"What I noticed that most agressive messages come from Asia where Muslims and Hindus have religious and political conflicts. "

I read somewhere on the net that in the last 700 years 80 millions hindus have died at the hands of muslim. That might explain the bad blood bet. the two groups.

"Insulting messages about Islam come from Westeners. They easily call a messenger as a mass murderer, rapist etc. This is an education problem."

Indeed is an educational problem but it's mostly muslims who need to be educated. For the majority of islam followers the false sense of religious superiority give them an attitude that might rub people of others belief the wrong way.

Muslims see nothing wrong with that behavior, they don't think is mean to attack the most sensible spiritual fibers of hindus, jews and christians etc. because they have the "True Religion", but when the tide turn the other way then muslim feel that "those people show no respect", "they insult my faith" yada yada yada.

I noticed that most muslim posters in this forum will respect the faith of other people.....as long as it doesn't oppose any of the concepts stated in the Koran, but once you crossed that little imaginary line.........whew, it's open season on you.

Just an example; a muslim poster in this forum expresses his refusal to believe in a "God Man" -refering to Jesus- He doesn't use insults in his posts but his words might sound mean and disrespecful to christians. Since there's no blood no foul is called, that is his belief and nobody can force him to change his mind.

Another example is how some muslims call Jesus "a slave of Allah". I personally dislike that expression but we live in a free society and they are free to say whatever they want

Now lets's turn the table and see how it's hurts when someone expresses his opinion. Where I come from if you are 53 y.o. & have sex with a 8 year old girl (few months older) they call you a pedophile and lock you up for good.

If you manage to come out you'll have to register as a sex offender, ban from living near any school, force to reveal your residence to the authorities and even lose custody of any underage kid you have.

That's exactly what Mohamed did, he proposed to a six y.o. girl, married and sexually abused her when she wasn't even 9 y.o.

Later he asked her to clean the semen stain on his clothes so he could go for prayer. Do not even try to say she was older than that cuz then the most respected hadith will contradict you.

I hope you don't consider this post disrespectful, because Im just objectively stating the facts. That's why it is apalling to me and hundreds of millions of people that anyone would consider someone who committed such a heinous act a spiritual leader.

May God bless you.
