The thing i see here is that you fail to comprehend is just because i am muslim i live or do what other muslims do. I didnt know that you were a scholar in islam to tell me what the arabic word islam derive from. again it derives from the word peace or salam. islam, salam get it ?or maybe i should say sholom same meaning(peace). What gets me is that i go to many different forms and meet all kinds of people from different backgrounds and faiths. Now i do this to get a feeling of what the world is like different ideas and how people think on certain topics.

What i learned was that the human being can be violent without action but with words and that can lead to action. I have chatted with some of the most absent minded jews,christian and muslims ever. And its no wonder why the jews feel as they are above man, christians think you're the new choosen people of God and only them will prosper and my so called brothers and sister of islam feel that the whole world are at odds with them just because of islam.

This message is for all faith, race, gender, creed and so on. Every living thing on this planet we call earth, from the smallest atom to the largest element. We are made of the same...there is really only one race( forget color and ethnic background because we all can trace our DNA back to the first man and we are all from him (brothers and sisters). We are the human race and if we dont look out for ourselves then who will?

God put us on this earth with laws to go by and who really follows them to a T?. regardless what you are because we all basically have the same source to start with the ten commandments. As i say many times that the greatest trick the devil ever did was to convince the world he didn't exits. Now many faiths believe in this evil creator but don't believe that it has entered their own faiths. It just make me sick not one human being on this freakin' planet is perfect, never have, never will. People claiming the Prophets(pbut) are all perfect...then guess what they wasnt human because God made all imperfect. The only perfect most gracious, beneficent force throughout this universe is God.

Then you have these so called righteous people claiming a faith and how righteous they are but doing everything else but the right thing....Yes muslims too!! yeah i said it and yes i am a Muslim and proud to be, but whats going on in the world today is all but what islam stands for. killing innocent women,children, hate, rape of women and disrespect. blaming everyone else but you as an indiviual muslim. you will answer to God on the last day....every man will have his turn also. the problems isn't the jewish faith,christianity, islam or any other faith......IT'S THE HUMAN BEINGS....US PEOPLE THAT LOOK LIKE US, BLEED LIKE US, SLEEP LIKE US ETC.

All faiths are right but man can't get it right.....The only way i think we will ever live in peace in love with all faiths is when jesus(pbuh) returns. Because he is the only one who can put a stop to this or he will return once we accomplished that goal. which i fear won't be in my lifetime.
