Pir, once again you prove me right when I say there is no point in trying to discuss issues rationally with Muslims, because they simply cannot comprehend simple logic, they do not understand how to debate, they have no common sense. I've spelled this out for you repeatedly, and you have consistently avoided directly answering a single question.

I will ignore your latest rambling post and simply restate a few simple questions for you. I want to to answer them with short, concise, on-topic replies instead of one giant 2,500 word incomprehensible rant of wildly unproven accusations. Just a simple, short answer to each, to prove that you have what it takes to engage with the rest of us in an intelligent debate.

1. If Islam is the religion of peace, why is it that everywhere Islam exists, Islam is at war with non-Muslims? Sudan, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Bosnia, etc. No matter where Islam exists, it is at war with others. Of all the wars currently taking place on the entire planet, 90% of them consist of Islam attacking others, whether those others are Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, atheists, etc. Explain in a few short paragraphs why this is possible if Islam is a religion of peace.

2. If Islam is the religion of peace, why then do Muslims in all Islamic countries take to the streets en masse and celebrate terror attacks that kill thousands of innocent people, including women and children? Why are most Muslims generally tolerant of terror, or actually endorsing it? If Islam is a religion of peace, then why does it feature the idea of forced conversion by the sword, and dhimmitude for those who refuse to join the cult of death?

3. Compare modern day Christianity to Islam. You've posted nonsense about Christian terrorists, but you have to this point ignored my replies to that. Specifically, when Christians commit atrocities, you do not see the Pope, the cardinals, the bishops, or the priests ranting about those who committed the atrocities being heroes or martyrs, claiming they will go to their reward in heaven. Instead, Christianity says that those people will burn in hell for all eternity as punishment for their sins. They ostracize these villains, they disassociate from them, they excommunicate them.

With Islam, the opposite occurs. A demented Muslim madman straps a vest full of explosives to his teenage son's body and tells him to go blow himself up in a busy public area, with the bomb devised in such as way as to maximize the number of deaths and injuries. Instead of ostracizing the murderers, Islam endorses them. Muslim clerics praise them and preach about how they're going to their reward from bloodthirsty Allah. They're not going to burn in hell for killing innocent, unarmed ,civilian women and children. Islam says they're going to go to paradise as a reward. Muslims worship these madmen as heroes, they name their children after them (in the hopes that they will follow in the murderers' footsteps).

Christianity and Islam seem to be polar opposites. How can anyone in their right mind call the religion that celebrates mass murder, raping, and the killing of innocent women and children a "religion of peace", while accusing the religion that condemns such horrific actions a "religion of terror"? I'm not interested in a rambling, nearly incoherent, factually incorrect, 2,000 word temper tantrum about Bush being evil and Christians running WWII and killing 80 million people. What I want to see is a direct, on-topic, well-reasoned, short and concise answer to each point I mentioned above. Are you able to do that, or are you going to prove once again that Muslims are uneducated barbarians who only understand violence and fanaticism?
