Thomas Justin Kaze,

Greetings,

There is no need to call any Prophet ( May peace be upon them) names.It does not detract from their greatness. My Prophet, Muhammad (May peace be upon him) did not rape or plunder and neither did any other prophet. Read your Books on Faith and you will see that and read the Quran-E-Karim, my book to se if we are asked to rape and plunder.

It seems we live in a world where there are two truths. The first is the metaphysical truth upon which is based Justice and morality and the second truth is a political truth and all truths and morality stems from this truth. It seems you live in the world pf political truths. Even so it does not make sense to abuse those who live by metaphysical truths because this form of truth is common to all or over almost all humanity. Because it would be akin to a man who wanted to spit on God and wound up spitting on his face. In the world of political truths, is where you can say anything you like and if you are the strongest, then your word is the truth. This form is the one that is prevelant in the West. You have kept religion for Sunday and other religious holidays. We have n't we pray 5 times a day, believe the Quran-E- Karim is a book for guidance on this earth and therefore carries a complete code of life. In other words, islam is a paradigm.

Incidentally, as a Muslim, I am enjoined to respect 124,000 prophets that have been sent down in the course of time to all people durin recorded History. In other words It in incumbent for me to respect the prophets of all monotheistic religions. You will remember, we Muslims didn't create Indian reservations, broke Treaties with them or create the Concentration camps that killed some 6 million jews . 9/11 was the work of an extremely radical group of Muslims and not all the Muslims agree on the actions of this radical group.

In the world of political truths, the so called right wingers are wearing their butts as necklaces in Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan. My country Pakistan despite of what your media says is considered to be the best ally to the West in the fight against Al-Qaeda and the Taliban and these are the words of a big right wing politician, the President of the USA. The country that is helping your right wingers save themselves is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Don't you read your newspapers or watch TV? Your President, Secretary of state, your Vice president and the Secretary for Defence spoke with the President of my country in the course of his present visit to your country and your president will have dinner with him and Karzai of Afghanistan on the 27th of September to help find a workable solution.

In Iraq , like Vietnam, the West with all their technology will lose the war because war is fought by men and you need men to take over the country you fight in. My country has deployed on our borders than the total amount of ISAF and Nato troops on the ground in Afghanistan just to make your task easy. We supply you the fuel and the airspace and air bases to carry out your fight against Al-Qaeda for the last 5 years. Dont forget this and dont bad mouth Muslims. We want peace, we want honour and dignity and do not choose to deny anyone the same. You are welcome to your country but not the world. That belongs to those who inhabit it. Most of all, dont bad mouth my Prophet (peace be upon him).He has not harmed you at all and He was not repeat He was not involved in raping and plunder. if you know of a book that says so, please tell me its name.

Try and understand we don't live our lives by comparison. We know what is good and what is evil. It seems you have yet to learn that.
