Funny to relate the bombers to Islam

I don't know if the people who keep saying Bombers = Islam are joking or pretending to be stupid! If we will judge each and every religion by the acts of "few" people, then what about the acts of the Church during the Spanish Inquisition? The thousands of Muslims and Jews who were killed just for refusing Christianity? Wasn't Hitler a Christian? Wasn't Japan bombed by a Christian president? Isn't Bush Christian? It seems that the world is taking the evil doings of Christians as a normal and frequent thing to the extent that the religion of the doers is not mentioned. Ask any honest Jew and he/she will tell you that Muslims treated Jews and Christians during their rulings much better than how Christians treated others!

And why should we think far, what about the British and American invasion to Iraq and the killing and raping of Iraqi people by "mainly" Christian hands? If it were Muslims who invaded anywhere, then it is Islam that was going to be blamed, but no one dares to blame Christianity and the reason is clear... it's because most of the "official" evil acts are done by Christians, so they are carried out in the name of politics and no one say that they are carried out by Christians.

By the way, I respect true Christians but it's sad that they are very few nowadays... and also I don't mean to belittle Christianity at all, but it's because the writer said ""should Charles persist in his admiration of Islam and defamation of his own culture,"" and apparently he means Christianity by "his own culture" as if Islam will taint the "purity" of England!! It became normal nowadays that people will clap their hands to anyone who'd say something bad about Islam, and frown if anyone said something good.

Submitting....
