people of the book
an interesting example of the latter type of falsification
tests contained in the quran is the verse which mentions
the relationship between the muslims and the jews.
the verse is careful not to narrow its scope to the relationship between individual members of each religion,
but rather, it summarizes the relationship between the two groups of people as a whole. in essence, the quran states that the christians will always treat the muslims better than the jews will treat the muslims. indeed, the full
impact of such a statement can only be felt after careful
consideration of the real meaning of such a verse. it is true that many christians and many jews have become muslims, but as a whole, the jewish community is to be viewed as an avid enemy of islam. additionally, very few people realize what such an open declaration in the quran
invites. in essence, it is an easy chance for the jews to prove that the quran is false - that it is not a divine revelation. all they have to do is organize themselves,
treat the muslims nicely for a few years and then say, "now what does your holy book say about who are your best friends in the world - the jews or the christians? look
what we jews have done for you!"
that is all they have to do to disprove the quran's
authenticity, yet they have not done it in years. but, as always, the offer still stands open!
