My thanks to Mohammed for his honesty, and sincerity. I can see you are truly an educated and wise man. I can also see that you have many attributes, of wisdom and patience, which can really make a difference in ones life. I am so impressed to hear you say you have 3 Jewish friends, you really like them, they are friendly, courteous, and gentle people.

I have a lot of Jewish friends as well, and I would not trade them for other friends who are not as sincere or caring, they are productive people, with businesses, who contribute goods, services and education to society, Jonas Salk created a cure for Polio, as well as many other Jewish Scientists contributions.

You have overcome all the negatives that many of the radicals of Islam have displayed. Why, because you are following the practices of what the true religion teaches its followers. I have friends who are muslims too, and they are so upset by the violence and intimidation that many radicals display. They are good people who want to raise their families and live in peace, and prosperity.

There is an old saying, you draw more flies with honey, than with salt. I was really bothered by Ahmadinejad saying that Israel will soon be wiped off the map, and many radicals believe they are apes and pigs. These are conquering words, Just like Adolph Hitler used to chant. He was ultimately defeated by the allies of Europe, once again the faith of our God was with us. General George Patton, always prayed before a battle. Actually he had quite a mouth, but the Germans called him the Pure Warrior...He loved the sting of battle, and was a brilliant Historian. He also loved freedom, and hated tyranny. He was an Icon in his time, and he was Tough!!!! I sincerely love Heroes in all Races, they are people to believe in.

I agree with you, faith is the key to understanding. Seek knowledge as a penitent person, and you will receive it......... I did not realize Muslim meant believer. Thanks for clarifying this for me. I believe Respect for others is also a part of religion. Aren't we all made in the image of God. Everyone deserves equal rights. I also believe we shouldn't judge others, Mt. 8:7- If anyone who judges is without sin, let him be the first to throw stones. I have always tried to remember this, when people get judgemental about others lives...

I wish you well, and thank you for being a good example for other muslims to follow.

Sincerely, Debbie
