"If somebody knows that something is faulty of course that person will not want that thing"

EXACTLY!!

"When we experience problems with that faulty thing then we realize it and throw it out. It's the same with religion."

Yes its is..If Islam is the faulty religion then everybody would have left it ,but thats not whats happening more and more people are embracing Islam.For eg the time of September 11 until November, in just two months more than 35,000 Americans embraced Islam!! (CAIR report 2001). This covers every sector of society, economic backgrounds, professions and races.

One would wonder why after 911 the increase was so great, as the natural inclination would be for a decrease not an increase. What made these people embrace Islam when these are Americans, for the most part born and raised in Christian America not Arab or Muslim emigrants? Islam does not propagate itself through healing crusades, music crusades, street corner evangelism or any of the usual strategies used by Christian and non-Christian organizations and churches.

"Of course the standard of judging a religion by its followers will be applicable to all religions"

Thats wht u think not every1 and thats a bad anology of religion!Neways since u said that I can assume how ur religion is ..

"Do you dare to call the followers of your religion as an infidel instead of the true follower if they spread violence? "

I had already said in my previous mail Poeple you have spoken about doesnt represent Islam

They have manipulated religion to serve their own purpose.PLS Blame it on the tendencies for males to fight for dominance if you like!!!

But yes ofcoze I call my religion the true religion why? bocoze ISLAM, IN ITS TRUEST FORM, AND NOT THE DISTORTED VERSIONS THAT THE MEDIA PORTRAYS AND BAD MUSLIMS PRACTISE, PRESENTS WITH IMMENSE REASON TO TRUST IT AND BELIEVE IN IT

Islam does not make me or any true muslim doubt because it has proven to be perfect in every aspect. MUSLIMS ARE NOT PERFECT - WHICH IS PERHAPS WHAT PERPETUATES THE HATRED THAT THE WEST FEELS FOR ISLAM, BUT ISLAM IS.

"Well, I do and I will speak it out loud. Why? Because my belief (and of course my religion) teaches me that the truth of a religion is judge by its followers' behavior."

IS IT??you mean to say that you dont need others to learn your scripture but just look around wht your fellow christians are doing and learn?GR8!!

Tellme how many of you are following your religion perfectly??

Go and ask your fellow christians are they following their religion perfectly?most of them dont even know what the their scriptures says..and then you go and speak out loud...

How many iraqis are being killed by american soldiers?Any human being can justify the killing and destruction of one great country, Iraq , by America in the name of WMD and which was proved later as a big lie? Bush is a Born-Again Christian. Bush is a terrorist or humanist?

in terrorism, associated in the media mostly with the Muslims, it is the Christians that hold the record when it comes to the number of children and other innocent people killed. The Oklahoma bombing, carried out by people professing to be Christians, claimed more completely innocent victims than any other single act of terrorism. Terrorism in Northern Ireland which is a direct result of a sectarian conflict between Catholics and Protestants and is often supported by the religious leaders, has probably killed more children and innocent people than Middle East terrorism.The massacre beyond comparison happened and still happening in Chechnya and the innocent people including women and children are brutally killed and raped every day,who is doing that ?The massacre beyond comparison happened in Bosnia and Kosovo and the innocent people including women and children are brutally killed and raped.Anybody can forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki ? Who used weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the history of mankind, Muslims or Christians?Anybody can forget Hitler? He was a Roman Catholic. Anybody can forget Vietnam War and the chemical weapons used to kill poor Vietnamese? Who did this, Muslims or Christians? Anybody can forget Stalin who killed millions of people in Russia ? He was a Christian. Any civilized man can forget AbuGharaib prison torture in Iraq.Who did this all ???the followers of ur religion..

Now frm your fellow christians what they had been doing around the world its understood wht your religion teaches...Now you dare to call the followers of your religion as an infidel instead of the true follower if they spread violence????

Now you can speak out very much LOUD!!!

"If you think your religion is a good one"

yes ofcoze..its is..

"show it to the world"

I dnt have. to .... becoze they already knw thats y so many number of people are coming to islam...

"Ask your fellow followers to bring good things to the world"

pls ask your followers of ur religion to do the same..

Those who knw what is true Islam they had, are ,and will always bring good the world.
