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Allah forbids you not, with regards to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just.
Allah only forbids you with, regard to those who fight you for (your) Faith, and support others in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such that turn to them (in these circumstances), that do wrong."
Surah 60 7-9
Any other "selective quoters", I will be deleting your comments as they are the same boring, tedious arguments and just show how much you've missed the point of my last post, which is that the daily practice of Muslims is non-violent and impacts minimally on those around them.
