>>dont ever tell me that my religion is the reason that terrorists killed innocents 6 years ago today. there are many reasons, not all of which i claim to fully understand, but Islam was not one of those reasons. <<

Yes there were many reasons, including American foolishness in thinking they can remake the world in their image by force of arms, but the most important ones are found in the Koran.

>>maybe the people doing it thought they were doing it for that reasons, but they werent, they were doing it because they were angry and foolish, and thought that they had justification.<<

Of course they had justification. Justification from the Koran. It tells them to go forth heavily or lightly armed (box cutters) to fight the infidels. It tells them Allah guarantees them, yes guarantees them, paradise for killing and getting killed for Islam. You know the verses, Moderate Muslim. They were probably angry but they were not foolish, they KNEW they were going straight to paradise without even having to wait for judgment day.

>>i dont want excuses. i dont want crap about how the Quran teaches us to hurt non Muslims, it doesnt. i dont want to hear that any of this crap is my fault, and i dont want to hear that i ahve to apologize for it. it wasnt me. i didnt do it. <<

Moderate Muslim, have you heard of the word DENIAL. You have just given us a perfect demonstration of what the word means. You are saying that all the verses quoted here directly from the Koran of casting terror into unbelievers, cursing and abusing unbelievers is crap. Yes it's this high explosive crap from the Koran that was filled in the heads of the terrorists that brought down the towers.

>>my fellow Muslims who truly follow the quran did not do this. dont tell me that Islam is a problem for the west, its not. we dont want you all to follow shariah. sharia is for Muslim countries.<<

Again denial. Why are westerners killed and threatened for using their right to freedom of speech in their own countries. Theo van Gogh. Salman Rushdi. The Danish Cartoonists. Why are there calls for Sharia in Canada? Why is there a Muslim parliament in Britain? Why do Muslims demand Islamic laws in India.

>>America is not a muslim country, it is a melting pot of many ethnicities. we dont want to blow you up, this isnt 24.<<

Have you heard of CAIR and what it wants to accomplish in America. Are you in dar al Islam or in dar al harb. If according to Islam you are in dar al harb what is your Islamic duty?

>>i know that there are radicals who would like to harm america out there, but they are not as numerous nor as powerful as you have been told. the muslim ummah needs to stop them, to get on its feet and show the whole world that Islam is not a religion for arabs, or for pakistanis, or for Americans, but for all, black or white, rich or poor, strong or weak. Islam is not a racist entity.<<

Moderate Muslim have you asked yourself why is it that no other religions have to defend their religion the way Muslims have to. How come Buddhists, Hindus, Christians or any other religion doesn't keep whining about how their religion is misunderstood, mistranslated etc.

Only Islam seems designed for hijacking by terrorists. Isn't that a failure of the religion. Have you ever asked yourself that simple question instead of this childish complaint of being hijacked by a few and Islam being misunderstood.

>>Those who have taken Islam as their banner need to stop. Terrorists need to stop using my religion in their name, <<

Have you ever considered the fact you moderates are the ones who are trying to hijack the religion of the terrorists. An unbiased reading of the Koran will convince you that the people you call terrorists are the ones proudly holding aloft the banner of Islam. The Koran in so many places says Allah instills terror into people's hearts and minds. The prophet says he was made victorious with terror. Gazwas and wars are part of the prophet's sunnah.

Moderate Muslim don't use the terrorists' religion in your name and try to make it sound moderate.

,>>and in the name of billions of other people who do not agree with them.who condemn them. who mourn the loss of life in New York, in Pennsylvania, and in Maryland, of people who could be with their families, but for the malice of angry killers, who thought that they were in the right.<<

In six years your memory seems to have been wiped clean of the images of Muslims celebrating all over the world. We saw the joy on the faces of quite a few of those billions when the towers came down.

This is typical of moderate Muslims. They can remember in great detail what people of other religions did to them. The history they remember has a large number of blank pages in it. Like what the crusaders did is known to all Muslims. But what led to the crusades is an area of darkness in their minds. Their eyes do not penetrate there. They can tell you how horrible the Hindu rulers were to their own people. But they can't remember what Muslims did in India for a thousand years.

>> I ask Allah (God) (swt) to help everyone around the world, rich, poor, black, white, or brown, Muslim or non Muslim, who is in need of help, and to plant the want for knowledge and learnedness in the hearts of everyone.<<

That prayer of yours just goes to show your poor knowledge of Islam. You are going against the tenets of Islam by praying for non-Muslims

009.113 YUSUFALI: It is not fitting, for the Prophet and those who believe, that they should pray for forgiveness for Pagans, even though they be of kin, after it is clear to them that they are companions of the Fire.

And is there any non-Muslim who is not a companion of the fire?

>>Ameen and Ramadan Mubarak.<<

Same to you. And may Allah forgive you for praying for non-Muslims on the eve of this holy month.
