Submitted by Waseem Khan (United States), Oct 7, 2005 at 14:14

... we all don't beat our wives, we dont marry four women. If you read about history you will learn that muslims were the first religion to allow divorce or property rights for women. History also states that the action one muslim burning down a church started the crusades,but the assersion that christians won is wrong. Turkey is still islamic, as is most of north africa. if muslims are so bad why did not the people return to thier faiths? As for patriotism, i live in the us. i never want to see a body being carried whether muslim or jew or christian. We are all gods children, whether you like it or not, we should treat each other with respect... People read and listen, the message of islam is right, but the people delivering it now are wrong. Muslims are a viable force have been always will be.

to some of the readers comments
1) Romans were polytheists at their height, not christians. in fact christanity was the end of the roman empire.
2) Christianity also had as embarrassing an episode with the dark ages and the salem witch hunts.

Guys if you look you will find ills with every group of people, with muslims it is terrorism, whith christians is pedophelia in the church, jews is their arrogance. The day we realize that in the end we all live on one planet is the day we are better
