I'll leave it to better experts on the Koran than me to explain the passage Qazwini has in mind, but I will at least quote it in its context.
"We welcome you to Dearborn, the Muslim capital of the West,as I call it," Qazwini said. "God says in the Quran, 'You will certainly find the nearest in friendship to those who say they are Christian.' Jesus and Mohammad are none other than but two channels to God. Let us open our houses of worship to each other." ("Archbishop meets with Muslim leaders at Dearborn mosque").
Sounds nice enough. But the next verse says this: "But those that disbelieve and deny Our revelation shall become the inmates of Hell." Which sounds more like the Islam we have grown to know and love.
Thou wilt surely find the most hostile of men to the believers are the Jews and the idolaters; and thou wilt surely find the nearest of them in love to the believers are those who say 'We are Christians'; that, because some of them are priests and monks, and they wax not proud, and when they hear what has been sent down to the Messenger, thou seest their eyes overflow with tears because of the truth they recognize. They say, 'Our Lord, we believe, so do Thou write us down among the witnesses. Why should we not believe in God and the truth that has come to us, and be eager that our Lord should admit us with the righteous people?' And God rewards them for what they say with gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein dwelling forever; that is the recompense of the good-doers. [5:82-85] >
And that's how we roll in the Muslim capital of the West.
