al salam alakom

I am not a Muslim and do not particularly care about what Muslims hold sacred, or about how they see their existence. As a non-Muslim I have as much right to my world view as you do. I have the right to choose what type of person I will be. I will not get into the justifications and comparisons that you make of your superstitions. If I had to spend my life worrying about what superstitious people, like you, thought of my opinion, I would be incapable of speech. There being so many religions and sects to offend. One of the big advantages of having separate states and countries, is that they can have their own cultures and laws. The law of one country does not reach in to muzzle the people of another country. So feel free to have your own countries where you can have stupid laws based on ancient superstitions. But do not dream that those laws should be able to reach into our country and silence our people.

You said

"apparently you did not understand what is islam about or even how to understand quran. "

" and not understanding the essence of islam. your way of thinking is so wrong with all of respect you only take one side without knowing the meaning of the whole story i give you my sympathy because your way of thinking is limited which fascinates me ..."

You are not understanding the essence of free thinking, and do not have the basis for understanding that "the essense of islam" is as irrelevant to people like me, as the beans I had for breakfast yesterday.

"every muslim loves our prophet mohamed. no one have the right to talk about him in a bad way no matter who is this person. we all love and and respect our prophet mohamed . which is something that you will never understand . "

Your "love" only applies to you. It does not mean anything to Non-Muslims like me. You cannot force your "love" on other people, nor can you expect them to adhere to your cultural standards. Your demand represents arrogance of an unspeakable depth. It is quite simple, I will not force you to live by my standards, and you stop expecting me to observe yours.
