As 'good' Muslims, or as a normal human beings:
-We feel anger when our so called Muslim brothers kill innocent people in the name of religion.
-We feel anger when our Western friends bomb Iraq, Afghanistan and other states and kill innocent people in the name of upholding democracy.
-We fear for the world when the dictators in Muslim countries try to make nuclear weapons.
-It gives us the shivers when we remember that the only country that ever used an atom bomb to kill thousands and thousands of civilians (in Hiroshima and Nagasaki) was the most powerful country in the world, in whose hands lies the democratic and western values !
-We are horrified to see Muslim extremists slaughtering human beings in front of the camera.
-We are horrified to see western soldiers kicking deadbodies, beating small boys (secretly filmed in hidden camera).
-We are hurt when some (law abiding) newspapers insult and mock the beliefs and faith of one fifth of the world's population (and their governments do not/ can not comdemn that)
-We are angry when some (unruly) people burn Embassies and flags of other nations (and no Muslim state actually comdemns that.)
-We are hurt to see how deeply some of the western people hate the muslims (they say they have reasons).
-We are hurt to see how deeply some of the muslims hate the western people. (they say they have reasons).
-We are surprised when the Muslims say that their hatred are just reaction to the wrongdoing of the western world (they think the West started first)
-We are surprised when the Western people says that their hatred are just reaction to the wrongdoing of the Muslim world (they think the Muslims started first).
-We are sure NOT ALL MUSLIMS hate the west.
-We are sure NOT ALL WESTERN PEOPLE hate Muslims.
Is there any Muslim out there who can shout at the top of his/her voice: 'WE WILL NOT TALK OF HATRED ANY MORE'?
Is there any Westerner out there who can shout at the top of her/his voice: 'WE WILL NOT TALK OF HATRED ANY MORE'?
