Mr. Tovey,
As of your comment I would like to give some of my own views.

Since most governments in the majority-Muslim countries are brutal and corrupt which renders grave problems for education as well as modern Islamic scholarship therefore I believe that Americans who are more educated and have a better mindset will be able to interpret Islamic scriptures better than oppressed Muslims in these so-called "Islamic" states. I still hold onto this view.

Now kindly tell me why people in the west particularly Christians like you always consider Muslims as anti-thesis of Christianity even when Muslims comes to you with a broad and open mindset ?

Have you ever thought about this fact that whenever there is a genuine debate between Muslims and Christians like you on the matter of faith , Christians tend to denigrate the very character of Prophet Mohammad(Mehmet) whereas Muslims always show respect and reverence for Jesus and other Jewish prophets.

Please tell me what is your problem if Muslims want to contribute to the future developments in the West ? Are they lesser human beings than people like you ?

Please tell me what is your problem if Muslims want to claim Jesus Christ and other Jewish prophets as their own ? Is Jesus and other Jewish prophets are the paternal property of Christians like you ?

And finally about on the question of whether US constitution is based upon Judeo-Christian principles or not , my answer is that just have a look at the founding fathers like Thomas Jeferson and Benjamin Franklin. These were people who do not interpret Christian scriptures like you do so they did not believe that any particular religion or culture shoudl have the final word on the constitution of USA. That is why they separated the church and state. Can you kindly give any counter evidence against this Mr. Tovey.

I would like to end with a kind request to you , Please tell me why do you think your interpretation of Christian scripture is the only TRUTH ?

I do not know whether this post of mine will be published by the moderators of this forum. If they publish it then Mr. Tovey kindly give answers to my question

Thanks & Regards
Debanjan
