Do you see any Muslims committing genocide? Random acts of terrorism by minorities of politcal activists doesn't qualify as the idealogy of a whole people does it?

Yes, we do. The Janjaweed in Sudan (whom you've asked to comment on several times). You've not heard of Darfur?!

Yes I agree but we won't be silenced - Muslims are under attack from blatant racism and hatred and any Muslim worth his or her salt won't sit back and take it - we will speak out against injustices done to us.

- You'll find that the Muslim contributors to this board are quite obviously the authors of the greatest volume of 'racist' comments. Furthermore, you have yet to defend any factually based allegation in terms anything other than counter-attack and even these are generally factually inaccurate as has been demonstrated time after time.

I don't know about other religions but Islam gives many of its believers the patience to withstand some of the hardest conditions placed on humans . Many Muslims are extremely poor but their "blind faith" as you put it - gives them the strength to continue with their lives and even sometimes find happiness in the simplest of things. Islam teaches us patience.

- Many would argue that it is the limitations placed on such societies by religious doctrine that is the cause of most of their ills as witnessed when we compare the backwards nature of Pakistan when compared to India.

Yes, scriptures were passed forward orally, however Muslims are sure that the Koran is intact and original because it was written at the time of the Prophet (pbuh), by his followers and it was and still is in ONE LANGUAGE AND ONE VERSION - not much room for editing or changing here I would say.

- Factually inaccurate. The oldest copy of the Koran in existence is dated 750AD. Any accuracy in the oral tradition presupposes that a largely illiterate community had infallible (memories).
