We are brothers and sisters in humanity.

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: All the prophets are muslim even jesus

Submitted by Samuel Hashemi (Canada), Dec 1, 2007 at 13:53

Some times I wonder, if we all are really Muslems and all other prohets were Muslem becasue they all submitted to God and preached for doing good deeds, why so many of us are called or named infiedels (Kafar) or unbeliers? Why tens of millions of us have been killed in the past because some of us did believe in what we inherited from our fathers?

No doubt, prophet Zarathustra of ancient Iran was one of the very first to teach the oneness of God and good thinking, good deeds and good acts were the base of his teachings. Millions of Iranian sbelieved and practiced such nice religion. Why they had to be invaded, massacred and taken for slavery and all their gold and silver as well as all their young men and women taken for pleasure of the invading Arab armies in the name of Islam?

If we really believe in humanity and believing that we are all Muslem as long as we believe in good deeds and good acts and one God, why so many of the same people are labeled unbelievers and sentenced to death?

Can somebody answer me?
