It's not a small group of Muslims, it's a rather large and dangerous group.

I understand that no geographical "Nation of Islam" actually exists; I am referring to a collective group of people, much like saying "The Cherokee Nation".

You reveal disdain for the American Muslims (who, in your own words are far from true Muslims) so I'd like to point out that most American Muslims ARE peaceful and mind their own business; which is exactly why they will be swallowed up by the true Muslims who consider them stagnant, liberal, and heretical.

I understand that not all Palestinians are Muslims, and vice versa, and I do not condone opposing someone based on their ethnic background, but you have to admit that quite many of the Palestinians, mostly refugees, are being recruited to destroy Jews and Christians and are being taught the very things I laid out in my last post. Can you with a clear conscience dispute those facts? It is possible that you weren't taught those things, but you'd be on a very short list.

As far as Muslims marrying non-Muslims; Your statement about the Prophet Muhammed asking for his Uncle's conversion, and Allah's answer (Hidayah) contradicts the idea of a Muslim man marrying a non-Muslim woman to try to persuade her by his lifestyle to become a Muslim. Doesn't Sura 4:90 also say much about this? How can a man find a pathway for someone whom God has lead astray, like a non-believing woman?

I never mentioned that Jews were called dogs, but the Koran does call them Apes for breaking God's covenant. Calling someone an Ape usually is not a nice way of describing them.

I'd like to know what you think about the big problem going on in Iraq right now with the Shia and the Sunni blowing each other to pieces, and tell me how that applies to the words "La Ikrah Fi Deen"?

If you truly want to pursue finding proof of Mr Shoebat's background, start with an entry dated August 23 2006 by writer John Hubers titled " Please produce the Proof". A response is given to his request by Daniel Pipes himself.
