Hi kman,

I apologize. I don't recall getting this comment. I have been busy this week and am starting from the top of my emails and have not gotten to this response before that I recollect. I don't recall doing that. Thanks for giving me a second chance.

Muslims are not perfect. We are humans and we make mistakes just like everyone else.

Now, to the answering of your comments:

>>Let me make it crystal clear. You can peacefully negotiate with "peaceful" Muslims until you are blue in the face. I know there are millions of Muslims like a lot of Christians who know nothing of teir own beliefs. Christians when confronted witht the real nature of their own religion then love, forgive, give hard (money, time, etc.), fess upto all their own blindnesses and give any one a chance to deliver their own spiel.<<

Yes it is true that not all Muslims are following Islam. If they did then we would like you said be in a better position. Don't blame Islam or God for what some Muslims do in the name of God and Islam. Blame them not the religion. If you look to the religion you will see that they are not following it.

>>Muslims, "peaceful" or other wise, when confronted with the realities of their religion, bomb rape, murder, burn, and torture. The "peaceful" ones have demonstrated throughout all history and right up to the present moment that their religion never makes them strong or courageous. When confronted with a gun from their own mentors, mullahs, imams, leaders, they will cave every time. They have never demonstrated any concern whatsoever for their fellow mankind.<<

I disagree that Muslims, "peaceful" or otherwise, when confronted with the realities of their religion bomb rape and murder, burn and torture. This is untrue. Again, some and I am talking about less than 1% and definitely not all as you said. I am a Muslim and I have never done any of those things. Nor have any of the Muslims that I know have done any of those things. The ones we see on T.V. and media have done some of those things and are criminals but that is a very, very, very small percentage of and a long way from all Muslims. Let's entertain this hypothetically speaking by saying that there are over a billion Muslims and there are only about 6 billion people total on the earth. If what you say is true then if every Muslim does what you said then why are you still alive??? You do the math. If every Muslim is bombing or murdering, as you say, then all they have to kill is just 5 people then all you would have left is Muslims right now wouldn't you?

>>You can beat a dead horse as long as you want. He's still dead. The facts have always been that you cannot "negotiate" with Islam "peaceful" or otherwise. You can get them to talk at all kinds of venues and places and agree that you want "peace". It's always been a lie that their own religion tells them they can throw on the table. Smile, negotiate, and sign treaties. They NEVER stand behind them until they have attained their under the table objectives. At that point, the treaty or, whatever else you want to call it, is a moot piece of worthless paper<<

You would only have a point if all Muslims were to unite and bring back the Caliphate. To my knowledge, Islam has had no central authority since the 1920's. How can you negotiate with Islam when there is no authority that represents Islam? Any corruption in Islam will be fought by Muslims themselves from the inside out not from the outside in.

>>Great Britain, which is chock full of "peaceful" Muslims, has agreed to wipe all school curriculums clean of any mention of the holocaust - why? Because they are offended. "It never existed." History is always whatever lie the Muslims want to paint it as. They re-write history to their own people and, then demand the countries they go into re-write it. The next steps always lead to the "peaceful" Muslims going totally on board with any militant program that the radicals throw out there. Once they have dumbdowned the rest of the country's cowards, it's over.<<

That is probably not a good example because their meddling and "bomb rape, murder, burn, and torture" in the world could be why we are where we are at today.

>>They want a history that also, says they were in hard and strong with the Nazi government. We will never know how many Jews were gleefully shiiped out of the Middle East and intot eh Nazi slaughterhouse. I understand why the "peaceful" Muslims don't want the world to remember the holocaust. It's always about lying about all of the atrocities that Islam was into from DAY ONE to the PRESENT.<<

Muslims just want truth and justice and we want that displayed in the history which looks as if it has been distorted and we need to rewrite it if need be in order to get it to the truth.

>>You can smile and talk peace right up to the point they slit your throat. You can re-educate and "inform" them of all the "terrible" things their militants are doing and get them to say "Oh, my, yes, we have got to do something about it. We only want to live peacefully and raise our families, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah" You will die with a "peaceful" expression on your face as the blood drips from your just slit throat.<<

If this has happened without justification then those who did or do that without just cause are not Muslims and do not represent Islam.

>>This is not a race issue and cannot be dealt with as such. It is an empty relgion - Islam - with no power except that of the gun, bomb, hate, and the ever powerful "penis". Surprise me and convince me that you actually read my whole statement this time.<<

It can't be a race issue because there are over a billion Muslims of all races. Islam is not an empty religion. Why would over a billion people follow Islam if it was empty? There must be something good in it for them. I will tell you why. Because Islam is a beautiful religion and way of life, submission to the will of God. That love of God gives us the peace that some of the other 5 billion people on earth are seeking. I invite everyone to come to Islam and experience that peace, God willing.

peace
