Glad to have you back with us Robert.
I recently read that the earlier parts of the Koran were forgiving
of the Christian and Jews at least (if not other religions) but as
Islam began to be spread through conquest the later writings in the
Koran began to demand harsher treatment of the non-believers.
But of course I'm not an expert on it either.
