Try Understand Islam the way you ought to !!

Mr./Miss "Weeping for Pakistan"

It does not seem odd that people respond in such an ignorant manner. Why should one understand a necessarily "Taliban style" government as Khilafah? I fail to understand why "executions in the sports stadium, the terrorist training camps, the absence of medical care for any female" are thought to be hall-mark of Islamic government? The only reason can be absolute ignorance about islamic ideals and seeing only the stereotypes.

Leaving aside the truth about Taliban and their activities, let it be said the Islamic ideals fountain only from the Quran and the Life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Democracy and liberty in Europe:

Yes, people are e.g. free to dress the way they wish as long as they are not muslim women.

One can abuse or show disrespect to an Holy Personality in the name of liberty but cannot dare to even publicaly doubt a much exaggerated historical event like Holocaust.

If U.S. and its Western Allies attack Iraq merely coz of their own speculations, its justified but if Muslims fight back in Afghanistan, Iraq or Palestine, its terrorism.

Three Cheers for your 'democratic' mindset !!!

A friendly advice: Understand Islam in the light of Quran and Life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), not through the glasses of prejudice. Read abt Islam through truly Islamic Writings not polemic ones. And never blindly believe in what the likes of "FOX-News" tell you.
