We have discussed this before...
I agree with her.
ME AVN FAN, she touches on the religion and rightfully so, she mentions some of the malcontent Islam have, for us "people of the book".
I have personal dislikes with the following quotes:
O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. [al-Ma'idah 5:51.11]
- Regarding infidels (unbelievers), they are the Muslim's "inveterate enemies" (Sura 4:101). Muslims are to "arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere" (Sura 9:5) for them. They are to "seize them and put them to death wherever you find them, kill them wherever you find them, seek out the enemies of Islam relentlessly" (Sura 4:90). "Fight them until Islam reigns supreme" (Sura 2:193). "Cut off their heads, and cut off the tips of their fingers" (Sura 8:12).
So I see her effort, as a means to combat people who might use such words from the scripts, to justify murder or hatred.
I believe all humans are good, but people can get lost, and I think she has a point, when she emphasize of the of the intollerant aspects of Islam, or how it can be used for intollerance.
The Arabic word she use is Dhimma and explanation for it is here:
For Muslims, there exist two kinds of non-Muslim enemies... kafir (non-believers in Islam) and ahl al-kitab (People of the Book). Kafir, such as Buddhists and Hindus, must either convert to Islam or face execution. People of the Book include Jews and Christians. These people need only submit to Muslim authority to avoid forced conversion or death. Although they may keep their original faith, their status becomes dhimmi (a "protected," yet inferior non-Muslim status). So instead of outright forced conversion or slaughter, the Christians and Jews would be allowed to remain somewhat unmolested as long as they acknowledged the superiority of the Muslim.
