TO Adem (Aug 30/02): Get your facts straight

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Why Christians hate Muslims.....

Just a quick note to clear up a few things.

1. Neil Armstrong is NOT a muslim. That is Islam propaganda started by some wishful thinkers trying to boast Islam. Despite this, some Islam papers, websites and radio stations still try to spread these lies. It has gotten so bad, Armstrong has had to get spokespeople to deny the rumour (As Armstrong does not do interviews). Check it out for yourself. Even some of the Islam papers have recognised this. Other baseless "hoaxes" presently available in the market are: Jacques Cousteau, Michael Jackson, Maurice Bucaille, King Offa of England and, Mike Tyson became Muslim. Christian apologists discovered wreckage of Noah's ark in turkey, Prophet Muhammad's name on a piece of wood from Noah's ark (found in Russia) ,and Prophet Muhammad's name foretold in Hindu Scriptures. ALL THESE ARE SIMPLY BOGUS SPECULATIONS.

2. Muslims Conquering Christian lands? You call slaughtering thousands of innocent people Conquering?

3. Islam does NOT have the fastest growing rate of conversion; Christianity does. Islam has the fastest growth of numbers due to the fact that more than half of the worlds population of Muslims live in Asia....the fastest growth of population in the world. All these Muslims inherit the religion (i.e. their parents were muslims , and their parents were muslims and so on), they don't convert to it as you implied.

4. Most muslims were Christians? I am assuming that because your english is so poor, that you just made a mistake with your translation. If not, then you are seriously misguided on that one. That is just total rubbish.

5. USA attacking muslims? Any US attack has been in response to yet another muslim rampage through innocent villages/towns/countries. Furthermore, the 5000 or so innocent people killed on September 11 and the 188 Australians killed in Bali did not contribute in any way to the death of muslims. I am gob-smacked that someone would have the unmittigated gall to even TRY and justify the September 11 attacks.

6. Islam teaches hatred and death to it's enemies; Muhammad himself called for death to Christians and Jews on his deathbed.

Christianity on the other hand, teaches love, forgiveness and peace to all...including your enemies.

Anyhow, just thought I'd clear that up for anyone that might be interested.
