I did not know technology has a religion. Does it? Or do the people who possess technology have a religion? Do you give the medicines for free or do you take a lot of money for them? Does Italy sell their automobiles , fashion designs, ceramics for free or do they charge money? How many could you produce if we didn't buy them?

I agree the Iran-Iraq war was inspired by themselves but didn't America play a part in supplying Iraq with arms? Where the Muslims responsible to the 2 World wars or Vietnam or the present war in Iraq? Christians and Jews are not infidels. We cannot call the people whose Prophets are also our Prophets infidels. Infidel is reserved for those who do not believe in the Oneness of God and worship many Gods. Christians and Jews are referred to by Muslims as People of the Book. We believe that the Holy Torah, The Holy Book of Psalms of the Prophet David the New Testament and the Quran e Karim are divinely inspired books. Unless I believe that and believe in your Prophets, I cannot be a Muslim.

In Iraq, were the Shi'a and the Sunni living together before Saddam Hussein? Yes they were . Introduce George W. Bush the pimp and they created all sorts of problems. I am quite willing to guarantee that should America withdraw from Iraq, they will come together and live as they have previously. Today the Al-Qaeda has spread because of the Great Pimp. Finally, we do not want to conquer the world unless we have to. What we want to do is live and worship as we do. We don't want to be exact copies of the West. We have our own culture and way of life and are proud of it. After years of being colonies, we are beginning to rediscover what it means to be Muslims. Far be it that I should tell you how to live or what to believe. You have to make your own choices and answer for them yourselves.

We are quite willing to take the same responsibility. The question here is can the world have different cultures and beliefs and live in peace or not? I sincerely don't want anything from your country or Europe for free and in return I will certainly not give anything for free.
