Dear Naimnat Khan,

You touch a crucial point by asking to "calculate the numbers who have been killed by the crusaders BUSH after the 9/11." You clearly link the actions of Bush to 9/11.

Let us go back in history to the time of al insan al kamil Muhammad bin Abdullah. The story of the genocide on Banu Qurayza is most often justified by muslims by the fact that they possibly posed a threat to the muslim community and were killed in a pre-emptive strike. There is no evidence of any hostile act by the Banu Qurayza, on the contrary.

Now if we apply this to the current times, we will see that muslims not only pose an actual threat to America, just look at terror cells that are discovered every day, but on 9/11, muslims actually killed 3000+ innocent persons. If George Bush were to apply the same mercy and logic of your prophet, he would either kill or deport all 3 - 9 million muslims in the US. And you would certainly agree with that. Or do you think that killing the Banu Qurayza because of the schizophrenia of your prophet was an act of mercy and retaliation of Bush for an actual attack is barbarity? Is something that is morally bad for Bush on one hand, completely defendable for the prophet on the other hand.

I look forward to your comments and wish you peace.
