Hello friend..! Browsing thru the info. you have posted at your web site about "JEWS", I as a Muslim, am compelled to take down my hat for you.
Anyhow, a slight objection I do have..! I quote the passage you have at your site where the heading is:
"What Famous Men Have Said About the Jews:"
" MOHAMMED, in the Koran "Whoever is a friend of a Jew, belong to them, becomes one of them, God cannot tolerate this mean people. The Jews have wandered from divine religion. You must not relent in your work which must show up Jewish deceit.""
I have been looking thru the different translations of the Quran but nowhere I can find the passage you have quoted above. I have actually looked into the actual Arabic but no luck.. The nearest I could find which includes some "slack" & praise for Christian brethren is below:
005.082 YUSUFALI'S Translation: ""Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.""
We have seen the above quote also. And as you say - the quote was a bit "slack" - in many cases "those who say 'We are Christians'" are TRULY ARROGANT and extremely ignorant as well. However, we would think that he was referring to TRUE Believers, and not those who honor Him only with their lips and titles etc... ( BeWISE)

WOI!!! it has
taken me along time to get this up and out...
Sorry for the Lag!
I really appreciate the correction... It was a thing that I had noticed about the page in question.. seems a bit on the Reactionary and Exagerative side... but there is so much to it that is also on... it covers sentiment well... I wish they had done a better job on the accuracy of the quotes.. Having had some little experience in Translating Torah.. and the book of IaHU-ChaNaN (John) I can appreciate the difficulty of Translating.. but in this case doesn't seem even very close...
This was a piece I picked up out there on the net... it was on a site that was severely threatened with censorship.. and I wanted to preserve the information... this is part of our proccess of investigation... looking into the information that is out there... and collecting the responses... I will be posting more of them as time permits...
We would really like to help get to the bottom of all of this... and value your input!
I have posted your Correction at "http://www.iahushua.com/mohammed.html"
Leaving your name off... but if it is ok I would like to add it back in.
Hoping for you and those Dear ones Blessings of WellBeing past OverFlowing!!
