in response to reader comment: Why Egypt is organising arsenal of Modern Weapons : Stop supply of US weapons to Egypt now

You said that "If Egypt is friend of Israel, why it is buying weapons?" but is Israel a friend of Egypt??? and if it is why does it has NUKS and other weapons of mass destructions!

I just really don't understand all those people who hate Islam and they don't even know anything about it and about its history. The ironic thing here is that it was certain evil groups of people in the west at certain periods in history that killed and abolished the Jews not Muslims. The Romans did it, so please stop lying to yourself! Most of you who say Islam is this and that, hasn't got a single clue about Islam. Did any of you know that Flamenco was the result of Muslims and Jews living together in Spain under the Christian rule, which oppressed them after the reconquest.

Islamist doesn't hate Israel, even though they say they do. It is the murdering of the Palestinian people and the demolishing of their properties….etc that has been going on for the last 60+ years is what driving some Muslim to become extreme in their views, also the foreign intervention of some governments in the Middle East. In every religion there are people with different opinions, some are extremists who think that it is what the religion wants them to do and others are just normal fair people who follow their religion word by word. I just have to say that Muslims are here to stay. You are talking about 1.3 billion Muslims worldwide and growing; you can't stop them from developing and progressing in all directions. Try to understand them, it might help create a bridge rather than judging them from what you see or read on the media. Also try reading about the history of Israel and the Middle East from different perspectives.

That is all for now. All replies are welcome.
