do i believe they are a viable form of governance? If so do tell where on g-d's green earth is islam ,as a state, a beacon of progress ? YES and NO...meaning that Islam itself is a great religion but through time man has corrupted just about every scripture of faith through his or her own interpretion. AS i said before the quran is the only scripture that has not be tampered with since being written in book form.

But that doesn't mean that the quran itself wasn't interpreted differently by many muslims or converts before being written into text. The word quran means (recite) like many muslims now even more in that time memorized it. but many being from all parts they could have eazy been the wong interpretion during that time and age. During the age of religious battles between jews and christians .

Being that muslim believes the quran speaks for past,present and future. Its very easy to confuse which is which for someone acting out of anger trying to use scriptures. To me islam is everything wrapped into one. All three great faiths without flaw but man and his action make islam look as if it is. See ALLAH said that man could not make another book like such and challenge man to try. It hasn't been yet and wont but what man has manage to do is corrupted the mines of people. But again the quran speaks of this by saying their will be many who claim islam but are not.

Its just as congressman keith ellison said:

As to whether he felt he had a greater sensitivity to the Arab perspective than other congressmen, he said, "I know Islam, I know the religion, I read the Koran every day. When I went to the [Aksa] Mosque, it wasn't just a tourist site for me, it was a holy site. I felt the affinity for it."

But what he doesn't understand, Ellison said emphatically, were those - he called them "crazies" - who read the same Koran he did and came away with a license to murder.

"The murderers and the extremists are into something I don't know about," he said. "I don't know how they read what they read and come out with what they do. They wouldn't consider me a Muslim because I'm American, because I believe in the unity of people and that we are all on the planet to work together."

"The people who did 9/11 are hostile to everyone, and in fact if you are not the type of Muslim they want you to be, they would be happy to kill you too," Ellison said. "I am not a Muslim in their eyes because I am for tolerance and inclusion, and they don't want an Islam that is inclusive."

To me i see that judaism, christianity,islam and all other faiths that have good intent for mankind but man ourselves destroy that. Like racism which many white christians hate jews and blacks..saying the bible speaks it. Now when one reads the bible in deuteronomy to many it talks about enslaving blacks and as a curse to be black. That why many white christians believe that jews and blacks are below them and hate but many other christian dont. Get my drift?

and with today technology...One should now that the african was the frist man on earth and without africans there won't be humans period.....but the peaceful people of islam have to stop being scared and be proude of islam and stand up to fight these evil so called muslims. Even though there are still so called jews and christians claiming the faiths. Both religions has battled through time trying to keep its true identity. On the outside.. yes but the so-calleds are still planning from the inside now!!! Only G-d knows who is true followers from all faiths. All faith even they have different names they all have the same intent for G-d and mankind. I see myself represent Islam and any faiths that is peaceful.

I'm a muslim because I submit myself to the Lord of the world. also because I testify that 'There is no god but One True God, and Mohammad is the last messenger of God.".

I'm a Hindu because a hindu is a person who seeks the Truth. And God is the Eternal Truth, the Reality behind everything.

I'm a Christian because I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in his second coming as the messiah. Jesus is the Spirit from God (Isa ruhullah).

I'm a Jew because I believe in Moses as great Prophet of God who spoke to God (Musa kalimullah).

I'm a Buddhist because I seek enlightenment (Nirvana) of my soul. I pay my respect to Gautama Buddha who is one of the most brilliant personality who walked on this earth.

I'm a Taoist who believe in Tao, the Ultimate Reality behind everything.

And I have no hesitation to say to all other religion that I belong to them as well. They are all my beloved brother and sisters as One God's creation. We belong to the same family. Our blood is the same, our feelings and emotions are same. We are all seeking the same goal only at different path. And all the atheist are my brothers and sisters as well. They also have a different path to seek the Knowledge.

We are all on a journey, knowingly or unknowingly we are trying to reach to the Ultimate goal.
Some will struggle more, some will less.
Some are on straight path, some are not.


hope that answered your ?????'s
