I am not Islamic. I don't know that much about this religion, but I want to learn. I'm sorry if some of these questions offend you, please, just bear with me.
What does this verse mean to you? From what I've gathered, this is what inspire extremist groups like Al Qaeda, right? Why is it that some Islamic people follow this, and then most of them don't?"Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush" (Surah 9:5)
Also, I've heard that some where in the the Qu'ran it says that its alright to lie if it promotes Islam, is this true?
Aslo, what makes you think that Islam is right and other religions are wrong?
