Lesley Hazleton: On reading the Koran
I am a Muslim. But I can't be a Muslim unless I believe Abraham and his teachings, I can't be a Muslim unless I believe in Moses and the message given to him by God, I can't be a Muslim unless I believe in Jesus and the message given to him by God. These are the prime requirements for me to believe in all the Prophets of God and all the Books sent by him and then believe in the Quran and the Prophet Muhammed. God through the Quran demands this from me.There is only one God and HE has been giving the same message right from the beginning which found its final shape in Quran. This is where the connect lies, our belief in HIM and HIS message. So if we get connected, we can be on the same page. When we get to the same page we have nothing to fear from each other. The opening verses of the Quran in Chapter 2 where the actual message starts, emphasizes constant Communication with the CREATOR and in the same breath and at the same level communication with HIS CREATION. This is the philosophy of our life on this earth. I am a Pakistani living in Pakistan. We have lost thousands of soldiers and more thousands of innocent civilians fighting TERRORISM including Alqaida. We know what it is like to face misguided fanatics and their likes who are exploited in the name Islam. Fortunately they are not many. We know that even when the US and NATO leave Afghanistan, we will still have to face the menace for a long time. And we will God willing be able to control , defeat and eliminate the problem. As suggested , we all need to put a concerted effort together to fight them every where and make our citizens and the world safe from further suffering, as we are all followers of peace loving religions. We must continue this effort.

Lesley Hazleton: On reading the Koran
Ralph Ellis has said that Quran advises that ". Rape of slave girls is permissible." Where did he get the word "Rape' that he uses so easily? I think it is an outcome of the environments that he has lived in. Rape is a vicious crime done in secret, under the cover of darkness. Rape was the only relationship between Ellis's ancestors and their slaves . I can understand why Ellis can conceive nothing else. Quran prescribes 100 lashes for this crime. One son of a Khalifa was found guilty of this and his son was given this punishment. The son died after fifty lashes and remaining fifty were delivered on the dead body. This is how Quran and its followers think of this crime. It was a violent, exploitative , licentious society, and slaves had no rights. Any idiot can see that these verses were to restrict inequities. Lawful to you were ONLY your wives and your OWN slave girls (adopting his interpretations ) and NOBODY ELSE. The slaves were to be treated as part of the family, and the slave who became the master's partner was further privileged. It was all licit and open Ellis has abused Prophet Muhammad and has vilified the Quran. Only a depraved, foul salacious mentality can so misinterpret directions to ban licentiousness as encouraging it. The Quran is followed and revered by a very large mass of humanity and this fellow can insult it so with impunity. What is happening. This is what the Quran has to say about the likes of Ralph "BEHOLD, as for those who are bent upon denying the truth - it is all one to them whether you warnest them or dost not warn them: they will not believe. (6) God has sealed their hearts and their hearing, and over their eyes is a veil; and awsome suffering awaits them".(7) Quran Chapter 2 : 6 & 7
