To the editor of the Wall Street Journal:
The sentimental article on “Mother Mosque” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (12/21) has Imam Tawil saying “Our main goal is to educate the public about Islam”. Does this include educating the public about the Koran which is taught and preached every day in every mosque in the world, including his? Here are just a few of those passages from the Koran which every non-Muslim needs to know:
“Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve.” (8.55)“The unbelievers are your inveterate foe.” (4:101)
“Mohammed is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” (48:29).
“Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends.” (5:51)
“The true believers fight for the cause of God, but the infidels fight for the devil. Fight then against the friends of Satan.” (4:76)
“We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.” (3:150)
All Muslim terrorists cite these and many other passages from the Koran to justify their murderous deeds, so it behooves us all to know what they are talking about. Will Imam Tawil help us to learn?
