    Eitan, You have taken Sura 47 out of context and thus misinterpreted it. If your were to read the rest of the Quran, you would note that Jews per se are not "non believers" nor are Christians. According to Suras 2-6, "non believers" are defined by their actions with regard to the commandments given to MOses. If you uphold the commandments given to Moses then the Quran classifies Jews and Christians as believers having a "covenant" with Muslims. Furthermore, Sura 47, only sanctions killing "non believers" when at war with them. No where, does the Quran sanction murder. In Suras 2-10, it specifically leaves the punishment of non believers in peace time to The Almighty, Omnipotent and Merciful. I am not sure that you are reading the Quran or some propaganda regarding the Quran. Peace. Stephen
