Dear Susan,

many so called Muslims, kill people in the name of their religion, some even kill and rape and they will do their best to prove that they have the right to. Hell, the Christians in the south said that it was because they were good christians they killed Blacks. Many Jewish religious leaders in Israel approve of killing Arabs, in the name of their religion too. The crusaders killed Muslims, Jews, even christians(in Byzantium) in the name of religion. Hence, I can say that Jews, Christians, and Muslims are murderers. That is the logic most of you use.

The problem I have is with generalization. I assure you, no religion on earth advocates crime. I know Islam doesn't because I have the Quran telling me that it is not OK. I also know that because in Arabia, where I live and where murder was a means of survival, life improved after Islam.

Muslims do all kind of things their religions prohibit, so do Christians and Jews. For example, abortion is prohibited in Christianity, yet many Christian women think it is their right, and I'm sure some of them will do their best to prove it is not against Christianity.

Religion is always used by some whenver possible for political or self gain .

So why are so many Muslims violent in the name of their religion? It is simply because Islam gives a whole system for all life matters, unlike other religions which deals mostly with the spiritual side of matters. Islam has rules for everything, politics, finance, war...you name it. Therefore, it is easier for Muslims to be mislead,or to want to use the religion for their own gains.

To say we are a danger to humanity, please !! How many have Muslims killed compared to so called Christians? let's look back quickly in recent history, Millions of Native Americans in North and South America, Millions in World War 1, Millions in World War 2, Nuklear bomb usage, Colonization, A million people killed in Algeria by France, Millions in Vietnam, Millions of people in Iraq through starvation, sickness and war.

Looking at all that, one can falsly conclude that Christianity is a violent religion. But I would not say that because I have read the bible; I know the ideals of Christianity ; and I have known many Christians from all parts of the world. Instead, I will say Islam is not a danger to humanity nor is Christianity, but people like Bin Laden, Dick Cheney, and Ehud Olmert are.

Salam(Peace).
