You can repeat that all you like, the fact is that Islam is indeed on trial in the court of world opinion. And it is doing rather poorly in its presentation. Islam will be judged by the actions of its followers, and all we see from its followers is terrorism, indifference to terrorism, and refusal to reform.

MM: "Most everyone in the world knows that Muslims are for the most part peaceful."

Actually, that's either a lie or a delusion. Most people can see how depraved Islam is, based on the actions of its followers and their refusal to accept responsibility for reforming their death-worshipping cult.

MM: "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"

It's not just a "few" who understand that Islam is on trial, and we do indeed know precisely what we are saying. It's called "truth".

MM: "You want me to condemn their actions"

Wrong. Talk is cheap, and meaningless in my eyes. We see faux "condemnation" of Islamic terror every day, often from the very Islamic leaders who are calling for terrorism. I cite Arafat as a prime example. What I want to see from you is reform.

MM: "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."

You are living in denial. You have adamantly refused to admit that Islam is evil, that Islam directly encourages terrorism...that there are no free, prosperous, tolerant Muslim countries, etc. Your refusal to accept the rather unpleasant realities of Islam makes you complicit in the reign of terror Islam proposes to invoke on the world.

The first step in correcting a problem is in identifying and admitting it. Unless and until you can accept the truth that Islam is inherently violent, then you can never be an ally to peace, freedom, or happiness.
