Mr Soetero, from populous muslim Indonesia writes:

"That also when Israel bombing Gaza , no body said that Jews did it."

They most certainly did. 'They' being Iranians and Hezbollah - and no doubt Hamas and any anti-Semite anywhere in the world.

"When western colonialized all over the that not mean "Christianist" did it."
That is because there is no term 'Christianist'. There is no pseudo military doctrine in Christianity that the world must be conquered by the sword. Spain, Holland, France , Portugal and the UK came from Christian Europe. There reasons for colonialism were political NOT religious - ie. increasing the power and prestige of the various imperial powers. There is and was no 'Dar Al Christianity' or 'Dar Al judaism'.

"But when some accident did with some body whose religion was Islam, you said , its"Islamist".
I love it when muslims whitewash the inexcusable actions of their co-cultists. It would be almost amusing if it were not for the fact that what is being covered up is beyond barbaric. What 'accidents' are you refering to Mr.Soetero? The accident of 9/11 - that had the main culprits living and training in the US for a year so they could turn themselves into pulverise protoplasm - along with 3,00 innocent human beings? Or the Bali bombing 'accident'? Or the London Tube 'accident'. Or the Beslan school 'accident'??

"Also WW II does not mean the Christianist war. "
See above - the players were from a Christian culture - mostly fighting amongst themselves - so obviously it was not to bring Christianity to the world was it? And Japan was not Christian. And had it not been for Christian USA - yuo in Indonesia might well be speaking Japanese now - and practicing zen. (would that be such a bad thing?)

Religion played little to no role in WW@. Unlike the undeclared Muslim vs everyone else war w in which an ideology which some peope accept as being a valid religion - is it's raison d'etre.
