I dont know how to respond other than by saying islam is not on trial, so unless you want to actually debate islam, go ahead, if you want to "convict" islam, then you are ... Most everyone in the world knows that Muslims are for the most part peaceful.
The few that believe Islam is on trial : i wont try to debate with youI only hope that you guys see the light some day and you realize what you have been saying
I do not have to defend terrorists claiming to worship the same god.
You want me to condemn their actions
I, as a Muslim, condemn (not apologize for, but condemn) any terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Islam or God, or the prophet.
I, as a Muslim, believe that women are equal to men, and should be treated as such by all who claim to be Muslim
I, as a Muslim, believe that so called Muslim countries cannot actually be Muslim countries if they are tyrannical, or if they have an authoritarian government, just because the people in the country are Muslim does not make the government or the state Muslim
So there you go
take it or leave it
im not trying to appease you,
im just saying how crazy you guys are to believe i in any way support terror, or apologize for terror, or am part of a violent cult.
