By the way, whoever you are, "books" can be written by anyone ...

I read "books" printed and authored by a free world (and we are counting the last seconds even there), so because you read "books' doesn't mean a thing knowing what part of the world you get them from. I can read yours as well as mine which gives me a better platform from which to judge truth.

You have a myopic viewpoint from anything you read. If you want an anchor from which to judge any literature, then you have to read a little of everybody's literature. You have no perspective. Read the Bible written on men's hearts (from the Middle East) and you will se how narrow your perspective is. The Quran is an obvious distortion of the original words of Jesus Christ. Read enough of both and you will know not western, Arabic, Africkan, Oriental, or any national truths, but the real truth of God. The U.S. didn't produce Jesus Christ. Europeans far more educated than the tribes of the Middle East interpreted the original words of the teachings of God & Christ. For a time, the U.S. subscibed to them. We can no longer make that claim. You keep attacking my nation as if I'm promoting that. I'm not.
