Dear oh dear, here we go again. Why do you want to fight our precious west? You claim there are no true Islamic countries in the world, very well go and fight them, in their countries! Oh no, that would not be safe would it? You would get short shrift from the authorities there (wherever there is) and you know it. Demonstrating on the streets in American cities or British cities is safe. The very democracy that you despise makes it so.

Can our religions/cultures create a living being you ask? No, can yours?

Yes there are people who pursue pleasure, and have forgotten and debased religion,as have yours from your own post. Well surely God/Allah/Yahweh, seeing all, and judging all, will sort these people out in his own time, and his own fashion. So why not leave it to him If your belief is so strong?

You say there are no Islamic countries. Well Christianity has bred many forms, but they seem to manage to co-exist in peace, why can't Islam? The very so called freedom fighters in Iraq seem to be doing a fair job of genocide without the help of the coalition forces. Why did we invade Iraq in the first place? little evidence of WMD have been found, perhaps they were shipped elsewhere. Even if we assume that Saddam Hussein Al Tikriti was as pure as the driven snow (Thousands of his own now dead people would not agree) Why would he not co-operate fully with the inspectors? Had he done so, would the invasion have happened? It should be further noted for all those in sympathy with him, that he boasted openly many times that he would fight to the end for his beloved country. In the end of course he was captured skulking in a hole in the ground. Very brave.

No, if you fel there are no Islamic countries, go and fight them there. When you have established your real Islamic society, perhaps it can live in peace with the west. You and yours are always claiming it is a religion of peace. That being the case, 9/11, The Madrid bombings, The London tube bombings, The Bali bombs, The Eygyptian bombings, the suicide bombers, etc. etc. etc. never really happened did they?
