".....but ı get very upset and angry when you go one step further and start to accuse that muslims are terrorists ,........ "

If facts upset you - so be it. This is a factual statement. While all Muslims have not committed terrorist acts - most terrorist acts are committed by devoted (deluded) Muslims.

".....islam orders to kill, "

I'll leave this for the Koranic experts to point out the verses which call for the destruction of non-Muslims.

"muslims are trying to invade europe and the whole world,"

Where are they heading then? China?

You should direct your anger at fellow Muslims who make these statements that make you angry. Here's a few comments picked out of posts recently made to this board by a Muslim - and these sorts of comments are not uncommon:

"" May allah guide the people of the west to islam" "...one day inshallah europe will be overun with muslims" "...even if I die in this path I am a shaheed, who died in allah's path and nothing can stop the spread of islam and destruction of the west." ".... and guidace you may be spared when Islam rises from the ashes of the west." "....".... Soon inshallah we will outnumber you in the west." "....."we have Allah on our side and victory is promised. You are being destroyed from within by the fifth column ethnics you hate so much" "....and inshallah soon the whole of europe will be engulfed in shariah law." "....and soon the whole land mass of eurasia, africa and oceana will be under islamic control"" (Dave from London)

There are many similar sorts of sentiments expressed by Muslims on this board and throughout the world. Don't pretend it is not so.

"......muslims merry children etc." ı get disgusted from these accusations."

Underage marriage is far more prevalent in Muslim countries - that is a fact. It is illegal in Western societies. But I guess Muslims have one excuse (a very lame one at that ) - and that is that your 'prophet" was sleeping with a nine year old girl who he first got the hots for when she was six . I'm sure a lot of uneducated people - when looking at the life of the 'perfect' man - would have thought - 'if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me'.

"....islam and muslim societies have real problems inside itself. "

Not much of an admission really is it?

"....but the reasons of terrorizm done in the name of islam has a reason .that is resistence against christian imperializm."

No - it has many causes. It can be because of hatred of Jews promulgated by the little green book. It can be because they hate Shias, Sunnis, Wahabis, Bahai's, Hindus, Buddhists.Or Christians or atheists. Or it could be because of jealousy - I mean wouldn't you be pissed off if you could turn a desert into an oasis as the Israelis have done through sheer hard work ?

"....in order to make western people live rich and easy lifes, "

See - jealousy.

Muslims are making western people have rich and easy lives? Explain that? The only thing that some Muslim countries have that anybody wants is oil. And that product is SOLD by Muslims on the open market to any buyers. Westerners have better lives because they work for it - they don't throw their arms up in the air and say it's all allahs will and do nothing about bettering their circumstances.

"......the rest of the underdeveloped countries are considered as playing garden. "

Westerners are not flocking to live in this 'playing garden". Why is that?

"....but we are also humans. we have families, we have children we have feelings."

So did the Nazis and Bolsheviks, so did Ghengis Khan's hordes. So what?

"assuming that islam is an evil cult and so a muslims life is not important is exactly what some important people wants the people to think."

People's lives should be important to themselves - you cannot expect other people to believe that your life is important to them. Look around you - how many people in your own town think your life is really important? Islam's supremacist beliefs are the real issue - not the people whose minds currently believe that the cult of Islam is important.

".....so that they can do their ugly jobs.they suck the peoples bloods in order to be more and more powerful. big countries big componies, arab dictators are all partners in this ugly ugly job. and we the rest are the preys. "

And what better way to control a prey than with a monolithic supremacist belief system based on a 7th Century world view??
