K.H. Ahmed "I can only speak for the ones [Muslims] that I know "

I did not ask for a personal opinion about the few people you know. There are over a Billion Muslims in the world. A people are judged by their words and actions.

I am very aware of the beautiful passages in the Koran.

Say ye: "We believe in GOD, and the revelation given to us, and

to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to

Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord:

We make no difference between one and another of them:

And unto him we have surrendered.

I am also fully aware of the Koran passages which are used by Islamists to justify their hate and intolerance

MOST Muslims believe in the true meaning of Kafir.

Please listen to the difference between yourself and someone who is devout Muslim who faces reality:

"…I, as a Muslim, apologize without equivocation or reservation for the terrible crimes -- small and big -- committed by Muslims against non-Muslims and against Muslims, as in Darfur, who are weak and easy prey to those who hold power in the name of Islam. " -- SALIM MANSUR

MOST MUSLIMS are silent when their brothers commit heinous crimes ALL OVER THE WORLD...against one another and against those of other faiths .

MOST MUSLIMS hate those who offend their religion with truthful criticism.

I will repeat...

A people are judged by their WORDS and ACTIONS.
