in response to reader comment: Open questions to a Moslem

I THINK THAT IT IS APPROPRIATE FO ME TO "PICK UP THE GAUNTLET" AS THE WRITER NEEDS TO BE EDUCATED A LITTLE.

LETTS BREAK IT DOWN STEP BY STEP ...

QUESTION 1- "WHY DO YOU KEEP COMING HERE" ? ...

IF YOUR JUST TALKING ABOUT THE LAST 100 YEARS MUSLIMS HAVE COME HERE ALONG WITH LOTS OF OTHER PEOPLE. HERE TO ME IS BRITAIN BUT YOU MIGHT LIVE IN ANOTHER "WESTERN COUNTRY". MOST PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME TO BRITAIN IN LAST 100 YEARS HAVE DONE SO FROM EX COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES. WESTERNERS CAME TO THEIR COUNTRIES, INVADED THEM, COMMITTED MANY ATTROCITIES AND WHEN THEY WERE FINALLY KICKED OUT THEY HELPED TO SET UP GOVERNMENTS IN THOSE COUNTRIES WHICH SUPPORTED THE WEST. MANY PEOPLE CAME AS WORKER ANDE WERE INVITED. MOST DOCTORS IN BRITAIN SEEM TO COME FROM PAKISTAN OR INDIA. I HAVE MANY WHITE FRIENDS, MY MOTHER IS EVEN WHITE AND I AM NOT RACIST, BUT I DONT KNOW ANY WHITE NON/MUSLIM DOCTORS. MOST IMMIGRANTS TO BRITAIN ARE FROM POLLAND BUT THIS IS NOT PORTRAYED IN THE MEDIA.

MOST MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE HELD AT THE GUN POINT OF WESTERN ROCKETS AND NUCLEAR MISSILES. THE PEOPLE WHO COME "HERE" ARE USUALLY FLEEING REGIMES THAT THE WEST HELPED SET UP. FOR THE RECORD IRAQ AND PALESTINE ARE FULL OF WESTERNERS. IN PALESTINE THE WESTERNERS ARENT JUST THERE TO KILL PEOPLE RAPE WOMEN AND ROB OIL THEY ARE ACTUALLY LIVING THERE THEY EVEN TRIED TO GIVE THE COUNTRY A NEW NAME (ISRAEL).

THE SECOND QUESTION ABOUT US HAVING A LACK OF INTELEGENCE

IN IRAN 94 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION CAN READ AND WRITE. THIS IS MORE THAN BRITAIN AND AMERICA.

60 PERCENT (THAT MORE THAN HALF) OF UNIVERSITY GRADUATES ARE WOMEN AND THERE ARE THE SAME NUMBER OF WOMEN IN IRANS PARLIAMENT AS IN TURKEYS.

IN TERMS OF GENERAL BACKWARDNESS EUROPE BELIEVED THAT THE WORLD WAS FLAT UNTILL 500 YEARS AGO. IN 9TH CENTURY MUSLIM ASTRONOMERS USED TELESCOPES (UNHEARD OF IN EUROPE FOR ANOTHER 600 YEARS) TO PLOT THE COURSE AND MOVMENT OF THE COSMOS. THEY CALCULATED THE TILT OF THE EARTH AND ALL OF OUT MATHERMATICAL KNOWLEDGE COMES FROM ARABS. AL JEBRA, AL GARITHYM AND MOST IMPORTANT THE ZERO. HAVE YOU EVER TRIED DOING LONG DIVISION IN ROMAN NUMERALS? 1234567890 CAME FROM ARABS THEY ACTUALLY GOT THEM FROM INDIA AND THEN BROUGHT THEM TO EUROPE. CHEMISTRY (AL CHEMY) IS ANOTHER ONE. EVEN THE WORD HOSPITAL IS ARABIC AND AL COHOL WAS USED IN STERALISING. EUROPEANS DECIDED TO DRINK IT INSTEAD.

ISLAM ENCOURAGED THE FREEING OF SLAVES AND GAVE PRISONERS OF WAR HUMAN RIGHTS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY. WHEN THEY CONQUERED THEY MADE THEIR SUBJECTS THEIR EQUALS. THEY PROTECTED CHRISTIANS AND JEWS FROM THE SAVAGES IN EUROPE. ABOUT 1000 YEARS AGO WHEN SPAIN WAS MUSLIM JUST ONE CITY HAD OVER 70 LIBRARYS ONE OF WHICH HAD OVER HALF A MILLION BOOKS. AT THE SAME TIME IN PARIS THERE WAS ONE LIBERARY WITH LESS THAN 100 BOOKS.

WHY DOES AMERICA HAVE TO INSTALL DEMOCRACY? WELL I DIDNT KNOW THAT THEY DID. I THOUGHT THEY DIVIDED UNITED FACTIONS ON SECTARIAN LINES SO THEY COULD RULE THEM MORE EASILY. THEY SET UP BROTHELS AND IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN WOMEN HAVE NEVER BEEN LESS SAFE. THERE ARE PRISONS WHICH IS RENOWNED FOR TORTURE RAPE WOMEN PRISONERS CHILD PRISONERS ETC.

YOU CAN DENY ALL OF THIS OR YOU CAN LOOK AT THE FACTS FOR YOUR SELF

I MAY BE WRONG BUT I WOULD SAY THAT YOU ARE PROBABLY A ZIONIST (SOMEONE WHO GIVES CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM A BAD NAME) AND CAN NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO ACCEPT THE FACTS.

DONT WORRY ONE DAY YOU WILL CONVERT TO ISLAM

INSHALAH

IF NOT AND YOU CANT KEEP YOUR INCORRECT AND OFFENSIVE OPINIONS TO YOURSELF, AGREE TO DISSAGREE AND LIVE IN PEACE. WELL THERE MAY BE A FIRE KINDLED FOR YOU. THIS IS NOT A THREAT FROM ME BUT ONE FROM GOD
