Krista,

I wrote the previous before I read your last , then I started to write back and the computer went a little lame so I don't know what went where now - so I will try this one more time.

First, I completely agree with Mansur and I believe that Most muslims would concur - I also believe that of the 1.5billion muslims we discussed that 50% don't care about politics at all - all they care about is where the next meal is coming from-

I'm sorry but as to the article you referred me too regarding Kafir - what can I say - I was going to try to be academic but I can't - it's crap. He throws in some truth, takes off on his own tangents, and then says thats what a whole people believe - I could write the same crap on just about any religion I wanted to - Kafir - its simply a non-believer - all the things he lists are supposed to be Gods punishment, a way of expressing there seperation from ,to use the Christian aspect, "saved" people. It is people like this that make it so hard to create any kind of environment in which people can relate to each other in a civil manner. People like that depress me so much it becomes difficult to write - If I were to take a Christian view or a muslim view of Satan walking the earth - he'd be part of it - Beneath the weak scholarly work there is only venom. I probably shouldn't say that becasue you will need to defend him - but I feel like we were covering important things and the sad fact is he knows exactly what he is doing and well it is just sad.

By the way when I said "parochial" I meant by that local,
