Thanks For the, Er, "Clarification," Toronto Sun

This letter to the editor appears in the Toronto Sun:
It is rather ironic that these Islamist fanatics do not seem to believe that their almighty Allah is powerful enough to punish those who offend Him. They think they have to do it for Him. I would hope the Qur’an has a page similar to the Bible’s Romans 12:19, to quote: “Vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord.”
Peter Smit
Here's how the Sun responds to it (as always, in parentheses):
(The Qur’an condemns the taking of innocent life. The problem is with how Islamist fanatics interpret “innocent”)
No sireee, Mo. The problem is the jihad imperative written into the Qur'an and how, from the get-go, it has inspired generations of by-the-book Muslims to spread their faith by the sword. Why should out era be immune from this effort, especially when current socio-political conditions almost guarantee its success?
