You got the point and I got the point.

I never believe a claim from one organization which is not neutral, not only CAIR, but other religious-based organizations, even Christian-based organizations. Don't tell me bullshit here.

I don't see any comment of the problems in Northern Ireland and Iraq has something to do with religion. I learnt Ireland history very well, the main problem is that want an independent state from England. If catholics and protestants are fighting with each other, the violence will not only happen in Northern Ireland.

I also never know that US bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the name of religion. Even when they wreck Iraq now, they never do that in the name of a religion. But, look Osama, Ahmadinejad, or your fellow berthren, they say kill others in the name of their god.

My friend, go to a country where moslem is majority, such as Indonesia and Malaysia. Their tactics to convert people from other religions are just the same. I lived there for so many years. However, I don't blame them as long as they're doing it peacefully. What I don't agree is if we convert people using violence. It is not the problem of one religion, it's the problem of any developing countries which have a majority religion. If Islam, Christian or other religions want to convert people by luring them with position, wealth, better living conditions, that's good, at least religions help people have a better life.

I think I see what Karl Marx ages ago told us, that religion can act as an opium to people. It makes people hallucinated that they're right and others are wrong. Next, kill the infidels....
