in response to reader comment: Which God?

You know as a Muslim what is so annoying is the hypocrisy spewed by ignorant people ...here in the US in general. First we support and train Osama Bin Laden to do our dirty work against the Russians in Afghanistan then we support Iraq to do our dirty work against Iran. We promise the Kurds we will back them up against Saddam and sit back and watch them get slaughtered. We attack Iraq because of his weapons of mass distruction and kill hundreds of thousands of people for a war that is about oil. McClellan, the past white house speaker, is saying what any rational person already knows, that this administration is beyond corrupt.

So let me ask you which religion is more violent Islam, where the people are fighting for their way of life in the only way they know how or Christianity who drops bombs from afar killing hundreds of thousands under the impression of liberation? I thought it was Jesus that said turn the other cheek.

We support dictorial MiddleEastern regimes as long as they do what we say and could care less about the people and now we are surprised that people are sick of us and are attacking back. People, when you want to voice an opinion study both sides, have a freaking clue what you are talking about.

Example, how many Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. Common Sense, he is so clever he knew he was going to be running for President so he joined a church for 20 years waiting for his chance to rule America. The patience of this man is uncanny... That is what I am talking about, think. Nobody wakes up one day and says I am going to fly planes into a building, something pushes them into such a fanatical state. We keep sticking our nose in other peoples business and are surprised when we get it slapped. Focus on taking care of our house look what is happening because we havent.

As a Muslim we are taught that killing is a sin just like every other religion the difference is when a Muslim is oppressed, his religion is attacked or his way of life is endangered he has every right to fight. "Give me liberty or give me death" Here is where the thinking comes into play again. If China came here to the US and said the way you people think is stupid and we are going to liberate you and you are going to do things the way we say. There is not a single American here that wouldnt fight so why should we expect anything different from the Muslims. Think people, think.

Peace.
