in response to reader comment: I read the Koran

Salaam my bother of Japan, Peace be unto you. I am actualy taken aback by your response to reading the Holy Quraan. But no matter, Don't feel despondent that you have not found what you were looking for in the book of God. While others have found the answers they were looking for, You have have chose to look for reasons to hate this Holy Book of God.

Again I say to you dont feel put down by what you found in the book sometimes when reading a book that is foreign to your own beliefs you may not get the message the first time round, But be patient, wait until your heart softens against the confusion or maybe hatred that you feel for Muslims and Islam, Forgive me if i am wrong in thinking that it is hatred, but this seems to be the most common criteria for people finding the wrong answers in this Holy book of God.

If you take a person like Bill Warner, This man has a burning hatred for Muslims and Islam. So he reads the Quraan to find fault and axtracts from it only what he feels will further his inhumane cause of spreading confusion and hatred for Muslims and Islam. Imagine him becoming the president of the U.S.A. Us Muslims would probably be wiped of the face of the Earth. But did you know that there were people like him in the history of Islam and I am talking about a man who was Islam's worst enemy and when his heart softened he too became a Muslim. So be patient my brother, and I have hope that you will not become like the Bill Warners of today, Soften your heart and then try reading the Holy Quraan again.

Your brother in South Africa ( Yusuf Armien ) Salutes you, and wish you everything of the best in all your ventures. INSHA-ALLAH.
