Of course you can

GIK could care less.

What is puzzliing though is why muslims are on blogs like this making ridiculous claims and defending ridiculous claims of things they have never witnessed , splitting hairs over arabic grammar etc etc - yet do absolutely nothing about their fellow believers strewn across the globe who are causing pain and suffering to living human beings today.

Why have these muslims who know and enjoy the benefits of living in free and democratic societies do nothing at all in changing or at least influencing those muslim civilians in muslim lands who seek to main and kill other people because they have different beliefs. Whether it's Hindus and Christians in Pakistan, Christians in Nigeria, Amadayahs in Indonesia, Bahai's in Iran, Copts in Egypt - there is a profound need to rein in the activities of these most devoted of Allah.

And if it's too big an big ask to actually get them to understand that non-muslims are actually human beings and have as much right to a peaceful existence as the most illustrious mufti (after all the Koran- they ARE infidels and 'Allah' doesn't like them) - for a start get them to stop torturing and maiming or killing other muslims.

Yet nothing is being done. Perhaps Mr Amin can point us to hopeful beginnings in this area - such as MuslimagainstMuslimSlaughter.com - or something similar. Something telling these miscreants that they have it all wrong.

Or is that not felt viscerally enough to do anything about? Or is the attitude 'it's Allah's will and who are we to stop it'? Or worse still - Muslim actually agree with the ends if not the means - and tacitly support it?
