I am a born and raised muslim. I have read the Quran from cover to cover and memorized it and I have read the Bible cover to cover. Nowhere in the Quran or in the Bible says about killing another human, they only teach us to be good to one other, not to harm others, to be given, to be forgiven, and many other good directions which I can't cover in a page of paper.

I have fought the Russians during their occupation in my home land of Afghanistan, but yet I don't hate Russian people, I dislike the communist government. A true muslim is not the one to hate is to forgive and be in peace, that's what Islam means. My parents whom are true muslim never told me to hate another human let alone harming them. We as Afghans been the target of every power in the world, English in 1900, Russians in 1970's, Terrorist in the 1990's. They all combind killed by millions of people, Osama Ben Landen and his followers alone killed 500,000 man and woman between 1993 to 2001.

Once again remember Afghans are 100% muslims and we were the ones who got attacked. At the end dear readers as a true muslim I would like to tell you that true muslims are not the terrorist as Mr. Walid trying to proof. Furthermore, religion is not the problem we as the people are, in every religion there are good and there are bad followers. We as the people interpert the book God, which ever one to our own benefit. We all are brothers and sisters from the same mom and dad (Adam and Eve), one God and only one, no one is like him and he is not like anyone else.

Please let's respect each other as human and don't judge, because the Bood Of God said don't judge unless you want to be judged, and the only judge is God not us. At the end to Mr. Walid, "you should get on your knees and apalogize to the people you harmed for years, and before pointing at someone else you should point at yourself, because you did wrong not the religion. God give you brain to think, eyes to see, and that gives you the power to chose and you chose the wrong direction, to kill and to harm. Iam a muslim I never killed or harmed so Islam did not make you a killer you did."

Farhad Zarif.
