I read your comment and totally agree to your statement that Muslim Governments do not have good record as far as social liberty and human rights are concerned. But to add to your knowledge, just a century back, Muslims were living in huge and strong empires like that Turkish and Indian. It was British who invaded these territories and in revenge of historic Islamic conquering they divided those empires into numerous small countries and territories.

Although they did their best by killing and looting the wealth of these empires and then creating many small and powerless muslim nations, but it turned out to be a biggest head ache for the West. These countries were earlier dominated by British/Christian way of learning and the bread which came out was Anglo Muslim confused nations, which was uncertain about their identity.

Muslims now understand very well about all the conspiracies and wrong doings did by christians and jews against them and they are strongly prepared now. I think the blood of muslims is also red as yours but when 100s and 100ds of innocent children are killed in wild bombings on Muslim Countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, it iwill be the matter of shame for muslims to stand still and and see their loved ones die in their hands. The reaction of their grievances is what u r seeing in the shape of terrorism. I think you are just seeing at one side of the picture.

Now when Islam is experiencing a stage of revival, west is fearing because Islam always errupts as volcano and takes every thing with it. US and its allies did right by helping Afghan Muslims to oust Russians and later resulting in collapse of the super power. But at the same time, it created a feeling in Muslims that nothing is invincible and they can demolish any superpower with strong will.

This is what we see in Iraq and Afghanistan now, the number of US and allied solidiers losing their lives increases day by day but the result is still beyond their control. Right now west is fighting not with a bunch of soldiers, when common man enters the war field he has lot of anger and revenge in his mind and thats the problem which is now going beyond the control of the existing superpower. At present, no argument, no yelling and no pressure can stop the volcano of the revival of islamic supremecy. Allah says in Quran that Allah is the best planner although human beings think they are best in their actions.

Lastly, I would say that concept of God in religions other than Islam is based on human likes and dislikes. Allah doesnt need to get himself fit in the slot of your likes and dislikes. Allah is what he has explained himself in Quran, the powerfull, the great and the sole ruler of the whole universe. You cannot say there are three and there is a son of God. Allah doesnt need son or any other soul, this is all humanly created ideas. Whether you believe in true Allah or not, its all your choice and at the day of judgement you will be infront of Allah with empty bags and fatigue faces and waiting to be dropped in hell fire. At that time all your arguments and all your wrong conepts will not help you. In Quran Allah says "

[10:54] If anyone who did wrong possesses all that is on the earth, he would (agree to) ransom himself with it. And they will conceal their remorse when they will see the punishment. And the matter will be decided between them with justice and they will not be wronged. [10:55] Look! To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. Look! Allah‘s promise is certainly true, but most of them do not know (Verse from Chapter Jonah)

Finally I would say that we have little time to choose from right to wrong. After our death our time will be over. Allah will then not allow us to go back and correct our faith. At that time only hell fire will be our fate, so beware, correct yourself with open eyes.
