Real muslims who truly follow the quran never attacked any nation. I want to ask you first about spanish christians who have persecuted the aztecs in mexico killing millions and forcing them to catholicism in addition to that enslaved them. There where also the british settlers who attacked north america wiping out all of the indian tribes and enforcing there religion on others.

Look i want to tell you something which i am sure of and if it was not true i would have left islam. Jihad in islam can only be done under two cases. First of all if muslim lands have been attacked by other countries or tribes. The second thing is that if muslims are subject to being killed i a country because of their faith.

I want to ask you something, if russia attacked the united states then young americans fought for the united states in order to protect their land, culture . children and future this is jihad in my opinion and those americans who will die for the defence of their country are shaheeds. The other thing which i want to tell you about is that islam does not favour any race, when someone become muslim then he is the same as any other muslim. In christianity there is low class christians who are the black africans and our brothers arab chrisitans and they also face dicrimination like muslims or even more.

The other fact i would like to make is that most of extremist muslim terrorists who really should by fought are calling for one thing, the libaration of palastine . The problem between arab muslims and westerns now is to do with palastine and i think america is the only country which could end radical islam terrorism by giving a fair solution for the israel palastinian case and allowing two countries israel and palastine to live together in peace. This can only be done by going back to 1967 border line and accepting international law. As long as palastine is conquered by jews and islamic countries are under attack and persecution then radical islamic groups will have the advantage or increasing their dirty terrorist attacks against muslims and non muslims.

I agree that there are some islamic radicals who would kill anyone on the base of their religion for no right, but i can ensure you that around 80 % of radical muslims became radical because of the us exccessive support for isreal and trying not to offer a fair case for palastine. You know me myself have suffered from radical muslims because they also destroy our own islamic majority countries . Thats why i am calling for a fair case for palastine and the second thing the united states should use more tolerant strategy in iraq and try to create a strong goverment there which would be able to defend it.

I have always opposed the war on iraq because there was no good reason for this war which i recognise an american terrorism against iraq. I only supported the war on afganistan to end those bunch of bigot talibanies who the world should all fight . In order to be able to fight radical islam in return european goverments should decrease muslims immigration to thier countires because really here in our islamic countries we need our own people in order to develop. European countries and united states which aid poor islamic countires to develop their weak economies in order that they be able to halt muslims immigration and even encourage their muslim population to return to their orginal homes. By this christian countries will be able to defend their culture and life style and we here in islamic countries get back our people who we really need to develop our own countries.
