Mansoor, you wrote:

>>Plato you seems to be enjoying seeing things upside down!<<

Mansoor, try looking at Islam upside down. You will get a better picture of it. Where ever Allah abuses kaffirs, or uses negative terms try inserting gentler words or words of praise. You will see a marked difference in its tone and tenor. Let me give you one example:

002.216 PLATO : Non-violence is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.

OR 002.216 PLATO: Fighting is not prescribed for you, as ye dislike it. It is possible that ye dislike a thing which is not good for you, and that ye love a thing which is good for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not. Allah is mighty wise, He needs no one to fight on His behalf.

See how much better this verse sounds with just some minor changes? Would the world not have been a better place if only Allah had chosen His words with more care? Try this exercise with other violent and abusive verses. Try it. Nothing will happen to you. I have been doing it all these years and Allah has not yet struck me down.

>>I just cannot understand how you spend so much time to completely negate, oppose and challenge your Creator. I believe Satan is riding on your brain otherwise normal human being can't be so insane!!<<

It took me just two minutes to negate Allah's verse No. 2:216. It is not a challenge, just a suggestion to Allah to improve the tone of his verses. Satan is on my brain because Muslims unjustly blame him for defying Allah. Satan was doing Allah a favour by not bowing to man as Allah insists that only He should be given that kind of respect. Satan gets blamed for doing the right thing just as you are blaming me now.

>>What I think, I mentioned very positive points and accorded calm replies to your blazing questions which were enough to turn me mad on you.<<

Your calm replies included your desire to crack skulls, eat bullets and wash your hands in blood. Very calm indeed!

>>But I now begin to realize that you are deeply frustrated.<<

Who will not be frustrated with Muslims who cannot see the evidence right from the Koran that it is a book which incites them to violence and war (2:216-217, 9:111, 9:120, 8:65, 86 etc) which abuses Allah's own creatures as najees, unclean, (9:28) and calls them the worst beasts (8:5, 6:39), are like panting dogs (7:176) and an abomination (9:95)

>>In fact more frustrated than I originally thought.<<

Yes I am getting more and more frustrated in trying to reply to you as normal logic and rational discourse seems alien to you.

>> May be your frustration is due to the fact that you are yourself unable to defend your own belief in front of me.<<

Now that's telling me!

>>I can well understand your problem. I only enjoy your fireworks which you throw on my faith, my Lord and my beloved Prophet.<<

I am hoping that some of the sparks from the fireworks enter your heart.

>>Your dirty allegations, negative approach and ill minded concepts are not going to hurt anyone. But the eventual looser will be you alone.<<

The intention is not to hurt but to throw some light on the dark areas of your religion. If Allah wants to punish me for showing Him in His true colours as a cruel, jealous being with a bloated ego instead of the benevolent god He claims to be and I succeed in the endeavour then I will have no regrets when frying in Hell.

>>Best of Luck!! <<

Same to you.

Regards

Plato
