Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: 1.8 Million Christians converting to Islam because they actually believe in it makes me laugh, but 1.8 million converting because money issues, pressure, social climbing, promotions, threats, to divorce ,to marry several women….etc. makes more sense.

i wanna ask of you 2 things :) , but let me start with this phrase " just because 80% of the people ( muslims ) are bad and mssunderstand what being muslim means ,doesnt mean that our religion is bad and violent :) , 1st read the quruan and try to understand whats the real story , and dont listen to the scheik who speaks in the mosques because half of them are ignorants. 2nd, read the old testament in the bible and see what GOD or preferably UR god has asked moses to do to the jews..." killing and butchering everyone who doesnt have the mark cross on his face " etc etc !!! read it all and see the unfairity of it.

i studied both religions and came up with muslims..:) who are much more peaceful. beside just a fact , if the christians are soo bad considered by muslims , then i wanna adress those muslims and ask them , why did the prophet muhammad send his people to the king of habcha who was a christian , to hide ? he told them go to that king because he is righteous and fair and a good king :) !! peace be with you friend . all of us need god in our life...not just muslims!
