dear john ,

you are right, there is a huge difference between me and mother teressa, and i dont think i can be like her someday. but john , who knows what is gonna happen 20 years later? you do not know me and do not know what i am made of, i mean , i am 17 years old, and be sure that i wont let my life go in vain, i promise.

tent? and i thought you are modern moderate undrestanding and well educated people? it seems i was wrong. any way, when you talk about islam please do not mention the last 150 years, i think you know well what i mean, besides, saudi arabia? come on for god sake no one in the islamic world, at least in my community, agrees with their policy, and i am responsible of my words. there is a sentence in quran says:" no compulsion in islam", if you wanna know real islam go and read the translation of quran or see how muslims lived 700 years ago .

yes , i am thankful to the system i live in , i respect them and i confess that i like living here. i can learn , go shopping , go to work and no one except sick people will look at me. and i didnt demand that you wear the hijab, i am just asking that you may please respect it and treat me like a human being because simply you are not better than me, and be sure that normal muslims like me will not demand the right of fighting.

before i go i want to correct something, the word jihad in arabic means struggle for life not fight, in islam when you are going to work you are in jihad, when you are learning you are in jihad, and when a thief comes to steal your properties and stand in his face you are in jihad , and when i am writing this letter for you now i am in jihad. i wish i corrected something.
