Dear Prashant ,

Thank you very much for making this great point :

" most Islamic societies (nations or groups of people) pay lip service to good values related to freedom and liberty but conveniently sacrifice them when they conflict with the idea related to preservation and expansion of Islam"

Your 10 examples of how it looks like in practice are very illuminating. I think therefore that it would be much easier for every non-Moslem to understand what we are dealing with here by simply substituting the obscure Arabic name "Islam" with its more common and more understandable English equivalents like "lying","double talk","doublespeak","hypocrisy","duplicity", "casuistry","fraud","hoax","swindle","counterfeit" etc. ...

The so called "Allah" is described with 99 names.Well, I am sure if we made an effort we could promptly describe the so called "Islam" with 99 names too. Some names have been given above and English vocabulary is copious enough to easily help us with the task.

Submitting....
