in response to reader comment: This arrogance I cannot ignore!

Dear Seamus Dafydd Dives Macnemi,

Many thanks for your kind words. You have a right to your opinion as I to mine. I will make one observation and that is you haven't listened very well. My reply to you is as under. First off if the truth raises hate and poison in your bioling blood, then you haven't accepted that there are others who do not think like you or hold the same truths. If that makes me a grave digger then so be it. The West has tried to dig our graves for the last 1100 odd years on one pretext or another. I am not here to hurl my shoe at you, call you names or shut my ears.Whether I love my God in heaven or not is between him and me and should not concern you. I am here to talk and tell you something. It may be unpleasant but it has to be said.

If I have said anything, it is because of my religion Islam, that is constantly being targeted. It is being done so in this age, because of the stand we have takena stand that does not pleaser the West about Israel. We were not responsible for Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen Treblinka or Sobibor. Nor have we washed the streets of Jerusalem with blood as the Crusaders did. I have no fight against Christianity or Judaism or Hinduism or Buddhism or any religion you may care to enumerate.. I will speak out and if necessary fight and die in defence of my religion. Have you heard me say any religion other than mine is bad or wrong? What gives you the right or for that matter anyone the right to pick on my religion or put it down or even sit in judgement on it? It is mine and not yours.Haven't youi heard of the saying "To each his own and God for us all?"

The Shari'a is no more than a legal interpretation of what would be the correct way to live as Islam is more than a religion ,it is a complete way of life. I don't tell you or anybody how to live or what you should believe. Why shouild you or anybody object to how we Muslims choose to live? Who gave you the right?

If you are a Christian, then know that islam is the only religion that accords respect and accepts Jesus Christ as a Prophet of God. We accept the immaculate conception, and even have a chapter in the Quran e Karin named after his mother, the Virgin Mary and hold that she is without blame or sin. We accept the Christs miracles and his teachings as divinely inspired. We do not accept that he is the Son of God as you do if you are a Christian. We maintain the Christ sits in heaven at thr right hand of the Almighty. The Prophets of the Jews are our Prophets. WE have no fight with jews we have a fight with Zionism.

I am no follower of Bin laden or any extremist organisation. I am a proud Muslim who is quite willing to take part in the Cruisade that has gone on for over 1100 years and I am ready to for you anytime of your choice, with your sword, scabbard and all.

Let me add here you don't know what Jehad is. If you did, you wouldn't be saying what you are. Firstly, there are two types of jehad. The Greater Jehad is against one's self and the lesser jehad isto fight in the way of Allah(swt). Which one are you talking about?

You will note that we Muslims are not unwilling to die for what we believe in. It is better to die honourably than to live on bent knees or take dictation from those who do not let us believe and live as we choose.. And you better believe it. You have examples of Iraq and Afghanistan in front of you. Eight years of fighting and losing hasn't taught you that it takes more than weapons to fight. It takes a man willinmg to live by and die for what he believes in. Keep this in mind and close to your heart.
