JUST is a conditional word, JUST from islamic point of view is the reverse of JUST in others' view. Resisting the unjust can not be done by doing unjust to the opressor. Jesus has demonstrated this realy well. Ghandi could defeat the British empire by peace, he didn't shed a drop of blood of his occupiers. History proofed that violence can not be defeated by violence. Christianity spread for the first 300 years without carrying a sword against thier enemies, Christians were tortured, thrown to lions, burned alive for 300 years, this in no way can be compared to what muslims had in the first 13 years of islam. Muslims were brutal to Mecca people as much as they were brutal to them, I cant remeber the name but one of muslims killed his father in Badr battle because his father didn't believe in Islam.

Please open your eyes, and see what peace is all about, JUST can not bring peace if JUST was only for certain group of people, through Islam history, JUST was translated to thier favour. I hear lots of muslims say that they should bring back Andalus "Spain" under islamic rule, this is what they consider JUST, has anyone wander what JUST means to the other party.

Islam is JUST to its people, muslims all over the world are just complianing and outraged in Philippin, in Kashmir, in Europe, everywhere and they consider it JUST to intimidate the rest because in Quran it says that it is JUST to defend Islam and muslims. Who decides what JUST is, and who decides when muslims are opressed but not the opressors?

I thank you very much that you said islam is not about peace it is about JUST. So again, give some credit to the readers and stop preaching Islam as a religeon of peace.

I'll continue with the rest of your email later

The real peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you
