I have a very sincere question for muslims, but first I want to make a comment.

First of all I would like to talk about respecting one another. Here in America we have people of every color, race and religion.Everyone has neighbors living around them that are not all are the same religion .Yet we do not see neighbors against neighbors running through the streets shooting , or suicide bombers blowing up one another, we don't send our children strapped with bombs or guns killing neighbors.

Yes we have crime, (killings, rapes etc. I won't deny that) we have lunatics like every country does, but my point is what we see in muslims countries is muslims against muslims shia against sunni's and vice versa. We have Catholics, Lutherans, Baptists,Muslims etc. but no way do we take up arms against each other because of the way they believe. See here in my country religion is a personal choice and as a Christian , I admit I would love to see all people become believers in Jesus Christ and believe as I do but I refuse to hate or kill if one doesn't believe as I do. As I stated religion is a personal choice that is between GOD and that person and no one and I repeat no one should hate or kill of force someone to believe as they do.I have friends of all different faiths and different view points on religion but in no way do I think my way of thinking should be their way of thinking, they are entitled to their own choices .

I respect them and will in no way hate them or have thoughts of killing them . In my heart I deeply believe that hate and killing is totally against GOD , after all we are all created through the will of GOD . I in all honesty cannot see GOD accepting the killings of any humans as we see world wide.

Now here is my question........... Why is the world is there so much division in islam? Why do sunni's think they are so much better the shia's and their way of believing is totally right , and, vice versa. Why if you all claim to be muslims, do you feel the need to slaughter one another? Why if you believe allah created muslims do you feel the desire and need to show hate and contempt to each other. Most muslims here in the US don't seem to carry that same hate for each other as we see in the islamic countries. Muslims here I know don't wage wars against each other . I feel this type of behavior is the work of satan, satan stands for destruction and evil.

If muslims want the world to look at islam as meaning peace, then by all means don't you think you ALL should demonstrate to the rest of the world the meaning of what islam is suppose to stand for? Right now in muslim countries you are showing the world islam is a hateful and bloody religion. One more comment, why in the blue blazes when a muslim kills do they yell and shout out " allah akbar" ? Doesn't that mean you are praising GOD? Think about it , you may be praising GOD you aren't dead but my gosh, praising GOD because you just killed another person!...

Do you in all honesty think GOD is happy and proud of a fool that just killed a human being or human beings? Do you honestly believe by killing God will allow you to go to heaven ? I highly doubt that GOD is that type of GOD and if this is the way allah really feels that he is proud of a persons killings then actually he is not a god I want in my life, because the GOD I love and worship is a God of love and teaches us NOT TO KILL for HIM. He is not a GOD that is helpless and is not in need of HIS children's help for any reason or cause.
