Tactics


The extremists and islamophobes use the same tactics. Both take verses (Ayat) from the Qur’an at face-value and in isolation. Never providing anything of substance. Such as – context, a logically valid exegesis, and so forth.
 
Only difference between the two are their motives. The islamophobes are trying to direct people away from and/or against Islam. Whereas the extremists in many cases are trying to justify criminal acts to further a political agenda.
 
Whether Muslim or non-Muslim we should all abhor this and take a firm stand against it. 1. These kind of tactics are not intellectually  honest, and 2. they stymie true intellectual discourse.
