Hi Ianus,

I hope that you have cooled down a bit. cause ouch, that hurt me not a bit. You prove my point of ridicule and insults for what is basically me mentioning my observations of the hate spewing not just from yourself but on lost of websites and blogs, and all you get in reply is SHUT UP WORDS like "racists, Anti-semite, Jew Hater" etc...

Now before you go rabid on me again, may I point out I am none of the above I have friends who are Jews, Sheiks, Hindu's, Christians, Athiests and Agnostics. I went to school with most of these people and have always got along well with them and there families. So please don't infer i'm a racist.

The point I was trying to make is that I was brought up to respect everyone and the Islam you describe is not what was taught to me. I concur that nowadays Wahabbi doctrine is the norm but 40 years ago I had never heard of this. But this is funded by the Saudi Royal Family who's oil money is the funding for this sick doctrine that is invading all our mosques. This is not about religion but about power and all the mosques in England and I suspect the rest of the west are running by Wahabbi devotees.

The clerics are quoting the Quran out of context to convey the extremist messages that they want to convey to stir up bad feelings. For example matyrdom and suicide bombers. I was taught the biggest sin in Islam is to kill unless it is in self defence or if percecuted. It is not permissable to take a life in any other circumstances.

I was also taught not to just take the word of another with regards to knowledge religious or otherwise but to find out for oneself.

As for the history lesson yes it is a bloody history but please don't forget your own bloody history.

The Crusades, hundreds of thousands of Muslems and Jews slaughtered and weath plundered.
The Inqusition 10's of millions murdered
The settling of America 30 million native Americans slaughtered.
World War I many millions died
World War !! over 20 million died Hiroshima and Negasaki the Haulocaust etc.
Korea
Vietnam
Kosova
Serbia
Croatia
Iraq
Afganistan The death toll may never be known as depleated Uranium takes it toll.
Iran ????? possible nuclear strike

Come on play the white man the muslems are bloody amateurs, in 1400 years they have barely scratched the surface of the Wests death toll.

Wow! Soon I'll learn that "as a Moslem" you like Etruscan mythology too, won't you?

> FYI actually I do It hadn't escaped me that your name Ianus or sometimes known as Janus but what I was thinking when I wrote that sentence was the sometimes reference to Janitor.

please don't slate me as a racist, nohing could be further from the truth.

Best wishes
Nowhereman.
