Your miss understanding of Islam has crippled your visions

I lived and grew up in a Muslim country being a Christian. I understand your blackout emotional sentiments. I always faced this opposition and my faith was questioned by Muslim fellows time and again. You can run from the truth but cannot hide from the truth.
If you are trying to make some kind of logical argument you don't need to criticize your opponent you need to criticize his arguments call him blind will not get you anywhere. Running from the truth not been able to hide it sounds nice but it is not your thoughts.
Despite my ever best efforts to understand Islam, it was unable to impact me. There won't be any stupid person on the face of the earth who converts to Islam, particularly Prince Charles who has all the access to and is aware of the Islamic history of subduing other countries & helpless peoples as ordered by Mohammad, his Allah & Koran. Simply, Islam changed names like Abraham to Ibrahim, Jesus to Issa, John the Baptist to Yahaya and Yahweh to allah. If you read the quran with the eyes of a TRUE believer of the ONE GOD of Abraham, Isaac, King David, Moses & Jesus you are bound to find and distinguish differences in the teaching of Mohammad in quran and the teachings of all other Jewish prophets in Torah, Pslams (Zaboor) & Gospels (Anjil).
You started writing this piece with a made up mind, unfortunately. And you are not willing to listen to know one and apparently all of them are stupid according to you (those converts) I bet you are not half the man Prince Charles was literally and figuratively. as for the orders of God through the voice of Mohamed exploited as the Quran (No one cares what your opinion is, but in this diplomatic world we live in no one is entitled to harm others physically or verbally this is your opinion keep it yourself that is theirs), as for changing the names such as Abraham to Ibrahim this is a language barrier and I am sure you already knew that but still choose to bring it up and as we all know all languages come with luggage such as this one Abraham and Ibrahim are one name that refer to one individual. This is a good point if you read the Quran with the eyes of a true believer? You will find the differences between all other Jewish prophets and Mohamed, first do you believe as a scientist that the medication for penicillin today is the same as that it was 200 years ago? If you can read each of those prophets had a specialization for his people to believe in him why? Because if I come to a person who does not know about medication and I tell him I can cure you what you think will he believe whatever I say or what? Know imagine you come to someone who knows all about medicine and I tell him which diseases can't you cure and I will cure them for you? Which of the two will be having a stronger stand with you a person who knows about medicine off course? And please when you refer to something site it don't make you comments general like if you read the Quran you will find this, have evidence and support those evidence through arguing them.
For example Yahweh commanded "thou shall not kill" (one of the 10 commandments) but Quran explicitly condones killing of infidels including Jews & Christians. Furthermore, Quran was never compiled by Mohammad himself as it looks he was not interested in compiling it during his life time. We all know it was compiled far after his death and edited by so many times to bring to all the Muslims without any error. But the TRUTH cannot hide and Quran has so many errors.
That is not true I have read the Quran several times to get better comprehension of it and I never came across anything like this (killing of infidels including Jews and Christians) please site where ever you are reading this but it is not in the Quran. Were you acquainted with Mohamed how did you know he wasn't interested to compile the Quran? And did you just agree that today's version of the Quran is free of errors? And come back to say it has so many errors? Why are contradicting yourself? Where are all those errors you are claiming the Quran to have? Why don't you be more specific and be direct? And which truth are you talking about?
Did you know that the Quran is the most read book on day to day basis? Think about it.. an amazing fact about the Quran it is not saved in the books it memorized they are millions of Muslims who have it memorized! You would say this is a statistic where are the facts, I know this because I know that there are millions of Masjids around the world and all of them have some ritual call traweeh prayers which is performed in Ramadan you should learn about it any ways this traweeh is a recitation of the full Quran? And usually there are at least two readers.
For example, Allah of Mohammad commanded him to tell the people that the SUN set down in a MUDDY LAKE. Don't you realize that the scientist is smarter than Allah who knows exactly the location of Dawn and Sun set? 2ndly, Mother Mary of Jesus has been quoted as sister of Moses & Aaron ignoring the time space between Moses & Jesus. You will find many more problems with Quran despite it was given by one Allah by himself to his last prophet with a promise that teaching in Quran will never be changed. Muslims please wakeup & start trying to send peace on your human family instead of Mohammad. Let GOD give him peace if he deserves it?
Know you speak of the sun going to a muddy lake? I will ask you again you must not have read the Quran because once again nowhere to be found oh and one more thing how do you know that the sun is where it is? Or have you just accepted that out of faith? Did this scientist give you proof by showing you really where it is or did this scientist go out in space and measure the distance these are all theories my friend, which we try to understanding them by studying the evidence and instead of being so offensive to people try and be more understanding so that the truth that you seek will fall on your lap.
As a last point what people do with their time is only their own concern, I am sure that no one will ask you for your opinion and if they do, please don't give them a bitter one.
