1. Sold by the British?

2. I know you aren't Jewish from the name "Terry", but you're no Batman Beyond either. And who's blaming whom? If you do not understand the faith as being similar as Christianity and Judaism, instead of treating it like a wanna-be Hinduism, Buddhism, etc, you guys might busy us alive. You personally did that yourself in your post below:

Such that I mentioned in paragraph 2 earlier is happening anyways, that we now have a diminished reputation.

3. Nigeria was slightly perfect until foreigners told the military government to step down in 1999. Of course it's a mess, not to mention the Yoruba corruption that even Yorubas cannot stand anymore these days, but have no power to revolt. Why else I left the country in 2005, apart for academic reasons, after being brutally attacked by six armed robbers back in August 11th that year? If it weren't for God, praise is to Him for sabotaging the hunting gun, I would not be here typing this by now.

4. "Thou shalt not kill", my brother. It's in the Quranic Chapter 5:32. Do not look at the terrorists as role models of Islam. Even they are brutalizing Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, forcing groups to clash with themselves like never before.

Don't take anything I said too personally. And as for the "bush man", it is a pigeon English of "naive"; it isn't as insultive as being applied to normal English dialect. If you didn't know, obviously you never socialized with anyone here.

Submitting....
