Naomi, I have a question about Islam TO YOU.

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: Learn before You Talk

You said:

"... In Islam we believe that everyone is first initially born Muslim and are later raised by their parents as something else or continue as Muslims"...

1. Everyone means the whole world, meaning ALL babies are born muslims and then their parents choose whether or not they will be muslims, for ex. Parents are Evangelicals, and then the child is born muslin and then becomes Evangelical.

OR

2. Everyone means all babies that are born from Muslim families only and later raised by their families for example apostates to Islam, or the baby wants to follow Evangelism than he is Evangelicals and to islam that's "ok".

Because, if the first hypothesis is the one you meant, now I understand why ...

...On the other side:

If everyone means number 2 then accept my apologies.

Yet, if it is # 1, which seems indeed, you did not stop b/c the "journalist" is incompetent as you meant (Dr. Pipes is NOT incompetent), but b/c you got shocked in how much the west already knows about Islamism and how far we are aware of your Al Taqyia.

...

You know I love when Islamists start their speech with Learn before you talk...it is the proxy of the non wise... And I chalenge you for a round against Dhimmi No More.

Submitting....
