Frahad,

I am definitely biased, toward truth. Objectivity includes seeking the truth even when it may not be convenient, and not letting prejudice, politics or favoritism get in the way. This is what I've gone through for years of study, and it hasn't always been easy. My comments stem from years of objective observation, reading, studying, discussing, and especially praying. I wish Mohammad was actually a prophet of our Creator, because the world would be a better place without followers of a false prophet!

You are completely missing the point in focusing on the drive from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain for mass. It was simply a firsthand illustration of the complete lack of religious freedom in a prominent Muslim country, which contrasted with a Muslim apologist's false argument. I started out my quest nine years ago to determine what Islam was from the position that maybe Mohammad was a prophet given to the Arab people. I found out that Mohammad was not a prophet of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which is the God I worship and know.

Your statement that "Muslims would neither abuse Christianity nor the Bible on forums such as this" could not be further from the truth. For instance, your own Koran identifies Christians as idol worshippers that must be converted. Mohammad plagiarized the Old and New Testaments stories and then twisted it to a politically and socially appealing from which the Ishmaelites would readily adopt. Speaking the truth must involve criticizing Islam and Mohammad. It's not fun, but it must be done.

Each and every Muslim tells a lie with the Islamic profession of faith "There is no God by Allah, and Mohammad is his messenger." This is wrong on both counts. There is only one God, Yahweh, and there were many prophets who wrote His inspired Word, and Jesus is the only begotten Son of God and Lord. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar and antichrist according the prophet John. Muslims lie when the truth is inconvenient. In this case, they are being neither objective, fair, honest nor acting like the Children of the true God.
