have taken the time to read the Koran and all its
footnotes. There are many misleading ideas in The
Blanket on just what it is about. There is possible
salvation for the non Muslem. A prayer is contained
when if recited daily, by any believer in one true
god, will ascend that person from hell to paradise.
The messenger allows revenge in kind for transgression.
However, the message is clear that God prefers mercy
over vendetta. Without mentioning Jesus, his teaching
is evident in the overall concept. He is considered
as being born from a virgin Mary, and will judge mankind
from God's side as in the Christian bible. Believers
in one true God are not considered infidels and are
not to be harmed, unless they disrespect Islam as
in the cartoons. A Muslem is allowed to buy kosher
food blessed by a rabbi.
I can say is read the Koran if you want to understand
how it is used to undermine the thinking of Muslems
who can be swayed as to its true concept of love of
God, forgiveness, being satisfied with what God gives,
and salvation by prayer and good deeds.
