"Time and again, I have heard - from Muslims and non-Muslims alike - that Islam calls on Muslims are to hate non-Muslims (Jews, Christians, Hindus, etc). I have even seen scripture being quoted to that effect, and I have even listened as Muslims — deeply devout ones — have said to me, while keeping a straight face, that I am supposed to hate all those who are not Muslim.
I do not buy it one bit."
It's a beautiful article that poses more questions than it answers... but in the process feeds my hope for improved muslim/non-muslim relations. The author not only speaks from a place of faith, but a place that looks very familiar to those of us who inhabit the political center.
( PS... I wish I knew the story the author alludes to when he brings up the fall of Noah's wife... anyone have details? )
