I'm not responding to any particular comment that I read, instead I'm trying to point out some facts that many seem to disregard fully.
Muslims all over the world are considered members of one Ummah, and it's not fair to call it ' The Nation of Islam' and one of the unique characteristics about the faith is the fact that all Muslims are considered and seen by our LORD as brothers, regards to their various colors, ethnic origin, languages and geographical differences are often left unobserved.

Someone made a remark about the bombing in Madrid last year, saying that it had no connection with the situation in the West Bank. That's true, but one needs to realize that when a Muslim group of people becomes treated with atrocity, it's the duty of other Muslims to rise and stop the action at it's core. The Spanish government re-examined Spain's stand in the invasion of Iraq and acted accordingly, didn't they?

Wars and conflicts over religion have been in humanity for centuries, for example, Northern Ireland, what's the fighting and the mess was about? not about power, money, ethnicity or anything else but religion, isn't it?

Does anyone fail to realize that Israel has been the only country on the face of Earth that collected it's nationals from every ethnicity out there and the only thing that ties an Israeli national to an other Israeli national is religion? can we imagine a country out there for all Christians and Christians only, and an other country for Muslims and no one but Muslims? and how about a country for Southern Baptists, where Catholics may be treated like criminals ?

I would like to ask if a Catholic from MA considers a Catholic from Guam a brother? Better yet, if a white Methodist in Mississippi would be seen attending Sunday service in what they call " Black folks church "?I was giving a ride to a lady who lived next door to me in Raleigh,NC to Church one Sunday morning, I stopped at one of two churches across the street from each other, the lady almost had a fit, saying: ' The white people church is the other one over there, please take me there now.

I like everyone to know that if ever you get the chance to visit a mosque on Friday, you will be shocked to see Muslims standing in their prayer, shoulder to shoulder, black, white, red and yellow, facing Makkah, praying to one God who never looks at your color and mine, instead, he examines what in our hearts. And if you ask a heart doctor about the difference in people's hearts, he will tell you that all hearts are alike.
People, let's go back to being humans again. Let's stop the violence everywhere, because violence is evil everywhere and atrocity is also evil wherever it takes place. Isn't it about time? Does anybody have the right to tell anybody how to live, what to eat, wear or worship ? is it anyones duty to preach democracy to the world?
