Feedback: Islam wants infidels dead

I too believe there is a lot to be learned about Islam. For instance, one of the basic tenants of this fabulous religion is that all non-Muslims are infidels, and infidels are to be either converted by the sword, or put to death. These are the words of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, not mine. So much for a wonderful and compassionate religion.

I have no problem with people of different religions, race or creed, etc, until they try to harm me. Pray to whatever God you choose, just leave me out of it. LetÂ’s try not to confuse the basic message of love and forgiveness that Jesus taught with the teachings of Muhammad, who would see all non-believers dead.

Mr. Stettler (Letters, April 16), the practice of clitoridectomy is not confined to Africa, but goes on in various countries in the Middle East as well, and all of these countries are, surprise -- Muslim. So much for tolerance of women rights.
