in response to reader comment: Islamophobia? really?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem seeks to focus on personal attacks to divert from the issues. You again seek to identify me ethnically with a nation that you negatively characterize and again to comment on my English shows ;you are impolite at the very least. I may be careless in not reviewing my hastily written comment to avoid incoherence or grammatical mistakes by I am a native born American but have connection withTurkey through marriage and through Islam as the son of an Austiran Jewish father who accepted Islam and lived in the US.

The understanding of Islam that one may get by interpreting or applying verses out of context or by applying a standard that so called civilized nations today apply that allow them to commit aggression and murdrer in the name of self defense and what G_d has given them that allow them to deprive others of their legitimate rights and seek to have hegemony over other nations and peoples in the name of democracy and imposing their concept of freedom that deprives others of their right to govern themselves according to their ethical standards does not contribute to peace. Most of the writings here are designed to divide and not to achieve harmony. Why has no one quoted the verse which says that we love them(non Muslims( but they love us not. When we add up all the killing done in the name of Christianity, Jewish nationalism\'anti communism and democracy it still cannot compare with the jihad that has been done in the past and today. ( I realize that his paragraph is run on and may not be too intelligible but I am very sleepy and my previous attempt was lost. I apologize for that.

Let us try to understand one another and not to demonize to support a political agenda whether Arab or Israeli or an anti-Islamic one or an anti=Jewish one, Too many people are being killed or continue to suffer without seeking peace with justice.
