I really appreciate Danielpipes.org as a provider of platform for healthy debate among civilizations..

We are told by our religion to respect others specially those who were given book of Allah (God) Allmigthy...Unfortunately whenever Quran is quoted by non muslims..every quote is without reference to context...You know "Half Truth is equal to Full Lie"...It is clearly stated that when some one is peaceful with you then there is no point in having war ...if someone is against you or help your enemies then you are bound to fight against them...In this context..what America is doing is right on their part..if they kill millions with Atomic Bomb..then they justify according to above rule..so muslims in the history were doing the same..In Quran it was not told to kill individuals..and during the life of prophet..all wars were fought outside the cities..

In this civilized world we have seen recent masacres

The Srebrenica Massacre, also known as Srebrenica Genocide, [1] was the July 1995 killing of an estimated 8000 Bosniak males, in the region of Srebrenica referencfe . Unfortunately this massacre was under the nose of UN peace keeping force with strong majority of western civilized and educated http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Srebrenica_massacre

Chechnya Massacre
RUSSIANS faced evidence of a massacre of civilians by soldiers in Chechnya for the first time www.telegraph.co.uk/htmlContent.jhtml?html=/archive/1999/12/24/wruss24.html

this clearly indicates that massacres and killings cannot be associated with muslims alone..

Being muslim we are bound to respect each prophet and we consider all of them messengers of Allah not Son or otherwise...

"Christianity is a faith in which God sent His Son to die for you."

It is the main point of difference between us..

Allah (God) is creator of universe and every entity in it..He is the one who cannot be compared to anyone...

Adam (AS) was created in first place..the first human being..why he is not considered Son of God?? Allah has shown that

* HE can create human being from nothing..
* He can create women from the rib of a man..example Hawa (AS) the Eve
* And finaly he showed that He can create human without male partner / husband..example Hazrat Essa (AS) the Jesus Christ..all are miracles of Allah (swt)...

Being creator he is not bound to follow any rules..He can do anything He wants..

On these facts..we being muslims..are not convinced that Jesus was Son of God..infact this is a fabricated story planted in Bible..which has no single original version in place.A Big Reality.Bible unfortunately is not in its original form because Quran says that all old books of Allah though true are invalid after revelation of Quran..

We all are sharing this earth and have right to live together and listen to each other with open hearts..we have share our view but cannot impose it on others..

I hope that my tone was friendly and not humiliating like my friend Gaye Carman
