Good that you agree that you must be a totalitarian to be a muslim.

You are clearly lying when you write about what non muslims expect out of a muslim. We dont expect muslims not to critique west. We expect muslims to give up intolerance and hate that are institutionalised in islam (quran, seerah, hadis, shariah).

A moderate muslim is one who would place humanist impulses ahead of islamic totalitarian impulses.

Please check out http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2005/10/finding-moderate-muslims-more-questions.html#Spencer

Why are you so defensive for your tableeghi behavior! Tabligh is not associated with any groups. What you are doing her is clear tabligh - conveying islam and its position.

Where did I say that only Arabs and pakistanis are the problem. Please dont attribute something I never mentioned.

The problem is the totalitarian ideology of islam, not with the people, many of who have either had the misfortune of being born muslims are fooled into following islam.

I personally know of many muslims both in United States and India that are nice, pleasant and agree with my views about the rotten nature of islam. Goodness of many muslim people is inspite of islam and not because of it.

Please dont mix up hospitality and your political/religious views which are clearly islamic. In many of the native eastern traditions, hospitality is a cultural norm and religion independent.

I have lived in US and voluntarily decided to relocate to India. You can see my 2006 posts! Incidentally most of the muslims that immigrate to United States (both legally and many illegally) decide to stay put in that dar-ul-harb rather than return to their islamic dar-ul-islam. Same with muslims that immigrate to india as well from places like Bangladesh.

Dont spin the extremist islamic positions as moderate ones. By doing so you are violating the first sacred law - speak the truth.

May God bless you
