All religions contain violent language. We are selctively utilizing, what we want . If we used "an eye for an eye" most people would only have one eye.

The author does not make the distinction between religion and ideology. That's a pitty.

Not correct Greta, The Bible's early harshness is tempered by the New Testiment teachings of peace and tolerance.

But the most violent and destructive parts of the Koran come in the last Suras. And Islamic scholars says that the later parts of the Koran override the earlier parts. The Koran is a violent and hateful work.

If we used "an eye for an eye" most people would only have one eye.

I get so tired of this smug, ignorant drek.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth is a Biblical injuction for proportional judgement.

When one deals with Islam, one doesn't only deal with the Koran. You also have to take into account the Hadith.

"WordNet (r) 2.0"
Hadith
n 1: (Islam) a tradition based on reports of the sayings and
activities of Muhammad and his companions
2: (Islam) the way of life prescribed as normative for Muslims
on the basis of the teachings and practices of Muhammad
and interpretations of the Koran syn: Sunnah, Sunna

No need to interpret, it was done twelve centuries ago.
