Does the Quran justify violence?

Rod Shaw’s letter (15/11) employs a tactic commonly used by critics of Islam. He misquotes the Koran as saying “terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Koran”. This ignores the fact that Muslims were persecuted for 13 years in Mecca for claiming that God is one. They were driven out of their homes and not left alone, even in Medina. The permission given in the Koran to fight in self-defence was granted to defend Muslims from persecution, and to defend Christians, Jews and people of all faiths from acts of terror.
