What is the ground of your argument? is it stereotype? is it from the news? is it from from movies? or is it from Bush Jr.?

I haven't been on the mid east...
and yes, there are some of muslims that i knew wanted to slain jews just because they're jews..
but there's also a lot more muslims that consider the jew as a people is okay..the Israelis government is the culprit that must be reformed. Yitzhak Rabin was a good fellow, but then he was killed by some jerk because trying his best to obtain peace on mid-east.

I have attend a seminar conducted by Kompas (Indonesia's largest newspaper), and based of the knowledge from that seminar, the whole Israel-Palestine conflict was all about fight for land and territorial because of the British gives vague promises for both sides. That same argument was heard previously by me from a documentary series of "Don't tell my mother i'm in.." by NGC. Furthermore, one of the panelist from Palestine said that because it is a fight for territorial land and not religion, they didn't need military aid that based on religion bias..

Now, let's take a look of who says that the Israel and Palestine conflict was a religion conflict... The al-queda (or other terrorist scum), the Iran gov (an attempt to provoke the west to attack them), International Media (because bad news had good rating), and of course... the likes of you, Mr. Albrecht Klein....

and then... isn't any wonder that I think that those who resembles you... are the one responsible for fueling the terrorists with what they need... by turning all issue into a religious one you only helps the terrorists and no one else...

Bottom Line is... in the real world, nothing is as simple as you think.. nothing is black and white...
I know that not all muslims are good, the same as not all christian, budhist, and any other are good people..
There are always bad and good people no mather what their religion or faith... it is just the human nature..

And there is a verse that i always put forth in my view for anything related to religion bias from the Al-Quran, that "to you your religion/faith and to me mine"..... means that you should respect everyone's choice of religion even if it's wrong in your eyes..
And by the way, if you encounter a muslim that says you're religion is wrong and insult you for that... tell him/her that while it may seems wrong in their eyes but it is right in your eyes and that's why you choose to be.

Submitting....
