Sarah,

If the story of the beheading of 600-900 men at Mohammed's behest is 'concocted', then I'm wrong about that part of Muslim history. But when Another One confirmed it, but told me it was because they had broke a treaty, that sounds like he's acknowledging its occurrence. Are you saying these murders didn't occur since you say I concocted it? I brought up the point that these tribes refused to give up their Jewish beliefs and suffered Mohammed's wrath (beheading). I quoted his man, who stated clearly there was nothing he wanted more than to achieve this killing. I gave a definition of a martyr and said it sounds like these Jewish men died at the hand of Mohammed as martyrs. They died for their beliefs.

Next, I have been listening over and over at this board that Muslims believe Jesus to be a prophet just like Mohammed, I felt I should be able to say I don't believe that. I was asked my beliefs and I stated them. If you want me to go over them again and again, I could but this would probably bore everyone here. Yes, I said I probably shouldn't bring my religious beliefs into this discussion when I answered Adib's questions, but as you can see that's easier said than done. The questions keep coming, I try to clarify, which brings up more questions about Christianity, the trinity, Jesus' conception and birth. In your post, you say "they can't explain the basic things about it." Just because my views on the trinity are different than someone else's and you can't understand what I have tried to explain, doesn't mean I don't understand-- it means you don't. I would explain why I have come to these beliefs, but I'm quite sure you would rip apart my reasoning somehow.

I think you are deliberately focusing on Christianity and staying off the subject of your own religion, which appears to me to be the origin of the problems going on right now in the world. The subject we're dealing with hear is Muslim's inability to exist productively in Denmark (and elsewhere) and why. When a newspaper addressed the issues (in disrespectful cartoons) which offended Muslims around the world, rioting, burning buildings, deaths, and mayhem broke out all over the world. The violent actions stemming from Islam can't be ignored. If Another One's reasons for Mohammed's beheading of people is correct (for breaking a treaty), then that in itself is probably an indicator of where certain Muslims feel justified in all their vile acts.

Why can't you address this problem? Or do you think it makes more sense to go over the trinity? Will that somehow get to the bottom of what's going on in Isam? I beg to differ.
Submitting....
