Dear Donvan,

There is no dispute on who is innocent. All civilian population is innocent but the invading forces can be attacked. If you think invading forces in Afghanistan are innocent for Afghans than you are totally wrong. Neither Islam nor muslims(who submits his will to Allah) support killing civilian population even though they are enemies and hate them.

Yes. muslims love all humanity,even those who hate them. because they(non-believers) are unaware of what they are doing. You are simply invaded by the totally biased media. We love humanity because we are the best of nations as we believe in the last revelation of Allah. Allah has made us responsible to deliever his message to all the humanity,therefore we have to be the best. Hence if a muslim who is not the best human being is not submitting his will to Allah and is out of the boundary of Islam.

If you are struck on one cheek, offer the other also--- is a failed theory of Christanity as it was for the people of that time. After Christanity the next message of Allah is Islam. The Ingil(Bible) clearly indicated that a Phrophet Muhammd will be sent and all true Christains had accepted Islam. You think this theory of offering other cheek will do in this world now----- not at all you will have no cheeks.

Every now and then USA accepts killing of innocent civilians by their bombings. How do you justify that.

For one person, Usam bin Ladin, USA has invaded a country which had fought your war by defeting USSR. Look how brave are Afghans they clearly knew the consequences of not handing over Usam yet they did not do it as it was against their traditions to harm someone who helped them in bad times. One day Usama was Mujahid for USA when he was fighting against USSR and now USA wanted to come in Afghanistan so it made an excuse through want of Usama to invade Afghanistan. You talk of offering other cheek. Bush has killed so many innocent civilians(including your own forces), will you hand over him to Afghans if they want him. Usama is yet only a suspect. Who knows by being in mountains of Afghanistan how could he attack USA, the only super power left by the courtesy of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Please come out of your biased thinking,

Hamid Mahmood
