Poor Shabina Yousuf, who is the Brain washed one?

I am sure Islam has peace love and moon beams in it somewhere, But it also has hate intolerence and murder in there as well. Christians and Jews do not fly planes into Mecca or blow up ships etc . even Christian extremists do not do this (they seem to do it to there own),although I know jews were not beyond this in building their home country, and to be honest the Arab world had its chance to get rid of them and failed- the Lebanese, Jordanians, Egyptians, and of course the Palestinians. The unfortunate thing is that Islam & the middle east seem to think(I guess not all) that by blowing things up that the Jews & the yanks will go away. guess again, that will never happen and at the very very most the yanks may go but where will the jews go? back to Germany?

I understand that the Palestinians are fighting for their own country and good on them. but sooner or later they will have to learn that they lost, so unstrap the explosives and get over it and then peace may come.

Also we must see the outlawing of wahhabi teachings and the paying of Terrorists by Arab royalty & Charities (what a waste of money that must now seem). If there is love and tolerance in Islam then this must be taught in the religious schools not Jihad and kill the infidels.

I know from personal experiance living in a country that has a high muslim influx that as a westerner I did not appreciate all the muslim kids running around my street cheering when the world trade centre came crashing down or making gun symbols at any white person who happened to drive down the street (they seemed to stop when Bin Laden and the Taliban were beaten) or to hear the families of some young muslims who gang raped 4 girls that these girls were asking for it ( yes dragged into cars taken to fields pack rapped by between 8-10 guys and asked if they liked it Leb style while being held down sounds like asking for it to me).

It is most unfortunate that when criticism is aimed at the arab world they stand up and say 'its not our fault ,we are victims. dont pick on us' instead of 'sorry for that, we will try and address the problem and take steps to make sure that it does not happen again'. even that could go along way to helping.

One last thought, Christians & jews seemed to have fixed things with one & other and get along quite well and lets face it the jews crucified the leader of the christian church so we would have good reason to be mad but we all worked it out, and they dont even really believe in Christ but hey no problem. Islam belives I think in christ being a prophet or messenger but they just dont want to be friends with anyone. history shows us groups like this are generally wiped out in time, this would be a pity as Islam has given us many great things through out the middle ages. it is a pity all they give now is grief and pain. So if Christians and Jews can get along please Islam come join the party we'll have a BBQ kosher and Halal are both on the menu and will cook up some steaks ...
