Hi Brohi,

I do sympathize with you, however I feel you have just misunderstood what Plato etc, are trying to say. You sound like a lovely person, and what's more, of sound mind, they are not trying to convert you, or be deliberately rude to you, they are only trying to open your eyes to the dangers of millitant and political Islam.

I am not as scholarly or intellectual as Plato etc, so I speak in simplistic terms. Brohi, we would all love to live in peace, but it is not Christians, Jews, Buddhists, etc that strap bombs to themselves, or speak of world domination. This is why I suggested you speak to the Mansoors' of this forum. As a Christian I would gladly denounce all religious sects and cults, including Christianity and Islam, replacing them with no denominations, just believers and non-believers, and respecting all. Then we could truly become peoples of the world, and live as one, instead of tearing each other apart in the name of religion. Could you Brohi, denounce Islam?

Kind regards Maria
