"You need to read more about the real Islam, the real which ignored from contemporary western thinkers."

Why do I need to read more about the 'real' Islam? after having read Koran , much of hadith and books by various Sufi's - I for one have a reasonably good idea of what it is on about. Which 'real ' islam? The Sunni version the Sufi version the Ahmadiyya version - the Shia version? Books and wonderful thoughts about something will not take you were you want to go. people judge by actions - not what is said. Unfortunately the actions of Islam as a whole belie the wonderful Arab fantasy world that its adherents believe to be a reality.

"Do you know that there is a real struggle between the liberals and extremists one. I'm one of them, so, someone like ayatullah Sistani is one of these persons. Ayatullah Sistani refused always violence and killing, before years go when Americans liberate Iraq he make fatwa accepting a Christian president if he elected for Iraq, again when Mr Jones says he ll burning Kuran, Ayatullah again refuses any kind of violence or bloodshed, he ask Shia Muslims to just use words and no more than talk"

The struggle between extremists and liberal Muslims may well exist. But it is a very silent struggle - and one which will not be won easily by the liberals - because of the bloodthirsty nature of their opponents. It is so hard to build compared to how easy it is to destroy

"... My brothers, you forget whom help your grandfathers, Franks and Anglo Saxons when they went to holy lands, who help them? only Shite Muslims,"Shia whom believe that when Imam Mahdi return back with Jesus, they believe a 100 thousand Jews will follow him in per a day, but Sunni believes he will kill a 100 thousand of Jews."

Ahmedinajab is a Shia isn't he? He'd like to kill 100 milion Jews if they ever existed. Can you explain that ?

"....As you see, is too different, I 'm with you about hate terrorism, but is too different when we explaining ideas. You are not grand infidel of Kaffiristan, you are the great lover of freedom. Just accept my friendship and respect."

Ah yes - but we forget that true freedom is a state of being - it's totally an internal realisation - once the awareness has become unfettered from fears and limiting beliefs. I do not hate muslims - I have a great disdain for anything that poses as enlightenment yet is actually complete ignorance - unknown to itself.
