*Have you ever heard of the Mumbai massacre?

----- My Answer >>> I know about the Mumbai massacre since I happen to be a citizen of India. What you might not know that Muslims in and around India condemned that massacre in every terms possible. Indeed the Muslims in Mumbai even refused to allow the terrorists to be buried in an Islamic cemetary.Maybe Dr. Pipes can confirm it.

*Christians in the Holy Land are fleeing Muslim persecution. *All across North Africa, Arab Muslims are conducting genocide and ethnic cleansing against non-Arabs and non-Muslims, i.e. Darfur and the earlier Sudanese genocide against Christians and Anamists in the south of the country. The depopulation of the city Ghadames in Libya in order to "Arabize" the indigenous Berber people.

My Answer>>> You need to provide solid evidence to prove your claim that "All across North Africa, Arab Muslims are conducting genocide and ethnic cleansing against non-Arabs and non-Muslims". Major Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia have condemned the killing of innocents in Darfur. However Darfur is not even in north Africa. As far as Southern Sudan is concerned it was a civil war let's not forget it. In the American civil war more innocent Americans were killed than in the southern Sudan.Do you want to say that a similar genocide was committed during American civil war ? However why even now more innocent people is now being killed in Southern Sudan when the government in Khartoum is not involved in that area ?

*Why is the Bahai' Faith; a religion founded in Muslim Persia now headquartered in Jewish Israel? ???

My Answer>>>> Muslims in Iran did not and even now do not consider Bahai people a separate religious group. Some consider them as heretics but most of them consider these people pollitical pawns at the hands of the Zionists in Israel and West. Maybe you can tell me more about this one ?
