I'm not responding to the core message is you directed it to Plato (PBUH) and he's more then able to respond to it in a proper way.

"- Muslim are biggest religious population in the World (this what Vatican's Holy Sea says) , they don't deserve this treatment."

What the vaticans says is correct and wrong, because they are comparing grapes with apples here:

They see catholics, protestants, etc... as separate religions and not as christians.

While taking Sunnies, Shiites, etc... are all seen by them as muslims while they alse are separate parts of the same religion named Islam(correct me if you don't agree on such)

When you remove the flawed logic and take the pop. of the christian religion and compare it to the world pop. of muslims you see an entire different result. there you'll see that the christians are consisting of 37% of the world pop. and muslims but only 17% or something... (I might be mistaken about the figures but they are roughly around those two numbers.)

So... hum, there are still way more christians then muslims. Or more Catholics than Shuniis or Shiites.

But you're right on the part that the pope(PBUH), as demented he possibly may be, and/or the vatican has publicly declared such.

You then say muslims don't deserve this treatment. Possibly most of them don't.

But you do know the saying: He who sees a crime and stands by doing nothing is as guilty of the crime being commited as the one doing it.

When muslim terrorists do harm, when a muslim mob attacks a dutch embassy and no (or almost no) muslim leader goes on tv attacking those evil deeds as UN islam and EVIL as they probably are. What do you suppose those hurt will think?

I suppose you know this answer. the hatred said on this forum towards Islam is a direct result of the silent complience done by the so called "moderate islamists" towards those actions of violance against innocent.

The rest, I suppose Plato(PBUH) will be answering in a proper manner if he feels like it.
