It's a good thing from you to call me your friend

To make things clear the attackers of 11/9 in Islam ,they are from the destroyers and killers .

All the muslim Shieks around the Islamic world have agreed that this is a criminal action by all means and it has nothing to do with Islam..

I can tell you that Islam has never told us to kill innocents in any case ..

If you reviewed The Holy Quran you will find some Suras describing violence but most of non-muslims think that we are commanded to kill innocents ..

But in fact The Holy Quran is valid for all ages and that's why some people think that The Quran is prescriptive and not descriptive,and they think that this is wrong..

Because the Holy Quran descripes situations and doesn't tell the place and the time unless the situation is not repeated over the ages or unique

We should agree that all tha books are the words of Our God, this can make it easier to understand The Holy Quran

But the fact is ,or what the muslims believe as apart of their religion is that the books before Islam has been distorted

So what Im saying it's hard to convince someone to go against what he has brought up to, that's why it's hard to convince someone to change his relgion

But believe me Islam is a religion of peace and never told us to kill innocents and also we are not allowed to decide whether someone is goin to hell or heaven

So about the 11/9 it's a criminal action and forrbidden from Islam and I feel so sorry about it

But these actions are most likely the result of brainwash and wrong understanding to Islam rules and it's not that some have access to the full truth and some don't

So I hope you understand me and I wish that these words make sense to you

And Merry Christmas to you ... Thank you
