Dear Imdad Ali,

Your unwillingness to leave others to their own thinking. Your need to have everyone acknowledge your Imam's interpretation of Islam/Koran or whoever rules your region. (because you are not worthy to interpret the Koran) Your cry for religious respect while your brother Moslems are desecrating Buddhist temples in S.E. Asia or Christian Churches in Belgium or Jewish Temples in France or Hindu Temples in India.

Your cultural impositions when you migrate to non-Muslim countries creating social and political unrest. All this is intertwined with in your question of western cynicism and their mistrust of Islam and Moslems. Your beliefs and how they effect your behavior are the answer themselves to how such behavior affects western cultural norms of democracy and individual liberty. We are appalled that any nations political/religious leaders would call their subjects to strap bombs to the bellies of their children and send them off to explode in the hopes of killing a non-combatant. An unsuspecting civilian.

That any political/religious leader would give praise and shelter a rapist because he was Moslem and his victim was white or Jewish or Christian or Hindu, etc.. That political/religious leaders in Moslem countries would praise those who wasted their lives in a futile act of terrorism to destroy the World Trade Centre in N.Y. or allow followers of a criminal like O.B.L. to enter their country and to go about collecting the little wealth it's citizens have scrimped and gone with out so that people like O.B.L. can use that money to bring further angst to those same Moslems. To use them so utterly and with out any sense of human value.

Well, you've asked a grand question and the longer I think about it the longer the answer by your own Moslem behavior. The answer to your question does not lie with western society. It is the model you have chosen to mimic that is at the root of all your problems as Moslems. It is your worship of Muhammad. It is because you worship Muhammad and believe his life and actions are the highest ideals that you are referred to as Muhammadians.

If you worshiped God. You would behave differently and not allow the evil that has crept into your society to grow nor would you disrespect others with your left-hand while crying for respect and for others to be obedient to the command of those cultural institutions of your Islam that have kept your society in the dark ages. You go to Mosque and pray to Allah for all the things you need in your life. To be helped through the grace of Allah, then return home to behave like the man you worship, Muhammad, and then wonder why Allah has denied your prayer.

Do you believe Allah will allow any individual to profit by a lie? Islam needs a new role model for the 21st century and until that is accomplished you will live a very poor existence in this life. And that my dear friend is something each and every Moslem must deal with. That is the struggle. The jihad you should be involved with, would be involved with if you had leaders that actually respected you, and wanted your life to be an example of truth. Don't blame the west for what you are doing to yourselves. The worst you can say about us is that we want you to have freedom and personal liberty, to be the best person you can be and to contribute to the world as a free person standing on his or her own two feet.

We want you to be a man or woman who speaks his or her own words and thinks his or her own thoughts and is willing to accept that responsibility. We have worked very hard to eliminate slavery in this world. Now we have to eradicate the slave mentality. That is the function of democracy. Wanna help?
