Muslim Appeal For Peace An Invitation to Convert To Islam?

Nearly a week ago, Muslim scholars sent an open letter to Christians calling for unity and peace. The "survival of the world" is at stake, they claimed.

Some of us saw this veiled threat for what it is. I blogged about it HERE. Ryan Evans at The Investigative Project on Terrorism has dissected the message and comes to another conclusion:

In full context, it is clear that this section of the Quran, including 3:64, is a condemnation of Christianity and Judaism and a call for conversion. Why would this verse be included in a call for peace and understanding between Islam and Christianity? The authors and signatories of this letter are among the most learned scholars of Islam in the world. They know the context of 3:64 and its true message, which is exactly why they included it. This letter is not a call for peace. It is a call for conversion.

A Common Word Between Us and You is a Call for Conversion

Read the whole thing. It's an eye-opener.
