For so many times and years we have heard the same nonsense, about islam being the religion of peace and tolerance, free of all contradictions and the one rising above ALL other religions (isnt that religious racism itself?). For so many naive, pacifist westerners, that is something they will cling to as much as they can. But their belief does not correct a wrong, and little they know.

Q: Why is it, dear westerners, that mosques and islamic temples are erected everyday in the west, while temples of other religions remain rare sites in the muslim world? (not a single church in Saudi Arabia) Do you know that you can be arrested if you're carrying a cross in many muslim countries? Of course you do, but fear lets u disregard this shining truth...

Q: Muslims always refer to the wrongdoings of others to justify their terrorism. Do you know any non muslim nations that has suffered but not resorted to terrorism?? Did the jews blow up german restaurants when they were massacred? Did they slaughter german women and children in the name of 'Divine Vengeance'? But your vision is blurred and you cannot differentiate truth from error.

Q: All the world is a theatre of muslim barbaric actions. All throughout their history they have looted, pillaged and erected mosques where other places of worship existed. They have destroyed the Hindu great place of worship (sorry i cannot recall the name) in the 1600s and erected a mosque in place. The masjid el Aqsa rests on the remains of Solomon's temple. The Hagia Sophia is another witness of their unforgivable barbarism. Not to mention the bombardment of the Buddha statues by the 'peaceloving' Taliban. But you turn away from these evidences, hoping to find salvation in indifference.

The best way I can describle muslims is that they will beat you up until you confess that they are your friend. Know that turning a blind eye to islam will be the most serious and final mistake you shall commit.

Peace.
