Please take the time to read my reply,

I agree with you that peoples rights have been broken, this is inhuman. But rights are being broken everywhere in the world, one cannot point fingers at entire populations of people for the sins of a few.

You said "In the past arabs have traded black africans as slaves, raped their women and children"

Your comments only prove how little you know, im sorry but its true. How do you think africans got to america? Were they not taken as slaves, wer not their women and children raped by european settlers? Islam came to the arabs 1400 years ago and forbade slavery, a task that has only been acomplished by the Western world in the last century.

It is a shame how many people are fooled by the media. Yes it is true there are muslim extremists, as there are extremists form every other ethic group in the world. In america, non-christian people are kidnapped and crucified by christian extremists. You dont hear about this because it is covered up by the media. the spotlight is shone on the minority of muslims who act against their own religion, those who are confused or who are made confused into inhuman acts, condemed by human rights and every single religion known to man, including islam. Islam strictly forbids the killing/raping/harming of an innocent person, of any ethnicity or colour. One of the most recognised companions and close friends of The prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) was Bilal, an african slave who was freed by a muslim and became one of the most respected people at the time, and until now.

You also said "No moslem or arab provides food clothing and shelter to blacks in africa while whites (I dare say whites) do run some relief and aid operations in the poorest places of the dark continent"

Before you make comments like these, take a look at the difference between the two societies. Europeans live in a first world, wealthy society, they have the resources and money in order to provide for the less wealthy. Check up on any Arab or muslim country, they are all considered third world countries, much like your own, in debt and run without much democracy.

You cannot judge Arabs and muslims by the few examples shown by the media. I tell you there are 1.5 billion muslims in this world and of which these terrorists make up a very small sample. It is the media that distorts our image for their own greed. There are many political hands that benefit from this distorted image af a peaceful religion, that has remained peaceful every since it was established 1400 years ago. Take a look at the millions of arabs and muslims killed everyday in Iraq, Palestine and Cherchneya. You are not alone in grieving over your family, beleive me.

I hope this helps you to understand,

A muslim.
