GUEST,LynnH BS: A question re Islamic teaching (46) RE: BS: A question re Islamic teaching 28 Aug 14

I recently heard a radio programme about religious fundamentalism, particularly about the IS in Iraq and Syria. The point was made that there is ONE Sure in the Koran which specifically 'orders' the killing of non-believers etc. and there are at least 40 others, possibly even more, which either seriously limit the application of this Sure or even countermand it. As I see it, any religious book- Bible, Koran, Talmud, Communist Manifesto etc.- is open to abuse by those with particular agendas- whatever doesn't suit the agenda will either be ignored or so deviously re-interpreted until it fits, and reading between the lines is taken for granted.
