" 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). "

it is absolutely not true. How come that the most violent cult, built on slaughtering others means "peace"? it doesn't derive from 'salam'. It's one of the many lies spread.

It's not that I am a scholar, I am simply not blinded by hypocrisy. It's quite ironic that the self proclaimed religion of peace is responsible for the most hideous acts of violence around the world. ...

"Now i do this to get a feeling of what the world is like different ideas and how people think on certain topics."

wonderful, the point is that in muslim countries, the so called "other ideas" are suppressed. People who disagree are suppressed.

Do you think back when you were a christian that you would have had an easy life in Egypt or Syria?

I think if I had a time machine I would take you back there when you were a christian. The non-muslim population have nothing but nasty things to say about the muslim "masters". It's impossible that hindus, christians, jews, buddist are all liars. It's more likely that the muslims are liars.

"christians think you're the new chosen people of God and only them will prosper "

christians prosper even without the help of god. It wasn't god that made Marie Curie invent some medicines. Pay attention. You are healthy and alive in the west, not because of a christian god, but because of the human brain, that accessory that in the muslim territories is crippled.

"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?"

I don't understand why you keep talking about race. Race is not an issue, we are talking about an evil ideology like nazism and communism, with the difference that it's legitimised as a proper religion when in reality there's nothing spiritual about islam. It's a machine for suppression of humanity.

"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."

There is no such a thing like the commandments in islam. You just have some silly pillars that are self-serving. None of your pillars teach you mercy towards the others. Very different from 10 commandments.

10 commandments tell you not to steal or kill. Jesus didn't do either. Muhammed did both. ...
