The war in Darfur is completely wrong and who said that we in the muslim world are silenced by our own will ... I'll tell you one thing about muslims and the arabs in genral .. The rulers,the governments and every man in power in the arab countries are not the reflection of the arabs living in their countries....

In fact we suffer a life of dictatorship and if someone go against the president he is done .. But in fact this life is much more better than having occuping forces on our land in the name of fighting terrorism cuz they are not fighting terrorism they are fighting us and destroying peace.. And wars have never solved problems.

So the silence about Darfaur war is a reflection of the dictatorship ruling and not the muslims... It's just the rulers can't prevent our nations from sympathy with the peoples of Gaza against a foreign intruder or there will be revolution and that's what we need here but we can't do it cuz we don't want another country to come and mess us up ...

And do you realy think that Israel has accomplished it's goals by killing these civilians... Well it hasn't accomplished anything but killing... And im not against anyone no matter what his religion is and that's something i've learned from my Islam .. Non-muslims have the rights as muslims in my religion but we are just told to tell them about our religion... And we are not told to blow ourselves in civilian targets like terrorists do and mind corrupting plays a great role in that...

In fact if you lived in an arab country you would completely know that muslims are not terrorists and the media just make the Islam is the basic religion of terrorism .. And it's not .. If you just think it out and gathered more information about Islam and the Quran you would know it's the truth and everything is written in the Quran is no doubt right ... The problem is you are not trying to do that and you think you are right so we are all wrong and that's not a way of knowing the truth...

So we (the muslims) don't hate anyone no matter his religion is and we are told to treat non-muslims the same as muslims and they have the same rights.. You might ask christians living in our countries how they are treated by muslims .. I have alot of christian friends myself and we trust each other greatly... And what Im writing here is the reflection of every muslim living in the middle east .. we are not politicians but we just want peace and that's what all peoples want .. We want to live a life of peace wit other peoples not to produce hatress to them....

And my religion is the only true religion on Earth and that's something I've been studying for long.. I've looked at other religions and my conclusion brought me back to my religion ... You might look this up and ask yourself "why this guy and all muslims are holding their religion so tight and it appears to me it's so wrong??"... And you might search for the answers and compare religions... Thanks and may Allah guide you
