sounds a bit like the old testament to me...

i have heard that there are equally many messages of love and tolerance in the Koran, so this video may be a bit one-sided (on the other side I never read the book myself)

It is more important to behave towards your fellow human beings with respect for their freedom and individuality, and this is where it all fails miserably. Today it's Islam which has the worse 'record'(gross intolerance, oppressiveness towards women and other minorities, murders in the name of God, you name it...). In the middle ages it was Christianity.

It's not the religion, it's the religious freaks that cause so much trouble. I guess the sooner they meet their maker the better for all of us.

This video is just scared people picking and choosing bits that justify thier insanity. You can do the same with almost any religous text. Please ignore it and please keep in mind that most muslims (like myself) - a normal person...

I agree with peter

It is a bit fast, and it is a bit one-sided. I'll let it stay on so long as David searches for a similar YouTube video containing text from Isaiah about the worms eating sinners and never dying, and the fires burning them never going out, all to a funky dance background track.

Working on something along those lines.

Just got back from Chicago. I'm pooped.

Oh! I visit a local Muslim community, participate in prayers, worked with the Nation of Islam since 1997, worried about backlash on 9/11, and so on. I say this because the points raised come from honest inquiry. I have arrived at a place I did not expect. However, the goal is still the same: Family.

Jacob,knowing of his brother's desire to kill him, bowed seven times as he approached Esau. They reunited in an embrace.

So what?!

The goal and strategy to achieve it must be informed by the reality of the situation.

Bowing as he approached still gave time to access if his brother's heart could change. If not, I doubt he would have completed all the bows before bidding a hasty farewell. I believe the story is around Genesis 32

Interesting. So what is the strategy towards realising religious peace? I think the pope did well on his trip to Turkey recently.
