in response to reader comment: I believe you ...

Maybe I should thank you that you at least tried to belive me even if you were trying to be sarcastic about it. But let me tell you that what I've read here is typically what the media ( the wrong one ) is claiming.....Mislims are Terrorists......Islam and Terrorism go hand in hand .....really have you actually gone through the real meaning of TERRORISM...did anybody bother looking for it in a dictionary.....being in a state of submisssion and fear due to any reason .....is terrorism.

So if I am afraid of anything I am terrorized. This word existed and will continue to remain in the dictionary for ever but all of a sudden we use it to define Islam because being a muslim = terrorist=death o.k then if that is the case then Global warming is terrorism because excessive greenhouse gases= global warming= death to mankind and the destruction of the Earth, which eventually will point hands to USA which produces over 25%of the green house gases....do u see where is this leading?

And if I'm going to believe everything that the media shows to me then I should believe from the American soap operas or sitcoms or whatever that all the christians don't attend sunday school, are drunk all the night, or the US is made of 2 groups of people criminal and cops,or ....or...Those are the messages I receive but I DON'T BELIEVE THEM....prove is you're completly concious , reading my comment probably at your place ir work not in a cell!!

Muslims don't 'nit-pick' quranic verses - out of context - in a futile attempt to 'prove' that Islam is a religion of peace.We know it is a religion of peace from what our Quran and Prophet's life tell us we dont need to prove it . please tell me the name of the chapter and the verse that says that non muslims are considered as cow dung or any such thing.......

The verse may say that you are considered as Kafir (non believer) or that you will end up in hell but that is our religious belife like any other religion that considers it's followers as believers and the other non believers. And if you've really read the verses carefully you would have known that muslims are asked by Allah and Prophet(peace be upon him) to respect other religions especially the heavenly ones (christianity, judaism....etc). so switch the Ts , it's Tolerance not Terrorism...........have a nice day
