The Ambivalence of the Scrolls and the Koran

I have been struck of late with the parallels between the Scrolls found in the Judean wilderness and the Koran.  For they both speak with a forked tongue. On the one hand they speak of peace, kindness and good things, and on the other they glorify war. Thus they send out confusing messages.  Both testify to a false religion (not that I have found a true religion).  

The militant, blood thirsty theologies of the Koran and the Scrolls is there for all to see.
