"It's not Turki, its the feeling of every Muslim who hates Israel more than anything.."
Is this hate on behalf of 'Allah'? Has Allah recommended it to/for you? Allah should catch up on what is well known in medical and psychiatric circles - which is that hatred in the end actually harms the hater. It results in higher blood pressure, negative emotions, increased risk of heart attack , higher norepinephrine and corisol levels in the blood and has even been hinted at being a progenitor of some cancers. And we all know how corrosive it is in terms of human relations.

."........We find so many people in the Islamic countries standing up, spelling out their anger, their wishes, their anger to crush the problematic nation of Jews. ..."
Yes, we've noticed. But we've also noticed that it's only in the Muslim countries that the nation of the Jews is so 'problematic' to such a great extent.. We ask ourselves 'why is that?'. Could it have something to do with your religion do you think?

Most normal people are happy to live and let live. Have you ever heard of that concept - is it too radical for you? Are the Jews actually harming you personally? Have you ever actually met one, living there in Pakistan?

"...............Every second American is now a defaulter, poker and bankrupt. "

Besides that being an untrue statement - I don't think a person living in Pakistan should start criticising some Americans for being poor.

"........Islam is shedding the blood on and on continuously to save the world "

reminds me of that old bumper sticker 'fighting for peace is like f&*^ing for virginity.

".....from the claws of blood drinking monsters."

Shades of Godzilla! Are they related to Buraks?

"........These monsters kill your dreams, your ambitions, your life savings and more over your peace of mind."

the monsters are creatures in the vast unlit regions of your subconscious. They do not exist in the real world. You need to work on yourself. If your peace of mind can be destroyed by phantoms - then you never had true peace of mind in the first place. But that is no surprise given what you believe in.

"Come and see the family unity, mutual respect, dignity and simplicity of the true Islamic society. Right now you need to find those people among Muslims as majority is not practicing Islam in its true spirit."

Which block in which city in which Muslim country is (or ever was)? Or are you just projecting your fantasies?

".......I am hopeful that Islam would come out of the test period very soon...The world would then be freed from the ugly claws of Interest and piled up debts."

But as we become less reliant on oil and we buy less fromsaudi Wahabists - and all the sheiks spend their money on hookers and booze and 767's in the West - where's the money going to come from to support such Islamic fantasy? Don't suggest Western Muslims - as they get all their money from the western capitalist system they live amongst - i.e. the system you'd like destroyed.
