I would recomend reading Revelations in the NT. It reveals the Karma of Islam and anyone else that doesn't speak the truth about God's beloved, torchered to death, son. Plagues, death, destruction, and 1000 years of not being reincarnated. Only God's people will return to rule with Christ. All of Islam will have to take a 1000 year "time out".

They are moderate Muslims who work with the local community in interfaith.

There is more to the Quran and the Bible, there is a history of when it was written, the group of people it was speaking to, and why. Much that is in the Quran answers question of the early Muslims. It speaks to the problems they had. It needs to be understood in the context of what it was written for.

Misunderstandings come from just picking it up and reading it without understanding what it means.
true enough, but you also cant just rely on anyones interpretation of scriputure soley...i listen to imams, but at the sametime i still take get my own interpretation, and compare it to what i've been told to decide if i agree or not...

when i was telling that person to just read the qua'ran all i was saying is you cant rely on everyones interpretation, because some people bend scriptures for they're own personal gain....because if you know anything aboit mosques, then you know all imams are not moderate, and i just wouldnt want a non muslim who's interested in the deem to be led astray by the wrong guidance....

I for one don't tell folks their religion is wrong. Everyone has their way to God. Some have chosen no faith, its their choice. We find in life what we need including faith.

Muslims are not being attacked its the constant barrage of videos, pictures, ayats, the attack of Jews in sneaky little ways, unending cutting and pasting long lists.

If people want to learn about Islam this forum is not the place. They will go to a library, there are lots of ways to get information.

I don't care if you are Muslim, I do care about the constant barrage of information, which is often meaningless, and biased.

this is the place to learn about islam.....its called religion and philosophy....this is the perfect place to discuss sura and hadith...
