You are still not getting it. Nothing of what you are talking about is any part of my life. I am not a city man. I live in a small village high in the mountains. I am a farmer and a student of religions and history. And I am a very religious man. I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN PERIOD. I follow the traditions of my fore fathers and we do not call ourselves by any name that you could know. We simply believe in the G-D of heaven and that's the end of it. We neither have nor need prophets of any kind. We do not have priests or imams as each man is his own priest and each woman her own priestess. We pray when ever we feel the need and at no specific time. For us every act, even the most seeminlgly insignificant and mundane act, can be a prayer.

When we build our houses, each nail driven is driven with a blessing. We work amongst ourselves to make our homes a fit place for the Holy Spirit to dwell in. We do not go about calling for the death of strangers and foreigners. We do not go into the lands of others to steal from them. If we go at all we go to help, to bring medicines and tools to help them build their homes and we bring ourselves to teach and to help those others to lift up themselves. We are healers and teachers not thieves, whoremongers and murderers! DO NOT EQUATE ME WITH ANY OF THE CHRISTIAN WACKOS! Thank you!

You want all of the conveniences of the modern world. Who do you think makes them? Certainly not Pakistan or Afganistan. We have plenty of our own oil and gas. We do not need yours. It is only due to the stupidity of the government that we are not using more of what we have. We the people are not to blame for your plight. It is the governments of your countries who want American dollars who insist upon making us buy your oil and gas and these decisions have nothing to do with us. They are made by the big companies and the government behind our backs without our haveing any say in the matter.

If it was not for us you would be speaking Russian and your religion would be forbidden to you by the atheist Communists who would like nothing better than to destroy all religion. Further more, I have seen Pakistanis demonstrating in your streets and burning American flags. It doesn't matter one jot where Osama Bin Laden came from. The simple fact of the matter is that he was given sanctuary in your country and your own countrymen are still helping him and still plotting to do me and my family harm no matter how far we live from the places and ways you mention

You can talk all you want about live and let live but until you start doing it I'm going to continue to call the shots on you. When you become willing to let Israel live and to let my people live as well than I will be willing to listen to you. Before 9/11 we didn't have our armies in your country. There were only some business interests and some CIA agents there to help the Afganis fight the Russians. The only reason our armies are in your country today is because you give help to Bin Laden. It was Pakistan that set up the Taliban in Afganistan and Pakistan in many ways helped Bin Laden carry out his plans against us by allowing him to continue his war from your country. If you do not want us in your country then quit making excuses and get rid of him for us. It is your country that is now one of the biggest producers of terrorism and terrorists in the world. What are you doing about that?

Again, I do not see why we should welcome the likes of you in our country when all you do is spit on us and call us terrible names. But America is suppose to be a sanctuary country for all who come seeking freedom so we cannot be that if we do not allow you to come here. Personally I would like to ban any further Muslim immigration to our country speciffically because you are all causing so much trouble for us. But I will never be able to do that because our laws do not permit me to do so.

I am not attacking your religion. I am attacking your attitudes towards the world around you and those who are trying very hard to help you build a country worth living in. Prehaps the next time there is an earth quake or a tzunami that devastates your lands you will remember who it was that came to your aid but some how I seriously doubt it. You will just continue cursing and blaming my folk for the troubles that befall you. But we will continue doing as we have always done and try to help even those who curse us and spit on us. We went into Kosovo to aid the Muslims there against the Serbs who were murdering and raping them . But today you claim that we caused the troubles in the Balkans. That we were the ones who were killing innocent Muslims. You speak as if the Serbs never existed cursing us because we stand with Israel against the Hamas and the Hezbollah. You do not even recognize that it is Muslims murdering Muslims in most of the Muslim world that account for the misery of the people in those countries. You will not see that it is Muslims stealing from Muslims that keeps the majority of your people in such an impoverished state.

Of the millions of dollars given to the Palestinians most of it ended up in the pockets of Yassar Arafat and a few of his henchmen. Most of the oil money going to Muslims ends up in the pockets of the Royal Families. Only in some places like Dhubai does that money ever reach down to the common people. That's certainly not the case in Pakistan, in Saudi or Iraq or Syria. Iran is a dictatorship with a mad man at the helm of state and the economy there is in the tank with shortages of all sorts in basic necessities. Is this your Muslim paradise? There is not a Muslim country in the world that does not have troubles, socially, economically and politically. You want to blame us for that? We are not in control of what you do in your own countries. We do not and cannot decide for you what your lives will be. We do not control the price you pay for food or medicine. We do not tell what you must wear for clothing. We do not tell you what to read or what cinemas to go to and watch. We do not control the content of your television broadcasts. We cannot forbid you anything in your own lives and yet you blame us for all of your self imposed miseries.

Clean your own house before you start criticizing us
