But you can´t even refute my previous reasons for hating Islam and its prophet. You simply make excuses. I think I must know your Koran and Islamic history better than you do. So all you´re going to do is make excuses. Those aren´t arguments for your religion. I would simply suggest to you that you read your Islamic history. Read Bernard Lewis, a Princton professor of Islamic and Middle Eastern studies who has nearly twenty books published in Arabic and is anything but a right-wing, "conservative" author. "The Crisis In Islam" is a short read and lays out Islamic history, thought, group-think, et al pretty clearly.

You will not find other authors in your part of the world: Daniel Pipes, David Horowitz, Brigette Gabriel, Robert Spenser, Steve Emerson and others, all considered experts on Islam or considered terror experts. (And all of them have had their lives threatened and even need protection when speaking in public.) You will not find their books in your part of the world because like I told you before their views cannot be tolerated in or even considered by Muslims - you áren´t ebven given the opportunity to consider them. Censeorship. Yes, they are called "conservative" or "right wing," but only because they give it to us straight without political correctness sugar-coating and no interest in appeasing Islamic hyper-sensativities. But they write the truth, verified by the Koran itself, historical facts, and religious decrees by Islamic scholars and imams.

You won´t listen to me, and you and the vast majority of Muslims will either disregard, reject, or make excuses for the things you are confronted with about your religion that the rest of the world finds repugnant and reprehensible because it is in your culture and part of your religion to consider any criticism "un-Islamic" and virtually dangerous. (And by the way...anyone in the West can criticsie Jesus and have no fear whatsoever of doing so. Artists, filmmakers do it and even live to make more art and films.) I feel sorry for people like you who are unable to deal with truth and reality. It may not even be your fault entirely; it´s part of your religious make-up and upbringing and isa deeply embedded into your psyche. And THAT, in a nutshell, is the problem the rerst of the world is forced to deal with.
