At least in most cases of theft, the product stolen is valued as is, and not changed in any way. Islam not only stole from other faiths, it twists and bends the portions stolen into something almost unrecognizable. They sound familiar, but upon closer scrutiny, they are completely alien.
Saving All of Humanity in Islam? Not!
By Sonia Bailley
How typically deceptive it is when Muslims refer to koranic verse 5:32 claiming that saving one human being is like saving all of humanity. They are attempting to prove that Islam cares about people of all religious faiths. It doesn’t.
First, verse 5:32 is Jewish in origin – it comes from Judaism, from the Jerusalem Talmud (Sanhedrin 4:1, 22a), where it does refer to people of all religious faiths. This is far from the only Islamic verse or concept snatched from Judaism. Others were pilfered from Christianity and Zoroastrianism.
When you cherry-pick from verse 5:32, as most Muslims do, it seems to condemn the killing of ALL humans, and to apply equally to ALL people. However, when understood in its entirety, this koranic verse permits and encourages the killing of non-Muslims. Furthermore, this verse is meant for only Jews to follow; they are referred to explicitly at the beginning of the verse: “we decreed for the Children of Israel”.
The verse states that killing (by Jews) is permissible under two conditions: (a) when a Jew kills for a justifiable reason, perhaps in self-defense (“for reasons other than manslaughter”), and (b) when a Jew kills a disbeliever, that is, someone who is not obedient to Islam (“corruption in the earth” or “fitna”, which occurs when there are disbelievers of Islam).
The analogy of “all of mankind has been killed” when a human is killed, applies only when a Jew kills a follower of Islam. According to verse 5:32, a life is worthy ONLY when it follows Islam. This is why parts of the verse are always purposely omitted by proselytizers of Islam when attempting to convert others.
