in response to reader comment: Truth about the number of Muslims in America

This is not a reply to the hateful fanatic who probably hates his own self but christians are supposed to be peace loving people unlike your statements that spur nothing but the creation of terrorism from American's against civilians of Muslim and other similarly origined individuals for no reason.

Jesus Christ says "by their fruits we shall know them", if we look at the last fifty years of muslims living in America, we will notice that except for the highly doubted 9/11 and the 1993 attacks which both have many contradictions and CIA plans behind them, Muslims have almost no records of generating any ACTIONS or ACTS of violence in any of our department of state statistics.

furthermore, if we look at the 1300 years in which Islam was the dominant force on earth, and there was no media to report massacres so they can be stopped before becoming of ethnic cleansing levels, we will notice for example that Muslims have protected the Jews and welcomed them and opened there hearts and lands and let them thrive in more than one circumstance, most famous is during the spanish inquisition when they fled the ethnic cleansing there.

in the famous Ottoman empire, it was reported Christians, Jews followers of other faiths that it was better and safer for civilians to live under the rule of the Ottoman Empire than it is to live under the rule of different christian ruled and populated countries in Europe,

I, as a christian say that, being fair and just when making statements is the ONLY way to be, or otherwise, one better label himself as a true terrorist by the the words he/she utters.

I am not even referring to the books of Islam, rather just referring to their fruits and actions, let us look at the Americans living in the super strict Saudi Arabia (and many other Islamic countries, but Saudi as the most strict of them). what do they say about the people there and theire treatment to us as Americans, we will be surprised to learn that most Muslims are alot more educated about the international community than we think we are. and that they know the the American People are indeed people that do not love going to their countries and killing their children etc.... and that these wars that happen, only happen for biased political reasons and financial interests.

most relevantly, let us look at the people that have bad impressions about muslims, you will notice that most of them have never come in real contact with Muslims, except for watching some news programs and reading other biased opinions on muslims.

lastly, and again as a reminder to my fellow Christian believers, let us not plant hate in our hearts to others as "what goes around comes around" and let us understand one VERY IMPORTANT FACT.

If Islam were to go back to full power, it will have no conflict with the USA or Europe in any way, Jihad or otherwise, the REAL reason, why Jihad was pursued in the centuries that preceded us was to spread the word of Islam and only for that reason, now a days that internet and media and available to all and no nation now restricts people from talking to others about their beliefs, the reason for Jihad is now OVER.
as a matter of fact if there is any Jihad for that reason, it would never be in the west, it would rather be in the Middle Eastern countries were muslims are not allowed to preach their beliefs, many Muslims come to the USA and the UK after running away from their governments as they were persecuted for nothing more than speaking about moral values and other peaceful and anti-corruption issues. and find the west to be the land of free speech indeed.

to eliminate terrorism in the world today,
