Asalaamu alaykum to all the mumineen,

My friend I understand the situation for christians and other ethnic people living in many Islamic countries. But they must accept the laws of that particular country if they wish to live their and I know that many christians are persecuted. However, Christians aren't the only people that are persecuted, Muslims all around the world are persecuted especially after 9/11 and 7/7 - why should the entire community have to suffer at the hands of stupid terrorists. The Muslims living in Jerusalem also suffer - they aren't even allowed to pray in their local mosque al-Aqsa and whats worse the Israeli's are weakening the foundations of Al-Aqsa which has stood in Jeursalem for centuries - how can that be right! Jews are allowed into an Islamic mosque but Muslims aren't!

Please look deep into your heart - you know that is not right just like persecuting christians in Islamic countries. If you look at the West their is a legislation that protects certain religious groups, (for example jews and sikh's) but their is no law protecting Muslims. Every where we go (muslims) we are hated, just because a minority of people who claim to be Muslims and blow themselves up.

I have numerous friends who are Jews and Muslims and we get along perfectly - it's like a brotherhood. When we pray they respect us and likewise. So I don't understand how a Muslim and Jew can't live together peacefully.

My friend don't blame a particular race or people because it has nothing to do with them - blame the actual persons or governments responsible. In every religion their are some people who are sour grapes - for example a sect of christians of USA who hate America and celebrate the death of soldier in Iraq - tit's a small congregration - they are hated by the entire USA.

And as for Ibrahim - we Muslims believe that Ibrahim had two sons Is-Haq and Ismael. Ibrahim prayed to Allah for a people from his sons who would be obedient to He- Almighty (after completing the building and ressurecting the Kab'ah). From Is-Haq came the arabs and Ismael the Jews (the Qur'an acknowledges the blood ties). However, yes they were the people however it wasn't to last as they began killing the prophets and believe in Uzair. I am not critising what you believe but letting you know what I believe to see the comparison - very similar.
