Since Salman Rushdie wrote his novel the Satanic Verses they have not changed and will never change (since the Quran is the word of Allah). More and more they influence also our lives in the ”west”. Is that really what we desire for our children and future generations?
According to the Quran, people who refuse to acknowledge Allah as the one true god are unbelievers destined for hell: ”Verily Allah has cursed the unbelievers and prepared for them a blazing fire” (Quran 33:64). Muslims therefore are superior to all others:
”Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind… believing in Allah… If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.” (Quran 3:110).
”Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers… their abode will be the fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers.” (Quran 3:151).
As for specific passages about the Jews, the Quranic passages 5:60 and 7:166 talk of the Jews being cursed and transformed by Allah into apes and pigs: ”…those who incurred the curse of Allah and his wrath, those of whom some he transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil…” This is the reason Jews today in large parts of the Muslim world are commonly called apes and pigs. Furthermore, ”Jews and pagans [are] among the worst of the enemies of the believers”. (Quran 5:82).
The Jews are described as hypocrites (Quran 2:14), and ”slayers of His [Allah’s] messengers” (Quran 2:61), who are ”cunning” and ”hate to see your success and rejoice if any misfortune befalls you” (Quran 3:120). These examples constitute only a part of the innumerable examples in the Quran and the hadiths, not to mention the writings of Islamic scholars.
