in response to reader comment: Don't judge a book by its cover

Hi,

I would be straight. I would not say that those who flew over the two towers were not Muslims , for I would be an idiot . However , Those who did such a work where the fruit of the the secret agents of America. I wonder if you know the historical pact along the days of the war in Afganistan against the Soviets.

Those are under the banner of certain islamic allies who were trained , financed , supervised , and monitored by the CIA. Later , when the war ended , they were let down by the USA , because the task was over and instead of helping them to establish an islamic country as promised by the American where access to central Asia petrol would be guaranted , none of the two honored his promise. Americans then waged persecution with the governments where those activists came from and most of them were killed and persecuted . Therefore, they punished the Americans , and I myself do not admit what they did. I read the bible and I do not need anyone to explain it to me I read it in different languages , yet you have forgotten that historically speaking , the church has always been in hurry to do its best to change and update the contexts and the interpretations , so that to meet the demands of people . A reigion can not modify its holliness so as to meet its believers.
Jihad is many times mentioned in our Holy Koran , but Peace more numerous. Jihad in the sense of warefare is intended for defence of territories, honors, possessions, and so no . However, in the same holy book peace is dictated on Muslims to be respected with those who do not attack Muslims and it is one of the constancies.
Religions in general and this is universal are for peace , and morality . However, when they are used for political aims to be achieved they become victims of the of man's insincerity and instincts.

The Christians were victims of persecution and excommunication , if not your ancestors would have never migrated to Canada in the Age of Discovery. Shall I bame Christianity here or those christians who have misused religion and enforced the feudal system which dehumanized people?

A lot of questions to be asked and many answers to be provided , however it takes a long time . Perhaps we will exchange more letters later on.
best wishes.
