    "Nihil est peius iis, qui paulum aliquid ultra primas litteras progressi falsa sibi scientiae persuasionem induerunt." No doubt you recognize this quote from M. F. Quintilianus. How well have you read the texts which you mention? Islamic scholars argue constantly about the interpretation of the writings. As for racism and the teaching of hatred of others, I have read the Old Testament and the Babylonian Talmud. The old stories chronicle deeds of massacre and thievery against those who have not been chosen by the lord. Kill all the Amalekites, take all the land from the Canaanites, they are dogs. Touch not a Samaritan, they are unclean. "She'lo assani goy." And the contempt includes the shiksa, the unclean animal, the abomination. Before you point the finger at other religious writings, reread the hatemongering texts supposedly inspired by a divine being who "chose" a people and then told them that all others will be their servants.
