I have also dealt with western societies, and I know that there are people who respect others, but when someone calls us terrorists because we defend back, because our people die everyday from American troops and Israeli soldiers, then this is too much to endure. I have known that around 2 million iraqis died since the start of Iraq war, is that equal to the 4000 americans who died? Is that because I am a Muslim that I worth nothing? Should all non-Muslims be so superior and Muslims be inferior? what a freedom of speech.

and I need to know something, why should people intefere in our religion, and why they want to hurt our feelings in the most things that we love? why they don't deal with us without such inteference? why everytime you are discussing politics with someone, the discussion ends up: your prophet is so and so?

we are Muslims and Islam is a fact, we have our religion and you have your opinions keep them for your selves, but for people to co-operate on this earth, they have to respect one another and know the limits of each other.

You are so proud of America? is not US that interfere with all middle east's stuff to take other benefits. If the middle east didn't have any resources, US would have never interfered. US has destroyed our lands and our people. US has forced the british to declare Israel without any respect to the palestinians, we have suffered a lot from its interference.

It is the blame on Muslim presidents that they are so weak, and the blame is next on us, and once people are religious enough they are able to get US out, because strong Muslims do not fear any one but God.

Tell me that you were there with the prophet and you knew that he didn't speak to God, you are saying it with a 100 percent confidence, where did you people learn to do that?
why should I believe what you believe, and you don't? does it sound wierd?

The conclusion is: we deal with the western world as a black box and they should do the same, with no one interefering in the other's matters, and each one respecting the other's limits, and why is Islam the only religion that is attacked in this way? why its beleifs are attacked in that manner? it sounds weird to me.
