in response to reader comment: Islam Is The Cause Of Disruption

Don't be ridiculous. Look into the history of the Phillipines and Southern Thailand. Before the Christian Spaniards came marauding to the various islands which they later called the Phillipines, the local population were Muslims. The last Sultan of Luzon, Raja Sulaiman was murdered brutally by the Christian Spaniards. Muslim fighters who were apprehended alive were locked into cells built along the Pasiq river. When the tide rose up, the prisoners slowly drowned. Can you imagine how much they suffered? Today, the descendants of yhe forcibly converted Christians proudly present to visitors to the Phillipines how their great granfathers who were Muslims were locked up in the cells to die.

The Muslims in Southern Thailand suffered no less. Most the Muslim leaders in the four Muslim states who led the opposition to the occupation by the Buddhist authorities were systematically rounded up and they disappeared without trace. This happened right up to the 60's. What wrong did the Muslims do? The Malay states of Pattani, Bangnara , Setol and Yala were theirs. The Buddhists who happened to be in the four Malay states have led very normal lives under the rule of the Muslim Sultans. Why should the non-Muslims create problems to the Muslims?

Today, the powerful non-Muslim nations are everywhere trying to control and suppress the Muslim nations. Somehow and inexplicably, God has been very gracious by giving oil to most of the Muslim states (including Sudan and Somalia in Africa). Is God very discriminating against the non-Muslim nations? Or is it because the Muslims are creating a lot of problems, so God reward them with oil, uranium etc etc? Please look into this seriously.
