in response to reader comment: The poor tactics

While you, "strongly condemn the current wave of suicide attacks killing huge numbers of innocent people", millions of Muslims, including office workers of CAIR, celebrated the murder of 3000 Americans in the attack by 19 Muslims on the Twin Towers on Sept 11, 2001. Yet you want us to believe that, "Islam is a religion of peace".

Tell me Mansoor, were the 19 Muslims, who were well educated and some of them from wealthy families, "victims of hostility", and that's why they committed murder? Or was it because they wanted to go to "heaven" and enjoy the company of 72 Houris? Is that the reason that Muslims have been committing murders since 1969, because, "in the present age they are facing much of the hostility?" Please Mansoor, detail some examples of this hostility. When Iran and Iraq went to war with each other, from 1980 to 1989, and 2 million Muslims were killed in that war, was it because the Shi'ites and Sunnis were facing "much of the hostility" from the rest of the world?

Another aspect of your article is that quoting "Aya's" from the Qur'an, "is a very old and toothless tactic". Your strategy is excellent, since anytime someone quotes from the Qur'an, and you disapprove, well it's out of context. I think I get it now. Quoting a nasty "Aya" is always out of context. Having read 3 "Glorious Qur'ans" by 3 different authors, and I quote from them, well, they are out of context.

Tell me Mansoor, is this quote out of context?
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
Sad said, "Kill their men and take their women and children as captives, "On that the Prophet said, "You have judged according to Allah's Judgment," The Prophet took Rehana as his share of the booty.

Whats wrong with you Muslims? You have set your sights to low. Don't you know that the world belongs to you. Instead of fighting the Jews, you need to fight the whole world. You should've had control over the whole world by now. Allah is angry because you have forgotten. Hadith Volume 9, Book 85, Number 77

"You should Know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to exile you from this land, so whoever among you owns some property, can sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle."

Tell me Mansoor; Are these words out of context, and if they are, what is the real meaning or what context do they belong in?
