So, its clear that the good Imam and the good Rabbi want to promote peaceful co-existance. I do too. But what are we to do with the text in the Koran. Remember the Koran's marching orders are not guidelines; they are mandatory. Of course, what is mandatory is the marching orders, properly interpreted.. The verse says that "Just as a Muslim is to worship Allah, behind him is a Jew and he should be killed.", Th good Imam asserts that a literal interpretation is " ... libelous because Islam is completely opposed to encouraging hatred between fellow man." So given that approach to interpretation, what exactly does the verse mean?
